Restoration Specialist Discussion

redace10 on Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith

Y'all are silly, Blade of Selves is outstanding for Nazahn, you get two tutor triggers of him from myriad (outstanding for getting the kaldra pieces together). In fact, one or two more tutors would do well. Steelshaper's Gift and Open the Armory come to mind.

Some more artifact recursion would do well, Buried Ruin and Restoration Specialist are two good ones.

I view Tragic Arrogance as a massive upgrade over divine reckoning.

Inspiring Statuary is amazing in equipment decks, a truly one of a kind card that helps power out the rest of your nonartifact spells. It usually pays for itself in one or two turns early or right away in the late game, and then some.

+1 For a really impressive deck, I would definitely suggest moving your land total up to 37 though. Maybe 36 if you feel bold, and depending which high cost cards you feel comfortable letting go. Regardless, once this deck gets a head of steam going look out, it looks very tough to stop :)

Interesting deck, most of the Geist decks I've seen go the enchantment route for a Voltron build, it's refreshing to see an equipment build. That said, you should pick one theme or the other and build it up, not both. I recommend cutting most if not all auras and honing your equipment build. A few suggestions -

Buried Ruin and Academy Ruins would be slam dunks in this deck, artifact recursion in lands are excellent for this format. Restoration Specialist is another recur card that warrants consideration, its cheap and good at what it does. Nahiri, the Lithomancer is also pretty excellent for that purpose.

Whir of Invention and Inspiring Statuary are two of my favorite cards for an equipment voltron build. The former always catches opponents by surprise, I love using whir to get the hammer of Nazahn in response to a board wipe. The latter ramps an incredible amount in an artifact deck. Using your plethora of equipment to power out the rest of your deck is really something.

Tragic Arrogance is one of the best possible board wipes for a voltron deck, it will totally ruin your opponents' board while keeping your side exactly as you need it. I would swap it in over divine reckoning.

I have my own Azorius Equipment Voltron deck, Untapped Potential - Dragonlord Ojutai. Take a peak as it may give you some ideas.

+1 for originality, some tweaking is needed but otherwise it looks like a solid deck.

Rikente on Alesha, Who Luls at Death

RUST-O that's what I was thinking as well. Ravos, Soultender is a more reliable Oversold Cemetery and a creature so it's easily recurred. I've been thinking about pulling the cemetery along with Restoration Specialist, and Ravos would replace that really well I think. Maybe I'll give him a try, thanks for the recommendation!

Also, do you have a list for your Queen Marchesa (long may she reign) deck?

@UnleashedHavok, If you check my infinite combos section Auriok Salvagers is actually part of an infinite damage combo. Restoration Specialist wouldn't fit this combo since its a one-time effect. I have considered the specialist before, and despite its effect being rare for the colors its in I prefer Argivian Find over it just for being cheaper mana-wise and usually it is all I need to get any combo restarted. Thank you for the suggestion though.

@Imraz, Thank you for the compliment. I really appreciate it!

I like this deck, much different from mine Alesha, Who is Unfinished, but I like it a lot. I struggle as well at times with other players that like to play with themselves instead of the table.

Anyway, have you considered Restoration Specialist instead of Auriok Salvagers? Seems like a value trade to me. Less mana up front, plus you can get an enchantment and an artifact.

StopShot on Alesha Infernal Enchantress: Sheathing the Sword

I'd recommend Restoration Specialist over Auramancer. It can also bring back your artifacts and since sacrificing it is part of the cost for the effect it makes it easier to recur it again with Alesha.

I used to have to run Treasure Hunter and Auramancer until they printed Restoration Specialist I love that card. I bought five foils and use it in any edh deck with white, and recommend it frequently. It's so good with its single use, but having Alesha, Who Smiles at Death or a Sun Titan in your deck just makes it better
