Suggested Cuts:


  • Hymn of the Wilds (this card sucks in multiplayer. Every deck needs its instants and sorceries)



  • Brigid, Hero of Kinsbaile discourages attacks, even against other players, which is bad. If we had included Azorius hard control, stax or tax this card would be fine though
  • Gustcloak Savior I dont think it does enough
  • Herald of the Host Serra Angel isnt good enough for this format
  • Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip pikers arent good enough in this format, and he sucks as a planeswalker I think
  • Crescendo of War too slow
  • Dusk / Dawn I think that ultimately there wont be a deck that really benefits from this
  • Just a general note about white: we have too many pump effects. Lets cut a couple.










I think our next task will be deciding which are the best 50 or so cards in each color from our pool. that should lay the groundwork for deciding which narrow cards (i.e., archetype-specific) cards we should include. Curious to hear your thoughts on cuts/additions!

Hey! I like the idea of the creature tokens with flying, but I'd suggest more lords in the deck like Metallic Mimic, Master Trinketeer, or Angel of Invention especially angel given its ability to create more servos. Bumping Aven Wind Guide up to 4 copies might be better for consistency for flying servos. I definitely agree with the suggestions of Sram's Expertise and Reverse Engineer. Also, for more on color dual lands I'd suggest Irrigated Farmland. In terms of making room for these cards, I would try and limit the energy theme, especially with cards like Aethertide Whale not seeming like it has a whole ton to do apart from be a huge body, unless you have some huge energy payoff I'm just not seeing.

I hope this helps! Your deck looks great.

Hi, there! For a first deck, this looks excellent! Well done! I have just a few recommendations:

Hope this helps! Have fun with your deck!

for this deck, cards like Ensoul Artifact, Darksteel Citadel, Reverse Engineer, Herald of Anguish, Arcbound Ravager slightly expensive, Steel Overseer, Cranial Plating are all good cards.

Welding Sparks may work as well.

hope this helps!

Vaan thanks for the hints! I should work on a mayboard, Cranial Plating and Shrapnel Blast Sound like the thing I could use...especially the latter. Thoughtcast seems to be a better Option than Reverse Engineer, which Was my choice before, thanks for that that! I love the artwork of Etherium Sculptor and besides that it's Name suites my deck, hehe, but I prefer Foundry Inspector due it's greater power and colorlessness. I use low cost artifacts and won't use my GY so much,I don't think Scarecrone suits me, Darksteel Citadel is real cool tho and I was thinking about Whirler Rogue before too! Also I might use Efficient Construction

What I still wonder is about my Mana, still Need to find the right Balance. I want to have three Mana asap, but in mid game I usually draw too many of 'em..Anyway, cheers for the Input, I appreciate it

FullmetalWes I have been going back and forth between Reverse Engineer and Pull from Tomorrow. If I have Inspiring Statuary out, then pull becomes soooo much better, but if I don't, and I need a turn 2 play, reverse is a better card. That's why I run 2 of each in the deck and the board. I board the reverse in against aggro, and pull against control. Also, I never considered going green with the deck, how has it been working for you?

Reverse Engineer FTW! I would run 4...oh wait, I do run 4! I love Aetherflux Reservoir combos and here's my take on it>Get Fluxed Up. Hilarious breakfast theme btw. Have you played this in Standard? I'd love to know how you do. Good luck!

Added colored artifacts for the Dimir artifact archetype. Thought it would be a good idea to include some Dimir/X artifacts as well for some added variance.

OVERALL THOUGHTS: I'm a bit worried that this archetype as it is now builds itself too easily. I would prefer to have more cross-pollination among archetypes and less "this card is only good in the artifact deck". There is a risk that having both goblins (which are basically junk cards if no one is in the archetype) and artifacts (many of which are only good in the Dimir archetype) dilute the cube too much, making the less archetype-driven decks worse off due to fewer playables. What do you think?
