Reverse Engineer Discussion

Murphy77 on Reckless PanInfinicon

Have you considered Fevered Visions in place of Reverse Engineer? I like to think that free summoning of Ornithopter does more later in the game than Cogworker's Puzzleknot or Servo Schematic, which are better early-game cards. The focus must always be to get infinite thopters - when Reckless Fireweaver will win the game, or Salivating Gremlins will bulldoze any resistance. To this end, I would consider adding in at least 2 Pia's Revolution to keep artifacts coming back to your hand, or something like Perpetual Timepiece to get them back into your library.

Other commanders you might consider:

I would highly recommend to reconsider your commander-picks. Garza Zol, Plague Queen as well as Thraximundar are not likely to help you get your win conditions. They are very expensive and may not even help the conundrum of this deck as well.

Other cards you might want to include in your deck:

I love this deck and you can't argue with that price either, i would add more Reverse Engineer however since it is excellent card draw for cheap due to how many artifacts you have. Also Metallic Rebuke can be good against control spells that either destroy artifacts and creatures, or can bounce your attacking creature back to your hand. Maybe add some in sideboard?

I like this idea, my suggestion is you need card draw. Maybe dump the Ghostly Wings for Reverse Engineer?

Tezzeret's Touch ist something I've always wanted to tinker with and is a card stack of tech I need to try.

I just bought into MTGO, so I can test more readily.

Since artifacts are a sub-theme in the deck, Abrade isn't a huge concern, though the card is still very good and versatile.

Hope of Ghirapur can silence the opponent or set up you locking in a T4 Tezzeret the Schemeror whatever.

As far as the deck goes, my T3 could use some work, usually leaving up all Mana for counter, kill spell or best case - leave up 1 blue and 2 artifacts for Metallic Rebuke, cast Collective Brutality or another rock.

Getting into top-deck mode usually puts me at a severe disadvantage, so I will look to add either Jace, Unraveler of Secrets or Ob Nixilis Reignited to the Mainboard. I used to run multiple Reverse Engineer but I found it wasn't as good in multiples. I'd prefer something at instant speed.

The promos should remain as support cards but it would be nice to see more playable cards as promos, I really only found uses for Unlicensed Disintegration and Aether Hub.

As a modern/legacy player I would also would have liked to see more staples from those formats as promos like the old days but one can only dream.

Basically, if the promos had been things like Abrade, Stasis Snare, Harnessed Lightning, or any other support card that is popular in standard I would have been fine with the promos, but Reverse Engineer and Crumbling Vestige sure they are decent cards in the right deck but I dont think they are ideal promos.
