Scrap Mastery Discussion
5 days ago
Gosse hey thanks for looking, been play testing your build some. Once I get a better feel for it I'll make some suggestions too, both decks play very different.
Crucible of Worlds is definitely next to acquire but so far the deck seems to run ok. You got the game plan right, daretti turn 2-3 and start pumping him up, MLD turn 4-6 and cruise.
The self mill combo isn't so much for completely milling out until I can figure a viable Possessed Portal lock(possibly a Past in Flames flashback->rituals->Scrap Mastery->Wheel of Fortune?). But I have found the orb to be great for finding pieces because the deck routinely empties it's hand and daretti's +2 really starts to suck when you get down to 1-2 cards, so I need something that can dig. I won't lie though, the deck folds to graveyard hate and aims only to get there fast enough hopefully to avoid it. Leyline of the Void, Rest in Peace etc is probably game with only Unstable Obelisk and All Is Dust as answers. Thanks again for your input, will return the favor!

Hey sweet deck! I also run Daretti in the command zone, very fun general. Mycosynth Lattice I find also sets up well with Scrap Mastery as we usually have more cards in general in our grave that come back than our opponents. Scrap Mastery turns into a mass land destruction spell in this case aswell as board wipe. it combos well with Clock of Omens aswell for a few extra untaps which somtimes lets me extend a little further. Darksteel Forge sets up an indestructible board with it and Nevinyrral's Disk locks out the game completely in this state. Ultimately darreties emblem combined with lattice makes for an impossible to remove board should you get there combined with a sac outlet u can even sac in response to back breaking cards like Merciless Eviction and get everything back at EOT. Interesting card this Masticore i currently run Metalwork Colossus but i think ill be play testing this guy soon :). Thx for sharing the list!

Thanks a lot MillionLittleE.
Desolation Angel may be cut out for Ravages of War but the Devastation will stay because it is an instant win in most situations I can build up to. I found it really effective. I consideres Impending Disaster and will keep it in mind. The reason I did not include it till now since it needs a full round to work.
For the tutors I will swap out the Diabolic Tutor for one of those if I can get my hand on them.
Peacekeeper helped me win a lot of games so it will stay in but I already thought of cutting Crawlspace, Ghostly Prison and Reveillark. With your suggestions I will have no trouble including other cards for them. Scrap Mastery is really usefull for turning around the game. Especially after an artifact whipe wich I encounter a lot.
For the lands. Thanks for the suggestion and I will build up the land base. This list was what I could get to get the deck started fast and reliable. Those fetches and old duals are hard to get.
Your last additions might get in filling the wholes in the deck. Thanks.

MartialArt These are some changes I would make if I was playing this deck in A general competitive meta, with no budget restrictions. Now I have no idea what your meta is but my goal was to lower your mana curve, and cut some of the less optimal cards. Saying that I have left some because I don't think that you would take them out anyways.
Mana Rocks: First I would take out Thran Dynamo, Hedron Archive, Chromatic Lantern, and Gilded Lotus. These cards are slow at three, four, and five mana you want to be doing impactful things, such as Smokestack or Nether Void. So the mana I think you should add is cheap and reliable. Mana Vault, Grim Monolith are great adds for cheap mana positive rocks. Land Tax is slow but powerful making sure you don't miss A land drop if you aren't going first and allows for A easier recovery after A mass land destruction.
Land Destruction: Desolation Angel, and Devastation are both seven mana mass land destruction spells, which by the time you get to them the game could be over, even after A stax piece. Ravages of War is already on your maybe list but I say it is considerably better than both these cards. If you feel like you need another Mass land destruction spell Impending Disaster is the next best one I feel, though it is still far weaker. Seven lands is not hard to have in A four player game between all players, and it could sometimes just be A sudo Standstill for land drops.
Tutors: Having A large number of tutors in the game is needed in cedh to make your deck consistent. Saying that I feel you should add the following tutors Imperial Seal, Gamble, and Grim Tutor. I know gamble has A drawback of discarding A card, but the potential upside is too good to not run. Now I said having tutors is needed, but have expensive tutors slows down the deck so with this I say Diabolic Tutor needs to come out. Four mana is asking for A lot when only searching for something needed. Would you pay eight for A smokestacks?
Other cuts: At this point I have suggested one more card, than I have said to take out. Saying that I see some easy cuts. Crawlspace, Ghostly Prison, and Peacekeeper all cards that stop combat, but Cedh almost no decks use combat to win. So I find these are easy cuts to make. Reveillark is A good card, but without A loop it is just slow as it doesn't even get back sun titan, and I would say no one creature is that important for you to play this card. I'm just letting you know how hard it was for me to leave your six drops alone, I'm just saying. I know why they are in there, it just feels bad seeing them. I feel like you have enough token generation for smokestacks to get crazy so I recommend getting rid of Elspeth, Knight-Errant as A four mana make A 1/1 doesn't do enough. Scrap Mastery may sometimes not do enough, I'm not sure how it has worked out for you, so I can't say much, but I don't think I'm A fan.
Other adds: Null Rod, and Stony Silence are just good mana rock hate. These hurt you too, but you know when they are coming so you get to play around them. Aura of Silence Just A good taxing effect that could be used as removal for trouble artifacts/ enchantments. Karmic Justice is basically A mini Martyr's Bond that doesn't work with smokestacks, could be worth trying.
Mana Base Upgrade: You had to know this was coming. I would add Badlands, Plateau, and Scrubland cutting the pain lands Battlefield Forge, Caves of Koilos, and Sulfurous Springs. I feel like this is an obvious change and I don't have to explain myself here. If you decide to add these in I recommend adding fetches, you have nine to choose from, but I'm only going to say seven, adding more would lower your basic count to a number I'm not comfortable with. I would take out Clifftop Retreat, Dragonskull Summit, Isolated Chapel, Dust Bowl, Ghost Quarter, and two Plains for Polluted Delta, Bloodstained Mire, Windswept Heath, Flooded Strand, Marsh Flats, Verdant Catacombs, and Arid Mesa. I left out the fetches that only got red in your deck. I did this because of red being the least important color to grab, and your blood moon effects makes your mountain count way higher than it looks. For the lands I took out I'm only going to explain the two land hate lands. I find that Dust Bowl is really slow and not worth the time it takes to set that up. As for Ghost Quarter getting rid of a trouble land is fine, but giving your opponent a land is trouble, i would say it's even worse that its a basic, making your blood moon lack weaker.
Personal preference: This is what you prefer Vandalblast vs. Shattering Spree vs. By Force. Read the Bones vs. Painful Truths

Past in Flames seems a little strange when you only have about 7 spells you would ever want to cast with it (Chaos Warp, All Is Dust, Wheel of Fortune, Blasphemous Act, Trash for Treasure, Gamble, and Scrap Mastery), and some of those are a little too expensive when you need to cast them on the same turn as Past in Flames. Personally, I'd rather play Codex Shredder and pay 1-2 more mana in exchange for being able to cast the card at a later time (and I'm not a fan of running Codex Shredder). Otherwise, Recoup covers everything but Chaos Warp and Comet Storm (which I would rarely want to cast off of Past in Flames).

Ok, I see long time no update, but if by any chance you still come here from time to time to look at things and maybe an update...
Scrap Trawlerwas printed and I think it can be awesome with 0 mana artifacts that sacrifice themselves to give mana (like Lotus Petal) or any low cost mana rock with a sac outlet. You could just crack the Lotus Petalfor mana, crack another artifact, return the Lotus Petal to your hands then on the battlefield, then start over again, never needing any more mana to crack your eggs. You could even possibly generate mana with this loop, depending on the artifact you use to produce mana (let's say Krark-Clan Ironworks+ Mana Crypt, this I think would be pretty good with Scrap Trawler).
I would also add in Rite of Flame and Pyretic Ritual, that way you would also have a winning line from the graveyard. Self mill with Basalt Monolith+ Mesmeric Orb, flashback Past in Flames to be able to cast from the graveyard Rite of Flame, Pyretic Ritual and Seething Song into Scrap Mastery, then you get infinite mana from one of the combo included in the deck and you can win from Goblin Cannon. All you need in addition to this combo is to start everything.

Scrap Mastery there are many places to put whole pile from discard, expel and facedown pile, but play is not one of them. Also s sents to expel, d to discard, to to top, y to bottom, but there is no hotkey for putting to hand or play. Putting cards one at a time from expel to play is annoying, but it would be more bearable if there was hotkey for it at least.

Teal_Fox thanks a lot for your comment and your suggestions.
Yes, I did look at Whir of Invention closely and lastly hesitated because of the triple U cost. On the other hand I play Necropotence which requires triple B to be cast and that never was an issue so far. Suggest me something to cut for it and I'll look to get a copy of it into the deck.
About Purphoros, God of the Forge and Eldrazi Displacer I thought as well, just exchange them with Deadeye Navigator and maybe Myr Battlesphere and push the curve down even further but I'm not sure hoow to come up with the colorless mana.
But now that i Think about it if I manage to get my hands on a Krark-Clan Ironworks and maybe an Enlightened Tutor I just might be able to pull this of quick enough.
Scrap Mastery is a great suggestion, I wans't even aware a red Living Death exists, I'll definetely be looking to add a copy of it to my deck, thanks a lot!
