Sculpting Steel Discussion

SaberTech on Breya's Nonsensical Combo Death Machine

1 week ago

The cheap draw cards were mostly meant as a way to help smooth out the deck's early game consistency, which was an issue I had with the initial versions of my artifact deck. Thirst for Knowledge and Chart a Course also double as a way to dump large artifacts into the graveyard early so that they could be reanimated.

If you are keeping in Mycosynth Lattice, I think it would be worth finding a spot for Vandalblast. It's one of the best EDH cards in red, and since it can't hit your own artifacts it can combo with the Lattice to destroy all of your opponent's permanents and pretty much ensure your win. Unless your group has house rules against land destruction, of course. I don't see a move like that as being much different from an infinite combo, but I know there are people who would object on principle.

Oh, and I meant Sculpting Steel instead of Copy Artifact in my last post. I was typing while tired, so that mix-up slipped by me.

I like the arcane adaptation and myr turbine idea though you may want to add Planar Bridge since it does the same effect for 8 mana.

I think I would run Sydri, Galvanic Genius as my commander for this and a bunch of untap effects. If you get your combo out with sydri and a Voltaic Construct you can turn myr turbine into a creature and do this a few times in a turn.

Even better if you make copies of Myr Galvanizer with Sculpting Steel or something similar. 2 Myr Galvanizers go infinite with a single mana myr.

Admittedly I'm being a bit goofy since we are now talking sydri + arcane adaptation + Myr turbine + myr galvanizer + sculpting steel + a mana myr... That'd be magical x-mas land for sure XD

Maybe just an Unwinding Clock so you can do it once every turn instead.

Although copies of myr galvanizer can lead into other silly things too. Like infinite mana if you have 2 or three mana myr or an infinite Lodestone Myr or infinite Myr Propagator... You are digging through your library for the things you want so it could be possible to pull some of this together.

To put my more realistic ideas in one spot though: Unwinding Clock and Planar Bridge

Jace, the Mind Sculptor I also run jaky draw spells like Temple Bell+Unwinding Clock the bell can be cloned with Sculpting Steel Copy Artifact Clever Impersonator Phyrexian Metamorph and will draw up to 4 cards on everyone's turn

Tunnel Vision+Keening StoneHinder+Tunnel VisionTunnel Vision+Spell CrumpleKeening Stone on the field. Cast Traumatize. Use Keening Stone to double the cards milled.

Mind Over Matter+Temple BellJester's Cap+Bribery also can be useful

Hedron Crab is a mill staple Polymorph in any blue deck is good.

Blue Sun's Zenith+ any inf mana combo like Basalt Monolith+Power ArtifactPili-Pala+Grand Architect

Leyline of the Void+Helm of Obedience

Demonic Tutor Mystical Tutor Vampiric Tutor Imperial Seal and other tutors would make it run a lot smoother...

gflshade great question!

It kinda depends on the long term goals, so investing $40 in a good Boros mana base may be what you want, that way you can use the cards for other Boros/multicolored decks.

Besides mana base though, if I only had $40 to spend on this deck, I'd start with Recruiter of the Guard, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Enlightened Tutor, Sculpting Steel, and Steelshaper's Gift. All of these cards are great and most importantly can be used in almost any deck with these colors. Don't get something like Sneak Attack though because that's a splurge item :)

If you know this is the deck you want to marry for life, Phyrexian Dreadnought and Phyrexian Devourer are amazing includes/wincons.

The deck is nice because the gimmick theme keeps the price down. Ball Lightning creatures are all 50 cents because they're pretty bad anywhere else haha

Most of the price comes from all the value cards like Sun Titan, Solemn Simulacrum, Well of Lost Dreams, and Feldon of the Third Path. That's nice because they're pretty solid cards and again, fit into many decks.

Hope some of this helps!

also i forgot to mention

in my primer i talk about how wheels enable opponents not just due to mass card draw but the aforementioned filling of graveyards, since graveyard interaction is such a huge threat in EDH like this thread has discussed, cards like Bojuka Bog and Rakdos Charm are an absolute must to curb said graveyard threats

theres plenty of other options such as Leyline of the Void but i find the above 2 to be the easiest to cast, and rakdos charm comes with creature hate and artifact removal to boot, and they really help you get value from Timetwister effects when you shuffle your whole deck and they have no graveyard to shuffle away

cheap cmc countermagic like Pact of Negation and Force of Will are also essential, so you can deter major threats to your game plan such as hosers like Spirit of the Labyrinth

lastly, Memory Jar can be extremely abused in nekusar in that you can clone it with Sculpting Steel, Phyrexian Metamorph etc to exile multiple hands of 7 from your opponents deck, and you can discard what you dont want exiled to mind over matter or dream halls to get around exiling your own spells

Nelloh on Sen Triplets EDH

Exclusion Ritual seems way too specific for EDH, I wouldn't recommend it. Plus that mana cost is bonkers. In fact, all those enchantment (Nevermore, Oblivion Ring) are probably not ideal for EDH. You'd be better off replacing them with specific removal similar to Path to Exile, for example Anguished Unmaking.

You may want to consider swapping Augury Owl with Baleful Strix.

Also, since you have Sharum, you would benefit from Sculpting Steel and Phyrexian Metamorph if you want to play combos. These, in combination with Altar of the Brood or Bitter Ordeal, will result in a mill infinite combo, if that's something you want to use.

You could also consider replacing Akroma's Vengeance with Hour of Revelation as the effects are similar, the costs are the samebut there's a chance you might only have to pay 3 for Hour as opposed to Akroma's.

Lastly, if you want to get the most out of Sen Triplet's effects, you really need Chromatic Lantern or similar ways to cast mana that isn't in your colours. Looks like a fun deck overall though, I really love Sen Triplets.

hey there, i have a fully tuned nekusar deck with a primer that runs all the staples, check it out here

but as far as staples, all the sorcery wheels are necessary, as well as artifact wheels like Teferi's Puzzle Box, Memory Jar and Anvil of Bogardan, plus clones like Sculpting Steel

discard engines like Mind Over Matter and Dream Halls help you get value out of wheels and combo out. discard value like Waste Not and Liliana's Caress are also crucial. while a titan shuffling effect to stop from decking yourself with wheels like Kozilek, Butcher of Truth

Yawgmoth's Will and Mizzix's Mastery let you win once you've filles your graveyard with wheels

creatures like Notion Thief and consecrated sphinx usually draw you enough cards to win

definitely want ramp so artifact ramp like Dimir Signet and Lion's Eye Diamond work wonders, as do good rituals like Dark Ritual, High Tide and Seething Song

he is also weak to creatures so Damnation and Evacuation are quite useful

Crucible of Worlds really helps since you still get lands you wheel away or discard

lastly,ALL THE TUTORS, they help ypu fetch wheels and pain to win games and are staple in edh just like mana rocks
