Sculpting Steel Discussion

Krom3 on Halfdane's Carnival Of Copycats

Thanks for the comment man!

I originally wanted to run a dimir clone deck with Lazav however, I just have a general disdain for mill and most of the decks I kept coming across relied mostly on it, I checked out The Mimeoplasm afterward but settled on this guy simply due to the fact that I did not need to rely fully on full graves to be effective. Hopefully that helps you understand my decision.

As for the suggestions I completely thought I had Clever Impersonator in the deck! I cant believe I missed him. As for Sculpting Steel and Masterwork of Ingenuity I originally started tweaking the deck around using those however, I realized I don't run too many artifact synergies save for maybe Duplicant.

But thank you very much for the suggestions all the same man, Cheers!

I personally find the The Mimeoplasm to be a more interesting commander for the clone deck. White is nice an all, but black can do much of what white can, at least in the removal department, and green can make up for the loss of white's enchantment removal.

Depending on how deep you want to go into the copycat game here are some other options Masterwork of Ingenuity, Sculpting Steel, and Clever Impersonator.

you can go for an infinite combo to finish off the opponents for your alternate win condition.

Sharuum the Hegemon+Sculpting Steel/Phyrexian Metamorph+Disciple of the Vault would be infinite damage you can also do a basic infinite combo like Ashnod's Altar+Master of Waves+Blood Artist+Nim Deathmantle this is infinite damage as well as long as you have a devotion to blue of 2 or more so you will need at least 1 blue symbol beyond the Master of Waves if your devotion is 3 or more and you don't have the Blood Artist you will have infinite tokens instead. I doubt if these are combos you are looking for but I don't really play esper so I am not sure what else their is out there.

Boza on Masterworks, invocations to collect?

Platinum Angel - not only is the art beyond gorgeous, but the card is great in commander and even modern, with the printing of Madcap Experiment.

Chalice of the Void has a chance of seeing even more play in modern, same with Cloudstone Curio. Rings of Brighthearth is almost never being reprinted, so it will go up constantly cause Commander. Same with Sculpting Steel.

All the swords of X and Y are critically underplayed in Modern and are 1 card away from being powerhouses (or even a certain unban of the Stoneforge variety).

Hi nenya14! You could definitely replace the lands with a budget land base, and cut some of the more expensive ramp and draw spells to put in other ramp and draw. The hard part to replace would be the token doublers and the enchantment animators, but you could also try an artifact package with Mycosynth Lattice, Mirrorworks, Sculpting Steel, Phyrexian Metamorph, Prototype Portal, and Cogwork Assembler to copy enchantments after they are turned into artifacts, and March of the Machines, Titania's Song, The Antiquities War, Tezzeret the Seeker , Karn, Silver Golem, or Sydri, Galvanic Genius to turn the enchantments into creatures and attack. You could also just make creature tokens with Sigil of the Empty Throne, or win without creatures using Induced Amnesia.

Winterblast on Breya - Etherium Singularity

I can't find the best copy effect here: Copy Artifact

Sculpting Steel might also be worth including. I would make some hard cuts among the top cmc cards and add at least signets and Talisman for ramp, better would be 0 drop rocks as well obviously. I could see Phyrexian Revoker work well here, maybe Lodestone Golem too. Tezzeret the Seeker and Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas would do more work in the deck than Karn imo. You might also want to look at Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast instead of some ridiculously expensive removal engines like ethersworn adjudicator...

Liquidbeaver on Argent Moon: Liquimetal Control

So the deck was missing a little something, and I think that something is...

Blood Moon!!!

Adding the Blood Moon package in the same manner as Blue Moon decks do really adds just that last little bit of control to the deck, and you only have to change the land package. This way I will take a lot less shock damage as well, since the fetches are used to find basic Islands first. It actually makes it a little less worrying to face down an Assassin's Trophy as well, when you have a bunch of basic lands.

Blood Moon makes Remand even a little bit better, when they have less of a chance to be able to recast what to put back in their hand, and since this is my first control deck I had never thought about Remanding my own spells to take counters off of TiTi.

Adding a Sculpting Steel because the number of things I can copy with it is awesome. Who wouldn't want their own Emrakul?

Down to 2x Muddle the Mixture. The transmute is really nice, but that ended up being all I was using it for, and I often had multiples in my hand that I wasn't using. This opens up space for the Sculpting Steel and an Izzet Charm, which has been a great addition.

Any thoughts on Cryptic Command? I think it would be too hard to add, but this is also my first real deck with blue in it, so maybe it is worth the effort to smash in.

Liquidbeaver on Argent Moon: Liquimetal Control

Dropping 2x Argent Mutation, and trying to pick between these options:

2x Sculpting Steel - Copy any permanent with the help of Coating.

2x Myr Landshaper - More opportunities for land destruction.

2x Spellskite - Great chump blocker, and can protect combo pieces or even me.

2x Bedlam Reveler - Little more end game insurance.

2x Isochron sceptar - Lots of copyable effects

2x (Counterspell/Draw/Control/Removal?)

Any thoughts?
