Scuttling Doom Engine Discussion

My discovery of Scuttling Doom Engine has made me take another look at this idea. Also thinking maby of Blood Moon in the side as this version isn't as soft to Blood Moon as other Tron variants are.

Cards with triggers when they die are best. Kokusho, the Evening Star and Scuttling Doom Engine are good choices. You already have Lord of Extinction which is great. Wall of Blood is dangerous, but a great combo kill if you are ahead on life. It's also absolutely nuts in 2by. I also suggest reanimation. Animate Dead, Reanimate, and Beacon of Unrest are good choices, and Phyrexian Delver is reanimate on a stick, a must include imo.

just a suggestion replace Welding Sparks with Shrapnel Blast

Shrapnel Blast+Scuttling Doom Engine=11 damage

Teal_Fox I love the idea of more untap abilities! Thousand-Year Elixir is definitely going in! I also love Scuttling Doom Engine! Most of what you recommended to cut I agree can go but War Elemental has been invaluable so far and as of right now still deserves a leading spot in the 99.

Poptartz95 thanks for the recommendation but Quicksilver Amulet is a bit too narrow. Also since I'm working on dropping my average cmc I see it's usefulness becoming even less. I have one tho and will play test it a bit and let you know.

bushido_man96 glad you chimed in! I've been thinking about trying Reya Dawnbringer in her just haven't given her a chance. Also Lifeline looks awesome! As far as steal cards go I'm only running a few because I don't really like them....

Thanks for the recommendations everyone once I get a few more cards I will update.

Herald of Leshrac is heavy on mana but is some super-secret tech that dunks on midrange and control decks. Grave Titan is also above the curve you were asking for, but it's worth mentioning because of how powerful it is.

I agree with others on Abyssal Persecutor. It's probably the best budget beatstick in mono-black in Modern. Desecration Demon isn't really viable in metagames with Lingering Souls.

The other thing to think about are the larger infect creatures, which are Phyrexian Crusader, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, Phyrexian Juggernaut, and Phyrexian Vatmother. You lose the ability to win via normal damage and life loss, but you gain creatures that are really efficient for their mana cost.

Distended Mindbender and Abundant Maw are also reasonable when combined with things like Solemn Simulacrum. Speaking of Eldrazi, don't forget the plethora of colorless creatures that you can jam into your mono-black deck. That includes stuff like Wurmcoil Engine, Duplicant, Grid Monitor, Silent Arbiter, Scuttling Doom Engine, and Steel Hellkite.

Lastly, there's Demigod of Revenge. You can combine them with Smallpox and other such discard outlets for maximum value. Nothing like dumping 15 power into play on turn 5!

At the very least, I would try to find room for Thousand-Year Elixir as that pseudo-Haste can be very key to ensuring you get value from your commander ASAP. Not to mention untap triggers are pretty great, so Magewright's Stone can also be a pretty powerful inclusion. And the ability to untap your general cranks up the value of cards such as Molten Primordial exponentially.

And let's not forget that Scuttling Doom Engine is just downright hilarious in this kind of deck. I'm also not sure why you would run Expedite over Hammer of Purphoros, as the latter is static and can even give you more fling targets should you start to draw into excess land. And speaking of land, Command Tower>>>>>>>Rupture Spire

As for things to cut, War Elemental, Invincible Hymn, Living Inferno, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Sunblast Angel, and Astral Cornucopia seem to be really slow cards for what they do, while cards like Stonehorn Dignitary, Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran, Bull Cerodon, Dragon Hatchling, Reroute, Wing Shards, and Desperate Ritual just look too low impact/situational to keep.

Anyway, those are just my impressions on the deck. It looks really fun and I hope you find my suggestions helpful.

Hey there! I love the idea of your deck, and have a couple of suggestions:

While I understand that my suggestions are expensive, I really think they'll make your deck much better. Hope I helped!
