500destinies on Brood Combo [Turn 3 Win]

Thanks for the suggestions! I like Welding Jar and Herbal Poultice to protect the combo pieces. A lot of what you're suggesting is a little slow though. Fabricate and Zephyr Scribe are great at finding combo pieces, but then you have to wait a turn in order to actually combo off. That's the whole reason Springleaf Drum is in the deck--it speeds us up.

Adding red is super cool, i need to ry it sometime. My only concern is the manabase for izzet can get costly and this deck was supposed to be budget. Oh well... the life of a magic player is expensive.

I like this combo mainly because of the flexibility in the cards you can combo off with. One 0 mana artifact (Welding Jar probably being the best, Herbal Poultice, or the creatures), one creature that untaps when the artifact ETBs (there are 5 different creatures that do this: Battered Golem, Nettle Drone, Zephyr Scribe if you use a non-creature artifact, Traxos, Scourge of Kroog which is also a wincon on its own, and Mirran Spy), one card that has an ability that triggers whenever a permanent, artifact or creature if you use them enters the battlefield (Molten Nursery, Altar of the Brood, Impact Tremors, or Nettle Drone does it as well), and Retraction Helix or Banishing Knack.

I think that adding red gives you some good options like Nettle Drone and Molten Nursery. I also think that you should run on average 6 of each of the combo pieces. Welding Jar and Herbal Poultice I think are better than Ornithopter and Memnite as they protect the combo. This is probably better than the nut draw of getting the combo out on turn 3.

Springleaf Drum only has one purpose and does not do much if you don't have Memnite or Ornithopter in your opening hand.

I've tried out both, and Mox Opal was a lot worse, even with two Darksteel Citadels in the lands. When you get a hand that enables the mox from turn 1, you don't get much else. And it gets even worse when you then sac an artifact to Kuldotha Rebirth. Springleaf Drum works even with no other artifacts, as long as you have a creature, and that makes a difference.

I've had a lot of fun out of Contested War Zone - it goes pretty well with your overall strategy in this deck.

Thank you for your advice, xyr0s. I remember Shrapnel Blast from the original deck, I just wasn't sure it was worth it because of its cmc, but I'll try them out. 5 dmg is quite a bit of extra reach.

Isn't Springleaf Drum just for mana filtering, though? Did you mean Mox Opal?

I also have one of these robot-whack decks, and find that you gain a lot by exchanging a few lands for Springleaf Drum. Then you could also add a couple of Shrapnel Blast, which acts like a kind of overpriced Goblin Grenade.

Aqueous Form, perhaps?

Also 1xHalimar Depths? Clearly, some better lands would be a huge help here, though I'm not your budget wants to shell out for them. I think for the very low AVG CMC here, you could probably be fine with as few as 19 lands - perhaps something like Terramorphic Expanse or Evolving Wilds might be a good idea as well to help thin and stabilize your mana base.

Some additional draw card maybe: Dangerous Wager, Thoughtcast, Tezzeret's Gambit

Other low CMC artifacts: Paradise Mantle, Springleaf Drum, Pithing Needle, Expedition Map, Steel Wall, Myr Servitor, Welding Jar, Elixir of Immortality, Ratchet Bomb

You might also consider Metalcraft spells...

How about a turn two win? With unlimited money, Mox Opal would make it possible to play a turn one Torgaar: land producing B, three 0-drop creatures, mox, tap for BB, sac and play Torgaar.

Stealing another idea from Affinity, Springleaf Drum could be a turn 1 play giving another way to turn a sacrificial creature into mana.

It looks like the biggest problem is that you're all-in on the Torgaar combo, but you're just not always going to draw Torgaar. I suspect you lose immediately to countermagic and removal is brutal.

Perhaps a reanimator subtheme to get Torgaar out of the yard if it gets countered, removed, or pitched to Faithless Looting? So maybe Goryo's Vengeance...
