Sram's Expertise Discussion

Use something like Diabolic Tutor to get the cards you want. Sram, Senior Edificer and Sram's Expertise would also be fun to play.

Reshaper also works well with Sram's Expertise!

More fabricate is my only suggestion. Also, cut ovalchase, and maybe Yahenni for some Sram's Expertise.

i am quite surprised it isn't included in the deck or has been suggested yet, but have you thought about including Prophetic Prism ? it fixes mana, draws you a card and can help cast your improvise spells. I know it's slower but i think it's worth the inclusion.

Also i wouldn't know whether it would work but there is the possibility of going less for 0 cost artifacts and for more value artifacts which would then also allow you to add Metalwork Colossus. Though this might slow you down (perhaps even too much), it might also give you more consistency as an extra wincon.

Furthermore Make Obsolete is useless. almost any token deck will have ways to pump their tokens and with Sram's Expertise they will do it the turn those tokens come into play. And it won't be good any good against aggro decks either. Rather i think Fatal Push could help you against aggro and your counter-spells can disrupt most token-decks (countering Gideons and Nissa's or a Sram's expertise can disrupt them heavily).

Looks cool. Seems like you can get rid of your hand really quickly for Lupine Prototype! Not sure how I feel about Authority of the Consulate, as it doesn't really speed up your deck as much as it just inhibits the other, and if you're playing against control or mid-range, it's just annoying to them and not necessarily damaging. I like Sram's Expertise... seems like it could be a good card! Let me know how it goes.

Delta-117 on New R/G Marvel Build?

I'm not sure how good this would be at all any of these ideas if mine,but the first thing that came to mind was Gonti's Aether Heart, along with Lightning Runner. Now this would mean however you would need a lot of artifacts and ways to reduce them in cost.

This has actually a lot of possible routes I think, you could go Panharmonicon, and lots of creatures for Aetherwind Basker such as things like Ishkanah, Grafwidow, Sram's Expertise, Servo Exhibition, etc.

Saheeli Rai, Panharmonicon, Gonti's Aether Heart, Aetherwind Basker, Lightning Runner, Foundry Inspector, Herald of Kozilek, Sage of Shaila's Claim, maybe even amusingly Aethersquall Ancient, or that new blue rare whale in aether revolt, are all I think possible ways in some combination you could build something like this.

I have to get going for a class of mine but I'm done for the day after this course, and I will definitely give this more thought when I'm not in such a rush as this sounds like it could have potential.

Chasm on Indomitable Gearhulks

@TheCrimsonGhost: Oath of Gideon is just another way to make tokens, although it could probably be removed seeing as we already have Servo Exhibition and Sram's Expertise.

I'm actually thinking of taking this in more of a burn direction, removing the Noxious Gearhulks and focusing on controlling the board until you can drop 3 Combustible Gearhulks at once. Currently this deck doesn't have much of a plan B if you fail to draw the combo cards.

@Lmlyvie, I did consider Oath of Gideon, I also thought that would work well in a mono white deck alongside Heart of Kiran and Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. Gideon can be ultied and crew Heart of Kiran on the same turn, pumping up any tokens, and allowing a big hit with Heart of Kiran in the same turn.

@Zaueski, the original list had many more creatures, and was essentially aggro humans, without the Expertise. It was pretty much G/W humans splashing red for Arlinn Kord  Flip. I don't think I knew about Metallic Mimic at the time. I may end up making and playtesting both lists to see which works better.

@BLEATH, you are right. 4 Gideon, Ally of Zendikar would be really good. Hanweir Garrison is another Sram's Expertise target though. Expertising without something to free cast feels so bad.
