Sram's Expertise Discussion

Hey, really interesting deck. Tilonalli's Summoner makes this deck unique.

Summoner is so much better with the city's blessing I suggest adding Servo Exhibition and Sram's Expertise to archive ascend easier. Expertise is interesting because you can cast Summoner for free after casting it. It alone with the lands can gives you close to 10 permanents for the city's blessing. Servos are also pretty good with Radiant Destiny if you name Servo.

Currently 5-0 with this deck on against some pretty decent decks.

In those matches, here's what I've noticed.

Mainboard: So far I didn't need board wipes in any of them. I pretty convincingly generated enough creatures to take control of the board. A turn 4 Sram's Expertise in to Servo Exhibiton or Weaponcraft Enthusiast has been amazing, or turn 5 if I have Anointed Procession in hand. I think I'm going to keep board wipes in the sideboard instead of main for now.

So far I haven't needed a sac outlet to instantly kill my opponent. I either have PLENTY of treasure to sac, or they're put in a position where they can't swing at me and either have to kill Marionette Master, or lose in 1 - 2 turns anyway. Whenever I have Hidden Stockpile out, it's usually all I need to sac all of my creatures because of Pitiless Plunderer. Sac one treasure in order to sac a creature - Get a treasure! Opponent loses 8 life. Use your new treasure to sac a creature - Get a treasure! Rinse and repeat, making Hidden Stockpile an unlimited sac outlet.

My BIGGEST concern, and it's something you seem to be concerned with too, is that I seemingly only have one wincon. I'm not sure this deck will survive a Lost Legacy targeting Master Marionette. Call for Unity could be an okay secondary wincon, but with it being only a 1 off I don't think it'd save me much. This is yet another argument for adding Yahenni, Undying Partisan or Syndicate Trafficker.

Because of my mana curve especially, I could see how cutting some of my 4-drops like Anointed Procession and Sram's Expertise down to 2 or 3 offs would help smooth that out. I also see and fear the dangers of drawing too many Treasure Map  Flip but also don't want to ruin the consistency at which I see it, because it has been doing WORK in my matches so far. Dropping to a 3 off could be reasonable.

Lands: I noticed quite a few decks playing off their graveyards, such as a cycle deck I faced, so I mainboarded 2x Scavenger Grounds and it hasn't seemed to hurt me getting the colors I need any. I considered Arch of Orazca but I'm honestly finishing people off too fast for that to matter in most of these matchups, and I've got a card draw outlet through Treasure Map  Flip anyways.

Sideboard: I agree with Big, that I could use some exile effects. Will probably go Ixalan's Binding over Cast Out since it's sideboard and not mainboard. If I thought I needed it enough to sideboard it in, I think I'll need it enough not to want to Cycle it, lol.

Conclusion / TLDR: I'm going to try to smooth out my mana curve by dropping some 4 drops to 3 offs, and try to get Yahenni, Undying Partisan mainboarded. A 1 off Call for Unity could be another solid wincon in case Marionette Master doesn't work for whatever reason, so I will try to mainboard one of them. My sideboard needs Exile effects and I'm leaning toward Ixalan's Binding. I'd also like a 2nd Battle at the Bridge.

I think you should go down 1 Anointed Procession because its a dead card when you play it, and when you have one on the field you don't really want to get multiples, just fuel for it. Then I would take out 2 Sram's Expertise. It's a very win more card, and even though its bonkers with Anointed Procession it doesn't help your Marionette Master combo as much as Yahenni, Undying Partisan does. Know about Call for Unity I see it only as a 1 off, and I would take out 1 Treasure Map  Flip. While Treasure Map  Flip is a great way to draw cards, it's slow. Only so many tokens can stop aggro decks, and it's a nightmare to draw an artifact that doesn't do anything immediately. Call for Unity doesn't do anything immediately either, but it naturally goes with your sac plan, is an enchantment so its already hard to kill, and is a separate win con on its own as it pumps all of your creatures forever right when they come out. Not to mention it helps Marionette Master deal more damage. May I also say that your sideboard could use some graveyard hate, and ways to stop gods. I would take out Gruesome Fate and Fumigate, to add in Silent Gravestone, and either Ixalan's Binding, Cast Out, or Vraska's Contempt.

love the deck. have you thought of Sram's Expertise? could be really good for your deck

That is why I had it in originally.It was a compromise I thought would be worth it. Oketra's Monument is surprisingly good when sideboarded with Champion of Dusk because champion has you lose life to the total number of vampires, so it won't instantly kill yourself, but will provide a healthy enough card advantage. Oketra obviously works beautifully with Gruesome Fate. I just started to consider making the sideboard a bit transformative into a tokenlike deck. Still the basic vampires, but maybe some token producing cards like Sram's Expertise. Thoughts?

I'm surprised at the lack of Sram's Expertise! Any reason it's been omitted?

I don't really know what I could suggest for this deck. Maybe Immolating Glare, Stasis Snare, and Sram's Expertise for a little more removal/tokens.

Definitely run 4 Anointed Procession, it's a very solid card on token generation. Have you tried to use Sram's Expertise with Inspiring Statuary? Since I don't have Mettalic Mimic, I was experimenting with a ramp on artifact tokens, casting a Settle the Wreckage with 2 servos and . Other cards that make this very budget are Renegade Map (basically a land), and with statuary, Cogworker's Puzzleknot are also a ramp, that eventually can become 4 life with Anointer Priest and Anointed Procession
