Steel Hellkite Discussion

ManiacalPotato on Night of the Living Robots

19 hours ago

Why would I want protection from sacrificing, other than for All Is Dust? It's pretty advantageous to sac the tokens I make with Feldon through Ashnod's Altar, Krark-Clan Ironworks etc, so I couldn't even use it as a stat boost.

I'll swap out Chain Reaction for Blasphemous Act

I personally prefer Goblin Welder's reduced cost and ability to be replayed with Feldon over Trash for Treasure's speed. I can see a lot of situations where Scrap Mastery would be a dead card in my hand, although it would make a nice sideboard counter for board clears.

I considered Metalwork Colossus, Inferno Titan and Steel Hellkite. I decided that the foremost didn't do enough as a big graveyard body to be useful, and I don't really have enough mana generally to make use of the latter two. I also had Scuttling Doom Engine in this deck for a while, but I decided that I have enough aggro and need more board control.

Ancient Stone Idol would make a great addition but I can't decide what to swap it out for, any suggestions?

p.s. oh shoot you're right he's banned I will escort him off the premises

CaptSillva on Night of the Living Robots

You could seriously consider running Assault Suit. It makes it so the equipped creature can't be sacrificed, even by your own effects.

Other utility cards you could consider Trash for Treasure, Scrap Mastery, and Blasphemous Act.

Other fatties you should think about Ancient Stone Idol, Metalwork Colossus, Inferno Titan, Steel Hellkite, and Scuttling Doom Engine.

Side note, Sundering Titan is banned in Commander. It is considered far too oppressive to multicolored decks.

Heliogabale on Neheb the Manataur

Cool burn deck!

Here are a few ideas.

Cards I would take out : Acidic Soil, Faithless Looting, Smash, Fall of the Titans Bitter Feud, Endless One, Shivan Dragon

Cards I would add : Jaya Ballard, Insurrection, Scourge of the Throne, Browbeat, Past in Flames, Vandalblast, Steel Hellkite

Hope this helps!

I love my dragon deck too. I've had a lot of success with Sarkhan's Unsealing since the creature spell doesn't have to resolve for the effect to take place. I might try running it instead of Wasitora, Nekoru Queen or Steel Hellkite

kamarupa on Puresteel Powerhouse

given the number of 0-Drop equipment you're running, I think a full set of Dispatch is well worth it.

a few lands to consider: 1xSejiri Steppe, 1xScavenger Grounds, 2xBuried Ruin

a few artifacts to consider; Elixir of Immortality, Pithing Needle, Ratchet Bomb, Paradise Mantle, Springleaf Drum, Steel Hellkite.

a few utility spells worth considering: Oblivion Ring, Journey to Nowhere, Cast Out, Seal Away.

I agree with Pat with all of these, the only maybe isGeode Golem, which I like in my Bosh deck, but with Saheeli being only 6 mana it might not be worth it.

I would sawp Gauntlet of Power for Caged Sun (would save you about $11) I have never been impressed with Blinkmoth Urn, even in artifact decks. You would be surprised how much it can help your opponents, especially if you need tap out to to play it.

I personally would cut: Damping Engine Mycosynth Lattice (ruinning that and vandalblast is pretty rough) Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain, both of your Essence Scatter Memnarch Steel Hellkite Spell Shrivel Whir of Invention

I would try to make room for Pilgrim's Eye

DragonKing90 on Budget Tron

1 month ago

i'm looking to build a budget Gx tron deck. unfortunately i cannot afford karns, ugins, and wurmcoils. heres the deck so far.

Budget Tron

Modern DragonKing90


I would like suggestions on a good secondary color, as well as sideboard options. so far the secondary color is red because Banefire seems good in a deck that can easily get X to 5+. it also gives me access to By Force which would help immensely against Hardened Modular.

I'm pretty familiar with who the good players at my LGS are, and what decks they have been using. so my main concerns are the following decks.

  1. Tron mirror: there are at least 3 tron players who frequent FNM. unlike me, they are able to afford karns, ugins, and wurmcoils.

  2. Jund: a buddy of mine assures me Tron is favored in this matchup. but i still want to be prepared, for several reasons. A) i'm running a budget build. B) Assassin's Trophy can destroy lands when it gets released. C) the jund player knows full well the tron players will show up. he knows them personally. if Tron is truly favored in this matchup, i figure he's coming prepared. D) i don't particularly like the guy. he tried to make fun of my current modern deck, which is 5C Sliver Company. on the bright side though, i went 3-1 that night and won some boosters.

  3. Goblins: this guys deck is about as fast and competitive as i imagine goblins can be. minus the fact he doesnt use Throne of the God-Pharaoh like i would. its great in "go wide" decks. i have some mainboard threats that could potentially serve as answers here, but i have to live long enough to use them. Steel Hellkite can destroy all his tokens at once for 0 mana, but thats a turn 4 play at best meaning i'd better hope i go first. Myr Battlesphere can give some blockers. this matchup is what made me consider Spatial Contortion for the sideboard. it can remove any goblin, or pump up a Reality Smasher to swing for 8 on turn 3.

  4. Hardened Modular: same friend that said Tron is favored against Jund, said Goblins and Hardened Modular might be difficult. obviously i should already be packing artifact removal since almost any opponent can drop a Damping Sphere against me, but single-target removal may not be enough here.

any suggestions are appreciated. if you think i should add something, please also suggest what i should cut. i am more than happy to give feedback and advice in return, on any modern format decks. that is the format i am most familiar with.

DrukenReaps on A More Destructive Mairsil

1 month ago

Hellos peeps!

I've got 3 cards coming in the mail for my Should I Pretend This Or That? Mairsil, the Pretender deck. They are Steel Hellkite, Diaochan, Artful Beauty, and Jaya Ballard, Task Mage. I think these could be amongst the better additions for removal that I've made to the deck but I've got no idea what to pull out to make room and could use suggestions for cuts.

Any help is appreciated! Other thoughts are welcome too. Thanks.
