Steelshaper Apprentice Discussion

Xenephrim on Zurgo, Bringer of War

1 week ago

KALE434 Can't say I'm a big fan of O-Naginata. The power buff isn't bad but without increasing Zurgo's toughness it falls short when compared to Tenza, Godo's Maul. That's just my opinion. Sunforger isn't a bad idea. I've got one lying around, I might be able to find enough of a use for it. Mask of Memory feels like another Infiltration Lens. The draw on damage seems less useful than the card draw on block that the lens provides, given that Zurgo may very well end a game in the turn he isn't blocked.

Stoneforge Mystic would be awesome, but it's a bit too expensive for my taste. Stonehewer Giant on the other hand would fit perfectly in here. Steelshaper's Gift is really good too. I'm mixed on Steelshaper Apprentice. Four mana for a 1/3 that requires another mana to activate his ability seems a bit too costly.

I would say you need more ways to generate card advantage and more ways to get more mana.

For mana, we have Marble Diamond, Coldsteel Heart, Land Tax, Endless Horizons, Knight of the White Orchid, Gift of Estates, Solemn Simulacrum, Weathered Wayfarer, Karoo, and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.

For card advantage we have multiple ways to break that up, so starting with cards that remove multiple things.Angel of the Dire Hour, Fumigate, Comeuppance, Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Mass Calcify and Phyrexian Rebirth (if you run more mana rocks), Grasp of Fate, Return to Dust, and other board wipes of varying quality.

Now cards that give you other cards for free.Stoneforge Mystic, Stonehewer Giant, a lot of the ramp cards listed above, Nahiri, the Lithomancer, Stone Haven Outfitter, Relic Seeker, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Steelshaper Apprentice, Oreskos Explorer and Emeria Shepherd.

Here are some cards that have particular synergy with your deck, I've already listed some like Nahiri above.Masterwork of Ingenuity, Konda's Banner, Hero's Blade, Mask of Avacyn, Bonesplitter, Intangible Virtue.

Cards in particular I would cut from the deck would be:Blinding Powder, Ethereal Haze, Altar of the Brood, Darksteel Forge (when will you ever get to 9 mana?), Torpor Orb, Blight Sickle, Authority of the Consuls, Orbs of Warding, Quietus Spike (it's costly, makes you a target, and doesn't help with the Voltron plan), Ulamog (not enough mill decks in the world).

That's my $0.02.

For Better equipment i would suggest O-Naginata, Sunforger and Mask of Memory. For better equipment tutors i would say Stoneforge Mystic, Steelshaper Apprentice, Stonehewer Giant Steelshaper's Gift but ill leave that up to you! Awesome deck!

KALE434 on God sent Anya and her army to destroy

I would suggest Stoneforge Mystic, Open the Armory, Steelshaper Apprentice and Stonehewer Giant if you need more ways to search up equipment. For different equipment I would say O-Naginata and Tenza, Godo's Maul too kinda help with connecting with opponents. Also Kusari-Gama is a good one to help clear opponents boards of pesky flyers. To help with cheaper and faster equip costs Brass Squire and Leonin Shikari. Thats all for now hope those kinda help, also if you wanna check out more I'd suggest my New Phyrexia's Scourge for more ideas!

I would recommend having a few board wipes to access in dire need, Fumigate, End Hostilities, and Day of Judgment are cheaper equivalents to Wrath of God.

You have a lot of nice artifacts. But maybe a few more tutors could help get which ones you need. Relic Seeker, Steelshaper Apprentice, and Stonehewer Giant could help get what you need.

Card draw is white's biggest problem, so Puresteel Paladin and Sram, Senior Edificer.

Having too many lands sitting around could be a problem, so the cycling lands like Secluded Steppe could get rid of extra unnecessary lands.

Cathedral of War could help the Voltron esque function of your deck by buffing your Isamaru with Exalted, with Sublime Archangel and Battlegrace Angel serving this function also

I really help that this helps you with your deckbuilding.

Whip out dem tutors, doe. Enlightened Tutor Stoneforge Mystic Taj-Nar Swordsmith Stonehewer Giant Steelshaper Apprentice Steelshaper's Gift. Also consider chucking in Kemba, Kha Regent because look at dat boi!

Thanks for the deck props, Teufell!

Do only Kor have that kind of synergy? Nope! There's a lot of really fun 'tribal' decks. Most competitive are Faeries, Elves and Merfolk, but there are a lot of solid tribes. Flavorful and fun!

Synergy specifically with artifacts? Ehh, not that seem as strong in Equipment specifically. Cats, maybe... Kemba, Kha Regent, Leonin Den-Guard, Sunspear Shikari... Soldiers make a strong case... Weapons Trainer, Steelshaper Apprentice (and some of these overlap tribes)

For just artifacts, Vedalken come to mind Chief Engineer, Dispersal Technician, Etherium Sculptor, Grand Architect, Master of Etherium to name a few, but I haven't seen anything 'competitive' from a tribal standpoint... maybe I should try that... Could be a fun challenge.

Whispersilk Cloak, Enlightened Tutor, Stoneforge Mystic, Stonehewer Giant, Open the Armory, Relic Seeker, Steelshaper's Gift, Steelshaper Apprentice definitely would throw whisper in there and all of these are good choices for tutoring out your swiftfoot boots or lightning greaves what ever it is you need at the time
