Stoic Rebuttal Discussion

Continuing my advice...

Good budget cards ($3 or less each) with artifact strategies to consider adding:

Commander staples:

Can add all these cards for about $20. Can add all cards suggested in both comments for about $45.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Cataclysmic Gearhulk
  • Fumigate
  • Glassdust Hulk
  • Tezzeret's Betrayal
  • Salvaging Station
  • Treasury Thrull
  • Tezzeret, Master of Metal
  • Spinal Embrace
  • Soulscour
  • Pentavus
  • Enigma Sphinx
  • Obelisk of Esper
  • Seer's Lantern
  • Star Compass
  • Arsenal Thresher
  • Jhoira's Familiar
  • Synod Centurion
  • Tower Gargoyle
  • Death Grasp

The majority of these suggested cuts are five/six/seven drops. Cutting these can reduce the avg. CMC or your deck a lot resulting in smoother game play. If you like some of these suggestions I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

First of all +1, Love the Deck!

Second you can bracket cards, decks, or profiles to link them or draw attention to them. It gives them the blue sheen you see in so many other descriptions or comments. You place 2 brackets(the key just right of the P key) the card name or deck name or profile and then 2 reverse brackets(1 more key over). You use spaces if there are spaces in the card or deck name, but NO spaces in between the brackets and the information you are bracketing.

Example: Collected Company (Card), Thalia's Horde of Humans(Deck), Catpocolypse(Profile)

Hopefully this helps, but because of tappedout rules concerning brackets, it is a little hard to explain.

Give me a shout if it doesn't work and I'll see if I can help

With that out of the way(hopefully) lets get down to the deck. I'd suggest Tempered Steel as its basically 2 lords in 1 and it is harder to remove for boot.

I'm on the fence about Myr Superion . It is a powerful card for a lower mana cost, but I'm worried about how often you can get it out onto the field. It could end up just being dead weight in your hand because you don't have 2 mana dorks on the board. It just kinda of risky.

If Steel Overseer is a card that your deck revolves around, you could consider Hardened Scales . Personally, I don't think it will work that well because you only have 1 card that distributes +1/+1 counters, but maybe it will. What do I know?

Depending on how many artifacts you have out at any time, it might be worth to look at Dispatch instead of Path to Exile because then your opponent doesn't get the land. Stoic Rebuttal is the same thing. If you have enough artifacts, it is Counterspell incarnate.

Finally, you could look at Cranial Plating . Any 1 of your creatures could get big fast. Plus the only difference between Attach and Equip is that Attach is instant speed, whereas Equip is sorcery speed.

There are a few cards in here that seem like they could be improved... Dhund Operative seems like it's not doing anything, and Metallic Rebuke could be replaced with Stoic Rebuttal . Sphinx's Tutelage also seems like a good addition.

So I've seen the argument made that Counterspell would be unhealthy for the format because of its "strictly better" status. However, the term "strictly better" gets thrown around a little too quickly in general, or at least that's how my experience goes.

I can say with a surety that Counterspell is better than the following two-mana counterspells in modern:

- Logic Knot : This is the only one that I actually see getting overshadowed, and I understand why some people might be sad to see the good 'ol Knot put out to pasture. But, quite frankly, it's just too weak for the current meta. It requires a significant amount of resources in exchange for a one-time counter (which is absolute garbage right now, considering that the top two decks running rampant are Izzet Phoenix and Dredge, which don't care if a spell gets countered). Counterspell would be slightly less embarrassing in this situation, as you wouldn't have to delve away half your graveyard to delay Dredge for a turn.

- Mana Leak : I don't consider Mana leak to get completely shut out by Counterspell because it doesn't require double-blue. Some decks really need access to four colors, and Counterspell would be worse in this situation.

- Silumgar's Scorn : nobody plays this card.

- Wizard's Retort :Sees fringe sideboard play at best. I don't think too many would be sad to see it go.

- Stoic Rebuttal : Affinity doesn't even play this card.

- Familiar's Ruse : Would probably continue to see the same fringe play in faeries that it does already, because it picks up Spellstutter Sprite for reuse.

Declaration of Naught : nobody plays this card.

Negate : As with Logic Knot , this card is too narrow but has to be run currently because control decks only have it to work with.

In summary, the only two cards that Counterspell completely overshadows that also see consistent play are Logic Knot and Negate . I don't think that devastates the makeup of Modern.

For the good cards ... I'm not a regular Sydri pilot, but here's a penny for my thoughts on this fun commander. Tamiyo's Journal is a good beater that plops out artifacts/draw. Faerie Artisans / Thoughtcast / Thirst for Knowledge are really good for this deck, Dispatch / Stoic Rebuttal is always good for redundancy. March of the Machines is good in case your commander gets tree'd or stolen . Mechanized Production might be good for Phyrexian Metamorph / Master of Etherium /tokens from Sharding Sphinx / Smothering Tithe etc.

For the weaker cards ... Planar Cleansing could be replaced with Hour of Revelation . Profane Procession  Flip/ Predator, Flagship could go because of its overall cost, and it doesn't do anything else over time or when it enters, and it doesn't fit the themes of the deck. Revel in Riches might be good with the amount of board wipes but you'll be targeted for it, it's an upkeep trigger (so people will have time to respond, and with sorceries). Treasure Map  Flip is rather weak because it turns into a land so you can't abuse it like an artifact, and is 5 mana to eventually draw 3 or maybe 3+ cards. Treasure Mage does 'draw' and the best big artifact to abuse, but it's overall 9 mana unless you have Master Transmuter or something, and doesn't get any wincon that I can see. Ruthless Knave takes a lot of hoops to get through to draw or ramp, but a lot of my criticisms were at the treasure cards so you keep that theme then drawing more cards for no mana is good. Palladium Myr is not ramp, it's just sadness. Sphinx of the Steel Wind is expensive for a 7 turn clock on turn seven, but it's fun because it could fit your meta and is protected from the colors outside your color pie.

For win cons ... Aetherflux Reservoir / Staff of Nin / Caltrops are all all-star with this commander, and Tezzeret the Seeker could fetch caltrops/aetherflux but non paradox engine etc. If you're interested in a combo win, you could do Sword of the Meek / Thopter Foundry , or Sharuum the Hegemon / Phyrexian Metamorph and something to abuse the etb loop like Altar of the Brood / Genesis Chamber / Contraband Kingpin / Disciple of the Vault / Blood Artist / Marionette Master etc.

I used to play Sen Triplets back in the day, here is some advice that may help!

For Sen Triplets, by the looks of it, you are going for a pure control theme. The cmc curve is far too high and you can cut it out for more interaction/control package. I'm assuming this is on a budget so here might be some cards that I used to run that aren't that expensive at all.

Interaction:

Delay

Arcane Denial

Stoic Rebuttal

Oblation

Sudden Spoiling

Render Silent

Silence

Negate

Rewind

Unwind

Capsize

Dispatch

I would also up your count on low drop mana rocks, as the faster you have access to Sen, the easier you you will be able to prevent things happening to you as will as playing with your opponents hand :P

Ramp:

Talisman of Dominance

Talisman of Progress

Fellwar Stone

Mind Stone

Orzhov Signet

Commander's Sphere

Thought Vessel

Everflowing Chalice

Now moving on to the next point, how to abuse Sen Triplets? So we all know that you can use Sen Triplets to play anything, but to be less restrictive there are certain cards that synergizes with her. Here are some off the top of my head.

Synergy:

Celestial Dawn

Paradox Haze

Telepathy


Hopefully that helps, if you need any further suggestions or help refining Sen Triplets feel free to ask! She was one of my favorite decks before I dismantled her.
