Sword of the Meek Discussion

Gidgetimer on What is your favorite combo ...

Is all of them an acceptable answer? Because I have never met a 3 or less card combo I didn't love. I even love some Rube Goldberg-esque combos that have silly amounts of moving pieces. If I have to name some specifically:

Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond

Ashnod's Altar + Sword of the Meek + Thopter Foundry

Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons + Blowfly Infestation + Blood Artist

Oh, that's a cool interaction. Aether Spellbomb would additionally allow board control, and those combined with Nihil Spellbomb would allow me to draw way too many cards. Mishra's Bauble, but 12 copies that also do other things, even if they cost a little more. Also beats T3feri.

Thopter Foundry and Sword of the Meek would be fun too.

Pyrite Spellbomb could be nice but I'd rather have flat bounce from Aether. Course, I do have a lot of the fixing for splash already, so I might consider tacking Red in for additional effective removal, including Pyroclasm and Galvanic Blast.

Hi, I need a rules information. Something I haven't found searching the net. If I have Alela, Artful Provocateur in play, does the classic Thopter Foundry + Sword of the Meek works? We sacrifice the Sword to the Foundry and a Thopter enters in play. It's a 1/1 Thopter, but with Alela bonus. Does the Sword come back to the battlefield? Thank you!

CloseTalker, thanks so much for the suggestions. I keep going back and forth on Chief Engineer, on the one hand, more cost reduction for storming off, and on the other hand, there is already alot of cost reduction in the deck.

Not certain Panharmonicon is right for me in this deck. But that may just be me underestimating it.

Urza is too expensive for my liking, but maybe something I go with in future upgrades.

I have been looking into Memnarch :)

I'm not sure Sword of the Meek would work with Alela out because if the +1/0 she grants and I will rarely have her off the field to utilize it.

And I like the meth-tweaker commitment comment. I'm taking it as a compliment lol. And it has now become apart of my vocabulary, so thank you for that. I'm hoping to pick up the remaining pieces I need to have the deck look as you see it here, but I got sidetracked upgrading and tweaking my Syr Gwyn deck.

I thought of a few suggestions for your already impressive build, although I'm not exactly sure what you're looking for. I can see combos/win-cons all throughout your build. The thought and planning you put into developing it is meth-tweaker commitment lol

A few things that might give you some ideas... Sword of the Meek to help with your thopter + ashnods infinite mana combo. Paradox Engine although I heard it might be banned. Last suggestion, for now, is you might want to throw Urza, Lord High Artificer or even a Memnarch in there is a win-con on its own with infinite mana..I had more suggestions but Im hungry. Peace, good luck

Magnanimous on Fact or Fiction deck Idea ...

The benefit of Fact or Fiction is that you don't need to mess around to make it good, just play it when you need some cards. It is not a graveyard filler and you should not think of it as such, it helps GY synergies but that should always be a bonus and not the reason you play it.

I'd play it in a BUG deck similar to the Legacy BUG decks that plays Nimble Mongoose, Tarmogoyf, counters, and the amazing BG removal suite with Fact or Fiction as top-end to search for silver bullets and feed light graveyard synergies.

I do think storm may like it, but then again Gifts Ungiven + Past in Flames is a match made in heaven.

Your Sword of the Meek idea is really cool. I do think it could vastly improve the Thopter/Sword deck and that would be another good starting point.

Intended for Modern/Casual FNM (not too competitive playgroup)

With Modern Horizons Legalizing Fact or Fiction I have been trying to build around it and Im having trouble.

Im currently brewing in Mono- Artifacts with Buried Ruin/Academy Ruins for accessing the graveyard.... mainly because I dont have any Snapcaster Mage.

Sword of the Meek with Myrs like Myr Retriever seem kinda neat with Thirst for Knowledge in the mix... also have been tinkering with Throne of Empires + Scepter of Empires + Crown of Empires.

Another direction ive looked into was with Skaab Ruinator/Misthollow Griffin with Laboratory Maniac.


Can anyone give me a decklist/shell and or other ideas for using FoF without Snapcaster Mage... I seem to be stuck.

Why aren't you running Time Sieve? It goes infinite with Thopter Assembly or Thopter Foundry/Sword of the Meek.
