Also you might be interested in Tempered Steel since it gives your whole team a solid buff

Also Dispatch if you need creature removal

Hi seshiro_of_the_orochi, thank you for your feedback.

Muraganda Petroglyphs is a really good idea, i was already thinking about mixing up the 4Tempered Steel, maybe ill put in some Intangible Virtue so i can attack without consequences.

The Kuldotha Forgemaster and Darksteel Forge combo is very nice, but im afraid that runnning 4 of them whould be a little hard on the wallet, and 1 or 2 just vhouldnt do the trick.

Again, ty for the good ideas, and if anything new comes to mind, please share. :)

BlueMageBrandon on Deck choice and suggestions

2 weeks ago

My friend and I want to start going to our LGS for their Modern event but hes unsure which deck he should play. Currently, hes considering either a $50-$65 BW Tokens deck or Seths, probably better known as SaffronOlives, Ultra-Budget Tempered Steel Tokens list from a few months ago. Which do you think is the better choice?

Our current BW Tokens build

SaffronOlives Tempered Tokens

Also, Im planning on playing Seths Ultra-Budget Abzan Rites deck and was wondering whether Inquisition Or Path to Exile is more important for me to upgrade first.

Thanks for all the advice!!

Mimic Vat, Coretapper and Dross Scorpion. Not infinite, but for each three mana lets you put 3 charge counters on Darksteel Reactor.

Also, I agree with Suns_Champion, Runnign Zur seems fun. Can get stuff like Tempered Steel as well.

I ran a very similar deck, which tried to mash together Sen Trips control and Sharuum beatdown... and I couldn't really make it work (I finally just split it into Sharuum artifact/sphinx tribal and Sen Trips combo/control, since that's what they wanted to be). Acknowledging that bias, my suggestions for card to cut:

- Celestial Dawn. I get why it's in there, but you shouldn't need it with your rocks/mana base.

- Bribery. Hard to cut such a great card, but if you're willing to pay that CMC, may as well play Memnarch instead and steal something every turn.

- Sphinx Sovereign. You're not getting a ton of value out of your high-CMC sphinxes. This one least of all.

Like I said, I'm biased - I took most of these same creatures out of mine. But IMO if you're going to play this deck this creature-heavy, with Sharding Sphinx, Thopter Spy Network, Rite of Replication, etc. I say just go for it - add Tempered Steel and Darksteel Forge and push that as your win con.

If you want to play a more traditional Sen Trips control deck, drop the high-CMC sphinxes for cards like Mana Maze and Ethersworn Canonist.

Mine's not 100% current, but if you want to check it out: Artifuct. Like you, I've tried to create a version of Trips that's still fun to play against. Good luck!

Hangarback Walker seems to be a good card to put along Steel Overseer to make this deck a little faster. I also have a few copies of Tempered Steel to add a little bulk, maybe Metallurgeon to protect some of my creatures in a pinch. Those cards seem to be good if adding black, but I think i'll try some of these other moves before going that route. Thanks for the tips.

I'd suggest something else:Affinity. All about Tempered Steel and small guys really. Dredge is fun though, do what you want, mate.
