Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas Discussion

cireretals on Oathbreaker Tier List

I like the idea of this list. Its a good tool to help a play group stay on the same level. Clearly its not cut and dry, the 58 have a bigger impact, but this is a starting place. And if you don't mind talking about specific cases I'm curious as to why some cards that are clearly more powerful alone are rated lower. Not an argument or anything like that, just curious as I have not played the format extensively. Things like Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas vs Tezzeret the Schemer Agent of Bolas seems like a much stronger choice to me.

marn3us: I do think you're right; while Combustible Gearhulk was a powerful card in standard, I don't think it's good in the EDH arena. For card draw, Treasure Cruise or Dig Through Time are typically good starting points, though neither is particularly repeatable and you probably don't want to run them together, as delve can become hard to use. I think most card-draw engines don't have much of a second upside, simply because the upside of drawing cards is so good. Phyrexian Arena is a favorite of mine, though it is around $10 now. Jace Beleren is OK, especially if you can pair his +1 with a Notion Thief . You might also consider running Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas or Tezzeret, Artifice Master , though together the two would run you about $25. Staff of Nin is a permanent card for card advantage, as are Howling Mine and Dictate of Kruphix , if you don't mind helping your opponents too. I briefly looked over my first comment, but I don't think I mentioned the cantrips in it; I apologize. Ponder , Preordain and Brainstorm are all great first plays, with brainstorm becoming better with more shuffle effects (like the slow fetches). Twilight Prophet is another favorite card-draw engine of mine.

I see your reason for running the artifact lands better now. You should consider Lotus Bloom for fetching with Tezzeret, as that's an easy +3 mana, and I think Swords to Plowshares is better than Dispatch . However, the other synergies may justify leaving in the lands... practice should help there.

I also want to draw your attention to some new spoilers that just came out today. I can't believe it, but I failed to mention the original 'talisman cycle' to you before now: Talisman of Progress , Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Indulgence would all fit well in your deck. Today, it was announced that there will be enemy talismans in Modern Horizons. I intend to pick up a Talisman of Creativity, but you should consider running the talismans of Conviction and Hierarchy as well. These will make excellent 2-mana accelerants, and should end up only being $1-$2 a piece.

As always, good luck!

Also, if you're going for enabling your vehicles indirectly Karn, the Great Creator seems like a must-have. Ugin, the Ineffable also would generate a lot of value for you due to the sheer quantity of your artifacts. Also, just pointing out, Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas offers another way to enable your vehicles without a creature. Since you're only running 13 creatures, I think it is wise to add other ways to enable your vehicles since your commander may not always stick.

ThoAlmighty on So Mishra is useless in EDH eh?

The new BaB Tezzeret looks amazing here, and maybe good old Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas . I feel you could cut Mindlock Orb as it interferes with Mishra (and Stranglehold is probably better, even though its not an artifact). Silent-Blade Oni seems a bit clunky and out-of-place here.

Yeah I have definitely lost many times with other decks to an over-buffed Inkmoth Nexus lol

I will try Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas instead of Tezzeret the Schemer and see how it goes :)

If it turns out to draw too much hatred from my playgroup then I will revert back to his nerfed self lol
