Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas Discussion

Thanks for the suggestions DeRotto17 and xyr0s.

Unfortunately Nevinyrral's Disk is not modern legal.

My idea behind Worldslayer is to get out Phylactery Lich, place the phylactery counter on an indestructible artifact, and then equip Worldslayer to Phylactery Lich. I know the auras get destroyed, but I find it more beneficial to wipe the board of all potential threats and still having Phylactery Lich attack alone from there on out. Rogue's Passage helps trigger the Worldslayer effect and Darksteel Axe can be equipped to Phylactery Lich as well.

I agree Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas could go well with this deck and could probably replace Darksteel Pendant. The only reason it is not currently in here is because of money. I would like to add them eventually to see how well they do.

Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas could also go well with this deck... unlike Nevinyrral's Disk, which is not legal in modern.

Oh, and while Worldslayer can't destroy your indestructible artifacts, it does destroy the auras on them.

Hey! Another user has also expressed interest in my Tezzeret the Seeker , so is there any chance you would be OK to swap him for a Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas and you add in your Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip? Trade would look like this:

You:

So far this has won with the infinite Paradox Engine + Capsize in a three pod casual, where I was getting pretty beat up about the face with few blockers, and poof, responses to capsize buyback? Okay, rinse and repeat for all your permanents and all yours next. Cost to playing that deck? Changed out for a less built-up deck and was decimated for the previous play. It was worth it. :)

Won one with the near infinite loop dug up by all dug up by Planar Bridge, first to Darksteel Forge then Unwinding Clock then, Mycosynth Lattice + Nevinyrral's Disk, which happened right before a fatal swing in 1 v 1 edh. Not that I had a whole lot of threats, but the next thing would be Lazav, Dimir Mastermind cast and dig for Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas to animate all the indestructible artifacts. I even let this opponent know how many total turns once I was within 3 turns of going off. Of course that's when everything was already indestructible and my bridge was on the board.

So far I've only harassed people with Oona, Queen of the Fae and Hostage Taker, and really think Hostage Taker is an easier infinite loop for me to hit. Basically changed the tactics up from ramp mill/hand hate to build to one of my win cons passively, then explode and make the board hate me only after I've hit for the win. And they're scalable, so I can kill one player or multiple players at a time. Heck, if I get this monstrosity out: Unwinding Clock, Paradox Engine both out, with Mycosynth Lattice, and Leyline of Anticipation, then I'll be having fun during everyone else's turn too, with flash/instant speed getting rid of my hand or dig for a response if someone plays hand hate.

Speed in getting the mana base up and running, because until then, I'm very vulnerable to control and counterspells, and to mana rock hate. Anything not horribly expensive to get me there turn 3 or 4?

It's all cool, I just wanted to check :)

I am absolutely still interested in the lands, but I would prefer Thoughtseizes first if that's OK. All in all, from your wants, I have:

How many Thoughtseizes do you have available for trade?

Well that landbase could be much much better.

This deck has ton of cards that are not great and there are other cards that are just better.

Foresee, Painful Lesson, Sickening Dreams, Mistvein Borderpost, Failed Inspection and Dispel are all such cards, to be honest i would not play any of those.

Then what to add, well Thopter Foundry combo that i mentioned is very obvious include.

Then other cards that this deck could use, bit depending on your budget:

There are few very good artifact synergy cards, some are very pricy i know.

Good draws!

I haven't looked over the list yet, but immediately I noticed that you have no planeswalkers here. Bare minimum, put in Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas, and Tezzeret the Seeker . I'll suggest some other things later when I can.
