2 copies of Tezzeret, Master of Metal would allow you to get him more often.

Tezzeret, Master of Metal and Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas are good if you can protect them. Weatherlight, Skysovereign, Consul Flagship and Metalwork Colossus are good in an artifact deck. Replace Pilgrim's Eye and Snare Thopter with Time Sieve and Thopter Assembly for infinite turns at an upkeep cost of .

Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas is pretty good, I'm thinking of adding him to my artifact deck. I actually use both Tezzeret the Seeker and Tezzeret, Master of Metal, using Tezzeret's Betrayal as a handy kill spell and way to get out a planeswalker.

Hmm LVL_666, I never thought about storage lands, that's a really good idea. I won't cut down to 33 lands though because A) through play testing I've found 36 is a nice consistent number. And B) I seriously have the worst luck with lands.

They may try to make the Planeswalkers in Planeswalker decks "unplayable" but that doesn't always work, just look at the Ajani from M19, the Planeswalker deck Planeswalker is definitely better. Tezzeret, Master of Metal is a Planeswalker deck card, and his ult is amazing (the plus is nice to since it can help me find Rings and The Chain Veil). I personally like Mu Yanling, she can make Atraxa unblockable if it has to come with that and can draw me cards (if I'm desperate). Also, that ult is like my dream ult "Tap all creatures your opponents control and take an extra turn". That tap ability is nice, but it's the extra turn I'm after (like Teferi, Timebender, another Planeswalker deck Planeswalker in this deck).

Huh, thought As Foretold was in here, I must have cut it for some stupid reason. I've been thinking about Aminatou, the Fateshifter for blink, but one Ive been thinking about putting in is Estrid, the Masked. Her minus is nice since it allows my to protect my Planeswalkers to a certain degree.

Thanks for the suggestions! Feel free to leave more if you feel like it.

-1 Tezzeret, Master of Metal

-2 Tempered Steel

-2 Plains, -2 Island, -2 Swamp

-2 Chromatic Lantern

and now, the additions:

+5 Wastes

+1 Elixir of Immortality

+1 Karn Liberated

+1 Eldrazi Monument

+2 Palladium Myr

+1 Conduit of Ruin



and Vesuva to maybeboard (mainly because I don't have any yet)

Very solid reasoning there. I'll probably make the following swaps then:

-1 Tezzeret, Master of Metal

-1 Disrupt Decorum

-1 Mountain

-1 Island or Swamp

+1 Jaya Ballard

+1 Dack Fayden

+1 Darksteel Citadel

+1 Boseiju, Who Shelters All (I can't believe I forgot about this, it's so important to my big sorceries)

I too was looking at which Tezzeret to cut. In doing so I was looking at your artifact count. You have 11 (under the default "artifact section"), + 2 creatures, + 3 lands (the esper artifact lands) for a total of 16 artifacts. You could cut a basic mountain to add a Darksteel Citadel. Your land base is quite solid and I think you've done a great job at optimization. You only have 2 colorless producing lands, which means that if you add a third one you'd still be well within an acceptable threshold for colorless lands in a 3 color deck. It will up your artifact count even further and (although usually not relevant), it will protect against land destruction. I recomend dropping the basic mountain because, aside from Back to Basics (a card usually unseen outside of cedh), you'll generally only be up against Blood Moon or Ruination and mountains aren't that important (if at all) against those over other basic land types. With Blood Moon on the field, all you get are mountains anyway!

But on to the Tezzeret question... I think you should cut Tezzeret, Master of Metal and keep Tezzeret the Seeker .

Master of Metal

  • 1.) Costs more mana
  • 2.) Requires more colors
  • 3.) His + and - care greatly about total number of artifacts (and thus total number in the deck). His + will have you digging through large portions of your deck without lots of artifacts and his - won't do a lot of damage unless you have a ton of artifacts currently on the field.
  • 4.) His ult, while good, shouldn't be considered as a primary factor for running him. Additionally Dack Fayden does a partial, minor version of his ult for merely a -.
  • Tezzeret the Seeker

  • 1.) cheaper to cast in terms of color and cmc
  • 2.) his + can act as ramp and a substanial amount of the artifacts you run (including lands) can be tapped for mana
  • 3.) his - searches for a card which is great because it doesn't rely on having an artifact heavy deck.
  • 4.) his ult (while not as powerful as master of metal's) can easily be achieved in most games and that makes it better than it looks
  • 5.) His + and - don't care about total artifacts in deck or on field.
  • To me, the only real point of running Master of Metal is his ult, which won't happen in most games. Additionally, adding Dack Fayden gives you access to a lesser version of that ult that you can get off in 100% of games where he resolves and isn't countered.

    After careful consideration and a good few test runs, I’ve found that running Tezzeret, Master of Metal and Tezzeret's Betrayal help us find the shards and the pieces to win the game. This game plan works best with a control base for the deck but definitely has a place with a more aggressive strategy too, just as long as you have enough ramp from shards on board.
