Tezzeret the Schemer Discussion

Orion93 on Tezzeret Artifcat Modified

Im gonna suggest a couple small edits.

First I would make room for Metallic Rebuke. This is the best hard counter spell for your deck. You can easily tap down an artifact that you aren't using to help with the mana cost, servo schematic is the option I'm thinking of.

Second, you should increase your planeswalker count. Tezzeret the Schemer is great in this deck because he gives you artifacts and works wonderfully with most of the deck.

Third, you could probably make an interesting combo using Scrap Trawler and Resourceful Return. Just keep bringing back your creatures.

I agree that Chief of the Foundry is great but there are better options to play. Metallic Rebuke, Battle at the Bridge, Metallurgic Summonings are all great cards that play well in a tezz deck.

As far as what to drop, Chief of the foundry, maybe Merchant's Dockhand (I tried him in my deck and it didn't work well), and Implement of Examination.

The implement would be great late game but think of what you could do with 3 mana. You can play an artifact that doesn't progress your board or you can play tezzeret's touch, scrap trawler, Tezzeret's Simulacrum, Metallic Rebuke, Battle at the Bridge.... You get it. I know that the extra draw is great, especially if you use the sacrifice ability on your opponents turn, but for 4 mana you could also play Glimmer of Genius which plays much much better. Or even Anticipate which is almost as good.

Control/disruption:Disallow is amazing, and can foil just about any plan.

Wrangle: is super cheap, and incredibly fun.

Select for Inspection is good for tempo and sifting.

Harsh Scrutiny is great for early plan-twarting and sifting.

Daring Demolition: is a good killspell with no limitations.

Tidy Conclusion is another good all-purpose killer with nifty lifegain.

Shrewd Negotiation is evil beyond belief!

General good stuff:

Morbid Curiosity can prove invaluable. With those pricy improvise freatures and an abundance of artifacts, you ought to get some value out of this.

Efficient Construction: can give you an immense boardpressence.

Tezzeret the Schemer seems like an auto include ;)

Contraband Kingpin ought to do some yood.

Hope this is of any help. Do ask away if you want my oppinion on more specific matters. Stay frosty :D

Nice deck! I run a similar artifact deck with Tezzeret's Touch but it's just UB. Same idea as your deck though. Efficient removal and returning most of the artifacts that die from the graveyard. Scrap Trawler and Walking Ballista is so awesome. May I ask what the purpose of Saheeli is in the deck? She is certainly become a popular walker for the combo, but why not run Tezzeret the Schemer? I run him in my deck and he is quite strong. It's minus 2 kills almost anything with so many artifacts and the +1 is a great revolt trigger for Fatal Push. You could also consider adding some Glimmer of Genius for card draw and as a good target for your gearhulk. Great deck though and happy Brewing!

I like Reverse Engineer but Glimmer of Genius is a better card for instant play. Plus you have a chance to alter what you draw. And I would find room for Unlicensed Disintegration since it deals 3 to your opponent or their planeswalker. Also, I've been running 4 Herald of Anguish for a while. Great card but 4 seems too many. I'd consider dropping one to pick up Tezzeret the Schemer for his synergistic playability

This esper deck seems very good. I would recommend three Tezzeret the Schemer and two more Fatal Push.

The addition of blue give a New dimension to the deck... The synergy of Skyship Plunderer with the deck is amazing. Also with all the artifacts in the deck, Tezzeret the Schemer give a new winning opportunity. I was also able to fill the sideboard with Ceremonious Rejection... A must in the format.
