Tezzeret the Schemer Discussion

Ares111123 on Chandra/Bolas Control - HOU

6 days ago

Yes because if i built a bolas deck i would love to have 4 Chandra, Torch of Defiance lying around but at $25 a piece and this being the only deck i would use it in it would be difficult for me to drop $100 and still have to buy 2 Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh because I have awful pack luck when it comes to planeswalkers (now that i think of it i've been playing since 2012 core set and have only pulled a Gideon Jura from that 2012 pre-release). I figured she was mainly used to drop bolas down T5 and i figured Tezzeret the Schemer does the same thing and cost less then 1/8th of what chandra does.

Ok, I went ahead and changed out the Tezzeret the Schemer for Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas as well as dropping Myr Retriever for Tamiyo's Journal instead of Kuldotha Forgemaster since I think the journal fits better overall. In terms of cost the deck is expensive but I figure if I buy the singles I need over time and acquire the cheaper cards sooner it wont be so bad. Thank you for the advice and help!

i'd drop Glimmer of Genius, Hieroglyphic Illumination, Negate, and Magma Spray. Now i would have to test out the deck in a real game to figure out whether or not to drop 2 Chandra, Torch of Defiance and replace them with Tezzeret the Schemer. He will fix your mana problems (if you have them), creates his own artifacts to allow his -2 ability to be solid removal, his ultimate isnt too bad when you realize your getting a free 5/5 every turn, and allows you to drop bolas T5. This move will also allow cheaper players cough jason31502 cough to be able to get this deck.

To replace the 7 cards i would +1Cut, this card deals double the damage magma spray does for 1 more mana and has amazing value because of its Ribbons half. +1Combustible Gearhulk and +1The Locust God, these card provide much better card advantage than Glimmer of Genius and you get to use them to their full ability instead of having 2 E counters you cant use. Combustible Gearhulk will also allow you to save some counter spells for bigger threats instead of having to play a Disallow on a */6 creature like Honored Hydra. i would also use the other "last" and use +2Bontu's Last Reckoning in the main instead of Kefnet's Last Word in the side, this allows you to blow up any threat your opponent plays (exclude indestructible's), is 1 turn faster, and can save you against agro decks flooding the board before turn 4. For the final 2 slots i would +1Disallow and +1Abrade, all i have to say for these is disruption is better then card advantage because whats card advantage with Glimmer of Genius when you could have the cards in your hand without paying 4 mana?

I would drop the artifact aspect and drop the following cardsTezzeret's Touch, Tezzeret the Schemer, Inspiring Statuary, Servo Schematic, Metallic Rebuke, Ornithopter, Hope of Ghirapur, Reverse Engineer

Then I would add the following cardsDisallow, Glimmer of Genius, Torrential Gearhulk, Liliana, the Last Hope, Goblin Dark-Dwellers, Essence Scatter, Unlicensed Disintegration, Censor

Ive been running Esper control for a while now, and I do think Grixus is better colors to be in, let me know if you have any questions.

WarrKing I actually played the paper copy today against my friends B/W zombies deck and his modern blood artist brew, beat them both several times. It's very consistent and the artifact recursion is very helpful. Also, Tezzeret the Schemer is great removal in this.Efficient Construction was good for this too, especially with Westvale Abbey

Hey, mande, Zeptideo, and luther, thanks a lot for your suggestions! Unfortunately I've been suuuper busy this week and haven't been able to update this deck as much as I want, I will add more mana generating/fixing cards such as Grave Upheaval, probably Tezzeret the Schemer and maybe one or two more lands, also probably thrax and Crosis's Charm but I've been struggling with identifying what needs to be cut. Since some cards are not even out yet it is a bit difficult to test the deck out so any suggestions for cards to drop would be very appreciated (@mande I will be replacing Breaking/Entering, thanks for that suggestion)!

Your mana base seems fine. You have decent mana rocks for what you currently have in deck. Have you considered Tezzeret the Seeker , Tezzeret the Schemer, Tezzeret, Master of Metal, or Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas? It works flavor wise, but I may suggest adding a few more mana rocks if you do. Also, since I see you like bolas, how about Leonin Bola? Lol

WarrKing the enchantment is included in the deck because it produces extra blockers/attackers Everytime you cast an artifact spell. On Magic: Duels I've managed to close out the game several times with the additional thopters. Additionally, they're fuel for Herald of Anguish both for improvise and draining creatures as well as fuel for Battle at the Bridge. Thanks to the thopters produced I managed to give an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger -10/-10 and gained 10 life after it exiled my Tezzeret the Schemer and a Mana source. Although against more controlling matchups I switch it out for Torrential Gearhulk
