Tezzeret's Gambit Discussion

hungry000 on Magistrate's Sceptor

21 hours ago

I can tell you play more standard than modern or just started playing recently from your card choices; if you're building the deck around Magistrate's Scepter, it'll be a lot better to focus on that part of the plan rather than make a hybrid +1/+1 counter stompy deck that also kind of works with the Scepter like what you have now. I suggest you drop all the Glint-Sleeve Siphoners, Jadelight Rangers, Merfolk Branchwalkers, Rishkars, Adventurous Impulses, Diabolic Tutor, Mastermind's Acquisition, Sorcerer's Wand, and Animation Modules, as they aren't necessary for the main plan (the Animation Modules are okay but they're not great).

Instead, it would be much faster and more consistent if you played some cards that can add charge counters to artifacts, such as Coretapper and Surge Node. They work well with Voltaic Servant, and you could also play some proliferate cards like Throne of Geth (which also works well with Voltaic Servant). Tezzeret's Gambit can proliferate and help find gas, and Ancient Stirrings fits perfectly in this deck since it can find Coretappers and Magistrate's Scepter. I think a more artifact-based deck is the way to go with this deck, the core of it would look something like this:

4 Magistrate's Scepter 4 Coretapper 4 Surge Node 3-4 Voltaic Servant 3-4 Voltaic Key

4 Ancient Stirrings 3 Tezzeret's Gambit

20ish lands (I don't really think you need Aether Hub but you could play it)

The rest of the deck you should fill out with combo protection, like 1-mana discard spells, maybe a couple Spellskite, etc. You could also consider going into Sultai or UG for the counterspells.

FullmetalWes on Quest for Ula's Temple

I recommend running more creatures, 18 doesn't seem like enough to me although I know that's what scrying helps with. A strategy I really love with Quest for Ula's Temple is proliferate, my number one choice for that is Thrummingbird since it adds more counters to Ula's Temple, it's a creature and makes a good mid-late game chump blocker. Tezzeret's Gambit or Contagion Clasp are other possibilities if you want more proliferate.

I'd rather run things like Mana Leak, Rune Snag or Remand over Dissolve but that's up to you, I know the point was to scry. I've always liked Condescend though.

I look forward to playing against it!

SynergyBuild on Moden Prosperity Bloom?

Paradox Engine lists with Temple Bell and Otherworld Atlas end up being a similar deck too. Everflowing Chalice, Astral Cornucopia, Surge Node, Coretapper, Tezzeret's Gambit, and with lands a full set of Inventors' Fair, Darksteel Citadel for the ones that use Mox Opal, the occasional Buried Ruin and Academy Ruins, and blue sources.

Then there are variants with Reshape and Lotus Bloom, Whir of Invention is in some, Mind Stone/Hedron Archive in others. Even some Voltaic Key's that I have seen.

First I have to say, that I love your deck. Really nice!

I play a Exper Flicker deck and The Mirari Conjecture is really good. Than I saw that you don't play any sorceries. So maybe not in your deck ^^

Tezzeret's Gambit is a really good card. So I would try to fit it in.

I've run Tezzeret's Gambit in similar lists. Have you looked at splashing red or blue instead of white?

Red gets you Vexing Devil and Devastating Summons alongside haste enablers. Blue gets you Cloudfin Raptor and Pongify alongside the usual blue stuff.

With a fetch base you can even start looking at even wilder cards- Bloodhall Ooze and Slitherhead, Thought Gorger and more. Just depends on where you want to look for synergies- +1 counters have been printed on a lot of good cards over the years.

You given some thought to Curse of Stalked Prey and Tezzeret's Gambit? I feel like rabblemaster/warboss/Goblin Assault/Lightning Coils and a ton of rituals might work really well there.
