Toolcraft Exemplar Discussion

I've done a swap of the number of Glorybringer and Verdurous Gearhulk. 4x Glorybringer gives me better odds to draw it and get it into play turn four or five. I've also increased the number of Mountain to 3x cutting 1x Forest to make room. Glorybringer is double red so having another red source that doesn't come into play tapped really helps.

The difference between the Dragon and Gearhulk is the Dragon's haste. Creature removal is good right now and I get more value faster out of the Dragon than Gearhulk. I've also found the Dragon to be much better than Gearhulk in both Mardu Vehicles and Zombie matchups, especially Mardu as a great way to deal with Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. Gearhulk is also an artifact, the Dragon isn't, which is relevant.

I was sideboarding a third Glorybringer, but I don't need to do that anymore, I cut it for a third Manglehorn. I like Manglehorn in both Marvel and Mardu Vehicles matchups, especially Mardu because it can kill Heart of Kiran and slow down Scrapheap Scrounger.

This is not true. There are at least 5 playable standard decks to chose from, and one of them (Mardu Vehicles) is heavily white based. If you really want to use those white bricks, build yourself an unbeatable curve of white threats like Toolcraft Exemplar, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and Archangel Avacyn  Flip.

Toolcraft Exemplar would be great here!!! I don't think you necessarily need Marionette master here you are more than capable of winning without her and she has an expensive cost without improvise...Also maybe Scrap Trawler, it works well with Trafficker. Hope of Ghirapur!

I know of a turn 3 win in STD but you dont have any of the cards in your list.

T1: Toolcraft Exemplar

T2: Bomat Courier, another Toolcraft, swing 4

T3: Toolcraft, Reckless Bushwhacker, swing 16

Super hard to pull off, but it still works!

Hidden Stockpile Is a must in any servo deck. It's looks really solid, but you might need a curve filler like Thraben Inspector or Toolcraft Exemplar. Too much early aggro going around to not have that 1 drop.

Randomguy006, I used to run the mimics but recently switched to a one drop with Toolcraft Exemplar. I seem to be more successful with early damage and more servos (added Anointed Procession) vs stronger servos. Mimic also had a bit of a target on its head and was a focus for removal, often negating its potential. I might head back to them and compare a bit more.

Hiya, this deck looks pretty sweet, and indeed quite similar to mine, but there's a few things I have questions about.

  1. How has Collective Brutality been for you? I quite like it in aggro decks, but I found it mediocre when I tried it in my rakdos control, as I didn't often want to pitch many cards from my hand, even if each one would 1 for 1 with my opponent. I'd rather just have a Grasp of Darkness most of the time.

  2. Why Violent Impact over Release the Gremlins? Release can't cycle, but it comes down a turn earlier, and can just be a mediocre body if you have nothing else to play. Release can also scale vs decks like Vehicles, and take out something random like a clue.

  3. Finally, how good has Noxious Gearhulk been? I've tried testing it, but found it pretty mediocre, Occasionally it would get something meaty like another gearhulk, but normally if I top decked it lategame I had already been clearing the board, and just needed it to get some damage in, or to kill something random like a Toolcraft Exemplar or Thalia, Heretic Cathar, netting me only a few points of life. Eventually, I decided to get rid of them for more Glorybringers. While Glorybringer doesn't get you any life, he can preform removal whenever he attacks, not just as soon as he enters the battlefield. Haste and Flying also makes him a little better at getting in damage.

Deck looks nice though. +1
