Traxos, Scourge of Kroog

Trample

Traxos, Scourge of Kroog enters the battlefield tapped and doesn't untap during your untap step.

When you cast a historic spell, untap Traxos. (Artifacts, legendaries, and Sagas are historic.)

Traxos, Scourge of Kroog Discussion

I don't think Traxos, Scourge of Kroog fits very will in the deck personally, not to much you can do to abuse him and he is pretty Meh overall.

For the Lore, having Traxos, Scourge of Kroog in here would be good, plus you're casting lots of artifacts, which helps.

Can I ask, how do you plan on getting value from Mishra, when, because of the nature of commander, no two cards have the same name?

Ok, you deck is alright and has a lot of potential but it looks to be going in a lot of different directions. What I think would help is if you pick which cards you are wanting to build around.

Tezzeret's Touch is a great card but it is the type of enchantment where if you want to run it you have to build the entire deck around. A deck I have made around this card has a heap of cheap evasive artifact creatures like Ornithopter , Vault Skirge and Signal Pest ; and a heap of cards with the same effect like Ensoul Artifact and Skilled Animator .

Another card you might build around is Traxos, Scourge of Kroog . His down side is he only untaps when you cast an artifact. There are a lot of zero costing artifacts that you could cast which would make this easier such as the Ornithopters but there is also Cathar's Shield and Accorder's Shield which would give Traxos vigilance so he doesn't tap when he attacks. But once that happens any of the equipment cards that you draw afterwards won't be doing anything. That is where you could have something like Sai, Master Thopterist who will make a thopter token when you cast an artifact.

If want to be a bit more mid range with Chief of the Foundry buffing your team. Some good cards that go well with that are Foundry Inspector and Etherium Sculptor which make artifacts cheaper to cast. Which would make it easier to cast something big like Myr Battlesphere . Generally the Myrs are pretty good and you might want to check them out on gatherer.

Another thing you might consider is cutting one of your colours for white. With the midrange go wide artifact strategy it might be worth considering white just for the sake of Tempered Steel , but that might be something to consider further down the track.

Also Padeem, Consul of Innovation is good.

If I may make a point. Traxos, Scourge of Kroog and Shimmer Myr would be exceptional in any Urza deck.

It seems like this deck may benefit from some historic tribal cards, like Jhoira's Familiar , Traxos, Scourge of Kroog , the Weatherlight , and Thran Temporal Gateway .

Also, it seems like you should really run Time of Need and Arvad the Cursed to make use of the legendary tribal too. Nice deck overall, +1!

I've been having a lot of fun with him! He's really powerful once he gets going. Mishra's Self-Replicator and Sai, Master Thopterist make him amazing. I think Hostage Taker is a great idea! I could exile an artifact or creature for two mana (as long as Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge is out). I think I'll also put in Tetzimoc, Primal Death for more creature based removal.

That's a good point about One with the Machine . So far, I've cast it for 5 with Gilded Lotus and 4 with Traxos, Scourge of Kroog , and the third time I kept it in my hand because I didn't have a good artifact on the field. I might swap it out for Jace, Ingenious Mind-Mage .

I'm still experimenting with it. Let me know if you decide to build it! I think focusing on creatures, artifacts, and planeswalkers is the way to go because of Tezzeret's affinity.

Cheers!

Almost the same as my deck but I use:

Karn's Bastion -> Evolving Wilds
Evolving mills your deck and helps cast the enchantments

Ugin, the Ineffable -> Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge
Tezzeret is just way better

Meteor Golem -> Karn, Scion of Urza
Meteor Golem is too expensive mana wise

Iron Bully -> Silent Submersible
Don't know why you would use Iron Bully, he's so useless

Added a 2nd Traxos, Scourge of Kroog
I use Karn as well so more hystorics, he's just op

Added 3x Zahid, Djinn of the Lamp
5/6 flying for 4 cost, what's not to like?

Dropped Kaya's Ghostform
In my experience each time I try to cast this my creature / planeswalker dies before it applies or it just never dies...

Experimenting with Spark Double and Yawgmoth's Vile Offering and trying to main deck 4x Thought Erasure

Sideboard:

Ugin, the Ineffable -> Phyrexian Scriptures
Helps a lot vs rush decks and creature spam decks

Experimenting with Chaos Wand
Extreme card advantage vs slow decks / control decks
