Trinket Mage Discussion

TheSurgeon on Altar: Heartless Duskcrank (now with Primer)

3 days ago

Sorry for the delayed response guys! Work has been keeping me very busy.

Felixlives- Thank you, and absolutely it kills at once! Last night I had a 3-player game against my friend's rather formidable burn deck Ring of Fire and a legacy Eldrazi-Tron. I stalled out at first, drawing nothing but 2 land, 1 Altar, Palace Familiar, Trinket Mage), Mindcrank but ended up winning with an Altar and Mindcrank in play and paid Guildmage's 1st ability as it ETB turn 6. It was pretty satisfying. XD

Naksu- Kind words, thank you. Keeps me going!

Cool theme - very flavorful!

Maybe test with Metallurgic Summonings, Revel in Riches, Brass's Bounty, and Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast for an artifact win-con? Trinket Mage and Trophy Mage? Whir of Invention? Myr Battlesphere and Vedalken Shackles?

I suspect you need more artifacts for your Tezzerets, regardless. Maybe consider some swords (like Sword of Fire and Ice) and equipments like Umezawa's Jitte?

Have fun!

CheeseTheGunslinger on Blue Tron Scrimage

Pheardemons he's legal as of the 19th and he's one of the best control cards in the game!! Probably a cheap may for them to sell the next set Masters 25. Other more experienced blue Tron sources have said a 2 blue sorc speed is no good for this deck but I think if you can put him in play with a third blue to protect him he would win more games than Gemstone Caverns would. So I'll try going to 9 blue sources and 2 Field of Ruin as basics fetching plus Talisman of Dominance to fix my Mana. I'll even drop the Trinket Mage for a Fabricate so I can fetch the Talisman of Dominance or my Oblivion Stone. Like you said tho, it'll take some play testing.

Swiftfoot Boots is another good equipment.

All of the cycling lands and the mirage fetches are good: Flood Plain, Bad River, Irrigated Farmland, and Fetid Pools.

Trinket Mage fetches for 1 or less so Ancient Den an Vault of Whispers are a goo include, and Welding Jar might not be bad either. Also it could fetch a Phyrexian Dreadnought to combo with a Torpor Orb, Nimble Obstructionist, or Stifle.

Necropotence is an insane card draw engine.

Absorb, Counterspell, Cryptic Command, Daze and Undermine are all better than Cancel or Spell Shrivel. Countersquall might be worth a thought as well.

Some mana rocks that could help are: Commander's Sphere and all of the signets (Azorius Signet, Dimir Signet and Orzhov Signet). Fellwar Stone also helps with fixing for your opponent's mana.

Also some prime removal spells/boardwipes are:Anguished Unmaking, Utter End, Vindicate, Merciless Eviction, and Supreme Verdict.

And finally Sorin Markov would make a great planeswalker.

Droodkills on The Locust God AltarClamp Combo

+1 for the deck, I like how tuned it feels.

I've always been a fan of Dizzy Spell. It acts kinda like an uncounterable Trinket Mage without the body, and if you want to go super-deep into tutors, you could run Trophy Mage. Tezzeret the Seeker can also fill a lot of roles in this deck. Also, I don't know how counterspell-heavy your meta is, but it seems pretty cutthroat, and your commander seems vital to the strategy. If you can fit in Cavern of Souls despite the color concerns just for your commander, it might be worth it. Lastly, I have grown quite fond of Power Sink. In a situation where multiple players don't want to pull the trigger on casting a relevant spell, if someone does go for some kind of move, Power Sink can open the gates for you to cast your spells with slightly more than no worries, although maybe it will be less effective here with all the 'doesn't untap' artifacts.

Cool to see this commander get some love; it is my favorite design of the three grixis gods, and it is the only one I don't see any play from in standard lol.

It really depends on your deck building philosophy. What is undeniable is that a creature based strategy is a bad method in winning a game, because people can easily come back with cards with Vandalblast. In addition, creature based strategies aren't that strong when you are using artifacts.

A couple of ways to play Sen Triplets as a central part of your deck is to either use sen triplets as hand disruption, or using sen triplets to deck your opponent by playing their entire deck.

It was a lie when people told you that combo pieces will close out games. This is the only way to consistently win games.

The weakest parts of your deck is your creatures, all of your equipment except Skullclamp, all of your planeswalkers expect Tezzeret the Seeker , all of your enchantments except Rhystic Study.

Some of the cards your deck is missing is, all of the possible signets, all of the possible talismans. These are mana rocks which are very strong and every deck needs them. This deck needs to have more ramp than everyone else and Sen Triplets needs to hit the battlefield as fast as possible like on turn 3. So you also need to be running all of the possible ritual effects, like Dark Ritual.

Then to make sen triplets a strong card you need:

Mana rocks: Basalt Monolith Mana Vault Lotus Petal Vedalken Engineer Crystal Vein MindStone

Wheel effects like: Windfall or Jace's Archivist or even Temple Bell

Good combo pieces: Paradox Engine

Things to look at players hands: Telepathy (this is the greatest hate magnet card ever) Gitaxian Probe

Protection for Sen Triplets: Lightning Greaves

Hate cards: Notion Thief Teferi's Puzzle Box Blind Obedience

Bounce cards: Wash Out Baral's Expertise

Tutor cards: Trophy Mage Trinket Mage Fabricate Lim-Dul's Vault

Removal and Interaction:

Draw: Brainstorm Ponder Preordain Opt Thoughtcast

Mana reduction:Etherium Sculptor Semblance Anvil

Strong cards: Prophetic Prism Krark-Clan Ironworks Chromatic Sphere Chromatic Star

You don't have to do this, this was basically my plan for my sen triplet's deck. Basically just ramp super hard and then play sen triplets and then cast someone's entire hand. For deck is filled with very strong creatures but creatures in EDH are very weak.

Pheardemons I like that card, I haven't seen it before. I think here I would keep Summary Dismissal for matches against Storm and the absurd amount of Eldrazis in my local meta. Nothing more satisfying than a smug opponent attempting to cast Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and watching it go bye bye, haha.

As for the Walking Ballista it has it's uses and I find it much better with a Trinket Mage in the deck but it's one of the first things to get sided out in a lot of match ups.

Thanks for your suggestion. I may pick up a play set of Mindbreak Trap for testing purposes.

Love the combo! Gonna echo some thoughts here.

Razaketh's Rite, Demonic Collusion, Drift of Phantasms, Mastermind's Acquisition(Triton), Trinket Mage, Vedalken AEthermage, Dizzy Spell, Ethereal Usher, Netherborn Phalanx, Perplex are all a bunch of budget tutors you could consider. Many can do other things too which is nice.

Swan Song, Negate, Perplex, Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots may be a good start to a protection package for the combo.

Necrotic Ooze can act as a copy of the sphinx or Apostle if one of them is in the 'yard.

Also going to second cdkime. Thrumming Stone and a few big demons will serve as a good backup plan.

Hope some of this helps ya!
