Untethered Express Discussion

Argy,
I was thinking about possible 3-drops (just to smooth the curve a little) and was wondering if you've looked at Fell Flagship yet. I think it's worse on an empty board than Untethered Express (since Siren Stormtamer can't Crew it alone) but it seems like it'd be very good (on both offense and defense) in every other case. Not sure if it's better than Crazy Train though ... may come down to how often you almost win via Pirate damage/just barely lose to opposing Creature damage vs. how often Train runs away with the game.

Hilarious flavor deck Gruul dinos + Untethered Express

Theme: Domri Rade has been following Jace around cause reasons and stole the Express filled it up with dinos and is now managing to pilot it through Ixalan so he can destroy the city of gold for kicks and giggles.

Argy,
I'm not sure you even need the Arcane Adaptation, since Herald of Secret Streams works for all "Creatures you control ...".

Walking Ballista, Verdurous Gearhulk, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, and Bristling Hydra just got better too ...

Also interesting is how very much the Untethered Express now looks like a Dinosaur ...

OK, here's whatcha do.

Play Arcane Adaptation and choose "Merfolk".

Play Herald of Secret Streams.

Play Untethered Express.

Use the Merfolk to Crew the Express

Choo chooooo!! Unblockable Express!!!

I guess it's more of a rhino than Triceratops but Triceratrain just rolls off the tongue.

Argy,
Well sure, but Flagship was a Mythic. Battleship seems pretty solid as an Uncommon. Though I don't expect it will be nearly as good in Limited as Untethered Express was ...

Of course, Battleship would look better than all of them on a playmat :-)

magikarp123 I will, once I receive it. See my description.


jetsfanforever14 I would rather play Inventor's Apprentice on Turn 1 than Bomat Courier, as it often becomes a 2/3 on Turn 2.

I'll think about Sphinx of the Final Word, but I've never really liked one ofs.


Jkmiller1 why NOT Untethered Express? The Trample and Crew 1 are both amazing, in this deck.

The other night I hit with Untethered Express as an 8/8, and forced my Opponent to block with their entire field, which then got wiped out, or lose the game.

Have you ever played with it? It is SO good.

It's always difficult to know how a deck is functioning irl, so I don't mind the questions.

As long as they don't turn into a long, drawn out discussion where I have to repeatedly explain why I have chosen to build this deck the way I have.

You must understand, I've been playing a version of this for four seasons, and it has been going gangbusters.


This is not a Control deck. The Counter spells merely stop people from getting rid of Skysovereign, Consul Flagship, or another significant piece, in the late game.

It is not an Aggro deck, either.

It is a mid range Artifact Tribal deck.


Chief of the Foundry doesn't provide much pump in MOST decks.

What you have to remember is that it pumps MOST things in this deck.

So it's not ONE thing hitting you for an extra +1/+1. It's FOUR things hitting you for an extra +1/+1

It's Aethersphere Harvester providing an 8 point swing instead of a 6 point swing.

It's Untethered Express hitting you with 6/6 Trample damage the first time it attacks.

PLUS Scrapheap Scrounger is now a 4/3, another Chief of the Foundry is a 3/4, etc.

With that being the case, subbing other spells for Creatures is counterproductive.


If I happen to need more draw I put in Padeem, Consul of Innovation.

If I need removal I can bring in cards from the Sideboard.

I was wondering if Abrade would shut this deck down. It doesn't.

Due to the fact that I have so many Artifacts, if they get rid of one it doesn't matter that much.

Or I simply Counter it, hence why those spells are necessary.

Hope that all makes sense.
