Unwinding Clock Discussion

Camel-Senpai on Thopter Arest

Ancient Tomb and Eye of Ugin are pretty big for colorless decks. Void Winnower provides a safety measure against the majority of board wipes in the game. Smokestack is a pretty fun control method for colorless decks, given that you can find a way to generate tokens. Orochi Hatchery is a surprisingly funny way to do this, but you may want to consider something less mana heavy if you want to go that route. Mycosynth Lattice combos with Unwinding Clock by letting you untap all of your lands on other peoples' turns. With Shimmer Myr this gets more than a bit frustrating for your opponents. I'm actually somewhat surprised by the lack of Steel Hellkite in this deck, seeing as you can perform a targeted board wipe on tokens and smaller creatures for a small mana cost.

So first off, welcome to the tapped out community and the amazing game of magic!

The first talking point on your deck is it's all over the place in format. Technology it's modern legal but I don't feel you are going for modern with this.

I'd sugggest working this into a Frontier format deck as you are almost there already.

To do this you need to drop the Counterspell, Thopter Assembly, Izzet Guildgate, Sulfur Falls, Temple of Epiphany, Phyrexian Metamorph, Tezzeret the Seeker , and Unwinding Clock. There are plenty of solid replacements for all of these and by doing so you'll be able to start playing with similar format decks.

When you start playing you'll see what the strengths and weaknesses of your deck are and you'll be able to tune it accordingly.

Otherwise this looks like a great starting point and a lot of fun.

well, to start, many of the cards in your list are not going to be legal in the upcoming standard. If you want to keep it a standard deck, you will have to remove Counterspell, Hangarback Walker, Pia and Kiran Nalaar, Thopter Assembly, Whirler Rogue, Shrapnel Blast, Izzet Guildgate, Sulfur Falls, Thopter Spy Network from the main and Phyrexian Metamorph, Tezzeret the Seeker , and Unwinding Clock from your sideboard.

For some standard legal thopter cards you could consider Maverick Thopterist, Efficient Construction, Pia Nalaar, and Experimental Aviator

Probably Trading Post and Nevinyrral's Disk since you have better answers or effects in play already. You could also find room for Unwinding Clock in there, which is stupidly effective in this kind of deck.

Unwinding Clock + Darksteel Forge + Nevinyrral's Disk clear the board on your opponents untap steps and get psuedo vigilance

Okay, replying to some old-ish comments because I can.

illumfolly and sjsilver - those are some good suggestions that I will try out, thanks!

CrazyGood-MTG9797 - whoa, that's a lot of changes! Honestly, dropping huge creatures is really not what this deck is about! This deck is super slow and grindy and a turn-4 Darksteel Colossus just isn't something I'm looking to do. The more high-CMC cards I play, the worse cards like Ghirapur Orrery get, since it's harder to empty my hand. It's also pretty easy for me to find a way to win once I've taken control in this deck, so additional win-condition creatures aren't really needed.

ayaeger - yeah, I've been trying to figure that out myself.. Basically, cards like Bazaar of Baghdad and Forcefield are so unique and powerful that there aren't really any budget "replacements" for them. If you're looking to build this deck on a budget, you can sub in any other sort of cards that support the deck; cards like Smoke, Mystifying Maze, Spine of Ish Sah, anything from the sideboard. You could go deeper on artifacts by playing things like Urza's Blueprints and Unwinding Clock to draw extra cards instead of Bazaar of Baghdad + Uba Mask. Things like Winter Orb might be interesting, too, depending on your playgroup. Just look to slow down the game and draw a bunch of cards!

I was thinking Enigma Sphinx, I can tutor out the cards I need and with things like Unwinding Clock, Mycosynth Lattice, Chromatic Lantern, and Celestial Dawn, I don't think mana will be a problem.
