Veteran Motorist Discussion

My friends and I play some crazy Tiny Leader decks against each other, the reigning champion has been the Elf tribal so far. One friend has a Dwarf tribal deck that is really awesome with Depala, Pilot Exemplar as the leader. He shoved in some vehicles and other really good dwarves, like Sram, Senior Artificer and Veteran Motorist. Another friend did a snakes tribal, U/B Dimir. It's pretty wicked too, but since Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons recently came out he is debating changing it from top to bottom. Then there's a friend with a human tribal who uses Teysa, Orzhov Scion.

Maybe you could relegate some of the discard to the sideboard to free up slots, I feel you want more Mentors too. Not sure about Veteran Motorist.

You should make it red white, if you can. That would allow you to have access to a few good 2 drop white dwarf creatures Veteran Motorist is one. I noticed that you didn't have any turn two plays which is why I made that suggestion, the current standard meta is fairly quick, so either add a consistent way to wipe the board turn 4/5 such as Fumigate. If anything it looks interesting, possibly move out Conviction and replace it with a Built to Last since it would allow you to keep something on the board early or late game if they have targeted removal.

Daredevil Dragster, Sun Titan, Phyrexian Arena


Darksteel Ingot, Commander's Sphere,


Anguished Unmaking, Crackling Doom, Terminate, Utter End, Return to Dust

Win Cons.:

Start Your Engines


Nomad Outpost Perfect Tri-color land.


Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Ankle Shanker, Mother of Runes To ensure you can get damage in and protect your key creatures.

Weldfast Engineer, Untethered Express

Potential Cuts:

Veteran Motorist I am not sure you get the value youre looking for.

Visara the Dreadful, Royal Assassin, Eradicate Seal of Doom You have plenty of single target removal. Look to add more board wipes.

Perilous Vault, Felhide Spiritbinder Too cute and not enough value from the mana sink as the token leaves.

Yeesh, this definitely seems like a pretty scary place to start. If this is a deck for a new player, I would definitely cut down on the number of colors you are running. A deck that is running not just 3, but 4 colors definitely does not seem like the place to start. I'd try to drop it down to just 2 colors, maybe red and white as they work best with vehicles. I would then increase the number of copies of each card and try to smooth out the gameplan and mana curve of the deck. Maybe get like 4x Veteran Motorist, 4x Thraben Inspector, 4x Toolcraft Exemplar, a couple more Depala, Pilot Exemplar and then some good vehicles. Try to make a nice curve with varied mana costs, just using whatever else you have. None of these cards cost more than a dollar, and 4-ofs of each of them shouldn't cost more than 5-10 bucks. This should give your friend a pretty good place to start learning magic from, playing a deck with a good curve and defined gameplan.

I suggest cutting a few cards that feel to me like they don't belong as much, such as Lupine Prototype, Welding Sparks, Barrage Tyrant, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. Fine cards, but they don't work your combo.

Instead, complete playsets of excellent cards such as Veteran Motorist, Siege Modification, Built to Last, and Built to Smash.

I also recommend Renegade Wheelsmith, Gearshift Ace.

I feel like there needs to be more ways of getting revolt of the call for unity and solemn recruit. Thraben Inspector is a 1 drop that not only gives you an early creature but also a clue which can be cracked to get revolt. To make these changes I would suggest removing Scrapper Champion and Untethered Express for a whole playset of thraben inspectors.

There is also Veteran Motorist and Toolcraft Exemplar, these will give you great synergy and speed with the vehicles.

Other than that, I like the deck.
