Voltaic Construct Discussion

I'm going to suggest you change this completely, here it goes! :)

Golems. Big golems. Go golem tribal like Altar Golem, Colossus of Sardia, Platinum Emperion, Phyrexian Colossus, Mage-Ring Responder, Colossus of Akros, etc.

But a weakness is many do not untap...but wait! Artifacts like Magewright's Stone, Voltaic Construct, Thousand-Year Elixir, Clock of Omens, Voltaic Key, etc. do just that. More fun though can be had with Threaten effects that you can use either on opponents' stuff or to untap your own. Interactive decks few!

A fun twist would be to have Bosh, Iron Golem out + Hijack, etc + Liquimetal Coating/Silverskin Armor to fling any of their creatures back into their faces.

And there's lots of fun utility golems to abuse. Ancestral Statue can bounce a big guy who attacked and just recast cheaply due to Rakdos' ability. Solemn Simulacrum is a staple. Beast of Burden takes advantage of token decks. Glass Golem's art looks wicked ;). Precursor Golem can add in some 1-shot draw spells like Crimson Wisps to draw a ton if lucky. Sundering Titan for fun control.

Feldon of the Third Path, Daretti, Scrap Servant, Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient, Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer, Tuktuk the Explorer, and Urabrask the Hidden are all legendaries that play nicely with a theme like this I think.

So keep your burn/damage to activate Rakdos' ability, add some haste enabler like Fervor so your golems can attack upon entering, include fun enchantments like Blood Mist, Flameshadow Conjuring, and Mana Echoes.

Yeah, I'm with Lilbrudder on the ramp there. Orzhov Signet is missing, and the talismans.

For the cuts, maybe you could cut one of the boots. And Lim-Dul's Vault doesn't put you the card you want in your hand. It's like a more expensive and more damaging Vampiric Tutor. Soul of New Phyrexia has never been useful enough to me. Scourglass is a non-bo with Mycosynth Lattice. Caltrops could also be cutted, except if you putted it in for a local metagame answer (facing too many token players?).

One more: Voltaic Construct can make infinite mana with an animated Gilded Lotus or Thran Dynamo. A bit narrow, but fun hehe.

Entrei on I'm bored... lets play stax!

Voltaic Construct. Considered it, but ultimately decided to refrain from infinite combos as the deck is annoying enough already

Karn, Silver Golem + Voltaic Construct + any artifact that taps for 3 or more mana = infinite mana

Love the deck. I don't feel like there is enough hate support if you continue this way, unless I'm just not noticing some apparent pieces.

If you want this to have more combos, I recommend Karn, Silver Golem and Voltaic Construct to go infinite with Dreamstone Hedron.

Overall, great deck. +1

Paradox Engine is just way too beast. I just made an upgraded Sidisi storm with it:deck-large:new-sidisi-1 (Large decklink not working :( )

It's like there's nothing it doesn't make better. In here it's great because with it and Corpse Dance on Sidisi you get infinite mana, infinite storm, and infinite tutors. If you get off to a good enough start you can even tutor for it instead of Ad Nauseam. Think about that. It can be better than Ad Nauseam in ANT Sidisi. How ridiculous is that? (I suppose it's just AN Sidisi now that Aetherflux Reservoir is a thing, nut w/e.)

Watch it's gonna get banned and we'll have spent months coming up with these designs for nothing. That's gonna suck.

Anyway, I like your list quite a bit. I have no experience playing Kozilek so my insights probably won't be too detailed. As for not having not having Mishra's Workshop and stuff, why don't you just make a second deck and put them in? All the lists I've been submitting have been purely fantasy, and I'm sure NarejED hasn't built all of his. Just copy/paste the primer you wrote (which is excellent by the way) and add a note at the top that links back to the original. That's what I've been doing.

This might be a personal preference, but I'd also merge all your separate land categories into one. It's a little hard to read the way you have it, and you already go into detail about what all the lands do in the primer.

As for the deck itself, I'm just going to take issue with one card. Unwinding Clock seems really superfluous to me. I looked in your primer and you talked about using it with Null Brooch, Predator, Flagship, and Soul Conduit, but those all have been taken out, so really all you have that works well with it is Staff of Domination, Kuldotha Forgemaster, Coalition Relic, and sort of Grim/Basalt/ManaVault. Just six cards, three of which only give you mana, isn't really enough to warrant it anymore, IMO.

I also think Solemn might be a little slow here, and Oblivion Sower confuses me.

TronIsloveTronislife, I looked at your list too, and it also seems solid. You and Gigi run a lot of the same cards, so it's tricky to tell which one is "better." However I do think yours is running some cards that could be considered sup-prime, specifically:

Akroma's Memorial, Batterskull, Blinkmoth Urn (helps opponents), Darksteel Forge, Icy Manipulator, Mycosynth Lattice, Nevinyrral's Disk, Pacification Array, Planar Portal, Smokestack, Static Orb (seems like this is ONLY playable with Unwinding Clock), Tower of Fortunes, Cloudpost/Glimmerpost (basically taplands, replace with Wastes), Karn, Silver Golem, Silent Arbiter (won't bother many cEDH decks), Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger (he's mediocre without anhilator, and Eldrazi are the easiest thing for you to tutor), and Voltaic Construct.

A lot of these have high costs that, while you are able to pay, restrict how much you're able to do per turn. I know using Kuldotha Forgemaster to chain into Darksteel Citadel+Mycosynth Lattice+Nevinyrral's Disk, or Karn, Silver Golem+Voltaic Construct+Gilded Lotus is awesome and tempting, but when you start hardcasting them in a deck that's trying to win by turn 5, it gets a little less awesome, and chaining into Basalt Monolith+Rings of Brighthearth+Sensei's Divining Top or Staff of Domination+Metalworker gets the job done just as well with way less overhead.

Reminder: Never played Kozilek, my word is not gospel, don't quote any of this or be offended, your deck still looks like you put a lot of time / effort / quality into it.

Also I gotta vote for gigi in this case for that super detailed primer. That's really good to have on a sample decklist.
