Voltaic Servant Discussion

DarthVirulence on Dimir Artifacts on a Budget

May I suggest Hornswoggle for a fun counterspell? :) Also - Traxos, Scourge of Kroog is a lot of fun but unless you're running Voltaic Servant, it's too unreliable to use competitively. Also The Antiquities War makes it less useful. I'd consider getting something that generates extra artifacts if you want to use that most effectively- either that or a lot of cheap artifacts like Navigator's Compass and Explosive Apparatus.

Skilled Animator is the bomb. Hands down, favorite card of the new set so far.

Also Silent Gravestone is your friend versus Mill/Graveyard Decks.

I like the idea of your deck a lot! The synergy is pretty decent but I'd opt for more control/tempo and fewer creatures if you want to be able to handle a variety of playstyles. The rough part about synergy is that it's SO MUCH FUN when it works but fairly easy to disrupt.

My artifact deck is here if you want to see what I mean by a bit more tempo: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/artifacts-of-war-2/#c3349527 It's not AS aggressive as yours but it can handle creature removal and counterspells on its own.

What is the benefit of having Curious Obsession in this deck? As soon as it gets equipped, you lose the benefit of Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive. Card draw is good and all, but your creatures will be blockable with this on either one.

I would also suggest Winds of Rebuke for tempo, as it is great with Fraying Sanity out. Also, Voltaic Servant might be a good card post rotation, as it can untap itself after combat or untap Millstone on your turn, allowing you to use it again on their turn.

DarthVirulence on Blue/Black Tezzeret Artifact

Have you considered Tezzeret's Touch and Skilled Animator coupled with some low-cost artifacts like Sparring Construct, Voltaic Servant or Ornithopter ?

The title says black/blue artifacts but currently looks more like a control deck that hopes to get artifacts at some point. In the current iteration, Sai, Master Thopterist is pretty useless because you don't really have any artifacts to cast and make use of its ability.

Cards I'd say to look into: Explosive Apparatus, Sparring Construct, Metallic Mimic, Mishra's Self-Replicator, Skilled Animator, Tezzeret's Touch

Even just a few of those in the deck will give you some artifacts to make use of. - Helm of the Host + Mishra's Self-Replicator + Sai, Master Thopterist is a decent backbone to pair with both Tezzeret and Karn AND they can be made even strong with your Antiquities War or Skilled Animator

(Otherwise there's Metalwork Colossus and Traxos, Scourge of Kroog but those do not benefit from being 5/5s.

Hope that helps! :) Good luck!

Thanks for the tips. This is still a work in progress, so the final run will look a lot different than the current one. Budget is the key word in this first build, if it turns out to be working, I might add some more value cards to strengthen it. I know I should go into blue, but I really want to try not to.

You're right about Fertile Ground, it's too costly. The upside is that you can put it on Darksteel Citadel, which can be untapped with Voltaic Servant (or maybe Voltaic Key?). In each case, I think I'm going to replace it by two more Llanowar Elves for the time being.

About Darksteel Colossus: this should of course be Blightsteel Colossus as this gives you an alternate win-con, but I don't own this card.

About Power Conduit, I don't agree a 100% with your assessment because I'm hoping to get Winding Constrictor out. At that time it doesn't as much move the charge counters, but doubles them.

About the tutoring, I guess I should add Ancient Stirrings (which i don't own).

I think Navigator's Compass is extremely weak. Jhoira's Familiar make everything in the deck cheaper and Voltaic Servant has synergy with Traxos, Scourge of Kroog. Skittering Surveyor is decent but really should only be played in a deck that has multiple colors. Jousting Lance is a decent card, probably better than Helm of the Host in a deck like this that doesn't have many bomby creatures.

Tezzeret's Gambit is not bad if your trying to Proliferate

Voltaic Servant does Unwinding Clock, but a creature so more it will get more hate. Possibly a good thing? get the removal away from the infect. decent blocker too

thanks for the suggestions geoffw. mostly, Voltaic Servant is just an overall good cards in this deck, both as acceleration for a Mirage Mirror (or something post sideboard) and as a brick wall for red aggro decks. i must admit i do find myself sideboarding him out in match ups where i need to be more interactive but i still think he's good for a game one choice. i do love whir in this deck though in favor of the replicators or something else, having a tutor for the pieces of the combo is never a bad thing, i'll see what i can move out!
