Whirler Virtuoso Discussion

Pappyy1369 on Energy Deck

I took out: 2 Glassblower's Puzzleknot & 1 Whirler Virtuoso

and replaced them with: 2 Glimmer of Genius & 1 The Locust God

Hopefully this will help shift my mana curve as well an an increase in energy gain just a little.

I just added 3 Embraal Gear-Smasher to my deck. I run no rares in my deck and when it takes off it works amazing. Has been a fun deck to play around with and tweak. I run 4 Reckless Fireweaver just for the sheer joy of getting more than one out. Two out on the field with Efficient Construction and Embraal Gear-Smasher is brutal when you drop in a Servo Schematic or Fireforger's Puzzleknot Do the math on that. I also took out my Whirlermaker and added more Woodweaver's Puzzleknot just to get the life gain and three more energy counters for the Whirler Virtuoso So much you can do with this deck and it is cheap and effective. Good luck.

Manc00s on The Art of Tempo - U/W Flash

I've been playing UW flash ever since Amonkhet came out (mainly because I was too lazy trying to find a new deck) and I have to say that many opponents can't handle the tempo plays this deck enables very well.

I'm playing this version: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/instant-deck-tech-uw-spirits-standard

There are tools that just outright wreck you, if they resolve: Walking Ballista or Whirler Virtuoso etc.

Interesting too see Nimble Obstructionist and the amount of counter magic. Personally, Obstructionist doesn't convince me yet and I rather stick to 2x Nebelgast Herald and 2x Always Watching .

I don't know what new tools Ixalan brings, but I don't see this being a thing with the loss of all the spirits, frankly.

If you are still working on this deck, there are a few cards that stand out as easy replacements. Glint Nest Crane doesn't do anything in this deck. You have only 6 total artifacts, so most of the time it is just going to whiff. If you want a tutor for your pummeler, Trophy Mage is a guaranteed way to get the card you want.

Thriving Turtle and Sage of Shaila's Claim are budget cards that can be replaced by something more effective. Shielded Aether Thief is simply a better version of Thriving Turtle. Sage of Shaila's Claim can be replaced by pretty much anything that generates energy. Whirler Virtuoso or Rogue Refiner would be my top picks. I would also cut Woodweaver's Puzzleknot. It is a decent card, but in an aggro/ combo deck like this it really doesn't do much.

You should also look into adding some better options for giving your creatures trample. Invigorated Rampage and Built to Smash are both good options for pumping your pummeler and giving it trample. More importantly, they are instant speed, which means you can also use them as combat tricks.

One final note. If you really want to go back to 2 color, I would go Izzet instead of Simic. U/R offers a lot better options for an aggressive combo deck than U/G does.

Interesting. Have you considered taking out some of the green to improve the consistency? If your main win condition is pummeler, why not focus on trying to get that to go off as oftent as possible. For example, you could replace Voltaic Brawler with Whirler Virtuoso.

Pappyy1369 on Possible infinite combo

1 month ago

I played with this deck last night and found another combo that worked fairly well.

It involved Decoction Module + Whirler Virtuoso + Panharmonicon + Saheeli's Artistry + Thopter Engineer

At this point I already had 5 energy stored. I drew Saheeli's Artistry which I then made a copy of Decoction Module and another random card on my board. This now gave me the ability to make an infinite number of 1/1 flying thopters with haste.

Every time I would use the ability on Whirler Virtuoso it would use 3 energy which brought me down to 2, but the thopter entered the field Decoction Module would give me 1 energy, but because I had 2 thanks to Saheeli's Artistry I would get 2 energy per thopter, but I also had Panharmonicon out and using that cards ability it doubled my energy gain therefore giving me 4 energy putting me at 6. So every time I would use the ability to gain a thopter I would end up with 1 more energy than it cost to cast. Therefore letting me cast an infinite number of thopters and then because Thopter Engineer gives all artifacts haste I was able to swing for that infinite amount of damage.

Taliesin32 on Panharmonicon ETB Abuse

You do have a point. It is kinda the remnants of the infinite thopter combo I used to focus on before I made this list, Whirler Virtuoso + Gonti's Aether Heart + Panharmonicon/Saheeli Rai.The combo is still very much there, but I used to run 3 Gonti's Aether Heart and a lower curve control list.

For the sake of keeping the combo possible I decided to run 1 Gonti's Aether Heart, and it has helped with some other scenarios too.

DubStepDad on It's just a PRANK (Infinite Thopters)

This combo is a bit easier to pull of with Gonti's Aether Heart instead of Decoction Module. You only need that and Panharmonicon, making it a 3 card combo instead of a 4 card combo with Whirler Virtuoso. Then you also get to take an extra turn after creating your gigantic army to make sure your opponent can't use a sweeper before you kill them.
