Wrench Mind Discussion

Kjartan on Insult to Injury (Artifacts)

Cool idea. Can't remember seeing a deck using Pia's Revolution and Hidden Stockpile together. I've thought about doing it before, but never really got around to it...

I don't think this deck is very fast, but I don't think it needs to be. It just needs to be fast enough to make your opponent think twice before just taking 3 from Revolution.

I don't think Pain Magnification is that good, but you seem to have come to the same conclusion as well. It takes too much setup, and it quickly runs out of potential as your opponent runs out of cards in hand.

Wrench Mind is fine, but I personally wouldn't play it outside of a discard themed deck.

Vexing Devil I'm on the fence about. I usually only really think it's good in really fast zoo decks, and Claim / Fame burns. Since you're not super fast, your opponent can pretty easily take the 4 damage a lot of the time. However, it is pretty good with Hidden Stockpile . Ultimately I think you can do better.

Not sure you have enough Instants to support Isochron Scepter , but if you do, the card is really, really powerful.

Mishra's Bauble , Chromatic Star , Lightning Helix (to replace Lightning Strike ), Bomat Courier , and Arcbound Ravager _(which is extrememly expensive, but also OP af) could be some additions/replacements

Wrench Mind is good over mindrot, The Rack and Shrieking Affliction if your looking to go down the route of 8-rack and recommend pulling mind sludge, it sounds good but it's total bait, the goal is to discard there cards as they get them, you should never be in a position where they have more than 2 cards in hand on turn 5, also Raven's Crime is good and recurring as well

@Demention - Mutavault was just an example of a manland. There are many 1/1 manlands which would be more useful in a deck like this. You draw a card every turn, so it's a guaranteed extra damage or a useful blocker. Blinkmoth Nexus and Inkmoth Nexus are good examples of 1/1 flying manlands.

18 lands is pretty low. I'd honestly consider dropping 4x Wrench Mind and add 4x more lands, putting you at 22. You want to be on the prepared side of Smallpox , which punishes low land count decks. I'd run the lands like this: 3x Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , 4x Blinkmoth Nexus , 4x Field of Ruin , 13x Swamp . That gives you even more land control, a creature win-con to speed up the game, and Urborg makes the colorless lands easier to play.

Raven's Crime and Wrench Mind are probably your weakest cards. If you're looking for room, I'd start there.

Hey wallisface,

Honestly. You're probably 100% right, but we won't find out for about 6 days as I took my old "The Rack" deck and reassembled it and the Waste Not are a new addition which I ordered in the mail and didn't arrive in time for modern night. They may end up being sideboard against decks with a lot of card draw?

I thought they would be good because if I Inquisition of Kozilek turn 1, Waste Not turn 2, then on the third turn each discard will produce extra value and if I have a Wrench Mind or Smallpox or Raven's Crime and they choose to discard a land, it gives me mana to empty my hand in turn emptying their hand. Its highly likely that this doesn't actually end up being the case. I used to be an avid rack player, got out of magic for a while, and then ever since I have been back have thought about building 8rack ( Shrieking Affliction didn't exist when I played it) and I finally just got the Liliana and Shrieking Affliction to put it together.

I am however also considering removing Fatal Push for Liliana's Triumph as it would come for an extra mana with card value of a discard in many situations and at instant speed, plus the kill spell aspect would be unchanged. Would love your thoughts on that because again, I haven't played Rack in quite a while and it seems to have improved quite a bit (although the entire meta has power-creeped).

I posted this on your help slot but here it is again so you dont have to flip as much. - So 4 Liliana's is a great thing to have which i see you do have. Now you want the most effective one drop and 2 drop spells you can get your hand on. - 4x Inquisition of Kozilek 4x Raven's Crime (you are trading 1 card for 2 thats why its so good) 4x thoughtseize (best hand disruption in the game!) 4x Collective Brutality I see a lot of these in 8-rack decks, probably because its a versatile card. - Smallpox is life loss, removal, and card removal! - Fatal Push is a classic removal spell in black in modern because of fetch lands and cards like Ghost Quarter . - you have all 4 racks which is good, I am unsure about Ensnaring Bridge he isn't the strongest card in modern (surprisingly), and for sure isn't worth 4 card slots. - Shrieking Affliction is an amazing card for you, so its good you have 4. - Every 8-rack deck i have seen has 4x Mutavault so he is probably important. None of them have had Deathrite Shaman . 2x Hostile Desert could help as well.

  • Now I have seen some decks use Wrench Mind and some decks have used Funeral Charm charm as well, but only 2 or 3 per card.

  • As for your SB (sideboard) 100% of decks have: 1x waste not, 4x surgical extraction, 2x dark confident. I would recommend damping sphere for when you fight storm.

This has already been said, but you really do need all 4 Wrench Mind s. I'd cut Liliana's Triumph for them, especially since you only have 4 Lilis in the deck.
