Wurmcoil Engine Discussion
1 day ago
Thank you both for your comments. @VmanTo be honest i don't have any Wurmcoil Engine and while i love Steel Hellkite, that love is not enough to completely win my love for Tribal Strategies (still, it is always in the deckbox with a Mindslaver and a pair of Myr Battlesphere). @Shiway87win: i think that the PiliPala combo with Banefire or the Ballista has not its home in this deck. To me, it really needs a less aggressive and more combo oriented shell, which can tutor and preserve the pieces of the combo until turn 3-4.

This is actually the first deck i had problems dealing with when it was standard, and that brings back so many good memories.

Where it really shines is like what you guessed with Tarmogoyf. That is, midrange and control decks that try to grind their opponent down. It's still good against aggro, but it's much stronger when you're able to steal Wurmcoil Engine, Reality Smasher, or Kitchen Finks.
I'd play it in a meta where you're expecting decks that rely on larger creatures with efficient mana costs.

I like the idea a lot. However, Darksteel Juggernaut seems like an odd finisher. Have you considered Wurmcoil Engine instead? I can't imagine the one mana making a huge difference in this kind of deck. Also, have you ever had issues getting colorless mana for your Mirrorpools?

With all the Tutoring for land I would remove most of you #ramp cards and replace them.e.g.
I would also change the following.
Take notice that you have 19 #Tutor cards, 16 #draw cards and 9 #ramp cards.
That's 44 cards for searching and mana versus 33 Cards for the rest of your deck.
When I look at your cards by type I see that most cards that you can use for attacking are your creatures and planeswalker.
When your commander is not on the field, you will have a problem.
I would add an alternative way of dealing damage or use some alternative win-conditions e.g.

I would say add in a little more ramp other than the Sol Ring and maybe a few more early board defenders to protect you until you get your game plan going. Also, I don't know what your budget is but I'd recommend you get a strong wincon like Wurmcoil Engine

Herald of Leshrac is heavy on mana but is some super-secret tech that dunks on midrange and control decks. Grave Titan is also above the curve you were asking for, but it's worth mentioning because of how powerful it is.
The other thing to think about are the larger infect creatures, which are Phyrexian Crusader, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, Phyrexian Juggernaut, and Phyrexian Vatmother. You lose the ability to win via normal damage and life loss, but you gain creatures that are really efficient for their mana cost.
Distended Mindbender and Abundant Maw are also reasonable when combined with things like Solemn Simulacrum. Speaking of Eldrazi, don't forget the plethora of colorless creatures that you can jam into your mono-black deck. That includes stuff like Wurmcoil Engine, Duplicant, Grid Monitor, Silent Arbiter, Scuttling Doom Engine, and Steel Hellkite.

I would concur with the others about your sideboard. Soulfire Grand Master really isn't what you want against aggro or in the mirror. Kor Firewalkers backed up by Path to Exile to deal with your opponents' Kor Firewalkers is where you want to go. You also want Path to Exile so you don't just scoop to a Wurmcoil Engine on turn 3 from a Tron player.
I'd probably change your sideboard to look something like:
If you are wanting to build up a Tribal Flames list, you play black for Bump in the Night and blue for Geist of Saint Traft. I play Tribal Zoo myself with Siege Rhino, Noble Hierarch, Tarmogoyf, and Wild Nacatl. I'll post my deck here if you want or you can find it in my profile.
