Marvelous Paradox




This deck idea was burrowed by MTGGoldfish who is a awesome magic player. This deck is a fun Aetherworks Marvel deck that I watched a lot of videos on. Usually I like to build my own deck but this was a pretty sweet one. I am not really looking for ideas to improve this deck but maybe other sideboard cards would be useful. Hope you like this deck and I recommend trying it out sometime. (I am doing the more expensive version of this deck which just adds more duel lands)



I've gotten completely destroyed by a deck like this at FNM. You just keep looking for free cards until you get Ulamog, which mills you out.

Interesting combo. I didn't really get it until I tried it out a bit. With Paradox Engine you can machine gun Aetherworks Marvel activations when you're pulling Aethertide Whales and Peema Aether-Seers.

I think your sideboard is ok. I'd probably swap out one Appetite for the Unnatural for one more Confiscation Coup. And I'd probaly swap out two Negate for two Horribly Awry. But those are fairly tiny adjustments.

I'd really want to find room in the main deck for Altered Ego though, to increase the number of Marvel targets you can pull to reload the Marvel. Maybe take out one or two Aetherwind Basker which is much worse when in your opening hand.

Yes if you look at MTGGoldfishes deck list he does have Confiscation Coup in the sideboard. I think I still like Negate better than Horribly Awry but thanks for the tip. Altered Ego I might try later once I know the deck better. You are right when it comes to Aetherwind Basker and it really does suck when in your hand because you might never get the chance to cast it.

I've been playing the deck on Mtgo for a few weeks and it is super fun. Confiscation Coup seems fun but hasn't really been worth it in games I've seen. Basically you get the combo or sometimes you get wrecked so going for the combo again and again instead of spinning a coup off of your marvel is usually the better choice. I've only ever liked it when I took a dank demon Demon of Dark Schemes but it is really meta dependant I guess. Horribly Awry could be great and I can see it in the 75 but not over Negates, they are just so versatile and are sometimes what save you against Mardu vehicles. I've been sporting some Harnessed Lightnings in place of a Shock and the coup which has helped tremendously in the early game. With the energy production that this deck has, lightings are just too easy. Whale army FTW!
