One card people have been underating in colorless decks are powerstone shards. in most games with four of them i usually play two per game. This deck would do pretty good with 4 of these.

I feel like i don't really need it in here. As is I run relatively on pace without it past 4 land is a bonus

Hey w33m4n thanks for the feedback on our Construct Tribal! I really like your build, here. Since you have a pretty heavy colorless streak, would you consider Zhalfirin Void? I think 1-2 copies wouldn't hurt your manabase and add a few more scrys (which in turn help you get to that 4 land plateau you want).

CleverCombo yeah i have been dabiting it with testing. Will likely run 2 of em

I think swapping Battle out to the sideboard for 4 Fatal Push and dropping to 2 Cast Down would work better overall.
April 29, 2018 11:53 a.m.
Why would I do that when battle at the bridge can remove big bodies that fatal push cannot and give me life to help sustain my game. Also did you notice the budget tag
April 29, 2018 12:29 p.m.
I look at the price, not the tag. $125 isn't exactly budget.
Battle at the Bridge is far better in the sideboard where you can pull it out against decks where you really need the lifegain. If you don't have removal for the little guys then you're just gonna get ran over by faster decks before you can benefit from a large cast Battle.
April 29, 2018 2:25 p.m.
Even a small mid battle works. Point is its pick a size with improvise. And 125 is cheap for standard compared to most decks that range in at 200 plus
April 29, 2018 11:57 p.m.
Youd be surprised how cheap standard decks run now with dominaria.
April 30, 2018 7:03 a.m.
Sure but most of the usual hitters cost min 2 for big time standard decks specially now with them all including Karn at almost 50 bucks a pop

Nice build. Why is Padeem in SB and not the main? I have a deck similar to this. I could post my version if you're okay with that. And having the playset of Traxos may be hard because of the Legendary rule.
April 30, 2018 1:08 p.m.
Paddem went sb because 4 drop slot is very important in this deck and almost all the power. So decks with more hate than normal he will come in. And i prefer always havimg the option of hitting multiple traxos because i expect he will be removed quite frequently and he's my big hitter so I always wanna have one out. Plus if I'm in a pinch I can technically still cast him destroying him but still getting the historic trigger to untap one that is on the field. But that's worst case scenario
April 30, 2018 1:53 p.m.
If anyone were to build this there are ways to round it out and change it up but still be good.I just feel this is a really good bang for the buck build. Has ways to kill this. Fetch what it needs and still have a good amount of power and synergy. My only card im iffy about keeping is opt.
April 30, 2018 1:57 p.m.
Okay. That's fair. I was thinking along the same lines. Scrapheap Scrounger could go well in this deck being a recursive threat. Would it be okay if I posted my version? If not, it's fine. In place of opt, Metallurgic Summonings could work very well.
April 30, 2018 2:10 p.m.
Pabs4444 Scrapheap has been in and out. my 2 drop slot has Voltaic Servant which synergizes on field better. Also Scrapheap Scrounger's recursive ability isn't a cast so bringing him back wouldn't help with Traxos, Scourge of Kroog triggering to untap, whereas the servant will untap my early guys keep a nice defensive wall out and once traxos is out will keep untapping him at the end of my turn so he's up for blocking even after an attack. It's kinda like giving him fo-vigilance.
Metallurgic Summonings is ok in here but I don't have that many spells for it to be really useful. I've been debating on using a Diff draw spell or maybe something else that can filter or more removal. (Real world I'll likely end up adding Fatal Push just because I have a bunch of em). I've also been toying around with The Scarab God in here cause why not. That would be worth the 5 mana and still hits on historic trigger or even Tezzeret the Schemer or Tezzeret's Touch. Vanquisher's Banner crossed my mind too

CleverCombo It's Amazeballz in mono blue control now with all the damn counterspells that are out there or even dimir or spellslinger izzet
April 30, 2018 2:56 p.m.
Thanks! Here's the deck I have mentioned. DOMinating artifacts. I also made a mistake in my recommendation. I meant Metallic Rebuke rather than summonings. I totally understand the strengths behind Voltaic Servant.
April 30, 2018 3:46 p.m.
Ehh if im gonn run counters I'd rather solid counter than with a possibly payable cost. Sb has counters to deal with reactive plays and kill spells to deal with the bodies

Zhalfirin Void and Sequestered Stash seems to hard on the mana base for a two colour deck. Something that could be included is Tezzeret the Schemer as he is a value engine picking off opponents creature with his minus and gaining artifacts and mana with his plus and a game winning ultimate he has so much synergy with ther rest of the deck i can't see why not to include him. another value engine is Treasure Map Flip. overall i really like this deck and am exited to see Traxos, Scourge of Kroog and Voltaic Servant in a deck
