"This is bigger than you. All of you."
-Tezzeret


This is a tap-out control deck using Tezzeret the Schemer's ultimate as the win condition, it happens very often with the current build. He keeps you alive because the opponent is forced to attack him instead of you. His high loyalty cost is great, he can usually take a hit or two and survive. The back up/main win conditions are with the copys of Tezzeret's Touch. Early game you want to strip threats from the opponent's hand with Harsh Scrutinys. Then use the Pacification Arrays to tap down anything on the field.

The mainboard Fumigate 's are very key to dealing with this deck's worst match-up, red variant vehicle aggro. Which is why Fragmentizes are in the sideboard. It was hard building a correct and consistent mana base around the double costing cards, but it works very well as is. I tried 24-26 lands, but it doesn't work for this type of deck. You end up either mana flooding with useless artifacts in play, or drawing into non-interactive artifacts with a bunch of mana to spend. So the 20-22 land mana base is correct with Renegade Maps. You have mana fixing help from Spire of Industry, Prophetic Prism, Terrarion , and Tezzeret's Lotus Petals.

Reverse Engineer works excellent with the cheap artifacts, and the lower mana base allows you to usually draw into gas. You have all the tools you need to keep your Tezzerets protected. When the opponent is tapped out or you're stabilized, drop him. Don't be afraid to use a copy of him to down tick his ability to pick off creatures either, it's necessary sometimes with certain draws. You'll be using all of his abilities with this deck.

I'm sure the deck could be improved somehow, but it's quite strong currently. Trying to balance artifacts, removal, card draw, survivability, and a mana base to glue it all together is a hard feat for the current Tezzeret.. But it's a solid shell to go off of. I spent a lot of time testing and tweaking the deck so it runs smoothly. I will be continuously looking for faster ways to close out a game without changing the chemistry of the current cards.

Tezzeret the Schemer - Your main win condition, and can be used to pick off creatures. You'll be using all of his abilities with this deck.
Tezzeret's Touch - This card has proven to be a beating. It's good to drop early if you have it, or late game when all resources have been exhausted on both sides. It's not easily removed without mainboard artifact removal or a Fatal Push.
Fatal Push - Nice removal for early threats. Revolt can be triggered with Renegade Map, Terrarion , or a Tezzeret Lotus Petal.

Grasp of Darkness - Good for getting around the indestructible creatures without wasting a Fumigate .
Fumigate - By far the weakest match-up i've come across is red variant vehicle aggro. Surprisingly, this deck handles regular aggro pretty well. So these inclusions are for those vehicle match-ups, and a good reset otherwise if needed.

Harsh Scrutiny - This card has been an all-star, and has won me many games. Taking any threat, getting information, and scrying into whatever you need is a very powerful early play. Can swing the odds in your favor quick.

Reverse Engineer - Very good card draw if built around correctly. It's castable as early as turn 3 to fill your hand back up, and gives you an advantage early on. Also finds Fumigate quicker if facing an onslaught.
Terrarion - To help cast the double mana cards, and another cantrip.

Renegade Map - With this we're able to play less lands, and more of a chance to draw into gas while making land drops. Also just a cheap artifact for Reverse Engineer.

Prophetic Prism - Cantrip and mana fixing.

Pacification Array - Another all-star, saved my ass so many times. This card is very versatile, and prevents damage from coming in. A solid artifact slot for a Tezzeret deck.
