Tale of Redemption: The Overlords of Metal Playtest

Casual Karkain


Alright, ladies and gentlemen, after a lot of thinking, I've decided that I'm going to shift into fifth gear and work as many kinks out of my first (and favorite) deck as possible. I'll be making my own edits day-by-day, but I would very much like outside opinions (if you're thinking to tell me to cut Green and Red, I will not because Esper is too boring and this was and has always been a 5-color Artifact deck). The idea is now to trim this into a crushing machine with a returning vengeance. Seriously, I'm only looking to reduce size at this point and slowly weed out the less-than-necessary stuff.

Interesting take, I like it.

You have a lot of 1x ofs. I dig the variety, but does that hinder your consistency?

Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas MTG Card: Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas should definitely be mainboard, in my opinion.

Your sideboard should include stuff to counter artifact hate like Creeping CorrosionMTG Card: Creeping Corrosion, ShatterstormMTG Card: Shatterstorm, etc.

It actually doesn't. Between cards like Tinker, Genesis Wave (which is incredibly powerful with Tolarian Academy and Mycosynth Lattice), and Etched Monstrosity, consistency isn't too much of a problem.

I know, I'm told that a lot. But unless they kill Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas when I drop him, they're dead on my next turn. I hate winning with the same card over and over. Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker is a lot more fun.

Aside from relying on Assert Authority or Darksteel Forge, I was considering more Tinkers to drop my Darksteel Forge quicker or even the ever-broken "Tinker to drop a Darksteel Colossus" combo.

Tezzeret is also a great tutor, which could help sift through your cards. Genesis WaveMTG Card: Genesis Wave is badass... Darksteel ForgeMTG Card: Darksteel Forge as a 4x is almost necessary here...

Nicol Bolas is fun, but with 8CMC and 1x, do you get him out often? Tezzeret is 4CMC and I think would be much more useful. But, just suggestions.

Yeah, but I can only grab 1 artifact. There have been times where I've passed up True Conviction/Genesis Wave/Assert Authority or had to choose between two artifacts that I needed.

When I draw Bolas, I usually drop him to either clinch the game of turn things around. Again, Bolas is mainly for fun, if I'm up against a deck that poses a big threat to me, I'll run Tezzie for sure. Thanks for the suggestions, it's great to hear other people's views on things.

...Is this EDH? Why is there a general? General is for EDH...

It's not EDH. I did it because I always have considered the Colossus the leader of the deck, plus it's just a fun thought thank you very much...

All you have to do is count the number of cards... gee whiz. It's not even close to 100. Great deck man. Gave me some good ideas for mine.
