Again, green for JUST Unbridled Growth is absurd.
February 1, 2017 9:15 p.m.
I've been playtesting your deck and the unbrindled growth is very good and definitely worth splashing for it cantrips for one mana and draws a card off of Sram
February 2, 2017 12:09 a.m.
Yea, the card is strictly worse than Abundant Growth in this deck, but turns out a strictly worse abundant growth is still really really good. haha

I'm really not sure what you are trying to accomplish here. I see you have plenty of card draw but what is your win-con?
February 2, 2017 10:51 a.m.
You win by dumping tens of spells with a Aetherflux Reservoir in play, gaining enough life to one-shot the opponent for 50 damage.
I'm actually writing a description right now to explain the deck and card choices, so come back in half an hour or so if you want to read the card choices.
February 2, 2017 10:55 a.m.
Interesting. Not my style, but interesting nonetheless.
February 2, 2017 10:57 a.m.
yo dawg i built and playtested it, its waaay too reliant on sram but whens hes out it works. merge my versions and yours together and it'll work better. The 4 sram-8 equipment-4 statuary needs to work its way into mine, also you pretty much need to mainboard a tleast 4 counterspells

Thinking about cutting green and trying out black for Tezzert's Touch and adding key to the city for an alternate win con, what do you guys think?
February 2, 2017 10:03 p.m.
Tezzeret's Touch is cool, but doesn't really fit with the rest of the deck. like, once I'm comboing off it doesn't do much but sit in my hand. Key to the City? Is it part of some combo? Or is the idea to just draw cards with it and Inspiring Statuary?
February 2, 2017 10:35 p.m.
Not enough room in this deck for an alternate wincon, really need to focus on storming off
I'd rather focus on having at least a playset of counterspells rather than splashing green for 2 cards I probably won't even draw
February 3, 2017 2:40 p.m.
If you say so dude. The deck is for you haha. So Unbridled Growth-->Dispel? What goes in the SB tho? Another color is incredibly easy to add, so what do you recommend? Slow (non-combo) Control is this deck's weakness, so we gotta find some SB cards for that. What was your old one?
Ill make changes once I get to test variation.
February 3, 2017 4:17 p.m.
Awsome deck dude but is it consistent enough for blue mana at the right time?
February 8, 2017 3:34 a.m.
Yes, it certainly is. Th one change that may be coming is cutting green entirely and adding dispel to the MB instead. Thoughts?
February 8, 2017 6:59 a.m.
I dont see exactly where this is going i think green is ok because of the color fix but how do you go off T4.
February 8, 2017 11:57 a.m.
You play t3 Inspiring Statuary--> tap Inspiring Statuary to play Sram for , then cycle a few equipments, cast Baral's Expertise for targeting the equipments, use the expertise to cast Aetherflux Reservoir for free, re-cast the equipments again (they will still draw you cards because Sram is still in play), this time they will gain you a ton of life, and then cast Paradoxical Outcome for and cast more free spells.
This should give you to lots of life, and much more than enough to OTK with your Aetherflux Reservoir.

Ok i tested a bit with this deck( i love it) but its hella inconsistent what are we gonna do about this. Point 1 is manascrew 20 lands is ok in statuary decks but it hard to be consistent with mulligans. point 2 the danger of fizzle is actually a problem.
February 8, 2017 2:43 p.m.
I would say it's pretty consistent and doesn't fizzle much, but yea it is a very real problem.
I wish there was more card draw, but I don't really like anticipate that much. Any other good spells you can think of?
February 8, 2017 5:39 p.m.
February 9, 2017 6 p.m.
No, I have not. That could be interesting, but seems a bit worse as it is slower. Can you link a list? I would love to see that deck in action!
February 9, 2017 7:10 p.m.
February 9, 2017 7:22 p.m.
February 10, 2017 3:21 a.m.
Sram will always at least cycle, so I would much rather not cut him as if the opponent can't respond to it you will often just win. I haven't tried Glimmer of Genius, I'm going to guess it's mediocre in a list like this, but I'll test it a bit!
February 10, 2017 9:27 a.m.
How do you feel about Glint-Nest Crane? I use it in my mono blue version, which I found out from testing is strictly better than Anticipate. The early body is very useful and it's another card you can bounce with Paradoxical Outcome.
February 11, 2017 11:58 p.m.
Seems interesting. The problem with crane is it only hits artifacts, and Anticipate is good because it can also be used to dig for a Paradoxical Outcome. I'll test Glint-Nest Crane out though, as it still seems like it might be good. Thanks!

Have you ever played with Sigarda's Aid? I'm a fan of the stack abuse putting out shields and Bone Saws at instant speed.
February 12, 2017 9:10 a.m.
It just doesn't seem that useful imo. What would it help with exactly?
February 12, 2017 11:58 a.m.
You abuse the stack with instant speed equipment drops. It increases your healing from aetherflux. For instance: you play 4 bone saws sorcery speed you heal 1+2+3+4=10Instant speed you heal4+4+4+4=16 because they all get put on the stack and when they resolve it counts all the cast triggers. That may not be the most abusive example but it's nice to beef up an ornithopter for free at instant speed too if you're desperate.
February 12, 2017 12:09 p.m.
Huh, that seems interesting, but I just don't see it working out too effectively. I'll give it a shot though, as there certainly is potential!
February 12, 2017 12:48 p.m.
Keep me posted on how you like it! I've been toiling with the idea of taking an aetherflux storm to FNM as of late, just to be 'that guy'
February 12, 2017 12:54 p.m.
What would you think about adding Efficient Construction? The 0-drop artifacts would generate thopters like mad and would force your opponents to deal with the extra threat, give you cheap blockers, and give you an alternate wincon.
February 13, 2017 8:53 a.m.
I'm building a RW version of this, but I think you have it right with UW lands being cheaper. I reccomend more 0 and 1 drop spells, there are a total of 3-4 0drop and 4-5 1 drop in standard. Maybe provide an alternate win-con in case you don't draw the Aetherflux? This issue you answered with Whir, which is also cool, but I'd replace Whir with Inventors' Fair, only because 4 mana will have you look for any artifact you need as long as you dropped 3 artifacts already, which is why I would just flood with artifacts and get rid of all the excess card draw (Except Sram)
Overall, Great Deck, don't think much other than Inventors' Fair will help this Awsum deck!

Contraband Kingpin is just scry, but more defensive then Sram. Non-equipment artifact activate his ablility, so you can find key card efficiently. also his health and lifelink is good
Tezzeret's Touch is also good. You can make plan B by attacking 5/5 creature. When you cast Paradoxical Outcome, you can choose Tezzeret's Touch because it is aura, so you can draw one more. Even if opponent destroy 5/5 creature, you get back artifact in hand.
I would appreciate it if you look at my decklist. UB Aetherflux bomb
February 13, 2017 9:34 p.m.
Have you thought about Metallic Rebuke for your counter?
