Domo Arigato Mr. Roboto

Modern Affinity Aggro Artifact

Ohthenoises Score: 42


Boop Beep Boop!

Super fast robot build. Nom Nom

Turn two Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas is a go. Also, turn 2 Cranial Plating on a Ornithopter is a go as well.

I replaced Thoughtseize with Duress as a more budget friendly alternative.



This is a deck I found after a bit of digging online and I found that it took second at an event somewhere and it looked like fun, so I took it and made a few tweaks of my own (such as bumping out Blinkmoth Nexus for Inkmoth Nexus and dropping Thoughtseize for Duress).

Rolled up comments.

I just recently acquired 4x Arcbound Ravager s and with them a play set of Disciple of the Vault . With the ravager as a sac outlet I'd like to add those disciples in.

-2 Signal Pest s

-2 Vault Skirge s


-4 Signal Pest s


+4 Disciple of the Vault s?

I'm not entirely sure which are most important to the deck to sorry if I'm suggesting something silly :P

Disciple of the Vault isn't needed in the modern variation of Affinity; as it gears towards stealing early wins by being overly aggressive. Plus, taking out Signal Pest would make games where you don't see Cranial Plating much worse. Also, taking out Vault Skirge would be bad, as pairing it up with Cranial Plating makes its lifelink near impossible to race.

Have you considered Master of Etherium , since your geared towards blue already?

I have considered Master of Etherium as I used to have him for Arcbound Ravager but I found that a cmc of 3 was just a bit too much to ask. Also, ravager pairs better with Etched Champion better than Master of Etherium .

Spot removal and generic damage to all creatures (like a Pyroclasm ) really hurts this deck, I would definitely recommend Steel Overseer or a Master of Etherium .

Spot removal and mass damage really hurt any aggro deck. However, Arcbound Ravager can ensure that I get the most out of a bad situation.

For example, you cast Pyroclasm and I use him to gobble up anything that wouldn't survive thus allowing him to survive. If you cast Doom Blade I'd simply eat your target. If your target is him then I can sac him to his own ability and move the counters to something relevant like Etched Champion . Master of Etherium and Steel Overseer don't provide that kind of flexibility.

Up until recently I was running Master of Etherium and he was fine but easily blocked and easily dealt with. While Arcbound Ravager is still easy to block it's kind of like trying to nail jello to the wall as I can, at will, shift counters to an unblocked creature like Vault Skirge .

Finally, a single Master of Etherium doesn't help against mass damage. He would put their toughness at 2 which still dies to a lot of removal like Pyroclasm .

-1 Memnite +1 Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas .

Memnite is expendable whereas Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas is a powerhouse, oftentimes -4ing for a 10 point shift or more. (Most times his -4 is a solid win.)

I have my own affinity deck, Massive Dynamics but im focused on multiplayer game. If you can drop by and gimme some suggestions I would appreciate. By the way, +1 for the aggro deck!

I highly recommend some Nim in here they are absolutely a blast to play with! Back with my Mirrodin Affinity deck they would just beat down the opponent and you don't need those plates to make tem lethal. Nim Lasher Nim Shrieker Mephitic Ooze Hunger of the Nim Runng Blue I'd say Broodstar would love to be here he'd nearly always be uber cheap with affinity and hitting hard.

No way DukeNicky. Cranial Plating can be attached at instant speed to a non blocked creature resulting in DEATH by a massive Falcon punch

Obviously I know that however it's is always good to have a back up plan, you could not have the lands, you could have the artifact destroyed

Ohthenoises says... #12

The Nim are not artifacts so that hurts my game plan, the Nim are also slow. I already have 2 backup plans. Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas turns control decks into Swiss Cheese by letting me essentially draw 2 cards per turn, then ult him continuously and Inkmoth Nexus dodges sorcery speed removal and, when strapped with a Cranial Plating or hit by Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas ' -2 OR Arcbound Ravager 's Modular counters, can end the game in 1-2 swings.

So the new legend rule makes me happy as hell here...... So dumb..... (By dumb I mean good.)

gonna buy another Mox Opal

So, I was solitareing this to show some people at my local shop how affinity plays. It's been a while since I've played it so as I'm playing I get out Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas and +1 him. Next turn I ult him, declaring 7 life lost. Someone corrected me about the fact that he states that the number for X is 2 times the artifacts not 1 times and I was blown away.

I had forgotten what his Ult does and it makes me love Tezzeret so much more.

DukeNicky says... #16

Lol yea his Ult is bonkers, if he's allowed to live 1round your done

Is there a legit replacement for Mox Opal if I want to feed my family this month?

Ohthenoises says... #18

Paradise Mantle is as close as you're going to get but it's REALLY sub par.

Crazybop09 says... #19

Ohthenoises do you think this build is as good as net deck affinity decks? and if so, why?

June 29, 2014 10:45 p.m.

tyforthevenom says... #20

i'd say Paradise Mantle is more a replacement for Springleaf Drum at best

October 10, 2014 10:52 a.m.

Ohthenoises says... #21

tyforthevenom Springleaf Drum is much better. It doesn't care about haste and it doesn't have to be equipped.
