Hey man i like this idea. i had a similar deck build in mind. im brewing with ensoul artifact, shrapnel blast, darksteel citadels, chief engineer, and ornithopters. i think i like adding the scuttle engine as well. I was also thinking about illusory angels and quicklings. You could potentially play the engine turn 3 with convoke and the servant and ornithopter. Which seems good, im still brewing, anyways +1

I really like Illusory Angel as something to make your thopters and springleafs even more worthwhile. Astral Cornucopia also seems like a solid artifact as is can cast for 0to be an ensoul or shrapnel blast target as well as the fact that it can help accelerate into the doom engine and the soul. In any event +1

I would cut -2 Soul of New Phyrexia . It is a win more card. Scuttling Doom Engine is our ticket to victory. -4 Springleaf Drum I don't see any point at all to this card in our deck. We have Darksteel Citadel and Ornithopter for convoke and Shrapnel Blast targets. -2 Military Intelligence , this simple isn't a playable card. We're not playing weenie, we're going a lot faster than that. Now I would definitely add +3 Phyrexian Revoker . This card works so hard for us. It turns off all the baddies while working for Chief Engineer , Shrapnel Blast , and Ensoul Artifact . +1 Hammer of Purphoros another hard working card acting as a provider for all our win cons. +2 Hour of Need for more evasion and evolving our late game Generator Servant and Ornithopter . Lastly you can add +2 Rapid Hybridization for removal and triggering our Scuttling Doom Engine when our opponents try to exile them. Hope some of this helps.

I agree with everything you said except Hour of Need. I just rubs me the wrong way.

Electric What are you're thoughts on sideboard cards?

2 dispel3 gainsay4 negate2 izzet charm2 domestication2 cyclonic rift

could be a solid sideboard

i would strongly recommend keranos in the mainboard as a 2-3 of card, you have absolutely no draw power in a deck built around winning by blowing up its own cards

Electric says... #7

@The Doctor Some combination of removal. My deck is a slightly different build so my side is obviously going to be different. Being what it is, in this build I would run 4 Mizzium Skin , 4 Shock , 3 Negate , 2 Curse of the Swine , and 2 Gainsay .

I've been messing with Stoke the Flames and Annul in the side. If artifact convoke decks become big in the meta, I think Negate should be swapped for Annul . Until then, I like a two mana counter that hits both planeswalkers and Sphinx's Revelation .

You may want to consider putting in Arbiter of the Ideal , just because it gives you free artifacts, and then also, you can potentially have it on turn four with haste, with Generator Servant .

How has goblin kaboomist been working for you?

July 21, 2014 6:16 p.m.

The Doctor says... #10

pretty well so far. gives me targets for ensoul artifact and shrapnel blast even if it dies, and the landmines are convenient regardless.

IonImplant says... #11

I love the M15 artifact concept but have struggled during playtest with exile enchantments Banishing Light , Chained to the Rocks , Detention Sphere etc... bouncing Scuttling Doom Engine and Darksteel Citadel with Ensoul Artifact . I can run counter spells but once these hit I haven't found an effective way around them. I've thought about splashing green or white but would rather not have to eal with the mana problems for just a couple of cards

July 24, 2014 9:18 a.m.

The Doctor says... #12

Control is definitely the worst matchup for this deck. I personally haven't found an effective method of dealing with control aside from throwing Jace, Memory Adept into the sideboard, or simply bum rushing them too fast.

Tends to happen with aggro, though. If you don't get the steam rolling, it stops pumping.

BTCasias says... #13

this is one of the best versions i have seen of this deck type.

i have one suggestion to switch out the Soul of New Phyrexia for two Volatile Rig because it blows up and comes out a turn before Scuttling Doom Engine and works great with Shrapnel Blast

July 24, 2014 5:28 p.m.

killroy726 says... #14

Have you thought of Peel from Reality ? It works great when Ornithopter is one of the two targets

July 28, 2014 9:54 p.m.

The Doctor says... #15

Good idea, but I may as well use Cyclonic Rift .

July 28, 2014 10:18 p.m.

3n3rgy2 says... #16

This is what I came up with for an aggro archetype!Kaboomifacts! It runs pretty well I just feel like its missing SOMETHING although i'm not quite sure what it is... Anyone have suggestions?

July 29, 2014 12:44 a.m.

The Doctor says... #17

I feel like the one thing it's missing is an efficient card draw. For example Affinity has Thoughtcast while we haven't got anything like that.

July 29, 2014 4:37 a.m.

3n3rgy2 says... #18

I was thinking of running bident of thassa and also izzet charm and Jace can kind of help me refresh my hand. Any suggestions for card draw?

With bident i can ensoul it or I can use military intelligence. If worst comes to worst I can run divination

July 29, 2014 12:01 p.m.

SpaderAce says... #19

The new Jace, the Living Guildpact is really efficient for these types of tempo decks since he has the bounce and his + is practically drawing a card because he gets rid of the potential land draw that you usually don't want at that point in the game. At least try him I'd say

Until RtR rotates I feel that AoT is a much better option.

daveandkenz says... #21

How do you feel about Chandra, Pyromaster ? I could see her doing good in the right situation, but I need another opinion before I can tell if I like it. Lol.

August 5, 2014 3:44 p.m.

The Doctor says... #22

It would make some things essentially free top decks, such as Ornithopter .

August 5, 2014 5:12 p.m.

I like the deck, my version is post rotation, would you care to take a look at it and let me know what you think please: Han Ensoulo's Millennium Ornithopter

Howl of the Horde with Shrapnel Blast brah! You just choose new targets, you don't sacrifice additional creatures. Do that on a Scuttling Doom Engine = welcome to 21 damage with 5 mana

September 16, 2014 8:46 a.m.

The Doctor says... #26

I'm not so sure that works, as Shrapnel Blast requires the additional cost of a sacrifice to be played.

September 16, 2014 3:03 p.m.

xarop_pa_toss says... #27

No, not with Howl of the Horde . If you read it carefully, it doesn't say you CAST it with new targets. You just make copies of it and choose new targets. It has already been cast, you are just copying it. Also, they can not be countered because they are not being cast. Only the original spell can, so it is a legal move and I have used it more than once :)

September 25, 2014 10:44 a.m.

xarop_pa_toss says... #28

Only if it said on Shrapnel Blast "sacrifice an artifact. deal 5 damage to target creature or player" would you have to sacrifice one or two additional creatures. Since it is "additional cost to CAST" you have to sacrifice to cast, if you don't, you can't even cast it. For that reason, if it gets countered, you still sacrifice an artifact, It's like Genesis Hydra , even if it's countered, you get to do the deck searching effect

You should update this awesome deck!

The Doctor says... #30

As fun as this deck is, it's horribly inconsistent and I've dropped development on it.

I'm currently developing an Esper Control deck and will update with that within the next couple of days.
