Grixis Chandra, (Bolas?) and Tezzeret Improvise

Standard Artifact Competitive Control U/B (Dimir) U/B/R (Grixis) U/R (Izzet)



Artifact (1)



I want to play an Artifact deck by using mainly 3 cards: Herald of Anguish, Chandra, Torch of Defiance and Heart of Kiran.


Main deck

I want to play as soon as possible Herald of Anguish because is a 5/5 flying creatures that forced the opponent to discard a card on each of my endstep, can kill small creatures with his -2/-2 and most of all it have improvvise so I can play it at 4/5 turn and begin to do a lot of damages!

maveric Thopterist is perfect for an improvise deck because it can be played quite fast and comes with 2 1/1 Thopters.

Bastion Inventor is so powerful a 4/4 hexproof with improvise can became letal at 3/4 turn and is protected by everything! So it makes lot of troubles on the board.

As the Maverick Thopterist I have Pia Nalaar that is a "split" card, it comes with the thopter, that helps to increase my "improvise food".

In order to feed the improvvise I put 4 copies of Renegade Map and Servo Schematic that provides me a 1/1 token 2 times and can be tapped without problems. Also vehicles became very usefull for improvise.

Heart of Kiran is one of most powerful cards in this deck because he is a 4/4 with flying and vigilance and can be manovred by most of my creatures and also by my planeswalker!

Aethersphere Harvester is the other vehicle of the deck this is great to put some pressure onto the opponent because I can crew it with everything and sometimes is usefull to gain life.

Key to the City may became usefull in some situation give you the chance to draw a card or to have an imbloccable creature.

I consider my ending cards Herald of Anguish, Bastion Inventor and Heart of Kiran. If I can't be able to play one or more of this I have the -7 of Tezzeret the Schemer and Chandra, Torch of Defiance.

Let's talk about PW:

Chandra, Torch of Defiance is both an aggressive planes and a powerful source of 2 red mana! She can crew the Heart of Kiran thanks to her high loyalty and her emblem is something that is very dangerous for a low mana cost deck! She is a very important card in this deck.

Tezzeret the Schemer is perfect to help me to cast Herald of Anguish, or became a sources of mana or act like a removal-spell. Also his emblem gives me free 5/5!In many games I use it to crew the Heart of Kiran.

I have also added some counter-spell and removal-spell like Fatal Push, Metallic Rebuke and Unlicensed Disintegration.


2 Liliana, the Last Hope is a good removal for small creatures or weaken bigger one and she can also crew the Heart of Kiran one turn before other planes! So for 3 mana is a great choice.

2 Battle at the Bridge that became useful for a deck that plays big creatures and give me some life.

2 Lost Legacy.

2 Incendiary Flow this is for Aggro deck.

2 Tezzeret's Touch.

3 Negate against Control decks.

2 Reverse Engineer.

Hope you like it abd thanks for yours Upvote or Suggestions (that are very appreciated)!
