I'm Just A Kor Boy, I Pay No Equipment Fees

Legacy Aggro Artifact Mono-White




I'm just a Kor boy,
I pay no equipment fees,
There's a little shift,
From my cloud,
Stoneforge Mystic,
Even though it's not allowed.
As long as I have my Paladin,
Equip costs don't really matter to me,
To me.....

This is just an idea that I've been tossing around for awhile because I've always wanted to build a Kor deck around Stoneforge Mystic. With cards like Cloudshift to combo with Stoneforge Mystic and Kor Outfitter , I just couldn't resist.
Feel free to let me know your thoughts and suggestions. I'm not 100% sure what equipment I want to put in here, so everything you see right now is off the top of my head.

This is technically a modern deck, but I have labeled it as Legacy since a few of the cards are banned in Modern.

Momma, just killed a creature,
Equipped a sword to my Kor,
Entered attack phase, his blockers are no more,
Momma, I swear this game just begun,
But I've already gone and blown my opponents awaaaay!

Maybe 2x Conjurer's Closet to combo with the mystic?

I do like the idea of the Conjurer's Closet . I had also considered the thought of splashing in blue so I could use my 2x Venser, the Sojourner .

What do you think about running some Glacial Fortress or Hallowed Fountain so I'm able to include Venser, the Sojourner ?

also maybe protection with Swiftfoot Boots ? And lastly... what about Loxodon Punisher and Kemba, Kha Regent ?

April 4, 2013 9:50 a.m.

GoTeamJosh says... #14

Yes, Loxodon Warhammer is pretty much a necessity. The only problem is that mine are all currently in use with other decks :) If I can pick some up soon, then definitely. As for Umezawa's Jitte , too pricey right now.

You probably know this, but Stoneforge Mystic and Ancient Den are not modern legal.

April 4, 2013 9:53 a.m.

GoTeamJosh says... #16

Yes. I have a little disclaimer in the description about that. I guess I could change this show up under the Casual category instead if it's an issue.

Aelorith2117, I like Loxodon Punisher but I think that Armament Master would be more effective in this deck since most of the creatures are Kor and his +2+2 effect is more global. Swiftfoot Boots is definitely a good piece of equipment to consider. Well, that one or Lightning Greaves .

Aelorith2117 says... #18

Lightning Greaves is rough in an equipment deck since you have to unequip it if you want to equip something else... leaving your creature open to removal...

GoTeamJosh says... #19

This is true. Plus, Swiftfoot Boots is a little bit easier on the wallet.

I played a Kor deck in standard after Worldwake came out, and Kor Skyfisher was great in it. It lets you reuse the Stoneforges or the Outfitters as you see fit, and a 2/3 flyer for 2 is nothing to scoff at.

April 4, 2013 3:44 p.m.

GoTeamJosh says... #21

Good idea. Once I get the deck rolling, I'll probably test the Kor Skyfisher in place of the Kitesail Apprentice to see if one is better.

Kemba, Kha Regent has great synergy wit Puresteel Paladin . You might want to consider Mox Opal too, its a great to accelerator to get your deck moving a little quicker.

Overall, cool deck, +1

GoTeamJosh says... #23

I love Kemba, Kha Regent but I can't decide if I want to break away from the Kor theme or not. Once I get my hands on 2x Kemba, Kha Regent , I'll probably run some tests with it. As for Mox Opal , I'm not sure if I want to drop that much money on them XD

I love the deck and the idea behind it. The deck is definitely whack-and-do silly, which I love, but I would add Isochron Scepter . Only because it helps with unlimited Cloudshift Stoneforge Mystic combo. This way you don't have to add 5 drops like Conjurer's Closet or Venser, the Sojourner . Then again it is your deck so you can do whatever you want with it, but that is how I would run it. That way you are not worrying over land base or turn 5 plays. Just a suggestion. Overall, fun-looking deck. I am going to take this to FNM tonight and see how it plays. +1

GoTeamJosh says... #25

MagicDC, I really like the idea of Isochron Scepter in this deck! I'm so used to seeing it combined with Counterspell that it didn't even cross my mind to combo it with Cloudshift . Awesome idea.

A non stoneforge take: An Equipped Kor is a Happy Kor

Venser it up, his plus 2 and -1 are both great for this deck, and well hiis ultimate is... ultimate.... wouldnt be had, just add some dual lands and maybe 1 island just in case.

GoTeamJosh says... #28

AzrielBarakiel - I'll actually be testing this deck for the first time today. Right now, I'm running it without Venser, the Sojourner but I'll probably put him in sometime before the end of the week just to see the difference. I think Venser would really help the deck.

i suggest Steelshaper's Gift to tutor out many f your better artifacts to be able to use Stoneforge's ability. I also suggest really low cost artifacts/equipments, like Shuko and Bone Saw

April 9, 2013 10:29 a.m.

GoTeamJosh says... #31

I would like to have 2x Steelshaper's Gift for this deck, but I don't own any yet. I played about 3-4 games with the deck yesterday and didn't have any issues with getting to the equipment that I needed.

April 9, 2013 11:23 a.m.

It's just speedy equipment to abuse with Puresteel's last ability

The 2 Kor Aeronaut are good in limited, but certainly not in legacy xDPut in 2 additional Kor Duelist . You equipment would be much more aggressive with Bonesplitter and Grafted Wargear , both equipments make every creature into a threat for very little to no mana ; )

April 12, 2013 10:14 a.m.

A_Magikarp says... #34

Yeah, I find running 4x Kor Duelist works really well for a Kor deck, because with the low cost equipment I can usually be swinging a 3/1 Double Strike T2 when they don't even have a creature out. Trusty Machete , Bonesplitter , and Darksteel Axe are great low costing equipment. Sword of Vengeance is also a favorite of mine. :)
