Mission Improvise

Standard Artifact Budget

Malikorr


Description

Use of Artifacts as mana supplement. This is my first magic deck ever. I have been playing now for about 3 weeks. I have played in one tournament with a variation of IMPROVISE heavy deck. It worked 50% of the time. Now I am improving upon it starting with getting 2x Herald of Anguish. Any advice is welcome. Thanks!

Go down to 60 cards.

I found you!

Try the following:

Drop 2x Islands, a mountain, and a swamp for a total of just 20 land. If you find that you get mana-starved in play-testing, I would also consider 4x Evolving Wilds instead of basic land which would allow you to search and pull for the color of land you need.

Drop either 2x Ornithopter's or the Bone Saw's. Pull the Gifted Aetherborn's since they don't really fit the theme of the deck. I would also consider coming down to only 2x of Tezzeret's Touch. Put the Scrap Trawler's in your sideboard instead of your mainboard. I would either run the full set of Freejam Regent and drop your demon, or go half and half with 2x of him and 2x of the Herald of Anguish. That would bring your card count down to 62, which is a little bit more manageable.

With this setup, I see Reverse Engineer as the only real problem with this deck since it requires 2x blue mana. Freejam and Herald also require 2x of their color, but they're late-game players which you're trying to make sure you get out as closer's for you game. Reverse Engineer is kind of a "back up" card if your hand-size gets low and does better in the sideboard since you can get a feel for your opponents deck and pull it in if they're also playing a longer game. I would put in Metallic Rebuke instead since it's a very fast and sneaky card with it's improvise function and is much better early in the game; you slow your opponent down by countering his spells while you prep for your own bigger creatures.

I would consider adding Pia Nalaar since she also adds a thopter artifact creature and is an Artificer which would give you three creatures to use Inventor's Goggles on. I'm a big fan of Filigree Familiar and if you're thinking of adding it, I would pull the Ornithopter's altogether in favor of that more productive creature.

See my own improvise deck for other ideas Tezzeret likes to touch things. +1 for finally getting on this site and publishing your first deck :)
