Description

Cheeky deck aiming to win off of Mechanized Production and investigating (i.e, Clue tokens). The deck works well currently, and handles as though it's just a regular control deck (i.e, counterspells and board wipes). I built this with the intent of a mainly aggro-based meta, and the sideboard is mainly geared for the control matchup. As of 23-1-17, I have the deck out of proxy and is functioning solidly against Red-White Vehicles, Aetherworks Marvel decks, and even Delirium - any answers I don't already have in the main deck are in the sideboard. The best way I can describe how the deck functions....flick spells and get Clue tokens, if you have extra Clues, crack them for card draw and fish for a Mechanized Production or another fishing spell like Anticipate.

THE CLUES

In order for the deck to work, we need a way to generate Clue tokens! We have plenty of ways to do so; if we have to, we use our handy dandy counterspells and if things get really out of hand, we can always cast Fumigate to gain life back and wipe the board:

Thraben Inspector - We run 3 copies, as this card is a solid one-drop and a good turn 1 play, also good for chump blocking.

Jace's Scrutiny - 4 copies to help keep us alive and generate more of those wonderful Clue tokens.

Expose Evil - Again, 4 copies that tap down creatures before attackers are declared and gives us another Clue artifact.

Press for Answers - We only run 2 copies because of Sorcery speed, but this still generates a Clue and taps down an opponent's threat.

Trail of Evidence - 3 copies of this enchantment means that just about everything we do will now generate Clue tokens, more Clues, easier wins! Furthermore, anything that already Investigates, now grants an additional Clue!

What is your wincon? How do you plan on winning in a match? I am not trying to be mean, I am just curious since all I see you investigating for is more clues.

The_Grape we win through the use of Mechanized Production and sheer willpower from our great lord and savior Kek.

Somebody finally makes a "Blues Clues" deck and this is what happens.

Buddy, you have a long way to go.

Grape: the clues are artifacts :) so your board quickly has more than eight artifacts

Oh I know that I just didn't see the mechanized productions in the board first time I looked at this deck.

In my opinion you run a little low on creatures. Maybe try Erdwal Illuminator?

Also, maybe Fleeting Memories for an alternate wincon as you sac your more than 8 clues to dig for the production?

Also, how about Tamiyo's Journal?

This is excellent, I was wondering when someone was going to figure out a way to win with Mechanized Production.

This is a super clever way to do it. +1 for sure.

@Phyrexia Thanks m8 <3

@The_Grape As a control player I scoff at creatures, but you could adjust the deck so that it fits more comfortably for you :)

You cast so many instants. Consider Thing in the Ice  Flip for an win condition as well as bouncing the board once you cast an easy 4 instants/sorceries.

This may be something I consider, thanks!

I've been toying with a similar design and I like Curious Homunculus  Flip

I'm still testing a artifact heavy Inspiring Statuary version

Overall nice deck, my brother had the same idea concerning Mechanized Production. What I don't like about it is the sorcery speed of an enchantment, so the opponent sees it coming and has at least one turn to react. Interaction... Yuk. The only interactions a control deck should have are "No." and "I win." :D

Anyway nice take on it, IMO Disallow instead of Spell Shrivel might be fine mainboard, since you've got a lot of dual lands and Islands, so most of the time you should have UU with 3 mana, and Disallows certainty and flexibility would pay off a lot. Also maybe Dispels instead of Negates in the sideboard, since thats mostly what you need in control and the 1 less could be nice in a counter war against control mirror match. Also I'm not that fond of 1-offs, since they can still do what you dont want them to do (brick, in this case) but dont show up with the consistency you want if you need them. I would probably switch out the Confirm Suspicions for another Fumigate since you've got enough investigate already, really.

But its your deck, just giving some of my opinions, maybe you want to think about it

Edit: Btw there is a way around filthy reaction time: Sigarda's Aid. Since Production is an Aura it gains flash from Aid, so we can flash it in the opponents endstep and watch them cry as we win the game at instant speed >:D

Okay, so besides the guy above beating me to the flash in combo, I have found another suggestion or two since I was last here.

Metallic Rebuke and its counterpart Inspiring Statuary should do much better in this build than say 2 lands and whatever your word counterspell is. I would only do the aid as a one of given the extremely minimal use you get out of it in this deck, but that use is undeniably powerful, so good luck to you.
