Esper Servos (Ixalan Updated]

Standard* Tokens W/U/B (Esper)




This deck creates a lot of tokens with the help of Anointed Procession using cards like Animation Module + Metallic Mimic , Sram's Expertise, Servo Exhibition and of course Servo Schematic.

Chief of the Foundry buffs them with +1/+1. Keep in mind that servos will enter the battlefield not as 1/1s because of Metallic Mimic and/or Chief of the Foundry. They can be much more powerful then you would expect. If this is not enough the planeswalker ability of Tezzeret the Schemer or his mighty touch will do the rest for you.

Tezzeret's Touch for example can be played on every given artifact but i suggest you to take one of the Metallic Mimic or Servo Schematic :)

But maybe you choose to beat your oppent with Mechanized Production?! Or with the Throne of the God-Pharaoh?! This is up to you now ...

Here is a video of my last opponent for example.

Try this deck you will not regret it...

Have fun with it as much as i had so far !

Fatal Push at 3 or 4? Also personally like Chief of the Foundry more than trinketeer since you hardly pay the 4 for a thopter, 2/3 statline is better than 3/2, and multiple buff each other.

Totally have to agree with you on that. I put Master Trinketeer back to Maybeboard since there is a lot more u can do in this deck then use Master Trinketeer ability for 4 Mana.

I'm not sure about Fatal Push because i didn't had that much of a problem with creature based decks. Hope you don't mind if i put it into Maybeboard until i know which cards to cut for it? :)

24 lands minimum

@taiga277677 You say 24... and I say here we go :)

frands24 says... #7

@Ampa-GER I agree with you. No need to run the full 24 lands. I say playtest it a bit more, and if you end up mana screwed too often maybe plop in an additional land.

August 12, 2017 5:29 p.m.

Ampa-GER says... #8

@frands24True true... but I changed it to 24... everybody should be pleased now :P

Will shorten manabase for new cards later... just see them as "placeholders" :)

Ampa-GER says... #9

haha or 23... i was like... there is no way around this, i have to take Hidden Stockpile :D

Did you think about putting a panharmonicon in here? I think that it would a bit overkill, but then you have another bonus for your deck, otherwise I like it

Ampa-GER says... #11

@Shmobley9 The first version was running it but because it was a 4 mana drop i had to cut it for other cards. thanks for the reminder... i'll put it back to maybeboard... i forget about that :)

But i'm sure we find a way to fit it into mainboard soon ...I'll cut a hidden stockpile maybe :)

August 15, 2017 4:55 p.m.

Shmobley9 says... #13

Cool, just checking since it is a decent card

chalto says... #15

Love it! Tried to do something like this before but didn't quite work out for me. Love the Esper colors, and best of all, its like 95% rotation proof! Gotta ask, what do you usually do with the Mirage Mirror?

August 31, 2017 11:43 a.m.

Ampa-GER says... #17

@chalto First of all I appreciate that you like it.

You can use Mirage Mirror in different ways. For example, you can copy a Metallic Mimic or Chief of the Foundry and let more servos and or Mimics enter the battlefield.You can also use it to trigger Animation Module ability again which allows to create a lot of more servos if you have enough Mana :)

You can copy one artifact which has been enchanted with Tezzeret's Touch and attack. You can copy one Anointed Procession and create twice as many servos. If you have Hidden Stockpile in play and a permanent leaves your battlefield it creates also two servos.

I thought this card is a nice addition to this deck and i'm just fooling arround with it maybe there are much better combos :)

September 9, 2017 9:07 a.m.

Why is Servo Schematic in there in place of Cogworker's Puzzleknot? They're essentially the same, except puzzleknot gives you the ability to pay to sac it. As far as I can tell, you have no sac outlet for Schematic. Also helps trigger Stockpile.

September 9, 2017 11:09 a.m.

Ampa-GER says... #20


It's because you will enchant it with Tezzeret's Touch and if it's leaving battlefield you'll get it back on hand plus another servo right ? No need to sacrifice it then... But if you prefer Cogworker's instead feel free to use it :P

September 9, 2017 12:23 p.m.

Ampa-GER says... #21

BTW...You made me think about this again. It would also help to trigger Animation Module + Metallic Mimic combo. In that case, i'll have to agree with you :) But i guess it's just a personal preference. Both do fine in here ;)

This deck looks awesome, but the next standard rotation will really screw up your land distribution. Luckily you can stick Glacial Fortress and Drowned Catacomb in place of your Port Town and Choked Estuary, but what about your Westvale Abbey  Flip?

September 12, 2017 10 a.m.

Ampa-GER says... #24

@Hyperalgialysis They are realy nice but i don't think they will fit in here.

@arice332534Well, this is realy good question, still gives me a headache. There is nothing like it in Ixalan...Primal AmuletPrimal Amulet looks nice with Animation Module or Treasure Map with Anointed Procession Treasure Map / Treasure CoveThis one could be also worth a try Angel's Blood FastMaybe ?enter image description here

but i will have to drop something for it cause otherwise this deck has 21/22 Mana...

Maybe we will find something in Explorers of Ixalan :(

September 12, 2017 6:02 p.m.

They both become 5/5 fliers when enchanted. I understand if they don't fit with the theme but the Heart of Kiran also getting vigilance seems relevant. To each his own.

September 12, 2017 6:13 p.m.

Ampa-GER says... #26

@Hyperalgialysis I added Heart of Kiran to maybeboard since i don't know which card i replace for it. Maybe one Servo Schematic?!

September 12, 2017 6:23 p.m.

Ampa-GER says... #27

@arice332534 I guess i'll take Scavenger Grounds just as placeholder for Westvale Abbey  Flip ;)

September 12, 2017 6:26 p.m.

Ampa-GER says... #28


I replaced one Servo Schematic ...Thank you for your suggestion :)

September 12, 2017 6:31 p.m.

That seems like a good choice. A lot of people don't realize Tezzeret's Touch works like that with vehicles. I ran it in a dimir shell based around tezzeret.

But explorer's of ixalan isn't going to be standard... its not part of the ixalan block

@taiga277677 Hehe... yeah never mind... maybe in Rivals of Ixalan then :P

Just a heads up Dispell isnt in standard.

October 12, 2017 7:48 p.m.

Ampa-GER says... #33

Thank you for reminding me on that one. Haven't changed it yet...

October 12, 2017 8:17 p.m.

taiga277677 says... #34

Dispel is gone, but we at least have Spell Pierce :x

taiga277677 +1 Added :)

Skinken says... #36

Wow i love this. I have previously played bw servos, and I don't really get how you run only 2 copies of Hidden Stockpile. It's such a strong engine card, I would play it over Servo Exhibition every day. I would also swap some lands for Renegade Map. With close to no 1-drops, it's Evolving Wilds that just happen to also be an artifact for tezz and his touch xD

October 19, 2017 7:03 p.m.

Been awhile since I checked out this list. Have you considered Marionette Master and that enchantment that kicks out treasure each turn? Both seem like they might be decent, not really a suggestion but might be worth a look. Also someone at my lgs runs Inspiring Statuary in an orzhov build of this and it works amazing. Again just curious if you had tinkered with them.

October 20, 2017 2:06 a.m.

Ampa-GER says... #38


You are totaly right. I will change it definitely today :)

October 24, 2017 6:57 a.m.

Ampa-GER says... #39


Again, thank you for your feedback :)

I sure will tinker around with Marionette Master this week. Which enchantment? Do you mean Revel in Riches?

Probably you can't see it but in some older revisions i had indeed Inspiring Statuary. I haven't forgot it since it is still in my Maybeboard. But I will test different builds with it too...
