Shape Anew

Legacy

Doom_Lich Score: Unrated


Description

This is a deck I've been toying with for a while. It's pretty cheap, and I have most of the cards already.

The main artifact we are using to get rid of is Basilisk Collar. Basically, you use Trinket Mage to grab it on turn 3 and then Shape Anew on turn 4. I figured that would be the best 1 or less drop artifact to use, since even if we don't hit Shape Anew, it's still good.

The backup plan is to drop Precursor Golem, and then cast Shape Anew on it, getting 3 artifacts instead of one. Without a Day of Judgement?!?!?!! 3 of the bomby artifacts is almost always good game.

Time Reversal is used to reset the plan if we get a creature out of Basilisk Collar, but it dies. Normally, that'd just kill the deck, since we don't have fuel anymore. Time Reversal gets the Basilisk Collar back so we can fetch it again with a Trinket Mage, and it also lets us reuse spent Shape Anews.

What about Grand Architect ? Tap down your architect and a couple weenie blue creatures on turn three to drop a Wurmcoil Engine . Thats a pretty big shift from what you got here. Woah wait, what are you using as fuel for the Shape Anew Might I suggest Everflowing Chalice or a Brittle Effigy ? Shape anew is such a sweet card. Ooh. Have you ever tried Sphinx-Bone Wand ? You have enough instants and sorcerys to make it happen.

Okay, I apparently should've explained the body of this deck.

The main artifact we are using to get rid of is Chimeric Mass . Basically, you use Trinket Mage to grab it on turn 3 and then Shape Anew on turn 4. I figured that would be the best 1 or less drop artifact to use, since even if we don't hit Shape Anew , it's still good.

The backup plan is to drop Precursor Golem , and then cast Shape Anew on it, getting 3 artifacts instead of one. Without a day-of-judgement 3 of the bomby artifacts is almost always good game.

The reason I don't run much fuel for Shape Anew , is because the more I run, the more likely it is that I accidentally hit my fuel. So basically almost every artifact in the deck has to be something I'd want to hit.

Time Reversal is used to reset the plan if we get a creature out of Chimeric Mass , but it dies. Normally, that'd just kill the deck, since we don't have fuel anymore. Time Reversal gets the Chimeric Mass back so we can fetch it again with a trinket mage, and it also lets us reuse spent Shape Anews.

Also, as awesome as Sphinx-Bone Wand is, you don't get too many shots to Shape Anew into something, so if the artifact you get doesn't hold down the board totally from the moment it happens, you'll probably die before you get away with it. I originally ran it with Mindslaver , but similarly, it didn't provide enough advantage for the investment.

Just a suggestion, but if you can get your hands on an inkmoth nexus or 4, it would really improve the deck.

It's something that can turn itself into an artifact, and you can shape anew it. And since you have to turn it into an artifact, it wont hit other inkmoths.

So theoretically you could run ONLY your bombs, and shape anew the inkmoths, garunteeing your bomb.

t1-3 control, get hand set up etc. ramp even if you add green is good. t4, tap inkmoth nexus to turn itself into a tapped 1/1 inkmoth artifact creature and shape anew it.

boom blightsteel etc
