Tezzerectile disfunction

Modern* Aggro Control U/B (Dimir)

BiggRedd54 Score: 18


Description

This is my version of how tezzeret works with artifacts.. T1: Vault Skirge or Darksteel Axe or Ponder depending on what kind of land I get + Darksteel Relic T2: same idea as turn 1 except sometimes keep mana open for Mana Leak T3: Phylactery Lich T4: Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas , -1 on Vault Skirge or on indestructible artifact and swing for 10 T5: repeat turn 4 T6: Life's Finale or Wurmcoil Engine


UPDATE SIDEBOARD: 8/2/11Added 3x Evil Presence - for Inkmoth Nexus Added 3x Torpor Orb for both infinite life gain and twin comboAdded 2x Memoricide for big guysAdded 3x Steel Sabotage for batterskull decks


UPDATE: FNM 8/6/11Game 1: I played against a mono blue mill..since i have no response to mill i lost 2-0. I added 2x Elixir of Immortality

Game 2: I played against a black zombie deck with use of Lashwrithe and Adaptive Automaton . I won 2-1.

Game 3: I played against a mono black vampires deck. I kept the game controlled, and he got mana screwed one game. I won 2-1

Game 4: I Played against a black control deck with use of Vault Skirge and Lashwrithe . I won that one 2-1 as well after i memoricided his Phyrexian Obliterator .

Game 5: I played against a U/R pyromancer, and whenever he sideboarded a Mass Polymorph deck, i won that series with ease as game 1 he couldnt get any ascensions out, and game two because i memoricided his Emrakul, the Aeons Torn .

We ended up spliting top 8.

As for updates to the deck, i've decided to take out 1x Darksteel Axe and 1x Darksteel Relic , and replaced them with 2x Memoricide . This left 2 slots open in my sideboard, so i added 2xElixir of Immortality .

Ponder is far more cost-effective than Preordain.

What? Ponder is fantastic! Look at 3 cards. If you like them re-arrange them and draw a card. If you don't like them shuffle your library and then draw the card. If that isn't getting rid of dead cards i don't know what is.

How is that not better than preordain? With preordain you are stuck with what you have...sure you can stick them to the bottom and scrying is nice, but if you don't like your cards you can't re-shuffle...you just hope to draw into something after scrying to the bottom. Sometimes taking a chance with a re-shuffle is the better option.

I'm going to have to disagree with ponder, think about it. Ponder allows you a reshuffle incase of a dead scry but at the same time. The shuffle just made you draw a random card. Where preordain's scry draws dead they go to the bottom therefore thining out your deck. Usually mb with 4 and it cycles the deck. Thining out a deck is so important in control. And I think we can all agree this deck is control

I always prefered Preordain I dont like not knowing the top card of my deck and scrying I don't have to completely randomize my deck again.

preordain is the way to go unless you are looking for one card(combo) and people seem to forget how often hawkward situation occur when you want a card you see off ponder but then are forced to leave two dead cards on top...

as for the deck what about running a set of Trinket Mage gives you some more blockers and lets you run less copies of other wise blank cards(Darksteel Relic )

Thats actualy a realy good replacement for when Phylactery Lich cycles out.

BiggRedd54 says... #14

@ Select trinket mage didnt work as well as i thought it would have, can you think of anything else that could replace Phylactery Lich when it cycles out?

SpookyDoom says... #15

No, you use Trinket Mage FOR Phylactery Lich! I'm a preordain guy unless you're a combo deck, and this isn't a combo deck. I'd put Memoricide SB and put more cheap artifacts instead, or Trinket Mages to find 'em. Maybe Elixir of Immortality?

So I just filtered the Gatherer, and for 3 mana or less the best two answers I thought of were Etched Champion and Darksteel Myr . Neither are the 5/5 beatstick a Lich is, but both come with handy protection built in. Downsides that I think of: when the Champion has metalcraft you won't be able to boost it with Tezz, and either way it will take an extra turn to get the damage you need in. On the upside: both will count as a plus for Tezzeret's Ultimate, and when Etched Champion has metalcraft it will be largely unblockable. The other option I came up with is wait to see if Innistrad brings a suitable replacement. Another thought I had is if you do end up adding in more artifact creatures, Stoic Rebuttal may be a good option. I hope this is useful, and good luck. Also +1 on the name as well, I love it.

I actualy added in etched champion a while ago, but the found out just how well it works with tezzeret..so i took him out. i have thought about adding in darksteel myr but if nothing can replace phylactery lich in inndistrad ill just put in darksteel armor. thanks for the score
