Tezzeret Artifcat Modified




This is the first serious deck I have made. I purchased the Tezzeret Planeswalker deck and decided to make some modifications. I used some ideas from some other modified Tezzeret decks to come up with this list. My idea was building around Herald of Anguish but I felt like running 4 was a little to much. I have been considering adding Inspiring Statuary and maybe Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger or another big body. I also don't know if running Ornithopter and Bone Saw is worth it, as Herald of Anguish is my only threat with improvise. Chief of the Foundry buffs them, but I don't know if he is good enough or not. I am very new to deck building so any input would be very helpful!

EDIT: I've been thinking about what I mentioned above about not running Ornithopter and Bone Saw. Since the deck is built around Herald of Anguish it would probably be a good idea to run them.

Im gonna suggest a couple small edits.

First I would make room for Metallic Rebuke. This is the best hard counter spell for your deck. You can easily tap down an artifact that you aren't using to help with the mana cost, servo schematic is the option I'm thinking of.

Second, you should increase your planeswalker count. Tezzeret the Schemer is great in this deck because he gives you artifacts and works wonderfully with most of the deck.

Third, you could probably make an interesting combo using Scrap Trawler and Resourceful Return. Just keep bringing back your creatures.

I agree that Chief of the Foundry is great but there are better options to play. Metallic Rebuke, Battle at the Bridge, Metallurgic Summonings are all great cards that play well in a tezz deck.

As far as what to drop, Chief of the foundry, maybe Merchant's Dockhand (I tried him in my deck and it didn't work well), and Implement of Examination.

The implement would be great late game but think of what you could do with 3 mana. You can play an artifact that doesn't progress your board or you can play tezzeret's touch, scrap trawler, Tezzeret's Simulacrum, Metallic Rebuke, Battle at the Bridge.... You get it. I know that the extra draw is great, especially if you use the sacrifice ability on your opponents turn, but for 4 mana you could also play Glimmer of Genius which plays much much better. Or even Anticipate which is almost as good.

No problem. Good luck! If you want to see a more control based version of the deck you can check out mine. It does well against everything if you have good timing.

Cathar's Shield could replace orinthopter. Have you considered Bastion Inventor or Key to the City? A 4/4 hexproof is really good in this deck when you consider it could hit the board turn 3 or sooner. Key to the City would make a creature unblockable and help with draw when used for improvise or Merchant's Dockhand.

Definitely don't drop ornithopter for Cathar's shield. Having a flying walls for 0 mana will always beat a blank artifact. It's not a bad idea to try but I tried it and ornithopter plays SO much better every time.

I did some play testing with this list and having a 5/5 flyer on turn 3 with Ornithopter and Tezzeret's Touch is just to good to pass up! I Feel like it still needs more cycle. I played about 4 matches and never drew Herald of Anguish. Maybe my luck is just bad. Running Fortuitous Find would make me feel more comfortable running Treasure Keeper. I always feel like im going to mill a Herald with it lol.
