Top rank #3! on 2016-09-16

This is my Equipment Based White Kor deck. Get at least 3 artifact (equipment) out and Puresteel Paladin so that all equip cost are 0. Then get out Armament Master out and Kor Skyfisher or Kitesail Apprentice equip as many equipments to Armament Master and equip Captain's Claws to Kor Skyfisher or Kitesail Apprentice and swing. Now Kor Skyfisher and Kitesail Apprentice and the 1/1 kor token (from Captain's Claws ) both get +2/+2 for each equipment attached to Armament Master.

Puresteel Paladin is great card advantage for the deck. Dispatch is probably the best removal in the game when paired with 3 artifact, which with this deck is very easy to get off. Kor Skyfisher is a great finisher to have because it can fly right over most people and you can bounce an equipment back and replay it for more card draw.

Thank You for looking!


I have been play testing with Darksteel Citadel but am finding that it doesn't always help with getting metalcraft out quicker, and in most games I would rather have it as a plains, due to the number of white symbols in my creatures.

I believe you deck would find useful is 4 Sigarda's Aids. I'm not trying to say get rid of Puresteel Paladins; both do work and can ensure equips aren't bogging you down with their costs. But furthermore the enchantment lets you get out any equipment at instant speed.

I really like your deck and would like to know its record.

Hello cmsrDPM, Thanks for the suggestion, and I do agree with adding Sigarda's Aid. I am very glad that you like this deck as much as I. I am unsure of what is record is because I really just play with some friends, not really any Monday Night Moderns.

Very cool list. Have you considered Kor Duelist? Also, I'm curious what Paradise Mantle does for you here rather than cards like Bone Saw. Is it to make sure you consistently have enough mana to equip stuff while also having enough artifacts to trigger metalcraft on Puresteel Paladin?

Hello WhisperingBlade , Thank you for the advise!

I have Considered Kor Duelist and to tell the truth I had him in my first deck list and after play, I didn't like it in the deck. I also had Bone Saw in the deck at first as well, but because I try to equip it to Armament Master it didn't really help that much, and I really like to equip Paradise Mantle and tap for mana if needed.

OOBS says... #5

Yeah, after suggesting Kor Duelist, I realized there was probably nothing I would take out. I was thinking that Kor Outfitter would probably be the switch, and then realized Kor Outfitter probably does WORK for you. That and I thought you might need to up the number of T1 plays, and realized you effectively have 16. And that makes sense for Paradise Mantle. A little mana acceleration (or at least a free 2/2 to all of your kor) definitely seems more solid than something like Bone Saw.

If you have Steelshapers Gift already, you might consider a 1-of Sword of the Animist. If Sigarda's Aid is out it's a 2-mana rampant growth + pump, and sticks around.

Love the deck though, looking to build something similar once Stone Haven Outfitter rotates from Standard

Hello Citridon , Thank you for the sugestion!

I do like Sword of the Animist and I am courious to see how it will work in the deck. I am going to play test it in. Ane then go from there.

You might try Ornithopters instead of Kitesail Apprentice. The Ornithopters will help with speed and artifacts for metalcraft and once you equip them, they will become strong flyers. I've been working on a similar legacy deck Armed And Dangerous. You could also look into replacing Armament Master with Auriok Steelshaper. Auriok Steelshaper will add a similar benefit and reduce your equip costs. My suggestions kind of mess with the Kor theme, but hopefully they're helpful.

Hello sad_2980 , Thank you for the suggestion, but I feel Ornithopter and Auriok Steelshaper don't have the nearly the same synergy as Armament Master and Kitesail Apprentice. Thank You though for the advise.

Kor Duelist is a fun toy in conjunction with equipment. I agree with Stone Haven Outfitter as well.

Mask of Avacyn might help keep Armament Master around longer

September 13, 2016 8:59 p.m.

Hello frogkill45, I agree with Mask of Avacyn. I think I will remove Ogre's Cleaver for it. Thanks For the Suggestion!

also you could add fetch lands like Flooded Strand and Windswept Heath it would add consistence as when you fetch you lower your deck size by one and you only have basics so you would only be losing 1 life instead of the usual 3 life that most modern decks lose when they fetch into shock land.

September 13, 2016 11:21 p.m.

Eric1827 says... #18

also you could add Accorder's Shield Cathar's Shield which cost no mana to play and act as cantrip's with Puresteel Paladin, but unlike Bone Saw they have a keyword called vigilance while at the same time protecting the creature from Lightning Bolt worth of damage. you could also add Kor Firewalker for you sideboard for Red deck wins if its a problem in you LGS. it would act as an unblockable 2/2 in this match up while giving you lifegain.

Acmegamewerks says... #19

Hello Eric1827, I was thinking about Emeria, The Sky Ruin but I like to run my deck more aggro, and well it enters taped. I also Like the shields, but in play testing the Bone Saws were nice because I could attack with more damage early game. But that said, I think that the shield will be added to my side board. And Basilisk Collar is a great card and I want to see how is runs in the deck with some play testing. Thanks for the suggestions!

Nice deck. May I suggest Cranial Plating. I feel it might work well for you.

Ephemeral Shields was also looking at this maybe you might find it useful, wont cost anything if you can just tap 2 guys

I have the love for some kor. check out my deck (also just play it casually in group games) I know acient den isn't modern legal but its just casual so no one complains. Kor team alpha

Mirrorworks and Prototype Portal

I used these in a colourless Myr/Artifact deck.... They might be interesting thoughts for in here? Puresteel works nice with them.

Dredgar says... #24

You could give Kor Aeronaut a try. It does cost one more but you can kick it to give one of your Armament Master flying till end of turn.

September 17, 2016 11:04 p.m.

Darksteel Citadel can help with hitting metalcraft early on, Honor of the Pure helps make tokens more potent. There's not a huge token theme but Intangible Virtue could potentially fit. Leonin Shikari is fun but may be too gimmicky for this deck. Since all your creatures are Kor a couple Cavern of Souls could help if you play against many blue mages. Maybe Apostle's Blessing for sideboard too. Oh, some removal at least in the sideboard would help, Path to Exile and Declaration in Stone always good options.

You should throw together a sideboard, things like Rest in Peace and Ghostly Prison are almost auto-includes.

You may want to drop 1 Steelshaper's Gift in lieu of a singleton of an anthem or removal spell. Also consider ways to overcome anti-white and anti-artifact cards that are commonly played like Stormbreath Dragon, Creeping Corrosion or Ancient Grudge.

Nice deck, looks fun. +1!!

Hi I am really interested in this deck. I love the style. Do you think there's a route for upgrades after buying this? If there is what do you recommend? Cards in the Maybeboard could be upgrades?

October 18, 2016 4:38 p.m.

Acmegamewerks says... #28

Hello SAiNTP4bLO, I am very pleased that you like my deck. And yes there is an upgrade path, I my self hope to upgrade it as time goes by and I have the money to do so. Some of the upgrades include: Cavern of Souls so your important creatures don't get countered, Basilisk Collar, Leonin Shikari, and fetch lands like Flooded Strand and Windswept Heath to cycle through your deck. Hope this can help!

October 18, 2016 4:55 p.m.

SAiNTP4bLO says... #29

Thank you for the reply! I am really looking forward to buy this deck and upgrade it as times goes by also. Thanks for the awesome tips.

Do you think there is a place for Elspeth, Knight-errant in this deck?

October 26, 2016 1:37 a.m.

Sgt_St0n3r says... #31

Hey I really love this deck it's simple yet effective :) what do you think of this replacing Swiftfoot Boots for Haunted Cloak? It costs one more but I think the hexproof is more a sideboard option. I see you say you only really play with friends so hexproof may help, but personally I think you could get more use out of vigilance and trample. Either way + from me :)

Acmegamewerks says... #32

Hello Sgt_St0n3r, I am very glad that you like the deck. I originally had Swiftfoot Boots in my sideboard, but I found that I every game I played I put in Swiftfoot Boots game two. So i decided to mainboard it and it has been working very well. I have recently changed boots to Lightning Greaves.

November 21, 2016 4:32 a.m.

Acmegamewerks says... #33

hey SAiNTP4bLO, I think there could be a home for Elspeth, Knight-Errant in the deck, but it mainly depends on the meta. It does have the downside that it produces soldiers not kor... and the deck buffs kor. but that said the the +3/+3 and flying and ult are very nice.

November 21, 2016 4:37 a.m.

Pirew says... #34

Hey, maybe you should splash red and run Goblin Gaveleer, since that works with the whole equipment theme. Seems really synergistic to me. And if youre going boros, might as well toss in Weapons Trainer, right? I think this will really freshen this deck up a lot (lol). +1

November 22, 2016 1:26 a.m.

DHWorlds says... #35

Maybe try working with living weapons. Flayer Husk, Batterskull and Bonehoard they will up the creature count of your deck without downing the equipment numbers. More blockers, atackers and +1/+1 around the board since they enter the battlefield already equiped!!!

CheapDecks101 says... #36

Finally, an equipment deck that isn't cheeri0s +1.

Sram, Senior Edificer for even more card draw instead of Kor Skyfisher?

April 17, 2017 2:06 p.m.

COUGARMEAT says... #39

I use Surestrike Trident in a similar build with Leonin Shikari & Puresteel Paladin. It closes out games from nowhere. Sigarda's Aid also mitigates the high equip cost as well.

Tomslipknot1 says... #40

I have been playtesting this deck and took out Basilisk Collar, putting in Stoneforge Masterwork in to make Armament Master more resilient, i have had better results than with the Collar. I feel as 4 Sigarda's Aid is too much as i have drawn multiple ones though with Puresteel Paladin they work hand in hand so down to personal preference. Also O-Naginata would be a welcome addition even as a one-of as you can get to 3 toughness easily but other than that it's a great deck. +1
