Hey, i'm playing my u/b tezzeret shenanigans deck at the pptq, and i was curious if you could help me with the deck a bit. If you could, please leave a comment on the deck. It would be a tremendous help. Im not quite sure what else i can do to improve my deck, and it's hard to give a deck attention on this site long enough for people to take a look, and comment.

hi there! how are you? :) when you have spare time can you check my D's - Standard Blue Merfolks ? thank you :)
October 17, 2017 12:24 p.m.
What would you suggest for Servitude in a Standard build?
October 12, 2017 3:53 p.m.
Hey can you look at my Energy DeckI need help with lands and keeping it cheap
October 11, 2017 8:22 p.m.
Yup female too :)
oh! thats really cool, i didnt know i could change those kinds of settings, i will have to check it out :p

Hey, so I saw a cool decklist called "Tezzerator" that goes along with the theme of what I as trying to make before, and I want to discuss which artifacts are good and which aren't. I think I will stick to the list as it is for the most part, but I Some of the artifacts seem moderately useless to some extent, and I want the standard guru's opinion on making it work.
Here is my current list Sultai Tezzerator

Yeah, super-fun. Too slow though for any kind of competitive group. Ramunap Red just runs all over it, and it doesn't have enough room for the removal it needs to deal with UBx Pirate decks. Still, think I'm going to enjoy it on the casual tables :-)
October 1, 2017 10:09 p.m.
okay i have completed my changes for my Blue White Approach [Competitive] and used a lot of your advice, but i also pivoted more into a dedicated approach deck with my main deck cards. I also changed it to two color, which really helped the manabase. Thanks for the advice, and feel free to check out my deck now.

Have you seen Why hasn't ANYONE noticed this? yet? I think I'm going to run it this season. I was originally planning on something Izzet, but it's going to be REALLY hard for me to pass on something as janky and powerful as Dinomonicon.

Good day Argy!
Got another spicy brew for you to check out. No sideboard yet, I'm still working on it. I'll take any suggestions, but I mostly just wanted to share.
PS: I really love your UB Pirate brew and will most definitely give it a try at FNM.
September 28, 2017 2:11 p.m.
Hey Argy! I'm fiddling with a new deck for standard that someone else inspired me to make. It is sort of a tron-ish style control deck that want's to abuse treasure to pump a massive Torment of Hailfire and potentially copy said torment with a flipped Primal Amulet.
I'm curious as to whether you could help me out, as you're one of the more familiar standard players, and your pirates deck is pretty awesome. If you want to take a look the list is Wellspring of Torment.
I'm primarily trying to find better removal, treasure generation, and card draw (i have almost none), I have a few ideas in mind but I'd love your input. Thanks!

Hey! I could make RaWr Dinos into a standard deck. What do you suggest?
September 25, 2017 10:07 a.m.
I don't think the upgrade happened quite yet. Man, I started that users of the week thing right after I started to stop using T/O. Now that I seem to be using the site again, I should start that up again.

September 25, 2017 6:55 a.m.
I saw what you said on yeago's profile, means a lot.
September 24, 2017 10:01 p.m.
hey, I just posted the jeskai control deck I'm taking to an open in October and probably also gp Seattle in april so I need some help with that if you do competitive advice, thanks!

OK, here is what I think this deck needs.
If you're having problems against Aggro decks, and you WILL because your deck takes quite a bit of time to get its Win Conditions established, I would play them at their own game.
Do you know what fits the theme of your deck, and stops you Opponents' plays?
If you had four of each they will not only boost your early Artifact count, they will give you early blockers, which will shut down your friend's Aggro deck, and give you an alterate Win Con - the same as the Mardu Vehicles - SMASH EARLY FACE.
This is probably not the news you were hoping for, as those cards are quite expensive, but I believe it is the best way to make this deck competitive enough to win some rounds at the PPTQ.
If you make these changes tag me again in these Comments. This might need a little more tweaking against Temur Energy.

The Modern environment is a lot more brutal than Standard.
People have been honing their Modern decks for years.
Merfolk is a known archetype.
What I would suggest you do is have a look at some of the Modern Merfolk decks on this site, and use them as a building guide.
Be aware that Modern decks can easily take a couple of thousand dollars to build, as they use very expensive lands.
People usually build a Modern deck then stop playing Standard. That way there might be a big outlay up front, but it ends up saving money in the long run, as you don't need to keep buying new Standard decks when cards rotate out.
October 18, 2017 7:40 a.m.
You now have too many lands and 62 cards in your deck.
Did you forget to remove the 2x Evolving Wilds?
October 18, 2017 3:59 a.m.
Duel deck cards aren't necessarily Standard legal.
If they were from an upcoming STANDARD set, they would be.
Any cards printed in Dual Decks aren't Standard legal, UNLESS they have ALSO been printed in a current Standard set.
Usually that's MAYBE only a couple.
October 18, 2017 3:53 a.m.
Yup, that's how you tag.
I'll run some tests.
October 18, 2017 3:38 a.m.
I build decks from memory to test against.
Even an approximation works.
October 18, 2017 3:38 a.m.
See if you can build your friend's deck from memory, then link it here.
From what you've said, running 4x Fatal Push against it, rather than just 2x, will help immensely.
You might also think about some Harsh Scrutiny. That will slow his early game down.
October 18, 2017 3:13 a.m.
TheGuyWhoNeverGoes4o I will never Comment on a deck unless I thoroughly playtest it.
That note in my description was to discourage people who just dump their deck on my description, without them FIRST playing it, or asking me to specifically playtest their decks against certain other decks.
You don't fall into either of those categories.
October 18, 2017 3:10 a.m.
TheGuyWhoNeverGoes4o can you make those changes I suggested, and tag me in these Comments once you do?
There's little point in me testing against a weaker version of this deck.
October 18, 2017 3:07 a.m.
Do you have a link to your friend's deck?
He can't still be running #1 Black Zombies, can he?
It's lost all its key pieces.
October 18, 2017 3:05 a.m.
OK, this is not working well for me.
I don't usually Comment until I've finished testing.
Let me run some tests against Temur Energy.
It also helps my feedback if you let me know up front what decks are causing you problems.
October 18, 2017 3:03 a.m.

Imo your mana would be faster like this:
October 18, 2017 2:55 a.m.
I'm still testing.
I actually don't think that Chandra brings that much to this deck.
If you removed her and Saheeli you could make the mana base much more consistent.
I realise you can sac Artifacts for mana, but you often win faster with more on the field.
October 18, 2017 2:47 a.m.
First bit of feedback:
That would let you play Chandra, Torch of Defiance much more consistently.

Harbinger of the Tides is not Standard legal.
Neither are a lot of other cards you have in this deck.
Look up the top, just under the name of this deck.
See how "Standard" has that little " * " next to it? That indicates that your deck isn't Standard legal.
Scroll down until you see "Highlight illegal cards" on the right side of this page.
Click on that and it will show you which cards in this deck aren't legal for Standard.
If you scroll back to the top after doing that, all the names of the illegal cards will be shown in red.
If you meant this deck to be Modern, and not Standard, I can't help you.
As I say on my profile, I only help with Standard decks.
October 18, 2017 1:45 a.m.
It might end up driving some extra traffic your way, but will also tell people how to Board against you.
Let me know if you want me to remove the link.
