GobboE Deckspert

The purpose of (most of) my decks is simply to have fun with friends, not to win necessarily. Instead of building a cutthroat deck, often I deliberately build a flaw into the deck, to assure that a deck is fun to play with and against. Yes, I'll loose some (and it's somebody else's turn to celebrate), but if I play right I'll win some too. Key to this is balance: balance between power cards, fun cards, and deliberately not covering every weakness in the deck. Some call this the 75% build, I call it the 'Have fun playing' build.

I also try to have a certain variety in my decks, that allows me to play different cards, thus ensuring that no two games are quite alike. Well, those are my two cents on this topic: enjoy :)

Optimator > Yes this deck, as are all my decks, is real. I did run into a Blazing Archon once...I wiped the entire table (4 other players) until I ran into the fifth who played it. In short: I lost :) If I'd drew some of the direct damage, I'd still managed it...but not that day. But I see your point. Which makes me want to consider Aligned Hedron Network (and the Chaos Warp you mentioned earlier).

But what to take out.

Cheap and effective against many decks: Inferno never leave home without it :) and Blasphemous Act

If anybody has some advice on whether or not to use Umbral Mantle, I welcome it

A good land to use, that isn't too expensive, is Grand Coliseum.

Also, Sydri is a great general, but in particular for more comat oriaented artifact builds (that she can provide deathtouch helps). If you consider switching consider Sharuum the Hegemon. I build a deck similar to yours, and it worked like a charm. For (blatant self) referential purposes ;) : Artifact Hegemony (Sharuum the Hegemon) . Just kidding, but feel free to to view.
