Thanks for the help, but as you know, it's Friday. tommorow is the PPTQ, and i want to play a deck that i'm familiar with. I could play with some minor changes now, but not a complete change. I appreciate all the effort you put into this comment, but I can't play a deck that I don't know how to pilot. After the fact i will definitely take those decks into consideration as a whole. Right now i'm looking for stuff that can help with THIS deck.

Hey, welcome to TappedOut. Sorry for the late reply, but I wanted to give in depth answer to your question.

If you're dead set on playing Tezzeret then you can use the recent winning U/B Control lists as a base. I think you can use this base to improve your deck. By simply adding Tezzeret and Swindle/Master as a win condition once you have control of the game. Outside of Tezzeret and Master I think you're cutting you're chances to win too much with a lot of cards that are less good then pure control cards or The Scarab God. Mechanized Production, Metallurgic Summonings, Torment of Hailfire and Revel in Riches these are not good constructed playable win conditions; they're too slow requiring too much set-up without enough payoff.

These cards are fine for casual play with friends or FNM, but you're going to be disappointed if playing them entering a bigger more important tournament. I don't like Riches because if you're playing it then you're also playing Treasure Map  Flip and with Map and/or Swindle using treasures to draw cards or play spells is much better than hopefully saving up until you get to 10 treasures to win the game.

I'm going to give you three different versions to consider, hopefully giving you some ideas from each version. First a control version that uses Tezzeret, Swindle/Master and Azcanta. The second version is improvise artifacts with Tezzeret, Swindle/Master, Rebuke, Map and Herald of Anguish. The third version is a mixing of the first two versions, it's Tezzeret control with artifacts.

The second and third versions are most likely what you're looking for because both gets more use out of Tezzeret, but I don't think either is good enough to take to a PPTQ. They're both more fun than the first version, if fun is more important than being competitive. The first version is the more competitive of the three versions. It's definitely not better than straight U/B Control with Scarab God. Different yes, better no.

Whatever deck you bring to the PPTQ it really needs to have a strong matchup vs Temur Energy, have main deck answers to The Scarab God and have a good sideboard plan vs Runamp Red. Temur, Red and U/B Control are most likely going to be the three most played decks at the tournament.




Good luck at the PPTQ.

IcbrgrMy main concern that i want to share with you, is whether or not you think you have enough card draw for sphinx's tutelage. I ran a mono blue mill with Fraying Sanity and Sphinx's Tutelage, but I never really had enough card draw. I asked around, and got some ideas for cad draw such as Pull from Tomorrow. Good Luck!

Anyway, to everyone else...

I'm building my first modern deck, and I need help. I'm not 100% sure how to link the actual decklist to this forum, so I'll leave a link below. My main concern with my deck is that I'm too slow for Mono erd burn, but too unreliable for Mirror Tron matches. I don't have a whole lot of money, so I can't afford a lot of the cards for Tron, so I built my own version of it.Thanks!
