Arcbound Ravager

Artifact Creature — Beast

What I'd cut:

Pilgrim's Eye: Not a very good rate, and it doesn't even ramp

Eldrazi Displacer: You don't have enough colorless mana producers to make this consistent, and there are better flicker effects you have acess to

Eight-and-a-Half-Tails: Clunky protection when it isn't really needed

Avacyn, Angel of Hope: Sadly just a win-more card in this case. If it sticks around sure you're probably going to win but you'll be enemy #1 and you're likely not going to survive that

Sword of Feast and Famine: Probably the most overpriced of the swords, and the most likely to draw hate. It looks good on paper but without a way to capitalize on it you're going to bite off more than you can chew.

The Wanderer: Not worth the 4 mana. There are just better cards that could be run.

Ephemeral Shields is kind of a weird addition. Its just not very good.

2-3 Plains: 38 is just a bit high for a deck that peaks at 3 cmc cards. Maybe add more ramp instead

Suggestions to add

The MDFC's are just great to have due to their flexibility: https://scryfall.com/search?as=gridℴ=name&q=type%3Aland+commander%3AW+%28game%3Apaper%29+is%3Amdfc

You don't have that many ways to sacrifice artifacts despite having several triggers off of. The standards are Trading Post, Arcbound Ravager and for this deck Oswald Fiddlebender is great because it tutors out another artifact for free. Kuldotha Forgemaster is a must because it can turn some of your dud artifacts into a portal or blighsteel, and at instant speed too.

Metalwork Colossus is just fun, plus with all your expendable artifacts it can be quite persistent

Wurmcoil Engine is just great, and doubling that death trigger is fantastic. Can't play its new little brother, because he's black, but the original is still a classic

Threefold Thunderhulk has two ETB's that can be copied, and he's a sacrifice outlet. I would also recommend Hangarback Walker since you can double the death trigger

If you put in enough Artifact sacrifices cards like Scrap Trawler, Myr Retriever, and Loran, Disciple of History to recur them back to your hand. Also consider Syr Ginger, the Meal Ender for payoffs to all that sacrificing.

Its a dead horse, but Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile are never bad choices.

Blackerhawk on Affinity and what to cut

3 weeks ago

Hey nuperokaso , thanks for the input. Black mana was in the deck for the alternative equip cost of Cranial Plating, but Mistvault Bridge coming into play tapped does slow me down. I do have 4 Memnites and 4 Welding Jars in my collection, and could replace the remaining 2 Myr Enforcers with those. Or maybe instead of the Gingerbrute? Would you go Fling over Shrapnel Blast? As it can do a lot more damage with the Cranial Plating attached to a creature and with the Arcbound Ravager after he eats the rest of the crew...

I greatly appreciate your response and any other input is more than welcome.

nuperokaso on Affinity and what to cut

You will need to remove 18 card to get to 60: - 2 Mystic Forge and 4 Deadly Dispute - Affinity is an aggro deck; it wants to put additional creatures on board, not just draw cards. You may leave Thoughtcast and Thought Monitor. That will also rid you of black color entirely. - 4 Mistvault Bridge - 22 lands is too much for a 60 card deck that mostly plays free spells. You also don't want to draw multiple tapped lands. - 2 Shrapnel Blast - You don't want multiples in your opening hand, because then you won't have enough artifacts to cast your spells. You are also playing another sacrifice outlet (Arcbound Ravager) and too many sacrifice effect have diminishing returns. - 2 Myr Enforcer - You were playing 12 7 mana spells, that's simply too much. You can't keep opening hand with 4 of them. - 4 Lotus Petal - The only card in your deck that was not Modern legal. Also it's useless in longer game.

After these cuts, your deck has 60 card. However, 10 of them are non-artifacts, which may be more than you would like.

I will also give you a few other tips: - If you are too low on 0 mana cost cards, try Memnite or Welding Jar. Jar does something even in longer game, unlike your original Lotus Petal. - Nettlecyst - Acts similarly to the Cranial Plating, but comes with a body and has a good toughness. If you would play it, I suggest that you replace them for Arcbound Ravager, as they are doing opposite things.

very original idea!!

What do you think of Precursor Golem?

Maybe also Arcbound Ravager?

Also, is this a Dune-themed deck by chance? Or just a fun title? :)

wallisface on Why Do Some Players Keep …

jethstriker i‘m not convinced that legendaries were ever deliberately made to be more powerful because of their inherent drawback - this feels like something that players would intuitively expect to be the case (because it would make sense), but looking through magics history of the strongest cards in formats, we don’t see that to be true - moderns past is littered with staples like Snapcaster Mage, Tarmogoyf, Death's Shadow, Siege Rhino, Arcbound Ravager, Goblin Guide, Bloodbraid Elf, Stinkweed Imp, Fury, Solitude, and Orcish Bowmasters. Yes there’s stuff like Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer and Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath, but I don’t think there’s enough density/evidence to conclude legendaries are inherently built stronger.

I would also be sceptical of this being the case because it would be weird for Rosewater to be wanting to remove the Legend rule if it served a mechanical purpose

This might be a question for Blogatog?

Missing Animation Module to Go with rosie. Add Krark-Clan Ironworks. KCI + Vending machine goes infinite with Peregrin Took or Academy Manufactor and adding Arcbound Ravager will increase redundancy in those combo lines. Idk what you should take out but not having KCI is a huge whiff. My best recommendation is toss Dusk / Dawn for it. As for Animation Module that one is a good card but im not sure it can make its way into the list as adamantly as KCI should.

I have a deck that utilizes a lot of the same combos. You should check it out. Vending Machine Slumlord CEO

Hope of Ghirapur seems like a great fit.

Arcbound Ravager and Arcbound Reclaimer really useful robots.

Blood Moon hefty tax.

legendofa on What was the last iconic …

11 months ago

My take here is that eras, rather than the game as a whole, are defined by iconic cards, usually cards that dominate the landscape around them or that represent the state of design philosophy of the time. (This criterion is more based on competitive value than I usually lean toward, but how do you pick a card that says, "This is what Magic: the Gathering is all about!")

The Power Nine, Necropotence, Arcbound Ravager, Jace, the Mind Sculptor, and Lurrus of the Dream-Den are all examples of cards that are iconic of an era by way of power. The Power Nine represent a time when the idea of buying, collecting, and selling cards for their own sake wasn't being considered. Lurrus of the Dream-Den represents an era of wild experimentation and heavy pushes for power.

The era we're in right now, in my opinion, is marked by a rapid increase in supplementary products (Commander sets alongside Standard sets, Universes Beyond) and "tracking" mechanics like day/night, dungeons, Ring tempting, and similar effects. So what card defines this? I'm going to say Nazgul. It's not on the same power level as the cards I listed above, but it's the most representative of the current design philosophy: non-M:tG origin, uses a tracking mechanic, and modifies deck building rules. We'll see what shakes out in a few years,
