Cranial Plating Discussion

DBCooper on GO GO fast artifacts

Signal Pest is a possible addition that I think definitely fits your theme. Great deck! Also, Cranial Plating will make for some big attacks very fast.

Great deck overall!

Interesting stuff. both living weapons, one's a mini batterskull, and one's like Cranial Plating , only it counts artifacts and enchantments, and isn't color restricted

Some thoughts:

  • I would have thought you'd be able to get away with less lands, like 20, instead of 22. Personally i'd be dropping 2 lands and a Brass Squire for the remaining Sigarda's Aid and Steelshaper's Gift you currently have in the sideboard (they just seem like straight-up improvements, and must-haves for mainboard).

  • I'm surprised to see you running Plague Myr instead of Necropede . I would have thought you'd be wanting to swing with the infect creature every turn, and so the mana the Myr provides isn't great? I could be wrong?

  • I was expecting to see some Apostle's Blessing in the sideboard to protect your dudes.

  • I don't think you need to run more than a single copy of Argentum Armor , as you can search for it when needed, and there's just too many times you're going to get stuck with it in hand. I'd go down to a single copy so that you can run a more toolboxy weapon-set to best deal with the current situation. Both Maul of the Skyclaves and Sword of Light and Shadow both seem like strong other cards to run in the deck as 1-ofs.

  • How much value does Brass Squire actually provide? They seem quite slow in a deck that should be trying to close out the game fast. At the fastest, they can equip something on turn 4 (3 with ramp), when your opponent has probably already stabilized. I think Giver of Runes could better suite this slot, although to keep your artifact count high for Cranial Plating maybe some mix of Signal Pest and Welding Jar works better.

Gluttonous Troll is a new card that works really well. Some other cards to note are God-Eternal Bontu , Inspiring Statuary , Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest , and Cranial Plating .

CaveBoy - LOL, Thud is fantastic. I do have Fling in the Maybeboard. Thud economically is good value for sure -- 1 Red to fling our buffed creature? Fantastic! My only concern is the sorcery speed of Thud , however since a part of the idea of this deck is to lean more on the casual side, Thud does make a good fit if you wanted to go through the fling-card route. I'm holding off on that personally to give more of a chance for the Living Weapon themed Mortarpod to shine in combination with a pumped up Fireblade Charger , in terms of big damage. Thud / Fling is technically better, as it's basically doubling Fireblade Charger 's effect, but this is supposed to be a Living Weapons deck! I wanna use Mortarpod ! Haha. That being said, it does become even more compelling to use if you were to swap out Warren Instigator for the Maybeboard-card, Korlash, Heir to Blackblade . A lovely card for the deck in many aspects and to myself (I love the look of that Future Sight border sooo much -- they're my favorite aesthetically), Korlash, Heir to Blackblade with a Lashwrithe and/or Cranial Plating will make him a big boy. If you happen upon a 2nd copy in hand, you can buff while also ramp, and of course if you were to have Thud or Fling , you're dishing out some spicy damage. Lots of fun ideas here!

Deadpan_Serious on ▷ Budget Modern WHITE AFFINITY ◁ 【NEW from AER!】

while Toolcraft Exemplar is really powerful for one mana, it doesn't feed off of Steel Overseer or Tempered Steel and it doesn't feed Cranial Plating or help Etched Champion or Dispatch achieve their metalcraft. so i would suggest replacing them with Court Homunculus .

also War Report or Tomb of the Spirit Dragon would allow you to gain a massive amount of life.

I really like Bomat Courier for the card draw potential and it works with the mono-red you have.

I stumbled into Affinity back when Mirrodin was standard and have loved it ever since.

I find myself liking to play Vault Skirge + Cranial Plating , OR Arcbound Ravager + Disciple of the Vault , but I feel Arcbound+Cranial sort of work against each other.

MindBoogaloo on Cheating Made Easy: Ramirez DePietro & Armix

Thanks for your suggestions abby315 & seshiro_of_the_orochi.

Transmute really has one of the strongest synergies with Ramirez; however, I didn't end up adding it for each CMC, because the deck is still in construction and I don't have key cards to tutor for yet. Also, I want to make sure that the card with transmute has a relevant ability. Otherwise, it'll only be a tutor and a waste of a card slot, imo.

I haven't thought of Dredge cards. Thanks for that suggestion! I think cards with that ability might work best when I have both commanders in play. (probably cutting some cycling cards for Dredge) These are the ones I'm currently considering: Golgari Thug, Necroplasm and Dakmor Salvage. I think I need more cards that recur stuff from my graveyard besides Ramirez. (just in case he gets removed before combat dmg etc.)

What's your opinion on redundant cards? I already have 2 creatures that reduce costs of artifacts and 2 creatures that return artifacts to my hand when they die. How many is enough do you think?

Also looking for cards that synergize well with my commanders and help me recur non-artifact, non-creature cards.
