Darksteel Axe

Artifact — Equipment

Darksteel Axe is indestructible. (Effects that say "destroy" don't destroy it.)

Equipped creature gets +2/+0.

Equip (: Attach to target creature you control. Equip only as a sorcery.)

Hi DreadKhan!

Than you for the ideas! I really like the ones you mentioned, seems great Vorthos targets for the Lich, a so much valuable object like the Crown it's perfect target haha Following the "empire" cycle you mentioned: Hand of Vecna, Eye of Vecna and The Book of Vile Darkness seem great and flavour objectives.

I like all the indestructible artifacts: Stuffy Doll, Creepy Doll, Darksteel Axe, Darksteel Citadel, Darksteel Forge, Darksteel Ingot, Darksteel Juggernaut, Darksteel Pendant, Darksteel Plate, Colossus of Akros, Darksteel Colossus, Darksteel Myr, Darksteel Relic, Kaldra Compleat, Shield of Kaldra, Necron Monolith, That Which Was Taken. I do not note the worse indestructible cards

The arficat lands as you say it would be great, at least I can be use the mono-black artifact lands (maybe there's only one).

If it was dimir or golgari I could use more liches but I can't, it's a pitty

Thank you for the ideas!

I’m digging the theme of this deck! Leonin are super cool. Since you have so many creatures that benefit from being equipped, you may want to consider adding some more equipment artifacts. I think you’ve got all the Leonin-based artifacts from Mirrodin, but if you want some other great options from the various Mirrodin sets, I would suggest Loxodon Warhammer, Darksteel Axe, Strider Harness, or Livewire Lash.

If you are looking for additional cat-like creatures, Pride Guardian is a solid one-drop blocker.

Best of luck with the build!

Polaris on March of the Machines and …

In this case, March of the Machines would have no effect. With Ensoul Artifact enchanting it, Darksteel Axe would be an artifact creature and would therefore not qualify as a "noncreature artifact" for March of the Machines' ability.

I know that if you have March of the Machines on the battlefield and then cast Ensoul Artifact on something like Darksteel Axe, the axe would then be a 5/5. But what if you have ensoul artifact first? Would March of the Machines then set it to 1/1 or simply not affect it because the axe was already a creature because of ensoul artifact?

Kythos, God of the Walls

Legendary Artifact Creature - Gargoyle God


As long as you control five or fewer artifacts, Kythos isn't a creature.

As long as your devotion to colorless is more than seven, Kythos has flying.

Artifacts you control untap whenever an artifact you control becomes the target of a spell of ability an opponent controls.


I'd like a Common draft chaff artifact or sorcery which is interesting. (It bugs me to no end that they print boring bad cards. I understand the goal in bad cards, but want interesting ones.)

See: Marauder's Axe and Torch Gauntlet as strictly worse versions of Bonesplitter , Darksteel Axe , and Vulshok Morningstar

That's unoriginal poor quality.

Original, poor quality would be Skyblinder Staff , Razor Boomerang , Tormentor's Trident , Thirsting Axe .

     Great suggestions 5scapegoat! This Masterful Replication card sounds right up my alley! Will be a definite include. I actually forgot about Shimmer Myr , another definite add. I may look for a little more versatility in something like Darksteel Axe instead of the Relic, but otherwise good call. I was also considering some effects like Ghostly Flicker or Deadeye Navigator to protect Urza from wipes and spam Construct tokens.
