Artifact Creature — Golem

Trample

Darksteel Colossus is indestructible.

If Darksteel Colossus would be put into a graveyard from anywhere, reveal Darksteel Colossus and shuffle it into its owner's library instead.

Darksteel Colossus Discussion

RNR_Gaming on Atla's Eggs

You only seem to have one titan. I'm assuming you'll be adding the rest later. Kozilek, Butcher of Truth and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger should definitely be in. Additionally, the lesser eldrazi: It That Betrays , Artisan of Kozilek and Pathrazer of Ulamog would all be great includes. You could also think about Darksteel Colossus and Blightsteel Colossus (I would wait for a reprint on blightsteel though)

Hey, nice brew with new Atla.

Consider more haste?

With the expensive price manabase here with many Forest dual lands Nature's Lore is an upgrade for Farseek . Consider replacing Cultivate and Reach with two drop mana rocks: Talisman of Impulse , Talisman of Unity , Talisman of Conviction ? Consider Open the Armory or Stoneforge Mystic ? It's another tutor that can get one of Greaves, Skullclamp, Staff, Boots.

I think Regal Behemoth is a better Mirari's Wake or Zendikar Resurgent with Atla. In fact consider cutting both of these cards for Regal? It's a creature, gives you the monarch (draw) and it has the same land bonus ability. The +1/+1 that Wake gives all your creatures can be detrimental if you're trying to use Skullclamp to sac 0/1 Eggs which is an excellent source of both card draw and cheating creatures onto the battlefield. It's broken, anything that makes this interaction worse I wouldn't include.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • I don't know what the win-con is precisely. It isn't clear.
  • I see an Emrakul and Cyclonic Rift , but beyond that, I see nothing that is game winning.
  • The strategy is indiscernible.
  • Lot of 0-drops, low draw, token spam, and control, but nothing that leads up to a game changer or really synergizes effectively.

  • While playtesting your deck, I found myself out of cards and getting dead draws a lot.

  • Most of the time, I would get a good board by turn 6 or 7, under the assumption my opponents left my board alone and didn't kill me by that point.

  • So I must say, I really do think you need to narrow down the strategy, because so far, it's hard to tell if this is tempo control or battle cruiser.

  • If you want tempo, definitely find ways to generate as many tokens as possible. Whirler Rogue and Myr Battlesphere are good for that, especially if you decide to use bouncers like Deadeye Navigator or spells like Displace . (Deadeye can kinda go infinite in some situations)

  • If you're going for a battle cruiser, Metalwork Colossus , Traxos, Scourge of Kroog , and Darksteel Colossus are definitely viable options.
  • If you want Stax, well then you're going to need to make a completely different kind of deck.

  • A description would definitely aid people in figuring out what your deck is supposed to do.

  • Good luck with the brew.

ZEDSHIFT on Amplifire Budget Combo Deck (The ABC’s of MTG)

How do you feel about a transformative sideboard into (or from) a Madness deck? Thinking of Demigod of Revenge , Fiery Temper , and Avacyn's Judgment personally. Also, Darksteel Colossus may be a better non-budget option than Emmy to get around GY hate.

Hear hear! I ran a few games with it last night and ran into mana problems, so I will have to adjust that accordingly. Madcookie Combustible Gearhulk is a great addition. I will try running that and Darksteel Colossus . Thanks for the advice! Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor Reality Shift and Mana Geyser deserve a try. Using Reiterate on the latter can be good fuel for an Xtra thicc Banefire or Comet Storm , which were actually the targets for Thousand-Year Storm . I've gotten the combo off successfully a few times and I can usually stall and pull off a lethal "x" in the late game. I think Mana Geyser has the potential to get that giant x spell off more consistently, so I will definitely try it out! Thank you all for the advice and suggestions. I am really enjoying building and playing this deck

Cutting lands is good and fun until you get your expectations subverted and got stuck with 3 lands the whole game. My opinion is a deck has to have around half its card dedicated to mana producing (lands, rocks, etc). As it is you are sitting at 43(35 lands and 8 mana rocks) and I'd strongly suggest you don't cut more. Keep in mind that Jhoira is relatively high-priority commander for Doom Blade and yolo casting her on turn 3 and expecting nothing happens to her so you can double suspend is either a pipe dream or an indication you are playing against beginners.

Also I think you could use a bit more card draw in the deck as I counted 5 or so spells. Maybe add Combustible Gearhulk in the place of that 8/8 Theros kraken.

Otherwise good deck. Cheers!

(I'd also run Obliterate with some indestructible bois like both Ulamogs, Darksteel Colossus , Blightsteel Colossus and the like, but its not for everyone's taste)

Homelessguy Thank you! I've been trying to get a Lim-Dul's Vault for the deck, but the new print (with way better art than Alliances) has been surprisingly tough to get. It's definitely on my list for improvements. Cunning Evasion is one from MH I've considered, but haven't tried yet. With multiplayer, it's very uncommon to have no "soft" target for Yuriko herself to swing at, so having to work around blockers comes up quite rarely.

I haven't quite gone in for the common super CMC spells such as Draco and Blinkmoth Infusion , as I want to avoid cards which don't serve any purpose other than Yuriko flips. Blightsteel Colossus and Darksteel Colossus are unique in their ability to reshuffle themselves in, as I can toss them to hand size and then tutor them back to the top the next turn (or possibly even in between activations, if I have Frantic Search to discard them).

5scapegoat on Urza's Gamble

One of the cards that has been announced for core set 2020 is [translated as] "Masterful Replication". It is a 6 cost modal instant (5 + Blue). Its effects are: create two 3/3 artifact creature tokens; or every artifact you control becomes a copy of target artifact you control.

Applications include:

  • Have an interesting time with an army of Master of Etherium or Darksteel Colossus or similar tough artifact creatures.
  • Have a stack of Genesis Chamber each making a token when you next cast something.
  • You could one shot someone during their upkeep with the sudden appearance of a board full of Iron Maiden .
  • With your Urza out during your opponents draw step, you could turn all of your artifacts into copies of Mind's Eye tapping them to pay their own cost drawing a mass of cards.
  • You could also win the turn after casting Mechanized Production by making all of your artifacts, including artifact lands, into copies of the artifact you enchanted.

Shimmer Myr is also a good card.

Also since you might find yourself attracting some artifact hate some indestructible artifacts might be a good include, such as Darksteel Ingot , Darksteel Relic and Darksteel Plate .
