I’m not sure what you’re gaining out of the etched creatures. It feels like it’s going to be really hard to generate 5 colors of mana here, cause you need Treasure Vault plus around 8-10 mana available, so most of the time Etched Oracle and Etched Monstrosity won’t be doing much. Also 19 lands seems super low.

I get you’re going for a gimmick with the artifact creatures, but when you play any of your planeswalkers, they’re likely to win the game on the spot by themselves, so what’s the point in all this other cute stuff?

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

Unfortunately, Etched Monstrosity isn't legal in this deck, asit is considered to have a 5 color identity due to the mana symbols in its effect. Luckily, if all you wanted was a big creature to copy, I have a better suggestion: Phyrexian Dreadnought

Etched Monstrosity

It helps to link the cards. Just use double brackets around the card name.

While the Monstosity has a 5 color card identity, it as a colorless card.

I think more card draw such as Vedalken Archmage and Bident of Thassa would help. Etched Monstrosity is not legal in Breya because it has on the card, so replace it with repeatable card draw.

Curious to hear how this deck plays for you. Seems to me at first glance like you have a lot of really cool alternative wincons, but that you are lacking the necessary meat to get you there. Example: You are running Test of Endurance and Felidar Guardian, but I don't see much lifegain other than Mayael's Aria, and then, that isn't helping you much unless you also have Etched Monstrosity out. This might be why people are recommending tutors, but I think you'd do fine to just streamline the thing a bit and flesh out a few of these wincons a bit more.

However, if you are finding that in your playgroup you can end up just cascading into Ramos's mana ability every turn and laying down this huge board every game... maybe loading the deck up with as much spice as possible is just the most fun way to play.

Either way, kudos on a fun list!

I'd suggest some kind of combo with Puppeteer Clique to steal stuff from your opponents graveyards, along side The Scorpion God. Etched Monstrosity is another interesting one, granting you a big body, -1/-1 counter synergy,and cards for a broken up 10 mana. Deity of Scars seams better in the deck synergy-wise than Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre. I'm not great at building control, but I hope that this helps!
