Goblin Engineer

Creature — Goblin Artificer

When this enters the battlefield, you may search your library for an artifact card, put it into your graveyard, then shuffle your library.

, , Sacrifice an artifact: Return target artifact card with converted mana cost / mana value 3 or less from your graveyard to the battlefield.

Gleeock yes the ape/monkeys are a little dull, but recently they've been printing one good one every few sets Kogla, the Titan Ape, Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer, Silverback Elder and now Kibo, Uktabi Prince. I hope they keep up this trend.

Garruk's Uprising is a bit awkward because it only hit on 8ish of your creatures but the trample is amazing. I'm still looking at the card draw in the deck it feels borderline... I was thinking about maybe putting in Goblin Engineer to fetch Idol of Oblivion or other cheap stuff but it doesn't feel great.

+ Bloody Betrayal
+ Commander's Sphere
+ Spark Double
+ Crowded Crypt
+ Letter of Acceptance
+ Izzet Locket
+ Rakdos Locket
+ Dimir Locket

out:
- Dreadmalkin
- Hobblefiend
- Ravenous Harpy
- Laurine, the Diversion
- Yahenni, Undying Partisan
- Angrath, the Flame-Chained
- Jace, Ingenious Mind-Mage
- Undercity Informer
- Thoughtpicker Witch
- Claws of Gix
- Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded

Sure! I suppose you could run Tiller Engine or Bomat Courier as a secondary target. Walking Atlas is possibly the strongest card in the deck so I think having ways to find it would be valuable.

Maybe you're right though, maybe Recombiner wouldn't fit in this iteration of Moraug. I could see an artifact-combo-based Moraug list being cool though. Like it could go infinite using things like Great Furnace + Goblin Welder, or Salvaging Station + Darksteel Citadel + stuff, and tutors like Recombiner, Goblin Engineer, Gamble, Hoarding Dragon, Inventors' Fair, Moonsilver Key, Goblin Matron, etc. Lots of constructs that'd fit the strat too like Salvager of Ruin, Scrap Trawler, Workshop Assistant. Sorry got way off topic haha

Neat idea!

Are you asking for just self-recurring artifacts or artifact recursion in general because and are very good at the latter. For the former, your options are a little limited without . I'd look at artifacts with "unearth", or artifacts like Spine of Ish Sah, Scrap Trawler or Myr Retriever. If you want more general artifact recursion then I'd recommend Daretti, Scrap Savant, Goblin Engineer, Scrap Mastery, Trading Post, and Trash for Treasure. Most of these can be safely played at the precon power level. Some recursion effects that are on the stronger end are Goblin Welder, Portal to Phyrexia, Emry, Lurker of the Loch, and Academy Ruins. These are stronger in my opinion because of their efficiency, repeatability, and they possess fewer constraints.

As far as "how to build a precon level deck" goes, I wouldn't worry about purposely nerfing the deck per say, but maybe asking yourself "could a precon handle the synergies, resiliency, and value engines that my deck creates?". Ultimately though, I think the best advice I can give is to build the deck that you want to build, and that you think is precon level. Then play it against some precons. That will give you the best feel for where you deck is at and if you need to add or remove things.

Hey, you left out highlighting or explaining the best infinite combo with Urza you have here. Urza + Myr Battlesphere + Ashnod's Altar = infinite Myrs, infinite colorless mana, infinite copies of all artifacts you control and infinite damage to each player with Breya.

Nice version so far on a semi budget, but build around the Urza + Battlesphere + Altar combo with more protection? Consider more combo protection? Urza + Battlesphere + Altar combo can be activated at instant speed at any time as long as you control all three permanents and have 6 colorless mana available. You're going to want more than 6 colorless mana if you intend to activate the combo though because you'll also want instant protection.

Darksteel Forge and Padeem, Consul of Innovation can protect Altar + Battlesphere, but they can't protect Urza without additional effect to make Urza an artifact. In the combo Urza is also not leaving the battlefield making him much easier to protect.


Assembling combos in Breya is made much easier with Wishclaw Talisman and because it's an artifact it has insane interaction with Breya. You can sac Wishclaw before opponent gains control of it, but still tutor for your card. When you activate Wishclaw it puts the entire effect as one trigger onto the stack. In response sac Wishclaw, putting it into your graveyard, then when you resolve Wishclaw trigger you tutor for your card, but opponent doesn't gain control of Wishclaw because it's no longer on the battlefield. Pair Wishclaw with Goblin Welder, Emry, Lurker of the Loch, Goblin Engineer or any other artifact recursion/reanimation source for a repeatable tutor.

Master Transmuter is powerful with high CMC artifacts especially when she can help assemble combos Darksteel Forge and Myr Battlesphere. It's also nice with Breya as a source to create more Thopters for 1 mana or to abuse any other artifact that has an ETB ability.


Consider more Pain lands and Artifact lands? They could replace some basic lands to improve color fixing/Breya interaction which can help gameplay. 23 basic lands is a lot in a four color deck.

Good luck with your deck.

Pheardemons on Mishra gets turned into a nose

Hello Renzisherekiddo, I was wondering if you'd be willing to take a look at my version. I'm still in playtesting but ours are fairly similar.

Mishra's Relentless Horde

I've noticed a lot of players are playing Goblin Engineer. Is this strictly for the Phyrexian Dragon Engine  Meld? If the plan is to go wide, is Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Loyal Apprentice, ect. worth the slot even if they only make one token? Wouldn't something like Grave Titan or Death Tyrant be more worthwhile as a continuous engine?

Lastly, I would recommend Raid Bombardmentand/or Cavalcade of Calamity as extra damage on attack plus some sort of "damage cannot be prevented" spell. I'm trying to fit that into mine.
