Grafted Exoskeleton

Artifact — Equipment

Equipped creature gets +2/+2 and has infect. (It deals damage to creatures in the form of -1/-1 counters and to player in the form of poison counters.)

Whenever Grafted Exoskeleton becomes unattached from a permanent, sacrifice that permanent.

instead of Grafted Exoskeleton or Tainted Strike, you should run Phyresis for a cheaper way to infect opponents (at the cost of exoskeleton's power and toughness buff)

Mortlocke: I can see what your saying about companions, but it's a free card in my mind. Kaheera would give my other dinos vig helping them out. But I do like having access to the cost reduction the humans of Ixalan give me. So I am still on the fence. Just gotta see what the depths of Ixalan give me.

I love Tyrranax Rex. It could have been anything. What sold me was the can't be countered. I have a burning hate for blue and not being able to play my stuff. I have considered running Grafted Exoskeleton. But I would only run Grafted if I added the power increase effects to the deck. I know after the next visit to Ixalan, it's gonna be hard really choose what to take out and what to add.

I remember when companion was first introduced Lutri, the Spellchaser was the topic of conversation - not companion itself which is a shame. I find the mechanic fairly "meh" as you can only place the companion into your hand once, and most of if not all of the companions aren't necessarily going to turn the tide of a game - if I recall correctly. I'd suggest you reconsider Kaheera, the Orphanguard and companion altogether as it's just a "win more" card/mechanic, also your commander already has Vigilance.

I too am enamored with Tyrranax Rex, it's essentially Phyrexia's answer to Questing Beast that happens to be a badass Dinosaur as well. I intend on getting a copy and putting in one of my own decks as well, but it's very much dedicated to Poison counters and proliferation. I suggest you try and include Poison as a subtheme - Triumph of the Hordes is a start, but also include the recently spoiled/leaked? Tyrranax Alpha: a Phyrexian Dinosaur with haste and Toxic 3 for printed at common. Also there's Grafted Exoskeleton and the recently spoiled Prosthetic Injector as well. Will your Dinos be covering their victims in Glistening Oil, or will it simply be some more of that strange oil?

I really like your Alibou list! It's a fair chunk different than mine, but my guess is that we play is fairly different metas. My playgroup doesn't do stax too much, so i've stayed away from them in my build. It's cool to see a deck list that utilizes cards like Ethersworn Canonist and Lodestone Golem. Sands of Time looks chaotic as hell, and pretty synergistic with Alibou.

Also, the infect win conditions are fun. Grafted Exoskeleton is terrifying on Alibou.

I like seeing the graveyard interactions in the deck, I ended up cutting a lot of that from my deck as it doesn't directly synergize with Alibou, but Scrap Trawler, Goblin Welder and Sun Titan can do wonderful things together.

I have a question somewhat unrelated to this deck, I have an Imotekh the Stormlord deck which does a lot of artifact graveyard shennanigans and runs Kuldotha Forgemaster. How has that card played out for you? I've found it a little slow sometimes, but it also looks like it can do insane things. What makes for a good artifact shell around Kuldotha?

I had Argentum Armor in here but waiting till 6 mana without artifact mana to ramp made it tough. Decided on Quietus Spike as the nail for my hammers and 1/2 the mana exhaustion for the benefit. I've been trimming from 80 to get down to more competitive deck size. But I think I like Akiri enough to run another in the deck. The hobgoblin might be on borrowed time as I really want the engine to be ready for redcap to churn. I always think about the long game, this deck I need to break that marathon mentality and try to get it done by turn 5 or struggle with the power cards turning the tide. If I tinkled black for infect or swapped spike for Grafted Exoskeleton I'd have 10 poison counters before 20 health would hammer out.

More to do, any opinions are good! Aaron

OMG. A weird control deck that gives people poison counters when counter spelling them? That sounds interesting. It says "each turn" not "on your turn", so it should trigger off of instants like you said. That's super cool. Since he has black in his mana colors, he has access to a lot of tutors to get a Phyresis or Grafted Exoskeleton. With Braid of Fire and x cost cards like Fireball, you could possibly just dump a lethal amount of counters on an opponent.

Oops, I missed your infect stipulation. Thankfully there are ways to give her Infect. For example, Phyresis, Grafted Exoskeleton and Tainted Strike all do it. Though to be fair, I believe these are the only ones that work in this way. Still, that's not too bad.
