Ich-Tekik, Salvage Splicer

Ich-Tekik, Salvage Splicer

Legendary Creature — Phyrexian Human Artificer

When Ich-Tekik, Salvage Splicer enters the battlefield, create a 3/3 colorless Golem artifact creature token.

Whenever an artifact is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, put a +1/+1 counter on Ich-Tekik and a +1/+1 counter on each Golem you control.

Partner (You can have two commanders if both have partner.)

Ich-Tekik, Salvage Splicer Discussion

smilodex on Best Commanders in EDH [Tier List]

@Dam0: Like we already said, we rate commanders on their own abilities. Ich-Tekik, Salvage Splicer tries to do too many things... Golem-, ETB-, artifact- and +1/+1-counter synergies on a green commander is just bad. The best golem synergy cards are also white/red or blue... The green ones are over costed and even worse than Ich-Tekik. But yes, Mirri the Cursed isn't that great either, but she has at least haste + evasion, to play her as a bad black voltron commander.

Great deck! +1. I have a Ich-Tekik, Salvage Splicer + Rebbec, Architect of Ascension golem tribal, "regular" Commander deck, which is cool and all, but you using Toggo, Goblin Weaponsmith makes me jealous anyway, lol! =D

I like a lot of your card choices, but I feel that I should point out a few things I noticed in your description, if you don't mind:

  1. In the "About Rocks" section, you mentioned planeswalkers, but there are no planeswalkers in pauper, or pEDH, iirc.
  2. In that same section you also mentioned letting your commanders use the rocks, however, that will unfortunately NOT generate Commander damage. Commander damage is dealt via combat damage only, therefore any damage your commander does otherwise is just considered regular, boring old damage. Even if that damage is dealt by your Commander during the combat phase, it still wouldn't be Commander damage unless it was dealt to a blocker/player during the "Damage Resolution Step" of the combat phase.
  3. In the "Golems" section, you said that you usually move Modular counters from your Arcbound creatures to Itchy-Tekky, but unfortunately that also does not work. Arcbound creatures can only put their counters on another artifact creature when they die, and Itchy is not an artifact creature, and therefore cannot be the recipient of those counters.

Beyond that, I like what I see here! Nice first attempt at PDH! If you want to dig deeper into Pauper EDH, check out the Pauper EDH Primer, the Compendium (both of which are maintained by PDH legends Podkomorka and Ruffigan) and my own List of Lists (which contains resources for PDH and every other format).

I've seen some good suggestions here already, but just figured I'd say that I'm the same kind of deck builder. I like doing the unusual, even if the commander might actually not be underused.

A few ideas (basically, these are ideas I haven't gotten around to, but want to):

If any of these ideas seem fun, feel free to use them or ask me for further explanations.

I've built a couple of odd decks, my personal favorite is a naya superfriends deck, helmed by Gahiji, Honored One. Its not too out there, but the entire deck is built around Primal Surge, so there are no instants or sorceries at all.

Personally, I'd also think about a deckbuilding restriction, something that really makes you think about how you have to build the deck. Best example, I've got a wheel deck built around 2 partner commanders and a companion Tymna the Weaver/Kraum, Ludevic's Opus/Obosh, the Preypiercer All odd CMC in 4 colors with a wheel/combo based wincon.

For a weird recommendation/challenge: Ich-Tekik, Salvage Splicer/Sakashima of a Thousand Faces/Keruga, the Macrosage creatureless summoner tribal. All your spells and support makes creature tokens, but beyond the commanders there are no creatures in the deck.

Many thanks for your thoughtful reply. I run Akiri, Line-Slinger with Ich-Tekik, Salvage Splicer. I find all of these Partner iterations interesting as Strixhaven and Commander 2021 really gave artifact decks a nice boost. Looking to get an Esper Sentinel ASAP. Keep up the great work with posting your decks! I should really start posting mine. I'll also begin that process in the next week or so. Cheers!

Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

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.

Thanks king-saproling after playing the deck a few times I am finding that Gyome with trample actually ends up connecting more often then I thought. I like the idea of including Feasting Troll King and Ich-Tekik, Salvage Splicer for the +1s and a bit more combat damage but not sure what I'd remove to make space and not affect the other strats.
