Mirrodin Besieged

Enchantment

As Mirrodin Besieged enters the battlefield, choose Mirran or Phyrexian.

  • Mirran - Whenever you cast an artifact spell, create a 1/1 colorless Myr artifact creature token.
  • Phyrexian - At the beginning of your end step, draw a card, then discard a card. Then if there are fifteen or more artifact cards in your graveyard, target opponent loses the game.

TheoryCrafter on Brother's War Spoilers

My thoughts on the Brothers' War:

One of the things going into this set I was concerned about was how they were going to take Pre and Post Mending Power levels into account without making it overpowered compared to the more recent sets. From what I've seen they seem to have done an alright Job. Urza, Planeswalker  Meld  Meld is overpowered, but the Meld requirement makes enough sense of both design and flavor.

Cards like Teferi, Temporal Pilgrim, The Temporal Anchor, and Saheeli, Filigree Master are set in the present so the post Mending Power levels apply. I think the newest Teferi is a bit underrated. If you're looking to make him look formidable, Teferi's Ageless Insight in non-standard formats is your best bet. Combine this with Jace's Archivist or another draw engine and let the shenanigans begin.

The whole flavor seems to imply that yes, All these cards are powerful, but the power level displays raw power over refined skill. The best example is One with the Multiverse. While it is cheaper than Omniscience, manawise, and let's you cast from your library, the limit is one card per turn. Since the lore states the development of the academic study of Magic didn't happen until after the war, it helps explains this.

However, despite it making sense design wise, I'm a bit at a loss on how powerstones entering the battlefield tapped works from a flavor point point of view.

Once people realize how good Calamity's Wake can be against control, flashback and stax for mono-white decks the price will go further up.

If you run Urza, Powerstone Prodigy and don't have Mirrodin Besieged in your Commander deck or Terisian Mindbreaker in your Standard deck, you may be building them wrong.

It just occurred to me as I write this that they could have done a whole 10 card cycle of Surveil land cards like the "Temple of..." Scryland cards that originated in the Theros block.

Oh, Awaken the Woods, if you only weren't hovering around $16.

The Locust God Just got some extra card draw in Symmetry Matrix.

The Stasis Coffin, Goblin Firebomb, why do all the really cool colorless control cards have to be so expensive, manawise?

Audacity should make a decent early to mid-game companion to Ram Through in Pioneer.

Alloy Animist would make more sense if the artifact became an Elemental in addition to its other types.

Goblin Arsonist and Festering Goblin, I'd like to introduce you to Goblin Blast-Runner.

Some people seemed surprised about Tocasia, Dig Site Mentor making Surveil available in Bant, but it makes sense considering Surveil can be an oppressive ability. If I were going to create a GWUB aligned faction for a set. Surveil would be my mechanic and not just my keyword.

Fortified Beachhead reminds me of the faction land cards like Murmuring Bosk from the Lorwyn/Shadowmoor block. I wonder what they're planning here.

That's pretty much it with this set. Thank you for reading me out. May you draw well.

ultimentra on Urza Deck- Looking for feedback

3 weeks ago

Hello, I'm putting together my Urza, Chief Artificer deck and I am concerned that I may not have enough colored mana sources, lands, and instants. My win conditions focus on Blightsteel Colossus, Mirrodin Besieged, and Mechanized Production. Some combos are built in with Sidri to give me unlimited colored or colorless mana. Am I spreading myself too thin, not including some really important cards, etc? Thank you!

Dreadhorde Invasion survives the board wipes. Some of the other stuff that makes tokens doesn't. I've thought about taking it out for Mirrodin Besieged, but not for something that doesn't feed the theme.

If this was a classic Alela deck, Favorable Winds would be almost an automatic include. This is not a classic Alela deck. So yes, it is a decent card to consider, but not as strong as it would be if go-wide was what the deck did.

Viscera Seer seems like a good addition here. Sac your Ornithopters and the like to it to find Mirrodin Besieged.

Do you typically chose Mirrans or Phyrexians when casting Mirrodin Besieged? I feel both are quite good.

I have found, when playing Emry, that Blinkmoth Urn and Mirrodin Besieged were both quite useful. I also never worried about my hand size because I could play things from my graveyard. Magewright's Stone is great, too.

You raise a valid point. Protection is a rule I still admittedly have a bit of trouble with, hence the lack of equipment and auras. Mechanized Production is what I usually use as the "back-up plan" in case the main plan of milling and winning with Mirrodin Besieged falls through for whatever reason. You only really ever want to play it with a army of thopters or myrs or whatever on the board (since you don't have to have eight of the enchanted artifact to win) and only use if you you can win with it next upkeep. You do need to be very attentive to your CMCs, though. Luckily, the deck only has a few cards in the 4CMC slot that would conflict with it (and Mycosynth Lattice).

Long story short, it works well as a back up plan and probably should only be used as such.

Very well thought out primer. Was really surprised to see that it was your first! The background and fonts look nice, too. Could never figure out how to get that to work properly. The deck looks great. I'm always glad to see another Rebbec/Glacian deck pop up on here. I do have a lot of recommendations and insight from the games I've played with my own Rebbec/Glacian deck.

(Side note before I get distracted - Blind Obedience has mono white color identity. The black in the reminder text does NOT count towards it's color identity.)

Cards I'd definitely recommend -

Mycosynth Lattice - Turns ALL permanents into artifacts. Perfect for Glacian. I know you said that you're mainly a budget player and that this card is in the "upgrades and future" tab, but this one shoudl definitely be near the top of that list. It's INSANELY good in this deck. Such a high price tag, though. :\ Smothering Tithe is in the same boat.

Liquimetal Torque and Liquimetal Coating - Both provide instant speed protection with Rebbec. Someone tries to cast Doom Blade on her or Glacian (or anyone else)? Tap either of these and they can become an artifact and gain Rebbec's protection.

A few more removal spells would probably be a good idea as well, it's something that my own deck struggles with as well. Dispatch is great. Dispeller's Capsule is removal and also an artifact. Duplicant and Steel Hellkite are both removal that also fill the missing 6 CMC slot in your mana curve.

There are a few tutors in that aren't super overpriced that might be worth looking into. Idyllic Tutor can help find Mechanized Production or Mirrodin Besieged. Fabricate can let you search for any artifact. Any of the artifact mage cards like Trinket Mage, Tribute Mage and Trophy Mage are also worth mentioning. They're a bit limited but they should all be relatively cheap. Another great one I've gotten a lot of use out of is Arcum Dagsson. You can sacrifice an artifact at instant speed to search up another one. Sac a myr token for Darksteel Forge? Oh yes. It also serves as protection with Rebbec as you can sac an artifact to search up one with a specific CMC (er... MV. Never gonna get used to that) that you may happen to need protection from at the time. He serves a similar role to Master Transmuter who I see in the maybeboard.

A special shout out goes to Geode Golem. With the enough artifacts and the protection that Rebbec gives, it should be pretty easy to get him to connect so you can cast Glacian for FREE!

If you wanted to go the "turn all my artifacts sideways at people" route, cards like Sakashima's Will and Masterful Replication work wonders with creatures like Filigree Attendant or Darksteel Juggernaut and Shambling Suit. On the other hand, Rise and Shine from MH2 just animates and tosses counters on things. Much simpler and can achieve the same result of smashed face! I have an Urza, Lord High Artificer deck that focuses on this exact gameplan.

Vedalken Archmage and Endless Atlas are two great card draw engines. One with the Machine is also great but you need something big on the field to really capitalize on it. I see that you have Esper Sentinel in the maybeboard and I can't for the life of me figure out why I didn't add it into my own deck. I just buylisted it a week or two ago. :(

I think that's all I have for now. I've linked my deck below. Feel free to check it out and see if any other ideas pop out at you from there. I'm excited for Kamigawa Neon Dynasty as it seems to have a pretty good artifact theme going on but I have a feeling that The Brother's War set at the end of the year is gonna be HUGE for Rebbec/Glacian!
