Mishra's Self-Replicator Discussion

Thanks for the suggestions. Yes, it's a bit of a chaotic deck. I sought to integrate multiple themes and lots of ideas, so an apparent lack of focus was pretty much inevitable. I haven't had issues with the deck not working, though.

First, the suggested cuts:

While Pillardrop Warden and Cogwork Archivist might be a little less efficient than other options, they are a bit more flexible in how they are used. The archivist is useful if I want to put Glimpse of Tomorrow back into my library They both also have reach.

Tavern Scoundrel and Witch's Oven are good ways to sacrifice something that might otherwise be exiled, stolen, or temporary. I can sacrifice Homura, Human Ascendant  Flip to flip him or gain control of an artifact with Confusion in the Ranks. It's a useful effect to have access to.

Mishra's Self-Replicator is a good mutate target, and I can trigger it fairly easily.

Delina, Wild Mage can copy Legendaries. I could run Helm of the Host for this effect, but this is what I am using for now.

Avarice Totem disrupts plays and scales extremely well in the late game. It can be tutored with Urza's Saga as well.

Chandra's Ignition is a solid asymmetrical board wipe, and good for clearing away pesky utility creatures.

Second, your suggestions:

I have a few options for more draw that I'm already thinking about, and utility lands are something I can easily play around with. I eventually need to add my Treasure Vault and Goblin Welder to the deck, but they are tied up in other decks at the moment. I think impulse draw isn't ideal for this deck. If I end up exiling Glimpse of Tomorrow because I can't cast or suspend it.

So what is the goal of this deck? Is this sort of a chaos/token deck? I can see the skeleton of the strategy, but I also see theft, pirates, and burn. My main suggestion would be try to trim some of the out of place cards. Thoughts on things to include/remove regarding the token/chaos strategy:

Possible additions:

Trailblazer's Boots or Prowler's Helm - low mana investments that let Ragavan be nearly unblockable. I currently don't see that many ways that allow Ragavan to get through late game.

You run enough pirates that Breeches, Brazen Plunderer might be worth it

Ardent Elementalist is a new card that is the red version of Archaeomancer

Curse of Opulence - easy tokens and mana

There are a fair number of goblins that come with tokens so I would look into some of those

Rionya, Fire Dancer for temporary token copies for your best creatures

I see very little in the form of card advantage so you might consider things like Light Up the Stage, Ignite the Future, Faithless Looting, Mask of Memory, etc.

Some utility lands like: Treasure Vault, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Myriad Landscape, Kher Keep, Buried Ruin, Dormant Volcano, and Maze of Ith or Thaumatic Compass  Flip/Spires of Orazca

Possible cuts (most of these are odd fits or just inefficient cards that have better alternatives):

Pillardrop Warden, Cogwork Archivist, Witch's Oven, Tavern Scoundrel, Mishra's Self-Replicator, Delina, Wild Mage, Avarice Totem, Chandra's Ignition (great card, but not at it's best in this deck).

Overall I like the deck idea, I just feel it needs a little more focus. +1 from me.

Hicvelox might be a good name. It's Latin for "Quick Builder".

But overall, I think it's decently balanced for a legend, even if it is a strictly better Myr Enforcer. As an Assembly-Worker the flavor is spot-on; it reminds me heavily of Mishra's Self-Replicator.

I've decided to swap Tempt with Vengeance out for Mishra's Self-Replicator as a way to generate tokens. It should be fairly easy to trigger, and has an interesting interaction with my 2 mutate creatures as well.

By the way, all my games so far with this deck have been a blast.

multimedia on Orzhov token life drain

8 months ago

Hey, nice budget version with some creative strategies. You forgot Sol Ring :)

Consider more repeatable draw from effects you don't have to cast since you have a lot of cards to assemble for the combos and then you don't lose life from Liesa.

Dawn of Hope is nice with Liesa because she has lifelink thus when she does damage pay 2 mana to draw. Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip uses life to draw. Liesa has flying and there's quite a few other fliers here who can more easily do combat damage to a player for Mask of Memory .

Court of Grace and Palace Jailer can be repeatable draw with the monarch and Grace can be repeatable 4/4 Angels or 1/1 Spirits. Cards that create tokens are good with Skullclamp especially 1/1 tokens such as from Keeper of the Accord and Leonin Warleader .


Some cards to consider cutting:

Cards to consider cutting are Harmless Assault since four mana for this effect is too much. Mishra's Self-Replicator there's much better five drops here to cast. Withercrown subpar for a removal spell since your opponent can just ignore it until they find a way to remove it because losing 1 life is not much to worry about. Rally the Ranks since +1/+1 anthem effect is not really worth it.

Demon of Loathing is not as good as the other high CMC creatures. Bloodline Pretender only good when you have Nexus or Conspiracy on the battlefield because you have to choose a creature type. Instead play a card that can help to setup Nexus or Conspiracy? Sol Ring could replace Replicating Ring .

Good luck with your deck.

ClockworkSwordfish on Fling It *OLD*

10 months ago

Spine of Ish Sah seems like a perfect fit here, as Bosh can throw 7 damage at your opponent's face turn after turn while it blows up a permanent every time. Mishra's Self-Replicator also seems like it could provide some solid reliability: every time you play an artifact, it's just to get another 5-mana artifact to chuck at your foe.

If you really want some big-league damage, though, I think Metalwork Colossus could fit the bill. Thank to all of your artifacts you should be able to play him for a considerable discount, but he still hits for 11 points when you fling him at your foe. Best of all? You can even ditch a couple of tiny trinkets to bring him back for another round!

Brutal_B on Pattern Recognition #132 - Vehicles

2 years ago

I was hooked on vehicles from the get go. Here's my vehicle edh deck. Shameless plug I know but why not show it off in the light of this article. Creatures with the Inspired mechanic work great for vehicles. King Macar, the Gold-Cursed , Sphinx's Disciple , Oreskos Sun Guide and others are great additions to vehicle centric decks. Like mentioned in the above article, some of the pilots of Kaladesh: Gearshift Ace , Ovalchase Daredevil , Speedway Fanatic ... Not to mention some of the artificers in the same block. They all mesh to create a cohesive deck that's a blast to "pilot" ; ) Some other creatures worth mentioning are as follows: Hateflayer , Golem Artisan , Night Market Lookout , Mishra's Self-Replicator , Throne of the God-Pharaoh . And Mirrorworks cuz why not, right? Of course these are for the commander or modern minded players.

I don't mean to steal the spotlight berryjon but I just couldn't hold back. The potential that vehicles hold is fun to witness unfold and I can't wait to see what WotC has in store for future releases. Keep up the Pattern Recognition articles..I always look forward to them.

VEHICLES ARE AWESOME!

Kogarashi on Would Treasure tokens trigger Reckless …

2 years ago

It does work.

When you create an artifact token such as a Treasure token or a copy of Mishra's Self-Replicator , it enters the battlefield as an artifact. Reckless Fireweaver doesn't care if the artifact entering the battlefield is a token or not, only that it's an artifact.

So yes, Fireweaver will trigger from Treasure tokens, and each token entering the battlefield will trigger Fireweaver separately from the others. If you create three Treasure tokens, that will be three triggers.
