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.

liquid_water Phyrexian Colossus is a childhood favorite, so I don't have a specific strategy in mind by having that card in my deck. lol. I think swapping Witching Well for Clock of Omens makes sense. I like Frogify in the deck to deal with combo creatures.

Phyrexian Colossus has won me games, but Epochrasite could probably be switched out I'll look into grabbing some Hedron Archive thanks!

id cut Phyrexian Colossus and Epochrasite seem pretty weak, youd be better cutting them for more ramp, getting double Dreamstone Hedron could be juicy or its little bro Hedron Archive or the smallest brother Mind Stone

I'm going to suggest you change this completely, here it goes! :)

Golems. Big golems. Go golem tribal like Altar Golem, Colossus of Sardia, Platinum Emperion, Phyrexian Colossus, Mage-Ring Responder, Colossus of Akros, etc.

But a weakness is many do not untap...but wait! Artifacts like Magewright's Stone, Voltaic Construct, Thousand-Year Elixir, Clock of Omens, Voltaic Key, etc. do just that. More fun though can be had with Threaten effects that you can use either on opponents' stuff or to untap your own. Interactive decks few!

A fun twist would be to have Bosh, Iron Golem out + Hijack, etc + Liquimetal Coating/Silverskin Armor to fling any of their creatures back into their faces.

And there's lots of fun utility golems to abuse. Ancestral Statue can bounce a big guy who attacked and just recast cheaply due to Rakdos' ability. Solemn Simulacrum is a staple. Beast of Burden takes advantage of token decks. Glass Golem's art looks wicked ;). Precursor Golem can add in some 1-shot draw spells like Crimson Wisps to draw a ton if lucky. Sundering Titan for fun control.

Feldon of the Third Path, Daretti, Scrap Servant, Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient, Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer, Tuktuk the Explorer, and Urabrask the Hidden are all legendaries that play nicely with a theme like this I think.

So keep your burn/damage to activate Rakdos' ability, add some haste enabler like Fervor so your golems can attack upon entering, include fun enchantments like Blood Mist, Flameshadow Conjuring, and Mana Echoes.

Artisan of Kozilek doesn't really do anything in this deck. Also Colossus of Akros, Colossus of Sardia, Guardian of the Ages, Phyrexian Colossus, and Teeka's Dragon are not very good cards. You could probably get rid of some of your equipments and add Grafted Exoskeleton(reduces the amount of damage bosh has to do). I would also drop Mirrorworks, by my count you only have 5 artifacts with enter the battlefield triggers so it doesn't seem to do anything in here. I would also add Semblance Anvil and everything that was suggested in the thread you posted. Hope this helped.

Sweet deck!

Your approach is a little unconventional, but really interesting. However I would definatly take out Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer, since he has no synergy with the deck. Guardians of Meletis,Traveler's Amulet and Sawtooth Loon are far to weak for commander.

Since Brago flickers your creatures, you could add some golem that have the typical "does not untap unless..." clause since the will reenter the battlefield untapped. Mage-Ring Responder and Altar Golem or Phyrexian Colossus are some of these. Also you should stick some staples like Path to Exile in your deck. Karn Liberated is not only sweet but technically also a golem!

+1 for the idea!
