Phyrexia's Core Discussion
2 weeks ago
So you might think if adding even more mana rocks like Mind Stone, Thran Dynamo, Hedron Archive, Worn Powerstone, Blinkmoth Urn, Everflowing Chalice, Gilded Lotus, Palladium Myr, or Iron Myr. You should be ramping as much as possible, you could even consider Extraplanar Lens if budget is no concern. You could consider cards like Myr Retriever, Goblin Welder, Buried Ruin, Goblin Engineer, Junk Diver, purphorous, bronze-blooded or Daretti, Scrap Savant to bring artifacts back from the graveyard. You could consider Mystic Forge, Planar Bridge, or Kuldotha Forgemaster for getting artifacts out of your deck and onto the battlefield. Darksteel Forge, Soul of New Phyrexia, or Eldrazi Monument so you're killing your artifacts only when you want to. Unwinding Clock it's good if you combine it with flash from Shimmer Myr or Vedalken Orrery. Ugin, the Ineffable or Foundry Inspector to reduce the casting cost of your artifacts without affecting the cmc. You could go full ham on some big artifact creatures like Myr Battlesphere, Meteor Golem, Duplicant, Ancient Stone Idol, Mycosynth Golem, Darksteel Colossus, Blightsteel Colossus, Platinum Angel, or Platinum Emperion just to name a few. Other ideas might be Hellkite Tyrant to steal your opponents artifacts Mycosynth Lattice to turn your non-artifacts into artifacts, Illusionist's Bracers or Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient to copy bosh's abilities, Swiftfoot Boots and/or Lightning Greaves to protect your big guy, Voltaic Key or Manifold Key to untap your rocks, or Mind's Eye or incidental card draw. Some lands to think about are Myriad Landscape, Darksteel Citadel, and Phyrexia's Core but not much else.
As per suggestions to take out : Catalyst Elemental, Destructive Digger, Forge Armor, Walking Atlas, Nahiri's Wrath, Wily Goblin (use Dockside Extortionist), Azor's Gateway Flip, Furious Rise, Generator Servant, Pirate's Pillage, Scarecrone, Filigree Familiar just to name a few.
I would like to start by saying I'm not trying to say your deck is bad, just trying to give you a lot of ideas to go off of and pointing out things that don't really go with the theme of the deck, which is ramp super hard, drop a bunch of big threats, drop bosh and kill opponents. Secondly, I am not a competitive deck builder by any means, I just use the data I have and suggest the things I like. I actually like seeing gosh in the command zone.

I also have a Traxos deck and it is my favorite deck to play. It's on my page if you'd like to see it.
May I also suggest:
Meekstone: Great stax-y control
Endbringer: Really great versatile card.
Ugin, the Ineffable: Card draw, spell cost reduction and removal on a snek.
Phyrexia's Core: Sometimes you just need a sac outlet.

You didn't ask but I've some cards to offer up for consideration :-) Saheeli's Artistry -a sweet card in an artifact and a namesake spell for the commander.

Phyrexia's Core could be a fun land for this deck.

Thanks for the suggestions austintayshus!
I also don't think I run enough recursion to warrant playing cards that are sac outlets over others but Phyrexia's Core is a good idea as it takes nothing to replace a wastes with it.

I also made a Traxos deck and it's one of my favorite decks to play! You can find it on my page if you want some ideas.
Some cards that I would recommend are
Meekstone is fun, but might piss some people off.
Piston Sledge is always fun
Phyrexia's Core is a decent sac outlet when you need it
All Is Dust is always a one-sided boardwipe with this deck.
Hope this helps!

I've been considering swapping out Phyrexia's Core for Buried Ruin or Academy Ruins . I feel like we have plenty of other sack outlets and getting back a key combo piece from the graveyard is more important.
I dropped Mind Stone as I found its value questionable. Mox Opal is better as ramp and enables the possibility of a pre-turn 3 combo but I don't have $500 for them so I filled the slot with the Myr Retriever . After quite a bit of play testing Myr Retriever is a must in this deck (3-4). I dropped one Scrap Trawler . You want to keep one around for the classic combos in this deck.
The London Mull Rule will help us a lot. It might even be better to turn this into a blue deck to protect our combo instead of trying to find the combo with Ancient Stirrings .
There are some interesting possibilities in white too but I won't bring them up here. See the .

For future reference, Commander's Sphere doesn't tap for any mana in a colorless Commander deck. Commander's Sphere specifies that it taps for a color in the commander's color identity, and Kozilek, the Great Distortion clearly doesn't have any colors, so Commander's Sphere can't tap for any mana. Try running Magnifying Glass instead! It provides card draw and ramp!
You should also consider running other lands over the tron lands and the Locus lands. Yeah, sure, they're really sweet if they're online, but you'll rarely get all of the pieces on the board if you draw them naturally. Maybe try Inventors' Fair , High Market , Phyrexia's Core , Reliquary Tower , and Haven of the Spirit Dragon .
