Phyrexia's Core Discussion

Adameus2012 Yeah I have already considered running Spire of Industry but need to spend some more time playtesting and figuring out what to replace it with first. I don’t think Glimmervoid is worth the risk here, as if it’s played early there are just too many ways to lose it. Also if I were to add Power Depot it would probably mean ditching Llanowar Reborn to prevent slowing my deck down too much, and that’s not a swap that seems reasonable.

But yes, i am thinking of swapping in 3 Spire of Industry at this point - I just need to run the math on what I can take out for it (probably the Phyrexia's Core and 2 Forest )

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.

As general value cards Phyrexian Metamorph Phyrexia's Core and Cyclonic Rift (unless that one is too much(?))

If you want to beef up the token theme then perhaps Sai, Master Thopterist Steel Overseer Thopter Spy Network Efficient Construction or mirrodin Beseiged

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

Thanks for the suggestions austintayshus!

unfortunately for me, Meekstone and All Is Dust are too out of the budget for me, all of the expensive cards in the deck are cards I already own.

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.

Thanks!

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

Hope this helps!
