nbarry223 on No Land Challenge It Definitely Has To Be Affinity

I'd say that evoke cards where you exile a card to pay the cost, like Fury and its cycle, the Force of Vigor cycle, the Nourishing Shoal cycle are all some solid options here.

Paradise Mantle would definitely be a solid option as a free card that could potentially do something for you, but I'm struggling to think up a way to get that one mana without lands to equip, since Mox Opal and Simian Spirit Guide are both banned. Leyline of Abundance might be worth considering as well, but it's probably not that amazing, since you'd only have the mantle to enable it.

Ah - Chancellor of the Tangle

Ok, now that you can produce some mana, you could potentially do some really stupid stuff, not sure how far down the rabbit hole you want to go though.

I'd say a solid enabler as well would be Wild Cantor since it is two colors for your free cards if you decide to go that route, and it could store your mana from Chancellor of the Tangle

You could also now play Aether Vial to cheat stuff in.

There's lots of convoke cards begging to be broken as well, and you can get black creatures out in the form of Salvage Titan, so that's just something to think about.

If you were willing to play some of the flip lands that are technically not lands, I'm sure you could do some crazy convoluted stuff and win with Laboratory Maniac without lands, but it would no longer be an affinity deck, and you could argue it did technically have lands. I'm thinking convoke Endless Obedience into Angel of Glory's Rise after basically dumping your deck into the graveyard.

That's a far cry from the current build of the deck, so I'm just mentioning it instead of suggesting it.

Some thoughts:

  • I don’t think Altar of the Brood helps you here. You’re never likely to mill your opponent out this way, and i’m not sure its a strategy you want to be pushing.

  • the upcoming card Consider seems useful for this deck, for helping you find Mirrodin Besieged while also filling your graveyard. Mishra's Bauble is also amazing for the same reason. Likewise, Chromatic Sphere and Chromatic Star hugely accelerate your gameplan - you could easily end up running a bunch of these effects and creating a very fast & consistent engine.

  • I’m surprised you’re not running more copies of Salvage Titan - it seems like a great way to fill the grave and accelerate your win.

  • You need Mirrodin Besieged to have a chance of winning: you should be running the full playset.

  • I don’t think you need Etherium Sculptor. It’s not an artifact, and most your stuff is cheap. I get it helps with Mystic Forge but that feels far too narrow a use-case (Personally i’d also ditch the forge).

  • Relic of Progenitus is better than Tormod's Crypt here because it draws you a card. This ties in with many of my suggestions above, bug you really want your artifacts to be cheap, and replace themselves. That way you’ll find your win condition quickly, and have the fuel required to achieve it fast.

Every since I saw this deck years ago, I've always wanted to make a version of it in my favorite format, modern, but Mana Severance wasn't legal. This the flip cards are a great way to get around that, and I never thought of using Sword of the Meek + Salvage Titan + Vengevine to supply that extra damage. +1

Hi Saccox, thank you for your suggestions, I appreciate the consideration given to my deck.

As I said months ago, I'm not a good player, but your cards seems a little bit out of my porpuse... The deck has just been played once: lost (14 artifacts in graveyard instead of 15 when Mirrodin Besieged checked...), so what's missed were cards able to fill the graveyard with artifacts and at the same time being able to slow down the opponent (gaining time to find Mirrodin Besieged ). Nitty gritty: cards like Salvage Titan or Altar of Dementia would be great.

Let me know if you are more lucky with the deck

3> Ahhh I've been wanting to play with Obosh, the Preypiercer and Angrath's Marauders - glad you found a spot for them. While you're at it, you could also consider other "damage doublers" such as Wound Reflection and Fiendish Duo. I've thought about a Vial-Smasher deck with a White partner just to add Gisela, Blade of Goldnight.

3> I see you enjoy big monsters and X-spells here. Oh to be young again... but seriously, this seems like a good deck to play them in as you would be rewarded. Instants are your friend, as you can Smash Vials on everyone's turn! No Comet Storm?

3> I would be worried about Vial-Smasher getting nuked from orbit as soon as your turn passes and it's no longer indestructible. You'll find Heroic Intervention and Slippery Bogbonder will help with targeted Exile removal. You already have Destroy and Sacrifice covered I see.

3> I see some cost-reduced and commander-free spells in there, but you have a limited suite. While doing research for my thoughts on Vial-Smasher, I found the following might be helpful - list is just copy/paste, so it will include some White and/or Blue cards:

abby315 fair. I believe I used incorrect descriptors xD.

Also, Dreadscythe's design is heavily built on mechanics that define Yu-gi-oh but are entirely nonexistant in Magic, or at least very rare.

First, the cost of monsters in yugioh(AFAIK) is mostly sacrificing other monsters. This effect does happen in Magic on occasion.

Second, most creatures that can protect themselves have a mana cost to become protected... which is a lot harder to work with compared to yugioh.

After reading the card, the best thing I can find is Salvage Titan. It can be cheated into play, the cheating-into-play cost provides the resource for the 'come back from the dead' ability, and it's a reasonable size.

I've brewed with the card, but it has no in-play abilities... meaning it's not a great card. In MtG, a creature without any combat abilities is really not worth it.

Prized Amalgam can be returned to the battlefield if you mill a Narcomoeba.

You can play Salvage Titan by sacrificing 3 artifacts and you can get 3 artifacts into play by milling a Narcomoeba to return Sword of the Meeks to your battlefield attached to it and also sacing Memnites and/or Ornithopters.

It seems like your Thopter Foundry, Salvage Titan, and your other artifacts clash. The artifacts you have require sacrificed to be used. So you could be in a game waiting to sacrifice them until you get a Thopter Foundry or Salvage Titan that may or may not come. Or the opposite happens where you sacrifice your artifacts for their effects and then you can't take advantage of the 2 cards your really want out. I would look getting out artifacts like equipments or maybe some cheap Myrs.

Look into Myr Propagator, Alloy Myr, Gold Myr, Hovermyr, Leaden Myr, Myr Battlesphere, Myr Moonvessel, Myr Retriever, Myr Sire, Myr Turbine, and Palladium Myr. These all serve as a quick creatrue to get out, supply more mana for the big creatrues, or even supply you with plenty of endless artifacts for Thopter Foundry and Salvage Titan.
