The99 on A Better Oswald Fiddlebender

4 days ago

I'm alternating cards in and out to find the best play lines for my play style and what suits Oswald... I find that Staff of Domination is seldom often the utility I use to close out the game, as with Rings/Bracers my natural tendency is to lean towards Lesser/Mimic. However, with Mesmeric Orb and Myr Welder I can very easily lean "weld" a win with: e.g. Illusionist's Bracers + WWW6 (9cmc) -> Oswald 1cmc -> Magewright's Stone + Mesmeric Orb -> Oswald 2cmc -> Basalt Monolith + Anything (normally Sculpting Steel on Basalt or Trini if needed) -> Basalt/Mesmeric Library -> Cast Sevinne's Reclamation -> Myr Welder + Thousand-Year Elixir -> Imprint Staff of Domination -> Untap Welder -> Imprint any Mana positive rock (Sol Ring, Mana Vault, etc.) -> Untap and produce infinite generic with Myr Welder's Staff/Rock -> Imprint Walking Ballista / Arcum's Astrolabe + Blasting Station (or any other various combinations of things, pending deck). With this play line, I can very aggressively steal a game. Note: Basalt Monolith will ultimately be used to pay the cost of Sevinne's Flashback. Furthermore, Sculpting Steel can copy any rock to help further reduce the burden of mana. This breathes new life into staff and also allows us to play with a finisher that works as recursion (Myr Welder can very easily become Basalt Monolith in a pinch). I hope this answers your question.

Color me inspired! If you don’t mind I gotta steal this deck idea. Why no Sword of War and Peace? Few other card ideas to consider:

rshistorysmuf on Infinite Combo for Monkey Cage?

3 months ago

Sharuum the Hegemon + Nim Deathmantle + Ashnod's Altar

Yes I can see this working but maybe with a Sculpting Steel or Copy Artifact , coupled with Cathodion and a Su-Chi (expensive) with a Junk Diver and a Scrap Trawler ?

However, with Metalwork Colossus because when the Monkey Cage enters and with Ashnod's Altar that is a total of 8 mana, then add in Nim Deathmantle Metalwork Colossus can be retuned to hand and cast for free, creating 11 Apes when sacking the Monkey Cage .

Think we are on to something here.

That's totally cool! I definitely understand that. I know these are kind of strange picks, but I might consider Energy Chamber or Sculpting Steel as budget colorless options.

legendofa on Garth one-eye's "create a copy"

3 months ago

For a little more background to my question, the word "create" has always been used in the context of tokens ( Dragon Fodder ), and "copy" is either initially a verb for instants and sorceries ( Twincast ) or a clone for permanents ( Sculpting Steel ). The new phrase "create a copy" doesn't follow either of these definition.

I assume you are playing all the swords for flavour and I'm fine with that. Some of them really depend on your meta.

Protecting your Voltron commander is so important but you can't use shroud because of how equip works and it limits your options.

If there is deathtouch in your meta a Mirror Shield would be a good extra Hexproof card. Blade of the Bloodchief is a good card for increasing value even if it isn't a vamp. You don't even have to kill the creature.

While the apparent CMC is low, if you have to pay the equip costs, that can be a pain point. Since you are avoiding mana rocks if possible, may I suggest Curse of Opulence . Leads to some fun politics sometimes and I find it can simple take some aggro of you and onto the person you don't like. That would be the person with the deck that makes you sacrifice things.

I agree on the Metal Worker. It draws aggro like mad and you are probably better off without it. I would kill you immediately unless I knew you didn't have a combo in your deck. Sigarda's Aid is an amazing card for equipment decks.

I'd probably cut Sculpting Steel unless you have alot of good artifacts from other people. Explorer's Scope is unlikely to hit anything. Goblin Gaveleer is likely going to die on the first attack.

I would still suggest Fervent Champion . You probably in practice need more cheap creatures to put your equipment on then you need multiple equipments because equipments tend to stick around. Especially if you want to ramp using these cheap creatures.

Good luck.
