Sculpting Steel Discussion

Profet93 on Damage with norin :D

3 weeks ago
Ok first of all, +1. I like this deck. Relatively low to the ground for Norin, has a general sense of purpose (dealing damage). I have a several comments and suggestions...

Fanatic of Mogis - I've found him to be lackluster, what has your experience been with it, do you usually have enough devotion to make him meaningful?

Pia and Kiran Nalaar - Similar to above, but I see you have another theme of tokens and damage dealing ETB enchantments/cards. I just find the activated ability to expensive and slow. I would always rather play something from my hand.

Deflecting Swat - Such an amazing card, but if only Norin could stay. What has your experience been with it in Norin, I'm very tempted to slot one in.

Sculpting Steel - Same question as above?

What is your meta comprised of, power level?

Darksteel Citadel - What is the purpose of this, stealing an artifact with confusion?

Roiling Vortex - Meta call?

Cloudstone Curio - Experience with this card, ups and downs?

It feels you suffer from red's lack of card draw, to be addressed in suggestions below. You have virtual card advantage through looting, but little card advantage aside from wheels and a little others.

Tome of Legends - Best card for Norin ever printed. Don't sleep on this

Endless Atlas - Almost as good as above

Hedron Archive/Mind Stone - Ramp when you need it, card draw when you don't

Mind's Eye/Memory Jar - Top of the curve for draw but can help you out when you need then late game. Mind's eye is especially fun with wheels and Honor-Worn Shaku, as you use shaku + norin and mind's eye to draw during each opponents draw step.

Blast Zone - Speaking of red's weakness, this can work as enchantment removal.

I think you should cut some of the less impactful non basics and add more basics. This will fuel valakut and will help you with extraplanar lens - which itself is a very risky card.

A cool combo (not a serious suggestion but funny to note) is Ugin, the Ineffable + Top + Experimental Frenzy = Draw your whole deck. Each piece is good on it's own (maybe even frenzy in this deck given your lack of card draw?) and Ugin works as both card draw and enchantment removal.

Heat Shimmer + Dualcaster = Infinite Hasty Dualcasters, each piece is good on it's own. There are 1-2 other cards that work with dualcaster as well but escape me at the moment.

Light Up the Stage - With all your damage dealing, this is easy to cast, works well with top too, allowing you to knowingly be able to cast a card rather than risk it in exile.

Ignite the Future - Similar to above but flashback payoff has won me games.

Curse of Opulence - Ramp and politics. I recently had 2 games in a row in a 3 man pod where me and opponent #2 both cast this on opponent #3 on Turn 1. Very fun

Outpost Siege - Draw when you need it, damage when you don't, primarily used for draw in my experience

Sharuum the Hegemon targets a clone artifact in the graveyard is an infinite loop.

Suppose you target Sculpting Steel in the graveyard, "as it enters" you choose to become a copy of Sharuum the Hegemon, on state-base-action you have to send one to the graveyard due to the legend rule; then trigger ability of Sharuum goes onto the stack, you can then return either Sculpting Steel or Sharuum the Hegemon back from the graveyard depends on which one you let it die. Repeat for infinite life lose from Disciple of the Vault

AkimotoRiku, thanks for the upvote. Much of current deck description is out of date. I haven't had time to update it yet.

If you can afford a good four color manabase then in my opinion Breya is a much better Commander than Alela because Breya is a combo enabler/win condition. Having a combo piece in the Command Zone who can also be a win condition really increases the power level of a deck. Breya being an artifact is what makes her such a good Commander with artifact strategies and since she can sac herself for her 3 damage to a player mode is what makes her a win condition with combos.

Recently released Double Masters has helped this deck a lot. Breya is reprinted in the set and there's many other cards that are now budget options. The manabase got huge help from the Filter lands, Glimmervoid and I'm watching Sunken Ruins and Academy Ruins. Master Transmuter, Phyrexian Metamorph, Baleful Strix, Sculpting Steel are now very good budget artifacts and I'm watching Darksteel Forge. Arcum Dagsson's price has been cut in half letting me add him back in. Sword of the Meek is now a budget equipment and it combos with Thopter Foundry.

I suppose that I should not be surprised that Jace, the Mind Sculptor is being reprinted in this set, but I still would rather that WotC had reprinted another planeswalker; at least he shall be less expensive, now.

Another reprint of Baleful Strix is great, but I wish that it had been an uncommon, because it is a waste of a rare spot in this set, in my mind. On that subject, I do like how Sharuum the Hegemon has been downgraded to a rare for this set, since I believe that she was not sufficiently powerful to be a mythic rare.

The alternate artwork for Sword of War and Peace is awesome, but I would rather have had any of the other swords in its place; hopefully, they shall also be reprinted in this set.

Sculpting Steel is another very nice reprint; I had been hoping for a reprint of Phyrexian Metamorph, but this is very close to that.

I also very much like the reprint of Lux Cannon; I already have one in my Atraxa EDH deck, but this shall make it easier to obtain a foil copy, which would be very nice.

sharuum + Phyrexian Metamorph + Disciple of the Vault -metamorph can be any artifact copy effect like Sculpting Steel for infinite damage.

Sensei's Divining Top + Etherium Sculptor + Mystic Forge is infinite draw, can also add Aetherflux Resovoir for infinite life to beam people with, also useable with top and Bolas's Citadel

Kogarashi on Can Sculpting Steel still work …

This works the way you think it does.

When Prototype Portal creates a token copy of the imprinted card, that token enters the battlefield. This does implicate the copied Sculpting Steel's replacement effect, allowing you to copy an artifact that is in play with the token.
