Slag Fiend

Creature — Construct

Slag Fiend's power and toughness are each equal to the number of artifact cards in all graveyards.

Rakton The build looks a lot stronger! My current thoughts would be:

  • I think you should ditch Darksteel Forge. Its mana cost is really prohibitive, and i think it would be better to use your treasure towards getting the dragon out, rather than this. This also feels too late-game to be super useful.

  • I’d also ditch Prying Blade, as its a pretty high cost for what you’re getting. Sticky Fingers feels waaay stronger, so maybe run 4x of that if you’re really after this effect.

  • I think you should be running a playset of Galvanic Blast. Interaction is super important in magic, don’t just ket your opponent do what they want! I actually think your deck might be a lot stronger with 8 cards of interaction, so i’d also suggest adding a playset of Dispatch.

  • i’m not sure you get huge value from Slag Fiend here, so maybe that goes to make room for some of the above.

One more suggestion: I know Slag Fiend is the underdog in the deck - but Vedalken Certarch could add a world of pain in terms of denial of resources or blockers very, very quickly.

Perhaps so! Slag Fiend is bad when we're winning, but it's great when we're losing! Plus, there are a lot of Mishra's Bauble s floating around in the meta that also pump Slag Fiend !

I've seen a few b/r artifact lists - from Slag Fiend / Atog brews, strategies that try and cheat Sundering Titan into play, and lots of random combos. Red and black have some really cool artifact-loving creatures and spells - from Wildfire to Disciple of the Vault .

If you are trying to use Embercleave you want 1 drops and go-wide. If you want engineer you want artifacts that like dying and coming back. If you want Gaduk you want to sacrifice artifact creatures and bring them back.

For this list, which wants to go to midrange and pressure life totals hard, I'd run Lightning Bolt + Galvanic Blast + Shrapnel Blast as the spells, and play a lot of 1-of creatures that make or like artifacts if I was going more casual, or grab an established value engine for artifacts if I was trying to be competitive. Having 9 points of burn in hand is a lot easier in artifact lists with red, and black does excellently at applying the pressure to force the life total that low.

Right now, MH2 has given modular a kick, so Arcbound Worker , Myr Scrapling , Sparring Construct . Zabaz, the Glimmerwasp are all still good without dipping into white. Scrapyard Recombiner is also neat. Its not the only option - there are a lot of cards that support artifacts in dealing damage or grinding out attacks - they've been printed in almost every set and they are good. Look at competitive lists sideboards to get a stronger idea of what is out there, or nab strong artifacts that rotate out of standard.

Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

For explosiveness some affinity tools help a lot, but as a budget list its worth using tools which never quite made the cut. Flayer Husk , Golem-Skin Gauntlets , and Signal Pest will help a lot.

Springleaf Drum and Arcum's Astrolabe allows incredibly explosive draws while fixing mana. This lets you run cards like Thoughtcast , Slag Fiend , Spellbombs, etc as you tune the deck.

It is worth looking at champion in the sideboard- he offers a lot for control matchups.I'd also look at Ravenous Trap or Tormod's Crypt for graveyards.
