Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer and Iname, Death Aspect... in the same tier as Veldrane of Sengir? This list needs a lot of work.

Slobad, Cursed to Live

Legendary Planeswalker - Slobad

+1 Put a charge counter or +1/+1 counter on target artifact.

+1 Target artifact becomes indestructible until end of turn.

-7 Return all artifacts in your graveyard to your hand, then shuffle your graveyard into your library.


Looks like Slobad gave up his spark to bring back all the people whose souls were being used as fuel by Memnarch. He was also a planeswalker for only like twenty minutes--he got a spark from Glissa, but didn't do much with it. The second ability is straight from Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer .

Anyway, create a card showing a literal or metaphorical release to freedom--broken chains, fulfilled duty, something like that.

Arcaneful on How Can a Scrap Mastery …

Hello! I've played Bosh amongst tons of other mono red artifact decks, so I would like to give my 2 cents on him while answering your questions.

  1. Mono red is a very fun artifact deck. I've built Daretti, Scrap Savant, Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer, Bosh, Iron Golem and Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient. While Bosh is SUPER fun, I felt he was too slow, fragile, and mana intensive. If you insist on running him I'd recommend running protection cards such as Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, and Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer. While I loved all of these as commanders, I felt that Slobad was my favorite. Free sac outlet in the command zone/protection for key on the field artifacts is nothing to scoff at. In terms of adding other colors, you could certainly do that. I've also run a deck like this with Rakdos, Lord of Riots. Scrap Mastery was a bit of a backup plan, but saved me post boardwipe many a time. The deck revolved around pinging opponent and using Rakdos's reduction ability to play giant artifact creatures. I don't sadly have the list on me anymore, (I don't believe) but I will return after this comment to repost if I find it.

Sadly I never inputted a list before taking it apart as my playgroup didn't exactly enjoy it. What I can recommend though is a lot of egg cards. Egg is a term for a card like Chromatic Star/Ichor Wellspring. They add mana/cards when sacced/etb. When using Scrap Mastery you can get a bunch of Card Advantage after these re=enter the field.

When playing general reanimator decks you need to watch out for for graveyard hate. One Tormod's Crypt and your whole deck is ruined! Cards like Perpetual Timepiece are irreplaceable, as they not only mill you for more cards to Scrap Mastery back, but can save your grave in a pinch! When playing against it I would Bojuka Bog this deck immediately. Graveyard decks are a powerhouse when left unchecked.

I hope some of this helped. Happy brewing!

EDIT: I was looking for my list for Rakdos and found it!

Interesting deck, mine goes more in the combo direction (based on the word "artifact" instead of "creature"), basically a bad Breya with two less colors and with the opposite piece of text on his cardboard (she's the sacrifice outlet while he's what I think of as a Second Sunrise in the command zone).

I like the use of Gift of Immortality, can't believe I never thought of that -- I even have one floating around somewhere, I think.

Also, I might suggest Second Sunrise and Faith's Reward over or in conjunction with Eerie Interlude and its cousin Ghostway because they can serve much the same purpose and have the added utility of comboing off with Gerrard that way (although I suppose you don't have that third piece of the combo).

Of course, all of this advice comes from a player who's Gerrard deck started as a Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer artifact combo deck that I try not to play to often because turns are annoyingly long, so maybe ignore this comment entirely.

Oloro_Magic Thanks! I will definitely try it out when I get the chance. And as to the decklist, I'd heard of the combo before but had always struggled to piece together how it worked (the only ones I can understand just by looking at the cards are artifact sac combos because my friend has a Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer commander deck. Your explanation really gave me the know how of what to counter (if I can) and just how it works in general.
