Steel Overseer Discussion

Blade of Selves on something big is fun but on Sharding Sphinx you can easily end up with dozens or hundreds of thopters as each thopter produces multiple tokens each combat round.

Steel Overseer is not as fun but $13.00 cheaper...

Hey, thanks for the additional info.

For causal upgrades my advice is add cards that give you repeatable value; either draw, artifact tokens or pump for tokens. Cards in the original precon to consider adding:

Other changes to consider:

Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer is a strong casual card with artifacts. It creates a Myr at your combat step then all token creatures you control can become any token creature you control. You can make all Thopters/Servos into Myrs for a huge Myr Battlesphere attack or make all Myrs/Servos into Thopters for a big flying army attack with Sharding Sphinx to double your army after combat damage.

Temple of the False God is not a good land for your deck because you can't tap it to make mana until your fifth turn at the earliest. It's not worth playing because of this and honestly it's not worth playing in any deck, but that's another discussion.

Sin Prodder can be repeatable draw, but more times than not an opponent will take the damage and have you put the card into your graveyard which is not helping you. Steel Overseer has great interaction with artifact tokens especially Thopters. It also has good interaction with Unwinding Clock letting you on everyone's turn put a counter on all your artifact tokens.

For control you've added three very good counterspells (Counterspell, Swan Song and Negate). Broken Concentration and Silumgar's Scorn don't compare to these other counterspells, that's why you should consider cutting them. Stoic Rebuttal because of the artifact theme activating metalcraft is good enough to add. Instead of more control, focus on your artifact game plan with Saheeli?

I always liked the idea of affinity/robots and tried splashing with with lots of colors. Between the mana issues and seeing so much value in colorless land ended up not splashing. This ended up not only being fun as hell, but so versatile and resilient that it's beating lots of competitive decks in testing.

Bottled Cloister, Sea Gate Wreckage, and Ghirapur Orrery have some pretty crazy interaction for draw.

The Ozolith is insane with modular creatures since it doubles their counters when they die.

General shenanigans with the Urza lands and Walking Ballista, Hangarback Walker, and Animation Module/Steel Overseer continue to be unpredictable and explosive as well.

Great budget deck!

I would suggest you add 4 copies of Steel Overseer, (It's budget now) and some Arcbound Ravagers. (It's dropped in price a lot) I would take out the Dolmen Gates and a few other cards.

Pretty clear cut. My username is based on Steel Overseer, so...

My hot take, that I'm sure you've heard one billion times... why not play hardened scales? I know it's not the same, and most lists dont even run Steel Overseer anymore, but its fastest version and IMO the most resilient. I enjoy your content, but would always love to see you at least take a stab at it :)

Ok, here's my suggestion, using lands and then just the cards you've listed above here:

Now, this is probably the best you can build from what you have shown here. But there are improvements you can then work towards, as a lot of these cards aren't optimal. And depending on the format, some aren't legal (for instance, Counterspell isn't modern legal). I think the following would be a good place to start a decent shell to start a stronger deck from:

From that, you could start working towards something like this, in the longer term (most the additions are pretty cheap and affordable cards):

Hope this helps!! :)
