Etherium Smuggler

Creature - Human Rogue


Whenever Etherium Smuggler deals combat damage to an opponent, create an Energy Cell token (It's a colorless artifact token with ", , sacrifice this token: You get .")


I was going to name it Etherium Cell, as Tezzeret the Schemer makes, but they are obviously very different from this idea. So an Energy Cell is the next best thing.

Make a non-artifact, non-Eldrazi colorless creature.

very nice deck! i like it. have u considered adding another tezzeret ( Tezzeret the Schemer )? it never hurts to make urself some lotus petals ;) also with such artifact heavy deck u could easly run Thopter Assembly + Time Sieve for infinite turns. besides this "add" suggestions - im definietly gonna test it myself ;) good job!

As for cards to remove, though, I would suggest removing cards that try to take your deck in a different direction. If you want to go all in on the combo, then this is what I'd suggest. Crypt Ghast can go. Combo doesn't need extort to win, and you don't have many swamps. Tezzeret the Schemer is even worse ramp. Athreos, God of Passage actually doesn't help your combo, it hurts it by giving control to your opponents. Better to just have more tutors. Aether Gale and Depths of Desire don't do much to support your gameplan, so I'd toss them. It's good to interact with opponents, but if your deck can win without caring what anyone else is doing, that's a good enough reason to focus your deck on protecting your game plan instead of interaction. After all, there's no need to interact with an opponent you can kill.

Grubbernaut, thanks a lot! I really liked the idea of putting Stonecoil Serpent , Fabled Passage and Animating Faerie ... I'll try these ones in place of Tezzeret the Schemer , Prakhata Pillar-Bug and Evolving Wilds .

JARTLEONHART on How to equip Helm of …

1 year ago

In order to have multiple copies of helm of the host, you need 3 pieces:

Helm of the Host : Simple. There is only 1 card that suit this role.

A "turn an artifact into creature" card. There are tons of these in different colors, but most are blue:

An "except is not legendary"/"maintain name" clone:

There are some cards that suits the role 2, but don't let you equip the clone. For example: March of the Machines

Conclussion: It's not easy to get it, but possible. It get's lot easier when you add a 4th role as Mirror Gallery letting any clone be of use.

Cards I run in affinity that could help you here:

Master of Etherium : would be a 5/5 then get the +whatever/+whatever, plus pump your team

Karn, Scion of Urza : Can either be card draw or create tokens that when enchanted become at least 6/6's

Springleaf Drum : Especially w/ Memnite , can make insane starts by going Ornithopter , Ornithopter , Memnite , land, Springleaf Drum Springleaf Drum , Signal Pest . Just allows for more explosive nut draws.

Memnite : See above.

Cranial Plating : Easy to make your stuff huge quick.

Thoughtcast : Usually 1 mana for 2 cards. 2/3 of Ancestral Recall .

Inventors' Fair : Keep your life high and be able to tutor for specific artifacts

Spire of Industry : Almost always a 50 cent Mana Confluence

Blinkmoth Nexus : Another artifact land

Cards you should consider cutting:

Skilled Animator : Just a more fragile Ensoul Artifact

Blackmail : This deck is leaning on the faster side and you already have 10 Thoughtseize effects. Blackmail is the worst of them.

Tezzeret the Schemer : Inefficient removal, and the ult will never happen.


This is just my 2 cents, I hope you take these into considerati

cireretals on Oathbreaker Tier List

I like the idea of this list. Its a good tool to help a play group stay on the same level. Clearly its not cut and dry, the 58 have a bigger impact, but this is a starting place. And if you don't mind talking about specific cases I'm curious as to why some cards that are clearly more powerful alone are rated lower. Not an argument or anything like that, just curious as I have not played the format extensively. Things like Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas vs Tezzeret the Schemer Agent of Bolas seems like a much stronger choice to me.
