Trophy Mage Discussion

Hey nice deck :) you could add Trophy Mage as a tutor for Phyrexian Altar and if you did swap out Open the Graves for Desecrated Tomb as a 3cmc artifact aswell to generate infinite bat tokens. You would lose the upkeep-trigger from Scarab dude, but with infinite mana/flying tokens winning shouldn't be an issue. Might add this myself to my Deck, got inspired from your Open the Graves inclusion.

Planning to add in Anathemancer. I think I might take out Trophy Mage, which can currently only pull back three cards (Worn Powerstone, Darksteel Ingot, or Commander's Sphere)

TheTryH4rd on Urza, Lord High Artificer

First of all, I really appreciate the feedback! Your insight into Rings of Brighthearth vs Power Artifact is hugely helpful. I hadn't given thought to how much easier it would be to get Rings out. In thinking about swapping those two, including Trophy Mage seems a good move for more tutor.

As to the Memnarch issue, that particular problem of wanting fun cards like Memnarch or Walking Ballista, which take advantage of infinite mana, when you have Urza is something I keep struggling with. Though, I wonder if a card like Intuition or Finale of Revelation might not work out better? Finale is less mana efficient certainly but it also doesn't give opponents the opportunity to draw into answers. The Flashback is very appealing though, but it seems once the deck hits infinite mana thats game over no matter what.

I'm not sure how I skipped over Rhystic Study but that oversight has been corrected!!

Thassa's Oracle as another win condition. you won't always be able to rely on AER or Exsanguinate. It always helps to have that extra escape trigger.
Trickbind should also go into this deck to stop the hulk combo decks or just to stop someone that wants to do XY or Z with abilities. Meddling Mage is great for this to hit the flash hulk as well so you have time to combo.

Tribute Mage and Trophy Mage to find your pieces to other things (Scepter, basalt/rings) All in all good deck +1

Nice deck. I personally would run a few less lands(36 or 37), maybe cut a few of the enters tapped lands? Also it might be worth considering the mage cycle (Trinket Mage, Trophy Mage, Tribute Mage) since you seem to have a minor historic spells thing going on, it might need a few more artifacts for that though(Mind Stone, Prismatic Lens, Unstable Obelisk). Finally I'm not sure about the like minor enchantment theme thing you've got going on(Shoal Kraken) I'd either go for something more powerful(Kiora Bests the Sea God, Omen of the Sea, Protean Thaumaturge) or cut it for something lower that's either better draw or lower on the curve. The morphs are lots of fun!

SufferFromEDHD on Equipment Deck Without White? What a great idea :P

4 months ago

Beat me to it. Dalakos, Crafter of Wonders is going to lead to interesting deck design without white. Will be adding my list to the site this week. As for your list, some suggestions: Goblin Engineer , Goblin Welder , Godo, Bandit Warlord , Trophy Mage , Etched Champion , Vedalken Humiliator .
