     elliotmward97: So I actually used to run Red Elemental Blast, Pyroblast, Tibalt's Trickery and Withering Boon but didn't feel I was getting enough mileage out of them. Imp's Mischief and Deflecting Swat are both great in any black and/or red deck, I just don't have a copy of either unfortunately lol.

     Hadn't considered Wishclaw Talisman but I'm definitely going to now! Especially with Goblin Engineer/Goblin Welder is a pretty nifty combo. =D

     Hidetsugu, Devouring Chaos is a card I really liked thematically, but in practice just never felt good to draw. Even going infinite with Dockside and Technomancer requires your opponents to have at least seven Enchantments and Artifacts - which totally is gonna happen sometimes, but definitely not all the time.

     Chandra, Torch of Defiance is another card I used to run (and quite liked) but got cut for Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast as Daretti just synergized with the deck better. Chandra may yet make it back into the deck, though!

     As for cuts, I'm not totally sure but probably Hellkite Tyrant in favour of Ancient Copper Dragon. Tyrant is great but also extremely telegraphed. I'd probably look at Professional Face-Breaker or either Mayhem Devil or Nadier's Nightblade (depending on your playstyle) as a cut for Imperial Recruiter. And although Goblin Welder is a favourite of mine, it's likely on the chopping block if I do pick up a Ragavan.

Thank you for your quick replay, it has helped alot :)

I have a few more cards that i would love to hear your opinion about,if thats okay:

Imp's Mischief and or Tibalt's Trickery are any of these in your mind good enough to include as i dont see that many board wipes/protection in the deck? I added a dead of winter but unsure too if its worth keeping.

Wishclaw Talisman not only for dockside but also since you can stack Goblin Engineer so that it can destroy it before you pass it on.

Also i saw you removed Hidetsugu, Devouring Chaos which i agree isn't the best card but it does have an infinite with Dockside Extortionist and Ruthless Technomancer to get infinite treasure. Do you reckon its still not worth the addition?

In regards to my previous comment, do you know what cards would be suitable to remove for cards that you liked such as Ancient Copper Dragon , Imperial Recruiter and Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer ?

The reason i ask is i am about to buy some missing cards to make a deck inspired by this deck and wanted to know what you thought about cards making way for those above?

Gidgetimer, those are all excellent cards, and I would have no problem using them in another deck that contained black, but none of them use counters (except for Wishclaw Talisman, but I am wary of using a card that is unreliable), and I specifically am using cards that use counters in that deck, so that I can take advantage of the proliferate mechanic to gain greater advantage from them.

Atraxa contains black and you don't currently run any of the traditional black tutors. If you want objectively good cards that tutor then you are looking at Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Diabolic Intent, Imperial Seal, and Grim Tutor. Cruel Tutor, Mastermind's Acquisition, Wishclaw Talisman, Scheming Symmetry, Infernal Tutor, Profane Tutor, and Diabolic Tutor can be useful as in the right deck or if you need more black tutors. Passable options in low powered metas include Diabolic Revelation and Increasing Ambition.

I know a lot of people may be tempted to say that for , there is far better things you can do... but honestly we will almost never pay using mana produced by lands. You can likely get this out T3 in stronger decks.

That aside, mana and 2 life for a card? That's actually some really solid value! Unless I am sorely missing something, I'd definitely run it.

What I noticed in your previous thread is that some users were comparing your Ring of Three Wishes to Wishclaw Talisman, missing the fact that if your deck does not run , you can not have Wishclaw in it. So, I suspect players will compare Book to Necropotence, again missing the fact that without , you can't play it.

So, in NON-BLACK decks, I think Book of Rass is a very solid choice. Even in black decks, it's a very stable alternate engine.

Given that it is not a tap ability, this makes it repeatable. I suspect it is 59 cents because people can not get over that mana. Again, who cares. Even if you drop it Turn 6 for 6 mana produced by lands, your very next turn you are guarenteed 3 cards if that is all you do.

Solid card. I'd run it, now that I actually know about it ;)

  • (Also, in my personal experience both on this site as well as in LGSs, most people abhorrantly hate Greed, again citing that Necropotence is superior in every way. Well, Greed is a wonderful budget option, and again - why not have 2 or 3 alternate options? What happens when your Potence is destroyed? Or exiled? Or bounced? Or you simply never get it out? Redundancy is the key to success.)

Wishclaw Talisman is a good replacement

It’s a terrible card. Just stick with regular tutors or try cards that get you the specific card types that you need like Birthing Pod or Fauna Shaman, etc. I use Wishclaw Talisman in my Aminatou deck.

Swapped in Final Parting for Sporemound under Ardees's request for less exp counter focus and swapped in Wishclaw Talisman for Corpse Connoisseur because it is a cheaper tutor that while giving my opponents the tutor effect can offer me up another tutor if I can convince them. Also with the talisman I am not putting the card in to my graveyard and I prefer to keep what I am tutoring for private that way they don't get their counters ready for my infinite combo or AOZ.
