This deck started from the idea of using Maskwood Nexus to make all creatures trigger Magda, Brazen Outlaw effect since there are not enough good dwarfs in red to make a good Dwarf Tribal deck.

After play testing the deck evolved to what I have here: a combo centered deck focused on using Magda, Brazen Outlaw's activated ability to bring out the pieces to one of several combos within 4 activations to win the game.

Treasure Hunting Show

  1. Kyren Negotiations: a great enchantment that not only allows you to tap your creatures at instant speed but ping your enemies for 1 at the same time.
  2. Mobile Garrison: Vehicles are great in this deck since they are free infinite instant tap outlets that are searchable by Magda, Brazen Outlaw. Mobile Garrison is good in particular because you can double tap 1 creature each turn if it attacks, since Mobile Garrison's trigger has you untap an artifact or creature. You can also use this to get a second activation of one of the tap artifacts.
  3. Smuggler's Copter: A great, cheap to cast, cheap to crew, flying vehicle with optional looting. I am always happy when I see this in my opening hand.
  4. Dwarven Bloodboiler: Free instant speed creature tapping that when tapped itself creates treasure with Magda, Brazen Outlaw on board. Searchable by Dwarven Recruiter and Imperial Recruiter.
If one is good then two is better. A truism this deck takes to heart and puts to good use with the below cards.
  1. Helm of the Host: At the start of every combat phase make another Magda, Brazen Outlaw. Usually win the game if you get two combat phases with this attached to Magda. This is almost always the first thing I get when I activate Magda, Brazen Outlaw.
  2. Lithoform Engine: Need to double a triggered or activated ability, a instant or sorcery spell, or even a permanent? This is the card you want. The two main reasons I get Helm of the Host over this is that Helm allows me to make copies of Magda, Brazen Outlaw and does it for free. Other than that this card is excellent in the deck as it allows you to double Magda's activated ability.
  3. Illusionist's Bracers: Doubles Magda, Brazen Outlaw activations for no extra cost. Great to get to see early since it is cheap to cast and halves your time to win when attached to Magda.

Please note that this deck also runs Cloudstone Curio and Dockside Extortionist which under the right board states can generate infinite treasure tokens as well. This combo is gone over in more detail in the combo section were the Infinite ETB triggers are weaponized to win the game.

Combos Show

The Maybe Board is full of different options you could swap into the deck to change the way it plays. If you are not a fan of the combos this deck is focused around just swap out those pieces for what you like from the maybe board. There are pieces to lots of different play styles in there.

Monored is a new deck building experience for me so if you think I missed a great option for the deck, I would really appreciate you pointing it out to me. Also if you liked the deck or picked up an idea or two for your own decks I would appreciate if you could Upvote Thank you.


Updates Add

  1. Plundering Barbarian - added in place of Dwarven Nomad since it can make up to 2 treasures on the turn it comes something Dwarven Nomad cannot do.
  2. Xorn - added in place of Storm-Kiln Artist since it doubles the amount of treasure generated per tapped dwarf and adding 1 to the number of treasures generated via Dockside Extortionist means we can go off 1 artifact or enchantment less. Storm-Kiln Artist was removed simply because I feel the deck does not run enough instant and sorceries to take advantage of its effect. Would be worth including in a more spellslinging deck.
  3. Hoarding Ogre - Added because the expected value on attack without Maskwood Nexus or Magda, Brazen Outlaw on the field is 1.6 treasures which is .6 higher than any other creature card even with both other cards on the field. Not only does it average more treasure per attack, but allows you to keep making treasure even if Magda, Brazen Outlaw is hated off the field as long as there is a safe attack.
  4. Treasure Vault - A mana sink for the turns where you have 2 or more unspent mana or where you just need a few more treasure for the final activation of Magda, Brazen Outlaw to win the game.
  5. Unexpected Windfall - replaced Pirate's Pillage as a strictly better version of this effect, since it is an instant and not a sorcery. The extra red mana does not matter since this is a mono-red deck.
