The real beaters begin to appear in the 4-drop slots, though in keeping with the theme of a mechanical deck they can be quite conditional. The Sunburst mechanic must be used to its fullest to get the most from the pair of Etched Oracles — the opportunity to draw into three cards should not be taken lightly. Rounding out the position are a further pair of Alara-block cards: These bodies have the potential to usher in our first and most basic win condition.
This slot also contains a pair of Myr Enforcers , which take advantage of the Affinity mechanic to potentially deploy quite cheaply even free.
Just as Green is the colour most inimical towards artifice, Blue has long tended to be its greatest ally of the colours and unsurprisingly shows up to play a small role in support here. Fabricate allows you to tutor for any artifact you need and is tremendously versatile.
Thirst for Knowledge and Keep Watch both offer card drawing though like any conditional spell Keep Watch can range between staggeringly good and dismal , and a Whiplash Trap rounds out the quartet. Tinkerers will note that given the strength of Fabricate, the deck could well be improved by the inclusion of more especially considering that three of our four Win Conditions here are driven by a specific card. The deck also boasts some additional colour fixing two Pentad Prisms , creature enhancement Loxodon Warhammer , and the infamous Cranial Plating , utility two Skeleton Shards and a Serum Tank , and creature token generation Nuisance Engine.
One last note regarding Affinity support: All told, the contents of the deck taken together exhibit the following curve:. Plenty of early plays, and the slightly heavy tail is more than supported by the high number of non-land mana sources the deck deploys. A Solution in Search of a Problem.
Taken together, Metallic Dreams has amazing synergy. Almost every card either directly or indirectly supports another card. We noted in the Phyrexia deck Duel Deck: Metallic Dreams , then, would have a counterpoint objective- have different ways to win, but with as much overlap as possible.

Modern allows cards from the 8th Edition core set and all expansions printed afterwards. Legacy decks may consist of cards from all Magic card sets, any edition of the core set, and all special sets, supplements, and promotional printings released by Wizards of the Coast.
Cards from expansions and special sets like From the Vault, Commander, Duel Decks, etc are legal in the Legacy format on the date of release of the expansion or special set.
