    Maybe it wants a Tit Song, Karn, or March.

    Trying to avoid running Geddons and Wildfire.

    Some number of Tezzeret the Seeker should be in this deck.

    You're more than halfway to running The Abyss as a hoser. Lightning Greaves can protect the 2 dudes you want alive. Or Guardian Beast keeps Moxen alive through P Deeds - though I'd stick with creature control.

    A resolved Wurmcoil Engine is a nightmare in Legacy, and I would imagine it's even harsher with a 1:75 ratio of Plows:Deck. A T3 Engine is good against aggro and control, mediocre vs. combo. Where's the other Tezz?
  4.  
    They reprinted Guardian Beast in white. The card is called Leonin Abunas. ::thumbs up::

    Wurmcoil Engine.............HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.

    That may have to get in there.

    Seeker is much more of a beating than the Agent.

    Tutor + Put in to Play...I mean. How many cards do you see that on?

    The list is very short. This is stuff like Tinker (ridic powerful), Tooth (9 mana, 2 of it green), ReapSow (only a land, and its 4 mana, Rotate (only a land, need to sac a land in order to do it), Natural Order...etc.

    That said, with so few black cards that go well with the artifacts, it could get a shot.

    I'd hate to have the Agent in play and mize the Seeker. NOMBO.

    8 / 300... I can't do math good, but I ran 4 Tezz in my Legacy deck, and I never felt like complaining. Though I guess if you resolve each and every spell against your opponent (your 7-year-old niece?) I can see how those extra Tezzes might muck up in your hand.

    Abunas... meh. It's okay I guess, but honestly I like Sanctum Garg better. I played him in my Legacy Stax ages ago, and I was surprised how good it was cranking just a flying E Wit. Again, I guess Gargoyle doesn't have any targets when your niece lightning bolts her own creatures. Did she put together your aggro build?

    It's probably worth a shot considering the alternative black cards available for 5C Brown.

    Right. That's why it's similar numbers of Guardian White Beast and SancGarg. One the protects the goodies in play. One undoes any damage that's already been done.

    Glad Burning Wish for Meltdown is out of 5C.

    Side Note:

    Want to know the shitty thing about Legacy players? They can't stop talking about Legacy. Type 1 in my threads or STFU.

    -1 Mephidross Vamp -2 Buried Alive -2 Mind Twist +4 Tezz A of B +1 Sphinx of the Steel Win

    -4 Worldly Tutor +4 Sylvan Library

    -4 Mystical Teachings +4 Impulse

    -4 Verdant Catacombs -1 Island -1 Lonely Sandbar +4 Mishra's Workshop

    The Grand Architect slot is fighting with another 1U Counterspell, like Mana Leak.

    Architect is just awesome. He buffs both Mages, giving the opportunity to beatdown with a decent clock if the opponent has things to stop your artifact plan.

    Not to mention that he's a Sol Ring for Artifacts that can turn your other guys into Mox Crystals for artifacts.

    The Covetous Dragon slot is fighting with Izzet Guildmage.

    Covetous Dragon is an easy cast and an evasive, fast clock that has nice synergy with Wildfire.

    Izzet Guildmage is just really disruptive if you get to untap with him and he works with the Architect's +1+1 very nicely.

    Fabricate was just missing from previous lists and it really should have been in there considering this has a few 2 card combo kills in it along with the basic cast and activate incubator plan.

    When you have Bringer, or Ruins it can get Mindslaver.

    When you have Salvagers, it can get Lotus.

    When you have Welder, it can get Jar.

    And Worldly Tutor can fetch up the first half of any of those.

    Pentuvas, while an Ace with Goblin Welder, has probably outworn his usefulness. Those 2 slots are probably where Inkmoth Leviathan and something like either Muse Vessel or Upheaval need to go.

    Thoughts?
