too big, too fast

Main Deck (60 cards)

Sideboard (0 cards)

No sideboard found.

The owner of this deck hasn't added a sideboard, they probably should...

Submit a list of cards below to bulk import them all into your sideboard. Post one card per line using a format like "4x Birds of Paradise" or "1 Blaze", you can even enter just the card name by itself like "Wrath of God" for single cards.

Deck Description

fast blue artifact hard hitting flyers lil' red in there for galvanic blast and a few more artifact lands biggest issue with this is that you are going to have to rely on a mulligan or 2 before you get the opening hand that this is geared for. any suggestions on how to make it better would be awesome.

if you get a great hand, it's a 6ish/2 flying ornithopter or qumulox 2nd turn, and you have broodstars & the like coming up in a few turns as well.

doesnt work perfect yet, still messing with it....

looking for seato'synot, thoughtcast, ornithopter, moxopal x 2, memnite, frogmite, cranial plating in ur opening hand for a 1/1, 2/2, 6/2flying & drawing 3 cards next turn for an extra blue maybe grabbing hunger of the nim for 2 huge hits from artifact creatures 2nd turn

I like what you got going here. Affinity is deadly! That being said... You have a lot of mana creating ability (24 cards) In a deck that shouldn't ever require you to pay more than 2 or 4 mana for something. And the splashing of red for only 4 cards is kind silly. You're using blue! If you need some removal you have counter spells, boomerangs, unsummons... Why splash red?

You could toss in some Glimmerposts and Couldposts for additional mana if you wanted. Indomitable Archangel would be a fantastic addition to this deck.

I'd say drop the Blasts, the Mountains and the Furnaces and 2 Islands. Add whatever the plains artifact land is and 4 plains (or if you have some dual lands that are blue and white, add those and 2 more Citadels). And work in at least 2 (3 or 4 if you feel like you consistently have the mana for it) of the Arcangels...

Hope I helped! Thanks! If you can check back on my Artifact deck again and offer up some advice to the question, I'd really appreciate it!

thanks for the help. splash of red was primarily just to have more artifact land & some quick damage 5th or 6th turn to finish off what ornithopter started. i like the white in there though, i'll have to mess with that. i refuse to use counterspells, i know they are invaluable to a blue deck & assert authority would be amazing in this deck...i just think they are BS regardless, so i don't use them. i'll check back on your artifact deck also!

strangely i splashed black instead of red for one card lol. works more to help with a big hit if i dont grab a cranial plating
