So I'm well aware that before I post a deck here, I'm supposed to have tested it thoroughly, write a small novel about it, and it's supposed to be a viable idea. Well, this isn't a deck, nor is it really a viable idea, so I'm sure some kind moderator will reclassify this under casual, however, I think this idea might make for a satisfying FNM and... who knows, maybe a shiny GP trophy on your wall.

So I came about this idea while I was trying to find a way to work at least 8 artifacts into a burn deck and take advantage of Shrapnel Blast in type 2. Of course, Darksteel Citadel is an auto for a deck with Shrapnel Blast, unfortunately, I couldn't find another single artifact that would serve the purpose. That's when I thought about something.

Hey...if you sacrifice Scuttling Doom Engine to Shrapnel Blast...that's like... *counts on fingers and a toe* 11 damage.

Without further ado, I give you, the worst idea for a deck I have ever had.


// Name: The Trouble of Scuttle Befuddles and Muddles, but Mostly Just Leads to Overjoyous Puddles.

// Lands
6 Mountain
6 Forest
4 Mana Confluence
4 Stomping Ground
4 Darksteel Citadel

// Creatures
4 Elvish Mystic
4 Scuttling Doom Engine
4 Stormbreath Dragon
4 Ghor-Clan Rampager
4 Polukranos, World Eater
4 Generator Servant
4 Sylvan Caryatid

// Spells
4 Shrapnel Blast

I haven't tested this, I will never test this, I down-right refuse to test this. However, in Magical Happy Christmasland, this deck turn 5 kills.

I'm going to go back to playing limited where I can't hurt anyone.

Shrapnel Blast with only 8 artifacts seems pretty loose.

Heard that one before but it's your win condition so it's mid-game / late-game anyway.

I like Scuttling Doom Engine with Trading Post.
