Thread: Dwarf Stompy!

    Dwarf Stompy!

    Dwarven Recruiter plus Depala, Pilot Exemplar is an interesting draw engine, and they've printed some interesting dwarves/vehicles now like toolcraft exemplar and smuggler's copter. None of the dwarves stop combo at all, so I threw in chalice and thalia plus blood moon in the board in my sample list below (you can play the one drop dwarves through chalice with cavern). Thalia plus dwarven miner is interesting. Anyone trying out dwarves or have suggestions?

    The other avenue I think is trying to get dwarven recruiter plus arcane adaptation to work somehow.


    4 dwarven recruiter
    4 depala, pilot exemplar
    4 toolcraft exemplar
    2 Veteran Motorist
    2 Dwarven Miner
    1 Solemn Recruit
    1 Bloodfire Dwarf
    1 Fairgrounds Warden
    1 Mirror Entity
    1 Crib Swap
    1 Renegade wheelsmith

    1 goblin charbelcher
    4 Blood Moon
    1 Sword of Fire and Ice
    2 Umezawa’s Jiitte
    4 smuggler’s copter
    4 chalice of the void

    4 chrome mox
    4 cavern of souls
    2 Plateau
    4 Plains
    1 Mountain
    1 Karakas
    4 Arid Mesa
    4 Ancient Tomb

    SB:
    4 Rest in Peace
    3 thalia, guardian of thraben
    2 Magus of the Moon
    4 Sulfur elemental
    2 duergar something something destroys things

    Re: Dwarf Stompy!

    I love this! I think however I would make it a little more focused on some interactions and on the stompy part. My suggestions below.

    -1 Bloodfire Dwarf (1 of this effect tutorable mainboard seems plenty)
    -1 Solem Recruit (the vehicles should be our beef, but keeping 1 to tutor for seems fine)
    -1 Skysovereign, Consul Flagship (5 mana is a lot and there's no way to tutor)
    -1 Veteran Motorist (doesn't seem that great)
    +1 Dwarven Grunt (with buffs and moon effects this might be worth it once in awhile)
    +3 Magus of the Moon (may as well try and screw em with this and chalice game 1)

    Consider Dwarven Blastminer also? It's only a 1/1 to Miner's 1/2, but the effect is the same and you can morph it to surprise blow up land the first time. Fitting in some Wastelands also seems good but not sure if that's the worst idea ever.

    Duergar Hedge-mage and dwarven bloodboiler may be worth considering.
    Also, aether vial.
    I don't think skysovereign is worth it.
    Veteran Motorist seems ok to me, scry2 seems pretty helpful with Depala.
    I like the dwarven grunt + moon idea, and dwarven bloodboiler could really increase the hurt.

    Duergar Hedge-Mage seems solid. Vial I'm unsure about, I think you either make this a vial deck and add 4x Wastelands and go to 4x Thalia to survive at all against most decks and cut the Chalice/Moon plan, or go more all in on the Chalice/Moon plan. I think we want to stompy more and lean on the 2 and 3 CMC cards as I think we get better value of our cards that way?

    ...excellent suggestion.

    Yeah I agree that blood moon is probably better than thalia, good suggestions everyone. Thinking...moving thalia to the board and shaving some of the mentioned dwarves for blood moon or magus of the moon.

    Depala's ability costs mana and draws cards, which sounds like a winning combination for Aether Vial. Now if only there were better dwarves to draw.

    ... At least you get to resolve dwarven recruiter for 15 minutes most games. I'm excited, thinking of running this in our monthly proxy event end of the month.
