    [MKM] Murders at Karlov Mannor: Anyone have a Clue?

    Been 15 seconds since the last set came out so here's a new one!



    Probably worse than Sprite Dragon, but interesting at least, I guess, with Baubles.

    Also, Clue themed cards?

    It's part of a UB with literally the game of Clue, so yes. Clue themed (in more ways than one)

    I expect writing of a similar exalted quality.

    If they print a good version of Tim Curry I might actually be tempted to get back into EDH

    Doesn't that Drake actually work best with Arcbound Ravager in an affinity shell, where you're basically doubling the number of +1/+1 counters and getting a flyer for Plating? Plus it counts as 2 mana for Affinity thanks to the Clue.

    EDIT: i mean, turn 1 you drop land/springleaf/ornithopter/metal mox, play this and a frogmite or enforcer, turn 2 drop a ravager do some dumb affinity shit and swing for lethal, right?

    Yeah, most probably. I just wanted to get the ball rolling on a thread, so I didn't really give it much thought.

    Issues of course are that there this Drake doesn't have haste or a protection ability. Might be funny to mess around with Ravager and it though. But it's been a long time since I've seen Ravager in Legacy.

    Not really? Springleaf Drum, metalcraft mox, bunch of stuff i'm forgetting since i've never really been an affitity player, but i don't remember that deck ever really having trouble with colored mana, i'm sure its built way differently now in legacy, but if you reverted to an older style build for the mana i don't see it as that much of a problem tbh.

    EDIT: Mox Opal, Seat of the Synod, Great Furnace, Springleaf Drum, Lotus Petal, that's 16 sources of each color right there.

    Maybe build like:

    4x Arcbound Ravager
    4x Ornithopter
    4x Gleaming Drake
    4x Frogmite
    4x Thought Monitor
    1x Retrofitter Foundry

    4x Thoughtcast
    4x Galvanic Blast
    3x Shrapnel Blast

    4x Springleaf Drum
    4x Mox Opal
    4x Great Furnace
    4x Seat of the Synod
    4x Urza's Saga

    And then you've still got 8 slots left for whatever else you want, like Platings or Tombs or Needles or Petals or something. This also mgiht be a deck where you'd want disciple of the vault

    It doesn't really do anything without sac outlet or something the deck can't do already so I don't see why it's worth considering.
    The only way I think this could see play if it wasn't an artifact so it doesn't crap out to Meltdown or Boseiju.

    There's always Atog to fill in as the extra non artifact sac outlet

    .
    Instead of old Affinity tech, I would look to new artifacts tech.

    8 Baubles are 0 cmc artifacts that "sacrifice" and cycle for free
    Sai Master Thopterist makes extra artifacts to sacrifice


    4 Lotus Petal
    4 Mox Opal
    4 Mishra's Bauble
    4 Urza's Bauble

    4 Thoughtcast
    4 Thought Monitor

    2 Sai, Master Thopterist
    3 Emry, Lurker of the Loch
    3 Kappa Cannoneer
    4 Gleaming Geardrake
    4 Urza's Saga


    There's probably a deck there somewhere.

    Looks great, but probably better without the geardrakes...

    The positives of Geardrake are:
    +2 artifacts on 1 card (good for any ability that counts artifacts e.g. Affinity, Constructs, Improvise)

    +1/+1 every time you cycle a Bauble (free), use Lotus Petal/extra Mox for mana (free), or recur them with Emry

    Good synergy with Sai, which makes another free artifact per Bauble and has a clue-like draw

    Replaces itself, albeit slowly

    Pitches to FoW

    Is that enough to make it into 8-cast? Don't know. But it has potential as another growing evasive threat like Kappa.

    The clear comparison is Patchwork Automaton, which does see play. Drake flies, pitches to fow, and comes with extra permanents/ca vs the tempo of ward and ancient tomb synergy.

    I think itís close enough to be comparable.

    I'd figure Scroll of Fate or some wild Chrome Host Seedshark build is more likely over Illusionary Mask itself, but anything to get me to resleeve the Dreadnoughts
