Izzet Thopters

Happy Tuesday MTG peeps,

It is that time again here at MTG Realm when we start brewing up all sorts of crazy and far-fetched deck lists with the release of a new Magic: the Gathering set.  Over the next few posts we wanted to try out the following standard constructed lists at our kitchen table with the playgroup before 'graduating' the list to Friday Night Magic -

• Izzet (blue / red) Thopters featuring Pia and Kiran Nalaar

• Orzhov (white / black) Enchant featuring Helm of the Gods, and

•   Golgari (black / green) Elves featuring Dwyne and company

Anwywhoos - straight on in to our very first (and certainly not last) iteration of Izzet Thopters.  There was a rather succinct  artifact sub-theme with Magic Origins and the list essentially builds itself.  The real trick here is to start cutting the poorly performing chaff over the next few weeks.  With our first build, we attempted to kick in everything and the kitchen sink to see what worked well -

4x Ornithopter
3x Bonded Construct
2x Ghostfire Blade
2x Springleaf Drum
3x Ensoul Artifact
1x Chief Engineer
1x Jace, Vryn's Prodigy
3x Shrapnel Blast
3x Thopter Engineer
2x Chief of the Foundry
2x Artificer's Epiphany
3x Pia and Kiran Nalaar
2x Thopter Spy Netwok
2x Hangarback Walker

4x Shivan Reef
3x Temple of Epiphany
4x Darksteel Citadel
2x Foundry of the Consuls
2x Tomb of the Spirit Dragon
2x Mana Confluence
3x Mountain
3x Island

We think this may be a good starting point at which to start getting the feel of this thing and in a few weeks hope to start focusing on where we want to steer this next.
