    I made a pretty nice cycling deck. I was able to beat Nicol Bolas and accomplish all his challenges in the Return of the God-Pharoah event without even reaching lvl 40. 

    Decklist: 

    Drake Haven
    Faith of the Devoted
    Horror of the Broken Lands
    Ruthless Sniper
    Desert of the Glorified
    New Perspectives
    Razaketh's Rite
    Censor
    Countervailing Winds
    Vizier of Tumbling Sands

    I'm hoping to replace HotBL or Sniper with Archfiend of Ifnir asap and find better options with cycling for CW, VoTS and maybe Censor. 

    Once all the supports/creatures are set up (usually turn 3/4) cycling a card makes you: 

    Draw a card (if it has cycling it gains 3 Mana)
    Summon 2 2/2 drakes
    gives your opponent's first creature -1/-1
    Gives HotBL +2/+1
    Deals 5 damage to opponent
    Heals you for 5

    Considering that you'll be cycling 3-4 cards per turn, this deck is pretty **** lethal. 


    I'm surprised that the only Tezzeret decks I see in quick matches are Energize/Fabricate decks...cycling doesn't really benefit from his abilities but in all honesty you don't really need them.

    I'm sure you see plenty of cycling decks (I know I do) but the AI can't cycle, so they are played like a normal creature deck.
  • ZarcosZarcos Age Unconfirmed Posts: 15 Just Dropped In
    Nope...I know the AI can't cycle but if they were cycling decks then I would be seeing cards with cycling being played instead of cards with energize/fabricate.

    I have been leveling old Tezzeret the Schemer up lately and at level 49 as of posting this. I wanted to steer clear of cycling and also not be too heavy on the Fabricate mechanic. (Fabricate has been beneficial but not necessary. )

    I decided to go with control and combined discard and bounce.

    Current list:

    Creatures: (1)
    Dreamstealer

    Spells: (4)
    Baral's Expertise 
    Consign // Oblivion 
    Galestrike 
    Unburden*

    Supports: (5)
    Trial of Ambition 
    Cartouche of Ambition 
    Cartouche of Knowledge 
    Fetid Pools**
    Riddleform

    *I would prefer Infinite Obliteration but I still don't have it.

    **Not sure if Pyramid of the Pantheon would be better here or not but I really think As Foretold would be optimal but again I don't have AF.

    Generally I will play spells and supports while building up to his second ability then get the token and let it rule the game. Once it is out I let it and/or Dreamstealer keep the pressure on. The tokens from Riddleform help with surprise damage and the Cartouches help increase the pressure and keep my life up. In the current TG I've gone 8-0 so far and the last two days I've only dropped 2 or 3 matches but have played probably 30+. 


    One of my favorite decks to play now.

    I've considered bounce/discard as a strategy for him but I don't have the cards for it yet

    Blight caster support build works pretty well. It benefits heavily from fabricate without being entirely dependent on it

  • GilescloneGilesclone Posts: 735 Critical Contributor
    Blightcaster loves Tamiyo's Journal and any creature that drops supports.  Ability 2 gives you 2 per turn.  Ability 1 gives you 2 more in a pinch. Cruel Reality has crazy synergy with Blightcaster (mythic I know).

    Ok, so I built this deck for Standard:

    Creatures:
    Elenda, the Dusk Rose
    Twilight Prophet

    Spells:
    River's Rebuke
    Walk the Plank

    Supports:
    Blightcaster
    Lich's Mastery
    Kumena's Awakening
    Prying Blade
    Storm the Vault
    The Eldest Reborn

    It's worked pretty well. The Living Construct from his second ability provides a steady stream of supports, the deck activates City's Blessing quickly for Twilight Prophet, and the extra draw between Prophet, Elenda and Kumena's Awakening balances Lich's Mastery's discard and lets you cycle through your deck faster.   Loyalty builds up fast one StV is out, and if you ult, the board becomes a minefield for your opponent.

    Realistically, the creatures can be replaced with anything that provides reliable card draw and/or life gain.  Walk the Plank is also replaceable, I just like having some form of targeted removal.

    The deck has issues with Vraska, since Lich's Mastery starts with 5 Shields, but most other support removal (besides RR) is a crapshoot.

    I think his second ability might be out of date. For me it reads, "Summon a 1/1 Living Construct creature with "At the beginning of your turn, Fabricate 1. Overload 1: This creature gets +1/+1."

    It depends on what level he’s at.
