Equipment, equipment, equipment! Whether your deck has five Masterpiece Swords of X and Y with GrandPrix Stoneforge Mystic, or a budget equipment package.
This list will detail out two synergy sections - best options, and budget (under $1 for TCGPlayer mid at time of posting.
The Golden Standard of equipment synergy. A card that broke standard. Banned in Modern as the format started.
If you have nothing else in you deck but Stoneforge, and 4-5 equipment (of variable uses, Swiss Army style), you’re already doing fine. Mini-equipment package is fine, and becomes nightmarishly more effective the more synergy you have.
Ah, the fleeting moments of hope against the oncoming of New Phyrexia. Between the Allies of BFZ, and the Mirrodin Pure resistance.
If you’re running 6-8 equipment (an equipment heavy deck), plus a “normal” mana rock group (3-5 in my experience, more in decks that need ramp or Brago’s Mass Blink abuse), plus any artifact creatures, it’s almost guaranteed to get you metalcraft. It saves you a small fortune on equip costs, especially more prohibitive costs (anything >3).
Is it possible to get an alternate reality draft set like Mirrodin Pure as a supplementary product much like Modern Masters?
I’m curious, so I’ll ask all of you. I often get requests for Mirrodin Pure. Is it just curiosity in what could have been? My designer instinct says it’s a trap in that it would be hard to design a set that would give players what they expect.
