MTG Brewer: Fun Budget Aether Revolt Standard Deck – R/W Artificers

Looking for a fun budget deck for Aether Revolt Standard? Aggro decks have been in the backburner in this format and the ones that do have some success like G/B Aggro, G/W Tokens and Mardu Vehicles all cost a pretty penny. With that in mind, here is R/W Artificers.

4 Inventor’s Apprentice
4 Toolcraft Exemplar
4 Stoneforge Acolyte
4 Weapons Trainer
4 Stone Haven Outfitter
2 Aether Chaser
2 Reckless Bushwacker
2 Pia Nalaar

4 Inventor’s Goggles
2 Captain’s Claws
2 Stoneforge Masterwork

4 Shock
2 Declaration in Stone

4 Inspiring Vantage
2 Needle Spires
8 Plains
6 Mountains

artificers deck

This deck plays powerful one drops like Inventor’s Apprentice and Toolcraft Exemplar and equipment to enable it instead of vehicles like Heart of Kiran. It also plays 8 powerful 2 drops lords in Weapons Trainer and Stone Haven Outfitter. Inventor’s Goggles and Stoneforge Masterwork tie in the Artificers synergies. Inspiring Vantage is the most expensive card in the deck but it is a necessity to make the mana work. Every other card are commons, uncommons or bulk rares so the deck should cost no more than $30 to make.

All in all, this could be a good deck for someone looking to try something a little different. One thing is for sure none of these cards are in danger of being banned in the next wave of bannings!

    Should try to work Metallic Mimic into this, as it is like a third lord, whose effects don’t go away if they die.

    • That is something to test. Maybe -2 Aether Chaser & -2 Reckless Bushwacker for 4 Metallic Mimic. Just concern there won’t be enough artificers.

        The Mimic will be an Artificer, though I wouldn’t drop Aether Chaser, I’d run 4, first strike + being huge with equipment… might be good.

        I’m planning on running a similar list at FNM this week, I’ll post the list and the results later on.

  2. Didn’t read the second line of text on the Mimic. Have to test what to cut then. And sure let me know how it runs. In some testing the deck can be very fast but the meta pretty harsh on traditional aggro decks.
