How it Works

I really like this deck. I've always been a fan of Black and White Orzhov style decks.
What inspired this deck was Tidehollow Sculler Buy. I love the card for what it is but I wanted to take advantage of the fact its an artifact and wanted to see if I could build an artifact themed deck around it. So here's the breakdown.

Start the early game by playing your tap lands like Scoured Barrens Buy and Temple of Silence Buy. Try and get out your Gold Myr Buy and Leaden Myr Buy early too. They will help with mana and you can buff them later on too with Tempered Steel Buy and Steel Overseer Buy

Getting a mana myr out second turn and playing a Solemn Simulacrum Buy on the third turn will put you in a good mana position for the mid game. Use your control cards like Tidehollow Sculler Buy, Oblivion Ring Buy, and Noxious Gearhulk Buy to control the board.

In the later game use Tezzeret's Gambit Buy to proliferate your +1/+1 counters on your artifact creatures and draw extra cards. Use your versatile equipment Sword of Fire and Ice Buy, Sword of Light and Shadow Buy and Batterskull Buy to gain life, retrieve dead artifact creatures, draw extra cards and deal extra damage.

Vault Skirge Buy and Etched Champion Buy are great evasive cards to equip and buff with Steel Overseer Buy. Etched Champion Buy makes for a good defender too if you're playing on the defensive a little.

That's pretty much it, a fun artifact based orzhov deck. Let me know what you think =)
