I swear I thought he was some new planeswalker until i saw the name. But what really matters is that he is lethal with ALL his abilities. And the storyline just got more powerful as he is now an agent of Nicol Bolas, and Nicol Bolas HATEs the Phyrexian, so we will be seeing the Planeswalkers, Mirrans and Bolas Minions joining up to kick Phyrexian ass.

I was sooo jealous, the other day my brother got a fat pack and pulled 3 mythics including Tezzy. Don't get me wrong I was happy for him but I was also a little bummed haha. The next day I decided to get a fat pack because of his good luck and pulled one!! YES!! Now I just need 3 more. . . .

On release day I pulled 3 of these from the same FatPack :D
Two weeks later got 2 more from a box. Not complaining at all.

I'm happy I bought 2 of these for $40 from a kid the other day...

Works great with those Artifact lands in vintage and legacy. Like Seat of Synod and Vault of Whispers

I never thought of the Infect thing...

What I've been using him for is simply turning Darksteel Axe into a 5/5, Chrome Steed into a 7/7, and if I draw him early enough I turn an Etched Champion into a 5/5 before I have Metalcraft. But now you guys have made me think about Infect, damn it, back to the drawing board for another few hours.

And wow, so many people are getting him in Fat Packs. He was in my Fat Pack too. And when my friends and I split a booster box, one of us got Tezz as well. Mythic Rares are all of a sudden not too rare, it seems (I also got Glissa and Praetor's Counsel in my Fatty).

cracked a foil yesterday!!!! gonna trade it for either two non-foil Tezz 2.0 or one non-foil and the majority of a five colour EDH mana base

The overwhelming consensus is that the -1 ability will not overwrite other things about the artifact, and I accept that. I just wish it was a little less ambiguous what with cards that have very similarly worded abilities (Incite) that overwrite characteristics.

I'm confused, if I use Tezz's 2nd ability on a Inkmoth Nexus who is turned into a 1/1 Artifact Infect does the Inkmoth Nexus's ability still end and the end of turn step?

Hits the magical 4-cc range? CHECK
Can go Ulti in one turn or less? CHECK
Virtually broken in the right deck? CHECK
Belongs to a color/s that can support his cause? CHECK

This guy can easily be the cornerstone of a well thought-out artifact-heavy deck. IMHO, this guy is waaaay more flexible than Tezz 1.0 with the exception of color, and unlike the first version, can protect himself as he comes down. Aggro or control build doesn't matter. This guy can make those steel weenies huge, and those "useless" counter-dependent artifacts 5/5 beatsticks.

ps: you don't need to have 10 artifacts in play to win with his ultimate. the other guy should have lost some life at this point in the game.

+1, Pass.
-4, Good game.

I know the official ruling is that when the artifact "becomes" a 5/5 artifact creature it maintains abilities such as Indestructible and Infect, but I disagree with this because on the card it simply says "target artifact becomes a 5/5 artifact creature" and nothing else. I think this should be a replacement in every sense and the artifact should be nothing more than what it says; a 5/5 artifact creature. I guess it keeps its abilities and types and subtypes and so on because it doesn't say that it loses them. I wish they'd be more specific about this in the future and I'm glad this card isn't in standard anymore.

SunshineTheBlond, C5r1a5z0y, MithosFall: So what ISN'T Tezzeret after all that? Basic, Tribal, Aura, World, Equipment, Fortification? And of course, Instant and Sorcery.

And Phenomenon/Plane/Scheme/Vanguard, which kinda don't count. Huh.

So what does the Sol Ring turn into when it becomes 5/5?

Another Planeswalker who serves the Multiverse's future ruler, Lord Bolas.

BlueBlack has always been the most interesting color combination to me, so I'm a little disappointed that the only representative planeswalker deals exclusively with artifacts. Here's what I'm waiting for:

Deathwetter, The Best Planeswalker
4 Loyalty
+1: Target creature is unblockable this turn.
-2: Target creature becomes a copy of another target creature until end of turn.
-6: Target opponent reveals his or her hand. Until end of turn. you may cast each nonland card in that player's hand without paying its casting cost.

This is completely insane with Mishra, Artificer Prodigy.

OK- so here's my review for Tezzeret, outside the context of combo and block-specific synergy:

Anyone who rates Planeswalkers by reading their casting cost and their ultimate and then stopping is being a little short-sighted. I can already tell you that Sorin's best ability is his middle one. Most planeswalker's best stuff is in the middle, in fact. Ultimates are great for finishing the game, but it's not until you see someone minus 3 one Planeswalker, plus 2 another one, and plus 2 a third that you realize how great these 'free' utility spells are.

Tezzeret's +1 ability IS useful outside the context of an artifact deck. You can still decide that you just want dig really deep for that one single artifact in your deck to kill someone with, like Wurmcoil Engine.

Tezzeret's -2 ability is gold because of it's dumbly good positive interaction with Inkmoth Nexus. Throw those two in a deck with no other artifacts, and you have an Infect Win Con as an alt game plan.

Tezz's Ultimate looks a... (see all)

I don't believe I've seen Blinkmoth Urn mentioned.

Also things like Pentavis, Thopter Assembally, Triskellion, and such with lots of Proliferate such as Tezzeret's Gambit and Steady Progress. For extra mileage (and because they splashed white w/ Tezzy on duels of the planeswalkers 2012) you could throw in Shrine of Loyal Legions. Just a thought.
