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.

@CuriousThing: Because the dragon requires it.

Really don't want to talk harshly, but:

I'm so disappointed. He is way too narrow planeswalker for UB. All of his abilities need artifact targets only and creating such a restricted planeswalkers, like Nissa Revane, didn't work better before. Nobody played her on constructed. So what's next, designing a new planeswalker which is working with only enchantments? Even Tezzeret 1.0 has some tutoring abilities that can be used in different decks which have lesser artifacts. But this guy isn't affecting battlefield alone. Although working great in full of artifacts deck, but in other decks, useless.

Flavour... I'm not getting any of it. Why isn't he colourless then, if all he is meant for artifacts? I've waited for UB planeswalker for years to put it in any UB deck and this is what we have got, something restricted without artifacts. Perhaps i have high hopes that he'll be something like Ajani Vengeant that is flavour-wise and useful in any WR decks. Tezzeret 2.0 will be disa... (see all)

Gives you card advantage and ends games on his second turn. Can something be more broken than this?

The thing that I like the best about this card is the slight element of surprise with his last ability. I think that every game that I've used Tezzeret's -4, it's always been for a ton of life, and I've won the game by it.

I'll have like 5 artifacts out that my opponent has been busy dealing with (some of them 5/5 creatures, thanks to good ol' tezzeret), have 2 or 3 cheap but good artifacts in my hand (like spellskite, ratchet bomb, or contagion clasp) play the artifacts, use the -4, and call it a day :)

One time, I got to use his -4 to do 20 damage. It was awesome!

this is an incredibly lazily designed planeswalker. the first ability is boring, and probably them just trying to conserve design space. the second ability is just what they use to make this guy a mythic. all they did was let you use tezzeret the seeker's ultimate earlier. not particularly creative. but the last ability...oh doesn't even do anything! sure, it'll win you some games, but it's not fun to use!

Liquimetal Coating + -1 ability + Swiftfoot Boots + Darksteel Plate = Tezzeret becomes a terminator.
Posted By: MasterOfBearLore (10/19/2011 11:43:09 PM)


Wait, so Tezzeret (a planeswalker) is an agent of Nicol Bolas (also a planeswalker) and is also loyal to you (another planeswalker). How does that make sense flavor-wise?

A great card to build a deck around. Especially, an infect deck.
Vector Asp+Necropede+Plague Myr+tezz, beetch of bolas = overpoisoned dude

Hexproof does not help planeswalkers that become creatures from burn spells. I know you didn't say it did but just to tell you a player can cast lightning bolt targeting his opponent the redirect the damage to the planeswalker without actually targeting the planeswalker.

Nicol Bolas demands his slaves have bitchin' awesome dreads.
