hes definitely good for an artifact deck which is good since mirrodan has a s*** load of artifacts. as for what side he's on, apparently he's working with the Phyrexians on Bolas's orders but is mainly just surprised the phyrexians didnt just zerg him and turn him into one of them

Very cool card, you gain life they lose life

I love this art. He's just standing there like, "Ya. I'm badass, so don't mess with me if you want that life total to stay where it is." I love him for that.

Infect Artifacts! ichorclaw myr, plague myr, vector asp... the list goes on. I changed my infect deck from mono-black to black-blue just to put him in there. I added the new proliferate counterspell and a few thrumming birds and shape anews. this guy makes my infect artifact creatures equivilant to a 10/5 normal creature. Awesome!

His last ability does not seem like it should be only -4, especially in a Thopter deck.

My first game in the Mirrodin Besieged Pre-Release my opponent played this and used the -1 ability to turn his darksteel axe into a 5/5 indestructable artifact creature :O

@Whitey_Windragon: Not just Darksteel Relic works as a big indestructible beat-'em-up creature with Tezzy: Darksteel Axe, Darksteel Myr, Darksteel Plate....this sounds like a wacky deck idea...

Also Vault Skirge can be a nifty beater and you can turn a Phyrexian Metamorph into a 5/5 once its done some other job.

Great card

He still can die from a state-based action.

-If two Planeswalkers are in the battlefield with the same subtype, he'll be put into the graveyard.

-If his loyalty counters are reduced to 0, the planeswalker will be put into the graveyard.



Also, you can use its -1 on a 1/1 Artifact Creature. It's only condition it's that it needs to be an artifact, which artifact creatures are. There doesn't need to be a rule that says you can use it on a 1/1 Artifact Creature for you to be able to use it, but rather a rule that says you don't: e.g; if it said on it's -1 "Target nonartifact becomes a 5/5 artifact creature," then you obviously couldn't use it on a 1/1, but since it only says artifact then you can.

here's something deadly for you. use liquidmetal coating and tez's -1 and oyu get the well loved artifact creature planeswalker, but put swiftfoot boots on him and you got a hexproof planeswalker >:D then add some phyrisis or grafted exoskeleton and you got either a 5/5 or a 7/7 artifact creature planeswalker that is hexproof and has infect. add some other equipment to your leisure and you have one mean dude that can mess you up in an black/blue deck that may or may not have infect

Did Wizards have to make this guy worthy of his $40 price tag? I was kind of exited for the new Tezzeret going into the Scars block come to find out he's unattainable. Yay.

Question: If you use His -1 effect to turn him into a creature aswell, can you attack with him and use a loyalty ability?
Posted By: qwertycrap (7/10/2011 10:44:30 PM)


Dx his first ability to me says "Look at the top 5 cards and put one in your hand" (Artifact only deck)
Second ability is somewhat of a waist, unless there is a rule that says I can use it on a 1/1 Artifact Creature
third one looks like an Artifact Vampire ability xD

honestly? I would either use this or Tezzeret the Seeker. If they weren't Phrexian flavored, I would definitely have less of a "they killed my favorite home world!" guilty consions Dx

I love this card but the fact that he costs more than bolas himself, and that my drawing ards from a pack luck is 0 I think the stores can keep him.
Posted By: marwinshieldscale (6/24/2011 11:38:37 PM)


First Ruling under the MBS FAQ states as followed:
* The artifact targeted by the second ability will retain any types, subtypes, or supertypes it has. Notably, if an Equipment becomes an artifact creature, it can't be attached to another creature. If it was attached to a creature, it becomes unattached.
So there for Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas would become an Artifact Creature Planeswalker if you use Liquimetal Coating on him and his second ability on him self.
