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.

@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.
