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

@ succumbing1
A: how'd u get the top comment at all (ATM)
B: I've played both tezz extensively, tezz 2.0 is , contrary to my first thoughts, VASTLY better than 1.0.
It was even worth splashing black in my mono blue deck. Sure his tutor is much weaker, but its a +1 that u use repeatedly. Much better loyalty gain, also between this fabricate, master T, & grand architect any disadvantage is easily handled. His former ultimate is much better suited now, I'll take a permanently 5/5 ornithopter for -1 over a swarm for 1 turn at -5, especially now that his ultimate has been improved so dramatically. It'll either win u the game outright or will give u the life u need 2 win. With the old ultimate, if they managed to survive ( fog or otherwise ) gratz! Ur entirely tapped out of ur artifacts! GG game 2?
( this is EXT )

EDIT: I don't want this 2 B some back and forth or something but...
If ur only using him 4 his search, tinker / fabricate will do. New ultimate is better. Period. And master T + ... (see all)

Actually, I feel that I can fully disagree with you.
His "Search for an artifact" effect on the original was a negative one. This allowed to search all of your library, but would most likely kill Tezz to do what you needed. This Tezz limits it to the top five cards, but it's a +1 ability, AND with blue's ability to pretty much fix draws, this is very efficient.
His "All artifacts become 5/5 till end of turn." was his original ultimate. This was a finisher, and if someone could prevent combat damage, or whatever, you've wasted him. This Tezz has it only as a -1 ability, and it's PERMANENT, and it's one of his most sought-after, as it makes cheap artifacts or artifact creatures with decent abilities a great threat. Very beneficial to protect him, or just beat away at your opponent.
Comparing the "Untap two artifacts" and this Tezz's ultimate is silly. Two entirely different things. However, where the untap is amazingly beneficial, new Tezz's ultimate is quite the effect, ... (see all)

Advice needed in re possible trade that incl Tezz 2.0 & Vengevine for a foil Sword of Feast & Famine & Koth. Question is who is getting the better deal? Thanks in advance!

He's more machine now than man; twisted and evil.

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.

While trying to find a use for Sarkan the Mad, I made a terrible discovery:

He has turned to the dark side of the force

Narrow? Tezzeret's home is Esper... Where nearly everything is infused with Etherium, even Tezz himself. Tezzeret lives for metal, it's what he does.
Posted By: koRnygoatweed (3/2/2011 10:10:35 AM)


the art is so much better than tezzeret the seeker

Obviously he is incredible in a U/B artifact deck.
But any planeswalker that has "I command you to build a specific kind of deck in both dual colour and theme" written all over it is bad in my book. I never liked artifact creatures much, so I'm very subjective.
To make that standard deck for this guy, you need 4 of this and 3 jace 2.0... and that is gonna cost ya, big time. But if you already have a U/B artifact deck or is gonna build one, I understand why you like this one, but none for me thanks.
