Youve got to be insane to not see the brilliance in this card.

For metalcraft, this is extremely good. Plop a few memnites and what not and your set with a 5/7 for 5. Not only that, but it STILL has defender when its attcking, so if youre flying with defender decks, this is a must have.

Even by itself its a 3/5 defender. For blue, thats pretty good.

I like how the flavor text deals with metalcraft by listing three artifacts.

5/7 is pretty good for turn 5, especially without targetting restrictions.

Erik's Random card 6/19/2011

When design handed the card file over, this was a 3U Aura with:
Enchant artifact
As long as enchanted artifact isn't a creature, it's a 5/5 creature that's still an artifact.

I, and some of my development team, found that confusing. As long as it isn't a creature, it is a creature. What? I liked the feel of the ability, but wasn't thrilled by the card. The original Tezzeret could make all your artifacts into 5/5 creatures. It made sense to me that the new Tezzeret still used that ability, but only on one artifact.

Now we had a hole in our file. Blue gets the same number of commons, and something has to replace the missing aura. We tried a card that looked at the top five cards of your library for an artifact. The problem was that Ancient Stirrings was still in our FFL-Standard. This was too similar (and worse).

Blue was too weak. I thought a big flier would be fun. However, this gave the set too many big fliers, so I gave up on that. Then I ... (see all)

Not to state the overly obvious, but I LOVE this guy with Vent Sentinel (and the other RotE defenders). Sentinel doesn't care that the Serpent is only masquerading as a defender once you roll out enough artifacts. And with even red now getting some artifact love, I can see those two making sweet dual-win-condition music together.

I love the flavor of this card!
Not only does it have metalcraft...
but it's flavor text fits with it having a metalcraft ability by saying which three artifacts make it lose defender.

this guy is a beast in draft, i want to make it fly just so i can attack with a flying serpent who was a defender.

Honestly, I hate Metalcraft...

Decent serpent for the block, I guess...
