Standard Dimir Tezzeret with Ali Aintrazi

Reddit

Welcome back to best of three Standard! Today we’re playing a spicy brew that utilizes Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge. I got this brew originally from Justin Parnell and switched a few cards around but the core is still mostly the same. Standard doesn’t have a ton of good artifacts, but it has some. We rely more so on Saheeli, Sublime Artificer and to a lesser extent Sai, Master Thopterist to produce artifacts for us to use Tezz’s plus ability to zap our opponent’s to death. Let’s look at the deck!

Time Stamps:

Match 1 - 00:02:15

Match 2 - 00:20:18

Match 3 - 00:37:15


The idea behind the deck is to get to the point where you can play Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge which’ll give your creatures and planeswalkers affinity for artifacts. You can then usually dump your hand. If you have a Karn, the Great Creator out you can grab Guardians of Koilos and usually cast it for free. You can juggle the Guardians for free and if you have Sai out, you’ll make as many thopters as your heart desires and then kill them with Tezz’s plus ability.

You can also just grab Bolas’s Citadel with Karn against slower decks and if that resolves, you’ll usually win the game. Saheeli is also sweet with Powerstone Shard, allowing you to quickly accelerate your mana and Narset, Parter of Veils is solid for obvious reasons. Fblthp, the Lost is here to just thin the deck and Skyscanner is essentially the same thing and it’s free with Tezz usually or just costs one mana with Ugin, the Ineffable.

Deck has a lot of synergy and I do believe it has potential. It’s Tier 2 at best right now but I’d keep an eye on Tezzeret and new artifacts from the next couple of sets. That’s it for today, have a great weekend everyone!

As always, thanks for reading,
