Description

Why annihilate your enemies by hand when you can craft a magical automaton to do your dirty work for you? That's the evil scheme cooked up by the Phyrexian artificers in the "Artful Destruction" deck, and when you're playing the deck, you'll find that this is a pretty good idea!

The crux of the deck are the Splicers. Each of these 1/1 creatures creates a 3/3 Golem creature token when it enters the battlefield, and each of them grants a bonus to all Golems you control. The more Golems you make, and the more Splicers you have, the more powerful your metallic army is. Best of all, these bonuses aren't limited just to your Golem tokens. Your other Golems, such as Stone Golem and Phyrexian Hulk, get the Splicers' bonuses too!

Since both the Splicers and the other Golems are somewhat expensive, you'll spend the early part of each game developing your mana base. Copper Myr, Gold Myr, and Cultivate will all help you ramp up the amount of mana you can produce. You'll take some damage early on from aggressive opponents, but you'll more than make up for it once you start constructing your Golem army.

When you're ready to personalize the deck with other New Phyrexia cards, you might want to try adding blue to bring in Wing Splicer, which gives all your Golems flying, or Xenograft, which turns your Splicers themselves into Golems. A white card to consider is Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. It gives all your other creatures +2/+2, so it pumps up your Splicers and their Golems—double bonus! As if that weren't enough, it gives all your opponent's creatures -2/-2 as well!
