Single Scoop: Mystical Pizza Oven (Standard, Magic Arena)

The magical Pizza Oven (Mystic Forge) shall provide this week!...


Well, our deck will revolve around flooding artifacts onto the board and triggering Sai, Master Thopterist and Saheeli, Sublime Artificer.

Every artifact we put on the board will generate a 1/1 Flying Thopter which will hopefully let us block for as long as we can. Just how do we plan on flooding the board?...

Mystic Forge aka Pizza Oven shall help us! This card also helps us cast colorless nonland cards so this includes our Karn, the Great Creator and Ugin, the Ineffable. The nice thing about this is if we don't like what we see on top of our deck, we can shuffle it away for one life!

Another way to close out the game is to flood the board and continuously zap our opponent with Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge. The +2 will help us deal damage and gain life to stay alive in a game. The passive makes the rest of our creatures and planeswalkers cheaper! The -3 will be to return things like Fountain of Renewal and other artifacts that have gone to the graveyard to reoccur. In my opinion, I don't see me using the -8 all that much as our artifacts aren't actually that threatening.

In a best of one format, it's always nice to have a toolbox for random situations and Karn, the Great Creator helps with that. The +1 can turn our artifacts into blockers and potential threats as a combo that is fun and quite cute is Helm of the Host + God-Pharaohs' Statue. The artifacts in the sideboard really consist of 6 staple artifacts and the rest are filler and whatever you want to try. Just remember that Karn can grab an artifact in exile!


The deck was a blast and the games where we got the Pizza Oven going, it was sweet. I think I'm looking to add a third copy of Mystic Forge. I also want to shave a few planeswalkers for more artifacts. I'd probably shave Tezzeret, Artifice Master or a Saheeli, Sublime Artificer as Sai can draw us cards which I like. We still have some very apparent issues with interacting with our opponents so maybe we can add something like The Elderspell or Vraska's Contempt to deal with big creatures or to deal with multiple planeswalkers. A deck that goes underneath us with some early aggression will be hard to overcome unless we have our sweepers so maybe we go up to 5 board wipes. Either way, the deck was a blast and it feels so good to see Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge do his thing with that +2 animation!

Thanks for watching and see you at the next one!
