Shatter It All

A friend of mine was talking to me about silly deck ideas in Magic, and I noted one posted long ago about using a Blacker Lotus to tear all of your opponent's cards to pieces.  But that deck is illegal to play, even in a casual setting you're bound to get banned from playing it.  Well, as I thought about it, this idea came up instead:


Creatures (15)
------------------------------------------------------
3x Broodstar
4x Etherium Sculptor
4x Palladium Myr
4x Vedalken Engineer

Artifacts (11)
------------------------------------------------------
3x Darksteel Forge
4x Mana Vault
4x Mycosynth Lattice

Instants / Sorceries (14)
------------------------------------------------------
4x Fabricate
2x Override
4x Shatterstorm
4x Thoughtcast

Lands (20)
------------------------------------------------------
4x Great Furnace
4x Island
4x Izzet Guildgate
4x Seat of the Synod
4x Steam Vents



Is it viable?

I like the idea (Mycosynth Lattice/Darksteel Forge/Shatterstorm) Might be a little hard in the early game to get going but I think the fetch spells will help a lot. Maybe a couple Darksteel Myr to help block in the early game?

EDH decks I play:

 

Prossh: http://community.wizards.com/forum/commander-edh/threads/4101381

 

Derevi: http://community.wizards.com/forum/commander-edh/threads/4115936

 

Kaalia (the beats)

 

Zur (disgusting combo)

 

Damia (Bug Elf deck)

 

Numot (Stax)

 

Griselbrand (French)

 

Ghave (Uber combo)

 

Muzzio (Oops, Blightsteel)

You might want to think about Hellkite Tyrant. He's a pretty good beater on his own but he pretty much seals the game with Mycosynth Lattice. Another combo you could add as backup is Liquimetal Coating and Viashino Heretic.
@Smoke_Stack -- I could put in Darksteel Myr, but where?  Everything right now kinda serves a purpose except for my counters and draw spells.  I could drop the fatty, especially if I go with Dauthi_Warlord's suggestion...

@Dauthi_Warlord -- I love the idea of the Hellkite Tyrant.  Alternate win conditions are wonderful, and I could still run him and the Shatterstorms for max effect, just in case I only hve 18 permanents after he takes my opponent's...  The backup combo is awesome, but it'd take a little too much focus outof the deck for my liking.

Okay, there's my augmented decklist.  I hope only having three of each of my actual combo pieces won't hurt too bad, but it looks like I need the space for protection, search, card draw, and mana ramp.

why cant you just run vandalblast instead of shatterstorm? that takes out the need to make your stuff indestructible

color preferences (1st is fav and so on):

i have one possible problem that would wreck your entire deck...mycosynth lattice makes things colorless, it doesn't turn things into artifacts. just because something is colorless, that doesn't mean it's an artifact. so in a sense shatterstorm wouldn't do anything (btw idk why you wouldn't simply run vandalblast...it takes out the need to make your own stuff indestructible)

so yeah...i don't even think the deck is capable of doing what you want it too...if thats what you wanted it to do... 


You should read mycosynth lattice again, focus on the first sentence.
vandalblast is a very good call though.

which is why that post is no longer there

Shattering Spree is good too. You don't even need to worry about the red-intensive cost if you have Lattice out.
@StatueOfLuberty -- Vandalblast is an insaenly good call and that means I can rip out one of the combo pieces.  Thank you so much, I wasn't looking foward to needing to cast a Darksteel Forge.  Also, they're a little expensive, not that the while deck isn't expensive at this point...

That looks about right, added in some more myrs for quick creatures, mana fixing and eventually affinity pieces, does this look about right now?
