Adaptive Automaton Discussion

you have 6 ramp cards in here, its a little low, so I'd say look at adding: Solemn Simulacrum, Caged Sun, Myriad Landscape and Chandra, Torch of Defiance .

This deck is also lacking card advantage, it will play out all the cards in its hand too quickly and you will not have enough gas to finish off everyone. for that I would look at Solemn Simulacrum and Chandra, Torch of Defiance again, as well as Outpost Siege, Forgotten Cave, Smoldering Crater, Buried Ruin, Mutavault, Ghitu Encampment, and Grenzo, Havoc Raiser.

Other cards to consider:

Boggart Shenanigans, Hazoret's Monument, Metallic Mimic, Goblin Lackey, Warren Instigator, Ogre Battledriver, Hellrider, Adaptive Automaton, Chaos Warp, Reverberate, Fork, Obelisk of Urd,

Hi! I would replace your commander with Sigarda, Heron's Grace just to try tokens theme. In this case you need cards like Parallel Lives, Anointed Procession, Rings of Brighthearth and Illusionist's Bracers. Doubling Season depends on your budget. You also need something to boost your tokens: Coat of Arms, Honor of the Pure, Glorious Anthem, Gaea's Anthem, Adaptive Automaton and/or Metallic Mimic.

What about Adaptive Automaton? It is kind of like Metallic Mimic but you don't have to play it first.

solarPULSAR Filling out playsets of lands and of Adaptive Automaton (to have something down earlier game or to pump into bigger threats) has left me in a weird place. I decided to go for 2-ofs of the bigger Eldrazi but I want to pair it down to playsets for consistency. Would you recommend dropping the 2x Ulamog's Crusher for 2x more Bane of Bala Ged or to complete a playset of Eldrazi Devastator?

If you are building Werewolf tribal, would it not be worthwhile to move up to the full four for each of your Anthems mainboard, i.e., Full Moon's Rise, Howlpack Resurgence, and Kruin Outlaw  Flip for the menace effect, probably removing one-ofs and two-ofs like Gruul Charm, Tower Defense, Briarpack Alpha, Mage Slayer, and Clan Defiance?

Other tribal options include Adaptive Automaton and Metallic Mimic for another lord effect.

But if you feel the deck works for you, than that's cool too.

this deck is pretty nice but could do with a couple changes.

switch Adaptive Automaton with Metallic Mimic.

squeeze in Sylvok Lifestaff so you can gain life from your sacked creatures.

Staff of the Flame Magus would also be helpful.

you don't really need both Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves in the same deck. take the greaves out.

and I think that is it unless I am missing something.

Sure, didn't know that card existed.. lol
Not sure I'd switch for my list, as I have Adaptive Automaton. Seems perfect for you though..
