Aeronaut Admiral Discussion
2 weeks ago
I play a vehicles deck as well but mine has a stronger emphasis on bonuses from crewing. Creatures like Hateflayer and King Macar, the Gold-Cursed might be worthy of your consideration. Also Aethershield Artificer , Veteran Motorist , and Weldfast Engineer all give a vehicle or two a little boost. Sai, Master Thopterist , Pia Nalaar , Efficient Construction , and Thopter Spy Network are all decent servo/thopter creators; and Master Trinketeer pumps all those creations for better crewing! Then add in Anointed Procession , Parallel Lives and/or ! Doubling Season ! for even more tokens. Start Your Engines and Aerial Modification are good inclusions as well. Some cards that we both need to put in our decks are Padeem, Consul of Innovation , Aeronaut Admiral and Built to Smash . Atraxa, Praetors' Voice and Breya, Etherium Shaper would be great in your deck! Mirrorworks ? Mirage Mirror ?

My idea is to make all of the above as 30 card Modern legal decks, where you take any two pieces and combine them before the game starts to make a full 60 card deck. Each 30 card deck will also have a "champion" - a mythic or rare that is the lynchpin - while the rest of the cards are commons or uncommons. For example, BR aristocrats:
This can be combined with say, RW Vehicle aggro:
1 Depala, Pilot Exemplar - the champion
4 Veteran Motorist
2 Renegade Freighter
2 Untethered Express
2 Consulate Dreadnought
1 Aeronaut Admiral
2 Speedway Fanatic
1 Caught in the Brights
2 Court Homunculus
You can easily combine the two to make a capable deck. Keep going for the other deck archetypes.
What this idea does is provide a mini-game for more experienced players and variety of gameplay, while less experienced ones get a view of deckbuilding and a form of "smash-up" that is more fun than simply picking up a ready deck. If you want to really spice it up, add some loose cards players can switch in between games - a sort of a sideboard.
For example, with 10 30-card decks, you have 90 combinations.

Okay! thanks for the comments!
@SgtGomez404: I really like Pia's Revolution and its especially great in 1v1 format (better now since that Baral, Chief of Compliance is banned, but in a multiplayer format its a little bit less impactful, since there's more people, but ill keep it in mind. As for Throne of the God-Pharaoh its another great addition, so ill also keep it in mind, however, the deck doesn't have a bunch of creatures out at any given time so. I'll do some experiments to see if it will be impactful.
@Hexcimal: Thanks for the suggestions! The more information the better! Let's see here; I really like Aerial Modification and sometimes it has won me games, I like having it in addition to Aeronaut Admiral to add some redundancy. It also turns one of your vehicles into a blocker so there's that.
Reckless Fireweaver: I actually agree with you, it doesn't really do much and I think it's because it's not a mass artifact deck, at most you're plopping down one per turn so definitely something I can but.
I should probably add Gideon's Intervention in there, I just don't have the space!
Thanks for all the suggestions !!! I appreciate it!!

@IzzetSeer: I think Aeronaut Admiral is pretty important actually, sure it dies easily, but so does Sram, Senior Edificer etc. He's especially important in the late game where he can literally win games or turn the tide by making all your ground vehicles fly. Then again this deck is more focused on vehicles rather than dwarfs.
Solemn Recruit seems pretty good but I dont have a way to consistently trigger revolt so its less impactful.
Yea, Mirage Mirror is just really powerful in a singleton format!

Mirage Mirror seems very good, I should try that out.

i'll add needle spires to see how it goes.
I initially never wanted to add Aethersphere Harvester, because it involves energy, meaning i'll only be able to use his ability twice.

yoni24 I was running similar deck at Kaladesh Showdowns in my LGS (tbh i was running different janky brew each tournament and panharmonicon combos were most successful). With R/W "Start you vehicles" i ended 2-2 winning against 4c Marvel (he died because of Dreadnought with Siege Modification) and G/R Pummeler while losing to Mardu Vehicles (Fatal pushes + Gideon) and Jeskai Control (Blessed Alliance hurts a lot). Yep, Spires are tapped but its dual land that might close out the game. If You insist on flying then Aeronaut Admiral might be right choice. And don't forget about Aethersphere Harvester which is pretty damn good vehicle. But all is up to You :D .

Played against this quickly last night, and don't feel I got a good taste of it. Fantastic combination of cards came forward right away, with the combo of Aeronaut Admiral and Ovalchase Dragster pretty much decimating me due to having no Flying or Reach. Commander never even came out, though I'm scared to see Depala, Pilot Exemplar in action given how quickly things began to suck on my end.
