Aether Theorist Discussion

I love the deck! Maybe add in some proliferate, like Thrummingbird or Tezzeret's Gambit, just for that extra energy. You could add in Aether Theorist or Glimmer of Genius for some card advantage.

I finally opt for the Aether Theorist instead of the Aethertorch Renegade.

Thank you for the kind words! The deck has been performing much better since I added in more card draw. It helps the deck survive Vandalblasts more often and stay ahead when it gets ahead. I don't think I really like Unsubstantiate in the deck and am deciding between Spell Swindle and Mystic Confluence, but am leaning toward the confluence.

Sometimes your cascades aren't the best (See Aether Theorist and Decoction Module) but basically any spell in the deck will still forward your game plan. This isn't a deck that plays Maelstrom Wanderer and attacks for a bunch of damage every time. At least half the time you want to hang back. It's more about hitting critical mass and going off that way.

Im not really sure what to suggest for this deck.

Phytoburst is a fun one to play. I've enjoyed using it both in standard and now modern. I think Artisan's Sorrow is a bit better than Appetite for the Unnatural. It comes down to if you prefer scry or life gain really.

There has to be something better than Terrain Elemental you can put in here. Maybe a Battering Krasis or Aether Theorist.

I've thought of Attune with Aether, but I haven't had trouble with getting specific mana because of Hub and Spire. I'll see how I feel about that about playtesting some more.

I do like the idea of Whirler Virtuoso though, I've also thought about Aether Theorist, Shielded Aether Thief and Rogue Refiner too!

Id recommend dropping both Scrapper Champion, Servant of the Conduit and Bristling Hydra. Scrapper and Hydra eat the needed energy that you want for your Electrostatic Pummeler. You can replace Them with Thriving Turtle, Aether Theorist, and either Fabrication Module or Woodweaver's Puzzleknot. The first 2 creatures I listed are low cost, can be used as chump blockers, and Aether Theorist is a good way to scry until you find the cards you want. I also recommend that you drop 1 of both Botanical Sanctum and Rootbound Crag and toss in 2 Evolving Wilds. Land tutors might seem like ass but in a tri color deck where you are running only 2 Islands and Mountains, you might find your self locked out of those colors. I understand that they both give you the colors you are short of, but I run an energy deck of my own and find that the Evolving Wilds has been a lot more useful than those types of lands. Thirdly, find something that you dont like in the deck or doesnt work out for you and try to toss in 1 or 2 more Harnessed Lightning.

You're absolutely right about Larger Than Life, I knew I was forgetting something. I tried Trophy Mage at first and traded them out for Aether Theorist to get more energy and scry as I had no problems pulling Pummelers.

Oloro_Magic thank you for the suggestion! For the consistency what cards do you think it would be better to have the most of it? For example, if I had 4 Aether Theorist (wich I already updated to) it would be better to later find Cast Out or other card in need, is this a good idea? And I would really appreciate if you could suggest me what creatures, enchantments and other cards i should keep it or not. :)
