Aetherborn Marauder Discussion

Your deck is drawing almost exclusively from the standard card pool, but with the modern pool there are some cards which are direct upgrades. For example you have Workshop Assistant but Myr Retriever does the same thing and costs less to play. Another example would be Foundry Assembler, in a mono black deck with just swamps, why not play Dross Golem instead?
Your deck also seems to want to do two things, be Aetherborn tribal and be an artifact deck, that sort of schism tends to result in a less optimal deck. Which brings me to my next point, you aren't running 4x of any of your cards, not even an all star like Gifted Aetherborn, this means your deck will have little or no consistency over several games.
If you were wanting to go the black artifact route then; Vault Skirge, Phylactery Lich and possibly Scrapheap Scrounger, Glaze Fiend or Painsmith alongside Chief of the Foundry Ornithopter and Foundry Inspector this would give a reasonable artifact based aggro structure.
If on the other-hand you really want to do Aetherborn tribal then; Midnight Entourage, Adaptive Automaton, Weaponcraft Enthusiast and possibly Defiant Salvager and Flayer Husk alongside Aetherborn Marauder and Gifted Aetherborn, this is probably more mid-range than aggro, but it would be a start.
My last point is on removal, if a removal spell costs more than it isn't really viable. In mono-black on a budget use Victim of Night, Smother or Grasp of Darkness and if your not on a budget Fatal Push.
I hope that is of some help, have fun brewing your deck.

This is playing a LOT better, now.
Actually, taking a good look at your Creatures, something like this might work:
2x Aetherborn Marauder - good for late game evasion, or to block fliers
2x Bristling Hydra - one of the best Creatures in Standard
2x Longtusk Cub - a bit hit or miss in testing
3x Rishkar, Peema Renegade - extra copy because it synergises so well with Winding Constrictor in the early game
2x Servant of the Conduit - I'd love a third copy, but can't think what I would take out
3x Verdurous Gearhulk - extra copy because it makes Creatures HUGE in the late game
1x Voltaic Brawler - I can see the value of this at all stages of the game
4x Winding Constrictor - lynchpin of the deck

Match #1 Was against a Mono-blue Drake Haven & Thing in the Ice FlipStill problems with control decks. In the second game I had him down to 2 life before he stabilized. Wondering if siding in Scrapheap Scrounger against control will be beneficial0-2
Match #2 vs UW Monument.I usually break 1-2 against this deck. Damned Spell Queller. Sweepers were hiding both games this time0-2
Match #3 vs a home brew U/R Arrgo2-0
Match #4 vs Ramunap RedLast week I got destroyed by this deck.This time I hit the Herald of Anguish by turn five in both games. The other MVP's were Aetherborn Marauder and Hour of Glory to take out his Hazoret the Fervent.2-0
So far this deck is averaging 2-2 in local LGS tournaments.

This gives us a 20 card core to the deck, from which we can go several directions. I'm thinking of exploring a couple of options, like a more controlling deck and a more synergistic resilient aggro deck.
We'll want to keep the land count pretty high, so we'll go for 24 lands which gives us 16 cards to play with. Grasp of Darkness is extremely good, but is going to come out of standard at some point which I'm not so sure about but you'll be able to play it for a few weeks. Fatal Push is very good but I'd probably only run 2 or 3. We're going to want to run some Yahenni's Expertise because it's pseudo-card advantage. I feel that it's almost worth running Unlicensed Disintegration in this build but it does make the manabase fucky. Aetherborn Marauder is an evasive beater that might get some big hits in depending.
so this begins to look like
- 4x Grasp of Darkness
- 3x Fatal Push
- 3x Yahenni's Expertise
- 4x Unlicensed Disintegration
- 2x Aetherborn Marauder
with lands looking like
- 4x Aether Hub
- 2x Ramunap Ruins
- 2x Ifnir Deadlands
- 2x Scavenger Grounds
- 9 Swamp
- 5 mountain (adjust to taste)
This one is a bit more fun, I think. We're going to go

Creatures that I could see removing: Abzan Skycaptain, Aetherborn Marauder, Ahn-Crop Crasher, Alesha's Vanguard, Bala Ged Scorpion, Nef-Crop Entangler, Night Market Aeronaut, Priest of the Blood Rite, Propeller Pioneer, Sandsteppe Outcast, and Thriving Ibex. (these creatures are just plain bad)
Things you should think about adding: Anthem effects, card draw, ramp, and removal.
Also: You have the most 3 cost cards even thought you are always going to play Alesha, Who Smiles at Death on turn three.
