Gidgetimer on Ethereal Absolution & Angel of ...

Yes. Ethereal Absolution's ability is a static ability and applies to all relevant creatures without having to use the stack or wait to resolve. Fabricate is a triggered ability and will therefore go on the stack and wait to resolve. This means that there will be a round of priority before it resolves. Before a player receives priority state-based actions will be checked and Angel of Invention will be put in the graveyard for having 0 or less toughness.

If I play Angel of Invention when my opponent has Ethereal Absolution out, does the Angel die for having 0 toughness before it can get the +1/+1 counters from it’s ETB?

I like a token-heavy Alesha strategy like you have here.

Angel of Invention does two things that are important for a tokens strategy. 1) it makes tokens and 2) it's an anthem, which is super important to finish a game in non-green swarm decks imo.

Anger is a must-play in my opinion.

Purphoros, God of the Forge is probably the best payoff for playing tokens after Skullclamp .

Stoneforge Mystic , Steelshaper's Gift , Open the Armory are all important too for finding clamp.

OmletMojo12, what do you suggest Angel of Invention replace?

The tokens and anthem effect are good, but I don't have repetitive bounce effects to make that a more than one time token generator.

ChrisHansonBiomancin, Gideon Blackblade is a 4/4 with indestructible, and if I flip Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip that's another 4/4 with indestructible. Angel of Invention (which may be a card worth replacing?-- I haven't decided yet) is yet another potential 4/3 with flying. Smuggler's Copter does quite a bit of work. There are ways to close out the game.

Your point is well taken, though, that something to make a bigger "splash" might be worth considering. Thank you for the comment!

Thank you so much ChrisHansonBiomancin! What a great feedback.

I really like the idea of Scion of Vitu-Ghazi , with Fated Infatuation i can simply populate a Hornet Queen, love that.

Whirler Rogue also seems like a good idea, not too strong, but a good way to go, i just need the tokens.

Not sure about Biogenic Ooze yet, maybe I'm just underestimating it, maybe I'm just too much in love with Frontier Siege . Gonna add it and try to find out.

Angel of Invention seems also like a very nice card, actually even better than Wingmate Roc .

Icon of Ancestry is just better than Angel of Invention but what worries me is that you aren't running enough creatures. In the meta you kind have to have lots of threats to get through removal and hand disruption. Keeping a decent hand with a creature, a planeswalker and a couple of spells will lose 100% of the time against Thoughtseize . Also the creature base feels Thalia, Heretic Cathar , Law-Rune Enforcer and Elite Guardmage feel kinda out of it. Honestly Gadwick, the Wizened seems like a great pick if you were more blue orientated. In the sideboard, Rest in Peace over Tormod's Crypt and 3 Dovin's Veto is next to useless. Counterspell work best in Pioneer when you have many to make your opponent play around them, 3 counterspells in the board won't really do that.

This looks like a fun deck, I always love me some Hornets. My biggest recommendation would probably be to add in more token-producing cards, starting with 2 more Wingmate Roc, since right now you only have 8 cards that do so versus 19 cards that depend on having those token-producers to combo with and are pretty dead cards otherwise. Unfortunately 3 and 4-drop options look pretty thin but one idea is Whirler Rogue . If you don't mind being a little crowded at 5-drop there are several good options, such as Angel of Invention , Biogenic Ooze , Scion of Vitu-Ghazi , and Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves .

You also might want a few more mana dorks in order to speed things up, especially if you have a lot of 5 drops so you can hit them consistently on turn 3-4. I'm thinking 8 would be a good number given your curve.
