miixxedup on standard G/B counters - hold on to your dice

Cool deck! Tried something myself to. I found Sylvan Advocate pretty nice as a early game creature as exchange for the cub?. Also, Walking Ballista was real MVP in my deck. You can shoot the counters before it being killed (which saved me quite a few times already on Xmage). Really recommand putting that up by 2 or 3.

Lastly, Armorcraft Judge is good in this deck I really agree, however sometimes it is just not worth it, maybe add 1 or 2Rishkar's Expertise?

[AER] Another Counter Deck is my deck, feel free to check it out, I'm also experimenting with it! What do you think about the Metallic Mimic Animation Module combo?

Nantuko Husk is a good suggestion, but I have opted for cards such as Carrion Feeder and Bloodflow Connoisseur as they have more synergy with cards like Animation Module and Primal Vigor. The counters also stick around, which is more advantageous with the deck because it tends to wait for a win condition rather than wacking-away with attacks.

Goes very well with Animation Module.

Thanks @SlippinJimmy. I think I will bring in 2 Maurauders to replace my 2 Dranas. That double black has indeed been a pain. I have 3 Animation Module and 3 Durable Handicraft - this feels like the right combination but subject to tweaking or changes during S/B. I had already replaced Baloth Pup with Scrounging Bandar, but I may put two back in place of two Renegades. This deck doesn't really have to cast anything turn one, so that may be a reasonable switch.

I won't get to actually test this against real opponents until this week when it hits MTGO, but so far Walking Ballista has been an unexpected all-star since adding. Even if it weren't for how it disrupts the Saheeli combo, it's great as the game goes on and you have mana plus at least one Winding Constrictor out. Two cards I haven't tested yet from your list are Rishkar's Expertise and Maulfist Revolutionary, so I will be looking at those as well. I will have to sacrifice my Tireless Tracker's to add one of those, and that card sometimes is the only thing keeping card draw going if I haven't had great draws earlier.

Animation Module to make an abundant amount of 2/2s for 1 mana with Metallic Mimic?

Panharmonicon doesn't interact with Fabrication Module. Fabrication module's ability is triggered by you gaining energy, not by anything entering the battlefield. In your example, Aethertorch Renegade enters the battlefield and causes its own ability to trigger. Panharmonicon causes this ability to trigger twice instead. When each of those triggers resolves, you'll get some energy and Fabrication Module will trigger, but Panharmonicon won't affect the Module.

Panharmonicon does affect Decoction Module, because it triggers whenever a creature enters the battlefield.

Together, Animation Module, Decoction Module, and Fabrication Module already form a loop that you can keep running as long as you have mana available to pay. They don't need any help from Panharmonicon.

Also, partially related, would this trigger an infinite loop with an Animation Module and Decoction Module also on the field?

The reason I went Master Trinketeer over Metallic Mimic was that if worse comes to worse the Trinketeer can make servos. I considered Animation Module, but was a bit put off by having to pay for each activation. You could probably do a variant that goes all in on servo swarm, and in that case the mimic, module, and perhaps even Chief of the Foundry could be good. As for Herald of Anguish, if Kaladesh's trends are indicative of Aether Revolt's, The herald's price should settle down a little, and at that point I'll strongly consider it. But hey, this is just my thought process, and I could be entirely wrong.
