just for easy viewing, these are all the common modular creatures. Arcbound Bruiser Arcbound Hybrid Arcbound Stinger Arcbound Worker Arcbound Wanderer I don't think the wanderer is a good fit in this deck though

I was wondering if there was a reason you didn't add the artifact creatures with the modular keyword ability? Arcbound Stinger would arrive with 2 +1/+1 counters on it (the 1 doubled) then if it dies you can move the 2 +1/+1 counters again and double those. Seems really good. There are only 4 arcbound creatures that fit for this deck, but it seems like a nice addition.

Be mindful that the Arcbound Stinger and Arcbound Worker can only move their counters onto another Artifact Creature. >15% of the deck steals creatures, even though you have a ton of sac outlets. Is the plan to recur your own creatures for value, or steal others?

@Flooremoji: Thank you for the upvote. Arcbound Ravager and Steel Overseer are perfect and I know them...but right now I can't afford to buy you correctly recognized this is a budget deck... Maybe one day I will get some copies of them :) Right now I will put in Tempered Steel and change some of the none artifact creatures. What do you think about Ethersworn Canonist , Arcbound Worker and Arcbound Stinger ?

Might want to also consider Arcbound Stinger and Xantid Swarm for your flying insect deck. I have a similar deck, but it's more based on pumping bees with elves. Feel free to check it out here: Elvish Beekeeper. I'd love to read your comments and suggestions.

I think the Arcbound Stinger is EXACTLY what I had in mind. It's Flying, so that really helps it evade opponents blockers. And I agree with the Arcbound Crusher as well. It's also got evasion with Trample, and the fact that it gets more counters as you put more artifacts into play helps significantly. It's more expensive CMC-wise, so don't go for a full playset of them.

Since you're going with the Animation Module, have you looked into Master Biomancer? I know he's not an artifact, but he MAY add enough value to you that put 1 or 2 in just for a backup plan. You have enough of the "any color" lands that you could fairly easily get the blue.

Also...have you thought about Westvale Abbey?

kojiro Awesome suggestions! I will try replacing some of the 0 cost cards for some more modular stuff. Maybe Arcbound Stinger? I really dig Corpejack but, I would like to stick to artifact creatures because of modular. I think I might try Arcbound Crusher. What do you think kojiro?
