Stoneforge Mystic and a sword or 2? Might be cool. Also maybe Blade Splicer because getting a 3/3 from a blink seems better than a brainstorm or reanimating something when Reveillark dies. Maybe Fblthp, the Lost instead of Watcher for Tomorrow I understand wanting to use Watcher but Fblthp is a better blocker imo. Good luck with building!!

I enjoyed the article, nicely written as always.

Obviously there are too many Lords for you to list them all, but my personal favorite are the Splicers (Blade Splicer, Master Splicer, Maul Splicer, Sensor Splicer, Vital Splicer, and Wing Splicer).

I think they're really flavorful (roboticists who specialize in working on golems, can apply their specialty to any golem, and who always bring one from the shop whenever they show up) and fun to build around. They're a strong example of what I most love about Lords.

Wouldn't something like Lena, Selfless Champion or Nomads' Assembly work better than Darien, King of Kjeldor ? Sengir Autocrat , Weaponcraft Enthusiast , Marsh Flitter and Blade Splicer are very efficient sources of bodies. It think a Dictate of Heliod or Cathars' Crusade would work much better than Approach of the Second Sun . Check out my decks utilizing wide boards and death triggers: Edgar Aggro, Erebos EDH, Ayli

Your maindeck severly lacks both interaction & ways to close out the game.

I mean that you only have threats that win slowly, and your interactions is very limited, and doesn't stop the opponent from exectuing their gameplan (4x path is not enough, and Remand goes pretty badly alongside Spell Queller , as it does very little to protect it).

In general you want Growth Spiral in your deck if you want to "skip your third turn" in the sense that you want to have 4 lands on turn 3 WHILE holding up mana for interaction.
The deck plays a single 4+ cmc card - this i would dare to say that its just 4 card in the 75 to do very little - its wasted space.
(The best example of when to play this card is sultai wilderness teachings control - which wants to hold up counterspells on t2, then have man for Cryptic Command or Wilderness Reclamation )

Using Eladamri's Call to get a creature basically means you paid an extra GW to get said creature. I would dare to go as far as to say the card is close to useless if your deck is not built to abuse the interaction of given specific card. Your is not - as all of your cards (in theory) should create extra value together unlike with something like the vizier druid combo which is looking for those exact cards. Nor do you play silver bullet cards that hose strategies so bad that you auto win once said cards resolve.

In theory you should have some way to win the game in your deck.
If you build a flicker deck, then there are plenty of card that do this far better than what you have (and speed matter, as there are decks like tron where you must shut the door on them, unless you are some draw-go control list), so some example cards:
Blade Splicer
Wall of Resurgence
And imho its a sin to leave out some of the best card draw and selection engines this archetype can offer:
Mulldrifter <- for 3 mana and ephemerate you draw 4 cards and get a flying body
Watcher for Tomorrow
(and playing some sort of mass flicker to survive board wipes - aka hate cards against creatures - might be a good idea Eerie Interlude & Ghostly Flicker do this fine)

@Saljen Overall i like the suggestions, but i think 4 of both cycle lands will hurt as this deck is more focused on early game to set up the value. I will definitely consider the extra Soul Herder as it seems like a good idea. the Blade Splicer s are necessary as they are the main win con as flicker targets. Cast Out is just a bit too slow and Path to Exile , while it doesn't have cycling, is still very worthwhile as removal, as in the second game there will most likely be enchantment hate now put in.

You should definitely run 4x Soulherder . I've been playing a similar deck for a while now and that card wins you more games than any other. Adding Green would give you more cycling lands (you should be running 4x Secluded Steppe and 4x Lonely Sandbar , as they are by far the best cycling lands) by letting you run Tranquil Thicket and Scattered Groves . Coiling Oracle is probably the main reason to throw green in there though. Cast Out is your best removal. W to cycle it, and 4 to take care of any permanent; making it more versatile than your current removal. Bounce lands like Azorius Chancery will let you return cycling lands back to your hand that you were forced to play early, letting you get extra value from them. This might just be a personal thing, but I ran 4x Blade Splicer in my early revisions and it just never did as much as I hoped it would have.

There were a bunch of traditional Tempered Steel budget affinity lists that are worth a look.

Have you looked at Thraben Inspector instead of Ardent Recruit? The artifact/redraw is worth a lot. There are some interesting modern artifact staples- Etched Champion , Blade Splicer , etc.

Leonin Elder is an interesting anti-burn tool, Servo Exhibition is a decent artifact count source.

The main trick to budget lists is to plan for your local meta and play to that- don't be scared to maindeck sideboard tools to get more slots.
