Bomat Courier Discussion

Not really sure what format(if any) you're going for or what exactly you're deck is trying do. I've been a big fan of artifact decks for along time. Here are a few cards that I think are outstanding.
Arcbound Ravager Master of EtheriumCranial Plating Thoughtcast Bomat Courier Etherium SculptorWhir of Invention Chief EngineerMetalworker Grand ArchitectHangarback Walker Walking Ballista Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas Ensoul Artifact Vault Skirge Signal Pest
I also think that Reliquary Tower count could be cut down 4 seems excessive, maybe more Inventors' Fair 3 at most since it's legendary, I also really like using Tomb of the Spirit Dragon, Blinkmoth Nexus and Inkmoth Nexus and pretty tough to. Lastly the Artifact lands Darksteel Citadel Seat of the Synod Vault of Whispers Tree of Tales Ancient Den Great Furnace
The artifact lands with exception of Darksteel Citadel are banned in Modern and Standard.
I've been working on an unconventional artifact deck recently you can check it out here Wrath of the Machines

I had that in the deck at one point, but you also have to consider that Servo Schematic brings three artifacts AND it synergizes with Scrap Trawler. With Scrap Trawler, you can sacrifice the Servo Schematic (and its servos) to do damage. Using the Scrap Trawler effect, you could then return a Bomat Courier which can be used to sacrifice immediately for another set of damage which could return a Walking Ballista. The Ballista can be dropped as a zero drop for 4 more damage and, if Pia's Revolution is out, they should be low enough that they cannot afford to take 3; therefore, it goes back to your hand for the finishing blow.

So I think this is a good idea, but I have some questions. And these are all meant to be constructive- I'm asking because I don't understand some of your card choices.
1- why are you playing Heart of Kiran? It seems to me it's in there as mana? The only creatures you have to crew it are ones that would be better attackers than it is... And you only have 5 walkers in the deck? That's a $14.00 mana rock and only when you have the Statuary out. And when you don't it's a $14 table ornament.
2- Why are you playing Bomat Courier? It dies to your own Sweltering Suns, or any removal your opponent is playing. Is the plan to use it as mana and then to maybe draw cards? It's too fragile for that many purposes. You could run any of the implements to tap for mana and then get you an effect and a card. Implement of Combustion, Implement of Examination or Implement of Malice all can tap for improvise and still be sacrificed for their benefit and a card if needed. Or even the Metalspinner's Puzzleknot- replaces itself in your hand when you play it, taps for improvise, sac for a another card.
3- What happens if you don't draw the Statuary? Or if gets blown up? Your other win conditions start at cmc 5. I think it's a mistake to have cut the lands. This is essentially a mid range deck with some expensive cmc cards that you want to cheat into play, but if you can't do that you're probably in trouble. And since you aren't drawing any real card draw, it could be find the lands if you aren't drawing them.
4- Why no card draw? With only 2 copies of Bolas, it's not likely you'll see him. Get some drawing going on so you can keep that hand full. You'll need the removal, but if you're all out, you need to reload. Reverse Engineer is the improvise card draw spell, or Glimmer of Genius to get deep.
I think this is a very cool. Just think it needs some polish.
Hope this helps.

I agree with what you said, thank you. A lot of what I have here is stuff I pulled from packs or traded for. I just started buying singles so maybe I will throw some of those in! What, in your opinion, should I cut for those? Maybe one Fatal Push and one Battle at the Bridge to put in two Unlicensed Disintegration and remove one of each Bomat Courier, Servo Schematic, and Scrapheap Scrounger to insert three copies of Fling?

landofMordor Thanks for the feedback.
Alms of the Vein is great in certain matchups, but IMO not good enough to mainboard. As you can see I have it in the SB here versus burn and to swap for Fiery Temper against decks without small creatures.
The synergy of Demigod of Revenge in this deck is with Disciple of Deceit, when you untap Diciple you put one god in the grave and get the other one to play for putting both (or more) on the field, or if you need Voldaren Pariah or any of the 5 CMC sideboard cards you get that the first activation, then on second activation put Pariah on the field with madness and get a new god. Demigod also has great synergy with self discard in general, and is awesomw against control since the cast trigger can't be countered. For me it has been super good.
Bomat Courier is a discard outlet and hand refiller that's also aggressive, plus he turns on our Skirsdag High Priest on demand and flips liliana heretic healer, it is also a very good card against Living End which is no the rise in modern. Vexing Devil is good early pressure, turns on skirsdag, flips liliana and comes back the same turn, and can be picked up with Grave Scrabbler for more pressure. This deck goes for burn/aggro and aims to pressure the life total fast, and the self sacrifice effects are an important part of the synergy with making sure there are creatures dying and put in the grave to recur.
So far in testing the copters, skirsdag and attacks have been enough to tap my stuff, but I'm considering adding a 1-off Cultivator's caravan or a 4th copter, you don't really want more than 1 vehicle in play though, so they are often bad topdecks which is why I run 3 and rely on looting and Diciple activations to find one. I used to run this with 4 Caravans and Asylum Seeker for crewing, but I like this version better since the copters doubles as a discard outlet.

More Vehicles, if you're going with Inspired! Those guys are usually too small to connect reliably, so tapping outside of combat is good. You can't rely on the High Priest to make that happen every time.
I would cut Bomat Courier, Demigod of Revenge, and Vexing Devil in lieu of Dark Withering, Alms of the Vein (an all-star), Cathartic Reunion or Faithless Looting. Those other cards lack synergy except by being self-recurring in Revenge's case.
Either way, though, love this! Original and effective.

If I could add my 2 cents, I think Sram, Senior Edificer could have a home here. All those Cartouches would give you a decent draw engine.
Also, Built to Last/Smash is great IF you have an ornithopter out, but if not, it's not really at it's highest potential. Bomat Courier could be a decent addition, getting you on the ground swinging, and saccing for card draw once it's served it's purpose..
