destindigi on Saheeli Thopters

If you're going wide with thopters I'd cut these cards: Swiftfoot Boots , Urza’s Tome , Endless Atlas , God-Pharaoh's Gift .

Since most of your artifacts will be tokens, I don't think Padeem, Consul of Innovation and One with the Machine will be that effective unless you just want hexproof from Padeem. Same with Metalwork Colossus (not much cost reduction) and Traxos, Scourge of Kroog won't trigger that much. I don't think Ancient Stone Idol and Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer really fit the theme.

I don't think you need as many mana rocks since Saheeli discounts everything. I'd shift more to be 2 cost mana rocks if anything so Saheeli gets out faster. You don't really need the ones that cost like 6 and make 3.

Magmaquake is a great card that doesn't wipe your thopters - if you need more board wipes I'd do more like that. Deprive is bad just use Counterspell instead.

Some recommendations: Ghirapur AEther Grid , Pia Nalaar , Broodstar , Darksteel Juggernaut , Steel Overseer , Lodestone Myr , Blinkmoth Urn and Gravitational Shift . Check out cards with Metalcraft too, there might be some good ones and you'll basically always have it active.

Because you have a decent amount of artifacts in this deck, add cards with Affinity for Artifacts (e.g. Broodstar, Mycosynth Golem, and Thoughtcast). Also, try the Time Sieve and Thopter Assembly combo for infinite turns at an upkeep cost of . Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Spawnsire of Ulamog and Eye of Ugin are some good ones.

Just got to say that I'm having a blast with this build - I could only take one deck in with me to the LGS and chose this one from my 12 EDH decks...thanks again for posting the list :D

I was actually going to mention the land count...I'm running 37 and am yet to mull ;)

A friend gave me a nice card for the deck today - Broodstar. It hits the table easily with it's built in Affinity and can be a fat 15/15 Flyer...nice big late-game finisher that you can attach Swiftfoot Boots to and swing in for the win!

I am in the process of reforging my Breya deck (I stopped playing it because I dislike playing infinite combos) and this deck is exactly the inspiriation I needed! Thanks! I have to figure out some other win conditions because the game modes we play forbid winning through "you win the game" cards. I consider Marionette Master and Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer + Darksteel Juggernaut or Broodstar to close out games out of nowhere.

Looking forward to see your deck evolve!

I don't love Broodstar, Etherium-Horn Sorcerer.

Trash for Treasure has never been good for me. Star of Extinction costs too much imo.

Everflowing Chalice is strictly better than Ur-Golem's Eye. Counterspell is strictly better than Stoic Rebuttal.

I feel like Saheeli's best ability is her second by a pretty wide margin, so I think adding higher cmc stuff to cast off that could be good.

Thoughtcast + Broodstar + Myr Superion + Sword of the Meek + Time Sieve + Ashnod's Altar + Thopter Foundry + Possibly Skullclamp + stuff like Chromatic Star + Prophetic Prism will help draw and help get over the land barrier + any tezzeret planeswalker pretty much. Maybe Dack Fayden + Chandra, Torch of Defiance.
