Cathar's Shield Discussion

Diabolic Tutor? But yeah Merchant's Dockhand does let me dig through cards in the longer game, but this deck wants to be reactive, in contrary to the 0-CMC build. You need to have Fatal Push and Metallic Rebuke in your hand while you go online slowly with your artifacts (that actually does something, not like Cathar's Shield), and to do that you need to sculpt your hand. You dumb your hand and they Murder your Herald of Anguish. Now what? Cross your fingers and hope to draw into gas? I'd rather do the opposite :)
I like the servo build more than 0-cmc because they have a board pressence :) If you are running more planeswalkers, definitely play Heart of Kiran.
Thank you very much for the upvote! Top #3 today, wow :)!

Pick the Brain is also still a really bad card. If you're worried about combos then Lost Legacy is a far better option, if you want to slow down creatures then you can use more Grasp of Darkness or Harsh Scrutiny. If you just want value discard then you already have Transgress the Mind and you could get Collective Brutality pretty easily. Pick the Brain is not what you want to be playing on turn 3 ever. Against aggro it pretty much confirms your death, against control they'll just Negate it. Against midrange you might hit one useful card but you'll never have Delirium that early and late game everything but control will have a pretty much empty hand, and Control will just counter it. Trust me, Pick the Brain is a bad card.
Contraband Kingpin is really good here, being able to scry your deck basically is insane. It'd take cutting some good cards but this deck really wants it.
So here's what I would cut and then add:

Yeah I had similar results play testing with the alterations you suggested. Chief of the Foundry has tons of value for the 3 slot. Glad you noticed :D
Agree with you about Cathar's Shield. to equip instead of would be a blessing, but it still serves its purpose as a turn 1 drop.

So I loved this idea and I tweaked it into a pretty slick aggro deck.
Myself I'm running
Just played it tonight at FMN and I got in the top 4. (we didn't finish because it was getting late and most of the guys were going to Columbus for the tournament on Saturday so we spit)
Don't be discouraged over the low amount of land. You don't need a hole lot to play these low drop guys. I honestly believe this deck has a lot of potential. I played 3 control decks and 1 burn deck and I only had issues with a couple games but it was my fault and I should of Mulliganed other than that most of my matches were 2-0. Some went to game 3 but managed to pull ahead. Toll collector is a bomb in the later game when control is running out of gas.

I totally agree w/you on the 1 drop of Ulamog. I copied the deck and did that, and it just doesn't have the consistency, and smooth play you already have going. It'd be more like a greed thing. The deck you have would probably beat the one I janked up with Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger and Kozilek and Statuary most of the time. I had actually shaved one Demon, and a Cathar's Shield to cheat the ulamog in, and replaced the chief with the statuary.
