Speed it up more with Chief Engineer

You need the artifacts to ramp and keep up.

Remove:

Porcelain Legionnaire he doesn't do anything for you in this list

Chief Engineer: you aren't playing enough artifcats

Puresteel Paladin: again, not enough to utilize him

Stonehewer Giant: ditto

Trinket Mage: ditto

Steel Hellkite: you have better options in what I gave you

Wall of Denial: eh.

Skullclamp: I don't even know if this is legal, keep it if you add elspeth and other stuff that will allow you to utilize it

Cloudshift: kind of meh

ManaDrain: CAN YOU SRSLY AFFORD THIS--replace with Counterspell

Mana Leak: TERRIBLE IN EDH use Cryptic Command/Counterspell

Safe Passage: Maybe use Declaration in Stone or Cyclonic Rift I am drawing blanks on cards that would achieve the same but are a bit more diverse.

Path to Exile: Swords to Plowsharesm POE is not as good in edh

War Report: drop it--Swan Song

Gitaxian Probe: Brainstorm

Survival Cache: not as good

These are the one's staring me in the face

Hey! Thanks for the Feedback! Since you do want the Midrange/Aggro path, i would suggest taking a few Muddle the Mixtures out, it's not bad in any way, i just feel that it is very Slow for your ''Resolving big creatures on the board'' strat.

cards to consider

Chief Engineer- Helps casting Superion a bit more reliably than Sculptor.

Master of Etherium- Easily casted with Heartless Summoning or Grand Architect helps the Whole Board.

Lodestone Golem/Solemn Simulacrum/Filigree Familiar:great game stallers. Can give you advantage and/or Lock the opponent. Lodestone + Metamorph is Brutal in certain games.

The Tutor Mages:

Trinket Mage: Fenomenal toolbox card, could tutor some nice 1-of artifacts Brittle Effigy, Nihil Spellbomb or Aether Spellbomb,Engineered Explosives.

Treasure Mage: Tutors Wurmcoil Engine, Mindslaver, Sundering Titan

Trophy Mage: Vedalken Shackles, Ensnaring Bridge

Thanks for the deck props, Teufell!

Do only Kor have that kind of synergy? Nope! There's a lot of really fun 'tribal' decks. Most competitive are Faeries, Elves and Merfolk, but there are a lot of solid tribes. Flavorful and fun!

Synergy specifically with artifacts? Ehh, not that seem as strong in Equipment specifically. Cats, maybe... Kemba, Kha Regent, Leonin Den-Guard, Sunspear Shikari... Soldiers make a strong case... Weapons Trainer, Steelshaper Apprentice (and some of these overlap tribes)

For just artifacts, Vedalken come to mind Chief Engineer, Dispersal Technician, Etherium Sculptor, Grand Architect, Master of Etherium to name a few, but I haven't seen anything 'competitive' from a tribal standpoint... maybe I should try that... Could be a fun challenge.

Chief Engineer gives your artifact spells Convoke, which is like Improvise, but with creatures being tapped instead.

Notes: Maybe look at the set Aether Revolt since it added value to artifacts.

Have you thought of Chief Engineer. I know it's not flashy, but it might help get your Walking Ballistas and Hangarback Walkers off to a larger, faster start.
