Argy on treasures test

The other thing I was thinking is not restricting yourself to Treasures.

There are a whole heap of two drop Artifacts around at the moment, along with Servos, and Etherium Cells.

You may be able to get more value if you use Chief of the Foundry, and some of those, to give you value for running Artifacts.

you can't have 2 ponders in commander. Master Transmuter would be great Memnarch, Soul of New Phyrexia, Padeem, Consul of Innovation, Myr Retriever, Golden Guardian  Flip, Chief of the Foundry are some to think about. and even though your cmc is low you may want to add a few more lands like maybe 34.

Remember Animation Module, Decoction Module, and Fabrication Module from Kaldesh Draft?

Well, I've been messing around with an extremely janky but surprisingly powerful Module deck online ... and after the bans today, I'm excited about trying it out in irl.

Like I say in the deck description, I think the mainboard is pretty solid (though I go back-and-forth on 2x Reverse Engineer vs. 2x Opt).
But I'm not at all not sure about the sideboard ... it's not bad, but I've no idea what the optimum mix of counters/removal might be now, nor on whether I want Metallic Mimic/Foundry Inspector/Chief of the Foundry/something else ...

Thanks in advance for your thoughts and suggestions!

Hey, thanks for the suggestions! I've given the deck a once over and incorporated a lot of those. I really like Marionette Master, especially if Chief of the Foundry is already in play.

Cool deck idea! I'm running Ghalta as a Commander but instead am playing Mono-Green Dredge. I'm relying on undercosted graveyard matters creatures such as Ghoultree and Splinterfright.

Back to your deck, I'd love to see a Steel Overseer in here. A lot of your artifact creatures are small utility creatures (Myr Retriever, Chief of the Foundry, Junk Diver, etc.) and Steel Overseer would help them grow to keep Ghalta cheap. Verdurous Gearhulk is 8 power for 5 mana with 4 of that power spread across your creatures however you want and is an artifact. These +1/+1 counters work well with Arcbound Reclaimer and Hangarback Walker as well.

Prophetic Prism and Terrarion could both be swapped, in my opinion. Mycosynth Wellspring generates card advantage once it's been sacrificed and helps find Forests which seems important given your very low land count. Smuggler's Copter provides card quality and not card advantage, but seems at least worth consideration.

Buried Ruin and Phyrexia's Core both seem good here.

SketchyScribbler, throw Chief of the Foundry in and it becomes very one sided.

This inspired to try and make my own Feldon deck. Here are some other things that might be good. Wolf of Devil's Breach, Chief of the Foundry, Breaker of Armies, Artisan of Kozilek, Bomat Courier

Interesting idea... It cross my mind that you could use Oketra's Last Mercy as a sideboard against super aggro decks because you can play Approach with improvise, basically with few lands. But meh, such a bad card.

Alright!Let's focus... I just wonder how fast could a deck like this jam a overwhelming Splendor . With Servo Exhibition into Inspiring Statuary, you'll have 4 lands on turn 4 (ideally) and 3 artifacs. One short, but seems pretty fast. With Chief of the Foundry the servos would look pretty strong against all the vanilla 1/1's.

I'm trying to figure out how the deck can protect itself from Abrade or even counterspells, since you can't afford to delay Inspiring Statuary that much against powerfull decks like Remunap and Temur. Perhaps Spell Pierce as a form of protection? I'm assuming that Inspiring Statuary is the core card of the deck, so you could use some tutors like Trophy Mage and Inventors' Fair.

Looking at the treasure producers, treasure map (flip into 3 artifacts + land seems nice) and Spell Swindle seems to be the best ones here. Another one from ixalan: River's Rebuke .

Have you considered black for Tezzeret the Schemer?

The one thing I'm sure is Mechanized Production is a bad card. It's slow and easy to disrupt.

I don't even know where to start... I hope you can make it work :P
