March of the Machines does some outright rude stuff with Mycosynth Lattice to the tune of mass land destruction, but you would also want Chief of the Foundry and other similar effects to keep all your Moxes and lands.

Grafdigger's Cage is something I would take out since it effectively shuts off your commander's ability.

Deck looks like a blast. Only few things I can think of are that with Storm the Vault  Flip and Chief of the Foundry , you seem to have a slight "go wide" strategy and personally, assuming you're playing 4 player commander, would emphasize that a little more. Bident of Thassa and Coastal Piracy aren't artifacts, but they do draw a lot of cards when you're swarming with thopers from Thopter Foundry and other stuff that makes small dudes. Also I would take another look at the land base. I know lands can be pretty expensive which is why I never really bash people for land bases but I would highly recommend a bit more colored tap lands considering your curve isn't exactly super low. Vesuva can enter as a copy of an artifact land you already have so that you have more than one you can use with cards like Kuldotha Forgemaster . I really like the inclusion of some fun stuff like Possibility Storm , the format needs more weird stuff going on. But yea, deck looks dope and best of luck!

Hey greyninja thanks for the comments! Yeah, it's pretty tuned right now and I'm having a blast with it. I've strongly considered Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain simply for the card draw, and she's still on the table as a possibility. And Mycosynth Lattice is just bonkers when

Rite of Replication doesn't always have a specific target, as it's just a great utility piece. That said, it does have some solid targets in the deck. Blightsteel Colossus for straight nastiness, Myr Battlesphere / Sharding Sphinx for tons of tokens, Chief of the Foundry for huge buffs, either of the hellkites or Master of Etherium for combat shenanigans. Or any of our opponents' big scary things. It's just a pet card, but honestly might get cut for Urza lol.

Talisman of Creativity will definitely be going in, replacing Sky Diamond as it doesn't enter tapped. I will DEFINITELY be finding a home for Urza, Lord High Artificer as he is just stupidly good. Scrapyard Recombiner is alright, but too narrow in my opinion as it only finds Constructs. Mirrodin Besieged is certainly a fun card that plays into the deck strategy, either to make more small tokens or just outright win after a late-game Vandalblast ! But again, will be tough to find cuts.

I'll have a look at your deck in a bit, but thanks for the discussion!

Ok, you deck is alright and has a lot of potential but it looks to be going in a lot of different directions. What I think would help is if you pick which cards you are wanting to build around.

Tezzeret's Touch is a great card but it is the type of enchantment where if you want to run it you have to build the entire deck around. A deck I have made around this card has a heap of cheap evasive artifact creatures like Ornithopter , Vault Skirge and Signal Pest ; and a heap of cards with the same effect like Ensoul Artifact and Skilled Animator .

Another card you might build around is Traxos, Scourge of Kroog . His down side is he only untaps when you cast an artifact. There are a lot of zero costing artifacts that you could cast which would make this easier such as the Ornithopters but there is also Cathar's Shield and Accorder's Shield which would give Traxos vigilance so he doesn't tap when he attacks. But once that happens any of the equipment cards that you draw afterwards won't be doing anything. That is where you could have something like Sai, Master Thopterist who will make a thopter token when you cast an artifact.

If want to be a bit more mid range with Chief of the Foundry buffing your team. Some good cards that go well with that are Foundry Inspector and Etherium Sculptor which make artifacts cheaper to cast. Which would make it easier to cast something big like Myr Battlesphere . Generally the Myrs are pretty good and you might want to check them out on gatherer.

Another thing you might consider is cutting one of your colours for white. With the midrange go wide artifact strategy it might be worth considering white just for the sake of Tempered Steel , but that might be something to consider further down the track.

Also Padeem, Consul of Innovation is good.

Firstly, thanks you for your feedback.

I believe you are right about the Welding Jar and removing the 3 or 4 CMC cards. I will probably put 3x Welding Jar replacing 2 Thopter Spy Network , Chief of the Foundry , and 4x Galvanic Blast replacing 3x Chief of the Foundry , 1x Thought Scour .

I'm not sure about Pia and Kiran Nalaar . On one side, it feels great for the 2 damages activated ability. On the other side, I believe this 3 mana cost is way too expensive and small red removal are indeed better. What do you guys think ?
