I figured someone would bring it up, probably should have put it in the description. Although the combo of Grand Architect+ Pili-Pala is cute, it doesn't do what the deck is trying to do. The deck is designed to play like affinity and dump its hand then win by having bigger creatures than your opponent for the first few turns then closing it out with Smuggler's Copter and/or Throne of the God-Pharaoh. It would just slow down the deck too much, and while the Walking Ballista alternate win-con is cool, I just don't think the deck can support Pili-Pala. It would almost be like putting Chromescale Drake into affinity. It sounds cool and you can have a lot of blowouts and maybe another way to win, but it is just not what the deck is trying to do.However, a different deck that plays the combo could be done, I just don't think this is the right style deck for it.
Thanks for the suggestion though, herringtonr

How is this deck affinity, when there isn't a single affinity spell ? I also don't understand the reason for Mox Opal or Springleaf since you cap out at 3 cmc. Atleast take out the Thalias for a finisher like Metalwork Colossus etc.. Ethersworn Canonist is already filling Thalias shoes. Thoughtcast is a staple in affinity I think. Since the strong point of affinity is the ramp to strong stuff through artifacts, I recommend in to looking to these and figure out what you wan't from it: Mycosynth Golem, Chromescale Drake, Myr Enforcer and Frogmite to name a few. Good luck brewing, trial and error.. Trial and error.. :)

Some more cool Affinity things are Assert Authority, maybe 1 or 2 Broodstars, Chromescale Drake, Myr Enforcer, Thoughtcast, and if your willing to drop a bit of money, Mycosynth Golem and Hangarback Walker
