Clockwork Swarm Discussion

I'm mostly here for the latter, but I'm happy to help, too. Having a creature you don't mind being bounced would be an interesting vector - Snapcaster Mage is probably the most obvious example, but I'm not going to pretend there's any universe in which he's a "budget" choice. Something like Mulldrifter or Draining Whelk might do the trick.
The other option isn't very creative, but Delver of Secrets is bound to get results in a deck this spell-heavy. While you'd have to transform him again if he's bounced, he's only one mana so it's not a huge loss.

I went through the rest of the cards in the shoebox and made the following tweaks. With the few cards I have, it looks like I can lead toward elf tribal. I should probably post this as a new deck because it's very much different.
