Consulate Turret Discussion

Alright, this thing looks absolutely filthy. I love any infinite energy mechanic that doesn't involve Felidar Guardian. Bravo.
There's an infinite combo around Shrine of Piercing Vision in here.
If you arrive at a board state where you have an infinite untap combo up and running and a non-land way of generating mana (either Vedalken Engineer or the Grand Architect + Pili-Pala ), but do not have the Consulate Turret, you can put infinite charge counters on Shrine of Piercing Vision. This means you can tutor for anything and (most importantly) put all the other cards on the "bottom" of your library in any order, which would end up being the top if you go through your whole deck. This would also let you tutor for a clutch counterspell and instantly cast it if your board is threatened.
It's a good defensive combo to have available, particularly since you can tutor your way to going "shields up" with an Isochron Scepter + Mana Leak .

Omg, I just read the rules. They changed the rule of Consulate Turret to reflect the rule change!
That f****r is gonna get it the next time I play against him at FNM!

Hi Deltis, thanks for your comments, really good suggestions! Consulate Turret is a great suggestion that I've not noticed before. I wasn't sure if Electrostatic Pummeler had a place here as I've not got any of the pump spells that green/red decks favour with it. However, the Fabrication/Decoction/Animation module engine does seem to give you opportunity to start buffing Electrostatic Pummeler and then drop a load of energy on it that you've accrued.
I also feel that Aethersquall Ancient seems a bit of a poor late game use of all the energy but I can't think of another replacement that might use energy at that late stage. Any suggestions for sideboard would be hugely appreciated. I was thinking some more removal spells but have not built a sideboard before.

Your deck does better than it seems at first, but it has a small issue with having too much energy. I understand you want a lot of energy, but you need more ways to spend it in mid/late games. I tested this deck out a decent bit against a revolt deck I'm working on and noticed that if they got rid of your major cards, it was time to concede. More answers for opponents things could be useful as a side board.
Might I suggest Electrostatic Pummeler, Consulate Turret, and Scrapper Champion as a few more ways to use up your energy. I know that Scrapper is red, but the double strike that gets really big quickly could really help mid game against stand offs. Aethertorch Renegade could also be a nice way for extra reach mid and late game. But you would probably rather keep it just two color and not have to splash red for either of those cards.

Honestly I thought maybe building a gremlin tribal deck with artifacts, and then focusing on salivating gremlins/ravenous intruder. To power up territorial gorger, maybe we could look at that totally underplayed card, Consulate Turret ! it taps for energy, which powers up gorger, and so on.
Also, since ixalan is now a thing, it means we get access to Unclaimed Territory, (although it's mono-red), as well as vanquisher's banner to give card draw and stuff.
Maybe a gremlin aggro deck with Ravenous Intruder, Ruinous gremlin, salivating gremlins, brazen scourge, and maybe territorial gorger is the way to go? it would be a super fun deck, I think I'll try building one and see how it goes! thanks for the help on a cool deck Idea!

Consulate Turret can be a reasonably consistent way to get your energy

Updated the deck again after playing some FNM....(went 4-6)
Also added in more lands with Irrigated Farmland
I am also thinking of adding in Gideon, Martial Paragon but am a little unsure.
Now there is an additional win con with Approach of the Second Sun if it doesn't get de-spelled.
