Contraband Kingpin Discussion
21 hours ago
Contraband Kingpin is the primary tool I am using to help dig for The Antiquities War. I see Artificer's Assistant being used in more combo-y Blue/Red or Mono Blue builds that want to storm off. Because this deck is Blue/Black, Contraband Kingpin is in addition to being a digging tool, is a solid body that slows down aggro decks.
Vraska's Contempt is strictly better than Doomfall at the moment, and unless we have a bunch of decks that require answers to hexproof I believe I am going to roll with contempt. In terms of hand disruption, post side-board against the decks that I would want it I have Duress.
Thank you for your suggestions, I am going to do some testing with Artificer's Assistant in a slightly different build that wants to go off much faster, but I am going to leave this deck in its current state for testing

Pros:-Could run some Torment of Hailfire
Cons:-Tezzeret the Schemer is pretty mediocre, especially in a deck with few early artifacts (unlike Improvise)-Zahid, Djinn of the Lamp is a suburb blocker and backup win con-Fatal Push, Moment of Craving, Battle at the Bridge and Contraband Kingpin are fairly efficient at holding aggro decks at bay
Looking at the decklist is pretty constructive before commenting on a deck :)

B0effe I put Arcane Adaptation in so if I cant find a combo peice, or behind on mana, the Contraband Kingpin and possibly other Grand Architects can tap for mana, letting me cast a Herald of Anguish or other cards in my hand, also letting me scry through kingpins ability

Really like the use of Phage and Sun Quan. Cobbled Wings, Blight Keeper, and Contraband Kingpin don't seem that efficient. Another card you could try that makes your ninja bigger like Sai of the Shinobi is Ambuscade Shaman. You could also try Sword of the Animist for more ramp.
I made a Vela deck that features ninja and Eldrazi instead of pirates. Do check it out if that sounds interesting.

Maybe Etherium Sculptor or Chief Engineer? It wouldn't hurt to have more redundancy for ramp. Contraband Kingpin and Omenspeaker are almost card draw if you need it, but card draw is bad in Modern anyways.
I still highly recommend you make room for 1 Relic of Progenitus. Currently in Modern it just says you win the game against many top decks (see Storm, Dredge, and to some extent Counters Company, Death's Shadow, and Abzan) since you have 2 ways to tutor. More importantly, against all other decks it just says pay to cycle.

multimedia tnx for the suggestions. Actually, i have considered Metalspinner's Puzzleknot in the past during early release of Aether Revolt. Maybe ill try playing it again and see how it goes. In regards to Bontu's Last Reckoning, i agree its a better boardwipe, apparently i dont own any yet.Anyways, last time i played, i noticed that Contraband Kingpin sometimes becomes a dead card for me also with Treasure Map Flip. As the game turns, it seems, i have other better options to use mana, rather than mega-ramping on artifacts on early game. Will be testing your suggestions. I'll update you on the progress. Tnx again.
