Seems like Thran Temporal Gateway might actually be hella fun in this deck! Thought about siding in some graveyard hate against pesky graveyard themed decks? Crook of Condemnation for example, or Silent Gravestone

Thanks bushido_man96, name is a fun play on words! I have been looking to optimize the deck, but running 30 lands makes this tough.

Cards that I dont mind getting rid of include: Crook of Condemnation, Fireshrieker, Grafted Exoskeleton, Honed Khopesh, Neglected Heirloom  Flip, Sharpened Pitchfork, Burnished Hart, Golden Guardian  Flip, and Pia's Revolution.

Should I focus more on storm? 0 drop artifacts? Rocks and Mana generation? Artifact bounce? Creature based reanimation?

Sorry for the double post, but you could also run grave hate cards like Relic of Progenitus, Tormod's Crypt, Crook of Condemnation, Silent Gravestone, and Leyline of the Void. Then use cards like Mindslicer, Duress, Oppression, Words of Waste, Hymn to Tourach, Painful Quandary, etc. to shred his hand and exile all of his auras. He might not like you for that though.

The meta at the moment (at least where I play) is Blue-Black Control/Midrange. You're going to be needing a lot of exile effects to get rid of the The Scarab God and the other big threats. Unfortunately, a three colour mana base in standard is pretty expensive. The Servant of the Conduits definitely help, but for one card it seems a little excessive. It would just be easier to stick with B/G. Crook of Condemnation, Naturalize and more Hour of Glorys should do the trick.

Just curious, but why do you pick Crook of Condemnation over Sentinel Totem?

Bird? <--- If it's not 'you', ignore plz.

Seems solid, and my only concern is if you'll have the on turn one to cast Toolcraft Exemplar. I'd consider that 4th Aether Hub.

Beyond that, I don't see many holes... maybe Scavenger Grounds or Crook of Condemnation to combat The Scarab God or God-Pharaoh's Gift decks... Crook would at least let you pick stuff out so you don't lose your own scroungers or phoenixes.

If you really want to be mean, you should put in Crook of Condemnation, Deadeye Tracker, Silent Gravestone, or Watchers of the Dead so you can: play Fall of the Thran, play your land drop, activate any of the above with abilities (or play the gravestone), and then watch your opponent glare angrily at you.

You might also consider maindecking the Heroic Interventions to save your lands if you have the mana up.

Sorry it's taken me so long to test this build.

I like it a lot. It's a very fresh take on Standard.

It has four main problems:

  1. Any deck that has stuff to Exile all Graveyards is problematic for it.

    You have partially addressed this by having Naturalize to take care of Crook of Condemnation.

    I would suggest you also add Field of Ruin, to stop Opponents using Scavenger Grounds. That's my personal go to for Graveyard hate.

  2. There's no real reason to put things in your Graveyard, other than to Embalm or Eternalize them. Here are some cards you could consider, so that you can interact with your Graveyard a bit more:

    Bishop of Rebirth
    Deathgorge Scavenger
    Devoted Crop-Mate
    Jadelight Ranger
    Ramunap Excavator
    Renegade Rallier
    Restoration Specialist
    Wildest Dreams

  3. You have no Draw, which means you will run out of cards to play by your mid to late game.

    You can use Gatherer to find some Draw options.

  4. You don't have much removal.

    Ixalan's Binding, and Cast Out are staples for decks at the moment.

    If you don't have ways to interact with your Opponent's plans, you run the risk that they will get their house in order, before you do.

I think the way forward for this deck is to refine, and cut back on, the Creatures you have.

Decide which ones are essential to win, and replace the rest.

You will have to be brutal, but it will result in a much stronger deck.

NB. I did test this using the playtest notes you gave.
