Daretti, Scrap Savant Discussion

ticked-off-squirrel: Thanks for commenting!
Caged Sun - The deck is getting to the point where I don't really have a problem with mana, but I have a really bad problem with having enough cards in hand to actually spend mana on. I may end up adding one of these in the future depending on how the deck settles out, but I'm not sure which yet out of Caged Sun/Gauntlet of Power/Gauntlet of Might.
Metallic Mimic - I run this in all my other tribal decks, but I'm not sure it fits as well in here. Raid Bombardment does a lot of work in this deck, to the point that if I have both of my Anthem Goblins out I will sac one so that Raid Bombardment can still proc on the tokens. Since the tokens tend to get sacrificed or blow up, their actual power doesn't become that significant. In much the same tone Shared Animosity is only still in because it has virtually no drawback, and I can just set it down and ignore it.
Quest for the Goblin Lord - Same as above.
Goblin Caves - Now this is a card that I haven't thought about in a long time. This could really help all the Goblins soak up removal. The only drawback I can think of is I can't bounce around a Skullclamp, but if it was really important I could just sac the land the enchantment is on. Going to sideboard this because I really want to test it out.
Squee, Goblin Nabob - I like Squee a lot, but the only thing he really benefits me with in this deck is the discard that is tied to Tormenting Voice and Faithless Looting. I am considering putting Daretti, Scrap Savant back in, in which case it may be starting to be worth the include, but I can't see myself ever actually casting him, as 3 mana for something to sac is just too high. That means I would just hold Squee in my hand until a discard prompt came up.
KamenRiderVys: I actually ran Mana Echoes in the deck for a long time, and on average it would net me 100+ mana in any given phase. The problem was that I never actually had anything to spend it on, and it would just fizzle at the end of the phase. I don't have anything with flash, I have very, very few instants, and even when I was making 250 colorless mana on my own turn during my first main phase, I had like 3 cards in hand that had a total CMC of like 5. I eventually took it out a few iterations ago, and haven't really missed it. I moved it over to my Zada deck, that has a lot more opportunities to actually use it.
I really love Repercussion. I've knocked several people out on a turn where I would cast it and wait to see if it would be countered, and then if it wasn't I would immediately follow it up with a Blasphemous Act (with Boseiju if I need). Sac my own creatures in response and I take no damage but the rest of the table blows up. I used to use it as a finisher, but have started putting it down earlier and earlier because of all the damage sources that will whittle my opponents down, and I can choose whether I care about taking the damage or not. At worst it speeds up a game I would probably lose anyway, at best I win on that turn. People are already afraid to block tokens when Ib is out, now they let through 20 because they don't want to take 80. Works me me, haha.

I'd highly recommend: Quietus Spike, Scytheclaw and Daretti, Scrap Savant. You have too few mountains, only 3 in the 99 deck. You won't be able to cast your commander, believe me. Overall is a nice deck +1.

Thanks for all the advice, guys :)
I think it's important to note that the decks I'll be playing against aren't the fully fleshed-out versions of their commanders; for example, the Meren of Clan Nel Toth deck is currently just an upgraded precon (though he's looking to buy a Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger and Sheoldred, Whispering One soon), so I won't have to worry much about being underpowered compared to my friends.
So, as Bhaal666 mentioned, the Breya, Etherium Shaper deck has always been my pet-favorite of the three. Although I probably won't be able to get most of the landbase for a while (damn you, fetches!), most of the deck can be bought on the cheap and it has that janky-but-powerful feel I enjoy.
For Izu_Korasu, the idea behind Breya, Etherium Shaper as the commander was that she could serve as a utility piece for using your excess Myr tokens (in addition to giving me four colors). Though, now that you bring up Silas Renn, Seeker Adept & Akiri, Line-Slinger, I'm starting to reconsider. I may make the switch to those two, but I'll have to find a card to cut in the maindeck to make room for them. Any suggestions?
And yeah, Daedalus19876, I've been interested in Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons since she was spoiled, and she seems awesome (love your deck, btw!). While she's probably the best long-term investment in terms of acquiring staples and such, I currently run an upgraded Daretti, Scrap Savant deck when we play, so I could cross some of the artifacts I'm currently using between the decks. Not sure how practical that is, but it's an option I suppose.
Anyway, I'm gonna make a few revisions to the decks and mull over my options for a while. Again, thanks for all the help, I really appreciate it :)

Yea, I have the big three colorless tutors in the maybeboard. I'm going to be testing them out more extensively soon.
I like Vow of Lightning as much as Assault Suit, which is a bit, but not a whole bunch. I usually don't play pod games, but instead 1v1s. There just isn't anyone who plays EDH in my area anymore. So while they are amazing in a pod, in 1v1 I want to trick my opponent into discarding their hand into using her which doesn't do much if they can only attack me. Vow of Lightning is also an enchantment and doesn't have much recursion value like Assault Suit with Goblin Welder or Daretti, Scrap Savant. I'll definitely add it to the maybeboard and test it out.
Worldslayer is hilarious, but I can't stand the thought of not having mana. Especially if I don't have the right combo and all I can do is Traitorous Blood her for the turn, attach and swing. Then they get Hazoret and Worldslayer and I have nothing. I'mma stay away from this one for just a tid bit.
Sword of the Ages was added because it could target more than 1 creature and because I could recur it from the graveyard with Goblin Welder or Daretti, Scrap Savant in the case that I either discarded it or my opponent(s) recognized the threat and destroyed it. And this was when I had like 140+ cards so I actually had creatures with large P/T to make it viable for a one-shot-kill. I don't have much in the way for recurring Instants. Sure Shreds of Sanity could work there, and hell even my Charmbreaker Devils, but I dislike Shreds of Sanity for the inconsistencies. It would be better if it had flashback and no exiling itself. I guess the Devils could get it.... fine, you convinced me. I'll add it in and test it out. As for Repercussion, the same argument as I posted in response to Zimmers_0: She's attacking me and my creatures and I don't always have the right cards to defend, thus even blocking with a Stuffy Doll will double that damage to my face.
Fetches are here for thinning purposes as well as the Crucible of Worlds combo. I don't play mono-red much and I hate how little ramp they have, so I at least need consistent land drops.

So I like the signets and talismans because they ramp so efficiently, and to add all the on color ones:
Talisman of Dominance
Talisman of Progress
Talisman of Indulgence
I think you can add these to your 34-land count and be fine. These are great because they can be used for things like Reshape, Goblin Welder, Daretti, Scrap Savant, etc. as well as tapping for mana and ramping you.
I'm usually not sold on Trinket Mage packages unless you're fetching combo pieces, and in Breya colors, you have awesome removal. You aren't some mono color or colorless deck that's dying for Executioner's Capsule.

Delta-117: Ooh, I'll look into Geier Reach Sanitarium! I really should put in Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle as well. The rest of your suggestions are very helpful, and I think most of them will make it into my next draft, thanks!
Workman4137: Thanks for the comment! Unfortunately, I don't think I have enough targeted spells that I want to copy to my own creatures (I don't want to Lightning Bolt everything lol). But I do have a deck centered around Zada herself, if you want to take a look! :) Red Scare: Zada EDH | *PRIMER*
Phaetion: Ooh, got a list? Someone suggested that I put in more artifacts and abuse them with Daretti, Scrap Savant, Goblin Welder, etc, so I might include Staff of Nin and Mind's Eye to do that. Firestorm is in here (and an amazing card it is!) but I'll find a slot for some spellshapers :) Thanks for your comment! You're always welcome to leave a +1 if you like the deck ;)
Dredge4life: Ooh! I didn't think of lifelink with her. I could see that working pretty well. Thanks!
Zimmers_0: I know, she's hard to work with :/ On the other hand, it's oddly freeing to gleefully dump your whole hand to Nahiri's Wrath without a second thought! Haha. Thanks for the comment and upvote!

After looking at your list I came up with these suggestions you should really consider:
If you would like to see other EDH decks, you can always check the ones I play which are present on my profile page. I like to play with this deck the most of the time. An upvote is always appreciated :)
Have fun on T/O and if you ever need EDH advise, you can always summon me. Glad to help out.

Thanks a lot!
Tyrant's Familiar taps, unfortunately, and if I give vigilance to anything, that would be Kaldra.
Mycosynth Lattice is very good, but my meta will possibly gain more advantage of it than me (Breya and the like are common).
I will definetely consider Mirrorworks, that might work.
