Darksteel Axe Discussion

Ok, so modern. Mechanized Production is a hilarious choice for this deck, and a fabulous win condition. Rather than basing it on 'servo' tokens, why not 'clue' or 'golem' tokens? It would provide more card draw and the spells to achieve this have a lower cost, allowing for more early game interaction. Golem Foundry/Blade Splicer, Genesis Chamber/Master's Call Hangarback Walker and the Thopter Foundry/Sword of the Meek combo, Ongoing Investigation/Trail of Evidence/Ulvenwald Mysteries etc.Other options are practical artifacts to copy that take the game over- Isochron Scepter is an interesting one, making low cost spells in your hand all repeatable over time, Orbs of Warding providing an ever growing pillow fort, or even just the efficient Solemn Simulacrum for extra lands, blockers and cards.

Personally, I'd reccomend fog effects and populate effects Druid's Deliverance/Rootborn Defenses, Sundering Growth Wayfaring Temple/ Growing Ranks provide options, and a larger token creature like those from Voice of Resurgence could provide a competing board presence, with Beast Within providing a dual backup tokens and hard removal. If prepared to play a longer game Darksteel Axe would dodge everything bar Anguished Unmaking although the enchantment would likely still be hit. Mirrorworks or Prototype Portal are also interesting.

Howling Mine, Temple Bell and Fog for a fogwall deck are very tempting turbofog variant, and Time Walk will abuse this heavily.

Good luck making it tick.

Got a Darksteel Axe in there already. Does something at least.

Leonin Scimitar was just the first thing that popped into my head, is all. Darksteel Axe is probably a better choice, since toughness boosts aren't as important to your unblockable creatures.

Pernicious_Dude thank you! What is your opinion about Darksteel Axe instead of Leonin Scimitar?

Although it might be worth a try to main-board 3x or 4x Yahenni's Expertise and put in more Darksteel Relic (or even 4x Darksteel Axe instead, so you could have an animated axe wielding an axe...)

Yahenni's Expertise lets you clear the board, and cast either Tezz's Touch or Ensoul for free, and then you swing.

Made all the better by the fact that your artifacts are already out of the range of Expertise's -3/-3.

Might be worth splashing Red for Goblin Gaveleer and Bloodshot Trainee. Also, Piston Sledge is a good piece of equipment, replace Spidersilk Net and Accorder's Shield with it. Also also, Bonesplitter is really good, significantly more so than Bone Saw, so I'd go down 3 Bone Saw, and up 2 Bonesplitter and 1 Darksteel Axe.

Darksteel Axe, Rogue's Passage,Stoneforge Mystic both are nice cards

May I recommend 2x of Mox Opal? With Darksteel Citadel, Darksteel Relic, Vault Skirge, and Darksteel Axe, you should be able to have a near consistent T2, if not T1, Mox that's online. That would lend heavily to getting your 3 and 4 drops out on T2 or T3 and still have some mana left over after animating Citadel or the Opal (if it comes to it).

I don't play modern so please take my suggestion with a grain of salt. However, I'll definitely stick and watch this deck. I might buy it myself if I end up liking the changes you make (once you feel it's settled).
