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.

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).

Well, my plan late game thus far has been to use tezzeret to fetch up artifacts and animate them. Tezzeret the Seeker has been working well for this, because he can -X = 0 for darksteel relic or darksteel citadel. However, due to the extra mana in his casting cost, I haven't been finding him as useful as Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas, who can just pop in and start animating objects one turn earlier, and continue digging up artifacts with his +1.

I like etched champion, especially because he dodges those pesky removal spells that hit my other guys, and will often be unblockable. The negative side to him is that I can't target him with Tezzeret the Seeker , Ensoul Artifact, or Tezzeret's Touch. Otherwise, I would definitely cut Phylactery Lich for it. I realize I can still pump him with Darksteel Axe, but that leaves me with one less target to animate. As of right now, I'm just going to pop him in the maybe board.

I will definitely try to find a way to fit my 2 Padeem, Consul of Innovation, into the main board, though, since there's no guarantee I'm looking at a turn 4 tezzeret, having only two in the deck.

Some of the cards I have come up with so far relate to actual metal songs:

Cruel Entertainment Master of PuppetsBerserkers' Onslaught Immigrant SongArchangel of Strife Peace SellsSunblast Angel Angel of Death

Also add some axes:Darksteel Axe
Obsidian Battle-Axe

Roadies:Thunder Brute

A lot of removal spells have awesome sounding song titles Rend Flesh

Also I highly recommend you to look for some 1-drops. You should also think of putting in some artifact lands and later go for Cranial Plating. It will make your flyers hit really hard! Darksteel Axe also is a great choice for you. It is a really painful target for Ensoul Artifact and if you don't have it in hand it is stil la nice update for your thopters.

If you have the money in hand, you might also want to look into the combo of Thopter Foundry and Sword of the Meek.

Thanks for your input, I took out Angelheart Vial, I will probably take out Captain's Claws if I find a good replacement. About Darksteel Axe I'm not sure, because it's a quick equipment, and +2 power isn't bad for Aurelia, the Warleader.

Grafted Exoskeleton I don't like because of the sacrifice effect and I really like Anya, Merciless Angel for multiplayer, and I like angels in generell.

Drop: 1 time draws(sign in blood, read the bones, etc), grafted exoskeleton(who is even granted infect while gaining a new way to die?!), Knight of Infamy(weak), killing wave(they will pay the life in commander nearly every time as 40 plus your goal is infect so life totals matter less!), etc

Add: boosts: you want buffs and not in dire need of evasion so think Darksteel Axe, Bonesplitter, Trusty Machete, Chitinous Cloak(menace can be nice), Hall of Triumph, etc. You also want removal! Mass removal. You're low creature so think like: Languish, Havoc Demon, Deathbringer Regent, Mutilate, etc. These can clear the way to a direct hit or just give you a grip when things seem dire. Add some reanimation: Ever After, Dread Return, Necromantic Summons, etc can give you a key creature back or let you plunder a grave for a baddie. Speaking of baddies: you need some. Think like a giant eldrazi: Bane of Bala Ged, Breaker of Armies, a demon: Reiver Demon, Kuro, Pitlord, Desecration Demon, Archfiend of Depravity, etc or even a big artifact like Colossus of Akros or a spell like In Garruk's Wake or Rise of the Dark Realms. For an edh deck you have minimal pay offs if the game goes long. You're using infect; you're going to be hated. Be prepared to time well and be careful. A few generic buffs to your guys will go a long way. And some end game stuff might aid you in actually closing a game. I kept budget in mind and I hope at least something here helps ya!
