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.

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.
