Oki. Just noticed you run Gold Myr instead of Silver Myr. That's gotta be a mistake.

Also, Darksteel Citadel could help with the combo :)

I'd also like to point out that drawing 7 cards with him in a mill deck where you run things such as Sphinx's Tutelage is absolutely devastating.

Most Modern decks run 2 - 3 colors. Rare exceptions are things such as Elves and Burn which are mono-colors and 5C Humans. There are nearly no 4C Modern decks because the balancing is not worth the deck potential, though they can be made with enough effort. The real problem here isn't that 4C isn't powerful, it's that the manafixing is absurd. 5C Humans, I've seen go for literally $1,300 - well out of the budget for I'd say 90% of MTG players. My most expensive Modern deck is $340 and I bought damaged cards and foreign cards to help reduce the cost - and that thing took me two weeks of overtime to save up for with enough cushion set aside to ensure bills can still be paid on time.

As a quick example, I'm going to grab a Modern deck I have and do a casual playthrough on what would happen with just a Sphinx's Tutelage and Griselbrand.

Alright, let's give you the benefit of the doubt and say I am running my Rakdos Minotaur deck. This thing packs a serious punch and is all about dropping Instant-speed kill spells while building up a Minotaur Tribal wall of death before I swing in for 160+ damage with just 4 - 5 creatures.

I'm going to draw my hand, and skip on over to T4. This gives you time to get a Sphinx's Tutelage out without ramp, somehow have landed Griselbrand in your graveyard, and cast yourself a Goryo's Vengeance to bring him out on your 4th turn.

So I draw 7 cards, I'll go first, and draw three more as my turns come and go. This leaves 50 cards left in my library.

Let's see what happens when you draw 7 with Sphinx's Tutelage on the field.

Okay, so that wasn't so bad on my end. So suppose you pay 7 more life, draw 7 more cards, and put me through this 7 more times.

So you milled me for a total of 32 cards. You would have paid 14 life, but remember you could swing for 7 damage since he has Haste via Goryo's Vengeance and pay it AGAIN, so let's make me go through this one last time and see where I'm left off at. Remember, I had 10 cards accounted for between my opening hand and my three draw steps. So I only have 18 cards left in my library. So you pay 7 more life and we go through this whole sha-bang one more time.

You pass the turn and I lose.

T4 Mill. Set up right, you can do it T3.

If you insist on running Ensoul Artifact you probably should be running Darksteel Citadel as well.

Seat of the Synod is banned. You can run Darksteel Citadel

cool deck i suggest Vault Skirge, and Ensoul Artifact it combos amazingly with Darksteel Citadel , and Dispatch because its basically a better version of Path to Exile

É mais facil dizer o que deixava no deck: Brass Squire se jogas varios equipamentos mete mais um ou dois, Kuldotha Forgemaster, Myr Retriever, Phyrexian Revoker, Platinum Angel, Psychosis Crawler se nao tiveres muito draw nao vale a pena, até porque tu queres jogar coisas e portanto a mao nao vai ter muitas cartas e a criatura fica fraca, Signal Pest, Spire Serpent nao metas 4, mete pai 2, Fangren Marauder tambem mete pai 2, Memnite, Ornithopter, Gust-Skimmer é ok quando equipas merdas mas tens melhores early drops, Darksteel Forge, Darksteel Plate, Flayer Husk percebo a ideia mas ve la se nao tens outros equipamentos tipo Bonesplitter ou assim, se bem que o Living Weapon é bue OP, Strandwalker um pouco caro mas o equipamento nao é mau, Sword of Vengeance, Pennon Blade, Mirran Mettle isto ate podes meter mais

de resto aconselho:

Darksteel Citadel, Seat of the Synod, Tree of Tales, Silver Myr, Copper Myr, Counterspell, estas cenas deves ter, depois arranja outras criaturas com mais valor, e spells tambem como já tinha dito. Principalmente removal ou protecçao para as tuas merdas. Atençao a mana curve, deves meter pelo menos 22 terrenos, talvez 23 ou 24 consoante os teus custos. Ve tambem se nao tens mais copias das coisas boas, senao o deck fica inconsistente.

I used to play a budget artifact deck. Ensoul Artifact is a super fun card that can be a 5/5 turn 2. Put on Darksteel Citadel can be even more fun.

Fisrt of all, what's your budget?

Then, I'd suggest 4x of Mox Opal since you want to be as fast as you can

I'd also suggest Darksteel Citadel (if youadd the opal) and Inventors' Fair

And, since you have already Anguished Unmaking and tons of counters, I'd suggest to put Fatal Push instead of Go for the Throat to kill small things

I'd also suggest the fetch lands
