Defiant Salvager Discussion

Deck looks great. I'd suggest removing Hanweir Garrison and adding in more Defiant Salvager or Voracious Null. You could even drop a Gonti since he's legendary. You want to be consistent and stay true to the strategy.

This deck needs Scrap Trawler like neeeeeeeds. Could run either Embraal Gear-Smasher or Ironclad Revolutionary either would be really good, Defiant Salvager is also very good. I would also run 4 copies or Marionette Master like that card is crazy in this deck. Other then that good concept, side board recs would be Release the Gremlins or Gremlin Infestation depending on budget. Other then that seems really fun and budget, good job :)

I am seeing 2 different decks lumped together.

1) Generate a lot of Servos and sac them to boost Defiant Salvager and Syndicate Trafficker. The strategy can work, but I would look for more free or cheap artifacts to sac and some way to recycle them - Perpetual Timepiece would at least get them back into your library.

2) Creature hating deathtouch deck that can build a token attack. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet would be central to this deck. Gifted Aetherborn and Yahenni, Undying Partisan give your board presence, etc. I would, however, look to add some more cheap deathtouch creatures for suicide attack/defence and throw in Flaying Tendrils, or a few more Murder. You might consider Herald of Anguish as another finisher.

I tend to agree that Liliana, the Last Hope will be just that (the last hope) and wont see too much play.

i'd replace the Night Market Guard with Defiant Salvager instead. i'm not sure what function they serve other than crew the caravan? you might consider dropping white and the caravans to make it more streamlined. with the bone splinters, yahenni can still grow. but you also have a lot more sac outlets than steal cards so you probably need to up both expertise and wrangle/hijack up to four. idk man, i'm no pro but this is kinda close to a deck i was working on.

Yahenni won't get the boost, but I can use her as a sacrifice outlet with their creature to make her indestructible, but should I replace her with another Defiant Salvager? I would take your recommendation and place the Bone Splinters as mainboard, and move the Eliminate the Competition to side board.

Looks like fun lol. Have you considered using Bone Saw and/or Cathar's Shield to use/abuse the Defiant Salvager, Quicksmith Genius and Reckless Fireweaver a bit more?

I made the following deck to try and attack the meta what do you think?Check out my newest brew: Mono Black Midrange My other decks(including some artifact fun!): NicholsGT

Do you think a Yahenni, Undying Partisan or a Defiant Salvager would be useful as well? Just so I can sacrifice creatures?

put in some Weaponcraft Enthusiast, they make you a lot of artifacts, also you probably want some way of sacrificing servo schematic, i suggest you put in Syndicate Trafficker or Defiant Salvager into your sideboard, also for removal get Grasp of Darkness.
