Depala, Pilot Exemplar Discussion

Well the best vehicle right now is Heart of Kiran but holy cow man it's a $20 card.
But you can use any creature to crew. Those are just the most common because of how they boost your field or state of play.
Lots of tap for damage, untap with mobile garrison and tap for more damage then sacrifice the implement to deal more and get to draw. It isn't great and really that's about all I've got so far haha but it's just one of the ways to use vehicles.

In a vehicle deck it's better to run Depala, Pilot Exemplar and Gearshift Ace than it is to run Sram and Ariel responder. They give better boosts to your vehicles. Also while demolition stomper is cool it's not great. Maybe try out Metalwork Colossus instead.
The common "winning" vehicle deck is Mardu vehicles. And its good. Plays fast. Good beat down deck. But I prefer decks built by actual people with originality. So maybe check it out but don't copy it. Good luck to you!

Played against this quickly last night, and don't feel I got a good taste of it. Fantastic combination of cards came forward right away, with the combo of Aeronaut Admiral and Ovalchase Dragster pretty much decimating me due to having no Flying or Reach. Commander never even came out, though I'm scared to see Depala, Pilot Exemplar in action given how quickly things began to suck on my end.

Hi, there! Welcome to TappedOut and the wonderful world of Magic!
Since you're just starting out, my main suggestion would be to pick a theme and stick to it. Right now, you have a bunch of cards that fit into multiple strategies, but those cards don't necessarily all fit into the same strategy. Renegade Wheelsmith, for example, works great in a Vehicle deck, but you only have one Vehicle (Mobile Garrison). Foundry Assembler is excellent in a deck full of artifacts, but you don't have a ton of artifacts. Your Self-Assembler, for example, can only find one card in your deck, Foundry Assembler, but what do you do if you've already drawn it?
This is just my personal opinion, but I've always found Vehicle decks to be fun. Fleetwheel Cruiser, Sky Skiff, Untethered Express, and Renegade Freighter are some examples of good Vehicles, and you can use Skysovereign as your flagship card, so to speak. You'll also need creatures to crew your vehicles, though, and Veteran Motorist, Toolcraft Exemplar, Depala, Pilot Exemplar, and Gearshift Ace, as well as the aforementioned Renegade Wheelsmith would all work well. You can add Start Your Engines, Siege Modification, or more Aerial Modifications as support cards as well. Of course, this isn't the only possible strategy you could take. You can add more Self-Assemblers for your Self-Assemblers to find, or add cards like Terrarion to help Improvise your Foundry Assembler. There are a ton of possible routes you can go down, and I'm sure you'll be able to find one that fits your liking.
I hope this helps!

PartyJ, I honestly forgot he was even a card I'll have to switch to him to see how he preforms, but honestly I think he works better in a Depala, Pilot Exemplar deck as a draw engine. What I like about Kemba, Kha Regent as a commander is she pumps out creatures as well as having a big fist to smash things with

Don't worry, red/white vehicles is viable and the deck looks good. Here are a few suggestions on how to tweak it
Your land count is a bit high. Generally speaking the lower the mana curve, the less lands you need. Since you only have one 6 mana spell and the rest cost 4 or less you can probably cut a couple lands from the deck.
Sram, Senior Edificer is also pretty nice in decks with a lot of vehicles like yours.
Depala, Pilot Exemplar also would probably have a home here as her ability can hit about a third of your deck at the moment.
One thing that you might want to consider since you already have Peacewalker Colossus and Siege Modification is Consulate Dreadnought (that thing hits like a truck). This theme also works nicely with the Start Your Engines Shadow12721 mentioned

It looks promising, but I think you should put some cheaper creatures in there to crew the vehicles sooner!
It may also be good to take out some of the expensive creatures. Wispweaver Angel and Airdrop Aeronauts are fun together, but they cost a lot of mana and don't work too well with anything else in the deck. I do think Exquisite Archangel is worth keeping, though!

I typed in my suggestions on how to make this deck more competitive, but by then end, I had written about a page. You don't want to read all that, so here is a condensed version. Understand that I'm not at all trying to be rude with my comments, simply to the point. Enjoy.
Smuggler's Copter is good, run four of them. Scrap your other vehicles, they're not worth playing. Just trust me on this. Tapping all of your creatures to crew vehicles that are just going to be blown up by your opponent isn't a great game-plan.
Dwarf tribal isn't really working for this deck. Glint-Sleeve Artisan and Gearshift Ace are pretty awful in modern. Scrap the dwarf tribal plan. That doesn't mean you can't play any dwarves, but only play them if they're good enough to stand alone without help from Depala, Pilot Exemplar.
Naya zoo is a very fast deck in the format. Just look up naya zoo and you'll know what I'm talking about (not to assume that you don't already know of the deck, but I imagine that you might be somewhat new to magic, or at least competitive deckbuilding).
From that list, you can take cards like Kird Ape, Loam Lion, Goblin Guide and Wild Nacatl. Maybe even Steppe Lynx if you'll be running fetch lands. This will require you to move into green, but mana fixing in modern is pretty easy. Expensive, but easy.
So yeah, if you want to be competitive (and if you don't, that's also fine), you should maybe brew your own version of naya zoo that includes Smuggler's Copter and a bunch of 1/1 tokens to crew copter. Otherwise, copter isn't really worth playing (too slow).
Sorry for being so lengthy with my comment, hope this helps. Feel free to bounce ideas off of me if you have any questions.
