Darth_Savage on aetherborn-artifact deck

Hi hedgehog_henry,

Your deck is drawing almost exclusively from the standard card pool, but with the modern pool there are some cards which are direct upgrades. For example you have Workshop Assistant but Myr Retriever does the same thing and costs less to play. Another example would be Foundry Assembler, in a mono black deck with just swamps, why not play Dross Golem instead?

Your deck also seems to want to do two things, be Aetherborn tribal and be an artifact deck, that sort of schism tends to result in a less optimal deck. Which brings me to my next point, you aren't running 4x of any of your cards, not even an all star like Gifted Aetherborn, this means your deck will have little or no consistency over several games.

If you were wanting to go the black artifact route then; Vault Skirge, Phylactery Lich and possibly Scrapheap Scrounger, Glaze Fiend or Painsmith alongside Chief of the Foundry Ornithopter and Foundry Inspector this would give a reasonable artifact based aggro structure.

If on the other-hand you really want to do Aetherborn tribal then; Midnight Entourage, Adaptive Automaton, Weaponcraft Enthusiast and possibly Defiant Salvager and Flayer Husk alongside Aetherborn Marauder and Gifted Aetherborn, this is probably more mid-range than aggro, but it would be a start.

My last point is on removal, if a removal spell costs more than it isn't really viable. In mono-black on a budget use Victim of Night, Smother or Grasp of Darkness and if your not on a budget Fatal Push.

I hope that is of some help, have fun brewing your deck.

I think Dark Ritual is only like 50 cents. It's just the printing that is expensive. Also I would advise adding a Dross Golem. It just seems pretty good in mono black.

I came here looking for ways to exploit Draco, you did not disappoint.

Big fatties want any ramp? Soldevi Adnate works like a better Priest of Yawgmoth IMO, but i feel either would work pretty good in your build. I like to roll them off of things like Dross Golem or Cathodion but that might be too niche to fit in here. Bringer of the Black Dawn can be a contender for a fattie slot too.
