Yeah all those seem awesome but I think that would make it a whole different deck, I would have to start cutting Thopter makers. Chief of the Foundry could be sweet though!

I built a Tezzerator deck on here that does the Darksteel Citadel + Ensoul Artifact.

I just realised you don't have Ensoul Artifact, or Darksteel Citadel.

Ensoul Artifact + Ornithopter gives you a 5/5 flier on Turn 2.

Darksteel Citadel + Ensoul Artifact gives you a 5/5 Indestructible Creature on Turn 2.

Add Ghostfire Blade to either of those, and things get impossible for your Opponent.

Then, if you also add Chief of the Foundry, that is even worse. It also turns Ornithopter on.

Foundry Inspector makes trouble hit the board even earlier.

You just dont want to understand what i was trying to say, so let's just forget about that.

The match up between my and your deck is clearly in your favor, that's correct. But that's just how it is with every creature based deck VS removal heavy deck. Please be so considerate as to incorporate not only the cards you play in your deck to conclude your jugdement about card choices i made. That's called tunnel vision (retaliation incoming, calling it now).I dont think it's fair to say that Hangarback Walker or Ensoul Artifact plus any artifact have no value in a shell such as this one, based on matches against your deck alone.

You do have a point though with Thopter Spy Network making a good addition to the deck, i'll test out how to incorporate it best!

I also thought about flipping the numbers on Chart a Course and Shrapnel Blast or getting rid of red completely and go Cast Out instead, though i dont like the 4 CMC on Cast Out. If i do this im pretty sure i have to up the land count.

Interesting that you mentioned the mana base, because that was always the least of my concerns. I rarely had problems getting screwed and while i have to agree with you, that it is inconvenient that i can't fetch for red sources, i never had problems turning Spire of Industry on, or having trouble with finding red. Perhaps an additional Spirebluff Canal would suffice.

I'm not sold on the double color requirement on Disallow and love me some Improvise Mana Leak's, but i'll give it a test run.

Thank you for taking the time!

For modern, something along the lines of affinity or maybe Ensoul Artifact. For a while, Blue/Black artifact decks using Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas worked well. Mana Leak Can replace Counterspell. Definitely need to bring down the mana cost of the deck though.

ersatz_olorin Thanks for the suggestions! I will likely pass on them tho for the following reasons:

Thanks for the luck!

Ensoul Artifact, Toymaker, or March of the Machines is another way to turn Teferi into a creature through your combo and Darksteel Forge would make him indestructible. Good luck meme-ing your opponents to death.

Tyrant-Thanatos on Tezz Schemer and Silas Renn

Yeah, Tezz doesn't overwrite any of the target's abilities. Silas Renn would still have his Deathtouch and triggered ability. Similarly, Darksteel Ingot would still be indestructible and be able to tap for mana, etc. Darksteel Relic is a popular choice for effects like this and Ensoul Artifact for exactly this reason, it's free to drop, and retains its indestructibility when animated.

I know this is a couple years late, but if you were looking to splash green in this deck Kaladesh gave us lots of new options to play with. Lifecraft Awakening is honestly better than Ensoul Artifact in my opinion as you can cast it at Instant speed and also use it on Artifact Creatures. The only downside is that it doesn't work so well with vehicles, but it is a solid addition to almost any Thopter deck. Also great with Tron and Ramp.
