@Siq6Six: Indeed, the Duplicant seems to be a great answer to Iona. It's tutorable and not so expensive if you consider you're against Iona, which is of 9 CMC. That is if you're not facing a hyperramp or Kaalia deck.
I do see the importance of the draw, especially in white, but I don't think Sram is really able to deliver in this matter. Although I am curious to see how it will go with you.
Also I am also considering putting Ethersworn Canonist in since I have a tough time dueling decks with craptons of mana and casting half their libraries at me. AND the Canonist is tutorable!

What do you think of Armory Automaton? It's not the most powerful card on its own but it looks like it could really do some mess while well-equipped. Not to mention it steals enemies' equips at least for the time of the combat step. Having the opponent have to spend mana to reequip it on his turn is also helping a lot.

Is Godsend really worth keeping? The exile is a really good thing but I found myself struggling to take anything out of this sword other than an overpaid +3/+3 on my creature.
I believe, and I wasn't a fan of it till two days ago, a Fireshrieker would do more. Having both the Shrieker and one of the Swords on one creature provides you with quite nice bonuses. I need to find a place for it in my armory though. I'm considering to take out the Sword of the Animist. How has it been working out for you?

What are your thoughts on enchantments like Duelist's Heritage or Absolute Law? Both are very rewarding and I'm being tempted to put them in but in my meta there is almost no enchantment removal so it's really safe. I'm interested in your unobscured insight though.

How many games do you play on an average evening? I found myself playing about ten every friday now which is an extremely large amount to me. That let me understand all the mechanics I use a lot more and to make my deck much better in result.

Blinkmoth Nexus would be good to maindeck along with Apostle's Blessing for unblockable or protection, if your gonna start on a side board Ethersworn Canonist looks brutal

So last friday sucked! Got half way through a game and the shop closed. Not enough people showed up to play standard, or were interested to play any other format. Night over @ 6:30. Have yet to see Sram do shit. The Statuary hasn't had a chance to shine yet either. I'm leaving them in, for now. I have yanked Treasure Keeper after some thought and Ethersworn Canonist is back.

I'm also bringing in Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker. I think it'll be an amazing piece to disincentive people from attacking me (Looking at you, Saskia). Not sure where it'll fit in yet.. Possibly Sram. Once I see how good or bad he really is. Considering I'll only have 12 or 13 pieces to make his ability matter, I wonder if thats too few. Maybe he is going to be a "Commander or bust" card.

Other changes - I'm going to pull Eldrazi Conscription and Eye of Ugin. Adding in 1 plains & most likely another equipment.

Sweet! Would you mind sending a picture of the card and the condition? And unfortunately i only have 1 path to exile (its the recent promo foil one). Lol its funny cuz i was about to List that crucible of worlds for sale here cuz i dont play modern. Buuut i guess i can trade it if thats what you're after. My wants have changed a bit as well- outside of plateau i like Ethersworn Canonist, 2 Shivan Reef, Underground River, Dictate of Kruphix, Overgrown Tomb, and Eternal Witness.

I feel sceptical about the Duplicant. It exiles a creature and can take it's X/X. Ok. But what is the chance the creature will be big enough to be a reasonable 6 mana spell? I aggree you can think of it as a 3 mana exile and a 3 2/4 creature. But who wants a blank 2/4 for 3?

Ethersworn Canonist looks really great! But doesn't it hurt you as well? Yeah, you do have a lot of artifacts but what if you NEED to cast something else twice?
I don't grasp the rockstarness of Treasure Keeper. Deck check? Knowing what you will NOT draw? Casting a random spell without paying for it? (or actually paying 4 for a blank creature to be able to cast a random spell? If the CMC could be higher I could aggree you can summon something big to help you out but with CMC 3 or less you're capped on less game-changing spells. Which are a bog part of the deck, but still -I just don't feel it.

SoWaP look really good in here. Free protection from white and red which is a pain to deal with. I think it's worth a solid consideration at least.
