Some of the cards are acting strangely in the Tappedout database.

What you do is write (AKH) just before the two ] ] and you will be able to view the card as normal.

Supernatural Stamina + Fling is a very cool idea.

+1 for the 'taurs!!

I've played against Dynavolt Tower with my Vehicles and it really doesn't bother me that much. I'm faster than it. I can also grab it with the newly inserted Lay Bare the Heart.

Aetherworks Marvel I'm not too worried about, either. Oblivion Strike is there to deal with Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger and I have a bunch of other spells like Cut / Ribbons and Unlicensed Disintegration to mop up any other Creatures.

Can't say I've ever been that concerned with Walking Ballista. As with Hangarback Walker I just put pressure on and they have to block with it, or I just kill it before it gets too large. It hits me for a bit ... and I hit them for a lot more. Fling, Cut / Ribbons or Unlicensed Disintegration should take care of it.

I changed my Sideboard in response to UR Control by OAFMCNAMARA. That thing is hateful. Specific Artifact destruction is not the way to go with that, I feel. Better to have a range of hand disruption and Creature removal spells so that you can hit Torrential Gearhulk, Wandering Fumarole, or one of their annoying removal spells.

You really should practice against that deck. If people get wind of it, then that is all they will play at FNM. Seriously, Wizards has once again printed a card - Essence Scatter - that has made an archetype unstoppable, with no good answer for it - Duress.

Good stuff. Addition of Fling seems great! Any reason to run Smoldering Marsh over Sulfurous Springs?

shagg I like your suggestion. However, I do have an alternate wincon in my side board with Crackdown Construct. Wandering Fumarole + Crackdown Construct gives me a heavy hitter and add in Fling then it's game over.

Barrage Tyrant and Electrostatic Pummeler could give you another win con (or at least heavy damage) if you can work them in, would be a bit clunkier than Fling but you have to figure there will be games where you just don't draw any, and Barrage Tyrant would be a second outlet.

I really enjoy the idea of the combo, but after playtesting a few times I was mana-flooded often. Maybe consider taking out some lands in favor of maxing out the count of 0-cost artifacts you have. Again, I think the concept of this deck is really fun and silly, reminds me of the Fling and Countryside Crusher combo. Good work!

If you want to run Fling as a main win con, I think you should also work in Wandering Fumarole and Crackdown Construct. The cycling loop is a nifty concept, but it's going to be too clunky to combo reliably, requiring Flameblade Adept and New Perspectives both to be down with 7 cards in your hand, and Fling and Shadow of the Grave to come up before your cycling loop breaks to non-cyclable draws. Kefnet the Mindful will make it a little easier to keep that loop going, but you probably will only be able to use his ability once a turn if you still want to be able to cast Fling.

If you wanted to go all in Fling, you could drop some of the cycling and work in Barrage Tyrant + Electrostatic Pummeler. Glimmer of Genius, Attune with Aether, Highspire Infusion for energy/card draw/mana fixing/pump. Trophy Mage or Glint-Nest Crane are great for getting a pummeler in your hand. Or are you more interested in doing something with the cycling loop? Drake Haven or Archfiend of Ifnir would have promise then.
