Well I can also see how Gearshift Ace can give your vehicles some pretty good combat advantage when you block with them

Well I think Gearshift Ace should be replaced with Glory-Bound Initiate

Also if you pull the trigger on Heart of Kiran you might want to also get 2 or 3 Gideon of the Trials while he is kinda cheap. I bought mine for $25 each, and I have a feeling he is going to spike again after rotation

Motys on need a ride?

Gearshift Ace -> Sram, Senior Edificer, you will run out of fuel too quick

Demolition Stomper -> Consulate Dreadnought, 6 cmc vehicle just won't work.

Chief of the Foundry -> Veteran Motorist, vehicles are big without help of the chief, veteran can crew heart of kiran + scry is always nice

Aerial Modification - just no, no, no, no. Siege modification is okay cause its 3CMC, Start Your Engines might be better choice.

How about Needle Spires?

hey Legba

currently Lupine Prototype is being tested as a way to crew most of the vehicles in the deck easily while having a decent blocker or attacker late game when hands are scarce. Barrage Tyrant is for when I can't seem to get through someone's defenses and Instead I'll just chuck a vehicle at their head. I had Gearshift Ace in this decks first couple iterations and just wasn't feeling it. I'll admit, Gideon is a bit of an after thought but tokens and his emblem make me want to give him a shot in standard before putting him back in my ally deck.

I suggest cutting a few cards that feel to me like they don't belong as much, such as Lupine Prototype, Welding Sparks, Barrage Tyrant, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. Fine cards, but they don't work your combo.

Instead, complete playsets of excellent cards such as Veteran Motorist, Siege Modification, Built to Last, and Built to Smash.

I also recommend Renegade Wheelsmith, Gearshift Ace.

Well the best vehicle right now is Heart of Kiran but holy cow man it's a $20 card.

Usually the better creatures in a vehicle deck and some of the most played are, in this order:Veteran MotoristGearshift AceDepala, Pilot Exemplar

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.

I've been playing around with a combo using Mobile Garrison , Quicksmith Rebel , Spireside Infiltrator and a bunch of Implement of Combustion.

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.
