Ghirapur AEther Grid Discussion

This looks like a great budget contender for people that want to get into edh but have mostly standard cards--such as my SO, for whom I'll be building a deck. Something that piqued my interest for this deck was Ghirapur AEther Grid -- tap your clues to deal damage to your enrage dinos?

On the Budget affinity I will add Cranial Plating to 4 and Ghirapur AEther Grid seems like a nice addition to the sidedeck. I did consider Blinkmoth Nexus but it is still a bit too much for my low budget since a play set of those ($20) is over half my entire budget for a deck. Tempered Steel also seems like a very neet adition. I had seen it but wasn't sure about it. I will try running 2 of them (my budget limits me here again) and if it does works I will try saving up a little bit for a playset.
Regarding everything else. I gotta say this hurt me hard u.u . Although the Infect deck might be dead due to Fatal Push, I have to say am still a sucker for it and it is really fun when am killing my friends on turn 2 and there faces seen simpy confused.
Path to Exile is a staple which I love but can't afford. Am looking for other options like Oust, Condemn, Sunlance, Reciprocate, Gaze of Justice or even Swords to Plowshares. Icatian Javelineers is a card which I saw in some Soldier decks but might be better just going for Thraben Inspector as a solid 1 drop.
Finally on the Pseudoaristocrats deck I moved up the number of drainers and am trying to make it more of a 2/4 balance than 3 of each. Am still figuring out how to make it work out but am sure I am on track. It is a shame Fatal Push is so expensive or I will be running 4 as a no brainer.

I will second the comment about running 4x Cranial Plating. Also, a good sideboard card you should consider is Ghirapur AEther Grid. Blinkmoth Nexus has come down in price, so you could consider some of those depending on your budget.

Ok...here's a few more ideas...if you go full 4 of Ongoing Investigation, then add in 4 Whirler Rogue. He comes with 2 extra bodies, potentially 3 Clue tokens each attack eventually guaranteed clue tokens by making things unblockable. Also, to consider Lodestone Myr, and Broodstar or Qumulox.
Then, I remembered Precursor Golem, who copies a spell for each golem, and could quickly get a lot of clue tokens with Confront the Unknown or Jace's Scrutiny. This can go bonkers when paired with Mechanized Production, because the way its worded, it doesn't even need to be attached to the artifact that causes you to win. So, put it on a Precursor Golem, upkeep makes a second Precursor Golem, then cast something like Survive the Night, copy it twice for each Golem, a total of 12 Clue tokens; win on upkeep because of Clues.
I know a whole bunch of Clue tokens with Ghirapur AEther Grid could take over a game. When thinking of other things clue tokens can do, I thought Throne of Geth is one of the more unique effects that sacrifices artifacts, and having lots of proliferation of poison/loyalty/energy counters would make it interesting. But, I realized this is likely too slow.
I also thought of Clock of Omens, but I don't know what artifact you'd want to be untapping repeatedly in a turn.
Anyway...I'm just brainstorming.

When you are running only 5 creatures with activated abilities that require tapping and only about 3 others that you would want to attack with, Anger seems underwhelming. Goblin Sharpshooter might be playable (though I think it falls below that threshold), but the other combo pieces are just bad.
At the risk of suggesting too many nonbasic lands, Phyrexia's Core has a fair amount of utility.
Scarecrone is a card that might be worth playing.
How has Mox Opal performed for you? I've been testing it for a while, and it hasn't been quite as good as I'd hoped.
From my experience with Daretti, I would recommend keeping an eye on The Chain Veil. I kept encountering boardstates where I just wanted to discard it and never bother bringing it back.

Interesting deck choices. What made you decide on Dispel over Silence and Swan Song? Also, what do you use Angel's Grace for? Is it to buy you a turn against creature decks, or is it to beat a damage combo like Scapeshift or Ad Nauseum? I'd also like to recommend Ghirapur AEther Grid, which can act as another win con while also acting as repeatable creature removal that can utilize your artifacts under Stony Silence. I've had a lot of success with it.
