Darksteel Citadel is a good call. I don 't care for Wild Slash , i won't have many big creatures. Spite of Mogis fits better i think. Bomat Courier seems nice at first, but i'm not expecting to be very agro and he's going to lose his ability to rebuild my hand come turn 3 at the latest. and i'm not sure what i'd take out to add him. the Ghostfire Blade is tempting to protect the Kaboomist from himself, but that would be its only purpose.

I'd gone Izzet specifically so i could get Trail of Evidence and make Saheeli easier to cast. but i really like that devil... probably going to copy this deck and build it around that change and compare.

Ghostfire Blade , Darksteel Citadel , Bomat Courier are all good artifacts. The Citadel is an easy additional artifact and the courier is a pseudo card draw engine.

If you are looking to get a large amount of instant/sorcery triggers, low cost removal like Wild Slash would be a good idea.

If you are willing to look at Rakdos Mayhem Devil could be a fun alternate win con by saccing your massive number of clues.

Another place to look would be Throne of Eldrane (newest set) for red cards that produce food. I'm not familiar with the set, so I don't have any immediate help.

I really like this idea. I've been so focused on having a deck that holds its own first that my experimentation has taken a back seat.

Yes, that's right. Ensoul Artifact changes Ornithopter 's base P/T to 5/5 and then the +2/+2 bonus from Ghostfire Blade is applied on top of that.

I have an Ornithopter on the field which is Equipped with Ghostfire Blade

If I cast Ensoul Artifact targetting the Ornithopter , do I now have a 7/7 Flying Artifact?

Bone Saw might actually be worth considering over Ghostfire Blade due to it being another 0 cost artifact.

Thanks rjphilla :)

While I agree those cards are all great, I really can't afford to add anything that isn't an artifact.

For each time a card like Galvanic Blast is good, there are gonna be 3 times where it's preventing my gameplan.

Ghostfire Blade is interesting though. The problem is, of course, that I have to have mana to use it. Maybe if I made my mana producers 4-ofs, it could work. And that's definitely something to consider. I might test that out some time.

This deck is awesome! Literally "drew" 100 hands and it's very consistent. Mox Opal is on point. I might add a few more lands for either blue or red. Galvanic Blast is too good and Ensoul Artifact too spicy. Maybe add Ghostfire Blade too

Since you seem to be going the Voltron route I'll suggest an incredibly unsuspecting, yet absolutely dumb card for you: Blackblade Reforged . This card scales HARD in the mid-late game, and since you're going to be equipping it to Traxos 99% of the time it'll cost 3 generic mana to equip. As for what you would cut... Ghostfire Blade ? Piston Sledge ? I don't know. That's up to you. But, yeah, thought I would just drop some knowledge for you.
