Glint-Sleeve Siphoner Discussion

I have been testing something similar; I would suggest trying out Glint-Sleeve Siphoner she provides some good card advantage and a 2/1 menace is fine on its own.

List looks good overall, few little things that should be changed if you can afford to.
Run Dark Confidant over Glint-Sleeve Siphoner, it's the more powerful version of the effect and in modern you want the most powerful version of any given effect unless the weaker version has synergy. Potentially cut altogether?
I understand you're taking a different direction that regular Nahiri builds, but running a 1-of Emrakul, the Aeons Torn is kind of a must, as a way to make Nahiri's ultimate a win, and if you draw it you just pitch it to her +2.
The interaction between Lingering Souls and Liliana of the Veil is so powerful, and each card is so powerful on its own, that you really want to be running closer to 4 copies of each, I feel like the deck will perform much better overall the more copies of these cards that you run.
Fatal Push, Path to Exile and Lightning Bolt are amazing, and Kolaghan's Command has a lot of utility, but overall you have too much removal. In most matchups this won't be an issue, but against combo decks that don't run creatures or even just have a low creature count, you're going to need to sideboard them out. Decks like junk and jund run 10-12 removal spells and have trouble sideboarding against those decks.

There is a bit of a problem using Aether Hub with the current build. A lot of the cards require double costs meaning that the hub could slow you down if you do not draw the Glint-Sleeve Siphoner to help energize them, but this takes away from the goal of using the Siphoner to help you draw. I would advise against using the Hubs unless you add more energy sources to the deck or cut back on the number of double costs.

My first two prereleases all I got was a promo Glint-Sleeve Siphoner and a Mechanized Production and then a Planar Bridge in a prize pack despite going 1-2, then the second prerelease I got a promo Aethersphere Harvester, and I went sadly 1-2 as my deck didn't turn out all that great, but I did manage to get a Disallow from a prize pack, the third prerelease I got a Verdurous Gearhulk,Dovin Baan, a second Mechanized Production, plus an Oath of Ajani, and another Aethersphere Harvester. I went 2-1 this time and just opened a Greenbelt Rampager and a Lifecrafter's Bestiary. I was hoping for a few Baral, Chief of Compliance's, Tezzeret the Schemer, or Ajani Unyielding's but I will just have too trade for those it seems.
I seen 4 masterpieces opened, a Sword of Feast and Famine at a 2pm prerelease, then someone else opened a Trinisphere at the midnight prerelease, followed by a Defense Grid and foil Fatal Push at a second prerelease later that day at 6pm! There was also a Steel Overseer at the 6pm event.

Instead of Aether Poisoner I would play Glint-Sleeve Siphoner, Don't worry about attacking she has menace and will get through with damage, but that's not the case, the fact is she gives you 1 energy every time you attack, and when and if you have 2 energy, at any giving time you can pay those 2 energy and draw a card. Vote +1 for nice deck idea :D

Medium Creature (4-5 CMC): Maverick Thopterist
Big Creature (6+ CMC): Herald of Anguish
Sorcery: Yahenni's Expertise
Enchantment: Consulate Crackdown
Artifact: Aethersphere Harvester
Flex Common: Decommission
Flex Uncommon: Winding Constrictor
Flex Rare/Mythic: Tezzeret the Schemer
Yeah there was nothing good for the medium creature slot, lol. I'm also doubtful on the big creature slot. Aetherwind Basker was the only other one I could and would consider. I see Felidar Guardian being the best pick for 4-5 CMC, but it was excluded, thus leaving us with Maverick Thopterist. I chose it above Midnight Entourage, at least. There were a lot of flex spot rare/mythics I wanted to pick, namely Glint-Sleeve Siphoner, and Greenbelt Rampager.
At least I didn't go all-in on a strategy this time. The bannings will make things interesting as well.
