Gonti, Lord of Luxury
Legendary Creature — Aetherborn Rogue
When Gonti, Lord of Luxury enters the battlefield, look at the top four cards of target opponent's library, exile one of them face down, then put the rest on the bottom of that library in a random order. For as long as that card remains exiled, you may look at it, you may cast it, and your may spend mana as though it were mana of any type to cast it.

Also, have you thought about Eldrazi Displacer?

No worries-- I'll be looking for updates from your deck. The energy "sprinkle" in your deck is interesting. I toyed with it for a while, but eventually gave up. However, I hadn't really thought of Bristling Hydra and its ability for hexproof. That could be useful. I'm torn, though, because I like Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and Gonti, Lord of Luxury so much that I hesitate to replace one with Bristling Hydra at the 4 position.
Cranking out more servos, though, isn't all bad, and feeding Aether Poisoner to do that is good.
Pathway Arrows, yeah, I get it. that's why they're in my sideboard. the rats are what I take out if I think I need the arrows.

What about Gonti, Lord of Luxury to steal their stuff? He works well, and against a heavy control you can steal their spells.

Lets talk some results,
FNM 1, 3-1
Match 1, 2-1 (RB Vampire Madness) solid deck build but not the best pilot driving it.
Game one on the draw loss opponent curved out very well and had a large flying board presence. i was unable to stabalize the board in time and lost on turn 5.
game 2 on the play, win, mulled to 6 but was able to get some early hand disruption and board stall with mechanic and Harsh Scrutiny into a turn 6 Fumigate the full set had been brought in that left the opponent playing off the top of their deck for the remainder of the game.
game 3 on the draw, win, another Fumigate blew out the game for me.
match 2, 0-2 (RW vehicles) excellent deck-build, very good pilot driving it.
game 1, on the play, loss, early Harsh Scrutiny and honestly almost scooped after seeing the hand. excellent curve into a pretty slow start from me.
game 2 on the play, loss, better start than game onebut never saw the boarded in hate, and was ultimatly unable to deal with Heart of Kiran
Match 3, 2-0 (monogreen marvel) semijank deck with a good pilot
game 1, win, turn four Gonti, Lord of Luxury with weird targets ended up taking Cryptolith Rite this would prove to be a good choice. was able to bounce gonti the following turn and hit ulamog, which i hard cast around turn 7.
game 2, win, displacer and a pair of wardens locked the board down until i was able to hit bigger threats and grind down the game.
match 3, 2-0 (GW humans) solid deckbuild, newer pilot
game 2, Fumigate reset on turn 5 into t6 gearhulk t7 displacer again locked down the game.
Felidar Guardian and Subjugator Angel never felt great, i got the angel out once but its lack of immediate impact felt awful and i almost always wanted it to be gonti or the gearhulk. Guardian was just unimpactful, there was one game i was displacing it to flicker Prophetic Prism for card draw but other than that rather convoluted interaction it was pretty bland. though in his defense he did soak up a lot of removal for fear of combo death.
Hidden Stockpile these never felt awful but they didnt have great game impact. they are almost only good in multiples and with limited to no card draw thats not too reliable, considering you normally want to be doing displacement on your opponents turn which does not trigger the servo creation.
Fairgrounds Warden mechanic and Gonti, Lord of Luxury were the standouts. warden always felt great both playing on turn three and drawing off the top on turn 8, and i was undervaluing mechanic who brought a lot more value than i was expecting in the early game when i needed the revolt trigger on a Fatal Push or just an early blocker. Gonti just always felt absurdly good and totally broken when you could recour his ETB.
Probably looking for angel replacements maybe something with a lower cmc

I'm interested to see what Gonti, Lord of Luxury would do for the deck. :)

Personally I think Aetherborn Marauder isn't a very good card. It just steals +1+1 counters from your other mons that can become indestructible. You're better off running Gonti, Lord of Luxury. I actually have an aetherborn deck that is different from Wedge's deck. Born of Black Aether.

Hey I was wondering if I could get some input on my Gonti, Lord of Luxury list here. After playing with for while don't think it's optimized as I think an optimized Gonti list is just another Ad Nauseam list like Sidisi. So I was trying for a bit of a different approach but I'm not sure it's working as well as I want. Any constructive criticism would be great.
