Legendary_penguin_of_death, Refurbish is there as a backup in case anything gets countered destroyed or otherwise discarded to maintain cards in hand. It allows you to discard your artifacts IF needed to get other more useful cards in that moment and still be able to bring it back later either from that or from removal while having all the other fetch options that exist anyway in deck. Torment of Hailfire is an option and I stated that A) this is verson without it. B) Yes flyers help get the trigger to flip for tons of extra manna to keep things moving early. The version with Torment of Hailfire will be void of Refurbish and instead have the Torment of Hailfire. Other option as a mana dump in this version instead of Refurbish could be Pull from Tomorrow or maybe a beatstick creature like The Scarab God or even Herald of Anguish or Sphinx of Magosi cause a turn 3 flip of Dowsing Dagger could get really out of hand fast with a big guy out there turn 4.

sg_86 My issue with Deadeye Plunderers is that sure he CAN be a big body but if I dont have treasures I'm paying 5 mana for a 3/3 that costs 4 mana to produce a treasure. Which to be honest. Isn't that good. Also even if he is a beatstick body he doesn't have any evasion. I'd find more value in throwing Herald of Anguish back in for the flyer beatdown with discard and option to kill smaller creatures. Instead I use The Scarab God for my 5 drop cause it's a 5/5 that can keep coming back to hand that for 4 mana gets a creature on the field from either graveyard as a 4/4 and if its a treasure producer in my graveyard its now a 4/4 that makes treasure and on his own will cause loss of life and scry every turn when he brings guys back. He's just a better 5 drop.

TepigAggro, Herald of Anguish was originally in here but was replaced with The Scarab God since he can bring back my treasure producers as bigger bodies and keep my treasure production moving. Also thought about Battle at the Bridge but feel like there are better removal options. Also improvise is a marginally good mechanic in this deck. Treasures are usually out but I'm also using them to keep tempo while producing more if needed so improvise could be hit or miss in here as I found out already with Herald of Anguish

Have you considered Treasure Map  Flip? It could stabilize your deck and provide a ton of artifacts that let you draw or cast Herald of Anguish.

Whatcha think?

Herald of Anguish is actually working pretty well while fishing. His ability to sac an artifact and kill something enables revolt for stockpile and if it's a servo enables Bontu the Glorified to attack. Thanks for the advice, good synergy.

What would you reccomend droppping? I like Herald of Anguish and think 2 would be good but don't wantto disrupt the servo/sacrifice engine.

Herald of Anguish? Improvise might be nice. Not sure...

Bodyrocker89Inventors' Fair is pretty useless as we can't guarantee to have 3 artifacts on the field and +1 life each turn isnt that great. tutor for artifact is good, but we only have the monument which is legendary and Treasure Map  Flip. Herald of Anguish: improvise works great, but if we have all the artifacts to tap, i'd rather use Marionette Master as the finisher. As for Liliana, she's a versatile card, and it really depends. She's good against most midrange decks tho.
