i think the Dismember could be dropped for a 2nd Throne of Geth for consistency. 1 removal spell in 60 cards doesn't seem reliable anyway, and given that this is an artifact deck, Dispatch has several advantages. costs less mana/life and exiles rather than sending the creature to the yard. could probably keep it in the sideboard though and stick with pure beatdown for game 1. i'm also curious about the Chromatic Star. personally i think Solidarity of Heroes is too good to pass up in any +1/+1 counter deck. i realize you can't grab it with Ancient Stirrings, but it also cuts the effort required for an infect win with Inkmoth Nexus in half. or target Hangarback Walker in response to a removal spell to give your opponent quite the surprise.

as for the name "affinity", i've already stopped using that long ago lol. i refer to "traditional affinity" as "robots", and the hardened scales version as "hardened modular". sometimes i'll get weird looks when people hear me use these names, yet they never seem to have an answer for why I should refer to a deck by a mechanic it doesn't even use lol.

Well, my best advice is to add 4x Inkmoth Nexus which is both a land and a infect creature.

A bit pricey, but Inkmoth Nexus is perfect here.

I use Dust Bowl to sac my Blinkmoth Nexus and Inkmoth Nexus to blow up lands. It’s 4 mana to do, but once shirei is going off mana usually isn’t an issue

do you have problems with removal? id suggest Apostle's Blessing if you do. or Vines of Vastwood. if you decided on an infect tweak, Inkmoth Nexus Blighted Agent with Invigorate is beautiful. giving your opponent life means nothing if you are going for the 10 poison counter win. Im also a fan of Groundswell for the landfall trigger.

So I’ve actually run a version of this deck in the past. It’s super consistent at crushing your opponents if you get the right hand. My number one suggestion for you here is to add in some cheap counter magic. Protecting your combo needs to be your number one priority here as the whole deck falls apart and does nothing if it fails. Second, cut the non mana producing dorks. All of your non Petitioner creatures should be ramping you into Arcum. Use the freed up space for counter spells and cheap card selection to help you quickly dig for either the Petitioners or artifact creatures you need. Here’s a bunch of stuff that worked out really well in my list that I think will really help supercharge this deck:

Counter Spells

Swan Song

Dispel

Foil

Misdirection

Spell Pierce

Fodder for Arcum

Manakin

Millikin

Blinkmoth Nexus

Inkmoth Nexus

Mishra's Factory

Dread Statuary

Guardian Idol

Misc

Elixir of Immortality - in case you get hit with the dreaded board wipe

Sol Ring, Fellwar Stone, and the rest of the 2 CMC mana rock ramp suite. Ramping into Arcum by turn 3 to go off on turn 4 is super important in this deck’s consistency. You don’t want to give your opponents any extra time to draw answers to your combo, because you’re going to be archenemy every single time you pull out this deck. You’ve just gotta commit to it try to win before the rest of the table can remove you.
