Hey, consider Rakdos instead of Selesnya this gives you red for 4x Bomat Courier's ability and black to reanimate 4x Scrounger. 4x Unlicensed Disintegration is a still a big reason to be playing artifacts. With red 4x Inventor's Apprentice can replace Toolcraft. and 2x Flagship can replace Verdurous.

Dragonskull Summit, Canyon Slough or Cinder Barrens and Spire for dual lands, more Mountains than Swamps because of Apprentice. Don't need to play as much Hub this way seeing how there's no other way to make energy, 2x Hub is safer.

Good luck with your deck.

Good effort on the deck. Some ideas: I kind of feel like you need more 4 ofs to make the deck more consistent if you want to get aggressive, but this is difficult due to the legendary rule. Hence, is your deck aiming to win quickly by beating down with Champion of the flame, Serra Disciple, Cartouche of zeal and Frenzied rage - maybe add Inventor's Apprentice and Toolcraft Exemplar? - or is it more midrange and grindy with Sram, Blackblade and Tragic poet (who i would cut or move to the sideboard - Restoration Specialist might be more consistent than poet or Tiana). Overall I think the cards available look more midrange, so maybe add Seal Away or Thopter Arrest. Consider cutting Squee who even though is hard to kill offers poor synergies (other than being a legend). Consider Board the Weatherlight for card selection/draw. Teshar, Ancestor’s Apostle fulfills a similar role. For your sideboard consider Cataclysmic Gearhulk as you should be able to get good value leaving behind one of each type whilst your opponent will not. Also, Sanctum Spirit might have a role somewhere? Good luck!

where is Inventor's Apprentice in the deck

Night Market Lookout should be a 4 of, so should Scrapheap Scrounger and Weldfast Engineer Inventor's Apprentice. Cut it back to 22 lands, aggressive decks can run a little less. Bump it up to 4 Unlicensed Disintegration and Built to Smash. Get 4 Fleetwheel Cruiser and run them in place of the other vehicles you have 2 of each of. Then replace the last 2 artifacts with Skysovereign, Consul Flagship. Pia Nalaar would be good in here too. Also add one more solid piece of removal, Never / Return and Hour of Glory are a little more budget friendly than Fatal Push and Vraska's Contempt, Lightning Strike and Abrade are really good too. Trim it down to 60 cards using 4 of each of the cards I mentioned other than the sky sovereigns and the deck will be pretty consistent. Sideboard should be like 3 each of Sentinel Totem Duress Lay Bare the Heart By Force and Shock. This deck should be super fast this way, and it will help that you curve is lower, the only other upgrade would be to replace Untethered Express with Aethersphere Harvester or Heart of Kiran. Hope it works well for you.

I've added Tidy Conclusion to punish my opponent by gaining life. Inventor's Apprentice is great, because turn one, mountain, turn two, Animation Module Pay 1 to get two creatures on turn two, a 1/1 and a 2/3 Underhanded Designs is also good, because if I have spare mana, I can cast it, make my opponent lose 1 life and I gain one life. Thanks for the tips though!

RDW has only gotten better. If you run Dragonskulls for Scroungers ability, you can use Inventor's Apprentice as a great 1 drop.

As for this deck, Im not too sure about your choice with Ammit Eternal but if youre gonna use him you might as well go all in and include Consuming Fervor for some high-power shenanigans.

The effort to keep this Standard worthy is on. Half the deck rotated, so we can no longer utilize madness. Still keeping on the Fast and Furious theme (maybe I should change the name and add vehicles, lol). In all seriousness though, need some help figuring out where to go with it.

So Far:

Inventor's Apprentice replaced Insolent Neonate

Lathnu Hellion replaced Incorrigible Youths

All other rotated cards still need similar replacements. As always, thanks for your continued interest and support.
