Inventor's Goggles Discussion
1 month ago
S h 1 T, totally missed the improvise on Reverse Engineer. A few years ago we had a whole series of 0 mana artefacts that could work well with The Antiquities War and cards like Tezzeret's Touch and Ensoul Artifact. We may yet get back to that situation. In the mean time 2 other cards that might fit into your deck are Pacification Array and Inventor's Goggles, although I would tend to leave them in the sideboard.

Deck looks sweet, from what Ive seen of the format so far I would cut the Fanatical Firebrand, it doesnt do a whole lot. Metallic Mimic seems out of place as does Inventor's Goggles. Squee, the Immortal could probably be cut as well. Prying Blade also isnt very good.
You could also cut a lot of the random creatures that arent historic like Warkite Marauder, Timestream Navigator, and Combat Celebrant. If you wanna timewalk effect I would look at Karn's Temporal Sundering though I dont think the deck needs it.
The only card I think you need to add is Walking Ballista. Possibly look more towards artifacts over legendary creatures. Also there are some nice utility lands around you could fit in like Scavenger Grounds and Arch of Orazca.
Thats all I could come up with, and it may or may not be correct just thoughts! Awesome deck and Glory to the Firemind!

Yeah Ghostfire Blade seems sweet, Ill have to find room for it. One mana artifacts like Inventor's Goggles are nice because it allows you to turn 3 Maverick Thopterist. Not too keen on Ornithopter though, it would just be there for improvise.
Inventor's Goggles really surprised me, it does a lot of work.

Another Success, went 3-1 at FNM
1-2 Against G/R Monsters
First game I stomped him, 2nd game I got only white lands, 3rd game I got only black lands. Should have been an easy win.
2-1 Against UR Artificers??
He was playing a bad deck, the one game he picked up was from having a thopter with 2 Inventor's Goggles attacked to it. Didn't draw any removal. The other two games went smoothly.
1-0 Against B/G Constrictor
First game was an easy win, kept his board empty with removal while he couldn't put a dent on my board. 2nd game I drew an interesting hand. Profane Procession Flip, Dusk, and Ixalan's Binding with some lands and a creature I can't remember. This was probably the longest game I've ever played with this deck. It had to have lasted around 20 turns. Arguel's Blood Fast Flip's flipped side saved this game. When I put it in, I never thought I would flip it. I played so poorly, so I think this game could have gone much better. It went to time and we got a draw for the 2nd game, so I won 1-0.
2-0 Against Budget Mono-Red
He ran out of steam and couldn't deal with both of my Gifted Aetherborn. Felt pretty good. If he had Earthshaker Khenra instead of Nest Robber in his deck, I think this game would have gone way better in his favor. 2nd game went similarly, with an easy win.

Oh, this looks really fun.
I only goldfished this a few times, but it seemed kind of slow unless Storm the Vault Flip was out. With an average CMC of 3.08 as I type this, I think I'd want 26x Lands, or maybe 25x and another Storm the Vault Flip. Incidentally, I always use the table at the bottom of this article by Hall of Famer Frank Karsten as my starting point.
How are the Inventor's Goggles working for you? I tried them in my deck but I didn't have enough Artificers (I only had 9x) to make it consistent enough for my tastes ... if it feels good in your deck, I may have to try it out again with 11x!
Please keep us posted on how it does!
And draw well!

You aren't on a very synergistic Energy plan so I don't like Whirler Virtuoso here as they are going to make just one Thopter. I would replace it with Maverick Thopterist because Mave makes you TWO whole Thopters and his Improvise ability means you'll often only be tapping 2-3 lands for him anyway just like you would for Virtuoso. For bonus points, it's an Artificer to boot and plays well with Inventor's Goggles. I would also trim the three Opt and four Ornithopter for some more interaction with opponent's creatures or a vehicle of some sort. I'm thinking Lightning Strike or Sky Skiff since we're going budget.

I'm not sure I like Ornithopter. I like the idea but I wouldn't know where to make room for it. Also, it feels like it'd only really be good when you're already ahead. One of the reasons I like the 2 mana artifacts is because they help 'curve out' - where the potential to T1 Island, T2 Servo Schematic, T3 Reverse Engineer and then T4 Bastion Inventor say.
That said, I'm open to suggestions, if you can find a slot! I must admit, one thought I had was to add Inventor's Goggles somewhere, but I'm again not sure where they'd go.
