Karn, Scion of Urza Discussion

Imho the best cards that are really going to be the ones that win games for this kind of deck are Steel Overseer , Karn, Scion of Urza , and Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge . I mean no disrespect by saying that a lot of the other cards really aren't that good; it's just the reality of the card pool you have to work with in Standard.
One thing that all 3 of them have in common is that they reward you for having as many artifact creatures in play as possible. So my recommendation would be to adopt a go-wide strategy to fuel your breadwinners, and the best engines for that would probably be Saheeli, Sublime Artificer and Dovin, Grand Arbiter . Sai, Master Thopterist could be good as well with enough actual artifacts in the deck, but it would be tough to strike the right balance between the different demands of Saheeli, Sai, and Steel Overseer, so if I had to pick one to leave out it would be Sai, since that will allow you to keep the mediocre artifact creatures to a minimum & focus more on the powerful planeswalkers that generate tokens. Since I mentioned Dovin, Depose / Deploy is another good White card that could contribute to this strategy.

Cards I run in affinity that could help you here:
Master of Etherium : would be a 5/5 then get the +whatever/+whatever, plus pump your team
Karn, Scion of Urza : Can either be card draw or create tokens that when enchanted become at least 6/6's
Springleaf Drum : Especially w/ Memnite , can make insane starts by going Ornithopter , Ornithopter , Memnite , land, Springleaf Drum Springleaf Drum , Signal Pest . Just allows for more explosive nut draws.
Memnite : See above.
Cranial Plating : Easy to make your stuff huge quick.
Inventors' Fair : Keep your life high and be able to tutor for specific artifacts
Blinkmoth Nexus : Another artifact land
Cards you should consider cutting:
Tezzeret the Schemer : Inefficient removal, and the ult will never happen.
This is just my 2 cents, I hope you take these into considerati

Icbrgr: I think metal-craft/artifact Skred is interesting with New Karn, Scion of Urza , I might want to try it out if we get more options going forward.
lukas96: What do you think then of Chandra? I feel if anything she can be removed for new Chandra, Awakened Inferno when she's released as a solid one of, despite the cost might be good for slower metas.
The sideboard I can also see cleaning out Dragon's Claw , what would you put in? SSG seems very good for exploding on slower opponents, and meeting matches against unfair decks, Its solid all around so I can't see dropping him.

The asterisk is used in some markup languages (like the one used on tappedout) to denote italics. Thus when you type */* you get "/". I looked up the html code for an asterisk which happens to be "*". Then I typed */* into the text entry field. Since ampersand has a special purpose, I had to do the same thing for it to show you what I typed in and also did the pound sign just to be sure.
The only functional difference I can see between Karn, Scion of Urza 's tokens and Voice of Resurgence 's tokens is if something were to set base P/T. Voice's tokens would be whatever the new effect set the P/T to and Karn's would be new base plus the buff from the static ability. The minutiae of the rules makes lot of things that appear the same at first glance slightly functionally different. I'm not sure why design chooses one over another, I am just familiar enough with subtle interactions to know what the difference means. Also, you are correct about what CDA means.

, now I understand the difference, but what about tokens? Why would the tokens that Karn, Scion of Urza generates use the static ability rather than the CDA?

I changed out Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord for Chandra, Fire Artisan . Mostly because I have Chandras, not necessarily because she’s better than Karn, Scion of Urza . I’d rather play Board the Weatherlight than Ignite the Beacon . I don’t know why, but I’m not a big fan of Ignite.
