Also on the theme of card draw there's Painful Lesson, Live Fast, Costly Plunder, and Arguel's Blood Fast. All of these come at a cost of life but it does give you card draw.

You could try Dynavolt Tower. Just send the energy straight to their face. I'd try 2 or 3x since you have few instant/sorceries. You could add some Live Fast and/or Die Young so you can go full Towers. Adding about 3-5 more instant/sorceries should add a bit of synergy to help justify the Towers.

Drop bishops soldier for a draw spell like Costly Plunder and Live Fast. Agro decks gas out easily without consistent draw. Move kambal to the side. -1 fatal push -1 walk the plank -2 authority(to side) +4 Essence Extraction. With the two spots from kabal i would add 2 God-Pharaoh's Gift for mid/late game refresh, but you could also add Sacred Cat

Also consider Trespasser's Curse

Okay. So. First things first. The deck isn't standard Its modern due to some of the older cards. Lol.

But in a general sense if you want a good deck or at least a winning deck then you need to find one or two cards that do something you like and build to play around whatever that thing is.

So lets say that Arborback Stomper is your favorite card. And you love that life gain and the big power and toughness on it. What you could do is try to find a theme that would benefit you most in the life gain sense.

You could attempt to build a combination that will play the most to the extra life you have. If I was doing it then I would choose a few black cards that give me a bonus if I pay life for an ability. Something like Glint-Sleeve Siphoner that you can pay 1 life and energy to draw a card with, or Live Fast is actually pretty good. Or if you want to just build a big life total you could try Wildgrowth Walker with some exploring creatures like Merfolk Branchwalker or Dire Fleet Interloper. (A more expensive version is Deadeye Tracker but I gave you the cheaper one as an option first)

Once you discover a combo you like using the mechanic or card you liked originally, then you can get closer to a winning deck. It will help you find more cards that fit your over all game plan.

The next step is creating a win condition. You should have a dependable way of reducing your opponent to 0 within a reasonable time frame. So if your idea is "Make my creatures big and then Trample through" then you need creatures that are big and some with trample and ways of protecting them until you can attack with them. In this case its safe to assume you could build Wildgrowth Walker up to a strong Power and then play a card like Crash the Ramparts as a combat trick to push your trample damage over onto your opponent.

Get a list that you like and trim it down or fill it in as needed to get a complete deck list and play test it against another deck. Don't try it out against a very competitive deck. Try it against something like one of the Planeswalker starter decks. And work out what works and what doesn't.

I'm sorry for the book length comment but I hope it helps you out! Good luck!

I originally had 2 Lightning Runners.. I thought about Live Fast, but I didnt like the negative life.. And Multiform Wonder is a little above my curve.. But ill try the three to see if theres an actual fit.

Have you considered Lightning Runner? I feel it is under played and might be a good top end for you. Live Fast might come in handy as could Multiform Wonder

Maybe you want to take a look at my modern Aetherborn Masterrace-Deck it might give you a better Idea what you can do creature wise.

I'm not sure why you're not playing Yahenni, Undying Partisan he is one of the strongest Aetherborn out there if you support his ability with some removal.

Have you tried replacing Supernatural Stamina with Die Young? It would help you use the energy counters you get from Live Fast and could even remove strong creatures.

I would also suggest to up your lands to 22 at least when your average CMC is above 3. Cut the Regal Caracal and add Syndicate Trafficker because it can use all the Servos you can generate with Weaponcraft Enthusiast and Angel of Invention.

Oh and maybe I missed something or dont get it right now, but why is Panharmonicon in here?

pistachio28 - hmm if im playing energy why not? But in this deck, I can have the option to deal 2 damage to my opponent. maybe if I play glint sleeve siphoner in the SB, I will consider Live Fast
