DanaBarrosReincarnate on Black and White Servos

first off, i would take out the 2x Felidar Guardian. they're great in a deck that relies heavily on revolt, or that has permanents that kill when re-casted for nothing, but the ONLY real benefit i could see from them would be triggering Hidden Stockpile when you have them out.

which brings me to Hidden Stockpile: i would suggest either running 4x of them (or at least 3x), or cutting them entirely. reason being, you would want to make sure you're hitting them consistently to make combos like Felidar Guardian worth including. personally, i think there are better options at the 2-spot. some suggestions: Servo Exhibition (more servos), Syndicate Trafficker (another outlet for sacrifice), Grasp of Darkness (kills most vehicles you will see, like heart), Collective Brutality or Blessed Alliance (both great for control/variety).

tho i do like the added benefit of adding a servo, Renegade's Getaway doesn't seem strong enough as a removal option. same goes for Live Fast & Die Young. they aren't bad necessarily, but you have no need for energy in this deck so i'd cut them. i'd rather run Ruinous Path, Anguished Unmaking, Fatal Push, Grasp of Darkness, & even Battle at the Bridge considering all the artifacts you'll be getting out easy. my working FNM deck (W/B Control) has the following for removal: 2x Ruinous Path, 3x Anguished Unmaking, 4x Fatal Push, 2x Grasp of Darkness, 2x Battle at the Bridge, & 1x Fumigate. since you're running less of a control deck & more of an aggro-servo, you would prob wanna tweak those numbers a bit (less not more), but those are all good options depending on your FNM meta.

altho i LOVE love love Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, i think YOUR deck would be better served running more Master Trinketeer's or Metallic Mimic's, & maybe another Angel of Invention.

overall, this is what i would add/subtract from your build:

TAKE OUT: 2x Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, 2x Felidar Guardian, 2x Bone Splinters, 2x Die Young, 2x Live Fast, 2x Swarm Surge, 2x Renegade's Getaway, 1x Weaponcraft Enthusiast

ADD IN:1x Hidden Stockpile, 2x Ruinous Path, 2x Anguished Unmaking, 2x Syndicate Trafficker, 4x Fatal Push, 1x Master Trinketeer, 1x Metallic Mimic, 1x Angel of Invention, 1x Animation Module

hope this helps!!

If you are looking for removal, i'd rather choose black : Live Fast, Die Young, Fatal Push, Ruinous Path, ...

OK this is what I suggest, but it is completely in theory and trying to let your deck not very far from what you have:

+1 Harnessed Lightning; +1Unlicensed Disintegration (is just alongside fatal push the best removal in the format); -All the artifacts; +4 Live Fast; -4Electrostatic Pummeler; -4 Inventor's Apprentice; +4 Weaponcraft Enthusiast; +3 Chief of the Foundry; +1 Reckless Fireweaver; +2 Herald of Anguish

But again is trying to not modify the base of your deck's strategy

Love the idea, but lose 2 Glint-Sleeve Siphoner in favor for 2 more Servant of the Conduit for mana consistency. Trophy Mage doesn't do anything in this deck, you could better leave it out for more Electrostatic Pummeler. you might also want to include Live Fast for the draw.

Control decks need card draw, and you've got none other than planeswalkers, so eventually you're going to run out of steam and get run over. Your best bet is probably Succumb to Temptation, unless you want to splash blue for Glimmer of Genius. Or if you decide to add in Dynavolt Tower then maybe Live Fast instead.

With the meta being what it is right now fatal push should be main-decked and not side boarded. I'd put it in over Anguished Unmaking.

i like this deck, seems powerful and not much to say on what you can work on, but you might want some mono black card draw like Merciless Resolve or Live Fast, since gifted aetherborn lets you be able to spend some life. I know Ob Nixilis gets you cards, but may not be fast enough or easily accessible as many such Planeswalkers cause immediate attention (your opponent will try to ruin whatever plan you have with your walker), while an innocent card drawing won't be disrupted as much (besides counterspells). you could also have some Yahenni, Undying Partisan in your sideboard, as it is very hasty and gets very powerful with your mimic and entourage, or something like Aetherborn Marauder, which can steal 1/1 counters from other creatures and put them on a flier. you could also sideboard instant speed removal like Murder, cause its not very great in mainboard but in certain matchups can work, such as if you were playing vs vehicles and had no removal that was powerful enough or was instant speed. and no, i won't stop that lol

Thraben Inspector is alright in this deck but I think that you would have a much better time increasing the number of removal spells or Heart of Kiran.

I always have an issue casting Anguished Unmaking in an aggressive match and considering most matches are fast, it may be a better sideboard card, even though it is my favorite spell in standard.

Also, you may benefit from some card draw or some sort of card advantage. Painful Truths, Succumb to Temptation, or even Live Fast.

have you thought of using Lifecrafter's Bestiary over Live Fast. i have seen alot of G/B decks use it for draw power against G/B mirror and control.

and there is a Bristling Hydra and Winding Constrictor that you can give them a go
