Why don't you run Loyal Retainers? That's an infinite combo with Saffi too, right?Although you can't combine it with blasting station, it is a 2-card (one being your commander) combo that results in infinite ETB/dies triggers

What is the win condition of the deck? With that, it would be easier to help you.

After careful consideration:

Winter Orb

Ghirapur AEther Grid (re-added)

Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer

Goblin Welder

Have been added to the mix. The Welder has been an all star in other artifact decks I have, like Breya. The mentality here is to weld something like an artifact land or essentially something I don't need contextually in favour of any stax card that may have been removed or countered. Similarly, Slobad is something I'm trying; sac'ing an artifact that may be hurting me more than opponents only to protect what I want seems worthy of tester slot. Almost makes me want to tinker with King Macar, the Gold-Cursed.

Out are things that have either been redundant or haven't been offering the same utility as others: Eidolon of Rhetoric, Vryn Wingmare, Loyal Retainers, Magus of the Tabernacle.

Magus is essentially a sideboard card whenever I'm dealing with token decks. It doesn't really put up enough to warrant a mainboard 99.

I can appreciate the idea of discarding more! And because it has shadow you're about as guaranteed to hit as if you had Horsemanship.

Ultimately, I went with Loyal Retainers for a couple of reasons. Being a legal target was a big factor, but the fact that it gives me another option to recur Alesha is huge. It saves me every time should someone destroy the general, assuming I can pull it off.

What are your thoughts on Loyal Retainers or Blinding Angel?

Baloth Null costs too much and goes against your commander

no Fauna Shaman or Survival of the Fittest? Works well with Loyal Retainers

Care to list your combos so I can get a better sense of what this deck is trying to do

I like your deck. +1 from me. I recommend Grasp of Fate (better in multiplayer).

Linvala, Keeper of Silence (and Elesh) are great with Living Plane.

Gaea's Cradle is nice with Living Plane also.

Inventors' Fair because you run so many artifacts, tutorable by sisay and can help you find Umbral Mantle to combo with Selvala, Heart of the Wilds.

NO Loyal Retainers????? It goes crazy with Survival of the Fittest (and also Sun Titan)

Thousand-Year Elixir is helpful once the engine is up and running and even before hand. Ancient Tomb for T3 Sisay and Command Tower because you're dual colored.

Feel free to check out my deck Captain my Captain, Lead us to Victory!
