Hey Brotha

I would say if you want to run those creature cards your mana curve is a little all over the place you have 3xMarionette Master I would say lower this to two(2x) , Also take one of the Herald of Anguish out these are great ramp cards and big damage/win-con cards but you are trying to rush to get them out. You want to put some other creatures out to build a buffer see what your opponents deck is how they are playing, If you rush your big creatures out you may get them out early and sometimes you will win but then alot of the time you will get beat down before you can get them out or you will have to Sacrifice to many servo's to defend early game and they will not be as good because you haven't setup anything for them to work with.

Also Weaponcraft Enthusiast is great but this card is a great example of what I was talking about earlier in the post they are great to get servo's out but they are also in the spot to help defend early game aggro. IF your opponent attacks you and you got servo's then you will lose atleast 1-2 of the servo's you just made and your left with a 0/1 you can not split Fabricate it is all one way or the other just fyi. Also Battle at the Bridge is a good card but if the main point of your deck is to sac your servo's that means you may not have alot of servos maybe a few like 2-4 maybe depending on how the deck plays out what about Never / Return it does what Fatal push does it does cost a extra 2x mana and is slower being sorcery speed but it removes a target creature and deals with planeswalkers which is nice that way your are not depending on having servos and can just worry about sacing those to your creatures. I would say Glint-Sleeve Artisan is better than Weaponcraft Enthusiast in that spot it is one less servo but you get a better body creature and your deck should be making servo's anyways with all the options to make servo's.

Also not sure if you know Syndicate Trafficker is a great frontline creature his ability can be used any time at instant speed and it gives him a +1/+1 Counter not just till end of turn also it gives Indestructible until end of turn which lives through most destroy board wipes it is really hard to get a Indestructible creature off the board only ways is -1/-1 counters or a card that gives -/-*( example Yahenni's Expertise) until end of turn if a Indestructible creature has more negative counter on it than life points then it will die and send back to hand spells and cast counters etc... So the idea is to get a few tokens on the board then drop Syndicate Trafficker and immediately pump him for two or three depending on mana I like to give him at least 3-4 when I drop him. The way I like to play this is I drop Servo Schematic which makes a servo then when I have say two extra mana I drop Syndicate Trafficker and put two +1 counters, one of those counters is coming form Servo Schematic which when it dies makes another servo so you are making your creatures stronger and making servos at the same time maybe one counter and leave one mana up for a fatal push or to sac another servo on the opponents turn maybe trying to burn the Syndicate Trafficker this also pairs well with Marionette Master.

Also another idea Scrapheap Scrounger is another great card it cant block but you can keep bringing it back to the board by exiling another creature from your graveyard and it comes back to the battle field and it only cost Two mana good artifact to sac attack and bring back also goes with the idea of your deck also works with Marionette Master.

I'd been running a WB servo deck that used Inspiring Statuary as well... I actually preferred it over Cryptolith Rite, as it can be tapped itself which essentially neutralises the extra 1 mana cost, and avoids the issue of summoning sickness, allowing you to tap the servos you've just created... plus it won't be rotating out of standard next month.

It was performing pretty well at FNMs, but I have currently removed it from my deck as it wasn't quite fast enough for the current meta.

Some cards I had been using that might be of use in your deck...

Sram's Expertise can help to speed up servo production.

Hidden Stockpile can act as an extra way of going off with Marionette Master and scrying can be handy if you need to find a certain card.

Anointed Procession can be seriously powerful for servo production, especially in the late game (such as after a board wipe, which this sort of deck is rather susceptible to... on that note Heroic Intervention might be worth considering as well).

Battle at the Bridge works great with the Throne and doesn't need the rite/statuary to do so.

Herald of Anguish can be pretty handy, and again doesn't need the rite/statuary (although this would probably be more for post-rotation).

Torment of Hailfire this won me matches... it's already a powerful card, but when you can pump it up by tapping a load of creatures you can seriously cripple your opponent with it.

Hey What's Up Genuine

I would recommend to take a look at Sly Requisitioner As you can Improvise her out and she gens more Servos for you also, this with your Marionette Master that way killing also gens more servo's for ya. I think also Kambal, Consul of Allocation would be good in your build running 2 should be good he comes out and puts pressure on your opponent for playing non-creatures cards and combat tricks gives you another combo strategy with Marionette Master.

As far as removal I would have the one board wipe but with you being a token gen I think you will find yourself in a positions most times where you have it and it would be a good idea but it will leave you weaker some cases not all I would just run 1 board wipe and a few Fatal Push if you have them with you sacrificing servo's you will be able to take out 4 mana creatures for one black mana.

Also for mana related matters I put in two Cultivator's Caravan and they have put in a lot of work 3 mana for a manalith and you can also crew and attack with a 5/5 creature great card atleast a great sideboard card.

Personally I think that the things to add from your maybeboard are Marionette Master and Master Trinketeer because you can get more value from the servos. If you want you can have a look at my take on the deck: Black White Servos :)

Hey man! I really like your deck, looks a bit what I'm trying to do. I'm going to be looking at including Inspiring Statuary, you should too, it helps to get out all your other cool stuff :) Maybe try Marionette Master or Master Trinketeer for win conditions? Upvoted, keep it up:)

go down 2 Fumigate for 2 Dusk / Dawn wipe over your creatures and recurr your creatures with dawn and keep going. gideon grasp and ayli are going to rotate out if you care about rotation in standard, Ayli was great when ulamog was running rampant in standard. possibly go up 2 Oketra the True in place of Gideon, Ally of Zendikar maindeck Authority of the Consuls instead of Grasp of Darkness when it rotates the double black would be hard to get to but put in Marionette Master in the Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim spot

This deck has a lot of potential, for ideas, check out my deck This is bigger than you. All of you.. Marionette Master works so well with Tezzeret's cells. Hope it helps and good luck!

@TepigAggro I strongly considered Marionette Master so I will continue to play around with that cause I really do love that card. Syndicate Trafficker can be pretty awesome so maybe I can sideboard him in against removal heavy deck. Thanks for the suggestions!
