PauperPower haha, thanks man. I appreciate it, put a lot of hard work and a lot of stressful beat downs needed to adjust and improve this deck.

I actually had Falkenrath Noble in my initial build, but ended up just taking him out. He's good, but feel I have enough pingers with Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, and Marionette Master. In end had to make more room for other cards that were needed.

@DiggleMcGee, thank you for the suggestions. I did add a Thornbite Staff to the mix. Its just too good. I do like Soldevi Adnate, and he would pair nicely with my Priest of Yawgmoth as another mana-dork/synergy option.

I do like Haunted Cloak, and Marionette Master has been under consideration for some time. Do you have suggestions on what I should cut to make some of these additions? I'm very interested in your suggestions. Thanks for taking a look.

How do you feel about something like Soldevi Adnate? Its not exactly an early drop but you can get free artifact creatures with a Mycosynth Golem. I noticed you have a longbow how about getting a second support equip like Thornbite Staff or Scythe of the Wretched. A Haunted Cloak gives you access to a bunch of really nice keywords that lets glissa use the death touch trample combo and easily swing and defend the turn she comes out. Finally, Marionette Master can be a very powerful win con. If you put all the counters on her you can do 4 damage to all opponents on every artifact death which gets out of control very fast

btw, Morbid Curiosity would be my suggestion of choice. On average i draw like 3-4 cards off it. In dire situations in my Marionette Master deck i'd sacrifice Metalwork Colossus to draw 11 cards. Even if i have to discard a few afterward you definitely get whatever card you were looking for, plus in that deck the colossus works towards the Marionette Master win-con when you pull it from the graveyard.

i used to run a Marionette Master focused servo deck for standard @Aetherborn Master Artifacts. Love anything to do with artifacts in any way, shape or form. Im currently working working on a treasure deck to replace it @Torment of treasures(Updated). I know treasures barely count as artifacts lol, but black has lots of really nifty artifact sack, draw power if ur willing to look into it. I usually stick to low CMC though, having at least 65% of my deck playable by turn 2.

If i may ask, why Frogmite? Even if you do cast it for 0 later in the game, its still only a nilla 2/2. It seems like a dead card to me with its high manacost, and by the time its cast-able at all it doesnt stand up to what it will have to fight.

My mistake: it's actually more of an infinite life/mana combo: it's just that you will get infinite creatures entering/leaving the battlefield. I used to run Marionette Master to capitalize on sacrifice shenanigans like this, but I felt it was expensive mana wise to justify putting in the deck :/

First impression of the deck is that you don't have enough lands. I would add 2-3 more. Nomad Outpost and Command Tower are both cheap, must-have tri-lands. You could also consider utility lands like Ghost Quarter and Bojuka Bog

I would also play something like Ravenous Chupacabra instead of Unmake unless the exile/instant speed is really important to you.

If you are interested in another combo, Nim Deathmantle combos with your Ashnod's Altar and token producing creatures like Siege-Gang Commander for infinite death triggers/tokens/mana. Pia and Kiran Nalaar and Marionette Master are other good token makers. I think both are probably better than the Ponyback Brigade you have now.

Some cards that I think you could cut are Archfiend of Depravity, Death Denied, and Anarchist. You could also stand to trim a couple of your Alesha protecton/enablers because you don't always need one and they are poor in multiples.
