Metallic Rebuke Discussion

Looks like a really fun deck! Metallic Rebuke might be fun if you can get out 1-2 clues.

jp9506 cheers for the advice. However from the options I see here I think that there is only one really viable. Lemme break down my reasoning below:
Mechanized Production. It seems good but when playing this deck I rarely have any more than four or five constructs out at a given time. Also with little to no creatures my opponents are happy to use removal on the constructs meaning that whatever I enchant with Mechanized Production will be hitting the graveyard hard.
Inspiring Statutary seems good if I'm running an Artifact heavy deck. My constructs are there to attack or block, not as an additional mana source. Also it hits the three drop slot which is reserved for counters or Dynavolt Tower.
Metallic Rebuke again it seems good on the surface but I won't be getting improvise off this until turn 6 or 7 at the earliest. And that late in the game it is just a bad card. By that point my opponent will have plenty of mana to offset the card. I'd rather just have unconditional counters like Void Shatter and Disallow.
Whir of Invention seems like a late game haymaker which would be a complete blow out. This is an idea I could get behind and may include either main board or sideboard after some testing.
Once again thanks for the feedback it's greatly appreciated :).

I'd leave in the Metallic Rebuke and only put in 3 Arrays, You really want to keep your instant speed answers to Saheeli Twin up high.

Zaueski what are your thoughts about:

Because you already have the more versatile Foundry Inspector, drop the more difficult to cast Herald of Kozilek. Also, looking at your mana curve, there's no way 18 lands will be sufficient. Probably need about 22 (maybe 21 if you're feeling daring).
I get the idea with Implement of Examination and Implement of Combustion, but I would drop those because you have way too many cards (74) and these are the easiest targets to drop in your list so far. For 3 mana, there are better counter spells than Metallic Rebuke. Walking Ballista is cool, but not in such a mana thin deck-- I would drop it. That card is definitely meant for cards with mana ramp and/or midrange or control decks. You'll struggle to get value out of that with your current deck idea (smaller creatures and spells overall, leading to a smaller mana base overall).
Hopefully these ideas are helpful? :)

Take a look at this list:
This is exactly where we want to be with AER. We get another card draw engine from Sram, Senior Edificer, a cheap counter spell out of Metallic Rebuke and our artifacts, and cheap card draw from Reverse Engineer. The deck has waaaay more consistency and viability now.

I realize we're talking about an entirely different deck here but I'm wondering what you'd think about a grixis artifact flavored control deck with the new AER cards like new Tezzeret, Pacification Array, Metallic Rebuke, Reverse Engineer, and then going up a copy or two of Disintegration? I netdecked a UB Improvise list that hits pretty hard and am thinking we could put a nice twist on it with the addition of burn/sweepers. It's possible that in a deck like this we may not be utilizing GDD or Torrential Gearhulk (however I could see the Gearhulk staying in order to re-cast Engineer or kill spells, but the artifacts might dilute his utility). Herald of Anguish is soooooo good.
Anyway, I'd love to hear if you'd entertain a list like this! What do you think, would we still want Torrential Gearhulk in a list like this? After all, he is an artifact.

I'm sure you've already started looking at Aether Revolt. Here's a quick list of stuff that'll run well in this kind of build.
Whir of Invention - X Costed spells with Metallurgic Summonings are sick in general. Given this has improvise, it is all but broken in this build. Tap 6 Constructs/Artifacts, pay UUU, make a 9/9 Construct, tutor Torrential Gearhulk into play, cast something for free from your graveyard to make a second ?/? Construct.
