ClockGear on Mono-Black Artifacts (Dominaria Standard)

@Super_Freak_1988 I think that Sunset Pyramid is a bit too slow (just like Treasure Map  Flip and Arguel's Blood Fast). If you want to play it, I suggest cutting the Metalspinner's Puzzleknot for it

@tibbgrocc Although Treasure Map  Flip has some synergy with the deck, I think it's a little too slow for what we're trying here. If you want to play it anyway I suggest you play it instead of Metalspinner's Puzzleknot.

I feel the need of Glint-Sleeve Siphoner in the main deck for card advantage and to use the energy from the Aether Hub, Attune with Aether , and Metalspinner's Puzzleknot.

@Noriyatsu I think Metalspinner's Puzzleknot works better, since it is also an artifact (so it could get discounted by Foundry Inspector. Also I think Arguel's Blood Fast is a bit slow.

I think Treasure Keeper could be interesting, but I would need to cut a 4-drop and I think the current ones are better. But it could be a pretty good budget alternative to Karn, Scion of Urza.

You'll want Vessel of Nascency as it fills your graveyard, essentially letting you draw 4. Also, Tezzeret's Touch is ridiculous in this deck as you constantly can cast the artifact and the enchantment each turn, giving you recursion effects for Metalspinner's Puzzleknot or even Implement of Malice

Smalls2004 Thanks for the comment! That's not terrible at all, and the life is negligible. I really dig Costly Plunder and Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip. I like to use a Costly Plunder to answer removal spells from opponent (Oh you think you're going to kill it huh?! Hahaha) or burying an Embalmer before opponent turn ends. Arguel's is more for attrition stages because the lifegain in this deck is so large that you can pretty much draw for as much mana as you wanna spend. This deck plays patiently and has no problem doing so, and this setup seems to do okay with draw in it's current form. Stoked as all heck for Dominaria though, going to add in some yummy knight action going like Danitha Capashen, Paragon.

That being said I might throw one of the Metalspinner's Puzzleknot in my U/G artifact deck. I use Costly Plunder in that too.

Argy on Snatchin' your people up

"Help me Argy-won, you're my only hope"

I have looked at decks like this before.

As you have identified, they don't fare well against Aggro, as they take too long to get up and running in comparison - the game is over before their pieces come together, or Control, as there aren't enough Opponent Creatures for them to grab.

We played around with Kitesail Freebooter in Ahoy, Me Hearties! and ended up replacing it with Duress. It is too easy to just kill it, and get back the card it stole. With Duress the card is gone forever.

The way forward here, I believe, is more Creatures to give you time to play your snatching cards, and to let more things die to buff Yahenni, Undying Partisan, which I believe you should have a full playset of. At least three copies.

Early stuff like Earthshaker Khenra would be the way to go. Things you are willing to trade for Opponent Creatures.

Here are some cards you could think about including:

I would also think about Glint-Sleeve Siphoner for early draw, or maybe even Metalspinner's Puzzleknot, which has worked for me. Your draw is happening far too late with Treasure Map  Flip.

Most people have one Arch of Orazca in their deck, these days.

I know that is a LOT to think about. Tag me in these Comments if you want to discuss things a bit more.
