Pacification Array Discussion

There's a reason why there aren't more creatures with vigilance besides the angel, it's because there's no need for them. I'll use the creatures you suggested as an example. Let's say I play either Alert Heedbonder or Tajuru Pathwarden. What do any of the these do to help develop my strategy? Nothing, especially the Heedbonder. The Pathwarden at the very least is big, but that's about it. Nether of them help to keep my opponent's creatures tapped. Taranika, Akroan Veteran I actually stopped to think about a little bit. However, it basically works the same way as the others. Sure she can untap my creatures and maybe grow some of them a little bit, which is important to know as a lot of the creatures wouldn't receive that big of a buff, but there's someone else that can also "untap" while also being an Engine. Soulherder. It doesn't technically untap but effectively is the same thing. To wrap up this point about vigilance, the only creatures that would benefit from having it would be the Bounding Krasis and Icefall Regent. Another thing to mention is Evolutionary Leap, which can turn useless tapped creatures into something more useful.
Icy Manipulator is an interesting one, but is kinda mana intensive due to the mana cost. Thankfully, I found other cards with similar effects, like Pacification Array. While I think the deck has sufficient tapping effects, this is something that caught my attention enough to make me want to playtest it.
Thanks for the opinion and suggestions!

Also, correct me if I am wrong, bit convoke spells synergize well too!

S h 1 T, totally missed the improvise on Reverse Engineer. A few years ago we had a whole series of 0 mana artefacts that could work well with The Antiquities War and cards like Tezzeret's Touch and Ensoul Artifact. We may yet get back to that situation. In the mean time 2 other cards that might fit into your deck are Pacification Array and Inventor's Goggles, although I would tend to leave them in the sideboard.

I would try the underplayed Pacification Array. Maybe vs non artifact control cards.
Sweet though, Traxos and Zahid have been my first purchases for Dominaria ...

deck looks great! always loved metalwork as a build around. currently though, you have five Sorcerous Spyglass if you add up those in the main and side board. a quick fix would to just throw in another Pacification Array but it's up to you. how's this deck treating you in matches online or in paper btw?

Spire of Industry does nothing for you ever. as does Unclaimed Territory or Unknown Shores. Inventors' Fair would be a good replacement for one and Sequestered Stash another. Even Arch of Orazca would be better.
You need some win cons that work.
Awakened Amalgam isnt bad. The Immortal Sun can ruin people. Golden Guardian Flip can be great as you can then start popping off with Golem tokens each turn. Metalwork Colossus if you best hope of rolling over people.
Skysovereign, Consul Flagship can kill creatures or plainswalkers as you essentially have no removal and a commander that just draws cards. Aethersphere Harvester has evasion and isrelatively easy to crew.
There are other things but thats about it that I can think of.
Pacification Array can keep their threats tapped which is the best removal you get.

It kinda suffers from the split personality problem many decks have. This seems too unfocused if you really want to play aetherborn tribal. If you do want to play aetherborn tribal, add Midnight Entourage and a bunch of other playable aetherborn. If you want to make a u/b artifact deck focusing on utilizing Phyrexian Scriptures, then remove the subtheme of aetherborns for more artifacts. Zahid and Herald are good in that case. Also, Pacification Array is really slow and ineffective, judging from my past experiences and Sentinel Totem is usually in the sideboard as a graveyard hate card. As b/g, you could run more counterspells, Unsummons, and Duress in the sideboard. These changes should be budget enough. If you don't care about budget, run Fatal Push and comtempt. You could even have The Scarab God to reanimate the non-artifact creatures that were killed by Phyrexian Scriptures, but usually it's just better to run almost all artifact creatures. As of the mana base, definitely run dual lands and 4xSpire of Industry if you're choosing the almost-all-artifact route. In that case, also include a bunch utility lands since you don't need that much colored mana: Scavenger Grounds (if you do use it, take out Sentinel Totem to free up space in your sideboard); Field of Ruin and Zhalfirin Void
