Can I ask why Pain Seer and not Dark Confidant ? Is it because you don't want to lose the life every turn or is there something else that I'm missing? Or is it because of the huge price tag on Dark Confidant ?

Well, looking at it, almost every card has an enormously weaker budget option:
- 4x Walking Ballista / Triskelion
- 4x Arcbound Worker / Sparring Construct
- 4x Arcbound Ravager / Arcbound Slith
- 2x Dark Confidant / Pain Seer
- 4x Hangarback Walker / Hooded Hydra
- 4x Steel Overseer / Chronomaton
- 3x Welding Jar / Herbal Poultice
- 1x Animation Module
- 4x Darksteel Citadel
- 4x Forest
- 4x Inkmoth Nexus / Dread Statuary
- 2x Overgrown Tomb / Foul Orchard
- 1x Pendelhaven / Hashep Oasis
- 1x Phyrexia's Core / Claws of Gix
- 3x Wooded Foothills / Evolving Wilds
The deck would suck enormously, but it would be a deck. Are there any better budget options I missed?

Thanks, ! I like Noosegraf Mob & Ingot Chewer , I think I have some of those. Most else I cut because it was above 50 cents. I was going for hyper-budget and bought it for less than $30 (its my new favorite build-restriction tbh). This is the only deck I've found a place for Prince of Thralls , so I splurged xD.

i think you should add Night Market Lookout and Smuggler's Copter and make Pain Seer one of. i used to run that in my mono b aggro deck. They work very well with each other and they give you range and card advantage.

Really cool deck idea. I think Pitiless Horde could be replaced with some better early game creatures since it doesn't really synergize that well. Knight of the White Orchid could help with some ramping if you adjust your landbase accordingly. Bloodgift Demon is a good card for your strategy and can net you some card draw. Dark Confidant or the cheaper Pain Seer could be good options for early game card advantage as well. Either way, neat deck. +1 from me.

Hey, so it looks like you have stuffed the deck with ways to tap down your commander, but you're only untapping during your untap step for the most part, you should look into more untap affects. You have Saddlebags, which works, but I would look to add a few more; Staff of Domination , Umbral Mantle , Thornbite Staff , Thousand-Year Elixir , Paradox Engine , also there's Maze of Ith and Thaumatic Compass Flip. Additionally, if you're going to be tapping and untapping creatures, creatures like Avatar of Woe and Visara the Dreadful , to get more value out of those untap affects. Also, take a look at some of the Crew costs. You are low on creatures, high on Vehicles. You'll always have access to King Macar, the Gold-Cursed , but there's no guarantee you'll have creatures with Power > 2 on the battlefield on in your hand so; Aradara Express , Ballista Charger , Bomat Bazaar Barge , Conqueror's Galleon Flip, Consulate Dreadnought , Demolition Stomper , Fell Flagship , Heart of Kiran , Irontread Crusher , Skysovereign, Consul Flagship , and Weatherlight , all are likely dead cards on the battlefield, unable to be crewed. Also, Magus of the Coffers will be high value as well, generating mass amounts of mana while also being able to untapped by untappers. You also might want to look into adding some more card draw, you have Greed , but perhaps Bloodgift Demon , Pain Seer , and Dark Tutelage are solid options. I know some of my suggestions are expensive, but I'm just trying to help optimize, and efficient untappers are going to be expensive because they're rarer.
