This deck seems all over the place, like why are you running Uninvited Geist  Flip. 1 Wandering Fumarole, and 1 Spirebluff Canal. Is this a deck you are making? and you merely put the cards you own? If not, it's spread too thin. Like run a playset of Thing in the Ice  Flip, and 3 of's some of the instants and sorceries. Maybe even a playset of Take Inventory. Also Avacyn's Judgement just seems really awkward being here, along with Paradoxical Outcome, and several other cards. Maybe make it into a Dynavolt Tower based deck. Sorry if i'm being too much of a critic. However

Heyy, nice; Paradoxical Outcome can draw you a bunch and fill up your hand for preeetty cheap, plus give you the opportunity to replay other cards

I've just finished my own Nekusar deck today, testing tomorrow...with all the wheels you want to play or Nekusar, having a win option with storm makes sense imo. I've even gone so far as making the storm combo the primary win option with Nekusar and other permanents only playing a side role. The main problem will be that Nekusar won't survive long and you probably only get one attempt at playing a killing turn.

Aetherflux Reservoir is awesome imo, also Paradoxical Outcome if you plan on putting more 0-1 mana artiacts in the deck. With yawgmoth's will and past in flames you should probably play Seething Song, Pyretic Ritual, Desperate Ritual and Cabal Ritual...Ignite Memories can kill with a very low storm count in commander, because with some luck you will hit high cmc cards (by the time you can pull that off, people will have the high cmc spells still in their hands and few to no cheap ones left).

Inspiring Statuary seems great here with all the equipment and instants, also it can turn off howling mine for opponents. Paradoxical Outcome might be cool as an attack enabler and hand filler. Whir of Invention, Scourge of Fleets, Master of Waves, High Tide & Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx are great in mono blue.

I really love Paradoxical Outcome and Aetherflux Reservoir which is why I built this fun deck>Get Fluxed Up where I use the reservoir as a win con. What is your win condition in this?

Stoneforge Mystic is really sub-par outside of White Trash or Noble Fish. The much more insane card in U/W is Monastery Mentor, who is absolutely absurd with Gush, Paradoxical Outcome, Time Walk, Sensei's Divining Top, and planeswalkers.

You can then play maindeck Stony Silence, forcing other decks to play fair while you do stupid things, like drawing a bunch of cards and slowly closing out the game with Jace, the Mind Sculptor or Monastery Mentor.

Basically, if you're playing U/W Stoneblade in Vintage, you're just playing a worse version of U/W Mentor that loses to Stony Silence and Null Rod.

If that's not really your thing, there's also U/W Landstill. That deck is harder than a coffin nail. Difficult to pilot, but also difficult to beat. The benefit it has over Mentor is having the full list of relevant Counterspells, all the blue draw spells, all while playing 4 Wasteland and Strip Mine without mana issues.

If you're still determined to play Stoneforge Mystic, I'd go the Noble Fish route. Here is one version that's pretty solid and is running minimal power, making it a good starting point if your tournaments only allow a limited number of proxies.

Hey friend! Love the deck idea; it's super original. However, your deck suffers from being a tad unfocused. You've got a lot of ideas rattling around here at once, and so as a whole your deck will not be as effective. For casual builds, that's fine, but if you're interested in taking it to the next level, I'd focus the deck a bit more.

Firstly, if you're going to Servo tribal specifically, I'd add in W. Master Trinketeer, Angel of Invention, Servo Exhibition, and Sram's Expertise are all auto-includes in a Servo tribal build.

On the other hand, if you want to go UG AEtherflux Storm, I'd suggest something like Paradoxical Outcome and a lot of Ornithopters!.

Finally, if you're wanting UG aggro, go with Metalwork Colossus and a Overrun effect.

Hope that helps! The direction the deck goes is up to you, but maybe that will help focus your efforts. Let me know if I can help in any other way! Good luck.

incidentally, Torrential Gearhulk / Snapcaster Mage into Paradoxical Outcome does so much work and draws me plenty
