Pia Nalaar Discussion

Allright, this is the test build to try out running Jaya's Immolating Inferno
i run 5 legends mainboard, this gives a probability of ~72% to draw 1 of them in my first 13 cards.(7 opening hand +3for turns two to four, +3 in turn five for The Flame of Keld on turn four.)That might be a bit low, well see. if it is to low to often i will add Captain Lannery Storm raising the probability to ~79%. i think she is more useful in this deck then Pia Nalaar would be.
took out Siege-Gang Commander just to high on the curve, the plan is to win on turn 5, or come close to winning at least.took out Goblin Barrage this cards needs redundant pieces to be worth playing, there are none left in this deck....i think Skirk Prospector has to go as well for the same reasons as barrage.took out 1 mountain.

You might consider removing Refuse since you don't have that many spells of your own. Don't love Unwind.
You have enough fatties that Thran Temporal Gateway might be worth it.

Okay! thanks for the comments!
@SgtGomez404: I really like Pia's Revolution and its especially great in 1v1 format (better now since that Baral, Chief of Compliance is banned, but in a multiplayer format its a little bit less impactful, since there's more people, but ill keep it in mind. As for Throne of the God-Pharaoh its another great addition, so ill also keep it in mind, however, the deck doesn't have a bunch of creatures out at any given time so. I'll do some experiments to see if it will be impactful.
@Hexcimal: Thanks for the suggestions! The more information the better! Let's see here; I really like Aerial Modification and sometimes it has won me games, I like having it in addition to Aeronaut Admiral to add some redundancy. It also turns one of your vehicles into a blocker so there's that.
Reckless Fireweaver: I actually agree with you, it doesn't really do much and I think it's because it's not a mass artifact deck, at most you're plopping down one per turn so definitely something I can but.
I should probably add Gideon's Intervention in there, I just don't have the space!
Thanks for all the suggestions !!! I appreciate it!!

I would recommend removing Voltaic Servant. It doesn't seem to give you much value, due to Heart of Kiran, one of your main attackers, having vigilance on its own and most of the other artifacts don't benefit off being untapped. Sliding in a few copies of Pia Nalaar isn't a bad option for the three drop slot. Glint-Nest Crane could help you dig for your artifacts, seeing that this is an artifact heavy build. Antiquities War could be a fun little option to try out for size. Perhaps finding a blue draw spell that could fit it could help as well, but I don't know one off the top of my head. Nice idea overall.

Rampaging Ferocidon; Ahn-Crop Crasher ; Pia Nalaar would be better top curve. Chandra Phenix is a little to cute and doesn't add that much utility or deep to the deck.I would also add more one drop, Bomat Courier (It's a bit expensive, but his price should drop when he rotate out of standard) Falkenrath Gorger; Village Messenger Flip and Stromkirk Noble would had a vampire theme wich would reward you if you manage to clear the board for an attack.And Falkenrath Exterminator would be a nice two drop who add some reach

Pia Nalaar and 1x Kari Zev, Skyship Raider dropped from main board in favour of 2x Glorybringer for more consistency. Also dropped 1x Shock out of main board for another Abrade for artifact hate. Graveyard hate in the sideboard has been increased as well, my local meta is heavy with graveyard shenanigans. Aethersphere Harvester is out of stock at my LGS but it'll be replacing the Harsh Mentors once I can get hold of them.

I refuse to copy 3 other people in my playgroup. As silly as it sounds, I feel commander is about creativity and nothing is creative about building the same deck as three others.
I really think the best way to build him is an Eggs theme, and that typically runs a pretty penny. I want to start this deck off on a budget so a lot of the pieces i feel would be out of my reach. That and the fact I just... I don't like him as weird as it sounds. He just doesn't click with me.
Now that I've gone over what I don't want, here are a few commanders I've looked at (I think this is all the mono-red artifact generals but correct me if I'm wrong)
While he is very interesting as a general, I feel that he is fairly weak. I'm not against building weaker decks but I think he just doesn't fit into the shell of what I have so far. Feel free to prove me wrong though!
An artifact combo general sounds fairly cool, I'm just concerned that the deck will do nothing with him out which is something I'd prefer to avoid. Again feel free to prove me wrong.
On the overcosted side, it's always fun to fling things though. My biggest concern is that he IS an artifact himself and therefore is more vulnerable to removal and couple that with his high mana cost, well its safe to say I'm scared of playing him.
Now this guy is fairly interesting. I don't think I'd build him straight voltron however and just through in a few VERY good equiptment. Now I don't usually like voltron but maybe this can change my mind. We'll see.
Now while not a ARTIFACT general himself, this elder dino benefits much from ramp which the artifacts can provide. I feel it might be cool to do an artifact ramp shell with him as the commander providing beats AND CA.
Another odd choice and I love underused generals. The damage part isn't that good, maybe use it to finish off some utility dudes but the really cool part is the thopters. Maybe an artifact token build has to come in. I have a copy of Purphoros, God of the Forge laying around and maybe can blink it a few times with some artifacts and just go myr tokens and thopters?
Kinda a worse version of the previous card, but the unblockable and the fact she's a free sac outlet is cool. Maybe another kinda voltrony build and pump an artifact token and make their best blockers not be able to block?
Tuk-Tuk the Explorer:
I'll be honest, I have no idea how I'd build this guy. But he is a red general that has an artifact ability so I feel he's worth mentioning.
