Sai, Master Thopterist Discussion

Here is my lengthy list of suggestions... get ready.
Braids, Conjurer Adept cheats creatures in for you, or could maybe somehow head up a grouphug deck??
Thassa, Deep-Dwelling could be a wacky blink commander.
Jalira, Master Polymorphist is super janky and fun- I know the spike option is to run one creature but the fun option is to run like a dozen and SPIN THE WHEEEEEEEEL.
Stitcher Geralf could surely be build around. Bonus points if the wincon is mill but zombie beats are all right too.
Talrand, Sky Summoner is one of my favorite cards. That is all.

Let me know if i was helpful or not

I'd definitely find a spot for Mirage Mirror . Voltaic Servant would fit in nicely as well. Throw Seat of the Synod back in the main. Master Transmuter if it's within your budget. Sai, Master Thopterist should be an auto include. Saheeli's Artistry ? Metalwork Colossus ?
I'm not gonna tell you what to take out as that is hard for me to do on my own decks let alone someone else's, so I'll leave the deciding to you.

I included Smothering Tithe more as a way to generate at least one artifact every turn to boost All That Glitters and Shambling Suit rather than actually use the mana. But you're right I don't have anything big and game winning at the end of the game that needs the mana, and i dont have enough card draw in there anyway to i end up top decking by turn 8-10. I'm going to try Sai, Master Thopterist instead of Smothering Tithe to see how it goes. I'm also thinking about running Karn, the Great Creator and using the -2 ability to pull in some other stuff.

Hey, Emry, Lurker of the Loch combos with Corridor Monitor and Witch's Oven . Monitor can untap Emry or Oven, Oven can sac Monitor and Emry lets you cast Monitor from your graveyard. This combo lets you keep casting Monitor from your graveyard getting it's untap trigger when it ETB. Food tokens are artifacts and each time you sac Monitor with Oven you create two artifacts because Monitor has 4 toughness.
Sai, Master Thopterist is a powerful card with artifacts especially with the Emry/Monitor/Oven combo which can each turn make a lot of 1/1 Thopters since you cast Monitor from your graveyard with Emry. Sai is also another way to sac Monitor to draw. Aetherflux Reservoir can be a win condition with the Emry/Monitor/Oven combo because you're casing Monitor from your graveyard with Emry.

Sweet! Gotta love thopters. I dig the deck! Seems like an excellent deck to learn with. I like your disruption package.
I just barely built a Saheeli, the Gifted deck that is thopter tribal at heart (Junk in the Trunk) but going all in with thopters is likely best done with Sai, Master Thopterist at the helm. My main goal was just to have a functioning Saheeli deck, so the thopter-tribal aspect is secondary in a sense. I do like the numerous creatures that make Thopters and have utility attached but having thopters coming reliably from the command zone would be great.

I never tried Cheerios in any format, but have seen a lot of different iterations on stream. Most of those are combo decks that use cards like Aetherflux Reservoir , Sai, Master Thopterist and Paradoxical Outcome for a ton of card draw and a huge OTK. Also lost to that more than a few times when it was Standard legal.
You only have Sram, Senior Edificer to generate card advantage, which makes the deck quite inconsistent, as any hand without him will be painfully slow. Your win-con is a creature Champion of the Flame , which makes the combo very fragile to interaction.
The idea is fun and definitely different, but I think you'd be much better off with the more traditional U/W approach.
