Thanks for your comment ! Scrap Trawler seems fun but since I don't have that many artifact, i'm not sure it would not bring back something interesting. Anti-artifact cards are indeed something to put in the sideboard. It would also need something against enchant like authority of the consuls.

Is that a picture of Pyroclasm (well now I know that I've previewed my comment... yes... yes it is)?? Looks like a fun deck! I would think Scrap Trawler could do fun things with this deck. Looks very fast too! Do you have a typical turn that the deck really takes off? Have you playtested it much?

About the Release the Gremlins idea... I think it's a good idea! Almost all the decks in the meta have at least a couple artifacts too, so you usually won't have to use 100% of it on your own stuff. I would main 1 cuz you don't want more than 1 in your hand at the start. Then if they play artifacts, side in the others.

Cool deck!

Inspiring, this seems like a much more fun commander than Breya. I would probably run Scrap Trawler somewhere, with everything being an artifact, that is some insane recursion happening (though you'll have to protect it of course, but you'll get at least 1 artifact back).

This deck needs Scrap Trawler like neeeeeeeds. Could run either Embraal Gear-Smasher or Ironclad Revolutionary either would be really good, Defiant Salvager is also very good. I would also run 4 copies or Marionette Master like that card is crazy in this deck. Other then that good concept, side board recs would be Release the Gremlins or Gremlin Infestation depending on budget. Other then that seems really fun and budget, good job :)

why not run a more consistent # of the cards that synergize the most efficiently with Tezzeret's Touch/Mechanized Production?

i'd add: 2x Ornithopter, 2x Contraband Kingpin, 3x Foundry Inspector, 4x Scrapheap Scrounger, 1x Herald of Anguish, 1x Inspiring Statuary, 1x Reverse Engineer, 1x Pacification Array, 4x Fatal Push, 2x Battle at the Bridge, 2x Metalspinner's Puzzleknot, 2x Yahenni's Expertise, 1x Scrap Trawler

& take out: 4x Dhund Operative, 1x Pendulum of Patterns, 1x Walking Ballista, 2x Treasure Keeper, 4x Tezzeret's Simulacrum, 1x Essence Extraction & cut the land down to 22 or 23. the curve might not be perfect, but it's a start at least lol

running x2 of Merchant's Dockhand is fine, he will smooth out draws in the later game, and is a cheap artifact that can pump out your Herald of Anguish as soon as possible. speaking of which, going full aggro with cheap artifacts means that you need to have herald in your hand as early as turn 4 reliably, otherwise filling the board with just cheap artifacts is ok, but most of the time wont have that extra power to close out a game like the herald does. so for herald going with x3 or x4 copies even is good.

going a full x4 on the Hope of Ghirapur is an option. being a flyer it means that it is a great target for Tezzeret's Touch just like Ornithopter, just be careful because it is a legendary creature meaning only one can be on the battlefield at any given time.

x2 or x3 Scrap Trawler is good. you can draw him reliably with x3 and it doesnt raise the average CMC of the deck by too much.

x2 Reverse Engineer sounds good. opens up cards draw but limits how often it will get stuck in your hand early game

x2 of Tezzeret, Master of Metal is plenty enough. with 6 cmc, adding more would be counter productive. he costs too much to have just sitting in your hand. shame he doesnt have improvise.

Underhanded Designs is good for a sideboard card. you will have PLENTY of free artifacts to play, especially with Scrap Trawler and Servo Schematic

Tezzeret's Betrayal also has really high cmc, making it hard to cast reliably, so just make sure that you dont have too many in the deck, otherwise you can get stuck with multiple copies in hand and no mana to cast them

Awesome suggestions LithiumHD!I looked through my cards but for some reason I could not find more Ornithopters or Bone Saws. I guess it is a by product of my recent move. I did pick up 2 x Bone Saw, 3 x Ornithopter, Foil Scrap Trawler for a $1 from my LGS.I added 1 x Merchant's Dockhand and I am going to order a Hope of Ghirapur. Or should I up the number on those more than two each?I added another Scrap Trawler...should I add more?I am now using 4 x Tezzeret's Touch.I am going to try 2 x Reverse Engineer.I added another Tezzeret, Master of Metal. I do have a third one to add but I don't think it is as need since there is the Tezzeret's BetrayalI am going to order the Herald of Anguish in a couple of days...Anyone have thoughts on whether it should be a 2 x or more?The cards in the sideboard are some of the things I took out of the original deck.One card I thought about adding to the sideboard is Underhanded Designs
