Myr Retriever + Scrap Trawler + Spine of Ish Sah + Krark-Clan Ironworks/Ashnod's Altar + Foundry Inspector/Jhoira's Familiar/Etherium Sculptor

Sac Myr Retriever to KCI/Altar (+2Mana) sac Spine (+4Mana) sac Scrap Trawler (+6Mana) get Myr Retriever back with Scrap Trawler trigger from Spine, get Spine back from itself. If you have at least Mana cost reduce of 2 you can now play Myr Retriever for free, Scrap trawler for 1 and Spine for 5. It's +-0 but you get to destroy a permanent for each time you do this loop (Yep, including lands!)Also gets you back an Artifact from your grave everytime you do this (Thanks to Myr Retriever)

Works with Spine and sac engine with every Infinite Mana combo, too.

You can play Scrap Trawler by itself. It’s just a good way to recover is someone vandalblasts or the like. Doesn’t have to go infinite.

Scrap Trawler might be better. I just realized it wasn’t in there.

You could add Sword of the Meek and Thopter Foundry too. Foundry would be good on it’s own, plus it gives you a combo to end the game with KCI.

I like a lot of these suggestions and have them in mind for the future, I have a Scrap Trawler, just when I was testing it I found that it was difficult to put fatties back into my hand where Myr Retriever was easily able to grab them. I'm slowly picking at cards to throw into my deck, also the thing I like about Storm the Vault is that I can really get easy use out of my Planar Bridge since the cost to use it is not discounted itself, plus with an Unwinding Clock and a Mycosynth Lattice I can tutor fatties every turn with easy and still have mana up for other spells assuming Omniscience isn't in play.

I run a Saheeli, the Gifted list with the same goal that is very consistent if you wanted to check it out. How does this deck usually play out?

I run a few X spells such Braingeyser and Mind Spring as they scale with Saheeli. Goblin Welder is cheaper than Trash for Treasure. It is also repeatable and can target other peoples graveyards. I think Scrap Trawler is better than Myr Retriever because it will give a similar effect to all of your artifacts so you are constantly cycling when something dies. Plus if a board wipe happens you will likely replace a few things that died earlier and be in a better position to rebuild.

Speaking of board wipes I would run Cyclonic Rift and All Is Dust. They can flat out win you the game and Saheeli can put her extra mana towards the overload cost.

Since you are running Mycosynth Lattice I would also run Darksteel Forge. It makes everything you have indestructible. Running that with Padeem, Consul of Innovation will give everything you have hexproof in addtion to indestructible.

It That Betrays is a great Mirage Mirror target. My playgroup tends to sacrifice lands first so getting 4 lands per turn from them is a hoot.

Do you get much use out of Storm the Vault? Its been a dead card in my hand evey game. I always already have the mana to drop an Eldrazi so it just seems like extra.

I almost forgot Master Transmuter can change out your Servos for Blightsteel Colossus or any other artifact you have. She can also do it in response to someone trying to kill an artifact. You can just flop it for something else in your hand in response and then drop it again the next turn.

I like the inclusion of Reality Shift. It is definitely going to find a home in my own deck.

Have fun playing! I think Saheeli is a lot better than people give her credit for.

Thank you! I can't believe I forgot to put Scrap Trawler on the list, it definitely belongs as just another way to recur goodies without having to assassinate a creature. I like Treasure Keeper as well, since his psuedo-cascade hits a lot of this deck's favorite pieces. Treasure Keeper finding something great like Executioner's Capsule or Phyrexian Arena is so likely with this deck, especially if the target can help recure Treasure Keeper to do it all again

I really like Paradox Engine and Scrap Trawler in here. Maybe even Treasure Keeper. Deck looks fun!
