Servo Exhibition Discussion

So the deck can flip into your big humans with Winota much faster by using cards like Raise the Alarm , Servo Exhibition , Dragon Fodder , Krenko's Command , and Hordeling Outburst making a few non human tokens before you reach turn 3/4 when you want to reasonably get into Winota on the attack and get several triggers with her ability.

I'd like to see more token generation in the lower slots- convoke payoffs are amazing, but cutting a few to get a threat on the board that can scare 3 mana plainswalkers is essential for pioneer. More raise the alarm, more marshal.
In terms of 1 drops, Legion's Landing Flip Hunted Witness , Cartouche of Solidarity , Skymarcher Aspirant / Snubhorn Sentry , Thraben Inspector exist. If you make bigger tokens, Wake the Reflections can work. Springleaf Drum helps power out low-mana creatures.
Voice of Resurgence is the strongest 2 drop available for this list.
Further up the curve, Launch the Fleet , Countless Gears Renegade / Servo Exhibition , Dwynen's Elite , Animation Module / Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , Hero of Precinct One , Lovestruck Beast , Murder Investigation Precinct Captain , Thorn Lieutenant , Westvale Abbey Flip and Hanweir Militia Captain Flip
In terms of sidebord, we'll see how the meta shapes up, but Alive / Well , Dryad Militant are worth looking at beside standard options. Druid's Deliverance if vannafar combo takes off. Sundering Growth as an artifact answer.

Have you considered more incidental artifacts in the form of treasure or clues? Oko, Thief of Crowns is the obvious power move, but Karn, Scion of Urza lets you drop some big artifact tokens, and Saheeli, Sublime Artificer lets you copy up big artifacts.

There were a bunch of traditional Tempered Steel budget affinity lists that are worth a look.
The main trick to budget lists is to plan for your local meta and play to that- don't be scared to maindeck sideboard tools to get more slots.

If you had one in play certainly, but again 18 lands isn't enough to play a 4 drop on curve consistently. And if your affinity deck is making land drops 4 turns running with an unplayable 4 cost card stuck in hand till then, arent you already losing? Running out of cards in affinity isn't really off-track for what the deck is expected to do, however, with it being a budget deck you lack the oomph provided by cards like Arcbound Ravager . Typically the way affinity games want to go (non budget) is turn one dump their entire hand, turn two play a payoff. IE Steel Overseer or Arcbound. Springleaf Drum is essential during step one, but if you lack the payoffs you end up playing a bunch of mediocre creatures that wont be fast enough. This is probably why you feel like you run out of cards so much and why you think its the biggest problem. Going back to Mystic Forge , yeah its easy to see a situation where it would be insane, but you have to think about what your deck is ultimately doing. Affinity proper is an aggro deck with some combo potential provided by Arcbound Ravager . Without that, it's really just an aggro deck trying to get creatures into play and win with big Cranial Plating swings or going wide. So, given the mana you have, by the time you can cast Mystic Forge aren't you already losing a fair deal? Affinity really doesnt want more than 2 lands and would rather just keep adding creatures to the board. I'd suggest you embrace your choice to play Tempered Steel as it's something this deck does that real affinity doesnt. Hence why earlier I suggested Servo Exhibition .

TLDR - Its not a combo deck so get rid of slow stuff and get more things on the ground.
Board the Weatherlight seems not very good, I think almost anything in your maybe section would serve better than this. Spending 2 mana and a card to draw (bad) card really doesn't win affinity games. You want to be fast and have things in play, not to mention with 18 lands and no Moxs' this is super hard to cast and then make use of. I'd consider Servo Exhibition because of the combos with Signal Pest and Tempered Steel .

Thanks for the information, Infect isn't the primary win condition for Affinity, it's generally an alternative to simply flooding the board with cheap artifact creatures and pumping with Steel Overseer , Arcbound Ravager , or Cranial Plating . However, I removed Blinkmoth Nexus for the sheer fact Inkmoth Nexus presents another win condition, outside of the that traditional aggro beatdown traditionally offered by affinity. this time also isn't a traditional Affinity deck as it goes wide, and mid-range thanks to Tempered Steel and Servo Exhibition . Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

Hello everyone, lately I have been considering constructing a deck based around Tempered Steel , Servo Exhibition and Sram's Expertise since there's a lot of explosive potential with these cards. However, I feel this deck is more luck oriented than traditional affinity, and I am interested in making it more consistent. Below is a link to the deck I am constructing based on cards I have on hand, and any/all help is welcome. Thanks again!!
