Hey nice looking Phenax deck! I got some fun ideas looking at it.... Illusionist's Bracers, Intellectual Offering, Paradox Engine, Breaking Wave, Intruder Alarm, Tidal Force, Wall of Frost, Shield Sphere, Undead Alchemist, Oblivion Sower, Dreamborn Muse, Silumgar, the Drifting Death, Thran Dynamo, Gilded Lotus, Arcane Laboratory. Cheers!

IlGuale haha yeah i actually only though about it since you mentioned Mizzium Skin. i haven't yet built the deck, because of problems finding Banishing Knacks and Shield Spheres, so i can't really test it in a playgroup.

One of my favorite enchantments to run for combos is Enduring Renewal. With all the colors you have access to, tutoring should be simple (if you can afford the tutors). It opens up all kinds of combos for you.
You are running Krark-Clan Ironworks already. If you also run some 0 casting cost artifact creatures like Phyrexian Walker, Ornithopter, or Shield Sphere, you can generate infinite colorless mana. If you run Blasting Station, you can do infinite damage. I see you are running Purphoros, God of the Forge, so that will get you infinite damage, as well. Goblin Bombardment is the same thing. If you run Grinding Station, you can get infinite mill. Cathodion can be sacrificed to get it started, and then its LTB ability will essentially make it a free recast to either of the stations or whatever sac outlet you plan to run. Since is one of Breya's colors, you can run some of the 0 casting cost Kobolds for some extra sac creatures as well. Enduring Renewal should help Breya combo off nicely, too.

I love the idea of the deck. Breaking symmetry on mutual land destruction messes with the big mana decks of the format. The 2-3 land delver starts look bad now.
One small suggestion:
+1  Firewild Borderpost
+2  Veinfire Borderpost
-2  Shield Sphere INTO SB because the card is a durdly card. You are an aggressive deck that wants aggressive starts.

Robotics91 I appreciate suggestion but while it is true that 2 Nettle Drone can make up a combo on their own, it is highly unlikely to not have any other combo pieces and be forced to pull it off. (I've never had such scenario occur in my games even when 4 Nettle Drone still were in the deck). Also if you don't have anything to defend the combo in your hand and your opponent is playing artifact removal he is going to break the combo through destroying Ornithopter or Shield Sphere anyway. Last but not least Battered Golem has more toughness which makes him able to block small creatures/tokens and survive some spells. That's my reasoning behind it. Of course you are free to disagree and change whatever you want. I'm sure it will work better in some matchups, depends what you are expecting to see.

catmario Nettle Drone is strictly better than Battered Golem in this deck. Not only does Nettle get removed by artifact hate, but 2 Nettles make another combo with Retraction Helix or Banishing Knack on one nettle, you tap other Nettle for damage and then they untap with Ornithopter or Shield Sphere. So you should run 4 Nettles and cut on golems if u have to.
