Also, the looter scooter is by leaps and bounds better than the Heart of Kiran (Smuggler's Copter)

Maybe throwing is Start Your Engines?

I would definitely agree with going with RW. You can use Toolcraft Exemplar to crew any of your boys.

Fling seems like a bit of a non draw in this deck as your dreadnaught will almost never not have trample and your heart/scooter will have flying, and will therefore almost always get in for damage.

And as for Shrapnel Blast, maybe Galvanic Blast instead? Use Scrapheap Scroungers instead of enthusiasts and a couple Darksteel Citadels and you could have Metalcraft for days.

Dragonman39 only prob with ballista is it's not budget :( hangar may work but I really want to keep this build sub 40 so it's a true ultra budget. If you build the deck tho I can tell you from experience that hangarback is a good card and has great synergy with Shrapnel Blast

I didn't have trouble triggering herbalists, so long as I kept my fetches when drawing them when I tested. The biggest issue was that lupine prototype was barely ever a creature, while the lack of card advantage was notable enough to make me worried about fatal push/thoughtsieze playsets. That said, push/seize can be offset by just hitting your opponent hard enough that they lose before their card advantage tools come online.

The big thing to look at for the deck is critical turn. Without the disruption tools that midrange typically runs, (which going a coco route would take you to) you either need a lot of resiliency or to be comboing out, and this deck doesn't want to do either. So looking to do more stuff quickly is where its at. Playing it like burn with AK is a major option, but it doesn't really make best use of getting a lot of creatures on the board for cheap- hence a bushwhacker strategy.

I'd give some thought to Thud- hasty galta followed by thud is game. 1 mana lava axe is good. Most of the time here it is aGoblin Grenade You could also run Shrapnel Blast, if you run another couple of artifacts like a Bomat Courier or whatever.

Rampager is basically a slightly bigger giant growth. If you're looking at a 2 mana combat trick Temur Battle Rage will outperform it. If you're looking at 4 drop creatures, goreclaw and bloodbraid fill most of those slots, so you will have trouble casting it.

The biggest things I'd be looking at testing would be value discard tools- I'd consider Molten Vortex to help offset getting flooded with land so prototype turns on. Insolent Neonate is also a neat option, offering card filtering and triggering herbalists if you are worried.

6ixer I've tried testing out Shrapnel Blast in place of Infernal Plunge. Seems like a good fit. I don't think Galvanic Blast will work though. Don't have the critical mass of artifacts for metalcraft.

6ixer Shrapnel Blast could be a good add. What would you recommend taking out to slot it in? Not so sure about Koth of the Hammer though. This deck can have trouble getting to four mana.

With fair amount of artifacts you play can I suggest Shrapnel Blast and because I loved this deck back in the day in standard Koth of the Hammer

Thank you for your advice, xyr0s. I remember Shrapnel Blast from the original deck, I just wasn't sure it was worth it because of its cmc, but I'll try them out. 5 dmg is quite a bit of extra reach.

Isn't Springleaf Drum just for mana filtering, though? Did you mean Mox Opal?

I also have one of these robot-whack decks, and find that you gain a lot by exchanging a few lands for Springleaf Drum. Then you could also add a couple of Shrapnel Blast, which acts like a kind of overpriced Goblin Grenade.
