NicS18 thanks for the suggestions. To be honest i used to run both Darksteel Forge and Mycosynth Lattice with Arcum Dagsson, but was a little to much.
Now that I think about it Dagsson was the problem, i will try to run the combo without him maybe.

jpsuchecki I love Panharmonicon but i have four maybe five ETB triggers in this deck, it's not really worth it.
I never used Skeleton Shard but it's fast and cheap enough for give it a chance, i like it, thanks!

Skeleton Shard could also be useful in this deck.

Well this just isn't competitive.

Skeleton Shard only recurrs Myr Retriver. Who returns another Myr retriver. So not that great.

All your creatures either fail the bolt test, or line up poorly with the cards that see play in the current format. Your wincon is a 7 mana dude in a 22 land deck, with no ramp. On turn 7 assuming you draw and play a land each turn, you will generally already be dead from the aggro decks, or dead from the combo decks. The midrange decks are able to out value and strip your hand by this.

You are running lots of 1 ofs, which don't really help you and your engine cards are both slow (Scepter costs 6 mana at sorcery speed to discard 1 card) and Elixar isn't really a thing in modern because there isn't really a mill deck and the life gain is minimal. Even control decks don't run it because they have access to Nahiri/Collonade/Clique etc.

What are you actually wanting? Some sort of aggressive, strip your hand, mono black deck? Or slow black mono black devotion midrange?

LTmiller that's what we thought at first, but Skeleton Shard only gets back artifact creatures so we made a mistake by putting it in.

I have an Artifact + Black deck with Silverskin Armor, Skeleton Shard, and two Myr Retriever. If I were to attach Silverskin Armor to Disciple of the Vault and it goes to the graveyard, can I use Myr Retriever or Skeleton Shard to bring Disciple of the Vault back from the graveyard to my hand?

Thanks for the comments on this and Part-ners: Ravos, SoulCycler. I hadn't considered Kusari-Gama yet. Between Whispersilk Cloak, Whirler Rogue, and Key to the City, I think I am happy with the number of evasion pieces for now. I also have a few other forms of recursion in the deck between Trading Post, Skeleton Shard and Beacon of Unrest, in case Silas doesn't have a clear path to through the battlefield.

Burnished Hart is a tempting target, but I am trying to spread the love between various partners. I may give the Hart to a deck without as many mana rocks (maybe Ravos, Soultender -- recursion in the command zone and the Hart's even from Theros!).

Nevinyrral's Disk seems like a serious consideration as a synergistic boardwipe. What to cut for it, though? Maybe Thada Adel, Acquisitor?

I would recommend some artifact lands Ancient Den or Vault of Whispers. Maybe a Skeleton Shard for recursion?

Awesome concept, dude! Have you considered a Skeleton Shard or two? Stay frosty!
