No Bolt? Smuggler's Copter is also a fantastic enabler for the deck. Also you may want to consider a lower curve, replacing expensive vamps like Aristocrat and Kalitas with Copter and maybe Stromkirk Noble. Madness works better with a lower curve.

Hey! Just a quick note here, Blade of Selves will make tokens that all see each other and then the Legend rule applies :\

  • 11/4/2015 If the equipped creature is legendary, the tokens will all enter the battlefield. Then youll choose one of them to remain on the battlefield. The others will be put into your graveyard. Any enters-the-battlefield or dies triggers of the tokens will work.

Great for any creatures with ETB effects, though.

As for any suggestions I can think of - I'm a huge Artificer fan :)

Sram, Senior Edificer seems extremely good in any voltron deck.

Inspiring Statuary and fabricate creatures like Angel of Invention or OG's like Myr Battlesphere would help cheat out your bigger creatures or Gods.

And you may as well go podracing here! Helps metalcraft! Maybe consider the stronger ones like Smuggler's Copter to draw, or Skysovereign, Consul Flagship? Or if you just want to bust out a big body - Consulate Dreadnought

Gold Myr, Iron Myr and Palladium Myr all seem decent as dorks.

Indomitable Archangel protects your stuff.

Goblin Welder, Eldrazi Displacer and Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer are all very useful; Welder recurs anything that might have been destroyed, Slobad protects what is about to be destroyed, and Displacer blinks your battlesphere - or an attacking general.

Myrsmith just helps churn this token cauldron for you to improvise with.

Argentum Armor is messy and janky, but I love it. And you can probably cheat it out.

If you had the money I would highly recommend accelerating the mana. Maybe not Mana Crypt (if you can, get it) but at least Mana Vault Basalt Monolith and Chrome Mox. You could also consider Unwinding Clock in that event.

I'd also consider Daretti, Scrap Savant. His plus ability is insane, and let's paint a picture for his minus;

Sac a myr token, bring back a Sword of Feast and Famine.


Sac a Scrap Trawler, it triggers, bring back your poor Mana Crypt then Daretti triggers and bring back something else.

@atlasthetitan64 Thanks! I actually haven't even touched this one since vehicles became so popular in Standard and since Aether Revolt. Smuggler's Copter isn't standard legal anymore so I'll update this to match standard regulations! I'll give this a little love if it helps even one person!

Maybe add Smuggler's Copter I believe you have two of those still right? Might as well find a use for those if you have them.

Cryptbreaker is insane. Dark Salvation is more variant that Dismember but you can learn to play well with it. You don't always have to dump everything into it. You can just pay a mana, count your zombies, and point at a dude. I think a card that more modern decks should experiment with is Smuggler's Copter. While some creature choices might look fun or interested, I think the creature base could be simplified and made to have room for Copter. It's a flying beater that fixes your draws and you also tend not to care about discarding. It might not have the flavor but it definitely has the function.

I also wouldn't argue with swamping in a second Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth over a swamp. It can help smooth clunky colorless land hands.

If you plan is to discard cards for madness I would recommend Smuggler's Copter.

Yeah I know many decks use Fling but I am not sure about that or maybe a one-of, I prefer sacrifying artifacts with Shrapnel Blast than my Atog or my Ravenous Intruder and having no board at all then. I will test Flight Spellbomb to use evasion if needed with atogs and see if it is better. Atogs and Smuggler's Copter are the only real win-cons of this deck with a bit of burn spells. In fact this deck is more midrange than classic all-in atog decks, less explosive, but I try to make it more reliable and able to recover wipes.
