Somber Hoverguard Discussion

This decks is sweet! I feel like it has what some of the Temur decks are missing... consistency in the mana base. Thats the only problem i've had with the temur decks. What do you guys think of Gearseeker Serpent and Somber Hoverguard over some of the other phyrexian creatures? Although this deck gives up some of the explosiveness found in the Atog decks, i feel it may be more consistent. It may need more mana fixing though, i'd consider some number of Chromatic Stars and Chromatic Spheres. I'm definatetly in love with the deck though.. Props 2 u sir.

If Scrap Trawler let you return a 0 cmc card after sac'ing another 0 cmc card, then it would be worth keeping in. I would replace it with Frogmite, Myr Enforcer, Somber Hoverguard, or Etched Champion.

Hi there! Welcome to Pauper!
I am a big fan Affinity/Metalcraft decks and I notice a couple of things right off the bat:
1) Triggering Affinity: maximize your Artifact Lands! Go 4x in each of your artifact lands, also, Darksteel Citadel can be taken advantage here. The advantage Pauper has is the ability to run Artifact lands, use them!
2) Splashing color (green) advice: splashing for color is fine, but having 8 forests for just one spell seems a bit excessive. Take advantage of color fixing like 2 more Prophetic Prism, or Springleaf Drum, replacing the Crawler. The best green creature for artifact based decks in Pauper is Carapace Forger, it's essentially a 4/4 for 2cmc!
4) Perhaps a bit too much land. 24 seems lit a bit much. Considering you have enablers like Etherium Sculptor, I really think you could dial it back to 20-21 lands and still be ok!
5) I notice a lot of current Standard draft chaff, or cards that are strictly worse than what is optionally available. Take the time if you get the chance to check out the current meta to see what other folks are playing with, dare say I point you to Pauper Affinity. Yet, there is many ways to build around the Affinity/Metalcraft theme in Pauper, heck, I have brewed a UW Gearseeker deck myself!
Your deck is a decent start, but IMO, it's got a ways to go! Thank you for sharing!

List looks fine, I'd suggest cutting the Somber Hoverguard for a Vault of Whispers and a Temur Battle Rage. Also, I'd suggest a 3/3 split between Flayer Husk and Prophetic Prism otherwise I think you're good.

The problem with this deck is that it is slower than the exhume version, the creature you are enchanting is 3/2 haster or 2/4 with flying instead of a 8/8 with annihilator and also, you have 17 cards that do absolutely nothing unless the stars align right.
How to solve the problem:
Use regular affinity to achieve the same results. Myr Enforcer, Somber Hoverguard and Quicksilver Behemoth all have CMC > 6 and they have affinity for the same thing, giving the deck much more easier time to dig for the pieces.

The only problem is applying pressure with the smaller creatures. Your Disciple of the Vault will take a lot of heat early game. especially since some of your creatures can't attack. If I get lucky and surprise someone with my Disciple triggers in the first game, they remove them on sight the second game and I usually end up having to rely on aggro from Myr Enforcer Somber Hoverguard and Carapace Forgers with Bonesplitters to stay on top.
