Steel Overseer Discussion
2 days ago
First thing I have to say is that this deck is not a real Affinity deck. Not to suggest that the deck is bad, but most of what makes Affinity, as a deck, work seems to have been gutted for a different artifact plan. Affinity wants to get as many low cost creatures out as possible then use cards like Cranial Plating, Signal Pest, Master of Etherium, Steel Overseer, and Arcbound Ravager to turn that flood of cheap artifacts into a powerful synergy that overwhelms the opponent. If you are not trying to dump cheap artifacts and overcharge them with synergy enabling cards then you are not playing Affinity. Shrapnel Blast, Ensoul Artifact, and Tezzeret's Touch are not synergy enabling cards and their inclusion weakens Affinity's plan. I included Shrapnel Blast in my budget list because it does more than just burn my opponent, as I mentioned on my deck page, and I still run as many of the synergy enabling cards as are available within budget.
Because of the low artifact count you will have problems consistently hitting 3+ artifacts to turn on metalcraft and Cranial Plating is considerably less powerful.
I like Ensoul Artifact, but it is unable to dodge the best removal in the format (Fatal Push, Path to Exile, Abrupt Decay, Dismember, etc.) which sets you up for a 2-for-1. If Ensoul Artifact is something you want to use you will have to tailor your deck around the card. Check out my Ensoul Artifact deck for ideas on how to do that, Johnny 5 is Alive, it uses a discard shell, but I can see a counterspell shell working as well.
Another budget list you could look into is Gobots. Here is my version: Modern Gobots

I'd rather drop Memnite than Ornithopter since the latter is much better with Plating. Still, running both makes sense in a list centered around Ravager and/or Steel Overseer. Personally, I think Disciple of the Vault is weak without a combo or some significant token generation to back it up. Galvanic Blast would probably deal more damage. Etched Champion too is likely to get in some damage while putting less strain on your colored mana requirements.

What is the price range for cards suggested? That is super weird haha, you can lower the curve more by adding in the 2 cmc dorks like Gold Myr, Silver Myr, Manakin, Millikin. Or you can actually cut out the non efficient artifact creatures and use the rest of the slots for synergy.

mitzy thank you for your comment and suggestions. I thought about those cards, especially Dispatch, but for that I would have to either splash white or get non-basic lands and one of the appeals of this deck is that it is cheap to build. Nonetheless is something to consider in the future if I want to invest some more cash on it. Ensoul Artifact is great and maybe I can sit out 2 Shrapnel Blast for it. If Tezzeret the Seeker goes on mainboard is exactly to use "mass ensoul artifact", and get extra counters with Steel Overseer using its first ability. Vault Skirge is one of those cheap and efficient creatures the deck relies on and it's definitely an option, as is Perilous Myr.
