Tempered Steel too slow? Sorry haven’t played modern in 4 years. I ask because well you’re playing a hand full of 4 cmc cards why not a 3 cmc buff??

No because Cranial Plating is probably the best card in the deck. Usually you'l win from swinging with a huge Ornithopter, Signal Pest or Gingerbrute. And it's super scary when you get plating on Vault Skirge because of how much life you gain. I would cut one Tempered Steel because Steel Overseer will make all of your artifacts bigger and it's one less mana. If you don't want to cut Tempered Steel maybe cut a Galvanic Blast or just play an extra card.

I think that Gingerbrute is slightly better than Bomat Courier because brute can make itself unblockable to most creatures. If you can't find anything to cut I would take out one Memnite and maybe one Tempered Steel. You'r probably right about All That Glitters. Leaving in one or two Bomat Courier is probably good. It just feels really bad to have it on the battlefield with a lot of cards exiled under it and having no access to red mana.

Do you think Bomat Courier is better than Gingerbrute? I'm not sure what to take out for vault skirge, but I will definately be putting 4 of them in. I do agree taking out one or two etched champion and adding one more steel overseer.

I personally don't think all that glitters would be great, since its not an artifact it self, and modern is filled with cards like Fatal Push, so putting all that glitters on any creature I have might result in me getting 2 for oned. Losing two for one would especially be bad since the deck has no card draws Besides, the point of the deck is to go wide with Tempered Steel instead of making one beefy boy.

WhatevWorks on 3 open slots in Modern …

I made a budget RW Affinity deck in Modern, and I have 3 slots that I can't figure out how to fill. Currently, I'm playing 3x Tempered Steel in the slots, but that feels too slow compared to things like All That Glitters and Steel Overseer. What should I play in its place? I've been considering moving Emerge Unscathed to the mainboard, and I've also been considering Goblin Oriflamme or Shrapnel Blast, but none seem to fit perfectly in with the deck. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Seems kinda fragile I'd suggest a back up plan like beats with Tempered Steel and thopters

There were a bunch of traditional Tempered Steel budget affinity lists that are worth a look.

Have you looked at Thraben Inspector instead of Ardent Recruit? The artifact/redraw is worth a lot. There are some interesting modern artifact staples- Etched Champion , Blade Splicer , etc.

Leonin Elder is an interesting anti-burn tool, Servo Exhibition is a decent artifact count source.

The main trick to budget lists is to plan for your local meta and play to that- don't be scared to maindeck sideboard tools to get more slots.
