Dont add Reverse Engineer is bad and always feels useless too play. even with the card draw. i have done some testing with a midrange improvise deck and the card feels bad too play everytime cos u tap out ur blockers for it. http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/impro-b/. it went 2/2 on game day lost too zombies 2/1, lack of blue mana for counter and lost too mardu vehicles 2/1. lack af balista in last game. and i did cut Tezzeret the Schemer cos he just feel like a 4 mana killspell in my deck hope u make him work in the this.

Aether Revolt really helped this style of deck. Fatal Push and Metallic Rebuke add a control element, Winding Constrictor and Walking Ballista complement the Tireless Tracker alt win condition (and the main one), and Tezzeret the Schemer is a huge boon for the end game. Tezzeret comes on board with six counters so I can get at least two Etherium Cells whenever he's cast. This way on the turn Marionette Master is cast I can sack Cells to sack Clues and either shoot face with Ballista so he dies or just cast for zero from my hand. Shooting my own Marionette Master 1's servos with a second Marionette Master in play was particularly fun. I just won Amonkhet game day against the best decks with this list: Sultai Master

Well, I also went undefeated at FNM tonight! I had some interesting matchups where they got the control/removal they needed and put me on edge a few times. I had 1 mulligan the whole night, so I'm pretty happy vs last week where I had quite a few which didn't help. Anyway, breakdown of the night:

  • Round 1: 2-1 Win - RU Control with Torrential Gearhulk
  • Round 2: 2-1 Win - 4c Energy with Bristling Hydra. It was really odd playing against Hydras and Longtusk Cub but dude ran four color with Spell Queller outta nowhere. Was... Odd...
  • Round 3: 2-1 Win - BU Metalwork Colossus and Tezzeret the Schemer artifact deck. Had a poor sequence of plays and removal from my opponent that left Rhonas a statue during one match
  • Round 4: 2-0 Win - WB Zombie, had to Fling a Hydra for lethal in game 1 or I was dead, amazing stuff

Oh and my 8 pack winnings had a Liliana, Death's Majesty and Gideon of the Trials... Muwuahahahaha

Hey DubiousDanish, the more I look at it me more I find it hard to put to a place where it is competitive :$ Marvel aside, I think you can put up some pressure with smth like:

Enchantment (3) 3x Tezzeret's Touch

Planeswalker (5) 3x Tezzeret the Schemer 2x Ob Nixilis Reignited

Creature (16) 4x Chief of the Foundry 4x Metallic Mimic 4x Scrap Trawler 4x Walking Ballista

Instant (7) 3x Fatal Push 4x Unlicensed Disintegration

Artifact (3)3x Heart of Kiran

I would always put 4x Walking Ballista, since he's a Construct and picked by Scrap Trawler? He would be your mana sink later games.I am not certain about Bomat Courier since my build is not going so aggro. I would put it down to 23 lands, since Tezzeret the Schemer can give you the extra mana. I don'y think the curve is ideal, as you still have many 3 drops, but for this build I'd say Unlicensed Disintegration is the best removal.Anyway, let me know what you think of this and if you get a chance to play test it! :)

Currently the only walkers I have for trade are Tezzeret the Schemer and Ajani, Caller of the Pride. I am receiving a Gideon of the Trials as part of another trade that went awry but I can't 100% say I have it until I actually physically have it lol. Let me know if your interested

Oh, you don't have to sell me on Whirler Virtuoso. It's a really strong card if I have the other pieces, but it's generally weaker than Architect of the Untamed and Aethersphere Harvester. It's in the sideboard, but only because I want to make sure I'm in a slow enough matchup before I play it.

What you said about not messing with blue mana would usually be correct, but in all of my playtesting, I haven't really had any trouble casting any of my spells. If it ever does get too rough, though, I'll look into using Spire of Industry.

Gonti's Aether Heart certainly does go infinite with Virtuouso. Saheeli Rai is a little weird, but it costs 3 less mana than Heart does and the ult is a little cheeky for this deck in particular (though you'd probably only ever want to use the -2 ability). I'm currently looking in to testing Tezzeret the Schemer in her place, but Gonti's Aether Heart may make it's way into the sideboard with Whirler Virtuoso.

Thanks for the suggestions!

It's cool to see someone using Tezzeret the Schemer in their deck! I just playtested it against my Aristocrats deck, seemed to be a really close matchup even with me piloting your deck. Do you feel like you get enough value out of the Deadlock Trap? You don't have a ton of sources of energy out there to work with, so I'm not sure if its uptime is long enough to be worth a deck slot. The other thing that stood out to me was the lack of Censor: having to have the correct 2 mana counterspell vs a universal spell on turn two, especially on the draw, was what allowed my deck to set up a board and start saccing creatures to drain you out. I feel like either having broader counterspells, or mainboarding some hard removal so you have more straightforward, permanent interaction with the board, would give you a better shot at lasting to your late game. Fun deck, thanks for posting it!
