That Which Was Taken Discussion

Seems like the game plan is to equip Yidris, attack, then cast more equipment to cascade more equipment, and maybe cast a Storm spell at the end? You could benefit from Paradox Engine, a lot more mana rocks like Everflowing Chalice, Chromatic Lantern, Coalition Relic, and Gilded Lotus, equipment like Masterwork of Ingenuity and Golem-Skin Gauntlets, Vedalken Archmage to draw more cards, and possibly extra attack step like Aggravated Assault and Savage Beating or extra turn spells. Your other creatures don't seem very efficient. You might not be running enough instants and sorceries to benefit from Metallurgic Summonings. That Which Was Taken doesn't seem as cost-efficient as Darksteel Plate or Darksteel Forge.

Really awesome deck! I can see how much time you put into his! Only one suggestion. Since the one on the battlefield is the most vulnerable, maybe add something like Renegade's Getaway or That Which Was Taken to save it if necessary. Since you only have 4, taking away 1 ruins everything.

Lands: Take out 2 Mountains, Stone Quarry, Cinder Barrens, and Forsaken Sanctuary and maybe the Guildgates if you want and add in at least one plains, Haven of the Spirit Dragon, any of the life gain dual lands from Tarkir... just use better duals than the strictly-worse guildgates. I have a personal issue with those lands. They insulted "Avatar the Last Airbender" once.
Things to pull: Ancient Hellkite works to slow, requires to much investment, and is too conditional. Forgestoker Dragon cuz it's clunky and slow compared to other things. (A lot of these suggestions will be cutting the worst of duplicate effects). Aegis Angel (above reason)? Wojek Embermage? Paragon of Open Graves cuz you don't have enough black to make its ability work. Scalding Salamander is too conditional. Either Vulshok Sorcerer or Blood Cultist. Crossbow Infantry. Stun Sniper. Painsmith because not enough artifacts.
Artifacts: That Which Was Taken cuz it's also too slow.

(Not sure if you're familiar with the storyline of Kamigawa, but the Spirits were at war with the mortal realm because Konda, Lord of Eiganjo stole their divinity for himself. That's what's being depicted on the card That Which Was Taken.)

I have a couple of those included or on a very close side board/chopping block/shoe-in position.
I actually have Tainted Isle in the deck, just not added here I believe (but I will look into that)... On that same note River of Tears should be an auto-include. Phenax is cool... But I don't picture running enough creatureish toughness to care for him that much (I'll see how test plays go though). Mind Funeral is nifty... Although I like taking a shot at all targets at once... Though I have seen how effective: "mill until x lands are revealed", can be. Keening Stone could be a strong alternative finisher, and I do own one so it will probably make an appearance again. I like Notion Thief alot and along the same vein I also really like Sygg, River Cutthroat although I can see the potential for massive backfire with both :) I HATE cyclonic rift even though it destroys people, I will think of it since I can use it then one of my low-cost selective discard spells to discard something nifty.
That Which Was Taken is nice for indestructible + hexproof or just protecting my other paper-thin stuff... but may be too slow in comparison to a more wincon-style card at similar speed - al'a: Keening Stone. I like some of those other cut cards too darn much though.

Just a few ideas without any justification:
Cards that I believe should be included: Cyclonic Rift, Dimir Doppelganger, Counterspell, Memory Erosion, Phenax, God of Deception, Mind Funeral, Keening Stone, Tainted Isle, Notion Thief, Clever Impersonator

They do, but they dont continue to be indestructible. That characteristic is granted to the permanent byThat Which Was Taken.
