Hey ho, if you agree and are still going, I'll add some more :

Freed from the Real + Bloom Tender for infinite mana

Isochron Scepter + Sundial of the Infinite + Final Fortune for infinite turns

Time Sieve + Thopter Assembly for infinite turns

Turntimber Ranger + Arcane Adaptation for infinite p/t and infinite tokens wolves (and ally)

Myr Retriever + Myr Retriever + Krark-Clan Ironworks for infinite ETB and ETG

Intruder Alarm + Presence of Gond + any creature for infinite token.

I might come back later if this list is still expanding. Feel free to reach me for any question or explanation if needed.

I have a Breya deck that also runs Salvaging Station , some cards I've included that work really well with it are Nihil Spellbomb , Dispeller's Capsule and Executioner's Capsule .

Examples of other cards I would consider are Spine of Ish Sah , Sun Titan , and Anointed Procession . More specifically since you are running Thopter Assembly you might want to include Time Sieve as a dirty but effective combo. Also Revel in Riches has an interesting synergy with Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer , and that would also justify running Smothering Tithe (although I run it without the combo since it's just good in multi-player anyway).

My deck is quite different from yours so I'll link it in case you find some cards that might interest you: The Machine Girl.

Double Strike/Flying sound good. I'll also consider Thopter Assembly . I'm straying away from Arcane Adaptation , Conspiracy , and Xenograft to focus on aggro ninja tribal. Working on finding some good stuff to do that.

Etrata, the Silencer is good. I didn't notice the Ninjutsu combo with her to keep her from being shuffled. In regards to Nightveil Specter , I originally had Thief of Sanity and Gonti, Lord of Luxury since they do similar things. However, I decided to cut them. I don't particularly see the advantage of Nightveil Predator . A single hexproof creature doesn't change much, and it seems like I could get Flying/Deathtouch from a cheaper source.

Double strike and flying works well with ninjas, sure it's not straight out unblockable but some evasion works well. Thopter Assembly can work since it can give you a bunch of enablers to combo off but it is a bit slow.

Etrata, the Silencer works well too and you can ninjutsu her before her shuffle effect triggers. Nightveil Specter and Nightveil Predator are amazing too.

Also you can run Conspiracy and Xenograft are good also to make your dudes ninjas along with Arcane so you can keep it tribal

Not to mention other effects that create artifact tokens or artifact creature tokens, and since it's stated as "Tap an untapped artifact" you can tap them as though they had haste. For example, Thopter Assembly becomes "Create 5 artifact tokens with ": Add ". This also isn't mentioning things becoming artifacts using Mycosynth Lattice .

Sharding Sphinx , Thopter Assembly and Whirler Rogue will all give you some Thopter tokens to have as flying fodder.

Hangarback Walker will make a bunch of artifact tokens on death.

Sai, Master Thopterist will get you a Thopter each time you cast an artifact spell.

Cultivator of Blades and Marionette Master both make servo tokens and have some nice added effects on them.

Alright hkhssweiss, so I have updated and edited my deck a bit, and I wanted to see what you thought. Here are the cards I took out:

And these are the cards I put in:

Anyway, if you could tell me what you think, that would be great. And again, thanks for all of your help hkhssweiss!

Yeah I would cut those cards, as the main point of the deck by what you are doing so far is to play cards from your opponent. Having an artifact sub theme is good, but in the way in having mana and accelerating your boardstate. You can also add in a Master Transmuter to protect or cheat out your artifacts as well.

With paradox engine out on the field you can gain an incredible amount of mana, so I would focus on tutors as well as card advantage. Engines like Mystic Remora as well as Necropotence will be great, the latter being said though would require a good mana base to get the triple black efficiently. Cantrips are also good for filtering and card draw, some staples include Ponder , Preordain , Brainstorm for the basic one drop spells. If you don't like one shot cards than run more effects like Windfall to refill your hand.

Some additional cards that would be great for Sen are also cards like Delay , Remand , Unsubstantiate , Evacuation , Hurkyl's Recall , Snap . All of these types of cards allow you to remove threats and play them again when you take control of their hands.

For recursion based cards you also have cards like Argivian Find , Argivian Archaeologist , Hannah, Ship's Navigator, Faith's Reward in the case of people popping everything or preventative measures. You can also consider a subtheme of adding in planeswalker, as they are generally hard to deal with, and especially with the next set coming out, there are plenty of great choices to choose from.

Here are a list of cards you can consider cutting in my opinion:

Hope that helps!
