Glassdust Hulk is better then ferropede, cuz of his cycling ability, 4 life also makes him harder to remove. You put him first, then any other artifact so he's unblockable.

Cast Out is also a very nice 1 mana cycling that would be super helpful either as a 4 cmc cast, or when it's returned to the battlefield (if the opponent has any way to prevent you from attacking)

Lay Claim for the same reasons as above.

Swap 2 darksteel plate for 2 Shield of Kaldra to prevent any kind of "exile all cards with the same name".

Well, when I think about it, Darksteel Forge might be even better than the 2 aboves.

Key to the City could be a nice way to use other artifact/enchantment creatures more useful to the deck than ferropede/glassdust, allowing them to be unblockable but also helping with the draw/discard you need.

I feel like blue would help a lot... possibly swaping red for blue.You could have more draw/discard while also having more defense... For instance, using low cmc creatures with draw/discard that are also usefull as cheap blockers, like Merfolk Looter and Thought Courier. Or even better : Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip who transforms in a planeswalker with a nice defensive ability and a way to cast Open the Vaults from your graveyard (cuz its so easy to just make you discard your only win condition).

Blue also let you use Izzet Charm with all 3 choices perfect for the deck, and Ideas Unbound.

Good Luck ;)

yetiz, if I were picking replacements I would probably grab Thought Courier over Augur of Bolas. The reason being that Augur of Bolas only grabs instants and sorceries while Thought Courier offers more filter. Another option would be Runechanter's Pike.

The reason that Aberrant Researcher  Flip is still there is largely lore based.

Why Enclave Cryptologist? Just for the additional looter? Or because of his level 3? Thought Courier is probably better if you just want a looter.

I'm not certain, but your land count seems maybe a little high for the amount of filtering you have. I'd bet you could drop it down to around 21-22 with no issue.

Jori En Madness tech. How did I not see this.

Cast your discard spell, then cast the madness, tadaa draw a card. On each turn. Brilliant.

In the meantime, I might consider some means of instant-speed discard. Maybe Dangerous Wager, Thirst for Knowledge, Kolaghan's Command, or Izzet Charm. Or even some looters: Thought Courier or Insolent Neonate. Yeah Flooting is really good but you could also just do all the things on the other person's turn. Instead of Big Game Hunter you might consider Dark Withering or Murderous Compulsion (oh so flavorful). Lastly I guess I might consider the curve, the spike on and is a bit steep.

Holy shit I would play this deck in a heartbeat.

@ Fieldsweeper, again Abrupt Decay. If the opponent gets more redundancey than I do, then they might win, if I get more redundancy then I win at that point. I am more likely to draw more cards than most other decks in modern however. And as for Thought Courier yes I wouldn't mind a single Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip in See Beyond's place, it's just that See Beyond gets me two cards right away, and Vryn's Prod is something I would be more more likely to side in for resilience, just like the 1x Snapcaster Mage in SB.
If we ever get a 1 -drop Merfolk Looter-type card, I would rather run that than even run Vryn's Prodigy.

@zZAZz Thanks :D Gory-bros for life lol

Nice man!

Never heard of Gigapede.

I always wonder why people use so often Aquamoeba instead of Thought Courier or Merfolk Looter or Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip
