So I've been thinking about building Eggs (a.k.a. Sunnyside Up), and here's the list I have so far in my head:
159 VIEWS | IN 1 FOLDER
A few things I'm having trouble deciding:
Ghost Quarter vs. Flooded Strand: Ghost Quarter generates more mana with Faith's Reward, as well as the option of being used defensively vs. manlands or Tron. Flooded Strand offers a more consistent mana base.
How many copies of Whir of Invention and Reshape. Whir of Invention is especially easy to cast in the turns leading up to when you combo off because you can tap all your eggs to power out Krark-Clan Ironworks. Reshape runs into problems when you need to save eggs and don't want to sacrifice them, even if it means powering out Lotus Bloom.
Number of win conditions. Right now, I'm just using Codex Shredder to go infinite with Faith's Reward. There's the option of Bitter Ordeal and Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. I'm not really a fan of Banefire in Eggs because it doesn't do much on its own.
Elsewhere Flask, Everflowing Chalice, Prophetic Prism, and Thoughtcast are Eggs staples, but I didn't have room in this build. Thoughts on any of these? Worth cutting some cards to make room? Thoughtcast and Prophetic Prism are especially good.

Hope of Ghirapur: Ok, I see what you're trying to do now. I'm not sure if it's the best version of what this deck could be, but I see it. The ghost quarters and HoG are meant to stall tron, storm to an extent, titan shift, etc. I still think it would be situated somewhat better in the sideboard but alright.
Inkmoth Nexus: hmm you're completely right about that. I think I simply misread your list.
Thoughtcast: I guess if you're going for more of a stall strategy then it is a better choice. It probably increases your chances of increasing a later round win than having Galvanic Blast in the main, but 4 just feels like too much to me.

why Hope of Ghirapur?
its just a play style thing mainly, it can stall alot of decks not just control such as tron for example, no Expedition Map will buy you 1 full turn in a turn 4 win deck
why Inkmoth Nexus?
as for Thoughtcast
ive tried i would say most if not all artifact based draw card and just settled on Thoughtcast as it just lands more often.
and finally Ensoul Artifact
you are very mush right about the risks but to hit turn 2 for 5 damage cant be looked down at even meta affinity finds it hard 2 hit that hard that fast

Nice deck! I have a similar one on my profile, basically a budget version of affinity. I do have a few disagreements with some of your choices here though. First of which is including Hope of Ghirapur in the main. You say that it is necessary versus control, which it may be, but then why not just include it in your sideboard to bring in against control. With 4 in the the main you have a creature that does next to nothing against aggro or midrange, and is sometimes good against combo but not in the way you'd be using it just to resolve an ensoul. Also it is legendary, meaning having multiple in your opening hand is incredibly detrimental to your artifact count if you just plan on saccing one straight away. Another strange inclusion is Inkmoth Nexus. Without Arcbound Ravager to complete the combo, you'll need quite a few turns to get an infect kill. And it doesn't count as an artifact in its unactivated form so I would probably replace that with either Blinkmoth Nexus or another artifact creature such as Master of Etherium or Signal Pest if you wish to lower your curve. I also prefer running Bomat Courier as card advantage over Thoughtcast because it ups your artifact count, having it in your opening hand is a much better feeling, and it has much higher upside. I'm also not so hot on Ensoul Artifact in general. It has huge potential to be 2-for-1ed, even on a Darksteel Citadel. It doesn't up your artifact count either. Anyway, those are just my longwinded opinions.

I had Tezzeret's Gambit in the main originally, but Thoughtcast always seemed to be available to cast sooner. I might try them again now that the deck has changed. I like Surge Node; it probably has a spot here, but I'm concerned that Voltaic Key won't do enough without Surge Node in play. All really good ideas though, and absolutely worth testing; thanks for the suggestions!
