Throne of Geth Discussion

Serpent Generator is in there to just get out poisonous creatures and work to feeding Throne of Geth. It's not imperative, but it's a good addition. I was thinking of putting in Thran Dynamo, Sol Ring, and Gilded Lotus in as Mana rocks.Throne of Geth is in there because I have a lot of artifact and artifact creatures to sac for it's ability to Proliferate in the event I'm not getting Contagion Clasp or Contagion Engine

Not sure how useful Throne of Geth or Serpent Generator are. Snake Cult Initiation also since almost all your creatures have infect already. Maybe put in a couple of BIG creatures to spring Tainted Strike on?
Hunted Horror, any number of demons or Dread. Drana, Liberator of Malakir works well with proliferate. One big eldrazi or even a big vehicle that could be crewed with your little guys just in case its not safe for you to attack with them.

Thanks flapjackwars for the suggestions. Let's discuss the ideas. Let me start by saying that this deck was built for a multi-player chaos environment. Speed isn't so much of a concern in my usual meta game. This deck was built more for endurance. At least that was the idea I was trying for.
Scrap Trawler and Pia's Revolution are in the deck to work in situation where someone has played Declaration of Naught naming my Commander. Yep, that has happened. So, in my view, I have 3 cards in my deck that recur artifacts for me instead of just one.
I've played Extruder in an artifact based deck before. It's ok. I thought about it for this deck. I guess I'm still on the fence about this one. I have the Bosh, Iron Golem, Krark-Clan Ironworks, Viscera Seer, Throne of Geth, and Trading Post for sacrifice outlets. Not sure if that is enough or the route I want to go with this deck. Ashnod's Altar is a good choice that I'm going swap out the Ironworks for. It does provide a wider range of sacrifice options.
In the maybe board I had before I posted this deck, I had the some of the cards you mentioned.
I cut the Time Sieve, which is a great card, because I felt that it painted too much of a target on me in table politics. It may still end up in the deck at some point. Not sure on this one. Tough choice for now. I'll probably have to play the deck some more to really get a feel for it.
I cut the Trinket Mage, Trophy Mage, and Treasure Mage because I didn't want this deck to really be about tutoring. Another reason I cut the tutor creatures was that I felt that they didn't syngerize with the +1 counters theme. I can't use them as Modular targets. They don't help as much once they are on the field except as blockers. And I can't recur them like I can with the other artifacts. Thopter Engineer suffers from some of the same problems. I like the 'artifacts gain haste' aspect, but I have Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch to provide haste. Exava gets seen by Marchesa where the Engineer does not. Pia and Kiran Nalaar, and Pia Nalaar are good cards but I just felt that they didn't syngerize as well as some of my other choices. They have the same sort of down sides that the tutor creatures do.
I didn't use the Sol Ring because I didn't think that I needed that kind of mana acceleration. Also, once I cut the Trinket Mage I didn't have a way of tutoring for it early enough in the game for it to be useful.
Marionette Master felt to mana costly for what it gave me when i first read it. Reading it again, it might fit. I'll have to think about that one for a while.
Treasure Keeper, Phyrexian Metamorph are really good cards that I overlooked. I am swapping the Cogwork Assembler for Phyrexian Metamorph based on your suggestions since it cost too much mana to make the copies with the Assembler. The Treasure Keeper is another card I'll need to think about for a bit. I like the free cast aspect. I'm not so fond of the reveal my deck to opponents aspect. Tough call.
I need to go through the new cards in Amonkhet to see what can fit into my EDH/Commander decks.

With the number of -1 -1 counters you are distributing I recommend adding more things with Proliferate than just Grim Affliction such as Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, Core Prowler, Spread the Sickness, and if you add artafafacts to sacrifice Throne of Geth. I would also ramp up the grave yard recursion. Phyrexian Reclamation can help you get your creatures back Really your strength is in numbers. I would also think that Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief might make a better general. she might as well read kill their biggest creature and attack for half lethal general damage.
Thanks for the up-vote. You will get mine when this is more efficient.

Also, I feel like Plaguemaw Beast is going to disappoint you: I've never gottan much use out of creatures with tap activated abilities. EDH is a wasteland of boardwipes and control, so far more often than not, it'll die before you get a chance to activate it. I'd recommend Throne of Geth instead. Or even Steady Progress. And definitely Clockspinning. MAYBE Gilder Bairn?? Your Mileage may vary.

Core Prowler seems good at proliferating.

Maaagic, thank you. I will use Larger Than Life as well as Predator's Strike and take out Thrummingbird and Throne of Geth. I was confused by what proliferate does. I thought it gave them a new poison counter for each one already there. Thanks!
