What do you guys think of Breakneck Rider  Flip because of his flip? Would that be worth it in the place of Toolcraft Exemplar and a Veteran Motorist?

Know what this deck needs to get outta control quick? Toolcraft Exemplar.

Turn 1 Toolcraft Exemplar

Turn 2 Sigarda's Aid drop Cathar's Shield then attach Stitcher's Graft swing for 6 turn 2

Pretty sweet opening play if you can pull it off

freddi why aren't you splashing for Toolcraft Exemplar in your 4c version? It crews HoK, provides 3 power T1, it is an amazing play overall.

I like the idea of adding him, but I can't figure out what to take out for him. I usually get to 4 mana by turn 3 because of my mana dorks, and he's a nice blocker but 3 is kinda the most common amount of power with things like Toolcraft Exemplar and Scrapheap Scrounger and he doesn't have reach so the 2 most likely replacements for Smuggler's Copter (Heart of Kiran and Aethersphere Harvester) just fly over him.

pantsbot I'm happy that you like the deck. I plan to take this deck to FNM after AER release, and my playtesting says this deck will do well.

It has never actually been that you have to crew vehicles before combat to my knowledge. The combat phase consists of beginning of combat, assign attackers, assign blockers, damage, and end of combat (Shown here on the Wizards' webpage). At the beginning of combat all combat triggers are put on the stack in turn order starting with the active player and in the order the controlling player chooses to put them on the stack. If you let that stack resolve you will have 2x 3/2 Toolcraft Exemplars. Still in the beginning of combat step, before declaring attackers you may activate abilities and play spells that can be played at instant speed (such as crew). You then crew your Consulate Dreadnought with the 2x 3/2 Toolcraft Exemplars. Move to assign attackers and assign Consulate Dreadnought as attacking.

I admit that I may be wrong as I have not spent extensive time with vehicles, but this is my understanding.

As tremblayk19 said, the Aradara Express is not really at the forefront of vehicles. Heart of Kiran, Aethersphere Harvester, and Fleetwheel Cruiser are all fabulous drops that also curve out perfectly. Your deck seems like it wants to be aggro, but I see no 1-drop creatures. Something like Toolcraft Exemplar may be very good in this deck because of its low mana cost and ability to crew with 3 power when a vehicle is in play. Lastly, Stone Quarry, which only has "come into play tapped", can be replaced by one of my favorite elemental lands: Needle Spires.

Aric_Haldan on Boros Equipment with T3 Kill (Budget)

hi i was checking this one out because it was shown under similar decks from my Sram's Forge (boros aggro) and i just wanted to say that i think Sram, Senior Edificer will be great card to add when Aether Revolt comes out. Also i have personally found Stone Haven Outfitter to be fairly fast especially when combined with Inventor's Goggles which also work well with Inventor's Apprentice and Toolcraft Exemplar, i personally think he'd be a better fit than Kor Bladewhirl because it's also a base 2/2, it gives potential card draw and it strengthens any creatures who have been equipped and first strike will only be good against other decks that want to go wide. another decent addition from AER would be Kari Zev, Skyship Raider.

Well damn, I don't wanna be the bearer of bad news!

A lot of people use Servo/Artifact decks, specifically ones that benefit from Artifacts/Creatures coming into play. Usually using Underhanded Designs. But I don't see many people using Red. Mostly b/w, and g/w.

Although I haven't seen anyone using the flickering effect.

Here, let me redeem myself with suggestions:Master Trinketeer
Chief of the Foundry
Toolcraft Exemplar
Visionary Augmenter

Think that's all I got atm. One of the first 2 would defiantly help out.

Oh and I just thought of something else, Panharmonicon would cause your creatures with fabricate to trigger twice, making double the Servos, thus doubling fireweavers effect which is already doubled from Panharmonicon!

As The7thBobba once told me when I said I wanted to build a w/g lifegain but didn't know because everyone does it. He said something along the lines of "fuck what everyone else does and build what you want!". (Not exact words, but close enough for government work).
