If you want 'fast and aggressive vehicles', you really can't do better than Heart of Kiran. It's also definitely worth going into white just to try and maximise your chances of getting a Toolcraft Exemplar out on turn one.

Bird? <--- If it's not 'you', ignore plz.

Seems solid, and my only concern is if you'll have the on turn one to cast Toolcraft Exemplar. I'd consider that 4th Aether Hub.

Beyond that, I don't see many holes... maybe Scavenger Grounds or Crook of Condemnation to combat The Scarab God or God-Pharaoh's Gift decks... Crook would at least let you pick stuff out so you don't lose your own scroungers or phoenixes.

I see that you kept the Spire of Industry... with Rivals of Ixalan Stone Quarry and Forsaken Sanctuary came back into standard. They're a little bit slow, but maybe adding in more dual lands from other sets will work too.

You have way too many one drops in this deck, It's more than the amount of three and four drops. Cut some of your one drops and try to make your mana curve look like it's a bell curve, not a cliff.

Fatal Push is still a thing, especially against merfolk decks. Unlicensed Disintegration is good and all, but the three mana that you would have to keep open to destroy one threat is not worth it at all. I'd say move those to the sideboard and replace them with Fatal Pushes.

You're also missing one main part of Mardu Vehicles, Aethersphere Harvester. The Harvester is a great easy crew that essentially gives you 3 life every time it attacks. I would swap it for your Veteran Motorists because although +1/+1 seems good, it is sort of insignificant in the long run.

I would definitely add two more Depala, Pilot Exemplar, maybe replacing two Bomat Couriers or one Bomat Courier and one Toolcraft Exemplar. I personally don't like having four copies of multiple one drops, it may seem like the deck will be fast but in reality it can really screw you over once you reach t3.

Take my comments into consideration, and have fun building!

Another nice deck, definitely worth a +1. The Rekindling Phoenix seems to be forced into the deck. Also, you're spreading yourself way too thin. Have 3-4 of the best cards, and drop the rest (cough cough sideboard). I would be running 4 Depala, Pilot Exemplars, as that is usually the most targetted card (for burn and destroy), and when I play my vehicle deck, my original Depala winds up dying mid-game. Since the deck is aggro, mana fixing in the early stages might be a problem, so I would suggest taking away two Plains and Mountains and replacing them with four Battlefield Forges. I would also run 4 Aether Hubs. I would also be running a playset of Toolcraft Exemplars. You seem to be low on win cons, such as Heart of Kiran. Gideon, Ally of Zendikar creates 2/2 crewers, and would allow you to capitalize on Cataclysmic Gearhulk's ability. Great deck, keep up the good work! Oh wait...I thought this was modern, not standard. Oh well...

Your aiming for a mono white deck with an artifact focus, so what about Toolcraft Exemplar, if you were running some 0 cost artifacts like Bone Saw or Accorder's Shield I'd suggest Glint Hawk. Also your not really taking advantage of casting cost reduction effect as your deck is cheap to cast... Maybe you could use Loxodon Gatekeeper to stall your opponent.

Part of me thinks this deck really wants Sram, Senior Edificer and maybe some vehicles because you don't want to be attacking with your creature based enablers.

I really like this build. The turn 3 Ghalta has really interested me ever since I saw the card - but it is hard to actually get. I was having a hard time in my builds consistently hitting an artifact for Toolcraft Exemplar, I think adding Scrapheap Scrounger is a great solution to that issue. Nice job.

Hey, looks good, but consider some manabase changes?

Adding 4x Inspiring Vantage and 4x Concealed Courtyard will really help the manabase. Currently there's too many black sources in the manabase compared to white which should be the primary color of the manabase because of Toolcraft Exemplar. Due to Veteran Motorist red is the second most important color with black as third.

Consider this manabase:

This manabase example the most important lands are 4 ofs, they're the only 4 ofs of the manabase because you want to draw them the most out of the other lands. The 8x fast lands: Vantage and Courtyard give you much needed speed at getting all three colors each ETB(enter the battlefield) untapped for the first three turns. Both can make turn one white for Toolcraft.

Good luck with your deck.
