Trash for Treasure Discussion

With all the artifacts you're running, I'd check out Trash for Treasure. Breath of Fury could net you several triggers from your Commander in a single turn as well. Fun build!

Ajani I have considered running. Reason being is cause at its worst, you keep a land tapped down. At its best, you keep the biggest thing or something with a strong tap ability (Ever do this on a Wellwisher? Feels good.). Issue I found is you likely won't use the minus, and the ult will really only deal with one person. Daretti I found to be last luster. Reason being, and this is just personal opinion, yes you will use him likely just for the first ability, but you don't have alot of synergy with any of the other cards. For my deck, I don't run alot of artifacts, so the likelihood of being able to Trash for Treasure something is slim to none, and slim is dead XD

Personally I plan to try and use Kaya, Ghost Assassin. She is currently in the mail to me, but I think she is pretty good :3

Daretti, Scrap Savant and Trash for Treasure seem good in this list.

Blinkmoth Well turns off Static Orb and Winter Orb during an opponent's end step, letting you untap normally.

What are your thoughts on Storage Matrix?

If you're running MLD, then Decree of Annihilation is worth considering. It's a bit more expensive than other MLD spells, but it's much harder to counter the cycling trigger.

If you're looking for more sweepers, Blasphemous Act is hard to beat for efficiency in most multiplayer games.

Staff of Domination isn't particularly mana-efficient, but it's extremely versatile, and combines with cards like Clock of Omens, Goblin Welder, and Metalworker to produce some interesting effects.

Everflowing Chalice is a mana rock I like in artifact-heavy decks, because it can come down on turn 2 to accelerate out a 4-cost commander, or it can come down on turn 6+ to act as a more expensive Thran Dynamo.

Hostility. Equip Bosh with shit, make use of the actual damage of his activated ability; consider Worldslayer, Basilisk Collar, Grafted Exoskeleton, Scythe of the Wretched, etc. Jalum Tome instead of your jay tome. Trash for Treasure just in case, maybe Scrap Mastery if you have a hard time ultimating Daretti or want more reanimation. Pariah's Shield equipped to stuffy doll is cool, but isn't worth it solely for the combo. Whispersilk Cloak instead of your prowlers helm. Braid of Fire. Deathrender, Skullclamp. Heartstone, Illusionist's Bracers, Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient. Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle.

If you need more sacks you can try Greater Gargadon for another win con. Chromatic Sphere does not give you a card when sacked for Atog, so maybe it should be better to use Ichor Wellspring or Mycosynth Wellspring instead. Krark-Clan Ironworks seems uncastable with 15 lands. One Foundry Inspector should be useful I think. Did you also consider using Trash for Treasure as card advantage? CMC 3 seems however too expensive for this deck.

I like the deck idea, but it seems a little mana heavy for a modern deck. If you want to make the deck competitive, I'd suggest adding smaller artifacts that offer card advantage even when sacrificed, like Chromatic Star. If this is more of a casual deck, you could also use cards like Act of Aggression or Kari Zev's Expertise to fuel your sacrifice outlets. If you're thinking about other possible cards, you could use Salvage Titan or Trash for Treasure? However, if you want to pay this in Modern, remember that Disciple of the Vault is not Modern legal. BR Artifact sacrifice is a fun deck type, even if it isn't mainstream, so I applaud your creativity.

There are only 56 cards in the maindeck. Also, what artifacts are you going to sacrifice to cast Trash for Treasure?

I don't know if you considered it, but you could always build a traditional red artifact deck instead of voltron but adding white for support. Using the cantrips like Chromatic Star, wheels and the red staples like Scrap Mastery, Trash for Treasure, Daretti, Scrap Savant with white adding Sun Titan, Refurbish, Open the Vaults, Faith's Reward etc.

I've had trouble getting a solid list refined, but with the new Paradox Engine it seems like it'd be a lot of fun. People might get annoyed with the long turns though. Anyways just throwing that out there if you end up not to liking voltron.
