remeiko my only issue with steelshaper's is that we still have to cast and pay for equip costs on the equipment.With Quest, yes its slower but it plays the equipment AND equips it at the cost of needing set up and slower. Trophy Mage to grab swords gives us more utility with grabs such as Crucible of Worlds to set up a potential Crucible of Worlds + Ghost Quarter soft-Lock or Ensnaring Bridge post-board (though we still have to dump our hand to enable bridge). Another benefit of the Trophy Mage is that it gives us something to equip up if need be. With a fairly low creature count, the possibility to not have something to suit up for battle is a real thing so its just another body. It could be incorrect to not run steelshaper's in some number but time will tell as I only just ordered the missing cards yesterday and will be playing my first games with the deck on Thursday if all goes well with the shipping. This is by no means a set in stone perfected list.

Gamerpg04 I updated the list with quests and batterskull in the side and What I'd replace them with. The changes make this feel more tempo than control now. The Caw Blade lists I looked at only seemed to play 8 creatures. (4 Squad Hawk and 4 Stoneforge) and seemed to rely more on planeswalkers ending the game so I tried to keep that intact with ways to stall. I was fighting with myself between Serum Visions or Mana Leaks and I ultimately decided on serum visions as it is more stuff to do on turn one as well as helping prevent us from drawing into our swords indtead of getting them to our hand off of our Trophy Mages. I even considered going up to the full playset of trophy mages instead of one of the wall of omens. Another consideration I had was a one of Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip

edit: the more i Look at it I like the extra mage and jace in the wall of omens place so updated the list

Actually in this case far from it. Trophy Mage would only grab Basalt Monolith or Commander's Sphere while Trinket Mage gets Sol Ring, Mana Vault or Altar of the Brood which are all combo pieces.

Note that the card says CMC 3, not 3 or lower ;)

Trophy Mage is strictly better than Trinket Mage right?

Cmc is converted mana cost. Trophy Mage only grabs artifacts that cost exactly 3 mana to cast. Whether or not you have Panharmonicon out Trophy Mage can't grab anything out of your deck.

Why do you have Trophy Mage in the deck with no cmc 3 artifacts? Glint-Nest Crane would be much better.

It looks to me that Trophy Mage doesn't summon in any of the crucial combo-starting artifacts from this deck. I'd suggest replacing maybe two of her, as well as a Foundry Inspector, with Reverse Engineer, Consulate Turret, or maybe even Fabrication Module.
