Tuktuk the Explorer Discussion

You should probably cut "Assemble the Legion" it won't do enough for you and has cmc 5. While indestructible will protect you from damage effects it doesn't help against -n/-n spells or counters. You probably want some extra removal or disruption outside of "Lightning Helix" and "Blasphemous Act"
Rift Bolt is budget friendly, Deflecting Palm and Searing Blood are worth considering. Spark Trooper and Tuktuk the Explorer are fun, though what you probably need is more 1 drops, maybe Grim Lavamancer...

I'm going to suggest you change this completely, here it goes! :)
But a weakness is many do not untap...but wait! Artifacts like Magewright's Stone, Voltaic Construct, Thousand-Year Elixir, Clock of Omens, Voltaic Key, etc. do just that. More fun though can be had with Threaten effects that you can use either on opponents' stuff or to untap your own. Interactive decks few!
And there's lots of fun utility golems to abuse. Ancestral Statue can bounce a big guy who attacked and just recast cheaply due to Rakdos' ability. Solemn Simulacrum is a staple. Beast of Burden takes advantage of token decks. Glass Golem's art looks wicked ;). Precursor Golem can add in some 1-shot draw spells like Crimson Wisps to draw a ton if lucky. Sundering Titan for fun control.
Feldon of the Third Path, Daretti, Scrap Servant, Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient, Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer, Tuktuk the Explorer, and Urabrask the Hidden are all legendaries that play nicely with a theme like this I think.
So keep your burn/damage to activate Rakdos' ability, add some haste enabler like Fervor so your golems can attack upon entering, include fun enchantments like Blood Mist, Flameshadow Conjuring, and Mana Echoes.

As neat of a card as AEther Membrane is, I say sideboard it for a playset of Exquisite Firecraft. This lets you hose combo/control decks that run very little creatures as it can't be countered under a normal situation in this deck. Cut Tuktuk the Explorer, every deck in modern can kill or even exile his first form, the 5/5 that results isn't much of a payoff from turn 3. I say in place of him and two copies of Chandra's Phoenix run a playset of Spark Elemental. He is a Lightning Bolt slapped onto a creature. Since you're going on a mixed creature build of a burn deck Monastery Swiftspear is a powerful staple of burn decks that can get out of control. Brute Force optionally can be replaced with Titan's Strength for card advantage. Temur Battle Rage or Assault Strobe can combo with monastery swiftspear to pull off some turn 3-4 kills.

Tuktuk the Explorer is a good option for playing against mass removal.

Why no Tuktuk the Explorer? Surely including him in the deck and having Zada destroy his artifact token would get you the flavor win?
