Night Market Lookout should be a 4 of, so should Scrapheap Scrounger and Weldfast Engineer Inventor's Apprentice. Cut it back to 22 lands, aggressive decks can run a little less. Bump it up to 4 Unlicensed Disintegration and Built to Smash. Get 4 Fleetwheel Cruiser and run them in place of the other vehicles you have 2 of each of. Then replace the last 2 artifacts with Skysovereign, Consul Flagship. Pia Nalaar would be good in here too. Also add one more solid piece of removal, Never / Return and Hour of Glory are a little more budget friendly than Fatal Push and Vraska's Contempt, Lightning Strike and Abrade are really good too. Trim it down to 60 cards using 4 of each of the cards I mentioned other than the sky sovereigns and the deck will be pretty consistent. Sideboard should be like 3 each of Sentinel Totem Duress Lay Bare the Heart By Force and Shock. This deck should be super fast this way, and it will help that you curve is lower, the only other upgrade would be to replace Untethered Express with Aethersphere Harvester or Heart of Kiran. Hope it works well for you.

-3 Untethered Express

-1 Liliana, Death's Majesty

-4 Fragmentize

-3 Bone Picker

-4 Wayward Servant

+1 Plague Belcher

+1 Gifted Aetherborn

+4 Dread Wanderer

+4 Binding Mummy

+2 Cast Out or Vraska's Contempt

+3 Dire Fleet Hoarder

Untethered is just bad, especially in a deck that isn't producing 1/1 tokens to crew the artifact.

Liliana, Death's Masjesty is a good card, but she works out better in re-animator style decks.

Fragmentize is a sideboard card. Cast Out / Vraska's Contempt are better all-around cards that can deal with planeswalkers and Scarab God.

Bonepicker is only a Turn 3 play at the earliest for you, as long as you Walk the Plank. Which implies you also have 3 black mana Turn 3.

Wayward Servant is good, but its mana intensive and Binding Mummy works out better for pushing damage.

Plague Belcher, Gifted Aetherborn, and Dread Wanderer are all too good not to run 4 in any black aggro deck. Its important to note that Plague Belcher can stick the negative counters on himself to prevent being blown out by removal.

Dire Fleet Hoarder is the only card recommendation I had slight hesitations about making. You are playing lots of 5 drops, so an early blocker/attacker who translates into an earlier Liliana's Mastery might not be the worst idea.

Hey, cool deck.

I suggest Gideon, Martial Paragon he's budget from the Amonkhet Planeswalker deck. He goes very well with the Vehicle strategy with Dwarves and Depala; being able to crew Vehicles for the turn then untap all creatures who crewed and pump both creatures and Vehicles.

Conqueror's Galleon  Flip is a new Vehicle from Ixalan which is easy to flip here and Foothold gives you a lot of nice options for a land. Untethered Express is another good Vehicle.

Duergar Hedge-Mage is a good Dwarf. He's a like a pseudo Reclamation Sage for Dwarves.

(in addition to my other comment) You also have 0 energy use. So Aether Hub is worthless here, i'd swap it for 4 Botanical Sanctum instead. I'd also add in 3 or 4 Unclaimed Territory, if you follow the previous comment, all of the creatures will be constructs, so having extra mana fixing on top of that will be fantastic. Take out all of your Prophetic Prisms and add in 2 Lifecrafter's Bestiary and 2 Skysovereign, Consul Flagship, you'll have the scry and card draw off of lifecrafter which will make the prism worthless and it's only a 1$ rare, so it'll work great. I'd also take out the random Untethered Express and put in another Blossoming Defense, maybe even another Verdurous Gearhulk. Blossoming defense escpecially as in the early game that's an extra 4, 6 damage maybe? and even good against blockers.

Like the concept, but needs major tweeking imo.

I was thinking about possible 3-drops (just to smooth the curve a little) and was wondering if you've looked at Fell Flagship yet. I think it's worse on an empty board than Untethered Express (since Siren Stormtamer can't Crew it alone) but it seems like it'd be very good (on both offense and defense) in every other case. Not sure if it's better than Crazy Train though ... may come down to how often you almost win via Pirate damage/just barely lose to opposing Creature damage vs. how often Train runs away with the game.

I'm not sure you even need the Arcane Adaptation, since Herald of Secret Streams works for all "Creatures you control ...".

Walking Ballista, Verdurous Gearhulk, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, and Bristling Hydra just got better too ...

Also interesting is how very much the Untethered Express now looks like a Dinosaur ...

OK, here's whatcha do.

Play Arcane Adaptation and choose "Merfolk".

Play Herald of Secret Streams.

Play Untethered Express.

Use the Merfolk to Crew the Express
