Thanks for the suggestions, Aiding, it's much appreciated.

I actually think Contraband Kingpin is pretty important for the deck to be able to deal with aggro; as a 1/4 it can block basically all of the aggressive creature and most of them even when boosted by an Anthem effect and it doesn't just die to Lightning Bolt.

Similarly, I think you're underestimating Crystal Shard; it does a lot. It sort of blanks one of the opponent's lands, saves my creatures from removal or chump blocks, fulfils the requirement for revolt on Vengeful Rebel and gets repeated ETB triggers out of my creatures, which is important for grinding out victory in long games in a way that Vapor Snag can't replicate. That being said, I do think that 4 of them was too many, given how clunky they are in multiples.

Smother is a good suggestion, although I do think it's important to be able to kill higher CMC creatures because reanimator and Cloudpost decks are common occurrences, so I'll try out a split of Smother and Victim.

Bad River is almost strictly better than Evolving Wilds in the deck since it can fetch Watery Grave and they both give access to the mana the turn after they're played.

Skullclamp is banned in Legacy.

Wings of Velis Vel and Cairn Wanderer don't seem better than anything I'm already running as, respectively, a middling combat trick and a 4/4 for 5 that will occasionally have deathtouch/lifelink.

Servo Schematic over/with the Cogworker's Puzzleknot and Pia's Revolution over Dhund Operative would be my first two adds, then I'd consider Ornithopter over Implement of Malice. I'd also take out Embraal Gear-Smasher since you can only use him once per turn, and instead I'd put in something like Fatal Push or Vengeful Rebel. Or maybe Fling if you're feeling reckless. Ravenous Intruder also comes to mind.

Your sideboard should be 15 cards that help you in various weaker matchups. Except for Uncaged Fury, I think those other cards are too situational. Try Radiant Flames, Onward, or more removal (Unlicensed Disintegration is the best of its kind) instead of the Implement and some of those others.

Love the original deck idea! +1

Noteable changes after testing and with the removal of Guardian from the format. main objective was to lower the curve and streamline some of the clunkier peices.

2x Felidar Guardian replaced with last of the play-set of Aviary Mechanic less useful but similar utility at a lower cost... also mechanic is not banned

4x Fairgrounds Warden rebalanced to 1 warden and 3x Vengeful Rebel while warden does still have some utility and may be more value on first cast the rebel feels strictly better in most scenarios triggering his own revolt on flicker.

4x Hidden Stockpile replaced with 4x Thraben Inspector I wanted stockpile to be better than it was, you really need 2 of them to be worth it and the deck has no card draw to get there, inspector gives a recurring card draw effect and has immediate board presence and lower cmc.

2x Subjugator Angel replaced with 2x Thought-Knot Seer, Angel interaction was cute but slow and unreliable, Seer lowers the cure and provides an effect thats always relevant.

Manabase also needs to be reworked want at least 8 colorless sources to make sure displacer is online and seer can be cast on turn 4

Instead of Vengeful Rebel i'd look at Syndicate Trafficker It is a a cheap sacrifice outlet that can go very big and is hard to remove without exiles.

BlaineTog Thank you for your comment! It really help me out! So my decision for now is to remove Vengeful Rebel completely and add one more Grasp of Darkness and Murder or Transgress the Mind that depends on situation i guess. Then i would cut down one Syndicate Trafficker so i can have one more Metallic Mimic. After that i though that i could add Gonti, Lord of Luxury or something like Ironclad Revolutionary to have one of the big creatures with big attack number, but i think that theres no place for them.

Hey USSLego! Thanks for the excellent suggestions. I did not even know of Vengeful Rebel existence until now, but I think he might be decent removal or sideboard worthy at least. Unfortunately, Fatal Push is a bit too pricy for my taste, but good suggestion all the same. Thanks! sincerely, captain_Pugsley

Have you considered Vengeful Rebel? Also Fatal Push is good, but if sticking to a budget is a priority you might shy away from it.

Love Gonti, play him a lot myself. Been also trying Vengeful Rebel and Aethergeode Miner. But people just kill the miner before you can attack and blink it. And otherwise it's hard to trigger the rebel without also having tons of Renegade Map and such. And other times, it just doesn't have a target, especially early. I'd suggest dropping to 2x rebels. Harsh Scrutiny can also be hit or miss. It can be great turn one, but aweful later in the game, or against light creature decks. I've moved mine to the sideboard. Fatal Push would be great replacements as well as the other removal you mentioned. Hope that helps.
