Veteran Motorist Discussion

May I suggest swapping out the Veteran Motorists with four Aethertorch Renegades? It keeps with the energy theme and is much more efficient since there's no vehicles for the Motorists to crew.

Veteran Motorist and Aethersphere Harvester definitely, if you ask me, but test it with a proxy deck. Or with a friend.

hullos, I think you're right, the scry on Veteran Motorist is very powerful and the fact that it is a 3/1 gives it good synergy with Cultivator's Caravan. I'll add a couple and increase as needed.

medozz, I'll keep Lupine Prototype in my sideboard, and try it once I get a chance to play against a friend. I went ahead and switched in Cathartic Reunion. I don't like the need to discard 2 cards, but I think I agree that the 3 card gain is far more valuable in the long run.

Additional Questions/Thoughts

Since Smuggler's Copter is banned and Heart of Kiran is at $9, would you suggest Aethersphere Harvester over Sky Skiff? It's, money wise, more expensive, but also extra for life link and a 3/5 instead of a 2/3 (while retaining Flying and Crew 1). I feel like it is a bit too slow, and doesn't work as well with Sram, Senior Edificer.

Additionally, would you suggest keeping Renegade Tactics or maybe just adding a couple more Veteran Motorists?

Thanks for the input!

Agree with hullos. Veteran Motorist with the scry and high power is your best friend. Lupine Prototype is amazing in this kind of decks. I know it makes not rotation proof but helps a lot. I would cut a few Modifications for those cards.

Also, consdier Cathartic Reunion instead of Tormenting Voice.

i think if you are looking for some creatures the best one is Veteran Motorist for the scry and the crew buff.

i mean you most likely should have 60 cards at most, but if this is a casual deck than it does not matter. i also have no idea why you have lands that make other colors unless i'm missing something. the only other lands besides plains is maybe Shefet Dunes. but if you want to use the other lands you could splash red for a bunch more dwarves most notably Veteran Motorist and Depala, Pilot Exemplar these creatures give your deck a ton more power.

~Just my thoughts, not inciting any changes needed.~~

Im running a very similar list to this one. I have made a few changes though. I've been playing this deck for a long time now. With the release of Hour of Devastation, I've move away from Archangel Avacyn  Flip for Glorybringer due to avacyn not being able to say anything from HOD removing indestructible. I've also ditched Pia for Depala, Pilot Exemplar. Depala pumps your tool crafts and vehicles, plus if you attack with her you get sudo scry's/gas if mana open.

I have cut out the Walking Ballista completely from my list for Veteran Motorist. This was due to the meta around my LGS being alot of control. If you can get a heart and a motorist on the field early control turns into a squishy ball.

All in all I love playing this deck and this list looks right on the money. +1 from me.I was playing R/G ramp for 2 weeks and I ended up putting this back together because of my love for it.

Just to fit into the whole theme of dwarf-vehicle, look into Toolcraft Exemplar, an early game guy that can prove to be a huge threat seeing as you get many artifacts on the battlefield. Also, Veteran Motorist can be a huge help I think.
