Visionary Augmenter Discussion

What I did differently is instead of Merfolk Branchwalker; I used Champion of Wits since we do want to find our synergy pieces early and often, and I think Champion of Wits does it much better than Merfolk Branchwalker (Bonus points for being able to cast Champion of Wits when we cast Sram's Expertise). Also it's a great late game mana-sink for its Eternalize ability since ideally we have tons of mana in the mid to late game anyway.
I'm a bit iffy on the Inspiring Statuary; in my testing, the Gaea's Cradle impression of Growing Rites of Itlimoc is enough ramp; but wanted to know how essential you think it is to the deck? As it is I am running zero copies of Inspiring Statuary and have opted for Sunscourge Champion for more beatdown and much needed gain life against aggressive decks. The 3 drop slot for a creature is very optimal for what the deck wants to do; as generally on turn 4 the deck wants to cast Sram's Expertise into Growing Rites of Itlimoc; so given additional creatures casted before that turn, gives us more wiggle room for Growing Rites of Itlimoc to actually flip; and even more mana once it does.
I'm also on the ropes on Visionary Augmenter as it's just terrible on its own, and is really only there to flip Growing Rites of Itlimoc and I think we can play something else in that slot? I am thinking of playing 2-3 copies of Cast Out
As it is I am not sold on the Walking Ballista game-plan of the deck and currently stumped on better finishers, currently I am using God-Pharaoh's Gift in its place but not entirely sold that it is the correct card for that slot.
Would love to hear more of your thoughts on this; as I think it can potentially be a great (fun) deck

I run a servo deck myself... it's been through a number of iterations, but I'd say that Hidden Stockpile is a must.
Anointed Procession also works rather nicely with servo generation.
Battle at the Bridge is a great spell in artifact based decks, as it can kill indestructible creatures, and has life gain.
As you don't seem to have any Concealed Courtyard, you might want to consider adding Evolving Wilds (triggers Hidden Stockpile) and/or Renegade Map (triggers Hidden Stockpile and Marionette Master, and can be used for improvise) to help with mana-fixing.
Another card you may want to consider is Herald of Anguish... if you can create servos quick enough, you can get him out quite early in the game (turn 4 is my best)... having a strong flyer is handy, and his abilities can really pressure your opponent.

okay, wow, I like this general idea for a deck. Nice Job! The biggest problem I see is that you have a lot of cards that synergize nicely with token decks, without including much token generation itself. Although things like Bone Picker is SUPER satisfying if you can cast it for one black mana, it doesn't make any tokens itself, which is sorta the point with zulaport tokens decks. Yahenni, Undying Partisan and Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim are both great sac outlets, I might add one or two more of them for consistency, unless you find you are drawing them enough (you wanna make sure you can kill off your tokens anytime so a board wipe or certain spot removal doesn't ruin your plan entirely)Anointer Priest provides value with tokens, but i think the extra life she gives you isn't worth the efficiency you could be getting with other cards, not to mention her embalm cost is pretty expensive for it's value. (Maybe try Pious Evangel Flip in her place if you like the life as I think his flip is sort of like a Zulaport CutthroatNext you need some better token generation. Things that make your board really wide really fast. Servo Exhibition Sram's Expertise Angel of Invention even Visionary Augmenter for budget. This should increase your consistency in token generation much more. And then once that is reliable you can worry about proper removal. lemme know if this helped, I like these kind of concepts so I'll try and keep in touch with this one if you find it becomes more consistent!

You're probably a couple lands short with all high CMC cards. I recommend going up to at least 22 plains. You also want more mana to activate Oketra's token generator.
Supply Caravan feels like a stretch; if you need the big body, I'd recommend Felidar Sovereign to go along with the cats. If you need the token bodies, Angel of Invention is the same CMC as Caravan with double the tokens and +1/+1 for all your creatures. Any of the other fabricate creatures from Kaladesh would also give you something similar to Caravan. Glint-Sleeve Artisan could fill out your three-drop creature spot while giving you a Servo token; Propeller Pioneer is a 4-drop that will give you a flying body and also a Servo; and Visionary Augmenter can give you two Servos. Plus all the fabricated servos would trigger your Anointed Procession.
