You forgot about All Is Dust :P

Really though, it's a leftover from when I used to run way more Eldrazi. I keep it around mainly because, as a combo deck in colorless, I'll take any tutor effect I can get. I'm not kidding when I say that Voltaic Construct is the single most important card in the 99, and being able to search it up has won me the game enough times that I'm really hesitant to cut Eye.

Do you have any infinite mana outlets? You could add Voltaic Construct and Basalt Monolith. Using Karn to turn the monolith into a creature, you can tap it for 3 and Untap it for 2, with the construct. I don't knowvof any colorless infinite mana sinks beside Walking Ballista.I guess maybe Dark Depths, but that probably won't fit in a budget deck.

Neotrup on Synery prevents Combo?

Hexproof granted by Padeem, Consul of Innovation does not stop you from targeting Voltaic Construct, it only stops your opponent from targeting it. Shroud granted by Lightning Greaves would prevent you from targeting Voltaic Construct, if you needed to equip them to give haste, however, you can equip them to something else so you can target it again.

Also, Padeem, Consul of Innovation doesn't need Lightning Greaves if you have Mycosynth Lattice on the battlefield, as Padeem will grant himself hexproof, as he will be an Artifact.

nibsey on Synery prevents Combo?

I love the following synergy in an artifact heavy deck, especially if Mycosynth Lattice comes out too

Padeem, Consul of Innovation + Lightning Greaves

Does Padeem prevent Voltaic Construct interacting with Grim Monolith?

Karn, Silver Golem + Grim Monolith + Voltaic Construct

Therefore my combo above no longer works?

Many thanks, Nibsey

I'm going to suggest you change this completely, here it goes! :)

Golems. Big golems. Go golem tribal like Altar Golem, Colossus of Sardia, Platinum Emperion, Phyrexian Colossus, Mage-Ring Responder, Colossus of Akros, etc.

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!

A fun twist would be to have Bosh, Iron Golem out + Hijack, etc + Liquimetal Coating/Silverskin Armor to fling any of their creatures back into their faces.

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.

Yeah, I'm with Lilbrudder on the ramp there. Orzhov Signet is missing, and the talismans.

For the cuts, maybe you could cut one of the boots. And Lim-Dul's Vault doesn't put you the card you want in your hand. It's like a more expensive and more damaging Vampiric Tutor. Soul of New Phyrexia has never been useful enough to me. Scourglass is a non-bo with Mycosynth Lattice. Caltrops could also be cutted, except if you putted it in for a local metagame answer (facing too many token players?).

One more: Voltaic Construct can make infinite mana with an animated Gilded Lotus or Thran Dynamo. A bit narrow, but fun hehe.
