Legendary Artifact — Vehicle
Whenever Weatherlight deals combat damage to a player, look at the top five cards of your library. You may reveal a historic card from among them and put it into your hand. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order. (Artifacts, legendaries, and Sagas are historic.)

FSims81 Thanks for your comment. Aviation Pioneer is certainly a card worth considering, my obvious point of comparison is Pia Nalaar so 3 CMC is not a completely bad deal. Initially they do the same, 3 mana, two bodies and the power difference is not relevant. My reasons for not including it are the following.
- a) It is not an artifact so it doesn't triggers Sai, Master Thopterist nor Traxos, Scourge of Kroog and if i ever add Weatherlight it can't be drawn.
- b) Its a 3-drop, and i'd choose to play Sai, Master Thopterist or Skyscanner over this any time. (The whole point of the deck is having Sai up and running)
- c) Its a bad top deck on late game (see B).
Again, thanks for your input.

Notably there is the intersection of the two, if you equip it to a crewed Weatherlight it has neither a color nor creature type so it will receive no bonus.

Deck needs to be updated with current state in paper.

@Onyxio I think the general consensus is that Weatherlight is not a great card, especially when compared to Heart of Kiran. It comes out 2 turns later and has to connect to give the benefit. Plus it doesn't have vigilance which makes Seal Away great against it.
@Bodyrocker89Liking the changes. I feel like Foundry Inspector would be better as a 3 or 2 of though. By the time you have the 3 mana to cast it you only need 1 more mana to be able to cast anything else in the deck and it won't help you cast an extra spell per turn that often. It's still not bad as a 3/2 that can crew Heart of Kiran on turn 3.
I really like Phyrexian Scriptures as it helps against anything using The Scarab God and/or God-Pharoah's Gift as a form of board clear and graveyard hate. You may even consider putting 1 more in the sideboard instead of Silent Gravestone. You can put it in against any creature deck that can match your board, or against God-Pharoah's Gift and The Scarab God decks...in other words I think it's more flexible than Silent Gravestone and specifically gives your deck more of an advantage in a lot of match ups. Though Silent Gravestone can be a lot better if you get it out on turn 1 against U/B since they can't counter it yet (but the chances of you having it in your opening hand are slim).
I may give the deck a try at some point before Metallic Mimic rotates. Though I think +2 Scrap Trawler, +1 Heart of Kiran, +1 Bomat Courier, and -4 Foundry Inspector could be something to try. I really like Scrap Trawler b/c Metallic Mimic and Heart of Kiran are both huge targets for removal and being able to 2 for 1 them is a lot of value.

Biismuth Yeah I think Heart of Kiran is a good sub for board the weatherlight, especially since Weatherlight does the same thing, plus gives you the added bonus of being a flying vehicle. I like that Wayward Swordtooth can be crew Heart, Weatherlight, or even Skysovereign, Consul Flagship, if you're interested in adding that card.
However, if you're gonna run more vehicles, you might want to figure out more ways to crew them, since right now Thrashing Brontodon and Swordtooth are your only creatures that can crew by themselves (unless you put in Aethersphere Harvester, which your elves can crew too). Creatures I'm thinking that might be good in this for crewing and just overall value are Jadelight Ranger, Rhonas the Indomitable, and Merfolk Branchwalker.

aqKetoz, I see what you’re saying. Lyra Dawnbringer can be good on her own, I was just saying that she is better in an angel deck. She is a strong card regardless. And YelmsLight, I was actually thinking of Weatherlight. Its second ability is essentially a repeated Board the Weatherlight. However, if the deck needs cheaper spells, Board the Weatherlight could also be good.

Playtested this, and on my first try it worked pretty well. I got a turn 2 Champion of the Flame, turn 3 Danita Capashen, Paragon, and turn 4 Weatherlight and Shield of the Realm. Turn 5 cast a Frenzied Rage and equipped the shield. Champion is now a 7/6 with a shielding effect, menace and trample, and attacked. Next turn got out Forebear's Blade making Champion a 10/7 with trample, vigilance, menace, and by this time, I am almost certainly going to win in the next few turns.
