Hi Wolf0312, thanks for stopping by and thanks for the suggestions. Sarkhan Vol looks right at home for that purpose, and still fits the budget theme for a planeswalker. I might pass on Zealous Conscripts though, it's a lot of mana for a once off effect and only a 3/3. Liliana Vess would fit nicely in here too, lots to think about with what to remove!

Nice deck. I do have a few suggestions for adds and cuts.

Adds:

Stratus Dancer - good counterspell on a body that stops counter battles and a Cloudstone combo piece.

Wild Cantor / Exploration - T2 Animar.

Zealous Conscripts - I'd run this over Pestermite even at 5 mana vs. 3. Zealous is good without Kiki while Pestermite becomes garbage imo.

Sakura-Tribe Elder - Over Wood Elves (or in addition).

Fblthp, the Lost - Cloudstone Curio doesn't target. This guy is an excellent cantrip.

Equilibrium - Over Deadeye. Less mana to bounce, harder permanent type to remove, and can be used to bounce opponents stuff (extra fun with Gilded Drake ).

Food Chain - Keeps those game ending turns going similar to Earthcraft.

Cuts:

Pestermite - See Zealous Conscripts.

Consecrated Sphinx - Requires you to pass turn to get value. You want your draw here to be a result of your actions and on your turn.

Fauna Shaman - You aren't running haste enablers here. Great card but it will make it around the table maybe 5-10% of the time.

Deadeye Navigator - See Equilibrium.

Skullclamp - Seems out of place. If the draw were 'leaves play' that'd be a different story.

3-4 lands - 37 is waaay high with this low of a curve.

Ok! Sweet build so far! Let me see if I can hell you out. I am a fan of the title by the way.

So Naturally, Feldon’s ability focuses on a few things. They are:

1) it triggers ETBs and graveyard abilties

2) it is a “tap” ability

3) and ARTIFACTS.

Keeping these three things in mind I would suggest the following, some of which may not suit your play-style, but alas! This is why they are suggestions!

Creatures like Inferno Titan , Godo, Bandit Warlord (only useful if you’re running equipments), Bloodfire Colossus , and Zealous Conscripts have value in entering or dying. The new Ilharg, the Raze-Boar may be of semi-interest to you even though he doesn’t have an ETB he is another tool that helps trigger ETBs like Feldon.

I think potentially the most key card you are missing is Sundial of the Infinite so you can keep the token copies that Feldon makes. Plus it’s an artifact you can try and recur since red can do that rather well. In regards to recursion I think you could mull over Goblin Welder and Scrap Mastery . They seen like they could work for you. Goblin Engineer from the soon to come out Modern horizons will be an auto-include for this deck too.

Krark-Clan Ironworks may be better for you than Phyrexian Altar . There would be no problems with running both but aince this deck is artifact heavy I’d recommend the former over the latter.

There is also Umbral Mantle , Thousand-Year Elixir , and Sword of the Paruns to help untap Feldon.

Anyway, this is not to say you dont already have some awesome stuff going on already! If you want my opinion on what to take out for some new stuff let me know. Id be happy to help.

Ok, I have several suggestions for you.

First, you're very light on creatures for a deck with so many sac outlets that's focusing on Marchesa's creature recursion. Several of your instants and sorceries have better options on an etb. Your avg cmc on your creatures is also pretty high (3.88) and the deck does better with more synergy on board when Marchesa hits the field.

Draw: Corpse Augur , Baleful Strix , Grim Haruspex , Midnight Reaper , Imperial Recruiter , Skullclamp , and even Consecrated Sphinx . Drop your 1 time draw spells.

ETB abuse/Marchesa protection: Sage of Fables and Metallic Mimic . You don't need a lot of one tribe to abuse something like Kokusho, the Evening Star on each players turn instead of once per round.

ETB/DEATH Triggers: Vindictive Lich , Zealous Conscripts (steal, attack, and sac and it stays yours), Venser, Shaper Savant (enchantment answer), Aura Thief (THE enchantment answer), and Sower of Temptation .

I had exploration in for a while but found I never had the extra lands to really make any use of it (frequently keep 2 land hands, which makes exploration just a weak mana dork in many cases). I also like my interaction to cost 1 mana usually (been thinking about cutting Glen Elendra Archmage for that reason) but I could see stratus dancer being a good fit as well (need less blue and combos with Cloudstone Curio . I like GEA just because it leads to a pretty simple and clean with Birthing Pod (sac, get Zealous Conscripts , untap pod, sac again to get Kiki-Jiki.
