An incredibly fast combo deck that utilizes all the best card draw in standard to dig for Aetherflux Reservoir and cast much of the deck to lethal the opponent as early at t4

Game Plan: Use Inspiring Statuary to make all your spells cost 1 or 2 colored mana with the help of all the 0-cost artifacts. If you don't have the Statuary, tutor for it with an eot Whir of Invention. Use Sram, Senior Edificer and Reverse Engineer to get a bunch of incidental card draw, then play Paradoxical Outcome and tap artifacts to cast it for and draw close to 10 cards (Don't bounce the statuary or Sram though unless they give lethal!). Round it off with Aetherflux Reservoir to the face for 50 damage. This usually goes off around T5, but can happen on t4 if you get lucky.

Important Interactions:

(I cut green for the moment, but I'm still going to leave this here for now:) Unbridled Growth is an aura draws an extra card with Sram, Senior Edificer in play while also fixing, so if you have Sram in hand, maybe wait to play the growth until later.

Spells cast before Aetherflux Reservoir will still count toward the life gain later. This means that if you cast a Cathar's Shield with Sram in play, drawing Aetherflux Reservoir, then cast the Reservoir and another Cathar's Shield, you will gain 3 life, because you cast 2 spells before it that turn. Then you cast an Ornithopter? You'll gain 4 life. This is especially important with Baral's Expertise.

Sram, Senior Edificer draws on cast, so if you cast an equipment or aura and your opponent Shocks him, you'll still draw a card.

Inspiring Statuary only reduces NON-artifact spells, so getting Aetherflux Reservoir can be very awkward. Fortunately, Baral's Expertise allows you to cast the Reservoir for just , while simultaneously increasing your spell count by 5! That is of course assuming you have 3 free artifacts on play, but that isn't very challenging. This is probably the most important "hidden" interaction, as it allows you to combo out on t4.

Just wanted to know how you guys feel about in this deck. Should it be cut, and if so for what?
