Hi, what do you think of adding Vraska, Relic Seeker as a 1 of in the deck? I think it's a pretty powerful card to finish a game off with, and you don't even have to splash for it in this deck. Also I think Glint-Sleeve Siphoner would be a great 4 of card for this deck, because it gives you plenty of card advantage, and fits the energy subtheme you seem to have here. Also I'm iffy on this but Hazardous Conditions might be spicy tech.

I was considering Vraska, Relic Seeker but decided against it as I'm looking to overwhelm the Opponent with as many Creatures as possible.
I will keep it in mind, though.

A couple thoughts (though please take these with heavy skepticism, as I haven't played Standard this season!):
- I've played both Verdurous Gearhulk and Walking Ballista in "counters matter" decks and I generally prefer the Ballista. Gearhulk can be insane, but it's kind of meh on an empty board. Ballista fits in more places on the curve, provides value even if it's immediately removed, and makes a great Mana sink late game.
- With 4x Aether Hub, 4x Attune with Aether, and 2x Servant of the Conduit, I think you've got plenty of fixing. I'd pass on the Evolving Wilds unless you need an extra Landfall trigger for some reason.
Draw well, StuBi!

I've never liked cards like Hangarback Walker and Walking Ballista, so I'm gonna hard pass on those for now. StuBi and are keeping it in mind, though. We will probably make adjustments after seeing how the deck plays.
Skysovereign, Consul Flagship is something we are also considering.
Thanks for giving me some things to think about.

Scavenger Grounds doesn't force a shuffle. Just a heads up.

However, if I were you, I would more do like this:

Walking Ballista would fit nicely in place of a couple of Aethersphere Harvesters I think, it would add a direct damage element. With Verdurous Gearhulk and Winding Constrictor on the list it would probably make Ballista a game winning strategy. I think something similar was the winner of the Ixalan constructed pro tournament the other day.
I really like this deck +1

Nah Aethersphere Harvester is AMAZING in this deck.
The amount of life gain you can amass to get yourself out of trouble, and the fact that you can block so many things, is ESSENTIAL.
It is what makes the version of work so well.
I know all about the winning Pro Tour deck.
This one heads in a slightly different direction.

Vraska, Relic Seeker does produce creatures. I would advise on a one of in this deck.
November 13, 2017 1:17 p.m.
1) I will never add only one copy of a card to any of my decks. Must be at least two, to be relevant.
2) Which cards would you suggest removing?
3) Just because Vraska works in Sultai Energy doesn't mean she is right for this deck.
4) My local meta is EXTREMELY Aggro. Not sure if Vraska has time to hit the field before the game is over.

Have you considered a couple of Ifnir Deadlands as a removal-spell-in-a-pinch? Your mana seems strong enough that I doubt you'll need to pay life for a all that often. It also gives you extra fodder for Scavenger Grounds if you need it.
November 14, 2017 4:24 p.m.
It is almost a must add in any deck I run that has
The 1 ping doesn't seem like much, but sometimes I lose JUST to Sacred Cat.
November 15, 2017 12:26 a.m.
Vraska doesn't sound like such a good idea if you're up against very many turn 5 kill decks.
I guess I'd suggest to remove a Yahenni's Expertise from the sideboard for a copy.
It's hard for me to NOT be on board with a two turn clock, use her +1 twice, it helps protect her from creatures too! Then, her ultimate has your foe at 1 life like that. Disallow is a bummer, but that's about the only thing stopping it.
Also, even as a two of "destroy target permanant and get a treasure" id say that is her most valuable role. Removal. Im all for it.
November 15, 2017 4:34 a.m.
If she was cheaper I'd be more inclined.
In my current local meta I just can't afford to be sitting on a 6CMC card.
All copies of Yahenni's Expertise need to be in my deck as they are so good against both Ramunap , and Cats. Both decks are prevalent in my meta.
November 15, 2017 7:24 a.m.
Well then, I can't say that I didn't try, or that I don't agree with your decisions based on the new information.
How has this done?
November 15, 2017 9:50 p.m.
It's early days.
I'm not piloting it, so all the info I have is second hand.
It absolutely trounced Ixalan Ramunap Red tonight 2-0, but the Cats player has added fliers to his deck, which proved challenging. He also uses a lot of Ixalan's Binding and Cast Out, so we're trying Crushing Canopy in the Side, against him.
The meta has started to slow down, and I have some Vraska, Relic Seeker lying around, so I am reluctantly putting some in.
We'll see how that goes.
November 16, 2017 12:30 p.m.
Have you considered putting in 2 Maulfist Revolutionary's in your sideboard/deck to replace Winding Constrictor? Constrictor does have the advantage that its an passive ability while Maulfist only procs on summon and death, but depending on the deck you are facing it could be the other way around. Ive seen quite a few +1/+1 Explore/Merfolk decks and -1/-1 Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons decks that would benefit more from the Winding Constrictor than you would. But I guess it all depends on the meta at where you play.
November 16, 2017 10:48 p.m.
Im dumb, I just realized that Winding Constrictor was only for your own cards.
November 16, 2017 10:49 p.m.
PI3L0V3R no worries mate, that kind of thing happens to me all the time.
It's the CARDS that are dumb, not us!!
