For Leyline of Sanctity you can possibly try something like Liquimetal Coating, Neurok Transmuter to turn it into an artifact and use Shattering Spree or Smash to Smithereens on it. It's kind of clunky but it does the job. Plus, artifact removal is solid sideboard material, and will also deal with the new Orbs of Warding.
And I would consider taking out one Anticipate for another Chief of the Foundry (you might still keep the Anticipate in your sideboard if you feel like you need more filtering), and definitely take two Ghostfire Blade out for two Thopter Spy Network. It will both provide you more creatures, more evasion and more artifacts, and provide you card draw which will be vital and decrease the need for Anticipate. And if you do, keep an eye on Stoke the Flames as M15 rotates out of standard, if the price goes down you might want to consider it to have another burn spell and take advantage of your numerous tokens on the field.

Obviously Neurok Transmuter won't do the job! I don't know why, but I got its abillity confused.

GS10 good ideas! I agree with the answer to Leyline of Sanctity, I it is fairly effective. However, I think that Thopter Spy Network has a bit too high of a CMC. I want to win by turn four, six at the latest. I would almost never get any tokens out of it. Not sure about the RR in Stoke the Flames. I might not have it with only 4 Mountains. Still, I do have the Springleaf Drums. I'll put that in the sideboard for now. I also will take your advice on the Chief of the Foundry. Memnarch Has too high of a CMC anyway plus, you know, $8.00.
Thanks for the help!!!

I wouldn't worry about Leyline of Sanctity too much, most people wouldn't sideboard that in against Affinity unless they saw most of your burn spells in game one.
As for it being a budget build, I like the innovation, most people building Affinity just go straight to net-decking. However, it is objectively worse than the standard build, as most modern decks can kill you or get out of reach by turn 4.

Yeah, the more I play tested, the more I realized that I didn't normally win by burn. The burn is more just removal. However, the + combo gets rid of all sorts of things, like tron and whatnot. So it's pretty solid sideboard material.
Thanks! I was looking at the pro builds for inspiration but I also really like RU so I added a little of my own flair. I know that it is worse, unfortunetly, then standard builds, being it does not include standards like Arcbound Ravager, Steel Overseer, or Mox Opal but it is also about $150.00 dollars cheaper :). Plus, it still kills about turn 5. Which is still pretty fast in my circles.
Thanks for the insight!
