Those decks are a pain in the arse.
I was lucky the other night that no one was playing any at my FNM.
I expect that to change after the Pro Tour.
They eat my deck alive.

@Argeaux: I can actually beat the more traditional Gearhulk lists about 3-4/5 times... Now that I know what to watch out for. They can't deal with a resolved Drake Haven, its the more budgety/janky ones that run Fevered Visions that I'm having trouble with. I've been trying to improve my non-creature based matchups but this list is tuned to destroy creature based strategies.
@Eredes: You recommended Geier Reach Sanitarium a while back, I've been testing with it and it is amazing. Thanks so much for a great suggestion, 4 mana to be able to cycle any card in my hand and make a drake is so good. Its a little bit durdley, but its added so much staying power.
Lost Legacy has been helping a lot against Fevered Visions and the like. I haven't been seeing many Zombies, so I'm going to keep By Force as the dominant hate card over Scarab Feast. And the extra mana saved really does matter a lot to this deck at all stages of the game.

Have you tried adding a few Enigma Drakes? Otherwise it looks really awesome, I'll see how many of these Cards I already have so I can try building this.

The extra piece of Instant removal will give me more chance of knocking Wandering Fumarole on the head, and I'm pretty sure I can handle Gods now with Supernatural Stamina. Saving a blocker is probably all I need.

I went 1-0 to start at my local FNM and I won against mono red aggro. board wipes and lightning axes all the way! unfortunately i went 0-2 after that facing back to back green red energy decks. I feel that there is too much artifact hate in this deck and not enough creature hate (knowing fully that the pro tour just happened and I'm complaining about something that just came up recently). I wanted to take out 2 negates and possibly 1 by force and replacing that with two more essence scatters and POSSIBLY 1 disallow just to keep the counters in the deck

Maybe add a copy of Transgress the Mind for those madness match ups

so take out two negates and 1 by force for 3 copies of transgress the mind? seems good to be honest. Its just dam near impossible to deal with a resolved Bristling Hydra unless (by some miracle) they have less than 6 energy

The Negates are super key to my survivability, my meta has more problematic spells than creatures. Transgress the Mind is iffy for me... The madness drawback is pretty rare and Transgress cant hit a lot of the field... I'm not changing the By Forces, after the pro tour I'll need them to be a consistent answer to Aetherworks Marvel which I was already seeing a bunch of before the Pro Tour... I'm still happy with the list, I'll need to see some more losses before I commit to a change.

Hey i really like your Deck and it inspired me to build one like that.
But i have one question, why do you play Aether Hub? I mean you dont play anything with Energy. Or is it, because cycling is colorless and you use it that way and only if you really need one color you use the energy that one time?
Really awesome Deck!

It's an untapped 3 color land. So its worth including for that even if it is a one time thing. The fixing has saved me more than once and its a good land to use on extra costs () when you don't need it.

As i thought, ok! It really makes sense. Thanks for the quick answer. =)
