It has playtested pretty well for me. Looking for a little more consistency though, any ideas?

Not sure if Nim Shrieker is fast enough to warrant a place in this deck as he is very easy to pick off and doesn't contribute to your artifact count. I think Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas would be a better fit. Also, with the amount of "any color" mana why don't you run Galvanic Blast ? That card is such a blast..... (Nyuk Nyuk.)

Affinity tends to be a more aggressive deck so I think that, while a ramp approach isn't necessarily a bad thing, it may hurt you due to your lack of real "fatties". Magister Sphinx comes to mind.

I was trying to keep it budget but i may have to splurge for some tezzerets. I can see they would really help the deck late game with his -4 ability especially. Thanks for the suggestions.

Well, his avg price on TCGPlayer is approx $8. If you do add him I wouldn't add more than 2-3 just because you don't want to have more than one at a time.

If you want to see an Affinity deck taken from an online source and altered/made budget here is my take: deck:domo-arigato-mr-roboto

Nim Shrieker needs to go. Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas NEEDS to be 4x in Affinity. Period. For real 4x! Lol... He's a win-con and a tutor bro!

Spellskite should be sideboarded; mainboarded in it's place should be Etched Champion . I would also consider running some Swords, ala Sword of Light and Shadow , Sword of Fire and Ice , Sword of War and Peace , etc.

Something else to consider is Thoughtcast and card:Tezzeret's Gambit. Card draw is ALWAYS a good thing.

Phyresis could be interesting for a one hit kill against people gaining alot of life

Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas can make Inkmoth Nexus into a 5/5 flyer w/ Infect...

IMO the more infect with nim things like Cranial Plating the better

I'd say Etched Champion in place of Etherium Sculptor . Sideboard the Spellskite s and get rid of Nim Shrieker . Add 4x Galvanic Blast and the mana to support it, including 1x Mox Opal . 4x Blinkmoth Nexus would help too along with Darkslick Shores and Blackcleave Cliffs .

My friend came over last night with a similar deck and won turn 3-4 consistently!!! Only thing that stopped him was Creeping Corrosion ; Corrosive Gale helped my cause some as well.
