We have some options here, running this deck as either an Aggro strategy with Electrostatic Pummeler to smash in huge damage with Built to Smash or Larger Than Life and Blossoming Defense to protect and buff the Pummeler. Also we have an Infinite combo to utilize by setting up 1-2 Decoction Module or 1-2 Panharmonicon to continually create Thopters with Whirler Virtuoso. Making use of Infinite Thopters by triggering off Reckless Fireweaver for Infinite damage. Use Saheeli Rai to Scry for combo pieces, Duplicate a combo piece in order to go Infinite, or Ultimate to Tutor up the artifact pieces if you're just having really bad luck in drawing them.

Hopefully anyone reading this will enjoy this strategy, it seems like it would be a lot of fun to play. Please leave a comment and a +1 if you deem it worthwhile.

Looks good but maybe the strat is a bit too specific with only electro. P. As an aggro Targetit seems dangerous but wild af. I approve

I dig it. My deck uses a similar win condition (Electrostatic Pummeler and Aethertorch Renegade) and is all about generating energy. Pummeler seems sadly underplayed in Standard as a whole, but I think he's just waiting for the right player to find that sweet spot.

I am switching the renegades with glint-nest crane to help cycle and seek my artifacts. I love the energy decks. Diggin this!

Zman995 That's a very good swap, I may actually do that myself. Glint-Nest Crane would be right at home here to filter cards looking for artifacts.

Mornelith I was playing with the renegades with a previous deck for energy and I was noticing an issue getting the artifacts out as I was running decoction, fabrication, panharms, and animation to get an infinite thopter loop. I will be putting it to the test here thursday in a tourney.

I feel like Bristling Hydra would be a better backup plan than Electrostatic Pummeler. Then you could replace Built to Smash with two more Harnessed Lightnings. You could even drop to three Hydras and include a Metalwork Colossus to take advantage of your durdly artifacts.

Have you considered Saheeli Rai for a way to copy your artifacts to easily combo off? Also maybe Era of Innovation?

I really like this build you have. I've been running a RG pummeler Pummeler Smash deck the last few months and spent this week brewing up a combo deck to play with infinite thopters. I ended up going with Jeskai to have the benefit of Aetherstorm Roc in addition to the Decoction Module. I also threw in some Servo Exhibition for good measure. As you appear to have some good experience with these particular combos, would you mind taking a look at my Whirler Pandemonium for any advice? The first thing I've found from play-testing (and apparent in your deck) is that I should get some more Saheeli Rai in my deck.

djnewellmit might want to hold out on that Saheeli Rai purchase if you haven't already done it. She's spiked because of a card spoiled in Aether Revolt and lets just say that the speculation is rampant lol

What do you think about Gonti's Aether Heart? It's pretty good with Whirler Virtuoso.

Seems like a high CMC at 6, but the extra turn effect is definitely tempting. This may warrant some testing, but Panharmonicon has been the top of the curve at 4 CMC.

wouldnt Padeem, Consul of Innovation be a good card for the combo because there are plenty of artifact removals

Is this deck still good even with the meta changing and the new amonketh block and ixalan cards? I'm afraid it wouldnt be good against aggro like ramunap red.
