Description

Energy based deck featuring the Kaladesh modules: Animation Module, Decoction Module, and Fabrication Module .


MAINBOARD


Animation Module: I'm not sure if I know which Module is the best one (Edit: It's Fabrication Module ), but this one puts in some serious work. Tireless Tracker is a good way to trigger the +1/+1 counters, though, ideally, you want to trigger its ability with Fabrication Module . The 1/1 Servos are great pilots for Aethersphere Harvester, and even better blood sacrifices for Ormendahl, Profane Prince  Flip's inevitable rise to power. The activated ability is so versatile, and is the main reason I think this module is so good. You can place a loyalty counter on a planeswalker with it, so you can ult Tezzeret the Schemer the turn after you play him.

Decoction Module: This card is really important if you are playing Whirler Virtuoso. The activated ability is the deck's main source of protection against removal, and should be kept in mind at all times.

Fabrication Module : This module creates massive threats even without help from its trifecta. Architect of the Untamed loves this guy and so do Whirler Virtuoso's thopters. Its activated ability is probably the worst one out of the three; there's usually always a better option available.

Winding Constrictor: This will amplify pretty much every combo/synergy in the deck.

Tireless Tracker: He and Architect of the Untamed realized that they had a lot in common, so I invited them to hang out together in my deck. Clues are kinda inefficient, but I generate a lot of them in this deck. Evolving Wilds and Attune with Aether feed these guys the way Taco Bell feeds the people of Denver on 4/20. Just ask Architect. Her shits are the size of a 6/6 colorless Beast artifact creature token. Those cards also allow me to run five colors in this deck. Along with Aether Hub and Servant of the Conduit, the color splash is almost never an issue.

Aethersphere Harvester: is a good card and I don't feel bad using it.

Harnessed Lightning: is obvious and good.

Unlicensed Disintegration: Probably interchangeable with Anguished Unmaking, I guess it's a meta call.

Saheeli Rai: She usually makes copies of creatures so that I can double up on Module activations. She can also copy a module but that sounds like a lot of difficult thinking to figure out if that's better or not. I think I'll let someone else do it. Maybe Tezzeret the Schemer is better on the mainboard... I don't know (Edit: I know. He is.).


SIDEBOARD


Consulate Surveillance : Is actually really good. This deck usually creates enough energy to sustain this card for a long time. Perma fog strats GO!

Painful Truths: Maybe there's better card advantage stuff, but I really like this card. Good in the control matchup, and Aethersphere Harvester more than covers the lifedrain.

Whirler Virtuoso: It's a really good finisher, but it feels a little too greedy for the mainboard. You'll probably side it in a lot, though.

Shielded Aether Thief : It's a pretty good anti aggro card. It has great synergies with Fabrication Module in particular. Much faster than Tireless Tracker.

Unlicensed Disintegration is definetely better than Anguished Unmaking.

I'd cut Saheeli. No reason to mess with blue mana for a 1-of. Might add Gonti's Aether Heart + Whirler Virtuoso. Those two plus either Decoction Module or Winding Constrictor (or 2x Decoction Module + Winding Constrictor, etc.) go infinite. Gonti's Aether Heart even gives you an extra turn to swing with all the dudes you just made. They both synergize well with the deck in general too. Overall, this looks like a really fun shell!

Though Whirler would necessitate blue mana haha

Oh, you don't have to sell me on Whirler Virtuoso. It's a really strong card if I have the other pieces, but it's generally weaker than Architect of the Untamed and Aethersphere Harvester. It's in the sideboard, but only because I want to make sure I'm in a slow enough matchup before I play it.

What you said about not messing with blue mana would usually be correct, but in all of my playtesting, I haven't really had any trouble casting any of my spells. If it ever does get too rough, though, I'll look into using Spire of Industry.

Gonti's Aether Heart certainly does go infinite with Virtuouso. Saheeli Rai is a little weird, but it costs 3 less mana than Heart does and the ult is a little cheeky for this deck in particular (though you'd probably only ever want to use the -2 ability). I'm currently looking in to testing Tezzeret the Schemer in her place, but Gonti's Aether Heart may make it's way into the sideboard with Whirler Virtuoso.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Feel like I need more turn 1 plays. Anyone have anything in mind?
