I'm coming back to magic after taking a break, and decided to look at the new aether revolt spoilers. I smiled as soon as I saw Walking Ballista, because it means we're one step closer to the jankiest combo ever, flash hulk! I was running 4 Disciple of the Vaults, 4 Ornithopters, 4 Memnites, and 2 Arcbound Ravagers, but now we can be even more efficient with 4 Disciple of the Vaults, 4 Hangarback Walkers, and 4 Walking Ballistas!

On a side note, is Sram's Expertise too cheeky for BW tokens?

I dont understand where you're getting the mana to set all of this up in a reasonable amount of time, seeing as the original Flashhulk had Flash. In modern, youd have to get to 6 mana, play hulk, then sacrifice it, all while fitting those cards into it.

Besides, the good flashulk drcks played Karmic Guide combo, ehich took up less space

i think balista is good on its own in midrange, but not as much in combo. the main use is as a mana sink that can destroy tokens dark confidants snapcasters cliques and enemy walkers
