I think I created a new kind of Affinity deck, and I could use some help.

I... think I might have accidentally created a new deck Archetype by messing around with -Drop artifacts and Affinity. The idea is this: Play dumb amounts of Free artifacts (Including Artifact lands), Remove Threats with an OP Galvanic Blast or Metallic Rebuke, pump out Gearseeker Serpent really early or feed all of those artifacts to Atog. Could use some help? Not sure how to expand on this idea. The deck can be found here.

There are Cheerios lists with the same idea that run Lotus Petal, Firebrand Archer, Artificer's Assistant and Reckless Fireweaver if that helps.

But the difference is that those lists don't use more Affinity based tactics, which is what I'm doing (e.g. Playing Gearseeker Serpent after dropping lots of -Drop artifacts).

eatmygender well same idea, most cheerios lists run 4 of the archer, the fireweaver, the affinity card draw spell(name escapes me at the moment) and the rest of the list is 0 drop artifacts. They run like combo decks, and you're going for a different payoff.

Edict effects and deathtouch will be your worst nightmare, so I'd run counters and bounce to protect the serpent if you stay that route

Here's a sick cheerios list if you want some ideas. https://youtu.be/0w3xD807NeM
