Hey man, thanks for the advice! I kind of rushed the deck and didnt pay attention to a lot of details. My budget is really really tight, but i will take most of your tips. thanks a lot

Since you're running so many ways to cheaply ping all of your opponent's creatures, the forthcoming Pestilent Spirit will be a dream come true. Death Pits of Rath is a backup way to do the same, and it also extends to damage dealt by your creatures and enchantments, though it can occasionally backfire as well.

If it's literally just those three, I can't help you, but I did design a Metal Gear Solid theme deck some time ago.

29 lands seems like way too much! Take out 4 for Bonesplitter and you'll have a cheap way to hasten your foe's demise.

I think you're a little light on creatures. You might want to run Dauthi Marauder over Scare Tactics, which requires you're attacking with at least three creatures for it to be worthwhile. Even then, it has the same effect as Bump in the Night , which doesn't need any creatures to work.

Some other ideas:

Dowsing Dagger  Flip gives your opponent two useless creatures that can't block any of your guys, meaning it will immediately flip.

Dauthi Trapper or Dauthi Embrace plus Dauthi Cutthroat is removal every turn.

Lashwrithe will be a little pricey at four mana, but it's a huge boost that should close out the game quickly.

Since you're relying on all of your creatures being unblockable, you might appreciate Warriors' Lesson as a cheap way to draw some cards. Likewise, Phytoburst is probably more efficient than Giant Growth, since surprise value is kind of wasted on an unblockable attacker.

It might be need to run some fog effects - Fog and Holy Day are fine, but Tangle and Moment's Peace are ideal - since you can't block your opponent's creatures, either. That way you'll ensure you can win the damage race!

If you want to phase your opponent's stuff out, a way to really make it hurt is by throwing in Sands of Time . Permanents phase in or out during the untap step, meaning if a card's phased out and you skip the untap step, then it will never come back!

Problem is, if there's no untap step, then cards with phasing aren't phasing out either, so you need a way to manually move them. Reality Ripple is an option in-colour, but the real trick is to use Equipoise . Keep your board slim, and your opponent's creatures, artifact and even lands will phase out en masse.

I'm afraid not! A creature's converted mana cost is an invariable number - that is, the amount of mana their mana cost requires regardless of colour. So no matter what - no matter what! - Goreclaw will always have a converted mana cost of four. Now, that doesn't mean you always have to pay four mana to play her - Emerald Medallion allows you to pay less, but that doesn't mean her mana cost is one less. It means you can pay three mana to play a four mana creature. After all, if you used one mana to pay for Unearth and brought back a three-mana creature, your opponent couldn't use Isolate to remove it.

Ergo, Goreclaw allowing you to pay less for another creature doesn't lower its converted mana cost, either. Aluren will only let you drop creatures whose printed mana cost adds up to 3 or less, no ifs, ands or buts. Because again, their mana cost can never change: only what you might have to pay to play them.

If you're in the market for marginal upgrades, you can swap Druid of the Anima for Skyshroud Elf and Fervor for Fires of Yavimaya - I'm running both, personally.

Are you sold on running Crush Contraband rather than Return to Dust? It can get two cards even at instant speed, but I often find Return to Dust's potential to nail two artifacts or enchantments, rather than it needing to be one of each, to be important.

This is one handsome deck!

What do you do if your opponent's deck sucks?

I'd recommend Etherium Sculptor and/or Cloud Key as another way to "ramp" by making your artifacts cheaper. You also might as well run Inventors' Fair as a way to occasionally tutor out whatever you need!

If you wanted to double down on the thopter production, Sharding Sphinx should be a good addition, and Retrofitter Foundry would also give you another use for them while you're at it, freely swapping out any thopters for a 4/4.
