Hope of Ghirapur is legendary, so you do have to be careful not to add too many, but running x3 or x4 even is not unheard of.
Merchant's Dockhand is still a good card and you should keep at least 2. you can use him to dig through your deck to find the cards you need, so i wouldn't completely cut them.
all that said, i can see you either running x3 or x4 hopes, x2 in the slot of Bastion Inventor and possibly x2 over the dockhand, but thats just me. this is your deck, so you put them wherever you see fit.

Ok, Ok... this is getting pretty interesting now. I'd like to go ahead and thank everyone again for their input. As it now stands, the votes are all tied up 3:3 with the overall consensus that it's not needed but wouldn't hurt having
Going to let this poll go for a little bit longer and then see where we stand on the card. Either way this has been a really neat experience and honestly I'd say worked out quite well.

Yep, no problem. That's what I'm here for! If you have any questions feel free to tag me.

you are lacking enough draw to "support?" such low mana cost creatures. i'd personally a full set of Reverse Engineer to the list over Pacification Array, just because later in the game you really don't want to be shoving 2 or more mana a turn to just tap down one creature.
plus, adding in the extra draw will speed up the process as a whole, and thats always good. besides, you will almost never pay any more than for drawing 3 cards, which is great

you can win with infinite copter before you ever get a chance to cast your whale, so whats the point of running it?

Bastion Inventor doesn't really do anything here in the brew, and honestly a 4/4 body (even with hexproof) isn't as good as finding your herald.

tater tots are better. also consider Mechanized Production for another win-con
March 24, 2017 7:16 p.m.
All very interesting and valid points. So far the vote stands 3:1 in favor of "no".

you should switch the tag off from standard to modern.

if budget is not a problem Death Baron would go nicely here.
also consider Endless Ranks of the Dead

If it's not dead dead, this deck's mission is to kill it. Gosh it's like you didn't even read the primer ;)

Ok everyone! I've cleared comments and would like to invite all of you to join in a small poll here for the deck. The question is pretty simple and I'd love it for everyone to participate, it would really help, thanks.
Is it worth dropping ANOTHER roughly $40 on the deck to run a Cavern of Souls?

Trying to do my part and help out around the site, which honestly right now just means trying to help a whole bunch of people with their first cycles, but I was wondering if there was any other help that was needed in and or around the site. Knowledge is limited but I'm teaching myself a lot at the moment and I'd gladly step up if called upon. Cheers!

eww youre going to Transgress your own mind to exile a hedron? my friend and i made an alignment deck a few months ago and i never once thought about doing that. really neat interaction actually. i like it :)

sadly, Oran-Rief, the Vastwood is not a forest

i feel like your decks a little confused at the moment about whether it wants to attack or not. are you trying to have some good zombie aggro or are you trying to just hold down the fort and drain life with Gempalm Polluter and Shepherd of Rot

the problem i see here is that you don't actually have any cards that affect the board state on your side until turn 4 at the earliest. youre giving your opponent too much time to develop their own board state, and draw answers to whatever card you do go to play on that turn.
even though this is control, it still needs to be a little faster or to have more mass answers and board clears otherwise you will always be playing from behind, and thats not a good thing.
Fumigate is good, and it makes sense to see it here, perhaps one more in the mainboard will help when you get too far behind.
your colors also allow for Yahenni's Expertise to be played, which is another great board clear that dances around all your own creatures (Gisela, the Broken Blade would need a Gideon Ulti to survive though)
i've never personally liked Glimmer of Genius, especially here when you have nothing to make use of the energy it gets you, but if you really value the scry 2, draw 2 that much, then who am i to tell you not to use it. instead add one or two Aether Hub to make use of that energy you get, while fixing mana problems in the process.
i'd also consider adding a few smaller creatures just in case you need to chump block early game, giving you more time to set up. with gideon in play, his ulti can potentially be really useful in powering up weaker creatures making them at least worth it to add into the deck
good luck and i hope this helps. make sure to tag me if you have any questions. cheers m8!

Right now the deck is too all over the place to do itself any good. Having only one or two copies of any card means that your draw is going to be anything but reliable, and victories will be hard to replicate.
Since your goal was stated to get out as many servos as possible, you can start by just outright removing cards that have no affect on servo production whatsoever. that would be cards like:
when you have finished sorting those cards out, then you can take a look at the cards you have remaining and ask yourself, which cards are you going to want to be playing the most? which ones are the most powerful, and which ones you only need to draw every once in a while. and you can adjust your card count as you see fit.
as far as card suggestions go, Panharmonicon + (insert any card with fabricate here) is a good way to start. you'd most likely want to be running x3 or even x4 of Panharmonicon just because it is so powerful.
if you do go that route, you should look at cards that have any ETB ability. Cards like Servo Schematic, again anything with fabricate... you get the idea
good luck, tag me if you need anything
