AwezomePozzum thanks! Spire can be used in place of glimmervoid to cut about $100 cost. Cheers

SaSSolino8 MusicMaster these matchups all depend on hand with this deck. Tron and valakut are speed-dependent decks. If you can interrupt a big play you can win. Pillow fort is the same. If you can outpace an opponent or play smart with ravager you can win, although it is one of the more difficult matchups, along with kind. Against Tron, we can dominate after sideboard as long as we can remove engineet d explosives. Cheers

SaSSolino8 I think that's a question of preference. For me, I choose reverse engineer strictly because most often it's going to cost 2 and you get more draw. I ran reverse engineer in this deck for a bit and the extra card makes a bigger difference than it seems it would

catrule3564 i am liking overseer a lot more than when i first had it in the deck. I think it's because i didn't have hangarback in the deck before so token generation was coming solely from animation module. Thanks again for the input!

catrule3564 i really like your note about overseer+animation mod. I am going to give this some testing and see how it feels - cause in the end, no matter what a deck looks like in theory, it's all about how it feels/plays. Cheers and thanks for giving some solid input man.

stoic rebuttal seems like it may impose a large enough demand on mana that it may not work. will playtest tho ArchFline.
catrule3564 i had steel overseer in the deck for a brief time but replace it with Arcbound Stinger for more modular. i will playtest again and let you know. It's definitely a spot that you could change if wanted to tho - not as integral as some of the other positions in the deck. Cheers!

Yes but the costs of speed and flexibility outweigh the benefits. The 1 CMC slot in this deck is where all the utility comes from. Having a 2 CMC utility card would hurt tempo a lot cause it means we really don't start seeing residual benefit til turn 3, and also, if constrictor gets bolted it becomes a sunk cost whereas other creatures can provide further benefits at death. Thanks tho TheFausz

Spire is a great replacement to do this deck on a budget. So is yavimaya coast. Glad you like the deck brother! catrule3564

clayperce hey thanks man, i'll try out ruins to see how it works.
As for match ups, I've been playing this deck nonstop since I made it and have played against every single deck in the modern meta multiple times over. There's nothing it does poorly against. As a matter of fact, it shines most against control (esper, azorius) and aggro (8whack, zoo, etc) because of creature manipulation and token generation. Harder match up are against midrange decks like Jund and Eldrazi and Taxes, however, all you have to do is play smart and not make hasty decisions. All the sideboard pieces are there to shut down combos, remove artifact hate, remove threats, etc. I'm confident that if this deck were played by a team at a major modern event they'd have great results.
If you want to see some of my playtesting results I have a 'video playthrough' section in my description. I will be constantly adding more videos to this as time goes on, as well. Cheers!

I had sea gate wreckage, academy ruins and inventors' fair in the deck when I made it but they're too slow. I replaced them with darksteel citadel to activate mox opal and help thoughtcast. SaSSolino8

XVicarious Yup I originally built the deck with metallic mimic in it but found that it was a target for removal with no secondary benefit and also it can only help constructs or servos, not both. It was replaced with hardened scales.

Emzed I have calculated an adjusted CMC for the deck at 1.24-1.43. This adjusts for Ballista and hangabback being cast for 2 mana, and thoughtcast and metallic rebuke being cast for 1 (1.24) and 2 (1.43). The range gives an accurate representation of the actual costs the deck incurs. Thanks for your comment!

Hey, yea Grunyarth, I understand it's not an all-time top deck, but if you look down on the right side it shows this is #4. I'm guessing this means decks posted by week or category. Cheers and thanks!

Polupus thanks I'll text and change accordingly

hardhitta71194 thanks. I think it's the first of its kind. Stay tuned for some video playthroughs if you want to see it in action. Cheers!
