Binding worked well. Deck was fabulous and MNM tonight, but I need to cut scrapheaps for more defenses. Maybe Servo Exhibition is the ticket, or more of those guys who make treasure whene they die.

I could be wrong, but it probably depends what you're hitting. There are times you REALLY want an enemy card gone. Like suppose they cast out your Binding. Then you Bind their Cast Out. You win that fight, as they can never use Cast Out anymore. Or if you kill Hazoret, they can't cast another.
In this deck, you likely have blockers for a Hazoret so you can get her the turn after.

hjaycee, I commented, but I would like to see a description attached to your deck. Interested in when it works for you too.

I wanted to find a Marionette Master deck that really works for a long time, and it seems maybe I finally have. There's a lot of cards I could have played, but I'd like to get input.

This list feels strange to me. I don't play control myself but I play against it enough. Normal control decks have 26 lands, not 21. They have tons of card draw (which you have) but you don't have Search for Azcanta Flip which is supposedly the latest and greatest.
Your removal seems minimal here, but is part of the reason why UB is now favored over UW, you don't have great options in white currently. The decks I've seen make up for this with lots of Settle the Wreckage and Fumigate, you have one of each.
But then you're playing a lot of creatures which makes this deck much less control and more midrange. Which means I was somewhat confused until now. A midrange deck like yours needs 24 lands.
Cut Angel of Invention, it's not good without tokens and without Gift deck's eternalizing. I would advise other means of protecting and reclaiming your life total. Regal Caracal maybe. There's lots of options, I'm not really sure here.

I like. Perhaps now the challenge is beating the new decks in the metagame. BW/g tokens runs Hidden Stockpile and Fumigate main. BU control runs a lot of counterspells main. You might not get Tishana resolved. Can this deck deal with these? Actually, the BU control somehow runs 0 sweepers. I don't understand how they can beat a tokens deck. On the other hand, a local player runs UB cycling with Archfiend of Ifnir. I think that card would destroy this with no methods of removing it. What do you think?

I ran into a bunch of UB control yesterday. One was all cycling and Archfiend of Ifnir. The other was normal control winning off Scarab God and such. Wonder how this would fare in that mix. Search for Azcanta Flip needs to be tried regardless. So much card advantage.

hjaycee, you're supposed to comment on the deck above you before you post...

Duh, I missed that. I see Captain Lan and Wily Goblin are your treasure makers. Are they enough? What's your experience been playing the deck?

You must cut a color. Aether Hub is not a good card without multiple energy sources, and this is not the kind of deck that could afford 4 colors. If you're aiming to keep this budget and not buy the rare dual lands, you should stick to 2 colors. If I were you I would sell the Carnage Tyrant and use the money to buy Red/Black lands.

Hostage Taker would be ideal in this kind of deck, though I'd wait for the price to drop a bit.

Thanks for ideas.
I don't want Ashes because I want to cast Sacred Cat and Anointer Priest from the graveyard. I don't think that card turns off Gift or Scarab God. So what is it doing against these decks?
Torrential Gearhulk isn't a much played deck at present.

Mashing 2 great decks together which have a lot of cross-synergy between them:

Ideas to make this great are welcome.

A great way to get treasure in a UB deck is Revel in Riches, but you need to emphasize the kill cards more. Bontu's Last Reckoning isn't necesarily something you want in every deck, but if your opponent has 5 creatures and you have Revel, boom, all those Treasures mean you don't care about lands not untapping.
I think Unsummon is not the card you want in a Fraying Sanity deck. I'd rather go with something with discard or make them sacrifice.
