Well Zaueski I thank you for your help. Playtesting this now and Kingpin works wonders.

Hm, well that's a valid point. I will definitely consider Lost Legacy then. Have you ever found the draw ability inconsequential?
January 22, 2017 9:09 p.m.
I'm just wondering how lost legacy truly is that much better than PTB?
I can agree with Scrap Trawler. While I don't necessarily believe Servo Schematic to be inherently bad ST can recur more often than Schematic.
I can definitely get behind Contraband Kingpin. Taking out a reverse engineer, shield,and a schematic for 3 sounds reasonably good to me. I'm curious though what are your thoughts on Merchant's Dockhand and it's mini dig ability? For it seems good for an artifact early on.
January 22, 2017 7:40 p.m.
Yeah I'd say use both if you can. Go wide with Master and let opponents take 4 per artifact.
January 22, 2017 5:43 p.m.
Great build so far! My one suggestion would be to accelerate the mana if you can afford it!
Fetches, shocklands and battle lands go a long way. is tough to consistently pull off early but they will help you far more than something like Forbidden Orchard.
Marionette Master has some impressive duality with Reckless Fireweaver

If this were in as a set I would probably have 24 Instant/Sorcery spells.

Pick the Brain should be a decent sideboard answer for Delerium, especially when its delerium triggers.
But perhaps you're right. Things like To the Slaughter could help deal with a Gideon or other creatures. Lost Legacy has seen some decent SB coverage lately as well. Flaying Tendrils may also be useful.

Fatal Push is great I just have no way of utilizing revolt consistently.
I also wouldn't use Tez's Touch on Heart of Kiran it's already a 4/4! With Hope of Ghirapur you can pump it up swing and likely deal combat damage, sac it afterward to prevent your opponent from casting, sending it back to your hand and you can just recast it once more assuming you've open.
Proph Prism is neat for another artifact but like you said there are probably better choices, faster ones too. Reverse Engineer so far has consistently been only which is fantastic.
Herald in playtesting I've had T3 which was great!
I'd love to see how this could be in frontier with more useful 0-Drops like Tormod's Crypt. The fetches would make Fatal Push an auto-include as well.
January 21, 2017 5:55 p.m.
I love Hope of Ghirapur! With Tezzeret's touch it becomes a wonderfully recurring lockdown.
I dig Transgress primarily because of it's synergy with Herald, and it is one of the stronger hand disruption spells.
Aric_Haldan I actually did run prophetic prism in an earlier build. I quite like it but it's as you said a little slower but I believe I decided to reserve another 2-drop for something that could work alongside Herald like Implement of Malice
Interesting point about Make Obsolete! I think the common understanding was that it should be good enough be rid of tokens. But you're right there are loads of ways to pump creatures; I was hoping that at instant speed this could be a decent answer.

irishmoosetard you are right, friend. i do plan on keeping both Ornithopter and Cathar. They have helped considerably. Merchant's Dockhand I feel can replace something else.
January 20, 2017 7:58 a.m.
Dack Fayden may be wiser though, as he can draw, then discard; which is incredibly valuable.
January 19, 2017 3:02 p.m.
I had thought about her for a bit and thought she was too slow in the grand scheme of things, but I may give her a second viewing. Tezzeret could effectively tutor all my 0-drops, and Daretti has complete synergy with Breya. Nahiri would be interesting for removal and card advantage, but I'd have to figure out what to take out.
I could try running Nahiri, the Harbinger and Pull from Eternity or Gamble, Taking out Metalworker and Thran Dynamo which should balance out the curve. Metalworker hasn't done all too much anymore, and I'm not short on colourless mana.
January 19, 2017 2:55 p.m.
Valid points all around. I'll keep the build as is for the time being.
Implement of Malice seems to be one of the most notable card I'd want to test with. But reduces the speed quite a bit from something like the Shield, which may seem useless, but it's so very important to dump alongside Ornithopter to bring out the Herald as early as T2.
Merchant's Dockhand was also on my radar. It seems pretty sweet.
January 19, 2017 1:11 p.m.
Zaueski what are your thoughts about:
January 19, 2017 12:52 p.m.
JeppeFugl hey thanks for commenting! And I like the look of your deck!
Splashing white would be nice but I still leaning toward a pure dimir build.
If I ran any of the implement cards I may be able to make use of revolt.
I might filter a Reverse Engineer and Metallic Rebuke for two Pacification Array, or Implement of Malice for more discard synergy.
January 19, 2017 8:49 a.m.
TBH it was more for the draw three for that appealed to me.
I'm really liking implement of malice more and more.
January 18, 2017 8:21 p.m.
Zaueski Hmm that's a valid point. I shall mull over swapping it thank you!
TenaciousKey oh man totally forgot about the planeswalker exclusives! And you think Diabolic Tutor or Trophy mage would be faster than Reverse Engineer and Cathar's Shield?
January 18, 2017 7:28 p.m.
hardhitta71194 cheers mate. It's a big factor in the deck, yes. TezTouch is another decent wincon I've noticed in testing. Like I mentioned in the desc. it's a nifty duo with Hope of Ghirapur; swing/sac control someone's turn and return the Hope back to my hand again.
Zaueski wow man incredible suggestions. I've liked Hope so far but you have strong arguments. I'll test it competitively and if it just can't hold up Contraband Kingpin or Scrap Trawler are beautiful alternatives.
Pick the Brain had been more than promising. I've had many instances of delerium - at least momentarily validifying its entry over my previous Harsh Scrutiny.
I may shave the Schematics for one of the Implements. I underestimated those.
