Arcbound Slith Discussion

Depending on how competitive you want to make this deck you want to consider serveral options all depending on your budget. I would reccomend if your creating a more casual deck you might want more card draw effects, such as Curiosity or Curious Obsession . Additionally having more ways to defend your powered up creatures will be critical to your gameplan; adding Mizzium Skin or Dive Down effects might be really handy. If your going for something as close to top tier as you can take it I would also add in more counterspells such as Stubborn Denial and throw in Hexproof threats such as Slippery Bogle and Invisible Stalker . Also if you want to be super jank replace more of your creatures with: Arcbound Slith , Slith Firewalker and Slith Strider .

Apologies if this has been brought up already.

I'm building an Oathbreaker deck around Saheeli, Sublime Artificer . If Panharmonicon and Animation Module are both on the field and I cast Arcbound Slith , does animation module count as a triggered ability, triggering panharmonicon, basically letting me pay 2 at the cost of a single spell?

Since your curve peaks at 4 mana, I recommend that you focus on 2-mana accelerants: Nature's Lore, Farseek, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Fellwar Stone instead of Abzan Banner, Ratchet Bomb (also destroy your board), Verdant Automaton (too slow), Arcbound Slith and Arcbound Worker (too slow). // Rishkar, Peema Renegade can put the first counter on creatures so you can proliferate them and tap them for mana when needed. Abzan Charm has great versatility. Odric, Lunarch Marshal has great synergy with Atraxa, Praetors' Voice. Chasm Skulker and Cathars' Crusade require quick answer or else they win you the game. Orzhov Advokist serves double duty: she deters opponents from attacking you if they accept the offer, and also put counters on your creatures for free. Lim-Dul's Vault is a great tutor. Utter End, Anguished Unmaking, Abzan Charm, Swan Song, Beast Within, Swords to Plowshares and a overloaded Cyclonic Rift are great for dealing with your opponents' threats. // In the card advantage department, Bred for the Hunt, Path of Discovery (also create counters), Shapers of Nature (also create counters), Zameck Guildmage and Etched Oracle are repeatable draw while Rishkar's Expertise, Prime Speaker Zegana, Painful Truths and the aforementioned Abzan Charm are 1-shot card draw. // I suggest you to replace Grasping Dunes, Ifnir Deadlands, Survivors' Encampment, Simic Guildgate, Tranquil Expanse and Deeproot Champion (almost all your deck are creatures) by Yavimaya Coast, Caves of Koilos, Exotic Orchard, Bountiful Promenade, Sea of Clouds, Morphic Pool, upping your land count to 37.

I love arcbound creatures!

Arcbound Reclaimer has some utility use, especially in multiples with Grim Haruspex or Fecundity, and can go infinite with Dross Scorpion and AEther Vial, but a lot of those pieces have CMC 4 so meh.

Arcbound Slith I want so hard to like, but it needs to do damage to tge player, and as a 1/1 thats just so hard to make pay off consistently.

Arcbound Crusher can be a good addition if you need a trampler to pull a finisher, and it just grows and grows. A nice alternative though could be Avatar of the Resolute. As an early draw he's just good value and in a deck like this as a late draw he could be considerably more powerful.
