Depala, Pilot Exemplar
Legendary Creature — Dwarf
Other Dwarves you control get +1/+1
Each Vehicle you control gets +1/+1 as long as it's a creature.
Whenever this becomes tapped, you may pay . If you do, reveal the top X cards of your library, put all Dwarf and Vehicle cards from among them into your hand, then put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.

Hey, well done list so far on a low budget. Elsha with Vehicles is an interesting choice.
Some advice to get started on revision/optimization is to streamline creatures and lands to make Elsha better. Consider reducing the creature count down to 10 of the best creatures here for Vehicles strategy and/or crewing? (ordered by CMC)
- Toolcraft Exemplar
- Etherium Sculptor
- Giant Ox
- Kotori, Pilot Prodigy
- Depala, Pilot Exemplar
- Foundry Inspector
- Losheel, Clockwork Scholar
- Vedalken Archmage
- Katsumasa, the Animator
- Aeronaut Admiral
The less creatures the better for Elsha. Cut most creatures for lands and ramp? Elsha doesn't work with lands thus having less can also make Elsha better. Consider 32 lands with many budget low mana cost mana rocks to replace some lands?
To help with deck building add all the lands you want to play, even just basic lands, to see how many spots are left to fill or how many cards you need to cut to add more lands. Some budget lands to consider adding:
- Spire of Industry
- Mech Hangar
- Exotic Orchard
- Mystic Monastery
- Shivan Reef
- Rugged Prairie
- Prairie Stream
- Port Town
- Buried Ruin
Good luck with your deck.

Anyways with that whole kickstarter thing going on I noticed that the professor hasn't made a video so in case anyone was wondering
Some regular guys non-foil/foil
Void Winnower - 16.07/20.46
Vengevine - 10.71/12.95
Collector Ouphe - 5.63/33.07
Goblin Settler - 48.71/N/a
Non foil: 81.12 Foil: 115.19
Foil: B / non-foil: C+
There's a good bit of value with this secret lair. Goblin settlers getting its' first foil printing is definitely noteworthy. Also, if you're into the Adventure Time art style you'll like be picking this up anyways.
Showcase: Streets of New Capenna
Atraxa, Praetors' Voice - 30.77/35.53
Breya, Etherium Shaper - 7.98/9.84
Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder - N/A/8.84
Non-foil: 47.59 foil: 54.21
Non-foil - D foil: C-
This grade pains me because I REALLY think the art on these is beautiful and they'll likely include a Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis in the same style as a bonus card but putting personal preferance and speculation aside the value just is not here.
Special Guest: Matt Jukes Foil Edition
Glacial Fortress - 3.71/11.25
Drowned Catacomb - 7.28/17.46
Dragonskull Summit - 3.79/6.96
Rootbound Crag - 3.81/6.55
Sunpetal Grove - 3.89/5.96
Non-foil: 22.48 foil: 48.18
Non-foil - F foil - D-
The value in these really speaks for itself.
Artist Series: Magali Villeneuve
Mother of Runes - 4.91/Varies
Death's Shadow - 6.12/10.19
Elvish Mystic - .45/9.97
Forest - N/A
Non-foil - 11.48 Foil: N/A
Non-foil - F Foil - D-
The biggest thing out of this lair is the foil Mother of Runes the prices fluctuates so much with the older foils it's hard to set an exact price to obtain a foil one; if we look at the previous secret lairs those versions of Mother of Runes are sitting at about 6-10 a piece.
Artist Series: Sidharth Chaturvedi
Concordant Crossroads - 46.87/N/A
Nomad Outpost - 1.06/5.74
Ghost Quarter - 1.12/16.90
Island - N/A
Non-foil: 49.05 foil: 69.51
Non-foil: D- foil: C
Essentially this lair is being carried by the fact that Concordant Crossroads only has 1 printing and has never had a foil printing. If you need one or would like to get a foil one knows your chance but outside of that its just some bulky cards with nice art.
Artist Series: Wayne Reynolds
Sram, Senior Edificer - .25/6.09
Torbran, Thane of Red Fell - .95/1.89
Depala, Pilot Exemplar - .23/1.65
Balthor the Defiled - 10.95/59.61
Non-foil: 12.38 Foil: 69.24
Non-foil - F Foil - C
This lair is also being carried by 1 card that has only 1 printing the rest is bulk.
Finally! Left-Handed Magic Cards
Sisay, Weatherlight Captain - .98/6.02
Empress Galina - 18.31/206.82
Geralf's Messenger - 9.89/34.48
Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh - .26/.41
Garruk, Caller of Beasts - 8.20/23.41
Non-foil: 37.64 foil; 271.14
Non-foil - C Foil: A
While Empress Galina is definitely the chase card out of this; it still has value in the other slots too outside of Roger - but even Roger is still highly playable.
Anyways, after doing all the math and putting this all together I appreciate the professor doing this and compiling it a video format. Also, which secret lairs if any are you planning to get?

I think that dwarves got a little bit of support in Kaladesh and Kaldheim, but other than that they're widely ignored. There are a few Dwarf legends and Magda, Brazen Outlaw and Depala, Pilot Exemplar are legitimately good, but the tribe itself is underwhelming. I just think there needs to be more.

Jabberjaw46 Hi, and many thanks for taking the time to comment. I have a playset of Bomb Squad - just out of curiosity; are you thinking that he'd make a good addition when paired with Magda's ability?
I am planning on updating, and was hoping to make space for at least 2 (perhaps a playset) of Springleaf Drum to ensure mana flows nicely, and allow Dwarves to tap if I'm not able to get the Bloodboiler out.
I'm not sure I will have space to splash white, nor fit Depala, Pilot Exemplar - I could rework the deck to include vehicles though, and that'd be an easy way to tap Dwarves in terms of crewing.
Thanks again :)

Maybe a Bomb Squad in the sideboard?
also consider splashing white for Depala, Pilot Exemplar

carpecanum Thank you for the suggestions! Manriki-Gusari is definitely a great suggestion to the deck! I'll keep my eyes peeled for one! Dwarven Driller and Bomb Squad are awesome dwarfs, but I can't seem to justify their CMCs right now in the deck. Siege Modification is great, and the deck does hold a good chunk of vehicles. But I think it would be better suited in a Depala, Pilot Exemplar deck. The vehicles in this deck don't always need to be creatures and Siege Modification could cause unwanted ire towards the vehicle.

New to tappedout - My two cents is Depala, Pilot Exemplar . Made a $50 budget deck around her and with all the love Boros is receiving in the latest sets it's been a blast to play.

- Mcat1999: I'm using Golos, Tireless Pilgrim because personally, I'd rather opt for a more glass-cannon build with consistency (I know, that sentence sounds weird to me too), instead of solid but neutered gameplan. Golos makes sure we always have access to Maskwood Nexus, and Morophon, while giving you one tribe, makes your deck a lot less explosive. Also, thanks for the Winota, Joiner of Forces heads-up. I wanted that to work so bad, but that's one more slot, I guess! Also, those suggestions are great. I'd already thought of Risen Reef and Lathliss, Dragon Queen, but the rest are amazing cards I'd never have found.
