Hangarback Walker Discussion

Thanks for the advices!
Stonecoil Serpent seems really flexible and hard to deal with, i will surely try it out. But I really like the value of Aquastrand Spider when it gives multiples counters on new creatures entering the field with scales and Constrictor serpent already on the board.
I also really want to try out Mindless Automaton for cards draw, but I'm afraid it will be too slow in modern.
Same thing for Hangarback Walker, I really like this card but maybe too awkward in this decklist. My deck is not really an artifact synergiser

TheMeadiator: Thanks for the suggestions and upvote! It does tend to pop off pretty quick haha, with reasonably good recovery from wipes and no reliance on any one strategy to find a win. =)
I really resonate with a lot of your suggestions! Wurmcoil Engine is one of my favourite cards (full stop haha) and originally had included Phyrexian Altar and Ashnod's Altar in the build with this type of token generation in mind. In the end I opted to play more around effects that produced tokens as a result of gaining life or instant speed activation. Alas, a great seller of the wurms is their wipe protection, something I was conscious of when veering away from that strategy, and included Hangarback Walker and Lifeblood Hydra for that kind of coverage. :)
Heroic Intervention is maybe my only hard disagree. It can save my other permanents from removal and wipes for one less mana, so in that regard I consider it to be integral to the deck. However I've been seriously considering cutting Unbreakable Formation in favour of Rootborn Defenses if I can't find a way to include all three of them lol.
Aura Mutation with Divine Visitation and/or Parallel Lives/Anointed Procession/Doubling Season is pretty nutty, and I highly recommend haha! I had originally cut Sundering Growth for Aura Mutation haha though I was thinking about cutting Aura Shards (less likely) or Dismantling Wave to put it back in.
Sorry to hit you with the wall of text haha, great suggestions and thanks again! =)

zapyourtumor thanks for the advice! I made some adjustments based on what you said, and the deck plays better now. I might change up the mana base a but more as I play more with it. While the 4x Hangarback Walker and the 2x Walking Ballista make the deck a bit more expensive, they're worth it, and the deck is still pretty cheap compared to most other modern deck. Thanks!

PoisonLexy I had a look on MtgGoldfish to see what the other tron decks are running for lands. Green-Tron is running 17 lands, but they make up for it with over 1/3rd of their deck dedicated to digging for lands ( Ancient Stirrings , Sylvan Scrying , Chromatic Sphere , Chromatic Star , Expedition Map ). Eldrazi-Tron, on the other hand, runs 24 lands - and that archtype much more closely resembles your gameplan (they just run Expedition Map ).
The problem with the “Etched people” is that most of them do almost nothing unless you can generate 5 colors of mana, which your deck is going to really struggle to do. You can’t rely on Steel Overseer because the opponent will often kill it well before it gets a chance to tap. Also the only creature that needs the counters is Etched Oracle , so feels like its synergy is low.
It just really feels like the Etched creatures require a massive amount of setup for very little gain…
I think a strong potential avenue for you to go down would be a mono-blue tron-artifact build. That would let you still run Etched Champion , and actually make it threatening using Cranial Plating or Ghostfire Blade . You’d be able to grab whatever you needed with Whir of Invention which’d mean you could run a single copies of Blightsteel Colossus and Platinum Emperion . You’d keep the planeswalkers, but be better suited for providing a consistent creature-threat, with blue providing value cards like Sai, Master Thopterist , and Master of Etherium , while the tron lands can create large Hangarback Walker and Walking Ballista . You wouldn’t need to be messing around for 5 colors, and the deck can additionally function alright if you missed assembling tron

I did some searching on colourless cards that might be a good fit because I thought it was fun that they could be cast for cheap/free and also acts as pseudo-rap.
Some cards that might be worth a try:
- Triskelion and friend Monoskelion
- Decimator of Provinces
- Crystalline Crawler
- Oblivion Sower
- Steel Dromedary
- Endless One
- Ugin's Conjurant
- Hangarback Walker
Also this combos w Triskellion: Cauldron of Souls
One thing I noticed in this deck was that non-creatures spells feel really expensive because they don't get the discount. So if you are looking for cards to cut you could start there.
