Artifact Creature — Human Artificer
, , Return an artifact you control to its owner's hand: You may put an artifact card from your hand onto the battlefield.
1 week ago
First I would actually cut green for uw. Go a more controlly or taxy versions. Ethersworn Canonist Lodestone Golem a few like 3 main board counters 3 baby teferis 4 mystical dispute in sideboard. Slowly stealing your opp stuff seems better in this type of shell
I would highly suggest putting Chromatic Star and the other simular effect back in the deck.
Also other cards that might make this work
Swift Reconfiguration turns a creature into a artifact and janky removal.
Master Transmuter eot return an artifact put memnarch on the battlefield is a easier way to win in think but may take away from the focus of the deck.
Neurok Transmuter creature to artifact a bad one but it does things.

A few basic optimizations really stand out to me. For example, swapping Workshop Assistant for the cheaper Myr Retriever or the flying Junk Diver. Etherium Sculptor over Jhoira's Familiar is another- though being fair the former doesn't discount non-artifact legendaries.
Unless you need it as a creature, Spine of Ish Sah is probably better than Meteor Golem especially as it synergizes as sacrifice-fuel, and can be tutored out with Arcum. It has the ability to also take down problematic lands if needed, like Fields of the Dead or a flipped Thaumatic Compass.
I'd also highly, HIGHLY recommend Master Transmuter - she's a wonderful addition, her worst case scenario is flickering your artifacts- getting an additional ETB out of them, by putting back down the same artifact you picked up. Her best is swapping a Sol Ring for a Darksteel Forge at instant-speed.

Drift of Phantasms transmute for many important 3 cmc cards.
Master Transmuter cheat in artifacts.
All That Glitters Perhaps? Or some other way to get bonuses from all the artifacts you run.
Forsaken Monument 1 your pilots are colorless. Also helps ramp if you add in more tech lands.

Very well thought out primer. Was really surprised to see that it was your first! The background and fonts look nice, too. Could never figure out how to get that to work properly. The deck looks great. I'm always glad to see another Rebbec/Glacian deck pop up on here. I do have a lot of recommendations and insight from the games I've played with my own Rebbec/Glacian deck.
(Side note before I get distracted - Blind Obedience has mono white color identity. The black in the reminder text does NOT count towards it's color identity.)
Cards I'd definitely recommend -
Mycosynth Lattice - Turns ALL permanents into artifacts. Perfect for Glacian. I know you said that you're mainly a budget player and that this card is in the "upgrades and future" tab, but this one shoudl definitely be near the top of that list. It's INSANELY good in this deck. Such a high price tag, though. :\ Smothering Tithe is in the same boat.
Liquimetal Torque and Liquimetal Coating - Both provide instant speed protection with Rebbec. Someone tries to cast Doom Blade on her or Glacian (or anyone else)? Tap either of these and they can become an artifact and gain Rebbec's protection.
A few more removal spells would probably be a good idea as well, it's something that my own deck struggles with as well. Dispatch is great. Dispeller's Capsule is removal and also an artifact. Duplicant and Steel Hellkite are both removal that also fill the missing 6 CMC slot in your mana curve.
There are a few tutors in that aren't super overpriced that might be worth looking into. Idyllic Tutor can help find Mechanized Production or Mirrodin Besieged. Fabricate can let you search for any artifact. Any of the artifact mage cards like Trinket Mage, Tribute Mage and Trophy Mage are also worth mentioning. They're a bit limited but they should all be relatively cheap. Another great one I've gotten a lot of use out of is Arcum Dagsson. You can sacrifice an artifact at instant speed to search up another one. Sac a myr token for Darksteel Forge? Oh yes. It also serves as protection with Rebbec as you can sac an artifact to search up one with a specific CMC (er... MV. Never gonna get used to that) that you may happen to need protection from at the time. He serves a similar role to Master Transmuter who I see in the maybeboard.
A special shout out goes to Geode Golem. With the enough artifacts and the protection that Rebbec gives, it should be pretty easy to get him to connect so you can cast Glacian for FREE!
If you wanted to go the "turn all my artifacts sideways at people" route, cards like Sakashima's Will and Masterful Replication work wonders with creatures like Filigree Attendant or Darksteel Juggernaut and Shambling Suit. On the other hand, Rise and Shine from MH2 just animates and tosses counters on things. Much simpler and can achieve the same result of smashed face! I have an Urza, Lord High Artificer deck that focuses on this exact gameplan.
Vedalken Archmage and Endless Atlas are two great card draw engines. One with the Machine is also great but you need something big on the field to really capitalize on it. I see that you have Esper Sentinel in the maybeboard and I can't for the life of me figure out why I didn't add it into my own deck. I just buylisted it a week or two ago. :(
I think that's all I have for now. I've linked my deck below. Feel free to check it out and see if any other ideas pop out at you from there. I'm excited for Kamigawa Neon Dynasty as it seems to have a pretty good artifact theme going on but I have a feeling that The Brother's War set at the end of the year is gonna be HUGE for Rebbec/Glacian!

Plus 1 for a cool build! I too have an affinity for artifacts. I built my artifact deck with Mycosynth Lattice so I could change everything into an artifact, then keep it indestructible with Darksteel Forge. Then, I use Master Transmuter to swap out the big cost cards like my colossus for a land. There's some other cool interactions as well especially if you feel like turning everything into dust with a disk and then swinging your indestructible army for the win. This Breya deck is getting better. Cheers!

Thanks ElderCheese. I agree the high cmc artifacts are big drags in early gameplay. I love snapping them out of the graveyard with Goblin Welder and/or swapping them out of my hand with Master Transmuter or Quicksilver Amulet.
Deadeye Navigator would be a solid add. Appreciate the recommendation.
