This deck might be interested in the recent downshift of Myr Retriever...

abbatromebone - I actually just threw a couple Myr Retriever in there right as you commented this!! Just on the off chance they get to go infinite. I don't wanna focus this thing on a infinite combo though, hope you get that. :P

  • Interesting idea Heartless MyrThis is my version of the deck. Ignore the faithless looting ban and replace it with Cathartic Reunion or Merchant of the Vale. It loops 2x Myr Retriever and then uses an engine like yours to either Grapeshot or Grinding Station.
  • Your going to want as many ways to find heartless summoning for consistancy as well. Turns out heatless summoning decks arent as good without heartless summoning.
  • Im willing to help you out with advice, deck building or really anything. Ill do my best to help.

Hero of Bladehold effects if you go on the Heartless path.

Illness in the Ranks is better if you want Krenko's Command effects.

Blade Splicer with heartless.

Cruel Celebrant

Bastion of Remembrance. Ministrant of Obligation Myr Retriever x4 because if you draw 2 you go infinite with Heartless.

Pestilent Haze. Impact Tremors

I think Myr Retriever is illegal in pauper.

Ok, I really like the concept of the deck, and as a combo player having somthing like this in pauper would make me much more interested in the format.

But I don't know if you can do a KCI style deck in pauper, here are some of the problems I have found playing this deck:

KCI was based around playing Krark-Clan Ironworks, and a bunch of card neutral mana positive/mana neutral card positive artifacts while using Scrap Trawler for both more mana and cards until you can set up an infinite loop. In pauper, you can't get the same quality of artifacts (well, you can, but you can't sac them to Ashnod's Altar), and you are going to be settling for mana positive card negative or double neutral or whatever. Combined with the fact that we don't have a recursion engine (in my testing the biggest problem for combo decks in this format) outside of Reaping the Graves, it becomes a nightmare to storm off.

Etherium Sculptor seems 100% key to having a chance at storming off, alowing Workshop Assistant and eggs to be double neutral and Myr Retriever to be mana positive, this card gives you a glimmer of hope of storming off, but you really don't have enough ways to draw cards. Most of the stuff you have are card neutral, and Thoughtcast has proven very difficult to play (even then, it isn't part of the combo so you can't get it back etc.) and having only 4 draw two cards isn't enough for the consistency you want for comboing.

Anyhow, thoose were some of my problems with this deck in it's current form. My best idea so far is to stop going for draw-through-entire-deck-make-a-bunch-of-mana, and lean more into: cantrip a few times, make some mana, go infinite. Until we can get a card like KCI that sacs artifacts and gains mana (for stuff like Ichor Wellspring, making trinkets mana posiitive and card neutral etc.) Even then, we still don't have scrap trawler so it would probably still be inconsistent.

Just some thoughts, good luck with your deck!

You may want to include a way to give haste to your creatures so you get value out of them the turn they hit play. Flamekin Village and Dragon Breath are good options as they are reusable and cheap to use.

Squee, Goblin Nabob is a reusable discard fodder which essentially draws you a card each time you discard it. Treat it like a red Phyrexian Arena in this loot heavy deck.

There are some good board wipes like All Is Dust and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon that your deck is barely touched by. I can understand if they are too expensive to include but they are worth mentioning.

Some good alternative grave recursion are Trash for Treasure, Myr Retriever, Pia's Revolution, Feldon of the Third Path, & Goblin Engineer. Sometimes Daretti can't survive in play so it's nice to have more back ups.

It seems like your Thopter Foundry, Salvage Titan, and your other artifacts clash. The artifacts you have require sacrificed to be used. So you could be in a game waiting to sacrifice them until you get a Thopter Foundry or Salvage Titan that may or may not come. Or the opposite happens where you sacrifice your artifacts for their effects and then you can't take advantage of the 2 cards your really want out. I would look getting out artifacts like equipments or maybe some cheap Myrs.

Look into Myr Propagator, Alloy Myr, Gold Myr, Hovermyr, Leaden Myr, Myr Battlesphere, Myr Moonvessel, Myr Retriever, Myr Sire, Myr Turbine, and Palladium Myr. These all serve as a quick creatrue to get out, supply more mana for the big creatrues, or even supply you with plenty of endless artifacts for Thopter Foundry and Salvage Titan.
