Each player exiles all artifact cards from their graveyard, then sacrifices all artifacts they control, then puts all cards they exiled this way onto the battlefield.
Scrap Mastery Discussion

We are avoiding “Changelings” as much as possible Bardz. We do not think they are necessary for the deck. This deck is designed to accrue value and remove problem permanents. This is done almost solely by “flickering” our Scarecrows and/or using mass reanimation spells like Scrap Mastery or Living Death .

Hi McToters, thanks for great suggestions!
First of all, I really like Goblin Engineer . Don't know how have I missed that one. Recursion and tutor on one card seems great. I'm going to have to squeeze that in the deck.
Final Fortune looks fun and great for our casual meta. I'm gonna consider it.
Hoarding Dragon is 5 mana and the deck is already a bit more expensive than I'd like.
Glad you liked my list!

Hey great list! Final Fortune is a personal favorite, and you’re already running Sundial of the Infinite so you wont lose the game on the extra turn when you activate it ;) Definitely not for every deck but something janky and fun to pull off in a casual atmosphere. Glorious End also contributes to keeping some tokens as well but not as good as Sundial. Hoarding Dragon is a not as good artifact tutor, but a great option for casual play. Maybe worth trying. The new Goblin Engineer could be nifty for this deck as well. Not sure if you struggle with card draw but Daretti, Scrap Savant could help in this regard and would contribute to Goblin Engineer ’s handiness. Same with Scrap Mastery . It would add some graveyard recursion overall which I’m not sure you would want to bring the deck that way. It does add artifact synergy though since you are running so many.
Anyway, love me some Valduk! The Sundial combo is one of the coolest ones in Magic IMO. +1

Ok! Sweet build so far! Let me see if I can hell you out. I am a fan of the title by the way.
So Naturally, Feldon’s ability focuses on a few things. They are:
1) it triggers ETBs and graveyard abilties
2) it is a “tap” ability
3) and ARTIFACTS.
Keeping these three things in mind I would suggest the following, some of which may not suit your play-style, but alas! This is why they are suggestions!
Creatures like Inferno Titan , Godo, Bandit Warlord (only useful if you’re running equipments), Bloodfire Colossus , and Zealous Conscripts have value in entering or dying. The new Ilharg, the Raze-Boar may be of semi-interest to you even though he doesn’t have an ETB he is another tool that helps trigger ETBs like Feldon.
I think potentially the most key card you are missing is Sundial of the Infinite so you can keep the token copies that Feldon makes. Plus it’s an artifact you can try and recur since red can do that rather well. In regards to recursion I think you could mull over Goblin Welder and Scrap Mastery . They seen like they could work for you. Goblin Engineer from the soon to come out Modern horizons will be an auto-include for this deck too.
Anyway, this is not to say you dont already have some awesome stuff going on already! If you want my opinion on what to take out for some new stuff let me know. Id be happy to help.

The first thing I think of looking at this new card is reanimator. The next thing I thought was "damn, why couldn't he be in Rakdos?" But anyway....
To me, he could really run well with Daretti, Scrap Savant , being a more efficient way of pitching more artifacts and drawing more cards. What I'm wrestling with is whether he is strong enough to run as the Commander, or in the 99 alongside Daretti or even Feldon of the Third Path . He just screams to pitch artifacts and then cast Scrap Mastery or start digging with Goblin Welder and Daretti.
Here's the drawback I see with him. Its hard to draw cards consistently and keep a full grip in mono red. At 4 CMC, you can get him out early, by turn 2 or 3, depending on how aggressively you can ramp (or what you ramp you can afford). Red does rummage really well, but even then, you are trading cards for cards, and not really gaining much. The Wheel effects will be really helpful once a hand runs dry. I would recommend running Book of Rass as another card draw option, and perhaps a Howling Mine as well.
I think you've got something good started here. Let us know how it plays out for you. I'm really looking forward to seeing how this deck grows.

@Austin_Smith_of_Cards I guess you're right about Ral. I figured he'd be decent card draw with his first ability and putting things in the graveyard wasn't terrible because I do have several pieces of recursion but I hadn't really thought about how bad his other 2 abilities really are. Until now having it written out in front of me I hadn't really counted how many instants and sorcery cards I had.
I had been looking at Magnifying Glass as well. I figured it was one of my weaker options but I liked that it also made clues (which helps up my artifact count) and those clues added to my card draw. So, I kind of looked at it as pulling double duty.
Do you really think Mycosynth Wellspring isn't worth it? I guess I don't have a ton of ways to sacrifice it but I feel like it's a good when using Trash for Treasure , Scrap Mastery , Goblin Welder , Kuldotha Forgemaster , and Daretti, Scrap Savant . It also is good to bring back with Myr Retriever , Junk Diver , and Scrap Trawler . Is it just that this isn't enough options, or are these just too narrow of circumstances?
What are your opinions of Vedalken Orrery ? I know giving my spells flash is good, but is it worth it in this deck? I always want to use it but I feel like it's always one of the last cuts I make in most decks, but I was hoping it'd have more value in an artifacts matters deck.
