I don't see the use in adding white as an extra color for a creature here.

What I would do is remove Leonin Squire , Arid Mesa , Godless Shrine , Plains , and Sacred Foundry . Substitute the creature with one of these: - Trading Post - Skeleton Shard - Fortuitous Find - Myr Retriever , OR - Scrap Trawler

The Arid Mesa , Godless Shrine , Plains , and Sacred Foundry can be traded out for mountains and swamps, as well as: - Cinder Barrens - Canyon Slough (this has Cycling, so would be good for drawing) - Akoum Refuge - Blackcleave Cliffs - Bloodfell Caves - Dragonskull Summit , AND/OR - Buried Ruin , which would give you additional room to return artifacts

Soldevi Digger... why Soldevi Digger? You might appreciate something like Scarecrone or Skeleton Shard instead, for getting your chimeras back again and again.

Oh I forgot to mention, I tried your deck with Spire of Industry instead of Horizon Canopy and Skeleton Shard as an engine for lategame card advantage.

And you don't have to sac your manabase for draw, instead you can use it for more activations of the shard, the walkers or to bring bigger ballistas in.

Worked fine for me

Hi :)

What do you think about Skeleton Shard? Since I don't have Horizon Canopys I tried to come up with a budget alternative. And I think together with Voltaic Servant it synergises good in this deck.

I'm a huge fan of this deck, since I'm working on a competative modern counters deck for months already. :)

Maybe you can look at my try on this mechanic? It would mean much to me :) link to my deck

WalkingIllusion The infect stuff was based on the idea that I can use recurrsion to keep using them to drop infect counters on people and the creatures could just walk in. But I did pull all but Inkmoth nexus (because I can use it with hatred to instakill a player if needed) and a Phyrexian Juggernaut (which would work sweet with Blade of Selves and the Mirage Mirror to take out multiple people at once). Blightsteel Colossus is listed but I'm actually running the Darksteel Colossus instead because Blightsteel colossus is kinda boring to play. I may go back to an infect version but I'm liking the direction this is going now. As for your counterspells suggestion, I need to decide if I'm going with cheap CMC counters or some of the bigger ones.

jpsuchecki So Skeleton Shard is a good idea - need to fig out what to replace. Buried Ruin will go in and replace another land - I also have Academy Ruins which is sweet, but more ways to pull from my graveyard gives me more of an excuse to run Codex Shredder ;) Command Tower - not sure how I didn't add that. And probably Command Beacon too since Vela isn't cheap to cast. Rhystic Study... I.. want to add it... but i always want to add it... but "didja pay yer 1?? didja pay yer 1??" really starts to annoy my local group ;)

Ledian Hmm. I think i may have Steel Overseer. I do agree there are better options than Seer's Lantern, and I think I will add Voltaic Key.

Thanks, y'all!

Scrap Trawler and/or Skeleton Shard for graveyard retrieval. Buried Ruin is a land that does the same thing, but one-time use (still might be worth it). Swap something like Submerged Boneyard for Command Tower. Rhystic Study is a great card draw especially in multiplayer.

If you're considering Throne of Geth consider Contagion Engine as an alternative.

Also, I know some people hate this card but Mycosynth Lattice could work nicely here.

I would write a better description of what you're trying to achieve. It is kind of hard to offer advice when all you have to go on is "win by flying." Other than that I would suggest cards that help reduce the cost. Cloud Key, Foundry Inspector, Mycosynth Golem, and Semblance Anvil. Skeleton Shard is a nice graveyard retrieval. Energy Chamber is nice for a counter. I know you said you're on a budget, but consider Mycosynth Lattice and Darksteel Forge (a destroy all artifacts would easily shut this deck down). I use Consulate Crackdown and Mycosynth Lattice as an alternate win condition.

If you found this helpful, please return the favor.

NicS18 thanks for the suggestions. To be honest i used to run both Darksteel Forge and Mycosynth Lattice with Arcum Dagsson, but was a little to much.
Now that I think about it Dagsson was the problem, i will try to run the combo without him maybe.

jpsuchecki I love Panharmonicon but i have four maybe five ETB triggers in this deck, it's not really worth it.
I never used Skeleton Shard but it's fast and cheap enough for give it a chance, i like it, thanks!
