Nice deck (+1), I wonder if Trash for Treasure or Skysovereign, Consul Flagship would work here as a one of.

Neat idea!

Are you asking for just self-recurring artifacts or artifact recursion in general because and are very good at the latter. For the former, your options are a little limited without . I'd look at artifacts with "unearth", or artifacts like Spine of Ish Sah, Scrap Trawler or Myr Retriever. If you want more general artifact recursion then I'd recommend Daretti, Scrap Savant, Goblin Engineer, Scrap Mastery, Trading Post, and Trash for Treasure. Most of these can be safely played at the precon power level. Some recursion effects that are on the stronger end are Goblin Welder, Portal to Phyrexia, Emry, Lurker of the Loch, and Academy Ruins. These are stronger in my opinion because of their efficiency, repeatability, and they possess fewer constraints.

As far as "how to build a precon level deck" goes, I wouldn't worry about purposely nerfing the deck per say, but maybe asking yourself "could a precon handle the synergies, resiliency, and value engines that my deck creates?". Ultimately though, I think the best advice I can give is to build the deck that you want to build, and that you think is precon level. Then play it against some precons. That will give you the best feel for where you deck is at and if you need to add or remove things.

Ya unfortunately this latest didn’t seem to add much in the way of cheating out artifacts other than Mishra, Tamer of Mak Fawa, but the artifact creatures it added seem pretty solid.

If you want some early game reliability and speed you could try out Mind Stone and/or Talisman of Conviction in place of Pentad Prism since they don't run out of uses. And I know you're running a couple of Ornithopters as a cheap way to combo off with Trash for Treasure but I think you might actually be better off using Ornithopter of Paradise in its place. I also like what you’re doing with Unmarked Grave and if you want to go with a more equipment artifact route then you could always add in a couple Stoneforge Mystic, but then you’d probably just be running into the same problem you’ve stated with your deck just feeling like a slightly weaker version of a different archetype.

Hopefully this helps!

For a set that has a big theme of digging up old machines and sending them into combat, there's not much in BRO that's better than Refurbish or Trash for Treasure. I was hoping for some more core pieces to update a Modern artifact reanimator deck.

Thanks for the suggestion, legendofa! Trash for Treasure would pair well with Solemn Simulacrum. The only problem is, I'm not sure where I would fit it into the deck and what to take out for it.

I'm actually currently trying out a version of this deck that uses Sundial of the Infinite in place of Void Maw (and Braids, Arisen Nightmare since I'll no longer need to sac in response to Unearth exile triggers) because waiting one extra turn to get Maw out before I start Unearthing feels like it's slowing the deck down too much. So this version of the deck may change if I like how Sundial feels.

Any special thoughts on Trash for Treasure? There aren't really many small artifacts in this build, but it's castable on turn 3 after a Thrill of Possibility.

If I may shamelessly plug my (very outdated, in need of updates and tuning) artifact reanimator, Dead Metal. It's more focused on "traditional" reanimation than unearthing everything, but maybe you could get some ideas (or give me some ideas).

Perhaps Chandra's Ignition instead of alpha brawl?

Humble Defector instead of mad prophet? or some cheaper loot effect? 4 mana tap to loot is expensive.

A few ideas I don't know where to suggest cutting.
