A lot of inspiration taken from really great list around the internet but mostly blood pod got me started brewing this list. I also looked at Glissa, Oloro, Zur and Augustin stax lists to adjust to the colors and artifact theme.

The main goal of the deck is to lock out opponents and keep their combos from ever reaching the table. Zur's Weirding is a nice one card lock since Rilas allows us to play out of the graveyard and generally hurts the other players much more.

Ending the game is accomplished generally through combat damage with hatebears and Arcbound Ravager. I included three infinite combos:

Thopter Foundry, Sword of the Meek and Krark-Clan Ironworks for infinite life, thopters and colorless mana. Walking Ballista can kill the tavle that turn.

Auriok Salvagers, Lion's Eye Diamond for infinite mana. Walking Ballista or Blind Obedience is the wincon.

Isochron Scepter, Dramatic Reversal and mana rocks producing atleast 2 colorless and one colored mana. To win either Walking Ballista or Blind Obedience is required though you can draw the entire deck with Sensei's Divining Top.

Like blood pod the combos are not a priority. I chose these combos because the pieces are mostly artifacts and operate fairly well on their own with the rest of the deck.

Anyways, thanks for taking a look! Suggestions are always welcome.
