Me too. Most of the stuff I actually did with Rabble pre-season (when we had the spoiler). We couldn't quite get the decks to work (because we overestimated some cards like Servo Schematic), but we knew it had potential, and when the contest rolled around I felt compelled to refine our ideas.

I was recently trying to refine my Whir of the Whirler rogues deck now that we have a new interesting 2 drop artifact in Throne of the God-Pharaoh. Kind of a nostalgic look back at an idea I loved but wanted to make the deck more spike. Would love to get your thoughts on what you would change up.

Hopefully you don't mind me sharing this in your thread :D

My original submitted deck for posterity:
Spoiler


My current version:
4 x Inventor's Goggles
3 x Renegade Map
2 x Battle at the Bridge
2 x Scrapheap Scrounger
2 x Key to the City
3 x Servo Schematic
2 x Throne of the God-Pharaoh
3 x Weaponcraft Enthusiast
2 x Whir of Invention
3 x Metallic Rebuke
2 x Aethersphere Harvester
3 x Whirler Rogue
1 x Thopter spy network
1 x Tezzeret the Schemer
1 x Skysovereign, Consul Flagship
4 x Bastion Inventor
1 x Herald of Anguish

9 x Island
2 x Swamp
2 x Sunken Hollow
2 x Drowned Catacomb
2 x Submerged Boneyard
2 x Aether Hub
1 x Westvale Abbey
1 x Inventors' Fair


I will have to get back and edit my actual deck in, I just can't remember all the details. I also have a blue base splash black and red that I like better, it's the deck I think has the most potential but also probably the highest variance.

Edit: So spy network is the questionable card for me. its just too slow.

Over a year has passed, and during the MTGA downtime I played some Duels.

Updated the OP with a Rakdos Midrange list I've used. Building it I leaned with the Rakdos lists that menaced the DOM Standard, this is what came of it:

Creatures (23):
2 x Walking Ballista

3 x Inventor's Apprentice
2 x Bomat Courier

2 x Glint-Sleeve Siphoner
2 x Kari Zev, Skyship Raider
2 x Scrapheap Scrounger

3 x Ahn-Crop Crasher
2 x Pia Nalaar

1 x Hazoret the Fervent
2 x Pia and Kiran Nalaar

2 x Glorybringer

Non-creature spells (12):
3 x Fatal Push

1 x Heart of Kiran
2 x Smuggler's Copter
2 x Cut // Ribbons

3 x Unlicensed Disintegration

1 x Chandra, Torch of Defiance

Lands(25):
1 x Swamp
9 x Mountain
2 x Smoldering Marsh
2 x Dragonskull Summit
3 x Aether Hub
4 x Evolving Wilds
4 x Cinder Barrens


Feels very strong overall. Notable omissions are Dread Wanderer (entering tapped doesn't do the deck any favors), Abbot of Keral Keep (no room, plus the deck might be a tad too high on average CMC for him), Harnessed Lightning (the other 8 removal spells in the deck are better fits IMO and I don't want to overload) and Akoum Firebird (mostly because of the bug with it, but there is not really much room for it either).
