I'm not sure exactly yet, but there has to be something juicy.
    That seems like a very different deck, one that probably wants Mystic Forge to also cast all the free spells off the top.

    e.g.


    //Artifacts: 18
    4 Lotus Petal
    4 Mox Opal
    4 Springleaf Drum
    1 Pithing Needle
    1 Aether Spellbomb
    1 Shadowspear
    3 Mystic Forge

    //Creatures: 20
    4 Ornithopter
    4 Memnite
    4 Frogmite
    4 Sojourner's Companion
    4 Thought Monitor

    //Spells: 6
    4 Thoughtcast
    2 Paradoxical Outcome

    //Lands: 16
    4 Urza's Saga
    4 Seat of the Synod
    4 Darksteel Citadel
    4 Island

    //Sideboard: 15
    1 Relic of Progenitus
    3 Tormod's Crypt
    4 Nettlecyst
    4 Metallic Rebuke
    1 Flusterstorm
    2 Dismember


    The problem with this strategy is that to make room for Outcome/Forge you can't cut 0-drops, so you have to cut business. The deck then gets very good at drawing cards but becomes worse at playing aggro. If you cut 0 drops instead, it loses the gas to make the engine work. I think your aggro plan is better than this.

    Good responses, I did see the Emry list. Replaying Monitors sounds really good, along with the dig and body.
