too much, or a Riptide
Replicator, which could hurt. Aside from that,
Steal Artifact is a

Tinker. Not really
effective sideboard here either.
In limited, what are you going to steal? More

Rod of Ruin pops up, and is that really worth
taking? Not really.
Constructed - 1.1/5.0 (There's the 1/100 chance it
