Quote from the nobodys »Given that, I may try a more sultai land base and put in some Vraska, Golgari Queen to do the same role.

Quote from D90Dennis14 »Here is a new take on Forgemaster mixed with Sai - https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/budget-magic-97-16-tix-ur-sai-master-modern
The idea looks pretty interesting though I don't think that The Antiquities War is good enough here.
I'd probably replace it with: 2x Thirst for Knowledge, 1x Trading Post and 1x more tutor target like Steel Hellkite for removal (or Wurmcoil Engine).
Also, Red is mainly used for removal here so White might be the better option which also gives the deck a way to deal with Stony Silence which UR can't permanently remove.
Besides PtE/Dispatch and SB cards I'm not sure what else white can add to the maindeck here though Board the Weatherlight seems like a possible dig option as an overcosted Ancient Stirrings equivalent that finds Sai as well.
Another option is to add Thopter Foundry + Sword of the Meek to the deck which can help grind out longer games if the big threats are answered.
The ramp package of 4x Mind Stone + 4x Signet/Talisman isn't bad but might be a bit slow and Ichor Wellspring works really well with sac'-outlets but might be too slow otherwise so maybe Chromatic Star/Terrarion would be better as cheaper cyclers that trigger Sai and sac' to Forgemaster.
