Deck discussion for Counter thought

I would focus on Arcbound Crusher, Reclaimer, Stinger, Worker, and Overseer as your core creatures, maybe a playset of each. Coretapper is dope too, I would have a playset of him in your sideboard. Need to find the balance between your charge counter necessity and modular capability. By reducing the cards down to pkaysets, you can increase your odds of getting what you want, and you could nix Darksteel Pendant. Mourner's shield and Thought prison are both god defense mechanics, downside is they are expensive CC. If you are going modern cool, if this is casual replace all your lands with artifact lands, those with Arcbound Crusher would be good, lands late game have more use, since it is a low CC deck. Ratchet Bomb is only going to kill certain creatures equal to the charge counters, I would side board it. I think it would be cool if you could find a way to untap Steel Overseer as well, get a couple +1+1 counters a turn.

Steel Overseer is sick, but they are like 10 - 15 a pop right now.
