This deck is all about flooding the board with +1/+1 counters and turning those counters into damage. It can execute both parts of the plan in multiple ways, but the core strategy is to use Steel Overseer with Hardened Scales.

Steel Overseer can tap to buff your whole mechanical team, and with Hardened Scales in play, its effects are doubled. If your opponent can't disrupt the combo, these two cards will build an unstoppable robot army. The actual soldiers in that army like Walking Ballista and Hangarback Walker get have additional utility with +1/+1 counters, and they scale (heh) well depending on when in the game you draw them.

How you actually finish off your opponent depends on what's easier in the moment. You can go wide with Animation Module, go tall with a giant unblockable Gingerbrute, or burn them to death with Chamber Sentry.
