Hangarback walker wasn't being played because the deck needed an XX creature. Hangarback does lots of things well, especially in combination with smokestack and arcbound ravager.
Scrap Trawler also works amazingly with those cards, and I already have a plan for Legacy affinity. Walking Balista's printing solidifies the deck as an official new tier 1.5 archetype that will need to be developed. (As opposed to this rogue list I was running with the abyss before). This cards printing is bittersweet to me, as much as I needed it, now I won't be the only person on the deck..... a huge advantage in legacy when no net decks exist.
I could see null rod spiking through the roof if legacy affinity takes off. It already should be higher considering it's the lynchpin of budget vintage decks...but I digress.
Another card that is becoming more interesting, but still has a long long way to go is Metaic Mimic.
Also, keep in mind Foundry Inspector is a construct.
Cavern of Souls becomes an important card to focus attention on if a "constructs" list starts popping up in legacy/vintage.
(For the record, I created my legacy affinity list in response to the DCI restricting Lodestone Golem in vintage. #FreeGolem #Forever4Lodes)
