Hi I'm Henry Romero... I won that PTQ in Portland, Oregon... but thanks for the mention.
 
Welding Jar? That seems off, that doesn't give you red or green mana. Springleaf Drum and Mox Opal do, and the Jar is good against Grudge, but I don't understand

and Glimmervoid and Welding Jar help set up red (and green!) for Whipflare (essentially no downside) and Ancient Grudge (so much upside).



at all.

You need an artifact in play to keep the Glimmervoid around at the end of your turn. I assumed he meant the Welding Jar was a good, 0-CMC artifact to stick a Glimmervoid in the early turns.

I would say Ornithopters and Memnites do that just as well.
