Despite the fact that I myself bombed out of my Event runs, I believe that this is the best deck in Expedition as of now! Reclaim and Icaria are a really strong pair : )

The problem is that it's weak against aggro, which is very popular in Expedition.

I disagree about it being weak to aggro. Defiance, torch and runehammer are all excellent in the aggro matchup. Furthermore, an early icaria is great at stabilizing. Lastly, on another note, I don’t actually think aggro is very good in expedition despite the fact that I’m seeing a lot of it.

Defiance and Torch are great, runehammer is okay (gets past aegis but it's still 4 power for spot removal). It just isn't enough though unless you get the perfect draw or they get a terrible one. Early Icaria isn't all that likely since reclaim is the only ramp you have, and to get the onslaught you need to not only not block with your merchant the turn you play it but the next turn as well. Whether aggro is actually correct to play or not, it's very prevalent and I don't think this deck has a good matchup.

I suppose we can agree to disagree on this one : )

While I agree with you that the deck as-is is fine against aggro, if you wanted to really target aggro there's always the option to swap smugglers and run a Primal market for Lightning Storm. Compared to your market I had Storm, Token, swapped Vanq/Ice Bolt positions, Mokhnati for late-game value, and the last slot was flexible.
