Barricade Breaker Discussion

I would recommend adding more Reverse Engineer. It looks like the deck could have a lull after playing all the 0 mana cost cards.

Also, if the opponent kills your Tireless Tracker and Barricade Breaker then you're in trouble. Survive the Night could save them if you had enough mana open for it, but Blossoming Defense can do even more for you for less mana. That's my go-to saver card.

Looks like a pretty fun deck though! Good luck!

PriestessKikyo1 pie does not count side.

You just want to make sure that your average cmc doesn't get too high. Because they both have improvise, you can generally assume that the average casting cost in game for both the Herald of Anguish and Barricade Breaker to be dropped by 2-3 placing them around 4 and 5 mana creatures respectively. With that being said , They are still very much on the higher end of the mana spectrum. And an opening hands with 2 of each, (albeit not likely) is not going to be a fun hand to play, so just watch out.

On a side note, (wait for the pun to make sense) have you tested the deck with your sideboard cards any?

Made some more cuts and a few new additions. Played a few more games and getting to 5 creatures before 5 mana and 1 Westvale Abbey  Flip seems to be no problem, but I sacrifice the entire board to flip. I've pulled out Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter and replaced with Barricade Breaker due to escalate on Collective Effort being very strong. I've also swapped in Second Harvest for Obsessive Skinner due to a lack of need to trigger Animation Module which has also been removed. Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Animation Module removed made room for 2x Skywhaler's Shot for a bit more control and free casts on Sram's Expertise.

I would love a bit more feedback at this point especially regarding Barricade Breaker and Second Harvest as additions.

I do like the Barricade Breaker + Key to the City though. It's a solid move that does a lot of damage and can't be blocked.

As far as Herald of Anguish is concerned, I would take replace the two Barricade Breaker. To me it makes sense because they both take up that 7 mana slot, and you don't want to have all of those 7 mana creatures, because you are going to need the other creatures to be low cost artifact creatures that are going to allow you to use Herald of Anguish's Improvise mechanic, as that will probably be the only way you will be able to cast that card in the majority of games. I would slowly work on replacing the majority of your creatures with practical utility artifact creatures that have decent bodies along with mechanics that all synergize towards the same goal.

You need a finisher like Barricade Breaker or the Metalwork Colossus since this is based on an improvise deck.

I also suggest changing to Red-Blue for Maverick Thopterist.

Instead of Wind-Kin Raiders you could go for Barricade Breaker, which gives you more aggro and synergizes better with your other improvise spells. Same goes for Metallic Mimic, as it can boost your artificers (while equipping Inventor's Goggles to itselves) an can be used to pay for your improvise.
