Intimidation Bolt Discussion

Someday will replace Renegade Tactics with a similar instant that gives me draw. But not this day. Not this day.

Questions about the following....
Restore the Peace - Weak?
Settle the Wreckage - Seems like a lot of mana to hold up for a situation(al). How has it been for you?
Juntu Stakes - Is this against decks that have lots of mana dorks/a meta stax piece?

I like this deck! For your consideration, Boros Charm to protect the fortress, Intimidation Bolt for if things get a little out of control or want to plan differently (smpke an opponents hatebear while preventing your creatures from swinging or hitting an opponents creature because you need one more turn to prepare), Labyrinth of Skophos, Harsh Justice and Deflecting Palm to turn the tables, and Stalking Leonin for more removal. Keep up the great work!

I would cut:
Insufficiently on theme - these are good cards but don´t take advantage of your commander or what you´re trying to do. Magnetic Theft , Comeuppance , Electrodominance , Lapse of Certainty , Panic , Return to Dust , Teferi's Protection , Temur Battle Rage , Titan's Strength , Wear , Acrobatic Maneuver , Wheel of Fortune , Blasphemous Act , Day of Judgment , Empty the Warrens , Faithless Looting , Gamble , Kari Zev's Expertise , Wrath of God ,
Paradox Engine was recently banned in commander.
Given that I cut more than the needed 16 I´ll point out a couple feather allstars you´re missing.
Aurelia's Fury - does so much. One damage to one of your creatures and you have repeatable tapping, removal, and combo protection. Intimidation Bolt - repeatable fog when targeting your own creature. Spawning Breath - this is your smothering tithe replacement, mana, creatures for Zada to target, and removal in a pinch all on an instant. Orim's Thunder - kicked is the best repeatable enchantment and artifact removal I´ve found.

I’m hung up on
Aurelia's Fury : expensive, not a ton of play
Intimidation Bolt : not always worried about being attacked with all the token defense
Reckless Rage : doesn’t hit everything, sometimes it’s good though
Wrath of God : idk, need right cards in hand to play
Grapeshot : reckless rage feels better

You dont need to worry about the competitive level of a deck. It doesn't really mean a whole lot on this site lol.
How I usually play my Feather, the Redeemed is ONLY if I have a draw engine in hand, or have Sunforger on the field already. Otherwise I usually play like a stax deck as I tutor with smaller creatures. And yeah most of your tutors will be luck of the draw, which is why we try and include as many of them as possible.
All in all I can only really make changes to your deck based on how competitive your meta is, or what kind of decks they bring. for instance cards like Stonehorn Dignitary would never work in my deck since there is only one player in our group that cares about the combat step. Also when adding stax pieces like Intimidation Bolt you need as many Paradox Engine tutors as possible, since casting a card every turn in order to lock them down can be hard (also remember you wont ALWAYS need to cast Intimidation Bolt , since not everyone needs to attack for their deck to win).

If you take a look at my deck list you'll see that I've added Thalia's Lancers . Tell you the truth, it's great... and not that great. I don't have a tutor for it so I'm relying on luck of the draw (which sucks by the way).
You'll also see that I've added Stonehorn Dignitary which is great because I can tutor for it, and cast Cloudshift and lock down opponents that rely on combat to trigger their tricks or stop them from killing... ever. I found it easier to lock down opponents pre-Paradox phase by using only 1 White per opponent's turn instead of using Intimidation Bolt that costs 3 mana per opponent's turn (THAT'S 9 MANA!!).
I took out Boros Charm and it made my competitive level from 87% to 94%, go figure... I have no idea why it would go up that much.

VaalVanir Intimidation Bolt is a decent inclusion. I dont run it but I see a lot of other lists run it. You need to be careful with it tho, even if Feather, the Redeemed has 4 toughness. But having a recurring fog effect every turn is nice against the large number of mono green Craterhoof Behemoth combo decks out there as well.
Also do not underestimate infinite colorless mana. You can win the game off of a single cast of Aurelia's Fury , but honestly I wouldn't consider it if it didn't also let you tutor 2 cards with a single activation of Sunforger
