Ironclad Revolutionary Discussion

This deck needs Scrap Trawler like neeeeeeeds. Could run either Embraal Gear-Smasher or Ironclad Revolutionary either would be really good, Defiant Salvager is also very good. I would also run 4 copies or Marionette Master like that card is crazy in this deck. Other then that good concept, side board recs would be Release the Gremlins or Gremlin Infestation depending on budget. Other then that seems really fun and budget, good job :)

If you like the card, i'm not going to be the one to tell you not to use it. it just means that you need to find cards that you will be ok with sacrificing to it that also help out with the rest of the deck. With that said:
Servo Schematic is a great card to sac. it's also a good target for Tezzeret's Touch, because if destroyed, it will die, go to graveyard, produce a token, then get returned to your hand to be played again for another token. then if you sac it, you get the benefit from Ironclad Revolutionary and ANOTHER servo token when it goes into the grave a second time.
Implement of Examination is another card that wouldn't be too bad to sacrifice. while not being as good as the schematic, an extra card for your troubles is better than nothing.
Treasure Keeper wouldn't be the first card i would choose to sac because of it already being a 3/3 body, however it is also a viable target, and if you can get out a Scrap Trawler before you do so, then it makes the pain lessen as you can return an artifact with cmc 3 or less from the grave to your hand.
speaking of which, Scrap Trawler is fantastic with cards that require sacing artifacts to work. especially when you have a wide range of cmc costs. for instance, its possible to go from a Treasure Keeper to an Implement of Examination sacing it to draw 2 cards, grab a Servo Schematic, then when that dies, you can grab a 1 mana artifact. (im currently running Hope of Ghirapur, and when that dies go get an Ornithopter back. its a little broken, though it might take a turn or two to go through the cycle.
Dukhara Peafowl is exactly as bad as you think it is btw haha. it might have its moment once in a while, but its nothing fancy.
Dhund Operative on the other hand is actually not a bad card. a reliable 3/2 deathtouch for 2 mana is nothing to sneeze at. if you can make it work with him, then i say go for it. he makes your opponent have to think twice about turning is bigger creatures sideways as the deathtouch will obviously just gobble them up.
i've also found that Bastion Inventor just doesn't do enough to be worth it, and was one of the first cards i cut when i changed up the deck. Do you agree or did i just miss something in him? i mean i cut him so early i never really got the chance to use him, so i could have been mistaken.

LithiumHD. so basically all I do with my improvise deck is to see whether or not a creature has improvise or not, if it doesn't then add an artifact instead? But, also taking in consideration the creatures that take advantage of having artifacts? For an example, Dhund Operative gets +1/0 and deathtouch if I have an artifact in play.
I do not have a good feeling about Dukhara Peafowl, it does get flying which could be useful, but I think there could be a much better card in its place.
With Ironclad Revolutionary, I like what it does, but I do not like the idea of having to sacrifice an artifact to do it.

Temple of Malice is the only non-standard legal card here. You also have no red cards to make use of it, so it should be replaced with a different land.
At the moment you have 64 cards, which should be cut down to 60 for the best consistency. I would remove the cards that don't have much synergy with the rest of your deck. Alms of the Vein, Conduit of Ruin, Dimensional Infiltrator, Silent Skimmer, and Stromkirk Condemned could all be removed.
If you need to make more cuts, I would just start cutting down on some of the expensive spells, like Ironclad Revolutionary. Replacing some expensive spells with something like Merchant's Dockhand would also let you remove a couple lands.
Good luck with your deck!

Also, unless you are going to use Universal Solvent to sacrifice from Defiant Salvager you can cut those as well, and the Ironclad Revolutionary. Foundry Hornet and Fourth Bridge Prowler only trigger once, so the can be cut as well. Toss Creeping Dread as it is too conditional to be really effective. Farbog Revenant, Fen Hauler, Prizefighter Construct, and Ghoulcaller's Accomplice can all go. This cuts the deck to 70 cards, so I will amend my statement about the swamps and you can cut those to 23 swamps.

So even less lands? Considering you have seven cards with CMC five or more, I think you should go to at least 22 lands. And that still is not much. Btw, I think Ambitious Aetherborn and Ironclad Revolutionary could be cut as they really don't seem that great.
The scrounger seems like a great idea though. Try it :)

I actually really like Weaponcraft Enthusiast and Metallic Mimic in this deck. Even consider something like Animation Module. This makes the deck a lot of fun. You're generating a lot of counters, and then you can make an extra Servo by paying 1 more. You can even play a Metallic Mimic and give those new Servos +1/+1 counters. Aetherborn Marauder will have a lot more to work with when you play him.
I even think this makes Ironclad Revolutionary viable. You can bring him in, sacrifice a Servo, and get some easy burn in. This would only work in Mono-black though.
My friend and I were really tinkering with this. I like this deck a lot!
