Pia's Revolution Discussion

Leatherankh on Reckless PanInfinicon

Murphy77 I will go through your recommendations one by one:

Fevered Visions is a great card, but it is a real double-edged sword in the current aggressive meta. Most decks are quick enough to get down below 4 cards pretty easily, so all you're doing is giving them more gas. I'd rather stick with draw 3 for (usually) 2 mana.

Ornithopter just flat out doesn't work with this deck. The reason I use Cogworker's Puzzleknot and Servo Schematic is because they are artifacts that make more artifacts upon ETB. For example, let's say I have a Pan, a Gremlins and a Fireweaver in play. If I cast a HornyFlopter it deals two damage from the Fireweaver and pumps the Gremlin +4/+0. If I cast a Puzzleknot it would deal 6 damage (2 for itself, 2 for the servo, and 2 off the additional servo from the Pan) and pump the the Gremlin +12/+0, which unblocked would be lethal in one play. So, huge difference.

Pia's Revolution and Perpetual Timepiece are great if you have artifacts that end up in the graveyard a bunch, but that's not the case for this deck. Half my artifacts are tokens, the other half usually just sit there on the battlefield unless they get hit by Abrade, so those two wouldn't do much work and would just clog up an already complicated deck. Now I have seen some really cool builds using those two with Ravenous Intruder and Scrap Trawler along with a bunch of Implements. But that's a completely different deck idea.

Thanks for the feedback!

Have you considered Fevered Visions in place of Reverse Engineer? I like to think that free summoning of Ornithopter does more later in the game than Cogworker's Puzzleknot or Servo Schematic, which are better early-game cards. The focus must always be to get infinite thopters - when Reckless Fireweaver will win the game, or Salivating Gremlins will bulldoze any resistance. To this end, I would consider adding in at least 2 Pia's Revolution to keep artifacts coming back to your hand, or something like Perpetual Timepiece to get them back into your library.

I would cut the Multiform Wonders, Consulate Turrets, and Pia's Revolution. They don't do enough.

I would add as many Bristling Hydras as you can get. They end the game almost on the spot if they aren't countered due to the hexproof part.

If you want to go the Electrostatic Pummeler route, then you need the full 4x pummeler, 4x Larger Than Life, 4x Blossoming Defense. Otherwise, I'd cut them.

I second Longtusk Cub and Voltaic Brawler. They are massive threats for only 2 mana.

I would cut a few lands for Attune with Aether since you don't have any Turn 1 plays anyway, its a good way to make some energy.

Greenbelt Rampager should be in here as well.

Adding at least a few 0 drop artifacts like an Ornithopter would help out the deck a lot. If you had Atog and Pia's Revolution on the battlefield and cast a 0 drop artifact, you could sac it to Atog and Pia's Revolution would return it to your hand allowing you to repeat it an infinite number of times.

Entomo yea, I think swapping the Abrade would be a good idea and I have been searching for something to swap Pia's Revolution for, but I would be concerned with having Chandra, Torch of Defiance because I want to swing out and reduce their life as quick as possible which would leave her unprotected. If I was to swap Foundry Inspector, I would need it to be something really good because Foundry Inspector is insane in this deck.

maybe drop the Chief of the Foundry and add in a spicy non construct? Seems like he won't do that much as there isn't a lot of hand refill. Also maybe swap Abrade for something to the face, Incendiary Flow and 1 more Unlicensed Disintegration, but I can see the benefit of instant speed removal against mono red. I have been super underwhelmed by Pia's Revolution. Seems slow and inconsistent. Maybe just do like red decks and add in Chandra, Torch of Defiance instead?

TepigAggro Im sorry if the labeling as a standard deck is wrong and if the sideboard is twice the size it should be, but I use this site mainly to organize myself in my decks, so I just put a bunch of interesting cards in my sideboard and I don't play competitive, only with my friends, so I dont care about the standard illegal cards. And yeah, even if it's a modern deck and even if I could use better cards from older expansions, I use kaladesh a lot because I know this expansion better and because it's artifact related.

So again, sorry for misleading you, this is a casual modern deck that I made simply because I liked Pia's Revolution

If you were to run Panharmonicon along with Reckless Fireweaver and say, Servo Schematic and or Cogworker's Puzzleknot you could dish out some serious damage in a single turn.

Panharmonicon would double the servo's created from either of those spells and also double the damage triggers from the Fireweaver as well. If you put that on top of Pia's Revolution, it would be pretty crazy.

You could also consider using no cost artifacts, like Ornithopter or Bone Saw or Cathar's Shield, that way you can keep slamming them on the board, dealing damage with the Fireweaver until your opponent has enough and chooses to pay the 3 life to send it to the graveyard.

Ohhh and Ravenous Intruder could even set that up for an infinite loop. Well, like I said, infinite until they pay the 3 life to kill it.

Cool stuff though, hope my suggestions help!
