Ravenous Intruder Discussion

- Heart-Piercer Manticore could replace Fling in the Ravenous Intruder plan just cos it's better in a vacuum and does the job almost as well.
- Captain Lannery Storm probably does a better job of ramping on turn 3 but Hazoret's Monument could be a nice 1 or 2 of as it ramps you into all of your payoffs (besides Sunbird's Invocation) and fixes your draws in the late game.
- Fight with Fire is the sideboard hate of choice for Lyra Dawnbringer and in this deck could be a payoff for your ramp in a pinch (not to mention lyra and Settle the Wreckage usually go together)
- if you're not too attached to the Ravenous Intruder combo Brass's Bounty Reckless Fireweaver is a fun alternative that works well with sunbird's invocation.

Budget sacrifice brews are kinda cool.
Abusing artifact mechanics tends to be more effective due to the low price of Atog, Ravenous Intruder,Slag Fiend and Pia's Revolution- give this list a try Budget B/R sacrifice which contains a mess of untested options.
It fares badly with modern decks sideboarding against affinity, and the affinity matchup isn't great, but if you're prepared to pick up a set of Heartless Summoning you can start turning it into some spicy combo brews.

Ravenous Intruder seems kinna bad for sb
Chandra, Torch of Defiance seems perfect for this deck, removal, ramp and card advantage. but it is rotating out so its up to you
Jaya's Immolating Inferno isnt actually that good in this deck, the deck is better of running things that dont have x in the cost as sunbirds doesnt work with it, same goes with kicker, as it will trigger sunbirds for less than you payed or if you cast it off sunbirds you have to pay the kicker cost in addition
Gilded Lotus is interesting as it fits poorly on the curve but once sunbirds it out it wil let you cast more things a turn, it probably needs some playtesting to see if it is worth it

@Onyxio I think Ravenous Intruder is better in decks that can produce a lot of artifacts (like servo's), in this deck it will probably be able to sac like 2/3 artifacts and it also dies to Phyrexian Scriptures. I think Fling might be a bit too aggressive and it sucks if it gets countered. Pia's Revolution is an interesting card, but I'm not quite sure what I would cut for it, I don't think I can cut any more creatures, but the noncreature spells feel like they're stronger than Pia's Revolution. Abrade is a very strong card (which I would probably even try to fit in mainboard, but if it's the only card to splash red, I'd rather not do that, since then I can run a lot of colorless lands with upside.

Thank you very much for your help razelfark!
I am also concerned about what you say, I don't know if the deck will be consistent enough in order to get a combo before dying. The good part is that most of the pieces can be in the graveyard (so you can block with Restoration Specialist, Ravenous Intruder or Reckless Fireweaver) when turn 4 or 5 comes and you try to combo. Too many pieces to do it consistently before turn 5 or 6 I guess...
I will playtest when the set comes out and try all the possibilities. Thank you again for your feedback!

I like your take on combo with Teshar, Ancestor’s Apostle. The only thing I am not sure is if you can survive long enough to perform your combo. Most of your cards are combo pieces that can be substituted for one another which is great, but none of them really give you much to defend yourself with which is my concern. Your deck also lacks any form of board or spell control, meaning you don't have any answers to what your opponent does.
You may want to cut Saheeli Rai from your deck as she does not offer much to your decks goal other then give you a slow scry mechanic.
You also may want to remove Pia's Revolution from the deck as this is only an infinite combo if you have your opponent to low to not pay 3 life or you have Restoration Specialist in play, in which case you already go infinite.
By removing those 2 cards you should have 5 cards that you can now use to help control the board by using spells like Settle the Wreckage or further your draw into your combo by adding more Champion of Wits or cards like Cathartic Reunion. You could even use cards like Servo Schematic to help out your early game because it also combos well with Ravenous Intruder. This will get you some early blockers and another artifact that you won't mind eating to help you block earlier in the game (or eat to survive a burn spell).
Best of luck with the deck.

Fatal Push can kill Gleaming Barrier but also does a lot more. But if it's just about killing your own artifacts, these are some other options:
- Makeshift Munitions
Also a side note: Inspiring Statuary would effectively let you use treasures for mana without sacrificing them (so you can save them until Marionette Master comes out).
