Wurmlover on Good Decks Don't Need Rares

you could possibly afford to go rakes to put in Ravenous Intruder. It doubles your clock by letting you sac your artifacts for the same effect.

I'm not fond of Molten Psyche, the deck doesn't really need to cycle hands, it's not quite what the deck does.

@Lanngan

Cheers pal! I think Disciple of the Vault is a potential option if you go into Rakdos colours, but I think this deck is much more efficient when it is mono-red. Reckless Fireweaver was initially in the sideboard, and while it makes the combo even more deadly when it is on the board, it doesn't quite work for the deck's curve.

I thought about affinity for artifacts cards too, but more often than not you don't have many artifacts on the board, so wouldn't always get the affinity value - hence why I use Slag Fiend instead as a late game body when all the artifacts are in the graveyard after processed by Ravenous Intruder.

I'd be interested to see what you make though - there are some decent Aether Revolt cards that support a Black-Red version of the deck, maybe you could introduce the Improvise mechanic into the deck too. Let me know when your version is done, I'm intrigued!

I liked the deck i tried to build one like this some years ago before quitting magic for some time, now im coming back to the game and really want to finish the one I started...what do you think about Disciple of the Vault you could punish the opponent when you sacrifice for Atog or Ravenous Intruder and punish then with Reckless Fireweaver and Pia's Revolution...you could think about adding some artifact lands in it, to dig in for cards you could have Ichor Wellspring, Terrarion......you can add Frogmite in the deck too and Myr Enforcer you will have a lot of artifacts to play them...to dig for mana you can add Mycosynth Wellspring....these are just ideas for you to think but for me Ill finish what I started and then post here to have the feedback from you guys to make my sideboard because I dont even know Eldrazi existed until last week XD

The reason Slag Fiend is in the deck is since the deck naturally puts a lot of artifacts into the graveyard. It's an incredible bomb late game, for one mana it puts value into all those artifacts that you've used to pump up Ravenous Intruder or Atog earlier.

Maybe I'll go down a couple mind, but I wouldn't build around it in the deck. The deck focusses on pumping Atog and flinging, but if Atog is removed and there's a load of artifacts in the graveyard, a surprise Slag Fiend surely helps?

Thanks for the suggestions, but this deck puts enough artifacts in the graveyard already. The interaction between low cost artifacts, Atog and Pia's Revolution already encourages opponents to take damage and put artifacts in the graveyard, and Slag Fiend just takes up this opportunity as a late game bomb, for only 1 mana!

You are getting me thinking though, and I value that loads, thanks!

Once again, I agree, but say both Atog and Ravenous Intruder get hit by a Lost Legacy or a card like it - then I have little chance of winning.

I'm not denying the deck isn't aggressive, and that Atog and Ravenous Intruder aren't the main plan, but Slag Fiend, much like Chimeric Mass, add flexibility to the deck if it does go heads up.

I think this flexibility is really useful, but perhaps my opinion outweighs the potential of the deck? Maybe that's a conversation for another day!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if you have 2x Workshop Assistant (one in the graveyard eventually and one on the battlefield) with Ravenous Intruder, can you sac and re-cast?

I appreciate that, although I really like the surprise of Slag Fiend. Pia's Revolution will be a target, and whilst I agree that adding more 0-cost artifacts would add to the aggressive nature of the deck, I think having somewhat of an alternative win-con, rather than just going flat-out Atog does help with the deck's flexibility.

Similarly, if I can't get a Revolution on the field, I have no way to get the artifacts back from the graveyard. Slag Fiend provides an interesting opportunity to utilise artifacts that Atog and Ravenous Intruder have already used to pump up the 1 mana monster.

The Foundry Inspector also help reduce the cost of Bomat Courier and Implement of Combustion, helping card draw which otherwise the deck lacks in. Reducing the cost also helps to loot them with an Atog and Pia's Revolution in play, for example.

Perhaps I could go down the amount of copies of the Fiend in place of Faithless Looting, as you've suggested?

I'm really enjoying the conversation and suggestions, you guys are awesome! Feel free to +1 if you like too :)

I've been playing a similar deck and I must second TheGreatLiar's opinion on Metallic Mimic. In a similar build I found the mimic to be just about the best card in the deck for one reason: free casting Walking Ballistas. The synergy you get with this pair and Pia's Revolution can get a bit ridiculous. I also scrapped the Scrounger for a few reasons: this build is really defenseless early rather than being aggressive and the Scrounger works against you there, plus with Scrap Trawler and revolution you don't really want to be exiling your own creatures if possible. Also the way you have this set up the Trawler doesn't have much to work with since Scrounger brings himself back (and really isnt very good as a 2 cmc if you don't), and Ravenous Intruder has to sacrifice some serious mana worth of creatures to have much effect. You have several almost- ideas going here, seems like you'd do better to pick one and go with it.

Feel free to check mine out, though it needs some work as well: Courier of DOOM
