Sunbird's Invocation

Enchantment

Whenever you cast a spell from your hand, reveal the top X cards of your library, where X is that spell's converted mana cost. You may cast a card revealed this way with converted mana cost X or less without paying its mana cost. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.

Head scratchers: Combustible Gearhulk , Fate Unraveler , and the discard effect cards. These two creatures don't really seem to offer you much, and don't really seem to fit the theme of your deck. Instead of the Gearhulk, I'd run more reliable card draw, like Greed , Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip, Book of Rass , Necropotence , and maybe even some red wheel effects, like Wheel of Fortune if you can or Magus of the Wheel on the cheap (there are several others, too). I also recommend Sunbird's Invocation , especially with the high curve you have.

I honestly don't think cards like Duress and Inquisition of Kozilek are going to be that impactful for you. I'd consider running options like Meteor Golem , Spine of Ish Sah , and Unstable Obelisk to get rid of enchantments.

Hope this helps!

War Cadence is a card that can help you punch damage through, and Goblin War Drums can provide a similarly annoying effect.

You may benefit from more ramp and card draw. Endless Atlas doesn't seem too good. Rishkar's Expertise , Greed , Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip, or even Fecundity would be better in its place (I would probably run all these in a list myself). I'd probably cut Dreamstone Hedron for a cheaper rock, and since you're running Jund, I'd probably run each of the according Signets for fixing/ramp.

With all your high CMC creatures, you could gain help from Elvish Piper and Quicksilver Amulet , and another helpful card for you might be Sunbird's Invocation . I find it to be a very good card in any deck I run it.

Hope these suggestions help!

If you're combat focused, War Cadence can help push damage through. I think you need some more card draw, too. Get Rhystic Study out of the maybe board and into the main board. It's just too good. Do you find Trade Routes works well for you? Do you end up holding a lot of lands in hand? If not, Rhystic Study fits much better. Green also has good card draw options in Harmonize , Rishkar's Expertise , Shamanic Revelation , and Collective Unconscious . Although not exactly a "Cascade" card, I've found Sunbird's Invocation to be a quite useful card, and run it in a lot of decks that run red, and I think its effect is on theme for your deck here.

I love to see interesting builds like this. Keep up the good work!

Sunbird's Invocation is a great way to cheat in dinos as it gives you a pseudo cascade effect akin to Gishath, Sun's Avatar . Kindred Summons is a decent way to cheat in Dinos as well, though it is much more effective the more dinos you already have on the board.

For card draw Lifecrafter's Bestiary is a great add in creature-heavy decks. Rishkar's Expertise provides nice card draw as well as helps you cheat in some creatures.

Pyrohemia is probably the single best and most consistent way to trigger your Enrage mechanics, as you can do it whenever you want as long as you have a red mana up.

You may play around Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis 's ability. Tatyova, Benthic Druid will give you extra card draw whenever you get a land on the field. Reliquary Tower is cheap now, and works wonders. You surely will have 5 lands on turn 4, so Temple of the False God is really good.

You should also consider Azorius Chancery , Boros Garrison , Gruul Turf , Selesnya Sanctuary , Simic Growth Chamber , Izzet Boilerworks . You play your untapped land for the turn normally, then play one of those with K&T's ability. You get ahead of mana since these lands tap for 2 mana.

Krosan Verge , Myriad Landscape and Blighted Woodland are good for ramping when you have nothing else to do.

I suggest removing Azorius Guildgate , Blossoming Sands , Boros Guildgate , Gruul Guildgate , Izzet Guildgate , Simic Guildgate , Tranquil Cove , Vivid Grove , Haunted Fengraf and Unstable Frontier for the lands above.

Do you want to see chaos happen? Hive Mind , Knowledge Pool , Thousand-Year Storm , Eye of the Storm , Shared Fate , Gate to the AEther , Possibility Storm , Ruhan of the Fomori , Perplexing Chimera , Dictate of the Twin Gods , Furnace of Rath , Gratuitous Violence , Mind's Dilation , Sunbird's Invocation .

Do you want to make people interact more with you? Fact or Fiction , Steam Augury , Avatar of Slaughter , Goblin Spymaster , the Tempt with Vengeance cycle.

Do you want to give more resources to them? Eladamri's Vineyard , Dictate of Karametra , Zhur-Taa Ancient , Heartbeat of Spring , Heartwood Storyteller , Intellectual Offering , Keeper of Progenitus , Well of Ideas , Rites of Flourishing , Ghirapur Orrery . Zendikar Resurgent and Mirari's Wake .

Well BS-T, that feels very Sunbird's Invocation / Cream of the Crop . I don’t like the idea of having a mechanic that functions like other cards.

GhostChieftain that seems pretty good, actually. I might go with that.
