I think you ought to reevaluate your knowledge of modern and the presumptuous way you present your theories. Allow for the possibility of you being wrong. It would both save people's time arguing obvious points and improve your play which is, I hope, your goal here.

Ruin Raider is not competitively playable by any Stretch. And If you build around him you get good yank at best.
Also "kills goyf instead of Scavenger" just illustrates that the card isn't great. If your 2drop is more threatening than your 3drop something's wrong.
Look, if you believe the card is good, put it to the test. I'd be happy to be proven wrong.

I have close to never played nor watched a game with multiple bob Effects in play. You are creating unlikely scenarios to match your Argument.
If you think between Tracker, finks, courser, anafenza, lily1,lily2, Lingering souls and Scavenger the latter deserves to take a 3cmc Slot you're insane. Bgx lives off double powerplays on turn 4. Scavenger just doesnt have the impact it needs to have and is bloody easy to remove.
This is modern. A 3cmc spell has to be either hard to trade 1for1 (souls, finks) or potentially take over the game (Lily, anafenza, Tracker). That's a very high bar to meet

Scavenger has NO way to grow beyond a 4/3 which looses to almost everything in modern. There are much more powerful 3drops in modern. If you want the life, go for Kitchen Finks. If you want Aggression and powerful graveyard hate, go for Anafenza, the Foremost. Scavenger does nothing. The graveyard hate is close to nigligible, a 3drop that grows no more than a 4/3 and only in your attack step is nigligible, and gaining the life is only valuable against burn or Hyper aggressive stompy Decks. The card just isn't good. Deal with it.

Regarding the conversation, Scavenging Ooze is better by far. There should be no discussion about this. Scooze can outgrow anything in the long Game and is a strong anti-graveyard strategy while also fitting in gbx's curve turn 2 (1 Threat) AND turn 4 (2 threats].
Also having your scavenger bolted is a huge Tempo loss, and even terminate is a Tempo plus on him. Imo the question isn't "is he better than scooze" , but "is he playable qt all"?

I reluctantly throw salt in this conversations, but I've had a discussion with Xica before and found 2 things to be true: first, trying to convince him is like boxing a glacier, and second, his understanding of Tier Level modern is much more limited than his overconfidence would let on. Sorry, but I feel I have to clarify things here.
