Scrapheap Scrounger can't block, but that isn't its job.

It can SOLO Crew Heart of Kiran and keeps coming back as a Crew member.

It's not for every deck, but keep it in mind if you are in need of more Crew.

I think you need to consider some early Creatures. Otherwise you will be dead, before your Planeswalkers can hit the field.

There are some excellent Artifact Creatures like Scrapheap Scrounger and Foundry Inspector that can Crew Heart of Kiran and also help in other ways.

Ten Planeswalkers are a lot for any deck, unless it is Superfriends.

I would get rid of Tezzeret the Schemer as he is GREAT for ramp, but this deck doesn't seem to be in desperate need of that.

In his place I would think about Ensoul Artifact

I know it's a cliché, but it's just that good. Especially on your Darksteel Citadel

Swapping a Swamp for Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth would also be a good idea.

I always throw one Arch of Orazca into my Pioneer decks. It can really help in the late game. Note that lands are also permanents. I'd take out an Island for that.

Finally, Mutavault can get you out of trouble, particularly if you need extra Crew, or to protect a Planeswalker.

Hope that helps.

Omniscience_is_life thanks for all the nice things you said.

Eager Construct is a very undervalued card. It became less useful when we learned how to get the most out of Scrapheap Scrounger. The only thing it has over that is the ability to block.

I'm glad the Token idea was of some help.

My monored list needs a four-of two-drop, and i am wondering whether or not to splash black for Scrapheap Scrounger or stick with Viashino Pyromancer or Robber of the Rich. Any thoughts?

This is an interesting idea and I love how aggressive it can be! I do have a few suggestions:

I think Feasting Troll King is just not good enough. It's not aggressive, so it doesn't match with your Phylactery Lich or Herald of Anguish starts, and it also doesn't give you long-term value like Tireless Tracker or Karn. It's just kind of a big dude.

I feel strongly that, instead, Herald of Anguish is a great end-game beater since it comes with card "advantage" and other good effects, and can come down much earlier than the King or can be part of a double-spell turn 4 or 5.

I'd suggest cutting the Troll Kings and just running four Herald. That would make you an aggressive midrange deck with the ability to be flexible and remove early threats, more like modern Rock.

If you do so, I think you'll want more early artifact plays. You're especially lacking two-drops. I'd suggest cutting Weirding Wood - now, you'll be ramping with artifacts instead - and adding Scrapheap Scrounger or Stonecoil Serpent.

Finally, I'm not sure about Gods Willing and Anguished Unmaking. Pioneer is really aggressive; around 30% of the meta is RDW and White Weenies, and another big chunk is the Inverter combo. Neither of those cards are good in those matchups. I'd strongly recommend running mainboard Thoughtseize or, if you can't afford those, Duress. For the other two slots, I'd recommend a painless removal spell, like Fatal Push.

For the sideboard, I think you'll want some anti-ETB cards for Inverter and Gyruda decks, like Tocatli Honor Guard, and also some early sweepers for the aggro decks, like Cry of the Carnarium.

I hope this helps and good luck!!

I like the addition of Scrapheap Scrounger. And I've played enough MTG Arena to know cards like Thoughtseize really come in handy. I don't play enough paper magic anymore to give a good opinion on Cry of the Carnarium, but your explanation sounds good. I wanted to mention a small thing about instant removal and particularly instant removal that can target one of your creatures. If you need Delirium you can always target your own creature to help get it. And if the situation presents itself an opponent might not see that coming when attacking. Picture it, you Murder your own Deathcap Cultivator and suddenly their creatures are facing a 3/3 Gnarlwood Dryad and a 4/4 Grim Flayer. Just a thought.

Magic_Aids I love your videos!

I tried out Fiend Artisan in a Pioneer Golgari Mill deck, and it smacked face. In the times it didn't die before my next turn, I would use the Fiend Artisan's ability to sacrifice a Scrapheap Scrounger (because I can recur it) or a Stitcher's Supplier for extra jucy synergy to get either another Stitcher's Supplier or something threatening. (I will put the decklist onto TappedOut sometime soon.) It drew out removal so my bigger threats could get through, and for those who had no removal, they had a bad day.

I would love to see you try out a Sram's Cheerios deck as it's my favorite deck to bring to tournaments. (And I like winning with it.)

Keep those videos coming!

Gingerbrute might be a good addition here. If you have no creatures to recur Scrapheap Scrounger with, it kind of nullifies its greatest strength. I'd also consider Mask of Immolation. Granted, I play that card in a deck that is more equipment heavy, but it can still give you extra points of damage. It also makes a good target for Shrapnel Blast once you have used it. If you know your meta or the decks you are playing against Phyrexian Revoker could be a good two drop.
