Following the Mystic combo, I thought a bit more of what could profit much from machination mindset?

I found out that Ironclad Reaver, when he is relentless and attacks every turn, then he could trigger his pillage almost every turn.

I wonder if it is sensible to make a deck based on this? Eye of eagle and Somata shift for getting Reaver, add Verdant Veil for warding, Sand Pact Memorial for getting the Ironclad Reaver faster, and some other enchantments, mostly for buffing his attack. Bloodboil could be ok, but it would trigger once or twice, as Ironclad Reaver could become damage-invincible rather fast.

However, while this combo could be rather fun, it seems rather slow and would need some spells/structures for stalling the early game.

YOu don't need reavers invulnerablity if you can just draw potion of resistance and verdant veil with mystic.

While PoR and Mystic, I guess, would be a must for such deck, the PoR is not exactly the same as the immunity to damage the Reaver have. This immunity would make it so you won't need to heal him at all, and as Death Cap Berserk won't damage him, he would just attack each turn. And if he would manage to damage idol each turn (using Machinated if possible), he would maintain this invincibility. PoE, although, would help him if opponent would make him not to attack idol via chump block or countdown increasing. But, in my opinion, the less there are critical scrolls for a combo, the better.

Hm you might be on to something. But without mystic it might be hard to get what you need. And once you need to include mystic, the question is, why not go full mystic instead. The mystic will be key to get your reaver's enchantments, so you need to him, the reaver and protection for both.

I try something similar a while ago and i m sorry to desapoing you, but reaver is inmune until the start of your turn, the inmunity falls off before death cap ticks.
Hence, the reaver take damage every turn.
