Beseech the Queen Discussion
1 week ago
Happy to help you out AinsleyTheGod, so here are some ideas for you:
Both of the previous commenters have some good ideas, but before you start grabbing upgrades suggested, you probably want to answer the question of how competitive you are looking to be? If you're wanting a fun home-brew in a casual meta, then there really aren't any wrong answers. Playing cards that you find fun and entertaining is all good in that case, so adjust the deck to your personal preference/flavor. On the other hand, if you are specifically looking to become more competitive against all comers, then job number one needs to be to reduce your CMC curve significantly while increasing your turn speed to get Sheoldred into play ASAP.
Considering your commander's strengths are forced sacrifice and reanimation, your best bet is to build primarily around that synergy. To that end, there are a ton of creatures lower on the mana curve that will provide an upgrade in synergy as well. I would suggest the following that you don't currently have included in your deck: Viscera Seer, Zulaport Cutthroat, Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, Stinkweed Imp, Ophiomancer, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Su-Chi, Phyrexian Delver, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Rune-Scarred Demon and Razaketh, the Foulblooded. Each has their own way in which they improve the overall synergy, with the higher CMC options providing significant benefits or board presence, which will almost always require your opponents to deal with them immediately, clearing an easier path for your commander as well.
In addition to creatures, you'll want to increase the number of cards that will fill your graveyard with select creatures, as well as increase the number of ways to reanimate them, and even sacrifice them, typically for your benefit, but also to your opponent's detriment. The following would be my initial suggestions based on those criteria: Entomb, Innocent Blood, Reanimate, Animate Dead, Exhume, Vampiric Rites, Buried Alive, Necromancy, Ashnod's Altar, Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos. There are numerous other options to fill these criteria as well, but sticking with the lowest CMC options, these are among the best.
Also, black has great options for ramp, tutors and card draw, so accelerating the deck and finding what you need shouldn't be an issue. Among the best low CMC options for these purposes include: Dark Ritual, Bubbling Muck, Vampiric Tutor, Sensei's Divining Top, Expedition Map, Demonic Tutor, Cabal Ritual, Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, Beseech the Queen, Phyrexian Arena, Necropotence and Diabolic Tutor.
Hopefully you find these suggestions helpful - obviously some of these options aren't necessarily budget friendly, but as you accumulate more of them, focusing on the most affordable first if necessary, the end result will be a significant improvement in consistency and performance from your deck. Best of luck with your deck brewing, and have fun with it.

I'm not 100% certain of all their prices, but transmute cards can serve as good dual-purpose tutors. The drawback is they tutor for specific CMCs. I ran two in my Zur stax/control deck until I broke down and bought the actual tutors. Muddle the Mixture and Perplex are counterspells as well as 2 and 3 mana tutors, respectively. At the very least, Muddle the Mixture can tutor for Demonic Tutor to get Doomsday, or just get it with Perplex. Beseech the Queen is another one, but it cost 4 mana at sorcery speed, which doesn't amount to much more than Diabolic Tutor. I also run Isochron Scepter in my deck to imprint Cyclonic Rift, Swan Song, and Mana Drain for added control, as well as every tutor in the deck. However, your deck is meant to be hyper competitive, so you may not have a need for it.

Hi! Neat idea! I really like it! +1!
I've got some good ideas for ya:
Zur the Enchanter will tutor for Arcane Adaptation. You could probably make him the commander for a guaranteed shot at Adaptation every game. I suggest you do that.
Here's my suggestion for an add on to the combo: Intruder Alarm. Now your combo is Near-infinite. IIIIIIIIF you make the Turbine a creature so it untaps when you grab a creature. This can be done with Ensoul Artifact(can be grabbed by Zur!), March of the Machines, Sydri, Galvanic Genius, Karn, Silver Golem, Toymaker, Tezzeret the Seeker (useful otherwise too), Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas, Karn's Touch, Xenic Poltergeist... you get the point. All the creatures would be Adapted Myr so they still help with the game plan. This side combo will make your main combo more powerful, allowing you to get all or your creatures rather than just one. Also you will additionally get infinite mana if you have a free mana-dork out. Something to consider.
Now regardless if you go with the side combo, you'll need a robust tutor package for consistency. Zur and a few others I've mentioned help, but here's some more: Enlightened Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, Razaketh's Rite, Demonic Collusion, Drift of Phantasms, Dimir Machinations, Mastermind's Acquisition, Brainspoil, Fabricate, and Beseech the Queen are all solid options.
Hope some of this helps! Let me know if you like or can't figure out the combo!

You could try adding in Vampiric Tutor or Beseech the Queen just to help find the cards you need. I think this is a very fun and interesting deck I love your infinite combo and think that it would be amazing to watch this go off as your opponent just looks on in utter dismay.

Some of those might not be Modern legal. Also, maybe put in something like Phylactery Lich and Lightning Greaves. That would be tough to deal with. Maybe some tutors like Diabolic Tutor or Beseech the Queen would help get your combo.
