Bone Picker Discussion

I have more Sin Prodders and Wolves of Devil's Breach if you want to trade for them. Also, I'd add more stuff that gives you benefits when they die. Stuff like Festering Mummy. I'd cut Falkenrath Gorger, Cursed Minotaur, Emberhorn Minotaur, Manticore of the Gauntlet, Nef-Crop Entangler, Scarab Feast, Nest of Scarabs, Fortuitous Find, edifice of authority, and Oracle's Vault to start doubling up on your other cards and putting in some cards that synergies more w/ sacing and discarding. Cards like Dread Wanderer, Bone Picker, bloodrage brawler, Flameblade Adept, wander in death, Miasmic Mummy, Fling. Those are only from Amonkhet. You've got all the madness cards from SOI block and I'm sure there's more from other sets in standard. Happy brewing!

I really like the deck! I think Harsh Scrutiny will be a really important card in the new standard. I know your trying to keep this decks mana curve low to the ground but i'm having trouble not seeing Glyph Keeper or Cryptic Serpent as at least a 1 of in a deck like this. Not to mention they're out of fatal push range. While I like Bone Picker alot it forces your removal on your turn. What do you think about putting 1 or 2 Drake Haven in the sideboard for those uncounterable creature matchups (looking at you Prowling Serpopard). Interesting deck. I intend to play around with it. Really reminds me of Jeskai from Khans block. Could be fast hard hitting deck or a slow controlling deck.

Just so you know, Bone Picker seems a little hard to cast in your deck. Magma Spray and Incendiary Flow will not trigger the cost reduction because they exile, so an early bone picker can really only be triggered by Fatal Push, Lightning Axe and Shock which is surprisingly hard vs anything other than Vehicles. It can still be done consistently, but just consider switching your burn numbers around to ensure you can drop the picker early.

Sorry, double-comment.

Wanted to highlight that Bone Picker was the best creature you can have in your deck.Bye.

You should never put something legendary in x4 (unless it has a crazy effect when coming or leaving board) so you should remove at least 1 hapatra.

You are using channeler initiate and blisterpod which are supposed to ramp but your curve is very low, you should add some high curve creatures. I suggest Honored Hydra since its recursive so you can also use it as sacrifice material.

And i also suggest it cause it has natural trample, which lead us to the point that red isnt relevant in the kind of deck you are trying to do (and you don't need trample when you have menace).

Making the deck b/g instead of b/r/g will leave some space to more fatal push or Ruinous Path and x4 Bone Picker

There is also a 3ccm bg eldrazi uncommon from bfz which could be good. Or the Zulaport Cutthroat. But they may not really fit with what you're trying to do since they work better in a sacrifice only deck while your is more of a midrange goodstuff.

Hope it will help you.Gl hf.

im not gonna name the ones already said. other than those, im thinking rhonas in green stompy. sweltering suns might see play in skred because it can be cycled so its not a terrible topdeck lategame. Prowling Serpopard may see some play in the sb. of course there are all the new 1 mana cycle cards for living end. soul scar mage is gonna see some play, and if it doesnt, ill make it. it makes pyroclasm incredible, and can kill everything. Also, it doesnt let finks come back. Regal Caracal could see play because its super value. Also, it has synergy with brimaz and pridemage, so maybe in hatebears. leonin arbiter too as well as fleecemane lion. i like it a lot. Devoted Crop-Mate could be good in aristocrats. Especially junk. Bringing back all ur stuff, especially voice. I like Bone Picker too, sakura tribe elder, and all sorts of stuff like that. Aristocrats could get better, maybe even like top 15.Censor is also good in delver and tempo decks, it is a soft counter that can turn cantrip. Nest of Scarabs could be great in some brew. Stinging shot and stuff. never, mouth and heaven are also good. hapatra, khenra charioteer, and samut too.

@maskedgrenadier Thanks for the comment! As for it:

I wouldn't say Bone Picker is a better Delver of Secrets  Flip.

Bone Picker is best in a creature heavy build, such as Aristocrats, if you are familiar, or when creatures are consistently dying. This deck is neither. Keep in mind, Path to Exile doesn't work with it either, and counterspells don't work the same. In addition, I prefer to keep up my mana, and don't want to limit my kill spells to sorcery speed.

Delver of Secrets  Flip will always cost 1 mana, rewards me for using lots of spells (which I view as an okay thing), and is much better fit for this deck.

These styles of decks want to cast a creature, then cast the rest of my cards, whereas Bone Picker is the opposite.

Final bit, Delver decks are supposed to be very mana efficient, and a 4 mana sorcery speed card that doesn't impact the board is not worth it.

Thanks for the suggestion though!
