Creature — Giant Monk
When Boonweaver Giant enters the battlefield, you may search your graveyard, hand, and/or library for an Aura card and put it onto the battlefield attached to Boonweaver Giant. If you search your library this way, shuffle it.

- Does the "beginning of the next end step" mean another player's end step if it is already your end step?
- Can an aura enter the battlefield attached to a creature with Spectra Ward on it?
- Skybind+boonweaver giant interaction.
- Mirror Entity and Boonweaver Giant
- Boonweaver Giant tutors an aura. When the aura enters it triggers Skybind. What happens if you have Greater Auramancy ?

You should still be able to combo off using the same cards but with one added search from Boonweaver Giant. If you shoot Karmic Guide to itself then you can use the new Boonweaver to get Reveillark. That in turn shoots itself to trigger LTB effect and get back Karmic Guide, this time shoot opponent for 2 damage. Get back Boonweaver. shoot itself, get Saffi Eriksdotter Use saffi to shoot karmic guide, in response before damage is dealt sac Saffi targeting Karmic Guide. Karmic dies to saffi damage and Rarmic returns to delayed Saffi trigger. target Karmic Guide for damage to itself and target Reveillark with Karmic ETB trigger. Let karmic die first, this is important. Reveillark enter shoots itself. LTB target Karmic Guide and Saffi. Use Karmic Guide to target opponent and Saffi to target Karmic Guide for damage. In response sac Saffi targeting Karmic Guide. Start loop from Karmic returns to delayed Saffi trigger.
This will cause a loop that deals 2 damage to any target every time the loop resolves. Hope this helps albeit very late. I found this Q&A while asking my own question. I'm also a very proficient combo player of the Karmic / Reveillark lines.

They are bound to keep printing more unintentionally because they won't test against every single other card. And for me, that is great. New fun combos make for new deckbuilding on my end. I played a single deck for a year that had the single plan of comboing off via Protean Hulk or Boonweaver Giant and had great fun. I played against other decks with similar or faster wins and I love it. If you beat me turn 2, shuffle that bad boy back up and we can start another with no changes.

With regards to sac outlets, I actually made the decision a while ago to cut the number of outlets down in my list, in place of more card advantage and honestly I can say that I have found it to be better. There are 4 main sac outlets that I focus on, Blasting Station, Altar of Dementia, Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar. I also sport Starved Rusalka and Greater Good (which is insane btw with the release of Renegade Rallier), however that's really all the repeatable outlets I run.
The reasoning I found was that while you can run a bunch of sac outlets, ultimately you can create lots of combinations that don't do anything. For example, Saffi Eriksdotter + Karmic Guide + Fanatical Devotion, while being an infinite combo, doesn't actually achieve anything for the deck. And while you can add Soul of the Harvest for card draw, you now need 4 cards to generate value and even still can potentially not have the mana required to do anything as a follow up.
I appreciate that adding the Boonweaver Giant combo into the deck kind of skews the number of sacrifice outlets you want to run in the deck. That being said, generally if you're going to run the boonweaver combo then that should be the central focus of the deck, with the rest of the list leaning into supporting the combo. So cards like Idyllic Tutor are going to make the deck a lost stronger as you want more options to get a sac outlet and then get either boonwevaer or pattern down and then go from there. For me personally, I elected not to try and integrate this as a combo since I felt that it was strongest with the addition of black for the creature based support that is offered there. But again, I still think the general premise of "less situational sac outlets, more tutors/draw" will ultiamtely be beneficial for the deck.
As for the swaps you've suggested, I think that they seem decent, I personally would have gone for more draw over Caregiver but at the end of the day you need to build a list that's comfortable for your playstyle.

I think Siona has real potential because of Faith. Any time you can have an infinite combo that only requires one card with your General then that's strong and can be a contender.
I didn't mention Concordant Crossroads because I thought this was a budget deck? If you can afford/acquire Crossroads definitely add it. Boonweaver Giant is another one card to combo with Siona by tutoring for and attaching Faith to itself. The advantage of Boonweaver is it can reanimate Faith if it's in your graveyard. Land Auras can help to make seven mana for Boonweaver. Eladamri's Call is an excellent budget instant creature tutor to get Boonweaver or an enchantress, etc.

Depending on the creature you're planning to find with your Pattern of Rebirth , there are probably better ways put it on the battlefield.

I saw you look to cheat in Pattern of Rebirth with Boonweaver Giant . What do you think about Defense of the Heart for help with getting combo out as well? It could also help slow down other decks from keeping opponents off of creatures.

In that case, you still have access to Tilonalli's Skinshifter , so I would run that one, at least. Flamerush Rider triggers your commander, even if you're stuck on 4 lands, and Kindred Charge could be pretty devastating if you can consistently get 3-5 bodies out. As for the 5-drop problem, it might seem counterintuitive, but I see no reason not to just play a 4-drop that's better. They won't trigger your commander, but they do count for Thundercloud Shaman, Sunrise Sovereign, etc. I would run Two-Headed Giant and Irregular Cohort before Kuldotha Ringleader, and Desolation Giant, although that's exactly not a 5-drop. Lower down the curve, Mirror of the Forebears is solid, and Bonecrusher Giant is great. Both can be grabbed with Sun Titan, too. If you want to keep your curve high to synergize with your commander, Boonweaver Giant with Eldrazi Conscription , Borderland Behemoth , and Realm-Cloaked Giant are all on my list. Also, since you're running Boros Charm and Sunforger, as well as sac-outlets like Brion Stoutarm, Bearer of the Heavens is a pretty definitive finisher.
