Murphy77 Thanks for the suggestions! I actually have noticed that the black explorers underperform. Deadeye Tracker is only there because I wanted a 1 drop but with Path of Discovery maybe I can add Llanowar Elves for ramp instead.

Playing explore in standard, I found that the black creatures with explore generally under perform. In the early game, you are not drawing enough cards to sac a card for the effect of Tomb Robber. Deadeye Tracker is fairly useless if your opponent has no cards in the grave. Lurking Chupacabra relies too much on you exploring at the right time.

If you can play Path of Discovery, it is less important that individual creatures have explore. Wayward Swordtooth is good for playing the extra lands that you end up with in your hand. Vine Mare gives you an extra creature with hexproof, then you can afford to play something like Blanchwood Armor or Forebear's Blade on your hexproof creatures. Wildgrowth Walker still grows into something with wild power, but you then have a range of powerful attacking creatures that could have hexproof, vigilance and trample.

Hey, interesting concept I like the interaction with Archer and Baron.

Consider adding a self mill strategy? It has potential because of Bone Dragon and Reassembling. A self mill strategy adds card that aren't Skeletons, but you said so yourself there's only four Skeletons in Standard which means you kind of want to branch out with other creatures. Consider 4x Stitcher's Supplier, 4x Seekers' Squire and 2x Deadeye Tracker? Graveyard Marshal is also good when putting creatures into the graveyard.

Why 28 lands? Seems like a lot and there's seven more lands in the sideboard? What's the reason for so many lands?

I'm afraid the cards previous exiled with Deadeye Tracker will not be available to be cast with the Metamorphed Rona, Disciple of Gix. Abilities like the ones Rona possesses are linked abilities and refer only to cards associated to other linked abilities, not others that may incidentally qualify.

With Rona, Disciple of Gix you are still casting the card. Cast triggers still trigger, and abilities that effect/decisions you make when casting still apply, so Delve still functions. Just be on the lookout for the wording "if you cast [this] from your hand" which would obviously not be the case when casting from exile.

Scrapheap Scrounger would not work because the ability says "from your graveyard to the battlefield" and it is in exile, not the graveyard.

I believe the other questions are answered with the "linked abilities" rule rendering them invalid.

Main Senario: I've had a Deadeye Tracker out for most of the game and have activated it a number of times. I also have a Rona, Disciple of Gix on board. I cast metamorphic alteration (a card in core set 2019 targeting Deadeye Tracker and choose to make it a copy of Rona. Can I then cast cards exiled with it from before it was enchanted.

How does this work with cast triggers such as Oblivion Sower, additional costs Gurmag Angler or coming out of the graveyard such as with Scrapheap Scrounger? What if they are exiled face down, e.g. Gonti, Lord of Luxury or Bomat Courier? How much bigger would the Deadeye Tracker be in the above situation if it became a copy of a Bishop of Binding? Could you use Admonition Angel to get all the cards exiled by Painbringer onto the battlefield?

If Vraska's Contempt is too expensive have you considered Hour of Glory? It's super budget friendly, hits most of what you're looking remove, and sits at the same mana cost as Contempt (but is actually less of a strain on the mana base). It also has the somewhat relevant upside of sniping any additional copies of a Hazoret the Fervent or The Scarab God your opponent may have sitting in hand.

For the creature base, Tomb Robber might be an interesting inclusion since it represents the potential for repeated explore triggers. It can be a bit slow so I wouldn't recommend more than two copies. Perhaps replacing Tishana's Wayfinder?

I'd also recommend a few copies of Deadeye Tracker to your sideboard. It represents some pretty decent graveyard hate while also supporting the Explore theme.

Interesting idea, but I think you can do better than Slippery Scoundrel. Maybe Wanted Scoundrels or dire fleet hoarder or Warkite Marauder or Hostage Taker or Deadeye Brawler or Deadeye Tracker.

Instead of Recover maybe Duress or Walk the Plank or Vanquish the Weak? Recover is really expensive and you need something to slow them down (or speed you up) while you're setting up your pieces. Maybe Sword-Point Diplomacy?

I think I'd go with Hostage Taker and Duress (with Walk the Plank and Vanquish the Weak in the sideboard).

Nice! I also toyed with a G/B version of this deck. How does the Deadeye Tracker play? It's great that he's a mainboard answer to The Scarab God, God-Pharoah's Gift, and Torrential Gearhulk. I ultimately focused my deck heavily on dig cards to assemble the Path of Discovery+Animation Module combo.

I would also consider Kitesail Freebooter, probably as a board card. A coincidental flying body is nice to pump with Path of Discovery and Rishkar, Peema Renegade. Then again, maybe the Duress makes more sense.

Also, since you're so creature heavy, consider Lifecrafter's Bestiary as a 1x.
