Creature — Cat Beast

When Felidar Guardian enters the battlefield, you may exile another target permanent you control, then return that card to the battlefield under its owner's control.

Swell deck. As for recommendations, Venser, the Sojourner has synergy with your commander, creates massive shenanigans with Gilded Drake, and allows us to reuse Snapcaster Mage and Spellseeker in the absence of taiga. If we include it we should consider Restoration Angel or Felidar Guardian for added utility. If we include both, we might add Altar of the Brood for an infinite mill combo. :)))

Sure thing Prospekt. Yeah the order doesn't matter, you could even play Yannik last. Restoration Angel, Felidar Guardian, and Wispweaver Angel are a little confusing because they return the "Yannik" that they exiled immediately. This still works for the loop, it just reverses the order of who's exiling who.

For example, if Yannik exiled a Faceless Butcher and then you play Felidar Guardian targeting Yannik, Yannik's trigger to return Butcher will hit the stack, then his trigger to exile something (Guardian will be the target) will go to the stack on top upon fully resolving Guardian's effect. Guardian gets exiled, Butcher returns and targets Yannik, returning Guardian who then targets Butcher, and so on. Basically, every time Guardian arrives the loop order is reversed.

Glad I could help!

Untap two target permanents.

This would often be an infinite combo with it. as long as you have an Izzet Boilerworks, Worn Powerstone, Sol Ring, etc. then you can untap two permanents twice for a total of five mana and untap the Guildmage. This would need Grim Monolith, Basalt Monolith, or Mana Vaultto you yeild infinite mana, though.

It's like the Aminatou, the Fateshifter & Felidar Guardian combo.

I'd like to see a Clone of some kind.

Gotta respect having a versatile sweeper always at the ready! I see in your description that you are moving away from cards like cloudshift but have you considered something like Felidar Guardian? While it is not instant speed, it can be a way to flicker your ETBs while also being a way to reset Kaya in a pinch.

I liked abusing it with Felidar Guardian and Saheeli Rai. I could copy/flicker it with either half to draw more into the other half of the combo. It was janky but sweet!

Aside from Protean Hulk, you might want to consider the Boonweaver Combo (Boonweaver Giant + Pattern of Rebirth):

If you have either piece (and, in the Pattern's case, a disposable creature that you can enchant with it) and any sac outlet, you can fetch the remaining piece and go off:

  1. sac Boonweaver Giant enchanted with Pattern of Rebirth to get Karmic Guide, reanimate the Giant with the ETB trigger and enchant it with the Pattern again;

  2. sac the Giant again to get Felidar Guardian, flicker the Guide, reanimate the Giant again;

  3. sac the Giant one last time to get Reveillark.

Now that you have Guide, Felidar and Lark on the battlefield, you can sac them (make sure Lark is the last one to go) to get them all back and flicker Guide to get the Giant back. Now the sky is the limit and you can cheat every single creature from your library and/or graveyard into the battlefield and loop their ETB/death triggers to your heart's content: Acidic Slime to get rid of all of your opponents artifacts, enchantments and lands, Perilous Myr for infinite damage, and so on.

This combo can also be done with Protean Hulk, naturally. I like it because tutoring for or drawing into Blasting Station and Altar of Dementia is surprisingly hard in a Selesnya deck, so it's nice to be able to win with your other sac outlets.

I also like Gift of Immortality. It turns both Sun Titan and Boonweaver Giant into infinite sacrifice fodder and, like Saffi, gets extra value from your creatures' triggers when you're not going off.

I would personally run Nethroi, Apex of Death. Nethroi has lifelink which can be fun to pump up with auras, but Nethroi's reanimate ability can be seriously powerful at enchantment reanimation if you build your deck right.

Auramancer, Griffin Dreamfinder, Monk Idealist, Restoration Specialist, Trusty Retriever, Acolyte of Affliction, Golgari Findbroker, Lurrus of the Dream-Den, Eternal Witness, Felidar Guardian. These make excellent targets to recur enchantments and auras with as you could recur 4 to 5 enchantments every time Nethroi mutates.

Do keep in mind a few card draw enchantment creatures also have 0 power making them free to reanimate too. Creatures like: Argothian Enchantress, Mesa Enchantress, Verduran Enchantress, Kor Spiritdancer.

Since you're in black it should also be easy to recur creatures with cheap mutate costs such as: Vulpikeet, Migratory Greathorn, Insatiable Hemophage, Huntmaster Liger and Gemrazer.

So if you get creative with the deck building Nethroi, Apex of Death can practically be a Crystal Chimes on a stick.

Also if you run out of enchantments to recur I'd recommend running these enchantments as they're easy to both put into the graveyard and obtain value off of them which is what will make this strategy even stronger: Sinister Concoction, Seal of Primordium, Seal of Cleansing, Soul Snare, Weight of Conscience, Aura of Silence, Font of Fertility, Sterling Grove and Unbridled Growth. Sigil of the Nayan Gods and Cast Out also work if you only intend to cycle them.

Legacy can abuse it with Conspicuous Snoop now, fetching it and a Goblin Matron is an easy win.

Setting up other combos was way easier than before, with a strong 2-drop untapper in Corridor Monitor and a strong 4 drop in Felidar Guardian. Both go well with Kiki and Pod now!
