Filigree Familiar Discussion

OvermindWaffle on R/G Energy

No problem! I'd probably make it a 4-of since it ruins a lot of good removal. Maybe removing a Filigree Familiar since it doesn't synergize too well with your energy endgame.

Have you considered swapping the Woodweaver's Puzzleknots for Prophetic Prisms? They help fix mana and don't require sacrificing to draw a card (or two). I have a similar Bant Panharmonicon deck and I've found Prisms to be very good. Rogue Refiner is also nuts, or if you're worried about color requirements, Filigree Familiar is another good cheap option. I can link my decklist if you'd like, otherwise its called Bantharmonicon. Cheers +1 :)

Finally a Solid Reanimator List on TappedOut! I love what you did with the black, as many cathartic Reanimator decks ran Refurbish and focused on the Gearhulks instead of the black Reanimator spells. I think the inclusion of Bloodrage Brawler as an early drop to discard creatures and get a blocker on the board is excellent. I also like Filigree Familiar. My only comment is about the lack of Boardwipes in the sideboard. Maybe 2-3 copies of Fumigate in the sideboard for the Zombie Tribal or hyper-aggressive matchups. While I do see that you went for a slightly more tempo oriented list using Bloodrage Brawler and Filigree Familiar to not fall behind, I feel like more is needed to help win the hyper-aggressive matchups.

It's actually fine. Just take out the lord cards and go put in some artifacts that will benefit you. Like Filigree Familiar in place of Metallic Mimic. The blue or black puzzleknot in place of Chief of the Foundry. You need four of your colossus so you can have 3-4 of them being fetched and playing them all for free.

Approach of the Second Sun gives you inevitability against your opponents and acts as a secondary win condition, one or two sounds really good for this deck.

Cathar's Companion dies very quickly imo because of response to the trigger and Filigree Familiar's pretty good from the life gain and card advantage. I suggest replacing a Blisterpod and Rhonas for two of them. 4 of Blisterpod isn't good unless you are ramping a lot and after the first Rhonas, drawing the second one's a dead draw until the first leaves.

Not sure i like Bontu the Glorified, Filigree Familiar or Cataclysmic Gearhulk in here but they each have their reasons.I'd look into Lightning Greaves, Whispersilk Cloak and Polluted Bonds.

Actually just look at this:

Happy i could help :)
Kitchen Finks is a great card and the perfect creature for your needs. Eternal Witness is just as fitting, but limiting yourself to 1-2 copies seems right, since drawing too many of them can be become awkward with nothing meaningful to return. It's just a 2/1, so its ability really has to deliver. Unfortunately, Eldritch Evolution exiles itself upon resolution. (However, there are matchups where it's quite powerful to have Eternal Witnesses returning eachother in a loop whenever one of them dies. But those matchups are too infrequent to justify more than 2 copies in my opinion.)
As for other 3-drop creatures to sacrifice, i am not really sure what the best options are for your colors. Troll Ascetic is a good card for sure, but usually you don't really want to sacrifice it. Wolfir Avenger and Yasova Dragonclaw i'm not a big fan of, both require quite a bit of mana, otherwise they aren't all that great. Carven Caryatid is good if you sacrifice it or not, but such a defensive creature unfortunately doesn't fit well into your strategy. Tuktuk the Explorer can be insane if you can make him die, otherwise it's a 3 mana Raging Goblin. Goblin Ruinblaster seems really good, but it usually requires 4 mana. Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Borderland Ranger or Filigree Familiar might be okay, with the Familiar being the best of the three in my opinion.
As for 5-drops, i like the dragons and Thragtusk a lot, Blitz Hellion i don't have any experience with so i can't judge it, but Urabrask the Hidden isn't quite on the same level as the others i believe. An interactive card like Acidic Slime might be better, since that solves problems the other cards can't handle (like Ensnaring Bridge or Oblivion Stone). A total of 8 five mana creatures seems okay, but i would rather go down than up in number.
Maybe you could fit a Kessig Wolf Run into your mana base, it's quite a nice mana sink. 22-23 lands total seems right though.
I think i would sideboard Forked Bolt to beat aggressive decks, Ancient Grudge against Affinity etc, Magus of the Moon to punish greedy mana bases, and Burning-Tree Shaman to shut down some combo decks.
1-2 Reclamation Sage and the Thragtusk can definitely stay in the sideboard, and Loaming Shaman and Guttural Response can be good tools as well, the other cards i don't think you really need.
