Gather the Pack Discussion

Chart a Course is good! Didn't know about this one.Yes, if you're afraid (like me) of losing some cards that can't go back to the battlefield (such as Ghoultree), then Gather the Pack or Grisly Salvage should help.

@Xica - Thanks for the suggestion, I believe Gather the Pack is stronger as it gives the extra card to the graveyard, and stacked with the rest of the graveyard effects there's a decent chance of the spell mastery triggering, but I'll keep in it mind with my testing coming up.

I am thinking about building a similar deck myself.
In my opion Blue is a better third color for the deck than Black (which doesn't offer much besides Grisly Salvage) as you get cards like:
Forbidden Alchemy, Strategic Planning, the flashback mode of Tracker's Instincts and also Invisible Stalker as a creature and Auramancer's Guise as a powerful aura.
Instead of running so many auras/creatures I'd rather play more self-milling cantrips.
Vessel of Nascency/Tracker's Instincts and Gather the Pack/Commune with the Gods/Grapple with the Past/Mulch can be decent options.

Hey thanks for the feedback!
I really like Laquatus's Creativity and Whispering Madness since they're like a Forgotten Creation that I don't have to wait for the effect to trigger on, plus the cipher option on Whispering Madness is nice for the flexibility.
I initially had Deep Analysis and Sever the Bloodline in my first draft of this list but ended up cutting them for other cards. I still really want to include Sever the Bloodline as it is pretty decent removal and the flashback option is great, but I'm not sure what I would cut at the moment. I don't know how I missed Cackling Counterpart when building this, I'll have to figure out what I'm dropping but I definitely want to add him in so thanks for that suggestion.
I'm not too keen on Greenwarden of Murasa due to his CMC and the fact that he's $1.00 at the moment. I would definitely include him if it brought them to the battlefield instead of my hand, is there anything like him that does that I'm not already running?
Bitter Revelation and Mental Note seem a bit underwhelming to me, I feel like it's kinda like a less impactful Tracker's Instincts/Commune with the Gods/Forbidden Alchemy/Grisly Salvage but having a few more similar options might be good. I'll have to play the deck a few times and get a feel before I decide on that.
I 100% agree on Chronic Flooding, I like that it's more controlled and you don't have to worry about it decking you too much, gonna swap those out for each other.
Embalmer's Tools was another card I had in the first draft of this list that I ended up cutting, it's another card I definitely want to include but am not sure what to cut, probably going to end up dropping Blossoming Wreath as you suggested earlier as I agree that it's not that impactful/worth taking up a slot so I might put it in to replace that.
Fact or Fiction and Epiphany at the Drownyard are both great cards, just need to make room for them, probably going to drop Feldon's Cane since I wont be as worried about decking myself without Curse of the Bloody Tome to make room for one of these.
Extractor Demon is already in the list haha, but yeah very good.
I'm liking Gather the Pack probably going to drop something like Wreath of Geists because I feel like there's already enough options for +x/+x per creature in graveyard in the deck already but we'll see.
Thanks again for the feedback.

Greenwarden of Murasa could be good, maybe over crop sigil
Mental Note could be clever
Chronic Flooding seems better than the curse of the bloody tome
The new explore creatures form Ixalan could be good as well
Embalmer's Tools could be a clever way to mill yourself to hit creatures and create an army
Extractor Demon seems good
Gather the Pack seems cool
Possibily cut feldon's cane, with elixir of immortality you have alot of inevibility
maybe blossoming wreath as well, gnaw to the bone does more work and having spells just gain you life aren't worth it a lot of the times IMO
I haven't had good expirences with temple of the false good, maybe cut for Rogue's Passage for a go tall creature?
This is a really sweet deck! Very budget and looks like it plays out in fun and unique ways each game. I really like tinkering with budget decks, as you can probably guess, and I am currently working of a couple of my own. If you have the chance maybe check them out? Un-FLICKING-believable!!!!!!!!!! is my newest. Thanks and keep building budget brews!

I didn't mean to put Gamble in that list, i was thinking of a different tutor.
Commune with the Gods, Grimoire of the Dead, Gnaw to the Bone, Mortivore, Splinterfright, Life from the Loam, Tracker's Instincts, Ghoultree, Deadbridge Chant, Mesmeric Orb, Gather the Pack, Chill of Foreboding, Rot Farm Skeleton, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Jarad's Orders, Body Double, Prismatic Omen, Damia, Sage of Stone are a few more.

And there is also digging cards such as Commune with the Gods, Commune with Nature, Benefaction of Rhonas, Enshrined Memories, Gather the Pack, Grapple with the Past, Pulse of Murasa, Read the Bones, Seek the Wilds and Evolutionary Leap. Not optimal, but maybe more in budget?
Too many options!
