Hazoret's Monument Discussion

How would you feel about Hazoret's Monument? Let's you dump useless cards to dig if you need to; also reduces the cost of the rare 2/3 drops.

I have been playing Pummeler since MTGGoldfish first published the Poisonless Infect (https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/budget-magic-88-36-tix-standard-poisonless-infect) decklist, so I can really appreciate what you are trying to do here.
First, I second shame2rest in adding Invigorated Rampage. I also highly recommend making room for Blossoming Defense. Samut is loaded with value, but you will seldom be able to cast her and have mana remaining to play the pump spells you want on her first turn down. Blossoming Defense is a must have to help protect her and ensure you get a chance to untap with her on the battlefield. Then you can Rampage and Fling her all you want.
I would consider cutting Onward / Victory to make room.
Second, your creature count is very low for all the pump spells you are running. It's possible the hasty creatures will help offset some of your opponents' removal, but you should probably get some other good creatures that work with your strategy. Maybe Lathnu Hellion would work nicely, since its energy will keep it around for one turn. Hit for four damage on an open battlefield on turn threen. Then on the next turn, you should have four mana for an Invigorated Rampage followed up with a Fling, combining for 8 combat damage and 8 more from the Fling. That's 20 damage between turns 3 and 4. Your low creature count is also another important factor to consider adding Blossoming Defense.
I really like your inclusion of Supernatural Stamina. That makes for some nasty tricks, especially with the Flings.
Because your creature count is so low, you are going to get less value out of your monuments. I would consider cutting those, but I can see where the reduced cost of Samut with Hazoret's Monument can be enticing. Rhonas's Monument isn't as useful as it first appears because you cannot target a Samut you are casting with the monument's trigger. If you want to keep the monuments, I may suggest cutting the Supernatural Stamina to simplify your mana base and make the deck more consistent and add some more creature threats in its place. I mentioned Hellion before. Voltaic Brawler is also a very aggressive threat that works with your colors.
For your Bloodlust Inciter, I don't really see the benefit. If you want to keep your curve, you could consider Narnam Renegade as a nasty little attacker if you give it trample. Unfortunately, the deathtouch is not active when you fling it. You could also consider swapping the Inciter's for a playset of Attune with Aether, especially if you consider adding in the Hellions as I mentioned before. Swap in one swamp so that you can more easily cast the Supernatural Stamina, and you could also add one plain if you keep Onward / Victory.
Hope any of this can be useful to you.

I've run most of these in the past and over time moved away from them. Both Mimic Vat and Indomitable Creativity are too off the beaten path for the play style I have when piloting the deck. Both are good cards for decks like this, but just not up my alley.
Dualcaster Mage was in an earlier rendition of this deck, but since my focus is more on creatures/enchantments I have taken it out.
I would love Gamble, but my tutor targets are combo pieces and I don't really have recursion in case I have to discard that piece.
Goblin Offensive was of course part of my original build, but throughout the development of this deck I have moved to appreciate a closer ratio between CMC and goblin and prefer that 1:1 rather than 1:4 that the cheapest Offensive I could cast.
Again, Yurip, thanks for the comments! All of which are great choices, but just not the direction I am aiming for with this build!

I understand about the lens and quest for pureflame. Grenzo though has some wicked defense against top deck tutors with the exile ability.
I think that Indomitable Creativity needs a place though! especially since you dont run temp with vengeance. I really like Mimic Vat too as it adds alot of depth to the board at all points in the game.
Any thoughts on Dualcaster Mage the vat and panharmonicon help him greatly!
Gamble as tutor for panharmonicon?
Finally what about Goblin Offensive for dumping mana from mana echoes.
Thanks for your time!

So I was heavily considering adding Hazoret's Monument, but Ruby Medallion has one less mana cost, so I'll likely go with that. Quicksilver Amulet might work as well, but I'll have to save up a little bit if I wanna buy a few of those. Thanks for the suggestions!

Dude! This is tight! I saw it and thought to myself: "man! Giants! I've got a ton of suggestions!" But I don't. You've nailed the creme of the crop.
A few things, though:
Ramp:Semblance Anvil - I cannot explain just howbadass this one is!
Balefire Liege might sweeten the deal for you, a lot :)
Apart from that... i got nothing :) good on ya. Stay frosty!

Thanks for the input!
Mj3913 I am terrible at thinking about tokens builds, especially with Cryptolith Rite, but I believe that that could be powerful. I don't know that there's a way to ramp into Lili t3 with any combination of standard cards, but I think t4 Lili into Razaketh is probably gamebreaking. I don't know how to make that consistent, though.
jparker-sartori21 Yeah that's what I was thinking too! I'll have to tinker around with a list. I don't know that Reanimating a dude can be consistent enough for standard, though. I feel like the deck might have to have a solid midrange backup plan.
I threw together a list here:
Control being a misnomer since it has a good midgame like all B/W lists, but it can win with Brisela, regular beatdown, or Approach of the Second Sun which is instantly tutorable with Raza... What do you all think? This is my idea for a kind of toolbox build. I'm also going to throw together a prototype for GB midrange/value and Mardu reanimator.
