Hell's Caretaker Discussion

I was thinking you may want to focus harder on recursion. It's kinda a form of card advantage and you can get a bunch Reaper King triggers especially if you are able to keep getting small cost scarecrows back into your hand Graveshifter

Mairsil, the Pretender and Mirror-Mad Phantasm mills your deck. Narcomoeba and Haunted Dead provide creatures for Dread Return to get Necrotic Ooze and then you can set up some combos from there. I forget the exact combos right now.
Also Hell's Caretaker means you can go off on your next upkeep.

I like it! Here are some tidbits.
- I like the downshift to 3 color and feel it doesn't take too much away from the deck. I would change Ikra out for Sengir, the Dark Baron though.
- I love the inclusion of Fiend Artisan, Hell's Caretaker, Smothering Abomination and Yawgmoth, Thran Physician. Brilliant, not sure how some of these did not occur to me before.
- stay tuned for my response version!

Ayara is one of my favourite commanders. I have a much less budget friendly build that is pretty dirty. I appreciate the version you have made but I might suggest a couple of cards that could give it a bit more punch without punching you in the wallet. Cabal Stronghold for that late game ramp. [twighlight call can straight up win the game. Pitiless Plunderer sooo much value. Whisper, Blood Liturgist or Hell's Caretaker trade tokens for token makers to make more tokens!!!

Check some Shirei decks, most creatures have just 1 power, so they can sac/reanimate all the time and its pretty sick :)
Village Rites is better version of Altar's Reap
Black Market can be very good, especially if you can go crazy and put tons of counters on it.. or it just eats removal instead of some more important card in your deck.
Tortured Existence - absolutely great creature retrieval just for and can go crazy with your Desecrated Tomb. I use it in combination of Phyrexian Altar as infinite etb/etg engine. Bitter Ordeal to exile everyone's library; Emergence Zone to make it instant speed if needed.
Hell's Caretaker can be fairly good reanimator for Shirei aswell.
Crypt of Agadeem,Dark Ritual,Bubbling Muck,Songs of the Damned are cheap for mana ramp.
Mutilate is just board version of Defile, might aswell use both?
Altar of the Brood easy mill just for that triggers upon any permanent you play.
Insidious Dreams - to cast your combos from top of your library if you manage to keep Bolas's Citadel on board. Forever Young/Gravepurge for casting creatures from your graveyard (top of your library with Bolas's Citadel).
Blanket of Night if you get more non-swamp lands and you're on low budget. Its just cheaper enchantment version of Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth.
Call the Bloodline could be easy way to get creatures into your graveyard, get some sacrifice dork and reanimate them later.
Priest of Forgotten Gods this pretty lady could be a nice addition to Shirei aswell, if you get some cards that make sacrifice dorks/etc. blahblah

Hell's Caretaker is a great creature, but it is definitely underpowered by today's standards, so I have made a newer version of it, as seen, here:
Hell's Undertaker Show
Creature - horror
, sacrifice a creature: return target creature card from your graveyard to the battlefield; activate this ability only during your turn.
For the same, albeit slightly stricter, mana cost, this creature has higher power and toughness and less restrictions on its ability.
What does everyone else say about this creature? Do you like it?
