Twilight Drover goes infinite with Phyrexian Altar and Ashnod's Altar, I think?

Mentor of the Meek is really good.

Viscera Seer is good for deck cycling.

Butcher of Malakir, Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact are soft locks in this deck.

Elenda, the Dusk Rose MIGHT be a better commander. Whilst she costs more mana, she comes online a bit quicker, potentially.

Karmic Guide, Reveillark and Blasting Station is an instant win. Both creatures are good enough to include on their own because value, but they can also just single-handedly win games. They create sacrifice-recursion loops where you can sacrifice them then one reanimates the other and then you rinse and repeat.

Sun Titan isn't optional. It just wins games.

Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad are good token producers. So is Elspeth, Knight-Errant.

Fleshbag Marauder is pretty great. You can just keep playing it and renimating it for some soft locks. Particularly with cards like Sheoldred, Whispering One.

Unburial Rites is great because you cast it twice. So is Lingering Souls.

Buried Alive is a really good tutor-thats-not-a-tutor kind of thing.

Victimize is just value.

Nim Deathmantle protects everything from death.

You can play Smokestack in decks like this if you want to be a dick.

Cathars' Crusade is a great win condition. Combined with like Lingering Souls it's just insane.

Attrition is just borderline unfair.

That's about all I can think of.

Today's testing silliness:

Vigor + Blasphemous Act on a token swarmed board seems like GG

Xenagos, the Reveler + Doubling Season + Rings of Brighthearth gave me two ults and 9 of the 14 went into play. Returned it with Eternal Witness and did it again the next turn lol

Together Forever + Karmic Guide / Saffi Eriksdotter has proven extremely silly and fun to play in a wipe heavy environment

not in deck, but worth mentioning that someone had Mycosynth Lattice out and I got to cast Avenger of Zendikar with Aura Shards out and then retrigger the etb with Saffi Eriksdotter and a Greater Good sac. got to devastate the two remaining players' landbases :)

Karmic Guide + Reveillark + Any sac outlet is infinite leaves and enters the battlefield triggers, plus whatever bonus you get for the sacrifice. Alternatively Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker goes infinite with a ton of things, like Restoration Angel or Zealous Conscripts

Goretast on Karametra's Short-Term Memory

I use Mistveil Plains mainly to recycle minions for Protean Hulk, Green Sun's Zenith, Chord of Calling, and Tooth and Nail. I like having the ability to use my creatures without relying on needing a Regrowth or Karmic Guide to bring it back for a future combo. It is an easy grab with a karametra trigger. Of course it sucks to draw and come in tapped, but it adds more utility to karametra and I end up pulling it almost every game once I get my duel lands out.

I was also thinking and Seedborn Muse might be a fun addition. You could use the untaps to Whitemane Lion on each of your opponents turn or mana dump for Ant Queen, Shalai, Voice of Plenty, Gavony Township, etc. You also already have a Winding Canyons to flash in creatures aswell.

@Goretast Thanks a lot for your comment! What would you suggest taking out for Emeria Shepherd? I used to have one in the deck, but I found the mana cost to be awkward without any immediate effect. I assumed that Karmic Guide, Sun Titan, and various Mistveil Plains effects would be sufficient--do you think I need more graveyard recursion?

Luminarch Ascension, Heirloom Blade, Herald's Horn, Vanquisher's Banner, Zendikar Resurgent, Profound Journey, Angel of Serenity, Karmic Guide, Sunblast Angel, Angel of the Dire Hour, and Marshal's Anthem. I have found great value with every card listed. Let me know if you need me to go more in depth.

If you're going to play Protean Hulk, I would highly recommend playing either Starved Rusalka or Drowned Rusalka. It lets you Flash hulk into rusalka + Karmic Guide, bringing back hulk and providing a sac outlet for him so you can do something like fetch Saffi Eriksdotter+ Trophy Mage who in turn gets Blasting Station. Outside ofthat, it just provides value which is only ok, but having it provide a direct line to your win condition (albeit requiring additional mana) makes it much better.

Hi! I think Sun Titan would be a really great addition to your deck. It's really powerful. Along with Saffi Eriksdotter (another good card) and your Karmic Guide, you can do amazing reanimation shenanigans; and with Roon of the Hidden Realm at the helm, this can simply go bonkers! :D
