Karn, Silver Golem Discussion

So I dunno if this would make your deck more viable or more jank... You could use Karn, Silver Golem or similar with Mycosynth Lattice (already in the deck) to animate any planeswalker. There is already a bit of an artifact theme here so you could try out animating one of the darettis or Tezzerets.
Since helm of the host copies at combat step infinite or many extra combats could work well:
Aggravated Assault is likely the best since you just put mana into it. I would say Najeela, the Blade-Blossom too but honestly she just wins once you start using her ability... extra turns work too of course.
I wish you luck with this hilarious deck!

Why not try Karn, Silver Golem in this deck? With a good amount of Mana you probably can otko with all your artifacts

I really like the idea of Genju of the Fens in this deck, but I don't think it really gets anything done if Lim-Dul isn't on the board. It's solid when he is in play, maybe even great, but a seven mana commander isn't always going to be around. As for Karn, Silver Golem, I find him very appealing. The deck currently has to make use of some fairly expensive tools if it wants to get rid of artifacts or enchantments as I am obviously in mono black, so the ability to turn all of my kill spells essentially into Putrefy would be very valuable. Personally, I just don't know where he slots in. The only thing I can think of removing for him right now is Unstable Obelisk. Have any other ideas?

I have 2 suggestions for you:
1st - Genju of the Fens, this one might seem odd but with Urborg in play you can choose any land you want (you should aim for the good utility lands ofc), then make it a creature, kill it and reanimate it with Lim-Dul's triggered ability, remember it must be a creature when it dies but doesn't need to still be a creature once it is in the graveyard;
2nd - Karn, Silver Golem, same reasoning as the previous but for artifacts instead of lands. Steal all the Sol Rings, etc...

Nice find. I'm sure you will find many other combos too as you play and alter the deck. My first EDH was Karn, Silver Golem and it was like Christmas every time I played it. I'd find some new to me way for various things to interact in ridiculous ways...

You've got a few infinite combos in here that you didn't mention. Figured I'd say something in case on the offchance you weren't aware.
It seems like a fun time, the cmc is a bit high and there aren't a ton of mana accelerators/ramp in the deck. You could always add more rocks to speed it up if you feel like it becomes an issue.
If your main goal is having fun with Karn, you might like Liquimetal Coating, pop some lands or fizzle some enchantments.

enpc is correct once they are in the grave they are not effected by that part sadly.
Something you might consider though is that Nim Deathmantle only cares that things are creatures when they die, I abuse this in my Karn, Silver Golem deck. As long as there is 5 mana hanging around when something of mine dies it comes back. A bit expensive but works nicely. Sydri, Galvanic Genius is able to do the same thing with the deathmantle.

Avacyn, Angel of Hope allows you to untap Merieke without risk of destroying the stolen creature, since it will gain Indestructible once under your control.
Ghostly Flicker, like Eerie Interlude, allows you to flicker both Merieke and the stolen creature, which will untap Merieke and let you keep the stolen creature when Merieke leaves play.
Want to steal artifacts, too? With Karn, Silver Golem or Sydri, Galvanic Genius you can! The artifact will still get destroyed if Merieke untaps, but you can still steal a piece of some Johnny's artifact combo and keep it out of their graveyard.
