Pattern of Rebirth

Enchantment — Aura

Enchant creature

When enchanted creature is put into a graveyard, that creature's controller may search their library for a creature card, put that card onto the battlefield, then shuffle their library.

Pattern of Rebirth Discussion

Alright, I did a little test after some games and put every piece of ramp/fetch/land support card in one pile. I was actually surprised at just how ridiculous it was. I also realized I could use a little more balance on my removal, card draw, recursion. So, with that, I made the following updates:

Cards Out Chord of Calling , Greater Good , Grow from the Ashes , Hickory Woodlot , Memorial to Unity , Mulch , Undergrowth Champion .

Cards in Beast Within , Finale of Devastation , Ghalta, Primal Hunger , Pattern of Rebirth , Seasons Past , Triumph of the Hordes , Whirlwind .

Comments welcome, of course.

Abzkaban on Aghave, tequila token party

Hey! Saw your deck posted before FLATSO99's and thought I'd comment since I also play Ghave.

First off I assume your goal with this deck is to play "fair" with a go-wide tokens and counters strategy with some options to win with a combo, but I'd like to offer my primer for you to take a look at and borrow anything you like. I go into detail the different combos you can get from Ghave and how they work as well as a list of combos found in my list.

That being said, I have a few suggestions for how you can strengthen the deck even if you're not looking to combo off as soon as you can.

Your mana curve is a bit high, and I think you can cut some of the more mana-heavy cards to trim the deck and let it play more smoothly. For instance I see Butcher of Malakir but no Dictate of Erebos or Grave Pact . I understand if it's a budget problem, but I personally run Grave Pact thanks to it's lower cmc. Yes, Martyr's Bond does the same thing and even extends to permanents other than creatures, but I find it's not worth the mana cost. You could probably cut that one, too.

I know you mentioned Walking Ballista , and I eventually cut Triskelion in my own deck for it. It only needs an extra card (either a sac outlet or Blood Artist effect) to combo with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed which will still often be cheaper on the mana to cast than just Triskelion .

Cryptolith Rite is strictly better than Citanul Hierophants . I'd swap that in for it.

Unless you're building the deck around it, I'd cut anything with Landfall. It's almost never worth it if you're not making it a big theme in your deck.

I'm not a fan of Faerie Macabre . There are better cards for graveyard hate. Bojuka Bog comes to mind which you should run if you really need the grave hate. If you're insistent on having a spell fill that slot, Shred Memory is better as it also acts as a tutor for a 2 cmc card.

Pack Rat is unnecessary. I'd focus on the saproling tokens. You'll have better synergy in the deck that way.

I also don't think you're running enough elves to get the most out of Elvish Archdruid . I'd cut that in favor of other ramp. The ramp you have in the deck already is pretty good without him.

I notice you have Kitchen Finks which is an excellent combo piece, but have you considered running any undying creatures (besides the effect of Mikaeus, the Unhallowed )? I highly recommend Young Wolf as he's an easy route to getting as many tokens as you want. Strangleroot Geist or Butcher Ghoul can also be good. You could run more persist creatures if you like as well. I've liked having Puppeteer Clique and Woodfall Primus in my deck since if you can recur them over and over, you get some awesome effects. If you want cheap ones to play, Safehold Elite is a possibility, and Modern Masters now has Putrid Goblin which is basically Butcher Ghoul but with persist instead of undying.

Protean Hulk has been the center of most of my wins. Pattern of Rebirth is a quick way to cheat him out, but you should consider Natural Order as well since it gets the hulk out just as quickly. I see Karmic Guide , but I don't see Reveillark or Saffi Eriksdotter . I would highly recommend running at least one if not both of them. They create an endless recursion combo that lets you get everything back from your graveyard or trigger a Blood Artist effect to kill the table. Now I assume you use Leonin Relic-Warder with Karmic to go infinite. That's good, but I still say having the recursion availability to access your graveyard is a big advantage.

I don't know what your meta is like, but adding a bit more removal might help as well. At the very least Anguished Unmaking is better than Utter End and worth the switch.

Anyway sorry for the super long comment. I just really like Ghave and wanted to leave some constructive criticism to help you with your deck. I generally prefer that kind of feedback myself. Hopefully this helps.

Cheers!

Abzkaban on Abzan combos

That’s a tricky one. I’ll have to research it when I’ve got time. Most Abzan combos tend to use the graveyard. I have a few non-graveyard combos in my deck, but they all involve Ghave, Guru of Spores who doesn’t exactly fit in your deck the way it’s built.

I will say, though, that Natural Order is as quick as Pattern of Rebirth for cheating out The Hulk . You might consider running it alongside pattern.

I’ll see if I can come up with some grave-free combos later today to help you circumvent the grave hate.

Frank_Glascock on Meren of Clan Nel Toth: Dig up her Bones

Ripwater, thanks for the reply. I always look forward with much anticipation to your input.

Everytime I try to move away from Control_Train's list I end up putting back in his card's that I cut.

The creatures he is playing that I am not are Destructor Dragon , Massacre Girl and Silhana Wayfinder .

Those spots are occupied by Kokusho, the Evening Star , Mindslicer and Sheoldred, Whispering One .

Silhana Wayfinder is subpar. We have discussed my view that Destructor Dragon is overcosted. I agree with your theory that Massacre Girl would threaten Meren so I am hesitant to play her. I like having Kukusho and Sheoldred to help close out games. Am I wrong that Control_Train's list lacks any closers?

He has played Mindslicer in the past. The theory behind this card's inclusion is solid. We should be able to play top deck much better than our opponents by utilizing the graveyard. It is a nice inclusion for our Birthing Pod chain. How has it performed for you?

Is Sylvan Safekeeper a recent addition? I thought for sure you were not playing this card as of last week.

Pattern of Rebirth , Dismember , Mausoleum Secrets , Casualties of War , and Final Parting were replaced by Birthing Pod , Sylvan Library , Survival of the Fittest a Imperial Seal and Guardian Project in my list.

I only have reservations concerning Casulties of War. The three tutors (or tutor engines) I am playing have proven to be superior to his across all formats. Sylvan Library is a green staple, and is an extremely strong early turn play. You made a convincing argument in defense of Guardian Project. Dismember seems like the weakest of the removal spells.

I cut Sol Ring but it was like pulling teeth and may make way back into the deck. I tutor for Sylvan Safekeeper frequently and the deck tutors creatures easier than artifacts. Still, Lightning Greaves should be in my list. Safekeeper is the superior card in my opinion but this deck has to have Meren on board. Has Lightning Greaves been effective for you?

As a side note, it does not seem Control_Train reinserts cards he cuts. I wish I could say the same. I put Prowling Serpopard back into the deck. Chalk it up to an irrational fear of blue countermagic. No attempts at justification will be made for its inclusion.

I see that your maybeboard has additional reveillark and friends cards, but is missing Fiend Hunter . It infinite combos with a sac outlet and either sun titan or karmic guide. It can also be used as a way to permanently exile with a sac outlet by in response to your etb trigger you sacrifice it so its ltb trigger happens first.

I also highly suggest Boonweaver Giant + Pattern of Rebirth ( and Academy Rector to find pattern easier) and Protean Hulk since both can be used to get your entire combo on board.

I have a karador deck that uses these to great effect and is currently ranked 4 out of 30 some in my local league. The combo is written out in my deck description if you want to take a look.

I had it in for a while actually and felt like it wasn't impactful enough as an enchantment just drawing the 1 card and I would rather have a sacccable idiot like Lotleth Troll to put Pattern of Rebirth on so I can combo off. As it stands right now, all of my enchantments can be used as a part of a game winning combo.

Why no Boonweaver Giant and Pattern of Rebirth ? You can use those as a second copy of Protean Hulk and more consistantly combo off.

I would also say you should get more sac outlets such as Viscera Seer and Carrion Feeder

Here is my list. I think it could give you some different ideas. +1 For using my favorite commander

kirkhammett778 Oh I see, I'm drafting a more casual deck without infinite combos but that makes sense if the whole goal is to assemble your combo and protect it.

What do you think about the permanent based tutors like: 1. Prime Speaker Vannifar 2. Pattern of Rebirth 3. Protean Hulk
