Pattern of Rebirth
Enchantment — Aura
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
5 days ago
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.
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 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.

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.

Control_Train, thank you for this deck! My god is was fun! I did ofcourse changed a few things, but for 95% I play the same build as you do.
Only swaps I made were: Sheoldred, Whispering One , performed outstanding tonight. She got removed but turn after she was back again and did a shit ton of work for me. Normally I'm not a huge fan of her, cause of her high mana and often getting removed the same turn. But luckily Meren doesnt really care for that :)
Phyrexian Obliterator Basically another win con in the deck. I tutored for him tonight cause I wanted to see in action and people just don't block him. Swinging in for a solid 5 damage a turn and if they block it's gonna cost. Where he really shined was the fact that he is 4 mana, so meren can get him early out of the graveyard.
Survival of the Fittest Really good as well, did a shit ton of work tonight. The fact that you can use it the turn it gets too the field is really good. Shame it's an enchantment and not recurrable, but it gives too much value not to run it. This card will replace Pattern of Rebirth cause I rather have the recurrable tutor then the one time tutor. Next to that every game I was consistently flooded with mana (compliments on that) so I don't mind that much for it going into my hand, worst case it gets countered and then meren will pull it out of the graveyard.
As you said above Caustic Caterpillar is personal preference. Played him almost every game and got value of him. Don't think it will be any different as the dinosaur.
Again thank you so much for you build, if I try out any more cards or the cards above more games Ill let you know again :)

So this is a link to my paper Karador deck: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/that-was-karadorable-copy-1/?cb=1554224847
I think it has a lot of the things that you are trying to do, minus some synergies. My deck tries to grind more value from the creatures and eventually win through a fantastic win with Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord sacrificing Lord of Extinction after fueling the graveyard with Hermit Druid (the deck plays lots of basics, so it isn't as bad as it looks to the opponents) and Underrealm Lich .
Some general suggestions for your deck:
Cut the cluestones and add the signets in their place. The difference between ramping on 3 to 5 is less important than from 2 to 4.
Cards that I think should be in every Karador deck:
Pattern of Rebirth This was reprinted in UMA and is a couple dollars. If you can kill your stuff, it fetches anything at instant speed.
Birthing Pod Pod is so much value and it makes you consider your creature curve. It helps lower it a bit to give your more diverse choices on the lower end. Pod also just so happens to kill your commander (who is usually cast for 3 mana) to fetch a Void Winnower to make opponents sad.
Eldritch Evolution I am unsure if I saw this card in the deck, but this card is a baby pod that can get ANY card with x+2 mana of the card you sacrificed. You can turn a 5 drop into a better 4, or even a 7. Whatever is needed. Amazing value.
Pattern of Rebirth occurrence in decks from the last year
