Puppeteer Clique

Creature — Faerie Wizard


When Puppeteer Clique enters the battlefield, put target creature card from an opponent's graveyard onto the battlefield under your control. It gains haste. At the beginning of your next end step, exile it.

Persist (When this creature dies, if it had no -1/-1 counters on it, return it to the battlefield under its owner's control with a -1/-1 counter on it.)

TheRowdyPaladin on Karador Value - Combo

2 weeks ago

Most of my combos require a sac outlet (Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Ashnod's Altar, Viscera Seer), some way to recur a creature infinitely (Kitchen Finks and Melira, Sylvok Outcast, Renegade Rallier and Saffi Eriksdotter or Karmic Guide with Saffi Eriksdotter and Reveillark) and Blood Artist to have infinite drain.

I can also use Puppeteer Clique, Ashnod's Altar, and Nim Deathmantle to reanimate all of my opponent's graveyards with haste. Replace Puppeteer Clique with Cultivator of Blades to make infinite tokens.

Literally any card with persist (Lingering Tormentor, Puppeteer Clique, Rattleblaze Scarecrow, Wingrattle Scarecrow) and a sac outlet goes infinite off of Mikaeus. Other than that: run some of the mana doublers black is known for (Nirkana Revenant, Crypt Ghast, and the general doublers like Extraplanar Lens and Caged Sun. Oh and Bubbling Muck.

Happy deckbuilding!

Also have you tried Panharmonicon to get double the prossh etb so you can get even more dudes? Come to think of it... Melira, Sylvok Outcast plus stuff with persist (especially Murderous Redcap, Woodfall Primus, and Puppeteer Clique) could work pretty well.

You could run some morbid cards since you can enable them easily:
Malicious Affliction, Reaper from the Abyss, Skirsdag High Priest, Tragic Slip.

You could run some persist/undying cards to double(ish) your value:
Antler Skulkin, Cauldron Haze, Cauldron of Souls, Puppeteer Clique, Twilight Shepherd, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Twilight Shepherd = :(

You're a little light on draw power. Read the Bones or Bitter Revelation could be worth including.

At present i don't see too many ways of generating infinite mana. I see the Necrotic Ooze/Palladium Myr/Pili-Pala one but that's it

If you add Decaying Soil, it goes infinite with Priest of Gix+ Ashnod's Altar

When I think of generals for monoblack combo decks Mikaeus, the Unhallowed comes to mind. (Mikaeus, the Unhallowed+Triskelion deals infinite damag by removing its last counter to deal 1 damage to itself which brings it back with more counters). Also mikaeus+ any creature with persist like Puppeteer Clique+ any free sac outlet like Altar of Dementia gives infinite triggers as the two counters cancel eachother out. Workhorse also provides infinite mana with mikeus

Blasting Station is another free sac outlet in such a combo as each time the loop is performed the creature enters from the graveyard untapping the station.

Provided you have 7 swamps in play Staff of Domination gives infinite mana and draws your entire deck with the help of the Magus of the Coffers you already have

Cmasa435: Replaced Phyrexian Gargantua with Puppeteer Clique. Side Board Mockery of Nature for Vraska the Unseen. Those last two, I'll have to buy. I do not have any currently on hand.

My brother plays Daxos the Returned, and a few friends of mine also run a lot of irritating artifacts or enchantments to run up against with this deck (Sword of Feast and Famine)

I would say replacing Phyrexian Gargantua for Puppeteer Clique. Gargantua Isn't bad, but its a bit costly for what it does, though admittedly you can recur it for free with Meren. Another possible thing to replace is Mockery of Nature, as you only get its trigger if you cast it, so recursion with Meren wont do the trick, though to be fair it does let you sac something and get it out cheaper, and it would take a while to get to 9 counters so you would mostly be adding it to the hand. Damn, its hard finding cuts here, all the stuff is good. As for Sifter of Skulls Vs. Awakening Zone, I guess its more of a meta decision, the people I play with tend to pack more creature hate, so Zone being an enchantment makes it harder to kill. Also depending on your meta, you could ditch Vampire Hexmage unless someone is running a +1/+1 strat or Superfriends I've found it to be underwhelming. And for me personally, I'm not fond of Butcher of Malakir, 7 drop for a creature that is more expensive and much easier to kill than a Grave Pact or Dictate, though it can be brought back easier.

Cmasa435, I have Replaced Evolutionary Leap for Birthing Pod, Morbid Curiosity for Dictate of Erebos, and Sangromancer for Gray Merchant of Asphodel. As for the other cards you've suggested: I like Yahenni, Undying Partisan over Carrion Feeder, Sifter of Skulls is my Awakening Zone on legs, Spawnwrithe doesn't fit so well, & I like Puppeteer Clique & Hope of Ghirapur, but have no clue what I'd take out for those.
