Reassembling Skeleton Discussion

SirLandus on The Nightman Cometh

xSKINCOLLECTORx Thanks for the comments and suggestions!

  1. Phyrexian Altar + Reassembling Skeleton isn't meant to generate infinite mana, but paired with Pitiless Plunderer creates infinite death triggers and requires 1 of 3 aristocrats to drain all opponents.

  2. Deathgreeter is by no means meant to get me infinite life, but rather bolster life lost from other sources. I specifically chose it over other options such as Syr Konrad, the Grim for the CMC 1. The draining aristocrats I'm using for that effect are CMC 2, 2, and 3; making them a lot more consistent to play.

StopShot on Banned and Broken Cards

I’m going to go out on a limb and say Contamination. I know its not banned in any format, but if it were legal in Modern or Standard I definitely think it would get the ban-hammer. And yes, I know that can be said for lots of other legacy cards, but Contamination is probably the most playgroup banned EDH card I have seen so far. While mana rocks have improved a lot like the expansion of talismans, Arcane Signet, and Arcum's Astrolabe, the card Contamination can still be as harsh as Iona, Shield of Emeria against mono-color EDH decks. And think about it, in practically all 60 card formats this card is effectively a lock your opponent out of the game for three mana card. While it wasn’t nearly as busted when it first came out we’ve had cards like Bitterblossom, Reassembling Skeleton, Bloodghast, and Dreadhorde Invasion get printed which has made its drawback laughable. While I’m all for good two card combos, this one just drags out the game instead of auto-winning, and its incredibly easy to pull off the lock by turn 3 without ramp. My argument is this is a card that is just cruel and its busted just like these other cards, especially the fact it can corrupt your mana to the point you can’t even cast your enchantment removal cards anymore. That’s just top grade evil that cards like Blood Moon and Back to Basics can’t even compete with and those cards are hated enough as it is.

The combo just needs a sacrifice outlet.

Example combo: Reassembling Skeleton + Ashnod's Altar +Pitiless Plunder

Sacrifice the skeleton to the altar to float 2 mana, then when the dies trigger resolves you get the treasure token that you sac for one black and then use one of your floating colourless mana to return the skeleton to play tapped.

This would get infinite mana, infinite death triggers and infinite etb triggers.

But it’s pretty interchangeable, so you could use Reassembling Skeleton Pitiless Plunderer Pawn of Ulamog and Altar of Dementia

I built a deck around it, that could use Korvold or Sek’kuar as the general and still work. I think you’ve commented on it when it was in its early stages but take a look if you want.

And I Jund can’t seem to get enough of you!

If you’re sacrificing creatures maybe adding Pitiless Plunderer in to go with Pawn of Ulamog could be helpful, when you sav the token for ramp they’ll trigger Korvold as he doesn’t specify nontoken.

Adding in Reassembling Skeleton and you’re all set for a budget infinite combo, (if you like) that will get Korvold to lethal damage to take someone out with commander damage, all you would need is a sac outlet, this would be a fairly solid combo as you don’t cast the skeleton from the yard, it’s an ability which you come across less counters for.

You could cut Sifter of Skulls for the plunderer, same mana coast but strictly better.

Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper wouldn’t be out of place in here too.

Hope this feedback was useful in some way :)

Profet93: Phyrexian Altar goes infinite with several different sets of cards centering around Nether Traitor or Reassembling Skeleton, whereas Ashnod's cannot. Which works well, since it avoids the issue of having Deathmantle as a (moderately) dead card.

Also, the flavor helps!

Thanks KibaAlpha as always.

Pitiless Plunderer I am going to keep for now, I feel it is an extremely powerful value engine in this deck that can power up a Reassembling Skeleton, for example, with multiple recursions without going infinite.

I agree with you on Revel in Riches but I like the idea of having an alternate wincon in the deck in case someone goes out of control with lifegain or something similar.

Butcher of Malakir I almost cut last round of edits but decided to leave him in since my local meta is really creature heavy right now, he will get cut when I see it shifting.

Also agree with Sadistic Hypnotist, he will draw alot of hate and is one of my worst sac outlets being at sorcery speed only. I'm hoping to trigger his ability a few times before taking him out of deck.

Only point I disagree with is the Deathgreeter vs Solemn Simulacrum recommendation. I don't see the value of Deathgreeter, there are already at least 6 other cards that trigger lifegain on death (aristocrats), and Solemn Simulacrum provides so much value, especially with Teysa Karlov on the board. Recur him with Mimic Vat or Nim Deathmantle for aggressive ramping.
