Reassembling Skeleton Discussion

discollama on The Meren Midrange Machine

The last update on this deck was 4 months ago, have you considered adding some newer cards? I find that Krav, the Unredeemed has put in a TON of work for me. The growth, the card draw, and the lifegain can quickly get out of hand and it's pretty hard to beat a single : sac as much as you want ability! Razaketh, the Foulblooded and Journey to Eternity  Flip haven't done as much heavy lifting for me yet, but have huge potential as Razaketh is a nearly free sac outlet and instant speed tutor once out, and Journey is just another great way to recur creatures. Another thought if you wanted to go with +1/+1 counters (which I realize that this particular deck doesn't focus on) would be to include Shambling Shell as it dredges 3 and gives out a +1/+1 counter as well.

I also had some questions for you... Do you really find Awakening Zone and From Beyond to be worthwhile inclusions? I already own a copy of From Beyond, but it seems kind of slow on the token generation and never seemed that useful in my early builds, so I pulled it out. I also see that you're running 37 lands, while my deck runs 34 and I almost never hurt for lands with all the ramp and land tutoring. Just starting out with a Sakura Tribe Elder in your hand and basic Forest and Swamp is often enough to get a ton of mana on the board from my experience, do you have issues getting mana flooded?. One last question, I promise! Have you thought about Reassembling Skeleton? It's done a lot of work for me as an early sac target to get XP counters, and once you get Skullclamp out, together they basically read: ", : Draw two cards", but you know, with the added bonus of all the death triggers.

Thanks for a great deck tech, you've given me some ideas to tweak my own deck! I hope that we see you do a tech on other Meren builds like tokens and +1/+1 counters!

Lieutenantpichu while I have tried cards like Reassembling Skeleton I don't like how we don't gain value from either it dying or entering the battlefield. A good 2-drop to try is Doomed Dissenter which I was playing for a while, but it is also not aggressive enough for my liking. With Goblin Instigator, Legion Warboss and Rite of Belzenlok we never have a shortage of dummies to sacrifice.

you almost might want to think about putting in a Reassembling Skeleton especially with all the sacrifice that you got going on it is a nice way to make sure that you almost always can have something to sacrifice

Seems like everytime I turn around I get one card stuck in my head to play and for now its lotleth giant. Loved seeing it here. How about Reassembling Skeleton for recurring recursion. Maybe in the sideboard. He works with the baron as well. Also, I know it doesnt really hold witht eh flavor but for the sideboard you may want some deathrite shaman, He is legal standard right now according to the card listing here on TO. (which i just found out today that there are a good many older cards I loved that are legal right now)

I forgot ghast can't block, i'm an idiot, never listen to me ever.

I would still look for a cheap blocker with recursion. Reassembling Skeleton could be hilarious.

Matrixxx999: I've tried Razaketh, the Foulblooded previously, and it really wasn't that great in here. I had high hopes for the repeatable tutor, but in my current build, it didn't do much. If I ran something like Reassembling Skeleton or Ophiomancer to have a repeatable sacrifice, it could be good.

I don't run the black rituals simply because they are a one and done spell, and those slots could be used for something better.

hkhssweiss much appreciated! :)

Drana was at one point at the helm of this deck too, but I switched to Erebos for the card advantage and because he doesn't die as much to my own spells.

Geth was also a former general for the deck, and it was fun having him run things, but in the end I was looking for something of a Pox deck for mono black. Not quite stax, but just enough pain to give people a headache.

Mhm. Contamination /IS/ that good. The deck in its current version just can't support it. I used to run it with a full package: Bloodghast, Reassembling Skeleton, Bitterblossom and the like along with Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact and sacrifice effects. But the deck started taking a different direction, so I had to remove them, and so Contamination had to go too.

I actually swapped Mind Stone and Thought Vessel for the 'colored' rocks that I mentioned earlier. So far it's been good.

As for Mindblade Render (and Dark Confidant) I find them more suitable for aggro decks. That's where I usually put them in. But I might make room for Twilight Prophet depending on how fast I can get to ten permanents. Card advantage, life gain, /and/ I get to bleed my opponents? Yes, please.

Mutilate and Ashes to Ashes also used to be in the deck, but the many non-basics that I run kept making the former ineffective and the latter was axed because I was cutting down on sorcery speed removal.

What's your experience with Torment of Hailfire? That card has always been on my radar, but I've never run it nor seen it in action. I don't like it when they get to choose their punishment. :))

Sicktoid on Krav, the Unhugged

Let me see if I can remember what I originally typed...

I basically seconded the Genesis Chamber suggestion - that card is nuts with Bloodsoaked Champion and Nether Traitor. If you want to go more towards that kind of "whenever a non-token creature enters/dies" thing, I'd consider including Reassembling Skeleton. These can all be tutored by Buried Alive or Corpse Connoisseur and if you decide to include the latter one, Gravecrawler could also be a worthy addition even if your deck's zombie count ain't otherwise that high. These weenies that come back from the graveyard also work really well with Pawn of Ulamog and Ogre Slumlord that someone already suggested.

Smothering Abomination and Dark Prophecy are great draw engines in a deck like this.

Carnival of Souls might work here too if you wanna go more combo oriented. I think the card might actually work pretty well with your commander.
