Remembrance

Enchantment

Whenever a nontoken creature you control is put into a graveyard from play, you may search your library for a creature card with the same name as that creature, reveal the card and put it into your hand. If you do, shuffle your library.

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor on JLK's Shadowborn Apostle l Game Knights #18

Us_marine91 - that is tough since the Shadowborn Apostles alone will cost you around $100 for 30 of them. That being said, I would suggest looking for cards with similar effects to the non-budget options in JLK's deck. For example, Vindictive Vampire and Cruel Celebrant are budget alternatives to Blood Artist, or Butcher of Malakir is a budget version of Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact. Then I would look for cards that have effects which are "close enough" to some of the more expensive options. For example, Command the Dreadhorde, Bolas's Citadel, Pitiless Plunderer, and Dark Prophecy can all act as passable stand-ins for Remembrance (I can't believe that card has somehow crept up to $5!), Thrumming Stone, Black Market, and Phyrexian Arena respectively.

I'd also recommend checking out EDHrec's Shadowborn Apostle page. There you can see which commander's are used for that particular strategy. They also have a budget filter which may help you find some replacement cards.

Thanks for the comment LanceBluPaladin!

Dragonlord Atarka was more of a pet-card inclusion, but I do agree that she is the most replaceable creature in the deck. Another dragon which I had initially considered in her place was Drakuseth, Maw of Flames . He is an absolute house with double strike and can easily dish out more damage than her. I might give Drakuseth a go in place of big Atarka.

I have always found Volcanic Offering to over perform in the games I've cast. It may be that my meta runs more multi-colored decks, but I've never had an issue with not being able to target lands. Also, don't forget that all you need is one viable target of each type. Your opponent can chose the same targets as you (as long as they don't own one of them).

As I mentioned ealier, adding in something like Elvish Piper might get in the way of tutors like Selvala's Stampede . I've been considering Quicksilver Amulet , but I often don't have a creature in hand to use it on. Sneak Attack is my preferred safety valve because it pairs well with Worldspine Wurm , the Titans, and Eye of Ugin . Side note, if you play the Naya colors and run Remembrance you can just cycle the Titans and Worldspine Wurm over and over again. I'll keep considering the Amulet though as redundancy is key for a deck like this.

Mizzium Mortars is a fantastic suggestion, thank you for that one.

So far in play-testing I haven't made enough tokens to really abuse a card like Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip. I usually only have 2-3 tokens on the field at a time and those are oftened polymorphed into a large creature or used as a chump blocker.

Lastly, it's great to hear from someone else that the deck functions well enough to achieve its goal. I can play test it myself, but getting an outside, objective view/experience from someone else goes a long way in deck building. Thank you for that.

tgood4 I’ve actually ran all those in previous iterations of this deck.

Remembrance messed up the Ripple effect from Thrumming Stone by thinning the deck of Shadowborn Apostle .

Secret Salvage is lovely, but the last I used it, let’s just say there were lots of issues. Maybe I give it another shot as I always thought of it as a second Thrumming Stone and that was an older build.

Rune-Scarred Demon was exchanged for Sidisi, Undead Vizier which was switched for Twilight Prophet . Ascend is easy to get and life gain is a lovely thing even if in small amounts.

Gray Merchant of Asphodel was removed only on the basis that it’s a one time shot with no real chance for recurrence in this build. Everyone will pay the 3 life to Athreos to prevent him from hitting again regardless of how much they already lost. Servitude and Salvage are also not warranted to use on him.

Hey I remember this from reddit! Very unique build. You might find room for Remembrance and Rally the Ancestors . Also Carnival of Souls can act as an extra Edgewalker, and Zur can find it.

Yes, over time Remembrance will get you a Shadowborn Apostle each time a Shadowborn Apostle goes to the graveyard.

It does the same thing that Secret Salvage does just slower but it’s a great back up.

KibaAlpha That's what I was missing. Secret Salvage is in my deck already. Does Remembrance let me grab every apostle out of my library?

In my opinion you should be running 30+ Shadowborn Apostle as well as have Secret Salvage and Remembrance .

Good luck and Happy Brewing.

Didn't mean to get on your case about the mana base - I've just seen people dump a lot of money into mana trying to "fix" underoptimized decks and it makes me cringe. Sorry if I came across as rude.

I found a few relevant cards you might've missed. In particular: Dichotomancy is an even bigger bomb than Eradicate , since it can steal all the creatures from an opponent's deck instead of exiling them. Mimeofacture is similar, but requires an investment of 4 mana per creature. Splinter is an Eradicate that requires an artifact creature. And Verdant Succession works like Remembrance for green creatures, except it brings stuff directly onto the battlefield.

Other (less powerful) options: Bazaar of Wonders , Eye of Singularity , Echoing Truth , Sever the Bloodline , Declaration in Stone , Retraced Image , Bubbling Cauldron , Pack Hunt , and Reflector Mage . If you have some way to copy Spy Kit , Biovisionary and Doubling Chant could also work.

In general, I think the biggest challenge you'll face is that effects synergizing with Spy Kit are kind of all over the place. There's board wipes, removal, staxxy control, creature tutoring... but not a lot of actual finishers. You've got to make room not only for precursors to Spy Kit (draw, ramp, tutors, etc.), but stuff that can win the game.

Maybe focus on one or two archetypes for the cards enabled by Spy Kit, then pick an unrelated win con? Or fill up on stealing/copying effects that can help set up Spy Kit combos but also be used offensively? I don't know... interesting dilemma.
