Resourceful Return Discussion

I like what your deck is trying to do, but I would make several changes. First, replace Drownyard Temple and Westvale Abbey Flip with colored sources. Then replace Matter Reshaper with Filigree Familiar. You essentially have a four color manabase right now, and Matter Reshaper isn't worth a fourth color. With only 24 lands, opening hands with Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim with only 2 lands with one of them colorless is really awkward. Consider more Scrapheaps in the two drop slot to make full use of Resourceful Return. I recommend Restoration Gearsmith in the main to get a creature from the yard, since you are going with the sac theme. In most cases, Bone Splinters is great but in this format bone splitters is bad because you don't have a way to deal with Heart of Kiran. Altar's Reap, or Ob Nixilis Reignited are also opinions, although the later can't deal with vehicles either. I feel like this deck is missing something like Satyr Wayfinder to tie it together.
Hope this helps!
I came because I saw you post above mine in the standard thread. I also need help on my deck Value Town, and would appreciate your assistance.

The Crow of Dark Tidings can go as you have no cards in that deck that benefit from either Delirium. You have only one means of Waste mana production, so n there is no need for Drownyard Temple or Kozilek's Shrieker. Same applies to Foreboding Ruins and Choked Estuary. Without any other means of getting energy counters, having Aether Poisoner in the deck wouldn't be necessary. I see some synergy with Vampire Noble, Indulgent Aristocrat and Carrier Thrall. You could sacrifice the Carrier Thralls to pump Vampire Noble from the ability of Indulgent Aristocrat. Equip two of the Vampire Nobles with Haunted Cloak, and it can be quite lethal to the unsuspecting. If you want to that route, you may want to acquire Gifted Aetherborn, which has deathtouch, lifelink, and would benefit from the pump from Indulgent Aristocrat. This also opens up your deck to keep your zombie producer's like Shamble Back and your creature recursion spells like Resourceful Return. You can trim the number of Swamp to 24.

I was also going to suggest Pia's Revolution, but I also like Scrap Trawler for you since he returns artifacts that are already in gy, especially ballistas. I'd recommend a pair of Revolutions in place of Resourceful Return.

Gotta love a good tribal deck! Here are my suggestions:
Aetherborn Marauder is a trap. Putting all your eggs in one basket that doesn't even have haste is just too risky.
Contraband Kingpin is a good card, but not worth splitting into a second color.
Cultivator's Caravan isn't good in a mono-color deck. (You can also save some money by swapping Spire of Industry for more basic Swamps; I'm just going to assume you'd make this change and not include it in the card tally below.)
Hope of Ghirapur is a good card but I don't really see it for this deck. If you really want to include it, leave it in the sideboard.
Ornithopter doesn't do enough for this deck. You really want to avoid sac'ing cards to Yahenni and Syndicate Trafficer. Stick to tokens whenever possible.
Resourceful Return: Cut at least 2 of them. It's a good lategame refill so I'm not gonna tell you to cut it entirely, but you really don't want to end up with multiples in hand.
That gives us back 17 cards. Now let's put them to use.
3x Animation Module not only helps make your dudes bigger but it's also a reliable source of sac'able Servo tokens.
1x Gifted Aetherborn and 2x Syndicate Trafficker. Gifted Aetherborn is a pushed-as-hell card and it's exactly the kind of efficient card that you need filling your hand. Syndicate Trafficker, meanwhile, is one of the best reasons to go Aetherborn and one of your only sacrifice outlets. The more you have in your deck, the more resilient and annoying the deck will be.
Gonti, Lord of Luxury: Potentially good against either Control decks or stompy decks. Stealing a counterspell could be just what this deck needs to go over the top, plus casting counterspells or direct-damage spells while in Mono-Black is just hilarious. He could actually be good enough for the main deck, but he competes with Midnight Entourage for the 4-drop slot.
Harsh Scrutiny: I'm kinda in love with this spell. Helps you ruin your opponent's board presence while fixing your own hand and giving you information about how much disruption you have coming your way.
Lost Legacy: for fighting against Combo decks.
Underhanded Designs: for grindy matchups.
Murder: when you absolutely, positively, definitely need to kill big things.

I think Syndicate Trafficker instead of Resourceful Return may help as an additional sacrifice outlet and dealing extra damage early. No one wants to block a creature that has potential indestructibility with Ornithopters. you have decent enough draw with the other artifacts.

irishmoosetard I replaced Yahenni with Mimic but couldn't do more than two of them as a nod to the budget restrictions of the deck. I think $20 is still fair for how fun this is to play. But a playset would really help, especially with Resourceful Return. Good suggestion though for sure.

@akokolari97 yea Restoration Specialist is very good at keeping your Hidden Stockpile in the game, the reason I took it out/sideboard was because if they were not running heavy green or white enchantment removal then you'd only be returning a artifact most of the time.
@willwrdn I think I'll look into Resourceful Return. The extra card draw helps me speed up my game.
as for Liliana, the Last Hope I have her for a zombie edh tribal, she is really good, especially getting her ult off, even in a non-zombie deck. when I've played her in standard she tends to draw all the attention so her ult doesn't make it usually. I'll keep an eye on her, even though she does not make tokens that synergize with the deck, she can be a great meat shield.
