Resourceful Return Discussion

babushkasara on Sorry, Did you want those creatures?

I've never played a Sheoldred deck, but I do have a Horobi, Death's Wail deck (Horobi Jankness) and might be able to suggest some general mono-black good cards.

Cards I'd consider adding:

  • Xenic Poltergeist - Ok, this is so good for this deck. Hear me out. The artifact becomes a creature until your next turn. So it'll be an artifact on your opponent's upkeep which is when they conveniently have to sacrifice a creature. Super useful if you've already wiped their board but there's some problematic artifacts floating around, which in EDH, there always are.
  • Mortuary Mire - useful for when Sheoldred isn't out or to retrieve an extra creature
  • Draw power! Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Night's Whisper, Cremate, Harvester of Souls, Resourceful Return.
  • Vona's Hunger - helps get around indestructible or hexproof
  • Black Market - for even more mana
  • Scour from Existence - more non-creature removal, something black struggles with
  • Solemn Simulacrum - really good ramp, especially when you have as much recursion as you do
  • Kokusho, the Evening Star - another good target for killing and recurring and killing again.
  • Hell's Caretaker - I'm not quite sure how the abilities/triggers stack, but I'm pretty sure you could sac something to this to bring something back and then bring back the sacrificed creature with Sheoldred all in the same upkeep.

Cards I'd remove:

  • Annihilate - for 5 mana, yeah it can't be regenerated and yeah you get to draw a card, but gosh that's expensive. Is regeneration enough of a problem in your meta that Doom Blade doesn't suffice?
  • Commander's Sphere - sure it draws a card but a mono-colored deck doesn't really need 'mana of any color'. There's surely other rocks that are better. Hedron Archive comes to mind.
  • Leyline of the Void - seems extremely counterproductive to what your deck and your commander want to do

Jaruun Yes I ran 3 Authority of the Consuls A few of the issues that came up. Was when their creatures either had double strike or they just exiled my enchantments/artifacts as I put them out. I often found myself needing to block with my creatures just to survive till turn 6, while hoping for a Dusk. The creatures I found to be most useful were Kalastria Healer and Cliffhaven Vampire. I think a better drain option is to switch out Ondu War Cleric and Zulaport Cutthroat for something like Chaplain's Blessing, Dazzling Reflection, Expedition Envoy or Battle at the Bridge. I will trade out Live Fast for Resourceful Return or Renewed Faith.

What I might try and go for is getting 1-2 Cliffhaven Vampire out then using instant spells to trigger drain. I know Live Fast was a way to get energy for Aether Hub but I added a couple Evolving Wilds to get plains if I need them. I also added two Sunscorched Desert.

i know this has already been mentioned before, but if you can swing it, you should really consider adding (AT LEAST) the following cards:

2x Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet
3x Drana, Liberator of Malakir
2x Yahenni, Undying Partisan
3x Asylum Visitor
4x Grasp of Darkness
3x Transgress the Mind

though i like Voldaren Pariah  Flip for flavor, i'm not really convinced that it's worth it. she's a 3/3 for that requires sacrificing THREE creatures to do anything even halfway decent...maybe you can squeeze her in as a one-of? as an alternative win-con? iunno

in terms of which cards to remove, i would prob do:

-4x Nightmare
-4x Vampire Noble
-2x Stromkirk Mentor
-4x Resourceful Return
-4x Carrier Thrall

Nightmare isn't synergistic enough for including ANY really, let alone x4; Vampire Noble = just plain awful; Stromkirk Mentor is OKAY, but Kalitas is MUCH better; Resourceful Return is meh, especially with only 2x artifacts in the entire deck;

& maybe the hardest cut overall, Carrier Thrall--i understand the synergy with Indulgent Aristocrat, i do, but your curve is wayyyyyyyyy maxed on in the 2-drop, so you really need to cut something clogging up that spot. for creatures to sacrifice in-game, you'd still have:

4x Vampire Noble
2x Stromkirk Mentor (who have already served at least half of its purpose w/ the ETB trigger)
3x Asylum Visitor (if necessary)




$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$i know my suggestions might break the bank a bit, but Amonkhet coming out soon, prices on a lot of cards are dropping pretty significantly. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet & Drana, Liberator of Malakir are still pretty expensive (around $50 for all five), BUT yahenni is only 1$, visitor is only $.60, & grasp/transgress fluctuate between $1 to $2.

SORRY FOR THE NOVEL / HOPE THIS HELPS !!

Okay, I already took out Coat of Arms for Resourceful Return so I guess I'll remove Grafted Exoskeleton for Ashnod's Altar.

Have you considered Glassblower's Puzzleknot over Resourceful Return? A sideboard might also be worth working on.

I'm still learning about the standard meta, but I wonder if Mind Rot is left out b/c it's not as strong as the others? ie. 3 CMC and opponent chooses? I think I'd be tempted to ditch Whispers of Emrakul and not worry about delirium. In some ways, I actually find value in seeing what an opponent chooses to discard (especially if it's in RL and they don't have a poker face). But maybe it messes with your ideal curve?

It also made me think a deck with some combo of this might be cool, but I've no idea atm what it would replace...

Also looked at these two .. tho don't think they quite beat out others you have
