Retribution of the Ancients Discussion

I don't think Retribution of the Ancients is good enough to run just because of one card in your deck (Mikaeus, the Unhallowed). If he was your commander then that is a different sorry. It is a dead card without him. I would cut Ever After, not a lot for 6cmc.
I also would consider some Flash enablers so that you can keep mana up for counters, and bring back your commander before your upkeep everytime!
Could you check out my list at:

What about Zulaport Cutthroat?
Also the flayer seems too expensive for modern. You could just go monoblack, use some sack engines and any undying or persist type cards you can find. I like the Retribution of the Ancients btw.

Airdraken - I have thought of Pentavus. Didn't make the list the first time around, but could be something to test if I feel like something isn't as strong as I want it to be. Crop Rotation is just a card I forgot about, probably will find its way in here. Haven't had enough time to test Animation Module yet, so stay tuned. As for Ulvenwald Mysteries and any other card with the text "nontoken creature", I feel like I don't get enough value off of it. I feel like I sacrifice tokens too often to get enough value off of those cards to run them in the list. Mindless Automaton isn't bad per se, but I feel like this list has enough effects to keep the hand full or generate pseudo-card advantage. Crystalline Crawler could be a solid include to some lists, but I haven't really felt the need for further fixing. Eldrazi Monument is definitely a solid card, so maybe it's worth a slot. I'll have to see if I can fit it. Ordeal of Nylea feels too weak for me. I think there are other cards that are more significant that I would like to run before that. Attrition is a solid removal option, but I think I may try Retribution of the Ancients before Attrition. Swarmyard is a good add-in for later, but at the time I felt like the ~$10 could be better spent on other cards.

In place of another piece of removal, Retribution of the Ancients is an inexpensive way to always be holding up an answer in a deck like this. I'm also a fan of Inexorable Tide here for stuff like Fathom Mage.

Some budget suggestions:
draw: Deathreap Ritual
removal: Retribution of the Ancients

There isn't much need to run jank like Plague Belcher and crocodile. If you want to get rid of your own +1/+1 counters run Retribution of the Ancients It doubles as removal so you can kill off shitty 1 drops that way your opponent is more likely to Sac lands when you eventually get your Obliterator preying upon shit.
