Retributive Wand Discussion

Topic on: Retributive Wand I have 3 paper decks surrounding retributive wand as a combo piece, 2 are on tapped out, one is in the works right now to make tokens of the wand due to tokens actually enter the graveyard rule. I have about 6 decks on mtga that use it. All of them have 4 ofs except the mtga ones so if I have Karn in my hand I can pull it from the side board. When some one sees it for the first time they go hu? That's weird and think ur gunna do some untapping play but the sacking effect is the real winner of the card.
So if you are only running only one other card to put it into the graveyard to then return it later, I don't see why use it when it's crazy as is when you surround a whole deck on sacking artifacts for damage. Im also not so we'll informed on this deck as well, I've never seen it before. What have you experienced running the wand is my question for you?

Maybe a little less agressive and more value artifacts? with Ramp like Powerstone Shard and maybe even Manifold Key . Something like Jhoira's Familiar or Artificer's Assistant . Then a funny payoff like Mishra's Self-Replicator or Retributive Wand (with all the untaping). Sage of Lat-Nam for carddraw (and killing your own wand).

UPDATE, Ichor Wellspring is back in and Swiftfoot Boots are out, 4 Sylvan Scrying , 4 Blast Zone , 4 Forest have been put in to pick the Scuttling Doom Engine and Retributive Wand as the win con. Mystic Forge is out Mirrorworks and Pierce Strider is out for them to be put into a version of "urza's ETB"
