Shred Memory Discussion

Gattison Thanks for the suggestion!!! Bojuka Bog is definetly going in the deck!! I also found another great budget card, Shred Memory great for graveyard hate and getting a Exhume in your hand. As far as consistency I have an eldrazi out almost always by turn 4 thanks to all the mana generators and card draw , but if you're really lucky it can be done by turn 2 as long as you have a Insolent Neonate or Faithless Looting by turn 1, discard the Eldrazi and Exhume it. The weak point of the deck is that you're very vulnerable until you get the eldrazi out, and you're dropping at most one per turn so decks with many fast blockers can overrun you. Thankfully Ulamog's Crusher has Annihilator 2.

Cloud Key - 1/4th of your deck is artifacts. I think it costing 1 more and only helping your artifacts is much better in a cEDH meta than helping your opponents. You're helping yourself ramp by 1 but each opponent by 1 (1 to 3). I get it that your commander dies a lot and that sucks. But rather than putting in (IMO) a suboptimal card, why not just add in Command Beacon or Volrath's Stronghold to bypass commander tax?
Vampiric Link - I was unaware of that, didn't realize that. Despite possibly getting 2 for 1ed, your point is 100% true.
Thats true regarding Shred Memory , I just like the versatility but I failed to recognize the cantrip aspect.
Honestly rings alone is pretty powerful given it interacts with 1/5th of your deck, even without basalt monolith. Also you wouldn't need to add torment, just use the infinite mana and top to draw your deck, play aether, storm off with free artifacts and use bontu's monuments ability copied with rings for 20 damage each opponent. Use manifold key to do it again.
Oops, didn't realize read the bones was there. It's midnight here so mistakes are bound to be made.
Lastly, here are 3 suggestions (not entirely sold on all of them but just some ideas)....

Buried Ruin = been a consideration. I still plan on revisiting the land base and changing things there. It is 100% an option and probably will be in the final decklist.
Cloud Key = been thinking of this card but its hard to see the value in it as the deck currently stands. I get Helm of Awakening benefits opponents, however it can benefit us a ton aswell. Cloud key would be better if the deck had less of spread and focused more on creatures or artifacts or something. So for now, Helm does the trick. Also, when it comes to K'rrik, he will die a lot, another reason why helm helps out. It is for the spread of cards that I run(which is pretty much mostly a spread of everything with artifacts and sorceries topping.)
Vampiric Link is amazing. Oh god it overperforms. I'm assuming you don't know the ruling here. K'rrik has lifelink, and this basically gives him double life link... if he hits something for 8 damage, that is 8 life and another 8 life gained from this enchantment. Only 1 black(aka 2 life)...and it adds a counter to k'rrik making him even stronger! Overperforms...especially when you're low on life and need to regain life badly. There have even been times I've played it on Villis to hit someone and gain 8 life when im about to win but don't have k'rrik out or just need emergency life.
Shred Memory / Cremate = Cremate is mostly used as a cantrip(draw a card+do an effect). in this case, its more of a combo stopper...It can be used(for 2 life and no mana) and will stop someone from winning a game(mikaeus+triskelion combo) or anything that is in their graveyard really...Shred memory can exile from graveyards and do even more than just 1 card...but it costs 1 more mana, and doesn't draw a card. The bonus here would be for the transmute but I feel there is a good spread of tutors already...I may add one more tutor but not sure yet. Final Parting may come into play here...This decklist isn't final yet.
Rings of Brighthearth + Basalt Monolith = I swear I have considered this more than anything. In fact I have been play testing this a bit. Seems like it can be good. There are times its helpful but at the sametime, there are times I dont need mana...If this were to be added, I could totally see the benefits but I'd need more X spells such as Torment of Hailfire . The doubling effects on abilites of course is good. Doubling abilities is amazing for only 3 mana(depending on the ability) and infinte mana is never a bad thing. Needs more play testing to see if its better with it...or without. So far, I like it...but need more playtesting.
Not sure how much you looked into the deck but Read the Bones is already in the decklist. I appreciate your input. Reanimate is only in the deck since its been helpful in disrupting people/helping me. It can gain a ton of life with gary, or steal an opponent's combo creature before their turn. Or to destroy an opponents creature and take it from them. Also if someone tries to disrupt my carrion feeder combo(or really any creature based combo), I can get my creature back. I also have Emergence Zone as emergency flash to either win the game, or to stop someone from winning. I've used reanimate a couple times with it when an opponent waste's a bunch of mana to try and combo off, only for them to fail because i stole their combo piece...and then I win next turn. Mwhahahahaha!!!
Love the suggestions. Keep em coming. I do update this decklist once a week or so..just dont post what i changed.

Buried Ruin to get back aetherflux
What is the point of Vampiric Link ?
Bontu's Monument seems weak, you only have 8 creatures. Or do you just cast and recast commander for value? Even then, the cost reduction and lifegain seem very minimal.
Final Parting , while expensive, can put Villis in grave and reanimate in hand for a total of 6 mana, or with life. Might be worth considering.
Given you just dump your hand on the table, you might want to consider more draw, just incase you don't draw into it (ironic, huh). Read the Bones while more expensive than sign and whisper, can help set up your draws.
Thoughts on adding a ring package? Its also good to note that it helps you save life through your continuous draw spells by replacing it with mana instead. It synergizes with....
- Strip Mine
- 3x fetchlands
- Blast Zone
- Carrion Feeder
- Chainer, Dementia Master
- Erebos, God of the Dead
- Vilis, Broker of Blood
- Aetherflux Reservoir
- Bolas's Citadel
- Expedition Map
- Manifold Key
- Mind Stone
- Nihil Spellbomb
- Sensei's Divining Top
- Zuran Orb
- Arguel's Blood Fast
- Font of Agonies
If you were to add a Basalt Monolith , you could create infinite colorless mana. Then use top to draw your deck. Alternatively, you can also add Deserted Temple to go infinite with rings + temple + coffers + swamps to make infinite black mana

Well yeah you need at least three Muddle the Mixture and at least three Shred Memory . I stumbled across your page here looking up maybe a tier one Duskmantle/Mindcrank.. I run this deck already in real time and so far I have only gotten it up to 80% competitive. Making this a top tier isn't going to be easy and so far I am convinced it isn't ever going to happen. but yeah I own a 86% and in at least casual game play it is a really fun build

Since you're on Time Vault as a win-con I'd suggest playing the other 2 cmc transmute cards ( Shred Memory and Dimir Infiltrator ) since they find Time Vault if you need to win, and a couple of counter spells and removal spells if you need an answer. Also, Voltaic Servant is an untapper that can sometimes block, and is searchable with all your artifact tutors and your 2 cmc transmute cards.

Ooo almost creatureless! I would actually swap out Clever Impersonator for Proteus Staff . With Proteus Staff and no creatures in deck, you can target your general.. then your general comes right back BUT the staff lets you rearrange your library in an order of your choosing! Not only that, but recycling your general like this allows you to cast an additional spell from grave.
Also a heads up, you can't retrieve exiled cards with Mastermind's Acquisition (exiled cards are still considered "in the game"). It's essentially a Diabolic Tutor in EDH, unless your friends are cool with you having a sideboard.

Shred Memory could possibly replace Faithless Looting . Shreds guarantee that you'll get your Waste Not. Lootings reduce your hand size by 1 (they don't replace themselves) and tend to weaken your draw power with Dark Deals. They also mill you faster. Mid to late game, you can use Shreds to fetch Liliana's Caress . Seething Song might be an interesting alternative to Manaforge Cinder . It would still help with the red mana issue, while also creating more opportunity to cast Reforge the Soul in the early game.
