Street Wraith Discussion

The key benefit of Faithless Looting is to be able to get a Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker or Karmic Guide or Restoration Angel out of your hand into the graveyard. Whenever I draw one of these guys in my hand, it makes my life miserable. I can't Buried Alive them, so Faithless Looting for CMC1 puts them into my graveyard where I can then Reanimate CMC1 . The other benefits, like cycling cards if you don't have an A/D/D with a Kaalia of the Vast is just an additional benefit, or helps with finding a mana so less T3 land drops missed, etc.
Mishra's Bauble , the reason Mishra's Bauble doesn't work properly, is that drawn on T5, for 2 Life, Street Wraith replaces itself (immediately), whereas, a T5 Mishra's Bauble I do nothing T5 and then get 2 cards on T6 which is probably too late because 2 other players went infinite on T5 themselves. Urza's Bauble is similar to Mishra's Bauble if you prefer that effect.

Great discussion. Thanks!
Mausoleum Secrets usually just pulls me Reanimate . So far I've only had it once and not been able to tutor with it, so it does happen. It's still in testing, so far it's been ok. Without a sac outlet hard to guarantee a creature in the graveyard that early, honestly though, probably won't end up staying in the deck.
Entomb doesn't have much synergy outside of Mausoleum Secrets , so yes would just be building around the Combat Celebrant its definitely not the way to go, as he's still a little slow. I figured he also helps when I have Restoration Angel in my hand, Buried Alive the Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Karmic Guide + Combat Celebrant . If Karmic Guide or Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker in my hand he doesn't work, only replaces Restoration Angel .
Simian Spirit Guide isn't quite as good as Street Wraith , he draws a card, where Simian Spirit Guide although good with Mausoleum Secrets , the isn't highly useful, doesn't draw a card so it's really just a mana. On Turn 5 probably a dead draw, unless a 2/2 is impactful for CMC3, like having a Diabolic Intent or something of that nature, Dark Ritual the is a bit more useful, but same issue, can be a dead draw later. T1 to T3 it's probably still good. Both of these increase the odds of a T1 win, but I always think they are too detrimental later like T4-T6.

Prolly not Predict. I remember the predict combo tho:
It is pretty simple.
The line is draw+cast+activate Grenzo, then flip priest, get 3, use 2 for activation, hit Kiki, copy, priest, have 4, activate again, hit sledder, then sacrifice sledder to itself targeting Grenzo, so it is a 3/3, activate again, hit Conscripts, untap Kiki, go infinite, swing, win.

I see we have some recent changes. Could you briefly talk about Reap ? Is it really that good of a card?
We have Regrowth now as well, and I see that Mox Amber and Rashmi, Eternities Crafter has been cut as well. I definitely understand the Rashmi cut, but I've found Mox Amber to be pretty reliable. Is it too inconsistent?
Love the deck, I've been playing it a ton in my own local cEDH meta.

I completely agree, The importance of automatic card draw is key to any game, drawing through your deck for those win cons. You have an interesting build; I wanted to try it out, So I was putting it together and The only 2 card I didn't have on hand was Doom Whisperer . Which is why I mentioned Indulgent Tormentor , I felt it was the only next similar card despite its drawbacks(uncertainty/randomness) and Grim Tutor which I replaced with Diabolic Tutor and threw in an Ancient Tomb to make up for that extra CMC cost it adds. I'm considering taking out Diabolic Tutor and adding in Gamble instead. Still unsure if I'd like to gamble with my hand.
The other difference I made was adding Mox Diamond in place of Fellwar Stone . Is having your lands more important, Would it be crucial to discard one? I feel Fellwar Stone is situational, well not situational I guess more of a sideboard card along with Mox Diamond . They Can both be sideboard cards, They can both easily be added in before the game if you're knowing who you're up against.
Another consideration I'm thinking was Mishra's Bauble . You mentioned why play 99 commander when you can play 98. Well why play 98 when you can play 97? I know Street Wraith Synergizes with Mausoleum Secrets and Mishra's Bauble doesn't really have any synergy but It gets you that card draw for 0. You can sync it with a tutor such as Vampiric Tutor or Imperial Seal . What are your thoughts about that? I appreciate the reply by the way, very detailed and the explanations you give for your reasons, puts it all into perspective.

Interesting build, Izzet Charm does seem fun here! Any reason for not running Street Wraith though? I feel like it's the best cycling creature in this type of deck because it requires no mana investment (and it means you essentially play a 56 card deck!). I also wonder if 12 creatures is enough to reliably cast living end and bring back more than 2 threats. I could be wrong though, have you tested this much?

4x Experimental Frenzy is probably a bit much, as you're only running 19 lands. I'd consider dropping to 2 or 3 and adding in another Temur Battle Rage or Street Wraith . Otherwise, this is a pretty sweet deck! Goblins are rushing to low life anyways, why not throw in Death's Shadow ?
