Looking for a combo piece

Modern forum

I'm looking for a way to endlessly loop Universal Automaton . Came across the idea while brewing modern goblins and noticed between Frogtosser Banneret , Skirk Prospector , Pashalik Mons , Goblin Matron etc. there might be a way to do this without running too many cards that aren't already ok in the archetype.

Long story short I'm after cards that allow me to cast Universal Automaton from the grave as many times as i want on the same turn (e.g. Haakon, Stromgald Scourge , Liliana, Untouched By Death ). The thing is they could be for any creature type, for creatures or artifacts and in virtually any color.

There are a bunch of directions i could go with this so I don't have a list yet. I really only just need the "cast from the grave piece". thx in advance :)

Only found Pia's Revolution that would kinda do what you want, as putting the card into your hand is basically putiing it on the battlefield due to the cost reduction

Yeah forgot that Enduring Renewal was a thing. Here's my list so far Enduring Goblins if anyone's interested. Goblin Arsonist was in the first deck I ever built so the fact that I might be playing him in modern makes me extremely happy. Thanks again for the help guys.

This is VERY convoluted but I believe this works.

Arcane Adaptation and choose goblin

Ashnod's Altar + Junk Diver + Myr Retriever

Scrap Trawler

Your mana reducer makes them all cost less because they’re all goblins.

Sac the Myr Retriever for from the altar. Then sac your changelling and then the Junk Diver - the order is important. When Junk diver dies it will trigger its own ability and the Scrap Trawler ability letting you return both other artifacts to your hand. At this point you’ll have floating from the altar. Cast the retriever, cast the changeling for free, sac the retriever to return junk diver and repeat in a loop. With all the death and etb triggers you want.

I don't have any suggestions at this point, but had a couple questions about your goals for the deck. 1. Are there any particular colors you are wanting to play/stay away from? 2. Is card availability an issue? 3. Is there a general playstyle you are going for? 4. Are you mainly looking for speed or consistency?
