There is a Pod version of this deck focusing on trying to fill up your graveyard to use Neoform, Eldritch Evolution, Fiend Artisan and Birthing Pod to sac your creatures (especially Tasigur) for spicy tutors. This build would need far more creatures and a lot less spells and might not be cEDH power level.

Creatures: Devoted Druid, Scavenging Ooze, Collector Ouphe, Bloom Tender, Destiny Spinner, Fiend Artisan, Bone Shredder, Manglehorn, Opposition Agent, Yisan, Wanderer Bard, Oakhame Adversary, Tendershoot Dryad, Phyrexian Delver.

7 mana payoffs for sacrificing Tasigur: Hullbreaker Horror, Nyxbloom Ancient, Protean Hulk 8 mana payoffs for sacrificing Tasigur: Tidespout Tyrant, Razaketh, the Foulblooded

Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

A good trick for getting more punch out of Gyrus is to run guys who have more power than their printed stats might indicate. For instance, Arcbound Overseer has 0 power when he's in the graveyard, but as soon as you return him, he's attacking for 6! Other examples include Clockwork Dragon, Drakestown Forgotten, Nighthowler, Sewer Nemesis, Thought Gorger, Ignition Team, Crovax the Cursed, Spike Hatcher, Naya Soulbeast and Workhorse. Your opponents will be surprised how often "2 or less" won't feel like it!

Other cards that fit your general strategy include Grenzo, Dungeon Warden and Unearth, which can return a lot of the same cards as Gyrus. You might also want more removal, such as Bone Shredder, Ravenous Baboons and Garza's Assassin. Good luck!

Wake the Dead and Rally the Ancestors can also be really nice finishers for aristocrat decks, letting you get a large number of sacrifice targets out of nowhere to close out games. I really like your list though; I like Generator Servant quite a bit in mine but my list is more aggro so maybe not quite as good for this playstyle. Bone Shredder is pretty dependent on the matchup but can do a ton of work and has a built in sac outlet.

That seems like a good trade out. I agree Thoughtpicker Witch is a hard one to use if your low on mana and creatures to kill off. she has come in handy a few times but i can see Bone Shredder 's use as well. I will order the card and test it out. thanks for the ideas.

A little on the janky side, and you would get blown out by a sweeper, but Kormus Bell lets you drastically increase the number of saccables you have, plus gets pretty fun with Urborg out. Thoughtpicker Witch isn't that good in my experience unless you can go infinite or you have a lot of mana to dump into it. Maybe cut her for Bone Shredder from the sideboard

If you want to remove the 50/50 of getting Hulk with the Shapeshifter, you could swap Ravenous Chupacabra for Nekrataal , Banewhip Punisher or Bone Shredder , since it doesn't look like you're running Massacre Girl mainboard. Alternatively, Meteor Golem , naming golem could work out.

Beautiful list, big +1 from me!
