Cathartic Reunion occurrence in decks from the last year

Cathartic Reunion Discussion

So, while Scaretiller would give us more grind potential I don't feel he's necessary. He's a 4 mana 1/4 that requires us to have lands in hand or lands in the graveyard. Sure, we have things Cathartic Reunion and Evolving Wilds but he provides no immediate value and short of adding in cards like Springleaf Drum and vehicle cards we're going to need to attack to get value.
Already have Angelic Renewal in the deck; the 4 mana reanimation spells were a consideration but I didn't feel they warranted a spot due only having 3 creatures that cost more than 4 mana. Sure, we can cheat commander tax and sneak out a Crusher or get a cool etb that gives us monarch or gets back a combo piece - but it'd come at the cost of speed. Pedh decks already struggle enough to keep up with normal decks.
I do like the cycle on Marshaling Cry I may try it out in place of rally
The enchantments that return themselves could also be usful - definitely risky but I do like sudo-card advantage
The mana filter is an idea but definitely makes the combo have even more moving parts. I don't see it providing much value outside of the combo but I suppose that would require some play testing to truly determine.
Lastly, we already have Impact Tremors in the deck. I appreciate the suggestions and the compliments though. I have a feeling this deck will scale up.

I haven't seen many of the new cards, but Galazeth Prismari seems pretty good. You don't have any other artifacts however, so I feel like that slot might be better served with another spell. Maybe Cathartic Reunion to fill the graveyard up a bit more ?

This deck is a really cool concept, but i feel like it might more efficient as a reanimator deck. Like you can get him into the graveyard with tutors Buried Alive Gravebreaker Lamia Entomb , or just by drawing and discarding aggressively with Cathartic Reunion , Chart a Course , Faithless Looting etc. Then once you got him in your graveyard you can just Bond of Revival , Body Double , Dread Return , Exhume , Victimize . cause as of now he costs 8 mana and only one other card is gonna be able to cascade into him so either 8 mana or 10 mana which is a lot of mana right. in terms of the fling plan thats awesome, you can even replace a land with Kazuul's Fury Flip, and even add Chandra's Ignition for that fiery finish too

Nice catch with your combo's, my version is just general good stuff on a budget An Elephant Never Forgets.
Also I noticed you have 2 Cathartic Reunion by the way

Eh. I'm not too impressed power wise but I think it's a step in the right direction. The best thing to me has to be the Cathartic Reunion that doesn't come at an additional cost and the hate bear that doubles as a silence.
Most of the other things are just spirit tribal support and a Narset elder dragon which I think are neat but they're not pushing the envelope like they did with winota but there are still some spoilers left so we'll see how this pans out.

TheWanderinGPlaneswalker Thanks for such a detailed description, really appreciate you taking the time to explain everything so thoroughly. Now that I have a better idea of how Illusionist's Bracers , Mox Tantalite , and Lotus Bloom work with Osgir, the Reconstructor , I'll definitely be making some changes to my list in the near future. For now though, this is what I have... Full Metal Alchemy
I also forgot to mention in my original comment that all of reds impulsive card draw/ looting spells synergize really well with Osgir, the Reconstructor . Gamble / Thrill of Possibility / Cathartic Reunion / Faithless Looting / Tormenting Voice / Daretti, Scrap Savant Are just a few that work well to fill the graveyard with artifacts that want to be doubled up later, while at the same time drawing further into the deck.
Thanks again, Cheers!

So depending on the weaknesses / inconsistencies you're seeing in your play, you may just want to add Goldspan Dragon in favor of Lathliss, Dragon Queen - ramp on a Dragon is so, so good. That's mainly the reason Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge is still in the build - the early blocker is nice, but with all the targeted removal we pack from Terror of the Peaks , Scourge of Valkas , Dragon Tempest , etc., Gadrak opens up some solid instant-speed plays or future ramp.
In discussing this more, I do wonder if Feldon of the Third Path can be swapped out. Six mana for one revive is steep, and as I said, the ETB/LTB selection is limited. At a 28-30 creature count, he might make more sense, but that might be my cut candidate for Goldspan Dragon ...
Hellkite Tyrant is delightful and will probably always included for me. It's one of those effects that can just change the game in a heartbeat in my opinion.
I'm going to try and find room for Tibalt's Trickery as well - the red counter spell probably wants to find it way in here.
Have you considered Seize the Spoils ? At 3 CMC it might be a bit slow, and may be too cute, maybe not as strong as Cathartic Reunion , or maybe we just up the CMC for Pirate's Pillage , but it does everything Bladewing wants, so I can't help but consider it.
All of this is making me wonder about finding more powerful inclusions than Darretti, Scrap Savant and Solemn Simulacrum - the flexibility is so nice at 4 CMC, but I do think the power level can bump up (without breaking the bank for Mana Crypt , Wheel of Fortune , Demonic Tutor , or Vampiric Tutor ). Have any inclusions in particular been all-stars for you?
I'll also put that question to our other Bladewing friends: Fuzzlewuzzle, That_Salty_Gamr, and - have you guys any pet cards or utility/tech cards that feel like they consistently over-achieve in your Bladewing decks?

MeanLizard thanks for sharing your list! I'd love to talk out where I see variance in our design!
You're only playing Dragons (and Anger , always Anger )! I really like your low creature count and how it opens up space for instants and enchantments. I'm seeing our differences in playstyle come from this section. Also, we both REALLY need to add Goldspan Dragon ...a lot.
Lathliss, Dragon Queen consistently underwhelmed for me. I hope you haven't found that to be the case!
Please let me pitch you on swapping Hellkite Tyrant for a utility creature like Dockside Extortionist ! I always found Tyrant to be a win-more card and I consistently feel like this deck doesn't need to win-more, it needs to sustain and accelerate.
Where you have Tormenting Voice , I run Azra Oddsmaker . For Wild Guess , I run Chainer, Nightmare Adept . Your Cathartic Reunion swaps in for my Daretti, Scrap Savant . Your Molten Echoes mirrors my Feldon of the Third Path .
How have you felt about your gameplay? You've streamlined this strategy to the Nth degree with heavier draw and reanimation packages - I can imagine this being SO quick and potentially a bit more prone to getting squashed by graveyard hate. Maybe not because of how much card draw you're doing?
Take out Final Parting for Mausoleum Secrets and enjoy! Also, how can we find space for Underworld Breach here?! You're leaning into flashback and threshold a bit more than I do, I'd LOVE to see these inclusions!
I have some other questions and thoughts, but that feels like plenty to start with!
