Some of the low cost graveyard recursion cards like Scrap Trawler, Junk Diver, Myr Retriever, and Workshop Assistant can help keep you going late game when someone removes your combo pieces / best creatures.

Nettlecyst is a great new card that gives you another big body for cheap, definitely better than Pennon Blade, or great along side it.

Awesome deck, love the flavor. I am a red player at heart so I love to see an interesting build. Here are some initial thoughts I have on improvement.

1.Hedron Archive for Ur-Golem's Eye: no reason not to have the attached card advantage

2.Light Up the Stage for Faithless Looting: being a long time red player I have found that Faithless is way overrated. It is nice to rummage a little but there is actually negative card advantage, can't even count as a cantrip. For the same cost Light Up nets two cards and fits with the damage theme!

3.Buried Ruin for Cathedral of War: the +1/+1 seems lackluster overall, especially when Buried Ruin can pull back out a key artifact piece.

4.Why Junk Diver over Myr Retriever? The flying doesn't seem worth the extra mana

5.Terror of the Peaks for Warstorm Surge: better mana cost, you are low on creatures, it can land some big hits!

6.Neheb, the Eternal for Geosurge: I think Neheb would be an absolute powerhouse for this deck. With your untap abilities, Kamahl's haste, and your damage doublers; creating an unprecedented amount of mana in you postcombat mainphase should be a cinch.

Right off the bat you can cut 2 lands, possibly more after play testing. But 39 is entirely too many.

The white counters are usually not worth it. So Dawn Charm , Lapse of Certainty , and Mana Tithe are another three easy cuts IMO.

Esper Sentinel probably doesn't do enough without ways to pump his power.

You don't really want your artifacts in hand, so Junk Diver and Scrap Trawler could probably be cut.

Meteor Golem is expensive to cast and doesn't seem like something you would want to reanimate with all of the other targets.

Boros Charm usually doesn't do enough in Commander.

Endless Atlas doesn't seem like it would be turned on enough of the time to be worth it.

Illusionist's Bracers is a straight upgrade to Battlemage's Bracers .

Sharuum the Hegemon + Nim Deathmantle + Ashnod's Altar

Yes I can see this working but maybe with a Sculpting Steel or Copy Artifact , coupled with Cathodion and a Su-Chi (expensive) with a Junk Diver and a Scrap Trawler ?

However, with Metalwork Colossus because when the Monkey Cage enters and with Ashnod's Altar that is a total of 8 mana, then add in Nim Deathmantle Metalwork Colossus can be retuned to hand and cast for free, creating 11 Apes when sacking the Monkey Cage .

Think we are on to something here.

in order of your thoughts/questions:

  1. Lotus Petal

utilizing the Scrap Trawler loop i.e. Junk Diver + Myr Retriever and a sac outlet, you sacrifice the petal, it hits the yard, sacrifice either Myr Retriever or Junk Diver , Scrap Trawler ability on the stack target the Petal resolve the retriever ability targeting whatever . Then you play the petal, sac the petal, sac the Junk Diver / Myr Retriever , with the abilities on the stack target petal with the trawler ability and then myr/diver with the common ability shared between them(i.e. diver can target retriever/retriever can target diver). You will achieve infinite colored mana in this manner

  1. We seem to share a philosophy in deck building, good to make common and relatable grounds with you. I respect you assessment and will keep an open mind to it, ill make sure to keep in touch about when i finally have the freedom to play.

  2. What is it you're specifically referencing? I like Unearth because it hits all key creatures in the deck for one mana and unlike reanimate doesn't cost me life to do so.

  3. where as i would agree with you in every case but this, i find that this correction will be made if or when i find that i can reliably trigger morbid consistently because yes, -13/-13 is great for 1cmc, however if I cannot trigger morbid it's 1cmc for -1/-1 where as i'd rather pay 2cmc for -4/-4. that being said I otherwise agree with you that Tragic Slip is a better option over Grasp of Darkness but until I can games in ill stick with the limit. (the sweet spot most people don't realize of most creatures is in fact 4)

  4. Massacre Wurm is a love of mine however Noxious Gearhulk currently holds this slot. We could surely discuss the swap between the two, however Gearhulk has more direct synergy with the build. Both accomplish something similar and different at the same time

- Trading Post for + Junk Diver

Why: Scrap Trawler loop enabled with Myr Retriever and Junk Diver , also lowers curve overall and better overall synergy, potential win with Zulaport Cutthroat or Syr Konrad, the Grim , good looks Omniscience_is_life

- Go for the Throat for + Liliana's Triumph

Why: Profet93 you are correct, much better value

- Cabal Stronghold for + Vesuva

Why: Thespian's Stage would end up tapped at the cost of 2mana compared to Vesuva just coming in tapped for the same ability. Minuscule advantage but it's there

- Swamp for + Prismatic Vista

Why: you right Profet93

- Mind Slash for + Imp's Mischief

Why: mindslash isn't as efficient as id like to think it is, puts opponents creatures back in their graveyard (theoretically) and that works against Living Death

- Hedron Archive for + Sensei's Divining Top

Why: Profet93, you clearly point out the why, there is no contention with your logic and rational

- Dreamstone Hedron for + Lotus Petal

Why: Cuts curve, synergy with the trawler line, can easily produce more mana then any other rock in the deck. (potentially infinite???)

Profet93 Metalworker is just a really good way to ramp, acts as a rock for explosiveness. there are 21 total artifacts in the deck, so just above 20% of the deck feeds him, which is also why I included Vault of Whispers unless you think Darksteel Citadel would serve better in this slot

Diabolic Intent was incorrectly labeled but is absolutely in the deck. Im a fan of all the other tutors you've mentioned, Grim Tutor originally was in the deck and but can't seem to find a space for it currently. the other tutors are however to constrained in their limitations. Generally speaking instant gratification is what i look for in tutors.

Junk Diver is something I actually overlooked, thank you for the suggestion as well as the fact that it can go infinite potentially I believe with Scrap Trawler and Myr Retriever

thank you again for the suggestions, that being said what are the potential cuts for both Junk Diver and Grim Tutor? Considering that Scrap Trawler is a much better recursion piece in the deck over Trading Post despite trawlers limitation, that is potentially overcome by the replacing T.Post with Junk Diver. Thoughts?

Beseech the Queen , Diabolic Intent , Grim Tutor , and Cruel Tutor can all get you that sweet, sweet Memory Jar . Junk Diver can function as a second myr retriver, too (but it FLIES).
