+1 from me! Nice build! I'm assembling these partners as well

I forgot about Psychosis Crawler. High potential for dmg there. Smothering Tithe I need more of. Never seen Memory Jar before. Same with Trained Pronghorn, neat.

Geth's Grimoire only has 4(?) cards in your deck that makes an opponent discard. Seems rowdy but situational.

What do you think about Frantic Search, Thrill of Possibility, Cathartic Reunion, etc? I see you're going with a gang of looting weenies. I had no idea there were so many! Haha

I hope you'll take a sec to check my deck! Have fun!

I really, REALLY love this deck. You've done something awesome here. Every card evokes that teenage metal head comic book prog rock cartridge video game kinda feel you know? You've got me really wanting to try something similar with white though I'm not sure it would scale to a modern game of commander quite as well. Great work!

Here are some cards I think could be cool:

Mana Vault Greed Memory Jar Infernal Contract Ancient Tomb Chainer, Dementia Master Grim Monolith Terrain Generator Scroll Rack And I'm always happy when I have Strip Mine

Mostly I think the deck needs some more ways to keep it's hand full but beyond that it looks really solid over all.

Both Manabond and Memory Jar have "at the beginning of the end" triggers. Since you control both of these triggers, you can order them as you please. So, you can order them so that the Manabond trigger resolves first and then the Memory Jar trigger. Note, is you controlled the ability from memory the delayed trigger that it creates for your end step is also controlled by you.

The cleanup step doesn't happen until after the End Step is done. Remember that the last phase of a turn is the End Phase which consists of the End Step and the Cleanup Step.

I play a Memory Jar or Magus of the Jar set my hand aside with a Manabond in play.

I activate the ability and I draw my new 7. In this new hand it has some amount of lands. Lets say 3.

When I end the turn what exactly happens?

Do I have an opportunity to place those 3 lands into play with the Manabond ?

or

Does the Memory Jar / Magus of the Jar ability take precedent over the clean up / discard step and I'll end up discarding those lands regardless.

Life from the Loam would be great in this.

I also think that Memory Jar and Reforge the Soul would fit nicely.

Also, is Platinum Angel not cool anymore? I never see her on decklists. We should bring her back.
