Pattern of Rebirth Discussion

Nice list, I'm also a cEDH Saffi player who really enjoys the deck.
Also wanted to provide a comment on your primer. Not sure if I'm missing something here, but the Pattern of Rebirth combo with only Saffi on the battlefield can be accomplished with a few less steps without Felidar Guardian. You can just tutor up Reveillark after Karmic guide and accomplish the same loop by returning Saffi & Guide with Reveillark.
I suppose this only really matters if Felidar Guardian is exiled for some reason. The Felidar only line is nice that it combos through a cursed totem :).

I really like this take on elfball. It looks like it has a lot of avenues of play, which I have a mono-green elfball deck, and a lot of the time that's the downside. Like, sometimes it feels like I'm just waiting on the right card rather than being proactive with what's on the board, and that seems like a way that this deck really shines. Here are a couple things I can think of from my green deck and from a little bit of experience I have in modern golgari.
Vivien, Champion of the Wilds Emergence Zone and/or Yeva, Nature's Herald can give your creatures flash, which is always nice, but I'd expect it to play very well with deathtouch. Just the threat of flashing things in when you are a creature deck can keep your opponents from attacking.
Eternal Witness and Den Protector are great for recurring things that got removed. Survivors' Bond is great with them too. It can get back and elf plus witness who can then get something else back or wait in hand.
Pattern of Rebirth is a viscous card if they don't have enchantment removal. A lot of the time it basically makes a creature unblockable or makes everyone at the table stop attacking into you.
Kenrith's Transformation kinda just does it all. It's removal, it draws a card, you can buff a dork if you really need to. All in all, it's a very versatile card and always preforms something great.
Wren's Run Packmaster can just be a nice beater that takes the place of a dork, it can be a mana dump, it can create amazing blockers, and can even be tutored by Elvish Harbinger as well as any other creature tutor. It's a good creature by itself and if you do ever go infinite mana, it's a wincon with drawbridge or another haste enabler.
Lolth, Spider Queen is a great planeswalker for a deck with a lot of dies triggers. Getting the ultimate is not that hard and it can turn all of your small creatures into huge threats. Might be a little pricey though, and planeswalkers are never the best in edh, but it's a very potent one.
Slippery Bogbonder gives you a flash in blocker and also protection for any of your creatures. Best part is that the hexproof sticks around and you can even send counters to that creature. It's nice when your counterspell adds another creature to your board.
That's all I can think of :) This deck looks pretty awesome, and is giving me ideas on how to spice up my own one. There are plenty of infinite mana combos in elfball too, but it seemed like you were going for more of an attacking strategy.
Thanks for posting this one!

So here is a question i dont think anyone has asked, why no Pattern of Rebirth, just too expensive?
7 months ago
I was thinking that same thing. Helix Pinnacle is gonna be your most straight forward wincon that's not combat based. I'm not good with combos but maybe theres something good with Pattern of Rebirth . Maybe Tooth and Nail can grab 2 of the best creatures for the deck. Idk I'm not into combos that much but I know a few. Like Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker has a bunch.

That’s fair. RL cards have just spiked in price which is ridiculous. Survival is the most expensive card I own and even was before it grew in price. And I traded for it, so it was the best deal I ever got. And I say that knowing I picked up Earthcraft when it was $15.
Yeah Grim Tutor is okay. It’s a good tutor in mono black, but in multiple colors I’d only run it after all other tutors. I’m excited for Rushed Rebirth, but I don’t know if I can justify a cut for it. You have to have something on board to use it much like Natural Order or Pattern of Rebirth , but it only grabs something of lesser cmc. That means saprolings won’t help, and it will almost always grab either Young Wolf or Viscera Seer as we won’t get to keep Cryptic Trilobite with it. However if you aren’t running Survival, then there’s the slot!
Thank you! I’m glad you enjoy the deck! It is by far my favorite one I have.

Hey, ClaysNotBad. I've been away from tappedout these days and I have to update this list with some cards released last months. Actually never thought of Pattern of Rebirth , personally I don't like this card that much. Even that's easy to sacrifice a creature to tutor Hulk, the creature may die from opponents' removals before it is enchanted, and the mana value of it is high imo. Don't know if it's worth, still I find this card a great recommendation. It definitely worth at least a test :)
What card do you think that's good to swap for a slot to Pattern of Rebirth?

I've recently retooled my Karador deck to be less powerful and to focus on more of a toolbox theme. I've constructed this deck to be around 75% (or 7.5/10) mostly to ensure it's not oppressive and to have FUN! Most other decks in my meta are around this power level. I'm using infinite combo's mostly as a backup incase the game drags on too long, so you won't see cards/combo pieces like: Protean Hulk , Boonweaver Giant , Pattern of Rebirth , Academy Rector , etc as they are much too powerful I found out for my playgroup. More on this below -
Link to my deck: Karador Toolbox / Reanimator!
Deck Goal/Objective: The goal of this deck is to be a value-centric reanimator deck. I aims to take over a game with creatures, then grind my way to end and finally reanimating giant monsters to win the game. Again, infitine combos are a means of ending a game that has dragged on for to long, or else can’t be won on the battlefield.
Some background: So Karador was the first deck I created but I realized it was too strong as I based it off of a cEDH deck apparently (minus the expensive land base). It really wasn't fun for anyone to play and not really for myself either. So I've now totally revamped it and included a more reanimator/toolbox route. I'm looking to keep the strength of the deck around 75% - 80%. I'm hoping you guys could give me some feedback on my deck list and let me know if there is anything you think I should cut or suggestions for cards I should add in. Any links to other successful toolbox decks that do not only focus on infinite combos would be great!
About my Playgroup/Meta: So most of the decks in my playgroup are well constructed and I would say are at about 65% - 80% tooled. They are not too powerful but could also do fairly well against more competitive decks if needed. This is mostly to keep everything FUN! lol. From a price point perspective, I would say most decks are anywhere from $200 - $800 in value. Some of the Commanders our playgroup runs are: Zedruu the Greathearted , Atraxa, Praetors' Voice , Atraxa, Praetors' Voice , Korvold, Fae-Cursed King , Lazav, Dimir Mastermind , Chainer, Nightmare Adept , Kaalia of the Vast , Sisay, Weatherlight Captain , Lathliss, Dragon Queen , Sliver Overlord , Mayael the Anima , The Mimeoplasm , and a few others. - So please keep this in mind when making suggestions for additions/cuts to give me an advantage :)
PLEASE ALSO TAKE A LOOK AT MY "MAYBE BOARD". This has cards I cut or I'm unsure if I should include them. Happy to add to the list as well - but any feedback is appreciated!
Please let me know your thoughts and suggestions. Thanks guys!! :)
