Restoration Specialist Discussion

NensouHiebara on Balan, Equipment Voltron

@HobbyGamer007

Using two cards that don't do anything on their own isn't a good idea.


@CavemanlyMan

Idyllic Grange's one-shot +1/+1 counter is too low-impact. Cathedral of War offers a similar effect and I don't use it either.

Restoration Specialist being a creature is too much of an asset to give it up for a sorcery.

I do focus on utility creatures quite a bit. Anything is better when it's attached to a body.

Also Mine Excavation instead of Restoration Specialist ? It's not instant speed, but is that really that important? Also it can't be removed, and it costs one less mana. You have plenty of creatures in order to be able to return two artifacts/enchantments. I'd say give it a try. If you really put that much importance on creatures, then.. eh

CrimsonChaos on Elenda's Second Choice

I love Elenda! Using her as a commander can be tricky since you normally can't get the most out of her abilities unless you let her hit the grave. However, I see you have Kaya's Ghostform slotted in, which is useful as long as it doesn't get removed at the wrong moment. To supplement that, I recommend considering cards like Restoration Specialist , Treasury Thrull , and most especially Hall of Heliod's Generosity to give you added recursion, all of which can give you back Ghostform and Animate Dead to reuse! Plus a little added insurance never hurt anyone.

Hey, nice version of Teysa. I don't know if it's great or that competitive, but fine for casual.

Budget is obviously a concern therefore my card suggestions will be within the budget. With only two tutors (Intent, Diabolic) to get Darkest Hour and only two sources of repeatable draw (Mentor, Skullclamp) going to have a difficult time out valuing your opponents or even keeping up with them. My advice is expand on Skullclamp since it's your best source of card advantage with sac outlets and tokens. Include more ways to get Skullclamp and recur Skullclamp?

Repeatable draw to consider adding:

Other cards within the budget to consider adding:


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Forsaken Sanctuary
  • Orzhov Guildgate
  • Scoured Barrens
  • 2x Plains
  • Beckon Apparition
  • Intangible Virtue
  • Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts
  • Archetype of Finality
  • Drana's Emissary
  • Anointer Priest
  • Spark Harvest
  • Commander's Sphere

Tutors: Shred Memory , Diabolic Tutor , Mastermind's Acquisition , Commune with the Gods .

Deck names: Fartless Summoning, Summoning Funnoning, Summoning Bums, Heedless Summoning, Wreckless Summoning, Discount Monsters, Mold-Damaged Beasts, Runts, Grunts, Cheap Beasts, Seconds, Defect Discount... I can come up with some more if you're interested.

Other relevant spells: Always Watching (negates -1/-1 from Heartless Summoning, Hall of Heliod's Generosity , Tragic Poet , Odunos River Trawler , Restoration Specialist , Bojuka Bog , Mortuary Mire , Buried Ruin , Scavenger Grounds , Field of Ruin , Ghost Quarter , Bump in the Night , Lightning Bolt , Terminate , Cast Down .

Sideboard spells: Beast Within , Return to Nature , Scavenging Ooze , Geth's Verdict , Pithing Needle , Ratchet Bomb , Elixir of Immortality , Fog .

I don't see the need for Mass Hysteria. It's nice, but not relevant to the deck's goal of getting Heartless Summoning down. I'd cut it in favor tutors and/or disruption/utilities.

DragonLordJippy on Worship's Reward - Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle

Ohhh yeah. Also, just another "Construct" for Scrapyard Recombiner (though it is not currently in my list). So, Salvager of Ruins makes for an excellent Apostle. Hell, maybe even the best Apostle this list could have received. It will replace Restoration Specialist , as she only fulfilled a niche role in the list. Either Ranger-Captain of Eos of Recruiter of the Guard can hunt down our Salvage Scout , should the Lion's Eye Diamond line be made available. It's important to note two things in concerns to Salvager of Ruins: 1. It can go off without a Sacrifice outlet; 2. The Answers/Rewards we use must have been removed from the Battlefield -> Graveyard that same turn, so it's a bit trickier to set up, however... It is an auto-include for it's massive potential, as it returns any permanent. It isn't only a recurring combo piece, it's protection. I absolutely love it.

gzusvictory on NensouHiebara

Dude!? What happened to Armory Automaton ?? It’s like a mini Heavenly Blademaster that cheats the equip costs and even steals equipment from the opponent! No way am I cutting it for Restoration Specialist , at least not until I hear your reasoning.

By the way, Winds of Abandon seems better than Single Combat and/or Cataclysmic Gearhulk . Having the option between one sided board wipe or another “ Path to Exile ” in a pinch seems too good to pass up. Seems like the closest thing to a white Cyclonic Rift we are going to get. Let’s not give the opponent a choice of keeping their best creature or any chump blockers.

But

I do see the downside of doing this to like a token deck and them playing more stuff with the lands you got them. Both Single Combat and Cataclysmic Gearhulk do interact with players who have multiple planeswalkers out. Plus Gearhulk can wear a sword well and Single Combat prevents rebuild in a very unique way.

I am glad you took the advice of running Smothering Tithe . I love the synergy of obtaining metal craft with it.
