Scavenger Grounds Discussion
1 day ago
Hey, thanks for all the recs!
I think you have a point about the land count, I've been thinking similarly since I brewed it. Might just drop the O-Rings for some lands. That said, Ghost Quarter seems like a good idea, as does Scavenger Grounds so I might run three GQ and a Scav, with maybe one more Scav in the sideboard. I'm not too worried about losing the claws.
Disenchant / Revoke Existence / Blessed Alliance are certs for the side, and Nevermore is one I was thinking of myself. A scav or two removes the need for stuff like Relic of Progenitus or Silent Gravestone but maybe that latter one could be useful against reanimator strategies.

I think Irregular Cohort needs a bigger land-base. I'd say 20 would be the minimum just for Kabira Evangel. 22-23 is probably necessary for consistency.
Talus Paladin doesn't seem like it's worth 4CMC, especially with an already strained mana-base. Perhaps if there was a lifegain wincon, I'd see the value, but Ondu Cleric should gain you so much life, it just seems like overkill to keep the Paladin. I suggest swapping it out for a lower CMC Ally, probably a blink target like Expedition Envoy .
Tezzeret's Gambit perhaps, for some card draw?
Reprobation might be useful as an inexpensive sideboard option against graveyard recurrence. Blessed Alliance / Celestial Flare also against indestructible and hexproof. Nevermore can shut down a lot of decks, too. Usually good to have instant artifact/enchantment removal - Disenchant , though if you can make enough tokens, Sundering Growth might be worth slowing down to sorcery speed. I like to also run Revoke Existence in the event opponent has graveyard interactions.

Have you considered Scavenger Grounds as another utility land? Incidental graveyard hate often proves to be very good

With Islandwalk potentially being the difference between a win and loss, perhaps Quicksilver Fountain would be of use here.
Chart a Course seems to fit thematically, but you'd need some more creatures to make it viable. Jace's Ingenuity is just bad. It makes Harmonize look like a dream. As rule of thumb, draw card isn't good if it works out to much more than 1CMC/card drawn. And it doesn't create card advantage unless you're drawing at least 2 cards - that is - can-tripping is deck-thinning. I don't think you want to deck thin here, because those slots are better used for lands you need to cast your big creatures. Divination is probably the more acceptable option, though I'm not particularly found of it.
Another option: use Master Transmuter to drop an Inkwell Leviathan . This would require more artifacts, but that could be the way to go - things like Springleaf Drum and Paradise Mantle with Ornithopters can be a very fast mana ramp. You'd also get Stoic Rebuttal , Darksteel Citadel , and creatures like Etherium Sculptor . If you do go with artifacts, Buried Ruin would be smart.

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 .
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.

Cut Welding Jar (not much mainboard artifact hate in modern rn).

Why are you running Evolution Sage ? What are you proliferating? Sorry if I’ve missed something...
Also I think you could run some more utility lands.
- Windswept Heath etc
Use Golos to get fetch lands which you can then crack to fetch more lands to get double landfall triggers?

Neat deck. The first thing that jumps out to me is you might want some more graveyard hate. I'd say Scavenger Grounds would be a good fix for that since you could put cycling deserts in for multiple purges. Speaking of lands, Drownyard Temple seems like an easy addition given the synergy with the signature spell and the Frog. Other than that it seems like more landfall triggers are called for like Avenger of Zendikar and/or Rampaging Baloths for further value or Eternity Vessel and/or any of the life gainers to help mitigate the Chasm.
As for how to free up space, I notice you're missing a card so you already have a free slot and, while obviously good, that Liliana seems better placed in a self-mill zombie deck.
