TheDevicer So maybe sack the 4 Armada Wurm and the 4 Shadowborn Demon for 3 Ashen Rider , 3 Worldspine Wurm , and 2 Duress ?

TheDevicer Do you think it would be a better idea to replace Armada Wurm with Ashen Rider ? And the reason I run Armada Wurm in the first place is so if I return him with Whip of Erebos I still get a free 5/5 Token and I don't lose it unlike the Armada Wurm itself. And finally what kind of hand disruption are we talking? I'm imagining Sin Collector (Because I can't afford Thoughtseize xD)

You'll want to have some kind of answers to the things your opponents run. Adding a few kill spells or hand disruption makes it so that you can actually get to the point where reanimating becomes a thing. You might as well run Ashen Rider just for the control aspect. Also, you want multiple reanimate targets so that you won't fold to Detention Sphere .

Also, can you elaborate why you're running Armada Wurm and Shadowborn Demon .

You might like Lotleth Troll and Worldspine Wurm .

thanks for the advice man. i do agree with you on the 4th Elspeth, Sun's Champion , however, the deck does get clogged up alot of the time as surprising as that may sound for reanimator. this deck in particular usually draw alot of its high curve and not enough enablers, or just has out of reach draws at the wrong time. i Definately will say Ashen Rider will be a great addition to the deck overall. i considered but the more i test play the deck the more i want it

Not Gonna Lie. I Love the reanimator Setlists. I do have some ideas for you however, and i hope maybe we can make something great here.

  1. Ashen Rider Regardless if the game is going bad, hes a Hard-Cast Lifesaver. (This Applies to Shadowborn Demon as well.) The Exile Ability is just too good for me to pass up. I have seen another reanimator that was R/B and utilized Oracle of Bones To cheat in Fated Return on Ashen Rider . I like the Whip of Erebos letting you cheat in an Exile, Swing for 5 in the air, gain 5 life, and then upon ending your turn, Exiling another permanant. its an amazing combo. turn 4 wipe out lands maybe? Oh Yes.

  2. Another Elspeth, Sun's Champion Why? Because the chances of mana dorking a turn 4 elspeth is just outstanding. more Elspeths' the better honestly. (and hardcasting isnt impossible either.) Imagine having an Elspeth at 5 loyalty and obzedat'ing another back from the graveyard after -3'ing the first Elspeth. The first one becomes a potential board wipe whilst the second one is putting up more soldiers. youve got 6 1/1 soldiers with their board kinda "Esper Control" ish as it sounds, its a great thing to have.

  3. Treasure find I dont honestly like this card alot, but with the extra Elspeth, Sun's Champion out there its great for Returning Obzedat Aid's to you. Im still iffy on this card but its always a suggestion.

And What i really like about your reanimator compared to mine is the fact that you do not overutilize your whips. whips can be good (Especially for Obzedat, Ghost Council like...ohmygoodness) but the aids are the bigger keypoint in my opinion. Elspeth and Sylvan Primordial should be the keypoints in the deck.

But Overall Yes. LOVE the deck. Heck Even my Legacy is turn one rediculousness.

lastdragon21 doesnt do enough for his price, Blood Baron of Vizkopa doesn't follow the theme of the deck as well as Ashen Rider plus its too expensive (mana wise).

Lordryan06 maybe Advent of the Wurm because Reaper of the Wilds doesn't really make sense for the theme of the deck.

ArchdemonofShadow what lastdragon21 said, and Detention Sphere .

@Scorprix To echo what Kaitoghost said, Chain Lightning is another Bolt. Granted it's a sorcery, but RDW wants to deal as much damage for as little mana as possible. If the opponent does happen to make the mistake of paying RR and I play it turn 3, I can hav them take 6 to the dome that turn. Most players won't make that mistake.

Keldon Megaliths is nifty, but it ETB tapped, which is horrid for RDW. I need fuel for my fire and want to maximize mana each turn. Barbarian Ring is like a Shock , easy to activate, and can end games.

Yep, Ashen Rider is for the Show and Tell matchup. They can drop Griselbrand , Emrakul, the Aeons Torn , Iona, Shield of Emeria , etc. turn 2 and I have no other way to deal with it. Ashen Rider makes quick work of the critters and is a flying 5/5 to boot, furthering our strategy. Price
