Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts is fun and scary, but a 7 mana card that doesn't really do anything to help your game plan seems like a decent cut.

Angel of Despair is obviously good, but you're not exactly hurting for removal. Seems like a good cut since you already run (the arguably better) Ashen Rider.

As for a third, it gets tricky. My two picks for the third cut would be Blood Baron of Vizkopa or Greenwarden of Murasa. They're both very good, though. I would do some more testing and see if one of them seems to underperform.

Ah, OK, so that's a no on the CoCo, too? I can trade CoCo for Steam Vents, Mwonvuli Acid-Moss, and Ashen Rider if you'd like.

Nice composition, I especially like the creature choice.I am building a similar deck and can throw some ideas your way:I think the main drawback you have is card draw. You are going for Card quality instead, with tons of ways to search your library. However, if you don't draw any of those cards, or you don't draw enough lands you will starve before ramping up. Any of your creatures are good enough to dominate mid-game. You only need specific cards for lategame. It would be considerably easier to achieve the mid-game with ramping up mana and drawing cards.I would suggest switching out some copies of Time of Need, Weird Harvest and Congregation at Dawn for Explore and Harmonize. And perhaps 2 Elvish Harbinger for 2 Sakura-Tribe Elder.

Some further creatures to look at:

Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Aurelia, the Warleader, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Knollspine Dragon, Sepulchral Primordial, Ashen Rider, Bringer of the Blue Dawn, Craterhoof Behemoth, Hellkite Overlord, Pelakka Wurm, Razia, Boros Archangel, Thraximundar

I love your tasigur build and now I am thinking of building this deck. I love what white can do with this deck and I have some suggestions I wanted to bounce off you:


Anguished Unmaking /Utter End


Ashen Rider

Saffi Eriksdotter

Gaddock Teeg

Grand Abolisher

Mother of Runes

Dauntless Escort

Aura Shards


Eternal Witness


Viscera Seer


Cyclonic Rift

Also, what are the top ten cards you would be okay with cutting from your current version of your thrasios/ravos 4 color reanimator?

I would really like to see the effort you put into optimizing tasigur translate to the 4 color edition. Keep up the great articles and whatnot great stuff!

Definitely needs Ashen Rider, perhaps Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Reya Dawnbringer, and Sheoldred, Whispering One.

Also needs Command Tower, Birds of Paradise, and possibly Deathrite Shaman. You need color fixing. Three colors is too many for mostly basics.

Brilliant Ultimatum and Seek the Horizon aren't very good cards, i think you would do just fine without them.
Currently, your deck is all powerful fatties, but it lacks a supporting shell around them: Cards that cheat creatures into play (Elvish Piper, Garruk, Caller of Beasts, Selvala's Stampede), cards that benefit from them (Rishkar's Expertise, Chandra's Ignition), cards that interact with the opposition (Austere Command, Cyclonic Rift, Ashen Rider) and cards that protect you from bad things (Swan Song, Stubborn Denial) seem like they would be helpful.

A Reanimator list with the usual suspects seems like the best option. The goal is to Dark Ritual -> Entomb -> Animate Dead a giant dude. Usually, Griselbrand, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Tidespout Tyrant, Sire Of Insanity, Ashen Rider, and Borborygmos Enraged are the usual targets. Master of Cruelties is nice, though, because you can just cast it off of Lotus Petal + Dark Rituals.

Bane of Progress and Aura Shards do work against Breya decks, and Ashen Rider is a good creature.
