Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor on The classic colors of reanimation...Boros

Risque - I had considered Herald's Horn, and even though I am angel tribal, I don't think I am running enough to truly get value from the Horn as I only have 18. You probably want 25+ to consistently trigger the horn. The cost reduction + Urza's Incubator is nice, but if I am actually hard casting most of my angels, something has gone terribly wrong haha. On that note though, I have been strongly considering the addition of Mesmeric Orb as another self-mill option.

ClockworkSwordfish - I always forget about that card. I'll have to give it a look. I will say though, part of the reason why I don't run Breath of Life is because it's sorcery speed and not attached to a body, but the +1/+1 counters are intriguing.

I... what... what is this amazing thing?

I'll admit I have no clue how the deck plays but I love the idea.

As a side note, Breath of Life is not legal in Pauper.

You have 2 Nyxathid listed. All Hallow's Eve would work well, yes it also brings back your opponents creatures but you should have more and better creatures.Artisan of Kozilek,Journey to Eternity  Flip,Breath of Life,Corpse Connoisseur, Dawn of the Dead would all fit your theme.

Welcome to Tapped Out!

It isn't quite Modern, due to Breath of Life(7th Edition), Karoo(Visions/Commander 2014) and Longbow Archer(7th Edition). You probably want to adjust the format to Casual or change those three cards out for something that at least from 8th Edition forward on to make it modern legal and you're short one card, you have 59. Emeria, The Sky Ruin and Grand Abolisher would be a nice addition and maybe some Silences.

Samurai of the Pale Curtain is my personal favorite samurai of the Kamigawa block.

Well after my denial w/ Boros, I actually have one other plan in mind...

Should I make a Gate Deck, or what? Just asking to be sure...

First, run Path of Ancestry and Opal Palace. With your Ghostly Flicker, Halimar Depths (and maybe even Sejiri Steppe) could be twice as good. Azorius Cluestone is nothing to sniff at as well, providing card draw in the late game.

Then ditch Curse of Chains for Afterlife.

I don't think Wormfang Drake does anything for you, as well as the support of Expedition Raptor with you flickering your stuff all the time. Speaking of it: I'd not deny myself the value of Displace in this deck. Therefor, you don't need Aether Spellbomb.

And did you know that Breath of Life has an expensive brother called False Defeat?

I am unsure what you are trying to do because your card choices are kind of all over the place (like why have Abzan Falconer, co. with almost no +1/+1 counter support?). Here are a few ideas to hopefully make the deck function better in general:

I would get up to 36 lands and ~10 mana rocks (Fellwar Stone, Mind Stone, Coalition Relic, etc.) because with so many high CMC spells you won't be doing much without em.

You also have near to no card advantage; Mind's Eye, Cathartic Reunion, Reforge the Soul, etc. let you find what you need and get rid of what is not helpful at that time. And reanimation spells like Defy Death, Karmic Guide, and Breath of Life can get back discarded creatures later.

With so many big angels I am unsure why you have fogs. They generally would only be good early game but then the damage is negligible. I would add ways to give your aerial forces vigilance so you can attack without leaving yourself vulnerable. Heliod, God of the Sun, Serra's Blessing, Brave the Sands, and Angelic Field Marshal are all solid additions.

Hello, this looks really good...I like this commander! A couple suggestions to consider that are on-theme: Angelic Renewal, Scroll of Avacyn and Seraph Sanctuary. White is poor with recursion so there are not many options, but you could add Haunted Fengraf and Breath of Life. +1
