Careful Study Discussion

ivaliado on Legacy Dragon-Reanimator (Budget)

3 days ago


For the Fetchs, I just can afford Evolving Wilds. And now i understand how Brainstorm can be useless without the shuffle effect.

What do you think about Careful Study?

I never realize how Victimize is just awlful. I'll fix this!

On the dragons, the "chosen" ones was basically because i have them and they always seemed satisfactory to me...Despite that, i totally agree with the sugestions based on what you said: " better options exist". I played with the suggested creatures and was totally surprised!

Really appreciate the help!

Careful Study isn't modern leagl, neither is Force Spike. Annul is sideboard only

Carrier Thrall and Memory Sluice are by far the weakest cards on the deck. I would definitely swap the set of Carrier Thrall for Animate Dead.

Memory Sluice may seem good, putting 4 cards on the yard is great for reanimator, the problem with it is that you have no control over what is getting milled away. Careful Study allows you to draw the top 2 cards of your deck and then decide what goes to the yard so you don't run the risk of milling one of your reanimation spells and it allows you to dump a big creature that was stuck on your hand. Give Careful Study a chance, it's a good card.

So you have 8 big reanimation targets in Sepulchral Primordial and Diluvian Primordial which is a good number for optimized lists. As far as upgrades for your bombs go Inkwell Leviathan is a solid threat and Kederekt Leviathan helps reset the board after you bring it back.

A problem you might face is having your big creatures stuck on your hand, Careful Study and Putrid Imp help lot with that.

Having only Ever After as your reanimation spell is also not good, Life/Death, Exhume, Stitch Together and Animate Dead are good options.

Buried Alive is great at getting your reanimation targets to the yard and Reanimate is the namesake of reanimator decks, both would be great additions, but the price tags...

Darreti, Scrap Savant, Trash for Treasure, and Scrap Mastery all have welding effects.

Getting artifacts in grave from hand is relatively easy, looting effects such as Faithless Looting, Izzet Charm, Careful Study, Monastery Siege, and Thirst for Knowledge.

I think the only tutor for noncreature artifacts from deck to grave is Entomb, which I don't think is within your budget. There's also Buried Alive, but it works with only artifact creatures. Also potentially Gamble.

Hope this helps!

I would suggest playing Brainstorm or Thirst for Knowledge over Careful Study. I would also consider upping the cantrips using Serum Visions, Ponder, and/or Preordain, as it seems the only way to win is via the Laboratory Maniac combo.

Fun build! +1 Some low-costed filters like Frantic Search and Careful Study might help.

This looks very strong! I like using quick filters like Careful Study and Faithless Looting to enable madness.
