I got this

Champion of Stray Souls + Carrion Feeder + Priest of Urabrask + Priest of Gix + Village Bell-Ringer + Reveillark + Panharmonicon.

Start with Champion of Stray Souls, Carrion Feeder, Panharmonicon, and Reveillark in play (the rest must be in the graveyard).

  1. Sac Reveillark to Champion of Stray Souls targeting Village Bell-Ringer.
  2. As it leaves, Reveillark will return both Priest of Urabrask and Priest of Gix to play: giving you six red mana and six black mana.
  3. Champion of Stray Souls will return Village Bell-Ringer: allow the first trigger to resolve then hold priority on the second.
  4. Use floating mana to activate Champion of Stray Souls: sacrificing Village Bell-Ringer, targeting Reveillark.
  5. Allow Reveillark to enter.
  6. Allow second Village Bell-Ringer trigger to resolve.
  7. Sac Priests to Carrion Feeder for 2 counters.
  8. Use floating mana to repeat step 1.

Now we have infinite Red and Black mana, and an infinitely large Carrion Feeder.

Please do Release to the Wind.

Also wanted to mention Emrakul's Evangel, Descent of the Dragons, Fresh Meat, and Second Harvest to turn a few tokens into a lot more tokens. Bramble Sovereign is another way to copy token-making creatures. Living Plane, Nature's Revolt, and Natural Emergence can animate your lands so you can make tokens of them.

Attrition, Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos, and Butcher of Malakir are good for creature removal.

For reanimation, you can also try Thrilling Encore, Journey to Eternity  Flip, Meren of Clan Nel Toth, and Champion of Stray Souls.

shadow63 Well you see, that's the thing, I don't know. What about mid-range reanimator?

luther I was just thinking of stuff that would be good to cheat out, Sundering Titan, Pelakka Wurm and Butcher of Malakir achieve that fairly well Meren of Clan Nel Toth and Champion of Stray Souls would make it easier to cheat out said creatures, the Champion especially works well with From Beyond and Reassembling Skeleton.

This also works fairly well with Jarad, theoretically I could infinitely reanimate Sundering Titan or Pelakka Wurm with Meren and Jarad both on the field, though unlikely.

I sort of see where you're coming from with Cruel Reality, it's just in there for pressure I suppose.

Sundering Titan, Cruel Reality, Meren of Clan Nel Toth, and Champion of Stray Souls could all go in my opinion. Probably Butcher of Malakir could go also. It will just be dead in hand most of the time. For any cards you go below 60 after getting rid of any of those cards, you should get something that you can actually play on turn 1 (or less preferably 2)

Sundering Titan unless your only playing multi player or against decks with lots of fancy lands you can blow up its not that good Champion of Stray Souls is way too mana intensive

hejin: Hey! I'm glad that my deck serves as some inspiration, just sorry that I wont be playing Primal surge anymore because it wasn't fun to win with it. I think I'm doing well with the removal I have now, but I'm keeping cards as Acidic Slime, Reclamation Sage, Seal of Primordium, Noxious Gearhulk and Ravenous Chupacabra in mind because it's possible that I'll need some of them.

Not a big fan of tutors for this deck except if they're a permanent who puts the card on top of the deck, and Mwonvuli Beast Tracker tutors too few creatures in the deck to be viable.

I really like Need for Speed! It'll be a great addition as the deck is now going towards a lands theme.

Champion of Stray Souls is a really greedy card, but if it's cheated out it might just be good enough! This deck doesn't put out enough creature tokens to make Krav, the Unredeemed good. Temporal Aperture doesn't fit in well with what the rest of the deck is doing.

Hi i like your deck a lot , i am trying to build my own, you gave me a few good idea's. My deck is primal surge too, outside of your commander do you have trouble with removal?

My deck is more of a land matters deck /token deck if you want to take a look still thinking about adding more aristocrat cards:

Some cards thar you might like (unplaytested):

some tutors permenants : Sidisi, Undead Vizier Brutalizer Exarch Dimir House Guard Mwonvuli Beast Tracker (you don't have to many targets for this one but if you ever add gitrog it can get it too.)

as for haste : Hammer of Purphoros, Need for Speed more lands matter enablers meybe not for you deck.

trying out : Champion of Stray Souls Krav, the Unredeemed Temporal Aperture thy well prob be changed
