rache on Would I ever?

Getting into legacy and plan on running reanimator. My creature selection is pretty standard running 4 Griselbrand 4 Chancellor of the Annex 1 Iona, Shield of Emeria 1 Sire Of Insanity and 1 Tidespout Tyrant. My question, is there ever a scenario where I'm on the play and would be better off reanimating Griselbrand rather than Iona or Sire?

Titus78 on Kaalia of the Vast

cdkime I do kind of want to cut Mordant Dragon but I'm not a huge fan of Chancellor of the Annex just because it's okay in the beginning of the game but loses a lot of value as the game progresses, until mid to late game when most opponent have a lot mana to spend and mana isn't really going to hurt them at all. but think ill go with the safe choices either Akroma, Angel of Wrath or Rakdos the Defiler which one do thing is better? lastly I just don't think one tutor is really worth it in a 100 card deck and if drew it mid to late game it would just be pretty meh unlike Insurrection which would most likely win me the game.

It’s no bother at all - happy to help!

I do not think you need any of those creatures. Indulgent Tormentor gives your opponent three options, allowing them multiple ways to pick whatever will work best for them. Resolute Archangel will often not make that big of a difference in games. Hoard-Smelter Dragon is nice if you have Artifact-heavy opponents, but most of the time you’d rather just use Hellkite Tyrant. I gave your list another look - Chancellor of the Annex is a fairly solid card if you’re looking for something new.

I think your Price of Glory substitution makes sense.

I don’t think I would cut Diabolic Tutor. Tutors are a very important part of EDH, as they allow you to find that one copy of the card you desperately need. Diabolic Tutor is very marginal, as far as tutors go, but it’s what you get for budget builds.

SenseiRamen those are some cool suggestions! I like Dream Cache a lot. That just seems like a upgrade to some other filter spells in the deck, and Haunted Crossroads lets your recover well from a board wipe. I like the idea of Helm of the Host, but it costs too much mana and is too slow for my liking, so i'll include Blade of Selves instead. I think the extra copies of the creatures are worth it for the deck, even if it doesn't synergies very well with some of our creatures like Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite because of the legend rule, and Chancellor of the Annex because it doesn't stick around.

You're off to a good start.

Replace Cancel with another three mana counterspell like Dissipate or Void Shatter. You can also play something like Supreme Will which is a conditional counterspell but also functions as a makeshift Impulse. This means if you reveal it with Yennett, you can cast it for free still. Mystic Confluence is good for the same reason (which you are already running).

Your bomb package is good although I think Nezahal, Primal Tide is worth considering along with Chancellor of the Annex.

I'd also recommend more ways to protect Yennett (and your other bombs). Cards like Mother of Runes and Kira, Great Glass-Spinner do this well.

Path to Exile and Vindicate are essential removal spells you aren't running. I'm also fond of Council's Judgment and Aura of Silence.

Budget cards to consider: Aegis Angel, Reya Dawnbringer, Reaper from the Abyss, Angelic Arbiter Spirit en-Dal Rakdos Charm

Pricey cards to consider: Chancellor of the Annex Magus of the Moat Mother of Runes Admonition Angel Blinding Angel Thunder Dragon

There's lots of options but do also be care of creature cards that say "When monster attacks" because when cheated it, they are not technically attacking because they weren't there during the declare attackers step in combat so their ability doesn't work if they were put in by Kaalia. Enter the battlefield effects are usually better unless the attack ability is too good not to have for a second swing in.

Selling some stuff out of my collection, everything should be marked below TCG low as of today. Shipping is $0.50 in PWE at buyer's risk or $3 for tracking and insurance. If you are interested in multiple cards, if it's over $50 I will give a discount. Thanks for looking!
