Command the Dreadhorde Discussion

Have you considered a Witch's Oven or 2? They can cycle your Cauldron Familiars, which can be nice.

Also, Command the Dreadhorde can be nasty later game maybe.

Interested as to why there's no reanimation sub theme? Im looking at building athreos, and his coins seem better as protection for your big boys, especially as it's only one per cycle. Cards like Reanimate and Command the Dreadhorde feel like they'd fit very well!

Other than that, looking good!

Apologies for my lack of comment-response; I've been busy with college. Now that finals are done, I'm making a few updates to the list and am excited for what new death-defying underworldly orzhov shenanigans we get out of new Theros.

SirChris39 Glad you liked the deck back in September! Hope you still do haha

Zordy93 Walker is coming in. I don't know why I've taken this long to realize it exists in the way it does. I've tested it recently and the fact that it dies on entry from the graveyard isn't completely irrelevant. It's a free trigger from things like Lifeline or Command the Dreadhorde .

The Wanderer can help you take no damage, especially when paired with Command the Dreadhorde .

Thieves' Fortune could be upgraded with Supreme Will . Essentially the same cost as the chance of triggering prowl is almost non-existent, has the Impulse effect you are looking for plus you have another potential [weak] counterspell in the decklist.

Chainer, Nightmare Adept could give you another way to recur Gray Merchant of Asphodel .

A couple of non-creature permanents to add to your devotion could be useful here; No Mercy , Phyrexian Arena and/or Necropotence or a mono-black planeswalker like Ob Nixilis Reignited . Sorry these aren't the most budget of suggestions...

Command the Dreadhorde could act as a backup of sorts to Living Death .

Here’s a small list of cards from your maybeboard that I would move to your main:

Strangelove on Anje Reanimator

+1! @Your post

I'd cut...

Zombie Infestation ... I like this card, but when are you going to draw the cards to fuel this? I'd say there are better discard outlets, eg. Skirge Familiar , Phantasmagorian , etc.

Bloodthirsty Blade ... fluffy, < Doom Blade , etc.

Boneyard Parley ... 7 mana for 2-3 creatures of your opponent's choice is so meh. < Balthor the Defiled , Twilight's Call , Command the Dreadhorde , etc.

Cut ... fluffy, weak removal, weak late game burn.

Anje's Ravager ... this card is awful. I'd rather play Sire Of Insanity or Awaken the Erstwhile if you're going to dump your hand... or Faithless Looting .

Bog Witch ... slow! Cut!

You might also go down to 34 lands and add a few more madness.

Good luck!

I know you already run a lot of good spot removal and while I hate to recommend this to you, Vindicate can be helpful of getting rid of those pesky coffers, urborg and cradles.

Also, where is your card draw? I know you hate steady card draw and prefer burst, but with Orzhov, you need card draw.

You're actually running urborg? :P Jk But for real, you're running Worn Powerstone ? I would rather run Hedron Archive , but both suck IMO. Your curve is already filled up at 3, not including your commander, so having a 4 drop that can ramp you the turn it comes into play and draw you cards later when you need it would be useful in a deck with little to no card draw. Even Orzhov Locket might be worth considering.

Primevals' Glorious Rebirth > Command the Dreadhorde ? I'm assuming your primary purpose is for walker recursion but I could be wrong.

Something that could be fun would be Angelic Renewal . Helps recur one of your value creatures, very good with ones with nice etbs. My particular favorite would be Sun Titan . That can be an alt wincon should you need it and it isn't completely useless either.

Cut Bloodline Keeper  Flip for High Priest of Penance . Blood line is too slow and high priest comes down early and can be useful with a sac outlet for political purposes or just good removal.

Ever consider running the monarch land (the name escapes me at the moment). With all your defense, and the fact they need to choose between attacking you or a walker, it can provide some card draw.
