Corpse Dance Discussion

gdm1989 thanks for the suggestions!

Corpse Dance could work, but it involves exiling one of my creatures, which doesn't work too well for synergy

Merciless Executioner is sort of a different Nekrataal or Big Game Hunter, so I might not include it

Soul Collector is a 3 power, so no inclusions there

Sorceress Queen is just a 1/1 body, I can't see any way how it could be good in the deck.

Stuffy Doll could be an include, I'd have to see what to take out for it, and Wall of Souls is the same thing

Thanks for your suggestions!

I saw your deck on the forum so I decided to give you a hand with some ideas

Corpse Dance Would work well for this deck Combine it with Merciless Executioner with buybackand enjoy getting rid of enemies. Soul Collector, Sorceress Queen would also work with the reanimator theme if you're looking to steal your opponent's stuff. Defensive wise Stuffy Doll or Wall of Souls is fun too

Hey Sicohippy!! It's been a while since I commented on this deck. Reading your description a couple things come to mind...

  1. Thank you mentioning me in your description, I truly feel honored.

  2. In your draw your whole deck tab, you need to put rings in the second list (you mention it in the description and the first list, but fail to put it in the second). Not sure if it matters, but just thought you would want to know.

  3. For mana denial, dont forget Trading Post acts like Bitterblossom in a sense. Moreover, don't forget it's synergy with Spreading Plague (I don't know how many white creatures you face in your meta, but many have pro black so from my understanding, you can destroy them since the plague doesn't target).

  4. For your "strong maybe" under maybeboard.... Corpse Dance is great, I just added it. But BEWARE! If they counter it, you will need to get your general back another way. Might I also recommend Imp's Mischief? Counters counterspells, and many other useful purpose. No one expects the black player to counter or redirect a spell. Defense grid seems a little weak depending on your meta. Sideboard card? Expedition Map is GOLDEN! Use it to find Urborg or Coffers or any nonbasic land you need! I added a tabernacle to my deck The Descent Into Darkness and it REALLY pulled its weight, ESPECIALLY against token decks. However, be careful with Army of the Damnned!

Still some major issues.

So first up, you want redundancy. So Megrim seems a must.

Secondly, too many lands. You don't need 31 lands in this sort of deck. Infact, there could be an arguement for more fast mana, like Lotus Petal and shaving some land.

Thirdly, your combo involves playing and protecting a necromancer to reanimate your Magus. And that is bad because it means you might as well just play Magus out as normal. You also have no consistent ways to discard it. Shallow Grave is better than Apprentice. Corpse Dance is also an option.

For self discard, Thoughtseize, Cabal Therapy are both pretty solid, as is Collective Brutality. They also let you protect your combo. Some reanimator decks play Careful Consideration too.

As far as Corpse Dance goes, remember that Sunforger can only cast red or white instants. It can't cast mono-black ones

I don't play alesha, but from the way it plays I would think Corpse Dance(wow this card spiked!) would be good.
