Gobo_bot on PAUPER REANIM8R

I like, but I think it's trying to be a bit too fast and all in, would 100% cut Akki Drillmaster because a 3 mana haste enabler that dies to most removal in pauper isn't great, Gurmag Angler is a good beater and occational reanimation target. Divest and Exhume do not go well together, I would replace divest with Duress as you are attempting to take their interaction (counters/removal) and you already play the biggest creatures in pauper. I would also cut some number of removal spells for a full 4 Shred Memory as it it copies 5-8 of Exhume and is great in the mirror. Final point would be adding the last Bloodfell Caves and maybe a Rakdos Carnarium or Evolving Wilds / Ash Barrens as mana screw is a real problem with this deck

Divest seems like a strict sb upgrade from Ostracize

I'd cut Divest from that main - too many control decks right about now. I'd also add in a few more finishers. You've gotta kill your opponent somehow, and the discard effects are nearly dead as soon as your opponent is topdecking.

Although it would be hard to cast, many have looked at Goblin Chainwhirler with Bladebrand to board wipe. Not sure if it's for this deck but definitely possible. Also, for a control version of Rakdos, I would throw in some Duress , Divest , and Kitesail Freebooter for hand disruption. Lava Coil , Cast Down , Price of Fame , and Moment of Craving for removal. As for the long game "clock" part of your deck, I like the inheritance but you could also look at the kickers of Josu Vess, Lich Knight or Fight with Fire as late game finishers.

. I've been working on this deck for a while and am sure there are still weaknesses. The problem is one cannot address all problems. My sideboard has Vraska's Contempt for the expected increase we'll be seeing in Planeswalkers. I have Ravenous Chupacabra there for if I'm playing against a guy who's running big creatures. My main questions are Pilfering Imp over Hired Poisoner and perhaps drop Divest and Duress for something else. As with anything, when you make a recommendation, let me know what needs to be dropped. BTW I've won too many games because of Mark of the Vampire so that stays! Thanks in advance.

Thanks wallisface. Maybe that's part of why I don't use the card.

To the OP: Mission Brief Trap, I only use Hedrons as creatures and only 3 other playsets of mill, the rest of my deck is all card draw, life gain, creature removal, discard and any interaction I can think of. My deck isn't casual or budget and I still use Murderous Cut . Night of Souls' Betrayal , Crypt Incursion and even Opt . They (and Duress / Divest ,) are all good things and you are likely to find one or more fit your idea of fun.

Thanks for the nice words and feedback! I'm honestly not sure what's up with Circular Logic . I tried changing the printing but it still shows as an illegal card despite it definitely being pauper legal.

I was just talking today with some people who suggested putting in some cycle lands, I wasn't sure if it mattered whether they are Barren Moor or Lonely Sandbar . I will definitely do that though. Makes them way more valuable in late game.

I had thought about Putrid Imp and Aquamoeba but both are pretty vulnerable to ping (amoeba opens up when I activate its ability) and I liked the relatively more hearty Dragoon with the evasion it gives. I settled on Oblivion Crown as the alternate/supplementary engine since it can allow Cunning Survivor and Grisly Survivor to become even more threatening while being a little more difficult to remove (at least that's my inexperienced thought).

I really like the idea of Gorgers for applying pressure but I'm just not sure what to take out for them. Maybe I don't need Duress and Divest in the sideboard, so I can move some removal (of which I have a lot) and put the Gorgers in.

I'm also wondering if I should have some way to draw. Something like the Careful Study I have in the maybe board. It's why I was also considering Looter il-Kor . I've also kicked around the idea of a Thorn of the Black Rose for the draw that comes with Monarch.

Sorry for the lengthy reply and thanks again!
