Drakestown Forgotten Discussion

LadyZ on Savra, Queen of the Golgari Aristocrats

There are some more reanimation options you can look at. Victimize and Dread Return both support the aristocrats theme, and Vigor Mortis brings the creature back stronger.

I'd think about cutting Grave-Shell Scarab , it's main purpose is to fill your grave from the deck. Drakestown Forgotten similarly cares more about how fat your grave is than actually using it. And as for Gifted Aetherborn ... I would just cut it, but if you like the deathtouch-lifelink vampire that much, I'd pay the one extra for Vampire Nighthawk

passascats on Alesha, Who Smiles at Death

Here are some targets I like to get with Alesha:
Beast of Burden
Pack Rat
Malignus
Ignition Team
Drakestown Forgotten
Spike Cannibal (this one kind of depends on your meta, but it can wreck an Atraxa or Ramos deck).

Conquering Manticore, Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker, Feast on the Fallen, All Is Dust, Obliterate, Obelisk of Grixis, Darksteel Ingot, Nevinyrral's Disk, Sepulchral Primordial, Stingmoggie, Panharmonicon, Drakestown Forgotten, Dominus of Fealty, and Olivia Voldaren are what I'd suggest for cuts.

One addition I forgot to recommend though... Mikaeus, the Unhallowed. You have flayer of the hatebound already, so you should know how gross undying is here.

thumbs14 on Frowning uses more muscles anyways.

-Ugh. Selfless Spirit. Commence nightmares.

-Altar of Dementia and Millstone are interesting choices. You can target yourself to load up your graveyard.

-Some creature ideas. I'm pretty sure these work, since their base power is 0, and they don't get the counters until they enter the battlefield:

Hey multimedia,

Thank you for taking the time to write down all those suggestions.

I did have a lot of Basic lands, I replaced eight of them with Dimir Guildgate, Temple of Deceit, Sunken Hollow, Smoldering Marsh, Temple of Malice, Crumbling Necropolis, Vivid Marsh and Barren Moor. I also cut Mycosynth Wellspring < Gem of Becoming and Manalith < Fellwar Stone which I think are superior.

I followed your advice and replaced a few removals and less good board wipes. Sudden Death < Doom Blade, Consuming Vapors < Dreadbore, Grasp of Darkness < Cemetery Recruitment, Extinguish All Hope < Victimize and In Garruk's Wake < Syphon Flesh.

Traded a couple of cards I didn't like in favor of different ones such as the one you suggested Waste Not < Slave of Bolas and Dread Summons < Extract from Darkness

Finally replaced a couple of creatures in favor of zombies like Harvester of Souls < Vengeful Pharaoh and Consuming Aberration < Drakestown Forgotten.

Still tweaking a few things left and right, let me know what you think. Thanks !

ClockworkSwordfish on Alesha and Angry Little Dudes

A good trick for getting more punch out of Alesha is to run guys who have more power than their printed stats might indicate. For instance, Arcbound Overseer has 0 power when he's in the graveyard, but as soon as you return him, he's attacking for 6! Other examples include Clockwork Dragon, Drakestown Forgotten, Nighthowler, Sewer Nemesis, Thought Gorger, Ignition Team, Crovax the Cursed and Workhorse. Your opponents will be surprised how often "2 or less" won't feel like it!

Other cards that fit your general strategy include Grenzo, Dungeon Warden and Unearth, which can return a lot of the same cards as Alesha. You might also want more removal, such as Bone Shredder, Ravenous Baboons and Garza's Assassin. Good luck!
