Exhume Discussion

Byuante on Marchesa's Demonic Tool Box

Your mana curve is far higher than your amount of lands can account for. I would consider adding more lands until you have around 38 or so. Is this a budget deck? If it's not, please consider

Cavern of Souls,Badlands,Underground Sea,Volcanic Island,Blood Crypt,Watery Grave,Steam Vents,Most Fetches, and Bojuka Bog. If you were to add these, either consider removing the bounce lands or add Amulet of Vigor to try to counteract the "enters tapped" clause.

Patriarch's Bidding seems under utilised here, try adding Entomb or Buried Alive to try and "cheat" in some big guys, you could also try Reanimate or Exhume.

I'd consider removing all 12 Shadowborn Apostles, as there are other ways to cheat things in like Omniscience or As Foretold, or, my favourite, Demon of Death's Gate

If you'd want some more "tribal" ideas, you could look through Angelic Devotion.

Um, frankly, not really. It is one of the weaknesses of this deck I think. You want to play on every player's end step, which admittedly gets annoying for some players.

Putting some more creatures that get bigger with deaths (like Swarm of Bloodflies, Carrion Feeder, or Bloodflow Connoisseur) could be one method. Fallen Ideal is a sac outlet that can protect your commander (against damage based board wipes or removal) and gives evasion via flying, which could possibly make commander damage a sudden unexpected wincon.

I think one of the best (that is, fastest) strategies would be to use lifedraining effects of Zulaport Cutthroat, Blood Artist, Falkenrath Noble,Grey Merchant of Asphodel, Tattered Mummy and possibly others, perhaps in combination with a token swarm strategy. In fact, an artifact token strategy with Marionette Master and Genesis Chamber could be a great way to go.

The problem is that this deck needs enough control elements to protect itself, since it is very much a glass cannon. Maybe consider more tutors - there are definitely some that I don't have just because of the costs. Buried Alive, Entomb, Vampiric Tutor, cheap reanimation like Reanimate, Animate Dead, and Exhume could help you assemble your engine faster. This deck is rather slow by nature of having a 5CMC commander, needing protection to keep it stable, and needing at least a few other creatures on board to do anything useful. This deck depends on building up a massive board state, which takes time.

If you find yourself consistently having a lot of mana available (via Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, Black Market, etc) you might be able to make a card like Exsanguinate work as a wincon.

PlattBonnay on Help me update my Reanimator ...

1 month ago

Haven't gotten to play legacy since the top banning, had some questions before I update my RBx Reanimator list (current decklist at the bottom)

1. Is there a consensus on the best splash? Currently I'm on white primarily for Wear/Tear as I think it's the safest splash for an unknown metagame, but I know that people have had success with the green and blue splashes as well.

2. Is Sire of Insanity still good enough? I know it used to be a staple, but I've seen a lot of recent lists that don't have it anywhere in the 75.

3. Chancellor is always a mainboard card right? I believe it is, but I have seen a couple lists that either don't play it at all or just have it in the board. Both seem wrong, but I'd be willing to try it if it if you guys have some positive feedback about it.

4. Any glaring omissions in my list? Like I said, I haven't played it in a while, but I don't think my list is that far off, it's mostly just the sideboard that I'm actually concerned about.

rayzoredge on Even Jack Sparrow is Screwed

I'm unsure about this. Love the idea, but not sure how I would execute it myself.

Having more than 20 cards being a dead draw until you get your Quests out can be pretty painful.

I would replace Index with Ponder. Yes, less cards to re-arrange, but you also get to draw and a free shuffle if your next three draws are garbage.

Maybe run some Propaganda to buy time against creature aggro. Cyclonic Rift can be VERY useful... I personally love that card, so I'm slightly biased.

If money isn't an object, I'd recommend Scroll Rack for library manipulation. You can also add black and make this into a reanimator build, using cards like Buried Alive and Exhume if you don't like spending $20 for Reanimate or Entomb. =)

Sparky41 on Looking for Tron pieces

1 month ago

Hey friend! I see you pretty much have the tron covered, but I have 2x Lotus Petal and 3x Exhume if you're interested in trading your Land Tax for reanimator pieces.

Let me know!

PG7m on So how is Pauper doing?

1 month ago

There are some really crazy lists out there. For example I played against the Eldrazi Reanimator that can put an Ulamog's Crusher on the board as early as turn 2 with Dragon Breath using Putrid Imp and Exhume. It's not unbeatable but it'll put you on a clock for sure.

Asyndeton on Liliana the discarded healer

1 month ago

Hi, At first i think you don't need that many lands, about 35-38 should be enough. Also the strategy (Discard right?) isn't well constructed. I would recommend also discarding cards from your Hand and creating some Synergies with your graveyard (Reanimator stuff etc...). Here are some Cards which are relativ cheap, but could work quite well.

Discard stuff:Mind Shatter, The Rack, Shrieking Affliction, Rotting Rats

Reanimation and Graveyard stuff:Gravecrawler, Exhume, Buried Alive, Victimize, Bojuka Bog!!!, Zombify, Nighthowler

Maybe some Ramp:Commander's Sphere, Mind Stone, Sol Ring

Other good Stuff:Yawgmoth's Bargain, Mutilate, Languish, Bloodgift Demon, Profane Command, Swiftfoot Boots, Skullclamp, Avatar of Woe, Desecration Demon, Harvester of Souls, Phyrexian Reclamation, Nekrataal, Shriekmaw, Polluted Mire

I think that most of the cards are affordable and could improve this deck a lot. Adding more removal is also important. There are plenty of more cards, but this list should be enough for some new toughts :)

AlexRuzhyo on Sidisi's Legion

1 month ago

While signets are good, you'd consider mana dorks over rocks. Sidisi triggers, cheaper to cast, ect.

You have a lot of ways to trigger Sidisi, which while not bad, means you're relying a ton on her. You may lack interaction or not do much besides trigger her. I'd look to try the deck with a couple less interactions or a way to put your graveyard back into the deck. Things like Stinkweed Imp, with dredge 5, can add up pretty quickly.

Rooftop Storm + Gisa and Geralf

Satyr Wayfinder, Commune with the Gods are cheap inclusions.

Skullwinder -> Revive, cheaper and assyemtrical. Non creature body tho.

Noxious Revival is pretty handy.

I think Rot Farm Skeleton is too expensive compared to your other options.

Animate Dead, easier to cast and less conditional than Stitch Together, also allows you to pull from someone else's yard.

Life/Death, Exhume are also reanimation options.

Ashnod's Altar is good ramp with zombie tokens.

You may appreciate some draw sources. Phyrexian Arena, Dig Through Time, Treasure Cruise, and that whole lot.
