False Prophet Discussion

For anyone who may wonder about the answer, False Prophet must go to the graveyard from the battlefield for its ability to trigger. It will not trigger if the Prophet is put into the graveyard from any other zone, including the stack.

I'm curious to know if False Prophet's ability still happens even if he was countered on the stack and then went to the graveyard?
Thanks a ton!

Thanks for your feedback Grind! The idea about False Prophet is to have a mass exile option when being in disadvantage in terms of creatures. I would play him either when having no creatures on the battlefield or when having Viscera Seer (or another card that allows me to sacrifice creatures) in play to sacrifice all of my own creatures in response to False Prophet dying. Like this I still get the trigger effects and either my creatures back to hand or 3 damage per creature.

I am not sure about False Prophet as it boardwipes but you dont get advantage of keeping your commander and getting death triggers. I would lean toward your maybeboard cards wrath of god / day of judgement. And if you want to run exile removal then Swords to Plowshares is always great. Just my 0.02

Magus of the Disk is a definite maybe. As for the others, good cards one and all, but not for this deck. False Prophet has little control (I would want to be able to activate such an effect on my own terms, not at the whim of someone's lightning bolt). Plus, he exiles, and I wouldn't be able to bring them back. That's why I begrudgingly did not include Food Chain. Cataclysmic Gearhulk and Massacre Girl cost one mana more than I'd like to spend on such an effect (if I need to board wipe, it's because an opponent went wide early).
Targeted removal might work well, but if I used it, there are far better options in black or Golgari than white. Path to Exile is great in Stax or Death & Taxes - where the land bump does them no good - or mono-white or Sylesnia, where there's no red, black or blue for better targetted removal. Having said this, I'm a huge fan of Swords to Plowshares, but not, I don't think, for this deck.
As for the combo, it looks amazing. However, I forgot to mention at the beginning that I don't play combo decks. If either of the cards were something that I thought would fit this deck better than anything that's already there, I'd include either or both and potentially have the combo as a last resort game ender when it goes too long. But I have plenty of recursion, some of which is cheaper. So while I respect the competitive quality of the combo suggestion, I respectfully decline.
You are absolutely right about the rats. They're honestly in there because they're 2 CMC and unearth. They really do me no real good. I'm definitely not going for a discard theme here. I do, however, need some (probably more than I have, with or without the rats) CMC 2 or less creatures that fit into the reanimator theme. For that matter, I probably don't need Spore Frog either, but cutting it has the same problem.

Board wipes depends on your meta.if you are going to use Damnation effects why not use Magus of the Disk,False Prophet,Cataclysmic Gearhulk, Massacre Girl and the list goes on.
if you are going to play something play it on a creature unless you need to stop others.Path to Exile,Silence,Swords to Plowshares are a must in a Combo Oriented Meta than you need to answer a play or you lose on the spot.
Thing is that Karador is a slow deck that needs space and time to do its thing... Slowly.... if you meta is also a slow one then you have the automatic advantage.If not that is when you need stax pieces like the ones you mention Rotting Rats and Spelltithe Enforcer. But its either too specific or too little. 1 discard per player is nothing. Compare that to Mindslicer. 1 time and gg.You can play stuff but others are pretty much done. So either build a "discard" them to play many or Rotting Rats effects (i tried playing a similar karador deck i found it boring) or go for more wider effects.
Last thing i used to play karador for his value and recursion with strong creatures. But the moment i switched to Karmic Guide + reveilark Combo.... i was left speechless thats what power feels like . And it is reallly really budget. Look at my description in "How it wins" > "All the combo lines"

Azeworai Thanks for the recommendations.
Wait, Gary has 2 power? Well he's going in immediately.
I hadn't actually considered self mill, but I will experiment with it.
I've found that I often want a sac outlet on board, in case someone uses exile removal (or god forbid Merciless Eviction), but I will probably take out Blood Bairn in favor of the new Woe Strider from TBD.
I will have a look at my removal, but it's worked fine thus far.
You asked about how I add a card in several categories. It's quite simple, you just add several hashtags after the card like this:
1x Vindicate #Removal
1x Viscera Seer #2Power #SacOutlet
1x Yahenni, Undying Partisan #SacOutlet
1x Yawgmoth, Thran Physician #2Power #Discard #Draw #SacOutlet
Thanks again for taking the time to look through my list, and have a great day yourself!

Ah, a beloved commander of most. I myself toiled with a list for quite some time, so I have some recommendations, as well as menial ones.
For the ones unrelated to the deck, you have a typo of "probably" in the deck description, as "probaly." I merely point this out. My other note on formatting is that you may add a space to category titles. A athwart to "SacOutlet," try "Sac_Outlet." You also have two Karmic Guides, and Magus of the Wheels. And Ravenous Chupacabra. And Yawgmoth, Thran Physician... How did you do that?
As for the decklist, there are some cards in profuse I would at least try.
Protector of the Crown allows for many politics and defense, warding off much attacking due to the high toughness. Paired with cards such as Darksteel Plate, it can be difficult for some decks to interact with.
False Prophet is awesome. It comes back, with your profusion of sacrifice outlets is easily controllable, and leaves your board-state in the graveyard to inevitably return.
I don't much enjoy spells such as Thrill of Possibility or Cathartic Reunion, for they require cards in hand to do anything. If you don't have any, they are a horrible top-deck. I'd recommend Ransack the Lab in their lieu.
Selfless Spirit. I shall say no more.
Having additional reanimation outside of your commander is a cruciality above most. When Alesha starts costing, five, even seven mana, it's difficult for this deck to get back on its feet. Dread Return and Unburial Rites are great, even if they are to be milled over. Animate Dead is just powerful, Restoration Specialist pulls her weight, and Phyrexian Reclamation often keeps the deck going by itself. Lastly, Sun Titan is ridiculous. It recurs what is a necessity, does so immediately, can be cheated out with a reanimation spell. It is the best backup commander one could ask for. Best off, it does go infinite with Gift of Immortality and effects such as Goblin Bombardment. Bye-bye table.
Now, gaining life is important, and Gray Merchant of Asphodel is splendid.
With rummaging effects, self-mill becomes easy with Dredge cards. Stinkweed Imp and Golgari Thug are both lovely. One self-mill effect I've enjoyed is Shard of Broken Glass. A 4/2 first strike is difficult to block prosperously.
Categories and cards to consider ablating:
You have seven sacrifice outlets, most of which are easily brought back, but they don't stack well, whereat multiple in one given game are typically useless. Of these, Blood Bairn seems the most lacking. If you aren't to fain to cut one, you should know that Bloodthrone Vampire exists.
Black Market is a VERY slow card. It's five mana, doesn't do anything immediately, and requires additional stuff to happen to make it function. I don't enjoy it too much, but your choice.
Ravenous Bloodseeker has you discard a card without replacing it. Games of commander require cards in hand to proceed, and, as such, I don't believe this to be very powerful.
You have a lot of removal. A Lot. Whilst they are all great, I have a gripe with but one. Utter End is four mana to kill one thing. Sure it's an instant and sure it's exile, but it's a lot of mana. If you want to keep all of the removal, I'd at least try other options. Despark is fine, Chaos Warp hits all permanents with a cheaper cast, and Generous Gift is arguably more prominent than Vindicate.
If you would pardon the long comment, that is all of my input. Have a lovely day and happy reanimating!
