In any deck that likes to reanimate I highly suggest Viscera Seer and Carrion Feeder as well as Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat . Birthing Pod is also extremely helpful to find what you need and also helps get things in your yard.

How do you feel about infinite combos? There are a few of them with karmic guide and two of them that do with Karmic Guide also work with Sun Titan (they all also require a free sac outlet) Reveillark is one that works with guide and not titan, but is very good at reanimating on its own. Saffi Eriksdotter combos with guide, titan, and reveillark and is good for protecting things you want to stay on board. Fiend Hunter combos with guide and titan and is just an all around amazing card. If you like these I have a few more cards to suggest for more easily enabling these combos, but if not I totally get it. Not everyone wants to be a degenerate lol.

I dunno how much you are willing to spend on cards, but Survival of the Fittest is incredibly strong as well.

I see that your maybeboard has additional reveillark and friends cards, but is missing Fiend Hunter . It infinite combos with a sac outlet and either sun titan or karmic guide. It can also be used as a way to permanently exile with a sac outlet by in response to your etb trigger you sacrifice it so its ltb trigger happens first.

I also highly suggest Boonweaver Giant + Pattern of Rebirth ( and Academy Rector to find pattern easier) and Protean Hulk since both can be used to get your entire combo on board.

I have a karador deck that uses these to great effect and is currently ranked 4 out of 30 some in my local league. The combo is written out in my deck description if you want to take a look.

I'm digging the invincible and destroy all mashed together. Creates strong board control and allows you to swing uncontested.

Fist, I've noticed you're running 46 lands, which is quite a few. I think you could cut down to 38 very easily, especially if you cut a few of the larger CMC spells in favor of cheaper alternatives.

So what would I spend those 8 land slots on? Tutors and ramp.

Enlightened Tutor Open the Armory will both help you find Darksteel Plate or Worldslayer

Weathered Wayfarer or Expedition Map tutor you to your special lands. Tithe can help you with card advantage.

Serenity could be a hot include too for more control. Porphyry Nodes works in a similar vein for creatures and probably combos better with your deck. Planar Collapse is another cheap wiper that can clear the board for you.

Knight of the Holy Nimbus works surprisingly well here too.

I don't think you actually want All Is Dust for this deck! Your commander flipped is a white permanent, and sacrifice goes through indestructible! One of the lower cost mass destruction ( Porphyry Nodes / Planar Collapse ) could easily fit this slot if you didn't use it to replace some plains. Fiend Hunter is also an excellent choice, as it lets you reuse ETB effects by wiping the board, or gives you spot removal on an opponents problem creature.

Not a fan of Omen Machine here either. Pretty expensive for a stax type piece, would much rather see Aven Mindcensor for flash blowouts + beats or more wipes or Spirit of the Labyrinth to keep draw-hate in your list.

Emeria Shepherd Adarkar Valkyrie and Palisade Giant could all be lower CMC creatures to smooth over your early game. Soltari Visionary could give some extra control elements, while Samurai of the Pale Curtain could help against graveyard strategies. Dust Elemental lets you reset your ETB creatures or can be flashed in at EOT before yours to prepare for a board wipe. Even Serene Master could be good for early game to help you get more to mid game!

Have you considered Fiend Hunter type effects? Doing the perma-exile trick 4 times before your untap with a single Cloudshift seems pretty great to me!

Spirits on Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH

Hi weezel,

I was getting pretty upset last week, when I saw God-Eternal Kefnet and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries then I saw the Leonin Relic-Warder + Animate Dead , I abuse him with Oblivion Ring in other decks, Brago, the Banisher $50 EDH with Reveillark and Alesha, Boros' Crusade $50 EDH with Fiend Hunter , but this one BLEW my mind, it's so simple, good on it's own, and doesn't need any off-synergy cards!

Sounds like your having great success with this type of build! When T2-T4 good ol' Buried Alive is the back-up plan, in pretty good shape. He's the Master of Cruelties should never show mercy! If they winning on T7 that's pretty good too, no fun in dragging the game out past T5!

Agreed Hatred is just too much of a life commitment, even when casting it on a Lifelink creature, the initial burden of life is too much, Leonin Relic-Warder is far more value as an alternative win-con! I always find it strange that people fear Kaalia of the Vast , sit down at table with Kess, Dissident Mage , Prossh, Skyraider of Kher , and Derevi, Empyrial Tactician , it's wrong evaluation that Kaalia of the Vast is the highest threat, even if I resolve a Avacyn, Angel of Hope early.

Sneak Attack doesn't get me a Buried Alive so it's not as useful, in many cases (without a Razaketh, the Foulblooded or Rune-Scarred Demon ) for example. Sneak Attack needs other synergistic cards to be truly effective (unless you have a Razaketh, the Foulblooded )

no offense but this deck is far from the power level of modern.

lets start with Reaper King . this has multiple problems. the first is that you have no way of producing green or black mana, which means it'll cost you a minimum of 7 mana to cast. that is incredibly expensive by modern standards. a card costing that much generally needs to win you the game immediately after it resolves. the 2nd problem is that it is entirely dependent on Arcane Adaptation before the reaper has any effect at all, and you have no way to tutor or draw the enchantment.

in modern, a deck needs to be able to consistently win turn 4, or have lots of interaction (cards that in some way stop the opponent, such as discard effects, removal spells, or counterspells). this deck can't win fast, and your only interaction is Fiend Hunter . im not counting the reaper, for reasons already outlined in the first paragraph.

if you want to build a deck based around Reaper King , i would suggest you make the deck 5 colors so you can cast it for its lowest possible cost of 5, and that you use some sort of mana ramp so that you can cast it earlier than turn 5, as well as color fix. you'd also want to use creatures with the "changeling" ability, since they count as all creature types.

multimedia on Teysa Karlov Sac them all

Hey, this is a good start, but I think you can expand on the idea of "sac them all" :)

If price is a concern then consider cutting Teferi's Protection ? It can clear a lot of price for more card interactions. Protection is a good card, but it's not worth $50 for a single card, taking up a third of the budget...

Budget cards ($1-$2 or less each) to consider adding:

If you like some of these suggestions I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

GhostChieftain on Karador EDH Combo

Have you considered Fiend Hunter ? It goes inf with Sun Titan and Karmic Guide . It can be used to permanently exile a creature as long as you have a sac outlet. You can use it to protect a creature you want to keep on the board before you wrath. You can use it to get a second etb trigger off any of your creatures. You could also even be heckin lame and use it as was intended and just exile an opponents creature temporarily. It is an amazing piece in my Karador deck.
