Footsteps of the Goryo Discussion

Heretic_Dragoon on Bladewing Reanimator (Budget EDH ~$37)

theLeyzin I love what you're doing here. I do think, however you should include a few other cheaper reanimation spells for back up in case Bladewing's CMC gets too high.Exhume, Animate Dead, Phyrexian Reclamation and Footsteps of the Goryo, are some cheaper options to consider. I'd say add Necromancy too, but I didn't realize it went up. Definite +1

Hey, i'm having doubts here, how do you use de Griselbrand or another big creature like that, if Footsteps of the Goryo does not give haste? Wouldn't be nice to have something like Expedite or change the Footsteps of the Goryo for the reanimate or Dawn of the dead (for legacy) or Unburial Rites for modern.

Here is a primer I made, I have a friend playing it and he wants to finish building it but it has Goryo's Vengeance, which my main deck I play but it's not a cheap card anymore. However! It's little brother Footsteps of the Goryo isn't expensive. Gishath, Sun's Avatar and Nezahal, Primal Tide are both pretty insane for their interactions with it , and the other haste Dino. But this is a primer it's not set in stone, plenty of room to toy with. Hopefully that gives you some ideas and hope for your modern Dinos :)

You actually gave me a thought of Footsteps of the Goryo to reanimate and "Flash" Hulk.

SynergyBuild, thank you for all the suggestions! Goblin Lore is really sweet, the discarding at random has been really fun with tibalt and digs deeper than my other looters. I have actually had a lot of success with the Obzedat, Ghost Councils as the opponent normally has to deal with them immediately before it gets out of hand. It's the best target for Footsteps of the Goryo and it's an easy discard choice. Also, Iname, Death Aspect can filter them all out of the deck, thinning it and letting us draw more of our bombs.

I agree with your Duress suggestion. It has been underwhelming at best, (Despise would be a little better) but I could fit in something else.

For the mana base, I have had pretty good success with just 20. Since there is so much looting, I usually never have trouble hitting 5+ mana. I do like the idea of going up on white sources and increasing Lingering Souls as that card does work.

Thanks again for the tips! It has been surprisingly fun to pilot and the budget Through the Breach/Goryo's Vengeance feel has been awesome for 60 bucks. Let me know how you edit yours and the results! :D

If the creature dies the cards go to the graveyard seperately and are no longer melded, Footsteps of the Goryo would only be able to return one of them, not both. Remember that Bruna, the Fading Light only returns another creature when it is cast, not when it enters the battlefield, so it won't trigger if you reanimate it with Footsteps of the Goryo.

So you meld Bruna, the Fading Light with Gisela, the Broken Blade at the beginning of your end step. Footsteps of the Goryo only kills the creature it returned at the end of your turn and as Bruna, the Fading Light and Gisela, the Broken Blade melded, the card you return doesn't exist anymore so the effect doesn't happen
