Cainslayer1993 You can sacrifice him twice with the undying, adding 4 to your mana pool. You use those 4 to bring Geralf's Messenger back, then do it over and over again until all opponents lose.

I already have Gravecrawler coming in the mail soon. Along with Geralf's Messenger and Blood Artist.Starting to find that running 17 lands isn't quite enough to get a consistent opening hand. Either that or I'm unlucky.

ChiefBell on Viable Budget Decks in the ...

In this thread: people suggest decks they don't play can be built on a budget. People who actually play those decks point out why that's not true.

On topic:

Simic miracle grow is fun. You run Delver of Secrets  Flip, Quirion Dryad and counter spells. The dryad grows.

Izzet delver is doable. Sure it's not tier 1 but it's totally not bad.

Rakdos kiln fiend is possible. It's basically Kiln Fiend and red pump spells, of which there are a fair few, along with burn spells. Splash black sometimes for an infect win.

Mono black midrange. Vampire Nighthawk, Gatekeeper of Malakir, Geralf's Messenger, kill spells.

Azorius tempo and fliers. Judge's Familiar and efficient 2 mana fliers with counter spells.

I didnt have the time yesterday to say all i wanted so here we go(i see this deck as a spirit tribal deck)

  1. Necrotic Ooze + Geralf's Messenger and Lingering Tormentor dosnt work. Why ? they are trigger abilities and not active so here i would put Bloodghast and Horobi, Death's Wail for more control vs equip aura and thing like that and we got 2 more spirit(keep the ooze)

  2. Deathgreeter and Dross Harvester could be remplace by a Sangromancer and Bloodchief Ascenssion. Why?(again) drossharvester need a dead almost every turn to be good and can screw you up.

  3. We have enough mass-resurrection so balthor can be switch to someone like Kyoki, Sanity's Eclipse can give some control and an hard hiter

  4. And lastly for creature we put a Kokusho, the Evening Star in the place of Soldevi Adnate or a tutor to balance our creature... for obvious reason.

  5. For the shit ton of fetch u get ill keep the transmute one Demonic Tutor and ill get Increasing Ambition BOOM 3 in 1 and u get 3 place Grave Pact Crypt Incursion and Dictate of Erebos.

6 . Finally it will boost your mana pool but raise the over all mana cost we can switch Carnival of Souls for a Caged Sun.

Hope this can help and for the price i didnt chek it if i put my modification thing ill do tomorrow same hours.

P.S. maybe a Door of Destinies and a Bonehoard.

sounds like something i made for a friend during ISD standard except we were using Mutilate Mikaeous and zombies ( Gravecrawler / Geralf's Messenger. Maybe i'll fiddle around with it again for the hell of it again sometime. I do love me some Aristocrats

Alright, Fwi. I may be your friend, but you know how ruthless I am when it comes to these things. I'm apologizing in advance, but I have to be merciless.

You have no two drops, and there are plenty cards out there that cost BB. One that comes to mind is Bloodghast, because he just keeps on coming back for more, but for a budget option, I would choose Gatekeeper of Malakir, and for super budget, Keeper of the Dead, Scepter of Fugue, or Vampire Hexmage (especially the Hexmage - 2 mana, destroy target planeswalker). I'd replace some of your less reliable expensive cards with 2 devotion like Keepsake Gorgon and King Macar, the Gold-Cursed.

You don't have any triggers for Agent of the Fates. I would highly recommend Geralf's Messenger for the devotion and the fact that is a totally awesome card.

You also need some more removal. Try the super-budget, super-awesome Victim of Night. It works really well. I'd try it in place of 1 or 2 Rescue from the Underworld.

Hope this helped.
