So I, like many of you, am sitting in a place of giddy excitement as I wait for my new Breed Lethality deck to arrive. I knew it was the one I wanted the very moment they were spoiled, and I was Vindicated to see it outselling even the much-touted Bromance (which is also a completely solid choice, along with everything but Yidris).

Anyway, as I sat waiting, I got to looking through my old cards, plucking out anything that looked particularly juicy for the new deck. My landbase is upper-mediocre for sure, and I still need to grab a few pricier staples (i.e. Archangel of Thune and Doubling Season), but I actually found a surprising number of cards which may totally merit a spot in the lauded 99.

Basically, what I'm hoping to get out of this thread is to pick a few other players' brains about how good my card choices are. If you see something that's like a "OMFG holy shit definitely put that in there," let me know and explain why. If you see anything that's like a "Wow, I maybe see what you were thinking, but that will honestly serve you no good at all," then do the same. With no further ado:

LANDS

-

- SORCERIES/INSTANTS

So yeah...if anyone can offer any reasons that any of the above cards would or wouldn't be good choices, I'm all ears. Budget is a concern (I already have all the cards on this list)), but I'm WAAAAY open to hearing better suggestions than the ones I made.

Atraxa is the tits, guys and girls. I haven't been this pumped for a new commander since Kaalia and Animar. Let's put our heads together and perfect this like I know we can.

Thank you for the suggestions, landofMordor! I currently have some recurring enchantment removal in the form of Devout Witness and High Priest of Penance, and combat tricks to protect my weenies such as Spirit Bonds, Reconnaissance, and Key to the City, but I will definitely consider Kami of Ancient Law and Kami of False Hope as additions. My main concern with Kami of False Hope is that if I recurred it with Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, it could easily die in that combat, so the only time I could prevent all combat damage would be during my own combat phase. However, Kami of False Hope does have some amazing art.

Thanks again for the suggestions!

Okay, massive overhaul here. I also realized like an idiot that I didn't actually keep track of everything I took out at the time I was doing this so the list will likely have a few holes. To sum up, I focused my deck much harder on making etb and death-based creatures. Several instants, sorceries, and enchantments were removed in exchange for Alesha-recurrable creatures that do ultimately the same thing, as well as just overall upgrades for some of the creatures and enchantments. I'm also in the process of putting a few more allies into the deck to make for some clustered effects triggering all at once off of etb, but I do not have all of them that I need at the moment such as Drana, Liberator of Malakir and I removed Resolute Blademaster in that line to be put back in once I do. This deck now hates flying, but I hopefully have more damage and control of the board overall. Anyway, here's the (to the best of my memory) outs:

Resolute Blademaster Swarm of Bloodflies Skeletal Grimace Skullclamp King Macar, the Gold-Cursed Rescue from the Underworld Charmbreaker Devils Ankle Shanker Knight of the White Orchid Butcher of the Horde Unburial Rites Disciple of Phenax Sin Collector Priest of the Blood Rite Mardu Ascendancy Marshal's Anthem Akoum Refuge Millikin Elder Cathar Graveblade Marauder

And here are the ins:

Plains Tainted Field Pilgrim's Eye Burnished Hart Stingscourger Hanweir Garrison Feldon of the Third Path Anarchist Karmic Guide Goldnight Commander Auramancer Knight-Captain of Eos Mother of Runes Gift of Immortality Rune-Scarred Demon Disciple of Bolas Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip Viscera Seer Archetype of Finality Noosegraf Mob Bala Ged Thief High Priest of Penance Duergar Hedge-Mage

Maybeboard:

Tortured Existence Tuktuk Scrapper Hanweir Battlements Vulturous Aven Curse of Chaos Mentor of the Meek Blade of the Bloodchief

I'll leave the acquireboard to be looked at to avoid making this monster of a post any longer. but they're all substantially useful cards if anyone would like to peruse it to help my transitions move more quickly. As always, suggestions, comments, possible combos are always welcome and greatly appreciated. I'm extremely indecisive with my decks and constantly finding 'better' cards than what I have. Amd I now have a mostly new maybeboard since most of my maybes have been finally added in a grueling but rewarding process of staring at my broken down deck for hours making decisions.
