Hour of Eternity Discussion

I've also been playing with Hour of Eternity in case the game has gone long and many clones are in the yard.

I've seen some variants of this in MTGO. The key card from most of those lists you are missing is Hour of Eternity. For 5 mana, you can bring back MM as a 7/7. Assuming you have flipped treasure map, that usually is game over if it resolves. If you include that card though, you are also going to want some ways to get MM into your graveyard. if you are willing to stretch the budget, Search for Azcanta Flip would be your best option.

rottenoysters hadn't really considered it...what did you have in mind?
Since its more of a flood the board deck instead of a token deck not sure what I would put in. I could consider a copy or 2 of Hour of Eternity for some resiliency.

Hi Dr_Jay. I think the deck is sweet and looks really fun to play, just created my proxies to start playtesting it a bit with friends :p
I am also taking into consideration the deck that Dev, from Strictly Better Mtg (the youtube channel), has shown. If you haven't seen the video yet I would recommend you to do it.
Anyway I would like to ask you some questions.
How does the deck handle fliers? (I'm obviously thinking about Glorybringer) It looks really difficult to stop a deck with lots of fliers or just a Aggro red deck with Glorybringer at the end of the curve.
How do u see Hour of Eternity or Open Into Wonder in the deck? (X) cost cards are really good with Inspiring Statuary and Growing Rites of Itlimoc . For example, I think that Walking Ballista would be a great addition as it can be either an early blocker or a win-con in late game if the Rites are fliped.
And finally I aggre with RagingBuddha, I am often in the situation where I have couples of Statuary or Angel of Inventions in opening hands, which is pretty bad. However, playing more Trophy Mage would slow the thing down... It's a difficult choice.
Thank you for sharing the deck and keep us updated with news and the playtest :D

Hi, thanks a lot for your comment, I Appreciate your thoughts.
I used to play Hour of Eternity in main, the thing with it is: it's way too expensive for what it yields.for 5 mana I get one to two creatures, depending on Anointed Procession. River's Rebuke in contrast gives a complete board wipe for one turn. This pretty much seals the game if I have at least 3 tokens out. (same amount of mana with Hour of eternity gives at most 2 4/4 creatures) I could pack more embalm effects into the deck, but then I would lose many Draw/Discard synergies to generate Tokens. I will test Hour of Eternity some more, but I still think River's Rebuke is stronger.
I thought about Fumigate but it's double W mana cost is actually pretty expensive. I used to play Settle the Wreckage and I often just simply couldn't afford to play two white mana. Then I just cut it. It didn't seem too much of a drawback. And again River's Rebuke does the board sweep job pretty well. But Fumigate could indeed prove more useful in aggro matches where the creatures mana cost max at 4. I will consider it.
Thanks a lot for your thoughts! :)

I'm greedy, I almost want Hour of Eternity in the main for fun.
I feel like you need a board sweep in your side, like Fumigate.
Mabye Lookout's Dispersal in the side for control matchups.

Sorry to hear about the Spirits. I'm still interested in a trade if you are, though, for some lesser-priority wants, 1x of:
...which is about $2.7 value. Vona, Butcher of Magan, Vanquisher's Banner, and Sanctum Seeker are about $8.2 value, so I'd ask for $4 cash or so in addition to trade value, if you can swing that. Feel free to PM and counter-offer me (:

Ive run mardu gearhulk reanimator for a while now and have been looking into grixis for a few weeks now. This looks pretty solid...
My opinion...Lands...Drop a Spirebluff Canal for a 3rd Evolving Wilds....Sorcery...Drop Strategic Planning altogether. Cathartic Reunion is simply better bc you get to choose what cards go into the GY, you wont accidently dump a lilly or critical land drop. If you arent fond of Cathartic go 3 cathartic 3 charts...Creatures...I am love the use of Gonti, Lord of LuxuryandHostage Taker. I think The Locust God should be out or in the SB for an agro matchup, his loot is too expensive and during play i think you would rather reanimate a creature that has control attached to it or Champion of WitsI would add another Hostage Taker or Noxious Gearhulk. With all the looting effects i see him being... lackluster. I am a HUGE fan of Combustible Gearhulk in reanimator because his ETB is fantastic either way. I would give up 1 The Scarab God and 2 - 4 Champion of Wits to make room. The first strike is amazing for defense ontop of the crazy etb....Instants...I think Censor is weaker than Fatal Push. Since any reanimator deck needs a bit of time to set up fatal push can keep your opponents board pretty clean and doesnt give an option to cast through. Maybe keep censor a 1 of so your opponent will think to play around it, but fatal push would be more effective against agro.Lightning Strike vs Abrade i prefer abrade in match one 100%. Bust those new flip artifacts and blades before they become a problem and if they arent running any artifacts you can swap them to be more agressive with lightning strike.Spell Swindle neat! But i think its weak in the deck. Id remove in favor of a 3rd abrade\lightning strike and a 3rd supreme will/4th fatal push(if you keep 1 censor)...Planeswalker...I dont like Chandra, Torch of Defiance here. Her exile affect hurts the theme, and i dont see the mana as necessary, the removal is nice but you should have enough given the control in the list, and the ult is just that. This would be a good one to drop for The Scarab God or a 4th Noxious Gearhulk or a 4th Liliana, Death's Majesty
I think these changes should help with consistency And raw power, keeps the curve higher so each reanimation is a bomb.
...Side notes...Consider Razaketh, the Foulblooded and Hour of Eternity... razaketh can enable a cycle of gearhulk ETBs when you have a liliana out (cast etb, sac to razaketh for reanimate card, reanimate etb). He is also an amazing target for noxious gearhulk lifegain... clutch! Then reanimate him! Hour is really good at 5 and 7 mana but 3 blue can be harsh.
Anyway, hope this helps! I love reanimator and want to see this deck do well bc it is SUPER fun to pilot.
