Try Impromptu Raid. Its a small risk, but could be very dangerous to your opponents if it pays off

Ok, so I'm a fairly major competitive discard lover, and there are some fantastic tools in black and black green you should look at. First and foremost Collective Brutality- It protects you in the earlier turns and fuels the yard in a really efficient way. Lotleth Troll and Zombie Infestation could similarly provide earlt game blockers. You have two options deciding graveyard creatures, big hasty win game now creatures, or creatures with an etb so large it tilts the board in your favour. Pick one or the other, as it will lend the deck consistancy. I'd either go all in on gaea's revenge and Craterhoof Behemoth/Timbermare or Massacre Wurm/. If you go for etb creatures Impromptu Raid is worth a look, although it might still be slow. Vengevine decks exist in this format. Unburial Rites is traditional for ressurection and a lot of combo decks run it. Delirium Skeins and Raven's Crime can help soak up your opponents control package and leave room for duress in the sideboard.
On that note, acceleration. Pentad Prism leaves mana open for instants and accelerates to 4 mana t2. Sakura-Tribe Elder will get lands and be sheoldredable should you need to hard cast stuff. Elves of Deep Shadow will help soak up creature removal before you spend multiple cards to get Path to Exiled, and get those key cards cast.Card advantage tools like Phyrexian Arena will be neccesary when an opponent has a hand of Negate/Cancel/Chronomaton/Path to Exile.

Hi again all =)
This time i have a very specific request of help for all of us here:I'll play in a GPQ at my LGS this weekend and i kinda have to turn into an Impromptu Raid xD
The following is the list i wanted to bring, since i think the meta is more suited for Infect than for Bant Control. Now i wonder, if i should squeeze in an Overgrown Tomb in the mana base for some black sideboard options, like discard? I already have a interesting card mainboard, that could be casted of it (Postmortem Lunge) although the black source isnt really neccessary otherwise.

It feels pretty light on things to do turns 1-3 -you considered Prophetic Prism, Birds of Paradise, Tooth and Nail, or other value cards to Sneak Attack/Impromptu Raid out, like Sundering Titan/Woodfall Primus? Eldritch Evolution is another useful tool to look at. A stomping ground and overgrown tomb would let you cast most of the creatures easier. Faithless Looting is sub-par in most non graveyard decks, and unless you're going all in on the footsteps Night's Whisper will probably work better.

Athraithe thank you for you thoughtful suggestions. I would like to say that with this deck a lot of time it produces massive amount of mana, so my wife is able to cast the big fatties, secondly Mayael is only used slightly with this unique build, Sneak Attack, Impromptu Raid both drop a giant fatty that might have annihilator and damage peoples board states then with one of the shuffle in guys I will get the graveyard back. This deck doesn't flood the battle field with creatures unless you Primal Surge, I like Gruul Ragebeast I think that's a good choice. And Rogue's Passage is very useful I will likely add them. The deck makes a ton of mana so hand casting is always a option.

Cloudshift does cause cards to re-enter face up, rather than flipping them, the calssic mono white blink deck runs akroma (or sometimes Sagu Mauler so it can Cloudshift / Ghostway into it. I seriously considered a Bant manifest deck when it came out which aimed to manifest some of the bigger beasties (Clone Shell+Impromptu Raid+manifest+ scry, but couldn't get it to work. Good luck though!

Impromptu Raid reveals Xenagos, God of Revels, who enters because it's technically a creature, but once it resolves if the devotion cost isn't met it doesn't technically become a creature... so does it still get sac'ed at EOT?

I just now stumbled across Danny West playing Mayael on youtube in a Vs. Series. He played a lot of Impromptu Raid, which seemed fun. I don't know if he had Reya Dawnbringer, but the two of those together seem like a ball!
Thoughts on I-Raid?
