K1ngr3ese on Esper Reanimator

1 day ago

Thanks! I do enjoy piloting reanimator decks. Mardu is my competitive version currently but esper is quite powerful. I put this together orginally to showcase reanimator synergy with Fabricate. That is now being reworked because fabricate colors are Green, White, Black which lack a discard mechanic outside of gate.

With regard to gearhulks. I build this to minimize the downside of G-PG (make creatures 4/4) Noxious is always good (i run him side)it loses 1 power to scarab and gift. cataclysmic can be useful depending on the matchup and loses 1 toughness. torrential is definitely problematic as long as you find interesting things to flash back, it loses 1 power 2 toughness. This was why i had smaller creatures with cool abilities. The big plus is that you can run Refurbish.

Examples of interesting instants to flashback that are NOT staples...

Time to Reflect. Consign / Oblivion. Failure / Comply. Siren's Ruse. Acrobatic Maneuver. Disappearing Act. Essence Extraction. Farm / Market. Ritual of Rejuvenation. Start / Finish. Tragic Lesson. Pull from Tomorrow. Failed Inspection. Insidious Will... i could keep going but you can see how esper can make things interesting. Nox in play, acrobatic maneuver on nox, draw, reanimate torrential, flashback acrobatic maneuever on nox again, draw a card = lols? These are all instants to make use of torrential. Go nuts!

Just remember you can always board into 1 of 3 different modes. Mode 1... creatures (like the deck i have built). Mode 2... control (like the deck you are intending to make) and finally mode 3... mill with The Scarab God+ Fraying Sanity+ Fleet Swallower+ Embalmer's Tools ...reanimated creatures are zombies. Could be interesting! Hope my passion for reanimator has been insightful lol. Like i said before i enjoy piloting these decks.Esper is very versatile.

I would recommend Alchemist's Refuge, Aethersnatch, Gather Specimens, Insidious Will, Kefnet's Last Word, Confiscation Coup, and Dack Fayden. I played a deck similarly with Mizzix (It is now time to put on your 3-D glasses). You may also want to consider Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar to say opponents creatures after you steal them, or sac your own so they can't be manipulated.

Rex_JB24Good catch with Cancel! Disallow is definitely a better card! So for now Im gonna trim 2x Depths of Desire for 2x Pia Nalaar and 2x Spell Swindle for 2xMaverick Thopterist. I can adjust those numbers after some play test. Possibly Switch out Anointed Procession for Insidious Will?

Hey there! Fun idea! With the new format and all, I just can't see the 4-drop slot going back to Glimmer of Genius... I know the combo with Torrential Gearhulk is good and all, but you have Hieroglyphic Illumination, Commit / Memory, Insidious Will or any of the amazing, cheaper spells there are? I just think it's time has past, from what I've been hearing from various content creators

Good luck! Hope this gives you something to think about!

There may be a few more in my binder I need and didnt list. Ifnits listed I need it.

So, as recommended, I have adjusted the number of Illusionist's Stratagem's to three. I have also added more control into the deck by including Insidious Will, and Censor.

I think this style of deck could be fun if you added more of a pirating theme than a pirate theme. "All of your creatures are belong to me" type deal. Admiral Brass already steals people's cards when you hit with a lot of pirates, so you really could take that and run. Captivating Crew is the first pirate that comes to mind for that, but you also have flavorful cards like Blatant Thievery and you have other Control Magic effects available to you, as well as other fun cards like Slave of Bolas and Insurrection effects. You already have quite a few cards that are good for that strategy, so it might be fun. Also, with Arcane Adaptation you can run other non-pirates more freely and still get brass' triggers, such as Gonti, Lord of Luxury. One last idea is cards to take peoples' spells, such as Insidious Will, or Praetor's Grasp? I think it could be fun, though your current list still looks pretty solid

Thanks for the upvote on my Arjun deck!

I have a few suggestions you may want to consider:

Baral, Chief of Compliance, and Arcane Melee both provide cost reductions for your spells. Sapphire Medallion would do much more work for you than Sky Diamond. Baral also turns all of your counter spells into cantrips.

Being mono coloured, you don't need fixing, but Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse would help thin your deck along with the Myriad Landscape you already have. Any of the Bant, Esper, or Grixis panoramas would also help with this.

Disallow, Arcane Denial, Baral's Expertise, and Insidious Will offer some more good counters and other control.

Memory Erosion and Startled Awake can also help with the milling theme. However, I caution against focusing too much on that. People don't like being milled and will often choose to deal with it by removing you from the game.
