Whenever Isareth the Awakener attacks, you may pay . When you do, return target creature card with converted mana cost X from your graveyard to the battlefield with a corpse counter on it. if that creature would leave the battlefield, exile it instead of putting it anywhere else.

Under “ETB Abuse”, we gotsta put at least Guardian Project , Impact Tremors , Purphoros, God of the Forge , and Warstorm Surge . A really cool, crazy underrated/unknown/janky blink payoff is Isareth the Awakener . The trick is if you exile the creature, it gets exiled, but returns to the battlefield.

Hey bro, I made the Isareth the Awakener deck for you, with this link

Uh... Corpse Counters?

Let me know what you think!

ZendikariWol I attack with Isareth the Awakener to bring you back to play.

But seriously, I never considered counter eating for Isareth. The good thing about her that Chainer, Dementia Master doesn't do is the creatures stay alive even if she does, but she's also in colors that don't allow you to repeatedly abuse her ability using repeated combat steps. I think she'd probably work better in a BR reanimater build with lots of deal damage triggers.

Wondering if you could make a Isareth the Awakener EDH. I wanted to make a commander out of her, but wanted to know what other people would make it like, and you also make great decks so that would be great if you build a prototype or something out of her

Isareth the Awakener Recursion on a stick, seems like it could have potential

I 100% agree with cutting Zealots. I understand it feels bad on T8 when you run out of gas, but there are plenty of other ways to generate Card Advantage without drawing cards. Graveyard Marshal , Midnight Reaper , and Isareth the Awakener come to mind although none of them are "vampires" so prolly not the most optimal fit. Maybe Oathsworn Vampire could fit a similar role... MAYBE

Ill-Gotten Inheritance is an excellent draft card but isn't really constructed playable.

Prison Realm would be an excellent upgrade over Luminous Bonds It takes creatures with passive abilities completely off the board has the added benefit of hitting walkers and the scry can help setup your next draw.

Radiant Destiny and Vanquisher's Banner are both solid Anthem Effects you could look at. Likewise Unbreakable Formation if cast as a Sorcery leaves counters behind.

All in all there is only so far you can take a deck like this and I would be careful investing too much cash-ola. The deck seems to be suffering from a bit of an identity crisis.

What store are you doing the FNM thing at? Maybe i could swing by.

Trainyaj, it's around 50% to have one creature but more like 80% to have one or more (assuming 24 creatures).

Hexaflexagon, that's a lot of 4 drops. Storrev, Devkarin Lich could be a Isareth the Awakener and Despark might work in place of Vraska's Contempt . Not saying they are better just your curve might thank you. Dryad Greenseeker or Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip could be a nice fit for this deck as early plays that both let you hit land drops and accrue CA. Call me crazy but Bounty Agent might even be a relevant card this season with lyra, niv, search, baby bolas, landing, feather and zombie gods.
