Isareth the Awakener Discussion

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.

RavnicaCommanders on Scarabs U/B Zombies

So first off I just want to say sorry if you have a budget and I recommend some cards outside of price range, but here are some suggestions from me:

Cards to take out

  1. Murder I get that you say that there aren't many planeswalkers in your meta, but sometimes just having the option to hit them on a card that is the same mana cost and does everything else Murder does is just a better option like Hero's Downfall or like you said you fight voltron decks like Zurgo Helmsmasher a card like Vraska's Contempt is a better removal card as it exiles or only one more colorless mana.
  2. Isareth the Awakener while she is a reanimator, she also exiles the cards when they leave the battlefield which can hurt if you reanimate something you don't want to lose.
  3. Lotleth Giant - sounds like a good card when you first look at it but it requires set up and costs 7 mana. Not ideal.
  4. Necrotic Wound - same with the Lotleth Giant , it takes too much set up and there are better spot removal or board wipes
  5. Open the Graves now here me out on this one, this card is really good in a deck that wants to sacrifice their own creatures, but this looks to be more token focused which means that majority of your creatures that die don't have Open the Graves to trigger.
  6. Bontu's Monument it is a good card but it looks like you are going to try and cast more non-creature spells than creature spells
  7. What to put in?

    So what do we put in? We have a few options based on what you like:
  8. Board wipes like Life's Finale or if you wanna get expensive Damnation
  9. Paradox Haze this card is a fun one of mine as it allows The Scarab God to have his beginning of upkeep trigger twice dealing hefty damage.
  10. Phyrexian Altar this card can win as it gives you deck infinite combos with Gravecrawler if you want the deck to go into that direction
  11. Tutors Tutors Tutors! cards like Sidisi, Undead Vizier or Diabolic Tutor are always musts in black decks as it can help you find answers or wincons when the situation calls for it.
  12. These are just a few ideas I have! If you want any more ideas please let me know!

Think about something that can cause reanimation. Maybe Isareth the Awakener to trigger ETB explores from the battlefield?

BlackDeegs on When There's No More Room in Hell...

Hey there,

As a forever fan of black decks, zombies, skeletons, and the classic Death Baron I like your general deck idea here. Some suggestions I would make would be to add a Cabal Stronghold for late game. Once you hit 5 swamps it can give you a boost which you could use to your mana pool for reassembling your Reassembling Skeleton , Gutterbones , and for Isareth the Awakener .

I would also cut the creeping chill as I don't think they add much value to your deck. Replacing them with Duress from your sideboard which I think would serve you better in preventing some counterplay to your board.

I would also suggest cutting at least one Graveyard Marshal , probably two (i know he is great but here me out) and replacing him with a Vona's Hunger . Because your deck is so permeant heavy and such low converted mana cost I think you could really end up forcing players to sacrifice half their creatures consistently with it, and also I feel as though Liliana, Untouched By Death is undermined by Graveyard Marshal , so while you want his ability you would likely be using him as a 3/2 zombie to buff with Deathbaron.

The Void of Mass Confusion and Too* Many (Key?)Words ;)

Sweet deck, young planeswalker; it seems most formidable. I have a couple thoughts about ways you can totally max out the value in every card in the deck!

Basically, I think you want to maximize the chances that all the creatures you have on the field are working together.

Swap Out These 14 Cards -3x Vampire Nighthawk -2x Serra Angel -3x Dub -1x Primevals' Glorious Rebirth -2x On Serra's Wings -1x Zetalpa, Primal Dawn -2x Llanowar Elves

For these badboys: +1x Healer's Hawk +2x Lone Rider  Flip +1x Fauna Shaman +2x Thalia's Lancers +1x Isareth the Awakener +2x Sylvan Caryatid +1x Birds of Paradise +2x Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim +1x Vona, Butcher of Magan +1x Aryel, Knight of Windgrace

In general, you want to maximize your chances of game-winning synergy. I think these changes will help smooth out the mana curve, provide reliability to the central combos of the deck, and will add versatility to the things your deck can do in 'edge' cases.

Obviously these are just suggestions to help get your brain buzzin'. Here are some other zesty critters with keyword abilities: Pestilent Spirit Would work well with a more control-y and less aggro-y creature build Ochran Assassin (with a critical mass of creatures already on the battlefield, this could win lots of games) Elenda, the Dusk Rose Gifted Aetherborn

Another cool family of cards to consider is equipment. Odiric and knight exemplar could combo really well with Danitha Capashen, Paragon , Puresteel Paladin , Basilisk Collar , Loxodon Warhammer , and other powerful equipment.

Have fun sorcering! Your Bro

I've only been playing Magic for like a week but what about Isareth the Awakener to cast creatures from your graveyard, plus she's legendary and has deathtouch and only costs 3 mana. And Revival//Revenge, you won't be able to use the 2nd ability unless u splash white but Revival allows u to cast 3 mana cards from your graveyard for 2 mana straight onto the battlefied. So if u draw a revival and u have a baron in your graveyard u can put it on the battlefield for 2 mana only. Pretty cool but idk im just new
