Don't forget about Cold-Eyed Selkie . Draw 7 is backbreaking and islandwalk is actually fairly relevant. Also my new finds have been anything that copies itself on attack or combat damage like Spawnwrithe or Nacatl War-Pride or myriad creatures.

I think Isareth the Awakener is also a cute way to get back a critical creature from the yard in the combat step.

Kruphix, God of Horizons also does work since this deck will be pretty mana hungry once volrath is on the field and it grants additional protection for volrath.

When I opened my first m20 booster pack, I pulled a Cavalier of Night . My first thought was putting it in a graveyard recursion/graveyard EDH theme deck. I never actually owned one in paper, so I was considering making one. Currently I would like the colors in Golgari or mono Black. Some commanders I considered were, Isareth the Awakener , Varina, Lich Queen , and Tasigur, the Golden Fang . Yes I know Tasigur includes blue, but still this commander is great. I know there are a lot more, and am hoping for some people to come by and suggest a few, graveyard gimmick, or recursion theme EDH commanders. Currently I do not have the budget for Meren or Ghoulcaller Gisa .

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.

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
