Jarad's Orders Discussion
1 week ago
I have a deck based around The Mimeoplasm that has a general strategy very similar to this deck. I noticed that this deck doesn't have a lot of ways to get stuff into your graveyard. I assume you'll want to use Sidisi as much as you can, so try to add spells that play toward her ability as much as possible. There are two basic ways to do this: random milling and direct placement. You can take a chance and use spells that throw ("mill") random cards into your graveyard, like Tome Scour (which you have), Memory Sluice, Chill of Foreboding, Increasing Confusion, Dream Twist, Dampen Thought, Hermit Druid, or Traumatize (Be careful using this one on yourself. You lose half your library but Sidisi will only give you one zombie, since all the cards went there at the same time).
While that method is quick and easy, I found that I prefer a more dependable approach, to get just what I want into my graveyard without wasting any of the other cards. I prefer to use cards like Jarad's Orders, Necromancer's Stockpile, Grisly Salvage, Buried Alive, Lotleth Troll, Entomb, Taigam's Scheming, Fauna Shaman, Survival of the Fittest, Sultai Soothsayer, and Sultai Ascendancy. While not all of these trigger Sidisi (like the ones that make you discard from your hand), I think the control of what goes into your graveyard is worth it.
Once the creatures go into your graveyard and Sidisi does her thing, those creatures are just wasting away in a pile on the corner of the table. Why not use spells to bring them back? Spells like Eternal Witness, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Animate Dead, Beacon of Unrest, Exhume, Stitch Together, Vigor Mortis, Dread Return, Living Death, Reanimate, and Victimize can be used to get your creatures back into play. Havengul Lich lets you cast creatures striaght from the graveyard, and he's a zombie. You could even throw in The Mimeoplasm as a reanimator if you're feeling creative.
Sorry, I know this is a lot of information but I hope you find some of it useful. I know I'm suggesting a lot of cards without telling you what to take out, so if you would like advice with that, let me know. Feel free to take a glance at my zombie-themed deck (Mortuus Viventium) and my Mimeoplasm deck (The Creature Blender) if you want.

Dredge, and lots of it. if you're playing this kind of deck, you don't need to track down Reanimate or Entomb, although either are helpful. However, you will need much dredge. Life from the Loam,Golgari Thug, Buried Alive, Hermit Druid, Stinkweed Imp, Golgari Grave-Troll, Jarad's Orders, Unearth, Exhume, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Nighthowler, and Shadowborn Demon, to name a few.

Does your playgroup let you use Sylvan Primordial? because otherwise hes banned.
As for cards I don't think are worth running:
Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger: A lot of people like him and I get that with a reanimator deck you can cheat him out early. But ultimately this card is good for one thing, eating removal. I have never seen him stay on the board for more than one turn. he heats counterspells / exile spells faster than almost any other creature. And in doing so he paints a big target on your forehead. This one is a personal preference thing, I just don't think its a good idea.
Artisan of Kozilek: you already run a lot of reanimation and you actually have to cast this dude to get value from him. And by himself hes smaller than It That Betrays. May as well run the It That Betrays as you can get more value from him bot on the field and via reanimation.
Traumatize: your deck only runs 20 creatures (plus commander) - although you might hit a few creatures you'll hit a bunch of stuff you don't want in your graveyard. And Eternal Witness is your only graveyard catch-all. You'd be better off running Entomb (you already have Buried Alive). You're after a controlled mill, not a mass dump. It also leaves your deck at its most vulnerable to graveyeard hate when all your good stuff is in your graveyard.
As for stuff to put in:
Jarad's Orders: really good at getting very specific cards into the graveyeard.
Intuition (This one is an expensive card so I'm a bit hesitant recommending it solely on price): end of turn grab a creature and two reanimation spells - either way its a win for you.
Rise of the Dark Realms: You can produce a fair chunk of mana, may as well take all the things.
These all obviously come from my experience playing commander, but I hope they at least give you some ideas.

There must be a mixup because I don't have any straight Lightning Bolt. I guess that I could drop 1 Watery Grave from gatecrash to you.
I could send:
