Kessig Cagebreakers Discussion

The deck looks pretty fun I definitely appreciate all of the silly combos. It does seem like maybe you could use some things to pull the Mana curve down a bit. One creature that I think would be especially awesome to be able to turn tokens into is Tyrant's Familiar. I know that it's another seven drop but that card is hilariously powerful. Another card that came to mind while reading your list is Blade of Selves. I really like having Genesis Chamber in Decks that want to flood the board with tokens however this one doesn't have a whole ton of actual creature cards to cast so it might not be great here. Same thing with Kessig Cagebreakers, I feel like that card would be amazing if you have enough creatures to meaningfully trigger it. It's hard to suggest cuts without actually seeing how the deck works cuz it's kind of weird. But good luck and Happy Gathering!

I think 33 lands in probably too few. Id try and include at least 36.

Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest used to be in here but I took him out because things are coming and going out of the graveyard so much, it seemed to hinder his progress of adding +1/+1 counters rather than helping him. As for Savra, Queen of the Golgari, I'm not sure why I haven't thought about her. She is perfect for this deck. I just need to find a spot. Kessig Cagebreakers seems like it would be good on paper though for 5 mana I think I'd rather search for Grave Titan at that point since he gives me sac fodder when he ETB and when he attacks. I'll have to think about him. Thanks for the suggestions!

@riddlemtgnerd I love the underrated Asceticism, but board wipes aren't such a bad thing in graveyard-based decks (for cards like Crypt of Agadeem, Kessig Cagebreakers, etc), and regeneration isn't usually relevant with a lot of the board wipes. The hexproof part is very delicious as a lot of spot removal is exile, but I'd still rather have Archetype of Endurance because this deck demands creatures. I still love Asceticism, and have been considering Oak Street Innkeeper for a while now for a similar effect, especially since I don't have much spot removal for Endurance's second part.

@T12H Oh definitely, Gravepurge is a life saver in my experience. I'm not a heavy control player so I usually don't save up for instants, but when I do it's worth it. Like one time I saved myself from a mass bounce and wheel by gravepurging Kessig Cagebreakers so I drew into it with the wheel, putting me right back in the winning position while everyone else recovered from the bounce. Another time I had it in my hand and a very relevant situation for it, but no mana, lol. And by taking a quick analysis of your deck you seem to like utility creatures much more than beaters or standalone cards as much as me, so I'd argue it's even more necessary for your deck even if you don't draw it (especially since graveyard hate is so dirt cheap in comes in a lands and 0 drops). Hope this helps
I'm looking at your deck more and I'm seeing it's a different approach from mine. Yes my deck has a weakness to graveyard hate, but another weakness is its flexibility. Your deck seems much more versatile. I just built a sigarda deck that has 4 major themes and can switch strategies just like that, and it's versatility is growing on me. So in this sidisi deck, do you think cutting some seemingly essential cards is worth it to be versatile, or should I keep mastering an arching theme of reanimation and play on that with cards like Gravepurge?
