Lurrus of the Dream-Den Discussion

Skullclamp is back bb, since Lurrus of the Dream-Den and Sun Titan can bring it back to abuse loops and the litany of tokens and little creatures to devour.

Added Vindicate for more meta coverage (a Field of the Dead based korvold deck and an omnipresent Sisay, Weatherlight Captain superfriends deck)

Threw in Dance of the Dead as a second copy of Animate Dead to be a part of the Lurrus of the Dream-Den kit and allow for nice board resets after wipes (reanimating Karmic Guide (it immediately falling off) targetting Sun Titan targetting Dance of the Dead, targetting Karmic Guide, etc)

once jump-start drops we are vying to find a spot for Witch of the Moors for potentially abusive board control with the new lifegain effects in build.

Primer to be updated soon after some additional playtesting

I would personally run Nethroi, Apex of Death. Nethroi has lifelink which can be fun to pump up with auras, but Nethroi's reanimate ability can be seriously powerful at enchantment reanimation if you build your deck right.

Auramancer, Griffin Dreamfinder, Monk Idealist, Restoration Specialist, Trusty Retriever, Acolyte of Affliction, Golgari Findbroker, Lurrus of the Dream-Den, Eternal Witness, Felidar Guardian. These make excellent targets to recur enchantments and auras with as you could recur 4 to 5 enchantments every time Nethroi mutates.

Do keep in mind a few card draw enchantment creatures also have 0 power making them free to reanimate too. Creatures like: Argothian Enchantress, Mesa Enchantress, Verduran Enchantress, Kor Spiritdancer.

Since you're in black it should also be easy to recur creatures with cheap mutate costs such as: Vulpikeet, Migratory Greathorn, Insatiable Hemophage, Huntmaster Liger and Gemrazer.

So if you get creative with the deck building Nethroi, Apex of Death can practically be a Crystal Chimes on a stick.

Also if you run out of enchantments to recur I'd recommend running these enchantments as they're easy to both put into the graveyard and obtain value off of them which is what will make this strategy even stronger: Sinister Concoction, Seal of Primordium, Seal of Cleansing, Soul Snare, Weight of Conscience, Aura of Silence, Font of Fertility, Sterling Grove and Unbridled Growth. Sigil of the Nayan Gods and Cast Out also work if you only intend to cycle them.

Might I suggest Animate Dead and Dance of the Dead in replace of Beacon of Unrest? It’s a near-identical effect that’s cheaper and you can play them with Lurrus of the Dream-Den.

I know this is an old ass deck but I had a couple cards in mind to probably run in this deck.

Lurrus of the Dream-Den could be a great way to bring back discard spells that could take advantage of your graveyard, get back important enchantments, or just have a bunch of discard triggers with Burning Inquiry or maybe Vicious Rumors

I think you should cut Twinblade Paladin sometimes it's difficult to reach 25 life points ;) You should maybe try Gideon's Company and if you want double strike maybe go for Mirran Crusader. Oketra's Monument could be useful as it creates tokens and reduce the cost of white spells. Gideon Blackblade is useful too so maybe in the sideboard ? and you should also consider Lurrus of the Dream-Den since half of your creatures cost 2 mana or less.

BRG24 I think Sram, Senior Edificer is good because it is a turn 2 play, I don't really need the extra growth from Setessan Champion also using Sram, Senior Edificer lets me use Lurrus of the Dream-Den as a companion if I want which is an extra bonus.

We are always trying to run Revival / Revenge, but it never stays in the final build.

We are currently playing with Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose, and Lurrus of the Dream-Den, and likely gonna reintegrate Serra Ascendant (despite the true owner's disdain for that card) for some low cmc toolkit synergy and big lifegain sacrifices.

Lurrus of the Dream-Den has given us ample opportunity to set up Animate Dead + Karmic Guide into Sun Titan shenanigans, while bringing back a soul sister effect whenever we need one after a big nonland wipe.

Will keep you updated! We are also testing a new loop theme: Solemnity + Mikaeus, the Unhallowed / Luminous Broodmoth which has been testing extremely positively, especially with Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, or Kokusho, the Evening Star (with mikaeus at least)

Once we test some more we will finalize the updates to the primer/etc. We haven't been able to test in a multiple player setting, will likely set up a rig for Saturday night virtual playing soon.

In 1 v 1 testing, The new soul sister effects are back breaking. Easily gaining 15+ life by the time it matters and mitigating early game damage. Living Death with Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed loops keep things liquid and denying resources through spot exile or Remorseful Cleric have been the prime way of shutting down the game.
