Hi,

I'm using a Keiga steal-deck that works slightly differently, though the principle is the same. In that deck, I've had fun with Legacy's Allure, Aura Thief and Memnarch. In case you feel like spending some more money, Empress Galina is just fantastic; she can steal all legendary permanents including planeswalkers.

Happy brewing and playing!

Regards,

@enpc thanks for the comment!

Interesting idea with Dark Petition since almost a quarter of the deck goes towards spell mastery. Will def consider it. I run Reclaim over Regrowth strictly for another Isochron Scepter target if need be.

Memnarch is crazy strong when paired with a lot of mana; but at the same time can be a dead card in hand or put a target on your back on the 'field. It's one of the three main wincons, treated similar to a Laboratory Maniac insta-win, but can still do work without infinite mana.

Aetherflux Reservoir again can win without infinites, but all the fetch/shock lands, mana rocks, and enchantments that cost life can hurtttt

I'm always looking for easy wincons. Just gotta be careful since I know ppl who run Sadistic Sacrament-style crap. I do play Walking Ballista in my animar deck hehe and it is real good.

Thanks again!

@ZendikariWol Thanks, that helps a lot. I'll respond in order of your comment.

-Greater Good is an excellent card but not amazing in here so I will consider cutting it and possibly replace it with Sadistic Hypnotist since I would like to have a 'free' sac outlet in place of it.

-Massacre Wurm is amazing and with a few ways to double his triggered ability he is even better so he has to stay. That artwork too!

-Shriekmaw is in there because he can get rid of stuff and get me an experience counter. He is a bit narrow but I count it as 2 CMC and I'm trying to reduce my curve. I will definitely consider cutting it though.

-Rune-Scarred Demon is so great, I always cheat him in and he wins me the game if I'm recurring him every turn or doubling his ETB ability. Can't cut it.

-Deathrite Shaman was recently added and I'm not 100% sold on him yet. I like that it's grave hate and I'm anticipating Muldrotha, the Gravetide is going to be a huge presence after Dominaria comes out. I may Swap him for Agent of Erebos depending how the meta changes.

-Walking Ballista is only in there because I recently added in Protean Hulk and Ballista allows for me to infinite combo win. that whole group of 5 cards is just on a trial period for the time being so Ballista may end up coming out of the deck. (see most recent update)

-Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest is in as a combo piece, he lets persist creatures return to the battlefield indefinitely. He is also good for going wide but that is rarely my strategy. He is staying for the time being.

-Grave Titan is 10/10 on 3 bodies for 6 CMC. He is on par with Wurmcoil Engine (which used to be in here). He is staying for now.

-Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed is a super star, he gets ANY black card so I can play cards like Entomb, Damnation, Living Death, even Contamination, more than one time. The self sac is a bonus.

I see your reasoning behind running more cards that don't require sacrifice to do things. My reason behind having cards that can self sacrifice is I want to be able to get value from the creatures without relying on a sac outlet. In my meta a sac outlet will usually not last long because they know it will end badly for them if it stays on the battlefield. Another reason is I decided to go with an ETB theme, Panharmonicon and Strionic Resonator make them even better. Depending on how stupid my board state gets I sometime have quadruple triggers for every ETB.

Where on earth is Reclamation Sage? I opted to go with Manglehorn since there are some lighning fast decks in my meta that rely heavily on artifact ramp and another arch nemesis I have is Memnarch.

I'm going to break the deck down and see if I will include some of your suggestions. The ones I'm currently considering are:

-Vindictive Lich - literally bought this card a week ago with the intention of putting it in but couldn't decide what to replace.

-Wurmcoil Engine - was in here before might be in here again.

-Deathreap Ritual - love this card just took it out a while back but maybe I'll put it back in since it's so goo with Strionic Resonator.

-Archfiend of Depravity - I tried it out briefly, if the art was better I'd put it in immediately. Still might though.

-Thragtusk - great card but I'm not a fan of the artwork.

Thanks again for the comments and the +1! Keep an eye out for the updated list in a day or two.

Rune-Scarred Demon could easily be Dark Petition to help make it more castable. Memnarch seems bad (in general) but especially in this list. it's too expensive and you already have enough infinite mana outlets. You can also swap Reclaim out with Regrowth.

Personally I think that Walking Ballista is better than Aetherflux Reservoir.

I also run a Dramatic Scepter Thrasios/Tymna build: Triton Weaver if you wanted to get any ideas.

Seems like Memnarch could be a more thematic commander. It would require swapping those Wastes for Islands though, if you wanted to use its ability.

Island, Mountain, Swamp, and Plains seem like potentially reasonable additions.

Honor-Worn Shaku is pretty neat with your legend focus. Also Thalia's Lancers. Even Yomiji, Who Bars the Way might be worth consideration. Legendary artifact creatures are also potentially pretty high value, like Memnarch, Silas Renn, Seeker Adept,Bosh, Iron Golem, and Sharuum the Hegemon; you get to meet your artifact synergies and legend synergies all in one go.

My favorite wizards are Venser, Shaper Savant and Memnarch.
