Mindblade Render Discussion

This might be addressed before, but the curve is quite high. I tend to find myself not doing much until at least T4 in the 5 games I gold fished the deck, keeping playable hands. Here might be some cards that can be considered in your lifegain/control theme.

Hope that helps!

I already have Viscera Seer in my deck, I think I have enough sac outlets as it is.

I've been looking at CA cards. Smothering Abomination looks like it will fit really well. Vampiric Rites, Mindless Automaton seem decent too. I don't like Mindblade Render since I have hardly any warriors. I'll think about Sylvan Library but i'll probably end up getting it.

I have a couple Journey to Eternity  Flip somewhere so i'll give it a whirl.

Drana, Liberator of Malakir looks pretty solid, so i'll include it with Bow of Nylea, Greater Good, Disciple of Bolas. I don't think Skullclamp would be a good include, if I have Ravos out, which I should, it'd be useless. Necropolis Regent is too expensive, I want to avoid high costing cards as much as possible.

Card Advantage (CA) is always key in any deck. The thing about Fecundity is that sometime's opponents can also get CA from it as well, and I prefer it to be as asymmetrical as possible. Izoni is also quite slow to be a decent CA engine. For budget purposes I would actually recommend something more akin Grim Haruspex, Phyrexian Arena, or even Mindblade Render as CA engines.

In regarding for cards like Greater Good and Disciple of Bolas, I love them. They are great in any reanimation decks. I would also recommend Corpse Augur if you have a pretty filled grave most of the time, and it doesn't even have to be yours as well since it's target player. Lifeblood Hydra is a bit risky, but since your going with a +1/+1 theme it's decent. I would not add in Etched Oracle, it may seem good but it's meh at best. Skullclamp is also a great engine with a sac outlet on the field as well as having Ravos return the creature back to your hand to reuse again.

If you have a bit higher budget I would definitely recommend in getting Sylvan Library, one of the best CA engine around. For sac outlets I would also recommend Viscera Seer as it is one of the most cost efficient one as well as a relevant ability upon sacrificing. Carrion Feeder also goes along with theme. I do recommend as I mentioned earlier Journey to Eternity  Flip as for a reuseable reanimation ability as well as not being hard to trigger being a Aristocrat type deck.

A few more cards to consider would also be Drana, Liberator of Malakir, she is a hidden gem in this deck to constantly proc +1/+1 counters and she is force to be reckoned with. Bane of Progress is also a good mass board wipe against plenty of artifact or enchantment based decks. Necropolis Regent is a bit high on the curve but does a lot for making counters. Bow of Nylea can also help you make more counters or protect your graveyard from hate. Hope that answers your question and feel free to ask for any help!

It's a bit slow and people can see it coming, but if used in conjunction with other cards like for say Neheb, the Eternal than you get an atrocious amount of value. It's fun but once people see it than they would know better to let that happen again next time. But definitely a fun way to go out with a bang!

Even if you are public enemy #1, can they stop it? :P If the train keeps coming and they still stay on the tracks chances are they still going to get smashed haha. The only problem I would see in this type of deck is the lack of card draw when your ramping, there are other ways to get CA like for say Twilight Prophet, Necropotence, Phyrexian Arena, Mindblade Render, Erebos, God of the Dead, Underworld Connections, Mind's Eye, Staff of Nin, Reforge the Soul (notice the lack of other colors for card draw?).

SynergyBuild I have contemplated running Mindblade Render and was wondering if it was worth a spot, it's my favorite pet card for a budget Bob. Plus there is a Najeela deck in our meta so I can go grab more cards if they ever decide to attack other opponents aside from me. I need to ponder and see what I can cut to test this out :P

Mindblade Render is actually really good outside of decks with warriors, it is a 1/3 so gets past opposing 2/1's and dorks without dieing, commonly getting in for damage or taking a creature in combat. Really efficient card drawing.

If your looking for more card draw here are some options that you can consider.

Hope that gives some insight!

I would suggest:

Not sure about the budget and if you are willing to add stax to the options, since it is very powerful in multiplayer EDH. See my list on my profile for other ideas.

Good luck!
