Nirkana Revenant Discussion

TheMillKid on Kalitas, Aristocontrol

Magus of the Coffers , Nirkana Revenant , and Cabal Stronghold are also good ways to generate extra mana from your Swamps.

Blade of the Bloodchief fits great with Kalitas (who, if I recall correctly, is/was the Bloodchief of Ghet). Although creatures your opponents control won't "die" while Kalitas is out, the Zombies you make can serve as fodder to further grow your general. I'd also recommend Rogue's Passage to help your general get through when you need to. Sometimes, you can convert your zombie army into a big power spike for Kalitas, and then take out an opponent with commander damage.

Some of those definitely seem like direct upgrades. I think I'll keep Underworld Connections , Profane Procession  Flip and Oathsworn Vampire for now, as their replacements a little pricey.

Voldaren Pariah  Flip, Nirkana Revenant , Patron of the Vein , Big Game Hunter are great additions, will look to pick these up I think. Tragic Poet is just in there as a reusable way of getting back enchantments, maybe it's unnecessary.

Thanks for the tip on the screen name, didn't realise it would be an issue. And again, thanks for the help.

No trouble!

Personally, I don't like the rate on Banewhip Punisher , Oathsworn Vampire (It's just really bad Bloodghast ), Sadistic Skymarcher , Tragic Poet , Foul-Tongue Shriek , Chalice of Life  Flip, Fountain of Renewal , Bishop of the Bloodstained (Anthems and Sanctum Seeker will just be a lot more damage over the course of a game), Ravenous Chupacabra , Profane Procession  Flip, or Underworld Connections . They're all just very low impact in a 40-life, 4-player format, with the exception of the last two. Profane Procession  Flip is just so much more expensive than something like Rise of the Dark Realms , and while you're not the first person I've talked to who seems to think Underworld Connections is an acceptable substitute for Phyrexian Arena , man is it ever worse.

I don't like the rate on Call the Bloodline , either, unless you want to go deeper on a Madness or Reanimator theme, which could work, since you might want Voldaren Pariah  Flip, anyway. If you did that, Call to the Netherworld gets back Elenda, Big Game Hunter is a nice replacement for Banewhip Punisher , Bishop of Rebirth could be decent, and bigger vamps like Nirkana Revenant , Patron of the Vein , Necropolis Regent , Guul Draz Overseer , Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter , and Butcher of Malakir become much more attractive. That would require a lot of changes, though. You could keep Profane Procession  Flip and get a lot more out of Crypt of Agadeem that way, though, so maybe don't rule it out.

Heya Squeablies!

Drana has been one of my favorite decks to play as of lately. I would recommend a couple cards that increases your mana as Drana is very mana intensive. You can consider cards like Expedition Map to find your Cabal Coffers / Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth quicker. Extraplanar Lens although ricky is a great card to have access to more mana. Nirkana Revenant doubles as another Crypt Ghast as well.

You can check out my version of Drana for more insight!

Feel free to ask for any advice, glad to help!

P.S. also set your deck to EDH/Commander in the edit menu for deck building!

May I recommend cards such as Nirkana Revenant or Crypt Ghast? Just solid mono-black cards. Vanquisher's Banner could help supply some card draw for your rat swarm as well. :)

dritchie thank you for the suggestions ! Let me explain why some of these did not make it into my deck,

Nirkana Revenant: If i'm spending 6 mana on a creature i want instant value ! and no (6)creature has more valid than our beloved Coven leader Edgar Markov !

Necropolis Regent: Same as the above ^

Cathars' Crusade: Again a high cost card for 0 value in the turn i play it + almost useless after a boardwipe. Rather pay 1 more and cast Edgar Markov

Door of Destinies: 4 mana , No value again in the turn i play it , can be a powerhouse after some turns and many casts but thats not my playstyle.

The other cards you mentioned Fumigate & Patriarch's Bidding are indeed good cards but i don't have them YET :p

Thx again for the comment ! really appreciated mate !

Nirkana Revenant and Necropolis Regent are just powerhouses of creatures and Cathars' Crusade adds more power, Olivia Voldaren for flavour and can add power / control a game
