Ob Nixilis Reignited Discussion

Transgress the Mind is better than Lay Bare the Heart, specifically because it can get Aetherworks Marvel. You might want to put Dispossess in your sideboard as well. Yahenni's Expertise is also good for weenie board wipes. Murder or Ruinous Path over Final Reward. Ob Nixilis Reignited would also be good here. Fatal Push over Dead Weight. You would get more value out of Oath of Liliana than Trial of Ambition if you put in Ob. Also Grasp of Darkness needs to be in here as well. I would even consider putting in Harsh Scrutiny

Do you think Ob Nixilis Reignited really fits in this deck? I know it is card draw for black but it seems like you can't really take full advantage of him so he just sits there

Sorry bout that, some of the 1x could go unless they're really impactful. I agree about Tormenter and Shamble out for the lands, but Id also drop 1 Splendid Agony and go up to 4 copies of Dread Wanderer or Zulaport Cutthroat, or even a second Gifted.
I usually run 4x of things I wanna see in an opening hand and don't mind drawing multiples of (like Dread Wanderer), and for 1x it's cards that I don't wanna see until late game and it puts the game away when you hit it, or if it's situational and it won't hurt your gameplan if you never see it in a game but it is good enough in certain situations that it deserves a spot. Ob Nixilis Reignited is a good example, or Liliana. The Liliana's Mastery can be potent if you have a lot of Zombies out but will be kinda mediocre if not so it could be ok at 1 copy. Oftentimes people will make a "tribal" deck where almost all creatures are the same type and so a Zombie Tribal deck is a shell where Mastery is always good and you'd want more copies, especially since they stack so a second one cast would essentially make 4/4s and turn your other 3/3s from the first one in play into 4/4s thereby adding 10 power to the field (whereas the first gave 6) not even considering any zombie creatures previously cast.

See now I WOULDN'T take out Ob Nixilis Reignited.
He has won me a lot of games.
Not only does he give late game card advantage by refilling your hand, he can also act as another source of removal.
I agree that Shamble Back is kind of weak.

Is your Essence Extraction able to remove her creatures reliably? Are there creatures that you need to exile from her graveyard or are you just casting Shamble Back for a zombie token and 2 life? Has Rush of Vitality been useful to your game plan? You mentioned Trample as being a component of her deck, so it would seem like at best it would negate the damage of one creature for one turn. Which essentially puts you behind in tempo, tempo is how advantage is gauged in mtg. If you are spending mana and using cards to only affect one turn while her cards and mana remain in effect, she will slowly pull ahead.How often can you get Ob Nixilis Reignited into play and get any use out of him? I have tried jamming him into five or six of my standard decks; only to end up pulling him back out. He's an awesome card but I would always either draw him too early and have a dead card in hand or play him too late to be worth the mana. The above cards would be the six that I pulled out first if they fail to perform against her deck. I know the general consensus is that auras are bad (because if they kill your creature they spend one card to remove two of yours) and making an opponent sacrifice is less effective than targeting a specific creature, but I really do like how the trials can be recast by interacting with the cartouches.

Witch is unoptimal, Baral, Chief of Compliance or Curious Homunculus Flip are better options even if they are weak to Push. You're very light on counters, I'd be running Negates and Essence Scatters to help with the counter plan. Floodwaters is a bad card, dont run that. Lunar Force is also a very bad counterspell, letting them pick what gets countered is a bad idea. Your only draw is Illumination, Id add Glimmer of Genius or maybe a repeatable draw source like Jace, Unraveler of Secrets or Ob Nixilis Reignited. Sphinx is great, but its much better in the sideboard. You need so exile effects so I'd look into Scarab Feast for the sideboard. Run 4 Pushes. To the Slaughter is bad in non-delirium decks so I'd cut it. Tree of P is a bad blocker, its too slow for you to use effectively... Noxious GHulk is good but you should run 2... Behold is realllly slow, and ideally your hand is staying full so I dont quite like it... youd be better off with more draw, maybe something like Kefnet the Mindful? Its a much better blocker. Brutality is insane good, keep that at 4. If you go a higher blue focus, run as many islands as you can (Sunken Hollow and Fetid Pools) and then Engulf the Shore gets insanely powerful for you. Finally, for a deck like this you want 26-27 lands... Not everything I said can be included but it should give you a starting point. I'll copy and paste this to your deck so you can have it for future reference.

I know I posted semi-recently, but I have a new list and want to start some more trades now that I am active again.
I am looking to get cards for a Progenitus Superfriends Deck. I have a bunch of random stuff to offer and am more interested in some cards listed below than others (i.e. I will prioritize Atraxa, certain walkers, and certain lands).

Arlinn Kord Flip
Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver
Chandra, Flamecaller (SDCC Version)
Gideon, Champion of Justice
Elspeth, Sun's Champion
Jace, Architect of Thought
Jace, Unraveler of Secrets (SDCC Version preferred, would accept either)
Kaya, Ghost Assassin
Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker
Nissa, Vital Force
Nissa, Voice of Zendikar (SDCC version)
Ob Nixilis Reignited
Sorin, Grim Nemesis
Vraska the Unseen
Venser, the Sojourner
Cards of Note:
2x Lion's Eye Diamond
