Ob Nixilis Reignited Discussion

I will give you the tips I am always gave.
---First of all: correct your mana-curve! In the right of this page have a graphic that show you your mana-curve. Your mana-curve don't looks like a curve, yeah?
How do you make this? Simple. Put things you can get time and game advantage with low mana cost. I am a big fan of cheap deck, so i will try indicate cheap cards.
A good deck have at least 8 removal cards, this cards may be really versatil like Murder or more restricted like Smother, a great removal that support early creatureless game in single or multiplayer games is Innocent Blood (now is very cheap). From the white side, you have 2 excellent removals for everything Oblivion Ring and Banishing Light. If you what spend more money you can also use Anguished Unmaking.
Your deck don't have draw, which makes it slow. Draw engine are always necessary. Can be constant like Phyrexian Arena ($$$) or Staff of Nin, or can be recursive like Sign in Blood or Night's Whisper (ideal for this deck). One of the most important things about low mana cost draws is to always have a land to play in all of your turns.
---Secound: You need create a deck more consistant, 4x or 3x of each card, 2x only for utility cards like Ob Nixilis Reignited or great mana cost like Resolute Archangel. That way you will create a focus on your deck and more efficience too.
---Third: Make a more synergy deck, with one card contributing to another. You gain alot of life maybe you can make Angelic Accord or Well of Lost Dreams works. If you have token generator (Moonsilver Spear, Captain's Claws, Lingering Souls, etc) you can use morbid of Reaper from the Abyss better and also can use Tragic Slip who is a wonderful low mana cost removal.
With this tips you can make any deck with not much trouble.
Obs.: the ideas of mana ramping like Sol Ring is nice, but so unfair, because this card is banned for all formats (except vintage) for a reason. You can use this strategy easily, but you probably never will learn how make a solid deck without non-sense banned cards like Sol Ring.

So I love Breya colors for Superfriends, yeah ok I lose Doubling season and a few Walkers [most green ones are jsut ramp so I'll live] Bur in return I get red, which i enjoy more for the extra card draw [and other effects like removal and distruption]
But still need help making sure the Walker line up looks good, I feel I have a bit too many and combined with a basic 36 land deck means half of my deck is already set up, leaving little room for extra cards since most of the deck will be artifacts to support the walkers [whether it is protecting with creatures, or boosting them via proliferate and mana rocks for ramp]
Things to note:~I want it to be a good deck but trying to Avoid infinite combos, also trying to keep my Price spike on walkers low [avoiding Karn and Jace Mind Sculptor basically]~Only one of each walker for now, so i never have to worry about dropping them and losing another copy in play.
Ajani Vengeant -Tap down and burn, plus getting ult off can destroy someone
Dovin Baan - Draw and partial protection
Elspeth, Knight-Errant -Protection with blockers
Gideon, Ally of Zendikar -CHUMP BLOCKERS!!!! :P
Jace, Unraveler of Secrets -Best Jace for the deck while staying budget. Draw power, and partial protection
Kaya, Ghost Assassin -Nice versatility and can blink my ETB artifact creatures
Liliana of the Veil - Nice Disruption [yes i know she is over budgest compared to the rest of walkers but i own one already]
Nahiri, the Harbinger - Draw power and her minus can be good removal
Narset Transcendent -Mostly draw power, but can combine her minus with something like a tutor effect to get extra value [x2 call the gatewatch? x2 Demonic or Vampiric tutor? yes please]
Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker - he is great if i can get him down, all abilities are great and relevant
Ob Nixilis Reignited - Draw power and removal
Saheeli Rai - Ehhhh, in this deck she is debatable, the plus to scry is meh, but the minus could copy a mana rock for one turn to get the small extra mana, or copy an ETB artifact like Solemn Simulacrum for extra value
Sarkhan the Mad - So probably an odd choice, but his zero can be good card draw with Sensei's Divining Top and zero drop artifacts or lands so i don't ping him down, and his minus can trigger my own death triggers and replace the creature
Sorin, Grim Nemesis - Card draw mostly, but his potential removal is not to be ignored
Tamiyo, the Moon Sage - Tap things down mostly, keep plusing on most threatening things on board
Teferi, Temporal Archmage - Card drawn, untap anything, yeah he great
Tezzeret, Master of Metal -SO to stay away from my infinite combo i chose him over Tezzeret the Seeker and i feel his plus is nice way to get artifacts and his minus can potentially hit an opponent really hard.

Idyllic Tutor Actually isnt that bad of an Idea. It'd definitely help to get some winning combos out; however, I've never been a big fan of Vampiric Tutor because of it goes on top rather than In hand. It Is a good card though, so adding it might be a good idea, eveb if It's just in the sideboard. Two life isnt anything when comparing it to what I've seen this deck do.
In response to Ob Nixilis Reignited I just feel like he wouldn't fit well within the deck. I've ran him in some other decks and I've never been a big fan.
Cliffhaven Vampire and Defiant Bloodlord are cards that would totally be worth adding into the deck! It'd definitely allow me to focus more on the combo. A Demonic Tutor wouldn't hurt either. Having that extra tutor never hurts.
Thank you all for the suggestions. I'll look into making so adjustments. The feed back helps tremendously.

Hey there folks, try to find a midrange jund that works, I Thinkthe deck still lack some interaction with the board, I added Sylvan Advocate and Goblin Dark-Dwellers to the main to give an early defense and late reuse for our spells.
Please let me know what you guys think, as well I am considering 1 off Ob Nixilis Reignited in the Main.thanks

robgould339, I do like the focus now. I will say that Griselbrand and Ob Nixilis Reignited might be a little overkill. The lifelink on Griselbrand does have strong synergy with cards like Prey Upon, but at 8 mana, it may be difficult to even cast him at all. Without the ability to cast him almost for free, as in reanimator, it becomes much more likely that you won't have enough life left to abuse his ability. As for Ob Nixilis Reignited, I find that I usually end up using him for his -3 ability. Since this deck is already pretty great at destroying creatures, I imagine that will narrow his use down to just drawing an extra card every turn. And at that point, I'd probably just use Bloodgift Demon. I suppose it is possible that if you can manage to stay ahead on the board, you just might be able to pull off his ultimate (which is something I achieve very rarely in my dimir control deck). If that works out, he certainly can be a viable win condition.
As for Quietus Spike + Cruel Sadist, I think it's a nice combo. The question is whether or not you'll draw them in conjunction enough to justify their inclusion. Compare it to Vampire Nighthawk + Prey Upon. The nighthawk is still good, even when you don't have a prey upon to go with it, and the prey upon is still good if you don't have exactly nighthawk to go with it. Here, Quietus Spike and Cruel Sadist become a lot worse if they aren't paired with each other. If you go with it, I'd at least consider swapping Quietus Spike to Basilisk Collar, seeing as it is cheaper and that lifelink is more likely to come into effect than the life halving.
I was also doing some searches and came across Gnarlwood Dryad, Narnam Renegade, and Wasteland Viper. Seems like any of these could be an objectively better Sedge Scorpion, so that's cool. The viper in particular increases the value of any non-deathtouch creatures in the deck.
