Sure, no problem.

If you were playing the grixis version, I'd probably suggest Claim, or even Postmortem Lunge, because these two also have the Orzhov Charm's third effect, so... they kinda bring you back in some matchups.

Of course, they wouldn't save you from Path to Exile, but we live in a Fatal Push World, so it's better be safe than sorry.

See ya!

Hey, bro

How are you?

Cool list, I'm a big DS fan, I simply love everything about the card.

Just some thoughts: Have you considered mainboarding Ranger of Eos and/or Orzhov Charm. These cards bring some very good recursion in matchups with lots of removal like Jeskai Control and Mardu Pyromancer.

Hope it helps.

Thanks and keep up the good work!

Just a quick comment based on your deck description: None of your creatures can actually be pumped using a negative life total. On July 14, 2017, Wizards changed their ruling on Death's Shadow, removing its ability to be pumped by negative life totals. Since this ruling is fairly new, I wanted to make sure you were aware of the change. Immolating Souleater cannot be pumped as you cannot pay more life than your current life total.

Regarding what you are looking for, I would recommend adding some one mana removal spells. Fatal Push, Path to Exile, and Swords to Plowshares all immediately spring to mind. Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek are also very powerful, removing threats before they ever enter the battlefield.

I think you should also cut 2 copies of Repay in Kind. This card costs a bunch of mana, and often is a dead draw--you have enough post-combo card draw to justify running fewer copies.

Orzhov Charm provides removal and graveyard recursion for your Death's Shadow. Great card for this deck. Claim / Fame is another great graveyard recursion spell, resurrecting your Death's Shadow for the paltry price of 1 mana. The other half of the card is fairly insignificant--no need to splash red to run it.

Your deck might have some problems with tokens (as you rely on a few large creatures lacking trample) or combo decks. A wrath effect, such as Damnation, and unrestricted permanent removal (such as Anguished Unmaking or Vindicate) would be pretty useful.

Also, I have to ask, what exactly does Melira, Sylvok Outcast do for you? If you are worried about infect, Solemnity provides you protection.

Maybe run Orzhov Charm, for naive me it seems its the best thing death's shadow decks can gain from splashing white (to compliment the usual UB).
After all its a good removal, a good way to loose life, and can reanimate your titular card.

I don't mean to subtract from the originality of your idea but your deck is pretty similar to various forms of ponza, so i would suggest looking up some primers on that, and on this new and spicy list - and the associated page on reddit.
As a rule of thumb anything that is big and mean (in green and/or red) is a good cadidate for inclusion, and due to the flexible nature of this "archetype" there is a lot of room for individual creativity.
So the best idea is probably to scroll through gatherer.wizards.com

I would also warmly welcome an kind of constructive criticism on my deck!

Claim is better for bringing back Vexing Devil than Orzhov Charm is.

If you really want to try an unconventional DS build in Orzhov colours, you must play Orzhov Charm. It's jankyness at its finest, but its second and third abilities look good with DS.

Nef What is different with your list?? I can say that I have really liked the Claim / Fames. Orzhov Charm has been a bit hit or miss.

Interesting shell here with the Claim / Fame and Orzhov Charm. I'm currently testing this out a similar mardu brew to see if it is better than the current one I am running.
