Whenever you scry, Exile the top card of your library face-down.  For as long as that card remains in exile, you may cast it any time you could cast an instant.

2/3


Does Fanatic of Xenagos not count? There's also Pharika's Mender , and ORI gave us Iroas's Champion , but there are definitely a few still missing. Another!

I like to Commune with the Gods and hit Whip of Erebos with it. The whip is kind of a key card in the deck so I don't want it in the graveyard. Maybe some recursion Eternal Witness , Golgari Findbroker or even Pharika's Mender will work.

I personally would remove Doubling Season for Noxious Gearhulk. DS is a "win more" card and it's not needed in your deck. If you were more counter or token focused I would remove Pharika's Mender or Reassembling Skeleton instead. Check out my build when you have time.

So to take full advantage of Muldrotha, you need to STACK your deck with self mill and reanimate cards (in case Muldrotha isn't in play). I made a Sidisi, Brood Tyrant zombie reanimate deck (Sidisi's Zombies) if you want to check it out. Here are some that may help you: Paranoid Delusions, Apocalypse Demon, Avatar of Woe, Champion of Stray Souls, Havengul Lich, Pharika's Mender, Taigam, Sidisi's Hand, Jarad's Orders, Rise from the Grave, Vigor Mortis, Grim Return, Fated Return, Sultai Ascendancy, Deadbridge Chant, Svogthos, the Restless Tomb.

Hope you find this helpful!

Furani the Mindwrack Demon are actually a good idea, as are Grisly Salvage. The problem arises when the most vital part Bloodbond March is accidentally put into your graveyard. What I need is something to fetch enchantments from graveyards, so while Pharika's Mender is bad, I'm gonna need enchantment recursion. so I'm probably gonna get rid of it, but Grisly Salvage isn't gonna cut it. otherwise I think the other cards are actually going to go in. Didn't see them when making the deck.

Hey friend (: it's my pleasure.

First, for potential cuts: Bloodbriar (there are better options like Mortician Beetle), Agent of Erebos, Eater of Hope, Pharika's Mender, Skullwinder, Vampire Aristocrat (see Bloodthrone Vampire), Vampire Nighthawk. Also, depending on how you feel about your top-curve creatures, those could be flex spots.

I love how strong this deck is with ETB abilities and "when this dies" abilities. Treasure Keeper is phenomenal, for one. You've also got excellent one-shot sacrifice outlets like Devour and kickers and so forth. The permanent sacrifice outlets like Viscera Seer and Jarad are great, but there are few enough of them that you might have trouble sticking a sacrifice outlet.

So, what I would focus on at this point would be finding ways to cheat your fatties into play from the grave, and finding redundancies in your "permanent" sacrifice outlets. There's nothing worse than being a reanimator player with no grave and no ways to sacrifice creatures (it happens...and not always on bum draws). Splinterfright, Jarad's Orders, self-mill like Deadbridge Chant, and anything Dredge (like Stinkweed Imp) will fill your grave with creatures for you, so that when Meren has sixteen counters you'll actually have targets worth pulling. Disciple of Griselbrand, Nezumi Bone-Reader, Birthing Pod are all ways to get more sacrifice triggers when you want them. And don't be afraid to up your curve with Xathrid Demon or other high-CMC win-condition-like cards.

Then, I guess if you're feeling extra adventurous, I'd investigate ways to produce more tokens, because a lot of those sacrifice effects are still powerful for non-tokens, and tokens will help you go wide when you stick Pathbreaker Ibex. Golgari Germination, Verdant Embrace, Ogre Slumlord are all options. The worst part about GBx reanimator imo (I run Karador, Ghost Chieftain) is that the endgame is pretty grindy, so going wide with tokens is a must for me if you want to play a second game.

So, in summary, the deck is super strong in staples/ramp/card draw/core mechanics. Self-mill/extra sacrifice/token synergies are things you can pick and choose to personalize and make it fun for you, the pilot. Best of luck, and be sure to mention me if I can help with anything else!
