Grubbernaut, thanks for your comment! I'm definitely flip-flopping between the Rager and Zealot in the slot, and only playtesting is really going to tell. For now I'll be trying out the Rager, because my mana curve is pretty low and I think I can afford running a 3-drop with an extra point of power and toughness, but I'm going to try out both. Also MBS's Phyrexian Rager is one of my favorite Magic artworks of all time.

I might give Satyr Wayfinder consideration if I find I'm tripping up on my Anglers or I'm not hitting delirium enough. But I was probably going to run Grapple with the Past or Grisly Salvage first, if it came to that, I think.

Thanks again!

Sweet brew! Only change I'd suggest is Dusk Legion Zealot over Phyrexian Rager, and perhaps Satyr Wayfinder.

Thoughts on Faithless Looting? Maybe -1 Night's Whisper, -1 Phyrexian Rager... Or one Flame Slash

Fills yard, no life loss, flashback if it's milled, one mana. Hmmm...

Not a bad idea. I have a lot of cards I want to punch in, but I just don't know what to reasonably cut...

Maybe one Phyrexian Rager?

I have heard this suggestion a few times and tried Dusk Legion Zealot out a bit in casual play. I replaced Phyrexian Rager with it. It's hard to say which performs better. The 2/2 body on Phyrexian Rager just won out in my opinion. The meta I play in is more a 1/1 creature meta.

Dusk Legion Zealot is definitely gonna end up being a staple at some point, it's basically a Phyrexian Rager for 1 less mana

I can see you are working on a bit of a budget so I will try to stick to budget suggestions, but I am going to make a few suggestions that are more expensive for you to shoot for later.

I think the deck is good for a first run. I understand that it isn't quite where you want it yet, and you have ideas of what you want to add; I suggest adding those to the Maybe Board or Acquire Board to keep others from suggesting cards you already have in mind.

Firstly, recursion is great, but right now I see no way for you to get your creatures into the yard aside from attacking/blocking. So I recommend the following list for making sure you always have a reanimation target:

Secondly, I think you need to trim most of the creatures in your deck that have more than 2 power so that you have more reanimation targets for Alesha. I suggest replacing them with cards that have good ETB effects such as:

Lastly, you will want some cards that benefit from all the death you will be causing. I suggest the cards below:

This is by no means an extensive list as I just spent a short time searching based on cards I already knew paired well. Most of these should be rather cheap additions and fairly easy to come by.

Hope this helps.
