FlammendesScwert Thanks for the suggestion! I really like Haunting Echoes! I am play testing now, and it seems to be a great card whether it gets played or not. It's a good pitch card for Smallpox when I don't have the mana to cast it. Also have thought about adding Pox

Check out my Pox deck for some ideas: Ring Around the Rosey

Innocent Blood or Fatal Push are great options. Fatal push is more effective if you add some fetch lands.

Liliana of the Veil is needed as a 3-4 of. Poxshould be a 0-1 of depending on player and play style.

Sinkhole and Wasteland are staples for this deck and a must.

If you like using Nether Spirit then add in Contamination andEntomb.

Duress is...underwhelming. Switch to Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize.

I agree with the other posters in this thread: play black for Reanimate spells. You may not even need red if you play cards like Smallpox, Pox, Collective Brutality, and so on that make everyone discard cards.

So you play a Smallpox, discard a fat angel, then Animate Dead/Reanimate/Necromancy/Unburial Rites/Shallow Grave/Exhume the angel back into play.

@Saljen: Thanks for the feedback! I appreciate it.

I'm not too sure about Dark Deal, it's only useful on the third turn with a Waste Not on the field.
Based on the people I play against, Pox and Innocent Blood are not too useful. My opponents always have a lot more resources than me.
Oblivion Stone, Ensnaring Bridge, Bloodghast and Liliana of the Veil are out of my budget.
I pick Bottomless Pit over Necrogen Mists. Added to the deck.
I like Skeletal Scrying, Crypt Rats and Fume Spitter. I will consider them. I also want to get Nezumi Shortfang.

Thanks again!

I once built a similar deck a couple months ago which I plan on revising soon, and probably even changing some core mechanics, but until then: Welcome to the Viper Pit might have some good cards for you to look at. I took a slightly different route focusing more on throwing things into the grave via cards like Deadbridge Chant so I could easily pull exactly what I needed back out using cards like Treasured Find.

Some specifics I'd like to point out are: Elixir of Immortality and Feldon's Cane for grave hate prevention since you can tap them at instant speed, and cards like Splendid Reclamation since I saw you included Pox.

For your +1/1 and token mechanics: Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, Vigor, as well as Hardened Scales. Mycoloth does both. Doubling Season has always been a favorite of mine, or the budget alternative Primal Vigor. Tokens can also be boosted using Parallel Lives or Second Harvest. I also have a +1/1 focused deck called "Place 2(3[X+1]2)+1 +1/1s On Creature When It Dies" (TappedOut doesn't like formatting symbols) which, although being rainbow, has a strong focus on green and just stacking creatures sky high.

As for what you should get rid of: I'm not sure mana ramp is really needed for a deck like this, Birds of Paradise, Sakura-Tribe Elder, and Wood Elves are nice, but you could accomplish the same thing with an Evolving Wilds or Terramorphic Expanse minus the cannon fodder, but with the token theme you should already have enough of that. Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger I can see as being more control than ramp but its a heavy cost card in an otherwise lighter CMC curve deck and control isn't really a strength in your deck either.

Hope something in my text block helps.

I run a black rack style tiny leaders deck as well. Here's some cards I'd recommend: Dark Deal, Innocent Blood, Pox, Thoughtseize, Skeletal Scrying, Ensnaring Bridge, Oblivion Stone, Bottomless Pit, Necrogen Mists, Liliana of the Veil, Blood Pet (ramp/liliana trigger), Bloodghast, Crypt Rats, Fume Spitter (liliana trigger/removal), Nezumi Shortfang.

edit: after attempting to post this; I just realized how much of my deck is illegal in Tiny Leaders. Jesus, that ban list has absolutely exploded!

Hi there, I was wondering if you have considered just a few stax cards since you will most likely have enough tokens to offset their effects? The cards I'm mostly thinking of are Smokestack, Small Pox and maybe even Descent into Madness? deathcloud and Pox might be too much though.

Other cards I'd recommend are removal such as Innocent Blood, Barter in Blood and possibly even Kuon, Ogre Ascendant though he's rough at BBB cost.

Cloudstone Curio is a great value engine and Cryptic Gateway could be pretty awesome too. Anyways hope it helps!
