Praetor's Counsel Discussion

Have you considered Undead Alchemist, Withered Wretch, or ways to exile graveyards? Every single color has ways to recur and abuse milled cards, think Praetor's Counsel, Mizzix's Mastery, Living Death, any Black reanimation spell, et cetera. Your meta may have none of that, tho. My Graveyard Factory started like yours, but I eventually decided I only wanted to mill myself (it's faster).

rob89 i have a Sachi Commander if you wanna see it Shaman's rage) quite a long time and i can say its my favorite one, that infinite combo looks pretty nice but i recomend put Primal Surge and cut instants and sorceries and put creatures to do the work like Silklash Spider, Stonehoof Chieftain or Wild Beastmaster, Winter Orb can make you win games easily in the late game you don't need lands anymore and you can stop other players to cast spells also Praetor's Counsel helps a lot when plays destroy al creatures spells

Sweet, I have a radha spellslinger deck and I love the color combination. Upwelling is another option besides omnath. Galvanoth is usefully. Praetor's Counsel in my opinion is a must in any deck that runs a lot of instants and sorceries. Goblin Dark-Dwellers is a cheaper alternative to Eternal Witness. Mirrorpool, Oracle of Bones,and Isochron Scepter all useful options. either way I will +1. Love the deck!

Meren of Clan Nel Toth and Ezuri, Claw of Progress might make good additions to your deck. Brawn and Wonder both make great cards to discard or let Sidisi, Brood Tyrant mill and get their abilities.Morbid Curiosity with some of your Grave Pact type of cards could mean a great value. Novijen, Heart of Progress seems like good deck tech. High Market is a good way for you to get a little life back. Blighted Woodland is actually better than it looks. Perpetual Timepiece helps with your self mill. Elixir of Immortality in case you go too hard on the self mill. The Gitrog Monster because he's annoying af. Nyx Weaver more graveyard manipulation. Massacre Wurm is good. Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord possible win con. Gisa and Geralf need to be able to use your graveyard as a resource. Zombie Apocalypse. Deadbridge Chant let's you use your graveyard as resource.Mikaeus, the Unhallowed so good. Risen Executioner another buff on a stick. Splinterfright more self mill. Evanescent Intellect let's sidisi mill without swinging. Extractor Demon could give you self mill your help you mill out an opponent.Mirror-Mad Phantasm and Hermit Druid both synergize well with sidisi. Laboratory Maniac as a safety net if you go too hard. Empty the Pits 4 mana plus your whole graveyard at an opponents end step could be stupid crazy. Eternal Witness grabbing what you need from your graveyard. Blood Artist makes all of those toekns even scarier as they are 2 point swings no matter what. Mesmeric Orb just have everyone mill. See the Unwritten this could do some work for you. Pharika's Mender another way to grab something from your graveyard. Deadwood Treefolk same as last card. Phyrexian Reclamation. Dig Through Time. Recollect. Praetor's Counsel all make your graveyard resource. Cellar Door. Eldrazi Monument. Distant Melody.Gaea's Blessing. Jarad's Orders.Unbreathing Horde. Lich Lord of Unx.

Can I suggest Ghirapur Orrery for discard value or Praetor's Counsel as a late finisher?

Pretty much anything with the word dredge is playable here since you draw cards from lands hitting the yard regardless of where they enter from. People have already mentioned life from the loam but the other super good dredgers are Golgari Grave-Troll and Stinkweed Imp.

Hermit Druid can dump A LOT of cards into your yard.

Entomb and Buried Alive are great for graveyard decks. As are things like Reanimate, Animate Dead, Necromancy etc

If you get enough into your graveyard Praetor's Counsel is amazing

Changes- Praetor's Counsel+ Havengul Lich

Both are pet cards of mine, Havengul Lich still a little durdly but is faster than the sorcery, and can regrow Bloom Tender or Selvala to continue the combo, and provides a good clock. It's also always fun to watch the Lich semi-single handedly take over a game.
