Priest of Gix Discussion

Yeah, I can definitely see the appeal of keeping the Leaden Myr until you need to pop it off. My only thought with Priest of Gix was that on turn three you can cast both it and Victimize.

Since you're playing Scion of the Ur-Dragon, have you thought about running a toolbox suite of dragons that you can tutor up and then reanimate? I'm not sure what effects you might be looking for, but some of the new dragons from Fate Reforged and Dragons of Tarkir come to mind. Both Dragonlord Silumgar and Silumgar, the Drifting Death seem like they would be pretty busted to reanimate (either stealing an opponents best creature or providing you with a Hexproof threat that, in this deck can legitimately clear your opponents boards.

In response to JoshRigone, yes that is exactly what Leaden Myr is there for. Priest of Gix wouldn't really accomplish what I want though because he doesn't actually add mana so much as he just (basically) plays for free.

As to your question, I built this deck originally as an experiment just to see how well it would work. It turned to to work REALLY well in free-for-all matches and decently well in one-on-ones. This is actually what gave rise to my Death to All Who Oppose Us! deck because my friends and I usually play in 6 person free-for-alls. I have been officially banned from using either of them in our games from now on :-P

This is a really cool take on Legacy Reanimator! I'm with Tomnofx though - haven't really had much Reanimator experience myself, although a close friend of mine does play the Esper version of the archetype. The Leaden Myr caught me off guard, but I'm guessing that aside from the mana ramp it serves as fodder for your Victimizes? I would be curious how Priest of Gix would work in that spot, although that's really just because I love that card to death and want to find some deck that can use it.

One question that I do have is thus - what is your goal with this deck? Are you playing one on one competitive Legacy or more of a free for all multiplayer?

I run Buried Alive to pitch pila-pala, Palladium Myr, and some other ETB creature, then play Necrotic Ooze... infinite mana.

Priest of Gix can go infinite with some other pieces you're already running. Ashnod's Altar and Nim Deathmantle

Also, Corpse Dance is fun to abuse, and works well with Sidisi, Undead Vizier -- she doesn't exile at end-of-turn if she exploits herself.

And then there is Animate Dead, Entomb, and Necromancy...

Priest of Gix feels like it needs a home here. For example it gives you a free body to do the following:

cast lich and still have a chump blocker

equip a Inquisitor's Flail and cast a Gruesome Deformity to itself

cast a Darksteel Axe and equip itself with it

There just seems to be to many utility exploits available
