Priest of Gix Discussion

Black Market can get crazy really quickly -- but by the time it's out and producing value, it's essentially a win more card. That, and anyone paying attention will blow it up before you get anything from it. Works better in stax decks that depend on people not being able to use resources to deal with it in time -- would run in Nath, but probably not here.

What you should probably run is Priest of Gix -- a free body with Chainer and some major headache inducing combo fuel

Contamination will keep stuff in their hand for you to make them discard and may win games by itself. Nether Traitor is a cheap way to feed it. Recurring Nightmare is a must for these kinds of decks and Recur likes Priest of Gix. If getting Waste Not is crucial then Diabolic Intent and/or Beseech the Queen might improve consistency. Ratchet Bomb can deal with swords and tokens.

Unfortunately, the Bringer has a color identity of all colors, and so it is unplayable in aa deck with only black and red.

I don't think Priest of Urabrask is super worth your time unless I'm missing some combo. Same for Priest of Gix. Hearthcage Giant, Polluted Dead, Rage Thrower, Sigiled Skink, thunderbrute, and Petradon are all also pretty mediocre. I would suggest a slightly more versatile removal suite, including Dreadbore and Chaos Warp. The other think I would suggest is more ramp, as Grenzo is only good if you've paid a decent amount into him. I'm thinking things like Darksteel Ingot, Commander's Sphere, Worn Powerstone, etc. Gilded Lotus and Thran Dynamo are also options if you want to put a lil more money towards it.

Temple of Malice is also a decent option.

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?
