Putrid Imp Discussion

PG7m on So how is Pauper doing?

There are some really crazy lists out there. For example I played against the Eldrazi Reanimator that can put an Ulamog's Crusher on the board as early as turn 2 with Dragon Breath using Putrid Imp and Exhume. It's not unbeatable but it'll put you on a clock for sure.

Putrid Imp and Basking Rootwalla are both not modern legal. They have only been printed in Torment and non-Modern-legal supplemental sets. As a replacement 1-drop, I could see Llanowar Mentor or Greenseeker.

Also, if you're interesting in running a B/G delve deck, Tasigur, the Golden Fang already has established himself as a powerful contender in modern.

You can run stuff like Putrid Imp or Lotleth Troll which combined with Dakmor Salvage create infinite land to graveyard effects (making the troll infinitely big).

Behold the Beyond allows you to tutor for a combo (and you're running reanimator cards so putting stuff in the yard isn't that bad).

Combining Reprocess with Splendid Reclamation can make for a huge amount of landfall triggers (and draw if your commander is out too).

Boundless Realms is a card I'd consider as well.

I'm still looking around for cards and ideas for my own non-competitive Gitrog deck.

I exchanged Stinkweed Imp for Putrid Imp.

There is another card with a similar ability; Putrid Imp. I am now considering both Olivia's Dragoon and the imp.

LeaPlath on Help me build: UB Reanimator (50€)

There are a lot better options you really should play. If you are doing budget, BR is generally a better option. You've got access to looting effects, and sideboard stuff. If you want to stay UB, here are my suggestions.

So for ways of putting stuff into graveyard. Cephalid Coliseum lets you loot, allowing you to draw into your reanimation and spells and discard the trash. Putrid Imp is a decent enough blocker who lets you discard stuff to reanimate at instant speed. Cabal Therapy can target yourself, but also be used as a way to ensure you can go off. Unmask is a solid option for stripping their hand, and yours.

For ways to reanimate, you have Necromancy, Animate Dead, Exhume, Dance of the Dead Reanimate. You want at least 12 reanimation methods. Death from Life/Death is also OK but if you can just play reanimate.

Spell Pierce is generally gonna be better than Censor. 1 mana protects your combo better, and 2 mana to pay means you can hit their tempo.

For threats, generally you play about 10 reanimator targets. Chancellor of the Annex is generally a staple. Good reanimation target and protects your first reanimation/slows down your opponent. Iona, Shield of Emeria, Tidespout Tyrant, Grave Titan, Sire Of Insanity, Inkwell Leviathan, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur (a less good sire) Sphinx of the Steel Wind, Blazing Archon are also good targets. Reanimator targets need to be big, game winning, hard to remove or shut off an entire line of play like these all do.

If you want to be really really lulzy with Buried Alive you can build a graveyard pile of Oona, Queen of the Fae and Worldgorger Dragon. Use Necromancy or Animate Dead on dragon and you create a loop of exiling everything, and returning it to play. This includes the animate dead, so the dragon dies, dead comes back and targets dragon, and you can use this combo to generate infinite mana, then finally have the animate dead come back with Oona, and use the infinite mana to deck someone.

For your sideboard, you've got Chain of Vapor for hitting graveyard hate stuff. Then I would pack your sideboard with stuff to protect your combo more, like Dispel
