Putrid Imp Discussion

Do you even need Jarad? You can run something like a Lotus Petal to generate infinite mana while going off by drawing it and casting it infinite time as you infinitely dredge your deck. Then you can win with an Exsanguinate or Tendrils of Agony or something like that. That way you don't need your discard outlet to "grow" when cards are discarded, which means you open the door to more discard outlets like Oona's Prowler and Putrid Imp for added consistency.

I've been wracking my brains, but the rats you've got seem perfectly suited to the job they have. Putrid Imp is my only suggestion to replace him, as he provides a better discard outlet and has partial evasion. Also is cheaper.. Have you looked at Megrim? Could speed up their life loss while you're making them discard.

A janky possibility I thought of was Deepcavern Imp for a discard effect on my upkeep, pitching a creature I could reanimate later? It's a free card, so I mean it can't hurt my wallet to test. But I've noticed there being some plays where I don't have as many reanimate targets, which is still fine since I can control the board until I do. Putrid Imp is also a possibility.

Putrid Imp can combo with Dakmor Salvage which is just a great card with gitrog anyway

maybe swap Gruul Signet for Golgari Signet lol

Vinelasher Kudzu could be cut? just a big beater with no evasion

City of Solitude is another dosan

if you add putrid imp, maybe add a eldrazi titan so you can't mill out, maybe swap with the feldon's cane

Skirge Familiar is great! back up bloom and draws you card with the frog

I'd imagine you'd want things like Preordain, Ponder and Brainstorm to accelerate your draws to go off faster.

You'd probably want to drop to 2/3 Putrid Imps too, you don't really want to see more than one in a game, so you don't need the whole playset, especially with a lot of draw spells.

Dragon Fangs, Dragon Scales and Dragon Wings aren't really necessary either.

Nice deck, +1 from me!

@HOPMONSTER, yup alot of these cards were in my Fat Bottomed Girls (Liliana Reanimator) deck, which housed nearly all of the reanimation spells. alot of these got trimmed down to to add better support for Volrath the Fallen himself ( Whispersilk Cloak, Lightning Greaves, ect).

-Victimize is nice, but having two requirements to be met to activate means the simpler Animate Dead or Necromancy gets that spot

-Rise of the Dark Realms and Living Death funny and amazing, but im not discarding or self milling enough to warrant it

-Putrid Imp does what Necromancer's Stockpile does but cheaper, and out of 29 creatures, 3 of them are zombies

-Palace Siege is cool and has good utility with the life gain/loss

-I NEED A Sidisi, Undead Vizier

-Champion of Stray Souls is interesting... if he was legendary, hed be a great recursion/reanimator general but i dont want him in my deck, his abilities are too expensive

-Nightmare Lash and Lashwrithe may get worked in there, they combo too well with Liliana of the Dark Realms, plus they can be equipped little to no mana... i hate 4 drops though :/

ill take these under consideration, thanks for the advice and if im missing something with combos and whatnot, let me know :)

Is the goal of the deck to be competitive in legacy or casual fun?

If competitive, the deck will need to be faster. I suggest a reanimate theme with Reanimate, Animate Dead, or Exhume

You can get items into your graveyard quickly with: Putrid Imp, Tireless Tribe, Call the Bloodline, Oona's Prowler or nonbudget cards Entomb or Buried Alive

Then you will need specific angels for match ups

Iona, Shield of Emeria - shuts down any mono colored deck

Angel of Finality - shuts down graveyard decks

Linvala, Keeper of Silence - shuts down lots of creature decks

Maybe try New card Exquisite Archangel - could be good against burn or tendril/storm decks

This card doesn't see play but I like Angel of Jubilation - shuts down fetch lands, causes shocklands to come into play tapped, and makes phyrexian mana need to be paid.

If this is just casual, here are some other budget angels to consider:

Serra Avenger / Angelic Curator - 2CMC angel

Voice of All / Pristine Angel / Iridescent Angel - protection from colors

Angel of Despair - ETB destroy permanent

Magister of Worth / Sunblast Angel / Desolation Angel - ETB wrath effects

Archangel Avacyn  Flip

Happy Brewing.
