Rakshasa Gravecaller Discussion

Always happy to see new token brews! Though I am faithful to my tried and true BW Tokens, I would be happy to help however I can. The first thing that I would focus on is your land base, because as I am sure you are already aware, every great deck starts with a great land base. I know you're looking for more budget friendly options, so Marsh Flats may not be ideal. However, Bloodstained Mire isn't too expensive as of now. Same with Godless Shrine and Sacred Foundry. Since you are playing a 3 color deck, you shouldn't need to buy a playset of any of these lands. Blackcleave Cliffs would also be a notable inclusion. As to what to replace with these, I personally think a playset of both Isolated Chapel and Clifftop Retreat is a bit much.

As far as the rest of your cards go, I would replace Goblin Rabblemaster with Monastery Mentor and consider replacing Rakshasa Gravecaller with Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet. Since many of your creatures provide tokens, I would also contemplate replacing the Raise the Alarm and Secure the Wastes with more reactive spells like Lightning Helix and Dreadbore. If you do decide to go this route, I would take out Intangible Virtue, as it may wind up being a dead card since Mardu Tokens have a lot more creatures than BW Tokens do. Lastly, whatever you decide to do, I advise you to try and find space for a playset of Path to Exile, as the card goes a long way. Hope I was able to help, feel free to look at my BW Tokens list if it has a chance of helping at all, and if I can help you out with anything else please feel free to ask!

Hey, thanks for the comment! I also love tokens, I actually have an abzan tokens list too. The cards you mentioned are great, and I was looking at them when i was building the deck, but had problems with most of them. Spectral Procession can just be hard mana wise, i dont think the deck will be able to get 3 white on turn 3 enough to justify it, Dragon's Fodder and Gather the Townsfolk are both good, but sorcery speed hurts them a bit for me. Hordeling Outburst is a fun card too but has a bit of a similar problem to Spectral Procession. I also decided to cut those cards to go a bit more of a controlling route, with more disruption and removal, which combos well with the Young Pyromancer. Butcher of the Horde probably isnt the strongest card for sure, but him and Rakshasa Gravecaller are just pet cards of mine that i really wanted to put into a deck so thats why they are in there.
Hero of Bladehold is an amazing card for sure. I run 2 in my abzan list, which is a deck I really love to play, and she has been super powerful there.Thanks for the tips! Very much appreciated, I'll definitely check out your deck and see if I can help you out at all!

Would not hurt to have a few Dragon Fodders, just for fuel. Maybe even a Rakshasa Gravecaller for fun. +1

AgentGreen it's really about not having too many Non-Zombie Creatures, so I can get most stuff back from the Graveyard, and also draw a card with Cemetery Recruitment.

I made an exception for Sanitarium Skeleton, as it can recur itself, and Rakshasa Gravecaller, as it adds to the overall Zombie count.

es0p0s I don't think Tragic Slip is Standard legal.

Who said it's trying be aggro? It usually outlasts my Opponent and wins in the late game.

Rakshasa Gravecaller has saved my neck too many times to take out. It sits outside Languish range and brings emergency blockers to the field.

Cruel Revival is too perfect in this deck - kill your Creature AND get one of my Zombies back from the grave is too good to pass up.

If that card proves to be too slow I just replace it with some Sideboard cards.

Murder isn't quite as good as the selection I have to choose from: Ultimate Price costs less, Ruinous Path can remove Planeswalkers, Oblivion Strike takes care of Indestructible Creatures (including Brisela, Voice of Nightmares), as does Ruthless Disposal (also a two for one), and Infinite Obliteration usually removes more than one pesky Creature from the game.

I will keep Murder in mind as a possible substitution for Ruthless Disposal, although it won't work against Brisela, and Ruthless Disposal will.

It should also be remembered that putting four Liliana in this deck might not be a smart way to go, as any of them that are in Planeswalker mode cancel each other out.

I like the new Liliana better for this deck, as the first one is actually surprisingly easy to remove while she is in her Creature mode, and the new one fits better thematically.

Most times the new Liliana will drop a heap of Zombies on the field for me right away. I know the recursion of the other Lili is also cool, but she will usually only give me one or two Creatures per turn, as long as it wasn't a Token that died.
