Razaketh, the Foulblooded Discussion
1 month ago
It may seem cheap and doesn't fit the theme of your deck per se, being able to sacrifice the leonin with Razaketh, the Foulblooded infinitely is a nice thing to do in any black/white deck!

Great, seeing something decent going on in Orzhov :) As for your gameplan you can probably take inspiration off of this list: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/lurrus-stax-cedh/
I'm playing combo-teysa since 6 years. You're most certainly right on your choice of commanders since card advantage is crucial in strong metas. However Teysa, Orzhov Scion lead my deck leaning to a markov-like list (https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/symphony-of-the-knight-primer/), trying to generate value from bodys with cards like Grim Haruspex and Carnival of Souls. First target for tutoring is always Skullclamp which is awesome when teysa is out and/or you play cards like Pitiless Plunderer and Zombie Infestation which can loot through your whole deck and need minimal setup. Most compact combos are the dead-cat-loop and gravecrawler and carrionfeeder on your choice of Phyrexian Altar, carnival or pirate.
If there gonna be some ideas thrown together I can see some proper Orzhov Lists coming up :) great to see that there's more people into it!

Paying 8 and most of your life for 35 cards, why not just use Peer into the Abyss? But also I think that if it was unbanned Griselbrand would take the place or be slotted in along side with Razaketh, the Foulblooded in cedh reanimation builds.

In the past I have seen some Edgar Markov lists which are designed to cheat out Razaketh, the Foulblooded and then leverage Edgar's eminence ability with a bunch of 1 drop vampires to create a tutor chain and allow you to deploy your combo. So while Edgar isn't a combo in the command zone like first sliver is, he acts as a combo assister which you don't technically need, but who helps streamline the deck lines. In addtion, you can use Oathsworn Vampire as both a tutor chain and actual combo outlet with Razaketh.
I can't talk to how good the combo packages actually were, only that I had seen them employed like this in a similar way that you would see Razaketh lines in a W/G/B deck. They were interesting builds for sure. Just comes down to whetehr they were actually playable or not, which I'm unable to comment on.

Hello! Thank you for the upvote and comment; I've had alot of fun with this brew. Steel Hellkite is mostly just a creature catch-all with his sweep ability. It's also nifty with Necrotic Ooze as a way to sneak in a sweeper effect. That's the main purpose, but Razaketh, the Foulblooded is another great option and I have him in the maybe board as well.
I'll hop over and take a look at your list. Have a good one!

Hey man, love the deck! Gyruda is a very interesting route to take with Sidisi, and I'm all for it. Just a questions, though:
- Why Steel Hellkite? It's a decent reanimation target at best, but I would prefer something that has an immediate effect on the battlefield, like Razaketh, the Foulblooded.
One last thing: Do you think you could help me with my Sidisi deck? I'm always looking for a fresh pair of eyes on it. Hope this advice helps, and as always, Happy Tapping!

Destroy your opponents with nice combos like Athreos, God of Passage + Edgewalker + Shadowborn Apostle and combine them with loads of infinite combos, that'll give you: 1. Infinite mana and one alternative win Strategy ( Ashnod's Altar, Pitiless Plunderer + Revel in Riches ) 2. Infinite creatures ( Xathrid Necromancer ), infinite creature removal 3. Infinite carddraw combos ( Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos, Reaper from the Abyss + Kothophed, Soul Hoarder ) 4. Infinite Health and Damage towards your Opponents with Blood Artist, Cruel Celebrant, Daxos, Blessed by the Sun, Falkenrath Noble, Pious Evangel / Wayward Disciple, Zulaport Cutthroat, Syr Konrad, the Grim 5. Infinitly big creatures with Cathars' Crusade, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled 6. Infinte Mill with Altar of Dementia and with Razaketh, the Foulblooded 7. (Infinite mana + Rune-Scarred Demon) you have infinte tutors. 8. If you want, you can have Infinite carddraw directly through the Harvester of Souls or Skullclamp. Remember that you can tutor all demons for one mana by sacrificing six Shadowborn Apostle. You can get theese really fast with Remembrance. Also you have enough ramp (apart from the infinte combos) through Dark Ritual, Orzhov Locket, Orzhov Signet, etc. If you want all that faster, just put in Teysa Karlov in, who doesn't only trigger all aristocracy abilities twice, but also boosts the Xathrid Necromancer. If one of your Opponents wants to pay your Athreos tax, you can return all of your Apostles with Immortal Servitude really cheap. Then I added some removal, some boardwipes to round it up a bit and yeah. Now you'll get tired of MTG, because you almost always win.

Hello fellow Kaalia enthusiast! Inserts obligatory link to my own deck: Still Better than Dan Brown.... Right, with that out of the way...firstly, I notice that while you call this a reanimator deck and have plenty of ways to cheat things out of the graveyard, you're missing things to stack it with. Cards like Entomb and Buried Alive would let you sculpt your graveyard into the perfect stockpile of threats. If you didn't already have loads I would recommend another actual wrath over Terminus considering you have more ways to get creatures back out of the graveyard than your library, but with that being the case you might be better off with either more unconditional removal (Vindicate/Anguished Unmaking) or even Armageddon if you don't mind having no friends. Aurelia's Fury and Boros Charm are great modal spells too! Honestly can't recommend Reconnaissance highly enough but Dust Corona and Phyrexian Reclamation do work for me. As for creatures, I wouldn't bother with Bloodgift Demon (take Rune-Scarred Demon for loops with Reya and a sac outlet such as Razaketh, the Foulblooded); Bogardan Hellkite (you'll probably do more overall with Warstorm Surge or the new Terror of the Peaks); Indulgent Tormentor (your opponents won't ever hesitate to pay the cost and the body is underwhelming for a demon); Vampire Nighthawk (good card but this deck can do better, for similar cost a Magus of the Moat or Grand Abolisher can make you very hard to assail). I'd suggest considering Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Doom Whisperer and Rakdos, Lord of Riots as other strong picks for potential upgrades. Finally you've got a decent mana base, but I'm a little surprised to see no fetches/utility lands like Volrath's Stronghold considering you have actual legacy duals. How can you be running a Scrubland but be unable to upgrade your Forsaken Sanctuary to a Godless Shrine and still be playing with Temple of the False God? This last one is one of the worst lands out there considering it can easily be a dead draw and doesn't even give you colour - you're running plenty of basics so even an Evolving Wilds would be better in almost every case! Anyways hope that's given you some ideas.
