Reclamation Sage Discussion
13 hours ago
If you're looking to keep the high creature theme, but want to have options to destroy Artifacts/Enchantments, I will suggest to you a couple cards that might grab your interest: Reclamation Sage and Conclave Naturalists. They are of two different Converted Mana Costs (CMCs), so I would only pick one of the two and probably run two copies at most. Which one you run is up to you, but either should be fine considering that your curve is rather heavy in the 1 and 2 drop slots anyway (plus, you run multiple ways of obtaining mana). I hope this helps!

No problem, dude!
This is a pretty cool list on TappedOut that can give you a general idea for tiers and commanders that can easily be built to be utterly horrifying. The description has an overview of each tier and also has deck lists linked for some of the more popular decks in the tier.
Here's the Yisan Stax list they have linked
It's making use of that new Manglehorn as well that I only just now saw. Great piece for Yisan...It's almost a Reclamation Sage combined with Blind Obedience or Root Maze on a creature you can grab with Yisan...looks fun for a stax list, or even just a regular list since it's so one-sided!It's been updated since I looked at it last, but I started there and tweaked it to fit my own play style a little more and for my local meta.
My EDH decks average like, $400-$700. Playing against some of their $1,000+ decks is...boring or frustrating. They are so fast and consistent that they can have the game locked in their favor in the first 4 turns 9/10 and the game is over before anything else really happens (unless 2 or more of them are playing in the same group and they counter each other until one of them gets the upper hand and then proceeds to crush everyone). I try to avoid playing casual games with them because I like EDH to at least be fun and take more than 5 minutes to finish.
Yisan is a lot of fun because he lets you be more responsive to the current board state, but if you aren't interrupted, you can stomp people quickly, but you have access to enough recursion or redundancy that you can hold out in the long game as well--Super flexible deck to play.
I myself am now playing Alesha, Who Smiles at Death Reanimator and Rhys the Redeemed Tokens (though I'm about to re-work this one to be Selesnya Enchantress (under Karametra, God of Harvests or Captain Sisay); I still have all my Yisan pieces though, in case I convince myself to rebuild my deck because he is a lot of fun!
But I'm smiling thinking about the groans you'll be getting when you play some of those cards! They'll learn to hate Yisan! haha

Seedborn Muse is a better Siege Rhino for the deck. Untapping all of your lands and mana producers while controlling Ghave = tons more tokens. Look at it as mana ramp, where the formula is X * Y = Tokens. X is mana sources you control, while Y is opponents you have- so long as you have a counters source, controlling only 5 lands with 3 opponents means you have 15 tokens you otherwise would not have had, and that's just over one turn cycle.
No Eternal Witness seems bad. She can pull your Cathars' Crusade out of the bin if it gets destroyed, among many other things.
I, personally, like using creatures with Undying as sources of counters for Ghave. Controlling Geralf's Messenger means that every 2 mana spent makes someone lose 2 life and you get a token- that's pretty decent, and it won't go infinite with your current build.
No Reclamation Sage seems like an odd choice.

As for the sideboard help you want:
First Krosan Grip over Naturalize in a format with Force of Will. Tormod's Crypt to hate on reanimator is another card you should play. Null Rod to hate on any and all artifacts; and Pithing Needle to hate on everything. Another card to consider is Reclamation Sage as it comes with a body in adition to the effect.

I made a comment but will need some time to correct it my apologies.

Command Tower is always good in multicolored decks.
Those were my thoughts for now, take them with a grain of salt. I believe every EDH deck should be a reflection of what it's creator considers fun.

Have you considered Reclamation Sage or Shriekmaw? Both would do fairly well in this deck. Also I'm a little curious why you are running Boonweaver when your only aura card is Animate Dead, which he is not a legal target for.

Thanks for the reply!
So what would your thoughts be regarding having the Kiki-jiki combo in Animar? I know that a number of people consider it too slow and awkward with its mana requirement, but it does come with the benefit of being a 2-piece infinite combo that doesn't required Animar on the board. Cards like Eldritch Evolution and Vizier of the Menagerie have also gone a long way to making the combo more accessible.
Kiki-jiki combo pieces do take up a number of slots though, and can warp how the deck plays. Pestermite and Deceiver Exarch tie in well with Cloudstone Curio combos but they also make you compromise deck space that could go to other functions like more ramp, card draw, or silver-bullet cards like Scavenging Ooze.
When I first saw your list, I was surprised that it did not include Wirewood Symbiote because I thought it was a powerhouse for netting extra value and Animar counters with cards like Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Elvish Visionary, and Reclamation Sage. Would you say that there just aren't enough elves in the deck to make the Symbiote's inclusion worthwhile, or was it excluded for another reason?
