Reito Lantern Discussion
3 weeks ago
Thanks for the upvote and the suggestions! I really like Oppression. I think I left it out of my first build of this deck because I was worried that it would be too ... oppressive. Perhaps I will playtest with it some and see how it goes, I just worry that it will draw a lot of hate. On the other hand, I haven't really found too many powerful effects that will progress the discard route fast enough to slow down my play group.
I have tried to avoid running too many non-creature based effect. I find creatures can be found from the bottom of your graveyard by using lots of grenzo activation and can be recurred using Reito Lantern. This is why I have considered running Magus of the Abyss over something like Call to the Grave

What's your philosophy here? What do you want your deck to do?
Bound in Silence fits better than Pacifism since you can tutor for it. Same thing with Big Game Hunter over one of your kill spells. Pious Warrior and Shield Dancer make pretty good surprise blockers too.
You've also got pieces to a few combos but they would need a few more parts. Teysa, Orzhov Scion combos with Darkest Hour but it really needs a Blood Artist and Ashnod's Altar to work. Cho-Manno, Revolutionary combos with Pariah and Pariah's Shield. Those two also combo with Stuffy Doll.
One last Card. Conspiracy turns every creature into Rebels or Mercenaries, letting you tutor for any creature in your deck.

Voltron is a very interesting strategy to employ with Chromium. I have wanted to see what people do with him the moment I saw the leak. May I suggest you take Reito Lantern into consideration? Have a closer look at Tunnel Vision and then read Reito Lantern again. It's cloak and dagger but sometimes needs must. Telepathy will ensure you know exactly what your opponents will be up to. Esper Charm is basic Esper goodstuff. How exactly do you deal with boardwipes? Out of curiosity.
Would you be so kind as to give me some advice on one or two of my own decks? I specifically have my newest deck, Morai, and my dragon deck in mind.

Have you considered Reito Lantern as another way to recycle creatures?
Your deck is short 1 card - you only have 99 including your commander - and you have FAR too many lands (I would definitely not run more than 36, especially with such a low curve). You also have no draw effects, very little ramp, and almost no removal - I'd try Herald's Horn, Sol Ring, Braid of Fire, Talisman of Indulgence, Phyrexian Arena, Grim Haruspex, Night's Whisper, Decree of Pain, Toxic Deluge, and Patriarch's Bidding, maybe?

Reito Lantern is both really good with Sunforger and also graveyard removal (albeit somewhat slow for that). You might not need another Misteveil Plains, but I dig it in Sunforger decks. I actually used it once to keep from getting decked by restocking my library one card at a time with exactly the card I wanted... that's pretty niche but was also awesome.

I like the twist on the theme, though I wonder if it's not playing too hard against itself. For example, Gurzigost is counter intuitive to this deck as he plays against the Splinterfright. While you might want to retrieve some items from your graveyard, you may be better off just sticking things there that you're happy putting there.
Abilities that work well with this strategy include: Cycling, discard effects (including Spellshapers, & Grandeur, & Dredge) and effects that also benefit from having things in the graveyard (Threshold and Delirium). Other cards that boost themselves based upon graveyard contents (since you're already B&G, I'd suggest Lhurgoyf, Mortivore, and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord).
I also would tend to eschew non-creature spells, as they don't help pump Splinterfright. For example:
Those are just some ideas. If you'd like to see what I did with this deck, you can see it here:https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/goyf-1/
