Reiver Demon Discussion

Ares111123 I never thought of Reiver Demon as an option. I think it depends on what draw cards I put in in place of Serum Visions and Fallen Ideal because I like that Dregs of Sorrow destroys creatures and draws cards. Even if it is a slightly worse board wipe than Reiver Demon.

I really appreciate the feedback on the 8 non-zombie creatures I got going on. I've personally never run into that problem yet but being as that you did it's obviously a possibility so Arcane Adaptation should probably find a home in here unless i trade out some non-zombs for zombs.

I adopted the binder process so i purchased 1 of every edh stable and am able to use them in all of my decks so i dont have the first problem. I'd drop the visions, fallen ideal, and dredge sorrow for erebos, arena, and Reiver Demon. Also love the idea of adding the other 3 cards. I play tested the deck against my No Riku? No Problem!, Natures Overwhelming Surge, and Simic Shenanigans decks. It played great but ended up losing after the animar deck took 3 turns in a row. What i found was i ended up holding cards like Call to the Grave because Crypt Ghast isn't a zombie. To prevent it you could add Arcane Adaptation and with 8 of your creatures not being zombies this would give 1/5th of your creatures the same treatment as zombies.

DrukenReaps on Creatures that would be fun ...

Some of the bigger ETBs would be good. Reiver Demon, Myr Battlesphere, Avenger of Zendikar are a few.

Bxbx, you make a good point of consideration there. Perhaps it is more worth looking into. Perhaps I'll put Reiver Demon in the sideboard to test a bit more, and try to acquire the other one, too. Thanks for laying that out for me there.

chaosumbreon87, that's an interesting point, too. I suppose if anything, it at least can tap for each turn. It might be worth a look. Thanks.

Ok, you're right that Reiver Demon and Dread Cacodemon are no great reanimation-targets. But In Garruk's Wake isn't a good target for reanimation either. So my idea was, that the Dread Cacodemon in hand at least gives the option for discarding to volrath besides giving the alternative option to wipe the board, while In Garruk's Wake does only give one option at all.

Utimately it's a decision between having a [onesided boardwipe incl. planeswalkers for 9 mana] or having a [onesided boardwipe excl. planeswalkers and tapping your creatures for 10 mana plus the option to alternatively combo with your commander]. In this case I would prefer the extra versatility over the better effectiveness/efficiency.

You're probably right that Toxic Deluge is even better than both though.

CrazedPorcupine, thanks for the comments!

Bxbx, I like the ability Dread Cacodemon brings to the table, just not how it does it. I had Reiver Demon in the deck, but I took it out along with some of the Eldrazi I had because their ETB effects only work if cast from my hand. My goal is to discard and then reanimate, and I found myself never holding onto those cards to actually cast, and if I did, it takes a big swing away from Volrath. I am considering going after Toxic Deluge, though, as another option for board wipe.
