Rescue from the Underworld Discussion

Pal00ka, I like a lot of your comments. I definitely will put a copy of Rescue from the Underworld in the deck. As far as lands, I don't think there is too many enter-the-battlefield tapped lands. Most of them have a condition that allows them to be untapped or cycle. Also I think there is a lot of ramp in the deck. Definitely need card draw and will work on that. Again thanks for the suggestions.

Phyrexian Delver, Phyrexian Reclamation, Rescue from the Underworld are a few of my favorite reanimation spells.

At a glance I think you have way too many enters-the-battlefield-tapped lands and not enough ramp to support a 3-color deck unless your meta is super slow.

Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Reya Dawnbringer seem win-more to me. I wouldd cut for something useful at all stages of the game not just when you're ahead.

Panharmonicon and Strionic Resonator are fun with all of the ETB triggers too.

You also have near to no card advantage (3-4, if you count Gonti). Costly Plunder, etc. are fun because you want creatures in the yard anyway, why not get draw out of it too?

At the beginning of your combat phase, if you control at least three creatures, you may pay . If you do, until the end of the turn creatures you control gain banding, have base power and toughness 3/3, and "This creature can't attack.", get +0/+2, gain lifelink, and "At the beginning of your end step, exile this creature. If you do, return it to play and create a 1/1 white Citizen token at the beginning of your next upkeep." until your next turn.

Make a card that uses many steps to do a simple process, e.g. (Rescue from the Underworld vs Flicker for the sacrificed creature.).

When they're released later this month, I think a copy of Dire Fleet Ravager would do you wonders, as well as Sunbird's Invocation (because pseudo-cascade is always good for shenanigans) and a Hostage Taker.

And, from older sets, not necessarily blinking your creatures, but Rescue from the Underworld and Victimize are fun. And, for actual blinking, there's Deadeye Navigator, Conjurer's Closet and, I don't know how competitive your playgroup is, so you may want to avoid it, but I've had fun with Endless Sands, but if it gets stripped, you're not gonna be happy.

If you splashed black for the Rescue from the Underworld it is really not worth it. Cost is too high..

Siege Rhino is good, however i would suggest going for 2 color.. green white to get more consistent draws and mana..

The expensive par of my deck is the eldrazi which you can replace with Lone Missionary for hp, Renegade Rallier to grab back some stuff, Fiend Hunterfor removal to up to 2 creatures.

If you could not afford a Birds of Paradise try getting 1 drop ramps such as Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, Avacyn's Pilgrim etc. They are better than 2 drops.

Some changes I thought off:

Mishra's Bauble > Sylvan Library much better draw\deck control.

Rescue from the Underworld > Defense of the Heart most likely opponent will have 3 creatures.

Grim Haruspex > Graveborn Muse seems like a better card draw, need to see if I have enough zombies\not too much.

Soul of the Harvest > Grave Titan feels like a good change as I need zombies and I need more creatures for sacrifice.

Surprised not to see Rend Flesh or the basic Murder. Dark Ritual would be good as well.

Rescue from the Underworld gets you returns. Wretched Confluence would be good too, Devour in Shadow is expensive but works.

Human Frailty is amazing when you realize more than half of all commanders are in fact Human, and a lot of really good creatures are humans too.
