Rise from the Grave Discussion

Looks good! Id try to cut some cards. Generally speaking, you want to play with the minimum number of cards, 60. This gives you the best chance of drawing your best card or the card that you need in a given situation.

Id also ask yourself what kind of deck do you want to be. You have some cards like Olivia's Dragoon that are at their decks that win quickly and tend to be aggressive, whereas cards like Rise from the Grave tend to be better in longer games where you grind out the game until you take over.To over simplify, do you want to try to make a deck designed to pressure your opponent and win before they can mount a defense, or would you rather stop all their threats, and slow the game down enough that you can start casting splashy spells like Rise from the Grave? Somewhere in the middle? There isnt a right or wrong answer, but trying to figure it out might help figure out what kinds of cards youd want in the deck. As it is you seem to have a bit of both which is generally not as preferable.

Maybe you could add red too add some discard effects and discard big cards like Metalwork Colossus then bring them back with Rise from the Grave turn 3-4 using mana ramp cards. then you get a big Metalwork Colossus or some large eldrazi guy out early then stomp your opponent for the win!!!

I've had a lot of pet cards over the years.

Avatar of Woe in my earliest days. I hadn't been playing long before I saw a Visara the Dreadful hit the board. (started with Eighth Edition, my whole playgroup were Onslaught Block fans) I loved it immediately. The idea that she could just kill whatever, whenever, amazed me. In my quest to obtain a copy of my own, I instead stumbled upon the Avatar of Woe. A then-retiring friend gifted me his copy. I still own it, and love it.

Later pet cards included Hidetsugu, Korlash, Skittles, Liliana, etc.

The initial spoiler for Noxious Gearhulk put a sparkle in my eye.

But if I had to choose just one pet card, to be indisputably my favorite card to look at, to use, to read, and to own, it's Grimoire of the Dead. I love everything about this card. I once would have counted Rise from the Grave as a pet card, I love the whole flavor of bringing something back from the dead as a zombie, instead of just reanimating it as is. The Grimoire picks up everything in every grave, it does the zombies thing, it fuels itself with the discarding you have to do to build it up, the art is fantastic, it just feels so right. I love it.

Thinking on this and writing this up, I've come to the realization that I like Black waaaay too much.

Pretty cool idea, I really like where you're going with this.

I would drop Refurbish, since Rise from the Grave does what you want. Refurbish only hits artifacts.

I think you need some sort of removal package. Right now, you just have Fumigate, which is great, but it's slow, what/how are you going to deal with pesky aggro decks? Fatal Push works well with Evolving Wilds, and clues that your Tireless Tracker will create. Ruinous path can deal with Planewalkers, and so can Anguished Unmaking.

You have some large creatures, which is cool, maybe some Loam Dryads as a quick one drop to help with mana ramp? Or Deathcap Cultivator?

+1 just for doing something different with delirium.

Thanks for confirming what I've been slowly realizing over the past few days usurphling! I am trying to do too much. You just gotta love Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger for a mill deck though, right? LOL!

Anywho, yeah I think I am going to cut the 2 Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, 3 Rise from the Grave, and 1 or both of the Diabolic Tutor. Since Engulf the Shore was already in there, I have 6 slots open. So what do you think about 4 Minister of Inquiries and then 2 other blue creatures or artifacts to get more energy counters, like 2 Glassblower's Puzzleknot, or 2 Thriving Turtle, or 2 Aether Theorist? Also, maybe the 4 Catalog should be replaced with Glimmer of Genius? Glimmer does cost more to cast though. What do you think? Not sure about mono-blue, I like the Fatal Push and Murder, as well as the possibility of siding in some Yahenni's Expertise, but maybe that'll end up being too slow. I'll have to think more on that one.

What did you mean by recasting Manic Scribe? With the Hulk?!

Barren Glory.

Also Clinging Darkness and Rise from the Grave.

I may have an attachment to rather morbid flavors.
