Remember that you can use double brackets to link cards.

[[Rise from the Grave]] and [[Voldaren Pariah]]
becomes Rise from the Grave and Voldaren Pariah  Flip

To answer your question, yes it would still be counted as a zombie. Besides the origin Planeswalker cards like Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, transform creatures remain on the battlefield when they flip. They are still counted as the same object they were before they flipped.

When Rise from the Grave returns Voldaren Pariah  Flip, it is now treated as a Zombie. When it flips into Abolisher of Bloodlines  Flip, it is still counted as the same object, so it will still be treated as a Zombie in addition to its other types.

sieht auf auf den ersten blick ganz gut aus. die wincon mit bonehoard + jarad und das thema um sacrifising. wichtig sind Blood Artist, Falkenrath Noble, Zulaport Cutthroat usw. msstest trotzdem zum einen die curve runterbekommen und zum anderen viel ramp adden. Verdant Force wrde ich da rausnehmen, macht viel zu wenig fr die irren manakosten. golgari hat grn, das sollte man auch nutzen und mehr rampen. Rise from the Grave wrde ich cutten fr etwas a la Fertilid, Yavimaya Elder, Primal Druid oder Farhaven Elf, damit du das ausnutzen kannst mit reanimate.. in sachen sac outlets (mglichkeiten kreaturen zu opfern), du hast den high market schon, wrde dir raten noch zwischen Ashnod's Altar, Greater Good und Birthing Pod was rauszusuchen damit es nen weiteren bereich abdeckt, draw ist ganz wichtig eigentlich. weitere empfehlungen wren Harvester of Souls. eine mglichkeit ne infinite dmg combo zu spielen wre Mikaeus, the Unhallowed und Triskelion, wenn dir die karten nicht zu viel kosten.

Phyrexian Arena und Primal Growth sind gut.

My reanimator

I was running a deck simalar to this one for a while. Just made a tapped out to link to it.

I sided the 2x Cataclysmic Gearhulk for 2x Fleetwheel Cruiser since when I was playing artifact heavy decks werent a thing.

I noticed a man land or two were nice mana sinks late in the game when your in top deck mode. I chose to run 2x Rise from the Grave instead of 3x Ever After allowing me to get around to casting it soon by 1 turn.

I've 4-0'd a few FNM's then there were days I 0-4'd just mattered who showed up and brought the hot net deck.

all in all I love to see others playing reanimator, I have so much fun with it idc if i 0-4. The look on the OP face when you bring a noxious back 3x in one game is enough.

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!!!

Tyrant-Thanatos on Do you have any "pet" ...

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.
