Rotlung Reanimator Discussion

Gadianten on Orzhov Cleric Tribal EDH

5 months ago

I love cleric tribal, I realize this is a jank deck but with some focus it can also be effective. I think the first trick is to synergize with your command and find clerics that can be sacrificed for gains the second is to find ways to drain their health quickly so you can focus on the first.

The best way to life drain is probably with Exsanguinate, Debt to the Deathless, Torment of Hailfire or similar spells so that your commanders to hand ability can be utilized.

The next one is not quite so easy and needs tuning to make really good, but I would recommend clerics like Benevolent Bodyguard, Children of Korlis, Dark Supplicant with Scion of Darkness, Frontline Medic, Nova Cleric, Remorseful Cleric, Sanctum Guardian and Selfless Spirit for creatures that can be utilized well with your commander and as a bonus its flavorful to have fanatical priests dedicated to some grim god.

Generally useful clerics matter cards would be Edgewalker, Ancestor's Prophet, Battletide Alchemist, Rotlung Reanimator and Whipgrass Entangler.

A little combo for Starlit Sanctum is Daru Spiritualist + Shaman en-Kor to gain some arbitrarily high life total.

In tribe Card draw considerations are Tymna the Weaver, Bygone Bishop and Twilight Prophet.

I don't know if you will continue to develop this but I would like to see your take on it as you evolve it.

Gadianten on Ayli Clerics

I have made cleric deck my self with Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim as the original commander but generally found Ravos and Tymna better due to card draw. That said there are some recommendations I have found from personal experience with Ayli you may find helpful. I generally found I had two main issues with the deck and it was gaining enough life quickly to bring Ayli online and then having enough bodies to act as fodder for said ability. With that in mind I will try and make suggestions that generally forward those causes.

Lifeline, I cant recommend this enough it does EVERYTHING your commander wants, while it may allow for opponents to benefit at first, reaching the magical 50 life exile enabler for your commander is easy then you can start exiling the problems. As an added note you can use things like Fiend Hunter or Containment Priest to keep your opponents from taking advantage of it, just sac Containment Priest in response to the Lifeline triggers to prevent your self from getting hosed.

Patriarch's Bidding and Living End are also pretty good recursion.

I assume your exclusion of Exquisite Blood with Sanguine Bond in the deck is intentional, if its not I would add it as its a win combo. If you choose to not add in Exquisite Blood then Beacon of Immortality can be quite funny when added to Sanguine Bond.

Exsanguinate is an excellent addition alongside the Debt to the Deathless you have in there and will help make it easier to bring your commanders removal online while weakening others.

Heliod's Pilgrim with Gift of Immortality is a nice way to fuel your commander and generally helpful.

Remorseful Cleric Excellent graveyard removal and in tribe.

Conspiracy should be added to go with Rotlung Reanimator as all your creatures become clerics including tokens. This means you can sac tokens to make more tokens, in short its one of the holy grail's your commander wants for sacrificial fodder.

Custodi Soulcaller decent aggressive in tribe low cmc reanimation. I would also consider Sun Titan as the reanimation is very useful even if its not in tribe.

Skirsdag High Priest, sacrifice something make a 5/5 flyer once a turn seems helpful.

Evangel of Heliod I have had missed results in the past but it does provide tokens, though including an Elspeth, Sun's Champion is probably a better idea.

Also, as you are gaining a lot of life you might consider things such as Greed and Necropotence to synergize with your strategy and get you cards.

DrukenReaps on Shirei Tokens Help Please

7 months ago

So I've settled on Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker to command my Shadowborn Apostles in this deck Reaps Pawns.

I want the deck to focus on making tons of tokens. So far I have Abhorrent Overlord, Ogre Slumlord, Pawn of Ulamog, Rotlung Reanimator, Sifter of Skulls, Open the Graves, and Desecrated Tomb.

If there are others I've missed or you have other thoughts for the deck I'd like to hear about it. Thanks.

I'd take out Rotlung Reanimator and Conspiracy as the latter does virtually nothing without the former and the former is useless without the latter. Similarly I don't see Hell's Caretaker surviving a round much, especially since you only have one Lightning Greaves effect. Finally I see Contamination and Infernal Darkness getting you A LOT of hate, so those might not be worth it.

So, knowing you, I'm surprised this doesn't have Pox in it already and it seems like Small Pox wouldn't be a bad idea either. I'd also put Merciless Executioner and Slum Reaper in the deck to maximize those effects. While on creatures, I'd add Filth since the only win cons I see are creature damage and Exsanguinate and there's very little evasion in the deck. Lastly it seems like you could use more targeted destruction so Bone Splinters and Unstable Obelisk seem like good choices.
