I'm thinking about taking out Bogardan Hellkite and Rune-Scarred Demon. Not sure if this is a good idea for Bogardan Hellkite tho as hes one of my win conditions.

Shana42 on Needing help with golgari sacrifice ...

2 days ago

Hi, I am trying to put together a golgari reanimator sacrifice deck and I am having a lot of trouble shaving it down to my 99. Currently I am trying to decide on a good list of tutor cards I currently have Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Intent, Fauna Shaman, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Buried Alive, Eldritch Evolution, Dimir House Guard, Jarad's Orders, Liliana Vess, Perilous Forays, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Rune-Scarred Demon, Tooth and Nail.

If you could help me decide on a good list, want to help shave other cards out or have a few suggestions on cards to add that would be wonderful.

MindAblaze on Staples?

I didn't mention Imperial Seal because 400+ dollar cards are usually prohibitive for most players. Thats why my example compared Diabolic Tutor and Demonic Tutor. It was a simple illustration of mana efficiency and value in a easy to grok format. When you start talking about Cruel Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Diabolic Intent, Diabolic Revelation, Sidisi, Undead Vizier etc you're going to choose the card that fits your budget and your strategy the best. I don't run Demonic Tutor in my CDC build, but I do have room for Sidisi, Undead Vizier as she's easier to abuse. Deadeye Navigator decks like Rune-Scarred Demon.

Context is important, but when it matters less efficiency makes for a staple.

TheDarkSlayer21 on Mimeoplasm ETB

Fauna Shaman, Survival of the Fittest, Buried Alive and Intuition are pretty much MUST HAVES for this type of deck.

Rune-Scarred Demon, Acidic Slime, Terastodon, Woodfall Primus, Duplicant and Eternal Witness are good ETB triggers.

Hermit Druid and Mirror-Mad Phantasm can easily get a lot of cards in your graveyard.

I like running Monastery Siege, Ancient Excavation, Compulsive Research, Forbidden Alchemy, Frantic Search, and Thirst for Knowledge for draw/discarding

would also recommend running a Homeward Path in case people steal your stuff from your graveyard.

Sheoldred, Whispering One, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, and Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger are powerful cards on their own.

Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, Spinebiter and Putrefax can be extremely deadly.

I would also recommend adding in a few more board wipes, specifically Life's Finale.

If you need more suggestions, this is the deck that i made for the mimeoplasm

Bulletproofcats on [Primer] Nightmare by Design

Vasseer Thank you again for reading through my explanations. Now as for you suggestions, everything but Chittering Rats has been in the deck at some point.

Nether Traitor's body is irrelevant as he won't be around to block or attack. Is ran Reassembling Skeleton over him for awhile and since I always have a creature dying Traitor is cheaper to bring back.

Dictate of Erebos was also in the deck along with Butcher of Malakir. Decided I didn't need all that.

Library of Leng is there as a just incase. If I have Necro out and need my cards it allows me to put them into my hand and not exile the rest. and I don't need Chainer to waste mana keeping a creature. Don't want to replace the lands I already have.

Mindcrank over anything else because it doesn't require anything after its cast. I don't need to dump mana into Chainer into it. I have Mindslicer for that.

Dark Depths is a card i have never really liked, plus 30 mana is better used else where.

Despise will be switched out for Thoughtseize I was using it in another deck and slipped my mind on putting it back it.

Night's Whisper will probably find its way in as I want to run both.

Darkness being able to tutor for it and cast in response to being dealt lethal has saved me quite a few times.

Rune-Scarred Demon ran for a long time. decided I had enough tutor effects. I do side board it though.

Infernal Darkness I figured I have the tutors to pull and stick Contamination I don't need a second one.

Skullclamp was omitted because of Necro, I have it side boarded though.

Laquatus's Champion I decided against this as that is really mana intense and its a dead card IMO if I draw it.

All in all you are right that Chainer isn't that best at all. I liked that challenge of it. Also never played the deck 1v1 as I know Ill be murdered. But I don't mean to come off rude! I am always playing this deck and all your suggestions are in the side board. They will be rotated in and possibly permeant as the deck evolves! Thank you again! and happy deck building
