@Darkshadow327 he wants to play discard reanimation, which is why he's choosing Scarab God, honestly it's a deck I've thought about playing.

Also I agree heavily with with the Painful Quandary , Vedalken Orrery (You're too black to play Leyline, lol), Windfall , and Oversold Cemetery ; especially the Quandary it puts your opponents in a lose lose situation.

I'm not a fan of Awaken the Erstwhile.

I also think that you could really use an Ashnod's Altar for some of those X spells to get a a better pay off.

I took at look at my Thought Scour Nath! (love for you guys to take a look at this) deck for some additional adds... here's what I got.

Hey welcome to T/O arcrayne!

So if your struggling with early game being way too slow than yes your curve is way too high already. Since Markov makes tokens for you real quick, you want to use cards that are low CMC as well as give you a bunch of effects to make it worth. Here are some example cards that you don't have that can be considered using.

Those are some examples of well costed creatures that are low to drop but does things as well. Cards that aren't useful are like these one below.

Hope that kind of explains why these cards are not too great in this build. Also some tech card is Faith's Reward , absolute life saver when it comes to saving your guys from a board wipe!

Hope that helps and feel free to ask for any advice!

Here’s a few possible additions for you to mull over:

I like Hyppie mostly of random discard on a body. Most (if not all) other discard effects I have aren’t random so this is pretty helpful early game. I do focus on myself primarily because of my meta, but keeping answers from peoples’ hands is pretty imperative where I am too. I think people are more apt to choose to keep an answer in hand than a threat so I try to mitigate their amount of agency in the decision.

For the same reason I run Thespian's Stage and Cabal Stronghold with Coffers in tow too (I need so much mana), I need as much lifegain in here as possible so the more sources I can run the better. In fact my discard is there additionally to further benefit Sangromancer, and that to me is so good. I can’t justify removing either of those :(

I would, however, like to make a cut from the nonbasica for a Vesuva some time soon.

Hi Enral! Thank you for the critique!

So, Sangromancer has saved my behind on many many occasions with the lifegain I’ve gotten through it post-boardwipe or similar destruction. I feel like that’s beyond necessary really. I have used Pitiless Plunderer before for other things but I don’t really neeeeed that so much.

As for Expedition Map, I like your rationale but what do I cut for it? Any suggestions there? The deck is pretty hard to cut for at this time...

I think your deck would benefit from Expedition Map to tutor for tomb of yawg or cabal coffers. I also think Sangromancer is kind of a non-bo with what you are trying to do...maybe Pitiless Plunderer would be a better fit.

Dont know what you are trying to do with the deck since you have several cards for others builds in here.Dont see a use for Bloodbond Vampire since you not gaining much life.Bloodhusk Ritualist for my deck wasnt that good. Kheru Bloodsucker not worth since you dont have my creatures for it.No reason for him at all unless its a fillerSkeletal Changeling.Chainer's Edict feel like there are better things that do this. Planar Bridge tutors are better. Not the best for how you have this deck built right nowBlighted Fen. Geier Reach Sanitarium dont use lol. Piranha Marsh use a Swamp. Not worth it Sorin's Thirst. Wound Reflection great card but not made for this deck.

here are some better sacrifice cards: Barter in Blood Fleshbag Marauder Innocent Blood Plaguecrafter Smallpox Tyrant's Choice

better land drawMikokoro, Center of the Sea

Some suggested creatures: Asylum Visitor Crypt Ghast Dark Impostor Drana, Liberator of Malakir Magus of the Coffers Sangromancer Skeletal Vampire Stromkirk Condemned

instant/sorcery: Beseech the Queen Blood Tribute Dark Petition Diabolic Tutor Night's Whisper Read the Bones Zombify Murder Sudden Spoiling Ultimate Price Victim of Night
