Sever the Bloodline Discussion

I'm a big fan of this deck. I would recommend Avenger of Zendikar for all the sacrifice fodder he can provide. Also, as a general note josephw230, you should never include a planeswalker only for their emblem. It is very unlikely that any walker will stick around long enough for it to get its emblem off. A planeswalker needs to have abilities that are good enough that by using an ability the turn it hits the battlefield, if it is immediately removed, the combination of the ability and the removal spell the walker died to need to be worth the mana cost. If you want a planeswalker for card advantage, I would think about Ob Nixilis Reignited. He draws cards or kills scary shit. Not sure how budgeted this deck is supposed to be, but cards I feel could be easily upgraded are Scour from Existence, Sudden Reclamation, and Sever the Bloodline (it won't hit more than one thing very often with EDH being singleton and all). If you want to play reanimator, what about Exhume or Entomb? Another card draw option is Phyrexian Arena. A removal option is Maelstrom Pulse (better than Sever the Bloodline because it hits any nonland permanent type and is cheaper; the clause of hitting things with the same name is still mediocre). The deck seems really solid though, don't get me wrong. It should run okay, but these are upgrade options for the future.

Since you commented on my deck, I feel obligated to return the favor.

It doesn't seem like you have enough zombies to support Gravecrawler. Having played it in many decks, Deadbridge Chant is pretty slow for 6 mana. I usually find Reassembling Skeleton more helpful for several reasons.

I'm personally also not a fan of Death's Presence, but that's because I play in very competitive metas where creatures rarely manage to hit opponents (and Invisible Stalker isn't in GB alas). If your meta's casual, it's pretty good, I guess.

Is Living Death worth it here? It doesn't seem like you have a high enough creature count/enough sac outlets to make sure that you'd get more value than opponents would. Again, though, my meta's pretty GY-heavy, so maybe my sample's skewed.

Add Grave Pact, possibly replacing Butcher of Malakir. Enchantments survive much better than creatures.

You don't have any mass removal. That's a fatal flaw, and in this deck, it helps you a lot as well (triggers all of the death triggers simultaneously).

You don't seem to have too much card draw (aside from Slave, Abomination, and Clamp, which are of course fantastic). Fecundity, Grim Haruspex, Reaper of Souls, or Dark Prophecy could help with that.

I've never liked Sever the Bloodline in EDH, and I prefer Maelstrom Pulse in its slot. The only time you'll hit multiple things is with tokens, and in that case, destroy is just as good. And although exiling a creature is of course better, the added flexibility from Pulse overcomes that, I think.

You have none of the cards to protect your fragile commander, which the deck kind of relies upon. Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots and Champion's Helm and Asceticism can help with that.

You don't seem to have many sac outlets? Without them, it seems like the deck would kind of stand still, since you can't control the timing of your death triggers.

Oh, and I'd add Corpse Connoisseur ;)
