Shadow of the Grave Discussion

Hissp on Anje Filter

I found a few others (I built my own list to fish with).

Have you tested stacking the untap triggers with wheel effects and/or Necropotence . Necro seems like one of the strongest cards in the deck, as you can win during the cleanup step with B open into Dark Ritual .

Restless Dreams is a must-include. You can also stack untap triggers discarding other madness cards. It's often better than Shadow of the Grave .

I put Cabal Ritual , Rain of Filth , and Mox Amber in my list. It's a judgement call how deep into "more rituals" you wanna dive but in trying to filter-storm off I found myself often wishing for mana more than any other resource.

Bone Miser feels like HUGE value. He turns filtering into unstoppable advantage. I also threw in Reanimate for him but that might be incorrect. Maybe Skirge Familiar would also be a good include for similar reasons.

Phantasmagorian is a cute way to untap Anje for free (which might make or break comboing off)

Shadowblood Ridge gives you T1 Anje potential with Mana Crypt .

Also don't forget the newly printed Archfiend of Spite!

I cut the Dualcaster/Twinflame combo. I'm not sure how often you're leaning on that but those cards are dead outside the main combo.

I'd also cut Jeweled Amulet , as it's dead outside the combo turn. I'd think about adding the almost-as-good Skirk Prospector if you're finding me wrong about that.

I like Anje. It's a shame her name isn't Antje, but the card is cool. Lets play a looter from the comman zone, why not. She seems pretty cool with Shadow of the Grave and Garna, the Bloodflame , you just need some madness creatures. Oh, by the way: Falkenrath Gorger ?

Gherid obviously is a Selesnyan who turned away from them and joined the Gruul. The ability is pretty powerful if you can protect him.

I guess it's gonna be one of these two for me.

Return to their owners' hands all cards that were discarded to pay Encode costs this turn.

Look at the bottom card of your library. You may put it on the top of your library.

The Azorius Senate keeps meticulous records on the inhabitants of Ravnica. It is impossible to be completely forgotten.

It's basically Amonkhet's Shadow of the Grave , with some added flavor.

We haven't seen anything Rakdos or Boros or Selesnya yet that interacts with Encode. Pick one of those color combinations and either put Encode on it, or make it interact with Encode in some secondary way, as I've done.

More ideas: Psychotic Haze seems very lackluster. The Madness mechanic is the only thing that fits here, and just 1 damage doesn't seem like enough to be worth including. Another spot removal card like Bedevil , Doom Blade , the new Shenanigans , or a wipe like In Garruk's Wake , Plague Wind , or Blasphemous Act .

Shadow of the Grave seems very situational, and I think Yawgmoth's Will and/or Magus of the Will would be better options.

The discard/cycling section on EDHREC has a lot of nice things to look into, for example, Shadow of the Grave turns that filter from Varina into outright draw, Blood Scrivener is a 2 cmc zombie that acts like a Phyrexian Arena if you're dumping your hand to 0 (though I will say that's a risky prospect and the arena is more survivable).

Have you considered running discard effects like Delirium Skeins or Dark Deal ? They combo really well with the card Shadow of the Grave as well.

Have you thought about adding in tutors to streamline the deck even more. Or adding in cards like Seismic Assault in conjunction with Zuran Orb or as you have Squandered Resources to have synergy with Creeping Renaissance/Shadow of the Grave/Praetor's Counsel.

Some card you might have missed also for ramp (Oracle of Mul Daya) and protection (Constant Mists).

Hope that helps!
