Soldevi Adnate Discussion

Thanks for the suggestions chadsansing!
Phyrexian Reclamation is on my radar, I've only had a chance to play the deck twice so far. I'll be running it again a few more times this week so I'll decide after that. My concern is that I won't need the effect more than a couple of times, hence the Mortuary Mire. We'll see though!
I've considered Unspeakable Symbol but rejected it because it just didn't seem to do enough. Bone Splinters is nice, if I need more removal it'll definitely be one I consider! Spore Frog isn't as useful without recursion and I rely too much on tokens for Soldevi Adnate I think. Necrotic Ooze and Vigor Mortis are too high on the curve for what they do I think.

I love it - working on non-budget list over at Mazirek Counters.
Have you tested with Phyrexian Reclamation? That might be a useful 2DH recursion effect. Unspeakable Symbol is another enchantment that might be useful. Bone Splinters is a sac-friendly piece of removal. Spore Frog and Soldevi Adnate might be useful sac creatures/outlets. Necrotic Ooze might be cool. Vigor Mortis brings a creature back from the graveyard with counters.
Have fun brewing!

It'd be interesting to run an enchantress package with the number of enchantments you have. Cut some fat dragons/bad enchantments and artifacts for:
- Argothian Enchantress / Mesa Enchantress / Verduran Enchantress / Enchantress's Presence / (maybe) Femeref Enchantress
- Mirari's Wake or Dictate of Karametra or Heartbeat of Spring (or Zhur-Taa Ancient or Overabundance if you're edgy)
- Burgeoning + Exploration + (maybe) Manabond
Otherwise I'd run the most color-useful signets for fixing and Fellwar Stone. Amulet of Vigor if you really want to keep running taplands. Commander's Sphere and Darksteel Ingot are pretty mediocre. Don't know about Herald’s Horn.
Dorks to consider:
On theme and maybe useful:
- Dragonmaster Outcast
- Balefire Dragon
- Dragonlord Dromoka / Dragonlord Silumgar / Dragonlord Ojutai
- Kokusho, the Evening Star
- Mirrorwing Dragon
- Thundermaw Hellkite
- Kargan Dragonlord (just a neat card)

Saw the reddit thread, but since I don't actually have a reddit account I figured I'd comment here since Liliana is one of my favorite commanders. Cards you're not running that I'd highly recommend are Soldevi Adnate, Anvil of Bogardan, & Ill-Gotten Gains.
As for cuts I would try to pick on a strategy and streamline it. I'd start with lower impact cards like Sangromancer which does nothing but gain life which you don't really care about, or Liliana's Reaver which is overall pretty mediocre. You can either go the route of cutting the "goodstuff" cards like Phyrexian Obliterator or Sorin Markov, or you can cut down on either the discard, reanimation, or zombie themes. I personally play Liliana with a focus on the discard aspect, a secondary focus on Reanimation, & 0 focus on zombies.

First off, interesting list. However, I think I'm seeing two mistakes in your infinite combo list:
Deadeye Navigator + Cloud of Faeries; this is only an infinite mana combo if one of the lands you untap can generate more than one mana; like Azorius Chancery. Otherwise, all this combo does is generate infinite ETB's for something.
Nim Deathmantle + Soldevi Adnate + creature with CMC5+; this is not an infinite combo unless you can find a way to untap Soldevi Adnate each time the sacrificed creature returns to the battlefield. Intruder Alarm could help you in this regard.

Ok, a couple things:
Soldevi Adnate can't sacrifice mana rocks, only black or artifact creatures. To sacrifice my mana rocks I'd need Priest of Yawgmoth. I thought about including them, but since my ramp is spilt between creatures and non-creatures, most mana rocks have low CMCs, and every creature that survives to 8 mana is an extra tutor for Razaketh, I felt they weren't worth it.
Infernal Darkness doesn't cut the mana produced by lands. It just changes the color. I thought hosing everyone might be worth slowing down a little, and you can just sacrifice it the turn you want to go off. I'll probably cut Contamination, it was in there from when tutoring Bloodghast seemed like a good idea.
I'll look into those other edits.

Woops, forget what I said about Dark Confidantit was already in here. In replacement for the suggestion I did I would slot in Soldevi Adnate, since it can sacrifice creatures you already have in play or useless mana rocks like Grim Monolith orBasalt Monolithto ramp for your combo turn, and it is a creature to sacrifice.

Thanks, the deck is a lot of fun to gold fish.
