TheChaosVault on Misery Crusher

Soul Exchange is not Pauper legal, whatever TO may say. However, Exhume, which does not require you to have a creature to exile, is. Also, Ulamog's Crusher and Haunting Misery, while both perfectly fine wincons by themselves, don't really fit in the same deck. Misery is ideal for combo decks such as Cycling Songs and One Land Spy, whereas Crusher is best when reanimated early before the opponent can answer the threat. It would likely be better to focus either on the Misery combo plan or add more reanimation targets.

carpecanum: I have actually been thinking about adding Ebon Praetor just for laughs. I have never heard of Soul Exchange, but it seems pretty good and I will at least try it out. Thanks for the suggestions!

Ebon Praetor and Soul Exchange maybe?

Ebon Praetor would mostly be for old school thrull flavor.

chadsansing on Griselbrand + Death's Shadow = (Strange) Combo

What seems most important here is to cheat a Griselbrand, Kokusho, or Crawler into play as soon as possible without playing a straight reanimator deck. We know Legacy reanimator decks can go off on turn 1 or 2, so how do we do that on a budget? I'm not sure, but here's an idea:

Start with 0-drop creatures; say 4 Ornithopter and 4 Memnite or, even better, 4 Phyrexian Walker and 4 Shield Sphere. Add some targeted discard spells that you can use on yourself, including Raven's Crime. Aim for a turn 1 that goes something like this:

  • Play a swamp.
  • Play a 0-drop creature.
  • Play a dark ritual.
  • Play a 1-drop discard spell, targeting yourself, and pitch a big critter.
  • Use the other 2 B mana to play something like Animate Dead or Soul Exchange, sacrificing the 0-drop to return the big creature into play.

You try to jam this on the play and wait a turn or two until your opponent taps out on the draw, knowing that competitive blue match-ups will suck.

What do you think? I think you could re-tool your sorceries and some of your creatures to get the 0-drops and a few 1-of big critters in (like Platinum Emperion or Massacre Wurm or Grave Titan) that help you buy time and eat removal. A Gurmag Angler would be dope here, as well. I wouldn't sweat the Ghast mana/extort if you go for budget reanimator. Ghast and Artist are the creatures I'd cut.

Potential/recommended spells:

I kind of like the idea of an unknown reanimator list. If you want to stick the current game plan, I'd play Disfigure and Dismember over Go for the Throat. Maybe sideboard it along with Doom Blade for big-mana match-ups and Darkblast which you could use on your upkeep and again after dredge/draw to snipe a Delver or Deathrite Shaman.

Just some neat cards you might like to see, hope you enjoy <3

Victimizecan be a good choice for bringing back stuff, as well as Exhume allows opponents to bring back from the grave, but usually opponents don't have as good of cards that they want to bring back Soul Exchange is also good if youre willing to sacrifice a creature, like Victimize does

As for creatures Archetype of Courage can be pretty neat as well as Windbrisk Raptor . High Priest of Penance is a pretty nice way of removing something and Palisade Giant is a really interesting wall you could add, these creatures except for High Priest of Penance have pretty high cost, but have neat effects

oh and Magister of Worth can be great for either bringing back stuff or clearing out stuff, and since teysa has protection from creatures it wouldnt be affected, or if you have something equipped with Darksteel Plate
