Reference your question on the Advertise your Deck page, I think you'd be ok in cutting Soul of Innistrad for K'rrick. Reanimator doesn't seem to be a major theme, and SOI is rather mana-intensive, and does't fit your legendary theme. Chainer, Dementia Master would fit your theme better, I think. If you can afford a copy, Volrath's Stronghold would add another element of recursion, as well.

I think this idea of pooling all possible good value cards in one place for this commander was an excellent idea. The convesations we are sharing will also be a whealth on knowledge in a couple of months from now.

I’m still researching different synergies in different toolboxes.

One entire category that should added in this knowledge pool is Anti-Graveyard Hate. GY hate is a huge weakness here. I know we are all focused on tokens, value, ramp, etc etc. But all it takes is one well timed Bojuka Bog or a Leyline of the Void and we are back to the Stone Age.

I also think an added category for bulk recursion strategies should also be added and discussed. Most of these would need to be planned around obviously, but I’m referring to spells like Lifeline , Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker , Endbringer's Revel / Soul of Innistrad , and the synergy between Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Cauldron of Souls . Etc...

Hello everyone!

I'm currently tuning my EDH Challenge: Feed the Grimgrin!. The deck is a weird mix of combo and reanimation and winnig frequently involves going through some solitaire-ish turns. During testing I often find myself stuck in a situation where I need a creature that, while in a graveyard, can reanimate other creatures.

I tried searching Gatherer with so many different criterias, but the closest I could get was Soul of Innistrad's second ability (which is expensive and puts the creatures into hand, not play).

I have a strong feeling that no such card exists, but I will give it a last try and ask here: Is there a creature card that can reanimate other creatures from graveyard to play, while being in the graveyard itself?

stellarstormtrooper66 Thanks for the input! I agree that there need to be more lands in the deck and ill be looking for cards to drop to add a couple. As for rocks i added Hedron Archive because it has card draw as well as adding mana. More rocks could be necessary but i will resolve that as i play with the deck. I personally dont think adding both boots are necessary for giving etrata haste due to the large number of tutors present. Also i didnt add greaves because Etrata needs to be targeted in order to avoid the shuffle trigger along with the cloning. I had known about the ninja interaction which is why i have added 4 of them. I dont like sacrificing Etrata because that either requires me to put her in the zone or in the grave and then requires me to put in recursion as well so it ends up being more efficient to leave that out and add bounce and flicker instead. The tutors are very important in here but not necessarily for Mirror Gallery, they are for Strionic Resonator primarily along with any flicker or control i need. Rings of Brighthearth is for copying Strionic Resonator ability primarily however it hs a few more niche uses. Conjurer's Closet has a wide range of targets in the creature category for utility, such as Noxious Gearhulk and Mulldrifter. Soul of Innistrad is just there for late game recursion if i need it, however i can see how it wont be too useful and its in my consideration for dropping. The original plan was to use Heidar, Rimewind Master as a way to return Etrata every turn and he is being considered for dropping as well since i have so many ways of avoiding the shuffle trigger.

Some initial thoughts, totally just my opinion, so please take it with a grain of salt:

I'm surprised to see 33 lands, I've never run a deck that low before. The lowest I've gone for a 4cmc commander is 35. 33 might be possible if you're running some 0 CMC moxes, but even then I would hesitate to go that low.

Mana rocks / ramp: I understand if you don't have these cards, but I would add cards like Coldsteel Heart, Dimir Signet,Star Compass, even Fellwar Stone. I don't like Hedron Archive b/c its not under your commander's CMC. I think you could lower your deck's CMC by taking out 3 CMC rocks for 2 CMC rocks. Also, I only counted 5 rocks. Without green, I'd be tempted to run closer to 8 honestly - even though they're boring cards.

I think haste is absolutely critical for this commander. Nice to see Swiftfoot Boots but do you have a Lightning Greaves you can add?

I like the idea of phasing at instant speed in order to mess with the stack to keep her around. I think you could also consider sac outlets like Ashnod's Altar if you wanted to run some recursion as well.

You may already know this, but I think you can ninjutsu her off the field once her ability is on the stack in order to prevent her from going back into the deck/command zone. A often overlooked trick with ninjas is that the unblocked attacking creature can still be returned after the damage has been delt, though people usually want the Ninja effect to trigger.

I see a lot of transmute cards, but I'm not entirely sure what you're trying to tutor for here. Are your main targets Mirror Gallery and Etrata (assuming you are willing to let her go into the deck)? If you plan on getting Mirror Gallery often, you may want to protect it with cards like Padeem, Consul of Innovation.

Some cards that confuse me a little: Rings of Brighthearth? I didn't see any great targets, but I may be overlooking something. Conjurer's Closet I don't see a large number of relevant targets. Soul of Innistrad This seems like a high CMC creature that could be replaced with a board wipe. On the topic of board wipes, you may want more just cause of the Voltron style of play here that may struggle with opponents who build up a large board. Heidar, Rimewind Master Are you running snow covered lands?

Overall, I like it - a very different type of commander deck for dimir. Looking forward to facing it.
