Start / Finish Discussion

Thanks! I do enjoy piloting reanimator decks. Mardu is my competitive version currently but esper is quite powerful. I put this together orginally to showcase reanimator synergy with Fabricate. That is now being reworked because fabricate colors are Green, White, Black which lack a discard mechanic outside of gate.
With regard to gearhulks. I build this to minimize the downside of G-PG (make creatures 4/4) Noxious is always good (i run him side)it loses 1 power to scarab and gift. cataclysmic can be useful depending on the matchup and loses 1 toughness. torrential is definitely problematic as long as you find interesting things to flash back, it loses 1 power 2 toughness. This was why i had smaller creatures with cool abilities. The big plus is that you can run Refurbish.
Examples of interesting instants to flashback that are NOT staples...
Time to Reflect. Consign / Oblivion. Failure / Comply. Siren's Ruse. Acrobatic Maneuver. Disappearing Act. Essence Extraction. Farm / Market. Ritual of Rejuvenation. Start / Finish. Tragic Lesson. Pull from Tomorrow. Failed Inspection. Insidious Will... i could keep going but you can see how esper can make things interesting. Nox in play, acrobatic maneuver on nox, draw, reanimate torrential, flashback acrobatic maneuever on nox again, draw a card = lols? These are all instants to make use of torrential. Go nuts!
Just remember you can always board into 1 of 3 different modes. Mode 1... creatures (like the deck i have built). Mode 2... control (like the deck you are intending to make) and finally mode 3... mill with The Scarab God+ Fraying Sanity+ Fleet Swallower+ Embalmer's Tools ...reanimated creatures are zombies. Could be interesting! Hope my passion for reanimator has been insightful lol. Like i said before i enjoy piloting these decks.Esper is very versatile.

Hi there! I like your work because i am a budget player too and W/B tokens is one of my "wanna-buy" decks, so +1.
That said, i have to ask you why do you want to play Mardu instead of Orzhov. Is it for Butcher?
Also, i have some suggestions i hope you will appreciate:
1- Falkenrath Aristocrat is a payoff in your colours which has "natural" Haste, requires sacrifices only to survive removal and grows if you feed her with human tokens.
2- Young Pyromancer would be better with more than nineteen instants and sorceries, but it's worth noting that he is cheaper than Hanweir Garrison and generates tokens without exposing himself to chumpblock.
3- I found out that Start / Finish is a solid 2x in this kind of lists thanks to its solid Aftermath side.

Don't think jace should pop up here, especially as a 1 of. I loved the jace tokens build at MTGGoldfish buuuuut i feel like there needs to be commitment to him or none. Also, I feel like you might be reaching too hard for the scarab god / tezzeret. The blue here just seems like it's going to get in the way more often than you would like. Needs more pushes and Start / Finish ... seriously it's too good with procession.

this deck was actually meant to be made around that card, that was until I realized Start / Finish did not make servos. this made them a lot more awkward and often they would just die when I have no mana where as Yahenni can just sac at any time.

Thanks for the advice, i used Sorin, Lord of Innistrad originally but i would rather have flying vampires that blood sucking lifelink vampires, and the emblem for Sorin, Solemn Visitor tends to rustle the opponents jimmies when i can get it to work.
Anguished Unmaking is a catchall card for me that i would sideboard out once i know what the opponent is playing, its just there in the first round for me to deal with enchantments, equipments or anything that frightens me hehe. It has served me well.
Im not feeling Start / Finish currently, seems kinda overpriced for both modes, im tempted to replace it with a fourth Spectral Procession, but many of the experienced guys like the added flexibility this card provides, so take my words with a pinch of salt (no pun intended)

Not really liking Fumigate in main. Have you thought about Start / Finish

I am assuming you are on a bit of a budget, which is fine. But otherwise, shock and fetchlands would help out your deck a lot. You do not need 4 Vault of the Archangels though, and I would swap some of those out for Ghost Quarters. Windbrisk Heights can also help a lot. Manabase aside, you need Spectral Procession, and targeted discard. Normally this involves 6-10 copies of a mixture of Collective Brutality, Inquisition of Kozilek, and Thoughtseize. Raise the Alarm is also much better than Gather the Townsfolk, and Sorin, Solemn Visitor is better than Sorin, Lord of Innistrad. Other walkers commonly found in BW tokens are Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, and Elspeth, Knight-Errant. Some lists have also been trying recently with Start / Finish. Here is the Primer on MTGSalvation if you want to learn more about the archetype.
