Unburial Rites Discussion

  1. Solar Flare is already the name of deck archetype That focuses on getting Sun Titan, and some Phantasmal Images into the graveyard, playing Unburial Rites to bring back Sun Titan, using his trigger to bring back a Phantasmal Image as a copy of Sun Titan, which then allows you continue to chain into bringing all your Phantasmal Images back as Sun Titans and just generate a massive board of 6/6's.

  2. There are a couple different routes that I can see you taking this deck. As the above user stated, making an enchantments matter styled deck would be great. There are lots of fun prison strategies to you run. You could even try you hand at a sort of "boggles" deck. Bogles is a deck that runs hexproof creatures that you then just stack auras onto and swing. Given the creatures are hexproof, it really limits the ways your opponent can interact with the creature, and it can lead to some pretty fast wins as your creature can get super big very fast. Kor Spiritdancer is often also used in these lists as another beater that benefits from enchantments. Mesa Enchantress is another card that can help fuel your draws and keep your hand full. The second theme you seem to be working with is life gain. Soul sisters and martyr proc lists would be great starting points. Soul sisters is a deck that gain incremental life though things like Soul's Attendant and then wins off the back of Serra Ascendant, and Ajani's Pridemate. Martyr proc is similar, but aims to be much more explosive in its life gain through the interactions between Martyr of Sands, and Squadron Hawk.

I think Unburial Rites is your best choice. More if you are playing white too.

Thus far my strategy is to get a critical threshold of dragons in the deck (27 right now) so that I can keep drawing and casting dragons instead of needing to reanimate them. I have considered Unburial Ritesbefore, but just don't know what to cut for it right now (maybe Serum Visions?). My current recursion suite either gives me repeated uses (Palace Siege and Volrath's Stronghold) or gives blowouts (Patriarch's Bidding with Dragonlord Kolaghan or Scourge of Valkas in the GY). Bladewing the Risen was included mainly for nostalgia, but is actually quite useful in Pod chains. Pod away a 6-drop to get Bladewing the Risen, which reanimates a dragon. Next turn you can pod away Bladewing to get Utvara Hellkite!

Demonic Tutor and Seasons Past combo to give me a recursion engine late game (Tutor for Seasons Past, which recurs the tutor). Bring to Lightreally ties up the whole package!

Hello, from your post i just realized that i am not the only person who is tinkering with a deck built around Skaab Ruinator
So here is what ideas i came up with till now:

1# Build an all in deck with the best cheap mill spells, Hedron Crab, Minister of Inquiries, Shriekhorn (a few - as its sadly an artifact), Dream Twist, Contingency Plan - ad 3 playsets of "real" creatures Narcomoeba, Skaab Ruinator, Eternal Scourge - and a flex slot, that at the moment i fill with Stitchwing Skaab, but it could be Magus of the Bazaar.
The problem is that this version has obvious problems with stuff like Path to Exile, (and grave hate) despite being really fast.

2# Build a deck that abuses Gifts Ungiven with Skaab Ruinator as win condition (since this creature doesn't need slots devoted to Unburial Rites.
In such a shell Mulldrifter, Shriekmaw, Plaxmanta + Pit Keeper as a worse Snapcaster Mage would do well.
For turn one stuff like Siren Stormtamer/Martyr of Frost or stuff like Vampire Cutthroat would be ideal.

P.s.:Laboratory Maniac is a trap - for this deck.
There are alternatives that are a lot better - like Psychic Spiral + Mystic Retrieval which can work out of the graveyard, and mill the opponent out of nowhere.

Neat list. Birthing Pod is an interesting addition that I'd never considered for Ur-Dragon.

Given that you have Survival, Pod, Greater Good and Bazaar, have you considered running Unburial Rites? It does a decent impression of a D Tutor that puts the card directly in to play here. But you have enough ways to dig and tutor that maybe it's not good enough.

So, Buried Alive is one of the best tutors for reanimation. Unburial Rites and Dance of the Dead are other great reanmiation spells.Also, I can always sing the praises of Worldgorger Dragon.

This is a interesting interpretation of the deck! When you have Disentomb in your sorceries, do you mean Unburial Rites?

+1 from me!

I like the deck. I think I might make an Esper variant of it to be able to use Unburial Rites to be able to resurrect the Labratory Maniac.
