Well, why didn't you say so? And if you don't usually win by using Balthor, why play him as your commander in the first place?
You already have Chainer, Dementia Master in your mainboard, and he's a fantastic commander for a reanimator deck. All you need to fully utilize him are some sac engines so killing him doesn't exile all your creatures, Phyrexian Altar , Ashnod's Altar , Viscera Seer , Attrition , Mind Slash . You already have Altar of Dementia , and Undercity Informer might even be worth considering (on yourself of course).
Honestly though? I don't understand why I'm trying to help at this point. You said input needed, and now you don't seem to want my input just because I criticized you. So... whatever I guess. Good luck with the deck.
plusmental thanks for your feedback! yeah i've been thinking I want to acquire some gravecrawlers to add to this deck eventually. he also goes well with Altar of Dementia + Mikaeus, the Unhallowed late game i can sac him, he comes back with undying without me even needing to cast from the graveyard, then i can sac him again, and cast him from graveyard and repeat the whole process.
my original build actually had both Lich Lord of Unx and Endless Ranks of the Dead in it, but i decided to pull those and focus more on buffing the zombies that come out so i added more death barons and sets of my main combo pieces. i still really like both of those cards though!
never knew about Undercity Informer thats a great card! almost the same effect as Altar of Dementia . depending on circumstances could mill more, could mill less. this deck is kind of for more casual play so it's themed. if i ever decide to make a modern version that i could actually play at events i'll def. keep your suggestions in mind.
i'll take a look at your decks when i get a chance! thanks again!
If any of those cards are considerable - awesome :) but feel free to look at mine
-1 Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker -3 Undercity Informer -2 Jace, Memory Adept (good but 5 mana)-1 Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver -2 Drown in Sorrow (SB)-4 Bile Blight (SB)-2 Dissolve -1 Countersquall -1 Dimir Charm -1 Ultimate Price 3x Go for the Throat (SB)-2 Tome Scour
+2 Polluted Delta (minimun 21 lands)2x Thought Scour 2x Visions of Beyond 4x Glimpse the Unthinkable 3x Inquisition of Kozilek +3x Mind Funeral 2x Surgical Extraction or Extirpate or even Haunting Echoes 2x Spell Snare
Or something like it!
I have a few bits of advice. Firstly I would recommend cutting some of your higher cost creatures for a few more early to mid game creatures. Cards like Karmic Guide and Phyrexian Delver are great early- mid game creatures that are still fantastic late, and fit right in with your theme. Then cards like Sakura-Tribe Elder , Yavimaya Granger , and Satyr Wayfinder can help you hit your early lands while fueling your graveyard. Speaking of which, Undead Gladiator and Undercity Informer are great at it. I'm a huge personal fan of Saffi Eriksdotter , and I can't imagine you being any less than elated when drawin a Eternal Witness or a Birthing Pod . Especially when the former is bringing back the latter. Finally I would run more basics lands that come into play untapped are the bee's knees but much more importantly it will allow you to run Hermit Druid (which by the way is the best card ever) without the ire. Just let your palls know that you run like 18 basics and it's cool and it flips 3-5 cards and ensures you hit your land drops and sometimes you draw him on turn 12 after searching out a bunch of lands and he dumps like 37 cards in your yard. Anyway sorry I was so long winded. Hope you have lots of fun with karador he's one of my favorites let me know if you'd like any more advice I have been playing karador for a few years now and have lots I'd love to share.P.S. You should take everything Somnambulist says as scripture. This person is clearly just brilliant although if not Reya Dawnbringer then what to pod my ashen rider into I don't personally like the elephant as I've already probably ravaged my opponents permanents reya brings back abhorrent overlord and he pods up Craterhoof Behemoth and that's game. Anyway I'd love to hear your thoughts on the matter
