PlattBonnay on Help me update my Reanimator ...

4 days ago

Haven't gotten to play legacy since the top banning, had some questions before I update my RBx Reanimator list (current decklist at the bottom)

1. Is there a consensus on the best splash? Currently I'm on white primarily for Wear/Tear as I think it's the safest splash for an unknown metagame, but I know that people have had success with the green and blue splashes as well.

2. Is Sire of Insanity still good enough? I know it used to be a staple, but I've seen a lot of recent lists that don't have it anywhere in the 75.

3. Chancellor is always a mainboard card right? I believe it is, but I have seen a couple lists that either don't play it at all or just have it in the board. Both seem wrong, but I'd be willing to try it if it if you guys have some positive feedback about it.

4. Any glaring omissions in my list? Like I said, I haven't played it in a while, but I don't think my list is that far off, it's mostly just the sideboard that I'm actually concerned about.

DarkLaw on Solutions For Nonbasic Hate

My last suggestion I have at this point which could be bad depending on how many players there are per game is that you look into things like Cabal Therapy, Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, and maybe Unmask or Hymn to Tourach. The theory being, they aren't just dead in some matchups and are fairly versatile. You can check to see if the coast is clear, remove hate pieces, etc. The problem is that you can only target one player, so you might still need a little luck. They're all pretty cheap too.

Could you replace Thoughtseize with Unmask? as I have the later and don't really want to buy the other

psychosmurf96 on Grixis Control, Hour of Bolas

2 weeks ago

pax. i guess I worded it weirdly, The addition of more doesn't make aggro better, is what makes the aggro match up a breeze/about 60/40 depending on what aggro deck we are facing. (humans being more 55/45) The does however make control a 50/50 game one where as a base has about a 30/70 control match up game one sue to the immense amount of dead draws we have.

By Discard i meant hand disruption yea. Part of why Grixis Control is so good in other formats on a base vs the standard base/core of has to be the varied amounts of hand disruption for only 1 mana. in modern you have Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, and Duress. In legacy you get the previously mentioned cards but also Unmask and Cabal Therapy. I believe that is why most list look similar to UR Control. It also could be the idea of attacking different match ups. I focus more heavily on having a better match up vs control so I have a higher spell count and a lower spell count but to prepare for all in aggro those 2 amounts of cards could easily flip.

Well I really think you should add 4 Simian Spirit Guide and 4 Elvish Spirit Guide. Yes, you would need two of them in hand to cast your spell t1. BUT, you only need one of them to cast it turn two. They are a better fit than the Dwarven Ruins type lands in my opinion. With those, you have to have one in your hand t1. If your spell is countered or your creature is killed, you're also down a land. The guides are the best colored mana acceleration with CMC greater than two. You could do them and keep 1-3 Geothermal Crevice.

Your mana could be something like this:4 Simian Spirit Guide, 4 Elvish Spirit Guide, 4 Pillar of the Paruns (I'd never heard of this card. It's a great find that's prefect for your deck), 4 Mana Confluence, 4 Gemstone Mine, 4 City of Brass, and 2 Geothermal Crevice

I didn't realize initially how few black cards you have. Unmask wouldn't work. If you don't have that or Force of Will you'd have no protection what so ever, which would be very bad. You want to have at least 14 cards of that color to cast those cards, including the cards themselves.

If you added Shardless Agent and Ardent Plea, you would have 17 blue cards. I would replace the four Omniscience with four Force of Will. Force is expensive, but if you plan on continuing to play legacy, you'll want them anyway. I honestly think you should have 4 Unmask as well. You currently have ... one ... black card. Now you certainly could add 4 Griselbrand. That guy is as good as any to cheat into play. Maybe more Progenitus could work. I don't think he's a great card for you though. You could look into more black fatties.

If you don't go with either of those protection spells. Trinisphere may work.

Sorry for the ridiculously long post.

Unmask may be a good fit for you. Countermagic will be your biggest problem. You should cosider putting Force of Will in the mainboard as well.

If you can adjust your manabase a bit, Ardent Plea is better than Demonic Dread and Bloodbraid Elf. As it doesn't need a target and only costs 3.

Good luck!

I do have a question. Do you not need more methods for fighting post board GY hate? Seems like at least another 2 Unmask is appropriate.

abby315 on W: to finish Legacy Reanimator, ...

1 month ago

I'm SOOOO close to finishing B/R Reanimator, my first legacy deck! I fell in love with the reanimator strategy by playing a cube and now I have a NEED for T1 Griselbrand :P

The cards I still need:
4x Thoughtseize (LORWYN ART HEAVILY PREFERRED but I may have to shelve my pride, so feel free to make an offer for Theros ones.)
1x Entomb (any art ok, Invocation would be INCREDIBLE)
3x Chancellor of the Annex
2x Griselbrand (promo is fine)
1x Collective Brutality
3x Animate Dead (Graveborn foil preferred, EMA art least preferred)
3x Faithless Looting

I also need these lands, which I'm most willing to trade the Goyfs/Lilianas towards:

1x Badlands
1x Bayou
2x Verdant Catacombs
1x Marsh Flats

I don't really need the enemy colored fetches so I'm looking to trade for the above stuff first, but they're nice anyway. I can contribute cash towards a dual land and am willing to trade heavily in your favor.

BIG TICKET CARDS I HAVE:
2x Tarmogoyf (MM3)
1x Liliana of the Veil (MM3)
1x FOIL Damnation (MM3)
1x Glimpse the Unthinkable (RAV)
1x Japanese Liliana, the Last Hope
1x Torrential Gearhulk Masterpiece
1x Pithing Needle Masterpiece
1x Combustible Gearhulk Masterpiece

SDCC JACE, NISSA, and GIDEON (aka zombie walkers), and a lot of FROM THE VAULT cards. Binder is full of other value things besides, just sort by $. Let's make a deal! :)

BINDER!
