Venser, Shaper Savant Discussion

Always love to see a Scab God list that isn't tribal zombies. My build isn't up here yet, so I can't link you to it, but if you're going for a reanimator strategy then two cards that are invaluable are Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur as a powerful win condition that can fuel further reanimation plays, and Champion of Wits is a phenomenal early body that digs you deeper, fuels reanimation, and has great reach if Scab God himself keeps getting answered with his own Eternalize. Other than that, I can reccomend Venser, Shaper Savant as a strong tempo play that, of course, is a damn fine target to reanimate to get that instant speed disruption twice. I'd also reccomend finding a way to slot in Baleful Strix , as I feel your curve is a bit top-heavy and the Strix is a solid value card (that you can get twice). A personal staple of mine in 90% of the blue decks I play and build is Thada Adel, Acquisitor as she has powerful utility at every point in the game to pur you ahead at virtually no cost in resources to yourself and can stop powerful artifact-based combos before they happen if you happen to find those troubling you over in your playgroup. At the very least, she's a repeatable ramp spell, though I do understand she makes people VERY salty so if you're worried about that feel free to disregard her. One last suggestion I have that isn't exactly budget friendly is Vendilion Clique for a combination reason between Venser and Strix. It's repeatable and powerful interruption in your deck and is lower to the ground, but I understand that they're a bit out of some people's price range. She also works great as a one-two punch with Venser himself to have your opponent "put that thing back where it came from or so help me".
Anyways, +1 from me for the Scab God representation! He's a hell of a fun deck.

Honestly. It’s a great card to protect the THINGS without worrying about your opponent playing counterspells and the like to disrupt protection spells. Also nice at bouncing Vendilion Clique or Venser, Shaper Savant .

Metallic Mimic names whatever etb/death trigger is most abuseable at that time. You just sac Mimic to rename the creature type as needed.
Dragon for Kokusho, the Evening Star Zombie for Gray Merchant of Asphodel or Vindictive Lich , etc. I've even named bird just to draw 4 cards per round with Baleful Strix . Wizard is also fun... it covers Lich above, Sower of Temptation / Venser, Shaper Savant etc. and it immediately protects Marchesa.
