Hey COOZCOOZCOOZ, saw the new updates and it's looking good. I'm definetly gonna have to pick up a Shadowspear for my list. And was wondering if you've tried Daxos, Blessed by the Sun yet? I just added him to my list but haven't seen him in action yet.

I would strongly recommend cutting Erebos, God of the Dead, he was an early cut for me. All of the playgroups I've been in have always been able to steal or clone efficiently and it's rough to get shutdown by your own card. Also, Divinity of Pride would always seem to force a board wipe when I ran it and I couldn't gain anything from running it. And Obzedat's Aid and/or Unburial Rites could easily be switched out for things like Whip of Erebos or Mimic Vat if your looking to repeatedly reanimate.

Some cards I have found to really work with any playgroup are Leonin Elder, Golem's Heart and Paradise Plume. And it took me awhile, but I finally got my hands on an O-Naginata, as I've tried to focus my equipment package towards trample and low equip costs. Also, where's Panharmonicon???? Card was made for things like soul sister's package.

Anyways, my recommendations are based on my games and playgroups. Hope this helps.

I think you need to squeeze in these four dudes: Merciless Executioner, Fleshbag Marauder, Plaguecrafter and even Slum Reaper, as they're a very efficient way to grow Ob. Shriekmaw is a useful inclusion as well, if you evoke it it will grow Ob too.

There is also an old enchantment, Tombstone Stairwell. This will create tons of tokens that are destroyed at the end of every turn, growing Ob huge in no time.

While running the Citadel you're hitting yourself a lot, so I recommend you include some way to mitigate that. Of course the first cards that come to mind are Sensei's Divining Top and Aetherflux Reservoir, but Whip of Erebos could be helpful as well.

I know this may be too far away from the deck you're trying to build, but you said you're only playing Ob because it was in your collection. Having said that, I think you may want to consider switching to Jund and playing Kresh the Bloodbraided at the helm instead. Access to red and green could give you a broader range on what you're trying to do with the deck.

Well, if you look at Whip of Erebos - the answer is it is type - if it was an equipment, as these weapons were originally planned to be before someone realised that type line is super short, they would be "legendary enchantment artifact - equipment"

Eidolon of Blossoms and Arcbound Ravager do not have enchantment and artifact subtypes.

Also, you could definitely run something like Whip of Erebos over Corrupt if you really need the lifegain. Much stronger card and helps turn after turn.

Whip of Erebos is a card I also own in paper, it never hit me as an option surprisingly. I can see its value in this deck, and I think I will test it out soon!
