@bushido_man96: (Man, I seriously need help from others also...)

OK. NOW the 1 last cut. From there, this will finally reach completion...

Scenario No.1: To cut Heroes' Podium , or To cut something else entirely.

Temporary Resolution: If nobody can think of an alt. idea for a cut, the Podium get's Shenanigans 'd, & at least this deck will be ready for construction.

Suggestions for The Final Cut:

  1. Jhoira's Familiar : cost for all my Legends & Artifice to cost less. Is this truly worth it?

  2. Trostani Discordant : Not sold on this; the only reason she's currently in is that she (They?) is a Homeward Bound on legs. Other than that, not much else, w/ even a 1/4 frame...

  3. WILD CARD: I'll leave it to you petty individuals to decide my fate for me...

Well, what it will be? Not sure if I have to bring back Yomiji, Who Bars the Way who allows Death Triggers, but for a deck that Reanimates like MADNESS, do you think it's worth adding again? If so, Mindslaver Stays; & two cuts are to be made instead. Prepare for WAR...

I'm not exactly sure how this would work out, but both Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle and Yomiji, Who Bars the Way might be decent aristocrats commanders.

Rome921,

Have you considered Arvad the Cursed ? I might even play him as your commander, since he gives an anthem effect (+2/+2) and drop Athreos in the 99. Honestly Atreos shines when he protects low CMC creatures. I don't think you will find a lot of people not paying the 3 life when 1 of your, often very powerfull, creatures dies. Next to that you play black and have a range of (under $9) tutors to fetch him.

You could throw in a little token/lifegain theme as support (very Orzhov) and play your deck as the guild extorting people and if they don't pay up exile their creatures. (Then Atreos might be super on theme again).

Legendaries I would run in a token/lifegain theme are: Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim Teysa, Orzhov Scion Karlov of the Ghost Council Kambal, Consul of Allocation Obzedat, Ghost Council Teysa Karlov Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts Regna, the Redeemer / Krav, the Unredeemed Ghost Council of Orzhova Vona, Butcher of Magan Aryel, Knight of Windgrace Elenda, the Dusk Rose Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder Yomiji, Who Bars the Way Whisper, Blood Liturgist Darien, King of Kjeldor Heliod, God of the Sun Brimaz, King of Oreskos Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle Oketra the True Elspeth, Sun's Champion Sorin, Lord of Innistrad Kaya, Orzhov Usurper Eight-and-a-Half-Tails

Support these guys with the following cards: Soul's Attendant Soul Warden Dictate of Erebos Grave Pact Smothering Tithe Ethereal Absolution Dawn of Hope Skullclamp Suture Priest Blood Artist Zulaport Cutthroat Crested Sunmare Regal Bloodlord Pious Evangel  Flip Authority of the Consuls Blind Obedience Anointed Procession Hidden Stockpile Vindictive Vampire Twilight Drover Mentor of the Meek Priest of Forgotten Gods Pitiless Plunderer High Market Shizo, Death's Storehouse Divine Visitation Intangible Virtue Attrition

A few sac outlets like Ashnod's Altar

And ofc, you have your generic Orzhov stuff like Path to Exile , Anguished Unmaking , Utter End , Wrath of God , Merciless Eviction

What maybe would also work are all the Afterlife dudes like: Ministrant of Obligation , Tithe Taker

Of course all of this above is just a suggestion. I think in this way you can easily you can keep the Legendary theme alive in your deck, but point in a bit more towards the Orzhov Syndicate. (wich in my opinion is an awesome guild!!) I think I kept a bit on a eye on your budget of $9 a card. If I missed a few my apologies.

Fistly I'd switch Phenax for a path or swords (probably swords first) Cut Jhoira's Familar for another mana rock. YOU NEED THESE!!

Removal and mana fixing is gonna be the MOST critical thing here, making sure you're on color to cast most of your spells without your commander is gonna be very beneficial. you cant just rely on your commander to be the ultimate haymaker. Either protect it or find ways to play around it.

Protection: Lightning Greaves Swiftfoot Boots

Assuming that you add these two, I'd actually keep most of the creatures on that list.

my cuts: Gahiji, Honored One: Not that impactful, and the +2/0 is kinda meh compared some thing like Heroes Podium... Would swap this creature for Heroes' Podium

Omniscience even with Jodah out this is just 5cmc counterspell bait. yes its valuable once you get it but if you draw this on your opening hand... its god awful till turn 5 if you're lucky. other than that is just 10 mana "win the game even more". awful when behind. Would switch this for something like Maelstrom Wanderer

Opal Palace another "Win more" card, makes your commander bigger, which is pretty irrelivant. Would use something like Kor Haven or Shizo, Death's Storehouse or even Yavimaya Hollow

at the time of post I'm sick so most of my includes right now are only the tip of the iceburg.

Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip Digs through your deck, then ramps you later. SUPER strong and very hard to get rid of. Amazing if you cant jodah in creatures.

Legacy Weapon Gets rid of problematic permanents, even at 12 mana (Cast and use) i'd recommend this... also the ability is INSTANT SPEED!!! :D

Sunbird's Invocation hello 3rd way to basically cascade through your deck. VALUE ENGINE.

Yomiji, Who Bars the Way Grave recursion if you protect this guy. Better than Athreos in the grave recusion part, but worst if you're forcing players to either pay 3 or return to hand. its nice to have both.

Urza's Ruinous Blast Better than WoG, Damnation. bad against Captain Sisay decks.

Zacama, Primal Calamity Just like legacy weapon, deals with problematic permanents.

Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage We talked about this guy being really good. surprised hes not here.

Decree of Pain board wipe + card draw??? YES PLEASE.

Time of Need Would run in Captain Sisay, so if its worth it there, its worth it here.

Kamahl's Druidic Vow another Genesis Wave. Best when you have TOO much mana. not bad if you're flooding either. Great card.

Austere Command Just does everything. but makes food or coffee... Im sad.

Merciless Eviction Amazing board wipe when behind, amazing ANTI PLANESWALKERS card.

The Immortal Sun Value for 6 mana... This thing is STUPID.

Paradox Engine ONLY WITH A LOT OF MANA ROCKS, DO NOT INCLUDE UNLESS YOU HAVE A LOT OF MANA ROCKS

The_Notebook I appreciate the suggestions. Torgaar is in there because Ill be able to reanimate him several times to strip the table of their life totals, as well as being a sac outlet. Heroes' Podium is definitely going in, and Yomiji, Who Bars the Way is already in the deck. Thanks for the feedback!

The_Notebook on The Legendary Undead

Three things: One, Torgaar is pretty bad in edh unless your facing heavy life gain or you need a very niche way to set your life to 20. I highly suggest looking elsewhere for a legend in the slot.

Two, Heroes' Podium???

Three, I honestly think this is a hilariously fun casual deck, but I think your missing the most amazing of legendary matters cards Yomiji, Who Bars the Way.
