@SplodyCopter wow congrats! what did you get?? and can i know what creatures you used in the tournament :)

what the hell dude. that card is so freakin op. why did i not know of this?!
January 3, 2012 1:03 p.m.
I was looking up card:Demon's Herald for an alara block card and I typed in Herald... It turned up. I was like what is this? And wham it hit me like a fat kid on a cupcake. It would go amazing in this deck. Especially if you dropped if turn 1 or 2. That and Void Maw . I explored time spiral a bit after I found Leshrac.

Herald. Vorinclex only keeps the land locked down. Herald gives you the land to use. Voice is nice because it does give you double. If you ran both, you would own the game from turn2. A smart enemy though would tap the Land at the beginning of your untap step so that it would come under your control tapped. I found that trick in a sandbox playtest.

@SplodyCopter nice one! those are expensive hahaha. wish me luck to try this deck to some legacy tournaments :)
January 9, 2012 10:11 p.m.
and guys do you have any idea on how to put this deck on one of the "Top Decks"?
January 9, 2012 10:16 p.m.
for it to get in "top decks" it has to have increased the rating by a lot in the last two weeks. this deck was on there for a while, but it's been a while since you posted it.
January 9, 2012 10:20 p.m.
You gotta keep this thing cycled and troll it on every page like Vman has with his decks. He has posted BW morbid experiment. Haha there's a plug for ya. I swear if that guy had a nickle every time he plug his deck, he'd have a lot of nickles.
And Herald of Leshrac clearly says you control it. only downside is that after its first upkeep you must take over two lands. Look into Cumulative upkeep on Gatherer. I'm not the expert at it. It would probably work better has a late game control card in case you haven't been able to get what you want out. It would also rock multi player. look into Void Maw though. Keeps ALL graveyards clear until you need them un-clear and gives +2/+2 with trample. Definitely worth a thought or a playtest.

First off, love the Skyrim reference. Second, if you want to use Eldrazi, use Pathrazer of Ulamog or It That Betrays. Their mana costs don't matter to you, they are DEVASTATING to your opponents, and they don't have the 'shuffle back in' issue that Legendary guys have. Third, this deck is hilarious. So rude. I like the idea of Zombie Infestation to help you discard your reanimation targets. A looter mechanic could help too, but I wouldn't know where to put it at first glance. This has a classic build to it- very much like original Reanimator. Make sure to yell "FUS RO DAH!" when you get your turn one combo. :P

Do you guys thinks its way better if I add 4x Lotus Petal?? like, it makes the deck much faster??
January 24, 2012 9:39 a.m.
Terastodon!! It's crazy evil in turn two-three! You kill his lands and can block his puny 3/3's with your mighty 9/9 - besides those 3/3's are nothing compared to the cat's you bring in turn after turn
January 24, 2012 2:19 p.m.
I love reanimator decks. +1 mate.
You should check mine I made for Standard.
January 24, 2012 3:26 p.m.
@TylerJohns i saw your deck it was awesome for standard format! :) btw, thanks for the +1!
January 24, 2012 7:09 p.m.
i love reanimator as well u should check out my reanimation edh its +1 great deck
January 30, 2012 6:57 p.m.
Encroach only hates nonbasic lands. as in, it searches for a land that is not basic. you may be thinking it searches for a card that's not a basic land.
February 3, 2012 12:04 a.m.
I know its green but its a trap card. if your getting countered. bite back like a boss. Summoning Trap. its a zero drop. I dont know if it would work in this deck tho. For some reason all my ideas are green. Primeval Titan for the fetch land. Inkwell Leviathan is probably already on your list.
Roil Elemental is like your mob boss here.
February 3, 2012 4:21 a.m.
Summoning Trap wouldn't work very well in this deck since he doesn't hard cast any creatures, so he doesnt actually "cast" a creature spell.
February 3, 2012 8:05 a.m.
OMG SplodyCopter so right! Darn, So Wrong was I! Thx!
February 3, 2012 10:07 a.m.
February 3, 2012 3:25 p.m.
This deck is like a much slower version (unless you have a really lucky draw,) of my deck. Check out my black legacy deck in a few playtests
February 7, 2012 8:04 a.m.
thanks for the turn one win combo idea i refined a little and am using it in my deck check it out deck:cradle-2-the-grave
February 15, 2012 5:48 p.m.
@solron22, hey how has your deck been doing in playtesting, especially with the low land count? I'd like to build this deck, it looks so fun :P
February 17, 2012 4:53 a.m.
@shedidthistome well its pretty fast in my IMO and some other people haha but many prefer the B/U Reanimator Build but the cards for the Blue you need especially the dual lands and the counter they are so expensive so thats why i like to remain as mono-black :) try playtesting for yourself and beat some other legacy decks in the site :D
goodluck on building yours! :D i haven't tried this on any tournys still thinking if its already in good shape to compete.
February 17, 2012 11:01 a.m.
@solron22, do you have any links to the B/U reanimator builds, just so I can see the disparity? Thanks!
February 17, 2012 6:03 p.m.
@shedidthistome sorry none, just type in google "B/U Reanimator deck legacy" and it will give you some links :)
February 17, 2012 6:29 p.m.
Magmatic Force is a lovely card to reanimate. That 3 damage an upkeep hurts.
February 17, 2012 10:50 p.m.
dont put phage with sheoldred cuh if platium leaves and sheoldred forces you to bring back phage thats game happened to me many times so i nix phage and angel in my edh and also both of your stradgies are the same in your description i would recommend you find a different one because those are close to impossibe a turn two win however might be more plausible and is realistic especially because the rule with reanimtors if you aint won by turn 4-5 you arent gunna
February 17, 2012 11:58 p.m.
@smokeylocc, i consistently play my own tweaked version of this deck for 10-12 turns vs my friend's merfolk deck, and i still win. it's pretty much a rule in legacy tournaments that you need to be fast, but this is perfectly viable.
February 19, 2012 3:54 p.m.
February 22, 2012 3:32 p.m.
@solron22, also... correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think you can have Akroma, Angel of Fury and Akroma, Angel of Wrath both out at the same time, due to the legendary rule. So you wouldn't have five color protections out at once.
February 22, 2012 4:52 p.m.
the legend rule applies to the entire name of the card, so if both cards were named Akroma, but they were different cards (which wouldn't happen), then the legend rule would apply. but since it's Akroma, blah blah blah and Akroma, different blah, they're two different legends.
February 24, 2012 5:06 p.m.
i really like this deck... definitaly a +1 from me!!!
can all of you offer some ideas to my control deck called deck:you-cant-even-play-a-spell??? thx a ton if you do and for any of you guys, if you leave your deck linked on my wall, id be glad to offer my support and ideas
March 15, 2012 11:05 a.m.
use Anger instead of urabrask and you only need 2 rituals and buried alive and 1 of any 1 or two cast reanimation spells
March 27, 2012 12:26 p.m.
hats off to you sir, but how do you answer forces on first turn or dazes on the draw with no counters? i love the deck type and this deck seems solid and i plan to steal some ideas from it :D im just super limited in funds right now so i cant get some of the staple cards like pithing needle and a few of the creatures. so +1 from me and maybe look into some blue for counters
April 1, 2012 9:08 p.m.
@smokeylocc lol i was going to say that.
April 2, 2012 9:33 a.m.
your right dariandds blue add would be good but hella expensive when a playset of force is about 500 dolars but solron22 do you realy only run 12 land and that works i mean ive heard of realy good reanimators running 17 but 12 i mean even with lotus petal that seems a bit low and heres the big question do you actually play this deck because the land looks a little low and i dont know where you play but where i live every1 in legacy runs a ton of grave hate in sideboard and i see know way of dealing with grave hate at all might i suggest sideboarding phryxian obiletor and also y phage in your maybe board that should be in the absoultly never board granted shes a good card but if you reanimate her you lose and if your playing the deck right you will never have enuff mana unless you pull three dark rituals and her turn 1 legacy games are usually over turn 4 max
April 2, 2012 5:09 p.m.
a playset of force is like, 200 dollars. just sayin. i run 16 land, with 4 fetches.
April 2, 2012 11:05 p.m.
Solron, this deck gets a +1 for the name and for inspiring me to play Maelstrom Archangel and Emrakul, The Aeons Torn in my own Legacy Reanimator deck. All hail Dovakhiin!
August 29, 2013 8:26 p.m.
If you're looking for combos, i would put in some discard (to discard the creatures you get in your hand) such as Funeral Charm or Raven's Crime . Discard goes really well with this type of deck and it practically allows you to win the game if you draw a Griselbrand . another really nasty combo is Platinum Angel with Griselbrand , allowing you to draw infinite cards, and with discard thats game over. i used to run this type of deck and thought that worked best. +1
November 4, 2013 11:02 a.m.
Hey thanks for the suggestion Lordfishyy. ill think about it. :)
November 6, 2013 2:48 a.m.
+1 just for the deck name. I'm sure someone can see why...
November 6, 2013 10:24 p.m.
I like the deck's composition makes the color pie look like a black Pac-Man eating the other colors lol
November 20, 2013 12:52 p.m.
+1 I like it! Refreshing to see other mono black reanimator decks.

Well actually he deals more damage and also you can cascade twice when you cast him for free with Maelstrom Archangel .
Pro for cascade: Most likely you will get to reanimate or to cast a creature on the battlefield which will have haste because of himAgainst cascade: It can happen that you will have to exile Griselbrand or Emrakul, the Aeons Torn
I'd say it's worth to test it. And only afterwards you will be able to judge wheter he's better or not. =)
Hope this helped.

Oops, didn't see it in the deck. Your deck looks really good! about your sideboard, i would like to see Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur in here, destroys any deck if played turn 1.
December 12, 2013 6:44 p.m.
There's also Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur . :) check it out! thanks bro, give it +1! :D
December 12, 2013 7:51 p.m.
fun trick of the day, Necromancy using its instant speed ability can catch an emrakul in response to its reshuffle ability. i.e. Entomb Emrakul, the Aeons Torn putting him in grave. His reshuffle mechanic will trigger, in response casting Necromancy at instant speed targeting emrakul will put him into play.

This looks really nice! +1

Just in case you have the following cards in hand:
1x Dark Ritual
June 20, 2014 9:34 a.m.
If you don't want to side in all three Urabrask the Hidden , Magister Sphinx , and Sharuum the Hegemon ; and since Iona, Shield of Emeria is already a starter, you can just side in a Painter's Servant for a T1 win guarantee. You don't even have to guess the correct color to call! Solves multi-color problems as well. Additionally, you can use 2x Entomb s instead of just Buried Alive with the double Reanimate . Furthermore, if the 2x Entomb s are used, you can use an Exhume with a Reanimate . These options slightly increase the chance of drawing a T1 winning hand. On a side note, Avacyn, Angel of Hope pairs great with Empyrial Archangel or Palisade Giant ...
July 1, 2014 5:20 p.m.
Just a couple of the possibilities...
