Description

so fun o /

the deck is to play with the cemetery, of course .. and Snapcaster Mage + and socerys instants, and Liliana of the Veil discarding or Forbidden Alchemy coming across, to reactivate the creature of the cemetery with Unburial Rites
Suggestions and comments are welcome and +1 if you like! thanks

I think these types of decks are even more fun than Birthing Pod. I'm curious how ofthen you draw opening hands with too many bombs and no way to discard them. Liliana is currently your only way to discard from your hand.

I'd prefer to run 4x Darkslick Shores and 2x Drowned Catacomb over the 2-4 split you have now. It's critical to get Liliana of the Veil out on turn 3 if at all possible, and you've a better chance of doing that with an openinng hand with Darkslick over Drowned.

I would run more Sun Titan s and maybe 4x Phantasmal Image . Sun Titan can bring back a chain of Sun Titan Image's from your graveyard, snapcasters, or even Liliana!

yeh @StoliV I also think. Then Forbidden Alchemy helps a lot too and is one of the best innistrad letters to me, very playable in various types of decks. Contains 4 Liliana exactly why, she has been in testing steady hand in handThe creatures do not have room for all, and the range of choice is huge it is difficult to choose, in entando make some changes.

I like it. I've been trying to build a version of this but can't afford Liliana or snapcasters. Trying out Horrifying Revelation with it see how that goes. Also wanted a zombie theme in there like Cemetery Reaper and Unbreathing Horde working alongside Sun Titan . Anyways, great deck, +1 from meee!!!

thanks @ Jayman66 really liliana and snapcaster mage are dear friends!!also try some cheaper alternatives if I notice you think!

I think zombie decks really cool, but there are too many zombies standard range of decks with it's huge and more difficult to find the best, then.!

I placed third yesterday, flooding the tests a lot and I rely on Snapcaster Mage + Forbidden Alchemy . I have eight chances to put three cards in graveyard and he has almost always 3 Unburial Rites are 6 times possible to cast this spell by Snapcaster flashback or Mage. But as I said is only testing you can be sure that if you have only 3 on the mainboard, I'll have more on a Sideboard: D

But rest assured with certainty when the deck is finished fourth Unburial rites

Pardon the clumsy English, do not master this grammar, I'm from another country: S

I'm going to have to disagree with the 4 Darkslick Shores instead of 4 Drowned Catacomb . Your late game appears to be more important than your turns 1-3 from the look of it.

Also do you have any solution to Surgical Extraction or Memoricide shooting your Unburial Rites ?

heuiaheiuheiauh each one says a thing, but testing did not see much difference, then place 3 of each ok?

Surgical Extraction is already on side, depending from the kind of deck playing cards come from the side, and the cards in the not so good against mainbord tao type of deck out, it is normal .. has room for her yes!thanks for comment

These type of decks (Solar Flare variants) have one big weakness. They can not function without their reanimator (currently being Unburial Rites ). And there are so many answers right now in standar (the most ridiculous being Nihil Spellbomb ), that adding at least another back-up plan is a must. IMO add Quicksilver Amulet , either main or sideboard. Also a bit of counterspelling, be it manaleak or Negate , to protect your game could work wonders (especially with Snapcaster Mage).

Drop the current sphinx for Consecrated Sphinx or Grave Titan

I REALLY hate to be negative, but will Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur not hurt the deck more than help? I mean you are going through your library at a fairly fast rate, by turn 6--when solar flare usually kicks in to play--you should be down to 25-30 cards max in your library; leaving you with 3-4 turns to kill your opponent before milling yourself out. I don't know, I just feel this might have a harder time with control decks altogether. A well built control deck, regardless of hand size, should be able to stall for 3 turns. As well, that leaves them the option to look at their hand, lay down what they need to stall, and just play the next three turns by the draw. I wish I could tell you otherwise, but I would drop the two for the much needed Sun Titan and Consecrated Sphinx . Really, I mean no ill intent by this, I hate giving criticism constructive or not. I just thought I would throw it out there and I would be more than glad to listen to a defense of Jin-Gitaxias. I just think he will do more harm than good. I also think you need another Phantasmal Image or two, I have seen Solar Flare in action, this card wins games. I might drop the Sphinx of Uthuun . All in all, I am telling you to stop being different and run solar flare like everyone else lol. Again, apologies for being the bad guy.

Why not include Zombie InfestationMTG Card: Zombie Infestation ? It gives you discard whenever you want, and chump creatures in the meantime, once you have Jin-Gitaxias it'll give you plenty of cards to discard for even more tokens.
