-Griselbrand - discard then reanimate and draw everything.-card:Loleth-Troll- discard everything, get big. -Grisly Salvage - help get Grisel in GY. -Unburial Rites - ... -Slitherhead - after discarding use Scavenge.

-Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord - sac the troll after swinging. win? And people dont realize yet that just between Jarad and Messenger there's 13 loss of life easy on turn 5... and with a Blood Artist, 15... im sure you can sneak 5 through by then... or just hope on turn 5 you swing with both if they get through its game over..

Honestly Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord is only in there untill RTR releases some more fatties, or cards that work great for this deck. I See what your saying with the messenger, that combo is going to seen alot in upcoming standard. I only wish that Vengevine was still in standard for card:Loleth-Troll.

I'd consider adding something like Mulch or Farseek tor some additional manna/fill GY.

But there is a little problem.....i make a exact copy of the deck to test play with my brother GU delver deck and it is easily stop by Vapor Snag , Mana Leak and Snapcaster Mage . The draw always struggle on wither you pay for shock lands or wait for basic land. I was thinking of adding Ring of Evos Isle to protect the creature but it might ruin the concept....

Thanks for the idea, hope my comment help in improving the deck

+1 for the deck really like it

This deck can't even be made until Vapor Snag meets rotation, and as for Mana Leak (rotating as well) there will always be another counterspell. They're still plenty of spoilers still left, so i can only hope that they give green or black something to do about Snapcaster Mage . Thanks for the +1 aries5888.

Thanks McChisel Mulch has been Added.

Why Arbor Elf over card:Avacyn's Pilgrim? Other than that, +1 from me. Also, Angel of Serenity would be another good reanimate target.

Arbor Elf because it can untap Temple Garden and Overgrown Tomb . Thanks for the +1!

Damn this is awesome! i would run Strangleroot Geist to stall, and block as the preasure before you reanimate builds.

September 13, 2012 3:22 p.m.

BiggRedd54 says... #11

Thanks nanoex1, that was a really good suggestion.! I Took out Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord and Corpsejack Menace because while the menace helped (very little) jarad did nothing. I was going to wait and see what other fatties they came out with, but i needed to address that this deck had no early game (whether it be pressure or defense) and Strangleroot Geist fits perfectly. Thanks again!

Im glad I could help! And i hope they reprint birds this time around in ravnica!

BiggRedd54 says... #13

Yeah me too! It's almost Guaranteed though so I wouldn't lose sleep over it..

I think the new Angel of Serenity is nice, reanimated early game would most definitely ruin any build up of their offense. I have a BGW reanimator deck I run, but most of my stuff is rotating out. I like your set up here and It gives me Ideas of how to update mine. Thanks +1

angel of serenity is indeed awsome getting rid of some of you opponents threat it almost makes up for the loss of elesh norn. you need mor re-animator besides unburial rites and hard casting the big meanies there aren't many other win conditions. lotleth troll works very well for feuling your graveyard, but i would suggest more ways to get crap onto the field.

BiggRedd54 says... #16

@maxdarke741 It's been an issue in playtesting...What would you suggest?

SwiftDeath says... #17

unless we get another spoiler for RtR then Defy Death is the only other card that is even somewhat playable.

BiggRedd54 says... #18

lol Defy Death ...i can only hope it doesn't come down to that...

September 17, 2012 5:18 p.m.

This deck seems like a lot of fun, but one flaw seems to stand out. I've play tested it about 2 dozen times and on average I cannot seem to get Avacyn, Angel of Hope or Griselbrand out much sooner than I would be able to just hard cast them. Getting him into the GY isn't much of a problem with this build, but only having Unburial Rites to rely on slows things down a bit. This is a deck I would really want to play in FNM if something else similar to Unburial Rites gets spoiled in R2R. Good job on this deck it certainly gets a +1 from me.

as for the comment on Vapor Snag i run it but have already decided id run Unsummon as a replacement(will see play now can bet on that).

creature i was considering for this kind of deck would be Kessig Cagebreakers (could be to high not sure yet atleast) get some creatures in the grave attack afterwards reanimate legends.

incorrect THRUN THE LAST TROLL is the best troll lotleth is decent he is great if u run him with white green black and throw in 4 loxodon smiters though...just food for thought..

September 21, 2012 1 p.m.

cdedman, Loxodon Smiter only works if it's an opponents spell or ability that causes you to discard him. Would be over powered otherwise.

dagbaker says... #23

Grisly Salvage is better than Mulch by 1 card and speed. I'd say change the ratio to 4:1

October 5, 2012 3:13 a.m.

+1!!! Bile Blight- Dismember- Cloudshift!?!

JoshFox says... #25

I know this is an old thread but I couldn't pass up the name. cdedman is right Thrun, the Last Troll is the Greatest Troll Ever!

That being said, great deck and good luck at the tables!

If you have time I would love some help with Abzan Beatdown. Same colors, different idea.
