My very first EDH deck. I found this Sedris, the Traitor King feller, and decided to also make it into my first reanimator.

Blinking works to bypass the exile at end of turn drawback for Unearth so I'm working on getting a Deadeye Navigator. Sundial of the Infinite does this as well, but it's always nice to have redundancy especially since this deck can get creatures back more easily than artifacts.

Note that while Tappedout says Deadeye Navigator is not legal in any format, Gatherer says it is legal.

I think I have gone way overboard on reanimation targets, but from my solitaire-playtests I feel that Utvara Hellkite for a swarm of Dragons, Inkwell Leviathan in conjunction with Stormtide Leviathan for controlled attacking, and Grave Titan seem to be the big hitters in the deck. Sheoldred, Whispering One and Avatar of Woe were put in as removal/contingencies. Some of the targets, such as Chaos Imps , are heavy-hitters, but I don't see them totally changing the direction of the game. I think Sheoldred, Whispering One would be even more reliable with It That Betrays, but I also sort of like the extortion cost attached to Prince of Thralls . I don't have It That Betrays yet. He's on my Acquireboard.

What would be recommended to get the cards needed to start unearthing as quickly as possible, and which targets seem to be the least suited to the deck?

Also note that I used the Sideboard and Maybeboard as personal references. The Sideboard is cards that I've taken out from solitaire-playtests, and the Maybeboard is cards that I've put in.


Updates Add

Found an Inferno Titan at LGS, so I swapped out Netherborn Phalanx. They both fall into the category of damage-bombs, with Phalanx potentially able to do more damage but more restricted against people who don't play a lot of creatures.

I also decided to add Amulet of Vigor considering all the non-basic lands in here.
