This is my reanimator deck. It works relatively simply, I play a card like Entomb or Careful Study this put's a creature into my graveyard. I then play Reanimate (The reason it is called Reanimator) or Exhume to get the creature out onto the battlefield. Then I beat face. Still looking for advice, comments, and or +1's but this is a budget deck that can hold it's own in a tournament. NOTE: It is only budget when compared to other reanimator decks!

Casual deck, viable for Legacy tournaments, or somewhere in-between?

Ah. Well then, you're missing a number of cards: Careful Study , Brainstorm , Polluted Delta , Underground Sea , Force of Will , etc. Here's the last Legacy tournament list I saw for a Reanimator deck which made top 4:

1 Angel of Despair

4 Animate Dead

1 Blazing Archon

4 Brainstorm

4 Careful Study

4 Daze

4 Entomb

1 Exhume

2 Flooded Strand

4 Force of Will

3 Griselbrand

2 Island

1 Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur

3 Marsh Flats

1 Misty Rainforest

2 Polluted Delta

3 Ponder

4 Reanimate

1 Sphinx of the Steel Wind

3 Swamp

3 Thoughtseize

4 Underground Sea

1 Verdant Catacombs

Not saying you have to copy it, but take a look at the deck structure. If you want to remain mono-black you'll be missing out on a lot of draw power and counterspells, even if Dark Ritual can make the deck faster by a turn. If someone hits your turn-1 Entomb with a Force of Will you're nearly dead in the water.

I do see what you mean however there is only so much blue I can put in it that will work. I'll work on getting more blue control for it.

Hi, I was wondering if you could tell me how to build a good Angel Deck ? I want it to be all colors, mainly creatures and afew enchantments. Any advice would be appreciated.

Check out a deck on here called "Reanimation Vacation", not mine, and see the comments I've posted on there, it should get you to where you need to be. If you have any comments or conscerns like I said before check my deck out and let me know. I'd me more than happy to lend my two cents.

The best angel deck I ever saw was a Kaalia of the Vast with some reanimate in it.

October 27, 2012 9:35 a.m.

I like reanimators. Check out mine here I'm Back From the Dead!

This is now what it looks like it is still on the cheap. But it has the blue for consistency and control.

Akroma, Angel of Wrath is more of a sideboard card against specific decks. I think you could really have fun with 4x Iona and 4x deck:sakashima-the-imposter. Just lock someone out of their entire deck.

miracleHat says... #13

dude, sick deck. +1 from me. i really think that you should add more counterspells in case some blue deck starts screwing you around.

legomyfoot says... #14

I would switch the Counterspell s with the Duress s. you probably wont have the mana to pay for 2 blue most of the time.

November 28, 2012 9:27 p.m.

miracleHat says... #15

you have to be running Force of Will ,

December 15, 2012 7:10 p.m.

Korlan says... #16

I don't have Force of Will yet. Once I get some I will put them in here.

Glenjaman says... #17

It looks good, except for the fact that you have no way of playing red, white, or green cards without red, white and green mana.

Please read the cards in the deck before you make comments like that.

lol why hardcast anything other then reanimate

miracleHat says... #20

First of all you have way too many creatures.Just play important stuff like Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur , Iona, Shield of Emeria , Griselbrand , Angel of Despair and Blazing Archon . If you don't have the expensive stuff like Force of Will , Underground Sea or any fetchlands like Polluted Delta , I try to name cheap cards. For example you need to play 4x Duress in your main. It's really damn good to destroy combos. Try to get 4x Daze and maybe Ponder . Chain of Vapor should be in your sideboard. Maybe add Nullstone Gargoyle , Stormtide Leviathan or Tidespout Tyrant just to piss people off :D

You can checkout mine. Still working on it Reanimate Controll

Thanks DataVader for the help, was most useful. Don't know why I had all 4 Archons mainboard but I had them there. Now it's down to only 8 creatures that either have great synergy or are just annoyances to my opponents.

Want to take out Platinum Emperion to put in card:Painter's Servant. Anybody have any ideas as to whether or not I should do it?

January 9, 2013 6:39 p.m.

larsenp says... #24

Why painter, for an Iona combo?

January 10, 2013 3:57 p.m.

Korlan says... #25

yes. it would make it much easier against affinity matchup.

January 11, 2013 11:39 p.m.

larsenp says... #26

That's why you use the Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite she pretty much shuts that and dredge down.
