Today (19.01.2018) I made this deck for standard and I went 2-1 (WB Vampires 2-0, WG Cats 2-0 and 4c Energy 1-2) and it little bit surprised me that this deck was this consistent. Before FNM I did some testing games and I did small changes that I personally like more.

I didn't use Heroic Intervention because for me it didn't do anything because best sweep is Hour of Devastation at least in here it is the most used and Morbid Curiosity was changed to Costly Plunder because it was rare I ever wanted to use morbid and when I did want to use it I wanted to sacrifice 2-3 cost creature so I don't see any point to pay 1 more when you can have at instant almost same effect.

Also I took 1 Plague Belcher out and I added 3 Dusk Legion Zealot because it enabled to cycle deck faster + it is 1/1 that can die easily for journey and the card draw is nice at later stage as well (2 Heroics and 1 Belcher for 3 Zealots)

For lands I played 2 Field of Ruin and 1 Foul Orchard with 4 Marshs and 10 swamp and 7 forest. Maybe some Ifnir Deadlands even though it will need those 5 other lands to work

In the end I think that this deck is really consistent REALLY hard to beat after you flip Journey because the value is too good and if the reanimator land gets destroyed it is fast to flip another and laugh at your opponent.

@EpicBox75 Thank you so much for giving the deck a try and taking the time to post your feedback here, it means a lot! I haven't had the chance to play it yet but I'll post an update as soon as I do.

Love this list! Have you considered using Banewhip Punisher as a sac outlet? It's quite powerful on curve, and can be followed up with Journey + sac. Check out my list for ideas if you're interested!

This has reached #5!!! Congrats! +1.

Love the decklist, I wouldn't change much. But, have you considered Woodland Cemetery instead of Blooming Marsh as it coming into play untapped is a slightly bigger chance than Marsh.
