For I have become God, Bringer of Life and Death

Commander / EDH*



This is a WIP top deck reanimator deck utilizing some of the new C18 cards. Aminatou is great value as a new walker 'mander, and I've been itching for a new deck challenge. I came up with Esper Top Deck Reanimator. The idea is to use top deck control in order to cheat cards onto the battlefield with cards like Gate to the AEther. This card seems really sweet in a deck where we get to choose our free drop from our top deck while our oppents are left guessing. We also abuse this strategy with Djinn of Wishes and Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign. Cheating out early game Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and Sheoldred, Whispering One seems pretty sweet. Sheoldred feels even better with specialized draw-ish spells like, Contingency Plan and Taigam's Scheming to put reanimating fuel into the graveyard. EVERY one of our creatures is meant to leave an effective footprint on the game. This is why we only include Stormscape Familiar as early game ramp assistance. But ideally we have enough tutors in Demonic, Vampiric, Idyllic, Enlightened, Exhume, Buried Alive, etc., that we can get something big in our bin and some form of reanimation into our hand pretty quickly. We use our standard removal package with Utter End, Vindicate, Anguished Unmaking, Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, and finally a good ol' salty Cyclonic Rift (RESULTS MAY VARY, ASK YOUR DOCTOR IF CYCLONIC RIFT IS RIGHT FOR YOU). We have sweepers in the aforementioned rift, Wrath of God, Terminus, Supreme Verdict, Devastation Tide, and to a lesser extent, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. We also have a sweet little package in Academy Rector+Omniscience. I do however, also love the idea of playing an Enlightened Tutor with Gate to the AEther on board to put at Omniscience on top right before your turn, so that you can put it into play on your upkeep very sneakily. I Can't wait to see some of the other synergies that this deck has.
