All good man, I always appreciate a thought out tribal deck. I'm no expert on commander, I almost solely play modern, so I really have no legit suggestions.

@shadow63 while these two cards do work well in the deck I don't think I can include them. Thought Reflection's CMC is just too high to make it efficient in this deck since I don't have many ways to ramp in this deck. It also has 3 symbols in a majority deck. Graf Harvest has good value but its secondary ability is pretty bad so I chose to opt for Lord of the Accursed instead since all of his abilities are useful. Thank you for the suggestions though!

DrkNinja that def would help me face against my friends reanimator decks but unfortunately it would also hinder me from being able to revive any of my cards from the grave. It would also render Varina, Lich Queen's secondary ability to generate tokens via grave removal useless. thanks for the suggestion though!

Thanks for pointing that out LittleBlueHero, I will fix and re-edit that when I have time. I will keep the card though because it still synergies well with how the deck works and with my revival and reanimation deck techs. Might drop Bojuka Bog though it does help with playing against other Reanimator decks. Will see what I can do Thanks though!

  • Artisan of Kozilek -free creature revive plus Annihilator 2
  • Clone Legion -borrow a copy of your opponents creatures or make more of your own!
  • Karn Liberated -GOLD
  • Nexus of Fate -Free turn that shuffles back in yes, please
  • Platinum Angel -you can't lose, enough said

    Both of em' are in the decklist as of now DrkNinja all though honestly, I'm having second thoughts about trading Austere Command for Cleansing Nova. I feel the variety in the choices it offered was worth the CMC of 6, but I'm testing out and running with as much advice as I can get. Hopefully, everything works out well.

    September 13, 2018 2:58 p.m.

    Hey multimedia, thanks again for your help. I have removed some of the cards you suggested that made sense to me in order to speed up the deck a bit. I ended up removing Austere Command for Cleansing Nova as it provides most of the same options while being 1 CMC less. I also removed costly token generating cards such as Necromancer's Covenant and From Under the Floorboards and the monster stealer Grave Betrayal. I also removed Gravespawn Sovereign to reduce the CMC and remove the last bit of creature steal in the deck. I added Liliana, the Last Hope, Graveyard Marshal, Nantuko Husk, and Shepherd of Rot in to reduce the cost in the deck. I was able to drop the deck from 3.7 CMC to 3.5. Not sure if said improvement will be noticeable during gameplay, but we shall see! Thanks again man I really do appreciate it.

    Yea and before I forget, I avoided cards like Living End, Living Death, and Patriarch's Bidding because of the off chance that I help my opponent. In my 5 man pod, I'm not the only one who rocks grave recursion. Buddy of mine has a wicked good dredge deck that I hate.

    DrkNinja I understand your entire deck isn't mill-based. I just don't think I want to commit to a card that converts all zombie combat damage into mill. I can see where Altar of the Brood would be useful but without the Undead Alchemist it wouldn't be nearly as effective and as I said before I feel like using the life drain effects of cards like Blood Artist and Diregraf Captain is much more effective than milling 1 card per rotation of combo. If Undead Alchemist wouldn't stop my combat damage maybe I would have a different opinion. As for coming off rude its fine. I don't take offense easily and I am only on this site to further better my deck building and combo skills. In other words, "No worries bro!"

    September 12, 2018 8:39 p.m.

    @DrkNinja thanks for the help elimination maybe board options. I removed almost all of your suggestions. As for the addition of mill to my deck, I'm going to pass. I already have a mill deck set for EDH if you wanna check it out but I would prefer to keep this deck as streamlined and aggressive as possible.

    Said on Rule #2: The ......


    I see what you did here DrkNinja. It's very similar to my deck though I think your deck budget blows mine out of the water without trying. Most of my "expensive" cards came from a deck I had constructed previously centered around "The Scarab God".

    Some simple adds that won't cost ya to increase your chance at win through mill are Jace's Erasure and Psychic Corrosion. These will help if you happen not to get Altar of the Brood or Sphinx's Tutelage. These next cards are a bit more pricey but will help you maintain a hand card advantage since Varina, Lich Queen only filters and doesn't offer help with your hand thinning out. I recommend Kindred Discovery and Vanquisher's Banner. These will help you not run out of cards and also synergize very well with Sphinx's Tutelage, Jace's Erasure, and Psychic Corrosion.

    In my deck, I avoided the mill strat because the deck was designed to be efficient in its win cons and its aggro. While I do agree that mill is a hilarious way to win, I feel in EDH it is too slow to be considered efficient. I also wanted to avoid fueling anyone's graveyard with re-accruable spells since I do play with players who favor reanimation and flashback in their deck strats. Thanks for the comment though and wish you the best of luck!

    NP man, you were trying to help all that matters bro

    September 12, 2018 10:40 a.m.

    Thanks Boza for the feedback... I will cut most of the cards you suggested and see how everything plays out. Hopefully all is good! ^_^

    I personally use the maybe board on this site to set up a sideboard for probable switches to the main board for deck flexibility. I like the formatting for the maybe board more than the formatting for the sideboard options on this site in specific. I asked to help eliminate sideboard switches and as Gidgetimer suggested to see if any of my sideboard options were better than my mainboard options. Sorry if I made any of that unclear in any way and sorry for the confusion. Thanks, both of you for your help DragonKing90

    September 12, 2018 10:06 a.m.

    Thanks again beakedbard, I will test out Viscera Seer and see how it works out. Orb of Dreams sometimes helps me stall a person the extra turn I need to kill them and of course combo's beautifully with Amulet of Vigor. Other than that, I use it as discard fodder for Varina, Lich Queen. It has won me games in the past and is I feel an underrated card. I can see why you would want to switch it for Attrition so I will make that its sideboard switch option. (Orb of Dreams doesn't work well against low creature based decks.) Mortify is another great removal option and I believe I actually own one already so I will make that switch.

    September 12, 2018 9:16 a.m.

    Help Eliminating cards off of my maybe board and possibly switching cards from maybe to main. New card suggestions welcomed as well.

    since your running 4x copies of each instant/sorcery did you ever consider running Pyromancer Ascension? It would be easy for you to pull off. Since you can discard the copies of retrace spells without it hurting you too much since you have retrace it makes it easy for you to get copies of spells into the graveyard via Faithless Looting. Another suggestion is Call to Mind. If you activate Pyromancer Ascension you will get a copy allowing you to get back Call to Mind after casting it as well as any instant or sorcery in your graveyard already! Let me know what ya think and feel free to check out my decks though I mostly play EDH. ^_^

    Prized Amalgam was there as a nice treat for reviving other cards like with Gravecrawler, Relentless Dead or with Havengul Lich's ability. It also triggers off of the undying ability that Mikaeus, the Unhallowed gives and Geralf's Messenger has. It's always nice to get a free 3/3 for sac fodder or for blocking if I have Amulet of Vigor in play.

    September 11, 2018 4:43 p.m.

    Thanks beakedbard, I will switch out Soulless One for Geralf's Messenger as I own a copy of both. As for Anguished Unmaking and Vindicate I don't own copies of these cards and they are pricey for a simple removal spell so I will pass atm. They are great cards without a doubt I just can't really dump any money into MTG atm. I will keep them in mind for the future when more funds become available. Anointed Procession is in the deck already as well as Endless Ranks of the Dead being side/maybe boarded. I don't particularly like Graveborn Muse and Viscera Seer's scry 1 seems unnecessary with Varina on the field filtering for me. Attrition is very interesting but still pose the question, what would I remove for it? Any thoughts beakedbard, multimedia or FLATSO99?
