Thanks! The idea behind why Arcane Denial is bad can be boiled down to a very simple concept: if your opponents aren't playing bad card, then you can't make them draw bad/useless cards off Arcane Denial. The other reason is that the deck already had enough slots devoted to countermagic, and the ones in there are all better than Arcane Denial.

(If this is a joke, I'm sorry for not noticing) I wholeheartedly disagree. Giving every deck access to Key + Time Vault or Painter*s Servant + Grindstone is really unhealthy and heavily shifts the whole Meta towards Fast Combo.

Yes, all the time. Memory's Journey has been super useful as our lifeline after any sort of graveyard interaction from our opponents.

No worries, feel free to ask away.

Buried Alive isn't in the deck because we don't actually have a line that immediately wins with Buried Alive and a Reanimation spell that doesn't give haste. The one we'd need for that would be Necrotic Ooze + Phyrexian Devourer + Walking Ballista, and the CMC of our deck is too low to support a Phyrexian Devourer kill.

The standard Necrotic Ooze line is:

  1. Get your whole library into your graveyard
  2. Flashback Dread Return, targeting Necrotic Ooze
  3. Use Wall of Roots' ability, putting a -0/-1 counter on Nooze to make G
  4. Use that G to pay for Blighted Bat's ability, giving Nooze haste
  5. Use a random Mana dork's ability to make one Mana and tap Nooze
  6. Use Devoted Druid's ability to put a -1/-1 counter on Nooze and untap it
  7. Use Channeler Initiate's ability, removing the -1/-1 counter to make one Mana of any colour
  8. Loop steps 6 and 7 to make infinite Mana of any colour
  9. Use Walking Ballista's ability to put infinite +1/+1 counters on Nooze
  10. Use Walking Ballista's other ability, removing +1/+1 counters to ping people.

It used to be in older iterations as another backup win condition, but I never ended up using it, so it got cut for something that lets me focus on my main lines instead.
