"Kamarupa (Sk.). Metaphysically, and in our esoteric philosophy, it is the subjective form created through the mental and physical desires and thoughts in connection with things of matter, by all sentient beings, a form which survives the death of their bodies. After that death three of the seven “principles”—or let us say planes of senses and consciousness on which the human instincts and ideation act in turn—viz., the body, its astral prototype and physical vitality,—being of no further use, remain on earth; the three higher principles, grouped into one, merge into the state of Devachan (q.v.), in which state the Higher Ego will remain until the hour for a new reincarnation arrives; and the eidolon of the ex-Personality is left alone in its new abode. Here, the pale copy of the man that was, vegetates for a period of time, the duration of which is variable and according to the element of materiality which is left in it, and which is determined by the past life of the defunct. Bereft as it is of its higher mind, spirit and physical senses, if left alone to its own senseless devices, it will gradually fade out and disintegrate. But, if forcibly drawn back into the terrestrial sphere whether by the passionate desires and appeals of the surviving friends or by regular necromantic practices—one of the most pernicious of which is medium- ship—the “spook” may prevail for a period greatly exceeding the span of the natural life of its body. Once the Kamarupa has learnt the way back to living human bodies, it becomes a vampire, feeding on the vitality of those who are so anxious for its company. In India these eidolons are called Pisâchas, and are much dreaded, as already explained elsewhere." - (http://theosophy.wiki/w-en/index.php?title=Kama-Rupa)

I started playing casually somewhere around 2012 and settled on Modern as my format of choice, being slower than Legacy, and smarter on price than Standard. This was before a lot of newer formats were popular or even existed. If I started playing now, I might chose Paper Pauper or Frontier as my format of choice.

I like hashing out ideas here on tappedout in the form of decks. I used to playtest my budget ideas for paper online at untap.in, but since V2 and continuing with V3, have found the lag too great to remain viable, so I've switched to Cockatrice, where I mostly playtest multiplayer against my friends. Sometimes, when I really enjoy playing a deck online, I'll try to build it in paper, too. Often, though, I'll hash out ideas that are either too slow, convoluted, or otherwise fruitless. That's the way it goes with brewing!

I've been doing semi-profession graphic design for a over a decade. Sometimes I create custom tokens - just pairing an existing nice image with a customizable full art card frame. I'm open to requests as my time allows. I'm especially interested in working with quality original art. Here's a link to a Spirit-Warrior token I made for Kin-Tree Invocation https://ibb.co/QmXsBb4

This is an actual card, and therefore, if I understand correctly, does not belong here.

If being Modern-legal isn't something this deck cares about, then Aggravated Assault is a no-brainer with Savage Ventmaw

I can't get it to work :( Is there something wrong with my link, perhaps? https://ibb.co/QmXsBb4 Also, I tried to use the "Image" option and that didn't work either. My feeble head is spinning in frustration.

my bad, didn't see Consume Spirit in your sideboard.

I don't think you need Leyline of Sanctity in the mainboard. I'd move it to the sideboard in favor of Oppressive Rays .

Metallic Mimic , Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , & Grateful Apparition seem to pair up well with each other. Tezzeret's Gambit fits with them as well. Venser, the Sojourner seems like a possible fit, too, though his CMC isn't ideal. I'm guessing you'd get more mileage out of Dovin, Grand Arbiter . Unclaimed Territory or Ancient Ziggurat seem like possible land additions.

Sideboard ideas: Blessed Alliance , Nevermore , Revoke Existence (super against stuff like Hangarback Walker , etc) Ratchet Bomb , Pithing Needle , Elixir of Immortality , Shalai, Voice of Plenty and Teyo, the Shieldmage are cheaper than Leyline of Sanctity , Celestial Purge

Hey! Thanks for thanking me for my thanks! ;P It's really easy to link users and cards here! All you have to do is add 2xbrackets on either side of what you want to link. For example, [ [arbor elf] ] with the spaces between the brackets removed gets us Arbor Elf . This works on decks and users, too, provided the deck has a unique name. For example, Simple Folk, TwoStepNancy.

The main reason I suggested Sign in Blood is because you can target opponents. If they're down to 2 life, it kills them. So it's got some versatility as well. My thoughts on Priest of Forgotten Gods is that it would give you a means of activating Undying while also giving you a lot of advantages. I don't know whether it'll be worth a slot here, but I thought you might consider it or playtest it a bit.

Ratchet Bomb in the sideboard. It hoses tokens and can also help you remove Enchantments. Everlasting Torment might be useful, too.

Fate Transfer would be another way to remove counters from Undying creatures.

Sign in Blood and Bump in the Night seem like possible mainboard fits. Priest of Forgotten Gods also seems worth considering.

If you want an alternative way to abuse Undying creatures, Solemnity fits the bill. Geralf's Messenger + Solemnity + Viscera Seer is an infinite combo.
