Agadeem's Awakening

Sorcery

Return from your graveyard to the battlefield any number of target creature cards that each have a different converted mana cost that is X or less.

This is a pretty well-made deck so far.

As Jupiter_Ascendancy mentions, Dismember might work here. I would also suggest Dark Confidant, Agadeem's Awakening  Flip, Font of Agonies and maybe Vilis, Broker of Blood but the latter is definitely a bit on the expensive side mana-wise. Those cards should all be pretty useful in your deck.

AceDallenbach thanks for your suggestions, As you say, Skullclamp would also be good to use, but it doesn't quite fit my idea personally.

Tragic Slip is very interesting and I'll give that a try and see if Dismember or Tragic Slip makes more sense in my meta.

Razaketh, the Foulblooded I had already considered and even put him in the folder, but the sacrifice put me off. If I see how consistently I'm allowed to keep my tokens, it could actually go into the deck.

Agadeem's Awakening  Flip I forgot, of course it can replace a swamp.

I was unsure if Bubbling Muck or Dark Ritual... but yeah you're right, in the late game it's stronger and it's not said that Dark Ritual is on one of the early ones hands is...

Darkness and Reanimate are both very strong cards for the deck, I'll test which one is more rewarding in practice.

I will try the suggestions step by step and the ones that were convincing will go into the deck :-)

Hey honestly this current build is pretty solid. Skullclamp came to mind and since you are running Bitterblossom and Ophiomancer there is some synergy that could argue for the extra-card draw.

I also saw you are running Dismember not a bad card by any means, but what about Tragic Slip? Personally I find it preforms better in this slot, sure it isn’t as versatile but creature deaths are very common and you have the means to force creature deaths to where the -13/-13 is most likely going to be the outcome.

Razaketh, the Foulblooded is expensive in both money and mana but it wins games. Pay two life to tutor is gross.

Harvester of Souls is a personal favorite but I don’t know if you have enough creatures to justify it.

Agadeem's Awakening  Flip there really isn’t a reason not to run this card in most black decks. Worst case its a swamp that costs you 3 life to play early game. late game it can bring back anything that was removed in the early game. It’s super-flexible strongly recommend it.

I’m going to suggest Bubbling Muck. I love Dark Ritual early game but the bubbles is so strong late game, especially if you are going to win by casting Torment of Hailfire.

Lastly Darkness. Really love a fog in a non-green color, especially with this deck. I see anyone playing this deck quickly turning into the archenemy of the table since most do not like stack effects which is what this deck is. Feign Death is a cool card since it can save a creature from a broad range of removal but I still think Reanimate or Darkness would be a better card in that slot.

Anyways hope this helped, great deck!

Thanks Beebles!!!

Oooh, I really like the idea of bounce lands with untappers! Priest of Titania I think falls a bit too much under the need for changing my own creature types on the regular, which I'd rather avoid. Are there any of those ramp cards you'd suggest I replace? I agree, 35 lands has been a bit on the low end for me. Maybe I could swap in a Valakut Awakening  Flip to provide some draw along with modal land? Or Agadeem's Awakening  Flip for a land or late-game recursion?

What kind of card draw are you thinking? Things like Verity Circle and Viridian Revel that gain value passively? Or Painful Truths and Sign in Blood for small one-shot effects, or Pull from Tomorrow and Stroke of Genius types for big single-turn mass-draws. I figured I could lower the draw with Dragon's Hoard, Tiamat, and Sliver Overlord all repeatedly giving tutor draw in addition to the deck's tutors. Would love suggestions if you know of any like Species Specialist I missed that would be on theme! With my lack of consistent discard outlets, Haakon has most often been discarded to hand-size after Tiamat comes into play, so I couldn't run Sea Gate Restoration  Flip

a few other options that came to mind that might be a good option.

  1. Unearth
  2. Beast Within
  3. Feed the Swarm
  4. Damnation
  5. Agadeem's Awakening  Flip
  6. Snuff Out
  7. Killing Wave

DawnsRayofLight on Chainer, Dementia Master

As someone who has played Chainer for close to a decade, I have some suggestions I would like to offer. (though everyone's decks run differently!)

34-35 lands is usually enough. I would recommend 34 with Agadeem's Awakening  Flip that gives you 5 spots:

In those spots:

Mana Crypt

Thought Vessel

Charcoal Diamond

Coldsteel Heart

Jet Medallion

(Or all the expensive artifacts like Grim Monolith or what have you)

In place of:

1x Cast Down--> Lethal Scheme: This card is amazing in any reanimator list

1x Culling the Weak--> Phyrexian Altar: you need more sac outlets with some staying power

1x Dismember--> Soul Transfer: seems janky, but versatile

1x Doom Blade--> Baleful Mastery: you can hit more with it.

1x Go for the Throat--> Infernal Grasp

1x Power Word Kill--> Deadly Rollick/Altar of Dementia: for a better killspell or for a sac outlet

1x Sacrifice--> Ashnod's Altar: need more sac outlets with staying power

1x Terror--> Meteor Golem: This guy helps so much with things Black cannot remove

1x Victim of Night--> Karn Liberated: This guy helps so much with things Black cannot remove

Cruel Tutor--> Mikaeus, the Unhallowed: bonkers for some staying power, also has combo potential

Unmarked Grave--> Putrid Goblin: this or Walking Ballista are good for combos with Mikaeus. Putrid GOblin + Ashnod's Altar/Phyrexian Altar + Mikaeus = infinite mana (or sub ashnod's altar for mill).

Suggested Drops, see next list for suggested replacements

Blood Pet--> sort of an eh card, I might think of something with more oomph

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip--> I do like her, she just never did anything when I ran her.

Ruthless Technomancer: I have debated a lot adding him, in something like Korvold, he is an all-star, in chainer, he can be good, but I would almost always rather have Disciple of Bolas

Skirge Familiar: I get the reason it is in here, but there are better cards.

Black Market: It's nice, but can be too slow.

Liliana of the Dark Realms: I just have never been a big fan, she feels too lackluster.

Final Parting: good card, but I feel you can part with some tutor because you have MORE than enough

Sidisi, Undead Vizier: good card, but I feel you can part with some tutor because you have MORE than enough

Rune-Scarred Demon: good card, but I feel you can part with some tutor because you have MORE than enough, there also some stronger creatures to fit in the spot.

Suggestions

Archon of Cruelty: expensive mana wise but an all star.

Kokusho, the Evening Star: has been in my deck from the beginning and has flat out won me games.

Brainstealer Dragon: seems janky, but I added to just try it and it has been amazing.

Black Market Connections: You need more draw (also helps with ramp)

Phyrexian Arena: You need more draw

Bolas's Citadel: an amazing card. Wins games all the time.

Disciple of Bolas: card draw and life gain

Fell Stinger: card draw

Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed: Great for recursion

Reanimate, Liliana, Death's Majesty, Living Death. and Animate Dead: it is good to have other means of reanimation if Chainer keeps getting removed (I also suggest sac outlets to help keep your creatures from getting exiled when they spot remove Chainer)

Hope this helps! Here is my list to maybe show you how I run the list: The True Meaning of Death and Taxes

Oh (bleep) you're right! LMAO. Like I said, I've been playing since Revised and have a LOT of decks. Always had a penchant for tribal knights (even though there have been/are better tribes for sure through the years). My Modern version does, in fact, run Giver of Runes. The Kor designation doesn't allow me to Cavern of Souls her in but I do run plenty of white sources. I'm sorry bud. 100% my bad. Sorry about that. I need to NOT drink my scotch and give advice. I just get soooooo excited when I see a solid knight tribal build I lose control.

I WILL post my ACTUAL MODERN legal version in the next few days. Giver of Runes is my only non-human or non knight creature in that deck. I run everything else human and/or knight in that deck-most are both. I announce my first Cavern of Souls as "knight" which prevents counter magic on all but the Giver of Runes and Noble Hierarch. Those both being (ideally) early drops-counter magic doesn't normally come into play.

My current, most regularly played, Modern deck is not knights (although I do play it still for a change of pace once in awhile but it's not my number one deck-hence my leading you astray). My current regular MODERN deck is as follows:

Deck: Greif Blade

Main: 4 Ephemerate 1 Poet's Quill 1 Batterskull 4 Giver of Runes 1 Sword of Fire and Ice 2 Plains 3 Godless Shrine 3 Concealed Courtyard 3 Skyclave Apparition 1 Takenuma, Abandoned Mire 3 Tidehollow Sculler 2 Malakir Rebirth  Flip 2 Charming Prince 1 Kaldra Compleat 1 Silent Clearing 1 Shriekmaw 4 Grief 3 Feign Death 4 Marsh Flats 1 Lion Sash 1 Flooded Strand 3 Touch the Spirit Realm 1 Swamp 1 Castle Locthwain 2 Agadeem's Awakening  Flip 2 Solitude 4 Stoneforge Mystic 1 Verdant Catacombs

Sideboard: 2 Leyline of Sanctity 1 Shadowspear 2 Damn 1 Sword of Sinew and Steel 2 Damping Sphere 2 Sanctum Prelate 2 Kaya's Guile 2 Dauthi Voidwalker 1 Reduce to Memory

This is the list I run most frequently so it's the one I know best and have readily available to share. This is NOT a net-deck AFAIK. If there is an identical or similar list floating around in Cyberspace it's purely coincidental. This list was home brewed and is one of my favorites I've ever made through the years.
