Thanks for the comment, fatalzintomyum, I'm glad you like the deck! I'm not quite sure what you mean when you say I should just play 4 Matter Reshaper since I am already running a full set. If you mean I should be playing Matter Reshaper as my lowest CMC creature, I already tried that in my first version of this deck and the deck didn't really run very smoothly, it was a little too slow to get started.
That being said, maybe I don't have to start at 1 CMC and go up from there, maybe I could go with what I think you're suggesting and start with 2 drops instead. Both Nest Invader and Eldrazi Skyspawner both look like excellent suggestions for ramp, but I think I might need the card draw effect like what Salvage Drone had more than ramp so I can find my Pyre of Heroes more reliably. Do you have any suggestions for 2 or 3 drops that can help me draw?
I think Endbringer and Drowner of Hope are both great suggestions for my 6 drops, maybe I'll try that out and see how I like it. Currently I'm just using the 6 CMC creatures as a toolbox so I can grab which ever one I think best fits the current situation and those look like they have a lot of utility!
I did also think about adding Wretched Gryff but I decided not to add it just because I thought Bane of Bala Ged was my best strongest 7 drop and I added in the Dread Defiler to make use of the creatures I was sacrificing and putting in my graveyard. I actually don't want to pod into my Elder Deep-Fiend cause it's ability only triggers if you cast it, and podding it just puts it onto the battlefield from the library.
Thanks again for the suggestions! I'll try them out and see if I can't improve this deck further!

Very true Good_Old_Phyrexian. Made this deck a while ago (probably didn't consider legend rule at the time). You would definitely want to use something like Bane of Bala Ged or Pathrazer of Ulamog instead of Ulamog himself in the combo then.
Won't be updating the deck though since I don't feel like editing a year old deck and bringing it to the top of my profile lol.

Thanks wallisface! Adding the 0 fixed it, I don't know why I didn't think of that haha
I always appreciate advice, so this is very much appreciated!
You're totally right about everything you said there. I've tried playing this deck in it's current state a few times and it just does not play consistently. At some point I'm going to try and remake this deck, this time starting with 1 CMC creatures like Salvage Drone or Blisterpod and going up to 7 or 8 CMC for Bane of Bala Ged and maybe Elder Deep-Fiend. I'll also ditch the late game cards for some earlier game interaction and try to make it not so dependent on Pyre of Heroes.
Thanks again for the advice, I'll use it to try and make this an actually viable deck!

If you're going to make this a deck, you should know that this applies to "when this creature attacks" triggers as well. For example, deploying Bane of Bala Ged via ninjutsu will not exile any permanents.

Looks like a good deck that can play out in a number of ways, and that's always the most fun. Plus, Wulfgar is an awesome character with a long history, so it's always awesome to see him come out and play.
The only thing I can think of is maybe Blade of Selves and Sword of the Animist They both trigger on attacks, so I could be wrong, but they should work with Wulfgar. Plus, blade of selves could get nuts on double trigger, creating more copies, and getting more extra triggers off more copies. It might actually get hard to keep track of : ) But if something like Bane of Bala Ged attacks with Blade of Selves then goes double myriad, then each of those copies triggers attacks...yeah...maybe pretty good : )
Other that that, I don't know, it looks great. So many big beaty creatures that will pull double duty with Wulfgar and all the support they need to come out and play.

Hey, this is a really good start for could be less than $50, but you did forget Sol Ring.
Anje Falkenrath is a nice budget legendary Vampire for repeatable loot to help to setup Olivia. Consider more sac outlets? Goblin Bombardment and High Market are excellent and Undercity Informer is fine. Consistently you really want a sac outlet to protect creatures you reanimate with Olivia from being exiled.
Falkenrath Aristocrat is a creature who Olivia can reanimate and since it has flying that helps it to survive combat since it enters attacking. Dark Privilege is a budget old/rarely seen card, but can be powerful when enchanted to Olivia. Repeatable regeneration can protect Olivia from combat damage letting her more freely attack to trigger. The creature Olivia reanimated can be fodder to sac to regenerate her which is helpful when you're reanimating a creature who has an ETB effect such as Vile Entomber. Viscera Seer is a one drop sac outlet that gives you some library manipulation to help draws.
Anje and the sac outlets are support cards and I think you can afford to cut a few high CMC creatures who have redundant effects to add them. You have many ways to tutor directly for a creature of your choice and put it into your graveyard which gives you leeway to play mostly the better creatures here to reanimate.
Some cuts to consider:
- Fractured Powerstone could be cut for Sol Ring.
- Kazarov, Sengir Pureblood could be cut for Anje Falkenrath.
- Bane of Bala Ged could be cut because Ulamog's Crusher and Artisan of Kozilek are better.
- Rakshasa Debaser could be cut since Sepulchral Primordial is better.
- Sengir, the Dark Baron could be cut since Necropolis Regent is better.
Good luck with your deck.

I'd replace Bristling Hydra with something else since you don't seem to have any other energy counter synergies.
Fog will always be a great for saving your ass in a pinch.
I'd focus a bit more on land ramp like Cultivate , Sakura-Tribe Elder and Kodama's Reach since relying on mana dorks in a deck full of expensive CMC creatures might make it more difficult for you to recover in the event of a board wipe. Vastwood Surge is actually really good too in the late-game since you can kick it to buff all your creatures.
