Love the deck. I'm going to try to make my own version of this. I think if you are going to play Gaea's Cradle you might also just add in a Bayou no?

I think a few more lands what help tremendously. You want to hit your land drop each and every turn, no exceptions, and without any of the usual mana dorks green runs ( Arbor Elf , Llanowar Elves etc) I think 17 is a bit low. I see you have Whisperer of the Wilds , but even so. Good news is that once you figure out what you’re taking out to make room, you don’t need any super expensive lands. Bayou would be ideal, but a couple extra Forests is just fine.

Also, maybe I’m just overlooking something, but how are you getting Whisperer of the Wilds out Turn 1?

Are cards like Bayou and Tropical Island really necessary? because I love the deck, just not the completely overpriced cards. (no offense)

Nice! Love to see another RB-based reanimator player. My list is here: NEED 4 T1 GRISELBRAND

I run the version that just runs a Bayou to cast Reverent Silence for free, but I know the Wear / Tear version is just as viable, so up to you. I will definitely say I recommend the heck out of a Grave Titan in the sideboard. It's a very good option for when you need to play a fairer game post-board because it's pretty easy to hardcast. I also prefer Tidespout Tyrant mainboard over Ashen Rider because it's far more flexible. Just as good against UB reanimator and Sneak&Show, but also fair game against Death and Taxes, Delver, and most other strategies tbh. You lose the ability to hardcast, but I think it more than makes up for it. The games you have to hardcast something are definitely not in your favor anyway!

RNR_Gaming on Slivers

My girlfriend just asked me to put Slivers back together. Anyways, as far as the land base goes I'm gunna list. Things out by cost/relevancy

duals I know eww reserved list but if you got em or can proxy em play em

Tundra, Plateau, Tropical Island, Volcanic Island, Bayou, Badlands, Scrubland, Savannah, Underground Sea, and Taiga

fetches they're getting their reprint in modern horizons 2 but still stupid expensive - but the fixing is just so good!

Flooded Strand, Polluted Delta, Scalding Tarn, Misty Rainforest, Prismatic Vista, Verdant Catacombs, Wooded Foothills, Bloodstained Mire, Windswept Heath, Marsh Flats and Arid Mesa

Utopia lands

Reflecting Pool, Cavern of Souls, City of Brass, Tarnished Citadel, Mana Confluence, Forbidden Orchard, Exotic Orchard, Meteor Crater, Pillar of the Paruns, Ancient Ziggurat, Path of Ancestry, Thran Quarry, Gemstone Mine, Aether Hub and Tendo Ice Bridge

I'm not a mega fan of the depletion lands but they're excellent if you're on a budget :)

shocks - you already got a few I'll recommend getting the rest

Blood Crypt, Temple Garden, Godless Shrine, Steam Vents and Sacred Foundry

Utility lands very overpriced cardboard but the power is definitely there

Mutavault, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Gaea's Cradle

From there, if those cards are out of budget/you cannot proxy I'd go with the Triomes, battlebond lands Sea of Clouds, check lands Hinterland Harbor, and lastly the painlands Battlefield Forge beyond those the lands start becoming too inefficient and you will be targeted playing slivers. Even if you're not the threat having a slow land base is a death sentence. Hope this helped :)

SynergyBuild on I don't have the fancy …

Rather than checklands and OG Duals, with Woodland Cemetery, Taiga, Rootbound Crag, Dragonskull Summit, Bayou, and Badlands, you can use the following package:

1x Nurturing Peatland

1x Karplusan Forest

1x Llanowar Wastes

1x Sulfurous Springs

1x Luxury Suite

1x Spire Garden

Well met, young callant! I have some suggestions with your names on them. Such a strange coincidence.

You'll need Black Lotus, this verson of Sol Ring, perhaps a dual land or two...

Jests aside, let's do this.

So, I see budget, I see counters, I see mill. Let's start with mill.

One does not simply play a graveyard deck bereft of the following: Satyr Wayfinder finds some lands whiles stocking the bin. Grisly Salvage is morbidly efficient, finding creatures and lands. Winding Way does the forenamed, whereupon it sometimes betrays you (Don't look it in the eye). Grapple with the Past brings stuff back and loads the bin. It feels great. Funeral Rites is fine and straight-forward. Ransack the Lab is cheap whiles bearing efficacy.

If you're feeling betaken to your graveyard chicanery, Perpetual Timepiece does an absolutely lovely job of stocking the bin.

Backup versions of the commander's ability are evermore a cruciality. Sevinne's Reclamation is great, as with Sun Titan. "Six mana?! :(" you say. "It's worth it! :D" I respond.

A little more on the affluent side, but The Gitrog Monster, Ramunap Excavator, and Dread Return could be worth inclusion, for they are quite splendid.

Ahem. DEATH'S OASIS?! It mills, it fills, and eventually it kills. Moreover, it is three to cast, thusly on-theme.

Okay, now counters!

(I've never built any counter-themed decks. You have been warned.) Upon my presaged failures, all I have to proffer is Inspiring Call and Armorcraft Judge. Take it or leave it.

Unto the intrinsic:

Let us protect thine commander! Selfless Spirit is out of budget yet amazing, Saffi Eriksdotter is of a similar role, and Dauntless Bodyguard, along withal Selfless Savior, are budget options for choice.

Ramp, ramp, ramp. I care not that your curve is low, ramp! Rampant Growth, Nature's Lore, Edge of Autumn, ilka of these are fantastic.

There are two routes in commander decks (when playing fairly); a low-curve with a foison of card draw or a higher curve with less card draw. Low-curve = more card draw. I'd add Painful Truths, Sign in Blood, Funeral Rites, Ransack the Lab

I am biased, but I put Once Upon a Time in literally all of my green decks. 'Tis most lovely each time I cast the gest.

And therefrom is the finis of my comment. Fare thee well and may fortune betide!
