Brought Back

Instant

Choose up to two target permanent cards in your graveyard that were put there from the battlefield this turn. Return them to the battlefield tapped.

Decent concept, I think the card counts/options are a bit off though.

First of all, how do you activate Slayers' Stronghold? You should run a Boros Garrison. Cut Thragtusk add Sun Titan. Elvish Reclaimer, Springbloom Druid, and Roiling Regrowth are good ramp options in addition to going harder on Harrow to feed Brought Back. You should also go harder on Flagstones of Trokair.

Urza's Saga also gets you to Amulet of Vigor and makes a decent Brought Back target. I'd also go a lot lighter on Oblivion Stone. Maybe run something like Porphyry Nodes if you are that scared of aggro, since all of your creatures you want to stick around will be large.

Aaalso, and sorry to double post : ) but The Wandering Emperor plus Brought Back was one of those moments of, this can't work, does it? But it definitely does. Play the emperor on their turn, use her ability, use it again on your turn, then when they go to kill her, Brought Back brings her back on the field at instant speed, then you can use her on that opponent's turn, then again. It sets a weird place of, sometimes when they try to get rid of her, they make her stronger.

Thank you KBK7101! This is my first time trying out Naya. Once Mazzy was spoiled, I swapped out anything with Blue in the color cost from my Tuvasa deck, and swapped in all the Red stuff I thought would fit. All in all, I think I made about a 45 card swap, including lands.

There was plenty of cool stuff in CLB. I think its proximity to Double Master's 2 dampened its debut and reception; especially given the quality of reprints coming up. I added a handful of CLB stuff to my Isshin deck, and have some other singles in binders for future use. I thought of making Jan Jansen, Chaos Crafter, and combining my Prosper and Osgir decks to make it happen.

I do like both your suggestions. I could see Brought Back as a likely test swap with Faith's Reward. I do like how much cheaper Brough Back is.

Uril, the Miststalker is an absolute house. I could likely swap out Baeloth Barrityl, Entertainer for it, def seems like a more proactive bomb. A friend in my playgroup used to run a Uril deck, and currently runs Marisi, Breaker of the Coil and Kardur, Doomscourge as commanders. I've experienced firsthand how hard Uril can be to deal with lol.

Very cool! I love Naya as a color combo. It can go so many different ways. I'm also glad to see people enjoying some of the CLB cards because all I see online is how bad it "flopped".

I'm really tempted to make a deck or two of the DnD commanders but my vorthos obsessed self would probably make the entire deck out of cards from AFR and CLB exclusively. Haha

Thoughts on adding Brought Back and Uril, the Miststalker (freshly reprinted!)?

Brightwrath Great question about removal sources. 9 Sources might be considered low, but we also play Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, and Enlightened Tutor which can get Grave Pact or The Meathook Massacre to deal with creatures. So technically, if we need to deal with a game-ending permanent, we have 12 sources to do so. However, tailoring your removal to your meta is pretty important. My meta ranges from mid to high powered casual in which combo kills are somewhat uncommon, but fast ramp, high powered threats, and control are rampant. This means I've tailored this list to favor recovering from boardwipes and outspeed my opponents rather than rely on a more controlling plan. That being said, if you find yourself dying to specific permanent threats like Ashnod's Altar, Hermit Druid, or Stasis, playing more single target removal could help. Despark, Rite of Oblivion, Path to Exile, Generous Gift, and Disenchant are all strong options depending on what you need. Personally, I haven't felt lacking in that department since I have tutors, can grab Grave Pact if I need to continuously control creatures, and my meta plays artifact/enchantment decks uncommonly.

You can definitely go without running the off-color fetches. While it will make your mana less consistent, I'd run more basics than sometimes-tapped duals. A land entering tapped can be game-losing, but you'll still probably have enough multicolored mana to not get color screwed. Additionally, if you cut those fetches, you should consider not playing Brought Back since it gets a lot of its value from them. It might be a good cut for another removal spell.

Thanks for your kind words and I'm glad you like the list!

I saw that you're trying to keep this on a budget, so absolutely ignore as much of this as necessary.

Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Suture Priest, Karlov of the Ghost Council, Phyrexian Tower, Altar of Dementia, Phyrexian Altar, Pawn of Ulamog, Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Nether Traitor, Ravenous Chupacabra, Brought Back, Tragic Slip

There's really a lot you can do, so I will leave it here for now.

No matter what you decide to do, I highly recommend cutting Temple of the False God and replacing it with almost any other land, even just another basic. That card is a dead land for the first 4 turns of the game and I personally feel that it's more productive to have something more reliable.
