Creature — Human Cleric

Cleric spells you cast cost (White)(Black) less to cast. This effect reduces only the amount of colored mana you pay. (For example, if you cast a Cleric spell with mana cost 1(White), it costs 1 to cast.)

Wracked Angel

Creature - Angel

Flying, first strike

Other creatures you control get -1/-1.


Create a card that reduces colored mana costs, like Morophon, the Boundless, Ragemonger, or Edgewalker.

     Gadianten: Thanks for the suggestions! A few of them have actually already been in and out of the deck a number of times. I was thinking recently that Buried Alive should go back in, good call!

     Hadn't considered Priest of Gix or Yawgmoth's Bargain, but I think both are probably going to make it in as well, excellent suggestions!

     Edgewalker was cut a while ago, and the deck's average CMC has dropped since then as well. I often felt the cost reduction was relatively inconsequential. Same goes for Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim. Good card, but I found I almost never actually activated her, and the removal portion is pretty well covered by the deck's removal package.

     Not sure about Gift of Immortality and Dance of the Dead. I often feel like I have too many slots devoted to Reanimation cards as it is. I've considered cutting Animate Dead a few times, but haven't due to it's great synergy with Hall of Heliod's Generosity - which of course both of your suggestions here would take advantage of as well. Perhaps I'll swap Victimize out for Gift of Immortality.. something to think about!

     Thanks again, really great suggestions! =D

Alright, you NEED Buried Alive as it will enable you to abuse tools you already have in the deck. Choose Yawgmoth, Thran Physician + Karmic Guide + Reveillark and [Insert Reanimate like effect] to revive Reveillark to make a Yawgmoth's Bargain that murders your opponets creatures. Draw cards until you get a winning combo while clearing the board of all creatures you dislike. It is VERY easy to draw 20 or more cards this way and if you have lifegain you can draw as many cards as you want. I cant overstate how powerful this ability is and if you have something like Zulaport Cutthroat out you pretty much win.

Some other considerations for the deck are Edgewalker for the discounts, Priest of Gix for reanimation mana abuse, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim as a sacrificial outlet of mass destruction and Heliod's Pilgrim as a useful in tribe tool box fetch creature. I think a good tool box would be Gift of Immortality and Dance of the Dead in addition to your current Animate Dead. Pretty helpful to ensure a way to revive off a Buried Alive play. Gift of Immortality is pretty funny with cards like Selfless Spirit or even Yawgmoth, Thran Physician for value.

     Sorry it took so long for me to get back to you on this! I like your build but I do have a few questions and suggestions. =)

     I assume not running Ashnod's Altar and/or Phyrexian Altar is part of the pursuit of making this a 'fair' deck? I think I'd still recommend a few sacrifice outlets like Viscera Seer or maybe Altar of Dementia.

     Do you feel like you're getting good value out of Herald's Horn? I used to run Edgewalker and Urza's Incubator in my build but eventually cut them as I didn't feel my creature package had a high enough average CMC to make them worthwhile. If you like the extra card advantage from it then I wonder if Phyrexian Arena would be a better fit in this slot for you?

     I also cut Mother of Runes and Giver of Runes in favour of Benevolent Bodyguard and Vigilant Martyr as I really felt like I needed creatures I wanted to kill.

     I kind of disagree with your inclusion of Containment Priest, Athreos, God of Passage & Liesa, Forgotten Archangel, as Orah wants things in your graveyard. And his trigger will cause Containment Priest to exile whatever you return to the battlefield. If you're looking for wipe protection you may get better value out of Faith's Reward or Akroma's Will.

     Only other suggestion is more lands! Especially if you're not willing to run the mana Altars. Thirty-two lands is simply too few without significantly more card draw.

     I hope I was helpful, and thanks again for checking out my build! =)

  1. "I tried this deck without any tutors except Rune-Scarred Demon and Razaketh, the Foulblooded, added some redundant pieces like Cruel Celebrant, and added more draw too. It still had a whiff rate I didn't like. So I'm shooting for a tuned 80%."

Have you tried Vilis, Broker of Blood instead of rune-scared? Rune tutors 1 thing.. vilis lets you keep drawing and playing shadowborn

  1. "I did see Aetherflux Reservoir as a popular win condition. I've played it in other decks before so I thought I would try something different here. I think it fits in the same spot as Mortal Combat for me. What do you think about either of these? I kind of like having a free win card in the deck."

I like free win cards.. I would have one in every deck if i could.

  1. "Peer into the Abyss I had not even thought of here. It makes sense in the same way Ad Nauseam does but what's interesting is that 1/3 of the cards I would eventually discard at end of turn would be Shadowborn Apostles. So if there is a Immortal Servitude effect in hand that is bonkers! I might have to try this out to understand it better. Funny how I'm OK with this kind of half life risk but not Carnival of Souls. :D"

Now just imagine you had Edgewalker on the field with blood artist, and phyrexian altar.

Yes you are right Carnival of Souls is aggressive.. you have the cards to make it not so much. Example... Blood Artist and a sac outlet you could secret salvage without Edgewalker and still cast all of your shadowborn. It is an acquired taste lol.

Your decklist is fun and i'm glad people are still making these.

Btw here is my deck if you want a look.

I'd also consider putting Edgewalker in to reduce your cleric cost. I think that small reduction can help with some explosive turns.

Yeah, those are great! Edgewalker is amazing because he also ramps you on notable card Battletide Alchemist. Oh, and I just thought of the best card for the deck: Winota, Joiner of Forces. This card is broken, giving you every creature you could ever want.

sub780lime I must've missed Agadeem's Awakening  Flip. There's no reason not to include it. Taborax, Hope's Demise can be fun, but he doesn't provide any value to this deck since we don't play many clerics. I could see him in a more cleric-centric shell with Rotlung Reanimator, Edgewalker, etc. Or, I'm sure he'd work well as a commander on his own, especially with Shadowborn Apostles.
