Exhume

Sorcery

Each player puts a creature card from their graveyard onto the battlefield.

I looked until the cards starting with F on scryfall, and here are some card recommendations I have. I don't often play aristocrats decks, so I'm sorry if this isn't very helpful.

Removal: Avatar of Woe, Defile, Dismember

Reanimation: All Hallow's Eve, Balthor the Defiled, Exhume, Dance of the Dead

Ramp: Blood Pet, Blood Vassal, Cabal Ritual, Culling the Weak

Other: Carnival of Souls

I might run fewer/creatures, since stickfingers will until you reveal x creatures, not just x cards. The fewer you have the higher chance you hit one that destroys the table if you just overload on ramp and reanimates. Rather than these things Crawl from the Cellar,Ghoul's Feast,Gravepurge I'd focus on just reanimating and is easy to get and will probably serve you better. If you really do want it back in your hand Genesis Skullwinder and Eternal Witness do this while attached to a body.

Rather than sending to your hand these will just bring back Diregraf Rebirth, Victimize, Reanimate, Exhume, Unearth, Whisper, Blood Liturgist, Stitch Together,Dread Return.Geth, Lord of the Vault is expensive but can fill your yard as well as revive others. Finale of Devastation revives or tutors, and is a finisher.

Blossoming Wreath,Gnaw to the Bone probably heal less than lifelink, and there's a ton of ways to give lifelink.

Rampant Growth is slightly inferior to Three Visits and Nature's Lore as long as your dual lands have both typesOvergrown Tomb, Bayou, Woodland Chasm, although I'd definitely run all three if there's room. Culling Ritual would be an amazing ramp/wipe card you can use to nuke all tokens and then cast stickfingers. Sakura-Tribe Elder is just rampant growth that works as a blocker for one turn, and it is another creature in your graveyard. Lotus Cobra ramps too, particularly with your other ramp options.

And you'll likey have enough mana to use Decree of Pain, if not, other wipe options are Damnation,Pernicious Deed,Death Cloud,Deathbringer Regent,In Garruk's Wake,Killing Wave,Necromantic Selection,Plague Wind,Reiver Demon,Toxic Deluge. Torment of Hailfire works as a finisher too Endurance is basically the only way you can protect your graveyard that I can think of. I'd probably run Veil of Summer too.

Moodmark Painter gives the +x/+x buff and is on a body Garruk Relentless  Flip flips into Garruk, the Veil-Cursed, but its tricky to make this one work

Since you'll have access to really big creatures these can be nice for draw. Greater Good, Momentous Fall, Return of the Wildspeaker, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Morbid Curiosity, Life's Legacy, Disciple of Bolas, Doom Weaver, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds.

Mesmeric Orb,Stitcher's Supplier would be an amazing graveyard filler.

Zombie Infestation and Wild Mongrel is usefull for dumping creatures out of your hand

I think every single black deck should run Dauthi Voidwalker, and the more grave hate you have the more you could take advantage of Living End/Living Death if you use these as mass reanimates. they are the cheapest.

Life from the Loam and Bala Ged Recovery  Flip would be good helps for mana and options.

As long as you run Filth run Crop Rotation and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth too since it will make every creature you have unblockable.

Deathrite Shaman would benefit from more fetch lands Marsh Flats,Verdant Catacombs,Misty Rainforest would help mana fix as well as throw more lands into your graveyard.

You have a fairly high number of tutors, and a ton of ramp, so i'd consider Panglacial Wurm. It's a card you dont need to waste a draw to get and can be cast instant speed. And its fun to surprise people with it at least once.

multimedia on Rakdos, Lord of Riots Demon Tribal

3 months ago

In my last comment suggested a lot of cards to add, now here's some cards to consider cutting. For cards to consider cutting I would start with all the lower mana cost nonDemon creatures. I would simply replace these with other lower mana cost cards that can better enable Rakdos without attacking and reduce creature mana costs without attacking.

Rather than playing a lot of single creature removal spells, rely more on Demons who can destroy or remove creatures? Especially Demons who have repeatable removal effects. You could cut many creature removal spells and replace them with more draw.

Searing Spear, Shock, Disintegrate can target a player to make them lose life, but you have Lightning Bolt for that and you can make opponent lose life better ways then playing single burn spells. Some budget single removal spells are helpful such as Chaos Warp and Feed the Swarm because these spells can remove an enchantment, Warp any permanent. When attacking is important to your game plan these can remove Ghostly Prison, Propaganda and others.


Rakdos can only reduce the mana cost of creatures therefore play very few noncreature high mana cost spells or spells that require a lot of mana to be useful. Spells that need a lot mana paid to make them decent is not really what you want when playing many high mana cost creatures. Could cut these for more draw and ramp.

Rolling Earthquake is a budget spell like this that's worth playing because you can control how much damage each creature is going to take, most Demons including Rakdos have high toughness. You could cut a few of the lesser Demons.

Master of the Feast is really bad card in multiplayer Commander because only your opponents draw. Awaken the Sky Tyrant, Wretched Confluence and Seal of the Guildpact are subpar for the mana costs.


In my last comment I recommended adding a lot of loot effects for draw. Loot is excellent with Blood Speaker and Speaker is a good reason to play Demon tribal since it's a tribal tutor that can be repeatable, return to your hand from your graveyard. Rakdos can reduce Speaker's mana cost to only 1 mana, making it a mana efficient way to repeatedly tutor for Demons.

Loot can be an enabler for reanimation and recursion which are helpful effects to have with Demons. Reanimation is a way to get Demons onto the battlefield without having to cast them, a backup for when Rakdos is disrupted. Recursion is getting Demons back into your hand or casting them from your graveyard. Patriarch's Bidding can reanimate all Demons in your graveyard. Persist and Exhume can reanimate for only two mana.

Chainer, Nightmare Adept has interaction with looting, getting Demons into your graveyard to cast them using Rakdos mana cost reduction. If you discard a Demon using Chainer's ability you can cast that same Demon giving it haste to attack. Rakdos also gains haste from Chainer when he's cast from the Command Zone. Any creature you reanimate gains haste from Chainer.

Chainer has excellent interaction with creatures who can sac themselves for value such as Magus of the Wheel and Doomed Necromancer. With Chainer these creatures gain haste when cast from your graveyard allowing them to tap and activate their abilities right away. Doomed Necromancer can reanimate even at instant speed. Chainer is good with Blood Speaker as discard outlet that can keep coming back to your hand.


Some more budget Demons to consider adding:

Some budget land upgrades to consider:

Temple of the False God is not a good land when you have no land ramp. It will not tap for mana until at least turn five and that's if you make all your land drops. Even if playing green and land ramp such as Cultivate I still wouldn't play Temple of the False God, it's just not a good enough land in the early turns of a game.

Quickspell on Compost Pile (Help Wanted)

There is a great 50$ pauper deck from 6 years ago that kind of does a similar thing to mill/discard Ulamog's Crusher and then Exhume it. It uses Gurmag Angler and Hooting Mandrills as a backup. You should check it out: hasty crusher on turn 2.

Since you are not limited by pauper, you could exhume Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hungeror Goryo's Vengeance it on the end of your opponents turn.

If you want to lower the curve, I'd start with cards like Deadbridge Chant and Selective Adaptation. Neither are very good, and the Chant has never performed for me like I wanted it to. Running two mana ramp is a good way to go, too, but it tends to get pricier. Three Visits, Rampant Growth, and Nature's Lore are good two mana ramp cards. Your next alternative is to sub in some cheaper CMC reanimation spells, like Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead, Necromancy (pricy), Reanimate (pricy), Stitch Together (situational, but probably manageable in this deck), and Exhume.

Something to keep in mind, though, about your curve, is that although it's floating around 4, you aren't planning on casting quite a few of the spells in the deck. So your decks CMC is inflated, so to speak. Just bear that in mind.

A little jank, but seems very fun! If I could make a few recommendations, at would be to remove Strategic Planning for the much better Impulse and 1 Mountain for an Ash Barrens. I know that Strategic Planning dumps the cards in your graveyard, however i feel removing Exhume and those other yard-matters cards can open yourself up to great draw spells like Preordain, Brainstorm, and Ponder. I guarentee this will make your deck way more consistent. But again, this is just my two cents.

Stardragon on An Actual Ninja Phoenix Deck

7 months ago

Since you choose Desecrated Tomb and Tormod, the Desecrator why not Anax, Hardened in the Forge so you get a 1/1 bat, a 2/2 zombie and a 2/2 satyr when a creature dies or returns form the graveyard?

Some extra on death mileage particularly with your altar (I would consider Ashnod's Altar as well)- Pitiless Plunderer for more mana, Species Specialist or Dark Prophecy for card draw, Zulaport Cutthroat, Blood Artist or Bastion of Remembrance for some life gain/drain action or Butcher of Malakir and Dictate of Erebos so when you lose a creature they do too

I saw you have some recursion why not consider Return from Extinction and it's upgraded form Raise the Draugr? I would cut Exhume for one of these they cost the same and can bring back two phoenixes or ninjas and doesn't have the downside of letting your opponent bring a card back. and they cost less though they don't put on to battlefield so that may not be to your liking

Extra board wipes that won't hit your phoenixes (though will hit your ninjas) are Magmaquake, Earthquake, Faultline and Subterranean Tremors

More damage- Berserkers' Onslaught, Wound Reflection, Gratuitous Violence

Harder to block Phoenixes so you can ninjutsu even easier- Goblin War Drums, Intimidate, Cover of Darkness

Maybe Heartless Summoning-to make your commander cheaper to cast in the graveyard (the only time you should cast this from your command zone is the first time, and anytime is get's exiled as this way you can ignore the commander tax as much as possible)

And don't forget Fervor so all your birds are hasty and can attack as so as they on the field so you ninjutsu even faster

About the Scroll of Avacyn vs Potion of Healing thing, there is a reason beyond "I like Potion better." The reason is that one of the decks I go up against frequently is the BR Eldrazi reanimation deck I mentioned in the description. The point of that deck is to Exhume back Ulamog's Crusher, and swing with Annihilator 2 on turn 3-4 (it can swing with Ulamog's Crusher on turn 1, given the perfect hand). The reason I prefer Potion over Scroll is because I want something that can draw me cards, AND act as Annihilator fodder.

I am not saying this because of unhealthy criticism, on the contrary, I am very grateful for the suggestions! I am simply saying this because I did have a better reason other than "Potion seems neat."

Thank you, have a good day, and if you can help me with this deck, refer to the description of the deck.
