Thanks Fuzzy003 - I did, and even Puresteel Paladin or Strionic Resonator, since this is a deck that likes its Combat/Equipped Triggers... tricky bit is slot replacement. Balancing Aggro, Answers, Ramp & Draw is clutch with just 10 Equips and 5 Tutors to fill in what you need. I'll consider it over Fiend Hunter since he never sticks around & only combos with Kogla, the Titan Ape =D

I love the look of that BW list, I'll definitely look into giving that a shot. Right now across Vic I've ran into a lot of Thoracle decks, burn, RDW, Medium Red, Seeker time walk, Recall control, and general low-curve aggro. What are your thoughts on the best cards for mono white D&T to run into a meta like this -- would you ever consider cards like Porcelain Legionnaire which we can quickly get out on turn 1 fairly easily, or even cards like Fairgrounds Warden over Fiend Hunter so that we can more consistently play our O-Ring creatures? I have found two white to not always be super consistent, especially on the play, and tend to mull pretty aggressively to guarantee two white (sometimes to a great disadvantage, but maybe I'm piloting poorly)

I've also been very curious on your thoughts around Serra the Benevolent and Elspeth, Knight-Errant which are two cards I see a great variety of mono white d&t pilots play extensively across different metas. They seem to be high impact cards that really work well with all of our ways to create two colorless, and I think in a D&T list that wants to go slightly wider these two cards could be powerful inclusions, but I am sure you've already considered that.

Thanks for the BW list! I look forward to trying that out :)

Command zone instead of hand or library is a replacement effect. Command zone when dies or exiled is now an SBA that is checked once, immediately after the event; much like the deathtouch and losing to drawing from an empty library. It is actually this rule change that made it so that Oblivion Ring , Fiend Hunter , et al. will not return a commander that was put into the command zone. The cards now actually do touch exile/graveyard before SBAs are checked. If you still disagree go ahead and provide an explanation with rules citations.

903.9a If a commander is in a graveyard or in exile and that object was put into that zone since the last time state-based actions were checked, its owner may put it into the command zone. This is a state-based action. See rule 704.

903.9b If a commander would be put into its owner’s hand or library from anywhere, its owner may put it into the command zone instead. This replacement effect may apply more than once to the same event. This is an exception to rule 614.5.

I like the list. It has real potential.

I'm not a fan of doomed and null priest unless they are cheating out big creatures - the only big cleric I can think of is Mikaeus, the Unhallowed. Resurrecting multiple other clerics can be done in easier, less disruptable ways.

Many of the most powerful sideboard cards (mainboardable in many metas) are clerics, and that means that with 75 cards including sideboard, something that can really kick butt in a metagame is out there.

The option to ressurect Children of Korlis, Containment Priest, Ethersworn Canonist, Fiend Hunter, Grand Abolisher, Leonin Arbiter, Auriok Champion, Leonin Relic-Warder, Remorseful Cleric, Sanctifier en-Vec, Sin Collector - there are too many great clerics for this not to become something. Even stuff like Orzhov Pontiff and True Believer has seen sideboard play in the kind of creature-led deck it would be.

You have access to all the tools from soul sisters, with Soul Warden also getting Marauding Blight-Priest as another piece. Vizier of Remedies threatens a combo line. Efficient 1 drops means that tools like Orzhov Charm, Ranger-Captain of Eos and Proclamation of Rebirth look a lot better. Order of Whiteclay and oddities like Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip it offer more options than you'd expect, and it only takes one good interaction with them to turn them into powerhouse engines.

All of that before looking at w/b getting the best removal in the game means that some variant of this list will make a dent in a major tournament, once someone figures it out.

Omniscience_is_life on Bounce and Ye Shall Be Healed

I've been wondering about Solitude myself--seems like it isn't doing enough work anywhere. Darn.

You know I love me some good Ixalan cards, but the Gateway definitely seems like it should be removed if you can push through the sadness of that whole ordeal.

As to suggestions: removal could be Giant Killer (repeatable with bounce effects), or potentially Bounty Agent if you can spare the turn it has summoning sickness. Fiend Hunter and Mangara of Corondor can be inordinately good with instant-speed bounce effects, due to some trickiness with their abilities that I'll only explain if you haven't heard of them before ;). Cavalier of Dawn might be feasible with your updated ramp package, you may need to play around with that.

Draw could be Alms Collector ? Or Palace Jailer , for draw and removal, albeit a slightly weak imitation of both?

Hmm, this is strange. As far as I can tell, the endpanel and endaccordion lines are in the code, but it's not showing up in the description. I put the code for the description in a code box if you want to glance over it. Thanks for your help dude!

Hi TheShadowNite!

Love to see more Nethroi deck articles there, I also have a Nethroi EDH deck (NETHROI: EERIE PATH OF DEATH) but I'm still trying to improve it bit by bit. I've played other reanimator decks in the past (being a classic Meren player), and when Ikoria released Nethroi gived me a fresh and awesome legend to work in Abzan, a color combination that I loved but I didn't like previous commander options. My Nethroi deck is a bit more high CMC casual one, with some timmy stompy creatures, just because I already own more powerful decks for more competitive games, but still like to learn how people power up Nethroi. And if you include creatures like Eternal Witness or Skullwinder , you'll be able to loop thoses sorceries without limit.

Love your idea of including the Animate Dead + Leonin Relic-Warder combo. In my deck I play some combos too (like persist creatures + Good-Fortune Unicorn / Luminous Broodmoth and Sun Titan + Angelic Renewal / Fiend Hunter ) but as I also play Animate Dead , I could fit the Relic-warder or change some of my combos for it!

By the way, what do you think about Fauna Shaman and Fiend Artisan ?. Both help fill the graveyard while tutoring any needed creature for each situation. I play them a lot in many graveyard decks.

More ideas:

Lurrus of the Dream-Den your deck has a very low CMC, you'll be able to abuse Lurrus to keep the engine going before you reach Nethroi or late game-ending plays. Eerie Ultimatum I play it just because not always you can play Nethroi, it may ge countered or the mutation host destroyed... but having the Ultimatium as another way of mass reanimate can help and take the opponents unawared. It will also reanimate any permanent: lands, artifacts, enchantments... so powerful. Similar Living Dead: a classic reanimator deck staple, can act as a mass removal / mass reanimator / both... I think it's key.

This is a really cool concept! Changeling Berserker, Hero, and Titan are particularly intriguing with Reaper King. With one of them, 2 other creatures with the same or similar "nesting doll" effect, and Reaper King, you can create a loop where you destroy all your opps' permanents. For example, Changeling Berserker + Mirror Image + Restoration Angel will create such a loop.
