Adding in because it dawned on me after the fact: If you wanted to further trim your CMC, replace Juniper Order Ranger with Good-Fortune Unicorn. Not as good as Juniper Order Ranger as it doesn't place a +1/+1 counter on itself, but it does still place a counter on the ETB'ing creature for two less mana.

Managorger Hydra and Knight of Autumn are both really strong. Avenger of Zendikar can get ridiculous really quickly. You should also look at including more spot removal, like Nature's Claim, Beast Within, and Generous Gift. Tutors like Chord of Calling, Worldly Tutor, Eladamri's Call, and Green Sun's Zenith can help add in redundancy.

Also, I'd advise replacing the taplands (lands that ETB tapped) in your landbase. These slow you down a lot. Things like Brushland, Bountiful Promenade, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, and maybe even sometimes Razorverge Thicket can be helpful. Also, fetches like Windswept Heath, Arid Mesa, Misty Rainforest, and Prismatic Vista can also speed you up tremendously because they filter lands from your deck, meaning you're more likely to draw a card that you can play instead of a land - albeit playing fetches like the ones I've listed can get rather expensive $$$ wise very quickly.

Basri's Solidarity, Cathars' Crusade, Scurry Oak, Good-Fortune Unicorn and the new Scepter of Celebration might be worth checking out. Dunno if these help to speed up the deck but they're at least worth looking at.

It depends on the details of the anthem. Something like Gaea's Anthem that gives a flat bonus would allow you to draw a card off Garruk's Uprising; the creature enters as a 4/4. I assume this is the situation in your question.

On the other hand, something like Good-Fortune Unicorn would not let you draw a card, since G's Uprising sees a 3/3 enter and get modified once it's already present.

Looking pretty solid so far! I suggest Animation Module with the Basri's Lieutenant , Good-Fortune Unicorn (Dreadhorde Invasion, Master Biomancer... ) package.

Also Rishkar, Peema Renegade is a more reliable Katilda, Dawnhart Prime in my opinion.

Perhaps my take on reyhan holds some inspiration. It also has a written primer about the cards I mentioned.

Few Groupings / General Notes

Viscera Seer / Carrion Feeder / Cartel Aristocrat / Glittering Wish

ANTI -1/-1
Vizier of Remedies / Melira, Sylvok Outcast / Good-Fortune Unicorn (doesn't work with Devoted Druid) / Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit (doesn't work with Devoted Druid) / Glittering Wish

-1/-1 Win-Con (don't work with Vizier of Remedies / Melira, Sylvok Outcast)
Obelisk Spider / Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons / Glittering Wish

Lifegain Win-Con
Blood Artist / Cruel Celebrant / Dina, Soul Steeper / Glittering Wish

Mana Win-Con
Rhonas the Indomitable / Lair of the Hydra / Walking Ballista / Glittering Wish

Solo Combo Pieces
Kitchen Finks all-star
Devoted Druid all-star
Spike Feeder
Heliod, Sun-Crowned decent
Saffi Eriksdotter
Renegade Rallier also can ramp


  • Multiple legendaries are bad
  • Multiples of any grouping is bad
  • Kitchen Finks is good in multiples (good value)
  • Devoted Druid is decent in multiples (ramp)
  • If a card is multicolored, running 3 or less copies main lets you run +4 virtual copies for

Key Combos

Math to follow, just had to organize what I was going to be calculating for first.

Maybe keep the Vizier of Remedies instead actually, since they are probably better than Good-Fortune Unicorn in the main.

Also, Obelisk Spider or Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons are pretty interchangeable, depending on if you want the lifegain or deathtouch blockers. I like the wither/reach blocker, but deathtouch blockers are pretty deadly too. Maybe Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons main then Obelisk Spider as sideboard option.

I'm just going to ramble here, but probably some decent ideas to consider.

Bretagard Stronghold could be a thought for re-using persist triggers or just pumping creatures. Hex Parasite is an interesting idea with Kitchen Finks or maybe even Devoted Druid that just might be abusable (not quite infinite).

Cruel Celebrant is essentially a Blood Artist that doesn't target and is wishable. It's comparable to Dina, Soul Steeper except it doesn't work with the Spike Feeder + Heliod, Sun-Crowned combo but does work for Saffi Eriksdotter + Renegade Rallier. Since the second group is all multicolored, you could probably change some things around to allow for wishing for more game enders, and potentially freeing up some redundant slots while you are at it.

Obelisk Spider seems like it would work with Good-Fortune Unicorn and persist triggers etc. so it may be worth shuffling some cards around there. Also, now that I think about it, you could have Cauldron Haze as a persist set up giving you a nice protection option / potential sac outlet. You can also use Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons to make lots of tokens with triggers instead of going for life (probably not as ideal).

Varolz, the Scar-Striped might be a more versatile sacrifice outlet than Cartel Aristocrat. The scavenge synergizes nicely with persist, allowing some interesting plays. Unfortunately, you don't really have any cheaply costed overpowered creatures, so you miss some opportunities with Devoted Druid and mana.

So I'm thinking something like:
-1 Spike Feeder - only really works with Heliod, Sun-Crowned who combos with other cards like Kitchen Finks
-2 Vizier of Remedies
+2 Good-Fortune Unicorn
+1 Obelisk Spider
+1 Bretagard Stronghold
-1 Indatha Triome or Forest

-1 Dina, Soul Steeper
-1 Dromoka's Command
-1 Quillspike
+1 Cruel Celebrant
+1 Obelisk Spider or Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons
+1 Cauldron Haze

You could also concentrate more on certain infinite combos instead of being spread as much, but there's downsides to that as well.

Just came across the idea of introducing a little bit of dying-triggers/resurrection stuff while brewing my Reyhan/Ishai Deck when I stumbled across this decklist. I was thinking to build my deck more with bigass dying-triggers like Chasm Skulker , Ukkima, Stalking Shadow or even Dying Wish while bringing them back from graveyard or avoid them landing there. But I have to say, the Aristocrat-Style of your deck, generating lots of "little" values, is looking super fun!

Have your considered Cauldron of Souls for your list? While in a +1/+1-Deck the -1/-1-Counters can be easily balanced to re-use it again with smth like Good-Fortune Unicorn , it provides you with a lot of fun interactions, especially because of the fact that the chosen creatures don't lose the Persist-Ability until end of turn even if they hit the graveyard. Next to that it allowes you to withstand them nasty boardwipes. With the sacrifice outlets and counter distributors your deck provides I think it would be a good addition to your list!
