Hey man! Love grave decks and I'm glad people are still excited about them too! Your list looks pretty interesting, and if you wou like here's my advice: 1. I do not know what budget limitations you are under, so I'll sort my advice by price :) 2. I also do not know the mindset of your playgroup, so if anything I suggest seems too rude, unfun, or not accepted in your group, you make the judgement call and could totally just not run it. It's suggestions, not an order :) 3. Under 5$ includes: Blood Pet, Slaughter Pact, Pox, Arbor Elf, Elves of Deep Shadow, Final Parting, Commander's Sphere or Darksteel Ingot, Stitch Together, and Manglehorn. 4. 5-10$ Includes: Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Abrupt Decay, Entomb, Lightning Greaves, and Birthing Pod. 5. >10$ Includes: Grave Pact, Razaketh, the Foulblooded, and Mana Vault 6. The most exspensive commander staple since force of will and the og duals, it's Mana Crypt!! 7. Potential cards you could take out for these in my opinion: Triumph of the Hordes, Blighted Woodland, Catacomb Sifter, Thoughtpicker Witch, Elixir of Immortality, Caustic Tar, Moldervine Reclamation, Swiftfoot Boots, the guildgate, and Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip 8. Again, these are just my suggestions and you may do with them what you will, just thought I'd share because I love this archetype and want to see others enjoy it to their fullest. :)

Fleshbag Marauder, Birthing Pod, and From Beyond are pretty much insta-adds. Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact are very good as well. Personally, I don't like Vraska, Golgari Queen, and would run Liliana, Dreadhorde General instead.

I'm sure a few things on your list include Shock Lands and Coat of Arms, Hardened Scales & Grave Pact.

Otherwise I love the build, definite +1.

Hello Stara,

I think 35 is probably fine, you have thrown in stuff like Burnished Hart so can fetch out some lands if needed.

Honestly, High Market doesn't really pay out in this deck. The couple times I have had it out, it hasnt really mattered. The extra life isn't a big deal, and it seems like i have no shortage of ways to kill creatures. But then, i don't play Dictate of Erebos or Grave Pact, so maybe with those it would make more difference. Same thing with Buried Ruin, I have found my hand is generally pretty full, or my graveyard is full of stuff I can bring back, so end up needing the mana more than the extra creature.

RNR_Gaming, Bloodgift Demon has a higher mana cost than does Phyrexian Arena, Archfiend of Despair has a higher mana cost than does Wound Reflection, and Butcher of Malakir has a higher mana cost than does Grave Pact, but Rhox Faithmender has a lower converted mana cost than does Boon Reflection, but that may be because BR's mana cost is (in my mind) too high for its effect.

Mj3913 That's true. My concern there would be that it might feel more like a faerie deck if the board state is more often Alela, a few faerie tokens, and a couple of dragons. Building around Ruthless Deathfang, Boneyard Scourge, Scourge of Nel Toth, Keiga, the Tide Star, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Yosei, the Morning Star, Martyr's Bond, Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos, Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, and Phyrexian Tower could be interesting. Turning those tokens into other resources would help it feel more like a dragon deck.

if you're running mono-blank and Dictate of Erebos, why not Grave Pact?

Deck looks pretty sweet. Recommend swapping out Shatter the Sky for Wrath of God. Giving your opponents a card(s) gives them an upside to a board wipe. Would diffidently slot in a Blood Artist and Merciless Eviction, since Athreos still works with exile effects. A Grave Pact effect would be great to add more control over your opponents. This is all to make the deck more competitive but it works fine if your play group is more casual.
