Sure thing Benjimain! I think you picked a great partner pair. They offer the late-game resilence that Orzhov (WB) decks are known for while also enabling big combat damage which is rare in WB.

Here are some other swaps I would make:

Quag Sickness -> Plaguecrafter
Underworld Dreams -> Bitterblossom
Forever Young -> Black Market
Pick the Brain -> Grand Crescendo
Artificer's Hex -> Lightning Coils
Duress -> Rootborn Defenses
Pit Keeper -> Captain's Claws
Triad of Fates -> Haunted Library
Deathpact Angel -> Mardu Strike Leader
Mark of the Vampire -> Blight Mound
Confront the Assault -> Veteran Soldier
Primevals' Glorious Rebirth -> Spirit Bonds
Soul Salvage -> Militia's Pride
Alchemist's Gift -> Oketra's Monument
Lash of Thorns -> Wand of Orcus
Village Rites -> Grim Haruspex

RylandL Whats the point of Generous Patron and Grim Haruspex for drawn combo? Put a +1/+1 Counter on enemy creature with ghave,and draw for that ?

@ thefiresoflurve - I do like the Grim Haruspex idea, I think I would try and find a slot for it that keeps Morbid Opportunist in the deck as Morbid doesn't care if it's your creature or not while Grim can trigger multiple times per turn. I don't have a lot of creatures I'm killing constantly on myside, but the benefit could be there.

I did have an issue with high tax the other day, Pitiless Plunderer could find a home very soon for some extra ramp.

Nice build! I really like the flavor in it. Wdyt of Grim Haruspex in place of Morbid Opportunist?

Also, March of the Machines here is clever; I love it. Pitiless Plunderer could possibly be a good combo substitute for your commander in the event taxes get too high to pay, plus some extra ramp outside the combo.

I have an Elenda deck as well! I would highly recommend Massacre Girl. As long as Elenda has at least 1 counter on her already, and assuming there's other small creatures out, Massacre Girl will kill everything but Elenda and herself, and Elenda will witness every death and love every second of it. Personally, I found the creatures that did single target damage on creature death (Blood Artist and Falkenrath Noble, namely) to be expendable. Looks like you've got almost all the important hitters that ding everyone else when your creatures die (Zulaport Cutthroat, Cruel Celebrant, and Bastion of Remembrance) and that is usually enough. Although you are missing Vindictive Vampire. I'd also recommend Grim Haruspex for card draw, although tokens dying don't trigger it. Feel free to check out my list here! Dusk Rose Parade

thanks a ton. Underrealm Lich and Acidic Slime are on my to add list already. and for Blightstep Pathway  Flip i was just saying the other day i need to do some land work on this deck to make it run more efficiently so thank for pointing out to change to Darkbore Pathway  Flip.

i had never heard of Blood Artist or Grim Haruspex but ill make sure i grab them and find a way to work them in same with Krosan Grip and Indrik Stomphowler.

Good deck all around. I do have a couple of suggestions based on my long history with Meren.

1- Replace Blightstep Pathway  Flip with Darkbore Pathway  Flip. I'm assuming that's what you meant to enter?

2- Underrealm Lich is super underplayed in these reanimation-based decks, but it's beyond useful. It fills up your graveyard and protects you from milling out.

3- Blood Artist is pretty much a must-have for any aristocrats deck.

4- Grim Haruspex is incredible for card advantage.

5- Cards like Acidic Slime, Krosan Grip, and Indrik Stomphowler as most graveyard-hate cards are artifacts and enchantments and you'll want to be able to shut those cards down whenever you can (think Tormod's Crypt, Rest in Peace, Leyline of the Void, Relic of Progenitus, etc). You have some, but you could have more.

I like the deck themes you're working with; this looks pretty different from my build but I think this could help improve your power level a bit.

Just had a thought, perhaps Grim Haruspex and Midnight Reaper could do work in here? They just need your creatures to die, a thing you're trying to do, and both are budget.
