I've recently added Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker, that you SpecimeN87 for that suggestion, so I don't currently see the need for more redundancy as I've also included Animate Dead and Reanimate.

I had Howling Mine and Font of Mythos to ensure my opponents had cards so I could force them to discard. Reconsidered that and have since removed those two.

I like Grim Haruspex myself, I was just concerned with the forced draw it places on me. Being a creature I suppose I could just sacrifice it if I don't need the cards any more. Consideration and testing to be done.

I bet Evoke cards are really good with Liesa, you already have Grief in there with the discard plan. I'd also recommend Reveillark and Shriekmaw. I'm also a little confused why you added in Font of Mythos into the deck when you are so heavily invested in the discard package. Grim Haruspex would likely be a much better option for you in terms of card draw. I also like Callous Bloodmage

bopple100 on good deck

i would suggest adding more tutors. also get rid of your bad zombies as this is an infinite combo deck and not a zombie tribal deck. zombies is more the subtheme. if you want to go into the zombie tribal deck consider adding more lords like Death Baron and Lord of the Accursed. other than that I would add some more staples in black aristocrats like Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Viscera Seer, Bolas's Citadel, and Dictate of Erebos or Grave Pact. Also just good black cards are Diabolic Intent, Necropotence, Carrion Feeder, Deadly Rollick, Grim Haruspex, Grim Tutor, Bastion of Remembrance, Butcher of Malakir, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, Imperial Seal, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, and Decree of Pain. also Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion is a good combo. looks like a good idea but i would get rid of all those 1-2 mana zombies that have no effect of the game. enjoy the deck!

Necrosis24 on asmoranomardicadaistinaculdacar or chainer, nightmare adept?? …

For Chainer, Nightmare Adept, looting is your friend its sorta like having a limited second hand. Of course you can use his ability only once a turn so I think having a good amount of recursion like Apprentice Necromancer is good. Pair it with cards like Grim Haruspex you can refill your hand to discard more cards. So I would build it as a looting deck focused on recuring good stuff.

  1. Discard and cast Apprentice Necromancer using Chainer, Nightmare Adept’s ability.
  2. Sacrifice Apprentice Necromancer bring back a creature from your graveyard such as Archfiend of Despair swing and sacrifice it at your end step.
  3. With Grim Haruspex in play you will draw a card which you can discard to Chainer, Nightmare Adept to recast Apprentice Necromancer next turn.

Using madness cards can help you retain some more value as well.

Another fun thing you could do is target Phyrexian Delver with Apprentice Necromancer and you can recur another target creature permanently. Keep in mind you can do this on other people’s turns as well so with enough mana you could recur 3-4 creatures a round but keep in mind Phyrexian Delver does drain your life.

You can also utilize sac outlets if you do use nonpermanent recursion. So Viscera Seer, Altar of Dementia, Goblin Bombardment, etc.

Encore could also fit in Rakshasa Debaser.

Just try not to include too many different things or the deck becomes too janky. Tho we all love our jank.

Other Note: Rakdos morph, I Love It!!!
Rakdos, Lord of Riots + Experimental Frenzy could play like Animar, Soul of Elements except you get access to cards like Gift of Doom, Grim Haruspex, Soul Collector
digging deep with Necropotence then casting Final Fortune could be game ending
let me know how this deck goes
p.s. nether of these cards would benefit you lens only effects permanents which means only cards already on the field, Mycosynth Lattice & Chromatic Orrery would be better options

Hi wallisface!

Thanks for your suggestions, I really appreciated them.

They gave me the opportunity to reflect on another possibility: what do you think about adding Grim Haruspex and creatures with mana cost (Stonecoil Serpent and Chamber Sentry)?

Let me know

Spawning Pit is always a great, cheap sac outlet, as is Skullclamp. Ashnod's Altar is a little more expensive, but very powerful. Haunted Dead is a way to get multiple Sefris triggers per round. Finally, Grim Haruspex?

Yeah you're right it does feel hard figuring out what is worthwhile cutting. Perhaps it's better as a sideboard option against decks that are liable to be taking stuff from your hand? Not sure. Perhaps it also replaces a few copies of Grim Haruspex, which realistically probably dies to removal in a lot of matchups?

Without having played the deck, i'm not sure how much it's needed as well... so maybe it has no home here. My main reason for suggesting it was that it looks like it could be hard to assemble the pieces you need - though this might not be the case
