chadsansing on Anje Falkenrath combo

I dig it.

Generally, I'd include fewer Madness cards that buff your creatures and include more tutors, reanimation spells, and control pieces to help you buy time to find your combo. Black damage taxes are good, like Dread or No Mercy .

Archfiend of Ifnir over Archfiend of Spite . Maybe some more modular wipes (like Crux of Fate , Decree of Pain , or Kindred Dominance ) + spells like Grim Return or Endless Obedience . Have a way to win with other people's decks after they exile your graveyard or Worldgorger Dragon .

Maybe play Talisman of Dominance over any other rock than your signet. Play a cost reducer or two, as well, like Jet Medallion or Ruby Medallion , or more 2-drop rocks like Charcoal Diamond and Fire Diamond . I'd play the red and black cycle lands for extra draw/dig/loot, as well.

Seb McKinnon, nuff said! Funny story though, I didn’t realize I was drawn specifically to his art until I saw Deathsprout . Then I went through my collection and it turns out I’ve been a fan of his black cards for years, all the way back to Grim Return . Personally, I think this set has some of his best work.

So I'm not sure how fast you want this deck to operate, but the inclusion of Grim Return worked fairly well for me. I was able to return Street Wraith on multiple occasions and I gained board advantage quickly. Grave Strength worked well also, but at Sorcery speed, It's up to you how you want the deck to play. The version of the deck I tested can be found here:
