Thanks GizmoTurtulez! I thought about doing Haakon, Stromgald Scourge but I couldn't find a good way to incorporate it into the deck without basing it around reanimator. I thought about Liliana's Standard Bearer but I find that more of the opponents creatures are supposed to die and not mine. I also don't have much mana after a board wipe usually. I was thinking of re-doing the deck with Gisa, Glorious Resurrector and decay for double death triggers, in which Liliana's Standard Bearer would be great. I probably will.

Haakon, Stromgald Scourge andNameless Inversion is one of my favorite synergies so props to Saccox. Didn't know about Frogtosser Banneret either, pretty fun stuff.

Really nice, Orzhov Knight is lowkey one of my top favorite tribals. Good to see my boy Haakon, Stromgald Scourge getting some work. By the way, his ability allows you to play things like Crib Swap and Nameless Inversion from the graveyard.

I agree that the Minotaur tribe... is rather lackluster and could use some assistance. As such, I don't think it's wrong that sacrificing any creature - including tokens - would be enough of a ticket to cast the Minotaur. Otherwise you're trading one nontoken for another nontoken and paying the cost for both. True Gravecrawler makes it a lot more tolerable, but I don't think it needs to be so complicated.

Take Haakon, Stromgald Scourge as a reference. He ain't much worth as a Commander that's true but you cast an Entomb or discard him from hand and you're good to play Knight tribal forever - or until someone exiles him or your graveyard, then you cry.

Haakon is just difficult to line up and his conditions and colors makes him less than ideal for the Commander post. However the Knight tribe is generally stronger and more established, whereas the Minotaurs needs some help and Molgrath you suggest costs 5 MV.


Alternatively you could include some additional benefit to reanimating, like reducing costs equal to the sacrificed creature's costs or have the entering or sacrificed creature deal damage to any target or something.

It doesn't feel that powerful nor exciting to cast a Felhide Brawler and then sacrifice it for the option to cast a Minotaur creature card from your graveyard that gains menace and zombie tribal benefits.

I mean look at Muldrotha, the Gravetide. I would say spice this one up! You have room to stuff in some more goodies.

This feels like the old Haakon, Stromgald Scourge combo lists that tried to abuse Basal Sliver and Skeletal Changeling.

There are definitely other combo lines that should play nice with this - Ashes of the Fallen would let you combo with Wild Cantor or Myr Moonvessel, Skirk Prospector/Universal Automaton would offer a second combo line for non-bombardment.

Enduring Renewal. I love the card, It is jank. The 'reveal your hand' is a massive drawback. Similarly, Kethis, the Hidden Hand felt close to working for similar but didn't quite.

Norin, the Apocalyptic

Legendary Planeswalker - Norin

Whenever Norin, the Apocalyptic becomes the target of a spell, ability, or is attacked, exile Norin, the Apocalyptic. Return it to the battlefield under its owner's control at the beginning of the next end step.

+1: Goad target creature.

-6: Exile all permanents. Exile all cards from all hands and graveyards. Each player's life total becomes 1.


Yeah, that's what Norin was wary of! Truly an accurate Bad Feeling! Norin the Wary is so fun! Worldfire is so scary it's banned!

I'd like to see a weird legend as a planeswalker, like Haakon, Stromgald Scourge
