The deck was really neat! You definitely struggled against Tron though.

I'm not sure how good Leyline of Hexproof is, as it was never brought in, you can out race burn, and discard mostly helps your ultimate plan, plus Grief (If it stays in) shuts down opponents' options. Maybe a card for tron would help that matchup? Haven't followed reanimator lists too closely though so not sure on that one.

Following your thoughts on swapping out the elementals for other targets, these are all things that came to mind:

  • Terrastadons, as that card was beastly against everything.
  • Ashen Rider (Removes anything, including tron pieces)
  • Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur (Dies to bolt, but lets you dump cards/find reanimate spells really quickly and forces opponents to deal with it or lose)
  • Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger (Nasty critter that ends games if its allowed to attack)
  • Iona, Shield of Emeria (Shuts off mono colored strategies, and is annoying against even 2/3 color decks)
  • Sundering Titan (The more colors the more backbreaking)
  • Griselbrand (With some tweaking maybe its a comboey list? Nasty critter on its own too)

As for Temporary Lockdown, it definitively has legs in modern. It was super sweet against everything you went against, and there are many other tier decks it would hurt

Enter the Infinite. I can't imagine my Woah, where did THAT come from??? Jodah deck without it. Other suggestions are Worst Fears, Expropriate, Chromatic Orrery, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Bringer of the Black Dawn, and Rhystic Study, to name a few.

You can check out my deck for more ideas, although I'm working on a budget so you have more freedom than I do in terms of cards you can add.

Good luck =)

I think Urabrask the Hidden was a bit of a stumble that also occurred with Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, and Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger.

Namely, Wizards designed the first ability, then went "what's the opposite?" and then put it on the card regardless of if that ability was in the color pie.

Plus, it's my personal opinion that the more expensive a spell is, the more it can diverge from the color pie. To an extent, obviously.

Triton: Thank you for the suggestions! I'm absolutely going to need to find Tortured Existence as I like that option significantly more than Phyrexian Reclamation for this deck. Much more on theme.

I thought about Anje Falkenrath, but I don't believe there is quite enough madness to justify it. Could be wrong though.

Monastery Siege is an interesting idea that I haven't considered, but one goal I had was to keep the enchantments and artifacts to a minimum since there is no reasonable way to recur them.

Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur is 100% an inclusion for the deck, but I don't have one and it's expensive. Also very mean like you said. Still on the radar regardless though.

That reanimation package is all great options as well, but I don't currently have any of them. Might have to keep an eye out to see if I can pick them up sometime though.

Love the deck! It's refreshing seeing a Kess deck that isn't just a sweaty spell slinger deck! :p

I got a couple really cool suggestions for you as well!

Tortured Existence: I absolutely love this card in my Mimeo deck, and I think your deck can abuse it even more!

Anje Falkenrath: Very good card in a Madness-heavy deck

Monastery Siege: Both modes are super useful, but I'd imagine you'd want the Phyrexian Arena effect more often than not

Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur: If you wanna be mean hehehe

The cheap reanimation spell package: Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead, Reanimate, and Necromancy. They're quite spendy nowadays, but oh-so-good

I noticed that there aren't many mana rocks, I'd definitely recommend the 2-CMC Talismans and Signets if you need them!

Great deck, Waste Not, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and Rite of Replication will fit in pretty good as well.

VensersJournalist on What's a card you thought …

7 months ago

Once upon a time, I had a Kami of the Crescent Moon deck that utilized Psychosis Crawler as a win condition.

I thought that also having Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur would help ensure my victory but I usually never got enough mana or felt comfortable enough casting it, so I ended up selling the card and ultimately scrapping the deck.
