@bushido_man96: So after all hell broke loose for 4 cards:

Urza's Ruinous Blast

Final Parting

Jarad's Orders

Karador, Ghost Chieftain

But what to cut after that?

???

???

???

???

I've only 2 ideas for cuts:

Utter End : We have Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim ; & everything about her; CMC & Abilities are cheaper than even Utter End .

Day of Destiny / Heroes' Podium : I prefer the latter of the two, but I'd your thoughts...

So we got two ideas for cuts:

  1. Utter End

  2. Day of Destiny

  3. ???

  4. ???

Any ideas? I'm literally working on multiple decks at one time... DX

Take two of trying to bring this corpse back to life...

What you wanted me to add:

Urza's Ruinous Blast

Final Parting

Jarad's Orders

Karador, Ghost Chieftain

Which means 4 cards to cut:

???

???

???

???

I wonder if anyone has any ideas? I have some:

Utter End : We have Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim ; & everything about her; CMC & Abilities are cheaper than even Utter End .

Day of Destiny / Heroes' Podium : I prefer the latter of the two, but I'd your thoughts...

& that's all I got. Any ideas for cuts? I'd recommend Day of Destiny though. I'll be waiting... :)

Update: Now I have to cut 4 for the 100 card Mark. If you didn't pay attention, this was what one suggested:

Urza's Ruinous Blast (The initial LAST CARD to find room.)

Final Parting (Tutoring for a Creature; most likely a Legend whild Dumping another in the Yard actually seems pretty good...)

Jarad's Orders : (See Final Parting.)

Karador, Ghost Chieftain : (Another Legend that recurs like a BEAST. It shouldn't be hard at all to even Yard 5 Creatures before casting this for cheap. But what about the other Creatures he recurs? Do you still have to pay the Casting Costs?)

So, I leave it to you guys to decide my fate for me; After all: Never leave Destiny to Chance... Or Fate. I dunno if the latter can apply or not...

I think Karador, Ghost Chieftain is definitely up there with Meren of Clan Nel Toth . I'm saying this as a Meren player. Her ability is obviously Superior but access to white and cost reduction in the command zone is nothing to shrug at. Awesome list though! Speaking of reanimation generals, I wonder where Kethis, the Hidden Hand is going to end up.

I'd keep Meren of Clan Nel Toth if recursion is a theme here. Karador, Ghost Chieftain might be good to slide in for that theme, too. They are too good for it. If you're looking to stay on the legendary theme, Planar Portal is legendary tutoring.

You should have about 10 ramps spells. Birds of Paradise is good, and so is Azuza, Lost but Seeking (especially for fixing). The rest I think you're good on. Instead of Demonic Tutor , you could run Final Parting or Jarad's Orders (or both), because they both get a card to your hand and a card to your graveyard to recur.

Neat deck idea. Seems like Awakening and Wilderness Reclamation could be nice additions to this list. Maybe something like Turnabout for the instant speed shenanigans!

Seedborn Muse as well, but she's a little pricier ($5-6 USD).

Seems like running all 5 of the elemental Force creatures would be fun and flavorful too.

Some back up reanimation might be worth considering as well. Victimize and Eldritch Evolution are solid options.

Karador, Ghost Chieftain , Chainer, Nightmare Adept and Nezumi Graverobber maybe too.

First off add Fetch lands like Arid Mesa , the shock lands like Blood Crypt , and the check lands like Clifftop Retreat . Second add cards like Sidisi, Brood Tyrant , Izoni, Thousand-Eyed and especially Meren of Clan Nel Toth . Karador, Ghost Chieftain would be nice too. There are a lot more like that you should add, most of which are on EDHREC, the graveyard theme. (https://edhrec.com/themes/graveyard) The best place on this site for great cards would be in high synergy cards, located if you scroll down on the link above. Third, add some more ramp, like Kodama's Reach , Cultivate , or even Explore . But most of all ADD Sol Ring . ITS THE BEST CARD IN COMMANDER. LITERALLY. You can also find these in the EDHREC ramp theme. (https://edhrec.com/themes/ramp) Fourth and Last, add some synergies. Ramunap Excavator would be amazing, or any card with the "Dredge" ability. Sorry, I don't have time to show you any more individual cards but I recommend you check EDHREc. Its where I built most of my deck!

I can really appreciate another deck that uses a commander that is likely not as strong as one could be, since thras/tymna is likely just stronger than any abzan commander. Karador, Ghost Chieftain was one of my first decks, and I have done my best to make my deck more competitive.

I know you aren't really using hatebears (I am and love having Eldritch Evolution off a hatebear into Academy Rector ) but I honestly think Collector Ouphe is worth a slot. It has really saved my butt vs storm and some of the more artifact heavy decks in my meta.
