Leyline of Sanctity

Enchantment

If Leyline of Sanctity is in your opening hand, you may begin the game with it on the battlefield.

You have hexproof. (You can't be the target of spells or abilities your opponents control.)

ElPared, I didn't really think of Crucible of Worlds, but I like my other 3 drops a little better. Usually the three lands from Life from the Loam are more than enough to close things out. I'll play around with crucible a bit, but my initial thought is to stick with Life from the Loam.

Soul Foundry seems a little expensive, but Sakura-Tribe Elder has some potential. I think the tradeoff for something like Explore or Growth Spiral is having a blocker at the expense of the cantrip. Which one is better might just depend on meta, but I'm definitely going to try out Sakura-Tribe Elder and see how it goes!

IHATENAMES, my usual Leyline of Sanctity plan is to remove it with Broken Bond or Force of Vigor from the board, or go wide/big with Scute Swarm or Tireless Tracker. That said, I really like the possibility of having other options as well. I can even see running a one-of Hall of Storm Giants in the main. Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath is probably more of a sideboard card, but I think it would be pretty useful for changing the angle of the deck so it's not as all-or-nothing.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Is sideboarding into Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath or creature lands like Hall of Storm Giants and self mill to find them a reasonable plan? I figure its some sort of additional plan b for Leyline of Sanctity? Yes I know Ruin Crab doesn't target but it makes your other crab worse.

I am no expert but using scapeshift with tons of crabs sounds like a good time. Keep it up.

Delphen7 its worth mentioning Persist needs a non-legendary target, so about half of your reanimation suggestions aren’t really practical.

I think from my own time playing reanimator Leyline of Sanctity is fine. Discard can really hurt as it’ll generally strip away any options the deck has to actually reanimate stuff. But it is definately a meta call.

The thing I really like about Magic_Aids list here is him not using Teferi, Time Raveler. I’ve been using that card in my list for a long time, but oftentimes it feels clunky. Its nice to see a list doing alright without it.

Damping Sphere? It also doesn't hose your cards during your opponent's turn so your Veil of Summer will still be 1 green and not 3 colorless and a green. Leyline of Sanctity? Pithing Needle? Naturalize, Nature's Claim,or Back to Nature,Disenchant, maybe some Oblivion Ringlike effects. Cut Rest in Peace unless your meta is graveyard heavy. Why are you running Secure the Wastes in the sideboard?

Balaam__ I agree about building towards a goal that is non-traditional:

Building to win is so Spike, and I wanna win like Timmy or Johnny. I personally think this deck is more Johnny because at first glance.. you might miss some of these key interactions!

I.e.: things like how Zombie Infestation makes bodies that can be tossed for Scourge of Nel Toth, and then replenish your hand with Shadow of the Grave.

Boneyard Scourge is a cool card, but admittedly it isn't eternal format legal... that doesn't mean I won't use his happy ass anyways!

As far as "going second" as a precedent, I would think things like Serum Powder could help do a thing.. I even really like the idea of "going second" but having a strong "turn zero" presence to throw off your opponents (things like the Leylines or Chancellors).

Unfortunately, in competitive settings we both know it's gonna be typical "lame"/boring stuff like:

You splashed blue:

Or you splashed white:

Or, my personal favorite, if you splash green, you can have access to all my favorite removal, Graveyard staples, etc.:

And I wouldn't leave feedback about "How to" without covering the obvious ones, or at least some cards that immediately cross my mind for improvements:

There is a piece of my heart that wishes older Zombies had a more dangerous presence for this, like (I think) Lord of the Undead or Undead Warchief. Even a little slot for Soulless One.

Hell, I've even considered taking this theme to an EDH setting due to a video I saw of Jimmy Wong on Game Nights where he uses Asmoranomardicadaistinaculdacar as a psuedo-reanimator type build. With the inclusion of , I would especially love to use Bladewing the Risen or his newest iteration from Dominaria United. Initially, what I remembered wanting was "Zombies and Zombie Dragons".

And if we're mentioning that new set, Defiler of Flesh makes this blow up too. So many great "The Rot of the Horde" feeling cards that feed a sensation of an overwhelming wave of Undead minions!

Things like Abomination of Llanowar in a build would also be fun.

Really enjoyed our discussion about this and I'm really curious to see if/what kinda spin you would put on it!

the deck is likely viable from this point forward. now you just need to tweak for efficiency and such. when it comes to the sideboard what you should do is identify common decks that you might run into and prepare a response for them in kind. then after you make considerations for decks rank them based on how hard the matchup is for you and prioritize putting in helpful cards against their decks. have a hard time against storm? put in 2 Damping Sphere's. having a really hard time against storm? put in 2 Damping Sphere's and 2 Rule of Law. having a hard time against hand hate in the early game? put in 3 Leyline of Sanctity. it really depends on what you consider the harder matchups and also whatever group of players you usually play against. my store always had an enchantment player, an elemental player, and a bunch of grixis control. so i prioritized my sideboard for the grixis and then the enchant player and then the elemental player. i had little trouble with anything else. but i still put a few things in against decks that i knew i would have a problem with if they ever popped up like tron and storm.

another rule of thumb is that if you need to have the card in the early game then you need to run more of the card. for example, Thoughtseize is only good if you can consistently play it turn 1. that means if you ever run Thoughtseize you always run 4. same is true of Leyline of Sanctity never run less than 3 or else you may find it hard to ever get in your opening hand.
