Cool deck. I like your use of creatures that ping the opponents down. However, you may want to consider dropping Mass Hysteria for Fervor as it doesn't benefit your opponents at all.

Pikobyte on Xyris just wants to Make Snakes

Well, then hello neighbor. I’m from Germany so I’m familiar with € prices. 15 per Card is actually really decent and brings major improvements. I’ll list the prices assuming you use cardmarket too.

Purphoros, God of the Forge(10-12€), packs a great punch with your token generation and is also good in a lot of other decks if you retire Xyris one day. So it’s one of the more expensive ones but well worth it.

Impact Tremors(1,40€), little brother of purphoros, but still does massive work.

Beastmaster Ascension(3,70€) and Shared Animosity(2,30€) greatly empower your token army. Mass Hysteria and Fervor(both around 2€) gives your token army haste so you can swing right after a wheel or mass draw.

Skullclamp(4€) is a really nice draw card with tokens, so you never run out of gas.

Xenagos, the Reveler(4€) and Battle Hymn(50 cent) provide you with a ton of mana for some big and explosive turns.

Wheels do obviously well in Xyris. Time Reversal(2€) and Molten Psyche(1,5€) are good and cheap options to add.

I could go on with more suggestions but I think that’s enough for the first time. Maybe take a look at my primer first, I bet you finds lots of other new toys there and after that I can still help you to improve. Otherwise the list now will get too long I guess

Last_Laugh on Narset Says "My Turn" *Primer*

Ok, here because of you Cyclonic Rift vs. Omniscience post. Now, first off, why no extra combat spells?

Now, on to suggestions. I'll try to break it down by category and keep things budget friendly.

Ramp: Run LOTS more. Pentad Prism is the only 2 drop mana rock that'll net +2 different colored mana in the same turn (albeit, once). Fellwar Stone , Worn Powerstone , Coalition Relic , and Basalt Monolith are worth running also. Crystal Vein is handy in a pinch as well.

Haste Enablers : Need for Speed , Mass Hysteria , and/or Ashling's Prerogative are all excellent here.

Defense: Smoke is worth its weight in gold here and 100% deserves a spot.

Topdeck Manipulation: Dream Cache or Scroll Rack which is available in gold border for MUCH MUCH cheaper (as is Grim Monolith ).

Feel free to check out my list for ideas (especially for extra combats). Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

zAzen7977 I would start with 2 Mass Hysteria and see how that feels. The Archon of Cruelty helps offset the life loss from Thoughtseize , but Grief does have a body if you get hit with graveyard hate or can't get your main strategy working. I'm going to go with Thoughtseize for this one.

legendofa and K0rt, I meant to elaborate more:

Do you find that Mass Hysteria obstructs your hand during the mid/late game? That’s why I’m reluctant to run it. I’ve tried running haste enablers in other builds (like Dragon Tempest ) and they seem useful at first, but then I find them to be a hinderance after the early turns.

I am considering sticking in a couple Grief to offset Thoughtseize , to minimize life-loss. Plus it may come in handy to reanimate later. But I don’t have room for Ephemerate , so I don’t know if Grief is worth it without the combo.

All this discarding goes really well with Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger . I’ve been trying to make room for a couple, but I don’t know if Kroxa is a “Non-bo” in this build, since I need to be able to exile the cards in my graveyard to pay for its escape cost, but I also need creatures in my graveyard to reanimate.

I’d like to hear your thoughts!

legendofa and K0rt, thank you for your suggestions! I like both of your respective Reanimator variations.

Mass Hysteria is an interesting option, I will test it out to see how I like it.

Damn is a definite inclusion. Thrilling Discovery is an amazing way to dig through the deck while simultaneously gaining life and discarding cards. I think it’s worth running Red just for that, but Wear / Tear and the boost to Prismatic Ending is a plus. Collective Brutality and Bone Shards discard cards, but this deck desperately needs more card draw that Discovery provides. Esper is a good solution for this card-draw problem and I like Gifts Ungiven , but I personally favor a lean mana base of 21-22 lands, and Gifts is expensive mana-wise to cast consistently with this lean mana base. But it boils down to personal preference.

My main concern is that this deck lacks reactiveness due to the very few Instants I am running. I’m considering making more room for Fatal Push and/or Path to Exile to address this.

I've tested a similar deck (that I really should go back to and run some more), and I recommend Mass Hysteria . If you cast it at the right time, it's easy to follow up with Priest of Fell Rites into Archon of Cruelty into attacking with minimal risk. If you have the money, Grief is another option.

My deck is Modern Reanimator, second draft, if you want to take a look and get thoughts or offer suggestions.

WhiteLippedWizard333 on Wheely Snakes

Pikobyte I'm going to my LGS today to pick up Xenagos, the Reveler, Minds Aglow, Mass Hysteria, Guardian Augmenter, Whirlpool Warrior, and Spellskite. I think all of these are going to be great additions to this deck for the time being until I can find another Phyrexian Altar to slot in. I have one in Resurrection Insurrection but can't justify pulling out to put into Wheely Snakes just yet, I'd like to playtest with it first. Xenagos will replace Fevered Visions. I feel like the mana advantage that Xenagos will provide outweighs the extra card draw and 2 damage. I rarely play Fevered Visions anyway, I usually get it later in a game and have no need for the forced card draw since I'm usually wheeling by t4 t5 or t6. Minds Aglow will replace Prosperity, because exactly what you said in a previous comment. Mass Hysteria will replace Temur Ascendancy. It's easier to cast, and is the same haste enabler. I only have 4 creatures that would even trigger the 2nd ability of Temur Ascendancy so its gotta go! Guardian Augmenter and Spellskite will replace Niv-Mizzet, Parun and Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind. The Niv-Mizzets are hard to cast so I find more often than not, I don't cast them because I have a better option in hand that isn't going to cost nearly as much to cast. They are great when they are on the field, but I feel like protection and +2/+2 for Xyris is going to benefit me more often than the Nivs would. Lastly, I think Whirlpool Warrior is going to replace either Psychosis Crawler or Tribute to the Wild. Both are good in their own right. Psychosis crawler can be massive after a wheel or 2 and can put down some serious damage and Tribute to the wild is just fun, especially if an opponent's only artifact or enchantment is a combo or deck engine piece. Thats going to be the hardest cut decision on this round. Thank you again for your suggestions!
