Nirkana Revenant Discussion

Thank you, for taking the time to respond
Squirrel_of_War, the deck tempos till combo. Stalling the game till turns 5-7 would be much easier then stalling the game till turns 7-9 wich would greatly increase my win%. That's why I'm focused on power level.
enpc, this deck does self milling, Crucible of Worlds is the only option in these colors to get lands back with out giving opponents there lands also, plus it being a 3 cmc permanent makes it a reanimate target.
Nirkana Revenant is never hard casted it's a reanimate target. I have actually had games were turn 0 gemstone-exile Rev, pull from eternity, turn 1 reanimate
Apprentice Necromancer was swapped for Priest of Fell Rites & Doomed Necromancer was swapped for Magus of the Will

Before I go on to card swaps, I think that having a measurable "Turn X - Y equates to power level Z" is a bit silly. I get what you're trying to achieve with it, but the concept is very two dimensional when deck building and piloting is is not.
As for actual card changes - if you want to make the deck faster then a more consistent mana base will be step one. Yes, that means fetches. You have stuff like Crucible of Worlds which is midrange tech, yet if the goal was for speed then this contradicts the gameplan.
On top of that, you're not running Demonic Tutor or Diabolic Intent . If we're talking no budget, Imperial Seal is another one worth a slot. Night's Whisper is good card draw too, as is Sign in Blood .
I would also look into cards like Mana Crypt , Mana Vault and Dark Ritual . Cheap ramp effects are your friend. Big mana accelerators like Nirkana Revenant are counter-productive here, they don't help in the early game which is where you're trying to win.

Looks like a fun list! I have a Chainer deck on my profile if you wanna check it out. I've been playing him for a few years now, but I'm still working out some of the pending changes to my list.
Card draw to consider: Night's Whisper is a second sign in blood, and worth running as efficient card draw. Ransack the Lab has also felt really good. Treacherous Blessing has been worth the life loss (almost) every time I play it. Syphon Mind is decent, too. I also am not a fan of Reliquary Tower because usually you want to be discarding down to hand size to drop reanimation targets in the GY. I'd look at Castle Locthwain or basic swamp in its place.
Ramp: Dark Ritual is a classic and probably worth running. Myriad Landscape is slow, but generally has pleased me when I see it. Nirkana Revenant is another source of big B mana. Expensive to cast, but cheap if you are reanimating it. Expedition Map gets you Cabal Coffers or Urborg.
Finally, I'm not sure that Liliana, Untouched by Death is pulling her weight here. Hope that is helpful :)

If you have Ashaya, Soul of the Wild on the field when you activate Beledros' ability, it will untap all of your creatures (that are now mana producers themselves of course) as well.
With Patron of the Orochi , you can gain similar effects, and potentially cheat some of the cost of Patron of the Orochi or sneak them in quick should you have a snake.
Another finisher you could include to take advantage of all your incredible mana production (and shore up your life total should you worry about that) is Exsanguinate .

Hey guys, I just built the deck and I wanted to make sure it wasn't lacking in any one department. I tried adding sufficient ramp and card draw as well as a ton of sac and discard effects. I can also make infinite mana with Magus of the Coffers and Staff of Domination or Umbral Mantle . The deck can also generate a lot of mana with effects like Crypt Ghast and Nirkana Revenant . I feel like I'm light on straight up removal but I'm not sure what to cut but as we know Magic is huge and has a TON of cards. Am I missing any MUST-haves? what changes would you make?
Thanks for the help!

Popped in off reddit.
After that, you just need to tune it to your liking.

I have checked the entire deck and it is really diverse and I have no doubts it probably works well. It seems very well prepared for various challenges. But independently from my first impressions I have to ask you what was your purpose with this deck? I am asking this, because from my point of view, it is a versatile vampire tribal, with most of the black staples - however I can not see the direction where it wants to go. This commander is clearly a volton general, but the deck is full of with non-voltron style cards, however it lacks some other typical voltron cards like Blackblade Reforged , Fireshrieker , Whispersilk Cloak . If you play against only one opponent you may find Hatred , Unspeakable Symbol useful. Have not you experienced speed issues with it? You play on few mana stones, and your main mana sources are bit expensive ( Nirkana Revenant , Caged Sun ) and Doubling Cube starts to provide real advantage if you reached 8+ mana. Nevertheless my ultimate opinion is that it is a good deck, and I would try it out gladly. :-)
