SufferFromEDHD on Rainbow in the Dark: Haakon Reanimator Combo
4 weeks ago
One with Nothing I see it in your maybe board. If you want to run it for flavor I respect that but what immediately comes to mind in a mono colored graveyard strategy is... Null Brooch. Sure it's more than 1 mana but it's a repeatable Negate in mono black.
Dark Deal is a black Windfall. Another Ill-Gotten Gains type effect.

New pet card? ;) I'm not opposed to running it. Solid card. Would give this mono green deck access to Dimir style removal.
Still trying to figure out how to squeeze Null Brooch into this.

Dooope. I'm a huge fan of deck building with restrictions. You are running some classic creatures.
Devouring Strossus is Lord of the Pit #2.
Dust Bowl? I only suggest it because I tend to run it when 50% of more of my mana base is basic.
Phyrexian Tower pays for a Volrath activation.
Skull of Ramos pays for a Volrath activation.
crucible of world not old school enough? Useful alongside that amazing Null Brooch.

Elfhame Sanctuary value/synergy with Damia.
Null Brooch solid counterspell on a stick that helps you draw 7 off Damia.

Glad you enjoy seeing the decks I make. I will answer your questions and give some insight into my decision making. First, I considered Expedition Map a long time ago and decided to go with more normal tutor cards such as Demonic Tutor etc. The map only grabs a land so it is limited in use. Mindslaver is one of those cards that can definitely cause all kinds of chaos but I chose to go for a faster win condition and less of cards like this. It takes too long to set up and get going. Lethal Vapors isn't a card I would run honestly. I would prefer a card like Spreading Plague or The Abyss instead. I chose exile as my main removal in this deck. Doing so counters graveyard strategies somewhat and indestructible. As for Static Orb and Winter Orb, these also interfere with my own win conditions. I'm trying to cast Approach of the Second Sun as fast as possible. This deck is very much control based and not really built to be a stax deck. Lastly, I've been asked before about why I don't run Yawgmoth's Will. I just don't think this particular deck is built to get value from it. It's an amazing card but I just didn't build this deck to support using such a card. Honestly, it would be more of a filler card for me.
Now, for the next set of questions. You are correct when you say that someone can still play one creature with Ward of Bones in play. The idea is to stop people from flooding the board with more than one. It is just a card to stall my opponents until I can draw or tutor my win conditions. This is the same reason why I use Portcullis. It keeps more than two creatures from being on the battlefield. Any creatures played on the battlefield beyond two get exiled until Portcullis leaves the battlefield. Again, I'm just slowing down and stalling my opponents so I can tutor or draw my win conditions. I feel that any creatureless deck should always run Portcullis. The value is just too insane. Energy Field is a card that I use to stall as well. It may last a couple of turns and that may be just enough to survive and tutor/cast my win condition. Null Brooch is such a fantastic card. A colorless artifact ability that just counters a non-creature spell is insane. It also combos crazy good with Ensnaring Bridge so that no creatures can attack because you have zero cards in hand. Witchbane Orb is just nice to have. It prevents a lot of bad things targeting you. It comes in handy more than you realize. You can't die to Grapeshot or other things with it in play. Norn's Annex forces people into a bad decision. They either pay white mana, lose life, or they can't attack you at all. Also, because of the Phyrexian Mana cost, you can play this fast to get value out of it quicker. Remember, if you make someone lose at least 8-10 life just to attack you, they are more vulnerable to other players killing them. The only other card I would put in place of this is No Mercy. Lastly, Mox Tantalite and Lotus Bloom are great for this deck. If I play them early enough, they allow me to cast Approach of the Second Sun very fast. Also, both suspend cards synergize with Tolaria West. Since the cards have a mana value of zero, you can use transmute from Tolaria West to search for them. I hope that shows you some of my reasoning and decision making. If you need to know anything further, feel free to ask.

I like that you went creatureless with this. I wanted too but there were too many creatures with tax abilities I wanted to utilize.
Null Brooch :) you know I'm just as big a fan as your are of this forgotten gem but this strategy is not built around the graveyard. An argument can be made for Forbid as a never ending counterspell is justified in the draw-go strategy. I have the perfect Exodus set replacement for the Brooch: Fade Away!
Soul Partition > Revoke Existence
Dovin's Veto and Supreme Verdict are too good to not be in this list.
Calamity's Wake I keep squeezing this into decks and am yet to be disappointed by it.
SufferFromEDHD on Athreos White Black Undying Evil

I told you on one of your other decks the way you utilize Null Brooch is how I also approach deck building. It really does fit anywhere! (except in mono blue decks)
How do you feel about Imp's Mischief and/or Rebuff the Wicked?
Martyr's Cause solid engine similar to Gate to Phyrexia.
Citanul Flute is that old school janky tech I love seeing being used to it's full potential.
I suggested Plague Spitter because it is the creature version of Noxious Field/Pestilence. After looking thru your creatures again I see a very clear theme that it does not fit into. Still a cool card that has synergy with the strategy and abuse potential alongside Athreos.
