Omen of the Dead Discussion

Thessali on Ayli/Lurrus Companion Deck

Oh snap. Thanks for your ideas!! You're right about Animate Dead. I thought that was in here. That's fixed. And I like Nezumi Graverobber-it's a mana sink and the flip would work pretty well in my meta. (The graveyard shenanigans are intense). I love Emeria, The Sky Ruin but I've played it in a bunch of decks and never been able to hit that Plains sweet spot so I ended up taking it out. After play testing I'll probably fool around with the mana base again.

For recurring Lurrus there's Apprentice Necromancer, Eternal Taskmaster the Nezumi Graverobber (if he's flipped and thank you! he's doing double duty already), Phyrexian Reclamation and then I added in Omen of the Dead and Unburial Rites. I like those over some of the other reanimate spells because Omen of the Dead is recurrable and Unburial Rites you can cast twice. But I do have an Unearth floating around I can work in after some play testing.

Yarok is powerful, but can also be a double-edged sword.

Dimir Acqueduct, Golgari Rot Farm, and Simic Growth Chamber feel like potentially dangerous lands unless you really want landfall since each one returns two lands to your hand instead of one (if you want that, Field of the Dead becomes a must). Your shock lands will also trigger twice, so be careful.

The THB omens feel like they work well with Yarok--Omen of the Hunt (over Grow from the Ashes), Omen of the Dead, Omen of the Sea.

Looks a little light on removal. Ravenous Chupacabra and Shriekmaw give you some removal options, and Hostage Taker lets you steal afterwards.

i suppose Contamination is Contaminated Ground, right? Otherwise, interesting build - I cannot afford the oubliettes, but would not miss them as Victim of Night and I have reservations on undying evil, as you want the opponent to kill of your creatures, which is not something super good to hold up. It is better to be proactive (and selective), rather than reactive with things like the new Omen of the Dead or the Return from Extinction - you have three creature types in your deck so that is almost always giving you a 2-for-1 return.
