Patriarch's Bidding


Each player chooses a creature type. Each player returns all creature cards of a type chosen this way from their graveyard to the battlefield.

Have you considered Patriarch's Bidding? It could work for a mass recursion of your whole undead army!

Haunting Voyage instead of Patriarch's Bidding. It's more versatile and won't help out opponents as much.

No prob! Haha yeah TO prices are usually pretty behind. I see a bunch on TCGPlayer for $4.

Ever considered Orvar, the All-Form rather than Bruvac? Would be a bit of a different build but you could run cheap cantrips like Cerulean Wisps to make Petitioner copies.

Another strong commander option, though it'd be self-mill and a second color, is Araumi of the Dead Tide. Encore makes more petitioners depending on the # of opponents which is cool. Also Araumi opens the door for strong black cards like Echoing Return, Secret Salvage, Living Death, Patriarch's Bidding, Twilight's Call, and Haunting Voyage. Could close out the game by reanimating Lab Maniac using Araumi or Dread Return

And lukas96,

Patriarch's Bidding is a good card if your deck is build midrange, like Living Death but in my aggro build there is no slot for such cards...

It's a dead card in opening hand and a dead card if you have no grave... IF you like it play Living Death instead, and run enough free sac outlets so you can sac your vamps with Living Death on the stack and make it a more one sided boardwipe.

Cheers man.

I see you have Patriarch's Bidding in here. Living Death might be worth an inclusion. Works as a board wipe for your opponents creatures. Sure, it gets rid of your 1/1 insects, but theoretically the creatures in your yard are far more valuable.
