Phyrexian Reclamation Discussion

multimedia on Idea 2: Varina Zombie Tribal

Hey, impressive budget, less than $200, version of Varina.

Wonder and Buried Alive are two powerful budget cards with Zombies. Buried can tutor for both Wonder and Gravecrawler + one other creature. Wonder could replace Lazotep Reaver and Buried could replace Corpse Connoisseur. Watery Grave for $3 more than Underground River is a land upgrade and another Island dual land for Wonder.

Phyrexian Reclamation is a repeatable way using life that you gain from Varina to recur Zombies. It's an upgrade for Omen of the Dead. Final Parting for one more mana does a lot more than Diabolic Tutor. Bontu's Monument can be another win condition with the Gravecrawler + Altar combo and I think it's an upgrade for Commander's Sphere.

These card suggestions would add about $10 to the budget.

Good luck with your deck.

Also I run Damnation instead of Living Death as I find that bringing all the creatures back from the graveyard helps my opponents more than it helps me. If there is an important creature in the yard I use Phyrexian Reclamation to get them back. I'm just curious why you use Living Death instead of a board wipe that doesn't help your opponents

Phyrexian Reclamation or volrath's stronghold. Phyrexian Rec hasnt been been too impactful in the games I've seen it played. Even more so for stronghold. I like phy rec because it's repeatable you dont care about your life total anyways. I dont like how stronghold doesnt give you colored mana and takes up your next draw. I remember 2 games in particular it hurt you, although I can't compare that to how many games that helped you.

Cutting a land does suck, but I remember at one point you did run 32 lands. Perhaps 33 could be a sweet spot?

Eloniel Lurrus is alright, but I don't think any of the CMC < 2 permanents in the deck are worth recurring only once per turn. I already have Phyrexian Reclamation and the Reassembling Skeleton which do a better job. Massacre Wurm is still in the combos since unfortunately, right now I can't edit the description. Every time I save a new description, the editor deletes half of it. I've been waiting to see if it fixes itself, but it hasn't yet, so eventually, I'll have to get the admins' attention. I like Hell's Caretaker but it seems very slow and costly. Cards like that die quickly in my meta, and I don't like playing such slow cards.

sub780lime Personally, I like 1-drop fodder like Garrison Cat more than 2-drops like Tithe Taker. The extra abilities tacked onto two drop fodder don't interest me compared to the tokens they make on death. Since I'm mainly aiming for the tokens, I'd rather them be 1 less mana. That being said, I don't think I'll include the cat since Hunted Witness and Doomed Traveler have been enough.

Tymna the Weaver might be a great include that also falls under the human tribal theme. You could also consider Phyrexian Reclamation for added recursion.

Oh, and sorry to flood your page but you also inspired me to try out Phyrexian Reclamation - as I felt the deck needed some more recursion. So, thank you!
