     Gadianten: Ah, derp. My playgroup plays with banned cards, though I typically don't. Forgot Bargain was banned lol!

     You made a good case for Gift of Immortality - you convinced me haha! Picked one up today as well as a Priest of Gix, and have re-added Buried Alive.

     Altar of Dementia is pretty clever too, I like that. And yeah, absolutely love Yawgmoth, Thran Physician with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed! =D

     Gadianten: Thanks for the suggestions! A few of them have actually already been in and out of the deck a number of times. I was thinking recently that Buried Alive should go back in, good call!

     Hadn't considered Priest of Gix or Yawgmoth's Bargain, but I think both are probably going to make it in as well, excellent suggestions!

     Edgewalker was cut a while ago, and the deck's average CMC has dropped since then as well. I often felt the cost reduction was relatively inconsequential. Same goes for Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim. Good card, but I found I almost never actually activated her, and the removal portion is pretty well covered by the deck's removal package.

     Not sure about Gift of Immortality and Dance of the Dead. I often feel like I have too many slots devoted to Reanimation cards as it is. I've considered cutting Animate Dead a few times, but haven't due to it's great synergy with Hall of Heliod's Generosity - which of course both of your suggestions here would take advantage of as well. Perhaps I'll swap Victimize out for Gift of Immortality.. something to think about!

     Thanks again, really great suggestions! =D

Alright, you NEED Buried Alive as it will enable you to abuse tools you already have in the deck. Choose Yawgmoth, Thran Physician + Karmic Guide + Reveillark and [Insert Reanimate like effect] to revive Reveillark to make a Yawgmoth's Bargain that murders your opponets creatures. Draw cards until you get a winning combo while clearing the board of all creatures you dislike. It is VERY easy to draw 20 or more cards this way and if you have lifegain you can draw as many cards as you want. I cant overstate how powerful this ability is and if you have something like Zulaport Cutthroat out you pretty much win.

Some other considerations for the deck are Edgewalker for the discounts, Priest of Gix for reanimation mana abuse, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim as a sacrificial outlet of mass destruction and Heliod's Pilgrim as a useful in tribe tool box fetch creature. I think a good tool box would be Gift of Immortality and Dance of the Dead in addition to your current Animate Dead. Pretty helpful to ensure a way to revive off a Buried Alive play. Gift of Immortality is pretty funny with cards like Selfless Spirit or even Yawgmoth, Thran Physician for value.

Don't forget, you can also run Vampiric Tutor (for fast mana), Mana Vault, and Jeweled Lotus for more turn 1/2 Braids. It's not the best, but it's the worst when it happens. If you wanted to get really competitive, then you can also run Blood Pet, Lotus Petal, Cabal Ritual, Mox Diamond, Mox Opal, Vault of Whispers, and Chrome Mox. Even Priest of Gix for helping kill everyone faster. The consistency is high enough to get this commander Rule 0'd at most tables if it got unbanned.

Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

Snap157 on How to combo Lyzolda?

jaymc1130 would you mind elaborating on how the Nim Deathmantle + Ashnod's Altar + Priest of Gix / Priest of Urabrask uses lyzolda to win?

Nim Deathmantle + Ashnod's Altar + Priest of Gix / Priest of Urabrask is one combo that utilizes the commander to translate to a win.

Gravecrawler + Phyrexian Altar + Plague Belcher is one combo that does not require the commander to translate to a win.

Neither should be particularly pricey (though Phyrexian Alter is not really a card I would consider "budget") and both are competitively capable set ups.

Black always has access to the Opposition Agent + Maralen of the Mornsong combo as well.
