Radiant Solar

Creature — Angel

Flying, lifelink

Whenever this or another nontoken creature enters the battlefield under your control, venture into the dungeon.

, Discard this: Venture into the dungeon and you gain 3 life. (If you aren't venturing through a dungeon, choose one of the dungeon cards you own from outside the game, put it into the command zone and put a venture counter on the first room of that dungeon. All effects of that room trigger. When you venture into the dungeon while you have a dungeon in the command zone, advance to the next room downward of your choice and triggering all effects of that room. When you have resolved the effects of the last room of the dungeon, remove that dungeon from the game. You can only venture through one dungeon at a time.)

Hey, nice budget upgrade of the precon.

Tortured Existence is a repeatable discard effect to trigger Sefris to venture on each player's turn for one mana each time as long as you have at least one creature in your graveyard and one creature in your hand to repeatedly loop discard/recur. Existence + Radiant Solar to venture two times on each player's turn for and Solar can put itself into your graveyard from your hand to enable Existence. Cycling creatures are also helpful to enable Existence. Existence is a reanimation enabler that you can activate at instant speed to abuse Sefris's Create Undead effect.

Viscera Seer + Reassembling Skeleton combo to trigger Sefris to venture on each player's turn for two mana each time. Can also pair Seer with Ashen Rider for a repeatable effect of Rider dying, to get Rider back into your graveyard to reanimate again with Sefris's Create Undead effect. Apprentice Necromancer also combos with Rider since Rider will die at the next end step.

Sun Titan + Apprentice Necromancer for repeatable reanimation of any 3 CMC or less permanents for only one mana. When Titan is reanimated by Necromancer it can reanimate Necromancer and Necromancer gives Titan haste when it reanimates it. Do this interaction on your turn, each time for one mana.


If reanimation is the main theme then consider a few more effects to setup? Loot is draw and then discard which triggers Sefris to venture and it gives good control over what cards you discard. Consider more loot?

Vile Entomber can search for and put any card into your graveyard to setup reanimation.

If interested I offer more advice including cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, consider more budget card interactions with Serfis that let you repeatedly venture on your opponents turns? Phyrexian Reclamation combos with Radiant Solar for repeatable venture twice for three mana and the life gained from Solar negates the life loss of Reclamation. Compulsion is repeatable venture for two mana, discard a creature to reanimate as well as repeatable draw.

Reassembling Skeleton combos with Viscera Seer for repeatable venture/scry 1 for two mana. Apprentice Necromancer combos with Sun Titan for repeatable reanimation of 3 CMC or less permanents. I'm suggesting one 1 drop and three 2 drops therefore you could cut some higher CMC cards for these to help lower the mana curve which is high at 3.4.

Some changes to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, Tortured Existence is one of the better budget cards with Serfis to venture. You can activate it on your opponents turns for one mana to venture and only need one creature in your hand to do this. The act of discarding a creature card is the cost of the ability therefore after you discard a creature card you can return that same creature back to your hand and do it again the next turn.

Existence is also excellent with one of the better cards to venture, Radiant Solar . You can discard Solar to venture twice and then get her back to hand to do it again when you have another creature to discard. The interaction of Viscera Seer and Reassembling Skeleton + Serfis lets you venture on each player's turn for two mana by Skeleton reanimating itself. Skeleton is a creature you can keep discarding with Existence to get back Solar. Seer + Skeleton when you control Solar can repeatedly for two mana each time to trigger Solar to venture.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, another allstar one drop is Phyrexian Reclamation . It combos with Radiant Solar 's discard activated ability and Sefris to venture into the dungeon two times each turn for three mana. Reclamation can also help to setup Tortured Existence by recurring a creature to your hand to discard. Moon-Blessed Cleric can tutor for either of these enchantments as well as Rooftop Storm and when she dies get her back with these enchantments.

Use Master of Death as a creature for continuous discard with Existence and it can return to your hand from graveyard at your upkeep to keep rolling with Existence or other effects. Equip Sefris with Zephyr Boots to give him flying evasion and with Master of Death a way to venture on your turn when you discard it. Giving flying to Sefris can make him a potential source of threating Commander damage especially if you keep going into "Storeroom" room to make Sefris bigger.

Viscera Seer combos with Reassembling Skeleton and Sefris for two mana to venture on each players turn. Can also use Seer + Skeleton with Radiant Solar for lots of venturing. Compulsion with Sefris costs two mana to potentially venture on each players turn.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, good budget upgrade of the precon and nice work in progress.

Some budget interactions to consider adding that let you trigger Sefris to venture into the dungeon on each opponents turn resulting in a lot more venturing quicker.

Tortured Existence is powerful with Sefris because you can activate it at instant speed on your opponents turns to discard which is what makes it an excellent source of repeatable venturing. Existence lets you discard a creature to then recur a creature, but you can recur the same creature you just discarded. The act of discarding the creature is part of the cost of the ability which happens first and then after that you choose a creature in your graveyard to return to your hand which can be the creature you just discarded. For one black mana on each player's turn as long as you have a creature in hand you can trigger Sefris to venture into the dungeon.

Master of Death goes well with Existence because you can return Master to your hand at your upkeep for only 1 life. As long as you do this then you have a creature to discard with Existence. Existence can also setup Sefris's second ability to reanimate a creature and do this on an opponent's turn. You can discard a creature at instant speed which triggers Sefris to venture, setup reanimation and complete a dungeon to then reanimate the creature you just discarded.


Reassembling Skeleton + Viscera Seer for two mana on each players turn trigger Sefris to venture. Seer sacs Skeleton and you pay two mana to return Skeleton to the battlefield and repeat on the next players turn. Add Pawn of Ulamog to reduce the cost of returning Skeleton to the battlefield to one black mana. Skeleton and Master of Death are both good creatures with sac outlets because you can get them back.

Pair Radiant Solar with Skeleton + Seer for more ways to venture during your opponents turns, each time Skeleton enters the battlefield.


Phyrexian Reclamation + Radiant Solar lets you venture twice on each player's turn for 2 life + three mana. You activate Solar to discard it which triggers Sefris to venture as well as venture again. Then recur Solar with Reclamation and do it again on the next player's turn. The gaining 3 life from Solar's activation helps to pay for Reclamation. Add Hama Pashar, Ruin Seeker to complete Lost Mine of Phandelver on each players turn for 2 life + three mana.

Good luck with your deck.

Ok, first things first: This deck looks great, and your description is supreme!

I understand that you don't want to focus on flickering, but Deadeye Navigator would still be great with all the ETBs you have here. It also always at least a good card to protect Sefris, and it combines great with Reveillark to recur multiple smal creatures per turn, which would result in more triggers off of Radiant Solar .

Another great card could be Gyruda, Doom of Depths . The reanimation is nice, but the ETB itself basically guarantees you another Sefris trigger, which also makes Gyruda a great reanimation target.

Finally, Oriq Loremage is a great card to trigger Sefris while also being able to go for the optimal reanimation target for each situation. There's Vile Entomber , as well.

I hope this helps. I wish you tons of fun with the deck!
