Rakshasa's Disdain Discussion
4 months ago
Also take out Clear the Mind, Twisted Image, Prescient Chimera, Apprentice Wizard, Rakshasa's Disdain, Neutralizing Blast, Memory Lapse, Arcane Melee (It'l probably help your opponent just as much as you), Corrupted Grafstone, Grip of the Roil, and Hedron Crawler.
The deck should now have 99 cards in it plus the commander. Good Luck with it!

Nava will show you the cards I recommended removing. Some good keywords to look for if these don't tickle your fancy are Delirium, Flashback, and Threshold. Here are some cards you could add to it instead: Chill of Foreboding , Circular Logic , Countervailing Winds , Cryptic Serpent , Dakra Mystic , Detritivore , Diluvian Primordial , Dreamborn Muse , Fascination , Fraying Sanity , Gibbering Fiend , Magnivore , Manic Scribe , Ore-Scale Guardian , Rakshasa's Disdain , Rise from the Tides , Runehorn Hellkite , Stitcher Geralf , Stream of Thought , Treasure Cruise , Howling Golem , Millstone

You're kinda light on Ramp and card draw. I tend to want something like 6-9 pieces ramp and 4-7 pieces card draw. Kodama's Reach, Cultivate and all on the on color signets I'd recommend for ramp. And Treasure Cruise; Fact or Fiction, and it's cousin Sphinx of Uthuun; and Read the Bones I would consider for card advantage. Maybe something like Regrowth too.
I feel like Rise from the Grave and Rakshasa's Disdain are subpar versions of better cards. Like why not run Counterspell or Logic Knot or Delay or Disallow or... you get the idea. Yawgmoth's Vile Offering could be a spicy edition to this deck over rise. I'll also agree with the comment above and say Diabolic Servitude is great.
Seasons Past could be really really good but it depends on your meta. The deck indicates that you probably want one but if you have a faster meta, probably pass on it.
If it were me, I'd probably cut Grimoire of the Dead (Very slow), Ghoultree (Not really synergistic), Sultai Ascendancy, (It's not a great card advantage engine or graveyard filler), Boneyard Wurm, (Chumped all day long) Altar of the Brood, (My guess would be you'll never win by milling your opponents out), Witchbane Orb, (I doubt it's gonna come up, all that often), and Rise and distain as I mentioned above.
Cool deck. Hopefully any of that was useful.

Don't think you need 28 lands. 24-25 should be fine.
I feel like you might have some better counter-magic than Rakshasa's Disdain and Unwind lying around. Mana Leak and Negate perhaps? And if you don't, you might find a person at your local game store that will at least give you some Negates for free. Or at least Cancel, which is still better than Rakshasa's Disdain, if not both of them.

Don't you have a better counterspell than Rakshasa's Disdain lying around?

Just a bit of input for you: Why run Rakshasa's Disdain over Counterspell? It costs more and is conditional.Sidisi, Undead Vizier is amazing for a deck like this. A creature that grabs any card in your deck that can be easily brought back is pure value. Consider Reclamation Sage for recurrable artifact/enchantment removal (with as much self milling as you plan to be doing you want as many effects as you can stapled onto creatures). Living Death can act as a major wincon for this strategy and seems like a must include however it is around $6. Monastery Siege can let you pitch things from your hand into the grave and provides you with some draw. Ashnod's Altar could turn your less relevant late game zombie tokens into mana for a big spell like Villainous Wealth. I'm still working on my own list if you want to check it out: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/10-04-17-sidisi-reanimator/

The counterspells are not too heavy no matter what situation I am put in. This is mostly what my deck was back when Magic Origins was out, and I had Rakshasa's Disdain as a playset (I'll give you my previous decklist at a later time). Other than that, I can't afford Collective brutality right now, but I'll be sure to add that on my list of cards when I upgrade.
