Hi! Forgot to reply to you. I took out Rally the Ancestors and replaced it with Lightning Bolt. I feel that Spark Harvest has enough sac.

I quite like this brew. Sone thoughts:

  • You probably want to use more fetchlands for Mayhem Devil to profit from.

  • I would suggest ditching both Immortal Servitude and Rally the Ancestors. Firstly, ditching them means you can easily get away with running only 22 lands. Secondly, Rally is particularly bad as you have no easy sac outlet (Priest will be summoning-sick). I would say, 99% of the time, running Unearth will be much stronger for you. After that, i think you need more interaction/killspells, but if you’re desperate for additional recursion, Persist, Undying Evil, or Malakir Rebirth  Flip are all better than Servitude/Rally in this deck.

  • As mentioned before, I think your deck needs more ways to interact with the opponents boardstate. The Sac & discard you have are good - but they all let the opponent choose what’s going. A few copies of Infernal Grasp, or a playset of Lightning Bolt, could help you in sticky situations

I'm unsure if you're against infinite combos, but if you're not you should definitely include Karmic Guide as it goes infinite with Reveillark as long as you have a sacrifice outlet that doesn't have an cost associated. Even without the combo in mind it's a card I would consider. I would recommend maybe adding one or two more sacrifice outlets that are conditionless as well, as you currently only have 3 and don't have a great deal of search options to ensure you reliably find one which can make the death triggers harder to land.

Wake the Dead is a decent card to consider, as you can throw a lot of creatures into play and get a lot of death triggers at instant speed, and you don't necessarily even need a sacrifice outlet online to get them. If you do have a sac outlet though, then Rally the Ancestors is equally potent and can end up being a lot cheaper if you're going for mass recursion. I've got a somewhat similar themed deck here if you want to look through it for card ideas. Overall a good looking deck though!

The main problem with Fog style lists is that Enchantress does basically the same thing with Solitary Confinement, except more compact and with a better shell.

That said, you could theoretically assemble a much weirder concept. Using cards like Hope of Ghirapur and Judge's Familiar to assemble other locks, something like Ravenous Squirrel to act as a big beater, and cards like Rally the Ancestors to bring everything back.

I recommend the Cauldron Familiar Witch's Oven combo to go with Ravenous Squirrel. You can also use Thraben Inspector as a draw engine -- just sac it to Oven or another sac outlet and get all the clues you need.

It might work pretty well, but I'm no aristocrats player so I couldn't tell you.

Absolutely love it. +1 for the name alone, but solid build all around. If I could give +2 for your choice of basic lands I would. You've definitely inspired me to try and build my own version of Awaken the Blood Avatar .

Quick question though... do you rely mostly on sacrificing your tokens in order to reduce the casting cost of Awaken the Blood Avatar , or do you sac your regular creatures as well? I'm curious because I thought cards with afterlife might be good here. Doomed Traveler / Garrison Cat / Hunted Witness and Ministrant of Obligation just to name a few (there are many, many more in these colors. Theses would all pair really well with two cards you're already running Anointed Procession / Teysa Karlov .

Regardless of whether or not you decide to use those you could add Agadeem's Awakening  Flip / Rally the Ancestors or Wake the Dead for some pretty explosive turns. Luminous Broodmoth would be really good here as well.

Nice build. Sacrifice a bunch of creatures to trigger Blood Artist , return them to play with Rally the Ancestors ...just to sacrifice them all over again circumventing the need to exile them. Great synergy, +1

Masterful what are your thoughts on using Vizier of Remedies with a persist creature such as Putrid Goblin or Restless Apparition for infinite loops? I know that it could be a bit fragile only having a single "-1/-1 reducer".

I'm thinking something along the lines of having a drain or card draw on death effect out, use Buried Alive to bury Carrion Feeder , Vizier of Remedies , and Restless Apparition , then mass recur with Gruesome Menagerie or Agadeem's Awakening  Flip and start looping deaths. Could also use Rally the Ancestors to reanimate at instant speed!

Love the deck!
