I've recently added Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker, that you SpecimeN87 for that suggestion, so I don't currently see the need for more redundancy as I've also included Animate Dead and Reanimate.

I had Howling Mine and Font of Mythos to ensure my opponents had cards so I could force them to discard. Reconsidered that and have since removed those two.

I like Grim Haruspex myself, I was just concerned with the forced draw it places on me. Being a creature I suppose I could just sacrifice it if I don't need the cards any more. Consideration and testing to be done.

Animate Dead is indeed a reanimating spell for just 2 mana--it is considered to be the best reanimation spell behind Reanimate.

How the card functions is this: you enchant a creature card in a graveyard. Animate Dead returns it to play, but since it previously had the text "enchant card in graveyard", and the card is no longer in the graveyard, that has to change. So it rewrites its text to say basically just say "enchant creature".

But if someone destroys Animate Dead, then it kills its former host along with it.

Oh, and it gives it one less power as you said ;)

Pyrohemia is a red equivalent to Pestilence.

If you're trying for a Reanimator angle, Unmarked Grave from Modern Horizons 2 and Entomb from older sets are worth looking at, depending on format and budget. For the actual reanimation spell, Reanimate and Exhume are generally better than Doomed Necromancer. These aren't exactly budget cards, though, if that's a consideration.

sfolsom2006 theres the problem... I usually win by turn 4 lol don't need the card draw... jokes aside some card draw combos that have been good

  1. Final Parting into Vilis, Broker of Blood & Reanimate which you can definitely do on budget, and when you reanimate vilis you auto draw 8 cards because of the life loss from reanimate

  2. Skullclamp which you can keep killing off your shadowborn and drawing more which also fits with your Dictate of Erebos (mana for skull clamp is the only hard part but can be solved by adding Carnival of Souls or some other kind of ritual or spells say like Skirge Familiar

  3. Vilis, Broker of Blood if you dont have shadowborn apostles to sac for razaketh grab vilis instead and you can cast shadowborn for life and draw more... then you will have enough to grab razzy and win.

  4. Peer into the Abyss if you play this and you draw rituals or even just cast shadowborn sac get razaketh, then tutor songs of the damned you can win

  5. Just tutor these options doesn't matter what tutors just have some.

you have lots more draw options than the original deck so you should be good. Just think outside the box and strategies will pop up. Weird things that you would have never thought of.

I own my deck in paper but i proxy a few like grim monolith, city of traitors, and divine top.. don't be afraid to proxy you can make some solid ones.

"Also, I have no idea how to give you credit for the original deck construction, is there a place I can tag you for credit?"

This is usually done by putting a hyperlink in the description then posting the website so people can click on it if need be. Thanks for asking and it's all good I appreciate you actually trying lol. do let me know when you fix your problems with the deck i would like to hear how yours goes.

You are absolutely correct. Looking for similar cards I found Reanimate. In play testing I'm glad I've added both cards.

There's so many cards that recur cards from your graveyard in every color, you're doing yourself a disservice if you don't run anything.

Especially in a format like Commander, where your opponents combined probably run more answers than you have threats in your deck, you need to make sure that a simple opposing Wrath of God or an overloaded Vandalblast is not the final word on your gameplan, or you're gonna have a bad time in the last half of the game. You could try and fix the problem with tutors and card draw, which you should already be running, of course, but in a singleton format, there's a chance you just need that unique effect once more, but the card is in your graveyard. A Bala Ged Recovery  Flip, an Eternal Witness, a Mystic Sanctuary, a Reanimate or a Sun Titan can work miracles for you in those situations, and even with a Rest in Peace in play, none of them are completely dead cards. So low risk, high reward, and you don't need to focus on a graveyard strategy to enjoy the benefit of reusing its cards.

For exact the same reason, you should run some graveyard hate. Something like Scavenger Grounds or Soul-Guide Lantern which still has other utility even if you don't have to exile a graveyard. Low opportunity cost with max utility, every deck can run them. They don't hurt in your hand, and well timed use can even win you the game.

Or you could lean into not using the graveyard and Rest in Peace to hose everyone who agrees with what I just said ;-)

For any users who have not yet seen the set, here is a link to the full information from the set, and the cards contained within are as follows:

-Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip

-Ghoulcaller Ghisa

-Ophiomancer

-Phyrexian Arena

-Reanimate

-Toxic Deluge

-Sol Ring

Command Tower

I expected that those last two cards would be in this set, and they certainly have nice artwork, but this set, overall, feels far less powerful than did the green set, which severely disappoints me, as black is one of my two favorite colors in this game (the other being white).

All three creatures should not have been in this set; I, myself would have chosen Bloodgift Demon, Rune-Scarred Demon, and a tutor, such as Imperial Seal.

Caerwyn, in no way am I doubting the power of Necropotence, but its two drawbacks can actually hurt a player in many situations, so I prefer Greed in the majority of situations, although I am still hoping for a reprint of Book of Rass at some point in the future.

After the excellence of the green set, I had high hopes for all future installments in this series, so the actual list of cards in this set is very disappointing. Hopefully, the remaining three colors shall all have excellent sets.

It isn't bad but the lack of any sort of tutor is disappointing. They should have put in Entomb at least to go with the Reanimate.
