Reaper of Night

Reaper of Night

Creature — Specter

Whenever Reaper of Night attacks, if defending player has two or fewer cards in hand, it gains flying until end of turn.


(You may cast Reaper of Night from exile if you sent it on an adventure.)


Harvest Fear

Sorcery — Adventure

Target opponent discards two cards.


(You may cast Harvest Fear for from anywhere that you have the permission to cast this, then exile it on an adventure instead of putting it into your graveyard. When you have not chosen to cast Harvest Fear, this card is treated only as Reaper of Night in whatever zone it is in.)

(Example scenarios for Harvest Fear: You may cast this off of Melek, Izzet Paragon . You may not target this with Snapcaster Mage . Thalia, Guardian of Thraben increases the cost of this. Electrodominance requires X=4. You may cast this from a cascade spell if the spell has a cost greater than Reaper of Night's cost. If you cast a Harvest Fear that another player owns, only you may cast the Reaper of Night that gets sent on an adventure, not the owner.)

Looks like a fun starter commander! Black White lifegain is a definite fun archtype to build, maybe work up towards something like Karlov of the Ghost Council or Oloro, Ageless Ascetic ! I know starting out budget is important as you don't want to invest in cards you might not like, so I've made the recommendations with that in mind!

On the first look, your commander can filter through your deck fairly consistently, so some reanimation spells like Dread Return Unburial Rites Victimize might work out for you!

Revival / Revenge and Light of Promise are both fun cards that offer some utility and can get out of hand.

Spirit Loop seems like it could have a home in your deck, as it's a consistent 2cmc spell that you can keep casting and getting back to trigger your commander.

Well of Lost Dreams Dawn of Hope Cosmos Elixir Are all sources of card draw that synergize with your lifegain gameplan! Your commander's colors are notoriously known for lacking card draw and ramp, so these might help keep you in the game!

Soul Warden Soul's Attendant and Suture Priest are decent lifegain triggers, as they trigger on each creature entering the battlefield.

Blind Obedience seems perfect for your deck!

Vampire Nighthawk Indulging Patrician Basilica Bell-Haunt Angel of Vitality are creatures that seem to fit with your gameplan.

Lurrus of the Dream-Den offers consistent recursion and allows you to cast lower cmc permanents. Kami of False Hope could also pair with this really well, as it's basically a fog effect that you can cast for cheap over and over!

In your current list, it appears a little removal light (which to be fair is meta dependent). since you're playing white, you have access to cards like Darksteel Mutation and Reprobation , which can be a headache for your opponents to deal with if you enchant their commander. Also Victimize is a great catchall removal spell.

Colored mana seems at a premium in your deck, so I'd also look into getting some cheaper artifact ramp like Marble Diamond and Charcoal Diamond .

For cuts, I'd recommend evaluating your cards in terms of whether they actively win the game or help you do what you want. In your current list Fortified Rampart I've found to be underwhelming and doesn't further your gameplan. I'd also recommend replacing the following: Star-Crowned Stag Skeleton Archer Reaper of Night Kor Scythemaster Inspiring Captain Hailstorm Valkyrie Gargoyle Sentinel Fiend Binder Angel of the Dawn Courier Griffin Silverflame Ritual Chaplain's Blessing Splendid Agony Djeru's Renunciation Sinister Possession .

That being said, it can sometimes be fun just trying your best with whatever cards are lying around! Hopefully the suggestions can give your deck a little pep!

Are you trying to make the deck budget? If not Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek are essential. Play Shrieking Affliction to kill your opponents. Maybe consider Waste Not as well? I'd cut both Ob Nixilis cards. They don't really fit or have a purpose. Remove over costed cards like Reaper of Night and Davriel's Shadowfugue . Ashiok, Dream Render seems like a weird inclusion as well.

You're going to want to move Legion's End to the mainboard it deals with the zombies from Field of the Dead and it can deal with Hydroid Krasis . You may want to consider Reaper of Night it's an absolute pounding for control decks especially if you have out a Lucky Clover

I think Reaper of Night might be a little too expensive for its value in this deck. 4/5 creature for 7CMC is weak, even if it would fly when it comes to board.

Thanks for spot, anyway!
