Sepulchral Primordial

Creature — Avatar

Intimidate (This creature can't be blocked except by artifact creatures and/or creatures that share a colour with it.)

When Sepulchral Primordial enters the battlefield, for each opponent, you may put up to one target creature card from that player's graveyard onto the battlefield under your control.

Syr Konrad, the Grim with cards entering and leaving graves a decent wincon

Hofri Ghostforge double use etbs with other upside

Misconception Thanks for the comment!

You are absolutely right about Commander's Sphere. I have trouble thinking about that when I'm only in two colors. I'll make that swap ASAP.

Lavaz is good, but I removed it at some point to fit something else in (though I don't remember what it was). Honestly, I like Dimir Doppelganger better. And I have a solid balance of grave robbing already. I may replace Wrexial, the Risen Deep with him at some point, because I don't usually get a lot of value out of Wrexial.

I hadn't heard of Sepulchral Primordial until just now, so I'll give that guy some consideration. The CMC is a bit steep, and I don't have a ton of ramp, which is by design.

Frankly, I've been thinking about removing Teferi's Tutelage altogether. It tends to sit in my hand. So if I do, I don't think I'd replace it with a similar effect.

Removal of any kind is always good, so if I do cut the Tutelage, perhaps Feed the Swarm could be what I could add.

Cheers!

Great Anowon deck!

What do you think of running Psychic Corrosion instead of Teferi's Tutelage for a symmetrical effect?

Commander's Sphere is strictly better than Dimir Cluestone since you don't need to invest more Mana to sac it and draw. You can even sac it to draw after you tapped it for Mana!

Also, Lazav, Dimir Mastermind is an amazing "graverobber", especially since you can change his form again and again, whenever anyone mills a creature.

What are your thoughts on Sepulchral Primordial?

Maybe you can make some space for Feed the Swarm for that sweet enchantment removal in Dimir, altough only at sorcery speed.

RedBullMan2 on What wonderful cards! I think I will TAKE THEM

TheoryCrafter hey man so, i cant say i have ever thought about Enslave but i cant say either that i love it. I think its too slow and 1 damage to one player in a commander game is nothing. I believe there are much better cards than this, also i prefer to play with their graveyard more thats why i have cards such as Sepulchral Primordial. Thanks for the suggestion tho

Hey, this is a really good start for could be less than $50, but you did forget Sol Ring.

Anje Falkenrath is a nice budget legendary Vampire for repeatable loot to help to setup Olivia. Consider more sac outlets? Goblin Bombardment and High Market are excellent and Undercity Informer is fine. Consistently you really want a sac outlet to protect creatures you reanimate with Olivia from being exiled.

Falkenrath Aristocrat is a creature who Olivia can reanimate and since it has flying that helps it to survive combat since it enters attacking. Dark Privilege is a budget old/rarely seen card, but can be powerful when enchanted to Olivia. Repeatable regeneration can protect Olivia from combat damage letting her more freely attack to trigger. The creature Olivia reanimated can be fodder to sac to regenerate her which is helpful when you're reanimating a creature who has an ETB effect such as Vile Entomber. Viscera Seer is a one drop sac outlet that gives you some library manipulation to help draws.


Anje and the sac outlets are support cards and I think you can afford to cut a few high CMC creatures who have redundant effects to add them. You have many ways to tutor directly for a creature of your choice and put it into your graveyard which gives you leeway to play mostly the better creatures here to reanimate.

Some cuts to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

multimedia on Olivia, Crimson Bride Commander

Hey, you're welcome. Some more advice is streamline the creatures, reduce down to the best creatures you want to reanimate with Olivia and the best support to make that happen. Consider a toolbox concept with tutors and more looting? Streamlining will help to cut the redundancy that you don't need from creatures. By cutting many high CMC creatures for lower CMC reanimation enablers this also reduces the mana curve which is very high right now at 4.5.

The idea is the enablers help to find the better high CMC creatures you want to reanimate with Olivia/get them into your graveyard. Since the enablers are less mana then you can realistically cast them, hopefully before you cast Olivia. By reducing the mana curve then you could cut some lands: 1x Swamp and 1x Mountain.


Example of streamline current creature base (cuts number of creatures in half):

  • Master of Cruelties
  • Port Razer
  • Rune-Scarred Demon
  • Burning-Rune Demon
  • Rakdos the Defiler
  • Dragon Mage
  • Archon of Cruelty
  • Balefire Dragon
  • Sepulchral Primordial
  • Meteor Golem
  • Noxious Gearhulk
  • Flayer of the Hatebound

The other creature spots would be for support.

  • Yahenni, Undying Partisan
  • Chainer, Nightmare Adept
  • Solemn Simulacrum
  • Falkenrath Aristocrat
  • Gravebreaker Lamia

Rakdos the Defiler and Archon of Cruelty are better than the other high CMC creatures here who can make opponents sac permanents/creature. Dragon Mage is better than the other high CMC creatures here who draw cards. Sepulchral Primordial makes all the other creatures who reanimate and gain control of opponent creatures redundant. Meteor Golem and Noxious Gearhulk are better than the other creatures who can destroy a creature and Noxious gains life. Balefire Dragon is better than other creatures who do damage to opponent creatures.


With a higher budget these are some changes to consider for more help to setup Olivia:

These changes are cutting some high CMC creatures to add tutors and/or more looting. I offer more advice in another comment if you're interested. Would you like me to continue?
