Hey Technowyvern!

You might want some cards such as Cordial Vampire , Kalastria Highborn , Sanctum Seeker , Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle , Pawn of Ulamog (replacement for Sifter of Skulls , Legion Lieutenant , Stromkirk Captain , Drana's Emissary , Malakir Bloodwitch , Necropolis Regent , Cliffhaven Vampire (combine with lifelink for infinite damage + life), Rakish Heir , Indulgent Aristocrat , Bloodlord of Vaasgoth , and Defiant Bloodlord .

BTW What is the FNM EDH meta like at Cerberus? I'm about to complete my Angelhorde Invasion deck so anything that would help in the meta or a rough idea of some of the meta decks would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Good Luck,

Hexaflexagon

When Playing Izoni, you want as many creatures as possible instead of cards that do similar things because they count as extra insects when they die. It's also worth noting that creatures are the easiest thing to pull back out of the graveyard for repeated value. I propose the following changes:

Golgari Germination --> Sifter of Skulls OR Pawn of Ulamog

Deadbridge Chant --> Meren of Clan Nel Toth

Golgari Locket --> Sakura-Tribe Elder

Crawling Sensation --> Splinterfright

I strongly believe that every reanimator deck in EDH should run Acidic Slime . For more sac outlets, you can look at Whisper, Blood Liturgist , Attrition , and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord . More sacrifice pay-off: Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest and Sifter of Skulls .

Hey man! I saw you commented on my Sen Triplets EDH, you helped a lot so, thanks for that! This are some of my suggestions for sacrifice recursions:

Dreadhorde Invasion Vindictive Vampire Sifter of Skulls Pawn of Ulamog Phyrexian Arena

I like the route you've taken, here is my version (I went with Proliferate/Infect):

Yawgmoth, Father of Machines

Hey, good start, but with Liliana as Commander consider expanding on the sacrifice theme? Sacrifice strategies with aristocrats can be good and powerful, but you need to commit to them with many sac outlets to make the payoffs for sacing creatures worth it. Cards such as Liliana herself, Pawn of Ulamog , Sifter of Skulls , Grim Haruspex , etc. are payoffs for sacing creatures, but they're lackluster without sac support.

Cards that are within your deck's budget to consider adding for sacrifice strategy:

Reanimation is a fine secondary strategy to use consider also expanding on it:

How big of a issue is colorless mana?

Considering Pawn of Ulamog and Sifter of Skulls .

MediSyntax firstly I'd like to say way to go on finding Sifter of Skulls . That card is a treasure; secondly I'd like to preface the next update (soon to have some awesome css styles added and custom js elements).

Some changes I'm looking to make are stripping out Walking Ballista in favour of Sifter of Skulls . Furthermore I feel like enough people have mentioned that Yawgmoth, Thran Physician is putting in work, so he'll be going in over the flex slot temporarily (as he draws cards, pumps lily, blocks tymna and hates on the best creature type - humans). If he were a zombie it would be a slam dunk include for now he is in for testing.

Paradox Engine is a really busted card... I think that a couple of times I've been tempted to slide this in, as in the instance that we have a sacrifice outlet, GC and a few rocks we could just use that to function in place of Phyrexian Arena / Blood Artist .

Undead Augur is as streamlined as we could really ask for. The card draws cards at a VERY reasonable cost, and it's a zombie!

Lastly I've been thinking of porting this list into a Gisa and Geralf list, as with abundant mana we can use the general to fill our grave and cast every combo piece within it (also having countermagic would make this list a lot less risky)

P.S: Yixlid Jailer can't be in our flex slots (despite how good he is against some decks).
