The Haunt of Hightower Discussion

God I almost forgot about Phenax. Tried really hard to make him work in standard when he first came around. I think you certainly have something going on here, but I'm not 100% sure wall tribal is the way to go about it. I would try to look more towards cards thats power/toughness care about how much is in the opponent's graveyard. Some good examples could be Consuming Aberration , Wight of Precinct Six , Mortivore , The Haunt of Hightower , Nighthowler , and Sewer Nemesis . I like the untapping options you have going, and I would recommend considering adding in some more draw + mill options like Sire of Stagnation , and Jace's Archivist , as well as including some copy mechanics like Lazav, Dimir Mastermind , Gigantoplasm , and Clever Impersonator to have more good stuff going at all times. Hope that all helps. Good luck on the milling!

Some cards that I run in my The Haunt of Hightower deck that may be of use:
Liliana's Specter , hits the table with the discard, flying body just a bonus. I'd use this rather than some of your more expensive single target discard spells as this is multiplayer and its hard enough to punish the table playing discard.
Tasigur's Cruelty again, hits the table and you're not likely to be paying retail on this.
Geth's Grimoire Good way to refuel as you strip peoples' hands.
Bolas's Citadel better with Haunt as the lifelink there keeps this going but this is still an obscene card.
Rankle, Master of Pranks the haste, evasion and multiple modes are all good.
Waste Not More resources for you as opponents lose theirs.
Not sure about Dismember , Hero's Downfall or Vraska's Contempt would probably be useful more often in this spot. Though I suppose if your meta plays a lot of indestructibles, then Dismember may be the answer.

This is no longer Standard-Legal. Wall of Forgotten Pharaohs , Blessed Light , Blight Keeper , and Sunset Pyramid have all rotated out. I suggest cards like Mortify , Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord , Knight of the Ebon Legion , Twinblade Paladin , Gideon's Company , and Bloodthirsty Aerialist to replace those cards. Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord and The Haunt of Hightower could be cool as well.

Ok I can see where that would be powerful. Just not sure it's what I'm wanting to do. The other suggestions you had were great. What are your thoughts on The Haunt of Hightower , Bloodchief Ascension , Venser's Journal , and Whip of Erebos

I feel like this absolutely needs Identity Thief and a Delirium package. However, I think that this is more just a flavor thing, so I’ll say the above, Dark Impostor , Dimir Doppelganger , Arcane Adaptation , and the classic Bogbrew Witch , Festering Newt , and Bubbling Cauldron package. Laboratory Maniac is super flavorful as well.
But since you look to be going with some heavy black synergies... have you considered The Haunt of Hightower as a commander? It’s definitely, imo, the coolest Halloween-themed commander, being both super cool and very spooky. Still, I understand if you have an attachment to the Reaper King after so long.

Notes from game on 09/08/2019:
- Bloodchief Ascension
- Exsanguinate - took out 3 players simultaneously
- Hex Parasite - OMG belongs in almost any black deck
- Lake of the Dead
- Overwhelming Forces
- Painful Quandary
- Phyrexian Obliterator
- Staff of the Death Magus
- Sword of Light and Shadow
Worth Considering for Removal:
- Arcane Lighthouse - unlikely to need / redundant with Detection Tower
- Lich's Mirror - I made a dumb mistake not paying enough attention to the win condition
- Maralen of the Mornsong (sigh) this was originally her deck
- Ob Nixilis, Unshackled - keep for at least one more round
- Platinum Emperion - belongs in another deck, redundant with Platinum Angel
- Soldevi Digger - very unlikely to need
- The Haunt of Hightower - I want to make this a better card than it really is, but I have to face it.

Thanks for the view. I dont really want to cut the opponent discard stuff, I have been building this toward that theme.. I run The Eldest Reborn, Necrogen Mists , Creeping Dread , Syphon Mind , The Haunt of Hightower , Anvil of Bogardan , and Geier Reach Sanitarium in an effort to support opponents discarding. If you have suggestions along these lines, i would love them.
Thanks for the note about Murderous Compulsion , dont know how that happened, has been fixed.
I noticed your deck runs Worldgorger Dragon along with the 5-6 reanimates and spells to support it. I have purposely not run this combo as my playgroup doesnt play infinite combos. Because I am not going to using madness to dig for combo pieces, I have removed a lot of the more sad madness cards like Weirded Vampire .
As for the zombie generation and grave recursion stuff, I already have a zombies deck that I enjoy playing, so didnt want to build to that theme. I was kinda disappointed when WotC decided to go that direction with the madness out of box.
Thanks again. I like Elixir of Immortality in your deck. may have to find a place for it in here.
