Unburial Rites Discussion

Actually this combo doesn't work at all. Lord's last ability generate 1 colorless mana can be (and only be) used to cast a card in graveyard. However, it never gives you a way to cast a card in graveyard. For example, a card with flashback like Unburial Rites may benefit from Lord. To complete your combo, you should find a way to allow you cast cards from graveyard. Cards like Underworld Breach or Lurrus of the Dream-Den may help.

Thanks for commenting tman007!! You bring up excellent points.
I have been conflicted with running Terastodon since I first started experimenting with this build. While it can be useful in certain situations (when multiple artifacts, enchantments, or lands must be removed), I concur that I would prefer a fourth Archon of Cruelty , so I am dropping Terastodon doe now. I am running Ashen Rider strictly for removing indestructible cards, which is especially relevant against other Stoneblade decks with Kaldra Compleat , etc.
I’m also experimenting with keeping the deck’s CMC and land count as low as possible. You are right that running 18 lands makes it difficult to unearth Priest of Fell Rites and play/flashback Unburial Rites , but the deck can theoretically function and win with only two lands. For now I have returned to 20 lands, which seems to be the sweet spot.

I don't think Unburial Rites is worth it. You are spending 5 mana to reanimate a 7 mana creature. Plus you aren't running white, which means you'd need to use treasure to flash it back for 4 mana.
More importantly, you don't have enough ways to get it into your graveyard. In terms of discard outlets, you only have 4x Bone Shards . Your only additional outlets are targeting yourself with Thoughtseize or Kolaghan's Command , which is card disadvantage and clearly a last resort. Since you can't run Thrilling Discovery , I'd run Cathartic Reunion , Thrill of Possibility , or Lightning Axe as additional outlets.

The red splash in this list doesn't seem worth it for less than a playset of Thrilling Discovery , especially since you can run more Collective Brutality as discard outlets and I can't really think of any Prismatic Ending targets that cost three mana outside of the occasional Lurrus of the Dream-Den , although if you are keen on the red splash you should probably add a Savai Triome somewhere. Damn seems like something this deck would want as both cheap removal and a sweeper. Liliana of the Veil as some cheap interaction while also being a discard outlet.
I would also have some Wear / Tear in the sideboard. It can hit enchantment based graveyard hate like Rest in Peace while also being a good card against the artefact decks as it can Stone Rain a Urza's Saga and kill The Underworld Cookbook and Colossus Hammer . Anguished Unmaking was unplayable in a standard format with a W/B control deck in it. Vindicate is better 90% of the time it hits lands will also not losing you three life, which is pretty relevant against Murktide Regent decks where you want to bring in unconditional removal.

I would consider a couple of other creatures as one offs as alternatives for when you need an answer and not a threat. Ashen Rider springs to mind. As a good catch all. Another thing that may be worth adding is a few more shambling vents as needle spire is not great.
Lastly I would add at least 1 Unburial Rites. As I can be tutored with unmarked grave and used from the gy.
I would also look for a couple of winds of abandoned as solid mb removal spells that also can act as boardwipes against midrange. (As currently I feel like you may struggle against a more aggressive oponent, especially with only 1 reanimation target)
Lastly having something like Lingering Souls or Smiting Helix as alt wincons that also function well in a discard heavy deck. (At the moment you pretty much fold to surgical extraction, and/ and we'll times gy hate.) They would also allow you to stall games against aggro and still provide pressure when your combo gets countered/removed/discarded.

I'd try working in Conjurer's Closet to double dip on your creatures' ETB effects and to really nail down remaining the monarch. Mimic Vat can also help in the same way. I'd also strongly recommend throwing in some graveyard recursion for your creatures ( Reanimate , Animate Dead , Unburial Rites , etc.) as you've got some high CMC critters and only getting one use out of them feels bad if they die quickly.

Love the primer, but why are you even running Unburial Rites ? With Gifts Ungiven I would love the ability to actually return artifacts from your graveyard to your hand/the battlefield. Snapcaster Mage doesn't even help, although it is great for replaying answers.
