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.

K0rt on ARCHONBLADE - Hybrid Reanimator/Stoneblade [MH2]

I've been playing around with a similar Esper version of this deck with the old Gifts Ungiven + Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite and Unburial Rites combo.

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.

amicdeep on The Necronomicon: Budget Mardu Reanimator

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.

Dankey on Thopter Gifts (Primer Included)

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.

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!

I'm getting the odd feeling that is getting better at old-school Reanimator decks than , especially in Modern. A lot of key cards are either banned in Modern, or too old to use outside of Legacy or Commander. Recently, it's been getting stuff like Back for More , Return Upon the Tide , and Nissa of Shadowed Boughs ( is trying to be a support color). Yeah, Goryo's Vengeance is still around, but when was the last time it was used for anything but Griselbrand ? Unburial Rites is easier to cast for from the graveyard than from the hand.

Now, I haven't actually seen a competitive dump-and-revive Reanimator deck since Dread Return , Golgari Grave-Troll , and Bridge from Below all went away, and losing Faithless Looting didn't help either. But there's a lot of recent cards trying to do that, and I'm wondering if Mardu or even Boros will be the first to crack the code.
