Wake the Dead


Cast this spell only during combat on an opponent's turn.

Return X target creature cards from your graveyard to the battlefield. Sacrifice those creatures at the beginning of the next end step.

I have considered both cards, numerous times actually. Luminous Broodmoth handcuffs me, forcing me to wait on sacrificing creatures until it’s on the field itself.

As for Oversold Cemetery I don’t have any real specific creature I’m concerned with returning from my graveyard. I’m more interested in mass creature revival, albeit short lived with Rally the Ancestors or Wake the Dead to be a knockout punch provided I have my board set up accordingly.

However, thank you for your interest and suggestions for the deck.

Wake the Dead could be a awesome card for this

I'm unsure if you're against infinite combos, but if you're not you should definitely include Karmic Guide as it goes infinite with Reveillark as long as you have a sacrifice outlet that doesn't have an cost associated. Even without the combo in mind it's a card I would consider. I would recommend maybe adding one or two more sacrifice outlets that are conditionless as well, as you currently only have 3 and don't have a great deal of search options to ensure you reliably find one which can make the death triggers harder to land.

Wake the Dead is a decent card to consider, as you can throw a lot of creatures into play and get a lot of death triggers at instant speed, and you don't necessarily even need a sacrifice outlet online to get them. If you do have a sac outlet though, then Rally the Ancestors is equally potent and can end up being a lot cheaper if you're going for mass recursion. I've got a somewhat similar themed deck here if you want to look through it for card ideas. Overall a good looking deck though!

Thank you for the suggestions freezerboy. I currently use Wake the Dead in my Araumi of the Dead Tide deck for similar reasons. I really like this suggestion as a means to get a surprise combo off. Even though ETB toolbox isn't the main focus of the deck, I could still see it working here with some of the other ETBs I already have.

Could make use of cards like Wake the Dead, Sin Collector, or Springjack Shepherd. I've had some very decent interactions with Wake the Dead in my reanimator deck. Usually catches opponents off guard when you can employ your ETB mechanics on their turn. Not sure if it still applies since you are toning back the ETB mechanics, but figured I'd mention it anyway.
