Budget pauper REANIMATOR:

... ... ... EXHUME this deck from a GRAVE with an upvote if you like it!

How does it work?

This is an RB reanimator deck built around Exhume. The main idea is to throw your Eldrazi beasts to the grave and bring them back alive. This is possible even on TURN ONE!

TURN 1 hasted Ulamog's Crusher:

TURN 1: Swamp + Dark Ritual. Cast Putrid Imp and discard Ulamog's Crusher and Dragon Breath. Play Exhume on Ulamog's Crusher and move Dragon Breath from a graveyard to Ulamog's Crusher -> evil laugh -> attack -> profit.

Basic strategy:

You want to play the combo on TURN 1-3 when your opponent is defensless and your graveyard intact.

Use Faithless Looting, Cathartic Reunion and/or Tormenting Voice to discard your Ulamog's Crusher, Hand of Emrakul and Eldrazi Devastator (ideally together with Dragon Breath to get your exhumed creature haste) while drawing insanely to get Exhume.

Prefered Exhumed creatures are usually Ulamog's Crusher > Hand of Emrakul > Eldrazi Devastator because of annihilator, nevertheless, trample is sometimes more important to overcome a horde of chump blockers.

Putrid Imp is another source for discard while Gurmag Angler is your solid non-Exhume plan B.

Dark Ritual is here to accelerate your combo. Simian Spirit Guide enables you to play Cathartic Reunion or Tormenting Voice on T1.

Shred Memory is your tutor for Exhume but you can also use it to find Cathartic Reunion or Tormenting Voice if you desperately need a discard source or just simply cast it to get rid of opponent's creatures in his or her graveyard.

Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse are here to fill the graveyard for Gurmag Angler as well as get rid of extra lands.

Other usefull combos:

TURN 1 Dark Ritual + Shred Memory to find Exhume.

TURN 1 Simian Spirit Guide enables you to play Cathartic Reunion or Tormenting Voice to get some Eldrazi and Dragon Breath to the graveyard early on so you can Exhume on TURN 2.

Empty / exiled graveyard?

Although it's not the way you want to play it, you can hard cast Ulamog's Crusher quite early if you have more Dark Rituals in your hand (it happens!).


The sideboard costs ~3$ but it is your local meta-dependent so adjust it according to that if needed.

4x Apostle's Blessing to protect your Exhumed creatures even from exile such as Unmake or Journey to Nowhere! It also can be tutored by Shred Memory.

1x Doom Blade as a spot removal which can also be tutored by Shred Memory.

4x Duress to remove problematic cards before they are played.

3x Red Elemental Blast mainly against Counterspells and alike waiting silently for our Exhume.

3x Smelt to get rid of Relic of Progenitus or Nihil Spellbomb or against any other annoying artifacts.

That's it folks! Have fun and CRUSH your opponent!
