Hi Everyone!

I currently have a dilemma about what card should I use between Contingency Plan and Gifts Ungiven for my Deck Arise, Loyal Servants.

Which one you think is the best for this deck. Or should I use both?

I like how both can setup my game but I can't make my mind.

Between the two I'd pick Contingency Plan I think.

Gifts For Unburial and a fatty is a pretty common play pattern for some of thoose decks. It's just a great endstep play that gives you an almost surefire way to get a gret play on your next turn. Between the two, i'd probbly take Gifts.

Gifts because it's instant, a tutor for four different cards, graveyard interaction and gives you actual card advantage (two cards into your hand). Plan is card disadvantage and if you don't like the top five cards you see then you're binning them all or hurting your turns draw for the next few turns. I wouldn't play Plan because it doesn't draw.

Strategic Planning , a similar card, is a better option than Plan. Looks at two less cards and you can't arrange the top cards of your library, but you get a card into your hand and bin the rest which can by itself setup reanimation.

Other options are Frantic Search or Careful Study . The advantage of these is drawing and getting to discard cards from your hand such as a big creature you want to reanimate or Rites to flashback. Currently in your deck if you draw a big creature it's stuck in your hand because you don't have an easy way to get it into your graveyard unless you discard it due to hand size.

Windfall is also very powerful, but can be risky when playing Exhume .

If you are considering Contingency Plan , you might as well play Tome Scour , one mana cheaper and almost always the same result.
