I like the use of putrid in this deck rather than the just the usual Buried Alive. Reanimate decks are always a pain to play against. Have you thought about Irridescent Angel for this or no?

This deck will be a pretty good reanimator Quimby. I'm sure you'll be able to whip out quite a few nasty turn ones and turn twos. As to tivadar's comment, the reason Irridescent angel wouldn't be too great, is because the wallop it packs isn't nearly as much as other creatures could. Six turns is to long for them to be beaten down. Spirit of the Night would be good for this deck if you can get one Quimby. If you do, you might want to take out the symbiotic wurm, or possibly a brainstorm. I think the spirit has pro-white, which is much needed for those naughty swords.

My experience with reanimator is that they suffer from removal and small blockers (especially with protection). The reason I recommended Irridesent is for the untargetability and the evasion. Sure it takes longer to get a kill, but the kill's a little more guarenteed.

Still think it's rather good, just think it may run into trouble against denial decks... Unsummon will squash you and Irridesent is immune.

I like this deck quite a bit. For legacy, is Lotus Petal Buy restricted? Other than that, perhaps drop the Duress Buy in favor of Cabal Therapy Buy so that if you need to you can target yourself and name the creature card that you want to bury/reanimate. Just a thought.

If you could, I'd appriciate it if you'd take a look at and rate either my Reanimate me Again deck or my Wizard deck (or both if you're feeling really generous/helpful!!) Thanks!

Lotus petal is legal in T1.5 yes. As to the cabal therapy instead of the duress, thats a kind of cool suggestion. I think instead, leave in the duress, but maybe replace something with a cabal therapy or two. As to tivadar's comment, I this deck does need untargetable beating, and that's what the slagwurm is for. The difference is, with the slagwurm, they're going to have to chump block for quite a while, whereas with the angel, it's possible for them to build up quite an army. Lets say you're playing fish, sligh, or beats, they're little army with pack a greater wallop than the lone angel win. So while angel wouldn't be a bad decision, i think the slagwurm would work better. Actually quimby, i think you might want to take out the symbiotic in favor of another slagwurm. Swords can be b1tch3s, as can bounce. I drew a few test hands in the deck analysis of this. My advice to you is to mulligan agressivly. If you get a hand with a fatty, but no means to discard it, dont keep it.

hmmmm....
last time i talked to you or alex this deck looked like a piece of shit
*cough*Phage the Untouchable Buy*cough*

looks pretty kick ass right about ner. but honestly i dont thionk you have enough control in this deck. Cabal Therapy Buy is actually a kick ass idea. and why do you really need the City of Brass Buy? why not juust use a few fetchlands, i.e.Polluted Delta Buy? and where the fuck is the Spirit of the Night Buy? it should easily replace the Spiritmonger Buy.

other than that, looks pretty solid. and i agree with alex, dont be afraid to mulligan aggressively. reanimator can always use a solid beginning hand for even heavier aggro kill.

I see what you're saying about the slagwurm, it does pack more of a wallop, but it also doesn't have trample, which makes it not so good against pro-green or regenerate. I always just preferred the unblockability of the angel.

Anyways, why impulse? Sure you get to look at 4, but there's no discard, might as well get as much of that as you can. Have you thought about thirst for knowledge? Draw three discard two (or one if it's an artifact). Catalog is the same careful study, except at instant speed, which can be useful depending on the situation.

I chose to use impulse in place of brainstorm cuz I found that I would look at 3 cards but wouldn't like any of them. With impulse I can move some unwanted cards(mostly land) to the bottom of my deck.

def. one of the better reanimator decks ive seen. Only suggestion is you add an Avatar of Woe Buy as creature removal is needed and possibly Laquatus's Champion Buy

Thanks for your comment on my reanimator deck verry helpfull. Not sure remoove Symbiotic Wurm gives 7 token in 1 shot not bad Plunge into Darkness Attrition makes sac the wurm with bonnus you see or destroy opponent. creature or taking life by the sac of 7 token with Plunge into Darkness and 21 more life for me.

I agree with the animate dead i tought it was not legal. For they Akroma it,s a great card the only point it’s a pro blakc.

I love your gloom in side board :o)

Isit possible to make this deck faster by remooving blue and find other card in black or artifact for replacing those study like this i may put some lake of the dead for accelarating. Any other suggestion? You have a verry nice reanimator deck why the duress?

Although lake of the dead is a good card, I don't use it cuz I need to sac a swamp in order to use it. Duress is there to control my opponent's hand, mostly to get rid of Swords to Plowshares, which aren't very nice against my bid creatures.

Necromancy can be played as an instant and on their graveyard too I believe, it works better than animate dead I think. What do I know? I agree, Avatar of Woe is a good choice for this deck too.

NIce deck.. I love the side board. personaly i like to throw bladewing the risen in there only cause it will get you an extra fatty little quicker. and since your running red you can pump a little.
Thanks for rating my deck btw.
