How it Works

a new reanimator deck that i cooked up. Works rather well.

Here is a break down:

Reanimation fodder:

Autochthon Wurm Buy: do i really need to say anything. It a frackin beastie creature.
Blazing Archon Buy: Pretty decent size, with a great ability that will stop weenies in their tracks. Also, his 9 C.C. allows him to be transmuted for my the Grozoth
Grozoth Buy: Just amazing in this deck for a few reasons. First he's big and scary. Secondly, he can put himself in the graveyard for reanimation while at the same time searching for another massive creature to be reanimated.
Excruciator Buy: Basically he looks cool and has a nice effect if anyone is playing really defensive and trying to Fog Buy me. Works weel against a gift's player trying to set up an etheral haze lock.
Mindleech Mass Buy: cool card which is big and tramples over little guys. Also allows me to take any threatening cards out of my opponents hand so that they cant use them against me.
Razia, Boros Archangel Buy: What can i say, she's hot!!(JK). Anyway nice evasive abilites and haste on top of that.

The Accelerators:

Birds of Paradise Buy: Duh, the best first turn drop in the game, also helps to smooth out my mana costs since im playing 3 colors.
Sakura-Tribe Elder Buy: cant go wrong with STEve thining your deck of lands.
Kodama's Reach Buy: i think we all know by now that this is one of the top three accelerators in standard right now next to BOP and STE.

The reanimators:

Vigor Mortis Buy: the new zombify is back and its better than ever. Almost always will be played with {G} so my creature will CIP bigger.
Zombify Buy: The main reanimator in the deck.
Dimir Doppelganger Buy: A new addition that fits nicely. Can impersonate different creaures if the circumstances call for it and also costs less than the reanimation spells.

The discard:

Blackmail Buy: works both ways. Could possibly get rid of something harmful in my opponents had or is a discard outlet for me if i got to dump a fatty into the grave.
Compulsive Research Buy: good card, both draw and discard, but will probably get replaced when something better comes along.
Glimpse the Unthinkable Buy: everyone is going around saying how broken this is and how amazing it is at milling people. I just use it as the standard format's version of Buried Alive Buy. Almost always dumps a fatty into the grave and can be used against my opponent if i feel like it.

The lands:

Just basically a bunch of duals which help smooth out the mana base.
