Quote from koffiegast »Nim Deathmantle, I think this card is staple for Jarad. Sac a creature, pay 4 more, and do it again.
Life from the Loam, get that recurring landbase going yo
Phyrexian reclamation, for the low price of 2 mana and 2 life, get your fatty back

Quote from Avvina »On point, I think his land count is exceptionally low.
Quote from Jaytron »Did you have a reddit post on this deck? Seems very familiar!
Side note: Do you have a "budget friendly" version of the deck? It seems that the most essential pieces aren't very expensive.
Quote from Jaytron »My worry with playing a graveyard deck is all the GY hate that most decks seem to run. Things like Leyline of the Void, Tormods Crypt, Relic of Protogenitus, etc etc. Do you just get blown out if that happens?
Quote from razzliox »How do we feel about Song of the Dryads?
Quote from benjameenbear »I think Awina hits it right on. I feel like you have quite a bit of utility removal already and that this card becomes a sorcery speed answer that detracts from your overall plan of combo-ing. Personally, if i were to add sorcery speed based removal I would choose Maelstrom Pulse because it has the added benefit of wiping out multiples of a card. Targeting someone's Sol Ring when you don't have it can lead to some awesome mana advantage or level the playing field a bit. I don't know if tokens is a thing in your group, but the Pulse has good added utility there. Of course it depends a lot on your meta. For example, my Kaalia deck runs Pyroblast AND Red Elemental Blast because there is so much blue running around. Having those two cards in any other play group would prolly make them less good.
Quote from Avvina »I think that it is absolutely top-tier green removal. Sure, its an enchantment, which means it can't compare to the instant speed powerhouses of Beast Within and Krosan Grip, but the card still deals with nearly anything (other than opposing forests), and can work as ramp in a pinch. The concern about them using removal on it to get back their permanent is worth noting, but its better than having sent at your face.
That said, I don't think you need to play it. You dont struggle to remove non-creature permanents that bad. I guess if you feel you want another answer to RiP, do it.
Quote from benjameenbear »Question for you: since there is a reanimator theme to your deck, have you considered adding another big fat thing to reanimate in addition to Baleful Force? i don't know how quickly you could reanimate it out, but reanimating a Terastodon or annihilating Eldrazi spaghetti monster could add another dimension to your deck as well. Or do you think that it would just detract from your highly focused combo?
Quote from benjameenbear »Currently, I am a little enamored with It That Betrays, but if you've already tested it and determined that it's not as good, you should try something else. Have you tried Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger? It provides both disruption and furthers your mana capabilities. And if it draws a removal spell, then that player has frozen mana and there's one less removal spell aimed at Jarad. I would recommend the 'Don as well. You can shut out a player that you know will disrupt you and it is a great fling target with Jarad. When you were dying to the elephant tokens, did you have no mass removal spell? Pulse begins to shine as a removal spell if you include the 'Don back in your list for obvious reasons.
Quote from benjameenbear »Indeed you did. Unless I missed it, there isn't an explanation as to why Vorinclex was removed. But, from what I can infer about your playgroup, there's a lot of removal floating around your playgroup. So maybe that's why it was removed.

I've got a slot open. What card should I test?
