Tim’s Reanimator

“I decided to let my legion of followers on twitch vote for what they wanted to see in the league, and while the voting was close, Reanimator narrowly edged out Stoneblade. While I only recently started leaving my fair blue decks at home to dabble in combo last year, Reanimator has quickly become one of my favorites, capable of deciding the game during the first few turns. Additionally, the deck mulligans very well, being able to find a path to victory with as little as 3 cards (and some luck).

For viewers who are less familiar with Legacy, Reanimator should be a welcome addition to the league, as it has a relatively low learning curve, is extremely powerful (and fun!), and now with the release of EMA, almost the entire deck (Underground Sea aside) is about to become very affordable by legacy standards. I hope to show aspiring Reanimator pilots that navigating all the hate isn’t as scary as it seems.”
