Deck Description

Reanimator decks are good, and thragtusk restoration angel bla bla bla is good. I figured I would try combining them both. Seems alright, but I need to test play. Start off with mulch, looting, and savage first few turns. Turn 4 can rites or seance and pop something up their turn. With seance almost all the creatures will have an effect, can flicker with restoration angel to make permanent and get their effect again, or populate with a trostani. Can also function somewhat if rites or seance isnt run into. Against a fast aggro deck there are pillar of flames, farseeks, safe passages, and fogs to stall some. Comments are welcome. Sideboard also needs work.

Deck discussion for 4-Color Seance Rites

I'm how does one survive Aggro you have faithless looting grisly salvage and mulch before turn 4 a zombie deck could kill you before a permanent hits the table
Like you seriously need to cut like six or 8 cards for removal whether o-ring or pillar or whatever

youre right about the aggro. i did just read about how aggro recently 2 grands prix, but zombies isnt even a winning deck in the big circuits. and my fnm doesnt play them. i main decked dreadbore and sideboarded o-rings and pillars of flame. so in case somebody does play aggro i can stick in some responses. thanks for the help. any more comments about the main deck would be nice.

The winning black red deck at San Antonio Grand Prix (piloted by a friend of mine actually) runs gravecrawlers diregraf and messenger it's not strictly tribal but it's got a zombie core

Also this seems slow still maybe some dorks/ farseek

This is the deck Conley woods ran that got 4th I think (I think he got 4th this is the deck lost for sure)

It's fairly similar to what your trying to do except te goal is to cast the creature then get extra value off it with unburial rites

Thanks for all the feedback! Yeah the aggro decks running those 3 zombies easily runs over this deck. I took your suggestion and sideboarded farseek. What I have noticed with the people I primarily play against is they all have slow decks that finish big. Against them this would run fine, but I am worried about the fast decks. If pillar of flame and farseek isn't enough to stop aggro I will make more changes. It may be I am trying to do too much in one deck.
