Premium Deck Series: Graveborn DECK LIST SPOILER!

Alright, guys. The moment we've been waiting for! (Or at least, I have been waiting for)

Premium Deck Series: Graveborn comes out November 18th, a week from today. But someone's already leaked the spoiler to MTGSalvation.com.

Wanna know more? Of course you do! I mean, who wouldn't want a blinged-out Reanimator deck? :)

21 Swamp
Polluted Mire
Ebon Stronghold
Crystal Vein

Avatar of Woe
Crosis, the Purger
Inkwell Leviathan
Sphinx of the Steel Wind
Verdant Force
Blazing Archon
Putrid Imp
Hidden Horror
Faceless Butcher
Twisted Abomination
Zombie Infestation
Cabal Therapy
Last Rites
Sickening Dreams
Animate Dead
Buried Alive
Diabolic Servitude
Dread Return 

The list is taken straight from this MTGSalvation thread on the deck.

That's not too bad now! Just think of some of the heavily-weighted cards based on either price or popularity or use in a traditional Reanimator deck:

Dread Return
Blazing Archon
Sphinx of the Steel Wind
Exhume (and 3 copies! :)  )
Animate Dead (with the current oracle wording, new art, and 3 copies! :)  )
Inkwell Leviathan
Duress (and 3 copies! :)  )
Putrid Imp
And most importantly of all...Swamp! (What, did you expect to pay those black costs without swamps? :p  )

TCGPlayer has the low end of these contents being $70+. The MSRP for this deck? $35, plus tax. That's not a bad chunk of change cut from the price, considering at one point Entomb was around $30-$35 all by its lonesome.

If you've been wanting to get in on the Reanimator deck type but didn't have the staples of the deck, or you want to bling out your current Reanimator cards, or you're just looking for a fun all-foil deck to play, consider picking this up. I'm getting 3: one to hold on to and 2 to bust open, combine, and use.

I've already done some sample hand draws online and I'll just say, turn 2 Sphinx of the Steel Wind after Turn 1 Entomb and Turn 2 Exhume or Animate Dead is very hard to come back from. ;)
