Whip of Erebos gets all the credit for the Reanimator decks that are currently terrorizing Standard, but it's not the only way to do things. Sure, you can Whip back a Hornet Queen or a bunch of Siege Rhinos, but is that better than giving something +20/+20?
Enter Strength from the Fallen.
A few brave souls tried to make this work last season but couldn't get it quite right. It didn't help that Pack Rat and Supreme Verdict were powerful cards that were difficult to beat. Maybe now is the time?
Earlier this week, I showcased Tim Ealey's PTQ winning graveyard deck featuring Soul of Theros, but perhaps Strength from the Fallen is a better option. With mostly creatures in the deck, it seems like a fine way to smash through things like Siege Rhino.
There might only be fourteen enchantments in the deck, but Commune with the Gods can find them. The only thing left to worry about is things like zombie tokens and Satyr Wayfinders chump-blocking, but that's what Herald of Torment is for!
