You want to run an aggressive early game, but your real meat and potatoes comes turn 3 with either a [[Rotting Regisaur]] or a large [[Embodiment of Agonies]] off the back of a [[Stitcher's Supplier]]. From this point your goal is to fill your grave and recur creatures with [[Blood for Bones]], [[Revival]], and [[Cavalier of Night]].

Card-by-Card Breakdown

[[Cavalier of Night]] - This card does everything. It destroys creatures, it gains you life, it recurs your nastiest threats.

[[Embodiment of Agonies]] - This card is a serious closer for you as it can become an 11/11 with flying and deathtouch out of virtually nowhere.

[[Blood for Bones]] - Sac a creature, bring two back. Ideally this brings a [[Cavalier of Night]] to the battlefield and an [[Embodiment of Agonies]] to your hand.

[[Stitcher's Supplier]] - Fills the grave, chump blocks.

[[Graveyard Marshal]] - Makes use of duplicate cards in your graveyard, but is mostly a [[Liliana, Untouched by Death]] target and early beats.

[[Rotting Regisaur]] - Dumps cards from your hand to pump [[Embodiment of Agonies]] or dumps [[Cavalier of Night]] to bring it out early with [[Blood for Bones]].

[[Liliana, Untouched by Death]] - Fills your graveyard, can recur all but two of your creatures, gains you life, takes life directly, kills blockers. This girl is gas.

[[Ashiok, Dream Render]] - Fills your graveyard, exiles opponent's graveyard and shuts down tutoring.

[[Revival]] - Recurs your best threats or puts your opponent in a nasty position and double-dips for pumping [[Embodiment of Agonies]]

[[Cast Down]] - It kills things... Not everything needs to be a fancy swiss army knife.

Sideboard Breakdown

[[Blightbeetle]] - [[Nissa, Who Shakes the World]] specifically, loathes this little guy, and he can stand up to anything green without trample and keep ticking.

[[Kitesail Freebooter]] - Counter-control measures mostly, but good against Flight Weenie builds early on too.

[[Knight of Autumn]] - This one exists mainly to deal with artifacts and enchantments such as an opposing [[Leyline of the Void]] that'd ruin our fun. Secondarily, it really annoys aggro decks when you keep recurring them to gain 4 life and put another body on the board.

[[Duress]] - Standard counter-control and counter-combo option for black.

[[The Elderspell]] - Shuts down superfriends builds and WAR Chandra.

[[Ashiok, Dream Render]] - See main board description.
