This is the deck I piloted to a 10-2-3 record at GP Oakland (yeah 3 draws is pretty miserable). When BFZ was spoiled I started thinking about how to best abuse the 5 mana reanimation spells with bring to light. The list above was the result of tinkering around and playing ~50 matches with various incarnations of the deck on magic online.

Got a lot of puzzled looks during the Grand Prix whenever I played Monastery Siege or was Duressed game 1 with Necromatic Summons in my hand. Both of those cards performed really well for me over the course of the tournament. The Monastery Siege really shined in the mid-range and control matchups where you have time cycle extra lands (and if you are lucky setup an early Atarka for value).
