Control deck playing around Fifth Legion Trainer, Orc Clan Captain, and Odirniran Necromancer.

It's well known that cards like Galyn work great in combination with Odirniran Necromancer by putting buffed copies in your deck which can recycle a greater number of your deck's creatures. This deck compounds off that idea by also using Fifth Legion Trainer and Orc Clan Captain to buff Odirniran Necromancer's power before he resurrects a discarded creature.

Fifth Clan Captain, Redoran Forerunner, Rift Thane, Vivec City Pilgrim, Grisly Gourmet, Indoril Mastermind, and Thieves Guild Shadowfoot can all be recycled by the base Odirniran Necromancer.

Feasting Hunger, Galyn, Ash Berserker, Dushnikh Yal Archer, Battlefield Scrounger, and Hallowed Deathpriest can all be recycled by a +1 Necromancer.

Emperor's Blade and Gortwog can be recycled by a +2 Necromancer. Note that a +2 Necromancer can recycle and independently trigger an Ash Berserker for card draw. You don't necessarily want to always recycle the biggest possible creature-- it's important you bare in mind what tool you need most to deal with the current scenario.

Undying Dragon, Miraak, and Tyr can all be recycled by a +3 Necromancer.

A Galyn buffed Necromancer also gaining +3 could recycle anything in your deck, including Vigilant Giant. As such, don't worry too much about discarding good cards with Indoril Mastermind if a "worse" card is better for the current scenario.

The goal of the deck is to stall until an overwhelming board can be built using increasingly powerful Odirniran Necromancers until you can kill the enemy outright. As long as you think carefully about who you recycle the deck is not very difficult to execute.

As a control House deck this is probably a nightmare to craft. The good news is that almost all of these are exceptionally useful and versatile cards present in many different decks and as such are worth crafting. Only Battlefield Scrounger I would say is a relatively uncommonly used card, and you'll note that even here in a deck which can gain a lot of value from him I only include two copies.

I can give advice for replacing specific cards that you're missing if need be. More or less I would say the only essential cards are the eponymous Fifth Legion Trainer, Orc Clan Captain, and Odirniran Necromancer. Gortwog and Miraak are particularly nice after them.
