Altar of Dementia Discussion

Ditch Pongify for either an X Card Draw spell or Curse of the Swine. Ditch all the mana rocks. Add in Phyrexian Altar. Also Altar of Dementia + Rooftop Storm + Gravecrawler = game.

Might look at Volrath's Stronghold for a land. Ever think of using Syphon Flesh. Ever think of putting in cards like Illusionist's Bracers or Rings of Brighthearth ? Think I like Rings better in this deck. Also since you have blue you could run Fabricate too (to get Altar). Something like Flesh-Eater Imp could also one shot someone /w ease - wouldn't even need RoofTop Storm (Imp, Equip Boots, sac some shit, swing dead (easier if you say have Warchief out).

Just some ideas.

Throne of the God-Pharaoh and Altar of the Brood are some of my most recent additions to my Rhys deck and I love both of them! I also like Altar of Dementia for when your board state is huge and they board wipe. Why not get something out of a board wipe, right? Either way I really like your deck +1 from me

Helm of Possession is good for trading a saproling for whatever and can sac your Sporemound.

Altar of Dementia can sac him after you've milled everybody by sacing infinite saprolings (win con even if your boss isn't on the field).

Helix Pinnacle for those infinite forests. Wow, that one sure has gone up in price.

I like this list, cards to consider are Deathrender, Altar of Dementia, Skirge Familiar, Deathrender, a sac outlet, garna and any 2 dudes goes infinite. Skirge familiar is good in general and also goes infinite with thermopod/phyrexian altar garna and 4 other dudes (red from land ditch 4 play garna, sac for red repeat). And aod is strong in garna because of how much pseudo draw it can give you to a wincon even outside of a combo

Notable Exclusions:

Nettle Sentinel: is the first suggestion i hear often. but it's just not very impactful as a one-off. when you have three and Heritage Druid you're in the money, but as a one-off it's not great.

Doubling Season: meh, yes this deck generates lots of tokens, but there aren't a lot of great ways to generate oppressive value off of them in an explosive manner. Obviously I can sac them for any number of benefits, but most require mana or large bodies (like Altar of Dementia. Right now its on the maybe pile, in large part because it (fairly) paints a target on me the minute I play it.

Beast Whisperer: i don't have one, it will go in once I can get my hands on it.

Phyrexian Arena: will probably take the place of Deathreap Ritual once i get another one, also thinking of Necropotence in this slot

Fecundity: with Grave Pact effects i'd rather not mitigate the value i generate off of saccing my creatures with opponent card draw

Ashnod's Altar: got booted for Perilous Forays. colorless mana isn't great in this deck, as most of my board is very cheap and costs colored mana. can't rely on cards like Gemstone Array to turn colorless into colored mana, so its out. It is a free sac outlet, which is very good, particularly with the dictate effects. on the maybe board pending some playtesting

This is much better.

I still have a few suggestions though.

  • I don't clearly see any win conditions other than a normal beat down. So you're either a genius or I'm missing something.
  • I recommend adding some "insurance" for your vehicles in the form of Darksteel Forge and Leonin Abunas.
  • For a lot of crew quickly I'd suggest Midnight Guard + Presence of Gond it also helps with the life gain upon entry you have.
  • What is your plan for Altar of Dementia?

I love the name change BTW.
