Altar's Reap Discussion

Welding Jar seems fitting and I'd probably go Opt over Altar's Reap to curve smoother. Maybe throw in a return target permanent card to protect your stuff from removal?

Spirits on Budget Thraximundar - EDH $50

1 week ago

Night's Whisper $1.58 is too much, Sign in Blood is $0.18 (and can target opponents), Read the Bones is $0.16 but I don't like the CMC3. Night's Whisper/Sign in Blood definitely the best. Brainstorm $0.70 is even better imo. Ponder is $2.30 so not a great option. Brainstorm/Sign in Blood best for budget. Altar's Reap don't like it either. Costly Plunder also not quite right.

Telling Time also not bad in budget $0.23 lets you scry one to bottom and replaces itself.

Dimir Signet $1.80 is so much. Talisman of Dominance $1.29 is better because it's CMC2. Also, Talisman of Indulgence $0.72. Fellwar Stone $1.25 but less predictable. I think the Signets are great, but $1.80 is tough.

Baleful Strix is $2.95 but pretty amazing, if you free up enough cash for him.

Archfiend of Depravity $1.01 can dominate this format, you've seen it from my Glissa, the Traitor deck.

Displacement Wave slows you down too much I feel, it can give you a Thraximundar alone. You control it with , but it's not going to work in 1 hour format, outside of the 1 hour feel it's pretty weak anyway.

Soul's Fire also feels wrong, a turn you cast Thraximundar you won't have mana for it, only a handful of creatures going to deal enough to be of consequence.

Shrieking Affliction is going to guarantee that 3x players are attacking you, and it's too slow to win you the game.

Nighthowler is a better Wight of Precinct Six (you can run both), he is CMC3, but he also counts your graveyard, and he also has Bestow if you have the extra mana (modular)

Consuming Aberration is a higher CMC, but he can also build the graveyards, remember that time SolomonsEfreet had him out. But high CMC. $1.90 too.

Can up you mana ramp with stuff like Mycosynth Wellspring $0.15,

You have Fleshbag Marauder & Merciless Executioner but missing their good buddy Slum Reaper $0.19.

Traveler's Amulet and Wanderer's Twig are great for color fixing and ramping. Wayfarer's Bauble goes onto the battlefield for CMC1 more.

Deadeye Navigator has lots of positive applications in your build, but he's $2.15. I won't list everyone, you can read the LTB/ETB guys, but Peregrine Drake is infinite ETB & infinite mana.

Murder always a nice multi-purpose removal in this format.

Far // Away $0.24 can also be handy.

You're mana source distribution is quite good 24% / 24% / 37% .

Vona's Hunger was pretty good when SolomonsEfreet played it.

Diabolic Tutor for Torment of Hailfire or the other half of Rite of Replication / Gray Merchant of Asphodel win-con.

Dark Petition is $2.32 but can assist with casting the Gray Merchant of Asphodel, I also don't mind Razaketh's Rite because I just cycle it for if it's drawn early on.

Desecration Demon might be fun, he's only CMC4.

I think your fairly balanced too, maybe a little too heavy on Sorcery, sub 1 for an instant or another creature or artifact.

One of the nice things with Thraximundar is you should get left alone early on because your not an immediate threat vs. someone like your Xenagos.

I wouldn't go counterspell (maybeboard has so many), won't work in this format effectively.

Havengul Lich has some recursion built in, but wouldn't say he's really that synergistic with Thraximundar but he can target others graveyards.

He's not a Xenagos, God of Revels but a good serviceable Commander in $50 budget. Crosis, the Purger no way lol, Sedris, the Traitor King would also work but he the same CMC anyway,

In fact, if you cast something like Altar's Reap with his ability (maybe you like spending too much mana) and sacrifice him as the adit iona cost, you'll still be able to spend one of each color of mana, and the spell will still resolve, because the cost was locked in and doesn't need him to stick around.

Ideas: Smothering Abomination Can't hit it with CoCo, but one heck of a draw engine in this deck. Costly Plunder/Altar's Reap You don't want too many non-creatures, but these could be useful in digging. Plus the cost of saccing a creature is just a bonus.

Have you considered running Heartless Summoning? Can help dump your creatures out faster, and Adaptive Automaton could be a lord and cancel out Heartless Summoning's debuff. Bone Splinters and Altar's Reap are other effective ways of dumping Abyssal, should Geth's Verdict and Victim of Night not be enough.

Altar's Reap combined with Death Watch?

Pal00ka on Gyrus Waker of Corpses Commander 2018

3 weeks ago

Your list gave me some great ideas for my brew so thanks!

I am including Costly Plunder, Merciless Resolve, and Altar's Reap since we can target and sacrifice our (soon-to-be-exiled) tokens.

Also the fang enchantments from Scourge, especially Dragon Fangs, have great synergy with Gyrus' scaling ability (and Rancor too) while enabling evasion.

Also Panharmonicon would be a great inclusion.

my thoughts: -1 Flayer of the Hatebound i think three is too much. -4 Generator Servant i just dont like the card in this deck. Relentless Dead looks like this has synergism. Festering Mummy i just double checked and opposite counters immediately cancel out so you can sacrifice the Festering Mummy with Altar's Reap to save an undying creature with a +1/+1 from dying. like you said, you may not need to worry about having your own removal spells. I have a black deck and I use four Duress for that reason. it is better than Thoughtseize when you do not target creatures anyway.
