Altar's Reap Discussion

Argy on B/U Zambies

Sorry, I've been on holidays and haven't had much time to test builds.

Are you aware that you will lose a lot of the cards that make this deck work, after rotation in a couple of weeks?

Specifically these ones:

Altar's Reap
Compelling Deterrence
Choked Estuary
Diregraf Colossus
Graf Harvest
Grasp of Darkness
Relentless Dead

Basically Zombie Tribal decks are going to be a lot weaker in two weeks time.

You might want to think about building a different Tribe, like Merfolk.

ok, so a few cards that are not that good in the deck, first Waste Not you gain nothing out of this card, you have no discard and Champion of the Parish you may have a few humans in here but i believe there are better cards. you could add one more Hidden Stockpile seeing as it is a very good card in the deck. you will need a card that can create more tokens as well Lingering Souls could be good. a few other good cards are Bone Splinters and Altar's Reap maybe even Nantuko Husk.

Even in a sacrifice deck, cards like Bone Splinters and Altar's Reap are bad because counterspells exist. Play something like Path to Exile etc.

In a 20 land deck, 5-6 drops are gonna be very hard to cast.

Why no aristocrats or recursion?

first of all:

modern is a fast format. 5 and 4 mana spells or abilities that are 3 colored, like you have, are not likely to even hit the battlefield because you'll die before it even happens (in most cases). if those 5 & 4 drops are not important to you, i suggest removing them from the deck, and putting creatures like Bile Urchin, Bloodbriar, Bloodflow Connoisseur, Bontu the Glorified, Child of Thorns , Corpse Hauler, Doomed Necromancer, Frostling, Mortician Beetle

spells like Altar's Reap, Bone Splinters, Collateral Damage, Crack the Earth, Eldritch Evolution, Fling, Footsteps of the Goryo, Infernal Plunge, Plunge into Darkness

noncreature permanents like Demonic Appetite, Evolutionary Leap, Quest for the Gravelord

and sideboarding Boggart Forager

i'll keep searching for you tomorrow, hope this helps for now

Penthoplayer So I've been doing a lot of testing... The 2 of in card draw isn't really doing as much work as I'm wanting it to... I'm not sure if I need to go to 3 of or what. I've also tried running CD spells like Night's Whisper, Altar's Reap, Succumb to Temptation but yea. Also, tried out Harmonize and Wall of Omens. Gonna try out 3 of's and 4 of's, I don't think it'll be worth it as a 1 of. I have found that Obzedat has been doing work for me online and at my LGS though.

TheSurgeon, thanks so much for your suggestions. Just like a true surgeon, you identified what's not working, cut it and replaced it with something better! I have taken on board some of your suggestions, and have just ordered Cryptbreaker and Altar's Reap. I would lOVE to use Fatal Push and as ImtheRealBear suggested Rise of the Dark Realms but right now my budget can't stretch to those, I have taken not to aquire them at a later date. Finally, what would Diregraf Colossus take the place of? Thanks both TheSurgeon & ImtheRealBear for your help.

I see you upvoted my zombie deck, first of all. Thank you! Since you have seen it, some of these mechanics may look faniliar. For all intents and purposes, you're running a Gy-spawn deck. The more creatures you have for this to put in your gy, (and the more ways to get them there) the better. Especially, when you ult-out with Liliana.

That being said, Cryptbreaker over Wight. Wight never really gets big enough, and dies when Liliana does her thing. Try flooding the board with threats to keep your opponent distracted. Furthermore, Breaker allows draw; produces tokens, and wouldn't be badly coupled with 2x Diregraf Colossus when discarding Crawlers (another token generator)

I believe Tattered Mummy or Perilous Myr would be a good fit over Blood Scrivener. With Myr You can target your opponent or a creature if more removal is something you're going for, but isn't a zombie. That's more on personal preference and availability.

Your removal for your build is well chosen, but if you decide to try my zombie based suggestions, I would replace Go for the Throat for Fatal Push if budget allows; or a sorcery speed budget Bone Splinters. Tragic Slip (over Grasp) is also awesome post-combat when you have a Z-token or Crawler die, and is one of my favorite 1-cost removal spells.

You can cut the land by 2. Offering 2x additional slots for 2x Altar's Reap for draw since Scrivener causes lifeloss and is more conditional. The deck's CMC would be lower as well, offering faster play and more playable slots as the land is adjusted accordingly.

These are gust suggestions, of course, and a lot of them. I would take no offense to a rejection to any or all of them. Mono-black is not my fort, and I will own that, but the zombie engine idea you have touched on is too good for this build not to use. If you have any questions or need clarification (I get wordy), please don't be afraid to ask!
