Altar's Reap Discussion

PhthisisClock on Any love for Bankrupt In ...

Altar's Reap does look a little tastier... my build does produce massive amounts of tokens (hit for 60 last night, for example, in a grindy midrange golgari matchup) but I like the instant speed. Plus, I already run Scarscale Ritual , so maybe I can do without the 3rd card that Bankrupt provides.

The first problem is the sorcery speed of it: it doesn't let you sacrifice doomed creatures. For example, Altar's Reap lets you block with a critter, then sac it to pay the cost or, sac a creature that's about to eat a Lightning Bolt .

Then, there's the two creature part of the cost. If you're running Bloodghast or other creatures that don't care about getting killed, you can play the far superior Cathartic Reunion instead.

If you have effects that trigger when you sacrifice things, like Dragon Appeasement or Ruthless Deathfang , you'd probably rather have something like Viscera Seer .

Unless you have death triggers, I don't see how it's better than the draw 2 cards options.

I've noticed a lot of sacrifices centric decks using Altar's Reap when I think Costly Plunder is strictly better please correct me if I'm wrong.

A quick rundown of the first changes I'd try to implement.



You'll want some way to deal with artifacts and enchantments, possibly Seal of Cleansing in the sideboard.

You don't have valuable many-for-ones ( Merciless Eviction , eg); if you want more play versus aggro decks you might add some. Languish , Dusk / Dawn , things like that.

Also you don't have exile-versions of removal, but white and black are good for it, if you wanted to give up some of the "sacrifice for insane value" plan. Utter End and its variants.

Hello! Wow, I really like this deck. It is unique and has a lot of ways to bring back cards. That being said, there is still room for improvement. For example, you have a lot of cards that require four mana to cast. You might want to reduce the amount of cards that require more mana to cast. In addition, you do not have much draw power, which may cause your hands to stagnate. I would suggest getting cards like: Cemetery Recruitment or Altar's Reap which can allow you to draw cards. Another good card to get is Lord of the Undead , which can buff your other zombies and also be a permanent re animator for your deck. He is $13, but he is well worth it. Those are all my suggestions for now, if you want you can take a look at my deck Vast Amounts of Zombie Tokens if you want more ideas. Take care and you get a +1. :D

Hey, this is a good start. Actually a really well made with the restriction of using most cards from only GRN and RNA, good job, nice Dark Depths :)

Budget cards that are currently in Standard mostly from DOM, GRN, RNA sets to consider adding:

For more upgrades you're going to however want to move away from just GRN and RNA cards, but this doesn't mean you have to spend a lot of money for upgrades. There's budget ($5 or less per card) upgrades you can make. I put a star (*) in front of the best upgrades of these suggestions.


Sac outlets:

Recurable creatures:

Repeatable value from sacing creatures:

Make Judith deadly:

Busted with Dark Depths:

Reanimate lots of creatures:


If you like some of these suggestions I can help you to make cuts.

Good luck with your deck.
