Altar's Reap Discussion

Looks fun (for one of the players)! Maybe a couple draw spells? Altar's Reap seems like it'd fit.

oh ha sorry, don't know how I missed panharmonicon. personally I like skull clamp in decks like this, either buffs a creature for another point of damage or is a is a one mana Altar's Reap. there are a lot of tribal decks in commander so you might have better luck with Door of Destinies over coat of arms, food for thought. another possible win con you could try out is Breath of Fury.

Maybe Mausoleum Guard instead of Lingering Souls so that you have another target for Altar's Reap or morbid trigger and then getting the two tokens.

LostAlgorithm on Story Deck - Westvale's Profane Piety

Alright! Updated again!

I like the Teysa, Orzhov Scion suggestion. I think it meshes in a lot of ways. I added in Skirsdag High Priest to leverage the sacrifice mechanic a bit more as well as the one from Altar's Reap. It should give me some larger tokens too, which is nice. It also gives me more Black creatures I can use with Teysa's second ability, giving even more tokens.

I decided to try taking Gather the Townsfolk out completely so that I could go full Raise the Alarm. Do you think this is a good idea? I can't see the Fateful Hour effect from Gather being one that's as useful to me as simply being able to spawn soldier tokens whenever I need them.

I also took out Anointed Procession. I like the effect, but I only had one in and I felt other cards would be better able to more consistently contribute in that 1 slot. Is this a good choice?

Duress is back to being Thoughtseize. I'm just nervous about having all the damage to self effects, but this might just be because I'm new still.

For Brimaz, King of Oreskos, I just don't like that he's a kitty cat, lol. I did feel my deck could use some more "religiousy" themes though, so I put in Mikaeus, the Lunarch, who I think should be able to benefit from all the mana the Crypt Ghasts should be creating. With all my tokens, he should be able to provide some nice buffs. Or, if I just need a big body, he can do that too.

I took Doomed Traveler and Spectral Procession down by 1 as well to fit in some of the above cards. Westvale Abbey  Flip went down by 1 as well, mostly because I think my tokens are overall becoming more of a threat even without the flip. I still like it as a possible route to go though.

I think that's about it as far as what changed. Let me know what you think!

Podkomorka: thanks for your comments! =)

Sprout Swarm is nice, thanks for letting me know about that one.

Altar's Reap crossed my mind before, and you're probably right. I do need some draw-power in here.

As for removal, Deathspore Thallid is doing that for me for now, but I could put some actual removal in the sideboard, for security.

Also: I've been considering making this five-color, and adding Volt Charge and Wings of Velis Vel or Trickery Charm.

You should also have 4 Altar's Reap

Costly Plunder is a strictly better Altar's Reap. I'd include some looting/rummaging as well, a la Cathartic Reunion, Faithless Looting, and Jalum Tome. Key to the City also seems spectacular, both for dumping a creature to reanimate as well as protecting Alesha.

PS I just discovered that now Costly Plunder is strictly better than Altar's Reap.. doesn't change much because I don't have noncreature artifacts right now, but I could try pairing it with something like Dire Fleet Hoarder
