Altar's Reap Discussion

HashMasta on Slimefoot, the Stowaway

I noticed a lot of this deck revolves around a lot of counters. maybe add some proliferate engines like Contagion Engine, Core Prowler, and Contagion Clasp

Druidic Satchel is a good card for this as well

You could use basic mana rocks like Sol Ring Golgari Signet or your more expensive ones like Mana Vault, Thran Dynamo, Mana Crypt and bla bla bla :p

I also think you could find room for Skullclamp instead of Altar's Reap

of course you will need Doubling Season and Parallel Lives when you get the money.

Night Soil would be a good graveyard hate card for this deck

Westvale Abbey  Flip would be a great include, along with Gaea's Cradle for when you really have money lol

Craterhoof Behemoth is gonna be a win con if you can get it off. would get some Chord of Calling, Worldly Tutor, and Green Sun's Zenith to make sure it happens. Natural Order and Survival of the Fittest would work to

would also get Demonic Tutor Diabolic Tutor and stuff like that.

I know i was rambling with ideas but just thoughts not necessaries (except a few).

Cartel Aristocrat and Spark Elemental are your friends, and they help to keep the curve low so you can swap a couple of lands for Altar's Reap

True, Bloodghast would probably benefit my deck, but I was originally running this deck with 4x Tormented Soul and it became a pain to not be able to block anything. I already have Nether Traitor so I don't think I want to drop 65 bucks on Bloodghast's.

I forgot to add them but Smallpox and Altar's Reap/Costly Plunder were in the first iteration of this deck but I moved them to the sideboard.

Devour Flesh didn't make it into the deck but it was definitely an honorable mention.

As for Voldaren Pariah  Flip, I love her. She is brutal and will trigger both sides of my deck mechanic for sure, but I am going to save her for the Grixis commander deck that I am building. That deck has the recipe for some fun and brutal combos. It started as the Mindseize Commander deck but I'm making Thraximundar my Commander and Nekusar, the Mindrazer his Lieutenant. Draw, discard, madness, sacrifice, flashback/other play from graveyard effects. It should be one hell of a deck.

I've made decks like this before and I must say that Bloodghast is pretty much a must have in them. I'm also a big fan of Plunge into Darkness, Smallpox Altar's Reap, and/or Devour Flesh in this kind of deck. Plunge into Darkness kinda fills both roles of Altar's Reap and Devour Flesh by itself, but they have their own advantages and disadvantages (no life loss with Reap, can target opponent with Devour Flesh as well as yourself, etc).

I've also been playing with using Voldaren Pariah  Flip for this kind of strategy but she can be a little tough to build around since she rewards self discard as well (cuz of Madness).

In my experience, from a certain point in time and forward, all my Tiny Leaders decks show as illegal, and most cards show as illegal, when they are not. I think it's because a lot of cards have had their 'Legal in Tiny Leaders' tag removed. For example Ammit Eternal is a Tiny Leaders legal card, but it doesn't show that tag, and Altar's Reap does show the Legal Tiny Leaders tag.

You could do a self harm deck with stuff like Sign in Blood and Altar's Reap
