Altar's Reap Discussion
1 week ago
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 .

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

A quick rundown of the first changes I'd try to implement.
- Start / Finish
- Ministrant of Obligation
- Doomed Traveler
- Not Forgotten
- Lingering Souls
- Diabolic Intent
- Altar's Reap , Bankrupt in Blood , Blood Divination , Costly Plunder
- Severed Strands , Bone Splinters
- Torgaar, Famine Incarnate , Demon of Catastrophes
- Knight of the White Orchid
- Spectral Reserves
- Vessel of Malignity
- Vessel of Ephemera
- Debtors' Knell
- Ethereal Absolution
- Always Watching
- Mindwrack Demon
- I'd go down to singles of all the legendary creatures, if you add Diabolic Intent or Diabolic Tutor
You'll want some way to deal with artifacts and enchantments, possibly Seal of Cleansing in the sideboard.
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.

Gotcha. I would just go with sac outlets, then. Phyrexian Tower just went from like $60 to $10 because of the reprint. Infernal Offering , Recurring Nightmare , Rescue from the Underworld , Victimize , and Whisper, Blood Liturgist all offer recursion. Altar's Reap , Fling , Costly Plunder , Culling the Weak , Plunge into Darkness , Vicious Offering , Devour Flesh , Merciless Resolve , Sacrifice , Collateral Damage , Burnt Offering , Carrion , Fiery Conclusion , Spontaneous Combustion , and Dredge are all better instant-speed ways to leverage Xantcha. Or you could just Inferno or Starstorm to kill the board.

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:
- Squee, the Immortal
- Midnight Reaper
- Pitiless Plunderer
- Dragonskull Summit
- Costly Plunder
- Rix Maadi Reveler
- Reliquary Tower
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.
- * Command Tower : best budget land for multicolor Commander decks.
- * High Market : sac outlet.
- Smoldering Marsh
- Foreboding Ruins
- Tainted Peak
- Graven Cairns
- Shadowblood Ridge
- Ghost Quarter
- * Ashnod's Altar : sac outlet that makes mana.
- * Skullclamp : very good repeatable draw when you're sacing creatures.
- * Viscera Seer : one drop sac outlet.
- Carrion Feeder
- Yahenni, Undying Partisan
- * Diabolic Intent : $5 tutor to get any card that also sacs a creature.
- Altar's Reap
Repeatable value from sacing creatures:
Make Judith deadly:
Busted with Dark Depths:
- * Vampire Hexmage : sac it to remove all counters from Depths.
- Thespian's Stage : make a copy of Depths, the copy doesn't have any counters, sac it and get Marit Lage.
Reanimate lots of creatures:
- * Talisman of Indulgence : two drop mana rock.
- * Rakdos Signet
- Burnished Hart
- Blasphemous Act
- Rakdos Charm
If you like some of these suggestions I can help you to make cuts.
Good luck with your deck.
