Altar's Reap Discussion

Night's Whisper $1.58 is too much, Sign in Blood is $0.18 (and can target opponents), Read the Bones is $0.16 but I don't like the CMC3. Night's Whisper/Sign in Blood definitely the best. Brainstorm $0.70 is even better imo. Ponder is $2.30 so not a great option. Brainstorm/Sign in Blood best for budget. Altar's Reap don't like it either. Costly Plunder also not quite right.
Telling Time also not bad in budget $0.23 lets you scry one to bottom and replaces itself.
Dimir Signet $1.80 is so much. Talisman of Dominance $1.29 is better because it's CMC2. Also, Talisman of Indulgence $0.72. Fellwar Stone $1.25 but less predictable. I think the Signets are great, but $1.80 is tough.
Baleful Strix is $2.95 but pretty amazing, if you free up enough cash for him.
Displacement Wave slows you down too much I feel, it can give you a Thraximundar alone. You control it with , but it's not going to work in 1 hour format, outside of the 1 hour feel it's pretty weak anyway.
Shrieking Affliction is going to guarantee that 3x players are attacking you, and it's too slow to win you the game.
Can up you mana ramp with stuff like Mycosynth Wellspring $0.15,
Murder always a nice multi-purpose removal in this format.
Far // Away $0.24 can also be handy.
You're mana source distribution is quite good 24% / 24% / 37% .
Desecration Demon might be fun, he's only CMC4.
I think your fairly balanced too, maybe a little too heavy on Sorcery, sub 1 for an instant or another creature or artifact.
I wouldn't go counterspell (maybeboard has so many), won't work in this format effectively.

In fact, if you cast something like Altar's Reap with his ability (maybe you like spending too much mana) and sacrifice him as the adit iona cost, you'll still be able to spend one of each color of mana, and the spell will still resolve, because the cost was locked in and doesn't need him to stick around.

Ideas: Smothering Abomination Can't hit it with CoCo, but one heck of a draw engine in this deck. Costly Plunder/Altar's Reap You don't want too many non-creatures, but these could be useful in digging. Plus the cost of saccing a creature is just a bonus.

Have you considered running Heartless Summoning? Can help dump your creatures out faster, and Adaptive Automaton could be a lord and cancel out Heartless Summoning's debuff. Bone Splinters and Altar's Reap are other effective ways of dumping Abyssal, should Geth's Verdict and Victim of Night not be enough.

Your list gave me some great ideas for my brew so thanks!
Also Panharmonicon would be a great inclusion.

my thoughts: -1 Flayer of the Hatebound i think three is too much. -4 Generator Servant i just dont like the card in this deck. Relentless Dead looks like this has synergism. Festering Mummy i just double checked and opposite counters immediately cancel out so you can sacrifice the Festering Mummy with Altar's Reap to save an undying creature with a +1/+1 from dying. like you said, you may not need to worry about having your own removal spells. I have a black deck and I use four Duress for that reason. it is better than Thoughtseize when you do not target creatures anyway.
