Ashen-Skin Zubera Discussion

Non-Linear on Shirei's Slaughterhouse

I am Shirei's biggest fan and would like to make some suggestions if I may,

If anything, I would swap out Ashen-Skin Zubera for Abyssal Nocturnus. You have a lot of quick discard in your deck, Abyssal Nocturnus would be a beatdown card that is a lot quicker than the Zubera.

there are also triggered abilites, such as Ashen-Skin Zubera or Mindslicer with a sac outlet. not that I would have ever run such a thing in standard

coughs unconvincingly

Thoughtpicker Witch + Mindslicer was redonkulous

What do you think about adding the zubera spirits? For B/R you have Ember-Fist Zubera, Ashen-Skin Zubera, and Burning-Eye Zubera. I personally like using the B/G zuberas together.

So, this isn't an amazing idea, but maybe a few Zubera? They're going to bodies to slow down your opponents and you get benefits from them dying. Notably Ashen-Skin Zubera can become discard at the end of your opponent's draw step under Pestilence. All the common rakdos Zubera have some advantage in this build though.

Well even if it doesn't work out maybe it'll give you some inspiration?

There are a lot of sub-par cards in the deck given how fast the format is and the other cards that are available in it. You also need to make your deck more focused around Devouring Greed, meaning cards that either benefit from being sacrificed to Devouring Greed or ones that create more than one creature to sac to it. These are some cards you should replace (mainly in the three-drop slot because you have way too many of those and the cards in those slots aren't great):

Searchlight Geist and Bygone Bishop. They're slow and very high on the curve. Lingering Souls and Spectral Procession are both better cards in the three-drop slot, no questions asked.

Not Forgotten. 2 mana for one token is a bad rate, especially when it's a situational effect.

Thief of Hope. I can see why you included it, but the way the deck is now it's hard to get enough value out of it to warrant a playset or even playing it at all. Have you thought of playing any Zubera (Ashen-Skin Zubera and Silent-Chant Zubera) over this and Not Forgotten? they'll lower your curve and they have an upside when they're sacrificed or killed in general.

Pheardemons on Devouring Greed with multiple Zuberas …

So let's just say Ember-Fist Zubera, Floating-Dream Zubera, and Ashen-Skin Zubera are all on the battlefield, and I cast Devouring Greed. All of the creatures die at the same time, so does each Zubera's death trigger automatically go to 3? Will I get to draw three cards, make target opponent discard three cards, and deal three damage to a target creature or player (with the effects of Devouring Greed of course), or do I have to have them trigger separately so that it'll happen in an order of one zubera trigger is at one, the second is at two, and the third is at three?

Pauper spirits with Tortured Existence is fun, especially using cards like Plagued Rusalka along with cards like Ashen-Skin Zubera, Dripping-Tongue Zubera and Floating-Dream Zubera. Thief of Hope is a great engine for life drain and getting spirits back to the hand.

If you're keeping the soulshift creatures, I would consider adding Shinen of Life's Roar as a finisher along with Wicked Akuba.

Gnaw to the Bone is solid for survivability, Death Denied is an arcane spell that can get some creature cards back to the hand.
