Ashnod's Altar Discussion

Bezter on Pinball Wizard - Karona, False God EDH

Greater Auramancy is perfect for keeping your enchantments protected. Copy Enchantment could also be a nice fit, as there are many good candidates to copy.

Any reason why you have no artifacts? Chromatic Lantern can greatly help with mana fixing.

The Vows do a good job of protecting you from your own commander, but you could possibly also use an Assault Suit. Same kind of deal, but it prevents Karona from being sacrificed to your opponents things such as Brion Stoutarm, Viscera Seer, Ashnod's Altar, etc.

Hope these suggestions help!

It does seem like ever so much goodstuff, that being said, Sun Titan does synergize with Selfless Spirit, Fleshbag Marauder and Krosan Verge.

Adding a 5-7 more fetch lands would make the Sun Titan much more powerful aswell.

I do get the confusion though, the deck lacks a clear victory plan, instead relying on powerful cards to threaten the boardstate all by themself.I would advise to focus on a few engines and one of two victory conditions, in this deck Purphoros, God of the Forge and the token generators appears to be the strongest candidate.

It looks like the deck might struggle with it's mana curve aswell, having a high average cmc and possibly not enough ramp to get there in time.

A few concrete suggestions Emeria Shepherd + Sakura-Tribe Elder allows you to put every Plains into play from your library.

Hour of Promise is fantastic for fetching both Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers.

For card draw I would be remiss if I did not suggest Reassembling Skeleton/Bloodghast + Skullclamp

The Bloodghast would incresae in power in synergy with Ashnod's Altar + fetchlands aswell, resulting in sudden ramps of colorless mana from a single fetchland drop, enabling big plays far earlier.

Adding both the Bloodghast + Reassembling Skeleton would turn cards like Buried Alive and Entomb into powerful mana efficient tutors aswell.

On a last note Demonic Tutor is better than Beseech the Queen in every way, but most importantly because it denies information from your opponents.

To make room for some of these changes I would start by taking a long hard look at your planeswalkers, they appear to be slow to impact the board and few of them plays well with your general strategy.

Only one of them looks like it's powerful enough to matter on it's own, that would be Elspeth, Sun's Champion

How about Priest of Gix with Ashnod's Altar for a pay 3 life add CC to your mana pool?

If your goal is infinite tokens, maybe try Sliver Queen as your general and add Mana Echoes. This gives you infinite colorless mana and sliver tokens. You already play Ashnod's Altar, which gives infinite Purphy triggers.

Sweet commander!

Have you played with Cadaver Imp or Gravedigger? Apart from recursion, they're fun to loop with Altar of Dementia (or Altar of the Brood) and Deathrender.

To test with even more shenanigans, have you considered a package like this:

That gives you a sac outlet or two, a permanent source of recursion, a token-maker, and way to loop and clear opponents' boards of hexproof, indestructible, and shrouded creatures without going infinite.

Have fun playing!

Combo that fits:

Vizier of Remedies + Cauldron of Souls + any sac outlet (Ashnod's Altar to enable kayli) is quite infinite.

Thornbite Staff and sac engines like Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, or Viscera Seer makes it so you can machine gun their squad. It also goes inf with your Adarkar Valkyrie

If you are looking for creatures that are control, I suggest Fiend Hunter, Angel of Serenity, Faceless Butcher, Leonin Relic-Warder, Mesmeric Fiend, and Tidehollow Sculler. These are all decent control on their own, but pull double duty when paired with a sac outlet (which i feel you should have). Using the stack correctly, you play fiend hunter and target their ulamog with the first part of fh ability. While the ability is on the stack sacrifice fh and the second part of fh ability goes off and since the first part hasnt triggered yet, nothing is returned. Finally your opponent loses their ulamog.

I also think you could use some more recursion, such as Sheoldred, Whispering One, Hell's Caretaker Karmic Guide, and Reveillark. The last two are part of a group of infinite combos that get called either karmic guide and friends or reveillark and friends that you could add in.

Looks like you have a pretty solid deck as is, so I totally understand if you completely ignore my suggestions.
