Athreos, God of Passage Discussion

Okay, that's what I thought too. The decklist is updated and I do like that recursion combo with Bloodsoaked Champion and Athreos, God of Passage. I used to have Bloodsoaked Champion in my original draft of this deck but dropped him for more draw and utility. I really enjoyed playing him so I think I'm going to add a playset of BSC and a singleton of Athreos to the sideboard to sub them in on games two and three.

another great card is Athreos, God of Passage had him and a bloodsoaked champion in play and it was so funny, swing in 2, he blocks bsc, it dies ask opponent if he pays 3 life or it goes to my hand, he stares at the card for like 20 secs and realizes the raid ability, he kinda laughs and says guess he goes back to your hand. Play bsc again and sac him to viscera seer, ask him again, he decides to put it in my hand again. do this 2 more times, drained 4 life and and setup my top card.

Not sure if you realize this, but tokens don't really do much with Athreos, God of Passage because they don't exist outside of the battlefield so opponents don't have to pay life and it'll still be dead.

Enduring Ideal is a really nice way to get your enchantments out on the field, but isn't very synergistic with Daxos, Blightcaster, or Celestial Ancient.

Have you considered curses such as Curse of Exhaustion, Curse of Misfortunes, Curse of Thirst, Trespasser's Curse, or Cruel Reality?

Athreos, God of Passage and Debtors' Knell are also really nice reanimators.

Starfield of Nyx and Opalescence are also really nice in enchantment decks.

Sphere of Safety, Blind Obedience, and Koskun Falls can also help build up your pillowfort.

You also can run Extinguish All Hope for a wipe that doesn't affect the spirits summoned by Daxos.

Worship and is nice as well.

Ravos, Soultender is a nice pump/recursion creature and Athreos, God of Passage could fit nicely in here too.

If you want card advantage, isn't Wall of Omens (or something similar(Kitchen Finks)) better than Athreos, God of Passage as it works with flicker?

I tried Athreos, God of Passage as a commander briefly.. but found that what would happen is someone would take 9 damage and then give me back 3 apostles. At that point unless you have another 3 you are stuck.

Might be worth trying him again, but in the 99. But the only issue would be I would never be able to tutor for him using apostles

I love the idea of a Shadowborn Apostle deck, and this did not disappoint at all. Athreos, God of Passage might be a good addition to help with Apostle recursion, too. Either they give you back all of your apostles when you summon a demon, or they lose 18 life.
