Athreos, God of Passage Discussion

Hey there, I am really a fan of the idea, but I think 4 Athreos, God of Passage with ony 12 other creatures makes no sense.

What about a splitt 1-2 Athreos, God of Passage and 2-3 Sin Prodder ??

Firebones675 thanks for the in depth review.

I was trying to utilize alot of what i had as a base but dont mind buying some cards to improve my deck.I had all of those ally cards so it made sense to find a use for them, the main focus is lifegain/manipulation. I do think the counters would work well since i have a lot of cards that give all creatures abilities (deathtouch,vilgilance etc.) I did a lot of cutting on the creature side at least.

Do you think i should keep the enchanments and sorceries i have?

Maybes

I would have to purchase all of these, in theory what would be my best options?I think a few planeswalkers would make this much stronger. particularly Ajani Steadfast, Ajani, Caller of the Pride, and Sorin MarkovAngelic Accord Archangel of Thunedeff is an addAthreos, God of Passage I think this guy would be a great addition too

If you could give me some more tips on thinning the rest out and which to add that would be awesome.

Sacrifice abilities combined with Athreos, God of Passage and Pia's Revolution would work if you ran b/r/w enchantment deck. Player would have to choose between losing 6 life, or have creatures like Grim Guardian trigger it's own constellation, or if you sacrificed other enchantments, they would trigger their own constellation and other constellations the next turn. i.e Grim Guardian on the board, sacrifice Underworld Coinsmith play UC next turn, trigger both life gain and life drain.

Long story short, I don't think (only think) that sacrifices have any practical utility in your deck.Really cool concept though 1 upvote from me! Check out my own decks if you found this helpful, may have some enchantment inspiration for you!

I do hope The Professor's prediction comes true, I never was playing magic at the time of Dominara even though I do know a lot of the lore now.

I never got to play with slivers early on. I only discovered slivers about 3 years ago (Started magic at around Journey into Nyx and mainly played with a lot of theros stuff first) when I had a friend who happened to have some m14 slivers and I one day I traded for some such as a Galerider Sliver and 2 much older Russian Sidewinder Slivers who he originally got from someone else I think. I didn't even know at the time that there was more older ones but I found these interesting and wanted the ones he had.

Later on when where I lived actually got a game store that opened and had started to doing Fnms had I found out from two people the format of commander who both owned Sliver Overlord edh decks that there were more slivers. At this point I was practically already playing with a commander deck lol, as my casual magic deck was a deck featuring cards like Prophet of Kruphix, Heroes' Bane, Arcanis the Omnipotent, Horizon Chimera, and a bunch of other things. This became later my first commander deck with Vorel of the Hull Clade (Now it's an Atraxa, Praetors' Voice deck with Vorel still in it btw) and I started to also plan a Sliver Overlord deck.

One of the two I mentioned at my lgs even in time decided to sell his sliver overlord deck because he never got to play it enough, so I traded for some older slivers like Sinew Sliver, Brood Sliver, Fungus Sliver, and a couple others he had. He however wanted to keep Sliver Legion, Sliver Queen, Sliver Overlord and Sliver Hivelord.

I have my own Sliver Overlord, and Sliver Hivelord now but I still need to in time buy the others. Then I got to acquire some of the lands to finish my deck. I regret earlier trades that I have done however, use to have a Wooded Foothills, Windswept Heath,Flooded Strand, Polluted Delta, Steam Vents and Temple Garden but I traded them all away thinking I wouldn't need them, and I sure was very wrong. It was rather silly of me still being new to the game sort of then.

Like I even opened at one point a Windswept Heath expedition not knowing it's entire value but I sleeved it still because they looked nice. I later discovered and sold it for store credit at a store and bought a bunch of cards with it like Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Omnath, Locus of Mana, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, I think you get the point. All these big splashy cards to go into my casual magic decks to use on my friends. Then I later when I started playing magic a bit more seriously it rather sucked to realize I had no use for them in standard or modern or wanted to use them for edh any longer. That store even had Sliver Legion and Sliver Queen but I didn't yet know about slivers :(

Going to now anyways buy them next once I first open a bunch of Amonkhet for standard stuff perhaps. Although it would be nice to see a reprint for the Sliver Legion. The next set after Amonkhet however though has turned out to be one called Ixalan I think it was spelled? This looks to be a mesoamerican inspired plane so there's no hope for slivers in September/January. More likely will get a few merfolk instead is my guess. However maybe the block after in the summer could be dominara? I would live to see slivers as first of all I would enjoy playing them in standard as I never got to do that earlier. Then anything for edh would be awesome. Currently have my Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, Sliver Overlord although the lands are fairly budget, and Athreos, God of Passage for my edh decks. I am trying to upgrade them all slowly over time as I'm as well upgrading my very costly modern infect deck (Need Noble Hierarch playset and 5 more green related fetchlands) and a little before that my b/g delirium deck for standard (rather absurd its more than my Atraxa deck in $ right now thanks to a playset of Grim Flayer, Liliana, the Last Hopes, Blooming Marsh, and what not making it like over $470 I believe, use to be a bit more value but it's falling). As you can see I'm trying to slowly upgrade rather a lot of things even though my standard I'm happy with for now, but I do hope to finish Slivers maybe by the fall is my guess?

Now if you thought you were ranting then that is nothing compared to all of this! This is much worse so I do apologize. (Longest TappedOut comment I have made I think in the little more than a year on here now lol).

Mario21 I used to run Phyrexian Reclamation and Athreos, God of Passage. In fact the deck originally started with him as the Commander. By my count that's 6 new cards you're suggesting I add. That is going to be hard to do. I don't know what to take out. On a side note Bruna, the Fading Light and Gisela, the Broken Blade were removed for Angel of Sanctions and Aven Mindcensor. Faith's Reward was removed for Cruel Reality. Radiant Purge was removed for Forsake the Worldly. Without going into greater detail all of these changes were made just to see how they might perform. What would you suggest I take out for the other 6 cards?

If this is meant to be a competitive deck, you really need to run cheap removal like Path to Exile or Fatal Push mainboard. Also, maybe you could find a place for Athreos, God of Passage in here? He's a ton of fun and either bolts your opponent repeatedly or gives you your dudes back and lets you sac them again.

I did not really look through the comments to see if this had been addressed or not but Athreos, God of Passage would be super fun here in my opinion.
