Remove target card in a graveyard from the game. Put a 1/1 white and black Spirit creature token with flying into play.
I totally agree with you, agevi001. I had Beckon Apparition in here to make tokens, maybe try to fit it back in? I feel like the Gift of Immortality doesn't 100% fit here anymore. The only creature I seem to ever use it for is Crypt Ghast . And it's always the first card I sideboard out. As far as Hero's Downfall , I just can't seem to find anybody willing to trade them.
This looks like it could be a fun deck. I think a few small improvements could go a long way. I would drop Basilica Guards , Syndic of Tithes , Last Breath , Beckon Apparition , Revoke Existence can go to the SB, and drop Ultimate Price since you already have Doom Blade and Hero's Downfall . Add more Thrull Parasite , Kingpin's Pet , Obzedat, Ghost Council , Read the Bones , and Tithe Drinker . Of course Thoughtseize will help if you can afford it. I like the initial idea, I just think you need to do some consolidating to help your consistency.
Interesting, I like it for the most part. I'd run at least 3 Nameless Inversion to make that Thief of Hope combo more reliable. Also I highly recommend that you consider adding Long-Forgotten Gohei and maybe Beckon Apparition .
The Spectral Procession is almost unplayable in this deck due to it having two colors. I would suggest taking it out and replacing it with another gather of the townsfolk and three Beckon Apparition .
Gwyllion Hedge-Mage replaces Beckon Apparition - Was pretty handily the worst card in the cube. Not stoked by the hedgemage as its power level in mono-black or whiteless black splashes is very low. But there is no way it is worse than Beckon Apparition.
Sturdy Hatchling replaces Wistful Selkie - this color combo has depressingly terrible hybrid commons and uncommons. The Selkie's color intense cost made it a difficult splash and there were no decks in which the card draw was good enough to make up for the mediocre body. I'll give the hatchling a try as it could be, at the very least, a potent sideboard card against removal heavy decks.
Mulldrifter replaces Opportunity - Opportunity is just way to slow and Blue has become much more tempo based than controlling. Being able to draw cards while simultaneously deploy even a modest threat will hopefully be more of a fit to the viable blue strategies. Green ramp decks were enough to get to six easily but they were better paired with any of the other three colors because of better removal options, and the double blue cost made Opportunity too difficult to cast in the three color base-green decks. I also haven't seen any decks that would not prefer Foresee over Opportunity , which I don't believe will be the case with Mulldrifter .
does that work?.... the Token copy of the pack rat adds to devotion? The mana cost of the rat is copied? 1/1 spirit token from Beckon Apparition will not add to devotion will it (even though it says "white/Black Spirit Token")?... interesting....
High Priest of Penance has actually been pretty amazing, especially with Gift of Immortality on it. But if I swap out Seraph of the Sword , that could leave me somewhat vulnerable to fliers. Maybe use the Beckon Apparition in place of the Seraph and use Basilica Screecher over the Priest for some more extort? That would lower my curve a fair bit and still give me some fliers.
