Bontu the Glorified Discussion

eulogy on How much combo is too much? *HELP NEEDED*

17 hours ago

yeah, the combo shines if you include Grave Pact / Grave Betrayal / Dictate of Erebos.another combo piece to this: Diregraf Colossus. endless zombies incoming.on the other side, if you can pull the combo off with your Blood Artist / Zulaport Cutthroat, you instantly win the game.I play 38 lands and 3 artifacts that create mana. In my case it's enough if I don't draw really bad.If you want to cut smthn, I would cut Bontu the Glorified. It's a sac outlet but for real.. it's not a really good one.Ever After in addition is a really good spell to get two extra creatures out of your graveyard.Lim-Dul the Necromancer can maybe be a good addition too.

Nice updates. I still feel that Bloodline Keeper is a mainboard worthy card. A stream of Sac-able tokens can keep your hand full, while his flip ability can put the game out of reach for creature decks. Bontu the Glorified also works well here IMO.

belugawhaleonthefloor on Magma Spray an Indestructible?

6 days ago

Let's say Bontu the Glorified has 4 -1/-1 counters on him. Can I Magma Spray to kill him? What about if he didn't have any counters and his toughness was still 6; could I Cut him and then Magma Spray to finish him off. Because magma spray states that if the creature would die this turn, its exiled instead. But after taking 6 damage, Bantu wouldn't die because he's indestructible. So how does damage vs indestrucble work/stack up?

Added Bontu the Glorified... tested him out and he seems a real good addition to this deck :)

Atm also testing out Chandra, Torch of Defiance instead of Glorybringer

CJZOMBIEKILLERCJ I think you may be on to something. The best rationale I have was that Hanweir Garrison creates human tokens to pump Thalia's Lieutenant and sacrifice to Bontu the Glorified. I'm tempted to add green for Renegade Rallier, Grim Flayer, and Tireless Tracker.

Oh, and I happened to have the set of Inspiring Vantage, lol. Not a great reason to settle on the deck I suppose. Thanks for the feedback!

I love black in standard and will give some suggestion, although I like the core of the deck.

I'm not sure about Dreamstealer in this deck, although he has menace, he has to wait until turn 4 to attack and then he only hits for 1. I also think if you get rid of Dreamstealer then its better to go down x2 Key to the City. Finally I would remove the Lay Bare the Heart and Harsh Scrutiny and put them sideboard and go towards removal, to help you're creatures get in combat damage, such as Never / Return, Murder or Grasp of Darkness

If you're going to go aggro, then i feel Bearer of Silence would be better and adding in 2 Blighted Fen and 4 Ifnir Deadlands will help with his sacrifice ability, and give you utility lands also.

If you dont want to go Bearer of Silence because he's just about to rotate, then Bontu the Glorified could fit well into this deck, as he hits hard, allows life drain, and you can easily sacrifice a Scrapheap Scrounger or Dread Wanderer and get them back from the graveyard anyway.

another good black threat is Glint-Sleeve Siphoner as it could allow you to draw cards, but should be able to attack in the first few turns due to menace.

I'm not sure how good Ammit Eternal has been for you, but hes always very underwhelming and when i play him and you may want to swap him for one of the above suggestions.

Seems like a number of people have a similar idea. I like Bontu the Glorified in a similar deck to this - see A Horse for Bontu.

Cool concept :). Have you considered going more of an aristocrats-angle with Zulaport Cutthroat, Hidden Stockpile, and sack outlets like Bontu the Glorified and Yahenni, Undying Partisan? Anointed Procession could also make an excellent top of the curve, and getting two or three tokens each time you cast something could close out the game pretty quickly. Anyways, that's just something to chew on. I hope this goes well for you :)
