Bontu the Glorified Discussion

@xxSkedz24xx: Blood Artist almost got cut because I do a surprisingly little amount of nickel and diming opponents with this deck. I don't like Zulaport because it only affects my own creatures and not everyone elses (which matters in my meta).

Viscera Seer will likely return in due time but I am testing a more aggressive build and adding Lifecrafter's Bestiary gave me the scry plus card draw. I have also considered Bontu the Glorified.

If you look at Standard right now there's a deck that wins consistently with tokens, Zombies. Consider converting your deck into B/W Zombies with a main token theme. Wayward Servant can add a significant amount of life loss and life gain when duplicating Zombies tokens. Servant in combination with Zulaport Cutthroat would give you damage from both angles when Zombie tokens are created and when they die.

I suggest Zombies because they have a ridiculously good lord package right now with Lord of the Accursed and Liliana's Mastery. Both these cards give Zombie tokens a lot of reach. Because you care about making tokens Dark Salvation can pull double duty as a token maker and removal spell.

Possible List trying best to keep it budget (Untested):

I've included Cryptbreaker even though he is $4 a piece which might be out of your price range. He can be a constant Zombie token maker and a draw engine when using Zombies which is exactly what you want. Procession into Mastery does create a lot of power on the battlefield.

Good luck with your deck.

Anyhow, Bone Splinters will let you get rid of your opponents creatures and trigger Zulaport Cutthroat, Hidden Stockpile, Bontu the Glorified and let you cast Bone Picker. And Hidden Stockpile is, like i mentioned above, a "better option" than Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip. Sorry, forgot to add that.

Thank you guys for help!Wendigo4481, what creatures would you say to remove to get to 16 creatures. As pf right now i believe Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip and Bontu the Glorified should be remove. As soon as my opponent sees them they are removed from the field. That would bring me to 21. I would think to remove Bone Picker as well as in my meta most has R/U control or B/W Zombies and it is removed quickly.

As for puttig cards in there place, i will be trying to get Sram's Expertise and Dusk / Dawn. I may add in either Servo Exhibition for some early tokens or Pious Evangel  Flip for some extra Zulaport Cutthroats in the deck (as they are destroyed quick as soon as people see what my deck is)

PS - I suppose it can't be hit my Company, maybe not as great. However, I'm experimenting w/ Bontu the Glorified

They aren't cheap creatures, but Bontu the Glorified or Erebos, God of the Dead could be good in this deck. I can see you running into issues with lifegain decks, these cards should prevent that as well as giving you little bonuses for stuff dying. You might also want to consider some sacrifice outlets, like Nantuko Husk. There might also be room for Blood Artist here.

Griff81ohyes- Throne of the God-Pharaoh would work in this deck. I actually made a deck based around that card and Ghirapur AEther Grid (Frontier format though). I have been considering Bontu the Glorified in this deck, I'm glad you mentioned it. I suppose the tokens that are going to be generated are more of fodder to flip Westvale Abbey as soon as possible...even though there are only two copies...Bontu can slide in to buy us time or win the game and Abbey could be a plan B. Thank you for the input, it's greatly appreciated.
