Carrier Thrall Discussion

Ok, so to make the deck more reactive AND mess less with AdNaus, why not Slaughter Pact? Should not bother with the 4 we need to pay, either we use it on combo turn or we have nothing else to do with our mana because we should only use it in EXTREME cases... Another 'free' removal spell would be Snuff Out, 4 life might be too much (needs testing) but we should always have a swamp so it would at least be free in mana... Would mess with AdNaus but still always be relevant to remove something at least...

Myr Sireis another one that could be considered, similar to Carrier Thrall, but no colored mana (which can sometimes be a plus). No it can't tap for mana nor will the token it produces, but you would still be able to go off with only another creature on board plus him if needed. Also you would have another creature to sacrifice after a Culling the Weakor an opponent trying to remove... I could see it replacing Reassembling Skeleton, since it would give the same purpose, two tutors for two mana, but without any further mana investment.

And... Would you like to get an appropriate primer written? I would greatly like to contribute to your deck and have it featured on our list!

So, my suggestions this time:


-Infernal Darkness

-Reassembling Skeleton

+Ebon Stronghold

+Slaughter Pact

+Myr Sire

Edit: And I see you are missing a card, I would suggest adding in City of Traitorsas a land also in the deck. Every possible way to ramp is good, even if it is a land that maybe won't stick around. It would act as another copy of Crystal Vein in some way, I would even say it would be beter, since you can drop it on a turn for 2 mana, next turn tap it before playing the land so it can net 4 in two turns at the very least, if not more (and awesome land on combo turn). If you do not want a land more, I would suggest cutting Mishra's Workshopfor it.

Carrier Thrall, Nantuko Husk, Return to the Ranks are all cards to consider. IMO You should aim for Abzan instead of Mardu so you can use Collected Company, Abzan Ascendancy, Tukatongue Thallid, Blisterpod, etc. You might want to consider low cost sac outlets like Viscera Seer instead of big creatures like Butcher of the Horde

No longer standard legal, the cards you have to switch out are Carrier Thrall and Ob Nixilis Reignited. I recommend maybe 3 Alms of the Vein to replace them, good burn spell that has madness.

Im not aware of anything that can beat that in alone. You would need or for counters or bounce. The only thing you could do is have creatures that can be sacrificed so you can still get value out of them, or creatures that spawn a token when they die like Blisterpod or Carrier Thrall

Carrier Thrall seems like an upgrade on Doomed Dissenter. You loose out on 1 toughness, but gain a token that can produce mana and sacrifice itself unconditionally. I'm also fairly sure that you can cut Traverse the Ulvenwald at this point with the whole delirium package gone. A 4th Gideon, Ally of Zendikar would benefit the deck, out of curve consideration you might also consider cutting some cards to make room for 4x Blisterpod

I think Indulgent Aristocrat is less good than it seems. I mean, in order to get a +1/+1 bonus for itself, you have to play another creature and pay 2 mana. It then also shares the bonus with the rest of your team, but that won't happen in the early game anyway, due to the mana cost. So rather than an early/mid-game lord, it's a 1/1 lifelink creature, with a possible way to minimize losses in lategame.

There isn't a real sacrifice theme in this deck, so bringing creatures for that would be wasted, but otherwise I'd suggest Carrier Thrall for budget, Bloodghast for not-so-budget. Would be a lot better with some more sac-outlets, though.

Some cards that I think you should add: Doomed Dissenter, Sacred Cat and/or Carrier Thrall because they can offer an extra body after death. Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Defiant Salvager, Emrakul's Evangel, Indulgent Aristocrat are all decent sac engines. Oketra's Monument and Bontu's Monument with the additional tokens that Oketra's provides you'll have more to sac and Bontu's offers a little more life drain to your arsenal. Hanweir Militia Captain  Flipand Ulvenwald Mysteries can help token production while Mysteries has the added benefit of giving you a little draw power. Westvale Abbey  Flip because eating creatures and having a big mean flyer is always nice. You should also consider Pious Evangel  Flip as it flips into what is essentially Zulaport Cutthroat and wouldnt hurt the deck at all.
