Carrier Thrall Discussion

It's been a while since I worked on this deck and just recently dusted off the tappedout list. I initially didn't include Mikaeus because he was fairly expensive and I didn't know how much I wanted to do with Undying.
As for the land-searchers, when I threw this together I was more concerned with getting colors, that's why I didn't list Sol Ring, Thran Dynamo etc. as they produce colorless mana mostly. I've been thinking about picking this up again, so I'll review everything again.
The Altars might be very nice to get more mana, but Scorpio's ability can get pretty expensive so I don't think we can churn out an infinite combo with it very easily.. I think it would work if you happened to have something like Pitiless Plunderer as well, with Ashnod's Altar you'd get , and could use the treasure token for at least one of the required /. I don't think it can go infinite, but you can combo as long as there are creatures on the board. Probably, seeing as we have quite a lot of other -1/-1 effects that might kill stuff, as long as we somehow get colored mana from their death...
Bog Initiate would allow you to filter the colorless mana into colored mana.
So it might be possible to go infinite, but you'd need a lot of cards in play to combo off. Sac outlet for mana, treasure or eldrazi tokens for colors, revival though undying or pesist..

If you maybe want to make the sacrificing a little more consistent and focus more on the Bloodthrone Vampire and Rite of Consumption plan, maybe include more creatures like Myr Sire that replace themselves. Cards like Doomed Dissenter, Carrier Thrall and Sultai Emissary are all fine options and allow for two sacrifices with one creature. Maybe replace the Perilous Myr and Tattered Mummy with these options, as although those creatures do hurt the opponent, committing fully to just bloodthrone-riting someone out should make it so you don't need the extra damage. Hope this helps in some way, really like the deck!

So, im looking at this from a competitive modern standpoint, and you have it listed as "casual" in the description. i think to up it to somewhat competitive, some slight adjustments could be made, all while holding the theme and mechanics in place. Some choices of cards to add, in my opinion, to make the deck a little better are:
other general adds to consider for rounding out purposes or spicy flavor are Blisterpod (why not 4?), Mortarpod, Tukatongue Thallid, Nest Invader, Fleshbag Marauder, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Grim Haruspex, Duskwatch Recruiter Flip, Carrier Thrall, Evolutionary Leap, Sultai Emissary, Bloodthrone Vampire, Bloodsoaked Champion, Scrapheap Scrounger, Altar's Reap, Bone Splinters.

I'm sorry to break this to you, but regenerating doesn't prevent sacrificing, just destruction. So instead i suggest that you throw in stuff with on-death triggers like Carrier Thrall or Blood Artist.

Love the defense grid idea,I'm very skepticpe on blood moon effects, since we use contamination so much better. I run mostly black though.
I think that if you go the necropotence/razaketh build(which I'm very excited to see) than you should use more vamps. And Cartel Aristocrat cuz it's another sac outlet and Carrier Thrall cuz it provides another body.
Yeah, it's definitely important to figure out which stax/interactions are most efficient for us.
I love the academy rector package. Overall I'd say add that ( Humility )?, and drop ad naus? Your version is just getting really high in cmc, vs mines is running the straight storm suite. I think yours is coming out more resilient tho. I'm still wiffing if I get a shitty hand or countered.

Hmm,actually this looks pretty solid. I do want to ask a bout a few cards I saw in the new set though that you don't have.
Also, Sanctum Seeker was spoiled as well, though I'm not sure where to cut for it unless you would want it over Brutal Hordechief. Personally I'd want both, but obviously you can't fit everything in here.
For some cards though I feel they'd be good, but where to cut is a problem again.

Thank you for the ideas. I already run some of those cards in my other sacrifice deck ("just get rid of them!"). Since I feel that another colour would slow down this deck, I won't include white.Carrier Thrall is definitely worth thinking about. Removal too, even though I find that my enchantments already do a pretty good job in removing ...
