Catacomb Sifter

Creature — Eldrazi Drone

Devoid (This card has no color.)

When Catacomb Sifter enters the battlefield, put a 1/1 colorless Eldrazi Scion creature token onto the battlefield. It has "Sacrifice this creature: Add to your mana pool."

Whenever another creature you control dies, scry 1. (Look at the top card of your library. You may put that card on the bottom of your library.)

Well, here's my deck for reference: Going Down to Value Town.

Looking at your list, I would probably cut either Viridian Emissary or Catacomb Sifter . I tried both of these cards at one point, and they just don't quite get there if you know what I mean.

Thank you. I have Grumgully, the Generous and Catacomb Sifter in a binder. Definitely putting those in. I'm going to go pick up Nim Deathmantle and Murderous Redcap tonight. I'm also thinking about Furnace Celebration , maybe Triskelion .

Hey there,

Going infinite in Jund is easy and fun. Any of the persist creatures (e.g. Murderous Redcap ) go infinite with Bad Mike or Grumgully, the Generous . All you need is a free sac outlet like Ashnod's Altar .

The altar creates an infinite loop with Nim Deathmantle and any creature card that brings two bodies to the field like the aforementioned persist dudes or others like Catacomb Sifter .

You can take a look at my Sek'kuar deck here for some inspiration.

Really like the synergy between Eldrazi Displacer and Brood Monitor , Catacomb Sifter ,

but i'm not sure if Pack Rat really pays off, you already have to pay 5 Mana and sicard a card just to get that card and another Rat token.

Brood Monitor gives you 1 Creature and 3 eldrazi tokens for 6 Mana, in addition its synergy with Eldrazi Displacer is simply insane.

I don't know if there's an green or black alternative to Eldrazi Displacer , i guess not, but its 1 white mana cost is indeed annoying.

Maybe theres a white alternative to Pack Rat .

Also depending on your playstyle Hornet Queen could be an alternative to Brood Monitor , depending on how often you want to use the mana gain of the eldrazi tokens. Also the active effect of Eldrazi Displacer gets more efficient with an increasing mana cost of the exiled target creature.

Good luck with your deck! Looks really fun to me :)

Need more variety in your free sacrifice generation. Don't worry, I'm here to make tons of terrible and unnecessary recommendations! I'm just going to throw them down in a list instead of coming up with a little blurb for why each one is good (you're smart enough to not need that).

Smothering Abomination , From Beyond , Awakening Zone , Revel in Riches , Pawn of Ulamog , Catacomb Sifter , Emrakul's Evangel , Rapacious One , Spawning Bed , Spawnsire of Ulamog , Vile Redeemer , Brass's Bounty , Contract Killing , Curse of Opulence , Gild , Gleaming Barrier ... cont'd.

Catacomb Sifter to even out your draws?

I’ve been having a long hard think about this deck list, I was considering a Ghave deck for my last deck but I opted for something else instead. This is my two cents..

This deck seems very heavily creature based, more than a third of it is creatures, so turn them into your ramp. Cards like; Cryptolith Rite or Citanul Hierophants will be far better for you than Farhaven Elf . Keep the creatures that you can sac to fetch lands because then they will trigger your death triggers, which gives you much more value . Other creatures that do this are Primal Druid

Veteran Explorer

Viridian Emissary

Burnished Hart

Dawntreader Elk

Perilous Forays this one would be really good as it turns all of your tokens into Sakura-Tribe Elder.

Since you’re playing around with counters I’d run Gyre Sage for some bigger ramp. You could take out the Llanowar Elves

I really like all the infinite sac combos but I think you’re running too many blood artist triggers. You could easily only run him and maybe one other with a similar effect. Some other cool effects you could run to replace some of those triggers could be Catacomb Sifter

Death's Presence awesome with your counters

Considering your on a tight budget, Id cut these:
Rhythm of the Wild (unless you play vs alot of blue control, Love this card but I cut this quick when I realized how many things it doesn't affect that I care about)
Comet Storm
Chain Reaction (maybe keep, it kinda liek blasphemous act but you would have a betetr idea how well it does in your group!)
Stronghold Assassin
Savage Ventmaw
Vampiric Rites
Chancellor of the Forge
Forgotten Ancient
Catacomb Sifter
Deathbringer Thoctar
Atarka, World Render
