Corpse Knight Discussion

Some thoughts:

To help fill out the 3-drop slot, Belle of the Brawl and Ardenvale Tactician would be a good options. Midnight Reaper would be a good fit as well, but it's more pricey.

Unfortunately, Aryel, Knight of Windgrace and Dauntless Bodyguard just rotated out of standard. Venerable Knight would be a good replacement for the Bodyguard, if you're looking for a 1-drop.

Corpse Knight is another interesting card. It puts you more on a drain plan, but it also combos with Worthy Knight .

Thank you! I’m glad you like it. That’s certainly an interesting approach and almost as viable as just having Corpse Knight out for those lines. I don’t know how the mana base will like having more colorless lands, so I’d have to check the balance. It’s definitely an option, though.

I think it's strictly worse than Corpse Knight

Hey, nice version of Alesha. I too switched to Alesha from Teysa :)

I play Alesha with infinite combos, here's some observations I have made while playing. You might be aware, but it's not mentioned in the deck description that Karmic Guide + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + sac outlet is another infinite combo. It's infinite hasty Guides as well as infinite die triggers of Kiki.

For the Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit + Murderous Redcap + sac outlet combo you can replace the sac outlet with an aristocrat. Redcap can do damage to itself which kills itself triggering persist. When Redcap ETB you can stack the triggers so Anafenza gives it a +1/+1 counter before it targets itself with damage resulting in infinite die triggers of Redcap.

I'm not a fan of Judith, the Scourge Diva when playing Kiki combos. Kiki makes a token of the creature it copies and Judith doesn't trigger when a token creature dies. The other aristocrats do trigger when a token creature dies. Kiki is a huge reason to want to play combos with Alesha as General therefore any cards that have dysergy with Kiki I would avoid.

With Corpse Knight you can infinite combo with Kiki and win without having to attack. This is helpful since if you want to combo with Kiki and attack with the infinite copies of the creature then you can't use Alesha's reanimation that turn to enable the combo because Alesha has to attack to reanimate. Knight also works with all the other creature infinite combos since those combos too are having at least one creature repeatedly ETB. Knight opens up other avenues to winning with Kiki combos without attacking at instant speed with Necromancy or Apprentice Necromancer reanimation. I don't play Necromancy because of budget, but that's not a problem with your deck.

Altar of Dementia just like Goblin Bombardment as a sac outlet is a win condition with combos without needing an aristocrat. This is helpful because it speeds up the assembly of a combo since now you don't need a sac outlet and an aristocrat instead you just need Dementia to win.

  • Kiki + Guide + Dementia
  • Kiki + Guardian + Dementia
  • Lark + Guide + Dementia
  • Warder + Animate + Dementia
  • etc.

Blasting Station is another sac outlet that can be used to win without needing an aristocrat. I don't play it because of budget, but that's not a problem with your deck. Razaketh, the Foulblooded is a busted card in Commander as a sac outlet combo enabler and in my opinion it's very good with Alesha as General because she can repeatedly reanimate fodder to sac to tutor. Guide is great with Alesha and with Razaketh because it can reanimate and be repeatable fodder to sac.

Good luck with your deck.

I feel like Icon of Ancestry is a bit too slow in this deck as your trying to go as fast as possible. The +1+1 to all Knights is nice but its your most expensive card aside from Embercleave , which can cost RR with 4 attackers. I would reccomend Rotting Regisaur if you want large creature granted this deck seems to want to go wide so Worthy Knight would be good as well as it gives you a free 1/1 creature and can stack with Corpse Knight .

Silverdrake on Abzan Panharmonicon

Looks fun - I especially like the use of Charming Prince, very clever! Not sure how I feel about Eerie Interlude though - you can gain a bunch of life with it, but the only real value I'd say you get from it is flickering a rhino. I'm also not in love with the Obzedat inclusion - I see how it's on the lifegain/etb/drain theme, but it's so big and clunky and slow compared to the rest of the kit you've built here. If I were you, I'd cut both Interludes and both Obzedats for 4x Corpse Knight . Plays better with the aggressive list you've built and still takes advantage of the panharmonicon effect.

24 lands is also pretty high for a list like this - I'd consider going down to 23 or 22. You can fill those extra slots with the last Thoughtseize and/or the last Assassin's Trophy .

Hey, see your Topic and want make some suggestions.

Life-Loss Combo with your Exquisite Blood - Combopieces: Defiant Bloodlord or Sanguine Bond .

I think here is no Question ;).

Second Combo: Exile with Aminatou, the Fateshifter the Felidar Guardian and with Felidar Guardian infinite Aminatou, the Fateshifter Corpse Knight will deal infinite Dmg.

Rhystic Study is a must have for every Blue Deck, Brainstorm & Ponder also for Topdeck-Control. Smothering Tithe give you more Ramp/Mana if your Opponent dident pay. A Land Tax is so awesome, take 3 Basics out the Deck every Turn, and your Chance to Draw Combopieces is better. (Also if you must Discard Basic-Lands (Handsize).

Here is my old Vapire Deck, its more Casual but maybe you find more Ideas for your own Deck. [PreCon] Legion of Dusk - Orzhov Vampire Tribal

Have Fun. Greez Vimozahr

I've been running a similar deck. Mine is mono black but i found that Plaguecrafter is better than Murderous Rider in most cases. Plaguecrafter basically would be a a cantrip in this deck with Liliana, Dreadhorde General or Midnight Reaper on the field. Plus it triggers Cruel Celebrant , Corpse Knight and Ayara, First of Lochthwain whereas Murderous Rider cost 2bbbb to do the same thing and you lose two life doing it. I've also took advantage of Gingerbrute . Sounds weird but it's free damage early in the game and most decks ive seen are playing tapped lands leaving opponents oppen for a turn or two. Gingerbrute is also a food which means you can sac him to Cauldron Familiar getting a few death triggers that way and the etb. anyway, here's a link to my version if you'd like to check it out and i too could use some advice.
