Corpse Knight also opens up the Earthcraft + Squirrel Nest combo as a finisher now too. I've been running it in mine too. And Brought Back can be used as a combo with Eternal Witness , Blood Artist and Phyrexian Altar .

Hey ! Cool deck, I just recently built my first Ghave deck and I really like it, lots of value and lots of fun. I have a few recommandation since you look interested :  - Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree  : I find it way to expensive, instead I run Oran-Rief, the Vastwood , way more value for a lot cheaper - Corpse Knight : I find Cruel Celebrant to be better for the life gain, for the same cost. - the new Moldervine Reclamation is an amazing draw engine in this deck, try giving it a shot - For a 3 colored deck, you lack mana fixing in my opinion. I run the 3 talisman (hierarchy, unity and resilience). Chromatic Lantern, a little bit more expensive, is a must have in 3 colored or more decks. - I find the thallid (with the spore counters) a bit underpowered even in this kind of deck (except Psychotrope Thallid ), but that's just my opinion. - From the top of of mind, cheap cards i would consider: Sigil Captain , Requiem Angel , Sandsteppe Citadel , Woodfall Primus , Song of Freyalise , ...

Hope this is some sort of help, would love to hear your opinion! Cheers

So quick heads up on a card you shouldn't sleep on: Corpse Knight . A red-style effect that this deck absolutely loves as it's a Purphoros you can play in Abzan. It's the relevant half of Zulaport Cutthroat for half the work (no need to sacrifice creatures).

I tested it in my own build and I quite fancy it. Easily tutored, and every combo that Blood Artist/Zulaport enabled also involved creatures entering endlessly (from Karmic/Reveillark/Saffi loops to the token loops). It also has a convenient benefit of turning on my Bloom Tender but I know you don't run that, but it's a nice side benefit. I cut Zulaport Cutthroat from my list for Corpse Knight and I haven't missed Zulaport yet (Blood Artist triggers on anyone's creatures dying, so it blanks other decks with graveyard combos or Hulk lines without Mike and Trike like Shuffle Hulk, which loops Narcomoeba for Blood Artist triggers. I doubt it's extremely relevant, but it saved my ass once so that's what pushed me toward keeping Blood Artist over Zulaport. They're really all the same once you establish a combo, though).

Yeah I think Corpse Knight works here, and will presumably do more damage over time than the Viashino.

PookandPie on I Ghave Up My Creatures Budget

Since this is a budget list, I'll list some budget recommendations. Cool? Cool, let's do this

Corpse Knight should be in. He's half of Zulaport Cutthroat but for half the work- you put the tokens in, they just lose life, no need to sacrifice anything (so you can maintain a board state while being doubly threatening). This is one of my favorite new cards so I'd recommend you add this in on either of your lists. It's half the cost of Poison Tip Archer, for example, so that could be a straight upgrade for this slot.

Generous Patron is very, very good. 1 mana = 1 card draw by sacrificing a creature token is huge.

Retribution of the Ancients is better than Phyrexian Swarmlord.

Geralf's Messenger makes an infinite combo with Ashnod's Altar and Ghave that kills all of your opponents. Any Undying creature + Ashnod's Altar + Ghave = Infinite creatures at minimum, so I'd recommend Butcher Ghoul , Young Wolf , and Geralf's Messenger . They're overtly good counters sources assuming you have a sac outlet (1 mana = 1 token is good), but go infinite at the drop of a hat. That's better than Verdant Force, Avenger of Zendikar, and Vindictive Lich, as it forwards your gameplan faster.

You don't need Mana Geode. Sakura-Tribe Elder is one mana cheaper and grabs any basic, so I'd recommend that.

No Cathars' Crusade seems odd. It goes infinite with Devoted Druid and Ghave, but it also gives counters everywhere and makes you threatening even when not in an infinite combo.

That's all I've got for now. Hope this helps!

Thank you wallisface once again for the great input. : ) I definitely see what you mean and have swapped around some cards accordingly as per your recommendations.

I do have another question though, do you think that Corpse Knight would be a good replacement or would something more along the lines of Viashino Pyromancer would be more appropriate? I went with Corpse Knight as the redundancy seemed nice and because the deck isn't necessarily going for quick damage, the extra damage over time looked like it'd be good to have. However, blinking Viashino wouldn't necessarily be a bad approach either. Or, do you think something else entirely would help more?
