Deathbringer Thoctar Discussion

epajula on Prossh Totty

In my build I have had solid gameplay with Atarka, World Render, and Bloodsoaked Champion. I built my Prossh with a ton of removal. Much of my removal is actually based on Threaten mechanics with sac outlets. I run Sarkhan Vol, Conquering Manticore, Molten Primordial, Zealous Conscripts, Act of Aggression, Word of Seizing, Harness by Force, Hijack, and Kari Zev's Expertise all just to steal and sac to one of my outlets.

I have to agree with MindAblaze on the Grave Pact/Dictate of Erebos/Butcher of Malakir add. I personally only run Dictate however when it's live it is brutal. Your opponents are helpless until it's removed.

You can look at my list, That's so Prossh, if you would like. I have some janky combos like deathtouch + Deathbringer Thoctar or Goblin Sharpshooter that I could probably take out, but overall the deck is really fun.

Thank you Autumnstar for your advices! I definitely would add It That Betrays on this deck, looks so fun to play, about Deathbringer Thoctar and other nice creatures I have thinked at them, justt there isn't more place on this deck for them, all creatures I put on it are just so good and I like them xD Endless Ranks of the Dead just looks so fun on here

With thraximundar and one of your Grave pact effects out, you're already making your opponent sacrifice a lot of creatures, so I don't think you need both. Since Dictate of Erebos is more expensive mana-wise, i would cut it out for another creature. Something I've found is fun with a thraximundar EDH deck is It That Betrays. That way if your opponents don't want to give you three creatures a turn then they'll have to sacrifice other important permanents. Deathbringer Thoctar is fun in my opinion, and some awesome zombie lord cards you don't have at the moment are Plague Belcher, Noxious Ghoul, Risen Executioner, and Vengeful Dead. Also, not including Endless Ranks of the Dead almost feels like a flavor fail. Don't you think? ;)

Here are a few cards you could consider for this deck Deathbringer Thoctar, Mindless Automaton, Triskelion, Walking Ballista, Cauldron of Souls, Puppeteer Clique, and Murderous Redcap.

All of these cards synergize very well with either your commander or Mikaeus, the Unhallowed.

Carrion Feeder better sac outlet than gnawing zombies

Apprentice Necromancer hasty zombies are cool, this seems like an all star under mimic vat

Plaguebearer-anti token tech

Relentless Dead good all around card

Shepherd of Rot good with whip of erebos

Tymaret, the Murder King sac outlet with minor upsides. the more zombies in the deck the better

Withered Wretch graveyard hate=super good. if you run a lot of graveyard hate maybe look at Living Death as well

Anathemancer silly ramp decks with their fancy dual lands

Cemetery Reaper graveyard hate and lord

Death Baron no one will block thrax

Diregraf Colossus seems good at swarming, really good with gravecaller and phyrexian altar

Lich Lord of Unx slow token production, kinda cool win con

Lord of the Accursed another lord

Nantuko Husk free sac outlet. maybe better than ashnod's altar?

Plague Belcher board wipe i dare you

Unbreathing Horde big dumb guy, possibly hard to kill though

Agent of Erebos graveyard hate that could be repeatable

Corpse Augur card draw, you might be lacking on this type of effect right now

Drunau Corpse Trawler two zombies in one card

Forgotten Creation get that hand cycling for living death and patriarch's bidding

Risen Executioner another lord with possible upside

Undead Alchemist go wide in clever way

Undead Warchief super good card

Vengeful Dead another anti wrath tech

Custodi Lich card draw and board control

Gray Merchant of Asphodel life gain in massive swings is good in my book

Havengul Lich awesome card, would play

Kraum, Ludevic's Opus gotta get that blue/red working in your deck. this could be a Rhystic Study possibly as well

Lightning Reaver no one expects the hasty zombie, and gets around pillow forts. might make people target it/you

Noxious Ghoul super great card! it's been an all-star in every zombie deck i've run

Phyrexian Delver reanimation is good i hear

Possessed Skaab The zombie eternal witness?

Sidisi, Undead Vizier get your rooftop storm on curve

Woebearer slowish reanimation

Deathbringer Thoctar more creature control

Gempalm Polluter killing folks at instant speed, could be good to Phyrexian Reclamation

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed the best lord

Noosegraf Mob go wide

Twisted Abomination good early and late

Dark Salvation flexible kill card. make sure you understand the card before goofing it up

Cemetery Recruitment cheap draw 2

Zombie Infestation swarm card, might want to run a Bident of Thassa to fuel it

Curse of Shallow Graves kinda risky token maker

Empty the Pits instant speed army please?

Gisa and Geralf the type of non zombie i like in this deck

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet graveyard hate and tokens, winner winner chicken dinner

Vizier of Many Faces the embalm is a zombie, and you can get value out of milling it

Call to the Grave a payoff card to running zombies

Ghoulcaller Gisa swarm and sac outlet

Liliana, Death's Majesty if you want a planeswalker

Stitcher Geralf remember you can exile the creatures your opponents mill

Syphon Flesh expensive creature kill

Ever After could be good

Zombie Apocalypse this seems great

Necromantic Selection really expensive wrath, might want a Decree of Pain for the mana cost

Army of the Damned yeah zombies

Possible cuts

gnawing zombie- i think carrion feeder is better

mind slash- really slow, like really

phyrexian crusader- if this is your only infect threat i'm not sure i like it

defiler of souls- call to the grave is better in my book

cruel ultimatum mana curve reasons

curse of the cabal see above

trophy mage non zombie

phyrexian obliterator non zombie

you could think about cutting mulldrifter and skriekmaw as well because they aren't zombies

well that's a lot to think about, i'm excited to see what you put together!!!

MistaFizz thats not a stupid question at all! In fact this is actually somthing I have been toying with alot lately. I previously have played stuff like Craterhoof Behemoth, Avenger of Zendikar and Exsanguinate as my finishers in the deck but after awhile those have all kinda grown stale. Currently this deck wins by basically outvalueing everyone else (somthing it is very good at). Once i get a few of my many engines going i generate so much card advantage and board control that i can usually whittle down my opponents with Blood Artist, Goblin Bombardment, Deathbringer Thoctar or any number of reanimated beaters.

Personally I recommend Sedris, (maybe even his buddy Thraximundar) But the colour advantage you get is really nice, and the addition of blue gives you a lot of cool/fun options. Like for example Havengul Runebinder, Stitcher Geralf, Gisa and Geralf, Diregraf Captain, and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born. Red even splashes in some fun with Deathbringer Thoctar, Warstorm Surge, Goblin Bombardment, Impact Tremors, and even some fun thievery like Zealous Conscripts. Heck red even throws in the addition of Artifact removal, something Black and blue lack in. Vandalblast, Rakdos Charm, and By Force would all be nice additions.
