Deathgreeter Discussion

Minihorror227 on Demonic Sacrifices

i like the deck +1 from me?

is there any way to get lifegain in this? Maybe with Zulaport Cutthroat, Blood Artist, or maybe Deathgreeter? The deck likes to tutor and could tutor into them through rune-scarred and razaketh. With 2 of either combination of them, you would be able to use razakeths ability infinite times until you have all you want out of the deck.

I would take out the 2 curses, they ain't all that great - especially the white one. I like the red one more, but that isn't in this deck.

I have doubts about the following cards aswell - but wether you wanna take them out depends more on what your playgroup usually plays :

  • Skeletal Vampire : he's just a bit too expensive - 6 mana for a 3/3 ? And then another 5 for 2 more new bats (one of wich you need to sack to get 2 more). So basically that means you need to pay 5 mana to be able to regenerate him. Most turns you'll have better options to play for 5 mana. That said, if you add a bit of a sacrifice theme in the deck like Dictate of Erebos, Deathgreeter,.... sacking the bat to regenerate Skeletal Vampire, wil give you additional benefits (killing creatures of your opponents, gaining you life, ....). In that case it might be worth it

  • Kheru Mind-Eater : I think people will probably just block and kill him fast. If they don't and he does damage, your opponent still gets to choose wich card he's gonna exile (and it won't be the best card he has at hand). You may play that card, but you still need to pay it's mana cost, so wether you can play it greatly depends on what colors your opponent plays. All in all I find the likelyhood that you'll profit from this card is just too small and therefor I would replace it

  • Consuming Vapors : this card has the same problem as the one before. It costs 4 mana, and how many times will you be able to play it in a situation where your opponent only has one big creature on the board ? If your opponent has a 10/10 and a 3/3 on the board, he's gonna sack the 3/3 and you gain 3 life..... I think there are better removal spell out there

  • Fell the Mighty : same story again. You play a boardwhipe when you have nothing and your opponent has a full board. when you do play one, you want all creatures to be removed - and there are better boardwhipes out there to do that. The only time this card would actually benefit you is when you have a lot of small vamps and your opponents have a lot of big creatures.

  • Syphon Mind : Intresting card this one. If you usually play against 3 or more opponents this might be good. If you usually play 1 on 1 I would remove it, cause then it is to expensive (mana wise).

This is just my personal thoughts, I'm sure some people feel very different about it, so all in all it's up to you to see how you wanna play.

Making some more changes, for the better, I hope. I did a total deck break-down on paper to see what cards I had that were doing what, and I may break down in the description later on. I'm wanting some more recursion options, so I added Palace Siege and will also be adding Oversold Cemetery. These cards will help run the deck if Meren is out.

I'm also seriously looking to add Buried Alive and Gray Merchant of Asphodel, and possibly Merciless Executioner and Fleshbag Marauder. I just need to figure out what to cut, and I think I have that narrowed down, too. Deathgreeter is likely to get cut, and Disciple of Griselbrand is on the chopping block, too. Disciple of Griselbrand might stay, just because he can be a sac outlet. Deathgreeter only offers life gain, and isn't a sac outlet himself, so he just doesn't quite do enough work.

WrathofCod on shirei in refining

@ frwtr1968 Love the deck so far! It seems like a very fun and efficient mix of ramp, stax, sacrifice effects and reanimation! Normally, I would suggest adding some more ramp, but honestly I think you are pretty good! However, 37 lands for a deck with an average cmc of 2.86 is a lot and I would suggest cutting a land or two and adding in some more mana doublers like Nirkana Revenant and Magus of the Coffers to help ramp you (I would lower your land count to 36 lands if it was up to me, but 37 is just fine too). Nirkana Revenant is also a great finisher if you can somehow manage to get it through unblocked with something like a Whispersilk Cloak! The only thing I am struggling with is how you plan to win the game. While winning through attrition and recursion is definitely possible, I feel like you deck lacks staying power late game. Since you have a bunch of 1/1s and 2/2s, you aren't really winning through combat damage, and since you don't have any infinite combos (that I can see) you can't threaten to combo off and win that way. I would personally recommend adding in at least one infinite combo, a few more tutors and some more sac effects to help you win the game easier! In particular, I would recommend including the Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Walking Ballista/Triskelion combo to close out games that go long. In addition to being a combo piece, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is an amazing value engine that provides redundancy in terms of recursion and synergizes with Black Sun's Zenith! Another way to increase the power level of your deck is to add more tutors. Some tutors that are underused and would work great in your deck are Diabolic Intent, Increasing Ambition and Beseech the Queen. Lastly there are a TON of cards that synergize with your sacrifice theme (of permanents in general, not just creatures) or that benefit from creatures dying, that I think warrant some serious consideration. It don't have time to explain them all, so I will just provide a list and let you decide which ones to include! Alright, here are the cards I think should probably be in your deck: Fume Spitter, Tree of Perdition, Toxic Deluge, Death Cloud, Deathgreeter, Demon of Death's Gate, Ob nixilis, the unshackled, Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath, Weaponcraft Enthusiast (amazing reanimation target), Nezumi Bone-Reader, Malicious Affliction (Best removal for your colors!), Exsanguinate, Lake of the Dead, Bitterblossom (a must include in my opinion), Tragic Slip, Darksteel Plate (to protect Shirei), Hope of Ghirapur, Champion's Helm (same reasoning as Darksteel Plate), Bone Splinters, Killing Wave, Ashnod's Altar, Altar of Dementia, Waste Not, Cryptbreaker, Strionic Resonator (Does double Shirei triggers sound fun?!), Wretched Confluence, Entomb, and Champion of Stray Souls! Anyways, I know that's a lot of suggestions and a lot of information to take in, but I figured I should give you all the advice I have and let you decide what to do with it! Feel free to ask me for more advice or suggestions if you need to. Good luck with this amazing deck!

Nice deck but you're definitely missing some key cards here. Try including Attrition, Vampiric Rites, Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos, Blood Artist, Grim Haruspex, Zulaport Cutthroat and Deathgreeter.

I think a Cliffhaven Vampire and Deathgreeter would fit your theme very well. +1!

Scoured Barrens is a must include, even if you just replace Salt Flats. Also, how about Radiant Fountain or Kabira Crossroads? Your land count is kind of low, I would add Kor Cartographer and/or Liliana's Shade. Recur them early and often with Athroes, Phyrexian Reclamation, Ravos, Soultender, etc. For further land triggers I started to run Ruin Ghost, bounce those life gain lands. Don't forget to tap them before you bounce them.

If you want little dorks, Deathgreeter and Soul Warden are in my Karlov of the Ghost Council deck.

How about Karlov himself, or Treasury Thrull ? I have gotten huge value from both.

If you average game is 3+ opponents, Shattered Angel is great value.

And get Thought Vessel or Library of Leng and ditch Spellbook, very little value from that card.
