Deathgreeter Discussion

xSKINCOLLECTORx Thanks for the comments and suggestions!

  1. Phyrexian Altar + Reassembling Skeleton isn't meant to generate infinite mana, but paired with Pitiless Plunderer creates infinite death triggers and requires 1 of 3 aristocrats to drain all opponents.

  2. Deathgreeter is by no means meant to get me infinite life, but rather bolster life lost from other sources. I specifically chose it over other options such as Syr Konrad, the Grim for the CMC 1. The draining aristocrats I'm using for that effect are CMC 2, 2, and 3; making them a lot more consistent to play.

I recommend Syr Konrad, the Grim instead of Deathgreeter. Infinite life doesn’t do a whole lot of good in EDH when there’s commander damage or outright wins happening

Fair enough. A lot of the cards I suggested cutting are ones I ran but found to be more of a hinderance then helpful.

Perhaps you will have better luck with them.

I’m regards to Solem there are better card draw cards and that one basic he gets isn’t going to be game changing.

I believe you can find something of more value to take its place. With Deathgreeter I was just thinking of the life loss cards I run.

You could probably do without it.

Thanks KibaAlpha as always.

Pitiless Plunderer I am going to keep for now, I feel it is an extremely powerful value engine in this deck that can power up a Reassembling Skeleton, for example, with multiple recursions without going infinite.

I agree with you on Revel in Riches but I like the idea of having an alternate wincon in the deck in case someone goes out of control with lifegain or something similar.

Butcher of Malakir I almost cut last round of edits but decided to leave him in since my local meta is really creature heavy right now, he will get cut when I see it shifting.

Also agree with Sadistic Hypnotist, he will draw alot of hate and is one of my worst sac outlets being at sorcery speed only. I'm hoping to trigger his ability a few times before taking him out of deck.

Only point I disagree with is the Deathgreeter vs Solemn Simulacrum recommendation. I don't see the value of Deathgreeter, there are already at least 6 other cards that trigger lifegain on death (aristocrats), and Solemn Simulacrum provides so much value, especially with Teysa Karlov on the board. Recur him with Mimic Vat or Nim Deathmantle for aggressive ramping.

Looking pretty solid. What few things I would change.

I would remove, Pitiless Plunderer not really needed with Black Market. Revel in Riches I like but I find that if you can't cast it at flash speed on the end step prior to your turn odds of it sticking around are slim to none. Butcher of Malakir I find just to high cmc when you have Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact already. Vindicate sorcery speed not a fan of due to this type of deck requiring instant speed removal. I like the Sadistic Hypnotist and hope you can make him work. It's too slow and high target in my playgroup sadly or he'd be in my build. The last thing I'd do is drop Solemn Simulacrum for Deathgreeter.

I strongly suggest you reconsider your decision to not run Dark Ritual and Bubbling Muck .

White/Black does not have much in the way of getting extra land in to play. You need to capitalize on the lands you have.

Remember you are playing Aristocrats. You need at least 3 pieces on the field to make it work. A lot of mana is key to keep recuring your creatures and recasting.

I recommend Cabal Ritual as well.

I myself have opted to remove Lotus Petal from my own build.

Don’t overlook Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip. It’s good card draw and you need plenty.

Erebos, God of the Dead is high value card draw as well as keeping your opponents from gaining life.

If you are worried about life add Deathgreeter .

If you can get yourself Orzhov Locket and Arcane Signet .

Self recuring creatures you might consider Gutterbones , Relentless Dead and Tenacious Dead unless you are dead set on tokens.

Your deck is pretty sweet! Have you considered Deathgreeter and Dimir House Guard ? Deathgreeter lets you gain some life back if you need, and House Guard can tutor up any 4 drop in your deck or double as a sac outlet.
