Deathreap Ritual Discussion

GoldenDiggle on Pharika, The Enchanter

Hey Spirit! Good to see that you're doubling down on enchantments! I know you're going budget, but you may want some of these!

You have 17 Enchantments in your deck, 7 of them being creatures, +1 for Pharika. ~1/8 of your cards are enchantments. I think you could use more!

Defense of the Heart, Bear Umbra, Rancor, Dictate of Erebos, Grave Pact, Phyrexian Arena, Erebos, God of the Dead, Polluted Bonds, Cryptolith Rite, Tainted Remedy, Evolutionary Leap, Spidersilk Armor, Animate Dead, Burgeoning, and Deathreap Ritual are all pretty solid cards around or under $10 that would fit well in your deck.

Argothian Enchantress, Enchantress's Presence, Shaper's Sanctuary, Harvester of Souls, Abundance, and Skullclamp all help you draw cards pretty easily. I would suggest getting a few of them.

Scute Mob, Managorger Hydra, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, and Ob Nixilis, Unshackled are a few creatures that can get pretty huge. Blade of the Bloodchief and Ancestral Mask will make some stuff pretty big too.

I have particularly found Kruphix's Insight to be pretty good at digging for enchants and filling your graveyard.

Oh, and in case you didn't know, you have 2 Diabolic Tutor on your list right now!

Of those, Pox is the one on my "Maybe's" list, and I'm seriously looking for a way to fit it in because it's just so good! As for the rest, they generally fall into the following categories:

Too slow and/or too expensive: Blood Artist (no combo in the deck, doesn't affect the battlefield at all), Black Market, Bontu the Glorified (tries to do too many things, but does none of them very well), Lotleth Troll, Deadbridge Chant, Deathreap Ritual

Not proactive / assertive for our gameplan: Spore Frog, Mesmeric Orb

Re: Westvale Abbey  Flip - colors are too important the first few turns, so we can't really afford any colorless lands unless their activation rate is extremely high or utility is essential to deck function. The distinction is NOT whether a land is good, but rather whether it's necessary to win. I've lost a lot of games being stuck on colorless lands that were "good" but only that.

how come no Blood Artist, Black Market, Bontu the Glorified, Lotleth Troll, Spore Frog, Mesmeric Orb, Pox, Deadbridge Chant, Deathreap Ritual and Westvale Abbey  Flip all of these are cheap and super strong in meren with the exception of 2 deadbridge and black market are both really good though.

Thanks for the suggestions. I have included the combo you mentioned and also Replaced Ambition's Cost with Deathreap Ritual as I feel I will get more value out of it.

Struggling to think of other cards that could go in now!!!

He is probably my "Strongest" deck. The guy is a combo enabler straight up. Obviously counter and token doublers get out of control (Corpsejack Menace, Paralell Lives, or Primal Vigor), as do effects that add extra counters (such as Winding Constrictor or Juniper Order Ranger). You don't have to run them all, but they enable the rest of the deck, so I would suggest running as many as you can.

As mentioned, Pact effects are worthwhile. Dictate of Erebos and Butcher of Malakir are well worth it as they clean boards up.

Generally anything that does something when nontokens etb like Aura Shards, Cathars' Crusade, or Soul Warden is pretty solid. Death effects like Deathreap Ritual, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, or Zulaport Cutthroat also do well.

Anything that sacrifices for mana is strong, Ashnod's Altar being at the front of that list, Phyrexian Altar and Utopia Mycon not far behind. Perilous Forays is also a strong contender.

Tapping your creatures is pretty neat as well. Earthcraft and Nullmage Shepherd being prime examples. Additionally, giving your creatures tap abilities through cards like Cryptolith Rite works well.

Some particular favorites of mine are Spike Weaver, Archangel of Thune + Soul Warden , Gavony Township, Young Wolf, Westvale Abbey  Flip, and Last Laugh.

You may or may not know the things I just mentioned, but hopefully you can make a great deck! (I suggest foiling out cheap combo pieces such as Hardened Scales since you have the cash.)

Dang, Dragon Broodmother triggers EACH upkeep?! I thought it was good when I was playing with it wrong...

Deathreap Ritual if you can trigger it with Viscera Seer, Ashnod's Altar, etc
