Debt to the Deathless Discussion

suggestions: Hissing Miasma -> Ghostly Prison , Bitter Revelation -> Necropotence . Buried Alive doesn't fit in a deck with no recursion. Shade's Form makes a poor win condition. you have to attack and get though and it can only eliminate 1 player at a time with a massive resource investment to do so. Torment of Hailfire Exsanguinate and Debt to the Deathless are much better. good life gain payoffs are Karlov of the Ghost Council Crested Sunmare and Archangel of Thune that give you big rewards just for you opponents playing spells while kambal is out.

Seraph of the Scales seems like a good addition. I have thought about that one or Elenda, the Dusk Rose before. I have won games with Debt to the Deathless before, but I could see cutting it for something else. It may just be a "win more" card, and Seraph is more on theme.

Haha I see what you mean about Generous Gift not matching the aesthetic, but it can remove anything. In my Meta I really need all the removal I can get, since some decks will combo off pretty early if no one removes an important enchantment or something quickly. This deck takes a little bit of set up before it starts going off and I want to make sure I can get there.

Thank you for the input! Good suggestion!

Personally I like Knight of Sorrows and Seraph of the Scales . As for what to take out.... Hmm personally I'd drop Debt to the Deathless because I don't love how high a Mana cost it has and Generous Gift ... That one is a decent card but it doesn't match the aesthetic of the rest of the deck which bothers me lol also you have a decent amount of removal so I don't think you need one that gives your opponent something.

Here are some creature cards I'd like to add soon:

Dusk Legion Zealot , Cordial Vampire , Cruel Celebrant Knight of the Ebon Legion , Vampire of the Dire Moon , Changeling Outcast , Vampire Cutthroat , Duskborne Skymarcher . Lastly Purphoros, God of the Forge for amazing damage potential when i get the spare cash.

Some other cards I would like to get are the following:

Shared Animosity , Coat of Arms , Diabolic Intent , Phyrexian Altar , Cover of Darkness , Impact Tremors

Some Cards I'm considering:

Debt to the Deathless , Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord

Finally some Wishlist cards I hope to get sooner or later, but are more pricey:

Cavern of Souls , Marsh Flats , Vampiric Tutor

Peripateticien on i don't mean to get political, BUT...

Azeworai Thx for the feedback! It's the first EDH I built from scratch and I'm very happy with it ^^. Sanguine Bond was added at the end when searching for a last card, I thought it would be nice with Kenrith, the Returned King and Debt to the Deathless , boosting the wincon. I like a lot your idea to put Standstill and Powerstone, it make the other players think twice before doing anything and can give me some precious time. I'll look somewhere to put them for sure! Walking Desecration and Dulcet Sirens could be good ideas, but I know that the group that I play with won't consider them as indirect as you could think :p and could give me a lot more unwanted aggro than Kambal, Consul of Allocation that is just considered a passive card. For the other cards, I saw them when building the deck, but didn't choose to put them in for different reasons. Guided Passage have a to great random factor with it. Suffocating Blast is a good counterspell but 3 damages for 2 more manas than the classic counterspell is a lot in EDH, don't you think? I liked the idea of Mercy Killing , but I chose to remove cards that destroy a creature in exchange of other creatures, not because it's not good but because I used them a lot in my last political commander and wanted to try something else, juste a personnal choice. It's the first time I see Debt of Loyalty and I think I'll give it a try. Thanks for your recommandations =D, I change a little bit the deck to fit your good ideas!

One of my favorite board wipes in a token based deck is Martial Coup because you can either get 4 dudes for 6 mana which is eh or you can get 5+ and increasing starting at 7 with a board wipe.

Things like Ashen Rider , Archon of Justice , and Angel of Despair can work really well in any WB deck but especially when you are recovering them from the graveyard and wanting them to die anyway.

Would you also consider a Swords to Plowshares ? It's simply strong with no additional costs for 1 mana and who cares that they gain some life unless it's hundreds? And even then it could be hundreds that aren't killing you. Also, since you have the infinite combo for Teysa with Darkest Hour, you could also consider Debt to the Deathless or Exsanguinate for a finisher with that mana. I win with Debt without even going infinite. Storm Herd is also a heavy hitter.
