Debt to the Deathless Discussion

I would probably cut Death Grasp simply because you already have Exsanguinate and Debt to the Deathless .

Might also cut Sphinx of the Steel Wind , just seems kinda pricy (mana-wise)

Out: Gild --> willst nix exilen sondern in den Graveyard packen, Springleaf Drum --> zu langsam und du willst nix tappen, Ghostly Prison --> geschmackssache muss nicht sein hast genug gute Kreaturen zum blocken, Death Grasp --> besser wäre hier Debt to the Deathless bring lieber alle um als nur einen, Bontu the Glorified muss hart drum herum gebaut werden besser wäre der neue bontu God-Eternal Bontu , Overseer of the Damned --> zu langsamer removal und zombies kommen tapped rein meh, Pontiff of Blight --> Extort brauchst du nicht bzw. das ganze gibt es billiger in Tithe Drinker .

In: Anguished Unmaking + Utter End + Despark + Swords to Plowshares --> typisches Removal Package in Orzhov, Selfless Spirit --> sehr gut weil protection von wipes, Golgari Thug --> kann rein füllt graveyard, Enlightened Tutor --> wenn du ihn hast perfekt findet Skullclamp, Living Death --> hervorragender Boardwipe für dich, Viscera Seer --> immer gut zum saccen, Pawn of Ulamog --> sac futter und ramp,

Rest hast du schon drin.

Hey McToters, I apologize for the late response, my work schedule is lame.

Here's the thing about your new counter-suggestion. That's 3 whole slots for 2 cards that don't do hot by themselves, and the third that is only there for the other 2. Even further, you're requesting that I take out 2 of my 1 mana 1/1s that have flying. The key thing about them is I will usually draw one of my essentially unblockable creatures in my opening hand (Wingcrafter, Phantasm, Thalakos Seer , et cetera). Which then allows me to Yuriko on turn 2 or 3 which nets me that early advantage of cards and life total.

Hmm.. Every deck has it's "finisher" like in a deck that goes tall, it's usually Triumph of the Hordes or Craterhoof Behemoth . In a black deck, the mono black X spell that drains, Debt to the Deathless , Torment of Hailfire , et cetera. For Blue, they don't have that real finisher, so, their finisher is to take another turn to do their game plan and hope for the best. Meanwhile, hitting Temporal Trespass with Yuriko is eleven to the face.

I did order a Dauthi Embrace due to your comment, but, I don't know if I want it in place of Smoke Shroud, it's a cute card with multiple uses. Dauthi Embrace does have double black to give something unblockable. They're both good cards to me. I probably just need the right string of words spoke to me, you know?

I also added a buttload of cards to the maybeboard because I bought some because I was like "That could be good in the deck!" Now I don't have any more money, lol.

austintayshus thanks man!

Currently, I'm trying to find spots for low drop crestures that line to be sacrificed.

Greed seems pretty good in this build as well as Debt to the Deathless . I will definitely look for spots for them.

Thanks so much for your feedback and the upvote!

Debt to the Deathless and Gray Merchant of Asphodel are also really good drain effects. Consume Spirit can only have black mana spent on it but its also decent. Kaya, Ghost Assassin is also a solid pick. Crypt Ghast is great ramp and has extort as well making him a great option. Would recommend Blind Obedience and Ghostly Prison to give yourself some pillow fort defense to keep you protected while you drain everyone out.

olivebagel thanks so much for giving some feedback!

The reason I like Desecrated Tomb and Debt to the Deathless is because I'f you have a Phyrexian Altar out as well as a Gravecrawler and Rooftop Storm you can make infinite bats to sack and you can kill the table. But maybe you're right, maybe ita not reliable enough.

I took most of your advice. And Nim Deathmantle is definitely going in! I forgot about his synergy with Grave Titan

Thanks again! :)

I've been jamming Varina for a few months and she has been fantastic. Check out my list below if you're interested.

Esper Zombo Combo and Reanimator

Zombie Apocalypse and Living Death are fantastic and end games with a Grey Merchant of Asphodel often. I also prefer Victimize over Stitch Together since you should always have sacrifice fodder.

You could add a Nim Deathmantle as you already have every other card needed for that combo.

Some cards that don't seem good enough to make the cut or are too high cost I would say are Dark Salvation , Debt to the Deathless , Desecrated Tomb , Necromancer's Covenant , Zombie Trailblazer , Mikaeus, the Unhallowed (unless I'm missing a combo?), Binding Mummy and I think you could go down to 35 lands and be okay.

Other than that, maybe just add some of the staple card draw and you've got yourself a fun list.

Best of luck, she's a great commander.
