Debt to the Deathless Discussion

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.

It don't really double mana, but sometimes, before it comes back to me, I can have like 5-6 mana untap, so I add 5-6 to my mana pool, free, that I can use on my next turn. (Or whatever, when I need some) So I use it to pay colorless. That's an other way to fix my mana! Before, I had all new Finales of War of the Spark, so it was good with all X-cost cards. Still have March of the Multitudes , Debt to the Deathless that can be huge due to Kruphix, God of Horizons . But it's not enough anymore I think? don't know, will have to test

Debt to the Deathless must absolutely be in this deck.

Henryu Personally, I don't like it. It's too expensive to justify its effects. Most of the time, I see it being either a bad Hex or a bad Rise of the Dark Realms . The only thing it has going for it is its versatility, and for such an expensive spell that's pretty bad at <4 mana, its not even that versatile.

If you feel like you need more late-game finishers, I'd run Exsanguinate , Rise of the Dark Realms , or Debt to the Deathless . If more mass removal, Damnation , Austere Command , or maybe something like Attrition .

EDIT: The card in question: Finale of Eternity

Also Debt to the Deathless , Exsanguinate and Torment of Hailfire all works as great finishers. it will maybe be overkill to play all 3, but 2 would be good. The best one of them is in my experince Debt to the Deathless .

I always enjoy seeing more people make cleric decks, as I have made my own I defiantly have some opinions and ideas on clerics. Mother of Runes , Devoted Caretaker , Benevolent Bodyguard and Battletide Alchemist are excellent defensive options. For cleric beaters I would look at Custodi Soulbinders and Doubtless One . For card draw look at Tymna the Weaver , Twilight Prophet , Custodi Lich and Bygone Bishop . Given your commanders life drain nature I would also look at adding Exsanguinate and Debt to the Deathless as blowouts and enablers for your commander.
