Debtors' Knell Discussion

ccmaci on Enchantment Crazy Daxos

Thank you NV_1980, because you made me realize my deck is very weird on how it wants to win.

Considering that, I did take some cards out, such as Debtors' Knell and Grave Betrayal (Keeping Animate Dead because it combos with Sidisi, Undead Vizier and Silent Sentinel)

And then I realized that when I played with my deck, I never really won with it with tokens, I usually only used those for blockers. You know what did win me games though? Debt to the Deathless and Exsanguinate. So I started looking up combos for instant wins, and boy did I find a lot xD

I put them all in the description of the deck, but to shorten the way to win it's just locking down the board and then winning with a combo like Near-Death Experience with Plunge into Darkness.

So thank you again NV_1980 for telling me Rest in Peace ruins some of my deck, because if you didn't it wouldn't have all these combos in it now xD

Daxos is amazing and I like this deck! So, +1 from me! Some questions though:

  • Rest in Peace seems a bit counter-productive considering you're also running Animate Dead, Debtors' Knell, Grave Betrayal. Not saying it's not a useful card; just that whenever it's out, these three cards become pretty useless (and the other way around too).

  • I find a similar contradiction in your use of Humility. This card is absolutely awesome, but not in a deck that largely depends on you being able to use your (cheap) tokens to win the day for you. Also, once it's on the field, cards like Luminarch Ascension and Sigil of the Empty Throne become a bit obsolete.

As for additions, I'd recommend Crystal Chimes (a Replenish that can be re-cast if you have Sun Titan in play), Grim Guardian (for some nice pinging action!) and Flickering Ward (to give yourself some more XP each turn). For more ideas, check out my Daxos deck freely.

Cheers and have fun!

This is a big improvement, but I did some playtests and I almost always start missing land drops after turn 3 or 4, unless I get Land Tax or Weathered Wayfarer. In one particularly frustrating game, I had Solemn Simulacrum in hand, but was unable to get above 3 mana by turn 6, so he never saw play. In another game, I had the same scenario with Gilded Lotus.

These are some cards I think you could cut to speed things up, either by replacing them with lands and rocks, or with more efficient cards.

Debtors' Knell: It costs so much, and does nothing until your next turn (making it wide open for removal.) It's also your most expensive card, yet it isn't central to your winning strategy. In my experience, this card is only good if you can cheat it onto the battlefield. At 7 mana, I'd much rather have Rise of the Dark Realms for two more and just call it a day.

One Thousand Lashes: I'd rather pay half as much for Darksteel Mutation.

Spiritual Asylum: Orzhov is resilient to spot removal anyway. Lightning Greaves for your most important pieces.

Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath: I don't see how any of his abilities are super relevant. In most cases, the net result of casting him is that you get a vanilla 5/5 flyer for 5 mana. That's not great.

Liliana Vess: 5 mana for a tutor that puts something on top of your library. You can do better. With so few creatures, you shouldn't expect any planeswalkers to last more than one go around the table, so they need to be able to do big things the same turn you play them, like Sorin Markov.

Athreos, God of Passage: You don't have many creatures. The ones you do are pretty much all bombs, so your opponents will just pay to keep them in your yard. I can see him maybe draining for 6 life in a game, which is okay, but it's not spectacular.

Spelltithe Enforcer: He's not bad, but he isn't worth 5 mana in my book. Personally, since you're going for pillow fort, I'd much rather have Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker.

Norn's Annex: This card can buy you some time, but it's the weakest pillow fort card you have.

I highly recommend going up to at least 37 lands and 6 rocks. As it stands here, you will rarely be able to play more than one spell per turn with this curve, which is important when you want to set up two-piece combos like Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood.

Also, you have very little draw here. I'm counting Phyrexian Arena, Greed, and Erebos, God of the Dead, and that's it. You have great ways of tutoring out Necropotence. I would recommend adding that. If you can keep your hand full, you won't need to replicate your efforts with so many copies of cards that have similar effects.

Lastly, I would recommend adding Expedition Map to help you set up Urborg/Coffers.

I have been wanting to make a deck like this for awhile and definitely like where you are taking it.

With that in mind I have a few of recommendations, replace Forsaken Sanctuary with Concealed Courtyard and if you are having trouble with saving your tokens from board-wipes try Eldrazi Monument, and a commander upkeep cost of for flying, indestructible and +1/+1 you really can't go wrong. Price may be an issue but if you are able you may want to replacing New Benalia with Serra's Sanctum, the land seems practically custom made for your commander. Also, try replacing Angelic Accord with Starfield of Nyx, its essentially a Debtors' Knell for enchantments and you don't quite seem to have the life gain to take full advantage of Angelic Accord.
