Target player sacrifices a creature, then gains life equal to that creature's toughness.
Okay! After much playtesting I have come to agree that Indulgent Tormentor
and Hall of Triumph
could be replaced with better cards. Took them out, for +1 Devour Flesh
, +1 Desecration Demon
and +1 Master of the Feast
. The curve graph now looks very pretty.
@Dreno33: I love Athreos, God of Passage
- this deck is based on my Orzhov Athreos build getting out of hand which was super fun and I will probably go back to at some point. However - this build is going to stay pure mono-b and focused. Check out getting out of hand to see my Athreos thoughts.
Hmm... Sideboard... Well if Hexproof is your fancy, Aegis of the Gods will save you from Devour Flesh , burn decks, and mill decks. I always like Selesnya Charm since it exiles just about any major threat in the format (and also protects from Devour Flesh with the token). I would mainly focus on stopping Flying creatures since you have a glaring weakness to them. I personally am a huge fan of Deadly Recluse since it kills everything that's not indestructible (there's also Plummet ). Board wipes are another thing that could wreck you. I see you have Ajani's Presence in the main, very good choice, but if you need added support, Rootborn Defenses and/or Ready / Willing are excellent. Sorry for all these RTR block suggestions, I'll try to keep rotation in mind. Glare of Heresy rids you of Brimaz, Elspeth, D-Sphere, Banishing Light, and much much more. I know it's from M14 but Imposing Sovereign is such an amazing card against blitz decks, too good to not include. That's all I have at the moment, I hope this was helpful.
Then I run away and cry
Here are the current tests:
I feel that one Anger of the Gods fits main boards in current metagame. Very useful against Affinity, Pod, Naya Zoo, tribal decks, etc, and is almost never a dead card. OTOH, I think I need one more heavy spot removal, especially when playing Jund. Sometimes, I have a Tarmogoyf on the battlefield and just a Lightning Bolt in hand. Not pretty :)
I would suggest more Instant speed removal. Ultimate Price , Bile Blight , Devour Flesh all work really well and at instant speed. Being able to remove something before it becomes a problem on your own turn is always good. I would also suggest Hero's Downfall but i am not sure what kind of budget you are on. But cool deck and awesome idea! +1 from me!
