Dictate of Erebos Discussion

andylkell on Everybody dies. Right? [WIP]

16 hours ago

Looks pretty good. I have a Meren of Clan Nel Toth deck that I love and it's along these lines. Don't forget about Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos to help with board control. I have a pretty sick combo with Lotleth Troll, Golgari Grave-Troll, and The Gitrog Monster. You can use lotleth to discard grave troll so the next time you draw, instead delve and as long as you keep hitting lands, Gitrog will let you keep delving and lotleth will get huge, meanwhile putting all the good stuff in your graveyard to be able to play with everything. I have mine a bit more on the beefy side since Meren gets so many xp counters she basically brings back stuff for free.

Lots of changes. I cant seem to do the following: 1. Decide between Blood Artist and Carrier Thrall. Effects or more tokens for more mana.2. What to replace Dictate of Erebos with. I want to have my opponents sac a creature when one of mine dies, but I don't know what card would do that, or if having that is a good idea at all? Really need help with this one.

Cards like Butcher of Malakir, Dictate of Erebos, and Grave Pact can help keep your opponents board state clear

dont you need a more reliable way to produce tokens? Or at least put Vedalken Orrery so you can devour at instant speed. Seems to be too much Devour and not enough fodder to feed to them. Or maybe some sort of punishment for devouring your creatures like Grave Pact or Dictate of Erebos. Or you could go sort of aristocrats type of deck with some cards like Zulaport Cutthroat. Just some ideas..none of which you have to use. Just noticed the theme. Otherwise I love the idea and I may make something similar since I do love Jund.

Pikarus on Reanimator in Commander?

If I am playing edh reanimator, the Skullclamp is an autoinclude for me, because as previously mentioned, with 40 life it's hard to win with one dude, so playing a reanimator engine for shenanigans is a really good way to go. Try things like Grim Haruspex,Apprentice Necromancer,Gift of Immortality,Sun Titan,Panharmonicon,Eternal Witness,Unearth,Adarkar Valkyrie,Golgari Germination,Dictate of Erebos,Ashnod's Altar,Phyrexian Altar,Abyssal Gatekeeper,Sepulchral Primordial,Champion of Stray Souls,Nath of the Gilt-Leaf,Sadistic Hypnotist,Tortured Existence,Sylvan Safekeeper,Dryad Arbor,Demon of Dark SchemesThe list goes on, but even just with these you are hitting infinite Mana, discard, creature tokens, opponent sacrifice, card draw not to mention the fact even before you add more cards this list will be quite resilient to disruption. I would add another 50 cards to this list but I think you see where I am going with it already.

Looks great! A few suggestions: - Any enchantment, such as Fallen Ideal, won't return to your hand, as it never actually enters the battlefield, because the targeting is as it is cast.- Grave Pact or Dictate of Erebos are incredibly helpful at punishing your opponents, and also hits indestructible and Hexproof of they have no other creatures.That's it for now, great deck!

I would recommend Food Chain, Impact Tremors, Grave Pact, and/or Dictate of Erebos. With Food Chain you can sacrifice Prossh and his tokens to generate more infinite mana netting you infinite Prossh castings. This triggers Impact Tremors and when things die you also force your opponents to sacrifice their creatures. Other recommended cares would be Hall of the Bandit Lord, Anger, and Fires of Yavimaya to give Prossh haste.

Check out my deck if you want. Killing 3 people on turn 5-8 can be fun.

Thanks for the comment, and sorry I didn't reply sooner, playing catch up at work after the holidays. I'd look at adding Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos. He's a bigger expenditure but Kokusho, the Evening Star would add some real power to the deck. There is a lot you could add to the deck with that kind of a budget, but I'd start with looking at those few.
