Dictate of Erebos Discussion
4 hours ago
Definitely throw in Golgari Grave-Troll for his dredge ability and his ability to get huge which in turn allows you to find Golgari Lich Lord and use his ability to sac grave troll to make the opponent lose a massive amount of life and get him in the graveyard again to rinse and repeat. I would also recommend token killers as that is what can defeat meren, such cards as Virulent Plague and Archfiend of Depravity. And if you have Dictate of Erebos you might want to consider Grave Pact and Butcher of Malakir . Just some suggestions (: You can look at my deck if you want anymore.

Fluffpocalypse Grim Feast is some sweet tech. Never seen that card before and may try and find a spot for it!
As to more grave pact effects, I know they're super good, but find them a little oppressive so I didn't want to play too many. I kept Grave Pact because, c'mon, Grave Pact, but (i've just realized this) double black and flash on Dictate of Erebos might make it worth the additional CMC.

If you want a decent life gain combo with this kind of sac-matters strategy, the one I use in a similar deck is Dictate of Erebos and/or Butcher of Malakir + Grim Feast. The deal is that feast targets all opponents in multiplayer formats, so mass life-gain can occur if you can force the other players to constantly sacrifice a bunch of fatties. Simply adding a Dictate of Erebos alone would be awesome with this deck - it works well with Mazi and Really Hungry Earthworm.

I play a Shadowborn Apostle deck and find we have alot of the same cards. Although my guys are cheaper than the rats and I am always trying to kill mine off. But there are a couple cards I find handy and you might too:
Desperate Research - I found this works great in my Apostles.
Dictate of Erebos - A second flashing Grave Pact might be nice.

benlow, as its really quiet for some time i hope you don't mind me giving my opinion about the cards u mentioned :-)
Arrogant Bloodlord It's text screams don't play me, besides there are tons of 3 drop vampires that work better in my opinion.
Bloodghast Doesn't return to your hand/ isn't cast so no eminence to exploit. It can't block and the haste on it is irrelevant.
Gruul Draz Assassin haven't tested it yet but i think you never spend your mana to level it up?
Mathas, Fiend Seeker I recently cut it, as it helped the opponents to much.
Vampire Lacerator same as the arrogant bloodlord.

Hey gang, first thread here so please feel free to provide any constructive criticism! Haven't been active in a forum for quite some time..
Anyways, I'm contemplating sort of an odd strategy to utilize Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa as a general. I'm considering Vial Smasher the Fierce or Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist as his partner. Right now it seems like black brings more to the table for this particular strategy and I love b/w removal options but it's possible there are things I've overlooked in blue, and Ludevic insentivizes the kind of thing I'm going for and gives me access to Edric, Spymaster of Trest for total craziness!
The main strategy of this deck would be to give my opponents little 1/1 and 2/2 tokens to hit each other with providing evasion with Kondo, maybe turn up the heat with goad and goad-like effects while trying to deter combat damage directed to myself with cards like Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety, Crawlspace, Dictate of Erebos, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Mystic Barrier. You get the picture!
Mob Rule, Insurrection, Army of the Damned and Massacre Wurm are possible win conditions and Overseer of the Damned, Blood Artist, Soul Warden, Vicious Shadows, and Revel in Riches benefit from a carnage of etb and death triggers. I can also benefit from the Commander 2017 curses so that's something to consider as well!
What I feel I need the most help with is cards that put tokens into the battlefield under an opponent(s) control. They're definitely a corner case and it's not entirely easy to do a search for them either seeing how the wording varies quite a bit for cards that do this!
Some I've found are:
- Akroan Horse
- Hunted Dragon (as well as others within the 'hunted' cycle)
- Alliance of Arms
- Sylvan Offering
- Tempt with Vengeance
- Infernal Genesis
- Reality Shift
- Goblin Spymaster
I'd also love to hear some interesting synergies if someone comes up with any! This will definitely be a casual deck so no suggestion is too outside of the box, please feel free!
P.S. ooooooh! I just discovered Mogg Infestation!!
