Doomed Traveler Discussion

I like the deck! How about Doomed Traveler? It creates flying tokens when put into the graveyard, which can be hard to deal with. Soul Warden is a cheap creature that adds life, could replace Icatian Javelineers. +1 Upvote from me!

you can drop Parallel Lives and run Anointed Procession then you wont need any green.

I'd also cut Elspeth Tirel (her ult would probably do more hard than good), Darksteel Plate, and Flayer Husk

If you're going for the whole creatures dying and spawning tokens then Id recommend running Athreos, God of Passage for sure, keep Doomed Traveler, for removal Bone Splinters, Fatal Push, Tragic Slip, and Path to Exile are your best options.

Big picture, I'd recommend running fewer high drops (4+), more draw and low drops. You're trying to swarm the battlefield and overrun the enemy so you want low drops and stuff with good etb triggers. (think Geralf's Messenger type stuff)

Squirrelbacon I like the suggestions. I may do a little experimenting with the Abzan humans using your recommendations. It seems easy enough to just alter the creature base to accommodate the tribe. Hopefully, they synergize and anthem as well. I like cards like Doomed Traveler and Hamlet Captain. Thanks!

Alright! Updated again!

I like the Teysa, Orzhov Scion suggestion. I think it meshes in a lot of ways. I added in Skirsdag High Priest to leverage the sacrifice mechanic a bit more as well as the one from Altar's Reap. It should give me some larger tokens too, which is nice. It also gives me more Black creatures I can use with Teysa's second ability, giving even more tokens.

I decided to try taking Gather the Townsfolk out completely so that I could go full Raise the Alarm. Do you think this is a good idea? I can't see the Fateful Hour effect from Gather being one that's as useful to me as simply being able to spawn soldier tokens whenever I need them.

I also took out Anointed Procession. I like the effect, but I only had one in and I felt other cards would be better able to more consistently contribute in that 1 slot. Is this a good choice?

Duress is back to being Thoughtseize. I'm just nervous about having all the damage to self effects, but this might just be because I'm new still.

For Brimaz, King of Oreskos, I just don't like that he's a kitty cat, lol. I did feel my deck could use some more "religiousy" themes though, so I put in Mikaeus, the Lunarch, who I think should be able to benefit from all the mana the Crypt Ghasts should be creating. With all my tokens, he should be able to provide some nice buffs. Or, if I just need a big body, he can do that too.

I took Doomed Traveler and Spectral Procession down by 1 as well to fit in some of the above cards. Westvale Abbey  Flip went down by 1 as well, mostly because I think my tokens are overall becoming more of a threat even without the flip. I still like it as a possible route to go though.

I think that's about it as far as what changed. Let me know what you think!

As you have chosen a female high priest character replacing Sangromancer is a great idea, but I'd prefer Teysa, Orzhov Scion to Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts due to less mana cost and a more helpful ability (You won't have probelms having tokens, especially now that you have considered Secure the Wastes).

I'd reduce Gather the Townsfolk and Spectral Procession up to 2x each and add 2x Raise the Alarm. It's a good card, that puts two token, as Gather the Townsfolk, but at instant speed, so whenever you want. You can even cut 2x Doomed Traveler if you really want the other two sorceries

I really suggest you to consider turning Duress into Thoughtseize. It makes you lose 2 life, but you can discard whatever you want (not lands obviously).

What about Brimaz, King of Oreskos? He fits very good in the deck and in the flavor, as he puts token when attacking or defending and he represents the sovereign of the city where this dark story happens and ignores Teysa, Orzhov Scion's plan to unbound Ormendahl, Profane Prince  Flip and turn the bright city into the reign of darkness.

Thank you both for the tips!

I've reworked the deck a bit, throwing in a lot of the cards mentioned but also making some new choices of me own.

Do you think Timely Reinforcements is a good choice over the Lingering Souls, Raise the Alarm, and Beckon Apparition? I thought it had good synergy with the life cost cards that are in now and also would possibly let me boost my creatures back up quick should I need to use Wrath of God, which I think was a great suggestion.

I can see what you mean with Thraben Doomsayer. I like the suggestion of Doomed Traveler because I get to keep a creature on the board when he dies and he's very cheap, meaning he'll be easy to play if I need an extra body to flip Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip. I like Brimaz, King of Oreskos's abilities, but I don't like how he thematically fits into the deck.

Since I'm not quite as hyper focused on Human tokens with the new suggestions, I chose Honor of the Pure between the two mentioned. This should boost almost all of my creatures. Additionally, I replaced Elgaud Shieldmate with Veteran Armorer as he's cheaper and continues the boosting theme for all of my other creatures.

I went with Dissolve for my second counter, do you think it's a better choice? I like the idea of largely removing a card rather than just delaying it a turn. I think I have decent enough card draw with Cryptic Command and my 4 Curiosity to lose that aspect, and I like the small, extra Scry effect.

I noticed in playtest that I was somethimes having trouble getting the color I needed mana-wise, so I also threw in a bunch of Hallowed Fountains and extra Mystic Gates. Do you think these are smart choices?

Thank you again!

I don't find Increasing Devotion a good card, it costs too much (5 mana as sorcery are a lot since you need to control the board and flip ormendhal as quickly as possible. I'll suggest you Lingering Souls (not sure about this, you don't have black mana), Raise the Alarm or even Beckon Apparition.

Thraben Doomsayer is a 2/2 that puts a 1/1 on turn 4 if cast on turn 3 and needs to be tapped; is it such a good token creator? I'd prefer Doomed Traveler or Brimaz, King of Oreskos.

You wanna boost creatures or tokens? Why not Intangible Virtue or Honor of the Pure?

Adding more Westvale Abbey  Flip increases the probability you'll find it earlier.

Don't like so much Supreme Will, it isn't a such good counter and it costs 3 to make you scry and draw a card. Why don't you add Remand if you need a counter or Telling Time, Taigam's Scheming, Index or Opt if you need to scry?

Then, just in my opinion, I'd put Path to Exile o mass removals as Wrath of God or Day of Judgment to use if things aren't going the way you want.

I really like the deck ShadyWonderBoy! You should check out my own deck, it is very similar: Demons Devouring Humans. I have a few suggestions: Drop - (3)Crypt Ghast, (1)Griselbrand, (1)Razaketh, the Foulblooded, and (2)Thalia, Heretic Cathar. Add - (4)Doomed Traveler & (3)Thalia's Lieutenant
