Doomed Traveler Discussion

KongMing on Boros before Horos (Lifegain)

Creatures you can play before wiping the board should either gain you life or get you more creatures. You should also swing with said creatures often, to keep regular opponents from predicting when you will board wipe.

Examples: Doomed Traveler, Dragon Egg, Filigree Familiar (a true engine for this deck), Martyr of Dusk, Matter Reshaper, and Solemn Simulacrum.

Hey thegeekvapor, It looks like it's heading in the right direction for sure. What I'd like to do here is try and focus on the average CMC. Right now it's still a tad high. What this means is that you should involve lower converted mana costs to your deck to make consistent turn one plays. Cards like Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Nature's Claim, Doomed Traveler, Ainok Bond-Kin, ect. can help you with this.

Looks like it could use some one drops and more utility/removal type cards.

Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip could work well with a creature heavy strategy. Student of Warfare is another I might consider. Dryad Militant also mostly for the stats. Doomed Traveler is solid too.

Honestly, I feel the eldrazi temple is difficult to run with so many cards requiring specific colors. Tidehollow Sculler could be hard to cast with this mana pool.

Could help to run some more removal too. The obvious pick would be Fatal Push.

I feel like you would build a mono-white token deck with Raise the Alarm, Doomed Traveler, Gather the Townsfolk, and Memnites just to swing for lethal, and before damage is dealt Settle the Wreckage yourself and cast out an Emrakul, the Aeons Torn

LordSnow on Abzan Aristocrats

Hey! Thanks for the feedback on my deck. Glad you liked it! Yours looks like fun too. How do you like Elenda, the Dusk Rose? It seems sweet, but I worry that it is a 4 drop that cant protect itself and doesn't work too well without other pieces being on the board with it. And have you been enjoying Athreos, God of Passage? That is one I keep meaning to go back and look into again. Undying Evil also seems cheeky. Has that been working alright?

As for advice, I would lean away from Bloodthrone Vampire. You want aristocrats that will be able to protect themselves or will be able to have instant value if your opponent tries to kill it. With Bloodthrone, you have to sac 2 critters just to make it survive a Bolt. Luckily, since you are playing Abzan, you have access to Varolz, the Scar-Striped which is a fantastic card. It is a 3 drop and harder to cast than Bloodthrone, which is the downside. But it is powerful enough to be worth the extra mana. It is very hard to kill and it gives you a solid late game mana dump.

I would also favor Zulaport Cutthroat over Blood Artist simply for the fact that it gets around Leyline of Sanctity and may be able to sneak in a few extra points of damage with attacks.

It is also hard to overstate how good Doomed Traveler is in these decks. It may be worth finding space for.

Finally, your sideboard looks sweet. You may want to look into Grave Pact or Dictate of Erebos as a sideboard card as well. In Aristocrat decks, those cards can shut down creature decks like none other. Especially when cards like Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite can really give you a bad day.

Pinewoodboy0324 on Shanna, Sisay's Legacy Commander Deck ...

2 months ago

First and foremost, I am NOT the best deck builder, especially in commander. I have a friend that is playing a Boros deck that completely shuts down both my Animar and Sliver Overlord decks, and this has lead me to want to make a Shanna, Sisay’s Legacy deck. I have made a deck 'outline', or just all cards that I would like to use (that I know about), and it has a land count of 37 to keep me to finding that exact 100 card deck. I laid out my battle plan in the "outline", but I'll summarize it for you:

Early game, drop small bodies to block, including Doomed Traveler or use Raise the Alarm for a similar effect and mana ramp at this time. Mid game, drop out Shanna, Sisay’s Legacy or other token generators. Finally use Doubling Season effects combine with cards like White Sun's Zenith to flood the board, then give Shanna, Sisay’s Legacy trample or swing wide.

What I need is either cards to add and/or remove, or a better/more solid strategy to build around.

The deck itself: Legacy's Toll Outline

I appreciate any and all help and recommendations you can give me. Im open to any idea, but i would like to spend as little as possible, just that budget person in me. Thanks and Happy Hunting

TheDuggernaught on Sacrifice Control

3 months ago

Well, I would start off by saying there are two primary archetypes for sacrifice decks. Rally and Aristocrats. Rally lists focus on filling your graveyard with 2-3 cmc creatures, reviving them with Rally the Ancestors and the sacrificing them all -- likely with 2-3 Blood Artist effects in play to win. Aristocrats lists tend to focus less on 'combo' and more on 'synergy', and try to gain advantages through sacrifice effects. There has been some blending between the two archetypes recently, but I still feel they are distinct enough to be different.

There are then color combinations within each of the archetypes. Rally is often done in or . Aristocrats lists are often or . However with 3 color mana bases often comes a higher costs as fetch lands and shock lands are not always cheap. Two color mana bases are often fairly affordable, and you often can get away with no shocks or fecthes. With that being said, the first suggestion for a creature I would suggest is...

Bloodghast. However, he works best with fetch lands. In a pinch, you could use Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds, but they can feel pretty slow. But the ability to sacrfice Bloodghast, play a fetch land to return him to play, sacrifice him, sacrifice the fetch land to place another land into play to return Bloodghast to play so you can sacrifice him again -- that can add up to a lot of value.

Along similar lines, Gravecrawler can also generate a lot of advantage if you are playing enough zombies to have one in play with a fair level of consistency. Relentless Dead and Cryptbreaker can put in a lot of work with this guy.

While not all in black, Doomed Traveler, Tukatongue Thallid, Lingering Souls, Kitchen Finks, Bloodsoaked Champion, Mogg War Marshal, Sacred Cat, Voice of Resurgence, Tidehollow Sculler, Blisterpod, Bitterblossom, Orzhov Pontiff, Elenda, the Dusk Rose, and Keldon Marauders can all be sacrificed for good value.

As far as sacrifice engines go, Falkenrath Aristocrat, and Cartel Aristocrat are the namesakes. But Nantuko Husk, Bloodthrone Vampire, Greater Gargadon, Hidden Stockpile, Viscera Seer, Tymaret, the Murder King, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Bontu the Glorified, Mind Slash and Teysa, Orzhov Scion are all good ways to keep sacrificing permanents. I also like Fleshbag Marauder, Sidisi's Faithful, and Sidisi, Undead Vizier, but they only sacrifice one thing upon etb.

Value is also important to consider as there are a number of cards that fit well within these lists, but do not necessarily read 'please sacrifice me', or 'sacrifice all the things.' But, they can certainly give you the gas to pull ahead. Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat's advantages can be obvious in a deck like this. Additionally, Eternal Witness, Dark Confidant (or Asylum Visitor for budget), Phyrexian Arena, Smuggler's Copter, Collected Company, Return to the Ranks, Eldritch Evolution, Abzan Ascendancy, Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, Grave Pact, Lord of the Undead+Nameless Inversion (also works well with any other zombie) might all have places in different shells.

These are just a cards that might be interesting. I don't want to build your deck for you. But if any of those cards piqued your interest, I can certainly throw out some additional ideas that play well with the cards you liked.

RedmundR2 on BW Tokens

I find the best orzhov token decks for modern go for more of the aristocrats strategy - Zulaport Cutthroat + Doomed Traveler + Viscera Seer + Blood Artist so you can turn your tokens into value and lifegain/damage. Other than going wide or buffing your tokens with your Intangible Virtue, there isnt much of a win-con here. Plus theres no graveyard recursion, so if someone wipes your board with anything it will be hard for you to fill the board again. If you ran creatures you could use something like Return to the Ranks. Something to consider to retool the deck to possibly be more effective :)
