Dredgelord on Altared Thrull

I hadn't come across that card before, actually! Ebon Praetor looks incredibly flavorful. I wouldn't include it in this build, however, due to it having a higher CMC than I'm looking for and not contributing to anything outside of being a beater (unless I'm missing a broken interaction).

Thank you for the suggestion, though!

Why you do not use Ebon Praetor?

In Commander, there are in fact more than two black thrulls. There's Armor Thrull (one of my favorites), Necrite & Mindstab Thrull, Blood Pet, Basal Thrull & Blood Vassal, Exhumer Thrull, Thrull Champion, Thrull Parasite, Thrull Surgeon & Thrull Wizard... and that's pretty much all the good ones in mono-black.

The best thrulls are WB, such as Mourning Thrull, Kingpin's Pet and Treasury Thrull (which kinda sucks, anyway), but then you wouldn't be able to keep Endrek as your Commander if you went .

Also, don't forget to check out cards like Breeding Pit, Ebon Praetor, Orzhov Keyrune, Sarpadian Empires, Vol. VII, Soul Exchange (awesome card), Thrull Retainer & Tourach's Gate.

I love thrulls, btw. =)

@ anvildust Sadly that creatures are blue, I changed the deck a little, putting in Ebon Praetor as a win-con, Breeding Pit to feed him and an Endrek Sahr for the flavor. I took out Mindstap Thrull and Soul Exchange.

Explain Ebon Praetor. Is it part of the phyrexian order?

RussischerZar, we wondered that as well, and spent way to much time on Google trying to figure it out. I was betting the whole thing was meant to invoke some sort of early 90's drug-induced holiday-hell, with the Easter bunny and Halloween candy corn in the background.

Turns out that's a Pookah on Ebon Praetor, per the artist himself.

The most amazing thing about it all though: The artist actually sold the original. Whut?!?
