Falkenrath Noble Discussion
1 day ago
eyessky: ok, so now, despite your suggestion to remove , which does make sense, consider this with me...
-1 Falkenrath Noble because I only have one, he never comes out, and I don't seem to need him. (dammit.)
My thinking is, the two decks (the Foul-Tongue Shriek deck and this one) actually ARE doing the same thing though, abusing ETB and ETG triggers. Meanwhile, consider that the other deck might be getting distracted with the ETB triggers, and should instead focus on flooding the field ASAP for Foul-Tongue Shriek, also ASAP.
We've seen how having Deathgreeter and/or Hissing Iguanar out during combat is huge, so if I double-down on ALL ETB/ETG triggers in this deck, then I can swing out, lose my Soul Wardens and Hissing Iguanars during combat, get value out of it, and then cast another 2nd main phase. triggering Impact Tremors, ofc.
I feel like the Force is telling me this deck is best as Mardu, idk why....

I can see you are working on a bit of a budget so I will try to stick to budget suggestions, but I am going to make a few suggestions that are more expensive for you to shoot for later.
I think the deck is good for a first run. I understand that it isn't quite where you want it yet, and you have ideas of what you want to add; I suggest adding those to the Maybe Board or Acquire Board to keep others from suggesting cards you already have in mind.
Firstly, recursion is great, but right now I see no way for you to get your creatures into the yard aside from attacking/blocking. So I recommend the following list for making sure you always have a reanimation target:
- Buried Alive
- Entomb (Note this can also put non-creatures that have good interaction in the yard)
- Heir of Falkenrath Flip
- Jaya Ballard, Task Mage
- Altar's Reap
- Apprentice Necromancer
- Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim
- Barter in Blood (Also hurts your opponents
- Blind Zealot
- Boggart Arsonists (Land destruction too)
- Boggart Loggers (Land destruction too)
- Bone Splinters
- Bontu the Glorified
- Breath of Fury Highly Recommend (as long as you have the mana to keep bringing creatures back you have infinite combats - add Sword of Feast and Famine for more degenerate plays)
- Abyssal Gatekeeper
Secondly, I think you need to trim most of the creatures in your deck that have more than 2 power so that you have more reanimation targets for Alesha. I suggest replacing them with cards that have good ETB effects such as:
Lastly, you will want some cards that benefit from all the death you will be causing. I suggest the cards below:
This is by no means an extensive list as I just spent a short time searching based on cards I already knew paired well. Most of these should be rather cheap additions and fairly easy to come by.
Hope this helps.

Black Market seems like it fits right in here. extra mana for prey targets or even just to recast him.
have you considered Haunted Crossroads ? the first time he dies you can now get him back over and over?
i would think about a few more blood artist type creatures like Falkenrath Noble
Blade of Selves seems like it could work well with fleshbag or a couple others.
Ogre Slumlord will help keep you in bodies and blockers.
Fated Return reanimated and give indestructible.
Grim Return also could be fun.thats what i got off the top of my head.

I'm surprised there's no Vona, Butcher of Magan. He costs less mana than Butcher and hits more targets for a mere 7 life. Also Impact Tremors or Purphoros, God of the Forge are cheaper than Warstorm Surge.
As far as the cards go, I'd recommend non-taplands rather than taplands, since 3+ color mana bases are very intensive on color; so I'd advise foregoing the cycle lands.
Here's my take on the deck, feel free to ask about cards and take suggestions from it:

I like this build it's cool. I do have some small food for thought changes like instead of Falkenrath Noble; Zulaport Cutthroat and even on a budget there are better sweepers like Day of Judgment, Killing Wave and Mutilate. Great deck tho.

1. Falkenrath Noble, Deathgreeter, Blood Artist, and Zulaport Cutthroat are great for life gain, but have weak bodies.
2. Harvester of Souls for draw power.
3. Viscera Seer and Carrion Feeder are great sack outlets.
4. Skullclamp. Equip to 1/1's to draw two.
Otherwise, you have a solid deck. lots of well thought out cards and strategies. bravo.
