VampiricTooter on Golgari Guild Kit Commanders?

4 days ago

Merciless Executioner Plaguecrafter etc. Give you a double trigger and you can sacrifice them to their own ability Or sac a token and save them for blocking. Get a Blasting Station to add extra value damage Ashnod's Altar Phyrexian Altar probably a total of 6 to 8 sac outlets. Pitiless Plunderer for more mana. Green ramp spells, Blood Artist , Zulaport Cutthroat Vindictive Vampire Falkenrath Noble to drain and gain life. Whisper, Blood Liturgist and Hell's Caretaker are great sac/recursion. some creatures that etb and give you creatures tokens, such as Sengir Autocrat . Sanguine Bond if you want to further capitalize on the life gain. Torment of Hailfire to kick em while they are down. Smothering Abomination Sifter of Skulls Razaketh, the Foulblooded and that is mostly just the black part of the deck. The nice thing about Golgari is that there are a great deal of synergies between the legendary and dual coloured creatures to a point where a lot of them are playable in each other’s decks and when you sac a creature of both colours you receive both benefits from savra. A life gain sub theme or mass resurrection are both decent approaches. Buried Alive and Entomb are great! Well I’m sure that you probably were aware of most of these cards but hopefully these are useful to you. I will check back later to see who you chose as a commander. Cheers.

Overall, the Commander choice can be swapped to any Legendary. I don't particularly like Teysa, Orzhov Scion as you need Teysa + Razaketh, the Foulblooded + a creature. Teysa's ability doesn't work on herself and Razaketh can't sacrifice himself. Daxos is the same CMC as Teysa, so they work the same, except Daxos is Pay 2 Life: Search your Library for a card and put that card into your hand. Teysa needs another creature on board, and in order to get a second tutor, the creature that dies needs to be . You could run Darkest Hour but you need to ensure it is on board before you sacrifice. If Darkest Hour is your first tutor, the you still have the issue of needing to sacrifice a creature for the Teysa token to enter.

Daxos + Razaketh + = Tutor.

Teysa + Razaketh + Creature = Tutor.

In both scenarios the Commander can be sacrificed for a second Tutor, but Teysa doesn't provide any value being sacrificed. Teysa doesn't see added value if the first creature sacrificed isn't Black, and won't see value over Daxos with the additional tutor line until the third Tutor. If need be, Daxos can be your second sacrifice, but with Teysa you will want to keep her on board to get any value from her.

Sanctum Prelate is an interesting card. My only concern is what number would we call? 2 seems most likely, to stop Counter magic, but that stops us from casting 2/3 of our Reanimate Auras. You could call 1 in order to stop the single mana Counters and then you only stop your own Altar of the Brood .

Vault of the Archangel is there for no good reason. It is perfectly reasonable to remove it. Strip Mine is the most likely replacement.

Winter Orb is a great idea, I will definitely look into adding it with other stuff like Defense Grid . You should not overvalue Serra's Sanctum though. I have it included in the deck because I own it, but it is rarely game breaking. It is a good land, but most games end before it really starts to show value. I find myself tutoring for Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth more often.

There are 8 cards to win from the LRW combo. A few of these pieces can be removed. Altar of the Brood is not one that should be removed though. It provides a win from LRW or the Bomberman combo. Grim Guardian works with both combos, (as long as you're running Daxos as the Commander), and Underworld Coinsmith is primarily for Bomberman. If you're looking to cut one or more of them, Falkenrath Noble is the most expensive to cast. If you want the universal effect then Cruel Celebrant or Zulaport Cutthroat are likely cuts. Altar of Dementia provides a Mill win if you don't have access to Altar of the Brood. This is a useful piece to keep as it helps you win around Solitary Confinement / Phyrexian Unlife effects.

No, there isn't a particular reason for running Authority of the Consuls alongside Blind Obedience other than redundancy. Bitter Ordeal and Victimize are good cards. Reanimate is already in the deck.

Hi Masterful, thank you for taking a look at this deck. In the text below the deck you can see that I already got the great idea of Cruel Celebrant from your deck :) I just haven't put it into the list as of now, as they are just include cards I currently have. Also note the planned addition of Necropotence instead of Sultai Emissary .

Maybe I'll switch Falkenrath Noble with Athreos, God of Passage , giving me a similar effect with a funny politics interaction if we have an arch enemy on the table.

As for Liliana, Dreadhorde General I'm not so sure she will be able to stay on the board long enough to be relevant in my meta.

Bolas's Citadel I find really interesting. A bit similar to Ad Nauseam . Maybe I'll find a replacement for Requiem Angel with lower CMC and I'll put this one in and try it out.

This deck looks very good. I really like Rally the Ancestors and might include it myself as I've been looking into mass recursion. You have a lot of wincons and drainers, so you may want to cut the more expensive and clunky ones like Vindictive Vampire and Falkenrath Noble unless you feel the redundancy is necessary in your playgroup. Entomb is interesting as well as it's a tutor for stuff like Nether Traitor or Reassembling Skeleton .

I also see you haven't put in the new cards yet, Cruel Celebrant especially. You may want to consider Liliana, Dreadhorde General and Bolas's Citadel as well. They're both high cmc and you may not want to include them for that reason, but new Liliana has so much value with Teysa and Citadel is a lot more efficient in low cmc decks.

Cut Falkenrath Noble . Add Vindictive Vampire . Lose flying for more toughness (and hits all opponents).

What do you think about Cruel Celebrant for Falkenrath Noble

Shinwizzles on Black Rose [Budget]

Hey Strangelove, neat deck! Looks really solid budget deck; you've got a lot of really good cards that have high impact at low cost. I noticed that you're not running Ashnod's Altar . Any reason, other than budgetary, that it isn't included? Seems like a pretty sweet sac outlet.

I see that you have Falkenrath Noble in your Maybeboard, but have you considered running Zulaport Cutthroat , or the classic Blood Artist ? If you're murderin' critters every turn, both of those guys can be pretty useful. Not sure how much you're trying to avoid gaining life, in order to ensure Marchesa, the Black Rose 's Dethrone trigger, but they might prove to be useful in some conditions.

Smart to include Shriekmaw in the deck. Have you considered any other creatures with Evoke? They combo well with the Unspeakable Symbol . Ingot Chewer and Mulldrifter seem like they'd do nicely, perhaps. On the subject of abilities: looks like you've included a few Graft creatures in the deck. Have you at all thought about adding Cytoplast Manipulator ? I've had that card perform miracles in my deck. Steal a dude, +1/+1 it somehow, kill it dead, and it becomes yours!

Have you thought about adding in Treasonous Ogre to your deck? Runs similarly to Unspeakable Symbol , but with red mana instead of +1/+1 counters. Has been used to save my bacon more times than I'd care to mention in my games.

With all the ETB triggers in your deck, you may want to think about adding Noosegraf Mob , since it'll net you zombies, and sets itself up to come back easily, if the last counter isn't removed from the card. Dunno what your budget is, but you may want to consider swapping Butcher of Malakir for something like Dictate of Erebos , which can be used in hilarious ways due to the Flash ability. Another inclusion you may want to consider is River Kelpie , since you're relying heavily on Marchesa, the Black Rose 's Dethrone to pull stuff outta the 'yard. Have you put any consideration into using cards that have an Outlast-like effect? Mer-Ek Nightblade and Herald of Secret Streams seem like they could be useful in your deck.

Lastly, I noticed you don't have a Reef Worm in your deck. Not sure if that's a personal choice or what, but let me tell you, it has given many excellent performances in my deck. Being able to loop it several times has proven to be a game ender on more than one occasion.

Anyway, amazing deck! Looks like it'd be an absolute blast to play, and it can be made without breaking the bank!
