Gate to Phyrexia Discussion

Matrixxx999 on Shreiky the Cheeky

Hi! +1!

Have you considered: Bog Witch, Cryptbreaker, Dark Confidant, Gate to Phyrexia, Weaponcraft Enthusiast?

And I would recommend to use Bitterblossom for all the stax and mana dinial spells and as a sac fodder generator.

You should ensure you always have something to feed Bontu by using recurrable creatures! Reassembling Skeleton, Bloodsoaked Champion, Nether Traitor, Krovikan Horror and Bloodghast are all good options. Sanitarium Skeleton and Tenacious Dead are less ideal but still have potential. Perhaps Gravecrawler, depending on how many zombies you end up with.

Phyrexian Reclamation, Disturbed Burial, Palace Siege and Grim Harvest are other options for recurring your more valuable creatures.

Once you're set up with all of this sacrificial fodder, why not make the most of it? Attrition, Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos, Vampiric Rites, Ashnod's Altar, Bone Splinters and Gate to Phyrexia give you valuable uses for those expendable creatures (or makes the most of their deaths.) This way you can regularly take swings with Bontu without having to use his ability every time!

This deck is beautiful, I was thinking about making mono-black tokens and this was basically the deck I was thinking of with a few unknown (to me) cards like Gate to Phyrexia +1

Thanks for the comment StopShot. Adressing these cards individually I think Strionic Resonator might be a little unneeded simply because I have so much board clear and Gravepact like effects. Arcane Lighthouse is a good consideration and it will be sideboarded until my local meta sees fit to need it. Gate to Phyrexia is an interesting one, I don't have good methods for killing off artifacts, and in some cases locking people to simply Black mana wob't be enough, this is a potential include. As for Sorin, I simply don't think he'd fit. The down to 10 life is nice, but I'd rather not invest mana for a one off effect like that, if possible.

Strionic Resonator is good since it can double the sacrifice triggers. Arcane Lighthouse also helps you by-pass shroud and hexproof which would also prove valuable. Vampiric Tutor would also be helpful, since you can cast it right before your drawstep so that you draw into what you tutor for. Gate to Phyrexia will also help you remove pesky artifacts which is hard to do in mono-black. Lastly I feel Sorin Markov makes a much stronger planeswalker since he can toss your opponent down to 10 life as one of his ready-abilities.

Ah, I get you. Cheap cards help speed things up. In that case I'm surprised you're not running Lim-Dul's Vault as another tutor.

Also Gate to Phyrexia would be pretty effective considering blue and black aren't always that great at removing artifacts.

Grave Pact also puts losing tokens to good use.

Strands of Night is also helpful since it can help keep your commander and/or other key creatures rooted to the battlefield especially if you have Phyrexian Altar and spare creatures to sacrifice.

Academy Ruins would also be helpful if any of your combo-piece artifacts are removed.

Also given your commander is scrying for you each turn you can practically break Scroll Rack by drawing cards for ones you don't need and having your God scry them away so you don't draw into them next turn.

I hope these suggestions fit better in your deck.

A "Gate card" is a card with the land type "Gate."

Note that Golgari Guildgate has "Gate" in its type line. Cemetery Gate does not, and neither does Gate to Phyrexia.

Other than the guildgates, do cards like Cemetery Gate, Gate to Phyrexia, etc... work towards the "10 or more" gate cards in Maze's End?
