God-Eternal Bontu Discussion

Rhadamanthus on Can God-Eternal Bontu sacrifice her ...

It isn't "targeting" the things you sacrifice, but yes, that works.

A permanent is basically any object on the battlefield. When God-Eternal Bontu enters the battlefield in your example, Animate Dead is also on the battlefield. You're allowed to sacrifice it for Bontu's triggered ability.

Note that you'll draw the cards from Bontu's ability before Animate Dead's ability forces you to sacrifice Bontu, so Bontu won't be in the library when you're drawing.

If I cast an Animate Dead on God-Eternal Bontu , bringing Bontu out of the yard, can she target Animate Dead with her ETB?

Any time you are in green and want to speed up a deck, you should first make sure you are using all of the 1 drop mana dorks available to you. Birds of Paradise,Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, Fyndhorn Elves, Arbor Elf, Elves of Deep Shadow, Deathrite Shaman. In doing so you can drop a few lands to speed up the deck and have fewer dead draws. Mana dorks op.

There are a few cards in here that I find questionable that could be replaced for more speed and power if that is what you are looking for. Doubling Season imo is not really the way you want to go unless you are all in on either tokens or counters and I don't think you have quite enough considering the cmc of this bad boy. Darksteel Forge is weak here due to the low number of artifacts and the fact that muldrotha doesn't give a golly gosh darn about things being destroyed. That Which Was Taken is another instance of mully-D not caring about things dying too much so it could go. Planar Portal is a very high cmc for a tutor, sure it is repeatable, but a Diabolic Intent, Eldritch Evolution, Birthing Pod, Pattern of Rebirth, Entomb, Buried Alive, Intuition or Finale of Devastation would be faster and therefore stronger here. As Foretold is a sick card in formats where you can cast suspend cards for free reliably, here... you don't have enough cheap spells to get the most from it. Mortus Strider's ability is redundant and is basically just a vanilla 1/1.

A few fun cards you could add are Darkblast, Life from the Loam, God-Eternal Rhonas, God-Eternal Bontu, God-Eternal Kefnet, Lotleth Troll, Underrealm Lich, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Deadbridge Chant, Jarad's Orders, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed

I hope this wall of text has some ideas you like!

When it comes to big finisher against Control, I'd recommend Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger if you can afford it. Not only it can serve as a 2-drop spell & sacrifice trigger for Devil, but also it keeps coming back thanks to Escape mechanic in case of removal or board wipe. God-Eternal Bontu is good too, so that would be my second choice. It's a great finisher having Devil in play and sacrificing all the permanents into opponent face! Of course if it manages to hit the battlefield.

I'd probably add a little more card draw to start with. Consider Krav, the Unredeemed, God-Eternal Bontu, Smothering Abomination, Vampiric Rites.

In my opinion, every monocolor deck should have a Caged Sun and/or Gauntlet of Power, and every monoblack deck should run some of black's doublers like Crypt Ghast, Nirkana Revenant, or even Bubbling Muck. Nyx Lotus and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx can really help too.

God-Eternal Bontu is a fun, strong zombie. It's powerful, it lets you draw cards and you can get it back to your deck if it would be exiled. Sidisi, Undead Vizier is one of the strongest zombies in the game, since it can search any card in your deck. I always love boardwipes, and I think your deck is missing one of the best ones for it. Kindred Dominance will leave your field almost untouched, making it pretty useful.

I personally don't like Nim Devourer. It costs 5 for a 4/1, and it won't often get stronger than that with the number of artifacts you run. even if you add more, it's still not the most impressive for it's cost and there are zombies that can come back easier too. Lotleth Giant also doesn't feel worth it. It's much stronger in terms of raw stats for it's mana cost which is good, but a few points of damage when it enters the battlefield doesn't feel worth it when you could be running some of the other cards I've mentioned instead. Death Denied likely won't do as much as you think. It doesn't get any creatures into play, just back to your hand. lets say you want to get back Syr Konrad, the Grim. That would require you to pay 3 mana to get him back to your hand, plus 5 to cast him again. better to just run some sort of revival. I would also argue that instead of Ash Barrens, it's better to just run another swamp. Sure it thins your deck a tiny bit, but it costs you a mana to do that. Finally, Archfiend of Ifnir and Grave Scrabbler. They can both be powerful in the right deck. But I don't think this is it. Your deck doesn't discard enough for them.

As we mentioned, I think the best thing for Thrax himself is to get him on the field a turn or two early. Mana rocks are going to be the thing, since we can't make extra land drops with green. Hopefully we can get Thrax down turn 5 or so, so rocks costing 4 or less are where it's at. My favorites are Chromatic Lantern, signets such as Izzet Signet, and others that make your off-colors since we're focusing black with our mana. Altars such as Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar might be the end goal here, given the sacrifice subtheme with the Pact effects.

Some extra card draw might help get us the mana and rocks we need on-curve. God-Eternal Bontu pairs with pact effects for a blowout, Cryptbreaker turns your bodies into cards and your useless cards into bodies, and Midnight Reaper/ Undead Augur are less dangerous to you with your sacrifice outlets to make sure they don't hurt you too much. Corpse Harvester plays triple duty as ramp, tutor, and sac outlet.

I'm going to further push the sacrifice subtheme and see if we can shore up one of the weaknesses Thrax shares with Savra...large creature armies. Archfiend of Depravity and Vona's Hunger will stop a billion saprolings from getting you down, and Butcher of Malakir seems like a good redundancy piece. And it might not be the best, but I really like Syphon Flesh in here.

Also, if you're going for stealth Liliana tribal, you're missing OG Liliana Vess :P I also like Angrath, Captain of Chaos in here (I wouldn't even make a token with him...just leave him up as a harder-to-kill enchantment)...probably better than most of your Lili options if you're not married to the 'tribe'. Last Hope and Heretical Healer would be my picks for the weak links of the planeswalkers you do play.

THERE ARE NO INSTANTS IN THIS DECK?! Let's grab some versatile ones, so I don't start thinking I can free-roll on your turn. Crosis's Charm, Soul Manipulation, Grixis Charm, Silumgar's Command, and Lazotep Plating are some of my picks for cards that can always find a use.

Other cards I'm unimpressed with: Cruel Reality, Army of the Damned, Skull Storm, Nightmare Lash, Mayhem Devil, Nekusar, the Mindrazer
