God-Pharaoh's Faithful Discussion

I would also suggest Perimeter Captain in the sideboard against decks that are more aggressive than yours (I know there is few).

@Force_of_Willb: Twilight Prophet has life drain, card draw, is a vampire... and cost $10 :( Celestial Force is ridiculously expensive but may replace True Conviction, but I feel as if True Conviction offers more value for the cost. Fumigate is good as it combines both gains life and wipes. Thanks
@alexoak: Serra Ascendant is super good, but this is more of a casual deck and the card is very expensive. I originally had Vampire Cutthroat but replaced him with other one drops, and God-Pharaoh's Faithful seems underwhelming, but the rest of the cards good, Authority of the Consuls in particular. Thanks for the recomendations

I would definitely recommend a few one drops: Soulmender is just a good drop in the deck, giving you a free lifegain trigger every time.Vampire Cutthroat is another great, especially as a T1 drop, because its presumable he can swing in for some sweet, sweet lifelink damage after you drop Karlov on T2.God-Pharaoh's Faithful could also be useful with a high enough density of black spells.Nyx-Fleece Ram is also an all-star in this deckAuthority of the Consuls proves to be another effective drop, providing similar effects to both Blind Obedience and Soul Warden

Not sure about champion of wits in this build. Its too weak. The goal it to protect the plainswalkers while they out value the opponent and champion is a great card but doesnt do a great job of that. As silly as this sounds, God-Pharaoh's Faithful seems decent since it gains life and dodges most cheap removal and is an excellent blocker. Too janky?
Id also go down 1 dovin Baan for more defensive creatures.

18 Lands is absurdly low, even for aggro decks. You'll want 22-24 in a aggro/midrange deck like this.
As far as under performing cards, I recommend removing God-Pharaoh's Faithful, Those Who Serve, Unraveling Mummy, and all of the artifacts in the deck. To a lesser extent, Lord of the Accursed typically under performs, unless the first one lives through the turn and you can drop a second one right after.
I suggest adding 4 Dread Wanderer, 2 more Plague Belchers, 2 more Binding Mummies. Also, 4 Liliana's Mastery is too good to pass up. After the first resolves, it puts down 6/6 worth of stats and pumps all your other zombies as well. If you play a second one, it adds 8/8 worth of stats to the board and your other zombies have +2/+2.

Thanks for the +1 and the constructive feedback. I agree with you that Yoked Ox is very vanilla and could be replaced with something more useful. Not Disowned Ancestor though, he is already in there. As I do not have any spells that target creatures specifically, Lagonna-Band Trailblazer does not seem to fit very well either. I am casting some black spells now and then though, so God-Pharaoh's Faithful could be valuable to me. I will look into it. Thanks again!

Might as well switch out Yoked Ox for something like Disowned Ancestor or God-Pharaoh's Faithful. Even Lagonna-Band Trailblazer has something to offer and all three should be easy to get for free from friends or something. All-in-all I love the deck and want to build with him sometime... +1 for me!
