God-Pharaoh's Gift

God-Pharaoh's Gift


At the beginning of combat on your turn, you may exile a creature card from your graveyard. If you do, create a token that's a copy of that card, except it's a 4/4 black Zombie. It gains haste until end of turn.

I honestly think it loks fine as is but it could be fun to try one of those new Ultimatums? maybe splash red/ and add Inspired Ultimatum over God-Pharaoh's Gift and make some room for some red prowess creatures like Expedite and Soul-Scar Mage?

Zenith Flare seems like a good backup wincon.

Cast Out would give you removal you could cycle away on bad matchups.

Instead of Offsring's Revenge, I've seen a deck use Gate to the Afterlife and God-Pharaoh's Gift. Something to consider.

Brings me back to the good ol’ God-Pharaoh's Gift days. Cool list!

Even though it sweeps your own tokens, I wonder if Deafening Clarion is better than Shatter the Sky here? Also, is 23 lands enough to hit 5 to get Revenge in play very game?

Have you thought of using God-Pharaoh's Gift over Reya Dawnbringer for the deck since it would provide more immediate results on the turn it comes out and costs less than Reya would. Although I could see the counterpoint of it exiling the creatures from your graveyard being a bad thing in a game that lasts long.

Awesome looking deck, I'm trying to do a similar strategy with a fine balance of token generation as well as lifegain. How efficient would you say the deck runs, especially in the card draw category? I often find myself a bit short, even though I seem to have plenty of sources. Outside of the reanimation effects of Mimic Vat and God-Pharaoh's Gift I'm not seeing too much token generation. Do you find this at all fragile in your play testing? I've been considering cards such as Luminarch Ascension, Resplendent Angel, God-Eternal Oketra, and Rampaging Baloths.

Here's a fun idea. Seance . You can populate the spirit token and have some graveyard shenanigans happening when trying to get those creatures back. God-Pharaoh's Gift may also be another interesting include. Ulvenwald Hydra for some land ramping and Blade of Selves , just because.

Not what to take out is a difference story. But a delightful set of ideas for you if you wanted to do a graveyard type shenanigans. Playing creatures that have no right to be tokens as tokens. Nothing like blowing a few items of interest with a terastodon twice in single combat step.

Madcap Experiment is one of those cards which I have as something cute and occasionally broken. Most people will let the first one resolve and I will occasionally get lucky with 2 or 3 damage or brain myself for 18 damage. In burn heavy match ups I will side board it out in a heartbeat but it can just allow for some really early fun plays.

I have considered Whip of Erebos as it does come down much earlier than God-Pharaoh's Gift and gives lifelink which is a bonus. However, it does require me spending a fair chunk of my mana each turn to make it work. I will consider using it as a 3rd or even 4th copy of reanimation once i can get my hands on some to play test.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Some suggestions:

Helm of the Host could be hilarious, same with God-Pharaoh's Gift

Bramble Sovereign is in the same category as the above two, but has a slight politics route to take.

True Conviction could be bonkers in a deck like this.
