Gonti, Lord of Luxury

Legendary Creature — Aetherborn Rogue


When Gonti, Lord of Luxury enters the battlefield, look at the top four cards of target opponent's library, exile one of them face down, then put the rest on the bottom of that library in a random order. For as long as that card remains exiled, you may look at it, you may cast it, and your may spend mana as though it were mana of any type to cast it.

GrinningGrebe Thanks bud for all the advices. I really like Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Agent of Treachery , would try them. Animate Dead too, but I don't feel Submerge and Commit / Memory so much. I will add them to maybeboard and try them tho, maybe we have something here!

I love the idea of the list! I play a similar one, but with Yuriko at the helm and it is a blast, giving a different taste to each match played.

I think you are missing some of the best theft effects with Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Agent of Treachery . Since you are going a bit on the reanimator route may I suggest add some of the more efficient reanimation spells, like Animate Dead .

Finally one of the spiciest tricks I discovered lately is using tuck effects as removal: they're often more annoying than simple bounce spells in a vacuum and, if you play with some mill and "top library theft" effects, you get huge value and the possibility to answer any type of permanent ( Submerge , Commit / Memory to name a few). Feel free to look at my list if you're looking for inspiration for this section in particular!

Keep on the good work! +1 for the list

Azeworai Thank you for the suggestions.

I have definitely considered before Dread Return and Unburial Rites , With this deck I don't usually have many creatures out at once, and I believe that Dread return's flashback may be too costly.

Glowrider and Vryn Wingmare seem very good, however I don't want to go too far into stax, and would rather have just enough to slow my enemies while I can build a decent board state.

I used to have Gonti, Lord of Luxury in this deck, however I felt it underperformed since a lot of the times I wouldn't get something so useful or maybe too expensive for how much mana I would have available, which is why I prefer Mindclaw Shaman , and Gray Merchant of Asphodel serves as another piece for the combo.

As for Gift of Immortality , Grand Coliseum , False Prophet and Sire Of Insanity are very likely being added. Thank you!

Taxes is always an enjoyable archetype. For one person at the table, at least.

For additional subjugation, I'd consider Glowrider and Vryn Wingmare

Dread Return and Unburial Rites can give the deck more reanimation, even when they are milled over.

Gift of Immortality actually goes infinite with Sun Titan and a sacrifice outlet, so that's something to consider.

You have the Reveillark + Karmic Guide loop implemented into the deck, along with Murderous Redcap as a finisher, but Gonti, Lord of Luxury can fulfill the same role of ending the game whilst having more utility on the early turns.

If budget is no concern, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , and Smuggler's Copter are all fantastic.

For a deck with thirty-five lands, Temple of the False God seems slightly hopeful and inconsistent. You mentioned difficulty with coloured mana in the deck description, so Grand Coliseum could be fine.

False Prophet has always been one of the single strongest cards in my Alesha deck, so I would include it.

At last, Sire Of Insanity can lock down the entire game in your favor. It leaves your opponents out of solid answers for your board and leaves the way to triumph.

That is all, my liege.

For my own decklists on the archetype, here you are if you wish to peruse: Alesha, Grave Engine Within the Confines of Law

Fare thee well and rejoice in crushing them all.

Just realized you were only asking for cuts, not other suggestions. So apologies for that, just disregard me if you don't want that feedback. If you want additional suggestions just let me know.

As to what cards to cut if you just want to get down to 100. I would drop Nissa, Vital Force , I know you can -3 her for permanent recursion, but I think there are more cost effective (and less vulnerable) ways to go about it than a 5cmc walker.

Perhaps Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Night Incarnate as other candidates to be cut? Gonti is a fun card and all, but he doesn't really seem to contribute to your overall strategy. Night Incarnate I think would either be a good cut or if you want the -3/3 type effect perhaps replace it with something like Massacre Girl .

No one has mentioned yet that you can steal an opponent’s spells off the top of their deck with Gonti, Lord of Luxury ..

Aiding I don't like Melira, Sylvok Outcast as if I only have that then it is a dead draw without the rest of the combo. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed at least allows all other creatures to come back once.

I am thinking of cutting Gonti, Lord of Luxury eventually. I'm keeping Massacre Girl until I can replace her with Massacre Wurm . I like Lord of Extinction but I keep forgetting about it so I'll add it to the maybe board now so I don't forget.

I already took Victimize out the deck for Whisper, Blood Liturgist as for one more mana I got a lot more uses out of it. I don't like Animate Dead because of all the ways to get creatures out of the graveyard i would have to wait for it to die to use it again.
