Harvester of Souls Discussion

Darkshadow327 on Blood Tax Payments are Due

I will have to take this into consideration.

Harvester of Souls is here because it is awesome synergy with Teysa. I don't actually remember why Gift of Orzhova is in here, and I had more recursion at one point with a plan to just keep casting Ashen Rider and Angel of Despair over and over again. As with Suture Priest, now that I think about it it probably wouldn't do that well unless against a token deck.

These were some good cut ideas, I probably wouldn't have thought of it. Thanks!

Here are some of my considerations for what to cut:

Gift of Orzhova: Not sure how much this adds to your deck. You have a number of other methods of gaining life, and I do not think the additional evasion/lifelink is all that helpful.

You have a number of large creatures, all of which are pretty solid in their own right. However, I think the volume of high costed creatures might be a tad problematic. I would probably consider cutting a couple of them. Granted, I have not playedtested your deck sufficiently to see what provides the least utility. Here is what I would consider, but you should adjust based on your own experiences.

I am not sure about Harvester of Souls adds that much here--drawing cards is always nice, but you have a lot more exile effects than destroy ones.

Ashen Rider and Angel of Despair provides powerful, evasive bodies, but they lack lifelink synergies and are a tad expensive to cast.

Oh, and while looking at your list for things to cut, I thought of another suggestion: Suture Priest.

First I recommend taking out: Havengul Runebinder, Cemetery Recruitment, Undead Alchemist, Nantuko Husk, Geralf's Masterpiece, Geralf's Mindcrusher, Ashes of the Fallen, Perpetual Timepiece, Secrets of the Dead, Ancient Excavation, Murder, Compelling Deterrence, Liliana's Mastery, Obelisk of Urd, Graf Harvest, and Zombie Infestation, Ghoulcaller's Chant,

Cards that you should put in: Gravecrawler, Gravespawn Sovereign, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Grave Pact, Unholy Grotto, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Living Death, Cryptbreaker, Death Baron, Phyrexian Reclamation, High Market, Corpse Harvester, Balthor the Defiled, Reassembling Skeleton, Skullclamp, Grave Defiler, Graveborn Muse, Zombie Apocalypse, Crypt of Agadeem, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Reliquary Tower, Bojuka Bog, Diabolic Intent, Patriarch's Bidding, and Demonic Tutor.

Alternate commanders or cards to include in the deck could be: The Scarab God and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born

If you are really trying to stay Timmy with the deck, then I won't recommend Phyrexian Altar because it goes infinite with Gravecrawler and any kind of death/ETB trigger, but then again, it does it with Rooftop Storm and a sac outlet too.

Other cards that can be really good in zombies include: Sheoldred, Whispering One, Corpse Connoisseur, Zombie Trailblazer, Twilight's Call, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Demonic Collusion, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Scourge of Nel Toth, River Kelpie, Phyrexian Arena, Attrition, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Burnished Hart, Disciple of Bolas, Harvester of Souls, Damnation, Rune-Scarred Demon, Phenax, God of Deception, Beacon of Unrest, Corpse Augur, Palace Siege, Infernal Caretaker, Contamination, Plague Belcher, Vengeful Dead, Dread Wanderer, Boneknitter, Grimoire of the Dead, Pontiff of Blight, Custodi Lich

Nice one, but I feel like you kinda went to heavy into the token strategy, because those don't trigger your Commanders abilty. That's why I think more creatures and less token producer would be helpful and adding some value.F.e. Drain: Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, etc.; Mana: Black Market, Revel in Riches (with an extra-cheeky win-con); Thiefery: Grave Betrayal; Card-Draw: Harvester of Souls Commander Boosting: Eternal Thirst If you really like tokens than you may include: Overseer of the Damned And maybe Necromantic Selection as an very good Wrath and even a finisher like Rise of the Dark Realms.I hope you still are interested in the deck and think that my suggestions are helpful.

Bezter on Frankly, my dear, I don't give a demon.

angelusmortis Thanks for the suggestions! Razaketh, the Foulblooded is good, although I'm not sure what creatures I would want to sac to him. But if it wins me the game it might be worth it. Balefire Dragon is great, but out of the price range at the moment. Karmic Guide is also good, I've been thinking of adding one. Right now Reya Dawnbringer is kind of filling that spot, as she has a similar affect.

TheRedKnight Thanks! I don't think I'll spend the money on Necropotence or Phyrexian Arena right now, but I do agree I need more card draw. Indulgent Tormentor, Bloodgift Demon, and Harvester of Souls are the main card draws I have. I'll have to add in some of those suggestions! Ob Nixilis Reignited looks pretty good as well.

Cool deck! But I still think you could need a bit more draw to get the cards you need. You have some wheels but not much else. One I would higly recommend is Vanquisher's Banner since you have 20+ zombies in your deck. Harvester of Souls could also be awesome in here! Maybe think about Phyrexian Arena. It's simply good in every black deck.If you still wanna play more wheels, how about Windfall?

What do you think? Hope this helps.

Mandalorian I have added them to the deck list. Completely forgot about Harvester of Souls and Infernal Tribute while adding Sign in Blood.
