Harvester of Souls Discussion

ThoAlmighty on Tymaret, The Muder King

How about Barter in Blood? Also, I feel like your deck heavily relies on getting a card like Skullclamp or Harvester of Souls out because otherwise your impact is pretty minimal. Cards like Shambling Goblin need to cantrip or otherwise aren't doing anything. Also, maybe more cards along the lines of Lavaclaw Reaches, like Mutavault, that can be sacrificed if it becomes absolutely necessary.

Kothophed, Soul Hoarder May be too Risky to play since you can't always control when he comes into play and with only two on demand sac outlets. Harvester of Souls Should draw about the same number of cards and has "may" in his card draw ability.

I'm not seeing any ways to deal with problematic enchantments or artifacts other than Brutalizer Exarch. World Breaker might be your next best bet, but Acidic Slime is usable too.

Since your deck relies so much on attacking Revel in Riches is a good alternate win condition in case of lockdowns. Another possible alternative is Warstorm Surge or maybe Vicious Shadows.

SynergyBuild on Athreos, and His Apostles

3 days ago

My main concern of the deck is the "competitive" tag. That tag would imply this deck is a fully optimized, competitive list, able to see play against the best decks of the format, and still have a decent winrate.

This list, from what I see, is not able to accomplish this.


I honestly do not know what this deck is trying to do, as there was not a primer for it, nor an explanation, but I will look and see, If I am wrong in my analysis, please correct me, and I will apologize promptly if I am mistaken entirely.


It looks like a Shadowborn Apostle deck, that is using the apostles to cheat out few choice demons, of which there are 7 total, out of them Demon of Death's Gate and Ravenous Demon  Flip are simply large beatsticks, and so are basically useless for a cEDH deck, Indulgent Tormentor is the same unless you team with an opponent, and Rune-Scarred Demon is a Demonic Tutor on a stick. Ob Nixilis, Unshackled is a big hate-on search, but the 10 life and sacrifice a creature should barely hurt a player unless they are paradox combo with Captain Sisay or Arcum Dagsson, and so they use a Swords to Plowshares on it or Pongify and then combo off. Harvester of Souls is decent card draw, and Razaketh, the Foulblooded is actual tutoring.

What can you tutor for or draw to win? Not much I am afraid you only have 6 removal spells, and they aren't very good for these colors, no Dismember or anything else really.

Without Mana Crypt, Mox Diamond, Mana Vault, Fellwar Stone, Mind Stone, Lotus Petal, or Chrome Mox type effects, you can't legitimately expect to pull a win with this deck at a competitve table, and your card draw is just horrendous.

At least I would suggest you do the courtesy of running your good tutors, Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Imperial Seal and Grim Tutor (some decks don't need Grim Tutor), along with Necropotence for draw and Ad Nauseam + Angel's Grace for the draw your deck.


May I ask about you landbase?

Commonly, for a competitive deck, the usually 2-color landbase looks like:

Ancient Tomb and Gemstone Caverns (the extra ramp lands)

Scrubland and Godless Shrine (the fetchable duals in your colors)

Windswept Heath, Bloodstained Mire, Polluted Delta, Flooded Strand, Verdant Catacombs, Arid Mesa, and Marsh Flats (the 7 fetchlands in your colors.)

City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Caves of Koilos, Fetid Heath, Concealed Courtyard, Command Tower, Forbidden Orchard, Exotic Orchard, Reflecting Pool, Gemstone Caverns, and Tarnished Citadel (the 11 unfetchable duals in your colors)

Cavern of Souls and Phyrexian Tower (the useful utility lands of your deck)

1xPlains and 6xSwamp

This 31 card landbase is fully tuned and optimized for a competitive deck, why does yours not run the rest of the good fetches, and all of the good duals?


To be entirely honest, I don't think this is a bad deck, and don't want to offend you or your deck-building skills, but I would hope you drop the "competitive" tag or change the deck a lot, it is mis-leading as it is.

If you want any deck-building advice on how to make this deck competitive, I suggest heading on over to Why Every Commander is Competitive and learning from that resource I set up for new players to cEDH.

JBecicka on Tymaret, Thieving Murder King

Have you thought about Harvester of Souls? It could be some good card draw.

PoorMimi on Sacrifice! Sacrifice!

Deck looks awesome! I'd replace Harvester of Souls with Abyssal Persecutor. Quicker to get out, gives a false sense of security and dominates the field.

You may also want to look at the Gravecrawler and Blasting Station combo. Works especially well with Crypt of Agadeem or Cabal Stronghold and Gravecrawler is great for getting out your demons.

Also might want to check out Torgaar, Famine Incarnate.

lewj on Muldrotha

I think you should have more artifacts and enchantments which can be abused with Muldrotha to fully get the most out of his ability Seal of Doom, Pernicious Deed, Khalni Heart Expedition, Executioner's Capsule, Sylvok Replica, Nevinyrral's Disk, Moriok Replica, Commander's Sphere, Harvester of Souls seems good to just draw a bunch. In this type of deck, I feel that the ability to self-sacrifice is crucial because your sac outlets will be targeted especially since you don't have too many. The Mending of Dominaria could be fun with a bit more self-mill, along with other sagas like The Eldest Reborn. Spore Frog is sweet, maybe throw in Altar of Dementia. The other check lands are cheap if you don't have them. Definitely put in cycling lands, there is the dimir one from amonkhet but also the ones that cycle for 1 mana of a specific color.

Wicked_N_Irish on Marchesa, Queen of Counters

Unspeakable Symbol should definitely be in here. It does both of the things Marchesa wants to do. Harvester of Souls and/or Grim Haruspex can be great card draw here as well. Avalanche Riders and Polluted Dead can get rid of troublesome lands like Arcane Lighthouse. Maybe the talisman for acceleration as well as life manipulation? Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Indulgence Marchesa is one of my favorite commanders. I always upvote a good Marchesa. :D
