Harvester of Souls Discussion

Abres_Tenelles on Meren Of Clan Nel Toth

Cool, I've wondered about a Meren of Clan Nel Toth list!

Have you tried other "creature death caring cards" like Fecundity, Black Market, Golgari Germination, or Harvester of Souls?

It's a different approach, but there might, might be some more ideas in my Prossh decklist.

MoFi on Double Strike Damage

I equip Harvester of Souls with a Grappling Hook. I attack and then my Harvester is blocked by a vanilla whatever. The creature dies to deathtouch during the Harvester's first strike phase. Does the Harvester then do 5 damage to the vanilla creature's controller during the combat phase as there is now no longer a creature to block the Harvester?

robgould339, I think it entirely depends on your gameplan. If you're going for a more competitive deck, reanimator is the more powerful archetype. The deck doesn't really need deathtouch creatures to operate though, so it might be easier to start from scratch. By contrast, the deathtouch plan is weaker, but it is much more likely to thrive in a casual environment and will probably cost much less to build. As mentioned, I don't even think graveyard recursion is necessary in such a deck. I'd rather rely on card draw to keep fuel in the engine. Harvester of Souls, Harmonize, Shamanic Revelation, Phyrexian Arena- that sort of thing. Combining the strategies isn't awful, I just don't think it's altogether that necessary.

I'd probably stick to the deathtouch gameplan if I was building the deck since thematic homebrews are more my style. I'd probably run all the small guys, seeing as you only need 1 damage for deathtouch to work. Typhoid Rats, Ambush Viper, Deathmist Raptor, Vampire Nighthawk. Having a few beaters on the high end certainly doesn't hurt. Wurmcoil Engine was one really strong option that slipped my mind. Then, I'd just want ways to exploit deathtouch. Pathway Arrows + Glissa, the Traitor, Lure, Irresistible Prey + Agent of the Fates- anything in that ballpark.

projectneptune on Ayli Tribal Clerics

I'm in the process of revamping my Ayli deck into a tribal deck and your decklist gives me some great ideas so thank you for that. Welcome back to magic :) Some feedback for you:

  • I think instead of categories named "ramp" and "mana rocks", they should be "ramp" and "draw". This will give you a better idea of how many draw spells you actually have, which (in my opinion) you don't have enough for such a low mana curve. And on the ramp side of things, I'd stick in 2-3 more.

  • More commander protection.

Considerations for adds

Considerations for removal

  • Exorcist - I'm not a fan because it's only black, that's too restrictive
  • Orzhov Signet - *my issue with the signet is that it's CMC is 2 which conflicts with Ayli. I'd rather get slightly more value out of a 3 CMC the turn after
  • Orzhov Pontiff - Ability seems minimal at best but maybe i have tunnel vision
  • Hidden Stockpile - Maybe switch to Bitterblossom if price isn't a concern. Or, if you add some of the other token generators maybe this one won't be needed anyway
  • Martyr of Sands - Not nearly enough card draw to get a huge benefit out of this

LoneCrusader399 on Olivia glitters because of your blood.

Instead of playing cards like Furor of the Bitten and Deviant Glee which only pump one of your creatures, try cards like Obelisk of Urd, Metallic Mimic and Adaptive Automaton.

I'd rather play Grave Upheaval over Morgue Burst as it puts the creature right onto the battlefield with haste and it can also make certain hands more keepable with the basic land cycling.

You don't have much card draw, add in cards like Phyrexian Arena, Harvester of Souls, Erebos, God of the Dead, Greed, Promise of Power, Read the Bones, Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, etc.

Whip of Erebos also seems like it would fit in quite well into this deck.

First I would like to welcome you on T/O!

Perhaps you have seen it already; this place is a great community where great decks and ideas come to life. If you ever need help with any deck, then there are usually several people willing to help you. Just ask :)

While I am here, let me give you a few suggestions for your deck. Although it seems you are pretty well geared already:

If you would like to see other EDH decks, you can always check the ones I play which are present on my profile page. I like to play with this deck the most of the time. An upvote is always appreciated :)

Have fun on T/O!

Very interesting and unique deck. I highly recommend running Harvester of Souls and Grim Haruspex for additional "creature only" card draw.
