Hell's Caretaker Discussion
5 days ago
Merciless Executioner Plaguecrafter etc. Give you a double trigger and you can sacrifice them to their own ability Or sac a token and save them for blocking. Get a Blasting Station to add extra value damage Ashnod's Altar Phyrexian Altar probably a total of 6 to 8 sac outlets. Pitiless Plunderer for more mana. Green ramp spells, Blood Artist , Zulaport Cutthroat Vindictive Vampire Falkenrath Noble to drain and gain life. Whisper, Blood Liturgist and Hell's Caretaker are great sac/recursion. some creatures that etb and give you creatures tokens, such as Sengir Autocrat . Sanguine Bond if you want to further capitalize on the life gain. Torment of Hailfire to kick em while they are down. Smothering Abomination Sifter of Skulls Razaketh, the Foulblooded and that is mostly just the black part of the deck. The nice thing about Golgari is that there are a great deal of synergies between the legendary and dual coloured creatures to a point where a lot of them are playable in each other’s decks and when you sac a creature of both colours you receive both benefits from savra. A life gain sub theme or mass resurrection are both decent approaches. Buried Alive and Entomb are great! Well I’m sure that you probably were aware of most of these cards but hopefully these are useful to you. I will check back later to see who you chose as a commander. Cheers.

Of course you're correct. You probably know this already, but I think that along with a creature which produces tokens when it enters -- eg, Grave Titan or Sengir Autocrat -- Whisper can produce a combo. The same is true of Hell's Caretaker . One has Whisper out (or the Caretaker), then plays the Titan, which makes two zombies on entry. She sacrifices the Titan and a zombie, and brings back another creature from the grave (which was already there before she entered play; you need to set up a bit). This untaps her as Thornbite Staff triggers on the sacrifice. She then sacrifices the second zombie and the creature she resurrected to bring back Grave Titan , who in turn makes two more zombies. This action causes Thornbite Staff to untap her again. This is repeated ad nauseam. If one has a creature such as Blood Artist or Zulaport Cutthroat on the field, this will kill your opponent gradually with the death triggers. Thanks for the help!

Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip is something I experimented with, but in the end all I could ever really do was activate her +, which is pretty weak in this deck. But my meta is pretty hard on planeswalkers. Maybe yours is more lenient, idk.
Lord of Extinction is sorta just weak here. I mean it combos great with Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord , but how often are you going to christmas-dreamland into both of those two? And Nighthowler is kinda just a worse Lord of Extinction .
I have played Sheoldred, Whispering One before and, like all of the praetors, all she does is get you targeted to death- especially if you can recur her.
Deadbridge Chant 's randomness makes it pretty bad. You're aiming to have like 10 or 15 cards in your grave by the time you play this, it makes that number 25. 1 in 25 is not very good. Like the card is a decent value engine, but it's not likely to get you what you're looking for.
Suggestions for Adds:
Acidic Slime : flexible removal
Farhaven Elf : better ramp
Thragtusk : a BIG pillow to lie back against- five life and two blockers!
Treasure Keeper : good value
Veteran Explorer : never hurts to have the table on your side
Vindictive Lich : hits each opponent where it hurts
Wall of Blossoms : big-butt creature and a draw
Wurmcoil Engine : just insane
Hell's Caretaker : good recursion
Attrition : repeatable removal
Perilous Forays : repeatable ramp
Quagmire Druid : repeatable enchantment removal
Sadistic Hypnotist : repeatable hand hate
Thoughtpicker Witch : f.ck somebody's draws
Viscera Seer : free, instant-speed sac outlet, provides some card advantage
Vraska, Golgari Queen : + is great, - is great, and ult is insane
Deathreap Ritual : lots of draw
Shadows of the Past : so. many. scries.
Zulaport Cutthroat : pings opponents to death, gains life

- Day of Judgment should be good, old fashioned Wrath of God .
- Hero's Downfall belongs in your removal package.
- Given the Death Triggers theme, I would expect there to be some Aristocrats in here. That could include things like Bloodflow Connoisseur , Bloodthrone Vampire , Devouring Swarm , Flesh-Eater Imp (for the Infect lulz), Hell's Caretaker (to get dudes back), Nantuko Husk , Smothering Abomination
- Still needs Edict effects.

Thank you for the replyTheNocholas! I made a lands matter deck using lord windgrace so i wanted to make a creature based combo deck that is also a graveyard deck. I decided to opt out of Basalt Monolith because it's only really good with Mesmeric Orb . I have the ability to make infinite zombies with self mill and insects with izoni so i decided to opt out of avenger of zendikar. Hell's Caretaker i had in the original list, but I've removed it because i have a ton of other reanimation in the deck. I sadly had to make some cuts for other creatures. Instead of Wonder i went with Craterhoof Behemoth because if my boys are huge and tramply, flying doesn't matter too much. One card i was thinking of adding as a win condition is Triumph of the Hordes
