Hot Soup Discussion

The first card that comes to mind is Yahenni, Undying Partisan; it's a step toward the speed problem and not enough fatty problem, and fits the sac theme if you decide that. Sometimes to speed up your game, you have to slow down your opponent with Frozen AEther, Urabrask the Hidden, Baral's Expertise (which speeds you up as well), Vandalblast, Static Orb, etc. Beside that, there's ramp and sneaking in cards to really speed up your game. Consider Sneak Attack or Quicksilver Amulet, Deathrender or Clone Shell; also consider rocks like Commander's Sphere, Dreamstone Hedron, Hedron Archive, Heartstone/ Carnival of Souls for unearth, Semblance Anvil and Nightscape Familiar. There's also cards that help your opponent as well, but if you've more value it could work: Mana Flare, Dream Halls, Braids, Conjurer Adept.
Situations where you're in a stahlwart, loosing, and have huge problems, are different from situation where you're at parity and have equal footing. At parity, card advantage and evasion rule. Chariot of Victory and Haunted Cloak, Archetype of Endurance/ Archetype of Aggression/ Filth/ Wonder/ Brawn, Hot Soup/ Deepfathom Skulker/ Whispersilk Cloak, maybe Trailblazer's Boots or Prowler's Helm, all of these can help close a game. This deck needs much more draw, especially with some discard outlets you have. Cards like Arcanis/ Humble Defector (good unearth target), Skullclamp, The Immortal Sun, Harvester of Souls, Phyrexian Arena, Divination/ Faithless Looting/ Concentrate, Chandra, Flamecaller, Open Into Wonder. If you're loosing, usually board wipes are the best answer. Black Sun's Zenith, Toxic Deluge, Archfiend of Depravity, Perilous Vault/ Worldfire, All Is Dust, all for dealing with indestructible. You could also add some fatties or deathtouchers like Taurean Mauler, Consuming Aberration, Scourge of Geier Reach, Nighthowler, Ophiomancer, Ogre Slumlord.
It's rather hard to suggest versatile cards without answering direct metas, do you have any specific cards or strategies giving you trouble right now?
For general versatility, there's Rakdos Charm/ Rampaging Ferocidon, Gravepurge/ Footbottom Feast to protect your graveyard, which is rather important in this deck, Thief of Blood/ Vampire Hexmage for atraxa/ planeswalkers. For a combo heavy meta, there's Time Stop/ Summary Dismissal, Torpor Orb/ Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Praetor's Grasp/ Sadistic Sacrament to extract combo pieces. Stranglehold, Defense Grid/ Wild Ricochet (which is a counterspell) for control decks. Clever Impersonator or Phyrexian Metamorph adds a bunch of versatility, maybe some tutors to directly answer something.
For this deck, I would reinforce your themes of mill, reanimation, and draw, and probably add more ramp and board wipes. I personally like ETB/ death triggers over big 'uns and tokens, so that's going to heavily influence my opinion. If you were to go wide, you could add threaten effects and Faerie Artisans to sac them, you could add Genesis Chamber/ Grave Titan/ Wurmcoil Engines/ Spawning Pit for tokens, Dragon Throne of Tarkir for combat tricks. Also, to make the deck stronger, I could point out some of the weaker cards. Like Worn Powerstone, I'd rather add Hedron Archive or Dreamstone Hedron; Star Compass is OK, but I wanted to point it out because it doesn't fix your colors, I'd suggest Realmwright to unearth/ Fellwar Stone; Spell Pierce is not too good in my opinion as is way too easy to pay, I'd rather have Mental Misstep/ Foil; Death's Approach can be replaced with Snuff Out, Sudden Death, Sickening Shoal with all the big creatures you have. You made a lot of good picks though, like Teferi's Veil, Flayer of the Hatebound, Stitch Together, etc., those are rather strong in my opinion.
If I had the commanders or strategies you're facing I think I could answer better, but I hope this helps you take step towards a stronger deck! I'm always here

A few suggestions maybe worth looking into :)Conqueror's Flail
Hot Soup is good paired with Swiftfoot Boots
Masterwork of Ingenuity
also oh man Bloodforged Battle-Axe+Sigarda's Aid+ anything that gives double strike interacts really weirdly. so first strike happens and your 1 BFBA turns into 2. You get an Aid trigger that auto equips the BFBA. Then, your two BFBA's turn into four. Aid triggers and they auto equip. Next combat your 4 turn into 8, then into 16.

Altar of Shadows seems preeetty slow.Cathar's Shield does nothing.Cranial Archive does nothing.why do you needGhirapur Orrery?There are better ways for unblockable than Hot Soup, but why do you need to be unblockable?.Trading Post is very versatile but what is he for?You have only two cards to make things indestructible so Worldslayer is a dead card in any other case.
get rid of all the one ofs that cost more than 6 mana, they all do dofferent things and make the deck very inconsistent

Godhead_Initiated: Haha, riiiiight. Hot Soup. It's so ridiculous it might work, right? I was thinking it was no big deal to have Hope die because it's so cheap to recast. But all those re-equip costs add up and now I'm thinking it could be too easy a way for enemies to remove it. Okay, maybe I'd be better off with Skyblinder Staff instead.

Though I had a Rogue's Passage in already. Added it to the main board! Your other 3 suggestions are very good. Haven't added much to this deck in a while, but if I ever see those cards at my LGS or my friend's binders, I'll be sure to get them.

Have you considered Trailblazer's Boots? A friend of mine runs it in his Zurgo deck. Either a land is not played when it otherwise may be needed or, more likely, his Smasher is unblockable. Hot Soup is also loaded with flavor.

thanks for the reply, I run my Haakon deck pretty similarly after seeing your list but can't find room for Inquisition with the dredge stuff I run. Opinions on dredge in this deck? Is there a reason you don't run Stinkweed Imp or something like Darkblast?
I've been running Catacomb Sifter with good success. I'd also consider Duskwatch Recruiter Flip and I think you may want to run Blood-Cursed Knight since you have so many Sanctities maybe run it over Bones.

TupaCuba Thanks for the comment and the upvote. Actually, Knight Exemplar doesn't give the tokens indestructible either. It specifically says Other knight creatures indestructible. The tokens are just extra damage that will keep being pumped out with Hero of Bladehold who WILL have indestructible.
Not sure why I would include Hot Soup here. This is a midrange deck that has the possibility of continuously wiping the board with Haakon, Stromgald Scourge and Nameless Inversion so the unblockable aspect doesn't really matter. Unless you're talking about adding it onto an indestructible creature. I see some synergy there, but it probably won't get included.
Lastly, doesn't matter how old the deck is, it's always nice to hear compliments. Thanks again man!
