Destroy all creatures. You gain life equal to the number of creatures you controlled that were destroyed this way.
Kaya's Wrath Discussion
3 days ago
Blood Divination , Sovereign's Bite and Consecrate / Consume are all decent card and not useless by any means but I feel like they could all be cut down in number by 1 or 2. And in their place maybe add 1 Kaya's Wrath (or any counter) or a few more creatures.
But I don't have much experience with this type of deck so don't listen to my advice too much.

I like this deck alot, so kudos for that. I think however you should try to find room for 3 or maybe even 4 Moment of Craving . It would very help you alot against aggresive decks like mono-red, white weenie and the alike, and gives you something to do the earlier turns, apart from dropping Treasure Maps.
As for what to cut I would probably cut some kind of combination of the following
Settle the Wreckage
(maybe move 1 to the sideboard).
With some earlier removal, you could survive with one less boardwipe. Anyhow good work, I might try something similiar =)

frosthammer_eden You are absolutely right, correction made, tyvm.
lorenzo712 I've got Kaya's Wrath in the sideboard, and I am considering mainboarding it in lieu of Unbreakable Formation . I've definitely run into more situations where wiping the board is the more useful thing to do. While Debtors' Knell would be exceptionally useful, I was trying to play this deck with some other expensive enchantments like Open the Graves and Ethereal Absolution and found it just wasn't working. With the way Pitiless Pontiff winds up carrying things while ramping up, I always want to leave 1 mana open to keep her a threat during my opponent's turn, and this considerably slows things down. Essentially playing one turn behind curve, starting turn 3. Spending 5 or more mana on an enchantment that doesn't immediately effect the board state just isn't worth it. I'm making an exception for 2x Divine Visitation s but I don't want anything else at this point that costs more than 4. Thanks for the suggestions!

Update: This deck is boring to play. My current Orzhov works better. I'll post later. Glad I didn't spend the money. It is very resilient, just not fun. For someone that likes to get that life total up, it works. I like it over the Selesnya life gain because of Kaya's Wrath and Mortify .

brainpolice I tried the exact same shell you have for the better part of almost one full month. It just was not as competitive as it should have been given the meta. Gas is what you hit the nail on the head about, and unfortunately Priest of the Forgotten Gods just didn’t get enough power from Gutterbones as I wanted. Midnight Reaper was slow, and only triggered off of cards, not tokens so it was lethal. Fireblade Artist is good, but in this shell it makes the manabase pretty messed up. In the prior deck I ran Fireblade, and Pitiless Pontiff , and Footlight Fiend and it just didn’t get me there fast enough. The “nuts” to this deck are simple in all it’s forms: hit Heroic Reinforcements with Hero of Precinct One HARD and swing out for dozens of damage. Judith or Benalish Marshal on the board basically means that you win. It was the best part of the Mardu Humans/Aristocrats deck. So, you just focus on that. Hard, fast, Hyperaggressive damage is what you need. Pontiff was going down and down in value the more Carnage Tyrant didn’t show up. In the meta he’s leaving it thanks to Hydroid Krasis . Elenda, the Dusk Rose eats a Moment of Craving or Shock or just any counter period it made my head spin. Sadly, Teysa Karlov didn’t work either. My previous build also included Seraph of the Scales and all the rest of the Afterlife triggers didn’t ever go off in twos. She was quite often removed and it was far, far, far, too late in the game for her to work out properly. I basically know now for certain she’s a Commander card, and that’s about all. You will not live long enough in the current meta, nor will your board thanks to Kaya's Wrath and Settle the Wreckage to pull out the Elenda+Teysa+Afterlife combo. Cry of the Carnarium basically fucks you over in that case too. So, my battle plan now is to just go hyper fast, and don’t let my opponent get me down with that by buffing my board and hitting them so fast their heads fly off. It’s the only chance I have got to be really competitive.

Looks really great! This has turned out to be very similar to my deck and I love it! I'd love to know how the deck does if you compete with it so please show results. Good luck!

StanleyHartman Thanks for commenting!
I like the idea of adding in the Spawn I just have had trouble figuring out what to remove to make room for it? Any suggestions? I was thinking perhaps removing Open the Graves for one? But its hard because I have already cut down to one Open the Graves and it has had some great value against control decks when the game gets forced to later turns.
I see what you are saying with Drill Bit , my only concern is that the deck has so many cards which I would prefer to be playing on turns 2-6 that I feel like it becomes a late game play unless I can hit with some early damage. It definitely would still have value I just like Duress because while the effect doesn't cover discarding creatures it can on turn one pull a Settle the Wreckage , Cleansing Nova , Deafening Clarion , or Kaya's Wrath before my deck gets up and running and could otherwise be using the mana to reassemble a skeleton or cast something else. Creatures are easily enough dealt with by the deck combinations in MOST situations. I may add them to my sideboard though because since changing the deck up in Arena I haven't been using the extra Rite of Belzenlok or extra Vona's Hunger which were initially moved to the sideboard out of the main deck. So those cards are more placeholders in the sideboard than serious sideboard cards.
