Massacre Wurm Discussion

Baconfish on It That Betrays interaction with ...

2 weeks ago

Is it correctly understood that the effect of It That Betrays is a triggered effect as a response to a sacrifice, rather than a replacement effect, and sacrificing an Avenger of Zendikar would therefore trigger its ETB effect for the owner of It That Betrays ? And is it also correct that any sacrificed creature does die before being returned and effects from creatures such as Massacre Wurm will still trigger in response to a creature getting sacrificed?

Love the deck - been wanting to make a similar one for a while. accordianing suggestions to avoid filling the page.

Origin Spellbomb - double dips as part of "Lay me Down to Rest" here, allowing extra card draw for token generation.

Roc Egg - double dips as well, making multiple 3/3 flying tokens when it dies with your general on the field.

Sorin, Lord of Innistrad - pumps out lifelinkers, pumps out emblems. double win.

Hallowed Spiritkeeper - the bigger the graveyard, the bigger the swarm

Anointed Procession - Double up on tokens. works with Treasure & Clue tokens too

Wurmcoil Engine - double dips into a on death trigger

Hangarback Walker - double dips into, you guessed it, a death trigger. sensing a theme in my suggestions...

Sifter of Skulls - acts as an additional Pawn of Ulamog , but gives them 1/1 s instead of 0/1s

Pitiless Plunderer - gives treasure tokens on you creature's death.

Revel in Riches - gives treasure tokens on enemy creature's death, and an alternate win con

Sacred Mesa - also triggers a sac proc each turn you keep it around

Hidden Stockpile - a sac outlet that grants creatures.

Elspeth, Sun's Champion - pumps out tokens 3 at a time, or wide down the fatties. or both.

Twilight Drover - make tokens when tokens die. the cycle continues.

Custodi Soulbinders - makes tokens based on how many creatures were in play.

White Sun's Zenith - EoT mana dump for all the tokens. follow up with general cast, swing.

Entrapment Maneuver - force a solo attacker to die, makes tokens. handy little overlooked combat trick.

Legion's Landing  Flip - makes a single token for 1. lingers a bit, then turns into a land that makes tokens.

Lingering Souls - kind of a staple of Orzhov spirits, was kinda supprised not to see it.

Luminarch Ascension - stall to make stupidly cheap angels.

Massacre Wurm - each creature of theirs that dies will take another nibble out of their health. it all adds up.

Shadows of the Past - lets you dig quickly through your deck with aenough death effects. doubles as a recurable life drain effect once your yard is deep enough

Sangromancer - death is life. who knew?

Pious Evangel  Flip doesn't look it, but his flip is another Zulaport Cutthroat for your deck.

Bloodchief Ascension starts out small, but starts draining hard once it gets rolling.

Martyr's Bond is Butcher of Malakir for ALL permanent types you control.

gravepact and / or Dictate of Erebos act as non-wrathable butchers as well.

Vampiric Rites is a solid, cheap card draw engine for tokens.

Thallid Soothsayer is it's legged, slightly more expensive brother (no life gain, but no black mana cost. more expensive, but has legs. bit of give and take, really)

Perilous Myr - can be a decent source of colorless burn as needed, when paired with a good reanimation engine.

Seraph of the Scales - this card is solid, if not amazing, so I was rather suprised to not see it here.

Yosei, the Morning Star - either lock down 2 opponents for a turn, or one opponenet for 2 turns. either way is a solid win.

Archon of Justice - exile a threat on death. simple enough.

Ashen Rider - triggers coming and going, but kinda pricey mana wise. worth looking at if nothing else.

Kokusho, the Evening Star - drain ALL THE THINGS!

Solemn Simulacrum - goes in most decks, didn't see it here so I figured I'd mention it.

Vindictive Lich - gives alot of options for a single death effect.

Oh i really like that Night Incarnate that's something I'll have to track down for sure. The Massacre Wurm I'm not sure at that price point... brutal? Absolutely. But I'm with you that the incarnate is more flexible.

I play Night Incarnate in my Muldrotha to keep aggro decks crying. You can evoke him for instant action or cast it normally and threaten to feed him to a sac-outlet if some elf or goblin deck tries to harm you.

Massacre Wurm might also help for that and may win the game. But night incarnate is way more flexible.

Gadianten on Teysa, Queen of Death

You have had some very good suggestions provided, particularly Athreos, God of Passage and Massacre Wurm ; while not quite of the same caliber, Yosei, the Morning Star seems like a nice fit and Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is a good sacrifice outlet and blocker. Elenda, the Dusk Rose synergizes so well it seems custom made for your commander. If you need a little recursion consider Gift of Immortality to abuse sacrifice outlets.

Bloodghast with Skullclamp is crazy good. 1 mana draw 4, then make your land drop and do it again. Sun Titan , Massacre Wurm , Kokusho, the Evening Star also work really well in my build.

Do you have a budget? If not Life from the Loam and Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger are good additions for mana ramping.

Ravenous Chupacabra is useful for removal.

Lastly, while really pricey Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Massacre Wurm can be really nasty.

Other than that I can't think of anything! Good luck!

I like this one. I think your description is accurate... ramp, haste, beat face. The deck is slow to get going, but it can close out games quickly.

One recommendation:

-1 Massacre Wurm

+1 Kresh the Bloodbraided

Kresh is very synergistic with the deck. He would act as a secondary wincon, whereas the Wurm is merely a nice utility card.
