TDemers on No Time to Die Teysa

Major update made, moved the deck more towards a strategy using board wipes and mass recursion spells to better control overall game tempo. Considered swapping in Elenda, the Dusk Rose as the commander given the new rule change but decided to leave her in the 99 for now.

One thing I don't think you mentioned is that Mimic Vat can imprint a dying animated artifact.

You could Mimic Vat the Coretapper (3 mana for 3 charge counters a turn) and Emry, Lurker of the Loch and Goblin Engineer let you bring the Coretapper back.

Joyninja on The More Interesting Athreos Deck

1 month ago

KnightofDurin, good question. I feel like this altercation of Athreos is a little more diverse in term of playstyle in comparison to the Nyx version, whereas most Athreos, God of Passage decks tend to optimize on the Shadowborn Apostle strategy. I named the "The More Interesting Athreos Deck" not as an attack to other Aethreos decks but as an assessment to why I thought this version of Athreos had more potential to amalgamate some sort of synergy by running a bunch of cards that you normally wouldn't run in a aristocrat deck. Cards like Sundial of the Infinite are not usually not common in a Orzhov deck, but in this case it compliments the theme of reanimating creatures that you've killed and eventually duplicating them because Sundial of the Infinite negates the temporary effect of Mimic Vat/Mirage Mirror/Whip of Erebos etc.

This is a very old deck of mine, I thought it would just be fun to throw in some cheeky synergy. I know it might not be the most efficient, but it was more for the shits and giggels. If you have any suggestions to improve the deck, please leave them in the comment.
