Ministrant of Obligation Discussion

Added Phyrexian Altar and Anointed Procession and took out Debt to the Deathless and Open the Graves . I have Ministrant of Obligation somewhere, I just haven't taken the time to look for it. Do you guys think Whisper, Blood Liturgist is what should come out? I like the recursion, but he is a little slow.

you actually do have an infinite combo hidden in here whether you know it or not

With Teysa out, Ministrant of Obligation makes four extra bodies, five including her. Phyrexian altar means you get 5 mana from saccing all them. Phyrexian Reclamation only costs 2 to bring the ministrant back to hand, and she costs only 3 mana. It's a lot of work to get it going and it's sorcery speed, but you really can infinite this

I really like Ministrant of Obligation in Teysa decks as getting 4 black and white spirits out with one death is amazing value. I find Whisper, Blood Liturgist to be a bit slow for my deck so I cut her out and replaced with a Phyrexian Altar though of course that can get spendy so that is up to your discretion.

Anyways, I love it! Nicel

Hey, think about how you can get more value out of Teysa with the token strategy?

I'll give you four card examples within the budget to mull over:

I offer more advice if you would like. Good luck with your deck.

Tips. If you have recommendations I think I'd like something which can recover some value if all the spirits get taken out or if I'm ending up suiciding some lifelink tokens for Dawn of Hope . I basically added Impassioned Orator originally because opponents playing Ethereal Absolution was giving me head-aches and at least allowed me to throw Ministrant of Obligation onto the board for a minimum of 3x card-draw events off Dawn of Hope as they all come onto the board and immediately die while waiting for a Conclave Tribunal or something. Rising Populace is at least a cheap option, and the synergy with Teysa Karlov is nice but I'm hesitant.

Or maybe skip a Final Payment and just go for Kaya's Wrath and recover some tokens if the game gets stuck?

You should look at adding Bloodflow Connoisseur , Carrion Feeder , Spawning Pit , Viscera Seer and Altar of Dementia for sac outlets.

For sac fodder look to add Archon of Justice , Doomed Traveler , Doomed Dissenter , Myr Sire , Tithe Taker , Orzhov Enforcer and Ministrant of Obligation to name a few.

For card draw look to Midnight Reaper , Grim Haruspex and Greed .

Ramp using Burnished Hart and Knight of the White Orchid .

Recur your creatures using Phyrexian Reclamation and Malevolent Awakening .

Garruk's Wake wipes the board leaving your stuff intact then cast Command the Dreadhorde to take control what ever number of planeswalkers and creatures are in your opponents graveyard.

canderson107 there's nothing wrong with that! It's a great card. I have been on the fence about Altar of Dementia but I already have Pitiless Plunderer and Reassembling Skeleton so I might as well try and fit it! Yeah yours is very token heavy. I like that afterlife mechanic. Feels great when you chop a Ministrant of Obligation with teysa and Divine Visitation out and net 4 Angels and tons of triggers.

FullmetalWes I figured I could cut out Hunted Witness and just have playsets of Mentor of the Meek for more consistent card draw Ministrant of Obligation for better Afterlife and Orzhov Enforcer for more blockers with Deathtouch, but I haven't gotten around to playtesting it just yet.
