Mortivore Discussion

Kaleb_H99 on Phenax, God of Milling

Bokamoso I really like Eater of the Dead. I'm sure you realized I run multiple defenders because of the ability they receive from Phenax, God of Deception but Eater of the Dead is an awesome card to include with the same mill ability and I will have to find a spot for it in the deck. I actually had Mortivore in this deck previously but cut it out to make room for some other cards and I am wanting to put it back in because of the ability to get stronger from the milled cards which helps mill even more. Thanks for your suggestions!

Bokamoso on Phenax, God of Milling

I see your creature base has a defender theme, which has a warm place in my heart, but there are creatures who interact with graveyards and could make your deck much more explosive than Glacial Wall.

Eater of the Dead is probably the most dangerous threat you could include since it is able to untap itself at instant speed. Against creature heavy decks, Eater of the Dead & Phenax, God of Deception has the potential to mill entire libraries (multiple opponents entire libraries) in one turn.

Other dangerously large creatures you could include are: Mortivore, Nighthowler, Sewer Nemesis, and Wight of Precinct Six.

Lanzo493 on God's Plan... To Mill

Paradox Engine, Eater of the Dead (you need Brainspoil to tutor him for sure), Phyrexian Devourer (his ability will only go on the stack once so once his power hits 7 go crazy and make him big for one last gigantic mill), and Intruder Alarm can all close out games. Mesmeric Orb is pricy but can easily know I out a quarter of everyone’s deck when played turn 2. Thousand-Year Elixir May also be worth a shot.

Undead Alchemist with Altar of the Brood is almost infinite.

But I love not expensive things. Take a look at Pemmin's Aura, Freed from the Real, Sword of the Paruns, Bonehoard, Mortivore, and Slagwurm Armor. Stitcher Geralf is also fun.

You also may consider milling yourself every once in a while to use Ever After, Necropolis, Stitch Together, and Treasure Cruise.

If you thought even some of my ideas were worthwhile then you may want to consider looking st my deck for more card suggestions. !!!DANGER: YOU ARE ENTERING A MILLZONE!!!

i run a meren deck and i love it got a few idea's for ya i'll start with creatures Blood Artist why not get some hit points in when you sac or die along with Bontu the Glorified, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Mycloth, Necroplasm helps controll, Nyx Weaver helps feed your grave yard which is your tool box, Rune-Scarred Demon, Tarmogoyf, Xathrid Demon, Brawn, Mortivore, Lord of Extinction, Grisly Salvage is good for feeding your graveyard, Putrefy, Dictate of Erebos, Deathreap Ritual, Small Pox, Pox,Westvale Abbey  Flip and i really think that these last 2 are key Mesmeric Orb, Smokestack. just some thoughts my meren functions really well and is around where your looking to be in your meta give it a look over Gravedigger

Thanks for the suggestion Madcookie!

I usually play with my friends, thus I don't need much graveyard hate, and it would hurt myself too, considering that I run cards like Mortivore as win conditions.

I didn't include counterspells because I already have a deck running some (here it is: Drag from the Future), though the combo you mentioned is pretty neat.

Since nobody in my playgroup runs Eldrazi Titans, I don't even have to bother about graveyard reshuffling (this explains the absence of cards like Sadistic Sacrament).

qao50 on Mill and recreate

Removed:

1x Hover Barrier - Not a huge fan of defenders in decks as they usually stall out the game rather than add value.

1x Dreadwaters - not the most milling. if you had a higher land curve id say its fine.

1x Fog Bank - same as Hover Barrier

1x Returned Centaur - Not too useful as a creature, essentially paying 4 mana to mill four cards which you can get better value for.

1x Sidisi's Faithful - your deck isnt revolved around sacrificing and I dont think you have enough cards that you'd be okay with sacrificing for this to be viable.

1x Sigiled Starfish - Scrying is cool and useful, but once again more value can be added to this deck.

1x Wall of Frost - same as Hover Barrier

1x Wight of Precinct Six - Better options.

1x Mind Sculpt - In edh a one-use 7 mill card isn't worth. Every card should add good value.

1x Paranoid Delusions - If this deck revolved around unblockable attacking this would be good, but since it doesn't it's just a 3 mill card.

1x Reave Soul - This could also stay in, but most threats in edh are generally above three and this being a sorcery hurts its value.

1x Tormented Thoughts - Again, you don't have creatures to sacrifice, so I wouldn't use sacrificing as a function in this deck.

1x Chronic Flooding - This can be a good card if someone is mana starved, but more often than not it's gonna just make that one land go unused.

1x Macabre Waltz - Not the strongest way to get back creatures, getting them onto the battlefield is a more efficient use of your mana.

Addition:

1x Duskmantle Guildmage - can generate mill when you need and can combo with the first effect to do a LOT of damage.

1x Jace's Archivist - Drawing aspect, gets cards in graveyard, can give you a new hand. Great card.

1x Mortivore - this is Wight of Precinct Six on crack. Plus you can regenerate him.

1x Notion Thief - I'm almost mad I'm including this but this is busted. unfortunately, it'll probably get killed all the time.

1x Psychic Spiral - A lot of Mill potential.

1x Talent of the Telepath - seven mill and you get to steal one or two spells.

1x Diabolic Tutor - can never have enough tutors.

1x Mindcrank - This can honestly win the game.

1x Life's Finale - Board wipes are always nice.

1x Stolen Identity - Copying shit is nice, but the cipher is what makes this so good.

1x Manic Scribe - Not the strongest but can be nice. assuming its later in the game, four card types should be in the graveyard so thats 3 mill every upkeep.

1x Traumatize - Fuck this card.

1x Soul Manipulation - counter that also mills.

1x Whispering Madness - spell version of Jace's Archivist.

1x Startled Awake  Flip - 13 mill that can keep coming back.

1x Body Double - could probably get a better card to replace this. but late game when graveyards are fat this can come in handy.

1x Dimir Doppelganger - since you'll play other people who use graveyards, you can exile creatures from graveyards to make them unusable, while still getting your use.

Cards you can keep but I personally dont like in the deck:

Omniscience - omniscience is op and I get why you'd want it but your mana curve is pretty low and it costs so much that I doubt youd get it out and make use of it.

Altar of the Brood - I dont know how this plays in games, but you're not getting out a lot of permanents so i dont see how this works too well.

Gravepurge - this lets you get back any creature into your hand, which is good, but you could just get a card that puts it back onto the battlefield.

Thoughtscour - this is realistically just a draw card.

Ultimate Price - that monocolor restriction holds this card back so much. Doom Blade would be better if you want it to be a low price.

Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver - I dont know how to feel about this, the exile feature kinda messes with your use from the graveyard style but you can use the second effect to get some of the creatures. It puts all of those exiled cards into a world only he can interact with which makes him good and useful, but limits your decks synergy.

Animate Dead - theres a lot of revive from graveyard cards in this deck is all im gonna say. maybe too many.

Curse of the Bloody Tome - this is helpful and makes sure someones getting milled which is good, but two an upkeep isnt very strong.

Sands of Delirium - not bad and gives you ability to mill every turn, but this is only usable when you can't do anything since you need to have disposable mana.

Cards that should be abused more:

Sphinx's Tutelage - if you make your deck able to draw more this card can be ridiculously op.

Broken Cards you can add (may be Expensive):

Lich Lord of Unx and Undead Alchemist - are both great but you'd have to turn your deck into a zombie deck and it would make you rely less on other graveyards. I dont think relying on other graveyards is good. this could also add a sacrifice element and you could use cards like Altar of Dementia. - overhauling to a zombie deck would be expensive but i think it'd be really effective.

Tunnel Vision - this could be dumb busted, i saw a combo of if you have a card that lets you put on the bottom of someones library then use this you immediately mill them out. That's gay tho dont do that.

Trepanation Blade - this is some nice mill and adds damage and attack to a possibility of your deck.

Extractor Demon - you'd need to run zombies.

Dralnu, Lich Lord - i hate to say it but zombies is looking like the way to go. get more effectiveness out of your spells.

Phenax, God of Deception - if you want your deck to be less based around mill and more just blue black interactions this dude's good. can make a defender deck worthwhile. probably the best consistent mill card I've seen.

Havengul Lich - cast creatures from ALL graveyards. shit i might buy this guy.

Sewer Nemesis - good

Decree of Pain - boardwipes are op
