Nether Traitor Discussion

SavageGaul on Mono-Black Devotion

This is looking good, especially for a budget build.

I'd suggest adding some cards that you don't mind pitching to Pack Rat. Bloodghast is the obvious choice, but if that violates budget constraints, consider Bloodsoaked Champion, Nether Traitor, or Dread Wanderer.

Check out my own brew (Devotion to Darkness) for more ideas. Good luck!

With this style of deck not running Zulaport Cutthroat or Blood Artist seems inefficient. While Read the Bones is a good draw spell, your deck suits Grim Haruspex far better. I'd also suggest Smothering Abomination in place of Silent Skimmer since it plays to your strategy and is a better threat.

Otherwise Nether Traitor equipped with Captain's Claws would generate you tokens and the Traitor is easy to recur, admittedly it's more expensive than Bloodsoaked Champion or Reassembling Skeleton but it is also evasive...

Looks good so far...Here are some quick ideas for you...Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder makes 5 tokens just from casting your commander, if you feel like you run out of dorks too fast. Some more 1 power guys with cool ETB/death effects: Disciple of Phenax, Golgari Thug, Weaponcraft Enthusiast, Pilgrim's Eye, & Thorn of the Black Rose. Living Death & Victimize to recover from removal. Some more permanents that will synergize: Gate to the Afterlife, Genesis Chamber, Dark Prophecy, Skullclamp. I'm not sure about a lot of the discard angle the more I think about it, discard can be very hard to make work in multiplayer. You may really have to go all in on that strategy to make it work well. Soldevi Adnate is a lesser known sac outlet that should be awesome. Nether Traitor keeps coming back for more fun. Hope this was helpful, happy gathering!!

Pieguy396 I got a Metallic Mimic recently and haven't taken it off of my wants yet sorry. I'll definitely do the Nether Traitor for your Ruby Medallion and Thunderfoot Baloth though.

Tapped lands aren't great, especially when you need 3 colours and they produce 2, so I'd recommend that Thornwood Falls, Jungle Hollow and Dismal Backwater should be replaced with 4x Opulent Palace and a forest and island.

Rather than Curiosity use Mask of Memory, it sticks around if the creature is killed and can be played with any colour of mana.

Rather than Phantom Warrior use Looter il-Kor or Drifter il-Dal, if you weren't on a budget I'd recommend Nether Traitor.

Dead Weight is essentially a Disfigure that you can't cast on your opponents turn. You would be better served with 3 Disfigure.

Simic Charm and Sultai Charm could both be useful in your deck too.

Seems a very good advice! Two are needed for using them as "food" for the Blasting Station and alone is rather weak, even unable to block. Phyrexian Arena offer the same devotion so is simply an upgrade. Maybe -4 Nether Traitor , +2 Phyrexian Arena +2 additional controls?

StopShot on Alesha, Who Smiles at Infinity

I see you're running Key to the City, Whispersilk Cloak, and Rogue's Passage. With this much evasion producing effects your deck could easily run the Sword of Feast and Famine + Aggravated Assault combo. So long as any equipped creature deals combat damage with the sword to an opponent you can untap all your lands, take another combat step and repeat the process all over again until your opponents are thoroughly dead. You're also running Sun Titan which can recur both pieces if they're removed, and Shizo, Death's Storehouse and Nim Deathmantle also give near-unblockable since fear plus protection from black is nearly unblockable in of itself. Also as the last person mentioned Break Through the Line would not only give unblockable but haste as well. Your deck seems like it would be best suited to running this infinite combo. If you do run this combo I'd also suggest using Nether Traitor for having haste, shadow, cheap recursion, and being a cute draw engine with Skullclamp.
