Nim Deathmantle Discussion

I definitely cut:

Tenacious Dead (unless there's a combo I'm missing) Diregraf Colossus (I don't think there are enough zombies here) Captivating Crew (I tried this in a couple sac decks, but the 4 was just way too much.) Desecrated Tomb (bats seem low impact) Bone Splinters Murder Rend Flesh (You have a lot more single target removal spells than I generally like to run, though that's partially personal preference) Warstorm Surge/Impact Tremors (I might be missing a combo with these, though)

I'd probably cut:

Both Squees. I think they're too slow. Harvester of Souls Nim Deathmantle (unless you want to combo off) Aftershock

I'd suggest: Greater Gargadon Talisman of Indulgence (way better than the diamonds) Goblin Bombardment Yahenni, Undying Partisan Dark Prophecy

Peregrine Drake seems interesting as a card that generates mana. It’s nice that it untaps your lands which makes the colored requirements afterwards easier and it seems actually better in most cases than the Deranged Hermit when you’re actually going off with the Nim Deathmantle. Casting it is “free”, and when you sac it to either of the altars it generates 1 or 2 mana per cycle. The only strike against it compared to Deranged Hermit is that the squirrels are actually pretty useful even if you don’t have the deathmantle, allowing some busted turns without necessarily going infinite.

Thanks for the suggestion, i think they can live in the same deck without too many problems, though having too much of the combo-only cards makes the deck a little bit weaker.

Not too sure about how the drake combos with the other 2 cards, you still need one of the altars for the Nezumi Graverobber, and for the Journey to Eternity  Flip you need Ashnod's Altar specifically right?

Agree with possible cuts (as i stated under “cut-considerations” :))

Unwinding Clock Nim Deathmantle and possibly The Immortal Sun all seem like they would fit well into this deck. Mycosynth Lattice for an outside straight.

Im hoping to use the excess mana to save creatures with Nim Deathmantle

If multiple nontoken creatures are put into your graveyard from the battlefield at the same time, Nim Deathmantle’s second ability triggers that many times. You put the triggered abilities on the stack in any order, so you’ll determine in which order they resolve. If you pay 4 more than once, each card you paid 4 for will end up on the battlefield under your control, and Nim Deathmantle will end up attached to the last card that returned to the battlefield this way that it could equip.

This is one of those times were the only suggestion I can offer is to playtest. You may find that it is easier to go wide than you realize and you may need tools to take advantage of that.

Also your land base shows you're running Jungle Hollow twice.

On the win con of sacing tokens to go infinite, Myr Battlesphere + Nim Deathmantle + Ashnod's Altar = infinite mana

Nim Deathmantle only seems good on 2 or 3 creatures. I don't think it's good enough here. Without having some really good ETB effects like Acidic Slime and no free sac outlet its bad.

I could see lazav a little higher, as he can add redundancy to necrotic ooze combos and ub has lots of tutors to find Buried Alive so it has a chance.

The trostani goes infinite with Ashnod's Altar and Nim Deathmantle, but probably still tier 4

Thanks Heebs297. I get the idea behind Melira, but Mikaeus, the Unhallowed can do the same to my 2 persist creatures.

Ashnod's Altar is a Card i really love. Sadly in tests it did not perform as well as Greater Good. I’ll definitely add it once i found a slot for Nim Deathmantle.
