The Cathodion combo would produce infinite death/etb triggers, but with just the cards mentioned, you would gain no extra mana.

Nim Deathmantle requires to reanimate a creature. Cathodion produces and Phyrexian Altar produces , so you are netting exactly the amount of mana needed to keep the cycle going.

For this to work, you would need both Phyrexian Altar and Ashnod's Altar.

  1. It would be a Scarecrow Zombie. Xenograft has a static effect that gives all of your creatures the Scarecrow type, and Nim Deathmantle returns the creature as a Zombie. Note that it would only have these types, since Nim Deathmantle makes it just a Zombie, and Xenograft makes it a Scarecrow in addition to its other types. Solemn Simulacrum would lose the Golem type.

  2. It would be blue/black. Nim Deathmantle returns it as a black creature, and Painter's Servant makes it blue in addition to its other colors.

  3. Nim Deathmantle will always override Changeling, because Changeling is a characteristic-defining ability. Within a layer, characteristic-defining abilities are always applied first, then the rest in timestamp order.

Layers are a tricky thing to handle and are very confusing, so I may have gotten the first two slightly wrong. I can't find anything in the rules about effects that grant effects "in addition to" other effects, so my logic is that these are applied after a card's characteristics are defined.

I'm building a Reaper King deck. Functionally I was wondering that, if I had a Xenograft on the battlefield (with Scarecrow as the chosen subtype) and I had a Solemn Simulacrum return to the battlefield with Nim Deathmantle's secondary effect, would it enter the battlefield as a Scarecrow Zombie or just a Zombie?

Also (though I realise all these questions likely have the same answers), if I have a Painter's Servant on the battlefield with blue as my chosen colour, will a creature equipped with Nim Deathmantle be blue and black or just black?

Also also, if Nim Deathmantle is equipped to a Shapeshifter like Cairn Wanderer, does Nim Deathmantle override the Changeling ability and cause it to be only a Zombie?

Cool deck I like it a lot. Got me some ideas.. Emeria Shepherd & Nim Deathmantle for more uses of your ball lightning cards. Conjurer's Closet can help you keep your stolen dudes around to use more before nuking them. Twilight Shepherd, True Conviction, Dictate of Heliod, To Arms!, Thousand-Year Elixir, Magewright's Stone, Thunderblust, Impetuous Devils...I bet Phyrexian Dreadnought makes its way into non budget builds, sac it with its ETB trigger on the stack. Happy gathering!

Nim Deathmantle does not worth it?

Hey just wanted to let you know Composite Golem can't be in here since its color identity is five colors. You can use Grave Titan + Ashnod's Altar with Nim Deathmantle to make though.

That I know of? Let's see:

Phyrexian Altar and Gravecrawler plus anything that triggers on a creature cast/death. Blood Artist seems best here.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion you've probably heard of, but what about instead of the artifact you use Murderous Redcap and a sac outlet? It would need to be a mana less one mind you to go infinite, but they still do kill the table right then and there. Goblin Bombardment maybe?

Another combo set that I know of wouldn't really be a B/R one per say but Ashnod's Altar and Nim Deathmantle can go infinite when fed the right creatures (of which Rakdos colors easily provides). I wouldn't really recommend using this one though as it would require a very different creature base then what you've got here. Things like Grave Titan or Beetleback Chief.

hmm maybe Wurmcoil Engine or Grave Titan + Nim Deathmantle + Ashnod's Altar?

Another card I'm thinking of is Dread...? thoughts?
