Obzedat's Aid Discussion

WillySmasher on Death of a Thousand Pits

Looks like a lot of fun, I run a similar affect with Kusari-Gama in my voltron deck either your creature goes unblocked or wipe their board, I think the Kusari-Gama could be decent here. I'd also suggest Obzedat's Aid to get Death Pits of Rath back if it hits the graveyard.

Cool list!

With all your lovely enchantments have to suggest Sigil of the Empty Throne, Starfield of Nyx, Mesa Enchantress, Silent Sentinel and Crystal Chimes. Maybe Obzedat's Aid too.

I also have a Boros enchantment deck and an Orzhov CiP creature deckthat may give you even more ideas too.

I run a few cards in my superfriends deck that might be helpful in that case, as I have a pretty aggressive playgroup that knows what walkers can do. I had to learn to be prepared to lose at least one walker if I couldn't create enough blockers.

Awakening Zone is a good semi-budget card that creates chumps. Since you have 5 color, Sliver Queen would be a good producer too. I finally managed to get my hands on a Bitterblossom and that's been a real help too, cuz flyers, I see you've got that there. Definitely consider throwing Obzedat's Aid in as there is nothing more exciting than bringing back Karn Liberated at a discount.

I also run Moonsilver Spear cuz it's fun to slap on an eldrazi spawn and start pumping out angels. But that's just me.

Welcome to the grey side, brother ;)This looks fricken sweet!

I'm gonna toss my two cents at you now ;)

Holy/unholy strength has a great flavoux in an orzhov deck, but as an orzhiv player, you aways need to be asking yourself: could I be running more Edge of the Divinity?

Since most of your stuff already has flying/lifelink, gift of the orzhova seems a tad superfluous :)

If you wanted a lifelinking 1-drop, you could go for Indulgent Aristocrat or Vampire Cutthroat :)

Apart from that. I've got nothing. This looks super good! Maybe Obzedat's Aid?

Stay frosty, dude!

No Oath of Gideon? With 20 planeswalkers, that extra loyalty does a ton. Two chumps don't hurt either.

Also, Obzedat's Aid is one of the best planeswalker recursion spells. 5cmc, but it puts one of your planeswalkers right back into play.

Go for some extort! Pontiff of Blight! Blind Obedience can extort and also slow your enemy down.

Serra Avatar is great, you can sacrifice him to double your life total, or maybe also add a Rogue's Passage to make him unblockable or a Loxodon Warhammer for massive life gain and damage.

Palace Siege is also a great budget card to get back the creatures you've been sacrificing and is, in my opinion, better than Obzedat's Aid. Not only can you get multiple creatures back, but it also helps your devotion-matters cards like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Erebos, God of the Dead, and Gray Merchant of Asphodel.

This deck looks great. The fact that it can be assembled for around $50 is particularly impressive.

I noticed that you seem to have a little bit of reanimate in there (Sun Titan, Obzedat's Aid, Unburial Rites, and it might add a bit of utility to the deck if you had at least one sac-outlet other than Abhorrent Overlord around to take advantage of: 1. The reanimate 2. Anytime you are liable to lose your guys to wipes or targeted removal 3. Just to take advantage of little rule loop-holes like with Fiend Hunter and his triggers (play him, sac him at instant speed so that his "return the exiled card" effect goes on the stack first, and then permanently exile something as his "exile another target creature" ability goes on the stack next.

I just did a quick search on Gatherer and a couple cards came to mind.

Creature-wise: Cartel Aristocrat, Maw of the Obzedat

Enchantment-wise: Hidden Stockpile, Circle of Despair

Artifact-wise: Trading Post, Blasting Station, Ashnod's Altar

Obviously none of this is 100% necessary for the deck, but having an extra sac-outlet for shenanigans could be handy here. Of course, the best choice would be something like a creature that has an ETB effect itself as well as a "tap" ability, but I'll leave that research to you if you are so inclined to utilize this suggestion.

Again, great deck using an under-utilized commander. +1
