Phyrexian Altar Discussion

smilkows on Zombies Beat You Black And Blue

Actually, I just noticed another couple cards you could try. You already are playing Diregraf Captain, which if you are looking for another combo, it works with Gravecrawler and Phyrexian Altar. If all three are in play you can sacrifice and recast the gravecrawler infinite times using the altar to get a B mana each time you sac it. Then you make target opponent(s) one at a time lose 1 life for each occurrence. Happy brewing!

You could consider Altar of Dementia or Altar of the Brood for infinite mill, Blasting Station for infinite damage, Phyrexian Altar for infinite rainbow mana. Nice deck!

I would recommend Alchemist's Refuge, Aethersnatch, Gather Specimens, Insidious Will, Kefnet's Last Word, Confiscation Coup, and Dack Fayden. I played a deck similarly with Mizzix (It is now time to put on your 3-D glasses). You may also want to consider Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar to say opponents creatures after you steal them, or sac your own so they can't be manipulated.

I'd add Fleshbag Marauder and Slum Reaper as redundances of Merciless Executioner because the effect works great with your commander.

I'm sure you know these two, still, worths the mention: Cabal Coffers and maybe Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth to turn your nonbasics into swamps. Could prove interesting with Filth on your graveyard.

You can get more advantage of your commander's ability if you do the sacrifice: Typical sac outlets like Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, Altar of Dementia, Carrion Feeder, Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Sadistic Hypnotist, Viscera Seer and also, sac fodder: Bloodghast, Bloodsoaked Champion, Nether Traitor, Reassembling Skeleton.

Also, what do you think about Horobi, Death's Wail?

If you are only looking for one, then Death Baron is your best bet, although it definitely depends on your build/strategy. That said, in zombie tribal, Undead Warchief and Diregraf Captain are both very strong as well, with Cemetery Reaper and Zombie Master after that. As previously noted, if you are running Gravecrawler, then Diregraf is a must, and I'd recommend Carrion Feeder as well. Add a Phyrexian Altar, and you can infinite combo to win.

hfvalenz on Teysa, Orzhov Scion Commander BW Sac Token

I feel that Fleshbag Marauder and Merciless Executioner are so much better than Innocent Blood in a deck like this one, since you can bring'em back for more profit.

Also, Bloodghast and Bloodsoaked Champion and Reassembling Skeleton, even Tenacious Dead are great sac fodder.

I'd take out Obzedat, Xathrid Necromancer, Timely Hordemate, for any of the above and also Spawning Pit for Ashnod's Altar or Phyrexian Altar.

Ajani's Pridemate doesn't goes very well with the theme, and you need to include a Crypt Ghast, for mana reasons, and while we're at it, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers.

Pacifism is useful, but does nothing to activated abilities, which most commanders rely on. Better alternatives are Arrest or Darksteel Mutation.

Oketra's Monument is a great card for Teysa, and also Eldrazi Monument, since you should have enough tokens to pay for it.

Lastly, I really like putting white tokens at instant speed with Secure the Wastes.

WalkingIllusion: I'm already running most of those combos, if you look in the "Win Conditions" section of the deck description :) I'm running Murder of Crows already, but I prefer to use Altar of Dementia/Phyrexian Altar in place of Blasting Station. Not to mention Skullclamp+ Altar, or Kindred Discovery haha.

Thanks for your comment! You're welcome to upvote the deck if you think it's solid ;)
