Phyrexian Reclamation Discussion

Frank_Glascock Awesome, both Cover of Darkness and Bloodghast are fantastic in this deck.

In terms of board wipe protections - Eldrazi Monument is very close to being included in my deck. I've been looking into it for awhile and I may just pick up a copy and see how it does. The evasion it gives and protection is perfect.

Phyrexian Reclamation is going in. Not sure what it is replacing yet, but I do need it. I was neutral on the card at first but after the last two weeks of more play-testing I realized it should be an auto-include. Luckily, my deck has been going off in every game I've played and my board state quickly gets out of control. Phyrexian Reclamation makes sure I can come back to that state if I lose it - and with low CMC vamps it is worth it.

For this version of the deck in particular I don't find that Sangromancer or Pawn of Ulamog are worth it. I would consider dropping a two CMC vamp for Bloodcrazed Paladin and Dark Prophecy & Scapegoat are both solid cards that could be considered in the future.

I would definitely cut Bloodline Necromancer. Sweet that it enters the battlefield but 5 CMC is way to high for a creature in this deck that doesn't anthem your whole board. Plus, with mostly low CMC vamps that is not worth it.

Voldaren Pariah  Flip is fine, but again, for that CMC, I need the creature to be a type of lord. Or have an effect like Malakir Bloodwitch which is a win-con in itself.

Love Vampire Nocturnus, but I think he is too risky in mardu. That is your call though, depending on your deck. He could be worth it.

So far, I havent used Reconnaissance to its full potential, but I'm confident it will be strong. Lately I've been winning my pods with Cover of Darkness combined with Shared Animosity. Together, I take out one or even two opponents in one turn.

Hey!

I think you could cut glacial chasm and ice floe

Maybe add Maze of Ith or Thaumatic Compass  Flip

Revoke Existence/Fate Forgotten could be Forsake the Worldly or Return to Dust. I think the instant speed is worth the extra mana

cut distress, single card discard in commander is hard to use effectivly. If you want this type of effect add Sadistic Hypnotist.

maybe cut Feast of Blood for another instant speed kill spell like Path to Exile or Murderous Cut

maybe cut Mardu Banner for Mind Stone or Hedron Archive.

swap Mortify/Unmake for Anguished Unmaking or Utter End

Cut Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet for being to expensive and not inpacting the board fast enough.

Add some sweet sweet card draw like, Night's Whisper, Read the Bones, Painful Truths, Phyrexian Arena.

Add some recurision like Phyrexian Reclamation, Sun Titan (maybe), Bishop of Rebirth (Definitly!)

Add some pump effects like Shared Animosity, Cathars' Crusade,

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is good, maybe find a spot for him over Mathas, Fiend Seeker maybe?

Well that's a lot of suggestions, if you'd like to debate any of them I'd be more than happy to!

Good luck spreading vampirism!

Ah, and another cards you could possibly cut are:

Golgari Charm: I simply think you have better choices than this, for example Decree of Pain which also fits nicely!

Another nice draw engine is the new Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip which also works as sac outlet and lifegain in the end!And a last suggestion would be Phyrexian Reclamation which adds huge value as a recursion card!

Sorry for the double post, but I couldn't hold those suggestions back!

I put Bloodghast into the deck along with Cover of Darkness.

Exclude Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Bloodghast, Falkenrath Aristocrat, Blood Artist, Boros Charm, and Teferi's Protection which you are already playing.

What do you think of these board wipe protection cards that I am playing? They are:

Eldrazi Monument, Dark Prophecy, Phyrexian Reclamation, Scapegoat, Athreos, God of Passage, Bloodcrazed Paladin, Sangromancer, and Pawn of Ulamog.

I am surprised you are not playing Phyrexian Reclamation.

You have Malakir Bloodwitch which I also play. My curve is 2.54 so I try to avoid the higher cost vampires. I am playing Voldaren Pariah  Flip, Bloodline Necromancer and Vampire Nocturnus? Have you tried any of these? What would you cut?

Makes sense. So it's all the mechanics. In that case, it's really up to how you want to go about recursion. There are many options that drop creatures directly into play like Strands of Night, or something like Phyrexian Reclamation that are cheap, but only go to your hand. Victimize could work well since you're generating tokens, same with Proteus Staff which can work if you don't mind the randomness.

ClockworkSwordfish on Bontu the Menace

You should ensure you always have something to feed Bontu by using recurrable creatures! Reassembling Skeleton, Bloodsoaked Champion, Nether Traitor, Krovikan Horror and Bloodghast are all good options. Sanitarium Skeleton and Tenacious Dead are less ideal but still have potential. Perhaps Gravecrawler, depending on how many zombies you end up with.

Phyrexian Reclamation, Disturbed Burial, Palace Siege and Grim Harvest are other options for recurring your more valuable creatures.

Once you're set up with all of this sacrificial fodder, why not make the most of it? Attrition, Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos, Vampiric Rites, Ashnod's Altar, Bone Splinters and Gate to Phyrexia give you valuable uses for those expendable creatures (or makes the most of their deaths.) This way you can regularly take swings with Bontu without having to use his ability every time!

Welcome to EDH! How's this format treating you so far? How is it in comparison to other formats? And I love that commander too, even the art is beautiful. And besides my suggestions to make the deck stronger, you should look at "https://edhrec.com" to check out all the orzhov commanders and what cards are good for this commander. Check out "http://www.smileylich.com/mtg/magocracy/Magocracy_G1.html" as well for anything you can't find in the gatherer database. And look at "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Im1VuV7-qSI", I thought that was a fun theory but that could just be my interest in math.

Anyway, onto my arguments for a better deck. Like Mortify or Hero's Downfall instead of Murder? Or Unmake/ Ruthless Disposal v Eyeblight's Ending/ Bone Splinters? Gotta love that removal. Forsake the Worldly has become a favorite of mine, I was so happy to see that in your deck. There's also some other cards like Utter End, Pontiff of Blight, etc that fits your theme well. I also love non-combat victories, so I would add more cards like Zulaport Cutthroat and Debt to the Deathless.

Now onto the hard decisions. Like High Priest of Penance v Angel of Deliverance. Each has it's own pros and cons, but I thought I should argue for it. I would also replace Unraveling Mummy as it only supports Khenra Eternal and Gravedigger. I'd argue for Gifted Aetherborn or Vampire Nighthawk instead. I like where you were going with Gravedigger though, everyone needs some recursion. I'd argue for Phyrexian Reclamation or Ravos, Soultender to keep with the recursion, or load up some reanimation with Dread Return, Stitch Together, or Phyrexian Delver to keep with the ETB (enter the battlefield) effects. And if you want another general theme for the deck, consider Panharmonicon or Skybind. Lastly, you could include an infinite combo to make it more competitive, like Emeria Shepherd + Kor Cartographer to ramp all your Plains out.

So yah. I still love the deck and upvoted it, I just wanted to argue some cards and be devil's advocate. Also, EDH is my favorite format and I'm always here, so text me if you've any questions or need more help. Hope this helps

Phyrexian Reclamation puts creatures back into your hand so you can recast them and trigger Edgar Markov's eminence ability. For protection from wraths, maybe try Boros Charm. I have also made this deck but more of a mid range build if you want to check it out on my profile.
