Profaner of the Dead Discussion
3 days ago
Can you please comment on a few cards with your thoughts and playtesting results? It'll be helpful to me with my deck Grave Impermanents: Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle I def need ramp. This good for you? Profaner of the Dead I don't have high toughness in my deck but I do consider it. Loaming Shaman If I could more reliably flash this I'd play it. I do have Alchemist's Refuge and Winding Canyons though. Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir Again, flash is good for me because I run 100 permanents and I need speed wherever I can find it. How's it been for you? Taigam, Sidisi's Hand (I use Underrealm Lich) I almost won't even hear arguments between these two for my deck. Underrealm Lich is an allstar. And no I can't run both. Liliana, Death's Majesty I've run it. Cut it. added it. Cut it. Without just knee jerk responding, think about how she's been for you and lmk. I'm not sold. I would be if the deck was Muldrotha and if it was all permanents. Shapers' Sanctuary this actually good enough for an inclusion?

Possible cards to add: Island, Wall of Mist, Orator of Ojutai, Nivix Barrier, Monastery Flock, Jeskai Barricade, Geist of the Archives, Dragon's Eye Sentry, Doorkeeper, Sylvan Caryatid, Profaner of the Dead, Triton Tactics, Abzan Beastmaster, Bastion Protector, Lightning Greaves, Kindred Boon, Kindred Summons, Valorous Stance, Dive Down, Mizzium Skin, Sight of the Scalelords, Guard Gomazoa, Gomazoa, Hover Barrier, Spectra Ward, Whispersilk Cloak, and Oblation.
That's about all I got for now. Basically, more creatures, keep Arcades safe, better cards. There are more cards that are pullable too but the ones above really should go at the very least for more creatures. Pass the message along.

Also Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa seems like a really good fit here to get in attacks.
Really like the inclusion of Mizzium Skin which seems perfect for this deck.

Really like the combo with Iname. Rune-Scarred Demon won't lose you the game because it's not a draw effect. You could add Agent of Erebos to prevent other players from benefiting from your Living Death, as well as removal like Duplicant, Phyrexian Ingester, Noxious Gearhulk, or even Profaner of the Dead. Etali and Hoarding Dragon aren't that helpful. Worldgorger Dragon is another way to flicker your permanents with Inalla, and goes infinite with Ashnod's. Fatestitcher should be helpful to untap your lands and Magus of the Coffers. You could also add Naban, Dean of Iteration as a second Panharmonicon.

You might be running too few ramp spells which is why the deck feels slow. Without infinite combo wins it's hard to play Sultai. You could try MLD-ish strategies like Natural Affinity into Massacre Wurm or Living Plane into Doomwake Giant. Maybe lock opponents out with Notion Thief and Teferi's Puzzle Box or other wheels (which are great for Muldrotha anyway). You might need to cut some of the smaller value creatures and cards for bigger, more impactful ones like Sepulchral Primordial.
Toxic Deluge and Damnation are both good. Phyrexian Scriptures is tempting as an additional Nevinyrral's that doesn't kill Muldrotha. Profaner of the Dead might be helpful as a lock. You should have a Force of Will and Pact of Negation for the Rite of Replication.
Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur makes for a great reanimation target. If you're having trouble with creatures, recurring Merciless Executioner and Fleshbag Marauder could help. This is a good chance to get in Sidisi and more ramp.

Last_Laugh I did consider those cards, but I didn't really need the pillowfort effect of Elephant Grass, and I would need to pay some amount of accumulated upkeep for Ancestral Knowledge for it to be useful unless I just exile most of the cards which would weaken a Primal Surge. Also it doesn't work well with fetches. But thanks for leaving a comment!
Flash1995 Embalm and eternalize don't work since you have to exile the original card from the graveyard. Unless you mean just casting the original creatures. I think there are more powerful ETBs to exploit apart from those. You could build it like Meren decks with sac outlets and add in some good blue cards. I think Mystic Snake, Eidolon of Blossoms, Spore Frog, Master Biomancer, Profaner of the Dead, Smothering Abomination, Path of Discovery, and Cream of the Crop could be good for what you're trying to do.

Haha I understand the struggle entirely! Personally, I'm only running a handful of non-creature-based removal, and they are less reactionary and more game ending in the form of Living Death, Cyclonic Rift, and In Garruk's Wake. I'm currently only running a single non-creature-based form of spot removal in Go for the Throat, but have found a lot of success in creature-based options like Nekrataal, his new and improved version of Ravenous Chupacabra, Shriekmaw, and Bone Shredder.
