Purgatory Discussion

triproberts12 on Elenda, Dusk Rose. Orzhov Vampires.

3 weeks ago

Props for not going easy mode with Edgar Markov .

As for suggestions, the best thing I think you could do to improve this deck is to make it more explosive. The way to do that would be to add free sacrifice outlets, along with creatures that provide you multiple bodies.

For bodies, I would add Hallowed Spiritkeeper , Lightning Coils , Belfry Spirit , Promise of Bunrei , Teysa, Orzhov Scion , Sorin, Lord of Innistrad , Sorin, Solemn Visitor , and Pawn of Ulamog .

For sac outlets, Viscera Seer , Indulgent Aristocrat , Bloodthrone Vampire , Bloodflow Connoisseur , Cartel Aristocrat , Blood Bairn , Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter , Vampire Aristocrat , and Yahenni, Undying Partisan are good vampire options. Sadistic Hypnotist , Dimir House Guard , Spawning Pit , Hidden Stockpile , Mind Slash are also good. What's important is that you can go off all at once. You want to sac a bunch of creatures to grow Elenda and sac her the same turn.

The other challenge you'll want to keep in mind is that Elenda, the Dusk Rose must go to your graveyard to get the trigger. That means If you want to recast her, you'll have to reanimate her or exile her from your graveyard. Bojuka Bog , Relic of Progenitus , Angel of Finality , God-Pharaoh's Gift (and Gate to the Afterlife !), Skeletal Scrying , Rescue from the Underworld , Necromancer's Covenant , Cremate , Seance , Planar Void , Goryo's Vengeance , Postmortem Lunge , Purgatory . Despoiler of Souls , Mistmoon Griffin , Purify the Grave , Offalsnout , Coffin Purge , Drudge Spell , Cryptwailing , Treacherous Vampire , and Consecrate / Consume , Angelic Renewal , Karmic Guide , Reveillark (the prior two being an infinite loop combo), Dread Return , Nim Deathmantle (there are combos with it and Ashnod's Altar , which you also want), Palace Siege , Bloodline Necromancer , Profane Command , Unburial Rites , Faith's Reward , Ever After , Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants , Hell's Caretaker . Apprentice Necromancer , Wake the Dead , Second Sunrise , Infernal Offering , Corpse Dance , Zombify , Resurrection , No Rest for the Wicked , and Footsteps of the Goryo , are all good options.

The final piece of the puzzle is making your sacrifices devastating. Dictate of Erebos , Butcher of Malakir , Grave Pact , Black Market , Harvester of Souls , Midnight Reaper , Grim Haruspex , Zulaport Cutthroat , Open the Graves , Blade of the Bloodchief , Ogre Slumlord , Athreos, God of Passage , and Dark Prophecy will help with that.

Teysa Karlov could also be very good in this deck with all the death triggers. Nothing wrong with good old value creatures like Solemn Simulacrum , either.

You could also use a few tribal things like Kindred Dominance , Konda's Banner , Cover of Darkness , Vampire Nocturnus , Vanquisher's Banner , Path of Ancestry , and Metallic Mimic .

MagicalHacker on MagicalHacker - List of All Recursion Cards

9 months ago

Magicaids, Purgatory doesn't help you recur cards, it only helps you not need recursion after you get it down. That's why it isn't good enough for the list, if that makes sense.

eljeffe_demagico, there are plenty of cards that will let you get a creature from your graveyard onto the battlefield for less than 5 mana, and even in mono white, there are a few.

griffstick, while Mortuary Mire is good in the same sense that a Disentomb is, Mortuary doesn't help you recur cards, it only helps you not need recursion after you get it down. That's why it isn't good enough for the list, if that makes sense.

Lord_Khaine, glad I could help!

Suns_Champion on Hymn of Darkness: Elenda EDH | *PRIMER*

1 year ago

Holy shit that maybeboard! :D

Some thoughts:

Immediate +1 for Elspeth ;)

I'm glad you already know about Hatred. That would have been my first suggestion.

Cathars' Crusade will useful. Make 10 tokens from Elenda and they all get 10 +1/+1 counters. Just pure value.

Well of Lost Dreams. Lifegain seems to be a secondary theme here, but having this around to draw some extra cards will always be good.

Eldrazi Monument. Just a nice way to buff all your tokens.

Edict effects go hand in hand with sac outlet decks. Dictate of Erebos, Grave Pact.

Mentor of the Meek. Again, more card draw.

Sigil of the New Dawn. Return Elenda to your hand immediately.

I'm considering making an Elenda build. One avenue I was thinking was graveyard hate. Really unconventionl strategy here but maybe it'll work. Planar Void, Purgatory(could choose the 2 life over 2 mana. Good deal), Mortuary, Cremate(also draws you a card), Withered Wretch, Thraben Heretic could all be useful. Just some thoughts.

Hope some of this helps! I'll keep following this with interest.

I just finished making my deck list for my Karador deck Purgatory and I wanted to see how it looked against other spirit decks.

GoldenDiggle on How Good is Daxos the ...

2 years ago

I enjoy Daxos, he doesn't win often, but he is fun to play if you enjoy enchantments.

As a color, Green is better at enchantress type decks because of cards like Verduran Enchantress, Enchantress's Presence, and Eidolon of Blossoms, which allow you to replenish your hand.

White has a few cards like Mesa Enchantress, Greater Auramancy, and Sigil of the Empty Throne, that create advantages as well.

For the most part, black enchantments (in my experience) provide the card advantage that was missing in the green cards with enchantments like Phyrexian Arena, Underworld Connections, and Necropotence.

Orzhov in general bring some interesting enchantments to the table, such as Necromancer's Covenant, Soul Link, and Debtors' Knell. (Honorable mention to Gift of Orzhova, Purgatory, and Athreos, God of Passage, but not really for this deck.)

If you want, you can check out my deck. How Enchanting!. It needs a few cards, and currently those slots are being filled by the precon deck.

DeathChant17 on Teysa, built from suggestions only

2 years ago

Oblivion Ring and Banishing Light. Maybe Revoke Existence?

There is also the obvious mana rocks, Swiftfoot Boots + Lightning Greaves (if you aren't swinging teysa you may want more options to protect her aside from the enchantments I suggested earlier), and the preferred land base.

Whip of Erebos makes sure all your creatures have lifelink. If you noticed the Alternative Wincons of Felidar Sovereign and Test of Endurance. Also Odric, Lunarch Marshal does the same, and more.

The 3 Sorins are Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, Sorin, Solemn Visitor, and Sorin, Grim Nemesis. Liliana I included simply for her tutor ability.

Sorin Markov gets the honorable mention for his

Phyrexian Reclamation will get you reusable grave return.

Debtors' Knell and Purgatory offer other grave recurrence options too.

Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares can be extremely valuable.
