Rally the Ancestors Discussion

Gattison on Life Gain/Steal Black White

Hi. I just have some basic suggestions, nothing extravagant really.

firstly, if you/your playgroup is into infinite combos, Exquisite Blood is a classic combo with Sanguine Bond (which you already run).

You have a decent amount of permanents, but I still think you may have a few too many sorceries. also, you could consider Diabolic Tutor and/or Dark Petition instead of Diabolic Revelation, though you might want to stick with the multi-tutor in the end. ::shrug::

I would personally also add Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse to the land base, to help with mana-fixing and "deck-thinning."

Lastly, Timely Reinforcements appears underwhelming to me, because you have so much lifegain, it looks like you'll rarely be able to take full advantage of it. Since you'll really only be getting tokens from it, maybe Secure the Wastes or Rally the Ancestors would be better?

Another take on zubera but focusing on dumping them in the graveyard while digging for cards and using Rally the Ancestors and Viscera Seer as revive and sac mechanics. Still putting the parts together for my Zubera deck, but I like this deck's B/G take better than SaffronOlive's W/B/G.

Great synergies in your creature suite!

Aegis of the Gods (you have Hexproof on a creature), Open the Vaults (bring back all your enchantments), and Rally the Ancestors (sac your returned creatures before you begin your next upkeep) might be cool additions, as well.

Happy playing!

    1. I have a similar deck and it's a lot of fun. The only suggestion that jumps out to me is Rally the Ancestors. It's a game ender if you have Chasm Guide around. But even without haste, stacking the right etb can do a ton of hurt.

Rosvojaska on All you need are allies

Ondu Cleric seems awfully out of place in a deck with Reckless Bushwhacker. You might want to start with cutting the Clerics. Also,Beastcaller Savant is just a bad card. Consider replacing it with Noble Hierarch, maybe? And if that's out of your budget, then how about Birds of Paradise or even a Elvish Mystic/Avacyn's Pilgrim? 4 Kabira Evangel seems like an awful lot. I understand that it's a powerful effect, but 4 is a lot. Maybe cut a few of those? Munda, Ambush Leader doesn't strike me as a very powerful card. He costs a lot and his effect doesn't do a whole lot. He just basically fixes your draws, but that's pretty weak at 4 mana.

Overall. I think you are a bit too fixated on running all allies. I understand that you want the Descendants' Path to hit, but to be honest, it's not a very powerful effect in a deck full of 1-drops. Also it's not a very good draw in a situation in which you need more gas. Maybe cut some number of them?

Cards I would consider adding would be Aether Vial and maybe Path to Exile. Maybe some effect like Rally the Ancestors or Immortal Servitude could be cool too?

I dont know if you are looking for another way to bring back Apostles after using them, but Rally the Ancestors works pretty good. You are probably sac'ing them the moment you bring them back, so not worried about the exile at end of turn part.

I love seeing other Apostle decks.. its one of my most fun decks to play, but i run .

TheDuggernaught on B/W Aristocrats

I have found Rally the Ancestors to be quite potent in aristocrats decks. Being able to instant speed create blockers only to sacrifice them all can be a nice surprise that can save you turns, help you dig for a way to stabilize the board or win, or even help you win itself with the Blood Artist/Zulaport Cutthroat triggers.
