Rally the Ancestors Discussion

Hey, I like the deck! I tried Athreos but never had much success but I'm definitely a fan of orzhov. Here are some suggestions:

Wound Reflection really helps make Athreos a threat.

Swords to Plowshares is better than Path to Exile and Anguished Unmaking is better than both imo.

Rally the Ancestors/Wake the Dead is better than Immortal Servitude but Living Death is probably the best.

Hope these help!

Pillowfort into HB grind is an option.

I would also consider Rally the Ancestors/Return to the Ranks because they're good.

Macharius5622: Rally the Ancestors added to the Deck. Will take some time to playtest it enough. thanks

Also added little bit graveyardhate.

I think that Rally the Ancestors could be a nice touch for a late game alpha strike.

I love this commander. I finally built an allies commander deck, and it played much better than I expected. The suggestion that jumps to mind for me is Rally the Ancestors - can really be a very powerful card if you have a decent graveyard. Combine with Chasm Guide and it's gg in any late game situation.

I have been toying with a similar list. The list I have been trying is Bant and uses white for Rally the Ancestors. I also play Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip both for the loot effect, but because he can also cast Rally the Ancestors with his -3. I like the idea of Scrib Nibblers though as it can act as another psuedo-Retreat to Coralhelm which can be tossed into play off of Rally the Ancestors. Might have to add the black splash for it.

Hey there, I would just run 4 Castigate if you are wanting to use the 2 mana discard.

In the kindest terms, Transgress the Mind sucks.

Terashi's Grasp is also close to unplayable. Disenchant exists and it's instant.

They are good but not main deck, 2 in the sideboard is great though.

Mortify is not great. Anguished Unmaking Exists.

Read the Bones is not great Night's Whisper exists.

Child of Night - There are so many 2 mana cards in modern that are better.

Look to the Knights for budget stuff Knight of Meadowgrain or

Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim

Consul's Lieutenant - Double white for no benefit. Renown doesn't really work in modern.

The same 2 cards I listed above are strictly 200% better. I think they are both cheap $$.


Go Aristocrats.

Basic/Generic/Budget(ish) Build could like this

4x Concealed Courtyard

4x Isolated Chapel

8x Swamp

4x Plains

plus 2-4 other lands

4x Blood Artist

4x Zulaport Cutthroat

4x Bloodsoaked Champion / Viscera Seer

4x Lingering Souls

4x Cartel Aristocrat

2x Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim

2x Anguished Unmaking

3x Path to Exile / Fatal Push - Depending on budget.

Ummm... some sort of kill em all spells Killing Wave is my favorite.

Rally the Ancestors / Return to the Ranks

Lot of options in black and white.

Thanks Flyboarg but I am trying to keep my CMC between 2-3 so I can get things out quickly and be able to use Return to the Ranks or Rally the Ancestors.
