Reaper from the Abyss Discussion

Neotrup on Demonic Tribal Questions

At the beginning of your upkeep both Sheoldred, Whispering One and Abhorrent Overlord will trigger. You can put the triggers on the stack in either order, but you will have to choose a target for Sheoldred, Whispering One's ability. The target has to be a card in the graveyard already, so you will not be able to choose the creature that you are planning to sacrifice.

If you have Reaper from the Abyss and Archfiend of Depravity on the battlefield and your opponent's end step and Morbid is active, you can put both abilities on the stack in either order, but you have to choose a target for Reaper from the Abyss. If Reaper's ability resolves first, they will be short that one creature and can choose two others to keep. If you have Archfiend of Depravity's ability resolve first, they'll still have the targeted creature, but can choose it to be one of the creatures sacrificed so that the can keep to others. If on the other hand Morbid is not active by the time it goes to their end step, only Archfiend of Depravity's ability will trigger and even if a creature does die, it will be too late for Reaper from the Abyss to trigger.

Because Grave Betrayal makes the creatures Zombies in addition to their other types, they will share a type for the purposes of Coat of Arms.

Improvise allows you to tap any untapped artifact to reduce the cost of the spell, regardless of whether it has a printed tap ability or not. The tap requirement is only there to prevent multiple spells in a single turn from benefiting from your artifact count, as they do with Affinity.

Blazfemur on Demonic Tribal Questions

So im trying to make the most out of a finally finished demonic tribal, Kvlt Ov The Horned One (Demonic Tribal), just had a few questions if anyone would be generous to impart some knowledge :)

Trying to get the most out of Sheoldred, Whispering One, already included Blanket of Night, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, and Filth to not only grant her damage proper passage, but the demons in my deck as well. Adding Whip of Erebos and Cover of Darkness for added evasion and lifedraining seemed to be a given on an already flying deck.

Her resurrecting necromantic abilities, if i use Shadowborn Demon, and Abhorrent Overlord which require sacrifice, can i sacrifice them first by their own cost, then have her immediately resurrect them for their enter-the-battlefield abilities? Or would they need to be raised next turn.

Regarding Grave Betrayal (i know with her, i can steal a creature per turn by using her to force them to sac), if i have a Archfiend of Depravity, reducing their creatures to 2, followed by a Reaper from the Abyss, can they synch to reducing opponent's creatures to ONE, then theoretically steal them all with Grave Betrayal and then utilizing Coat of Arms since technically theyre black zombies? Supersized stolen black zombie boardwipe?

Finally, last question, with Herald of Anguish, with the improvise, the artifacts need a tap-ability to utilize, correct? Like i couldnt tap Herald's Horn, but Grimoire of the Dead would be acceptable, correct?

So i finally completed my demonic tribal Kvlt Ov The Horned One (Demonic Tribal), just had a few questions.

Herald of Anguish, the artifacts i tap, can i tap for example untappable artifacts like Coat of Arms or Herald's Horn? (Just getting back into mtg)

Also, with Shadowborn Demon or Abhorrent Overlord, the only creatures i utilize with self sac, can i sac them at upkeep, then Sheoldred, Whispering One immediately resurrects them for their enter the battlefield abilities, or would it have to be next turn?

Finally, (i do apologize im trying to set the logistics), regarding a Sheoldred, Whispering One, Archfiend of Depravity, Reaper from the Abyss combo, can she force opponent to sac, archfiend brings their creatures to 2, then reaper further reduces to 1 in some way? (With Grave Betrayal, im looking to steal all creatures eventually then utilize Coat of Arms to build their stats as black zombies in addition to the demonic tribal stat boost)

Mike94 on Athreos drain gain

Athreos, God of Passage is mostly focused on enter the battlefield effects that create a ton of value. Life gain could work as a utility mechanism but I wouldn't rely on Felidar Sovereign as a win-con with Atrheos. Your commander is best at grinding and taxing.

Your deck could use some sac outlets to activate Athreos's ability.

Combine the sac outlets with for example Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact to clear boards and force people to either lose life or return your threads to hand.

I would also consider some board wipes like; Damnation, Decree of Pain and Day of Judgment.

Furthermore you need some much needed mana rocks to be consistent with your game-plan.

And last of some cards that I really like within an Athreos build;

I hope there are some cards within this list that fit your build!

Reaper from the Abyss is a big awesome demon and it works as removal so I'd have to put that in
