Remorseful Cleric

Creature — Spirit Cleric


Sacrifice Remorseful Cleric: Exile all cards from target player's graveyard.

Remorseful Cleric Discussion

multimedia on Teysa Karlov Sac them all

2 months ago

Hey, this is a good start, but I think you can expand on the idea of "sac them all" :)

If price is a concern then consider cutting Teferi's Protection ? It can clear a lot of price for more card interactions. Protection is a good card, but it's not worth $50 for a single card, taking up a third of the budget...

Budget cards ($1-$2 or less each) to consider adding:

If you like some of these suggestions I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

You could run Fall of the Thran , and then exile your opponent's graveyards with cards like Remorseful Cleric , Leyline of the Void or Phyrexian Scriptures .

I have a friend that runs a budget-y version of spirits, and let me tell you Remand is super important to his strategy. However, he is not running a Tallowisp package either which eats up some slots...

A good budget card for this strategy is Ojutai's Command . It's pretty flexible and says draw a card and can work as an ALTERNATIVE to Cryptic Command if you want to. I don't know that that's necessary either though.

As for some sideboard options, graveyard hate should be a number one priority right now with dredge and Arclight Phoenix being silly. Rest in Peace is probably the best card for your list, however, Relic of Progenitus and Tormod's Crypt would also work (Relic > Tormod's). A great creature for this list in the sideboard is Remorseful Cleric as it can serve as a creature or as graveyard hate, so maybe consider this as well.

Some counter magic in the side is also great, namely Negate to beat up on any and all non creature spells as well as Spell Snare to just stop 2-drops ( Snapcaster Mage , Manamorphose and any of storms Rituals or Dorks to name a few). Other great options against storm (and storm type decks, looking at you Phoenix type of decks) can be Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Render Silent and even Silence to stall out a turn.

For your sideboard right now, I'd for sure recommend putting in...

2x Relic of Progenitus

2x Remorseful Cleric

2x Spell Snare

1x Negate

and then removing...

2x Spell Pierce

2x Mana Leak

1x Lavinia, Azorius Renegade

2x Nebelgast Herald

You have a good mix of creatures, each providing different utility. I would suggest Master of Cruelties is one to add, as being able to instakill someone on a whim is extremely useful (and a real power play against control/ stax decks)

Reconnaissance is a must have for attacking decks running white. Attack then untap all your creatures in post attack step.

I see you're running a fair few sac effects, so why not throw in Reveillark , Karmic Guide and Blood Artist for a backup plan combo win? Or go with Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , Murderous Redcap and a sac outlet for infinite damage (and infinite mana with Phyrexian Altar , not that you need it.

Finally, throw in some tasty utility creatures such as Selfless Spirit , Remorseful Cleric , Noosegraf Mob , Drana, Liberator of Malakir and Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice

Hey, River of Sacrifice is a great deck name, nice one. Do you have the cards in the maybeboard? There's several very good cards there (Demonic, Reanimate, Will, Vindicate, Koilos, Confluence, Heath, Godless, Dreams) if you have them put them into the main deck :)

I agree with bradtheimpaler13, Razaketh, the Foulblooded is the upgrade to consider, he's good enough to build around. Ways to get him into your graveyard and reanimate him help to get him onto the battlefield faster.

Other cards to consider adding, most are to strengthen the aristocrat theme:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Forsaken Sanctuary
  • Orzhov Guildgate
  • Vivid Marsh
  • Orzhov Basilica
  • Barrier of Bones
  • Bloodmist Infiltrator
  • Carrier Thrall
  • Dread Shade
  • Gutterbones
  • Knight of the Last Breath
  • Martyred Rusalka
  • Priest of Forgotten Gods
  • Pitiless Pontiff
  • Scholar of Athreos
  • Resolute Watchdog
  • Twilight Panther
  • Necromantic Selection
  • Murder
  • Disenchant
  • Tragic Slip
  • Revival / Revenge
  • Macabre Waltz
  • Bankrupt in Blood
  • Sorin, Grim Nemesis

Good luck with your deck.

Might I suggest the classic Fall of the Thran + Remorseful Cleric combo over the Haphazard Bombardment + Tragic Poet one?

Hey, this is a good start, but there's several budget cards that can upgrades here. First, here's three budget lands to consider: Command Tower , Caves of Koilos and Tainted Field .

Budget upgrades to consider:

Can add all these upgrades for about $14. Most of these cards do something when other creatures die which triggers Teysa. Repeatable abilties and effects are very good in Commander.

Nonbudget cards to consider adding:

If you like some these suggestions I offer more help.

Good luck with your deck.

Deadpoo111 on Fall of the Cleric [Fall of the Thran Standard]

Vman, I've cut the taplands. I agree with your assessment and after a quick test, I found the build worked. Thanks for the suggestion!

CaptDan, I agree with cutting Wayward Swordtooth . What other Dinosaur would you put in? (not Carnage Tyrant though because I can't spend 20 bucks on a card) Also, I've found that I don't really need more than three Remorseful Cleric because I can always just sacrifice a Thrashing Brontodon to destroy Fall of the Thran . I love Sumala Woodshaper because it ramps and gets my enchantments too! What would you cut for it?
