Howzit AtrusOfMyst! Thanks for the comment and upvote!

Endrek Sahr is a nice token mechine but the cmc is too high, and I don't really run enough creature spells to really take advantage of him.

SynergyBuild I definitely considered it. Two problems: it costs a lot over time, and if Elenda is under it and it gets blown up, she stays in exile forever(see updated text on gatherer), which is the same reason I don't have Mimic Vat , a personal favorite.

For those interested:

I am testing out/thinking of adding the following cards: Costly Plunder , Utter End , Fumigate , Viscera Seer , Remember the Fallen , Restoration Specialist , and Scavenger Grounds . Any cuttable cards you see? Thanks for reading!

Argivian Find , Auramancer , Restoration Specialist . Auramancer and Specialist don't have to tap to recur and are good with creature reanimation/recursion such as Reveillark , Sun Titan , Phyrexian Reclamation , etc. Sun Titan can reanimate 3 CMC or less enchantments.

I don't know what kind of group you play with so I'm going to make a bunch of general sugestions.

Hopefully some of this is helpful.

Hey, very nice first draft.

Skullclamp is busted with Teysa and creatures who give you tokens when they die. Most of my suggestions are to get more out of Skullclamp. They will also help to decrease the avg. CMC which is high at 3.5. A creature who creates token when it ETB or dies combos with Altar + Deathmantle to give you unlimited die triggers and tokens.


Cards to consider cutting. All cards here are good, but some are redundant, have a high CMC or can be upgraded:

  • Orzhov Locket
  • Boreas Charger
  • Priest of Forgotten Gods
  • Mortify
  • Utter End
  • Yosei, the Morning Star
  • Butcher of Malakir
  • Harvester of Souls
  • Ogre Slumlord
  • Sifter of Skulls
  • Sadistic Hypnotist
  • Kaya's Wrath

Good luck with your deck.

Suggested card replacements!

maybe cut 2 mana rocks in addition to the earlier notes I provided.

Thought Vessel --> Loxodon Warhammer

Worn Powerstone --> Gut Shot

The warhammer gives lifelink, super! Gut shot is nice cause you can fix your life total before switching 1, point for casting or 2, or 3 points if you target yourself for free.

Suture Priest --> Wall of Shards

Same drop slot and you stop opponents being able to manipulate their own life total by playing creatures.

Fireball --> Electrodominance

One more mana, and you get to cheat out Triskaidekaphobia or Axis of Mortality at instant speed.

Ill-Gotten Inheritance --> Necrologia

Too slow, and necrologia lets you draw a bunch of cards.

Marchesa's Decree --> Blood Celebrant

Again, you don't want them to fix their own life total themselves. Blood celebrant lets you fix your own and fixes mana, so good.

Syphon Mind --> Vexing Devil

I know you like the multiplayer discard, but I think vexing devil is better in this slot.

Swords to Plowshares --> Snuff Out

This is really up to you, I like the idea of trading life for creature removal but your mileage may vary.

Akroma's Vengeance --> Return to Dust

You run way too many tech enchantments that you want to be able to get back.

Chainer's Torment --> Restoration Specialist

not worth the life you put into it. Rootborn Defenses --> Unbreakable Formation

Just a strict upgrade IMO.


Tainted Field Tainted Peak Spinerock Knoll Battlefield Forge Caves of Koilos Sulfurous Springs Mistveil Plains

cut basics? I like them because you can bring your life down, fix mana, cheat things out, and get instants back into your deck...

Wow, Ta11Man, great suggestions! I've replaced Tragic Poet with Restoration Specialist - I think the higher CMC is worth the speed and versatility. I'll be testing with my online playgroup soon. Hidden Stockpile seems like it might be worth it - I've added 1x. I'm a little less confident with it because it really only makes other spells better - that is - it's essentially a dead card without the right conditions, and with the right conditions, I'm probably already doing pretty well. I also added a couple w/b dual lands, but I do want to note that I can sacrifice Treasure tokens to create black mana if I want/need to - while not ideal, so far in playtesting, I've been able to generate plenty of tokens. Like 30+. I considered adding Revel in Riches , too, but decided that was really whole different deck, and so I threw together a separate build to explore that as a wincon. The other thing about splashing black is I'm already running very basic lands - most of the mana-base is colorless utlity. So there's not a lot of room to add another color. But I'm excited to see how it goes!!

I also considered Anointed Procession already, and included it in another build, too. I added 1x here, and am considering it as a sort of half-clone of Smothering Tithe , but also recognize it's very contingent on already have a Smothering Tithe in play - again, this is a card that doesn't do anything to help me win without conditions being met, and those conditions already offer sufficient win-ability. The only suggestion I really didn't get was Evra, Halcyon Witness . So far, I haven't been able to gain a lot of life with this deck and at 6 CMC, I think I'd probably go with an Angel that at least had flying? Maybe I'm missing something?

Also Restoration Specialist might be way better than Tragic Poet depending on who you're up against. I also think that splashing black just for cranial plating's activated ability is way worth it. You can swing 5 thopters and move the cranial plating onto an unblocked one at the last moment. If you were going to splash black, Hidden Stockpile would really help you too.
