Sepulchral Primordial Discussion

Bloodghast, Braids, Cabal Minion, Hell's Caretaker, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Nether Traitor, Sadistic Hypnotist, Mind Slash, Blasting Station, Corpse Dance, Curse of the Cabal, Smokestack, Mimic Vat, Massacre Wurm, Sepulchral Primordial, Black Sun's Zenith, Insidious Dreams, Necromancy, Dance of the Dead, Attrition, Do or Die, Dread Return, Blood Artist, Words of Waste, Hypnotic Specter, Ill-Gotten Gains, Megrim, Mindslicer, Memory Jar are all options you could consider.

Memory Jar with Waste Not on the field is particularly dirty if you have your many doublers out and can drop your new hand onto the field. Bloodghast gives you a creature you don't even have to pay for to get back. Ill-Gotten Gains lets you run a second Dark Deal essentially. Megrim makes all the discarding you're doing kill them.

elgosu1337 on Kresh the BUFFbraided *NEEDS HELP*

Hey, one way to make this deck faster and more efficient is to increase the amount of ramp. Since Kresh is green, you have lots of sorceries that ramp. I highly recommend Farseek, Nature's Lore, Rampant Growth, and Search for Tomorrow. Sakura-Tribe Elder also adds a +1/+1 counter to Kresh if you draw it later. From Beyond and Sifter of Skulls should generate lots of scions which also grow Kresh when you sacrifice them for mana. The deck basically needs Kresh to be in play, so you need lots of ramp to get him out early. Jet Medallion and Bontu's Monument are not that good because they don't help for a lot of your spells.

Apprentice Necromancer, Disciple of Griselbrand, and Ogre Marauder don't seem very efficient. Ashling, the Extinguisher needs to hit a player for its effect, which can be hard. Savra sort of forces you to play mostly black creatures which can be restrictive. I feel like you don't really need Costly Plunder. Smothering Abomination is great for repeated card draw in this deck, as is Harvester of Souls. Rishkar's Expertise will also draw you lots of cards once Kresh is big.

You could also replace some of your removal spells with creatures that act as removal. Impetuous Devils can kill most creatures while growing Kresh by +6/+6. Avatar of Woe should end up quite cheap to cast in this deck. Gruul Ragebeast makes your big creatures fight their creatures, and even if your stuff dies Kresh grows bigger. Ryusei, the Falling Star is amazing as a boardwipe once Kresh is at least 6/6. Last Laugh works really well with Kresh since he will grow bigger when creatures die and be the only one surviving, but be careful of dying along with the other players.

Champion of Stray Souls and Journey to Eternity  Flip are great for bringing creatures back. You can also try Whip of Erebos since the lifesteal is valuable when you're attacking with big creatures. Sepulchral Primordial is great to steal your opponents' dead creatures. Molten Primordial lets you steal the living ones so you can attack and then sacrifice them.

Rite of the Raging Storm grows Kresh by 5/5 on each players turn. Kalonian Hydra seems nice to double the counters from Kresh and Mazirek. You could also consider Pathbreaker Ibex to pump all your other creatures to the size of Kresh. Brawn is good to sacrifice for trample. I feel like Mage Slayer will be overkill most of the time.

You can check out my Kresh deck for more inspiration.

It's a pity that the Food Chain combo doesn't work without any additional pieces for extra land drops or recursion.

Great call on the Birthing Pod, it was exactly what I needed. Perhaps one more 7-drop could be helpful, like Protean Hulk or Sepulchral Primordial?

I agree that Deepglow Skate is weak most of the time, but it's still helpful with the planeswalkers especially after a Primal Surge. And it does make a useful Birthing Pod target. I might replace it with Teferi, Temporal Archmage and The Chain Veil.

Conquering Manticore, Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker, Feast on the Fallen, All Is Dust, Obliterate, Obelisk of Grixis, Darksteel Ingot, Nevinyrral's Disk, Sepulchral Primordial, Stingmoggie, Panharmonicon, Drakestown Forgotten, Dominus of Fealty, and Olivia Voldaren are what I'd suggest for cuts.

One addition I forgot to recommend though... Mikaeus, the Unhallowed. You have flayer of the hatebound already, so you should know how gross undying is here.

Thanks so much you guys, especially WalkingIllusion, but also elgosu1337.

Walking illusion, you are the guy who finally convinced me that maybe etb triggers instead of just plain cruelty would be a good plan. I'm not doing dredge because a lot of my best stuff is enchantments and I have limited ways of getting those back. I have disregarded a lot of your thoughts, but know that there are also many I heeded.

Elgosu, I would totally run Mikaeus if he weren't TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS!!. Like holy crap man. This deck, though it wasn't the initial intent, came out super budget and I'm rolling with it. Sepulchral Primordial was in the build but got cut because seven mana. That's not prohibitive, but it's pretty close.

I like the rattlesnake concept of deathtouch in this deck. A very notable absentee is Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, which lets your stuff come back one more time while also destroying any humans that deal damage to you. I'm also a big fan of Sepulchral Primordial to reanimate what you've killed. World Shaper is really good to put creatures into your graveyard and also ramp.

This deck inspired me to make an Eldrazi ninjutsu deck as well.

My takeaway from playtesting are, if you want to focus on emerge, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Cauldron of Souls let you do it for free, especially with other persist or undying creatures like Glen Elendra Archmage, while cards like Noosegraf Mob, Priest of the Blood Rite, Body Snatcher, Keiga, the Tide Star, and Kokusho, the Evening Star benefit from being killed.

Shapeshifters like Phantasmal Image or copying like Mimic Vat give a massive discount to emerge while still benefiting from ETBs.

Stealing and reanimating your opponents' creatures is really powerful, using effects such as Blatant Thievery, Sepulchral Primordial, and Reins of Power.
