Sepulchral Primordial Discussion

I think there's plenty of removal in the deck, especially creature removal, but a lot of effects cost life to activate, and the only ways I have to gain life in the deck are like Vampiric Rites and Exsanguinate . Could probably use more lifegain? But maybe I like lifegain too much lol.

Maybe you could do an +1/+1 counters version of aristocrats with Undying and cards like Epochrasite ... basically sacrifice them into a powerful engine before the end of everyone's turn.
Mind's Dilation ... yes
Fallen Shinobi ... yes
Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge ... commander?
Mindclaw Shaman ... maybe
Mindleech Mass ... maybe
Wrexial, the Risen Deep ... yes
Extract from Darkness ... reanimator
Sepulchral Primordial ... reanimator
Silent-Blade Oni ... ninjitsu
Grenzo, Havoc Raiser ... goad is amazing
Hostage Taker ... yes
Thief of Sanity ... yes
...as well as any version of the many clones in the game...

Heh, it's been awhile. Thank you for the suggestions on my deck, sorry I promised I'd get to this and didn't get back to it sooner. Awesome build, loving the theft theme of the deck.
- Torment of Hailfire ; it feels alright to run, but I'd consider playing Exsanguinate . It does one job and does it well, and gives you a bit of insurance.
- Liliana, Dreadhorde General and Chandra, Awakened Inferno are incredibly powerful planeswalkers, and if that's what you need them for, heck, that's a good enough reason. However, they ain't really on theme; maybe Geth, Lord of the Vault instead? Same high-end cost, similar powerful presence, and really supports what you want to do. Etali, Primal Storm , Sepulchral Primordial , Diluvian Primordial , and Wrexial, the Risen Deep are all awesome big drops as well.
- Mystic Remora or Rhystic Study is a great question, however, even through Remora's sucky cumulative upkeep and not hitting creatures, it does still only drop for 1 mana.
- And my personal favorite, Herald of Leshrac . Kinda Jank, but ahh, it's so good.

Heya lifemtg, I have thought about using Mana Tithe but it just doesn't do enough for a fast combo deck. Don't get me wrong I love the card to death, in fact I built a deck here that makes use of those types of cards. I appreciate the thoughts of Sepulchral Primordial , but I play in a competitive meta and it doesn't do enough unfortunately. Thanks for the upvote though glad you liked it, it took a long time to get it where it's at!!!
I would also agree with what bushido_man96 said earlier, Abrupt Decay is universally more versatile and the "can't be countered clause" is highly relevant as I mentioned before, I play in a competitive meta. Path to Exile also gives them more ramp which is why I also am currently choosing not to play it currently, it's in the sideboard right now if I need to switch it back in if I need more removal spells, but it doesn't do enough to warrant it back into main deck for now. I am looking for more value spells at low cost that can do a multitude of things, like the new modern horizon cards. I am going to be testing out the Ranger-Captain of Eos , Force of Vigor , as well as Force of Despair for sure!

Hey I came from the Advertise your Commander deck! Your Primer is very detailed, and I love it.+1 upvote! I always like having one way of countering a spell in almost all my decks, but that’s just me. If your like me I would add Mana Tithe , it’s very helpful when someone plays a good ol Sol Ring turn one, but besides those turn one plays it’s kinda inconsistent, just wanted to ,just wanted to mention that. Since this is graveyard themed, Sepulchral Primordial is good. Even though Abrupt Decay can’t be countered I still suggest Path to Exile over it, because it’s mana cost, and also versatility, and versatility wins games.
