This deck is so cool.

Would Silence be a good card to include? It can shut off a player when you go to combo.

I also think Dark Ritual and Cabal Ritual would be good includes. They would allow you to win the same turn you get 6 Shadowborn Apostles in play as long as you have untapped and Teysa in play. Because then you tutor Razaketh, use the 6 tokens to tutor Edgewalker, Dark Ritual, Cabal Ritual, Songs of the Damned, Secret Salvage, and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Use the B mana to cast your rituals, making 11 black mana. Then you have enough mana to cast Edgewalker, Secret Salvage, and activate Nykthos. Then of course tutor up Gary and Exsanguinate to win.

But being able to win the same turn you get 6 Apostles seems good.

DrukenReaps on Atogatog vs Shadowborn Apostle

So I'd been working on an Atogatog deck, The Flung King when I got side tracked by rat colony but then decided Shadowborn Apostle is cooler causing me to throw Karona's Shadowy Apostasy together.

My problem is that these are very similar decks so I'm only going to build one and I can't make up my mind... the shadowborn deck needs a lot more work but I did just make it.

So let me know what you guys think about them, thanks.

Format legality is whether or not you can use a card in said format, not however many copies you can use. Each card with an "any number of copies" ability can override highlander formats; take for example the Shadowborn Apostle competitive Commander decks.

SirFowler on H: Binder W: Shadowborn Apostles

Hey everybody. I'm putting an EDH deck together that requires a lot Shadowborn Apostles, about 30, give or take. Unfortunately, I don't have any money to spend atm, so I only have what's in my binder. Just take a look and get back to me. Thanks.

The_Pilot2 on Shadowborn Demons EDH

What's Your Inner Demons?. Mine is not knowing how a Shadowborn Apostle EDH is supposed to function. I through this together out of thin air because my play group was doing Ravnica guild battles and my other decks were all taken so I through together this Orzhov deck. It worked well sometimes but it fell short others and my W-L record was an even 5-5. If anyone could suggest things to bump that up to 7-3 or 8-2 that would be great. I dont mind over budget cards but keep them under $25.

Thanks yall!


LordMithos on how many copys of lands ...

1 month ago

Exactly one. Unless its a basic land or something that explicitly says you can have more than one copy ie. Shadowborn Apostle or Relentless Rats you are only allowed one copy of a card in a deck.

I say we need Bloodbond March and 20 Shadowborn Apostle. In addition, some Dark Petition or Razaketh's Rite seems important. Also, Dread Return.

The Shadowborn Apostle version is not at all competitive. I wouldn't recommend it outside of a kitchen table environment. The deck I linked can win on Turn 2 at instant speed - it won't happen often, but it is possible. You should expect to threaten to win on Turn 4 or so if left relatively unimpeded.
