Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker Discussion

That's fair joachimjuncher, I didn't include phyrexian altar due to its cost as funny as that sounds with the overall cost of this deck. It is in the maybeboard due to its amazing utility in the deck. As for the non-bo of the pump effects I was aware of this, thus the minimal amounts of it. They are for the most part a back-up for if Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker or the recursion is shut down or if other combos aren't working. This is an issue I should flag within the description though so I shall edit to accommodate this. Many thanks.

Sure man! I will gladly test the deck in the near future, and I'll tell you about the results. Chimney Imp + Possessed Portal + Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker is so rude and mean :D!

Hey DRye200 great suggestions, Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker and Secret Salvage are too slow and rather irrelevant for the combo, but Crypt of Agadeem is great I'll add it as a must, thanks.

Oooh, I love seeing what other people have for their Apostle decks! Here's mine.

I would recommend Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker, Secret Salvage, and Crypt of Agadeem.

Monomanamaniac on Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker reaminating question

Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker States that it brings creatures with 1 power back from the graveyard at the end of turn if he's still in play. I know for fact that / creatures have modified power and toughness as that are in any zone, but would it work on a Wight of Precinct Six? The Wight's ability seems to only apply to it when it's on the field, so is it a 1/1 in graveyard and even though it wasn't a 1/1 when it died, would it still come back

Hi! Nice deck, I see a lot of potential +1

If you're running Necropotence, then Venser's Journal and Reliquary Tower are a must. Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker also looks really good for a sub-theme within this deck.

These sac outlets are also great to exploit (and necessary if you want to keep Endrek alive) :

There are a ton of ways to utilize Endrek's ability.

@Dr_Jay, thanks for the suggestions! I'll try adding Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker into the deck and see how it works from there, especially with Rhox Faithmender and the walls too.

Nice Deck! There are a couple of suggestions I have, from experience making Shirei and Alesha decks.

For one, I would recommend Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker wholeheartedly here. Even with not all you creatures having 1 power, he is still insane, allowing you to get so much more sac value out of your smaller creatures. Rhox Faithmender is also an important piece; I wouldn't leave him out. Maybe to take use of your commander's ability, a few walls that sac for a lot of life? Wall of Shards, Wall of Omens, maybe even 0/6 lifegain wall.
