Sifter of Skulls Discussion

I just remembered Sifter of Skulls too, probably as a one of in here. Basically your Thralls would produce 2 Scions instead of one, but your Neonate would also make a Scion as well as the Familiar, Abominations, and even the Cutthroats themselves. If you did go with the Flayer Drone, I'd also put in a Sifter. I think you have enough draw to find one.
Anyway, good luck :)

I would say replacing Phyrexian Gargantua for Puppeteer Clique. Gargantua Isn't bad, but its a bit costly for what it does, though admittedly you can recur it for free with Meren. Another possible thing to replace is Mockery of Nature, as you only get its trigger if you cast it, so recursion with Meren wont do the trick, though to be fair it does let you sac something and get it out cheaper, and it would take a while to get to 9 counters so you would mostly be adding it to the hand. Damn, its hard finding cuts here, all the stuff is good. As for Sifter of Skulls Vs. Awakening Zone, I guess its more of a meta decision, the people I play with tend to pack more creature hate, so Zone being an enchantment makes it harder to kill. Also depending on your meta, you could ditch Vampire Hexmage unless someone is running a +1/+1 strat or Superfriends I've found it to be underwhelming. And for me personally, I'm not fond of Butcher of Malakir, 7 drop for a creature that is more expensive and much easier to kill than a Grave Pact or Dictate, though it can be brought back easier.

Cmasa435, I have Replaced Evolutionary Leap for Birthing Pod, Morbid Curiosity for Dictate of Erebos, and Sangromancer for Gray Merchant of Asphodel. As for the other cards you've suggested: I like Yahenni, Undying Partisan over Carrion Feeder, Sifter of Skulls is my Awakening Zone on legs, Spawnwrithe doesn't fit so well, & I like Puppeteer Clique & Hope of Ghirapur, but have no clue what I'd take out for those.

I want to +1 so much but I can't stand Mike/Trike/redcap combo. Also, I can't +1 a Sek'kuar deck that doesn't have all the mini-Sek'kuars like Ogre Slumlord, Pawn of Ulamog, and Sifter of Skulls or Din of the Fireherd, the most perfect card for Sek'kuar ever!

So, the premier of Skithiryx in a one on one game didn't shape up so well. Went 0-2 against Sidisi, Brood Tyrant focusing on zombie token production. The deck needs more mass removal, so Ugin, the Spirit Dragon will be replaced by Black Sun's Zenith. Sifter of Skulls, Emrakul, the Promised End, and Mirrorworks will be benched for black mana ramps Crypt Ghast, Nirkana Revenant, and Caged Sun.

Yeah, my meta likes taking my turns. And they don't run Bojuka bog. And they can't exile your stuff with Bojuka Bog because it comes back at end step. So they wouldn't have a chance to use it. Also, you can still sacrifice them on your opponents turn. I just prefer to be able to get that extra value on my turn. Especially with cards like Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Pawn of Ulamog and Sifter of Skulls So I drain them more and I get more Eldrazi Scions.
Personal Preference though.

Great looking deck, I'd love to play it +1!
All these ideas came from a similar deck of mine...
