Skirsdag Cultist Discussion

landofMordor on Kresh the Sacrificer

Hey friend! Love the deck. Kresh is one of my favorites -- I've got a build and primer myself @ Blood-Braided Beatdown (Primer); go check it out! I took mine in a slightly different direction than you did, making Fling and friends my primary win conditions, but you might still be able to find some new cards in there.

As for directions your build could grow, I think you could make a lot of incremental improvements with individual cards. Stuff like Seed Guardian, for example, currently serve as your "flex spots" you can cut for edits if needed (I'd put Vile Redeemer over it, probably). Also cut cards that don't scale to EDH well, like Bolt and Make Obsolete, in favor of Earthquake and Fall of the Titans or something. Random suggestions are Dying Wish and Feed the Pack.

In general, I'd recommend increasing your creature density as much as possible -- put in Chaos Maw or Skirsdag Cultist for Devour in Flames, for instance, since Devour won't put counters on Kresh when it dies. Put in "fight"ing creatures instead of damage-based removal. And so forth. And then solidify a win condition: is it Soulblast? Overwhelming Stampede? Surestrike Trident? plain Voltron? and so forth.

Hope this helps! Hit me up if I can clarify or assist! Kresh is near and dear to my heart and I love the start you've gotten with this build.

mad_hatter_md01, are you offering to make a donation? (;

Top four changes would be Bloodspore Thrinax, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, and Reyhan, Last of the Abzan. Those are the ones that would really oil the gears in this deck. They'd probably go in for things like Vein Drinker and Varolz, the Scar-Striped, Curse of Stalked Prey, Skirsdag Cultist, and so forth.

Past that, it's really up to you. Doubling Season, Meren of Clan Nel Toth, Atarka's Command, Damnation, Sarkhan Vol...just whatever floats your boat. They wouldn't be in my ideal deck, necessarily, but you can certainly find ways to spend money on a counters-and-tokens-and-reanimation build.

Hope that helps answer your question. Let me know if I can clarify. Cheers!

It's not the best ability wise but for flavor reasons you should include a couple cultists.

Blood Cultist literally has them drinking and that flavor text...

Other potential cultists: Death Cultist, Deathcult Rogue, Exultant Cultist, Kill-Suit Cultist, and Skirsdag Cultist

As for cards that synergize with nekusar, have you considered Fevered Visions? Seems like the sort of card you'd want.

Seeing as how you have multiple wheel effects, there is some consideration to Megrim and Liliana's Caress

Wheel and Deal is a pretty good wheel effect and if you really need to you can have it only target yourself.

What are your thoughts on adding something like a single Barrage of Expendables or Skirsdag Cultist as a sacrifice outlet?

So we got a good beginning to my wife's God of the forge deck. Check it out, rate it, see what you all think. Open to most changes, however Mindcrank Skirsdag Cultist Culling Dais Rage Thrower and a few others aren't getting removed as they compliment each other very well with tokens and purphoros. Try constantly getting hit by burn and mill at the same time, it sucks.

Thanks all for your suggestions, but for future reference, could you post them on the deck itself, so I could easier add them to the deck? Thank you. iAzire, I would love to add your suggestions, but they are really expensive. I can't really go passed 70$, even 60$ is a stretch, so Blood Moon is out. I've taken consideration into most of those artifacts, but again, pricey, and I'm not sure what to replace for those.

dbpunk, I'll try to weasle in a spot for Chancellor of the Forge, it actually fits perfectly. Descent of Dragons is good for swarm, I understand, but if they're dragons, they're not goblins, so Krenko couldn't breed them like rabbits anymore. As for Skirsdag Cultist, I just removed her place to make more room for even more goblins. Can never get enough goblins, you know.

joemick, I added all but the Goblin Assassin and Thornbite Staff. I just don't like the assassin, and there's better cards in place of the staff.

I run a Mardu token deck, which uses lots of Goblin tokens.Chancellor of the Forge and Descent of Dragons both work perfectly in those. Also, Skirsdag Cultist can be switched out for Magmaw, and some of the lesser strength goblins can be switched out for better synergy among goblins.

You could use a sac outlet like Skirsdag Cultist (it's meh, but flavorful and on my mind) or Goblin Bombardment. If you use one that requires no mana to activate you'll occasionally go Infinite with sac outlet, Redcap, and Mikey.
