Skulltap Discussion

SynergyBuild on Athreos, and His Apostles

3 months ago

Hey, I will show you some lists that are considered competitive, like:

Food Chain Tazri

i hate all of you

Grixis Twin

Chain Veil Teferi

Walking Ball | Thrasios Ballista

Tana and Tymna Blood Pod - Primer

Melt Banana

Ad Nauseam Doomsday Zur


The above lists are all tier 1 lists, made by incredibly talented deckbuilders.

If you want this list to truely stand, up the ramp and card draw.


Examples of good ramp on no budget are like the following:

These cards can give incredible speed to a deck, and I am sure you can understand why. The below cards are still competitive, plenty run in addition to the above cards:


Onto card draw, with out a budget:

The above a powerful card draw, you can get a gold-bordered Scroll Rack copy for a lot cheaper. Below similarly will be budget varients, that still see competitive play:

This does look like fun!

I'd second the suggestion for more card draw. Maybe test with synergistic cards that include a destroy/sac or graveyard manipulation cost like Altar's Reap, Costly Plunder, Dredge, Gravepurge, Merciless Resolve, Parting Thoughts, Ragamuffyn, Recover, Skulltap, Urborg Uprising, or Vampiric Rites. Erebos, God of the Dead, or Underworld Connections might help here, too.

A Soldevi Adnate might be handy for a tiny bit of ramp if you ever get stuck without enough apostles, and an Ashnod's Altar would be an excellent source of punishing ramp if you're stuck at 5 or fewer apostles.

Happy brewing!

Not sure how often you're sacing a land, perhaps Skulltap over Merciless Resolve?

Currently working on my own PEDH deck with Cliffhaven Vampire as the commander and I've been using your deck among others for inspiration =]

If you have any tips or recommendations that'd be greatly appreciated.

I think you've recognized the dilution of the deck as for what to do with it is up to you. There are some interesting synergies in it already but my favorite is the dynamic between; Vengeful Dead, Carrion Feeder and Soulless One. Noxious Ghoul looks interesting to go in your sideboard but is too late game to be in the main deck. as for thematic and functional sorceries I'd say keep Unearth, Stir the Grave (for returning Zombies) and Skulltap. Ghoul's Feast looks like it'll be great for a cheeky fatal swing too. If you focus on a playset of each of the above you've got an interesting mechanic that would be great fun to play and even lose against.

further recommendations would be; Butcher Ghoul, Dregscape Zombie, Geralf's Messenger, Relentless Dead, Cryptbreaker and of course Diregraf Colossus

word to the wise though; don't just go for the money cards

I was gonna say Altar's Reap but you already have Skulltap.

I dig this deck, you can't go wrong with mono black! Bone Splinters is a lovely card.

I think that it goes without saying that you need Braids, Cabal Minion in here. Forget about the rules!

To Braid it up some more, you can put in Skulltap for sac and draw or Blackmail, though it may not fit as well.

Ghastly Demise could work and you get a quote from Braids.

Besides the loose alt-Braid referenced flavor, you may want to give Kresh his sword Mage Slayer

Read the Bones and Sign in Blood come to mind. Could also use something like Skulltap, Altar's Reap or Merciless Resolve if you don't mind the sacrificing costs.
