Slaughter Pact Discussion

WillySmasher on Gisa's Ghoulfriends

Hard to say since there's a lot of synergy in your deck and honestly it depends on your meta, Stromgald Crusader seems pretty mana intensive for what he does. Metallic Mimic and Adaptive Automaton interrupt the zombie recurrence theme going on, cards like Diregraf Colossus don't benefit them being in the graveyard.

Blood Scrivener is a debatable one, while at low CMC and added card draw it depends how often you have 0 cards in hand, other than that I couldn't tell you what creatures to cut.

This is where your meta comes into play, personally I would cut most target removal, in a 4 player free for all if you 1-for-1 with an opponent your other 2 opponents are now up a card(however can save you from infinite combos and such) so it's a tough call to make. That being said I would cut Tragic Slip since you can't control morbid on other peoples turns and maybe Slaughter Pact depending on how often you verse other black decks.

Sign in Blood is another card I would consider cutting and replacing with a more repeatable draw engine like Necropotence or Dark Prophecy or at least replace with Read the Bones.

Other than that I couldn't recommend anything else to cut your deck seems solid to me.

Edit: here are some other cards I found that go well with your decks synergy:

Cryptbreaker card draw

Call to the Grave control

Dictate of Erebos control

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip If you add any lily planeswalkers be careful not to run too many since you can't have more than one in the battlefield at a time.

Potential yet high CMC sweepers

Decree of Pain

Plague Wind

Hellfire

In Garruk's Wake

Life's Finale

In place of Mutilate I would run Damnation but it's much more expensive.

You definitely do have some main-deck game against it with Worship - however all of your fog style effects are going to do stone nothing. They do have some pretty good sideboard tech against you with Echoing Truth and Slaughter Pact - so Eidolon of Rhetoric would only buy you time in a boarded game, same with Leyline of Sanctity.

Burrenton Forge-Tender would save you from a Lightning Storm however, if an ad naus resolved, they could just deal with the tender first, then cast it - since you don't have any way to cheat in a creature at instant speed ala Chord of Calling or anything to that effect your best bet would be to just have a board state with a variety of creatures and stick a worship.

Addrum on artifact bullshittery (marchesa edition)

Hey man! Sure, I'd love to help. Not sure how on budget are you, and since you have some pretty darn expensive cards I'll make sugestions based on that. If it just happens that you had the cards from before and don't have too much to spend, just tell me and I'll give another options.

Well, I'd start by adding more lands. Always play Between 35 and 40 lands in your deck, unless it's an mono G elf deck that can go lower, or a deck that want lots of lands like Tasigur, Gitrog Monster or Omnath RG. Steam Vents, Watery Grave, Blood Crypt, Badlands, Underground Sea, Volcanic Island. Fetchlands would be perfect Polluted Delta, Bloodstained Mire, Scalding Tarn, Misty Rainforest, Marsh Flats. Check lands, Filter lands and Painlands. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, High Market, Academy Ruins and Tolaria West as utility. Prioritice on lands that come into play untapped.

I usually don't consider cards like Phyrexian Altar or Cathodion as a ramp because it's not going to ramp you over the curve. I consider them as combo piece or sac outlet. That being said, add more ramp like the signets, Mana Vault, Mox Diamond and Chrome Mox for fast mana. Expedition Map would be awesome to grab that beautiful Mishra's Workshop.

As for the combos, the first thing is Nim Deathmantle and Ashnod's Altar. Those two can go infinite with TONS of cards, like your Wurmcoil Engine: Sac wurmcoil to add 2 mana, triggers on the mantle and the wurm dying. Put the tokens onto the battlefield, then sac one of them for 2 mana (now you have 4 mana in your mana pool). Use the mana to reanimate Wurmcoil with the mantle. Repeat again for infinite tokens (with deathtouch?), and since you have infinite tokens, you also have infinite colorless mana. This works with any creature that enters or leaves the battlefield with two or more tokens. It also works for infinite mana with your Cathodion. These combos with your Disciple of the Vault win immediately, although I prefer Blood Artist because he helps you to stop other players that wants to go infinite sacrificing creatures. Krark-Clan Ironworks is also a good sac outlet that gives you mana.

Triskelion goes always side by side with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed. Remove one counter to ping for 1 to your opp. Remove the other two to shoot Triskelion itself. It dies with no counters in it so Mikaeus brings it back now with 4 counters. Hit your opponent for 2, then hit Triskellion for 2, repeat for the win.

Palinchron + Deadeye Navigator is a good generic combo for infinite mana. Grand Architect + Pili-Pala is another good option, and the Architect also works as a ramp card.

This style of sacing artifact deck will find Junk Diver very useful. The full package includes also Myr Retriever, Scrap Trawler and Workshop Assistant.

A combo deck loves to have tutors to win fast. Keep in the Forgemaster and the Transmute, and add Tezzeret the Seeker , Demonic Tutor, Fabricate, Whir of Invention, Arcum Dagsson, and the mages pack Trinket Mage, Trophy Mage and Treasure Mage.

For the controling part, this deck needs more actual control and removal. Damnation, Toxic Deluge, Blasphemous Act, Vandalblast, Counterspell, Counterflux, Force of Will, Pact of Negation, Slaughter Pact.

Lastly, you can go deeper in the artifact theme including cards like Mycosynth Lattice, Unwinding Clock, Clock of Omens. Thats when things go crazy.

As for what to take out, there are a lot of cards I see there that don't do much for the strategy but this is up to you. My suggestions on what to take out would be: Golem Artisan, Hellkite Igniter, Hellkite Tyrant, March of the Machines (unless you put the Mycosynth Lattice to land lock your opponents xD), Breaker of Armies, Conqueror's Flail, Silent Arbiter, Library of Leng, Genesis Chamber, Gravepurge, Moltensteel Dragon, Clone Shell, Bearer of the Heavens, Burn from Within.

Man, that was a wall of text xD tell me if you have any questions.

Why Bitterblossom over Shrieking Affliction? Seems counterintuitive to the deck's goal. Dismember instead of Slaughter Pact

Ok first of all, you absolutely need more ramp. I know this is sort of a casual deck, but edh has some fierce competitions to get to the most mana first. Budget speaking, Sol Ring, Darksteel Ingot, Rakdos Keyrune, Dimir Keyrune, Izzet Keyrune, Izzet Cluestone, Rakdos Cluestone and Dimir Cluestone allow you to ramp up without having to take too much out of your wallet.You are also a bit light on removal, for which I would advise Doom Blade, Victim of Night, Rapid Hybridization, Pongify and Malicious Affliction. The most effective removal spells in your colors are Terminate and Slaughter Pact, but again, budget. Artifacts could be a mild problem, for which Smelt, Vandalblast and Rakdos Charm should keep you ok. Lastly, you need cantrips in this deck. The best ones you have in the colors are relatively cheap (ancestral visions aside). Gitaxian Probe, Brainstorm, Ponder, Serum Visions, Preordain, Thought Scour, Peek and Fleeting Distraction are all great cards for blue decks in general.Cheers!
