Smothering Tithe Discussion

Your deck inspired me to make a version of my own! I saw the Secret Lair alt art coming out and just had to make a deck around it.

Here's some suggestions I have:

Kindred Discovery - Staple in tribal decks that'll draw you plenty.

Phyrexian Arena - Good draw, life is a resource.

Vanquisher's Banner - A lord for your tribe and a draw on summon.

Mystic Remora and Smothering Tithe - Having these and Rhystic Study in the deck just feels good.

Toxic Deluge - Best boardwipe in the game. Your commander already destroys permanents but this gets around indestructible. Neat huh?

Blasphemous Act - Another boardwipe that gets around indestructible. Since your build is more so token oriented, you shouldn't have a problem resolving this for the low.

Patriarch's Bidding - Bring back your tribe and then some! You can call any creature type, so why not bring back some of your other tribal support too? Ex: Calling slivers would bring back your changelings and the sliver lords.

I think trying out an Eldrazi Tribal deck with a Vorthos sub-theme of "Eldrazi touched" creatures may be both flavorful, and potentially powerful enough to be considered "scary" by the table. Some deck defining spells would be:

Just to name a few. I'd rely on a lot of the various ramp cards ad that produce , and mono white ramp for support (like Smothering Tithe ). I'd also consider maybe an additional subtheme of monowhite stacks, using cards to slow the flow of play like Authority of the Consuls , Ghostly Prison , and Blind Obedience . The idea is to make other players second guess attacking you, while you continually drop in Eldritch Horrors that disrupt the boardstate in a big way. I know you're on a budget, but the previously mentioned are probably the most expensive cards i'd suggest.

you mean the actual Flicker ? it's sorcery speed, so it doesn't really work defensively or as occasional disruption. that's a deal breaker for me. it does, however, untap cradle, or reset walkers, or kill marath, hehe. regarding final fortune, I used to play it and only removed it to test Smothering Tithe , which I've been pretty unhappy with. i'm fairly certain that smothering tithe does not belong here and will probably bring back Final Fortune . i've been testing Sevinne's Reclamation as well and I've been pretty impressed with it. I didn't realize it can get land back, too, and it's basically a 3 for 1.

@Conaxi4783 - Hmm.. i didn't remember Revel in Riches .. although, it's not as reliable, as i would like.. but, i'm going to include it in the maybeboard.. might do a couple of playtests with it.. with Smothering Tithe , i had it in a previous iteration of this deck, but i chose to cut it because my playgroup has a couple of house rules, that puts a bounty on certain cards that we feel are annoying to play against.. Smothering Tithe , Rhystic Study , Sol Ring , Gaea's Cradle , Sensei's Divining Top & Lion's Eye Diamond are those cards currently.. whenever one player destroys/exiles any of those, they would get a point in our league per month.. although Sol Ring is still in my deck, it's not as eye catching to remove from the battlefield, unlike those others, so I had to cut it.. Thanks for the suggestions btw.

@hamdeadly - that could be useful, although my deck has a couple of enchantments that i would not rather destroy, and would prefer single/multiple targeted removal spells like Return to Dust .. maybe as a last resort.. but i will keep that mass removal spell in mind, if ever i would update this deck.. thanks!

@Jobiji - that's a viable strategy! let's see if i can replace one of my creatures for Vhati il-Dal .. thanks!

Revel in Riches is another possible win condition you could have and Smothering Tithe is a good ramp for white. They both also can help each other in creating more tokens.

so the way I see it you're actually quite close (33 basic lands means 25 basic lands brings you up to 82)

Sooooo creatures

  • Zephyr Sprite (basic 1 drop flyer, but a 1 drop flyer is good on its own)
  • Wydwen, the Biting Gale (3/3 flyer with an ability that gives you bounce to save itself or add faerie casts)
  • Wasp Lancer (3 mana faerie flyer, that's it)
  • Vendilion Clique (ok, pricey but a good way to say no to an incoming problem)
  • Thieving Sprite (another way to say no to an incoming threat)
  • Silkbind Faerie (untap effects are very exploitable, although often rare)
  • Silkbind Faerie (easy to be a 3/3 flying vigilance for 3)
  • Ringskipper (this one is kinda mostly filler but could be obnoxious to get rid of)
  • Quickling (ok I think this is a diamond in the rough, 2 mana, get a body AND save a faerie from impending doom)
  • Oona's Gatewarden (i know defender BUT WITHER IS SUCH A GOOD MECHANIC)
  • Nightveil Sprite (2 mana 1/2 flyer that lets you look at the top card of your library, with the option to toss)
  • Mistbind Clique (forcing your opponent into an all out play can create quite the opening, timing it before the end of a phase limits their options on what they can do with all that mana)
  • Metropolis Sprite (With anthems that ability could be nasty, especially since early game flyers are often going unblocked)
  • Knacksaw Clique (I hate myself for suggesting this monster of a card but even if you aren't stealing their cards, your permanently removing them and that's just nasty)
  • Faerie Vandal (drawing 2 cards in a turn isnt hard in blue, so in many cases it will get +1/+1 every turn)
  • Faerie Mechanist (counts as an artifact AND sifts for more)
  • Fae of Wishes (that adventure lets you pull solutions out of thin air)
  • Eye Collector (1/1 with a decent ability)
  • Brazen Borrower (again not budget but another great adventure)
  • Faerie Guidemother (1 drop white with an ok adventure option)
  • Phyrexian Metamorph (clone that can hit artifacts always good, especially in EDH)

My sanity is lasping soooooo…. Also might want to think of artifact / enchantment recovery cards and good ol’ Elixir of Immortality

Hey, see your Topic and want make some suggestions.

Life-Loss Combo with your Exquisite Blood - Combopieces: Defiant Bloodlord or Sanguine Bond .

I think here is no Question ;).

Second Combo: Exile with Aminatou, the Fateshifter the Felidar Guardian and with Felidar Guardian infinite Aminatou, the Fateshifter Corpse Knight will deal infinite Dmg.

Rhystic Study is a must have for every Blue Deck, Brainstorm & Ponder also for Topdeck-Control. Smothering Tithe give you more Ramp/Mana if your Opponent dident pay. A Land Tax is so awesome, take 3 Basics out the Deck every Turn, and your Chance to Draw Combopieces is better. (Also if you must Discard Basic-Lands (Handsize).

Here is my old Vapire Deck, its more Casual but maybe you find more Ideas for your own Deck. [PreCon] Legion of Dusk - Orzhov Vampire Tribal

Have Fun. Greez Vimozahr

Commit / Memory is a great cancel or removal spell stapled to a wheel. I recommend it in any deck that can house blue, it's kind of a pet staple.

Approach of the Second Sun is a good alternate win con. It doesn't really further any strategy with Brudiclad, but it can end a stalemate which can be nice.

Smothering Tithe can produce treasures which can be used as mana, and can be turned into dudes with Brudiclad, or you can turn your other tokens into treasures. It's neat.

... Also, please do me a fave and burp that guy back up. We need him in 2020.
