Soldevi Adnate Discussion

Hi MediSyntax, you make some great points - and some less great points. Though I think that Plaguecrafter is a strict upgrade from Fleshbag Marauder in 99% of cases, I'm lead to believe that in this one instance - it's less effective. Solely due to the fact that one can still cast Gravecrawler while it's in play. I'd probably include it, but there aren't many flex-slots - not even a Merciless Executioner or Innocent Blood that fill the same role.
Running Liliana, Untouched By Death is strong - especially with the rest of the build. Being able to sacrifice and recast other 1-drops as alternative combo pieces is awesome - 10/10 suggestion.
I also want to mention Pitiless Plunderer as it's a mana more than Pawn of Ulamog - but makes coloured mana when any of your creatures die - which means that it's a recurrable creature version of Phyrexian Altar as long as you have carrion feeder or something out (also it blocks Tymna).
Doom Whisperer is cool - but given you need to sit at a cozy 20 life for Razaketh, the Foulblooded it's a tough squeeze - though I might place it over Void Winnower since digging through the top 20 is much more pro-active than locking out some cards (worth testing - maybe board for sure).
Mausoleum Secrets could be cool with some testing - I'm building a version similar to this atm. My best question is what would you cut in order to include this (sometimes functioning) tutor? The main gripe is that with Rest in Peace or Leyline of the Void in play - the card is turned off.
Furthermore, an interesting include that came to me is Thornbite Staff - with Soldevi Adnate (and with Priest of Forgotten Gods) and Gravecrawler - you have another copy of Phyrexian Altar. Granted it requires more mana and setup than Phyrexian Altar, but if you don't want to use paradox engine to achieve the same effect with sacrificing and replaying Gravecrawler, then this is the next best thing.

You should add all mana-generating creatures. Why not? It faster Shirei and then more mana each turn.

Abnormal Endurance, Shade's Form, Supernatural Stamina, Unhallowed Pact and Undying Evil would all save you mana getting your commander back in play. You might also consider Basilica Screecher and Syndicate Enforcer since you need life gain. Soldevi Adnate could be a good mana and sac source.
Also, there are many different combos you can play in PDH, Ghostly Flicker combos just have the most consistency and least number of pieces.

@DiggleMcGee, thank you for the suggestions. I did add a Thornbite Staff to the mix. Its just too good. I do like Soldevi Adnate, and he would pair nicely with my Priest of Yawgmoth as another mana-dork/synergy option.
I do like Haunted Cloak, and Marionette Master has been under consideration for some time. Do you have suggestions on what I should cut to make some of these additions? I'm very interested in your suggestions. Thanks for taking a look.

How do you feel about something like Soldevi Adnate? Its not exactly an early drop but you can get free artifact creatures with a Mycosynth Golem. I noticed you have a longbow how about getting a second support equip like Thornbite Staff or Scythe of the Wretched. A Haunted Cloak gives you access to a bunch of really nice keywords that lets glissa use the death touch trample combo and easily swing and defend the turn she comes out. Finally, Marionette Master can be a very powerful win con. If you put all the counters on her you can do 4 damage to all opponents on every artifact death which gets out of control very fast

Thanks for the response.
One last suggestion, bit of my personal super-spicy-super-secret tech for you in Soldevi Adnate, it is half a joke, but a pet card for sure~

I hope you have the classics Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar. Then there are Wild-Field Scarecrow, Ruthless Knave, the bros Priest of Yawgmoth and Soldevi Adnate, Corpse Harvester if you have cool zombies. If you have some ways to sacrifice artifacts there's also things like Pentad Prism and Sphere of the Suns.
