Soulflayer

Creature — Demon

Delve (Each card you exile from your graveyard while casting this spell pays for .)

If a creature card with flying was exiled with Soulflayer's delve ability, Soulflayer has flying. The same is true for first strike, double strike, deathtouch, haste, hexproof, indestructible, lifelink, reach, trample, and vigilance.

Hey there! Thanks for the vote, I'm interested in working more on this deck.

A transformative SB is actually a fantastic idea that I wouldn't mind exploring... Interesting.

I don't like Stitcher's Supplier in this deck; swapping for Bomat Courier is more my style. Courier can kill itself, gives Haste to Soulflayer if in the yard, and is still useful in the mid game whereas Supplier simply isn't. Once you have a flayer, Supplier just doesn't do much. Bomat lets you select when you want to put cards into the yard, which I like. Bomat also gives another card type for Traverse the Ulvenwald.

I think a different build could perhaps maximize Supplier, but as of now, it isn't the build that tickles my fancy the most.

Sarkhan420,

  1. You are correct, you did not use the dies to doomblade argument. You said "something with no haste that can be killed with Path to Exile or Terminate" - so my apologies, you did not use doomblade.

  2. Yes, indeed. 0 mana does not mean no cost, despite what you think. 2 Hollow One on t1 for zero mana does imply the card is free, except you have to get lucky to do it.

  3. Saying I should play more modern and that Bridge is a bad card, while ignoring what BridgeVine has done to the metagame in the last month is not a good idea.

  4. Phantasmagorian was mentioned because it is a part of the Legacy deck Oops, all spells, which I mentioned. Unfortunately, in conjuction to Phantasmagorian (which is also played in certain legacy dredge variants), the deck has to play Dread Return, but that is impossible in modern. I mentioned that because Demon At Death's Gate is the closest thing to Dread Return that is legal in Modern.

Back to the OG topic, I would agree, demons and eldrazi do not have much to do with each other. There are some that could be useful - Soulflayer could get a nice array of abilities, Shadowborn Demon will take out something and be huge, all at the cost of some eldrazi tokens, while Desecration Demon is the purest form of aggro demon. But I cannot find a single demon that really plays well with the eldrazi.

Turn one: Fetch Land, Faithless Looting, discarding Zetalpa and Bomat Courier. Turn two: Play Soulflayer, exiling all 4 cards in your graveyard, swing with a a 4/4 haste, flying, double strike, trample, Indestructible, Vigilance.

That’s disgusting bro lmao +1 from me

I dont know any that steal them from the grave other than what you mentioned but Odric, Lunarch Marshal does something similar.

As for things with a lot of keywords Chromanticore, Drogskol Reaver, and Zetalpa, Primal Dawn are usually in Soulflayer decks.

Yesterday on Looking for cards which share/steal ...

Hey folks. As usual, I'd appreciate some help because I suck at using card searches.

I'm looking for cards like Cairn Wanderer, Death-Mask Duplicant, Soulflayer. Ones that steal or share keyword abilities from other creature cards.

A different question but on a related note, I'm also not sure how to look up 'keyword soup' creatures which basically have a lot of keywords printed on them, other than looking up each combination of keywords individually and finding which creatures share them and as many others as possible, which would take approximately forever.

I hate basically asking people to look stuff up for me but I'm really not sure which terms I'm meant to use to find such cards.

Thanks in advance.

HashMasta on Exalted Deck W/B

just as an idea, you could try using exalted with something like Soulflayer with filling up graveyard with ability creatures such as Drogskol Reaver, Zetalpa, Primal Dawn, Gurmag Swiftwing, Sphinx of the Steel Wind, Akroma, Angel of Wrath and stuff like that.

mix in doublestrike, lifelink, haste, hexproof, bla bla with exalted and you got a pretty tough creature to deal with.

I would try and use things like Zombie Infestation to fill up graveyard and keep a good board state for when needed.

some other key things I think this needs is probably a Victim of Night instead of your murder. just cause not many popular creatures are those types. or you could use Go for the Throat. also since you run orzhov, Vindicate and Anguished Unmaking are gonna be great cause they target all permanents except unmaking targets nonland sad sad

as your lands go, would always go for dual lands when 2-color and above. Caves of Koilos, Scoured Barrens, Orzhov Guildgate are your more budget ones. Marsh Flats and Godless Shrine do have a bit of a price on them but its cause they are good. however if you do not wanna spend that kinda money stick with the budget ones. will do just fine.

if you do try the whole Soulflayer discard idea, would also try and get a Lingering Souls for some back up defense and cards like it.

would also go for some hand disruption spells. even a simple Duress would do in a meta like this (though not my first recomendation) Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek are the best right now and would get those when have the chance.

I know it is a lot, but just some ideas to try and help. Happy brewing! :)

Soulflayer is probably one of my favorite recent card. Props for building a fun deck around it +1
