Sower of Discord

Creature — Demon


As Sower of Discord enters the battlefield, choose two players.

Whenever damage is dealt to one of the chosen players, the other chosen player also loses that much life.

All seem like decent adds:

I'd cut Sun Titan for sure. Can only get 8 targets, not counting signets, and of those, only a few have actual real value in being reccured.

Memorial to Glory - A useful utility land that can late-game produce some soldiers.

Militia Bugler - Some pretty solid card selection that puts a soldier out on the board, and there is a decent amount of targets.

Dawn of Hope - Can draw you cards with some of the life gain synergies as well as be a soldier creating mana sink.

Benalish Marshal - An anthem on a stick.

Endless Atlas - Card draw in white.

Divine Visitation - Now all of your Darien tokens are 4/4 angels!


Doublecast - Much weaker than other copy spells as it cannot copy opposing spells, but if you are looking for more copy spells.

Jaya's Immolating Inferno - Another big burn spell, maybe cut Fireball?

Fury Storm - Another copy spell, can be better than others. Up to preference.

Endless Atlas - Card draw in red.


Sower of Discord - Doubles up all of the group slug.

Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor - Encourages opponents to attack each other.

Truefire Captain - Another Boros Reckoner.


Endless Atlas - Card draw in white.

I don't have much for Ulrich or Skullbriar.

I would probably reconsider Sower of Discord. If there are only two players left, you'll have to choose yourself!

I also made a similar deck Athreos, God of the Shadowborn Check it out!

Sweet Deck! Have you thought about Sower of Discord as another saskia type effect?

Vile-Wesker, nice deck I like the Revel in Riches in here, have it win you a game before ? Overall, how's your deck perform and what is your meta ? I would love to play cards like Bitter Feud,Sower of Discord,Avatar of Slaughter, but it always end up being a situation where suddenly I have two opponents and the third one just stay there as a spectator and laught seeing the ennemy smash me... hahaha. Does that situation happened to you once ?

Do you fell like sometimes you need more than 2 boardwipes or if creature just massively dies to combat ? And is there a lot of target removal in your games ? Cause I love to Golgari Charm my creatures from nowhere or even if it's from another deck that needs a little bit protection, Heroic Intervention all my permanent in play in response to mass boardwipes. At least it save me from one of the many everyone play. Heroic Intervention is a little higer than 5, but is an amazing response to keep for the late game when you are one turn away from winning. The other card is just nice flexibility for response to terrible enchantment, wipe plants token of whatever token my enemy have and mostly, protect my dudes. Good work and thank for the suggestion the card is already in the deck !!

Sweet changes that already won me a 3-player game!

More discard (anti-control) with Oppression, which works so well in this deck because you're spells have powerful effects, so the cost of discarding a card is payable (relative to the effect). For example, under Oppression, you can cast an Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre and discard a card, but a green player just can't ramp through it. Who's going to play Rampant Growth to fetch a basic land and discard a card? So this card doesn't hurt you much but destroys other decks. Some decks, such as graveyard decks, can actually benefit from it, so obviously you should decide if it's a good idea to cast it.

On another note, this deck needs to play a fast game and finish players off, and Maga, Traitor to Mortals is a fantastic finisher. I just cast a Maga for 11 life loss last night to win a game. Sower of Discord has a higher ceiling, of course, but takes more turns, and turns isn't something you want to give up in this deck.

One more thought about Sower of Discord... note that it mirrors damage done to player A as life loss to player B. So one situation that would be sweet to set up just isn't possible with Sower: mirror your own life loss from draw spells and other downward spiral effects to another player. Bummer. But should they make that card in the future, it would be ridiculous in this deck. And if they already made that card, please let me know!
