Sultai Emissary Discussion

If you maybe want to make the sacrificing a little more consistent and focus more on the Bloodthrone Vampire and Rite of Consumption plan, maybe include more creatures like Myr Sire that replace themselves. Cards like Doomed Dissenter, Carrier Thrall and Sultai Emissary are all fine options and allow for two sacrifices with one creature. Maybe replace the Perilous Myr and Tattered Mummy with these options, as although those creatures do hurt the opponent, committing fully to just bloodthrone-riting someone out should make it so you don't need the extra damage. Hope this helps in some way, really like the deck!

So, im looking at this from a competitive modern standpoint, and you have it listed as "casual" in the description. i think to up it to somewhat competitive, some slight adjustments could be made, all while holding the theme and mechanics in place. Some choices of cards to add, in my opinion, to make the deck a little better are:

Modern Staples(ish) that would fit right in here like Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, Abrupt Decay, Bloodghast, Viscera Seer, Dismember, Fatal Push (why SB??), Blood Artist, Elvish Visionary

other general adds to consider for rounding out purposes or spicy flavor are Blisterpod (why not 4?), Mortarpod, Tukatongue Thallid, Nest Invader, Fleshbag Marauder, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Grim Haruspex, Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip, Carrier Thrall, Evolutionary Leap, Sultai Emissary, Bloodthrone Vampire, Bloodsoaked Champion, Scrapheap Scrounger, Altar's Reap, Bone Splinters.

SUPER SWEEEEEEEET DECK! Consider Tattered Mummy, Sultai Emissary,Black Cat,Disturbing Plot,Cemetery Recruitment to smoothen out curve.

Depends on how many you are trying to play with, I'm not familiar with your play group either; however maybe cut 1 Sultai Emissary and 1 Skirsdag High Priest. I'm not entirely sure what else depending on how many copies you want to run with.

Also if you could budget it Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is amazing. He's been going down in price last I checked but that was a few weeks ago.

Hope this helps! Best of luck!

Hi! Deck looks pretty sweet overall, but I have a few suggestions:

  1. I'd cut maybe just a tad more token generation for some mainboard removal, maybe try out Disfigure or mainboard Journey to Nowhere

  2. I think there are better options than Doomed Dissenter, for instance Sultai Emissary, which is normally strictly better, ignoring Triplicate Spirits interactions. I think Doomed Traveler is quite a bit better as well.

Hi ektoe253,

Thanks for the constructive comment! I haven't played much the deck after constructing it, so it definitely needs refinement. Let me give you mostly the thoughts besides my choices:

  • Butcher Ghoul and Sultai Emissary are my sacrifice fodder. To a lesser extent that's true for Perilous Myr and Undying Evil too. So I can't agree with all your suggestions for replacements at the same time. I consider the Mortician Beetle to be the weakest card as it is very time sensitive.
  • Diabolic Edict vs other removal - I guess you have a point here. Murder, Bone Splinters or Tragic Slip should be the best as they are much more reliable ...
  • My thought of not including Chainer's Edict was that the deck is mostly aggro and I am never reaching the flashback mana. Actually this is the other reason to be running mono black over splash for other colors - to be more aggressive.

Could you give me a link to this podcast - it sounds interesting!

Marcus, I really like that deck, I am probably going to replace Sultai Emissary with Brindle Shoat because it gives you a three three, even though it is expensive.

Phyrexian Rager - Not as good as the other card draw sources. It's a one-shot effect, whereas Mentor of the Meek is an engine.

Ophiomancer - Since 3CMC is the format's limit, I like my 3-drops to either be heavy hitters or have strong supportive effects. A simple 2/2 making a single 1/1 token with deathtouch doesn't accomplish much in comparison to other creatures for the same 3 mana.

Magus of the Moon - This card kills my mana base. I have cards that require and in their costs. My two Plains and Swamps wouldn't be enough to circumvent such a downside.

Sultai Emissary - Too risky. I don't like the idea of manifesting a removal spell or one of my enchantments.

Pain Seer - I prefer the extra toughness and the ability to "turn off" the life loss over Dark Confidant.
