Sultai Emissary

Creature — Zombie Warrior

When Sultai Emissary dies, manifest the top card of your library. (Put that card onto the battlefield face down as a 2/2 creature. Turn it face up at any time for its mana cost if it's a creature card.)

Dig deeper into the Sultai Morph precon decklist and you can find lot of reason to buy it. The manabase alone may be one of the better manabases for a three color Commander precon. Eleven nonbasic lands ETB untapped which is by precon standards an improvement from past precon manabases.

Why are the Signet lands ( Darkwater Catacombs ) being printed as rare lands? These lands don't actually make mana without having another land/one mana first, this is not an ability that's rare. These should be uncommon since they're much worse than Filter lands ( Sunken Ruins ) which are also rare lands.

Land value in the precon (in order):

I'm happy to see Ash Barrens reprinted because it's land that should be in every Commander precon. There's 17 two drops which is an improvement for precon deck building. Kadena, Slinking Sorcerer , Scroll of Fate and Kadena's Silencer look like good cards for morph. Silencer will however not hold at $10 of value it will decrease a lot. I don't know enough about the 13 other new cards to evaluate their value in the precon.

Valuable reprints in the Sultai deck (in order):

Some notable exclusions for a morph theme:

Hi Masterful, thank you for taking a look at this deck. In the text below the deck you can see that I already got the great idea of Cruel Celebrant from your deck :) I just haven't put it into the list as of now, as they are just include cards I currently have. Also note the planned addition of Necropotence instead of Sultai Emissary .

Maybe I'll switch Falkenrath Noble with Athreos, God of Passage , giving me a similar effect with a funny politics interaction if we have an arch enemy on the table.

As for Liliana, Dreadhorde General I'm not so sure she will be able to stay on the board long enough to be relevant in my meta.

Bolas's Citadel I find really interesting. A bit similar to Ad Nauseam . Maybe I'll find a replacement for Requiem Angel with lower CMC and I'll put this one in and try it out.

Rustytrusty I will update the primer. My previous list was way too midrange, so I cut down on it in order to improve my aristocrats/burn packages. Begrudgingly, I had to add back some Sultai Emissary s, which I then took out for lazotep reaver as soon as it was spoiled.

Ok, to start off, this deck is phenomenal! It has great synergy and potential. There are a few cards however, that I personally think don't have a place here. For starters, Black Market is a good card, but by the time you get it onto the field, you already have enough mana for literally every single card in your deck, assuming that you have 2 green mana which Black Market can't help with anyway. A good replacement would be Palace Siege. It costs the exact same amount, plus it is still another enchantment. You can choose to add onto Zulaports' ability, or grab an extra Blisterpod every turn. Both would be better than excess mana. The only other card I would replace would have to be Oath of Nissa. It sort of seems out of place to me, and I don't really have any "replacement" suggestions per say, but I can recommend something else. Sultai Emissary is a great card for a deck like this, basically doing the same thing as a Blisperpod. If you do add that you might want to consider readjusting your mana spread to more black. Again, this deck is great, but I think a few minor changes will really tie it together.

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.
