Thalia, Heretic Cathar does this card work in the deck

multimedia on Your Life? No - My Life.

Hey, nice budget deck. Budget cards to consider adding that can be repeatable sources of life gain or be value when you gain life are helpful especially if they trigger when your opponents play cards:

Cards to consider cutting are some that only give you a one time effect or they're not worth the mana cost:

  • Reviving Dose
  • Intervention Pact
  • Isolate
  • Sinkhole
  • Altar's Reap
  • Vizkopa Confessor
  • Seal of Cleansing
  • Consume the Meek
  • Slaughter the Strong

You mentioned switching to Kambal as Commander. I think this is a good idea; Kambal is underrated in multiplayer Commander. He effects any opponent when one them casts a noncreature spell that's powerful when you have three opponents. Even if you don't switch I would play Kambal in any Orzhov deck you make. Obzedat can be a singleton in Kambal, but I don't know if you even need him because his mana cost is difficult when playing 28 basic lands and not much color fixing such as Chromatic Lantern .

All my card suggestions can work just as well in a deck with Kambal as Commander. With Kambal as Commander you could combine life gain/budget stax/hate bears. Obviously these strategy will change your deck a lot, but it's worth testing. Budget cards to consider:

This isn't a Necropotence deck or a Death and Taxes deck.

Necropotence refers to the card itself, and decks built to abuse it, where Death and Taxes are white weenie aggro decks that have creatures that disrupt the opponents, with cards such as Dryad Militant , Mother of Runes , Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Leonin Arbiter , Thalia, Heretic Cathar , etc.

Can you remove those tags? I was looking for Necro decks and found this.

I agree with Catpocolypse. I think it's very important for the creature that you're polymorphing for is something with hexproof/shroud (so it doesn't just get removed after all that set up), Inkwell Leviathan fits well with stormtide, but stormtide is vulnerable to removal. I could recommend more but I'm not sure what your budget is because I also think that you could use better legendary creatures, like Thalia, Heretic Cathar , Baral, Chief of Compliance , Lavinia, Azorius Renegade , Kira, Great Glass-Spinner , Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip or Geist of Saint Traft are a great choice and there's plenty more good choices I can't think of. Keep working on it and The Gatherer is your best friend :)

I don't get it but here are some good possible additions Smothering Tithe , Sphere of Safety , Anguished Unmaking , Thalia, Heretic Cathar , Grand Abolisher , and Thorn of the Black Rose . Cool list though

heckproof on Pact of the Hieromancer

So if it’s the creature package that’s giving you grief out of Humans, you could try playing tax cards of your own, such as Ghostly Prison or Thalia, Heretic Cathar . That might be too far from what you’re trying to do; I don’t know. Also, Tocatli Honor Guard does shut off Champion of the Parish and friends because those abilities are triggered by creatures entering the battlefield. It doesn’t hit Mantis Rider or Meddling Mage but that’s what your removal and tax effects are there for.

I would recommend some of these stax pieces:

There are creature-based variations of these as well:

TheRoaringRegisaur on Sacrificial Humans [Dark Ascension]

I love this deck, I have a really similar [modern] deck Humans to Demons, but I focus more on amassing humans that sacrificing, however, I do include Westvale Abbey  Flip for additional sac opportunities. Xathrid Necromancer and Athreos, God of Passage make losing creatures less painful. Both Thalia, Guardian of Thraben and Thalia, Heretic Cathar prove to be great humans to have in your sideboard.

I'd appreciate it if you checked out my deck. Thank ya, and I hope you find my suggestions helpful!
