Throne of the God-Pharaoh Discussion

Love the list, if you want to see the Mardu treatment of this it really runs parallel with my Forgotten Legends deck. Two suggestions, any deck that can run Krosan Verge should, and you are running enough land type lands to make it instantly fix everything. Second I also looked at Throne of the God-Pharaoh , cause it does everything you want it to, but found Angel's Trumpet to be more chaos inducing cause everyone starts swinging... And by all means if you want to pay me back with a suggestion let me know :)

1: You don't have to pay that cost to cast the card, but you do have to pay the cost to activate the ability.

2: Exiling the card from your graveyard is a cost, similar to tapping the creature or paying . If you tap the creature it won't be able to attack, if you spend the mana you won't be able to use it for something else. Similarly exiling the card from your graveyard will generally enact a toll for you. The advantage of doing so is to get the effect (the part that comes after the colon): Creating a 2/2 black zombie and putting +1/+1 counters on all your zombies, including the one you just made. At it's worst it's paying 3 mana, tapping a creature, and getting rid of a card in your graveyard to make a 3/3.

As for what could possibly be an advantage to paying the cost: Tapping the creature can be helpful for cards like Throne of the God-Pharaoh and not being forced to block a creature with Lure . Similarly exiling a card from your graveyard can make it no longer a valid target for Surgical Extraction or an opponent's Beacon of Unrest .

If you control 3 Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist s you would draw 3 cards, but as the ability only allows you to draw 1 card, regardless of how many opponents lost life, or how much life they lost, the situation you described has you only drawing one card. Also, Throne of the God-Pharaoh has opponents lose life, it does not cause damage. As Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist only looks at life loss, it works in this scenario, but the distinction may be relevant for other interactions.

Sorry, you're right let me give a little more context. It's a 4 player commander game, no players have taken damage this turn. I have one tapped creature, Throne of the God-Pharaoh and Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist . As I proceeded to my end step would the damage from Throne of the God-Pharaoh cause me to draw three cards?

You would only draw one card at most. There's nothing in your description of the situation that would cause you to draw 3 cards from Ludevic's triggered ability.

At the beginning of your end step, both Throne of the God-Pharaoh and Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist trigger. Since you control both of the triggers trying to go onto the stack at the same time, you get to decide the order. In order to get your card, you would put Ludevic's trigger on the bottom and the Throne trigger on top. The Throne trigger will resolve first, making each opponent lose 1 life. Then Ludevic's trigger will resolve and make you draw a card. With the way Ludevic's trigger is written, it only gives one card each time. The number of cards isn't based on how many opponents lost life or how much life they lost.

Assuming there is only one tapped creature on my board and I have a Throne of the God-Pharaoh and Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist out, do I still draw three cards?

No problem! I'm glad to help. Edgar Markov is one of my favorite commanders!

Just a short list of cards that I find really do work in my list. Even better they are all three mana or less!

A good card to consider might be Throne of the God-Pharaoh also if you against a bridge deck having Ghirapur AEther Grid in the sideboard gives you a way to win, if you are able to go more colors Nature's Claim in the sideboard does double duty with it being life gain against burn and maybe fizzling their Searing Blaze and it's good against harden scales, hollow one though that's on a decline and whir prison
