Thrull Parasite Discussion

Crypt Ghast, Pontiff of Blight, and Thrull Parasite all have extort, and seem good.

I would remove either Thrull Parasite or Treasury Thrull, as they have bad synergy with Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, and I'd replace them with a copy of Oketra's Monument, as it creates more dudes to sacrifice.

22 lands seems a bit lite if you have 4's of Phyrexian Obliterator and Gray Merchant of Asphodel. I would add an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and another swamp. Thrull Parasite and Deathgreeter seem week. I would add some amount of Collective Brutality (all modes are relevant against burn).

One thing to consider is that Athreos' ability doesn't do anything with tokens. It looks like you're going a stax route with tokens, which is fine, but they don't necessarily synergize with your commander. I would suggest Grave Pact and Black Market along with some self-sacrifice like Viscera Seer and Fleshbag Marauder. Another route you could consider is focusing on life by playing low cost non threatening creatures, and having a ton of extort effects like Blind Obedience and Thrull Parasite and just recast all your stuff repeatedly with extort to paper cut your opponents to death. I have a cleric based athreos that does this listed under my decks that I love.

On the "what is better graveyard hate": I know that Tormod's Crypt is cheaper in terms of mana, but replacing itself is a big deal with both Nihil Spellbomb and Relic of Progenitus.

So far, though, your decks have suffered a littel bit from taxing their own mana. Thrull Parasites extort costs mana, Will-o'-the-Wisps regeneration costs mana... One or two things requiring a bit of mana is ok, but it runs up pretty fast, and going gets hard for decks with only 20 lands.

Apart from that, Blood Scrivener and Asylum Visitor only really works if you can reliably empty your hand. When you have mana you need to keep open, you play your cards slower, and therefore find it harder to trigger these 2 not-quite-bobs.

No problem nicochulo. I'd also recomend, if nihil spellbomb is too slow for you, another reasonable option is Tormod's Crypt. It is a lot better if you find yourself needing no interuptions with your mana. It doesn't replace itself on use but it's zero mana to play and use! also unless if Thrull Parasite has a specific use in your deck, I'd recommend putting in another creature. maybe an Asylum Visitor or a Blood Scrivener?

The value is definatley there with Thrull Parasite, I like the idea of it, and being a one-drop, it can help speed things up a little. I'm taking out Spiteflame Witch, she was soaking up too much of my colored mana to get done what I needed. Thanks for the suggestion Mike94, I really appreciate it.
