Thrull Parasite Discussion

hoardofnotions on Budget Karl B/W lifegain EDH

anything with extort that's at least a little good. Basilica Screecher, Kingpin's Pet, Treasury Thrull, Thrull Parasite or Pontiff of Blight

Battlegrace Angel possibly not good enough

Blood Artist or Falkenrath Noble

Bloodbond Vampire for a back up karlov. this is iffy

Chant of Vitu-Ghazi, remember to block then tap for convoke.

Contemplation, combo off!

Disciple of Griselbrand, or Disciple of Bolas let you convert a big karlov to something else

Honor the Fallen - on theme graveyard hate that's also a combat trick

Mastery of the Unseen this needs a lot of mana to be great, but maybe you'll get some good use out of it. It's kinda iffy though

Patron of the Kitsune and Righteous Cause are VIP's with karlov

Resplendent Mentor this could be an all star if you go heavy white

Royal Herbalist combat tricks for karlov

Soldier of the Pantheon

Suture Priest

Vampiric Rites

Vizkopa Confessor

Wingmate Roc

Exsanguinate is good

Well of Lost Dreams and Alhammarret's Archive are nifty but expensive on the $budget$

Use all the life you gain for benefits, like card draw! Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Graveborn Muse, Night's Whisper, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Phyrexian Arena, Read the Bones, Dark Tutelage, Underworld Connections

or recursion Phyrexian Reclamation

budget cuts might include, Ajani Goldmane, Lightning Greaves (this might be Swiftfoot Boots), Angelic Chorus

Some possible cuts

Rupture Spire, Shimmering Grotto, Transguild Promenade - two color decks don't need to slow down this much for mana fixing

Sacred Cat dosen't seem strong enough for commander

Bond of Agony seems bad, maybe Exsanguinate

Orzhov Charm What mode are you adding this for?

Doom Blade could be Go for the Throat if your meta/budget allows for it

Darksteel Ingot, Orzhov Cluestone, Orzhov Keyrune could be cut for a 2 mana rock, Fellwar Stone, Mind Stone, Star Compass. Maybe one of those

Blind Hunter, Blood Tithe, Agent of Masks, Certain Death don't seem strong enough

AEther Snap, Vampire Hexmage, Hex Parasite and Thrull Parasite work nicely against walkers if you are running black.

Thrull Parasite or Hex Parasite. They help if your opponents are running troublesome fringe cards like Aurification and Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer.

First off, the deck is not standard legal, so I would click edit and then change the deck format from Standard to Modern. I would also look up Orzhov cards with extort, as they are a perfect control/lifegain deck that can be run on a budjet, with cards like Thrull Parasite or Tithe Drinker.

Of course I will berryjon! Thank you for the comment!

A Dark Ritual + is very welcome in the deck!

Smothering Abomination draws me a card for each sac, allowing me to play nonlands.

Phyrexian Reclamation abuses it when something like Blood Artist or a soul sister is on the field.

I can always use it for extort triggers off of creatures like Thrull Parasite or Pontiff of Blight.

Or straight dump it into a Debt to the Deathless effect or Return to the Ranks.

Mana burn may be dead, but that doesn't mean that you should waste mana!

Greed is a good mana sink/card draw engine, especially with all of the life you'll be accruing.

You already have Rogue's Passage so why not add Hatred? Surprise commander damage win.

Thrull Parasite is a great utility creature. Comes down early, extort is on theme, and can control PWs, etc. who your creatures might not be able to reach.

Gray Merchant of Asphodel is the best common you could put in a deck of this theme!

Gattison on Help With Thrull Tribal

In Commander, there are in fact more than two black thrulls. There's Armor Thrull (one of my favorites), Necrite & Mindstab Thrull, Blood Pet, Basal Thrull & Blood Vassal, Exhumer Thrull, Thrull Champion, Thrull Parasite, Thrull Surgeon & Thrull Wizard... and that's pretty much all the good ones in mono-black.

The best thrulls are WB, such as Mourning Thrull, Kingpin's Pet and Treasury Thrull (which kinda sucks, anyway), but then you wouldn't be able to keep Endrek as your Commander if you went .

Also, don't forget to check out cards like Breeding Pit, Ebon Praetor, Orzhov Keyrune, Sarpadian Empires, Vol. VII, Soul Exchange (awesome card), Thrull Retainer & Tourach's Gate.

I love thrulls, btw. =)
