Thrull Parasite Discussion

shaftdiggity on Athreos Deck (plz halp)

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.

Absolutely love the concept of your deck! Maybe Thrull Parasite to get a damage in for casting Rakdos?

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

Have you considered Underworld Dreams, Vampire Cutthroat, and Thrull Parasite?
