Tithe Drinker Discussion

Nip Gwyllion combos extremely well with Edge of the Divinity . Mine isn't a Pauper build, but I run both of those in my B/W Vampire deck and I've found his strength to match quite well with my uncommon/rare options. He's a great turn 1 drop.

Mourning Thrull is another good common option to consider that I run along with Edge.

Tithe Drinker could be another good choice, as his ability is significantly cheaper and more useful than Acolyte of Xathrid . Seems like a pretty decent Pauper build tho all in all - kudos! +1

Out: Gild --> willst nix exilen sondern in den Graveyard packen, Springleaf Drum --> zu langsam und du willst nix tappen, Ghostly Prison --> geschmackssache muss nicht sein hast genug gute Kreaturen zum blocken, Death Grasp --> besser wäre hier Debt to the Deathless bring lieber alle um als nur einen, Bontu the Glorified muss hart drum herum gebaut werden besser wäre der neue bontu God-Eternal Bontu , Overseer of the Damned --> zu langsamer removal und zombies kommen tapped rein meh, Pontiff of Blight --> Extort brauchst du nicht bzw. das ganze gibt es billiger in Tithe Drinker .

In: Anguished Unmaking + Utter End + Despark + Swords to Plowshares --> typisches Removal Package in Orzhov, Selfless Spirit --> sehr gut weil protection von wipes, Golgari Thug --> kann rein füllt graveyard, Enlightened Tutor --> wenn du ihn hast perfekt findet Skullclamp, Living Death --> hervorragender Boardwipe für dich, Viscera Seer --> immer gut zum saccen, Pawn of Ulamog --> sac futter und ramp,

Rest hast du schon drin.

You could consider some of those cheaper Vampires, as you want to cast Suckers as soon as the game starts to trigger Edgar's Eminence ability.

Some that are not mentioned earlier: Blood Artist Tithe Drinker (Extort!)

Mana fixing duals like Painlands ( Battlefield Forge ) or Temples ( Temple of Malice ). Shocklands ( Blood Crypt ) are good too but already a little more expensive.

Also some ramp would be great: Sol Ring Chromatic Lantern Fellwar Stone Signets

Instant/Sorcery: Utter End Anguished Unmaking Vindicate Boros Charm Merciless Eviction Teferi's Protection (Is included in the C17 Edgar Markov deck, so you may have one. Cheaper alternatives: Ghostway or Eerie Interlude . But as these exile and return and not phase your stuff out like Teferi's Protection , you'll lose your tokens with these. And no, none of those will trigger Edgar when theys return, as they are not cast.)

Artifact: Skullclamp

Thanks WestNileWerewolf, I appreciate it! I used to run Sun Titan and Phyrexian Reclamation in an older version of this deck that was more mid-range and creature-based, but kind of left them out when I went and revamped the strategy to this version. I haven't thought about adding more recursion in a while, but Sun Titan could certainly be useful in grabbing some of my better enchantments back too. It's something I should consider.

I feel that Gisela, the Broken Blade is probably the card I'd consider switching out the most, because Brisela, Voice of Nightmares never happens and it doesn't provide much other utility other than being a 4/3 life linker.

As for looking for ways to get Licia out early, Martyr of Sands is a great way to get her out early, because you only need 2 white cards in hand to gain 6 life. She also scales the more white cards you have in hand. If you're having a lot of problems with keeping Licia on the board and need more tools to get her out more consistently, maybe try including Words of Worship . You trade off drawing cards if you use it, but it's a consistent, repeatable burst of life. You could also try Glory-Bound Initiate . I used to run Tithe Drinker in that older deck of mine as well, I think it's worth a slot if you're running other extort stuff.

Licia is dear to me as well, and you've got an interesting list. It's great to see a few cards that I feel I've discovered for Licia that I don't see in very many lists like Children of Korlis, Acatian Moneychanger, Tainted Sigil, Augur Il-Vec.

I realize he's not really a creative card, but Sun Titan would be able to get back these pieces for you. I also like Phyrexian Reclamation for this purpose.

Sunbeam Spellbomb is a nice way to get Licia out early, or draw a card in a pinch. Also recurrable with Sun Titan. I've been looking around myself for more cards that will get Licia out early, I think Tithe Drinker is worth a slot, I feel I underestimated the value of Extort in a multiplayer setting. Having said that, I only run one other extort card which is Blind Obedience , but you're usually gaining 3 life off an Extort which is very nice.

Only other recommendations I would make would be more haste enablers for Licia. Like the list.

They pretty much nailed it with their inclusions. My Edgar deck has a little extort built in as a subtheme. Cards like Pontiff of Blight , Tithe Drinker , Blind Obedience , Crypt Ghast , Work well. I also included a Debt to the Deathless And that can just win you the game if you have the Mana.

Blood-Cursed Knight Drana's Emissary Tithe Drinker Could allow some real nice combos or maybe just a basic Vizkopa Vampire could cut some cost and allow more aggro/life link.
