Xathrid Necromancer Discussion

With your curve being so low you can prob cut 1-3 lands maybe for Xathrid Necromancers

List of counter-reasons:
She can be targeted by removal.
CMC 5, 5C humans wants to be in a position to win or have already one by turn 5.
Aegis of the Gods already gives you hexproof and is a 2CMC human, though it is excluded from many competitive lists anyway.
Humans would rather have card draw than a mana sink.
The extra lands needed to cast her on a regular basis wouldn't help to cast anything in the else deck, and Aether Vial on 5 wouldn't do anything but help cast her.
What would you take out for her? Typically people side in boardwipes, not targetive removal like push, and the argument about her not having hexproof is relevant also.
I hope this answers your question. :)

I am also jumping on the JLK Deck Bandwagon and making a derivative Shadowborn Apostle EDH Deck. These are what I am currently looking for for that deck, as well as other decks I have.
I also have a Liliana of the Veil I’d be willing to put towards, or make a trade involving certain cards.
I also can look at binders for stuff I missed. A massive list of potential wants follows, but is in no way everything I want.
BOLD = Regular or Foil, but Foil greatly preferred
Main Project/Top Wants:
2x Phyrexian Altar
2x Athreos, God of Passage
Razaketh, the Foulblooded
Ob Nixilis, Unshackled
Enlightened Tutor (Original Art Preferred)
2x Cabal Stronghold
Westvale Abbey Flip
Demon of Dark Schemes
Harvester of Souls
Phyrexian Arena Original Art preferred but any will be considered
Profane Procession Flip
For other Decks:
Newly Updated Binder Not entirely everything I have, but a lot of highlights.

Xathrid Necromancer enters battlefield, we make a copy with Inalla, Archmage Ritualist, then we sacrifice our Xathrid Necromancer token with Blasting Station and pings for 1 damage and gets two zombie tokens.Finally we return the original Xathrid Necromancer to our hand with Cloudstone Curio
If Urza's Incubator is in play this entire cycle can be done for the total of 2 mana, providing 2 zombie tokens and 1 direct damage.

I would actually add the Meddling Mage s to the main board. I would take out the Xathrid Necromancer s entirely, or just put them in that hot sideboard. I like Knight of the Holy Nimbus but I don't think he is that strong, instead, I would go with something more versatile like Phantasmal Image . However, if you keep nimbus, I might addAryel, Knight of Windgrace . Ash Zealot is my home slice but you might want to consider other options, like maybe moving Kambal, Consul of Allocation to the sideboard. baird, steward of argaive seems right up your alley. Benalish Marshall , Kwende, Pride of Femeref . Damping Sphere

I really like the Doomed Dissenter/Xathrid Necromancer potential. I think that Diregraf Colossus is too powerful of a card for modern zombies to pass up and it has no synergy for your deck. I'm building a lot differently though. Maybe consider incorporating Smallpox to trigger zombie tokens?

I take it this is a take on an Aristocrats deck. If so, you've really got some things to change. Why do you have Odric, Lunarch Marshal, the two paragons, and Nantuko Husk? Instead of these, you could include more Xathrid Necromancer, Ghoulcaller Gisa, and Butcher of Malakir. You could also include cards like Ashnod's Altar, Anointed Procession, and Secure the Wastes. Cut Captain of the Watch, it's not helpful. Chainer's Edict or Fleshbag Marauder could be useful, as is Anowon, the Ruin Sage. Include 4 Butcher of Malakir and more Xathrid Necromancer. More token makers could also be useful. Gravepurge was a good choice. In your sideboard, you're only allowed to have 15 cards, and the monuments/Oketra are useless, and Champion of Stray Souls is bad. You also should improve your manabase with cards like Concealed Courtyard and Forsaken Sanctuary. If you have money for them, you could get Godless Shrine, Marsh Flats or Fetid Heath. Instead of Tragic Slip, just run something like Anguished Unmaking, Fatal Push, or Doom Blade. Also, you need a boardwipe like End Hostilities, Wrath of God, or Settle the Wreckage(best option). For token makers, use Legion's Landing Flip. Another good sac outlet is Arguel's Blood Fast Flip, if you can flip it. Your sideboard needs a little bit of hate for graveyard shenanigans, so a couple copies of Rest in Peace are in order, as well as more recursion like Ravos, Soultender.
