Xathrid Necromancer Discussion

Thanks coloneldark! Thalia's Lieutenant is a great suggestion for my deck. I will have to check my local card store and see if they have it in stock. I don't know if I considered it for my original deck, but I definitely should have. Which creature should I remove to make room for Thalia's Lieutenant? Thraben Doomsayer or Xathrid Necromancer?

No Grave Pact? Also I like more on board draw like Smothering Abomination, Dark Prophecy or Grim Haruspex. Then some more token producers would help, Xathrid Necromancer, Hanweir Militia Captain, Requiem Angel. I also have been enjoying Ravos, Soultender, and High Market in a B/W weeny deck, speaking of weeny decks, Dusk / Dawn works wonders in them, this card brings back most of your stuff while getting rid of everyone's fatties. Shred Memory can become another copy of Altar of Dementia or Blood Artist so its nice as another tutor. Also Nether Traitor (which can be tutored via Shred Memory) can generate infinite mana with your commander and Phyrexian Altar.

Aetherworks Marvel and Immortal Servitude are really nice to have in shadowborn builds. I run Xathrid Necromancer too, but he does get in the way on occasion. Usually bringing 6 zombies with your demon is nice.

I have Angel of the Dire Hour, Bane of Progress, Basandra, Battle Seraph, Dawnbreak Reclaimer, Far Wanderings, Mulldrifter, Phyrexian Ingester, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Sword of Vengeance, Sunblast Angel, Ur-Golem's Eye, and Xathrid Necromancer all up for trade.

Yes, indeed...we've got to watch out for token producing stuff like that, because most of these "whenever a creature-type-x" dies/enters the battlefield have no limitation for tokens and trigger for every creature of that type. Until now it was enough to have these cards produce tokens of a different type than the one that triggers their abilities...
There's also Xathrid Necromancer which produces zombies whenever a human dies. Make everything humans and you can sac infinitely. I just hope nothing gets banned immediately when such interactions are used in modern for example.

Go for a black white human deck with Xathrid Necromancer. Would make your deck much better. And it opens more removals. =)
