I sac my dude, and I also make you sac yours.. mwuahahahahaha!!!
Agent of the Fates : One of the Major cards for the Theme of the deck. Makes opponent sac whenever I attach 1 of the 20 enchantments in the deck.
Hopeful Eidolon : matches the flavor of this deck flawlessly. can be used as a one drop, used to activate heroic and give some bonus lifelink, or used to fill a creature spot and also pump Ethereal Armor .
Phalanx Leader : The Oprah of the deck. Everyone can have a counter!
Blood Bairn : creates a good combat trick with it's sac a creature ability in conjunction with murder investigation. Sac all tokens after swinging in with Dying Wish attached. If they try to bounce her, just Devour Flesh or Altar's Reap her and watch the opponent's tears flow.
Erebos, God of the Dead : great for card draw. Also, if you can't get Agent of the Fates on the field, you can always Devour Flesh their ungodly huge creature. they sac it and still can't gain the life from it. muhahaha
Ethereal Armor : simple card. gets creatures bigger the more you pump it and other creatures with enchantments.
Murder Investigation : build up that heroic creature and then let him die to gain an army of 1/1s
Ordeal of Heliod : adds counters to creature, then sacs for 10 life? why the heck not?
Also, props to I_H8_U_M8 for coming up with the foundations of this deck.
Thanks for the upvotes friends!! Some notes: this deck has a tough time against early bird and control decks.
Against Esper and all the control match ups you really need to have a great opening hand to Follow enough damage, then hopefully I can get out Erebos, God of the Dead before the sphinx and things should be going ok. Lol
@StinjyJumpingJew, I looked at you deck. Thoughseize would be better than duress if you come across those :P
I don't think there will be much going on when you splash red. It will give you access to Titan's Strength , Madcap Skills , Dynacharge , and Ordeal of Purphoros .. but those seem to be more suited for more "aggro-y" decks that try to win by turn 5 or less. This deck is meant to build board presence enough to make the opponent HAVE to deal with something. and if they dont... we will just sack or guys and say GG. lol
Did you have any suggestiong or reasons you wanted to splash red?
I built a deck very similar to this one and banisher priest killed it every time. So I decided that the sac outlets (Blood Bairn , Cartel Aristocrat , etc.) didn't work for me. if red was splashed maybe take out cartel for maybe Tymaret, the Murder King ? also Hellhole Flailer came to mind seeing as he can kill himself and deal damage to the opponent. another thing that came to mind was Spark Trooper and Showstopper . with the trooper, attach a Dying Wish to it and then gain twelve life after it's killed. as for Showstopper well you're killing them any way, why not hurt the opponents creatures as well. it would work well if you got the Murder Investigation to resolve then play Showstopper and sac the tokens to Blood Bairn My alterations to the deck may be a bit radical but I can see it working.
