Sacrifice Deck


rawrmander Score: 2


This is a sacrifice deck, meant to deal damage by killing my own creeps and at the same time have some control over my opponent to limit their moves.

This is running standard (Post RtR).

Needs more consistency in the form of 4-ofs, in my opinion. I like where the deck is going, though, and I'll give it a plus one.

My cousin runs a deck very similar to this, he uses Killing Wave to wipe his board when he has Blood Artist out or Diregraf Captain in your case. If you had them both out and a bunch of zombies that could be game right there.

What do you mean ajacobik? I'm still new to magic, just made this with whatever cards I had, any 'must buys'?

Thanks jminute14, board wipes are definitely something I'm missing, would really help against those pesky spirit tokens/ mass creatures in general which give me trouble, and in those cases with a couple blood artists on the field it really would be game. I need me some Killing Wave ...

I'm also thinking of adding Harvester of Souls but not quite sure what to remove.

Ajacobik just means that you could increase your consistency by trimming some of the one and two ofs and putting more four-of creatures in. Cards like Fog Bank while playable in the right deck don't necessarily fit in a sac deck. Undying creatures like Butcher Ghoul who like to die AND come back (or something similar,) plus have synergy with Diregraf Captain are probably your best fit.

Updated by removing all the blue except for the captains, and took out a few of the beaters I had and replaced them with a pair of falkenrath nobles (who needs beaters when I'm centering on disposables?)

I still need to fit some killing waves in here and ways to deal with oblivion ring/exile cards.
