The 10,000 Immortals (Tymaret EDH)

Commander / EDH*

therichterlens Score: 1


Description

The persian empire's expansion can be largely attributed to the use of a special army of exactly 10,000 men. This unit was known to many as "The Immortals." The philosophy of this special guard was that any man killed, wounded, or seriously sick was immediately replaced by another, forever keeping the number of soldiers at exactly 10,000 and always keeping the integrity and cohesion of the unit. To their many foes, the unit of assassins seemed unkillable and many rumors arose that the soldiers were in fact undead.

This deck is a theme deck using the newly spoiled Tymaret, the Murder King as its general, and the deck's theme is centered around the legend of The 10,000 Immortals. Obviously I couldn't include 10,000 individual creatures, but i kept to the philosophy of the legend. Everything in this deck revolves around creatures replacing themselves, or killing and then using those fallen creatures against their former controllers, and/or effects derived from the entering and dying of creatures on the battlefield.

cards that will be included as soon at tappedout has them in the database:

Purphoros, God of the Forge

Hammer of Purphoros

Abhorrent Overlord

Rescue from the Underworld

Erebos, God of the Dead

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx

Alright, here we go.Some of these cards are already on your list, I was just too lazy to get out of 'list-all-the-staples' mode.

The Immortals: These represent the namesake of the deck. Either via self-recursion or reanimation, your dudes are coming back. (Bloodghast , Reassembling Skeleton , Nether Traitor , Reanimate , Animate Dead , Necromancy , Tortured Existence , Phyrexian Reclamation , Strands of Night , Living Death , Beacon of Unrest , Eldrazi Monument

The Army: If we're shooting for 10,000, we better have a way to mobilize our troops as quickly as possible . Army of the Damned , Grave Titan , Siege-Gang Commander , Mogg War Marshal , Krenko, Mob Boss , Mogg Infestation , Beetleback Chief , Firecat Blitz

The Armaments: We can't have an army without weaponry and support to take advantage of them, whether they end up dying or not (This is sort of a catch-all). Hammer of Purphoros, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Ogre Battledriver , Vicious Shadows , Pandemonium , Blood Artist , Falkenrath Noble , Pontiff of Blight , Ashnod's Altar , Phyrexian Altar , Helm of Possession , Soulblast , Confusion in the Ranks , Akroma's Memorial , Bedlam , War Cadence , Warp World .

The list is pretty obvious but I'm not sure how deep you want to go or how exactly you want to utilize your creatures. I think a zombie & goblin tribal theme would be neat - they basically act as the main force that don't mind running headlong into battle or being sacrificed for any given desired effect (Sadistic Hypnotist , Mind Slash , Attrition , Shivan Harvest ). Or we could try and find as many warrior, soldier, barbarian creatures and throw them together lol.

Forgot about Flame Fusillade (catapults along with Goblin Bombardment ) and Hellrider (for extra reach). Also, I thought that the enchantments, artifacts and some the bigger/utility creatures could be considered boons from Purphoros, for flavor.

I wanted to playtest your deck, but the playtest feature will not work if you do not have a commander selected. When your editing your deck please put your commander in the commander slot below your deck description. I want to give you suggestions but I need to feel it out first, sometimes decks are more than they appear.

Dark Prophecy Seems like it can be a dangerous addition since it does not give you the choice to lose the life an draw a card.

@BabyRhino if you have Whip of Erebos out as well, that life link goes a long way.
