Altar's Reap Discussion
1 month ago
redshogun In terms of budget, I am gonna play the long game in upgrading this one, but I'll be sure to pick up a Vona's Hunger ASAP. I have Village Rites and Altar's Reap in but usually dont have a creature to sacrifice. DO you run these?/do I need more creatures?

I love it and hate it.
I think you should cut like half the board wipes. And add cards like Village Rites, Burnt Offering, Deadly Dispute, Altar's Reap, Costly Plunder, Diabolic Intent, Tormented Thoughts, Morbid Curiosity, Mind Extraction, Momentous Fall, Natural Order, Life's Legacy, Eldritch Evolution, Metamorphosis, and last consider Bonds of Mortality. All of these cards pair well with your cmdr. Meaning you'll need less board wipes as you will always have it in the command zone.

Konrad seems too slow and doesn't have much impact for a 5 drop.
One thing you badly need here is an instant-speed reusable sac outlet. which can be used to sac your tap creatures for untapped tokens to surprise block, or just sac anything that is targeted with exile removal, or get instant speed card draw/drain. The only good one in pioneer thats a human is Cartel Aristocrat, and it might be worth splashing white just for that. White would also let you run Cruel Celebrant (not a vampire unfortunately), and maybe Return to the Ranks.

Definitely. Cast Down is hands down the best removal in pauper imo*.
I'd actually find it more fun if it wasn't legal, am I the only one? I liked thinking "oh yes this is a mono deck, Victim of Night" or "Building a rakdos deck, better use Terminate" (*which actually could still be better than cast down if you have the right mana) or even "I can't get the right mana on curve, better use Doom Blade this time". I find it was better while deckbuilding, because you had more alternatives (off-topic: I think the same of Village Rites and Altar's Reap).
Either way, that's not a real problem. At least it kills that awful overused Gurmag Angler.

it seems to me that you could get better card draw with value if instead of Ancient Craving and Ambition's Cost you ran the ones like Village Rites , Altar's Reap , Costly Plunder , or Bankrupt in Blood
