Aphemia, the Cacophony

Legendary Enchantment Creature — Harpy


At the beginning of your end step, you may exile an enchantment card from your graveyard. If you do, create a 2/2 black Zombie creature token.

Thank you very much your feedback and suggestions.

I really plan to cut out Breeding Pit and Aphemia, the Cacophony , I just feel I need more token factories and those are my only possibilities right now. Ophiomancer and Bloodline Keeper  Flip are brilliant cards for my deck, unfortunately I don't have money for them right now.

Ghoulcaller Gisa is a good call, but I really won't have big power creatures, I could sacrifice only 0-1-2 power creatures, and for 5 mana it's too much from a creature without ETB effects.

I don't want Glaring Spotlight and Daring Fiendbonder in my deck, since these cards are for attack support. I don't feel like attack at all with this deck. Probably all my creatures will defend my health and my PW's and they will be sacrificed before the summoning sickness wears off.

I made some changes tho, some cards arrived, what I ordered previously: Sword of the Animist instead of Sword of Body and Mind

Crypt Ghast instead of Solemn Simulacrum

and I took off some "targeted removals" for more Damge//Gain Life effects like: Blood Artist , Bontu's Monument and Vindictive Vampire

For a test deck you already seem to have a lot right. In terms of improvements you can make, I would definitely cut a few cards. Breeding Pit and Aphemia, the Cacophony are both extremely small impact token creators that take a long time to get considerable value, specifically aphemia who does nothing when faced with graveyard hate and likely won't have many enchantments to target in the first place. I would replace these with Ophiomancer , Ghoulcaller Gisa , and maybe Bloodline Keeper  Flip. I would also remove Sword of Body and Mind in favor of better protection at a lower cost, since its attack triggers are mediocre at best. I would recommend adding a few equipment pieces that give hexproof and indestructible, so that ayara can stick around during boardwipes and drain lots of life. Finally, two last cards I would attempt to make room for are Glaring Spotlight and Daring Fiendbonder .

Yes, Aphemia, the Cacophony counts as both a creature and an enchantment because it is both types:

300.2. Some objects have more than one card type (for example, an artifact creature). Such objects combine the aspects of each of those card types, and are subject to spells and abilities that affect either or all of those card types.

That said, Aphemia needs to be on the battlefield to trigger and exiles a card from your graveyard, so you would need it to die between the ability triggering and resolving in order to exile itself.

Answering your question in two parts.

First, Aphemia, the Cacophony has Enchantment in the type line, so it counts as an enchantment. It's the same logic as Artifact Creatures, which count as both artifacts and creatures.

Second, Aphemia, the Cacophony cannot exile itself. The ability exiles an enchantment from the graveyard, and the ability can only be used if you have Aphemia on the battlefield. If you have one Aphemia in play and another in the graveyard, then the one on the battlefield can exile the graveyard one.

Aphemia, the Cacophony Do Lengendary Enchantment creature cards count as an enchantment? For example, Aphemia, the Cacophony has the ability to exile an enchantment card, could it exile itself?

Gravebreaker Lamia: You do get to tutor something to the grave, but you don't really cast from the grave. I'd rather just play Final Parting and also tutor something to hand.

The Birth of Meletis is kinda meh. It's an early enchanment yes but I feel it doesn't do much. I'd rather play an Luminarch Ascension or just a mana rock.

Mythos of Snapdax seems too restrictive. Another boardwipe sounds much better. Still a low costing one such as Wrath of God, or the new one from commander legends that's mono white and 5 mana Slash the Ranks.

Merciless Eviction should go in for most boardwipes as it's so good. Perhaps for Ruinous Ultimatum as that is very color restrictive and merciless is less mana.

Aphemia, the Cacophony isn't that good.

With your low curve and many rocks I'd cut a land or cut the two Diamonds as they're kinda bad. Sadly. They're acceptable in mono colored but not really here.


Ghostly Prison/Sphere of Safety is necessary pillowfort. There's a black version too with cumulative upkeep as well. Might be good in our meta against many of David's decks, as well as mine.

Alseid of Life's Bounty is just great. Protects either Ghen or an enchantment you don't want dying at that time.

Agent of Erebos: Some much needed gravehate.

Aegis of the Gods is good for protection against direct burn.

Spirit of the Labyrinth is good if you're leaning into the staxxy parts of cards like Eidolon of Rhetoric. Along the same lines Stony Silence and Aura of Silence are nice picks.

I have many more recommendations but these are the start. I don't want to particularly overwhelm or change the deck.

GL my guy.

It's clear that you want to be an aristocrat deck so I would recommend more creatures. Here are some that card that make creature tokens and are more budget friendly: Bastion of Remembrance, Abhorrent Overlord, Aphemia, the Cacophony, Dark Salvation, and Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder. Do you own Bitterblossom? If you do, then I would consider it. Here are three non-budget cards that you might consider after playtesting: Grave Titan, Bloodline Keeper  Flip, and Ghoulcaller Gisa.

Update: 3x Tymaret Calls the Dead in for 3x Call of the Death-Dweller

I had to move faster because there is a lot of very fast aggro out there right now. Tymaret Saga doubles up with Aphemia, the Cacophony to put out a lot of zombies and it works better than waiting on things to die to cast Call of dd
