Ashnod's Altar

I understand the reasoning behind cards like Corrupted Conviction, but to me the bonus is not more than the cost. Drawing two off of one card, effectively going up 1 card in hand one time per include, is simply not enough to warrant a spot, even if it helps you proliferate. A card like Erebos, Bleak-Hearted lets you sacrifice your tokens and draw off of them, but does so more than once as a single card, and also could offer removal depending on the board state. Shadowheart, Dark Justiciar similarly has a higher ceiling because it's one card that can draw several more, and more than once, though I do understand these are not phyrexians and so somewhat less synergistic in that sense (but the instants/sorceries aren't phyrexian either, so I think the point is mute). I think cards like Ashnod's Altar and Krark-Clan Ironworks are incredibly synergistic here, as they provide the mana to activate your tokens while potentially also triggering the proliferate, I did not notice they were not in but would recommend them as well.

This deck focuses on stalling opponents with pox and lifegain long enough to set up an infinite combo with Pitiless Plunderer, Ashnod's Altar, and Reassembling Skeleton with other cards to fill the combo.

I used CSS to make this page look cool, but then had a huge amount of lag. Google didn't help and couldn't find a forum on this site to help. Hence why it doesn't have a description for now.

Rooftop Storm comes down to mana value. By turn 7, I hope to have Ashnod's Altar/Phyrexian Altar out, or some other ramps. With either, Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver will give you a token in return. And with Poppet Factory  Flip out as well, it becomes infinite.

For Tombstone Stairwell, pump out your sets of tokens. Pay the cumulative upkeep once or twice, and then using Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver, when all of those tokens gets sacrificed, you get that many Zombie 2/2 B w/ Decayed. With Poppet Factory  Flip, before and after they get sac'd, they're 3/3. And once you do let Tombstone Stairwell go, your opponent doesn't get any of those Zombie tokens.

TheRevelator Yeah, I ended up finding space for Hoarding Broodlord and Restoration Angel by cutting Imperial Recruiter and Recruiter of the Guard for better flavor and synergy! Easy choice once I realized, although I would love to find room for the recruiters in the future.

Ashnod's Altar and Disciple of the Vault are both part of one of this deck's Razaketh lines in addition to their other utility, but I admittedly would not be running them otherwise. The steps are as follows:

  1. Cheat Razaketh into play via Kaalia

  2. Sac Kaalia to Tutor for Dockside

  3. Sack Dockside to Tutor for Reanimate (or Animate Dead/Necromancy)

  4. Reanimate + Sac Dockside to Tutor for Corpse Dance

  5. Corpse Dance + Sac Dockside twice to Tutor for Altar and Disciple

  6. Loop it up!

Or you can just go with the Razakats strat if the aforementioned plan goes to pot.

Heavily considering Shadow-Rite Priest as another cheap piece that can activate the winning lines by sacrificing Kaalia and taking her place in the 1st step, but it's lack of Haste is a real downside.

Pretty convoluted, I know lol

Azoth2099 I see that you have Hoarding Broodlord in your list!

As far as cards to cut for Master of Cruelties, I don't see that you're playing Bomberman combo, so what is the Disciple of the Vault for exactly? Just a hate piece against treasures?

I'm always of the mindset that it's better to build your deck to prioritize and protect your own win condition(s), rather than try and just use cards as hate bears or 1-for-1 removal.

I'd suggest to cut Disciple for Master as a way to further advance your gameplan of killing the table lol

I do have a question about the include of Ashnod's Altar - your smaller creatures seem very impactful for either card advantage or disrupting your opponents in some way, so what exactly are you sacrificing to the Altar? Is it just to generate more mana to get to the top of the curve faster?

Another card you could add to ensure that Master gets through more often is Access Tunnel

I wound up cutting it from my list for more colored mana sources, but I'm not seeing you playing any infinite combos so if Master becomes your game-plan to quickly eliminate opponents, it could be helpful!

DareiJuxis, I completely agree about wipes. I was just curious which ones may synergize the best with Brimaz. Thank you for some of those recommendations. I put in Austere Command and Farewell on top of keeping Sunfall. I did think about putting in Basalt Monolith and Rings of Brighthearth to get infinite colorless mana in order to keep up with the amount of incubate tokens that are made.

I did add Greed like you recommended. The reason I kept things like Corrupted Conviction is the sac additional cost to the card in order to sac any phyrexian token I have to help trigger Brimaz. Would you recommend against that? Like an Ashnod's Altar in order to help pay for another to take its place?

My favortie thing to do with my old krenko deck was sacrifice a ton of tokens with Ashnod's Altar, and dump like 40 mana into a Ghitu Fire and one shot someone. Or, if you have enough tokens/goblins/mana, Comet Storm and one shot everyone >:)

Hey there,

So, I was playing this weekend, and a player was comboing off with Nim Deathmantle and Ashnod's Altar, and a player wanted to interact after the player payed for the trigger and before the reanimation happened exiliing the creature. At least for me there's no room for interaction at this point, but I'll ask just to make sure. Let's say that the player has a Tithe Taker, with afterlife and ashnod's altar on the field and nim death mantle. He sacrifices the tithe taker, creating a trigger for the death mantle and the afterlife trigger. He resolves the afterlife first, and then sacrifice the token. So now he has 4 colorless mana to infinite loop. He let the ability of deathmantle resolves paying 4 mana and reanimating tithe taker. This is how it was played out. Once he payed 4 mana for the trigger, you can't exile the creature cause the ability already resolved and the creature now is on the battlefield, and if you exile the creature before he payed for the trigger, he'll still have 4 colorless mana cause he didn't payed for it yet right?
