Bastion of Remembrance


When Bastion of Remembrance enters the battlefield, create a 1/1 white Human Soldier creature token.

Whenever a creature you control dies (is put into the graveyard from the battlefield), each opponent loses 1 life and you gain 1 life.

multimedia on Cards that buff zombie tribal?

Zombie Master and Filth don't buff, but instead they can make your Zombies unblockable. Noxious Ghoul can wreck your opponent's creatures since it triggers each time a Zombie token is created. This effect is essentially giving your Zombies evasion since it will clear away opponent blockers.

Zombies can have an advantage using your life as a resource for repeatable draw. Cryptbreaker, Graveborn Muse, Undead Augur is Zombie tribal draw using life. Bolas's Citadel is powerful black card that uses your life which can also be a sac outlet for 10 Zombie tokens.

Augur/Dark Prophecy/Erebos, Bleak-Hearted + Blood Artist/Bastion of Remembrance/Zulaport Cutthroat pairing these cards can be a draw engine with Zombie tokens.

Plague Belcher, Vengeful Dead are Zombie tribal aristocrats and with Zombie tokens they pair well with a free activation sac outlet such as Carrion Feeder, Phyrexian Altar, Viscera Seer, Blasting Station, Ashnod's Altar.

Gravecrawler is Zombie tribal repeatable sac fodder for Gisa. Skullclamp is nice draw with tokens, when you're sacing creatures and with Gravecrawler.

Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose combos well with the lifegain, yes but, the triggers of Bastion of Remembrance have a net effect that is identical without the non-drawable effect for creatures of Enduring Renewal. Also, if it goes to the graveyard it would not synergize with Abiding Grace or Proclamation of Rebirth. Then, the only way to play it is if it was already in your hand or on the battlefield before Enduring Renewal comes into play, or you play it using the ability from Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord. I specifically excluded creatures that cost more than 1 so they could be economically reanimated in this way.

If we were to swap it one for one with Bastion of Remembrance for the sake of comparison, we also lose the synergistic ability to 'Dead Reckoning style' tutor it from your graveyard to the top of your library like you would be able to do with Bastion of Remembrance + Hall of Heliod's Generosity .

The great thing about this deck is that there are 4 cards that give you infinite life, 4 that give you infinite win conditions of one kind or another, and another one that does both for a total of 9 possible trigger cards. The trick then is to have at least 1 of them and get one of the 7 creature pieces and one of the Enduring Renewals as fast and efficiently as possible. For this reason I cut back on my initial build of 4 each of the Wardens primarily in favor of general tutors. I had to give up triggers to more reliably find missing pieces, usually the Renewal since by then I likely had one of the creatures in hand or in the graveyard, but not always which is why most of the tutors find more than just Enchantments.

Would Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose have a potential slot in the deck, seeing as how it turns your infinite lifegain into immediate damage? Idk. Your deck plan seems incredibly tight and efficient so far, and Vito would be at the upper end of the curve, but it might t3 nicely, dropping the same turn as your other damage wincon, Bastion of Remembrance.

I'm not sure if combos are your style, but if you wanted to include one that fits with the Party & Reanimator themes of your deck, I'd recommend checking out Leonin Relic-Warder + Animate Dead.

This explanation from Commander Spellbook can walk you through it. Since you already have Elas il-Kor, Sadistic Pilgrim in your deck, it can give you a source of death trigger damage.

If you think the combo is up your alley, Necromancy & Dance of the Dead are some not-so budget upgrades/expansions, or simply just a Bastion of Remembrance for Aristocrat redundancy.

Nice deck, I do have a few suggestions though. I'll keep things budget friendly (mostly) and try to give an explanation for the card.

Seize the Spotlight will almost always draw you 3 essentially free or ramping you by 3 for your next turn.

Scepter of Celebration on Prossh is disgusting. Sac all your Kobolds, Prossh hits harder, and makes a LOT of tokens.

Indulge / Excess will make a lot of tokens and a bunch of treasures later.

Nature's Lore for Three Visits #2.

Bastion of Remembrance is a sturdier Zulaport with a buddy (run both).

Mishra, Claimed by Gix  Meld is a little pricier but it's another go-wide bleed effect that puts in some serious work here. It's also just hilarious to swing with a bunch of 0/1's.

Lastly I'd suggest more 2 drop ramp. I run a lot of mana rocks personally including all 6 signets/talismans.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's filled with go-wide effects like Jarad, Sheoldred, Massacre Wurm, Grave Pact/Dictate, etc. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Prossh's Dastardly Bastard Children

I have an Elenda deck as well! I would highly recommend Massacre Girl. As long as Elenda has at least 1 counter on her already, and assuming there's other small creatures out, Massacre Girl will kill everything but Elenda and herself, and Elenda will witness every death and love every second of it. Personally, I found the creatures that did single target damage on creature death (Blood Artist and Falkenrath Noble, namely) to be expendable. Looks like you've got almost all the important hitters that ding everyone else when your creatures die (Zulaport Cutthroat, Cruel Celebrant, and Bastion of Remembrance) and that is usually enough. Although you are missing Vindictive Vampire. I'd also recommend Grim Haruspex for card draw, although tokens dying don't trigger it. Feel free to check out my list here! Dusk Rose Parade

halestor91 Halestor19 1 Less mana for Elas il-Kor, Sadistic Pilgrim is a huge deal. I like her more than Bastion of Remembrance. I've played a few test games with Braids, Arisen Nightmare and she's pretty insane. Drawing 3+ cards per turn is really great as long as we're not against token decks. I've found myself tutoring for her somewhat often. I haven't been able to test Weatherlight Compleated a ton yet since it's been rarely showing up, but I still like it in theory. Ratadrabik of Urborg is too niche imo. I realize you may have seen my update by now since your first comment is pretty old, but I wanted to answer your questions anyway for clarity haha.

Saw in Half is interesting but 3 mana feels like too much for this effect. In a normal deck this is essentially a clone, but we get to take advantage of death triggers, so it's a bit better. However, I'd probably rather just run Animate Dead for much better consistency and effectiveness from behind.
