Bontu the Glorified Discussion

StopShot on I want an enchantress commander ...

Oh, one last thing. You can choose to have Nethroi, Apex of Death mutate off an indestructible creature too which is how you'll guarantee your mutate triggers. I'd recommend running creatures such as: Bontu the Glorified, Darksteel Myr, Predator Ooze, Rhonas the Indomitable and Yahenni, Undying Partisan. Indestructible commanders are pretty baller.

KibaAlpha You Not sure I agree with your removal of Blood Artist and addition of Bontu the Glorified and Bontu's Monument. Blood Artist is a staple, and if you're simply replacing it with Bastion of Remembrance I'd personally say that's something I wouldn't recommend. Teysa thrives off of redundancy, so why not have both?

Just curious about your thought process behind these changes.

Stronghold Assassin seems really weak? Like you have to untap with it, which probably won't happen. I'd highly suggest Bontu the Glorified . Oof, Scheming Symmetry ? I think I'd rather run Vampiric Tutor it can also replace Wishclaw Talisman It seems like you're giving the combo players too many tools in competitive.

Before Yargle, Glutton of Urborg was first spoiled (and decided to build that), I was originally trying to put together a Pestilence .deck helmed by Bontu the Glorified , with things like Death Pits of Rath & Worldslayer thrown in for good measure..

How’s that for a spicy one? :)

Of the X creature spells in Modern, Stonecoil Serpent fits this deck's strategy the best since it has relevant abilities and recurs as an artifact. I don't really want to be playing 0 CMC creatures just for death triggers.

There are other/cheaper drain effects, but they all have downsides that make them less relevant in this strategy than Falkenrath Noble (it has > 1 toughness, flying, and drains when any creature dies):

  • As you mentioned, 1 toughness creatures like Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat don't work.
  • Vindictive Vampire doesn't have flying and only drains when our creatures die.
  • Cruel Celebrant requires a white splash, only drains when our creatures die, and its mana cost isn't improved with Heartless Summoning . This deck could be modified to be BW or BG, but I refuse to pay ridiculous money for fetch lands, so I stick to mono-colored builds.
  • I'm thinking Bontu the Glorified may be the best option since it drains, provides a sac outlet, and can be a difficult to deal with threat.

I've looked at Fecundity lists, but most of them are GR token aggro lists.

You might want to look at

Burnished Hart , Knight of the White Orchid , Bontu the Glorified , God-Eternal Bontu , Bontu's Monument

All solid Aristocrat cards but perhaps not so for competitive.
