Bontu the Glorified Discussion

KibaAlpha on Teysa Queen of the Aristocrats

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.

Lets look at what we should be adding,

Bontu the Glorified , Bontu's Monument , Malevolent Awakening

I'd remove Revel in Riches . You really do want to be able to play that at flash speed to get your value from it.

Phyrexian Arena There is better card draw you can get.

Ghostly Prison With death triggers there are ways to remove your opponents creatures rather then worry about making them pay 2 mana per to attack.

Anointed Procession you can do without. Creatures that die and create tokens will create double the tokens from Teysa Karlov so she herself is like Anointed Procession .

I'd lose the four "Sorcery" cards you have. If anything I'd replace Black Sun's Zenith with Toxic Deluge .

Sword of the Animist . Only good if you are attacking a lot.

Skullclamp That one can go either way. I opted to remove it from my build. I found better options.

Blade of the Bloodchief

Thrilling Encore If done right you won't need your opponents creatures.

Doomblade and Fatal Push Focus on using Dictate of Erebos , Grave Pact

add some kind of sac outlet or a couple more instant creature kills, and add Curse of Fool's Wisdom to pair with that Vilis, Broker of Blood .

Sorin Markov and Sorin's Vengeance wouldn't be bad here. I have both I could trade away if you want. Other cards I have that I'm willing to trade to you that could help this deck is Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet and Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief and Bloodhusk Ritualist .

Directions to take this would be board control, hand control, an aristocrats utilizing Viscera Seer and Blood Artist . Blood Seeker wouldn't hurt against go wide strategies. I have all three of those if you'd to trade for them too.

Bontu the Glorified isn't bad here, and works well with Blood Artist .

Whip of Erebos can help recover alot of life you'll be losing. Come to think of it, Erebos, God of the Dead isn't too bad as it will shut down life gain decks and draw you cards.

Nirkana Revenant is great for this deck.

Dread Shade with a Whispersilk Cloak or other evasion enabler can do some serious damage.

Ob Nixilis, Unshackled can do some serious damage.

Any of the Ob Nixilis planeswalkers and Lili plansewalkers wouldn't hurt

Archon_Bel on First, Do All Harm (Yawgmoth, Thran Physician)

Power level is the reason why I decided to run those creature stealing effects along with a couple of other beatsticks like Bontu the Glorified and Ob Nixilis, Unshackled . None of those cards are dedicated to combo'ing out and are there to interact with the rest of the board.

The place I plan on playing at had people running stuff like Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip and Niv-Mizzet Reborn . There was also one guy who said he wanted to build a Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves deck. I don't really know how powerful and competitive these commanders are, but regardless, how do you think the deck looks as of now? TappedOut says it's basically half and half between being competitive and casual, but I have no idea how it determines that and if it's reliable.

I suggest,

Burnished Hart and Knight of the White Orchid for extra lands.

Malevolent Awakening for creature recursion.

Archon of Justice for recurable removal.

Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder for tokens on creature cast.

Bontu's Monument mana reduction and death trigger on creature cast.

Bontu the Glorified a sac outlet and death trigger in one.

Greed for card draw.

Erebos, God of the Dead for card draw and opponent lifegain prevention.

Tainted Remedy a more powerful turn opponent lifegain against themself.

Hall of Heliod's Generosity bring back those enchantments.

Crypt Ghast , Bubbling Muck and Dark Ritual for early-mid mana ramp.

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , Cabal Coffers and Expedition Map get out the most powerful way to ramp in black.

Butcher of Malakir creature removal. Don't let the high cmc turn you away from him. Black can ramp easily enough to get him out.

Smothering Tithe best new white card that can ramp any colour.

Vampiric Tutor , Demonic Tutor , Diabolic Intent and Enlightened Tutor to get your combo pieces on the field ASAP.

Phyrexian Reclamation and Malevolent Awakening are solid creature recursion.

Bontu the Glorified is a sac outlet and death trigger. Value.

Burnished Hart is good to fetch a couple basic lands. Always helpful.

Bubbling Muck No explanation required.

Toxic Deluge Board wipe that gets around indestructible.
