I don't have any experience with Historic, but could Shambling Ghast get in here? As a Zombie that begs to be sacrificed, it feels like it would fit in well.

I would also recommend at least one more Ghoulish Procession and a couple more sac outlets--maybe Bontu the Glorified or Immersturm Predator?

RA_HORAKHTE on What is your favorite Plane, …

Withouth any doubt my favourite plane is AMONKHET.

I love ancient Egypt, I had the luck to already visit Egypt and enjoy their ruins, museums and natural enviroments. I love their rich culture, their complex mythology and their awesome landscapes, from the rocky valleys and the sand deserts filled with tombs, funerary temples and pyramids, to the rich oasis and riversides of the Nile full of life and vegetation.

Until Amonkhet came out, many egypt fans like me were hoping for and egyptian plane very hard, and Amonkhet was the final gift.

I love how WotC team designed a new fantastic culture clearly inspired in ancient Egypt but with their own imaginative touch. The concept of the city of Nakthamun being a rich oasis protected from the perils of the deserts fits well the relationship of egyptians with the river Nile, living in their fertile sides, while buring their deads in the dry desertic west grounds.

The chosen mechanics like embalm to represent mummification, the deserts, and cycling to represent the need to seek and recycle in a hard desert enviroment where very fitting.

The awesome gods were also both recognizable and original: Oketra the True as an allusion to the protective but warrior feline goddesses Sejmet and Bastet, Rhonas the Indomitable as a reinterpretation of the guardian cobra god Wadjet but in a more savage way, Hazoret the Fervent as a twisted concept of Anubis (still being related to the afterlife journy) but with some "red" aspects of the desert and war god Seth, Kefnet the Mindful clearly as the sage ibis god Toth, and Bontu the Glorified as a mix of the river god Sobek and the monstrous goddess Ammyt, who keeped the passage to the afterlife devouring the souls of the not worthy ones.

The fallen gods also where awesome, representing with The Scorpion God the perils of the desert and the scorpion goddess Serket, The Scarab God being a reference to Kephri, wich represented the cycle of solar resurrection but in a more "evil" way, and finally The Locust God as a wink to the hebrew's famous myth of the plagues of Egypt. And Nicol Bolas was the perfect villain, bein a subbtle reference to the chaos serpent Aphopis.

Other famous characters where also referenced, like Cleopatra with her death myth caused by an snake bite in Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and the young-deceased pharaoh Tutankhamun in Temmet, Vizier of Naktamun.

I'm hopping to return to Amonkhet in the future, to know how their people have reconstructed their civilization after Hour of Devastation, having a new Hazoret card and maybe new risen gods or the appearance of unknown ones... and of course more egyptian flavored legends for EDH!!!

Yo uh Bontu the Glorified shows up as legal in pauper for some reason even tho he clearly isn't.

It'd be cool if he was tho.

Was looking at a list of Pauper cards and I noticed Bontu the Glorified is somehow legal.

How tho? The dude's a mythic rare, right?

Take Out: - Merciless Eviction exiles so that will not trigger our boy, Nev.

  • Bontu the Glorified really doesn't seem that good. You dont have a lot of creatures to sack. Sure you could get a bunch from Nev. Its too many conditions needed for Bontu.

  • Emeria's Call  Flip is not the best when it does not even give the very angels it makes, indestructible

  • Winds of Abandon for the same reasoning as Merciless Eviction

  • Mnemonic Deluge is so much mana and you do not even really have any good targets for it. It wont get you an overloaded rift, it can target a board clear but you dont need to do that multiple times

  • Court of Grace seems slow and you will almost never be the monarch probably.
