Butcher of Malakir

Creature — Vampire Warrior


Whenever this or another creature you control dies, each opponent sacrifices a creature. (Is put into the graveyard from the battlefield, tokens are put into the graveyard before they cease to exist)

Unlife on SKELETONS!

I'd start with Jund, its fits the colors of nearly every skeleton printed, gives plenty of removal, ramp and utility cards. Skeletons tend to die and come back, so maybe some sort of Kresh the Bloodbraided sacrifice deck. Have things like Butcher of Malakir and Goblin Bombardment, sac your creatures to make your opponents sac things to make Kresh bigger and swing in.

If you want the blue for those last few skeletons, Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder could be a great fit, cascade into more skeletons and swing with an army.

Harpy Egg


, Sacrifice ~: Choose one

-Gain 3 life

-Add one mana of any color

-Draw a card

I don't know which lunatic first thought they wanted to taste the eggs of the harpies, but it has since become a highly prized delicacy. Mainly because of its potential to expand ones thoughts.

Create a card with a "what happens to me happens to you" effect like Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos, and Butcher of Malakir but with a different trigger and effect. (The dying and sacrificing has obviously been done.)

Sorry, some last minute thoughts:

Surrak Dragonclaw or Stonehoof Chieftain are great replacements for Khenra Charioteer.

Nath of the Gilt-Leaf is a good replacement for that Blaring Recruiter if you still haven't replaced it.

Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs is better for a good defense. With all the creatures already giving haste (your commander being one of them), Rushblade Commander can be swapped.

Jazal Goldmane will give HUGE attacks and could replace Kargan Warleader is you're willing to dump mana on combat.

I would add Drumhunter due to it's card draw. Replace Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip if you can.

Some notable mentions include: Boldwyr Intimidator, Arashin Foremost, Champion of Rhonas, Butcher of Malakir, Dragonscale General, and Flamerush Rider.

Stardragon on An Actual Ninja Phoenix Deck

Since you choose Desecrated Tomb and Tormod, the Desecrator why not Anax, Hardened in the Forge so you get a 1/1 bat, a 2/2 zombie and a 2/2 satyr when a creature dies or returns form the graveyard?

Some extra on death mileage particularly with your altar (I would consider Ashnod's Altar as well)- Pitiless Plunderer for more mana, Species Specialist or Dark Prophecy for card draw, Zulaport Cutthroat, Blood Artist or Bastion of Remembrance for some life gain/drain action or Butcher of Malakir and Dictate of Erebos so when you lose a creature they do too

I saw you have some recursion why not consider Return from Extinction and it's upgraded form Raise the Draugr? I would cut Exhume for one of these they cost the same and can bring back two phoenixes or ninjas and doesn't have the downside of letting your opponent bring a card back. and they cost less though they don't put on to battlefield so that may not be to your liking

Extra board wipes that won't hit your phoenixes (though will hit your ninjas) are Magmaquake, Earthquake, Faultline and Subterranean Tremors

More damage- Berserkers' Onslaught, Wound Reflection, Gratuitous Violence

Harder to block Phoenixes so you can ninjutsu even easier- Goblin War Drums, Intimidate, Cover of Darkness

Maybe Heartless Summoning-to make your commander cheaper to cast in the graveyard (the only time you should cast this from your command zone is the first time, and anytime is get's exiled as this way you can ignore the commander tax as much as possible)

And don't forget Fervor so all your birds are hasty and can attack as so as they on the field so you ninjutsu even faster

I have to love your inclusion of Butcher of Malakir. I have only ever seen it used in mono-black vampire decks.

I am pretty new to working with Wilhelt, but I have made one of my own and was looking at what cards people put into theirs. I liked Grimoire of the Dead and Call to the Grave and may use them in my deck. I was wondering why you have some cards like Dread Shade or Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon. They are not zombies nor do they seem to synergize with your deck. Perhaps you could replace them with Gisa and Geralf,Ravenous Rotbelly or something else that synergizes with your deck. Lastly, I noticed you seen to have a decent amount of sacrifice in your deck have you considered adding cards like Dictate of Erebos, Ruthless Deathfang, or Butcher of Malakir. Hope things work out with your deck and that you have fun with it. Wilhelt has been a lot of fun for me so far and I hope you are having fun with it too.

Kokusho, the Evening Star could fit in very well, Butcher of Malakir if you want to make sure people are sacing creatures
