Dargo, the Shipwrecker

Legendary Creature — Giant Pirate

As an additional cost to cast this spell, you may sacrifice any number of artifacts and/or creatures. This spell costs less to cast for each permanent sacrificed this way and less to cast for each other artifact or creature you've sacrificed this turn.

Loving this deck, I built my own with the Dargo, the Shipwrecker and Phyrexian Altar combo in mind and have been loving it so far. The white looks cool, and I do miss the new small white dorks in Jund. Teysa Karlov looks very spicy and it looks like she can help you run away with the game. I ended up putting more man-lands in my build, but I can support them a bit easier with only 3 colours.

Thanks for introducing me to this amazing concept, the deck looks mostly innocuous until a win can just pop up out of nowhere.

The trick is of course that sacrificing Dargo, the Shipwrecker to Thermopod will pay for its commander tax due to Dargo's artifacts or creatures sacrificed this turn clause, and the mana from Thermopod can pay for casting him again. But yeah, it needs the startup. Although Treasure tokens would work too, you don't need 3 creatures per se ;-)

I got Dargo, the Shipwrecker + Thermopod + Desecrated Tomb .

I also have a question: Building time ends 4/23/2021 @ 12:00pm PT. Wasn't that, like, 4 weeks ago?

Hey Poooootato, thank you for checking the deck out and the comment. Since I wrote the description I have seen more decks come out trying to use the backside of Extus. However, many of them try to leverage the sacrifice creatures line to lower the casting cost and I believe that is a trap due to the fact you have to sacrifice the creatures as you cast the spell; unlike something like Dargo, the Shipwrecker that counts creatures sacrificed this turn, so you are setting yourself up to be blown out when the spell is countered on the stack. Even if it is not countered you now have to get even more creatures into play to sacrifice to cast the spell again. It is just too much effort for what you get out of it. Building Extus, Oriq Overlord  Flip as I have in this deck is much less effort for much greater effect.

If you want to play it aristocrat, I agree with you that you want to use some of the very few cards in magic that return an instant or sorcery back to your hand and cheap spells to try to get extra value with short loops. I have been working on deck focusing on the front of Extus, Oriq Overlord  Flip by using Biblioplex Assistant , Living Lightning , Returned Pastcaller , and Anarchist with various effects to do these loops. However, it feels very fragile and when I make it feel less fragile, I just push it into a generic aristocrats style and I might as well just play a better aristocrats commander at that point. If I ever get it feeling better I will post it here.

3> Ahhh I've been wanting to play with Obosh, the Preypiercer and Angrath's Marauders - glad you found a spot for them. While you're at it, you could also consider other "damage doublers" such as Wound Reflection and Fiendish Duo. I've thought about a Vial-Smasher deck with a White partner just to add Gisela, Blade of Goldnight.

3> I see you enjoy big monsters and X-spells here. Oh to be young again... but seriously, this seems like a good deck to play them in as you would be rewarded. Instants are your friend, as you can Smash Vials on everyone's turn! No Comet Storm?

3> I would be worried about Vial-Smasher getting nuked from orbit as soon as your turn passes and it's no longer indestructible. You'll find Heroic Intervention and Slippery Bogbonder will help with targeted Exile removal. You already have Destroy and Sacrifice covered I see.

3> I see some cost-reduced and commander-free spells in there, but you have a limited suite. While doing research for my thoughts on Vial-Smasher, I found the following might be helpful - list is just copy/paste, so it will include some White and/or Blue cards:
