Deathgreeter Discussion

Okay fellas LordBlackblade multimedia - I've made another big update. A few followup questions but I think I'm close

Here's what I've decided/sacrificed out for now:

  1. Deathgreeter - Already have blood artist added, decided to cut for now

  2. Divinity of Pride - Left it out as I added Serra & Walking Ballista, also very high CMC

  3. Generous Gift - Better removals in the deck, so did not add

  4. Necropotence - Pure $ call, deck is already getting up there

  5. Extort Cards (i.e. Thrull Parasite, Basilica Screecher, Tithe Drinker) - I want to keep these for now as I like having that as an additional source of LG, especially because I've added more low CMC in this update

  6. Spirit Loop - I think too much value and makes Karlov too scary, the return to hand is delicious.

  7. Swords to Plowshares - Left this out purely to make sure I have enough mana.

I think now what I am gonna do is play test this a LOT to see if it balances well before I cough up the $

P.S. Guys - I can't thank you enough. This has been such a cool experience. You guys have put so much effort into this.

If you'd like to catch a remote game, I have been playing games on the PlayEDH server on Discord, my username is RageRoo182#8105, feel free to add me if you'd like to play a game!

So LordBlackblade - in summary:

Also: There is a myriad of creatures I need to find ways of adding:

If you were me, what would you do? :D

And it looks like spoilers don't work in comments, at least not for me! So much for keeping things neat. Anyway, here's what I wanted to say:




  • Curse of Fool's Wisdom - This really screws over one opponent, but what you should be shooting for is stuff that does "splash damage" so to speak, remember, you will usually have three or more opponents in a game.


  • Armillary Sphere - This one is just okay. Ensures you hit land drops, but doesn't boost you

  • Bontu's Monument - I don't feel like you're running enough creatures for this effect to pay off

  • Fountain of Renewal - "On your upkeep" effects seem really powerful, but on a multiplayer format, your upkeep happens less often relatively speaking. It's not terrible for the cost, but I'm sure we can do better


  • Final Parting - I don't think you have enough graveyard interaction to make this better than other tutors



  • Murder - There are definitely better kill spells we can find

  • Ray of Distortion - Not bad, you're definitely getting that choice is key in EDH; however, I think there are a couple better options to choose from




  • Sun Droplet - This card is a sleeper! Not that it says each upkeep, helping you stack those sweet, sweet Karlov triggers

  • Talisman of Hierarchy - I love the talismans. Great rocks in any multicolor EDH deck in my opinion


  • Read the Bones - One of my favorite black draw spells. Card selection plus draw is generally very powerful

  • Syphon Mind - A critically underplayed draw spell in my opinion. Puts you up quite a few cards on each opponent



  • Return to Dust - Gives you options and can snag two cards for one. Considered a staple in some circles

(I've been on this site a long time and I still haven't figured out the quirks of coding on here all that well!)

I took a gander. Honestly, not bad for you first list!

Here are some adds that might be worth considering. I know multimedia already recommended some of these, but here is my take:

Adds Show

Here are my cut recommendations to make room for upgrades/changes:

dododestroyer on Yawg Dawg - Machine Daddy cEDH

Definitely strong considerations! I would say this list is more of a shell that is still in development that each player should flavor to taste. That being said, Disciple of the Vault is hard to annihilate a table with versus something like Zulaport Cutthroat and doesn't help prolong our our plays like Deathgreeter or an intersection of these two like Blood Artist. As is, this build wants to draw a lot of cards and control the board with a lot of -1/-1 counters. Disciple of the Vault has the upside of being a 1-drop, but does not prolong our plays by gaining life, and does not put the hurt on the entire table enough. Arcbound Ravager is also a worthy inclusion. However, we usually want to sacrifice our artifact creatures to Yawg-daddy or KCI. If a game goes long and we need to beatdown (often relevant!) Hangarback Walker is a more synergistic option as the extra tokens allow us to draws cards with Yawg-dawg, is a "0" drop for scrap trawler targets and can be made very powerful for singular beats. Thanks for your thoughts!

KvltWind: Apologies, I must have missed your comment! Nether Traitor or Reassembling Skeleton is the creature getting reanimated, while Phyrexian Altar plus either Genesis Chamber or Pawn of Ulamog make the necessary mana.

Skydaddy: Are you confused about how it works rules-wise, or about why I'm including it in this deck? It makes a bunch of tokens each turn (not just your turn), which you can sacrifice to Yawgmoth. Moreover, you can block with them THEN sacrifice for cards/removal. Pair with Blood Artist or Zulaport Cutthroat or Deathgreeter or Whip of Erebos for best results ;) It's basically Ophiomancer on steroids.

xSKINCOLLECTORx Thanks for the comments and suggestions!

  1. Phyrexian Altar + Reassembling Skeleton isn't meant to generate infinite mana, but paired with Pitiless Plunderer creates infinite death triggers and requires 1 of 3 aristocrats to drain all opponents.

  2. Deathgreeter is by no means meant to get me infinite life, but rather bolster life lost from other sources. I specifically chose it over other options such as Syr Konrad, the Grim for the CMC 1. The draining aristocrats I'm using for that effect are CMC 2, 2, and 3; making them a lot more consistent to play.
