Desecrated Tomb


Whenever one or more creatures cards leave your graveyard, create a 1/1 black Bat creature token with flying.

It does go infinite just like the Desecrated Tomb method, just need to have an initial creature.

  • Sac Hogaak + 1/1 (any creature) to Greater Good > Create 2 Citizens (From Caldaia Guardian, Draw a total of 9 cards then discarding 6. Re-cast Hogaak (Convoke 2 Citizens + Delve 5).

It’s me again :) with another suggestion:

Caldaia Guardian: another Greater Good combo piece, this being a creature makes it a better Desecrated Tomb gives immediate value as convoke for Hogaak and synergizes with the deck’s recursion/ reanimation effects.

Thanks! I didn't knew about that Desecrated Tomb + Altar of Dementia line until now.

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

Hey man, looking over it, obviously a great looking budget list. Keeping a general mindset of no cards over $3 I would add:

Removal : Seal of Removal, Seal of Doom, Oubliette, Kenrith's Transformation. These are awesome removals that you can play and keep until you need to use them, and Returnable with Mully

Ramp : Bounty of the Luxa, Mind Stone, Rootcoil Creeper, Leyline Prowler, Kodama's Reach Good cheap cards to help you get Muldrotha out faster, and then be able to play 2-3 spells a turn. The Prowler is also just an awesome blocker sometimes with his deathtouch.

Top End : World Breaker because he just deals with SO MANY weird things your opponents could be doing, Tatyova, Benthic Druid is awesome, especially with the fetch-style lands you've got going on.

Tutor : Dig Up Great budget Tutor for your colors.

I would take out: Too high CMC / Clunky : Deadbridge Chant, Izoni, Thousand-Eyed, Worm Harvest, Mythos of Brokkos (replace with Dig Up)

Too uneventful / slow / non-impactful : Desecrated Tomb, Perpetual Timepiece, Tamiyo, Collector of Tales, Growth Spiral, Llanowar Elves, Foundation Breaker, Vessel of Nascency, Stinkweed Imp

seshiro_of_the_orochi, thank you for the thoughts! Gravebreaker Lamia is a great idea; got to think of a cut. I also like Desecrated Tomb, making more tokens from the mana base!

I'm really glad you liked the tone of the deck. That is exactly what I like to do with Commanders that people think of as boogie-men. I built an Atraxa deck in that same vein. Instead of building powerfully, I like to do something off-the-wall. I appreciate your comment!

First things first, I really like the tone of the deck description. This is a casually built deck that doesn't want to max out, it's just fun. Great thought. I built Sylvia Brightspear and Khorvath Brightflame with a similar attitude, and the deck is just a beauty.

Regarding this list, let me suggest some more underplayed, but fun cards for it:

Gravebreaker Lamia is a powerful tutor, a fine creature and even provides ramp. A card I really like in Lurrus of the Dream-Den is Omen of the Dead. It's cheap recursion and can even sacrifice itself. Desecrated Tomb is similar to Tormod, and the flying tokens can definitely add up pretty fast. Revival Experiment is another card could be really fun in here.
