Dictate of Erebos Discussion

CavemanlyMan on Cracking Rats - New and Improved

I love random, obscure tribals. My input would be that both Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact are better than Butcher of Malakir . If you want more death triggers you can consider Blood Artist , Zulaport Cutthroat , Falkenrath Noble , Vindictive Vampire , ect, ect.

Also, Torgaar, Famine Incarnate seems weak when things like Scytheclaw , Quietus Spike , Virtus the Veiled , and other things that half life totals exist.

I will certainly keep those in mind.

last night got to test this version about 7 times and surprisingly came away with 4 wins. 2 of them were hitting Murderous Redcap with henge out to draw my deck...play a sac outlet...then after the cleanup discard resolved I won on the next upkeep with infinite damage.

Dockside Extortionist is an absolute beast with recursion. gave me excessively big turns with Strands of Night . handed me a commander damage win con due to it.

the other surprise all star was Nesting Dragon with either recursion outlets running. swarming opponents with optional firebreathing dorks with little to no real investment is amazing.

I tend to not tutor for combo based wins, so likely gonna stick with the 3 enablers for now since they are all really effective even without the combo.

tweaks: Berserk , Sylvan Library , Cream of the Crop , Plaguecrafter (and possibly Fleshbag Marauder and Merciless Executioner )and Artifact Mutation are on the top of my mind to add for a smoother curve. Dictate of Erebos seems far more at home than I previously believed. the deck was far more interactive than I expected for an alpha.

I don't know how much you want but I'm going to recommend some cards as a Teysa, Orzhov Scion fan.

Planar Cleansing or Hour of Revelation is great in EDH to start the board over all over again. Merciless Eviction is something you should definitely keep in the deck by the way.

Anointed Procession is really good for doubling up on token effects. Requiem Angel and Field of Souls can be really nice too. Army of the Damned can provide a lot of bodies to work with. I've won with Army of the Damned and Maw of the Obzedat before. Storm Herd is an absolute beast too.

Two artifacts that you should consider are Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar . These can let you go infinite if you also get a Darkest Hour or a Painter's Servant . I have a Darkest Hour in mine, can't justify the price of the Painter's Servant yet. Either way both of those Altars are great with or without going infinite.

Illusionist's Bracers are great on Teysa, Orzhov Scion and Maw of the Obzedat should you include one as well. Three tokens to exile two creatures? Yes, please. In theory, if you have a Maw with the Bracers out and you Storm Herd at 40 life, you can sacrifice 5 of them and have 35 11/11 flying pegasus. Great card, I think it's underrated.

Also consider getting gravepact and/or Dictate of Erebos and maybe a Martyr's Bond too. You may not exile creatures with Teysa when they're out because of the way the stack works and if you sacrifice three creatures they'll sacrifice theirs before Teysa can exile it, but it's extremely good to keep your creatures out and have everyone else open.

Unfortunately we don't play with tutors in my pod. Just trying to cut back on quick kills and end step digging for infinite combos. As much as I hate not being able to find a timely wrath or spot removal, I like the gameplay better than an LGS looping Timetwister effects on turn 3 or 4.

The complete board wipe effects I'll have to give some thought into. I could see a case of swapping out Martial Coup with one, I just happened to have a Martial Coup available so I threw it in the deck.

Black Market is a really good card, but its a non-bo with Karlov and seemingly better in Grave Pact or Dictate of Erebos led decks that utilize sacrifice effects moreso than exile effects.

Appreciate the suggestions!

I’d strongly recommend running some free sac outlets.

Ashnod's Altar

Phyrexian Altar

Altar of Dementia

Also there’s some good combos with Words of Wilding and Animation Module that let you infinitely buff of Korvold if you have acess to an altar that adds mana.

Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos could be better than butcher of Malakir due to their reduced casting cost.

Hope this is of some use :)

Have you thought about adding in some board control like Dictate of Erebos just to help keep the board the way you like it

I'm coming in with a lot here. Not going to say what to take out due to how much I am recommending, sorry.
I'd say Soul's Attendant is strictly better than Warden but running both isn't bad either. I like Attendant for when people play anti-life gain cards like Rain of Gore and others. Of course, Phyrexian Altar is a second altar that's a great sac outlet whenever you need it. Consider cards like Dictate of Erebos and Martyr's Bond , I see you already have Grave Pact on the maybeboard. Teysa Karlov is a great card to get too but consider Teysa, Orzhov Scion .

Also, you definitely should go for an Anointed Procession . Too good of a card for any white deck with tokens. This deck is already looking great though.
