Dictate of Erebos Discussion

Jellyfisch42 on Mono black sacrifice control deck

TheVectornaut Thanks for the feedback. I've changed the deck a bit, it's a bit pricier but better. While I would love Razaketh, the Foulblooded he's out of my price range by quite a bit. Same goes with Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos . I have to say I hadn't heard of a lot of these cards so thanks for brining them up.

The biggest potential weakness I see in this deck is that there's a sort of "cost void" between your 1-drops and your big demons, and the biggest threats in the deck may not be the most mana efficient. For instance, I'd probably run Desecration Demon or Demon of Catastrophes in a sacrifice deck instead of Goremand . I imagine he's a pet card for you though, so maybe you could lean more into the reanimator angle to cheat him in quickly. Most modern versions seem to be running Goryo's Vengeance into Griselbrand and praetors still, but I tend to prefer the budget alternatives. Some additions to Blood for Bones and Gravewaker are repeated activation creatures like Hell's Caretaker and Whisper, Blood Liturgist . Unburial Rites is also fairly popular if you don't mind splashing white. For the discard, staples include Thoughtseize , Collective Brutality , Ransack the Lab , and Mind Rake . For sacrifice synergy, I think Smallpox and Sinister Concoction could be options too. I'm also a big fan of creatures that mill for this role such as Stitcher's Supplier (which helps to play the very useful Gravecrawler ) or the green Satyr Wayfinder and all its Mulch brethren. Reanimator lets you play other big threats too, some of which could be Razaketh, the Foulblooded , Eater of Hope , or Xathrid Demon to stick with the demon theme. Another card I see as being pretty expensive here is Soul Foundry . The aforementioned Hell's Caretaker can usually produce a similar result without the 1 mana tax every turn. Furthermore, the tokens it creates could interfere with Grim Haruspex , a card draw engine I usually prefer to Dark Prophecy (or maybe Harvester of Souls if I'm feeling spicy.) There is some downside in cutting noncreature permanents for their creature counterparts, so choose the option that is being hit by removal the least in your meta. If creature hate is a problem, maybe a Grave Pact or Dictate of Erebos could dissuade your opponents.

DawnsRayofLight on Tergrid Discard

Vindictive Lich : I mean, enough said, same for Mindslicer

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip: another discarding Lily that can reanimate

Mastermind's Acquisition : I think every EDH list running black should have this card. you now have a 15 card board open to you.

I run Oppression and Painful Quandary in my Death Taxes list. If you can swing it (I am only guessing you can because of imperial seal) Chains of Mephistopheles

Killing Wave is another good sac spell, Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos as well

Holy Broly, this is even more terrible than I had imagined. Some other cards to consider:

Painful Quandary is simply beyond obnoxious here. The Eldest Reborn is similarly nasty. Might I suggest Grave Betrayal for when Tegrid isn't around? Merciless Executioner and Syphon Flesh are more sac-effects. What's more, maybe Grave Pact , Dictate of Erebos and maybe Butcher of Malakir . Oh, and in case you want to play the nastiest boardwipe ever: Torment of Hailfire .

Cool deck, it reminds me a lot of some old Alesha, Who Smiles at Death decks I used to play a lot. You currently have 2 Priest of Forgotten Gods - so maybe you could replace one of them with the staple Blood Artist ? I don't know your budget but cards like Ashnod's Altar , Dictate of Erebos , and- since you do have access to white- either Athreos could be worth looking into. There are also some solid budget options like Suture Priest and Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim if you decide to splash in white

Masterful Yeah I can't wait to play tomorrow! Honestly, the infinite combo's are always a last resort (they are mostly frowned upon in our playgroup if that is your ONLY source of winning and not even interacting w/ the board and trying to combo out as fast possible.. not fun lol). I found from play testing that it's fairly easy to win through just doming people with the life drainers (Blood Artist, etc). Also, having Dictate of Erebos or Grave Pact on the field really makes it tough on opponents if i'm just sacing creatures/tokens constantly.

I'll let ya know how it goes!!

I'm gonna put down a wall of text, so apologies in advance. Personally, I love Athreos, I run him in a commander deck myself. He relies a lot on draining your opponents through the attrition of your own creatures, as more often then not he is very hard to get rid of. Some more removal will help, but look at things like Abyssal Gatekeeper, Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, since even if you sac them to their own effect, there is a good chance of sending them back to your hand. Some wider discard effects such as Dark Deal can help, even though they're not attached to creatures being able to drop one in a large game with Waste Not out can net you a lot of benefits. Throwing in a few just good things like Rise of the Dark Realms, Dictate of Erebos, Grave Pact, all synergize with your deck, and can usually punish your opponents. Bone Miser is just another copy of Waste Not, The Haunt of Hightower seems to be on theme and I'd definitely bump up your mana rock number. In terms of a combo win, Sanguine Bond/Exquisite Blood just need a single loss of life somewhere, while Mindcrank/Bloodchief Ascension function well independently within your deck as well as combo off together. I have no idea what your budget is but I hope this helps.
