Disciple of Griselbrand

Creature — Human Cleric

1, Sacrifice a creature: you gain life equal to the sacrificed creature's toughness.

Spore Frog, Viscera Seer, Disciple of Griselbrand, and many others are considered staples for Meren as they turn her engine to stack experience. Spore frog is an mvp of the deck as a whole. If you have a self sac outlet, create armies with cards like Hornet Queen, and Mycoloth.

Dragon Throne of Tarkir, Overwhelming Stampede, and others like it are great win cons

Victimize, and Eternal Witness, or Golgari Findbroker is broken

One last thing, with self sac you can use horror creatures like Faceless Butcher in a way that permanently exiles the creature and is reusable in a pretty cheap manner. Basically you sac the creature before the removal effect happens, and the effect that gives it back happens before the creature is taken away leaving it permanently exiled

Dark Prophecy is solid, if you plan on taking advantage of the land untapping Font of Agonies is pretty good. i've been liking Dig Up as a casual tutor card because of the mechanic. i dont know how often you've gotten to play this deck but i feel like you need more sac outlets. Woe Strider, Carrion Feeder i've always liked Disciple of Griselbrand. that's all i got for suggestions. enjoy beledros i love my deck i made of him

After deliberating my above list of sacrifice outlets, I have removed several creatures; I removed Gnawing Zombie because Lampad of Death's Vigil is strictly better than it; I removed Gutless Ghoul because Disciple of Griselbrand is better than it in the majority of situations; I removed Skullport Merchant because it cannot sacrifice itself;, and I removed Soulreaper of Mogis and Spark Reaper because their abilities are to expensive to activate; thus, here is my new list of potential sacrifice outlets for my deck:

Which creature is the most appealing of these?

seshiro_of_the_orochi, that is an excellent card, but it requires that the stolen creature be sacrificed immediately, and it is also a one-time effect, and I am seeking a repeatable effect.

I think that I shall replace Angrath with Captivating Crew in my red/white/black deck, as that deck already has two sacrifice outlets in the form of Butcher of the Horde and Immersturm Predator, but, as for my red/green/black deck, I have actually found several cards that would work for it, which I shall compile into a list.

That is an impressive list of creatures that sacrifice other creatures, so I now need to decide which of them I shall put into my deck; does anyone here have any suggestions?

Disciple of Griselbrand would be awesome for those decks, but it does not allow me to steal a creature from an opponent, unfortunately.

Captivating Crew is also awesome, but it does not allow me to sacrifice a creature that I take from an opponent.

Mtg_Mega_Nerds Best way I can think of going infinite with Golgari land boi is having Aetherflux Reservoir , Disciple of Griselbrand , and Corpse Dance . The lowest life total you could start the combo at is 26 and still go infinite.

     ichibancho: Tough question to answer, as the impact of any one card is really dependent on what you're playing against. Suture Priest & War Priest of Thune are both pretty good options from my decklist. A few other options for consideration: Cabal Archon , Disciple of Griselbrand , Leonin Arbiter or Nullpriest of Oblivion . Depends if you want to go the more Staxy route or for more inherent synergies.

     I'm sure Geralf's Messenger + Luminous Broodmoth is a pretty fun and convincing way to win a game, but unless you're going to a new tournament with new players every week that shit's gonna get shut down by your playgroup really fast. The same reason I ended up cutting Liliana's Contract + Mirror Entity from this deck. Having Broodmoth out every game would be super! However to build the whole deck with that idea in mind would be foolish. Maybe that's just my own ideology about the game, but I really believe that powerful effects and cards should be nice bonuses when you draw them, not cornerstones to build a deck around. Especially when only one such card (Broodmoth) performs its function, what do you do when it's exiled?

     Tutors can mediate a bit of that, but you're playing a Commander that thrives on combining with other 'likeminded' cards. You don't need it to be a Cleric deck to win with Geralf's Messenger and could probably run a different General altogether that would better support your win condition (e.g. Teysa Karlov ).

     And you're welcome! Always happy to provide feedback and have a broader discussion! =)
