Dreadhorde Invasion


At the beginning of your upkeep, you lose 1 life and amass 1. (Put a +1/+1 counter on an Army you control. If you don't control one, create a 0/0 black Zombie Army creature token first.)

Whenever a Zombie token you control with power 6 or greater attacks, it gains lifelink until end of turn.

I think your deck could benefit from creating more tokens to sac to grimgrin. Cards like Bitterblossom and Dreadhorde Invasion and Jadar, Ghoulcaller of Nephalia can give you that free sac each turn.

looks fun!

Yay, darkness. Here are some thoughts that might synergize with your deck:

Tainted Remedy was in because a deck like this wins after a cascade of opponent life loss triggers. This can be easily disrupted by lifegain on the opponents side. However, y'all are correct in that it doesn't advance my game plan. Chop chop.

Bloodchief Ascension is a pet card. It is also a card that has won me numerous games on its own. It would be easy enough to get 3 counters with Kambal's trigger but again, not directly tied to tokens. Good suggestion albeit a painful one.

Halo Fountain just seemed like a fun and wierd alt-win con but your right that it is slow. It also requires me to have tapped creatures.

Going to take a closer look at the aristocrats support. I cut a lot of the sac outlets earlier which was a good observation. Nadier's Nightblade and Mirkwood Bats will definitely stay but a lot of the others can go. Also, Ophiomancer and Dreadhorde Invasion don't work at the level they should without a sac outlet on the board.

Not sure about Battle Angels of Tyr just yet, since just attacking creates token copies of himself. But he'll be close to the cut list.

Part of the reasoning on the number of board wipes was the number of indestructible options for Kambal. Will cut at least one board wipe tonight.

Refering to Basshunter's commnent, I haven't put the final mana base in just yet but Forbidden Orchard will be in there. Mana bases tend to only take me 5 minutes to build. I have some effects that give tokens to my opponents but I'm leaning more heavily into Kambal's second ability. I've generally been looking at consistent token generation instead of one off effects aimed at my opponents. However, Curse of Disturbance will get another look.

Thank you for all of the comments. It definetly gets me much further to completion.

No Reassembling Skeleton? What about something like Sengir Autocrat, make a bunch of bodies to generate maximum triggers? Gixian Puppeteer seems like a good fit. I feel like Dreadhorde Invasion might be good with your Commander, as long as you sacrifice the token you get a fresh one on your upkeep, this is a relatively affordable alternative to Bitterblossom. If you like the Underworld Dreams effect, perhaps Fate Unraveler, though it's not exactly budget at this point and will surely go down in price if it sees reprint, so maybe keep an eye on it? I feel like your deck would benefit from anything that prevents life gain, stuff like Grima Wormtongue and/or Knight of Dusk's Shadow might keep opponents from running away from your damage/life loss effects, and Plague Drone actually punishes opponents for trying to gain life.

This deck seems very .... confused. On one hand you have swamp synergies, on the other sacrifice synergies, and then you have weird cards like Elder Brain that don't fit into either. I'd suggest picking one of the two theme's and sticking to it.

Cards I would suggest cutting:

Withercrown (just not a good card)

Crypt Incursion (Too situational, its going to be dead a lot of the time)

Xathrid Gorgon (Too slow)

Visara the Dreadful (Removal magnet + too slow)

Consume Spirit (There are better mana sinks than this)

Corrupt (Needs too many swamps to be worth the mana)

Liliana's Shade (Also just not a good card)

Elder Brain (just a weird card in general and too inconsistent)

Cards I would suggest adding:

Abhorrent Overlord (Makes a buch of creatures for your sacrifice triggers)

Pontiff of Blight, Thrull Parasite, Basilica Screecher (More extort cards that synergize very well with K'rrik)

Exsanguinate (Better mana sink than consume spirit)

Nirkana Revenant (Another mana doubler for swamps)

Vein Ripper (Very good for this kind of deck, but it just came out and is currently pricey so I'd wait to buy this one)

Bitterblossom, Dreadhorde Invasion (make a creature every turn for your sacrifice outlets)

Viscera Seer the classic free sacrifice outlet. Also see Woe Strider

Ayara, First of Locthwain (Free creature with K'rrik out and pings opponents every time a black creature enters which usually happens a lot with sac decks)

Dreadhorde Invasion and Felidar Retreat could both be good sources for creature tokens to sacrifice to Thalia & Gitrog. Felidar Retreat is especially decent given T&GM's extra Landfall ability. If you would like another token creator, Scute Swarm is right at home with some extra land drops, and can swarm someone or be another source of tokens to sacrifice.

You could also enchant yourself with Curse of the Restless Dead and use it as another source of tokens off your extra land drops.

pedroedmarcos on How amass orcs works if …

Hey there.

So, Lets say I'll amass orcs with Orcish Bowmasters but I already have an army token created by Dreadhorde Invasion. Will my army token get more tokens or will I create another token thats an orc?
