Dying to Serve

Enchantment

Whenever you discard one or more cards, create a tapped 2/2 black Zombie creature token. This ability triggers only once each turn.

Necrosis24 on DePietro and Channel?

5 months ago

This has made me realize I’ve been reading Ghost of Ramirez DePietro wrong this entire time. I thought his trigger was tied to the player that was dealt damage.

Well anyways my top pick for a partner would be Tormod, the Desecrator for all the graveyard shenanigans (i.e Living Death) and discard value.

Some high synergy cards would be:

Looking at channel tho there seems to be a higher density in temur so you would have access to better ramp and can do wheel/card draw affects. So perhaps Tana, the Bloodsower with:

  • Rielle, the Everwise

  • Brallin, Skyshark Rider  Flip
  • The Locust God + Wheels
  • Conspiracy Theorist
  • Mizzix's Mastery + Lier, Disciple of the Drowned
  • Glint-Horn Buccaneer
  • Surly Badgersaur
  • Otherwise you can go for purate tribal in izzet with Breeches, Brazen Plunderer or monoblue with Malcolm, Keen-Eyed Navigator

    that was pretty much my go to for this as well, glad that despite our randomly timed conversations we have generally the same ideas in mind, That being said mindstone will take place of the key. otherwise there are a couple extra cards and avenues i was wanting to take that I haven't been able to find the space for, again of course we'll debate over the suggestions/cuts but the things in mind that I have are as follows

    Geth's Grimoire & Words of Waste replace Maralen and Opposition Agent... ...beyond that im looking for more low to the ground and maintenance-y things such as Necrogen Mists, Sign in Blood/card draw(Ancient Craving-esqe) or even more abilities like Dying to Serve.

    Update:

    Cuts are as follows

    Minus:

    Wasteland why: Im running Strip Mine and crucible in black still only means one land so I only need one instance of this interaction

    K'rrik, Son of Ywagmoth why: better ways to "accelerate" that also aren't so lethal, also I have included better instances of smoothing the mana base in that this card in no longer relevant

    Whip of Erebos why: slow, often removed, underwhelming

    Gate to Phyrexia why: never saw use, took up space in hands to ofter or when on field saw little use

    Culling the Weak why: see k'rrik

    Hellish Rebuke why: underwhelming and generates little value

    Addtions:

    Jet Medallion why: Mana Acceleration

    Moonsilver Key Why: Curve Smoothing

    Innocent Blood Why: Efficient Removal

    Myriad Landscape why: Curve Smoothing

    Henrika Domnathi  Flip Why: great interaction with the deck as well as controls board well, offers an alternative to Wrankle or another instance of similar effects

    Dying to Serve Why: token generator that works well with Opposition and other global discard effects

    Future Thoughts:

    I'm looking to cut the Op Agent and Maralen Combo, i'm considering the Geth's Grimoire + Words of Waste combo in place of it. still looking for some instances of mana smoothing in black Burnished Hart comes to mind. Any other suggestions are welcome.
