Neotrup on Erebos and Devotion

The Gods do have a bit of on odd edge case when your devotion is 4. Since your devotion is five once Erebos, Bleak-Hearted is on the battlefield, it will trigger enter the battlefield effects like Guardian Project (denoted by the words "when" or "whenever"), but won't be entering as a creature so it will ignore replacement effects like Essence of the Wild.

If I cast Erebos, Bleak-Hearted with Guardian Project in play and my devotion to black is less than five, do I draw a card?

Note: This is commander so I don't have another Erebos in play.

I understand the reasoning behind cards like Corrupted Conviction, but to me the bonus is not more than the cost. Drawing two off of one card, effectively going up 1 card in hand one time per include, is simply not enough to warrant a spot, even if it helps you proliferate. A card like Erebos, Bleak-Hearted lets you sacrifice your tokens and draw off of them, but does so more than once as a single card, and also could offer removal depending on the board state. Shadowheart, Dark Justiciar similarly has a higher ceiling because it's one card that can draw several more, and more than once, though I do understand these are not phyrexians and so somewhat less synergistic in that sense (but the instants/sorceries aren't phyrexian either, so I think the point is mute). I think cards like Ashnod's Altar and Krark-Clan Ironworks are incredibly synergistic here, as they provide the mana to activate your tokens while potentially also triggering the proliferate, I did not notice they were not in but would recommend them as well.

While it's in your deck, Erebos, Bleak-Hearted is a creature and can be found with Birthing Pod. Once it's on the field, if you your devotion is below five, it will not be a creature.

If I’m using Birthing Pod to tutor for a four drop creature and my devotion to black is less than five, can I grab Erebos, Bleak-Hearted?

multimedia on Cards that buff zombie tribal?

Zombie Master and Filth don't buff, but instead they can make your Zombies unblockable. Noxious Ghoul can wreck your opponent's creatures since it triggers each time a Zombie token is created. This effect is essentially giving your Zombies evasion since it will clear away opponent blockers.

Zombies can have an advantage using your life as a resource for repeatable draw. Cryptbreaker, Graveborn Muse, Undead Augur is Zombie tribal draw using life. Bolas's Citadel is powerful black card that uses your life which can also be a sac outlet for 10 Zombie tokens.

Augur/Dark Prophecy/Erebos, Bleak-Hearted + Blood Artist/Bastion of Remembrance/Zulaport Cutthroat pairing these cards can be a draw engine with Zombie tokens.

Plague Belcher, Vengeful Dead are Zombie tribal aristocrats and with Zombie tokens they pair well with a free activation sac outlet such as Carrion Feeder, Phyrexian Altar, Viscera Seer, Blasting Station, Ashnod's Altar.

Gravecrawler is Zombie tribal repeatable sac fodder for Gisa. Skullclamp is nice draw with tokens, when you're sacing creatures and with Gravecrawler.
