Falkenrath Noble Discussion
2 days ago
I love random, obscure tribals. My input would be that both Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact are better than Butcher of Malakir . If you want more death triggers you can consider Blood Artist , Zulaport Cutthroat , Falkenrath Noble , Vindictive Vampire , ect, ect.

Heyo! I'm building a very similar deck to yours (it used to have a lot more eldrazi than it currently does, but there are still a few.) Carrion Court Just wanted to let you know that Ayara, First of Locthwain can only trigger on the ETBs of/sacrifice black creatures. She does not interact with your eldrazi scions/spawn/green eldrazi at all. You may know that, but without that interaction she seems underwhelming here. My list has a few options you might want to consider instead (some not exactly budget), but I don't think I know of any cards that perform her precise role well.
I'm not going to make any of those "official" suggestions as I don't know what your means are for acquiring cards.
Oathbreaker absolutely is a good kind of format for this deck! It's robust to a bunch of different enemy strategies and can adapt to situations. I love it!
I have yet to ever win meaningfully with Vraska's emblem. I've gotten it, but my opponents have already been already dead on board whenever I have. Good luck!

@Da_Zorret yeah it's a bit unfortunate, but it lowers the powerlevel of the competition so it isn't all too bad. Eldraine gives us Emry, Lurker of the Loch which is amazing for the deck. It also gives purpose to myrs played before a Heartless Summoning. Combined with Mishra's Bauble I think the deck could be pretty on point still. Syr Konrad, the Grim may also be decent as a 1 of. He's not quite as fast as old win-con Falkenrath Noble (they both come out turn 3 anyway), but he's better when the deck isn't going infinite and allows tempo alone to close out a game.

WUBRG87 Last thing I'd want is to sculpt your deck into something that doesn't feel like yours(!) - I love EDH's lack of homogeneity. Happy to give you my 2 cents with the direction I'd be thinking of from here though and with not too bad of a budget...
More of a sacrifice direction that isn't 'aristocrats'; add another altar ( Phyrexian Altar or Altar of Dementia ), maybe switch Dark Ritual for Culling the Weak - then you would have a good level of sac outlets to have some heavy hitters like Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Kokusho, the Evening Star replace Noble/Zula/Buccaneer. It's a bit contradictory adding sac outlets and removing aristocrats I know but I think the aristocrats make better use of volume (like tokens) and our boy Chainer is better off packing more value into a big recur-able punch.
If it were me, I'd be thinking:
- Falkenrath Noble
- Zulaport Cutthroat
- Glint-Horn Buccaneer
- Charmbreaker Devils
- Corpse Augur (switch for Disciple as another sac outlet)
- Scheming Symmetry (switch for Intent)
- Dark Ritual (switch for CtW)
- Burning Vengeance (Warstorm Surge and Flayer do it better, or drop Warstorm if you wanted to lower the overall CMC)
- 1 of Vampiric Rites , Cathartic Reunion or Underworld Connections (I think there's enough card selection that all 3 of these aren't necessary. Depends if you like the speed or reusability as to which)
- OK I'm stuck on the last one just now!! Maybe Stitcher's Supplier , but then I'd maybe want the Altar of Dementia instead... I'd probably end up saying Dreadbore because sorcery speed. That way Mausoleum Secrets -ing for your Bedevil is essentially your second instant speed spot removal for Planeswalkers
Also, to your point about the 'Compet-o-meter', I'd say the impact will be from the system rating Zula/Noble highly because of combo involvement in decks that revolve around them and the Buccaneer showing up in Nekusar, the Mindrazer lists, which tend to be pretty savage!, rather than necessarily your changes being significantly worse one-for-one. I actually really like Embodiment of Agonies in this, it's cheap and can be a massive beatstick pretty easily.

BS-T, hey yeah. Thank you! I sort of agree with the aristocratic creatures in here. it's not like creature sacrifice is this decks main focus, so im not getting optimal usage out of them. They're more for synergies with Mikaeus and a sac outlet and like you said: theyre effect hits all opponents.If i were to try to cut them, have any suggestions as to what to put it in place of them? i pulled Glint-Horn Buccaneer , Zulaport Cutthroat and Falkenrath Noble for Embodiment of Agonies , Diabolic Tutor and Desecrated Tomb and the competitive meter went down nearly 20%. not that the competitive meter is any reliable source to go on, but still. any ideas?

Hi, nice list!
If you're looking at cuts I am wondering if Falkenrath Noble , Zulaport Cutthroat & Glint-Horn Buccaneer do enough? They do have nice synergy but are you cycling through cards or recurring/sac-ing creatures with enough regularity for them to be impactful? Maybe there's a combo I missed?
At least the latter two are EACH opponent I suppose.
It'd be cool to hear what your testing and games have been like with them.
Outside of that, maybe Charmbreaker Devils ? I like them, don't get me wrong, and the effect is deece but it is one of those 6-drops and your Inst/Sorc count isn't high. I appreciate as a Necromancer myself though the temptation of saying "well, yes, but all the more reason I want them back to use again!".
