Anthon, False Hero

Legendary Creature - Human

~ enters the battlefield with 3 Follower Counters. If ~ would lose all Follower Counters, sacrifice all creatures you control.

Add a Follower Counter to ~: You gain 3 life.

Take two Follower Counters from ~: Sacrifice a creature. Then place target creature card from your graveyard onto the battlefield.

Take seven Follower Counters off of ~: You gain 5 life and draw two cards. Then exile all nonland permanents.


Kind of along the lines of False Prophet. Meant to be like he's pretending to be a planeswalker, hence the "Follower Counters." Wildcard.

SwiftDeath, Thanks for the comment! And hopefully it brought some nostalgia. I would agree that a sac outlet is insanely important in any graveyard based deck. False Prophet seems to risky for my blood. If he is on the battlefield and I don't have any immediate free way of sacrificing him, then I've done more harm to me then my opponent. As for Oblivion Stone, that does seem like a great combo, I will consider it.

This is very reminiscent of my Karador deck back when I first built mine. A lot of cards have been released since then but it shares a lot of similarities. One thing that Karador decks need is self sacrifice. It allows you to dodge exile removal from your opponents to instead fill the grave with more creatures. Nothing will annoy your opponent more then having to use their Swords on a creature they know will not get exiled. A card that I used with this in mind and to great effect was False Prophet. I can sac all my creatures then sac false prophet. Remove from game all my opponents creatures then cast something like Living Death and get them all back. I could also use my commander or a number of different methods. My deck was more of an attrition deck. I didn't have to play big creatures, except the ones that mattered, or try to combo as early as possible. I only had to outlast my opponent. If I did that they could never recover faster than me. Also Oblivion Stone is a disgusting lock with Sun Titan. It blows up your board too but again you should be able to recover faster than other players.

For anyone who may wonder about the answer, False Prophet must go to the graveyard from the battlefield for its ability to trigger. It will not trigger if the Prophet is put into the graveyard from any other zone, including the stack.

Hi everyone,

I'm curious to know if False Prophet's ability still happens even if he was countered on the stack and then went to the graveyard?

Thanks a ton!

Thanks for your feedback Grind! The idea about False Prophet is to have a mass exile option when being in disadvantage in terms of creatures. I would play him either when having no creatures on the battlefield or when having Viscera Seer (or another card that allows me to sacrifice creatures) in play to sacrifice all of my own creatures in response to False Prophet dying. Like this I still get the trigger effects and either my creatures back to hand or 3 damage per creature.

Cool deck!!
I am not sure about False Prophet as it boardwipes but you dont get advantage of keeping your commander and getting death triggers. I would lean toward your maybeboard cards wrath of god / day of judgement. And if you want to run exile removal then Swords to Plowshares is always great. Just my 0.02

Epicurus on Cleverly Named Graveyard Deck

Magus of the Disk is a definite maybe. As for the others, good cards one and all, but not for this deck. False Prophet has little control (I would want to be able to activate such an effect on my own terms, not at the whim of someone's lightning bolt). Plus, he exiles, and I wouldn't be able to bring them back. That's why I begrudgingly did not include Food Chain. Cataclysmic Gearhulk and Massacre Girl cost one mana more than I'd like to spend on such an effect (if I need to board wipe, it's because an opponent went wide early).

Targeted removal might work well, but if I used it, there are far better options in black or Golgari than white. Path to Exile is great in Stax or Death & Taxes - where the land bump does them no good - or mono-white or Sylesnia, where there's no red, black or blue for better targetted removal. Having said this, I'm a huge fan of Swords to Plowshares, but not, I don't think, for this deck.

As for the combo, it looks amazing. However, I forgot to mention at the beginning that I don't play combo decks. If either of the cards were something that I thought would fit this deck better than anything that's already there, I'd include either or both and potentially have the combo as a last resort game ender when it goes too long. But I have plenty of recursion, some of which is cheaper. So while I respect the competitive quality of the combo suggestion, I respectfully decline.

You are absolutely right about the rats. They're honestly in there because they're 2 CMC and unearth. They really do me no real good. I'm definitely not going for a discard theme here. I do, however, need some (probably more than I have, with or without the rats) CMC 2 or less creatures that fit into the reanimator theme. For that matter, I probably don't need Spore Frog either, but cutting it has the same problem.
