DemonDragonJ on Innistrad: Midnight Hunt and Crimson …

2 months ago

The new Teferi is awesome, and he certainly could be great in some of my decks, but I do not know if I can remove another card to make room for him, and he definitely will draw the ire of all other [players ion the game.

It is nice to finally have a card of Rem Karolus, who has been mentioned in the stories and flavor text, in previous sets, and I also like the new Ludevic, as well.

Sigardian savior is nice, but the fact that it must be cast in order for the ability to trigger is annoying; is WotC really that concerned about players abusing “enters-the-battlefield” abilities?

The fact that there is a Jack-o’-lantern on Innistrad implies that that plane likely has a legend of a man named Jack who tricked a demon or devil, as does our world.

With Kaya being on Innistrad, I wonder; does her magic of banishing spirits affect the natural system of magic on other planes? Does her power have limits? I cannot help but wonder if she is overpowered.

Sacred fire would have been nice if its flashback cost were not so high.

Given that Final Payment is an instant, is there any good reason for which rite of oblivion is a sorcery?

Spirits on Undying Persistence

8 months ago

Forgot my friend Erebos, Bleak-Hearted , definitely one of my fav's and fits your indestructible/god theme too. Phyrexian Arena is a good 6 power draw.

Last couple topics,

I made an assumption and grouped Draw above Damage, and Deathtouch above Token.

Deathtouch 16%, Control 16%, Damage/Life 15%, Recursion 8%, Token 6%, Draw 6%, Discard 2%, Ramp 2%, Land 29%

Further on Card Advantage (which includes draw):

I know why your doing it and the thought process behind it, but here's an alternative perspective.

Your cards like Blood Divination , Costly Plunder , Pitiless Pontiff , Bone Splinters , Final Payment , Severed Strands , Spark Harvest are usually paired with LTB effect (like your damage/life and afterlife abilities), more along lines of Grave Pact (Also Dictate of Erebos , Butcher of Malakir , Dark Prophecy , Nightmare Shepherd , Etc.) or Reveillark / Academy Rector types.

The issue is Blood Divination why not Necropotence ( Greed ) for CMC1 less, and no sacrifice, let's you refill your hand anytime, Grim Haruspex /Etc. Why Spark Harvest / Bone Splinters over Swords to Plowshares or Path to Exile or Mortify or even Bloodchief's Thirst / Generous Gift if your after planeswalkers.

So how are creatures getting into the graveyard, if your not sacrificing them along with other effects, a value engine!! Skullclamp is a necessity, Viscera Seer is strong, Phyrexian Altar (this card is cEDH level though), more things like Priest of Forgotten Gods & Ayara, First of Locthwain . Why sacrifice a deathtouch creature to LTB damage/life when you can Corpse Knight instead and get the value up front? Yahenni, Undying Partisan , Village Rites is ok because its CMC1 and Instant, you don't need tutor in battlecruiser/low (up to power 5), but cards like Diabolic Intent which also feed into things like Mausoleum Secrets are value. Ashnod's Altar , Doom Foretold , Razaketh, the Foulblooded , etc.

Key is value in / value out. Don't waste the value out just to enable your recursion. Value-in, Value-out, then recur. More Immortal Servitude (battlefield), less Soul Salvage (hand). Reanimate / Animate Dead (anyone's graveyards), Unburial Rites , Victimize , Agadeem's Awakening  Flip, Revival / Revenge , Command the Dreadhorde , Blood for Bones .

Luminous Broodmoth / Lurrus of the Dream-Den could be some cool interaction with the graveyard.

Topic Interaction:

Kinda touched on it, in previous. Control 16% is quite a bit, inline with power level. If you replace Ashen Rider , Bone Splinters , Final Payment , Severed Strands , Spark Harvest . Some should become the "sac outlets", like Skullclamp / Viscera Seer and some just better interactions (Instant speed whenever possible). Anguished Unmaking , Utter End , Swords to Plowshares , Merciless Eviction , Plaguecrafter / Demon's Disciple (Better Fleshbag Marauder unless your utilizing the Zombie part), Shriekmaw , Path to Exile , Generous Gift , Deadly Rollick , Dire Tactics , Hagra Mauling  Flip, Unmake there's lots.

Burglar Rat : If you like him! Elderfang Disciple , Yarok's Fenlurker , Rotting Rats (with Unearth).

If you want to jump on a teams chat or anything when you have some time happy to help, just discord chat me, hopefully something that helps you focus this deck to a 4-5

Xithon on Liesa, Shroud of A Cool And Catchy Pun

Hey, great job on building your first deck! You seem to have the principles of deck building down and it looks pretty powerful, so I'll just offer some simple card substitutions and why.

Instead of Solemn Offering I would use Crush Contraband because it is instant speed, often hits two targets, and can remove indestructible things. (Though no life gain, which I think is part of your theme.) It is more versatile more often.

Instead of Font of Agonies I would use Dawn of Hope because this card only triggers from four other cards in your deck besides the commander: Erebos, God of the Dead, Hatred, Trading Post, and Final Payment (losing life doesn't equal spending life) I think more utility and draw options are better since you already have a lot of good removal already.

Instead of Tribute to Hunger use Blood Artist because you have so much removal already, and this card doesn't let you target anything. Blood Artist does everything this deck wants to do already and it triggers from any creature's death not just your own.

Throw in a Bojuka Bog and I think you're golden.

Good luck! I hope this was helpful to you.

Hey, nice budget version of Teysa with Deathmantle and Altar.

Cards to consider adding:

Any game when you have Skullclamp on the battlefield is going to be a better game than if you don't. Adding a few budget tutors that can get Clamp or one of your combo artifacts can be helpful.

Cards to consider cutting:

Good luck with your deck.

Thanks for the feedback Swilliam. I didn't know about Pitiless Pontiff or Qarsi Sadist, good suggestions. I agree about needing another sac outlet. I was considering Priest of Forgotten Gods but I think she might be too fragile to be useful in Pioneer. Should I swap out Corpse Knight for one of them?

I was also looking at Final Payment as removal, but I thought Fatal Push would be OK assuming that this deck would amp it up a lot of the time.

I think the 1 drops might need to be looked at as well, Serrated Scorpion might be a better fit here than Bloodsoaked Champion with it's ETB.

Hey, cool deck. +1 from me. I'd just mostly suggest adding more sacrifice outlets. Pitiless Pontiff and Qarsi Sadist are pretty good. Qarsi Sadist also has an enter the battlefield trigger if that helps. Final Payment is also really great removal for this deck.

Swilliam on Life, Death, and Zombies

So I've done a little more testing and I found a couple of potentially useful cards for you. Final Payment is removal without any drawbacks if you sacrifice Stitcher's Supplier and you can use it to fill your graveyard. Paying five life is not the worst either depending on how much you can gain off of Wayward Servant. Mire Triton might be negligible considering the copies of Liliana, but for those on a budget it could have a home. In addition, including these could possibly help make room for cards that boost all of you zombies considering the large amount you can get from Diregraf Colossus. I probably jumped the gun a little bit with recommending the Rotting Regisaur earlier, but it inspired me to test out a green/black zombies deck with Lotleth Troll, Slitherhead, Dread Wanderer, etc. It seemed to work out alright.
