Gate to the Afterlife

Artifact

Whenever a nontoken creature you control dies, you gain 1 life. Then you may draw a card. If you do, discard a card.

, , Sacrifice Gate to the Afterlife: Search your graveyard, hand, and/or library for a card named God-Pharaoh's Gift and put it onto the battlefield. If you search your library this way, shuffle it. Activate this ability only if there are six or more creature cards in your graveyard.

No problem and I meant to say Gate to the Afterlife is not card advantage. Take that one out too

Also I think seshiro_of_the_orochi meant to say Mentor of the Meek

  • Welcoming Vampire = good draw.
  • Tocasia's Welcome = good draw.
  • Esper Sentinel = grade A+ draw.
  • Loran of the Third Path doubles as removal so it good. It good card draw to at the expense of giving your opponents a card too (not good).
  • Staff of Compleation paying 4 life for a card is gonna hurt really bad. After 2 activations, the 3rd it's a total 12 life lost. 26% of your starting life total.
  • Relic Vial this seems like it's a good fit for the cmdr but if you want value the turn your cmdr comes down you'll need 2 more mana to activate it. This is slow. Beside your cmdr you'll need other good targets to sac. This one's out for me too.
  • Endless Atlas is at best average.
  • Gate to the Afterlife - this is the card advantage.

I have a Ao, the Dawn Sky deck I am working on and I was wondering if there are any permanent spells that draws me more the one card for 4 or less. The deck has a large amount of artifact and I will be sacrificing Ao few times through the game. So far I have Welcoming Vampire, Tocasia's Welcome, Staff of Compleation, Relic Vial, Loran of the Third Path, Gate to the Afterlife, Endless Atlas and Esper Sentinel.

TeyoSelflessProtector thanks for stopping by! Reconnaissance is good tech, need to get my hands on a copy. Think that could replace the Gate to the Afterlife since it's not really advancing the reanimator strategy.

Can I talk you into going B/R? Trash for Treasure lets you run Sundering Titan and Inkwell Leviathan alongside God-Pharaoh's Gift/Gate to the Afterlife. The draw discard in red is also nice as a budget tutor alternative, letting you spend on lands that are useful elsewhere.

A heavier focus on artifacts lets you minimise coloured mana costs, with early turns mostly just being colourless (or hybrid). In addition you can ram in the cheap artifact taplands and landcycler to more reliably stock yard/trigger cook.

I don't know what your budget is, but this seems like an ideal deck to be running some sort of fetchlands, even the common variants. They let you recur Bloodghast an additional time and even grant extra damage from Mayhem Devil . Hofri Ghostforge and Rekindling Phoenix feel quite slow relative to the power of their effect. It also seems a shame not to have as many black creatures available to sacrifice as possible for the sake of Teysa, Orzhov Scion , although I could also see Pawn of Ulamog fulfilling a similar role. Maybe something like Gutterbones , Reassembling Skeleton , or a combo of Relentless Dead and Gravecrawler could prove useful. There's also Grim Haruspex as another way to refuel or Gate to the Afterlife if pitching cards is important.

I'm not sure how exactly Quin plays yet, but I'm trying to come up with something with him too so I'll throw some cards I thought were interesting at you. Sentinel's Eyes seems decent, with Quin out it gives you two 3/2s for , which is pretty good. Battle Screech is just a generally strong tokens card so it fits with the token support, but also gives you a 3/2 (for free!). Same with Increasing Devotion , although thats definitely a lower power level just because of the mana cost. Prismatic Strands / Rally the Peasants are both also pretty strong cards that also will just throw in a 3/2 with Quin.

You have quite a few humans, so maybe throw in Bruna, the Fading Light  Flip, and if you want to meld, Gisela, the Broken Blade ? Bruna's solid on her own, but I might just be biased because I love meld. Angel of Glory's Rise too, depending on how many humans you end up with. You could also play things like Resurrection and Breath of Life , or even Gate to the Afterlife / God-Pharaoh's Gift . Angelic Renewal goes infinite with Sun Titan and a sac outlet, which you should probably have at least one more of. Ashnod's Altar is the go too, but I think its pretty expensive nowadays, so maybe Blasting Station , Dark-Dweller Oracle , or Grafted Exoskeleton

A bunch of the phoenixes seem decent, since they always return. I think the best ones would be Flamewake Phoenix , Rekindling Phoenix , and Skyfire Phoenix . Flamewake seems great since with Quin your spirits activate ferocious, the others I'd be more skeptical about.

Well I hope that's at least somewhat helpful lol
