God-Pharaoh's Gift

God-Pharaoh's Gift


At the beginning of combat on your turn, you may exile a creature card from your graveyard. If you do, create a token that's a copy of that card, except it's a 4/4 black Zombie. It gains haste until end of turn.

God-Pharaoh's Gift Discussion

Have you thought of using God-Pharaoh's Gift over Reya Dawnbringer for the deck since it would provide more immediate results on the turn it comes out and costs less than Reya would. Although I could see the counterpoint of it exiling the creatures from your graveyard being a bad thing in a game that lasts long.

Awesome looking deck, I'm trying to do a similar strategy with a fine balance of token generation as well as lifegain. How efficient would you say the deck runs, especially in the card draw category? I often find myself a bit short, even though I seem to have plenty of sources. Outside of the reanimation effects of Mimic Vat and God-Pharaoh's Gift I'm not seeing too much token generation. Do you find this at all fragile in your play testing? I've been considering cards such as Luminarch Ascension, Resplendent Angel, God-Eternal Oketra, and Rampaging Baloths.

Here's a fun idea. Seance . You can populate the spirit token and have some graveyard shenanigans happening when trying to get those creatures back. God-Pharaoh's Gift may also be another interesting include. Ulvenwald Hydra for some land ramping and Blade of Selves , just because.

Not what to take out is a difference story. But a delightful set of ideas for you if you wanted to do a graveyard type shenanigans. Playing creatures that have no right to be tokens as tokens. Nothing like blowing a few items of interest with a terastodon twice in single combat step.

Madcap Experiment is one of those cards which I have as something cute and occasionally broken. Most people will let the first one resolve and I will occasionally get lucky with 2 or 3 damage or brain myself for 18 damage. In burn heavy match ups I will side board it out in a heartbeat but it can just allow for some really early fun plays.

I have considered Whip of Erebos as it does come down much earlier than God-Pharaoh's Gift and gives lifelink which is a bonus. However, it does require me spending a fair chunk of my mana each turn to make it work. I will consider using it as a 3rd or even 4th copy of reanimation once i can get my hands on some to play test.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Some suggestions:

Helm of the Host could be hilarious, same with God-Pharaoh's Gift

Bramble Sovereign is in the same category as the above two, but has a slight politics route to take.

True Conviction could be bonkers in a deck like this.

BLOODGUILT on Bad to the Bone - Torgaar, Life drainer

Love this idea and i have a card idea that might fit but you'll need more payoff's for it to be a good card. Wall of Blood it combos with Disciple of Bolas gaining back the life you paid and drawing you anywhere from 39 to 1 card. It also works with Repay in Kind setting everyone to one life if you choose. Very risky but hey, you're playing black so let's play. My favorite Wall of Blood trick is Rite of Consumption basically just blast somebody for 39 life and reset your life total. The ceiling goes up with Sanguine Bond or even Exquisite Blood . There are also a couple vampires with these effects on them but they are infinite combos and not everyone wants those in their deck. I was surprised to not see Grave Titan in the deck. He's a good body, makes food for Torgaar and has death touch. The last thing i would suggest is recursion, flicker effects or copy effects. Mimic Vat Helm of the Host God-Pharaoh's Gift some of the above suggestions also spells like Blood for Bones you can cast Torgaar and sac him to Blood for Bones and bring him back plus gain another creature from your graveyard like Disciple of Bolas to maximize value. What do you think?

I'm a big fan of Gate to the Afterlife and God-Pharaoh's Gift to act as pseudo-reanimation for your graveyard and turning just about anything into a populate-able token. A token generator I love to stick is Myr Battlesphere .
