Grateful Apparition

Creature — Spirit

Flying

Whenever this deals combat damage to a player or planeswalker, proliferate. (Choose any number of permanents and/or players, then give each another counter of each kind already there.)

Hi MilesHiles,

Thank you for checking out my list and the +1. Superfriends definitely isn't my flavor as i'm something of a Vorthos but it appears we may have some really interesting Planeswalker options coming in the near future that I may want to integrate into this deck (i'm still giddy over Ajani). As for your question about Urza's Incubator, back in Modern Horizons 2 Wotc "retconned" roughly 225 creatures to have the subtype "Phyrexian" in addition to their other types. If you want to read my thoughts on the subject you can click on my deck update titled A "New" Phyrexian Tribe. The update also has the full list of creatures that are now Phyrexians if you would like a reference guide.

To put things more succinctly - with the exception of Grateful Apparition, every creature in this deck has the "Phyrexian" subtype. So when I play Urza's Incubator, I name Phyrexian and that will apply to (almost) every creature in the deck - yes including Atraxa as well. Note - Grateful Apparition's inclusion is only temporary. I wait with baited breath on a new creature to be printed who is hopefully mono white, has Proliferate, and Infect on it's body with good stats - something of a Mono-white Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon if you will.

Thanks for suggesting Semblance Anvil. I have honestly never heard of this card until now. It's going to live rent free in my brain until I can think of a good deck to house it in. Thanks again for commenting and i'll definitely be checking out your Atraxa build as well.

Nice build. Grateful Apparition was made for this, and Lae'zel, Vlaakith's Champion would also be pretty great.

Ok, here's more.

Have you considered adding Prototype Portal? You can make extra copies of Grafted Skeleton or, if you choose to add them, any combination of Ancient Den, Power Depot and Treasure Vault. If you're concerned about losing the exiled card permanently, there's always Karn, the Great Creator.

The only colorless infect creature you're missing is Phyrexian Digester.

Another thing you may want to consider for your deck is proliferate to get poison counters on your opponent faster. This includes, but is not limited to, Contagion Engine, Grateful Apparition and Karn's Bastion.

Also, you may want to consider graveyard hate for your opponents. This includes, but is not limited to, Lion Sash and Rest in Peace.

I hope this helps. Thank you for reading me out. Happy Hunting!

xander11 Yeah I'd say Boon of Safety can probably be ditched also.

It might be worth considering Grateful Apparition and/or Thrummingbird too. They can make counters grow very quickly.

Probably some other stuff from Daxos the Returned's EDHREC page (if not necessarily Daxozzz himself)

Sterling0528, thanks for commenting on the page and sharing your thoughts. My logic for running Phyrexian Scriptures is between flavor and having a proliferation target in addition to a semi-one sided boardwipe. But to answer your question there is only one choice for what card I select to replace it: Toxic Deluge. Getting around Indestructible, and not having to wait on the saga to get to II to get your wrath effect already make the previously mentioned a superior choice. Also, the life loss can be somewhat mitigated by Atraxa, Praetors' Voice under the right circumstances. You also reminded me that there was a reprint that has flavor text from Papa Yawgmoth, so I decided to swap in that instance of Toxic Deluge in for Phyrexian Scriptures as it maintains my flavor requirements.

There are however some honorable mentions I thought of in case Deluge isn't to your taste:

  • Culling Ritual in a more competitive meta can do wonders. I've seen this spell ramp a player in excess of 6 or 7 mana on a good turn. Depending on the shifts in my own meta I'm considering running this spell as well.

  • Black Sun's Zenith is a card I find genuinely interesting, one that I experimented with in an earlier iteration of the deck that I think deserves a revisit.

What I would replace Priests of Norn with? No idea. Honestly it's just a placeholder for a better infect creature who will hopefully be printed in the near future. I'm really holding my breath for a for a mono-white color shifted Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon like creature. Given that infect is parasitic, the slot needs to be reserved for an infect creature. On that same note both Grateful Apparition and Spike Weaver are slated to be replaced when better options are printed. My wishlist would be a monowhite creature with infect and proliferate, and another new infect creature that doubles as a stax piece that breaks parity through the proliferation of counters (like Tangle Wire on a body). One can dream though.

What other changes would you make with the deck? Thanks for commenting.

I feel the proliferate is not quite as good as actually putting a +1/+1 counter as you have to have one in place to actually get the effect. I like it on Grateful Apparition, Huatli's Raptor, and Tezzeret's Gambit as it is an extra bonus on top of another main ability.

You also got to remember I play MTGO and things are usually like 10-50x cheaper! Karn's Bastion is only 0.03 cents and Gavony Township is only 0.02 cents via CardHoarder :) Some things are still tough to get in MTGO though like Esper Sentinel :( Don't get me wrong, I feel like player in person would be much more fun as I play casually and love to chat and commentate on the games but MTGO allows me to play around my toddler-centered-lifestyle and for a small fraction of the price of building a collection in paper. Pros and Cons...
