DemonDragonJ on Which Card(s) Should Replace the …

11 hours ago

I used to have copies of The Immortal Sun in most of my EDH decks, but I have been replacing those copies with cards that better suit the themes of those decks, so I wish to ask for advice for specific decks.

First, I am wondering about my Sen Triplets EDH deck; that deck is a very controlling deck, so one card that I am considering is Myrel, Shield of Argive, since she is a more powerful version of Grand Abolisher, although I certainly would be willing to hear other suggestions, as well. I was also considering replacing the sun with Esper Sentinel, but I am not certain if I actually need that card in that deck, with all the other sources of card advantage that that deck has.

Second, I am seeking a replacement for the sun in my Teneb, the Harvester EDH deck, but this shall be a more challenging replacement, as there are numerous cards that would work well with that deck. My first choice was Karador, Ghost Chieftain, as this is the only deck in which he would fit, and, with his inherent cost-reducing ability, he would usually cost less then 8 mana to summon, but, as good as he is, he is merely a 3/4 that allows me to cast a creature spell from my graveyard once per turn. I then considered Sepulchral Primordial, but I do not wish to raise the mana curve of this deck, and that creature is only a 5/4 for seven mana. I also am considering either Sun Titan or Angel of Indemnity, as they clearly work with the theme of this deck, but the restrictions on their abilities may limit their utility in this deck, although the encore ability of the angel is nice, as I can sacrifice the tokens that it generates before they sacrifice themselves. Then, I am considering Grave Titan, since it can easily send creatures to my opponents' graveyards, for me to steal, as well as generating tokens for me to sacrifice, so I have numerous options for that deck.

What does everyone else say about this? What cards should I use to replace The Immortal Sun in my decks?

I have replaced The Immortal Sun with Grave Titan, since the titan better fits the theme of this deck, as it is able to both destroy my opponents' creature and also provide me with more creatures to sacrifice, myself.

@Basshunter: Thanks for the input. There are a few things I feel the need to justify keeping in though.

The primary reason I have Paragon of Open Graves and Hero's Blade is so I can easily buff up Sarevok, causing his ability to drain extra life when it triggers. Death-Priest of Myrkul is somewhat expensive, but when he's out, I just got to pay a mana at the end of each turn to ensure I maintain a consistent fuel supply for Cultist (and a lot of my token generation is zombies anyway so... bigger dead dudes.). Similar vein, Palace Siege allows me to sac something to Cultist then play it again on the same turn, which goes real good with Gray Merchant of Asphodel for life gain and Doomed Dissenter for a free Zombie token, if I just don't sac Gravecrawler to play it again cause it cheap.

Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon and Squelching Leeches are mostly there to be big beefy bois if I need them, but yeah, of the suggestions you've made, I'd probably swap them for Black Market Connections and Priest of Forgotten Gods to net me some more card draw. Ophiomancer, Grave Titan and Phyrexian Altar are also on my radar.

Not a fan of Skullclamp, at least in this deck. I'd need either altars or Yahenni, Undying Partisan out to actually get consistent value out of it, otherwise I'd need to pay for another sac outlet.

its a really nice deck idea, but in my opinion, you got

  1. too much stuff in your deck that doesnt fit to the theme like Squelching Leeches, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, Paragon of Open Graves, Infernal Scarring, Grasping Shadows  Flip, Hero's Blade and maybe some others..

  2. you are really high cmc for a sac-deck. maybe upgrade to a lower cmc and faster deck..i.e. change Diabolic Tutor with Diabolic Intent, Death-Priest of Myrkul, Stir the Sands or Palace Siege is expensive too - and they dont even fit very well to the theme. You can change your reanimation-spells to low cmc like Reanimate or Animate Dead aswell

  3. To get rid of the fuel-problem, get some cards like Black Market Connections (awesome here), Blight Mound, Ophiomancer, Grave Titan ...

  4. Upgrade sac-outlets: Phyrexian Altar, Priest of Forgotten Gods, Viscera Seer, Skullclamp

So all together you should fit the theme more, search for cheaper cmc cards that do the same and get some more token-stuff

Out: Grave Titan, Heliod, God of the Sun

In: Firemane Commando, Anim Pakal, Thousandth Moon

Bringing down the curve of the deck a little, since Zombie Boy doesn't have a big impact at the top end of my curve.

I've also noticed the ability to flood the board with tokens can help keep me safe from crack backs, so I don't need the Vigilance God's help as much, especially considering it has no attack trigger either.

I don't play cEDH/near that level, only semi-competitive so keep that in mind as I suggest below....

Grave Titan? - Combo with ashnod + nim deathmantle. Maybe swap for Kokusho?

I think dash hopes is prime for cutting, especially in your meta. Who wouldn't pay 5 life to keep their spell? I get that you have a lifeloss theme going but unless their lifetotal is dangerously low, I don't see it's impact. How has it been treating you? Perhaps you would be better served by Opposition Agent - Everyone tutors in EDH, especially cEDH. Fetchlands, specific and omni tutors, creature tutors, artifacts, etc....

Regarding dealing with grave hate by removing artifacts, don't most players use soul-guide lantern, nihil spell bomb or other cheap grave hate artifacts that can just be activated in response to removal?

Praetor's Grasp? - Can steal opposing combo pieces?

Out: Elder Brain, Hammer of Purphoros, Drakuseth, Maw of Flames

In: Hellrider, Grave Titan, Revenge of Ravens

Taking out slow, high cost creatures that can be good if left to sit, but otherwise waste my entire turn doing nothing.

Putting in more attack trigger things (you know, the deck theme).

At this point, my best thought is to keep playtesting the deck, seeing what works, what might not be worth it, and tweak it to your particular tastes.

Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon is worth testing alongside your proliferate effects, but with a note that if you never get an infect win, it won't be pulling its weight. Grave Titan and Razaketh, the Foulblooded are very solid options.
