Hallowed Spiritkeeper

Creature — Avatar


When this dies, create X 1/1 white Spirit creature tokens with flying, where X is the number of creature cards in your graveyard. (Dying is being put into the graveyard from the battlefield.)

jelwell Bartolome del Presidio is a good sac outlet, but we don't really need any more, and he's worse than any of our current ones. We already have a good amount of sacrifice plus lots of tutors to make sure we have them. We also only need one on board and multiples have no value. I think his real value is as a commander honestly. Always having access to a 2-mana sac outlet that gets super big like Carrion Feeder is an insanely strong utility.

Calum13395 I would say Hallowed Spiritkeeper is stronger overall because it can make a ton of tokens the turn it comes down, making it much better mid-lategame. Elenda's Hierophant seems better than Ministrant of Obligation though and could be in a future version of the deck if I want more 3-mana death triggers. I don't think it'll ever replace spiritkeeper though.

What are your thoughts on Elenda's Hierophant? It's arguably an upgrade on Hallowed Spiritkeeper, given the large quantities of life gain in the deck.

Foster_I_Am The broodmoth interaction isn't a consistent reason to run emissary, I meant it as more of a fun fact haha. Hallowed Spiritkeeper is good because its ceiling is high, but compared to other fodder pieces, its floor is low. In comparison, Sultai Emissary has a medium floor and ceiling. Crawling Chorus will definitely have a place instead of Ministrant of Obligation, but I'm still considering replacing emissary with spiritkeeper.

Foster_I_Amkirbysan Crawling Chorus is definitely a great new addition, even though it's a bit boring. Currently, I'm torn on replacing either sultai emissary, carrier thrall, or ministrant. Here's a breakdown of my thoughts:

Sultai Emissary

  • A manifest is not a token, so it triggers all our non-token death triggers, including Grim Haruspex, Midnight Reaper, Pawn of Ulamog, and Luminous Broodmoth. Not that it comes up super often, but manifests have a particularly interesting interaction with broodmoth. If any manifested permanent dies, like a land, it will come back with a flying counter.
  • We can flip over the permanent if it's a creature, meaning manifested creatures are not only fodder but card draw. Because we have 35 creatures, Emissary will effectively draw us a card one third of the time.
  • The downside is that he's 2 mana for a fodder creature, and the manifest doesn't die to Skullclamp.

Carrier Thrall

  • Tokens can sac themselves and provide mana. He effectively pays for himself with Teysa out.
  • Both sides die to Skullclamp.
  • Unfortunately 2 mana to play.

Ministrant of Obligation

  • With Teysa out, has 5 bodies for one instead of 3.
  • 3 mana is even more unfortunate than 2.

Currently, I'm considering ministrant more heavily because of how inflexible 3 mana is. I was already thinking of replacing him for Hallowed Spiritkeeper because of more potential upside, so this might be the right time to replace.

Botanical Plaza, Windbrisk Heights, Unbreakable Formation.


Boss's Chauffeur, Hallowed Spiritkeeper, Timely Ward.

This is just to add more lands and reduce the mana curve of the deck.

Just so you know, the Reyhan/Ozolith combo doesn't work how you want it to. Young Wolf still had a counter on it when it died and Undying will not trigger.

As far as combos not mentioned go:

Ashnod's Altar + Caller of the Claw + Tayam, Luminous Enigma is infinite activations if you had two creatures die this turn.

Ashnod's Altar + Hallowed Spiritkeeper + Tayam, Luminous Enigma is infinite activations if you have two two creatures in the graveyard.

Ashnod's Altar + Promise of Bunrei + Tayam, Luminous Enigma is infinite activations.

I recommend you consider adding Elemental Bond , Nihil Spellbomb , Wall of Roots , & Hallowed Spiritkeeper .

For Elemental Bond , of your 34 creatures, half of them (17) have power 3 or greater and your deck has 10 methods of putting a creature of such power onto the battlefield or blinking it. Even your Terrastodon could destroy some of your own permanents should you be in dire need of giving yourself a 3/3 to proc Elemental Bond.

For Nihil Spellbomb , at worst it's 2 mana to draw a card, but you know how powerful exiling a graveyard is.

For Wall of Roots , with recursion like yours, this is essentially just a mana rock on a stick that your sac outlets can abuse.

For Hallowed Spiritkeeper , your recursion can help create a massive army that would benefit from effects in your deck such as Finale of Devastation & Overwhelming Stampede .
