Helm of Possession Discussion

carpecanum on Can Anyone Recommend a Semi-Competitive …

By theft you mean stealing creatures? Easiest for me is Arcbound creatures (that ETB with counters) and Helm of Possession .

If you steal them with temporary sorceries and they have a counter you can use any sac outlet (my favorite is Dracoplasm )

Thalakos Deceiver is also amazing. Attack the guy who gives you a dethrone counter then sac the Deciever and take a creature from any player.

Helm of Possession , sac a token, steal a creature then sac that with your boss

Most Elf Lords only buff the elves YOU control so Sylvan Offering can give you a bunch of elves and the opponent you gift elves to doesn't get the benefits (usually, depends on the deck. Don't give em to a guy playing Ashnod's Altar ...)

If you want a theme you could go for Shaman Tribal. There are tons, with many useful abilities. Throw in a Thornbite Staff . You could go with counters and get a few Proliferate cards (you can proliferate experience counters). You could go Infect if you hate people.

I think you may need something to protect your boss. Meren brings back everything except Meren. Aspect of Mongoose , Blessing of Leeches , any hexproof etc.

Grothama, All-Devouring comes in for only 5 CMC and could be fun.

Helm of Possession would definitely be funny with Meren.

Good deck my only recommendation would be to add more sacrifice outlets. Here are some possible ideas Altar of Dementia , Helm of Possession , Sadistic Hypnotist , Fallen Ideal , Fallen Angel , Malevolent Awakening , Attrition , Phyrexian Plaguelord , Stronghold Assassin , Hell's Caretaker , Carrion Feeder , Carnage Altar , Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter , Flesh-Eater Imp , aaaannnnnnd if you haven’t fallen asleep yet Skullclamp would go great in this deck.

You can mark your commander by typing CMDR after it when you edit.

Sylvan Offering could give you a huge hit with your boss

Right now it looks like there is nothing to protect your boss from removal. I like Aspect of Mongoose

Helm of Possession could be fun. Sac an elf to GY, steal a creature, Altar of Dementia the creature, repeat.

MagicMarc oh man Nantuko Husk is old school. I remember doing nutty shenanigans with both that and Mogg Fanatic back before the combat damage rules change.

Back in the days of "tuck" I remember seeing that card a decent amount too. Sac outlets like Goblin Bombardment and Helm of Possession saw a lot more play because of tuck.

Tempt with Vengeance, Sylvan Offering for sac fodder.

I would ditch 2 lands for 2 mana rocks, maybe Spinning Wheel and Worn Powerstone.

Helm of Possession or Mogis, God of Slaughter for more aggressive saccing.

Most of my suggestions are more pricey than I usually like to make. To go cheap, maybe look at golgari "straight to the battlefield from graveyard" cards for cheating out eldrazi.

Where's Grand Coliseum?

I'd also advise Sun Droplet and Knight-Captain of Eos.

Helm of Possession could be nice, too.

Evangel of Heliod for even more tokens?
