It That Betrays

Creature — Eldrazi

Annihilator 2 (Whenever this creature attacks, defending player sacrifices two permanents.)

Whenever an opponent sacrifices a nontoken permanent, put that card onto the battlefield under your control.

Ill-Gotten Gains to enable Animate Dead on It That Betrays enabled this deck to win its first game. March 26th memorably saw Lazav, Dimir Mastermind become a Priest of Titania, tapping for 11 and utilizing a Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy twice (borrowed thanks to our Roil Elemental) to cheat out a Vilis, Broker of Blood and a Geth, Lord of the Vault, only to enable the Duskmantle Guildmage and Mindcrank combo victory.

Land Equilibrium also feeds It That Betrays... Brutal.

Waterspout Elemental I found this jank digging thru my collection. Might be the perfect card for this backwards strategy. Going to test it this weekend.

Karn's Temporal Sundering a swiss army knife extra turn effect. I'm trying to avoid spells but I think this fills a role similar to Meditate. Might test this over the weekend.

Cool deck idea! Have you considered adding in a few Eldrazi such as It That Betrays or Void Winnower?

Thank you for the suggestions, Temporal Extortion was one card I did think of briefly before but not also Worst Fears. Mindslaver is one I already happen to play in modern alongside Academy Ruins in fact :). I’ll add them to the maybe board and see if they can find a place. Just one issue is finding room, and while there’s a few cards some may see as obvious picks to cut, I wanted to have a few such as It That Betrays and Phyrexian Obliterator likely stay as most of my edh decks have a few ‘pet’ cards like that to make them a bit different than every other version out there kimosabe. Oh and I will for sure check out your list soon for possibly more ideas!

You're mostly right here. It That Betrays will track the card to the library and attempt to return it to the battlefield from there, but it will not be able to. The reason is that the library is a hidden zone, so an effect can only find a card there if it searches or if it reveals the card first. See Rule 603.6 for more details.

Say I have Wheel of Sun and Moon in play and my opponent attacks me with It That Betrays so I sacrifice a Ajani's Pridemate. Due to Wheel of Sun and Moon’s replacement effect I put Ajani's Pridemate on the bottom of my library.

I assume It That Betrays would still track the pridemate since it did not change zones from the graveyard to the library but went straight to the library. However it feels a bit odd to have a creature recurred from the bottom of your library.

Assuming it works would it also apply if Ajani's Pridemate went to my hand instead (by some sort of replacement effect)?

Cards like It That Betrays also miss their attack triggers when first ninjitsu'd into play because the attack phase has already passed trigger stages. Doesn't matter after they are already in play, so you'll get the annihilator triggers from then on.

KibaAlpha If you have both on the battlefield I'm pretty sure that you can order the triggers so that you get the It That Betrays trigger before the creatures get exiled
