DemonDragonJ on Should I Keep Angrath in …

3 months ago

After deliberating my above list of sacrifice outlets, I have removed several creatures; I removed Gnawing Zombie because Lampad of Death's Vigil is strictly better than it; I removed Gutless Ghoul because Disciple of Griselbrand is better than it in the majority of situations; I removed Skullport Merchant because it cannot sacrifice itself;, and I removed Soulreaper of Mogis and Spark Reaper because their abilities are to expensive to activate; thus, here is my new list of potential sacrifice outlets for my deck:

Which creature is the most appealing of these?

seshiro_of_the_orochi, that is an excellent card, but it requires that the stolen creature be sacrificed immediately, and it is also a one-time effect, and I am seeking a repeatable effect.

I think that I shall replace Angrath with Captivating Crew in my red/white/black deck, as that deck already has two sacrifice outlets in the form of Butcher of the Horde and Immersturm Predator, but, as for my red/green/black deck, I have actually found several cards that would work for it, which I shall compile into a list.

That is an impressive list of creatures that sacrifice other creatures, so I now need to decide which of them I shall put into my deck; does anyone here have any suggestions?

RambIe on Thrasios/Tymna vs Kenrith

Sorry, enpc it's still a Kenny combo :)

Lampad of Death's Vigil +Great Whale + Kenrith, the Returned King ability also works
My biggest argument is that Thrasios can still be in deck as well as any other options that could be considered.

Ignore the double post, first one only posted partially and would not let me edit.

RambIe: That was one of the reasons I really liked Kenrith, since he acted as not only an infinite mana sink but also a win condition is his own right (as well as being a WUBRG enabler).

SynergyBuild: having the additional access to red was always the main allure of Kenrith for me. The fact that he has 4 super relevant abilites (and one ok ability that can still be relevant) is pretty massive too. And since I find myself leaning on mana dorks more and more having the ability to give them haste and win that turn alone (even without hte introduction of oteh red cards) is just so good.

Personally I don't like using Thassa's Oracle - I know the card is amazing but it's not my speed. I have been toying with the idea of Lampad of Death's Vigil as a non-Kenrith win condition (though he's still required to enable the combo) through either looping Dockside Extortionist or just looping the Lampad (with infinite mana).

I know the big benefit with Oracle is that you don't rely on infinite mana to win and you don't technically need your commander, which is really nice from an availability point of view, and that is one concern with Kenrith (though techincally I have the same issue with Thrasios).

My big concern with the switch though is that Thrasios doesn't need coloured mana to do his thing, which is still a huge selling point for me. Outside of combo I'm not really fussed but inside the combo, while I'll be able to generate infinite mana, I still technically won't be able to draw my deck from two of my mana dork loops. And including cards like Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy or Orochi Leafcaller seems a bit sub par. I know this is where Thassa's Oracle suffers a lot less, but has this been an issue for you at all?

Hey michaelqdoherty, thanks for the suggestions!

Initially, I wanted to get Gary back using Tortured Existence , but I am realizing I probably only need one in the deck, and wouldn't mind finding room for some Exhume . I feel Lampad of Death's Vigil , would be a possible replacement for Phyrexian Rager as I already have a fair amount of card draw.

Have you thought of using Lampad of Death's Vigil ? I see how Unearth works well in here, but what about Exhume so you can get Gary back?

Daemogoth Titan + Tend the Pests is an excellent combo that can give you a bunch of pests that work well with Plumb the Forbidden , drawing 11 cards while only losing 1 life.

Professor of Zoomancy and Lampad of Death's Vigil can most likely be taken out since they are on the weaker side of cards from this set plus there are better ways to use those sacrificial pests.

Tenured Inkcaster really only synergizes with Blood Researcher as those are your only +1/+1 counter sources.

I'd say take out those cards mentioned above and inserting more removal spells or the like to trigger Sedgemoor Witch and Witherbloom Apprentice . Affecting the opponent's board will help you reach that W.

Nice deck nonetheless!
