Minion's Return Discussion

MagicMarc on Altar Combos!

Here is another one:

Minion's Return + Phyrexian Altar + Sun Titan

You need all of them in play and Minion's Return enchanting your Sun Titan.

Then you sacrifice Sun Titan to Phyrexian Altar, generating 1 mana of any color.
Minion's Return triggers, returning Sun Titan to the battlefield.
Sun Titan triggers, returning Minion's Return to the battlefield.

Repeat forever

With this combo you get: Infinite colored mana, Infinite ETB, Infinite LTB, Infinite sacrifice triggers, and Infinite death triggers.

There are quite a few auras you can use instead of Minion's Return that will do the same thing.

First glance - without playing the deck, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling and Zareth San, the Trickster are great for the long-game but the rest of the deck might not survive into the long game. There is a benefit to playing low cmc cards. Many can be returned and re-played using Lurrus of the Dream-Den. You can sac a 1-drop with Mutual Destruction to kill a big creature, return it to your hand with Blood Beckoning and re-play the original card - all for 3 mana. The advantage of having Slitherwisp in the deck is that you can cast Omen of the Dead, So Tiny, Starlit Mantle, Minion's Return, and others and get life gain/drain, then recast them from the grave with the effect of Lurrus. Sorry, but cards like Lullmage's Domination really do nothing for me - they are just too expensive to cast and clumsy.

Blightcaster seems to be rather underwhelming. Instead, i would suggest Unholy Indenture or Minion's Return.

Thanks for the suggestions Frosto! Liliana's Standard Bearer is interesting because it can be reanimated and triggered over and over, but it’s ability depends on my creatures dying, and sac’ing is not a central part of this deck’s strategy. This deck wants to discard cards straight to the graveyard, or bring them back if they die. Minion's Return falls in the same category as the Standard Bearer. My first priority is to get critters in my discard to reanimate, not prevent their death. Flash is nice tho. I can imagine a sac-heavy variation of this deck and those cards would fit perfectly.

Oh and you can recur the component parts of stacks under your control too: Athreos, Shroud-Veiled, False Demise, Minion's Return, Shade's Form, Unhallowed Pact, Unholy Indenture, Fool's Demise

Xantcha is so rad. Have you considered Heartstone? It would make it easier for everybody to use her draw ability.

These might interest you too: Revel in Riches, Unholy Indenture, Minion's Return, Blessing of Leeches, Soul Channeling, Visions of Brutality, Treacherous Link, Ragged Veins, Binding Agony, Spiteful Shadows, Unnatural Hunger, Errantry, Inner Demon, Psychotic Fury, Vampiric Link (unlike lifelink, the controller of the aura gets life, not the creature's controller)
