Nim Deathmantle

Artifact — Equipment

Equipped creature gets +2/+2, has intimidate, and is a black Zombie. (It can't be blocked except by artifact creatures and/or creatures that share a colour with it.)

Whenever a nontoken creature is put into your graveyard from the battlefield, you may pay . If you do, return that card to the battlefield and attach Nim Deathmantle to it.

Equip (: Attach this to target creature you control. Equip only as a sorcery. This enters the battlefield unattached and stays on the battlefield if the creature this card is attached to leaves the battlefield.)

Housegheist glad you like the deck and thank you for taking the time to comment.

  1. I ran Divine Visitation when I first made the deck, I rarely attack and when I play this deck and opt to kill through aristocrat combos. So I ended up only using it to combo with Requiem Angel and a sac outlet, and eventually dropped it altogether.

  2. Nim Deathmantle I added in last year and has been amazing.

  3. Dream Devourer is in my maybe list and I've just been too lazy to get a copy to test out, but it will be tested eventually.

  4. Martyr's Bond has been great. I find the 6cmc worth it because it affects all nonland permanents. So my opponents have to lose their important enchantments/artifacts to destroy my combo pieces and since this deck has pretty good treasure generation, I can keep my opponents mana rocks off the field most games.

And I will absolutely take a look at your deck sometime today.

Nice take on Teysa. I like her ability a lot and she's one of my favouritve cards of all!

It seems like you're creating a lot of tokens... What about Divine Visitation? Nim Deathmantle can be used as a phenomenal recursion pice (and can go infinite with Elenda, the Dusk Rose. Dream Devourer showed hinself as a wonderful ramp-piece which also protects your cards from discarding or similar effects.

Which experiences do you have with Martyr's Bond? It seems pretty slow with that high cmc. Does it perform well?

My first eve deck is a take on Teysa too. Maybe you wanna have a look:

Necramus on Killing with (Konrad)

Profet93 Thanks for the love, and great suggestions! Glad you've enjoyed my take on Konrad. I agree on Priest of Forgotten Gods, as it seems to always prove to be a card that just kinda ends up sitting there. I'm thinking I'll sub in Contamination or Imp's Mischief per your suggestion. I don't love Nirkana Revenant as, for me, at 6 mana it really just feels like a win more card. Like I should already be winning if I'm in a position to cast this, unlike something like Grave Titan that can be part of a combo or actually comes down as a legitimate threat. Several of these cards you suggested I've never seen before, like Contamination. I don't love Infernal Darkness, especially sitting right next to Contamination, as I think it's strictly worse. The only worry I have with Contamination is it shutting off my own Coffers, but that's a pretty niche scenario and will likely still put me in a better position. I've had Lightning Greaves in the main before. I may add them back in, at some point. At worst, they say "pay 2 mana and make your opponent waste removal on this card or in response to playing this card." Nim Deathmantle I had not even considered, but I definitely am now. You've given me some great stuff to think about. I genuinely appreciate you! Definitely going to be looking at my list and seeing what I can squeeze in. Just ordered Contamination and Imp's Mischief. So, thanks again!

Given that you already run bitterblossom, Ophiomancer and reassembling skeleton, have you considered adding Contamination or even Infernal Darkness to your denial package?

Given you already run Grave titan and ashnod's altar, have you considered adding Nim Deathmantle for the combo?

Moreover, since you deck is fairly contingent upon having your commander out, would you consider some protection in the form of Lightning Greaves or my personal favorite, Imp's Mischief (which "counters" counterspells and redirects targeted removal, draw and extra turns?)

Deserted Temple - Untap coffers and political tool

Lastly, I would swap out Priest of Forgotten Gods, potentially for Nirkana Revenant for additional redundancy of crypt ghast. Priest just isn't impactful enough and it has too many requirements.

I love your low avg cmc, great work! Looking forward to hearing your thought process.

This is great take on the big green bean! I cannot recommend Nim Deathmantle enough because your opponents will be targeting your commander quick. Here is my slightly older list that explains this and other card choices. Hope you find it useful!

I see two regenerate cards but they don't work too good with what you are trying to do. I'd consider Undying Evil and Feign Death instead.

For Rakdos blink stuff the only suitable card for your strategy that comes to mind is Golden Argosy but it will blink your commander before combat damage it dealt, meaning he won't proc of your stuff dying while attacking. Nim Deathmantle could work too I suppose but it is more mana intensive.

BTW I'm curious why does the list run Ad Nauseam and Doomsday?

You have the right idea. Once Nim Deathmantle's trigger starts resolving, people have to wait until it's completely finished resolving before making responses. The mana payment happens as part of the resolution of the ability. If someone wants to exile Tithe Taker from the graveyard in your example, they have to do it before Deathmantle's trigger starts resolving.
