Also works with Ghoulcaller Gisa if you also add on Phyrexian Arena so you can sacrifice a Zombie for . Each 2/2 Zomboi token creates 2x more of them. You sac one to Arena and the other to Gisa. This sets you back to 2x 2/2s, so you need one of two extra pieces:

  • Either some sort of anthem effect to give them at minimum +1/+0. Effects could be something such as any of the numerous Zombie Lords or an Enchantment. This way you have 1x for Arena, 1x for Gisa and the last for your Avatar.

Alternatively, Anointed Procession to merely make 4x 2/2s.

DP87In effetti hai ragione, però avendo tante creature con varie abilità è una specie di assalto.Come ti ho detto,non so il livello di modern.Ma sono sempre convinto che la prima regola dovrebbe essere di divertirsi.Guardo con nostalgia i vecchi mazzi degli anni 90.A questo punto potresti inserire Phyrexian Arena in più ho notato che hai una creatura anche con mana blu.Un mazzo assalto è molto divertente...

TriusMalarky on What Makes Phyrexian Mana More …

Well, IMO when I'm actually paying more than a couple bucks for a card, it'd better be usable in competitive play. I'm not wasting $50 on some Doubling Season effect when there's thousands of other fun casual decks that don't require such an investment. Especially when $50 is 2 Windswept Heath s and a Godless Shrine . But that's just my works-in-fast-food doesn't-make-$50k+ self.

And seriously . . . why use any of those when you could, I don't know, win the game? If you can draw 20-30 cards, you can probably draw something or some combination of things that reads 'win the game', and unless you have 40 Devotion(in which case you've already won) Gary isn't gonna cut it.

Those are good cards, yes, even in more tuned games. But Necropotence should read "win the game on your next turn" if you're including it. Otherwise, it's just a glorified Phyrexian Arena . I mean, yeah, "draw to 7 cards at the end of your turn" is really good for 3 mana. But when you're spending $50 on a card, when a $10 card does a very similar thing when you're playing it casually(not even considering the $1 versions that are slightly worse), I think you want a bit more of a wow factor.

Spoke more to iamhikari.

+1 Kaya's Ghostform back in to go infinite w/ Sun Titan and a sac outlet. +1 Goblin Bombardment that he owns.

Don't really like Skyline Despot and Terror of the Peaks here either....but I'll leave that to your preference.

-1 Swamp, -1 Plains. +1 Caves of Koilos , +1 Battlefield Forge for cheap mana-fixing. And maybe the appropriate Zendikar/Kaldheim Pathway lands if you want to go a bit higher in budget.

Arcane Signet is ~$2 now too.

At the risk of too many more enchantments Hidden Stockpile could provide both token generation and a sacrifice outlet.

Depending on how much you prefer turn-after-turn enchantment based draw like Phyrexian Arena you could instead use burst draw, like Night's Whisper or Village Rites ....1 mana to turn your creature into a draw spell in response to a boardwipe or block? Can be really effective.

And alternatively, with this amount of boardwipes and low CMC removal, you might just want to stick to the big value beat-sticks like the Despot and Terror as wincons rather than Aristocrats.

Already been aluded to but I'm confused why Breena, the Demagogue didn't say "has more life than another player" instead, or even just dethrone wording. Not like reliably having a Phyrexian Arena in the command zone (that situationally cantrips) 1v1 is particularly broken

i have made a mono black vampire tribal / voltron deck it may be useful for vampire idea's and other painful black cards as i see a lot of cards in this deck that don't really add much value for you. Drana MTGO

I would also add Cathars' Crusade and Intangible Virtue to give some extra damage to tokens, Harsh Mercy and Kindred Dominance would be a good add. Blood Tribute is always a good card to run especially if you add Wound Reflection , Phyrexian Arena for pure card draw Chromatic Lantern for mana fixing, Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond for an infinite combo / win con. reanimation id add Patriarch's Bidding . life gain id add Exsanguinate . if you can get your hands on one then id recommend Cavern of Souls
