Phyrexian Tower Discussion

Gadianten on Divine Machinations (Cleric Tribal)

Hey Jack_83 I used to run Phyrexian Tower but found the decks low land count punished me for running lots of colorless land and have generally found my self not wanting to sacrifice to be able generate black even if it is extra. However, if I boost my land count I would definitely run it then. On second thought I may replace High Market, I might need to rethink my lands a bit.

smilodex on Ishkanah, Grafwidow Commander COMBO Deck

Thanks for your comment. I am very happy about such comments, as it is difficult to keep an eye on every possible combination with over a thousand commanders, especially with such a commander like Ishkanah, which you don't meet in your LGS every day. Thanks to your comment, I can see more of the potential of Ishkanah. I you want to tune up your deck, I have some recommendations for that:

I would exchange:

I would play as many cool utility lands with a sacrifice effect and as many fetch lands as possible because they're needed for Delirium and have also great potential with the MVP in every graveyard deck Life from the Loam:

Carddraw or Cardadvantage:

Other good finishers/ combo pieces:

Well, I'm sure that you already know what other options there are to tune up the deck. If you want to win consitenly I would add more ways to produce infinte mana like Nim Deathmantle + Priest of Gix + Ashnod's Altar or Magus of the Coffers + Staff of Domination OR another unigue and complicated way to filter infinite colorless mana with Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth is together with Mirage Mirror and a Swamp...

To make the whole thing more consistent you have play all green and black tutors, play fast mana like the Moxes, Mana Crypt/-Vault, Manadorks (Elvish Mystic/Elves of Deep Shadow/Llanowar Elves etc. and pack some premium removal in the deck to raise the power level. If you're interested we can brew a fringe competetive list together.

Gobo-Sharpie I'm glad you like the deck! Witch's Cauldron would definitely be nice in the deck for some better card draw and the life gain would be nice in the slower games. Phyrexian Tower seems pretty good but this deck needs a lot of colored mana for it's creatures so I don't think it would be super useful until later in the game. Assault Strobe seems fun and it could be a powerful finisher. I'll play around with with the cards you recommended and see what I like. Thank you for the suggestions!

I really like your deck :)

Witch's Cauldron as a card drawing engine for all those creatures you will sacrifice at the end of your turn anyway I would drop Cathartic Reunion for it.

Phyrexian Tower let's you also get more mileage out of your creatures after having used them and is a land.

Assault Strobe could be nice too to.

I definitely did consider Burnt Offering and Phyrexian Tower. Those are cards that I actually need to test more and I should probably move them into the maybeboard. When I was writing the primer, I completely forgot to include them. Priest of the forgotten gods is an interesting one since it functions as draw, removal, and mana production. It's one I haven't thought to actually utilize much since I like most of my sacrificial abilities to be on the fly, but it's lower CMC might merit it an actual spot.

I hadn't thought of Culling the Weak or Infernal Plunge at all, so I'll take those into consideration with my next set of testing and re

Have you considered Culling the Weak, Infernal Plunge, Burnt Offering, Phyrexian Tower and/or Priest of Forgotten Gods? Mana producers that also play the sac theme. You're already running Phyrexian Altar, these would be an extension of that.

Anomanderson on Marchesa, Karate Chop Surprise!

Lokotor, thanks for the suggestions. Very helpful.

I have recently found myself with more haste enablers on board than I need. Urabrask the Hidden would be the first one I cut. Crashing Drawbridge has been great to protect Marchesa early since it can come down before her and allows her to get a +1+1 counter immediately.

The avg. CMC shows artificially high because of Blasphemous Act. It is actually closer to 3.3 CMC for what I usually cast Blasphemous Act for. That said, lowering the avg. CMC even more is a work in progress. Balancing efficiency with the Timmy in me has always been a challenge...

I have plenty of card draw in this deck, so churning through my library and hitting land drops has worked well with 35 lands, though 36 would feel better. There are actually 9 sources of ramp in here, NOT including the Phyrexian Altar, Ashnod's Altar or Phyrexian Tower.

The real value I find with Sidisi, Undead Vizier and Rune-Scarred Demon is the ability to recur them to keep tutoring for answers or win cons once they’re on the battlefield. My meta is a little slower and our games tend to go long. Rune does double duty on attacks as a flyer and Sidisi does double duty as a sac outlet.

I have added Scroll of Fate to my short list. I’ll start testing that one.
