Pitiless Plunderer

Creature — Human Pirate

Whenever another creature you control dies (is put into the graveyard from the battlefield, tokens are put into the graveyard before they cease to exist), create a colourless Treasure artifact token with ", Sacrifice this artifact: Add one mana of any colour."

This deck focuses on stalling opponents with pox and lifegain long enough to set up an infinite combo with Pitiless Plunderer, Ashnod's Altar, and Reassembling Skeleton with other cards to fill the combo.

I used CSS to make this page look cool, but then had a huge amount of lag. Google didn't help and couldn't find a forum on this site to help. Hence why it doesn't have a description for now.

E10perrotti on They will grab your nuts-Chatterfang

sqrllz Thanks I am trying to get feedback so I can make it not just fast but also fun. Do you have any Ideas like what to take out or add? I will add Pitiless Plunderer because I have the other combo piece of the combo in my deck and the Ivy Lane Denizen + Scurry Oak combo. I feel like there are not enough lands and I am wondering if there is any ideas for that

Personally I would make these swaps:

Unburial Rites -> Second Sunrise
Gilded Lotus -> Pitiless Plunderer
Mind's Eye -> Grim Haruspex
Indulgent Tormentor -> Species Specialist

Masterful on Necronomicon | Teysa Karlov | Primer

Housegheist New Elesh Norn  Flip is a pillow fort card on the front, which while useful in a vacuum, doesn't synergize with any of our cards or strategy. I'm not sure if I'm missing something, but what does Norn's frontside have to do with Teysa's second ability? Her sac outlet is a nice addition, but 3 mana and having to sac at least 3 creatures is a tough restriction when we have access to much better sac outlets. For 4 mana, our cards like Luminous Broodmoth, Pitiless Plunderer, or Battle Angels of Tyr can end games if left unchecked. Norn is much slower and needs additional investment to start providing value. She's not bad, but I think we have better options.

DreadKhan on Meren Reanimation

I have a lot of fun using Meren in an EDH deck, maybe some of my EHD concepts translate?

I really liked stuff like Diligent Farmhand, Dawntreader Elk, and of course Sakura-Tribe Elder are very useful. There is also Elves of Deep Shadow, which is useful if you use the 'trick' of running lots of green ramp that finds Swamps/makes black mana and run less black sources because you only need a few. A few black ramp creatures are Blood Pet and Blood Vassal, Vassal is probably worse. A card I used to use in Meren that might work here is Street Wraith, it'll eat up a bit of life, but it gives Meren something worth getting back if she has low/no XP, I settled on running enough ramp-that-dies to not worry about Meren having nothing to do. Death payoffs like Grim Haruspex to draw some cards when things die might help too.

One really funny trick that's very easy for Meren to pull off (and that's way better in 1v1) is abusing Spore Frog, this also builds up XP fwiw. I think Dawnstrider is a lot worse in 1v1 than Spore Frog, but it is also a discard outlet so I run both in EDH.

If you want another 'backup Meren', there is also Hell's Caretaker, this is a bit cheaper than Meren and can actually reanimate big stuff on it's 2nd turn (usually much sooner than Meren), but it does eat a body each time.

Another trick I liked using was Gravecrawler + any sac outlet, as long as you've got another Zombie you can just reuse your Gravecrawler, even if you don't want to splurge on something like Phyrexian Altar or Pitiless Plunderer to make it infinite, it can still be pretty good to have a recursive (and cheap) creature.

Crow-Umbra on Isshin Aristocrats

Very cool to see an Aristocrats focused Isshin deck! I don't think I've seen one with this focus yet, so kudos to you. I have a few suggestions that I've used in my Isshin deck, but I think could work even better with an Aristocrats focus:

Stuff I've used in older Aristocrats/Reanimator:

I haven't played Brazen Cannonade yet, but it's something I've had on my radar for my Isshin deck. I think it could fill both modes of Aggro and Aristocrats play you might be aiming for.

Anyways, you have a cool twist that I'm happy to see. I hope it works well for you.
