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."

If you throw in a Pitiless Plunderer then you can go infinite with Carrion Feeder and Gravecrawler ;)

Even besides that Plunderer is a good card

Headless Rider might also work decently in this deck.

Howdy! I'm currently working on a competitive Modern build centering around the Pitiless Plunderer/Gravecrawler/Carrion Feeder combo: Pitiless Gravecrawler

When trying to figure out how to get more card draw, I came across the card Undead Augur, which has performed fairly well in playtesting, being a decent chump blocker and even a payoff for our combo (though sometimes we can get close to killing ourselves with the life loss before we hit our Zulaport Cutthroat or Blood Artist).

However, I also recently rediscovered the card Relentless Dead, which not only serves as a slightly crueler attacker than Augur, but also a payoff for our self-mill and graveyard tutor strategies. The only gripe I have with it is that it would normally grab Carrion Feeder, but in most situations I would be sacrificing it to Carrion Feeder, and Gravecrawler has built in casting anyway.

What do you think?

Also worth noting that Gravecrawler, Carrion Feeder, and Pitiless Plunderer go infinite.

I'd recommend the last two anyway, but if you wanted a combo you could add the first.

I have considered both actually! My DOM sheoldred deck actually uses Imp's Mischief.

The combo is Krark-Clan Ironworks, Scrap Trawler, and Myr Retriever on the field, sac Myr Retriever to it with Sol Ring and Junk Diver in graveyard. Theres a lot to how the combo actually works but it goes infinite with the Imotekh the Stormlord, Blood Artist, and Zulaport Cutthroat. Its not even close to the only combo, the "Station" cards go infite a lot as well.

Other combos are based around Pitiless Plunderer and Sly Requisitioner respectively! Ill post the description tonight or in the morning!

I always like effects like Bottomless Pit and Necrogen Mists when I'm building a discard deck, these clear out a ton of cards over time, and even one will quickly make it very hard to keep any cards in hand past upkeeps. There is also Cunning Lethemancer, Necrogoyf, Stronghold Rats and maybe Raiders' Wake if you think you can count on being able to swing at someone. I like these effects more as a way to keep opponent's hands extremely small, they play more like a Stax effect in many ways. They play well with the 'cares about hand size' effects as well as 'cares about discard' effects, and as noted, make it very hard for people to store cards. Other than stuff like Mind Twist and Hymn to Tourach, I don't find single target discard is reliable at keeping hands small, 'engine' enchantments always felt really good.

Have you considered Helm of Possession and Ritual of the Machine, both can do great work in a sacrifice deck that can afford to lose a creature to steal something much juicier. I think Helm is usually the stronger card if people can't blow it up right away, but Ritual is Reserved List and prone to spiking when someone realizes it's potential. Both are a tad pricey, just thought I'd mention them.

Final point, if people are going to be discarding a bunch of creatures potentially, you might like Coffin Queen as a way to reanimate those pitched bodies, especially your opponent's stuff, as it gets exiled when it dies again. Demon of Dark Schemes can also work, not sure if you can generate enough energy to make it viable, but with stuff like Pitiless Plunderer it can go infinite reasonably easily.

It seems pretty decent in most token-heavy sacrifice decks. It's a worse Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, and pairs decently with Sifter of Skulls, Ashnod's Altar, Pitiless Plunderer, and the like.

I don't have any specific uses for it because it's outside of the color identities of most of my decks that would want it.

War Room is card draw that can work, there are also cards like Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood, Syphon Mind, and Village Rites (there are lots more). There are various enchantments that sit around and help like Black Market Connections, Underworld Connections, Greed, Necropotence, and Phyrexian Arena. If you recast Juri repeatedly, Tome of Legends might work. Ayara, First of Locthwain can draw some cards.

It's a tad out there, but Mask of Griselbrand lets you draw cards and is cheaper than Skullclamp, and it offers evasion and the ability to gain life via your newly evasive Commander.

If you're fairly desperate for draw, you could risk Allure of the Unknown, a card that I have generally been happy with. It sucks when you just hit lands and mana rocks, but you probably were going to lose the game if you had to sit and draw rubbish for 6 turns.

I really am liking the new Make an Example, this is actually a removal effect that forces each opponent to sacrifice their best creature, and can be even better if your opponent doesn't know what to pick.

If you already have Gravecrawler in the deck, another card that synergizes well with creature sacrificing decks is Pitiless Plunderer. Gravecrawler, Viscera Seer and pitiless plunderer are infinite Scry, ETBs and death triggers.

Would Culling Ritual work in here, both as a way to turn all your tokens into mana to cast something absurd (maybe The Meathook Massacre, or Torment of Hailfire can just finish things with enough mana), and you also get new bodies from each of your opponent's creature you kill. It's also able to clear out most of the good mana rocks people love to play.

I feel like Chatterfang, Squirrel General works really well with Pitiless Plunderer as well as working with other token generators in the deck.
