Priest of Forgotten Gods Discussion

CrimsonChaos on Korvold's Hunger

12 hours ago

Ashnod's Altar and Animation Module can be a powerful combo setup with Korvold. More sac outlets in general would probably be nice to have, like Viscera Seer , Priest of Forgotten Gods , Yahenni, Undying Partisan , Goblin Bombardment , or Ayara, First of Locthwain . Token generators like Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder , Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin , Pawn of Ulamog , etc. are good for giving Korvold plenty of fodder to sac. Ramunap Excavator is a more affordable version of Crucible of Worlds , allowing you to replay any lands you sac, and having creature recursion through Phyrexian Reclamation may prove useful too. All of which should each be cheaper than ten bucks!

Fracastador2 on Vraska, Queen of the Children of the Corn

Heyo! I'm building a very similar deck to yours (it used to have a lot more eldrazi than it currently does, but there are still a few.) Carrion Court Just wanted to let you know that Ayara, First of Locthwain can only trigger on the ETBs of/sacrifice black creatures. She does not interact with your eldrazi scions/spawn/green eldrazi at all. You may know that, but without that interaction she seems underwhelming here. My list has a few options you might want to consider instead (some not exactly budget), but I don't think I know of any cards that perform her precise role well.

If you want card draw: Underworld Dreams Moldervine Reclamation Midnight Reaper Grim Haruspex Yawgmoth, Thran Physician Priest of Forgotten Gods are thoughts.

If you want life gain: Vindictive Vampire Falkenrath Noble Blood Artist Are a few options.

I'm not going to make any of those "official" suggestions as I don't know what your means are for acquiring cards.

Oathbreaker absolutely is a good kind of format for this deck! It's robust to a bunch of different enemy strategies and can adapt to situations. I love it!

I have yet to ever win meaningfully with Vraska's emblem. I've gotten it, but my opponents have already been already dead on board whenever I have. Good luck!

This is an interesting list. It reminds me of some of my older Cartel Aristocrat / Mortician Beetle / Pawn of Ulamog lists.

Depending on how competitive you want to be there are a few options, and a few powerful directions. Cabal Therapist is notable in being powerful hand disruption- other aristocrats cover various options, from the venerable flying brick Falkenrath Aristocrat to my pet pick Spawning Pit . Indulgent Aristocrat and vampire/human dual tribal is a fairly strong choice.

Powerful card advantage options are out there in Priest of Forgotten Gods / Dark Prophecy // Grim Haruspex / Midnight Reaper even to the point of enabling Zombie Infestation storm wins.

For a more aggressive gameplan hand disruption, even the humble Duress will offer a lot- dodging board wipes is valuable. Plan your sideboard too- it will help a lot to know that you have a plan for burn or artifacts, almost no matter what it is. Just keep an eye on your curve and remember the number of modern games being decided in turns 1-4 by aggro and combo lists.

For Sidis I'd cut Priest of Forgotten Gods . Though it's probably best to play test and figure out what isn't performing well before making a cut.

I remember trying to build a deck like this once. I think Dragon Tempest would be a good inclusion in this deck since it works for any creature with flying, not just dragons.

For your sacrifice theme, I recommend Skirsdag High Priest and Priest of Forgotten Gods . Weaponcraft Enthusiast is a good and cheap fodder producer in addition to the ones mentioned by Funkydiscogod.

Personally I would consider using 2 or 3 copies of Judith, the Scourge Diva and a playset of Priest of Forgotten Gods . If the budget is not an issue a playset of Bloodghast would work splendid in this deck, though you would need to rework your mana base with some fetches and shocklands.E.g Blood Crypt , Bloodstained Mire , Sacred Foundry and Arid Mesa . Perhaps 3 Seraph of the Scales instead of Hunted Witness and more copies of Cartel Aristocrat as your sac outlets. I would remove Shamble Back and Spark Harvest completely. I would use 3 Fatal Push and 2 Dreadbore instead as a removal package. In place of Utter End and Raise the Alarm I would use playset of Cruel Celebrant or Blood Artist as the main drain engine of the deck. I would also run Tithe Taker in place of Martyr of Dusk . As for the sideboard 2 copies of Grafdigger's Cage for graveyard hate, 2 copies Vandalblast for artifact hate, Bedevil and an extra copy of Anguished Unmaking
