Davinoth on Orah's Dirty Clergy [Aristostax EDH]

     ichibancho: That's a nice looking deck list! The only hangup I have is that you're only running 30 lands. Nothing in your deck is terribly expensive to cast, I think 5 being the highest CMC. You've got some ramp creatures and spells that I think are kind of redundant given the low casting cost of the deck. More often than not I think you'd prefer to draw a land than Priest of Gix . Same goes for Land Tax & Tithe . All great spells in their own right, but generally speaking I think hitting land drops every turn is going to be better for the deck's performance. I'd aim for 34 or 35 lands. =)

     Stuff like Night's Whisper and Village Rites is okay too, but you would get considerably more value out of something like a Midnight Reaper , Phyrexian Arena or even Relic Vial .

     There's a few creatures in there I wouldn't bother with. Daru Spiritualist , Shaman en-Kor and Geralf's Messenger are all places I'd be looking to add lands or upgrades. With Conspiracy out Geralf's Messenger is pretty sick value, but to me that's not enough of a reason to keep him. If you're looking for the life-loss I'd suggest Zulaport Cutthroat or Bastion of Remembrance .

     I tried to build this deck to function competently without Orah in play. Especially if you're winning the game, your opponents are definitely going to try to keep your Commander off the board. Sometimes I am a bit short on Clerics, but because the deck doesn't hinge on Orah's ability it has never really been a problem. One game in particular I was kind of frustrated that I couldn't hit a 3 drop Cleric for combo chains, but I ended up bleeding my opponents out with Karmic Guide + Reveillark + Zulaport Cutthroat haha, so it really depends on how you play the game out more than the tools you're drawing. =)

Loving the changes and the deck continues to be super cool.

I want to give you a heads up that I've been having huge success with Relic Vial since Yawgmoth is a Cleric as it's an Aristocrats piece that is significantly harder to get rid of.

The win-con is generally stacking aristocrat effects and recycling the graveyard over and over. Blasting Station, Cabal Archon, Relic Vial, and Wayward Disciple can deal a surprising amount of damage, and we can always just make an army of zombies with Rotlung Reanimator.
