Smothering Tithe


Whenever an opponent draws a card, that player may pay . If the player doesn't, you create a colourless Treasure artifact token with ", Sacrifice this artifact: Gain one mana of any colour."

With so many high CMC cards, you could really use a good suite of artifact ramp: Sol Ring , Worn Powerstone , Marble Diamond , etc. as well as the new white ramp staple, Smothering Tithe .

Given that little in this format stays dead, you may want to look at some more removal that exiles [and is less conditional]: Swords to Plowshares , Return to Dust , Crush Contraband plus have catch-all removal with Generous Gift as with all of these flyers, a 3/3 elephant isn't going to do much to you.

A piece of equipment you may want to consider is Moonsilver Spear . I used to use it with my angel deck but removed it because its a bit slow in getting out there but it certainly fits the theme well.

Karmic Guide fits the reanimation theme you have going.

jaymc1130 I'll try that. I'll swap out Smothering Tithe to put in Elixir of Immortality . I don't know if it's a good thing or not but you made me realize that I don't have any recursion at all in the deck. So there it is.

Also, what do you think about adding a Walking Ballista to the deck? I feel like it could help me to get rid of some creatures in addition of being another mana outlet. I would take out Swords to Plowshares to put in the Walking Ballista .

Hiya ejoelgregory,

I have considered Smothering Tithe and personally, I feel that it's too slow for this build and my meta. It's relying on your opponent's for mana (1 mana per turn unless they have a draw engine, per opponent that doesn't pay) and I'd rather have Gilded Lotus since I can access 3 mana immediately. If my meta becomes more draw intensive then yes, Smothering Tithe would be an auto include.

Hey jaymc1130 ! About Timetwister , in really want this card soooooo bad but since it cost like 3k, i'm piling my money to get one someday...

About Copy Artifact , it is there to copy Isochron Scepter or a mana rock like Mana Vault or Mana Crypt . If I'm taking it out, what should I put in instead?

And for Smothering Tithe , it in there just because I don't own a Dark Confidant

Hi ZombieCat! Have you had considerations for Smothering Tithe ? I personally prefer it over Gilded Lotus . Either one as a lone source of ramp could possibly get a turn six Avacyn, but Smothering Tithe has the potential to get Avacyn out sooner. And if it doesn't, it slows down your opponents. Just a thought.

Memory's Journey + Noxious Revival , Timetwister (If, you know, you casually have 3k lying around like a boss), or even potentially Elixir of Immortality as loop enablers to enable looped wins after Iso/Rev draws out the whole deck in the event Lab Man and Jace are both in exile. Significant improvement in resiliency and functionality that can be added by (potentially) one card.

In the event you make some sort of change in this fashion Copy Artifact is no longer needed for Swan win line (just looping manually achieves the same result, Copy Artifact only allows Swan win line or Trophy win line but looping enables Trophy win line simultaneously with Swan line and any other loops in the deck like Praetor's Grasp) and Smothering Tithe also strikes me as a replaceable card.
