Soldevi Adnate Discussion

WebbofLies on I didn't choose the Slug Life, Slug life chose me!

An interesting ritual in black is Sacrifice, which has you essentially food chain a creature without getting an extra mana. This can allow you to bring out Toxrill very early by sacrificing a creature like Clackbridge Troll, or you could even sac Toxrill to it (on your turn in response to removal, most likely) so you can recast him for only the commander tax!

A similar card is Soldevi Adnate, which is repeatable but slow and does not have the element of surprise.

Gaea's Touch is a really good point. I used to run it in an enchantress deck and it was great. Those kind of, get your mana back, effects are always underrated I think. I've found a ton of use for Soldevi Adnate and that's kinda similar. Just a very reliable way to get back the mana you spent.

Spectral Steel is one that I never see mentioned but I've always found it very good. Buffing Esper Sentinel by 2 is super annoying, and if you get it in the graveyard it becomes recursion for your best equipments and auras. I run it in a self mill deck and a lot of the time it's a tutor I can play out of the graveyard. That self mill also has Planar Birth which is the bombeyist of bombs when it goes off. Sometimes mill fizzles and it sits in my hand, but I feel like every time I play it I'm getting 6-10 lands into play. These may be situational, I fully admit, but I never see them talked about really.

Asgeren on Volrath: No School, like Old School

Good point The_Acid_Drip, I've run into that problem before. But luckily it's usually a destroy/-X/sac spell I run into, or I can sometimes sac him in response with Soldevi Adnate so I can reanimate him again. I've also put Tawnos's Coffin on my consideration list for exactly that reason - but I'll definitely try out Null Brooch and see if it can save Volraths ass in those situations. Thanks!

Soldevi Adnate (this is rly good, play it turn 2 and turn 3 have 2 extra mana to cast something big or late game to make a huge Exsanguinate, love it.

Carrion (its just good and i didnt know there was such a card)

Koskun Falls (i loved koskun, it has so much power in a more cedh deck, i play casually tho so aint the best for me).

You can also bring Ashnod's Altar with Moonsilver Key or cards like Caged Sun (just mentioning it). I think you could probably replace Wayfarer's Bauble (i am aware that way its on the field but still, you have much much more options with key)

Hey Carrick142857,

I'd say at this point, a lot of these kinds of decisions go down to personal preference, as well as your local meta. For example, I could easily see myself replacing Willow Geist with Soldevi Adnate. However, I do notice a general theme with the cards you listed (I forget; did I use Three Visits at some point?), which is that they're somewhat slow. I've also found the creature restriction on Metamorphosis a bit too restricting.


Alright, I think I'm replacing Willow Geist with Adnate, haha.

SlushyJones on Dancing in the Grave, with Volrath

I like Volrath, I designed a deck based around him too: I stepped out, I did not step down. I think you might enjoy adding Draco , as he can give Volrath +16/+16!

My method of making Volrath unblockable was giving him Swampwalk and then adding enchantments that make enemy lands into swamps. You might like this because I noticed you have Funeral Charm included already.

As for the combo you mentioned with Endless Cockroaches, I do not think it would trigger. I believe the Endless Cockroaches only return to hand if they die from play, not if they are discarded. Although I admit Endless Cockroaches could still be nice when used in conjunction with Soldevi Adnate
