Thieving Amalgam

Creature — Ape Snake

At the beginning of each opponent's upkeep, you manifest the top card of that player's library. (Put it onto the battlefield face down as a 2/2 creature. Turn it face up at any time for its mana cost if it's a creature card.)

Whenever a creature you control but don't own is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, its owner loses 2 life and you gain 2 life.

Gleeock - First off, thanks for the upvote and comment! Secondly, I am already playing Zariel, Archduke of Avernus. I agree completely that she is completely on them. Thieving Amalgam is a thought. It is mana intensive but stealing cards from my opponents while giving me fodder to attack with is solid. Necrotic Hex is a thing. I'll put that aside for when I playtest. Thank you!

Necrotic Hex can do surprising work. Zariel, Archduke of Avernus has been effective for me & matches alot of your goals for this deck. Thieving Amalgam does some work (& it's an ape-snake). Alot of these options are not very mana-value friendly, so that will probably be the challenge for you going forward.

Welcome (back) to the club, insideus!

For a couple of suggestions, I think Geth, Lord of the Vault complements Captain N'ghathrod well, with a similar mill-to-steal approach. Arcane Adaptation can turn all your creatures into Horrors for the tribal benefits.

If you want to max out the mill options and are okay with instant win combos, Mindcrank and either Duskmantle Guildmage or Bloodchief Ascension can hand you the game on the spot.

If you like the theft aspect, check out Thieving Amalgam as well.

Reign of the Pit and Grenzo, Havoc Raiser seem like pretty decent cards to add. Besides that, Enslave, Possibility Storm (don't think that's too annoying a card), Praetor's Grasp, and Thieving Amalgam are also pretty good cards that fit well within what I think your deck strategy is.

Nice list. A couple of thoughts.... I saw you mentioned you have issues with lands/ramp. By removing the more expensive, less synergistic cards with lands/ramp, it should help make the deck more consistent...

Hedonist's Trove - Stealing cards is fun but not needed

Rakshasa Debaser - See above

Thieving Amalgam - See above

Endbringer's Revel - Black has MUCH better forms of recursion. Dance of the dead, animate dead, necomancy, etc... although if you want not to field recursion, Oversold Cemetery

Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted - Cool with peer from the abyss but too costly. Having opponents draw cards is worse too. Using it on your own creatures for draw seems meh

Witch Engine - Slow ramp that benefits opponents? No thanks

1empyrean on Infinite Combo for Monkey Cage?

1 year ago

That's a good enough reason I suppose. I've used Monkey Cage in a Tasigur, the Golden Fang deck, but it wasn't really a combo or anything.

Esix, Fractal Bloom and Thieving Amalgam to trigger the cage would be super fun. It isn't infinite, but its very strong.

Gleeock on Useful additions for thantis, the …

1 year ago

The beauty of Thantis is the perplexing open-endedness of the commander. I've had the most success & fun making it a mix of: monarch/courts, token spawning big-boys (on upkeep is my fav.), polymorph spells to trade tokens for bigs, card draw for little guys, & lifelink.

A few favorites: Toski, Bearer of Secrets , Ohran Frostfang , Oath of Druids , Kardur, Doomscourge , Clackbridge Troll , Awakening Zone , Moldervine Reclamation , Thieving Amalgam
