Throne of the God-Pharaoh Discussion
3 weeks ago
I also play a Xyris Deck ( Snakes on a Planeswalker - Xyris EDH swarm ). I choose to not go with ETB damage, as I already play a Purphy commander deck, so had a couple extra slots to fill.
A couple surprisingly great cards have been:
Throne of the God-Pharaoh - Depends how many snakes you are attacking with.. i tend to churn alot of snakes and keep mine at 1/1
Dream Fracture - is a great extra counter if you need one
Mystic Reflection - depending on how much you lean on Coat of Arms, this is nice if you know the turn you are going to Wheel. Can get dragons instead of snakes.
I am definitely going to find a spot in my deck for Burning Inquiry, cant believe I dont already have it. Good luck. I love this deck, it is currently one of my favorite to play and can quickly get out of hand..

Oh, if you're strategy is to go wide and attack often, Throne of the God-Pharaoh is a must!

Hey, nice upgrades on a budget so far for the precon.
Opponent mill strategy is an interesting choice/change from the precon. Opponent mill that's not an infinite combo, but done over many turns can be risky in multiplayer Commander because graveyards are a huge resource for so many decks.
The precon has too high of a mana curve with over 20 cards that are 5 CMC or higher. You haven't really changed this, but you have reduced the number of lands to 34 from 40 in the precon. By reducing the number lands, but not reducing the mana curve you risk not being able to cast spells until much later in a game. You're right to reduce the land count and 34 lands is fine, but the rest of your deck also needs to be reduced especially since you've added Bolas's Citadel.
Upgrading to better high CMC cards which you have done with Rise of the Dark Realms and Bolas's Citadel is good, but you really should consider cutting other high CMC cards from the precon to add these such as Gorex, the Tombshell and Gravespawn Sovereign. Gravespawn is also a reanimation effect, but is worse than Rise. Tombshell can be reduced in mana cost, but that has negative interaction with wanting to reanimate Zombies.
Death Tyrant is an example of a budget high CMC card that's an upgrade for another five drop in the precon such as Eternal Skylord. Tyrant has excellent synergy with decayed Zombies because when they attack and are saced at end of combat then you create a 2/2 Zombie for each one. This interaction is also good with sac outlets such as Carrion Feeder to sac all your attacking Zombies in combat to create that many 2/2 Zombies which can then with Wilhelt, sac them to create 2/2 decayed Zombies and repeat the next turn with Tyrant.
Some budget lower CMC cards to consider adding:
- Pyre of Heroes: repeatable sac/tutor/cheat Zombie onto the battlefield.
- Master of Death: repeatable Zombie to sac since can return itself from your graveyard to your hand at your upkeep for 1 life.
- Necromancer's Stockpile: repeatable discard, excellent with Master of Death and good way to get Zombies into your graveyard for reanimation.
- Siege Zombie: combos with at least two other Zombies + Throne of the God-Pharaoh for lots repeatable opponent life loss.
- Apprentice Necromancer: can be repeatable reanimation source with Gisa and Geralf.
- Lazotep Plating
- Arcane Denial
Some cards to consider cutting: Gorex, the Tombshell, Switcheroo, Mass Manipulation, Aetherspouts, Eternal Skylord, Eloise, Nephalia Sleuth, Gravespawn Sovereign, Shadow Kin, Vilis, Broker of Blood, Open the Graves.
Good luck with your deck.

Awesome deck my man! I absolutely love Hapatra and think she is really fun! Feel free to check out my own build and see if there is anything in there you like: Hapatra, Vizier of Plagues
Keep it up man! Really fun to play :)

Throne of the God-Pharaoh will do a lot of work for you here. Tyrant's Familiar makes fore a nice surprise to tutor up with Magda as if you’re using her ability you’ve probably got your Commander out. I’d also recommend adding some vehicles to ensure you can tap your dwarves.
