Tithe Taker

Creature — Human Soldier

During your turn, spells your opponents cast cost more to cast and abilities your opponents activate cost symbol: more to activate unless they're mana abilities.

Afterlife 1 (When this creature is put into the graveyard from the battlefield, create a 1/1 white and black Spirit creature token with flying.)

Foster_I_Am Just released the update, sorry for the lateness! I got caught up in school and work.

  • Hidden Stockpile is slow for token generation, but it does a good impression of Bitterblossom. As a sac outlet, it's inefficient since you have to pay mana. The real strength of the card is that it does both. Personally, I like my token-makers as death-triggers, and my sac-outlets as cheap creatures or artifacts that grant me mana. It's not a bad card though, so play it if you like it!
  • Tithe Taker: I'm more a fan of the mana utility provided by Carrier Thrall than the Grand Abolisher-lite effect from taker. If you find your playgroup constantly disrupting you on your turn, it could be worth it.
  • Bennie Bracks, Zoologist: He's great at 1-mana, but I think our current draw suite is stronger with a higher ceiling than 1-card per turn. And while we have token makers in the deck, we're not all in on a token strategy, so other decks have more to gain from his effect than we do.

Let me know what you think of the update and thanks for the suggestions!

kirbysan Black Market Connections is a super interesting card. It's definitely better than Phyrexian Arena which is its closest comparison at the moment. The versatility is strong since we can generate fodder, mana, or cards whenever we're lacking them. Making all 3 is a crazy strong option that can pull us ahead in the early game for 6-life per turn, which isn't the most when we have lots of lifegain potential in the deck. I'm pretty enthusiastic about this card right now, but I'm gonna sit on it for a bit until my next update when the full Baldur's Gate commander lists are released. Thanks for the suggestion!

Hey Masterful, Hope all is well! Just was wondering if you saw anything interesting or worth including in your deck with the new Capenna release?

Additionally, have you ever considered running any of the following cards:

Hidden Stockpile - Feel like it's a great card with only 2 CMC and can possibly generate a decent amount of tokens. Not to mention it can also be used as a sac outlet (though it does cost 1 colorless mana).

Tithe Taker - Can possibly slow down your opponents and can create tokens when it dies.

Bennie Bracks, Zoologist - Can be easy to cast by tapping tokens and then can also draw cards from the tokens we sac. Might be interesting to test.

Not sure if you've tried any of those but they caught my eye recently. Just wanted to hear your thoughts first :)

Thanks! -Cory

My most mana intensive cards are 4 MV. The rest are 3 or below. The only one that really matters for mana is Ugin's Conjurant. Why do I have to be fast or timely with mana? I have tons of counterspells. Especially Mana Leak, Hold at Bay, and Tithe Taker. These are cards that will slow the game down for me. I don't like running too many or too little lands. Will be a nice middle that gives me a good even chance of drawing too many or too little.

Triumph of Gerrard is not that good, I'd run more creatures instead.

Adeline, Resplendent Cathar is a very strong human, I suggest at least 2 copies.

Esper Sentinel is pretty expensive so I understand if you can't afford it, but he's a really strong 1 drop that gets stronger as it gets buffed by Aspirant or Lieutenant.

Fiend Hunter for some more removal.

If you need to cut any cards, I'd suggest cutting Ollenbock Escort first. Then probably Tithe Taker. Taker doesn't seem too good because the Afterlife ability creates a spirit, not a human, and it only taxes on your turn.

I don't know if you plan to have a sideboard, but Sanctifier en-Vec and Sanctum Prelate are strong sideboard options in mono white for humans.

So two new options for you as well:

Sephara's Flock of Doves

Mono-white Budget Allies

Also some options to add to your anti-control suite is Judge's Familiar and Tithe Taker.

My hesitancy on Blade Historian is only that things are tight as-is and it it neither Angel nor soldier. But that Double Strike... Still looking for wiggle room for a few things. Valkyrie Harbinger and Tithe Taker and Constable of the Realm especially. But still...

White has great 'prevention' cards. These prevent your opponent from doing anything. I'm coming from pioneer, and I'm sure there are a ton of other cards that aren't in pioneer that are like these.

I use these in my deck:

Eyed Abyss of Rainbow Irises

Pioneer* 9-lives
