Twilight's Call Discussion
1 week ago
First off, I'd just like to say that I am repulsed by these My Little Ponies being made into Magic cards. Makes me sick. I get why Hasbro has done it, but I'm over it.
So, onwards. I think a solid route to victory would be to run cards like Jarad's Orders , Final Parting , and Buried Alive to tutor the Ponies into the graveyard, and then win by casting something like Twilight's Call , Living Death , or Primevals' Glorious Rebirth to get them all onto the battlefield at the same time, then activate and win. I like this route, because it puts a sick twist on the happiness that the Ponies exude, and turns these happy Ponies into zombie Ponies, really.
Anyways, in all seriousness, I think this would be a solid way to set up your wincon. If you can afford one, Defense of the Heart could also help you with pulling out the last few creatures to pull off the win.

Bloodgift Demon is better than Indulgent tormentor, Dread Return than Whisper, blood litrugist. Erebos's Titan , Wake the Dead should fit in here nicely. Thespian's Stage can copy the coffers. Pitiless Plunderer and Pawn of Ulamog have strong on-death triggered abilities. Phyrexian Delver is one of my favourite cards. I don't think Corrosive mentor is any good. Entomb and some discard enablers like Putrid Imp would strenghten the reanimator aspect of your deck. Living Death and Twilight's Call should be great since you both have means to fill your graveyard and empty your opponents'. Filth might be good. More sacrifice enablers like Viscera Seer or Bloodflow Connoisseur wouldn't hurt. Exsanguinate is a great way to spend large amounts of mana. I would recommend replacing Vampire of the Dire Moon and Tenacious Dead with Weaponcraft Enthusiast , Marsh Flitter or Sengir Autocrat .

It looks like you have solid core set up here; some creature recommendations that might prove helpful are Balthor the Defiled for mass reanimation, Gray Merchant of Asphodel to abuse said mass reanimation, Grim Haruspex to feed your hand from some of your self sacrifice mechanics and inevitable board wipe and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed because of his general penchant for abuse.
If you want some good graveyard sculpting cards I recommend Necrologia , with no maximum hand size and a large life payment of 20 or so you can shape a nasty graveyard for reanimation shenanigans especially with Living Death , Twilight's Call or similar spells. While tricky you could also have Morality Shift to setup a devastating reanimation wave with Gray Merchant of Asphodel probably being lethal.

I had forgotten about Acidic Sliver ! I think that might have to be an include in my build if I can fit it. Only thing I would suggest is Patriarch's Bidding over Twilight's Call since it makes sure you get back all of your Slivers and your opponents don't get all of their creatures as well. Maybe a Demonic Tutor to search out those Non-Sliver combo pieces? Definitely a good deck!

This is a pretty cool build for Slivers and has a very cool line of play. That said, I would have to disagree with the choices of cards like Buried Alive and Entomb because if you're unable to draw/cast your Living Death -effects they're dead draws. Basically, Entomb only synergizes well with three cards in your deck: Living Death , Patriarch's Bidding and Twilight's Call .
Your mana curve is so low that I would encourage playing more cheap draw or ramp spells to either draw into more slivers or get your commander out early and utilize their abilities.
I used to have a sliver deck so I'll throw it up here if you're looking for some more ideas.

You might have a slight misconception with Garna and showstopper, Garna doesn't put them back on the field, and showstopper doesn't hit opponents directly, only their creatures.
To that end, Twilight's Call, Patriarch's Bidding, and Wake the Dead (don't ask me how I missed them myself) are 3 other amazing sources of mass recursion in black you could use. However, if you're willing to play it out, you could still use Garna and similar "back to hand" style mass recursion by abusing Pawn of Ulamog and Phyrexian Altar (or also see Pitiless Plunderer and Thermopod). Assuming just a basic 7 rats in hand, you can cast the first one, sack it to the altar for black and the eldrazi spawn token that is created at the same time provides the colorless (if needed) to cast the next rat line. Thus dumping every single one from hand back into the yard for (hopefully) massive damage and if nothing else a high storm count (if you wanna abuse that for anything). Bonus round: use the latter two I mentioned to keep casting Squee, the Immortal
As far as Showstopper goes, I think I'll be dropping it myself unless I decide to slot in a Stuffy Doll or something similar. The best use for it is when an opponent tries to decide when you kill your own board state, so you would use it to take out their board as well. Except in commander they are probably doing so via a board wipe of their own so it might be a moot point. Idk. I'll have to do some testing.
Lastly, kudos for finding yet another line of play for Judith. Since your rats will be boosting their own power most of the time, you may not need to use Ogre Battledriver for the power boost or the haste, and may want to play around Anger or slot in another form of evasion for your team.

Harmonize is fine, since green is one of the main colors of the deck. Rally the Ancestors and Twilight's Call cost a lot of mana, so it's not hard to have double white or double black in the 6+ mana you paid for them.
