### Athreos Shadowborn Apostle darkr0nos

Destroy your opponents with nice combos like Athreos, God of Passage + Edgewalker + Shadowborn Apostle and combine them with loads of infinite combos, that'll give you: 1. Infinite mana and one alternative win Strategy ( Ashnod's Altar, Pitiless Plunderer + Revel in Riches ) 2. Infinite creatures ( Xathrid Necromancer ), infinite creature removal 3. Infinite carddraw combos ( Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos, Reaper from the Abyss + Kothophed, Soul Hoarder ) 4. Infinite Health and Damage towards your Opponents with Blood Artist, Cruel Celebrant, Daxos, Blessed by the Sun, Falkenrath Noble, Pious Evangel / Wayward Disciple, Zulaport Cutthroat, Syr Konrad, the Grim 5. Infinitly big creatures with Cathars' Crusade, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled 6. Infinte Mill with Altar of Dementia and with Razaketh, the Foulblooded 7. (Infinite mana + Rune-Scarred Demon) you have infinte tutors. 8. If you want, you can have Infinite carddraw directly through the Harvester of Souls or Skullclamp. Remember that you can tutor all demons for one mana by sacrificing six Shadowborn Apostle. You can get theese really fast with Remembrance. Also you have enough ramp (apart from the infinte combos) through Dark Ritual, Orzhov Locket, Orzhov Signet, etc. If you want all that faster, just put in Teysa Karlov in, who doesn't only trigger all aristocracy abilities twice, but also boosts the Xathrid Necromancer. If one of your Opponents wants to pay your Athreos tax, you can return all of your Apostles with Immortal Servitude really cheap. Then I added some removal, some boardwipes to round it up a bit and yeah. Now you'll get tired of MTG, because you almost always win.

Vivctius Thank you for the great suggestions. Yeah the partners is the only way to play this deck I feel. The Hanweirs are on my hand written notes for add so thank you for putting here. Im more of a go wide player so a lot of these suggestions are great! Below are what I plan on adding. Hanweir Garrison Hanweir Battlements Benalish Marshal Commander's Insignia Judith, the Scourge Diva Xathrid Necromancer General Kudro of Drannith Teysa Karlov Anointed Procession Phyrexian Arena

I've been looking forward to this deck but only for the partner commanders tbh. I think it goes without saying Shiny Impetus isn't that good in the deck. Some of my suggestions are Hanweir Garrison and Hanweir Battlements. It depends now which path you take, you can go for a wide board and a beatdown strategy or go for a sacrifice and ping everybody. Kari Zev, Skyship Raider, Benalish Marshal, Commander's Insignia, Flamerush Rider are some good cards to go for the first strategy. Judith, the Scourge Diva, Xathrid Necromancer,General Kudro of Drannith (can work for both sides),Teysa Karlov,Priest of Forgotten Gods are nice additions for a sacrifice route. Ashnod's Altar works on both sides alongside with Anointed Procession, Phyrexian Arena and Dictate of Erebos if you really want to control the board. Now if you really want to get your table super salty get Silvar, Devourer of the Free jacked up and then equip him with Worldslayer and then just win. Is it viable? Not really, you have better strategies. But is it worth it? Yes, just to see the despair on their faces or you can run Avacyn, Angel of Hope that also works.

I also made a list around General Kudro of Drannith myself. Hes the best toolbox human commander we could ask for. I would suggest Magus of the Coffers, Thalia's Lieutenant, Xathrid Necromancer. If your having problems with Mana, Knight of the White Orchid and Verge Rangers. Maybe a Species Specialist and Grim Haruspex for card draw, but the list looks quite good as is enjoy!!

I really like this deck for its focus for its cost. One card to consider might be Xathrid Necromancer as there are plenty of humans that will be brought onto the battlefield with this deck.

The idea here is relatively straightforward; use Shadowborn Apostle to tutor into whichever demon I need, all while utilizing Teysa Karlov to provide value from cards like Grave Pact .

Included limited recursion from Unburial Rites and Rally the Ancestors to facilitate getting 6 Apostles on the board as necessary.

Xathrid Necromancer and Teysa, Orzhov Scion provide a nice loop of tokens and removal.

Alternative win conditions from Revel in Riches and Gray Merchant of Asphodel .

Looks good! You might like these: Infernal Genesis , Champion of Stray Souls , Ogre Slumlord , Harvester of Souls , Syr Konrad, the Grim , Grave Betrayal , Gray Merchant of Asphodel , Cauldron of Souls , Desecrated Tomb , Mimic Vat , Xathrid Necromancer .

Also, I hate to burst your bubble, but Carrion has been errata'd; You only sacrifice one creature at the time of casting, you can't sacrifice more than one.
