Zulaport Cutthroat

Creature — Human Rogue Ally

Whenever Zulaport Cutthroat or another creature you control dies, each opponent loses 1 life and you gain 1 life. (Is put into the graveyard from the battlefield, tokens are put into the graveyard before they cease to exist.)

Hey, well done version for less than $100.

How do you win, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest? You have clear value engines, but how do you turn the value into winning?

This combo repeatedly puts +1/+1 counters on all creatures you control as well as scry equal to the amount of green mana you have available. Have any creature enchanted with Rancor, Seer sacs that creature, triggers Seer and triggers Mazirek. Rancor goes to the graveyard and then back to your hand creating a Zombie. Enchant Zombie with Rancor and repeat. Tormod, the Desecrator has uses outside of the combo since cards, any card, are leaving your graveyard with Muldrotha and/or reanimation.

Consider adding the newest budget persist combo that uses Zulaport Cutthroat or another aristocrat as a true wincon? Thran Vigil is the enabler for infinite persist and it also has other uses too since creatures and artifacts are going to be leaving your graveyard with Muldrotha and/or reanimation.

Feeder sacs Masticore it triggers Cutthroat. Masticore goes to the graveyard and then back to battlefield. Vigil removes the -1/-1 counter from Masticore and repeat.

Some changes to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

I suspect cards like Rite of the Raging Storm would probably work in here, you'd either get in for 5 each turn or get a card, and nobody else can swing at you with the tokens/changelings. Since you can also use Goblin Bombardment after a creature has dealt damage, you can kill any creature before combat actually ends, so you'd still get the card even if they let the creatures hit them. Any token generator that would ever be worth using is probably good in here too, even Orochi Hatchery could draw a lot of cards if people have to block. The best way to force people to block would be any kind of power buff that is global, I like Berserkers' Onslaught in Red, double damage also works well with any other buffs you can add. I guess there is stuff like Judith, the Scourge Diva too. The effect is pretty clunky, but with your Commander Captive Audience looks a lot better, those tokens are much more valuable, and it still usually a death sentence for one player.

Zulaport Cutthroat is a great Aristocrat to look at, I usually don't bother with it but at your budget maybe Butcher of Malakir can be a real nuisance, as can Ogre Slumlord if you're losing lots of non-tokens. If you find yourself running more wipes/removal, Sangromancer can generate a lot of life.

Not sure if they're within your budget, but Fire Covenant and Phyrexian Purge can both clear a ton of other people's stuff. Make an Example might be the best sorcery speed removal effect ever printed, it's non-targeted and uses sacrifice, but you choose the piles that die so you always hit what you need to hit with it. Ashes to Ashes/Reckless Spite can clear a couple bodies. In Rakdos I feel like you want some of the following, Feed the Swarm, Chaos Warp and Wild Magic Surge to deal with awkward permanent types.

PlanesRunner73 - I like the deck and the concept, but with hardly any one drops and very little interaction with your opponent, it feels like this deck will struggle getting set up as you will not really hit your stride for about 4-5 turns. That is assuming your opponent does not interact with your board at all either.

Also feels like the deck is really missing a strong win combo. You do have a lot of sacrificing related cards but if the main thing is built around you shaving away at your opponents health with Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, and Priest of the forgotten gods when you sacrifice creatures with Priest of the forgotten gods, that requires a lot of creatures/tokens on the field unless you are going to sacrifice key creatures that you can only return to the battlefield with a single card in the deck. Maybe Unearth or Call of the Death-Dweller would be a good addition in case you lack the board presence to effectively sac creatures you can bring them back if needed. I also feel like you could likely get a bit more graveyard reanimation with cards like Oathsworn Vampire.

I am far from an expert but those are my two cents just looking at the deck. Good luck and happy brewing!

I have an Elenda deck as well! I would highly recommend Massacre Girl. As long as Elenda has at least 1 counter on her already, and assuming there's other small creatures out, Massacre Girl will kill everything but Elenda and herself, and Elenda will witness every death and love every second of it. Personally, I found the creatures that did single target damage on creature death (Blood Artist and Falkenrath Noble, namely) to be expendable. Looks like you've got almost all the important hitters that ding everyone else when your creatures die (Zulaport Cutthroat, Cruel Celebrant, and Bastion of Remembrance) and that is usually enough. Although you are missing Vindictive Vampire. I'd also recommend Grim Haruspex for card draw, although tokens dying don't trigger it. Feel free to check out my list here! Dusk Rose Parade

Zulaport Cutthroat might be nice in this deck.

I like the look of this! A couple of things came to mind looking at the list Zulaport Cutthroat would be a good option if you need more Blood Artist effects. Collected Company could help get creatures out more quickly, and only doesn't hit Jarad himself. Worldly Tutor would be great for finding Jarad.

Elas il-Kor, Sadistic Pilgrim does have a bigger body and the benefit of deathtouch over the 1/1 keyword-less Zulaport Cutthroat. However, Zulaport Cutthroat drains opponents AND gains us one life whenever a creature dies, where Elas il-Kor, Sadistic Pilgrim does not. A creature has to enter our side of the battlefield in order to gain the life. I'm open to experimenting with Elas il-Kor, Sadistic Pilgrim in the 99, but not at the expense of Zulaport Cutthroat. I would rather replace Ob Nixilis, Unshackled for the purposes of trying to wedge in another life-drainer for the Apostle engine.
