Maybeboard


Based on my Moxfield version of the deck.

Siempre es un pinche party con Burakos. All you need is 4 friends and you're all set to get weird with it.

This deck primarly aims to assemble a full party and swing out with the creatures best suited for wading into combat, and keeping value-generating creatures back as potential blockers. The deck does have the option to combo out, which I will detail later.

The primary combo in the deck right now is:

Leonin Relic-Warder + Necromancy + Zulaport Cutthroat . Bastion of Remembrance or Elas il-Kor, Sadistic Pilgrim can be used in place of Zulaport Cutthroat, and Animate Dead can be used in the place of Necromancy. Various combo iterations of the combo can also be Animate Dead + Leonin Relic-Warder + Zulaport Cutthroat , Animate Dead + Bastion of Remembrance + Leonin Relic-Warder , Leonin Relic-Warder + Animate + Elas il-Kor, Sadistic Pilgrim, etc etc

  1. Get Leonin Relic-Warder into your graveyard somehow
  2. Cast Necromancy or Animate Dead, targeting the Relic-Warder in the graveyard.
  3. As Relic-Warder enters the battlefield, use its ETB trigger to exile the Aura that's reanimating it.
  4. The Aura "falls off" Relic-Warder as it is sacrificed, which means Relic-Warder as now a legal target in the graveyard as the Aura returns to the battlefield, and can target the Relic-Warder in the graveyard to start the cycle anew.
  5. Have Zulaport Cutthroat or another Aristocrat effect on board to see all of the Relic-Warder death triggers from the loop, and machine gun down the table.

Possible expansion pieces

Although there are other ETB/LTB Aristocrats effects out there like Blood Artist, Corpse Knight, and Cruel Celebrant, I want to stick with creatures that carry Party enabling subtypes or are on enchantments.

While flipping through my binders and boxes to put this deck together, I realized that I have a lot of decent clerics, and this deck could be converted into a cleric tribal deck by swapping out about 25 cards. That list is already brewed up and being tuned/play tested as a possibility.

Aside from that, here are cards I'd consider buying, and others in my collection I'd consider swapping in:

Stuff I do own that I'd consider swapping in:

Part of why I'd consider Cleric tribal is because I have a decent selection and they are all fairly interactive with their various control effects. These are the most likely to get swapped around as I tune the deck to my play group:

Mostly rocks with a few miscellanous effects sprinkled in. I sometimes underestimate the treasure production in the command zone to help keep things accelerated. Mana needs are fairly smoothed out as long as Burakos can swing a couple of times with 2-3 creatures in the party each turn.

Salad of effects

Rocks

Having Folk Hero in the command zone certainly helps keep at least one new card in hand, especially with a sprinkling of Flash creatures.

A mix of cantrip, multiple card bursts, and repeatable effects:

A mix of single target and wipe effects. I tried to include some temporary exile effects on creature ETBs that could be utilized as well. I tend to lean towards exile removal as much as possible when available, as well as removal options that allow flexibility to permanent types that can be removed.

I tend to split Interaction from Removal a bit when possible. For me, Interaction is the umbrella term I used for effects that make it difficult for opponents to interact with their own resources, or my board as intended.

I sometimes lump protection effects in here, but it varies a bit from deck to deck.

Graveyard/Reanimator Hate

Temporary Removal

Aristocrats, Anti-Aristocrats, & life loss effects

Everything else lol
