This is my first dive into the sacrifice archetype, and I've been having a lot of fun iterating on this deck. The core of the deck feels great in play, but I still have some testing and tweaking to do before I'd want to write up a primer. The current build is doing pretty classic aristocrats / tokens things, but having a sorcery in the command zone opens up a lot of brewing space. So far this deck has proven to be quite strong, and I'm happy with the current build.

Things I like about this deck: When it can set up a token production engine (including a way to accrue card advantage) this deck feels very powerful. When the triggers are cascading it's great fun to pilot. We also get to run asymmetrical board wipes, which feels lovely. We have access to great removal and tutors in these colors, and have so many different paths to go down, whether building towards combo wins or playing 'fair magic', or brewing around the front side of Extus, Oriq Overlord  .

So far, the most important cards in the deck for going off are Anointed Procession and Pitiless Plunderer. Once you have those, along with token production and some sustained card draw the turns get absolutely nutty.

What I'm working on for this deck: I'm thinking of adding Ranger-Captain of Eos along with utility 1 drop creatures such as Giant Killer and Mother of Runes. I likethe idea of a 1-drop toolbox that can be sacced when they aren't of much use. I'm also keeping my eyes peeled for what feels cuttable for some more removal/ interaction. I'd like to have a few more answers in my average game.

I usually like to build a deck as optimized as I can, see how mean it feels, then tune it down and add a little jank spice. Currently tweaking and adding some spice here and there. Again, the deck feels quite strong, enough so that I may cut some tutors to balance things out a bit better. I hope this provides a bit on inspiration. If anyone has ideas I haven't thought of, I'd love to hear them.

(Please don't be intimidated by the price, much of it lies in proxied lands.)
