the altar of chi

♦♦♦♦♦♦

this bizzaro build looks to exploit the synergy between su-chi and ashnod's altar. sacrificing a su-chi at the alter nets six quick mana and this deck is trying to find ways to use it. the primary options for dumping mana is our old friend, carrion ants.

splashing fallen empires gives the deck access to initiates of the ebon hand. the initiates are surprisingly useful here, giving the deck an early board presence while giving the deck the option to break off a huge, late game drain life.

cards like berserk and howl allow the deck to mess with battle geometry as well. later in the game, the deck often turns everying, including birds, sideways. with an ashnod's altar on the board and one of the instants in hand, any one of the attackers can turn into the winning blow.
