Ashen-Skin Zubera Discussion

Looking a bit more functional. Zubera Tribal (yes, it's a thing) has a rundown of the most functional zubera deck I've seen. With the land ramp, Collected Company seems like it should function, although I'd still run Birds of Paradise in place of Greenside Watcher on principal, given these aren't bounce lands and we aren't ramping wiht utopia sprawl. Hodor! Maze's End Turbo fog is a pretty functional mazes end deck, the big issue you'll face is that maze functions best in a control shell, and zubera as tempo/midrange, which are gonna be tricky to merge. Running Silent-Chant Zubera and Ashen-Skin Zubera to try and form a control package with something like Nezumi Bone-Reader and some discardy/lifegainy creatures is an option, and could help you stall until you reach that lategame stage, but it will take a bunch of playtesting and tinkering to streamline. Anti burn removal will still hit you hard. stuff like Ojutai's Command or Reap and Sow tactics might help in that case. a Scapeshift deck is also possible. Good luck!

I absolutely love the deck. After seeing this I am now determined to make my own variation including some of the following suggestions. Btw this is so long because its also a note to myself.

To pib : Well, you could be surprised by how beneficial sacrificing your own creatures can be. Of course I wish they would print an Zulaport Cutthroat effect at common. However, it doesn't mean my deck won't work until they print a card like this because it doesn't win in a traditional aristocrat-aggro kind of way.

This deck wants to overwhelm the opponent with card advantage while also maintaining a solid board presence. Aggro and attrition-based control decks like Monoblack Control are my best matchups because I can lock up the ground with resilient blockers while building up towards a big turn of Undying Evil + Ashen-Skin Zubera/Mulldrifter nonsense where the opponent often ends up empty handed and facing a huge Carrion Feeder

One of the biggest weaknesses of this deck is actually how it struggles at pressuring the opponent's life total quickly. It's kinda hard to beat someone down with 1/1's and 1/2's you know. It's another reason why I don't consider this deck an aggro deck.

To Zargast : Yea, I'm looking forward into this :-) I'll try to come up with a good idea and If I find anything that's worth taking a look at, I'll make sure to share it with you.

I like this deck, like it a lot. Just a couple of questions from someone not very familiar with the format:

Personally, I like to go a bit more "all in" on a theme when constructing a deck. Which, in this case, means adding a third color for either Ashen-Skin Zubera or Dripping-Tongue Zubera, basically removing the Oracles (it seems to be the least important card in the deck) just to get more explosive turns out of the deal. How feasible do you think is that in the first place? I know three-color decks with weird manabases do exist in the format (see Kuldotha Jeskai), so I think this might have a shot as well.

While we're on the topic: What's your take on Devouring Greed? Did you ever test with it, and could 7 not be enough Zuberas to support it? Might 12 do the trick? Just trying some thought-experiments here and would love to hear your opinion, if you can provide it =)

Grim Harvest is a spell that returns a creature from my graveyard to my hand and it has a recover cost of 3. Recover is a pretty obscure mechanic but its kind of simple. When a creature I control dies, if the spell with recover is in my graveyard, I can pay mana to return it to my hand and If I don't, the spell is exiled.

The ''combo'' of Grim Harvest and Ashen-Skin Zubera works like this: If I have a sacrifice outlet on the board (Carrion Feeder/Viscera Seer),Ashen-Skin Zubera and a lot of mana ( at least 7 ), I can sacrifice Ashen-Skin Zubera during their draw step, pay the recover cost of Grim Harvest, return Ashen-Skin Zubera to my hand then do it again which locks them out of playing lands and creatures if they have no other cards in hand.

Hey Sylex, how does Grim Harvest work with Ashen-Skin Zubera?? And what is it supposed to do? Sorry I don't fully understand how these mechanics work

Ashen-Skin Zubera same as Black Cat, also He Who Hungers Slow, but can double the effect of Ashen-Skin Zubera and bring it back on death, Bloodghast not budget but a expendable spirit, same as Nether Traitor, the Raven's Crime+Dakmor Salvage combo,The Rack or Shrieking Affliction likes discard decks
