Ashnod's Altar Discussion

gundulf on ZOMBIES

Cryptic Gateway Could be good if you wanna curve into some more expensive zombies. Also, if the goal isto spew out lots of zombies. Including Ashnod's Altar again, makes a potent engine for card draw with skullclamp. Which could then spew even further zombies out using the gateway.

Also maybe if we get lucky at the prerelease tonight, liliana, death's majesty looks like a natural fit for this deck.

PeterWhataguy, at first when I saw a comment, I was expecting someone to have typed Mycosynth Lattice in all caps, so I'll just quickly say why that's not here - I deliberately left that particular card out. If I can't make Memnarch work without it, I'll add it, but I don't need to steal everything, just choice bits.
Okay, on to suggestions, haha. Mirrorworks is in the mail, for this and my Breya deck too. I have an Ashnod's Altar that I can use in here, and I also have an Academy Ruins on the way for this deck as well. I will be checking at my shop tonight for a Scrap Trawler. Blue is so terrible for any sort of retrieval!

Spirits on Mizzix of the Izmagnus - EDH

Fellow Mizzix of the Izmagnus player, Mizzix, the Storm. +1

Lot's of fun stuff in here, do you find you play fast enough to be competitive?

I've found Tezzeret's Gambit generally will get me 2 Experience. Plus a minor card advantage too.

Blue Sun's Zenith is still pretty good, even without Infinite built into the deck, however, you do have a Ashnod's Altar so maybe a Glen Elendra Archmage + Sage of Fables might be a viable option.

Jace's Ingenuity could be a Plea for Power, might not always get you three cards, but the extra turn is nice too.

Bet you have some interesting and wild and wooly commander games with Eye of the Storm.

Izzet Signet might be a better mana rock instead of Worn Powerstone.

Nice Deck.

Long time Krenko player here. The artifacts you have aren't great.

Look into Sol Ring obviously, Thousand-Year Elixir to use Krenko multiple times a turn, Thornbite Staff, and Umbral Mantle more on these two later, use Swiftfoot Boots to protect Krenko. Additionally you'll want some mana, so Ashnod's Altar is a great card here.

For Instants and Sorceries, you'll want Krenko's Command, Dragon Fodder, Goblin War Strike, Hordeling Outburst, Massive Raid.

Goblinwise, Skirk Prospector and Goblin Chirurgeon are key. If budget isn't too much of a problem you'll want Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and (the not as expensive) Lightning Crafter. Grenzo, Havoc Raiser can be used as an alternate wincon and way to take out problematic creatures or players in multiplayer games. Purphoros, God of the Forge, while not a Goblin is too good not to have in the deck.

Enchantments. Believe me when I say this: Goblinslide is trash. It simply doesn't cut it. Look into the following: Boggart Shenanigans, Goblin Bombardment, Goblin Warrens, Impact Tremors, Mana Echoes, and Quest for the Goblin Lord.

Check out my deck for ideas. I don't know if it is too competitive for you: Krenko and Kiki-Jiki's Goblin Horde

Surprized to see Pod without Ashnod's Altar.

Ashnod's Altar can do good work in Zombie decks.

Patriarch's Bidding is a bit pricey, but dead on (pun intended).

Living Death is risky in EDH, but oh so fun.

I hope you know Dryad Arbor+Glimpse of Nature doesn't work.

Glimpse requires you to cast the creature, which Dryad does not fulfill, it is just played without being cast. Dryad also has summoning sickness when you play it, so it cannot really be tapped for mana unless you pass the turn and the opponent doesn't kill it. It's only use is being immediately sacrificed to Ashnod's Altar, but you can only do that once per turn because it is a land.

I suggest adding some Beck / Calls or something instead.
