Buried Alive Discussion
2 hours ago
I also play a Zombie EDH Tribal deck, which started out as a budget list and has evolved over the years.
I'm going to make a bunch of suggestions, and I'm trying to keep each suggestion below $5. Cemetery Reaper, Death Baron, and Undead Warchief are the most affordable Zombie anthems, and they add quite a lot of power to your Zombie army. Diregraf Colossus, Noxious Ghoul, Plague Belcher, and Vengeful Dead are excellent combo enablers for Gravecrawler shenanigans. They are also strong on their own merits, but turn into win-cons when you're sac/summoning Gravecrawler multiple times per turn. Cryptbreaker and Zombie Master adds quite a bit of utility. Graveborn Muse can be used to draw a lot over a turn or two, then sacrificed to stop the effect. Wonder in your graveyard gives you a flying Zombie army!
Buried Alive is a great fetch card. If you throw Wonder, Risen Executioner, and Gravecrawler all in the graveyard, then you basically just searched your library for 3 cards and put them in your hand for 3 mana. Great little combo. Plague Wind + Grave Betrayal is a fun little late game combo that takes control of all your opponents creatures, buffs them, and turns them into zombies. Each card is a great late game bomb on it's own as well. Rooftop Storm is basically the best non-creature Zombie card in the game, definitely include that bad boy. Underworld Connections is a pretty solid draw engine. Bontu's Monument is a great addition to any Zombie EDH list. Vanquisher's Banner is a solid card that provides a lot of value. Whip of Erebos can really save you as a way to gain life.
Hopefully I've given you a pretty good upgrade list. It takes time to get your perfect list put together, but I always find it helpful to have a good list of cards to upgrade to.

If you buried alive a Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Pestermite/Deceiver Exarch and a Phyrexian Delver, if you reanimate the delver, to reanimate Kiki-Jiki, tap him to copy the delver, bringing back the mite/exarch, then untap Kiki-Jiki, you win the game by making infintie copies of Pestermite/Exarch.

On another note, I really like the list here, the extra turn thing surprised me, but if it works, it works! I'll toss you a +1 for the unique take!
Spellseeker didn't make your cut? I saw it in the maybeboard, but since I didn't see you run it, I assume you have some reasons for that, I'd love to hear them!
Other than that, I see you don't run Laboratory Maniac (but have it in the sideboard), yet run Tainted Pact in the main deck, I know it works as a tutor, but you know, Laboratory Maniac + Tainted Pact/Demonic Consultation is a lot of fun. I see you run Entomb to dig out Kozilek, Butcher of Truth to reshuffle your yard in, which is clever, but running a reanimation package with Reanimate/Animate Dead/Buried Alive might not be the worst idea, considering how well I have found Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur to be with the discard synergies you run.

Damn that Wonder is a spicy include, I totally overlooked it before and I absolutely need one for now.
Living Death has put up results when I played it since I aim to have as many creatures in the yard as I can, which usually ends up being far more than any of our opponents, sometimes even more than them combined. Don't forget a lot of our creatures come in with EtB kill abilities, so consider this is on our turn we can arrange the stack as we want, meaning we can have those creatures go off first. Having a Phyrexian Obliterator, Duplicant, Hostage Taker, and Overseer of the Damned come in and wipe the 4 biggest threats on the board really makes Living Death more viable than you'd think, and with cards like Buried Alive you can pick and choose what you want on your board after the LD. Plus, you can always rip problem cards out early using SG's ability. Your meta might be more creature-heavy though, so be careful if so.
Keep running that Zombie Apocalypse btw if you like it. EDH is the flavor over function format and it's not a bad card at all, especially if you're running as many zombies as you are. My build barely runs any zombies at this point so I saw no success with it, but that card has a ridiculously high ceiling in a deck like this so have fun with it.
I hear you on the Cabal Coffers thing btw. I wanted one for a long time when I first got back into the game, but the more I play it the more I realize how much it sucks for me outside of mono decks. Crypt of Agadeem is where it's at and I'm happy to see it in this list.
So yeah, def like where this is going. Got some real spicy includes with cards like Training Grounds (which I want but am too cheap for after finishing off my modern decks) and Curse of the Bloody Tome which I'm gonna find some ways to add in. Really digging this list though, looks great.

Hey all. So recently I decided to make a Whisper, Blood Liturgist EDH deck. It started out as a pile of random black cards until I discovered a combo that I think can make Whisper at least a little more competitive. Basically the goal is to cast Buried Alive to dump Necrotic Ooze, Phyrexian Devourer, and Triskelion. Then reanimate Nooze with Whisper or another similar effect. Exile your library with Necrotic Ooze + Phyrexian Devourer and ping everyone to death with Necrotic Ooze + Triskelion . Although this is a widely known combo, I have yet to see it used with Whisper deck. In its current iteration, the deck (linked below) is alright, however it is wildly inconsistent. Goldfished games can have wins on Turn 3-5 (optimal) with a good opening hand, but can also last until like Turn 15-18. In these games I am usually just sitting there clicking Next Turn and hoping to topdeck a Tutor, Buried Alive, or a creature to sac to Whisper. This is where you, the reader comes in. The current list is just cards I currently have available for the deck (some of my rocks are being used elsewhere) but I am aware of most cEDH staples. However, if anyone has any suggestions of cards I possibly haven't thought about, or (preferably) wants to work side by side with me to make Whisper a decent(ish) general for cEDH. Im looking for people who have at least a little experience with cEDH but any help would be greatly appreciated. Or, maybe this is just a stupid idea and Whisper has no place here at all. Anyway, here's what I have so far, and thanks in advance for anyone's help.

Nice. Have you considered adding Fauna Shaman, Hua Tuo, Honored Physician, Meren of Clan Nel Toth, maybe even Sheoldred, Whispering One? None of these are cheap, but they can really give some punch to this deck.
Also, since you're playing black, it would be nice to add some tutors to this deck (aside from the ones I mentioned already). If you're looking to not spend overly much on these, I'd recommend Sidisi, Undead Vizier and Beseech the Queen.
Hope any of this helps. Let me know how the deck plays!

Seems fun! Bladewing is a personal favorite creature of mine. I used him as my commander for a while myself.
I have a few suggestions, if you want: (Keep in mind, I'm a pretty noncompetitive and somewhat broke player)
Dragons: I've always liked Scourge of Kher Ridges. He clears out smaller creatures nicely, his mana cost is a bit high, of course you can always cheat him out from your graveyard though.
Hellkite Tyrant can often come in handy, if you want to get greedy and start snatching artifacts. (Who wouldn't, haha)
I'd also recommend Utvara Hellkite, he's an absolute MONSTER if not eliminated immediately. Once again, high mana cost, but once again, graveyard shenanigans, haha.
Geez that was longer than I expected, sorry.
