Call to the Grave Discussion

maxon on AINT NO PARTY like an UNDEAD party..

1 week ago

Love-in-Theory, thanks for checking my zombie brew. Yes I did consider Grave Titan, but I really want this brew to be zombies only, unless it's just to good to pass up. Which leads to my great thanks of suggesting Levitation. I liked wonder but it was so awful flavor-wise. Call to the Grave is really good, and I do have one, but it's just so mean and I don't want to draw hate. This deck is not meant to win every game, but more so be very resilient. Army of the Damned probably should be in here. I may add it in eventually.

I think Wonder would be a great and easy way to give your zombies flying. You could always use Levitation instead.

I'm sure you considered Grave Titan?

Rite of Replication + Grave Titan can get real nasty.

Call to the Grave can keep the board pretty clear of non zombies, though it'll draw hate for sure.

Then again, doing good in a game of magic will draw hard regardless.

Oh, and Army of the Damned because damn it feels good to put a boat load of zombies onto the field.

I would replace Geralf's Masterpiece for Advanced Stitchwing just cause hes easier to get back is still a flier and doesnt get smaller. Monastery Siege for Ancient Excavation so you can draw a bunch and discard a bunch, this helps with your commander getting some Z's in the grave. I'd also replace Victimize and Buried Alive with Whispering Madness and Day's Undoing. Dark Salvation for Necromantic Selection with all the new wheel affects you should be able to grab something good and its another board wipe. Maalfeld Twins for Overseer of the Damned just because hes super impactfu, a flier makes Z's and kills something when it comes out. Scourge of Nel Toth for Call to the Grave cause sacrifice is really good especially against voltron commander damage decks. Raving Dead for Phyrexian Delver. Wight of Precinct Six for Shepherd of Rot. Entomb for Graf Harvest purely for the menace, butyou could use the other abilitly in a pinch if your commander gets killed to much. Necrogen Mists for Windfall, again just so you get card draw and are still forcing people to discard. Epiphany at the Drownyard for Grave Pact. and to be sure you can get your value from cards like this id nix Nim Deathmantle for Ashnod's Altar. Geralf's Messenger is slow and 2 life wont do too much so id put in Nantuko Husk or Corpse Blockade for more sac outlets.

Oh my bad, use something like Call to the Grave for Gisa

Consider making it a combo deck using and abusing the colours you have. Maybe using things like Price of Glory and Ruric Thar, the Unbowed to control the field kinda like a light stax deck. You seem to like control.

For rashmi I definitely recommend things that let you see your top card. like Magus of the Future and Garruk's Horde. Scrying is your friend as well.
