Cellar Door Discussion

Epicurus on Goblin Pact, the EDH Edition

ItsMorphinTime interesting idea. I focus so much with this deck on the massive token creation power and bombardment with cheap creatures that I underutilize the bottom-card manipulation that exists. I think about it any time I cast Bituminous Blast, but I certainly could play more to that theme. Someone had suggested Cellar Door, and I've yet to acquire one to try it out. Do you know of any other good bottom-deck cards?

Epicurus on Goblin Pact, the EDH Edition

Yes to Cellar Door! It's entirely possible that I like it more than I would if it weren't a Donnie Darko reference, but it's definitely going on the maybe board for this deck. It sounds like an even better fit for my Cleverly Named Graveyard Deck.

I have been building and rebuilding a mono black Halloween deck for a few years. I can never decide on which cards to keep and which to cut, wether or not it needs a secondary theme (discard, zombies, etc.) to be a little competitive or just put in anything that fits best and play it for the lolz.

Kudos for making the attempt!

The cards that I would personally recommend cutting are:

Helldozer: it would attract a lot of hate, and is really pretty slow to do much.

Phylactery Lich: a card that is almost exclusively stats, and just a 5/5 (even with indestructible) isn't usually that relevant.

Fated Return: 7 mana to resurrect a creature and maybe scry 2 just isn't that great in my opinion. If you're looking for something similar, I would recommend Rise of the Dark Realms. 2 more mana for all creatures instead of just one.

Curse of Shallow Graves: if I'm reading this correctly, this is only one 2/2 even if you attack with multiple creatures. And only attacking one player. And your opponents get it too.

Marchesa's Decree: conditional card draw with maybe some life loss? Ehhhh....

Trespasser's Curse: great against token decks, but largely irrelevant otherwise.

Mind Shatter: I think this could be good if you have a discard subtheme, which is definitely possible...maybe add a Sangromancer?

Cellar Door: way too inefficient...3 mana for maybe a 2/2?

Lich's Tomb: I think this is too risky and could easily blow you out

Another thing I'm noticing is the severe lack of ramp and card draw. There's plenty of Zombie synergy, but you're never going to get there if you have very little mana and an empty hand. I would recommended adding some Gilded Lotuses, Thran Dynamos, Worn Powerstones, Jet Medallion, as well as Phyrexian Arena or even Sign in Blood.

Lavidicus on Help me out? Mono-black Zombie

I need some help deciding to remove some cards to make it 100 cards commander legal, it’s 105 right now.

Throw me some ideas to add or replace cards too. Feel free to criticize me, tell me if there should be changes. First time really trying to put a deck together. I think I’m having mana and creature cost issues? I’m not sure? Thanks!

Kingtalk on The Black Oath

I run a black oath deck as my pet mono-black deck, he's a great commander with a lot of versatility. Here's a couple cards that might be worthwhile. I like Bloodghast but personally I run Endless Cockroaches just because it's way cheaper and kinda funny. Consuming Vapors is a pretty good way to weed out the board and gain life in the process. Behold the Beyond is a pretty good tutor despite it's cost, and Diabolic Revelation can be a win-con depending on how hard you ramp. I would cut Cellar Door because it's too expensive and unreliable. Stronghold Assassin is a cheaper option in comparison to Attrition and Murder might do you a bit better than Premature Burial. Anowan, the Ruin Sage is good for group sac as is Magus of the Abyss. Archfiend of Depravity helps keep your opponent's board state low. I like Corpse Harvester and Corpse Augur as well. Personally, I'd cut Bloodline Keeper  Flip because for his price he isn't worth it because this isn't a vampire tribal deck. Hell's Caretaker and Doomed Necromancer are good for recursion. Fleshbag Marauder is worthwhile too I think for group sac. I'm also a big fan of Palace Siege and Oversold Cemetery for passive recursion. Flesh Carver has also won me a lot of games, the intimidate is very powerful. I'd consider running Westvale Abbey  Flip as well, potentially a win-con. Shade's Form and Pestilence are also pretty good enchantments. I would substitute Sorin Markov for Torgaar, Famine Incarnate, he's a sac outlet as well as a big body and you can recur his effect and even use it to bring yourself back up to 20 life. Infernal Offering is also a pretty useful card in my experience. Maybe consider Alhammarret's Archive too if you want to make your card draw and life gain more impactful. Those are just a few suggestion, hope it's helpful!! Mono-black is my passion haha

Doctorlobo89 on Trostani Graveyard Tokens

2 years ago

Hello, I really enjoy your decks and the channel and the thought of Trostani as a graveyard deck is interesting to tell you the truth. Including exile tactics to make tokens is also fun and unheard of with in my local card shop. Honestly I want to build this deck and try for myself the concept.

Wouldn't Anointed Procession be of use along with Cellar Door and or Void Attendant?

Please keep up the games I look forward to more decks to inspire future builds.
