Creakwood Liege Discussion on Vhati (il-Dal) is this? (Suggestions Please)

4 days ago

First things first, have a +1 from me just for your choice of commander. I have lots of suggestions for you.


Dakmor Salvage - Taps for black, dredge 2.

Ebon Stronghold / Havenwood Battleground - Sac lands that can be recurred with Life from the Loam.

Mosswort Bridge - A great way of sneaking something in once you establish a board presence.

Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers - It's better than a forest.

Rogue's Passage - Could win you the game with Phage or Vraska.

Shizo, Death's Storehouse - Better than a Swamp, insta-win with Phage.

Svogthos, the Restless Tomb - Turns into a graveyard powered fatty. I have a spare.

Volrath's Stronghold - Pricey, but insanely powerful.


Creakwood Liege - Great for any creature heavy deck in B/G.

Ghoultree - If you power up Jarad an his friends this is a 10/10 one .

Golgari Grave-Troll - Graveyard powered fatty that has Dredge 6.

Golgari Guildmage - Sac creatures to return better ones from your graveyard or generate +1/+1 counters. What's not to like? I have a spare for you.

Korozda Guildmage - Grants Intimidate or sacs creatures for saprolings. Very useful.

Lord of Extinction - Huge graveyard powered fatty.

Sewer Nemesis - Target yourself for graveyard powered fun.

Spiritmonger - Just take a look at this one.

Splinterfright - Graveyard powered self feeder. Trample.

Vulturous Zombie - You know you want a Voluptuous Zombie :D

Other spells:

Life from the Loam - Recurring land recursion.

Deadbridge Chant - Simply amazing, and I have a spare you can have.

Death's Presence / Golgari Germination- Nothing goes to waste!

If you're still looking for better creatures, I'd go with Creakwood Liege, Joiner Adept, and Deathgreeter. For more infect creatures, Blight Mamba looks like it would be up your alley.

Some thoughts/suggestions:

Creakwood Liege for a potentially massive late-game combo with Worm Harvest.

Victim of Night as mainboard removal, Deathmark for the sideboard.

Dakmor Salvage to help with Retrace.

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth for extra mana fixing.

Grisly Salvage instead of Commune with the Gods. You want lands more than you want Zombie Infestation in your hand, I suppose.

What about Sundering Growth as SB artifact/enchantment hate? I get that Ancient Grudge and Ray of Revelation are more reliable in this build, but you need an out to Rest in Peace, and populate is highly relevant for you. Just a thought.

I'll admit this is very tricky deck Askani28. The combo with Dakmor Salvage + Gaea's Blessing goes like this:

With Dakmor Salvage in your graveyard trigger it's Dredge effect, this in turn possibly mills Gaea's Blessing...

Gaea's Blessing's last ability will trigger and return your entire graveyard to your library...

Your board state is completely unaffected but you now have your entire deck to once again draw upon.

I know it's not a game winner but with an advanced board state the other deck synergies really kick in.

Once again you will draw your Dakmor Salvage & Fetch Lands but now they are bullets for Constant Mists and Worm Harvest,

Any of the mana weenies you chump blocked with will probably get a boost from a few Creakwood Lieges when replayed,

and you get back all your Bramblecrushs and Maelstrom Pulses so you don't have to play them too carefully.

It's a combo you can't predict but once you learn the deck you can play around it's powerful impact,

I don't understand your Dakmor Salvage + Gaea's Blessing combo. Maybe I'm missing something here, but I don't see any special interaction between the two. What's your combo?

PS: Love the worms though! I've won games with Creakwood Liege so many times, he's really fun :)
