Cruel Edict Discussion

Also, if you want to annoy your opponent:

Sandwurm Convergence has the amusing side-effect of shutting down Vampire Nocturnus .

Elegant Edgecrafters has the amusing effect that it can't be blocked by common deathtouching vampires.

Giant Adephage can also trample over deathtouching blockers, and creates a copy of itself, effectively surviving.

Precursor Golem is unusually punishing to non-targeted removal: a Murder will kill all of them, but a Cruel Edict only kills one. They also get really fun with the Prey Upon or Giant Growth you have in your deck.

I would also say you should replace Plummet with Stinging Shot , since it hates Vampire Nighthawk and can be cycled away if it's not needed.

Dedicated zombie tribal could be cool, and it seems you're already headed in that direction, so I'd check for any specific zombie lords you're missing ( Lord of the Undead for example) if you want to pursue that direction for your deck.

As for specific adds and subtracts;

Subtracts; Killing Wave (people will just pay the life for what they want to keep, I'd replace this with Torment of Hailfire or Exsanguinate or an actual board wipe). Bontu's Last Reckoning almost makes you skip your entire next turn just so you can cast Damnation for one less mana. I'd recommend Mutilate over it if anything. Cruel Edict is bad, Liliana's Triumph and various other cards are much better for this effect, probably including Innocent Blood . Liliana's Elite is probably mediocre most of the time, Liliana's Reaver is just bad. Graveyard Marshal isn't actually great for zombies, there are lots of better ways to make zombie tokens if you want. I wouldn't recommend him. Desecration Demon will probably never be useful in EDH so I wouldn't recommend him, if your opponents really can't just handle taking the 6 damage to the face in the air then they'll definitely just have a creature to sacrifice to stop it. Its not a good card in EDH at all unfortunately. I think Greed or Erebos, God of the Dead > Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip. Also, I wouldn't recommend some of your planeswalkers; i love liliana but some of those cards are downright useless in EDH (if you manage to do a single thing with Liliana, Death Wielder I'd be shocked).

Add; Dictate of Erebos ( Grave Pact with flash). Dark Prophecy , Midnight Reaper and various other similar effects to help you draw more (which I think your deck will want to do, and black has a million options for drawing cards, especially when things die). Definitely Corpse Augur and Graveborn Muse too. Toxic Deluge is also a better board wipe than most of your removal. I'd probably recommend Stitcher's Apprentice as well, to help you get some cards in your graveyard. I'll think of more if you want, there's such a wide variety of cards to use in black zombies.

Also, your deck has multiple tutors, but not really any obvious win conditions to look for. Can you tell me what you think you'll be tutoring for most of the time? I'd say Gray Merchant of Asphodel as its probably your strongest card, but you also don't have much reanimation to back it up a lot of the time.

BS-T on Lost - a challenge of ...

OK so I'd not been active on TO for a little while and after clearing up a bunch of notifications I popped over to my list of decks to find.... this nonsense:

I'd titled the list: "Lost".

Now. I'm pretty sure I've only stuck a 5c commander into the list because I had to put something, however, I now have no memory or idea what I was thinking of or where this was going - any thoughts on what my connection was!!??

Nice list. Your deck might enjoy running Dragon Breath as it's free haste and fire-breathing for your commander. If I were you I'd also run Terminate over Doom Blade. Crux of Fate also goes pretty well given your commander is a dragon which would probably hit more of your opponent's creatures than Languish. Commander's Sphere is good but Dragon's Hoard would work better since you could draw more cards with it without losing the mana rock to do so. Grasp of Fate is another good card that you could replace Banishing Light with. You should also replace Cruel Edict with Diabolic Edict as that card can be played at instant speed.

I would recommend playing Diabolic Edict over Cruel Edict, cause it's instant speed.

And if you really want, you can target yourself with it (I wouldn't suggest it though).

Landonius upon inspection yes, at first I was going to say "No due to instant speed casting" but than I realized I had mistaken Cruel Edict for Diabolic Edict I'm swapping these out, and in the end the 1 life difference of Geth's Verdict cant compare to instant speed.

Geth's Verdict is probably a better option than Cruel Edict, right?
