Crypt Ghast Discussion
1 day ago
lol @ rich, competitive snobs. So, I noticed Uborg, and have never used it, but I tend to see it paired with Cabal Coffers which would obviously be amazing in your deck. Magus of the Coffers, Crypt Ghast, or even Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would also provide redundancy or budget alternatives. But, I've never played monoBlack and maybe you don't need any extra mana. If you ever want to pull more out of your graveyard, I think my Graveyard Factory runs at least 18 reanimators. I'm absolutely in love with Living Death.

Hey this is Ben, the deck looks great! Twisted Abomination, Unbreathing Horde, Wight of Precinct Six, and Victim of Night aren't good enough IMO for EDH. I can tell you're committed to the straight zombies line, but Crypt Ghast and/or Nirkana Revenant are really strong ramp. The same goes for Gauntlet of Power. Considering that your general is Sidisi, Lifeline seems like an auto-include, along with Leyline of the Void to hate out your opponents' creatures (just a good strategy anyways too). I would add more card draw in the form of Dark Prophecy and Necropotence too, which are extra good with Nykthos. Really, everything is open to you since you have a tutor as your general. Lastly, I would suggest Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed because he's amazing for recursion of anything, including your bomb sorceries, and also Phyrexian Reclamation for the most flexible recursion available. Can't wait to see it in real life!

Pontiff of Blight does fit in your commander colors as . Also have you considered Zombie Trailblazer, Deathmark Prelate, Empty the Pits, Grave Defiler, Havengul Runebinder, Call to the Grave, Corpse Harvester, Necromaster Dragon, Noxious Ghoul, Gempalm Polluter, Grave Titan, Vengeful Dead, Custodi Lich, Scourge of Nel Toth, Corpse Augur, Crypt Ghast, Raving Dead, Lim-Dul's Vault, Patriarch's Bidding, or Westvale Abbey Flip.

I am glad I am not the only one that has this problem, its hard to gamble with a 5 drop.
I like Crypt Ghast I love, Magus not so much. I had the same problem with him as well, but less often. You right in thinking he will stick around longer than Black Market. His weakness to removal makes the conditions kind of the same.

Cool deck idea. Heads up, your commander determines your decks identity. If you want a white/black deck you need a white/black commander.
The most important aspect of commander is Ramp and Card draw. Black helps ramp itself with things like Crypt Ghast and it also does really well at paying life for cards.

Crypt Ghast isn't EDH legal for an all black deck since it has a white mana symbol in the Rules Text.

I love black market but the hate is really hard to handle,causing me often to much aggro in multiplayer rounds.

@DarkMagician: Necropotence will more then likely return after I playtested without it. Having gone back on what happened that game my mistake was playing it for draw when I was in a pinch and had to rely on Crypt Ghast for health and literally did not leave 8 to 10 health for nearly 9 rounds of stalling (Thank you Linvala, Keeper of Silence and Blinding Angel for that). It almost cost me the game merely because I couldn't get any card draw without sacrificing health that put me in a very dangerous position the one time I didn't have reliable lifegain already present on the board. I realize now its more user error but still going to play test some before swapping back.
I decided to run Rune-Scarred Demon and Indulgent Tormentor/ Desecration Demon to try and have some viable demons thrown in there. I agree on the angels, as much as I love the mythic side having two of them leave little to be desired. I'm thinking Baneslayer Angel and Sorin Markov. Tree of Perdition as well.
