Crypt Ghast Discussion

If you want to ramp up your ability to control the board cards like Meekstone do the trick
Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is another sac option

Thanks for the +1 and folder add, itachi45! I'm very aware of Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood . It's not a good combo because it's crazy slow. The only reason there's 1x Sanguine Bond here is because it works close enough to Tainted Remedy that it could be a hail-mary in the event I can't get a Tainted Remedy down. That said, I have tried to build a SB+EB deck before, just to have something that I could point to that would be almost likely to have a chance of winning. You can see that old decklist here if you're interested. I haven't retooled in a long time, mostly because I think the combo is completely unrealistic in Modern. But for what it's worth, Crypt Ghast seems essential from my perspective. Cheers!

Crypt Ghast ain't no zombie but it can help guve more manas.
Gempalm Polluter , Shepherd of Rot , and Graveborn Muse are all dope budget zombies that I use in [my Grim Grin deck].(https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/27-05-18-grimgrin-corpse-born/) Gempalm has won me games, and Shepherd has tied many games.

I love this deck! I was building my own grenzo list when I saw this and realized this is both more fun and strangely more consistent than what I was originally going for. In my list, I took out Ancient Tomb , Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth (and Crypt Ghast ), and with unfoiled cards, got the list down to $120! Anyways, thanks for the help with my list, and +1 from me!

Darth_Savage Thanks for giving this so much attention! I'll definitely put some of these in.
Let me go through these here.
Brain Maggot - I like the suggestion to have enchantment creatures and I will definitely add one of the ones you suggested. Not sure if I can completely let go of my Fountain of Renewal though because it's an easy trigger for the infinite combo.
Brainspoil - This is certainly better, but not for the reasons you mentioned. I don't think I would ever manage to use it as a kill spell unless Crypt Ghast were out. What makes it better is that fact that Beseech the Queen requires you to get a card with a CMC less than or equal too the amount of lands you have, meaning I could tutor till turn 5 at the earliest. This can be used much earlier. And you're right, I really only meant this to tutor for the game enders.
Noxious Revival - You're a hero for finding this. I can fix my freaking mana finally.
Thanks for all this it really helped my situation. Can't wait to try it all out.

Darth_Savage I'm definitely gonna consider switching out to Green. One thing though. The two ramp cards you suggested still don't seem like they would be as efficient or overall useful as Crypt Ghast. So I will probably still have to stick with splashing and keeping my current mana situation. If you were to narrow your suggestions down to only one or two cards, what do you think would be the priority?

Hey, nice start lots of good cards here, +1
Cards to consider adding:
- Command Tower: all multi-color decks in Commander should play this land.
- Tainted Peak: good with lots of Swamps.
- Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth: good with Strands of Night, etc.
- Foreboding Ruins: interacts well with a lot of Swamp and Mountain Basic lands.
- Sneak Attack: expensive price, but one of the best ways to cheat big Demons into play with haste and then reanimate them after.
- Waste Not: get a lot of value when your opponents discard cards.
- Magus of the Wheel: another wheel effect, who you can reanimate.
- Feldon of the Third Path: repeatable reanimation.
- Crypt Ghast: ramp, double the amount of mana Swamps make, good with Urborg.
- Chaos Warp: instant permanent removal.
- Talisman of Indulgence: two drop Rakdos mana rock.
- Rakdos Signet
Cards to consider cutting:
- 2x Mountain
- 2x Swamp
- Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded
- Grimoire of the Dead
- Wild Ricochet
- Spirit of the Night: least good Demon here.
- Songs of the Damned
- Macabre Waltz
- Dark Suspicions
