Dark Salvation Discussion

Vara_Ithilinder on Call to the Grave

Placed some updates to the deck. Switched out Vampire Sovereign for Lord of the Accursed . Alos removed one Sovereign's Bite . I plane to remove all of the rest pf the Sovereign's Bite for Gray Merchant of Asphodel . It may hurt my deck but i have to have my lady love Liliana in the deck. I will replace Liliana, Untouched By Death with Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip. I feel there is better synergy and i can still get the famous removal Liliana of the Veil is loved for, But the second ability of this one is better for a creature based beck like this. The ultimate is also amazing if one can manage to get it off. Looking to replace Dark Salvation i love it but i feel something like Duress , Despise , or Thoughtseize . Though i think it is good i have played a few rounds with friends and feel it is more a sideboard card as i was always playing a creature instead of Dark Salvation , or i would play something cheaper like Go for the Throat to cast other cards in my hand.

Hey SirHerpaderp

I think those are some really nice cuts, can't agree with you more except for one. Call to the Grave I would play, it's a decent card wich put's pressure on your opponents. Instead I would take out Geth, Lord of the Vault . If you don't have the money for Damnation then the more expensive Life's Finale is alright.

Things to cut for your counterspells, Dread Summons yes, Dark Salvation yes, Living Death no. The last one is really to good to cut, especially if you gonna keep your opponents graveyards empty of value with your commander. Grimgrin, Corpse-Born I would cut as well, since he wants to sac stuff, but your ethernalized creatures will be gone forever if you sac him to grimgrin. If you really need a sac outlet I would go for Yahenni, since she can survive boardwhipes.

Other slot's im not so sure about are: Midnight Reaper and i'm sorry Bontu's Monument The monument does not provide any bonus in activating your God more than once, only provides a discount on casting spells. A true mana rock would be a better choice for this slot, since it can be used for both! Mind Stone for example. The lifeloss the monument gives, your commander will provide as well. Don't forget about Paradox Haze wich gives you 2 upkeeps ;)

Hope this helps again! And you know where to find me if you want to discuss some more! :)

Ripwater, I Made some changes (and future changes) to the deck, but i still want to add a section of counterspells and might cut Dread Summons , Dark Salvation , Living Death and some Zombie (maye Rot Hulk , Grimgrin, Corpse-Born ? I should run at least 4 I believe.

Hey SirHerpaderp

Training Grounds is an auto include. You should not doubt about it.

Some cards I would add are:

These are just some suggestion (I know they can be a problem budgetwise).

Things i would cut:

  • Corpse Harvester In my opinion a bit too slow and a bit too expensive
  • Geth, Lord of the Vault Your commander does it better
  • Midnight Reaper Think there is better draw then this guy
  • Stitcher Geralf A bit underwhelming and he exiles the targets you want to exile with your god
  • Josu Vess, Lich Knight Way to expensive and you have Army of the Damned.
  • Dark Salvation Way to expensive
  • Dread Summons For the mana you pump into it, it's not a guarenteed hit. For that amount of mana you can cast other stuff or activate your God for more value :)
  • Vanquisher's Banner I would run a Consecrated Sphinx for this
  • Coat of Arms Would get another mana rock for more activations on your god/or another counterspell to protect him. Don't think you need the coat and often it can work against you.
  • Hopefully these tips will help you a bit and don't underestimate the power of your commander, really play him in a bit of a aggro/control version. But always keep mana open to activate him!

    Hi! Zombie tribal is one of my favorite decks too. I think Dark Salvation is a must. The same about Endless Ranks of the Dead . I also like Grimoire of the Dead . Oath of Liliana is another fun card but you'd better find at least a couple of Planeswalkers. For example Jace, Unraveler of Secrets (card advantage and control) and Liliana, Death's Majesty or Liliana, Untouched By Death . Zombie lords: Death Baron , Cemetery Reaper , Lord of the Undead . Board wipe is strongly recommended (at least one of these): Wrath of God Day of Judgment , Cleansing Nova , Damnation , Cyclonic Rift . Useful creatures: Diregraf Colossus , Metallic Mimic . Mana stabilization: Unclaimed Territory , Mana Confluence , Path of Ancestry . Good luck in brewing!

    Hmm maybe:

    If I remember correctly you also didn't want to use counterspells in this deck correct?
